The Abrams tank is the most advanced battle tank in the world, but there is always room to improve. It has been rumored that the Army has been working on developing a lighter 60-ton Abrams tank to replace the current M1A2 Abrams. This can be for various reasons from increased speed and maneuverability to better fuel consumption.
This makes me want to buy some cool Magpul tactical accessories for my AR-15.

We’re fans of The Walking Dead here at Armory Blog, who isn’t looking forward to the zombie apocalypse? Well if you’re a fan of zombies and guns then these cool new Walking Dead zombie target prints are a must. These limited-edition target inspired posters were designed by Jordan Crane and hand-printed by Jordan Rae. Each of the four prints available were illustrated by a different artist: Lisa Hanawalt, Jon Vermilyea, Johnny Ryan and Crane.
They were inspired by range shooting targets, but we don’t suggest you actually shoot them as each run is limited to just 100 copies, and they’re not cheap. Each of the prints are signed by both Kirkman and the artist, prints go for $40 or a set of four for $150.

George Clooney stars in the new suspense thriller ‘The American’ as a deadly assassin. As a deadly assassin I’m sure Clooney’s character is well versed with various weapons. So it was pretty shocking to see his character using a Ruger Mini-14 as a sniper rifle. To be fair, it could be one of the newer series of “accurized” Ruger Mini-14 rifles. Clooney’s Mini-14 also appears to have a collapsible stock, side-mounted scope and a really big silencer. There’s no doubt the Ruger Mini-14 is a cool looking, and very reliable, rifle. But the sniper rifle of choice for an assassin? That’s a stretch.
