2013 Gun Fail Compilation

Please don't be that guy...  You know the dude who brings his girl to the range and provides no instruction what so ever on how to hold a rifle or a handgun.  I'll give you a little pro tip: bring something with low recoil.  Your lady's first shooting experience shouldn't be with those custom hand loaded .44s that are designed to take down a 300 pound wild boar.  Bring a 9mm or a .22 and if you are going shotgun (bad choice for the ladies) try to start her with birdshot. 

About every six months or so, someone puts together a nice shooting fail compliation.  This one isn't bad and has lots of dudes that filmed their chicks damn near dropping weapons. Lol, there are a number of dudes who fail in this vid too, and I particularly enjoyed the dude doing the one handed shotgun and the thumbs up afterwards.

Crossbow Training: Daryl From The Walking Dead

I've gotten behind in the Walking Dead, and haven't seen any of the newest season.  I've enjoyed this show in the past, and I'm hoping it doesn't go on longer than it should like Sons of Anarchy.  Everybody loves Daryl's character because he is a caring red neck and uses a crossbow.  I'll take a silenced rifle over a crossbow, buy everyone has their own preferences for the zombie apocalypse.  Conan managed to find some early training footage of Daryl's crossbow skills, and boy has he come a long way....

Btw, I just randomly Google'd Daryl Walking Dead Crossbow and found the image above.  Isn't it awesome?!?!


AR500 Steel Body Armor

I've had quite a few folks ask me about body armor.  There are all kinds of options, and if you live in California there almost a mandate that some crazy dude selling armor has to buy a booth at every gun show.  If you are in harms way on a regular basis it is definitely worth spending some extra cash and getting high quality armor.  If you are concerned about a zombie attack or other apocalyptic event, and just want something for a rainy day, steel armor may be your best bet. 

Instead of each plate costing several hundred bucks these steel armor plates can be had for as low as $65 each.  Steel is heavy and some folks say that once the bullet hits the armor it could splatter and sent shards of lead into your face and arms.   Although I haven't evaluated those statements personally, I can tell you that if you are looking for a setup that costs under $150 that is Level III, you aren't gonna find much better. 

What is your preferred armor choice?


Gun Ownership & Racism

I hate hearing about another "racism" study in society.  I feel like racism died a long time ago, and I've yet to meet anyone that was turned down for a job because of their skin color.  Racism is now something that media likes to throw around and accuse people with when they disagree with popular opinion.  Check out this video on Fox News about gun ownership and racism:

This is absurd... I wonder how the research for this study was even funded.



Hornady Rapid Safe

Hornady has a pretty cool concept for a new gun safe that is expected to launch at shot show.  The Rapid Safe stows the gun in a cool pop up style slot that reminds me of an old VHS player.  Also, the Rapid Safe can be opened via a key, numeric combo, or best of all an RFID bracelet.  Check out the vid:

I really like the RFID option and I hope the bracelet doesn't say something like "THIS HOUSE IS PROTECTED BY SMITH & WESSON" on it.  The key combo has a really strange layout and I'm not sure why the keys would be laid out like that.  The Rapid Safe sounds awfully familiar to the Gun Box I wrote about a few weeks ago, but I bet the Rapid Fire will be the frist one to market.  This safe has an MSRP of $275 which seems a little high, but perhaps it will be cheaper on Amazon or something.
