The Only Possible Outcome Of Gun Registration

It isn't just happening here in sunny California; gun registration is taking place across the country.  Make no mistake, nothing good will come from gun registration.  There won't be armored vehicles cruising down the streets rounding up the guns of innocent law abiding citizens.  Those are just lies that are based in fear.  The folks that write these kinds of laws are all about slow calculated moves.  The long gun registartion bill that was passed in California was signed over three years ago, and is just now taking effect.  I saw this interesting news piece out of a Canadian press site about the passing of these awful laws in the states. 

Wow, that clip from Obama at the beginning is awfully telling.  It is unfortunate that popular culture has give us incredibly short memory spans and people seem to forget and move on so quickly.  Stay vigilant folks...

Polymer Ammo Is Finally Here

It was about a year ago that I first heard about polymer cased ammo.  The idea is that the polymer is much lighter and could potentially be easier to produce.  Although it is 30% lighter than traditional ammo, the cost is about $2 per round for .308.  Lucky Gunner got their hands on some of PCP's polymer cased ammo (I asked PCP a year ago and they said they'd get back to me...) and put together a great review.

I was really disappointed to hear this ammo is so expensive for just being lighter and not any better than traditional match ammo.  As they say in the vid, for military the light weight makes sense, but when the zombies come I'm gonna be in a lawn chair on my roof with a sniper rifle not rucking ammo through the suburbs.  Unless PCP get the price down to cheaper than steel, I don't see this being a big hit with the firearms community.  Check out PCP's website for more info.

Richard Ryan: Minigun & Huey vs. Car

To say I'm jealous of Richard Ryan would be an undersment.  I'm have no idea how he gets access to bad ass weapons and high speed cameras, but he seems to have out done himself this time.  In preparation for the upcoming Lone Survivor movie, Ryan has took a trip out in a Huey and rock n' rolled a minigun on an old beater car. 

That was bad ass!  I really enjoyed those slow motion shots of the rounds blowing through the windshield.  I'll be at the theater to this weekend to catch Lone Survivor, and I'll do a full review on Monday.

Full Auto Glock: DIY Bumpfire Stock

We can still be friends if you like Glocks, but as for me and my house we will shoot 1911s.  Joking aside, Glocks are fun weapons and really the only handgun that the internet consistently tests after baking it in a variety of food items.  Making your Glock full auto is not only a little bit dangerous, it is also easily accomplished with a board, peg, and a lawn chair (the chair is optional of course).  I could explain it more but it is more easily viewed in the vid below.  Just a head's up there is a little bit of swearing in the vid:

Yes, it is basically a tool to bump fire a pistol, but I enjoyed seeing the added craftsman ship of adding the vertical grip underneath.  As to be expected, you won't be accurate with a device like this, but the point is to see how fast you can waste ammo have fun.  If you'd like to learn how to make your own bump fire stock, check out this informative post.

Shotgun Spreader Muzzle Break

Shotguns have been used in combat since WWI, and back during Vietnam some shotguns were outfitted with a unique spreader device.  As to be expected, it spreads the shot out much quicker and gives a big wide kill zone.  Not really all that useful for waterfowl, but more for taking out bad guys at close range.  Check out the video:

I like this device although I have no practical need for this.  I plan on sniping when the zombie invasion happens, but if I were knee deep in "walkers" this would be a great way to clear a path.  Honestly the most practical use would be to mix the spreader with those shotgun rounds filled with flower seeds.  Seriously, this could be a great marketing move for a modern day Johnny Appleseed!

The spreader is made by a company called Paradigm, and here is what they have to say about their Gator Shotgun Spreader:

The GATOR spreads the shot out into a narrow horizontal pattern.  It is excellent for certain tactical applications, home defense, and hunting situations in thick brush against fast moving 4 legged or 2 legged game.

Like its predecessor, the GATOR is designed to be most effective when using #4 lead buckshot, which allows it to spread into an optimal pattern that enhances ones ability to put lead on target. NOTE: The GATOR has been tested with 00 Buck, but we do not recommend its use due to the potential for poor pattering. STEEL SHOT OR SLUGS SHOULD NEVER BE USED.

  • Spreads shot up to 6 feet at 12 yards
  • Reduces felt recoil
  • Easily installed on any choke equipped shotgun
  • Door breaching capable
