  • Balloon Russian Roulette: What fun!

    Low bleachers covered in red velvet are set in a semi-circle
    facing a small stage. The stage is lit with a single,
    blindingly bright spotlight and is furnished with a table and
    two velvet-covered chairs. Two CONTESTANTS, both of them
    VIETNAMESE, sit opposite one another. Between them, lying on
    the table, is a revolver. Both CONTESTANTS are dressed in
    tuxedos. Both wear red numbers on their… Read More

  • Already bored with your sniper rifle? Howsabout an iPod mount?

    Here’s an iPod mount for your trusty sniper rifle — sure, why the hell not? I mean, the life of a sniper is mostly waiting, right? Might as well catch an episode of The Office or play a quick game of Sim City while you’re waiting for your target to emerge from his super secret meeting inside some fancy hotel. Read More

  • Sega's Wii gun for House of the Dead: Overkill can't be got in America

    House of the Dead: Overkill comes out for the Wii next month, and it promises to be a violent, superfun adventure for all of five minutes. (Kidding!) That said, the experience will benefit from this Sega gun-shell, which is currently penned for release only in Europe and Australia. What, America is too immature to handle fantasy gun violence now?

  • You’ll shoot your eye out ear off, kid

    This hilarious fake prototype of a gun with an old-school Nokia phone built into the handle is what StrategyPage.com calls “The First and Second Amendment Combined.” Read More

  • Gears fans rejoice: someone has mated a real rifle to a real chainsaw

    No nerf Lancer here. No concept gun, no foam rubber. Just an AR-15 with a chainsaw bayonet. I’m not sure what else to put here; more words would only subtract from the sublime beauty of this “firearm mounted anti-zombie device.” Although: I’ve just bought a copy of World War Z and I’m thinking they could have used a few of these things in the first stand at… Read More

  • Interesting reading: Snipers, rifles, and current ballistics research


    The Reg has an uncharacteristically long article up today concerning the history of snipers and their equipment. The tools of the trade have been changing since the first long-range rifles were truly deployed in WWII, and sniping has increased in effectiveness and importance as technology has made weapons more lethal and reduced the size of engagement parties. Counter-Strike and Call of… Read More

  • Fan-made rubber band revolver based on Metal Gear Solid 4

    I feel like I’ve seen something like this before (several times over the years) but this semiautomatic rubber band revolver is definitely slick. With stainless steel construction, a tactical flashlight and laser attachment, and a capacity of 8 (12? there are only 8 notches on the gear) shots, this is truly an office weapon of mass destruction. It’s designed after a gun from Metal… Read More

  • World's biggest, most expensive game of Duck Hunt


    The ST-2 Shooting Simulator from Marksman Training Systems is, I suppose, the most advanced fowl-blasting training environment available. It amounts to a large projection screen and a camera you stick to your gun; the hit detection system is a mystery to me, although I’m fairly sure it doesn’t use the Zapper method. Considering it takes up an entire room, I think this system… Read More

  • Gun-mounted cameras coming soon to DC police?

    Since last fall, police in New York’s Orange County have been using experimental gun-mounted camera technology that begins recording the moment a police officer’s gun is pulled from its holster. The technology was adopted after a public outcry surrounding the 2006 shooting of a Newbugrh, New York man in which, “the street version of the story differs massively from the one… Read More

  • Man killed by gun-toting robot in his own driveway!

    [photopress:starscream_deletedscene1.jpg,full,center] At first the headline grabs your attention, but then you read the story and find out that the man who died built the killer robot specifically to kill himself. I’m sorry, but that is so badass. He was an 81-year old man who’s out of state relatives wanted to put him in a nursing home, because they were selfish bastards. So… Read More
