The AK-47 is a rugged and reliable platform, but it’s not known as a tack driver of a rifle. Krebs Custom is putting that stereotype to the test with their prototype 6.5mm Grendel rifle based off the AK platform. Their new rifle seems deadly accurate shooting sub-MOA groups with Wolf ammo.
The FNP and FNX series of pistols from FNH have become quite popular in the United States for its high quality and affordable price. Downrange.tv reported that FNH will add another pistol to their lineup in the United States with their new FNS-9 Striker fire pistols. Aimed at the US law enforcement market as well as consumer, the FNS-9 will debut sometime in 2012 and will feature multiple internal safeties, interchangable backstraps, amdixtrous controls and checkered grips. I’m a fan of the FN pistols with a hammer, and other pistols with a hammer like the 1911 and various Sigs, but striker fired pistol are very popular among law enforcement and consumers alike making the FNS-9 a logical step for FNH. If the new FNS-9 is as great as their FNP and FNX pistols they’re sure to find a niche here in the US.
I wouldn’t want to be on the receiving end of that exchange of lead.

First person shooter games like Call of Duty has allowed you to customize your guns for quite some time now, but it was usually just add-on accessories like red dots and grenade launchers.

Some gun owners keep their gun manuals stored and organized so they always know where to find them, and some probably have never even looked at their gun owners manual (I’m guilty of this sometimes). If you’ve lost your owners manual, of if you bought your gun used and it didn’t come with one, this collection of gun manuals probably has just what you’re looking for. Its collection of gun manuals is quite vast, it has manuals from obscure gun models all the way to the CMP M1 Garand.

Someone needs to tell these guys a thing or two about trigger discipline, or else this really could have been a case of friendly fire. Seeing as there’s a bottle of booze (probably a native made rum) I’m assuming they thought taking this picture was a good idea at the time. All kidding aside, the above photograph was taken between 1899 and 1900 during the Philippine-American war and is from the Manila Branch Studio of Japanese photographer T. Enami.
Everyone knows zombies are a real threat to our society, just ask the CDC, and when the living dead rise up you don’t want to be caught unprepared. You’ve stockpiled the ammo, debated on the forums endlessly about whether an AK-47 or AR-15 is the optimal zombie slaughtered gun and you’ve even read the Zombie Survival Guide. But how will you fair when the zombies are actually pounding on your door? Are you going to be prepared for the virus infected blood and gore your .223 ammo will spill on your porch? (or will you be using 7.62×39? That’s a debate for another day)
