Mythbusters’ Kari Byron with a big bad gun



I really like the show Mythbusters, not really because I’m into the scientific methods they use and the interesting myths they try and bust. But because of the lovely Kari Bryon and how they seem to try and blow something up or shoot at something in almost every show, it has to be one of the best shows on the Discovery Channel. Well co-host Grant Imahara posted some of these images from one of their current myths their attempting to bust on his Twitter page, yup that’s Kari with a .50 BMG sniper rifle.

Modern Combat: Sandstorm iPhone app



Are you a Call of Duty Modern Warfare addict like I am? Then you’ll really enjoy the new app Modern Combat: Sandstorm for the iPhone. The new game is available for both the iPhone and iPod touch from Gameloft, and it throws you into the heat of modern combat and battlefields. In the game you are assigned to “Mission Sandstorm” and your mission is to eliminate terrorist and enemy insurgents. The game has 10 feature missions in Middle Eastern battlefields from city streets, ship yards, hospitals and more.

HK MP5 Nintendo Wii controller



The Nintendo Wii is the most popular gaming console right now, and what makes it so fun to play is the cool motion control “Wiimotes.” Well here is one that is sure to turn heads, a replica Hecklor & Kock MP5. Displayed at a Hong Kong trade show it is a 1:1 scale copy of the popular German submachine gun. The company who made it plans to sell the new Wiimote in the U.S. but no price has been set as of yet, but we’re sure it’s gonna be pricey. The MP5 features a built-in Wiimote, nunchuck, MotionPlus sensor, speaker, rumble support and a rechargeable battery via USB.

What games will this be used with? We’re guessing Call of Duty!

Governor Signs AB962 Restricting Ammunition sales in California



This is a sad day for Californian firearms enthusiasts. The bill that would restrict ammunition sales in California, AB962, was signed recently by Governor Schwarzenegger. The Governor’s comments are below:

“To the Members of the California State Assembly: I am signing Assembly Bill 962.

This measure would require vendors of handgun ammunition to keep a log of information on handgun ammunition sales, store ammunition in a safe and secure manner, and require the face to-face transfer of ammunition sales.

The Czech Army no longer using the Vz. 58



The Czech Army has used the venerable Vz. 58 since 1958, it has been used by other countries in Eastern Europe, Asia and Africa as well, but it looks like the Vz. 58 will be retired very soon. The Czech news site, Ceskenoviny.cz, reported that the Czech military will be spending quite a bit of money to update their armed forces by 2013. A possible replacement may be the CZ S805 rifle that was developed along with the Czech army. The Vz. 58 is a great rifle, while it looks very similar to the AK-47 on the outside, on the inside it closer resembles the German stg-44, the world’s first assault rifle. Hopefully with the retirement of the Vz. 58 in Czechoslovakia it means affordable Vz. 58’s for enthusiasts here in the US and elsewhere.

The new arms will replace machine guns 58 based on the Soviet-made Kalashnikovs AK 47, Pravo writes.
“It was originally said that only special units will get offensive handguns. The whole military could be rearmed for two billion crowns,” Seda told Pravo.

It writes that the military also plans to spend 3.49 billion crowns on the purchase of light armoured vehicles. Next year 418 million crowns are to be spent on the purchase and a greater part in 2013 and 2014.

Remington buys silencer makers AAC



It looks like Remington has just purchased suppressor manufacturer ACC (Advanced Armament Corp), the deal was finalized on October 2nd, making ACC a division of Remington Military Products. ACC founder, Kevin Brittingham, talked about the deal on his blog. He claims that the crew at ACC will still be making suppressors like usual, but will be working out of a newer and larger location with more R&D resources at their disposal. So hopefully this means even better products from ACC! Remington is owned by The Freedom Group, which is part of Cerberus Capital Management. We’re looking forward to good things from this merger.

“We welcome Kevin and his team of engineers and designers on board,” commented Theodore (Ted) Torbeck, CEO of Remington and its parent, Freedom Group, Inc. “With the acquisition of AAC, we can enhance our research and development capabilities and deliver a more competitive product to the end user; further strengthening Remington’s position in the domestic and international markets.”

CCW holder threatens to shoot his iPhone



Well one unhappy customer at an Apple Store in a Cincinnati mall got a little out of hand with his anger towards his iPhone. He told an Apple Store worker, “so mad I could pop a 9mm at it.” He then revealed he actually had a concealed 9mm, a major no no if you’re a legal concealed carry wearer. Donald Goodrich, then went on to say “I’ll do it right now. Look!” He then opened up the side of his shirt to show the Apple worker his 9mm handgun, again, something a responsible concealed carry permit holder should never do.

The Apple employee remained calm however, possibly because they deal with many angry iPhone owners, she then told the man she will get a tech to fix it. She then informed her manager who called police. The man was then charged with “aggravated menacing, causing fear of harm.” He may even be charged with gun possession even though he has a concealed permit because he failed to inform the officer he had a gun on him.

As an iPhone thumping gun totter, these kinds of events anger me. I am a big believer in our 2nd amendment rights, but it is irresponsible idiots like this that make gun owners look bad. Looks like the only guns he’ll have from now on will be his gun apps on his iPhone.

Farmer’s daughter kills terrorist with his own AK-47



Rukshana Kauser, 21, lives in Shahdra Sharief which is about 20 miles from the ceasefire line drawn between Indian and Pakistani forces. It is safe to assume that they live in a rough part of town, I don’t mean muggers stealing your wallet rough, but terrorist kicking down your door and demanding food and a place to stay rough. And that is exactly what three gunmen that were believed to be Pakistani militants did.

It is common for militants in the area to demand food and shelter from villagers, but Kauser would have none of it. Three militants broke into their home and attacked her father, Noor Mohammad, who refused to give into their demands. Kauser was hiding under the bed as the attack took place. She then ran towards one of the attackers and hit him with an axe causing him to fall and drop his AK-47. She grabbed the gun and shot the terrorist on the spot where he died. She also wounded another militant as he fled.

Her bravery won’t be overlooked however, she is up for a nomination for the president’s gallantry award. And if it is confirmed that the terrorist she killed is Uzafa Shah, a wanted Pakistani militant commander, she will also get a £4,000 (about $6,400) reward. Rukshana Kauser gave the militants a rude shock, as they are usually treated like kings because of the fear they instill in the locals. Kauser said, “I couldn’t bear my father’s humiliation. If I’d failed to kill him, they would have killed us.” It is bravery like miss Kauser showed, that is what we need more of in this day and age.
