Libyan rebels seized Gaddafi’s compound in Tripoli today and as expected they ransacked it for anything of value. One lucky rebel fighter scored an awesome find, a gold plated Al Kadesih rifle. The Al Kadesih is an Iraqi made clone of the SVD Dragunov sniper rifle. Lucky guy!


Don’t mind the reporters remark about it being an AK, it’s the media after all.

Check out MMA legend and UFC fighter BJ Penn shooting a Smith & Wesson .500 revolver at fellow UFC alum Matt Hughes’ farm in the video below. It looks like it was BJ’s first time shooting, but I don’t blame him, the .500 S&W is no joke to shoot. It’s cool to see BJ Penn and Matt Hughes hanging out shooting guns, the two were bitter rivals having fought each other three times in the Octagon during their careers. It just shows that the shooting sports can bring even old arch enemies together.

Now here’s a good way to light up a room. These hand made slip-cast ceramic lamps are 33″s tall and have a semi-matte glaze to showoff the detail of the lamp modeled after the famous AK-47 rifle.
