Ever wonder what ever happens to stolen or confiscated guns when the cops get their hands on them? They usually end up in the police departments property and evidence unit and stored away in the departments gun room.

The U.S. Marine Corps and Crossman have joined forces to release a Marine Corps branded line of airsoft products. It’s not new to see firearms makers teaming up with airsoft and bb gun makers to release a branded line of products, with the popularity of airsoft on the rise it’s a great branding effort by the U.S. Marine Corps. The military already advertises on TV, at sporting events and with their own merchandise lines, so it’s no surprise that they want to target airsoft users who are their prime demographic.

A lot of us joke about the potential for a zombie apocolypse, or we use a zombie uprising as a codeword for a SHTF scenario. Well according to the Center for Disease Control we should plan accordingly for a zombie apocolypse, don’t believe me? Check it out here. All kidding aside, the CDC has really used the zombie phenomenon as a fun way to get attention to the importance of being prepared for various situations.

They’ve recently released a series of posters to help spread the word too, and they’re free! Check them out here, they have two verions available in both 18″ x 24″ or 24″ x 36. Jump on them before they’re gone.

What Was Your First AR-15 Build Project?

One of the best things about the AR-15 rifle is how easy it is to build and customize it to the exact specs you want. Feel like making a AR for hunting or long distance shooting? No problem, just pick up an upper with a longer/heavier barrel and slap on the optics of your choice. Feel like an Mforgery? There’s countless options available from lots of manufacturers. I always scope out the custom AR-15 build threads on all the various gun forums I’m on, I like to see the different ways AR shooters make their AR-15 rifles their own. I recently stumbled upon Gunschicken’s AR build and it really reminded me of my first AR-15 project.

Got a AR-15 build story of your own you’d like to share? Post a link or tell us about it in the comments section below. BTW, the AR pictured above is my budget AR build, more details on it in a future post.

Watching a bullet impact ballistic gelatin is always fun, here’s a cool .gif you can watch over and over. Any guesses on the caliber bullet that is? I’m guessing some sort of pistol round.

Reloads Cause S&W AR-15 Kaboom

2

There sure seems to be a lot of guns going kaboom lately, in the latest known incident NVCapCop on AR15.com experienced what had to have been a very frightening experience when his S&W AR-15 rifle had a catastrophic failure. Fortunately no one was seriously hurt, it was concluded that a bad batch of .223 reloads from USAammo was the culprit (but is it just me or does that rifle look a little too dry? Just saying).

Ammo Made of Cremated Ashes

Here’s a way to go out with a bang. Instead of a boring traditional funeral, how about a 21 gun salute with ammo made out of cremated ashes? Or a hunting trip with a rifle load mixed with your loved ones cremated remains? The guys at Holy Smoke can make it happen. They specialize in loading cremated ashes into live firearm ammunition, everything from shotgun shells to rifle and pistol cartridges. A box of either 250 shotgun shells, 100 rifle cartridges or 250 pistol cartridges goes for $1,250. For an additional $100 they’ll include a “mantle-worthy, finished, wooden handcrafted boxes with labels”.

It’s not a cheap way to remember your loved ones, but I’m sure they would get a bang out of it! Just remember to clean your gun really well afterwards. You don’t want parts of grandpa stuck in your barrel.
