WTF, really? How about every man (and woman) having the right to hold guns and hands with whoever they want?
Here’s something that looks like it’s straight out of Son’s of Guns. But it’s not from Red Jacket, the folks over at Advanced Armament Corp. put together this silenced Marlin 1894C lever-action rifle. The barrel was threaded and a Ti-Rant 9mm suppressor was added and .38 special cartridges were used.

Ever wonder what you can do with all those used shotgun shells? Well Instructables has a few cool uses for old shotgun shells and a USB flash drive you might have laying around.
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.
The Kel-Tec KSG shotgun had a lot of buzz around it the past few months, and with almost any hot new product, scammers do their best to swindle unsuspecting buyers. Kel-Tec gave a few updates on the status of the production of their KSG shotgun, one of which was a heads up to buyers that any Kel-Tec KSG shotguns listed on GunBroker.com or any other source online are hoaxes. Currently Kel-Tec has only sent a few KSG shotguns to people to be tested and evaluated and are not available for retail sale. The KSG should be available to the public by the end of the year.

This comes as a bit of a surprise, the Swiss Army recently announced that the Swiss Special Forces will not be issued the SIG SAUER P220 or SIG Pro pistols anymore. Three indendent elements from the Swiss Army conducted an evaluation process and came to the conclusion that their SIG’s just weren’t living up to their expectations. They have since decided to go with Austrian-made Glock 17 Gen 4 and Glock 26 pistols. They choose the Glock because of “reliability and durability”.
Not taking away anything from Glock or their renowned history of being one of the most reliable pistol designs of all time. But I have a funny feeling that costs played a major role in the Swiss Army’s decision.
