Magazine Capacity Time Trials

The government is looking to quell the the fears of the sheeple by potentially banning standard capacity high capacity magazines.  The logic being that you will be feel safer, and society will be rid of all evil people.  The reality is potential laws banning high caps really won't do anything except punish law abiding citizens.  Here is a vid, although quite long but almost scientific study, on magazines and reload times.  At about ten minutes they test how far someone can run during the reload.  Let me tell you folks it wasn't that far; even with the n00b shooter, the fella running wasn't able to close the distance.  Lol, the New York Reload (which consists of using multiple revolvers) test was interesting; I bet that bag of revolvers (good band name?) must have weighed a ton!

So what is the take home?  You can see it all in the pic below...

Working Printable AR15 Lower?

I've seen printable AR15 lowers in the past, and they still aren't fully vetted in my book.  If you may recall this vid of printed lowers failing on the range, which isn't exactly a vote of confidence.   Defense Distributed has released a new video of them wasting a crap ton of ammo in a beta mag thoroughly testing the DIY lowers until their trigger fingers get tired.  Although the vid is pretty uneventful, the lower doesn't appear to crack in the vid.  Maybe Ares Armor could find a way to fulfill the needs of their customers by setting up a 3D printer and offering similar DIY AR services. 

The plans are free, but I'm assuming a printer would be super expensive.  I'm guessing the amount of plastic has to be less than $15, and I think for that price I'd gladly give it a shot.



80% Lowers Back In Stock?

UPDATE: DIYArmory kindly pointed out I biffed the pricing on their lowers.  Sorry folks I dropped the ball on this one.  The actual pricing is $149.95 for the raw lowers and $174.95 for the annodized version.  Expect a future post with more details about DIYArmory soon.  Once, again sorry guys!

Those of you still jonesing for an 80% complete AR lower may be in luck.  Ares Armor is still back ordered, as of 2/18/13, and I don't anticipate them getting caught up on orders anytime soon.  DIY armory has 80% lowers available for preorder, but they will cost you a whopping $200 $149.95 for standard lower and $225 $174.95 for an anodized lower.  Yikes, you could buy a completed lower for that price.  Just for comparison Ares offers the same damn thing, $80 for standard and $90 for anodized, for significantly lower prices.  You can use the coupon code ar15news to save $10 on your order at DIY Armory, but honestly this feels like price gouging.  H/T AR15 news


Movie: The Movie: 2V

Well, the Oscars are finished.  Despite my best guess that Lincoln would take it all, I was quite surprised that Argo won.  Anywho, check out Jimmy Kimmel's epic movie, star studded collaboration of satire in Movie: The Movie: 2V.


Jimmy Kimmel's Valentine's Day Prank

I'm anxiously awaiting Jimmy Kimmels's post Oscar viral vid, but until then I give you a great Valentine's Day prank he asked his viewers to help with.  Kimmel commissioned his fans to give their significant other a gift they wouldn't want; hilarity ensues.  Happy Friday.
