Taurus USA recently announced their acquisition of the Florida based gun maker Heritage Manufacturing Inc. Heritage specializes in making classic styled single action revolvers with their Rough Rider series being their most popular product line. They also produce single action revolvers chambered in .357 magnum, .45LC and .32 H&R Mag. This isn’t the only cowboy action brand that Taurus owns, Rossi is also under the Taurus umbrella. Rossi is known for their imported lever action rifles and revolvers made in Brazil. Heritage will continue as a standalone company according to Taurus.
In case a chainsaw mounted to an AK-47 wasn’t crazy enough, Patrick Priebe created a pretty sinister looking weapon. He rigged up a saw blade shooting crossbow complete with a laser sight that launches spinning 50mm steel buzz saw blades. It may not be a 7.62×39 round, but I still wouldn’t want to be on the receiving end.
Dry-fire practice is a great way to help improve your handgun accuracy, the folks over at Fourguysguns.com put together this great video tutorial on the ‘wall drill’. It shows how to improve your pistol shooting by using front sight focus drills and trigger control to help build your muscle memory which in turn will help your overall accuracy.
If you ever find yourself needing a case for your iPhone that can withstand a shot from a .50 BMG round, you’ll be glad to know that such a product exist. Made my Marudai in Japan, their case is perhaps the strongest case ever made for the iPhone yet. Made from steel and aluminum it goes for just $650.
UFC President Dana White Tweeted the above picture today, it looks like the coaches on this seasons The Ultimate Fighter get to lob grenades during their coaches challenge. Must be nice.
You know what’s not so nice? Mr. White’s poor trigger discipline. He claims to be a pro gun guy and a gun owner, but he goes and bans gun related sponsors from the UFC and shows the world how not to pose with a firearm. I sure hope it was unloaded too. Stay classy Dana.
Not that we’re aware of, the picture above is from TIME Magazine’s Special Ops issue. It looks like a unknowing (or trolling) graphic designer at TIME used the script from a Glock 22 and slapped it on a grenade. It’s good to know the fact checkers at TIME magazine are hard at work.
