I Wish They All Could Be Israeli Girls

In the US most women carry a purse, or maybe a toy dog if they really want to show off. In Israel they carry M4s, I’m pretty sure most guys there think twice before using a cheesy pickup line with these ladies.

All kidding aside, she’s most likely an IDF soldier stationed in part of Israel where she’s required to carry her weapon on her at all times while on leave (notice the rifle in the upper left part of the picture as well). The rifle she’s carrying appears to be a M16A1 carbine of some sort, nice shorts too.

Chocolate Glock



Now here’s a Glock I can actually like! Just kidding Glock fans, but seriously, this delicious handgun is hand-crafted from almost a pound of chocolate. It even comes in a real gun case. They also sell chocolate ammo and chocolate grenades, I hope they add a Chocolate AR-15 to their line-up, I’d be the first to order some assault chocolate. They go for $29.99 and make a great gift for gun enthusiasts and chocolate lovers, just don’t try and hold up any banks with it, especially in the summer. Check them out at chocolateweapons.com.

New F-22 Raptor Deliveries Halted


The fleet of the Air Force’s F-22 Raptors have been grounded for the past two months, that also includes newly-build Raptors from the factory. Lockeed Martin as well as US government test pilots cannot perform the necessary flight tests to allow new F-22s into service with the Air Force. The grounding of the fleet was initially caused by an F-22 crash last December in Alaska which was suspected of being caused by the F-22′s oxygen generating system failing. According to Defense News:

Technically, four aircraft have been delivered to the Air Force, but are being stored at Marietta pending the lifting of the flight restrictions. When the Air Force resumes F-22 flight operations, those aircraft will be flown to Langley Air Force Base (AFB), Va.

Two further aircraft, 4182 and 4183, have been completed, but the company and DCMA can’t do required flight testing on those jets, Stinn said. The aircraft are being stored in a near-flight-ready status, she said.

Aircraft “4182 and 4183 were scheduled to deliver in July, but they’re not in a position to do any sort of test flights, so we can’t deliver,” Stinn said. “Maybe early August, but we don’t have a definitive date.”

Aircraft 4182 and onwards, which have not undergone any of their acceptance flights, have yet to receive their final stealth coatings. The coatings are applied only after a number of flight tests have been completed, and as a result, a backlog is slowly building up.
Before the stealth coatings are applied, the aircraft fly coated only with a primer.

Tri-Cor .38 Special Cartridge


The .38 Special round isn’t the optimal round for self defense these days, it’s been overshadowed by it’s big brother the .357 Magnum as well as a plethora of auto-pistol cartridges. But the venerable old .38 special can still pack a punch, especially the Tri-Cor .38 special cartridge. Constitution Arms Tri-Cor .38 Special cartridge is a triple-projetile load with three conocal shaped bullets stacked on top of each other. The three projectiles separates and then tumbles when it enters tissue, creating a larger wound channel and a better chance of hitting your target.
