Marvel’s The Punisher – Netflix Trailer 1

September 23rd, 2017

I kinda fell off keeping up with the Netflix arm of the Marvel Cinematic Universe; I haven’t seen Jessica Jones or The Defenders, and I dropped out of Iron Fist 3 episodes in. However, I definitely won’t be missing The Punisher series when it launches, sometime later this year. He was easily the highlight of Daredevil season 2, and

HatsanUSA Unveils The Riptor

September 20th, 2017

HatsanUSA has announced the Riptor – a new C02-powered, semi-automatic BB pistol. The Riptor is the ultimate fun-gun for shooting cans or targets in the backyard. With its realistic blowback action, this is one plinker that you’ll want to take with you wherever you go. It’s also a great option for teaching pistol fundamentals to first-time shooters.

“Hatsan fans have been asking for us to bring a realistic blowback CO2 BB pistol to the US market and with the Riptor, we feel like we’ve answered the call with an inexpensive and fun-to-shoot BB pistol. The fact that it is also quite accurate and extremely quiet will add to the appeal,” said Blaine Manifold, President of HatsanUSA.

The Riptor is powered by replaceable 12 gram CO2 air cylinders and fires .177 caliber BBs. Average velocities are 350 feet per second using steel BBs. The Riptor’s removable magazine holds 15 BBs, the CO2 cartridge and valve.

The Riptor’s integral QuietEnergy sound suppression system reduces downrange noise, making it a perfect choice for backyard plinking. An all-metal construction ensures durability of the pistol and a built-in Weaver accessory rail make it possible to attach lights, lasers and other accessories. The grip is covered in textured polymer to ensure a comfortable grip for almost any hand size.

The MSRP for the Riptor is $89.99.

SilencerCo Releases First-Ever 50-State-Legal Suppressed Muzzleloader

September 19th, 2017

IMG_1004

WEST VALLEY CITY, UT – September 19, 2017 – For the first time since the National Firearms Act (NFA) was created in 1934, civilians can enjoy suppressed shooting in all 50 states with SilencerCo’s latest innovation: the integrally suppressed Maxim 50 muzzleloader. In addition, this product can be purchased right now on the web with no regulation (no 4473, no tax stamp, no photographs or fingerprints) at store.silencerco.com and be shipped immediately to the purchaser with few exceptions*.

IMG_1006

Residents in the 42 states that allow civilian ownership of silencers have to pay a $200 tax, fill out forms, send in photos, submit to fingerprinting, and wait months for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (BATFE) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to review their forms and check their backgrounds—just to acquire an inherently-harmless product. With all the hoops to jump through, it’s no surprise that many Americans have difficulty committing the time or money it takes to save their hearing. Citizens may have had their Second Amendment rights suppressed, but innovation cannot be silenced.

IMG_1005

With the invention of the Maxim 50, SilencerCo has created a product that is 100% legal for civilian ownership in all 50 states while providing hearing-saving suppression at a reasonable price point. How is this possible? By paying very close attention to the law.

IMG_1007

The BATFE defines a silencer as a “device for silencing, muffling, or diminishing the report of a portable firearm . . .” By that definition, a silencer is only a silencer if it can attach to a firearm. The Maxim 50 is built on the base of a Traditions™ Vortek Strikerfire Muzzleloader. For those who know muzzleloaders, you’ll also know that they are not considered firearms by the BATFE but are instead antique firearms, a definition and difference that is very distinct. Because of this, a moderator that is permanently affixed to a muzzleloader is not legally defined as a silencer, since it does not attach to a firearm. With this realization, the Maxim 50 was born.

IMG_1003

“It took a lot of creativity to arrive at this solution,” said Josh Waldron, SilencerCo CEO and Co-Founder. “We have been working on this product for three years, with most of that time spent waiting on a determination from the Technology Branch of the BATFE as to how this product would be classified. As soon as we received official word that it wouldn’t be considered or regulated as a silencer, we got to work on bringing the Maxim 50 to customers across the country.”

SilencerCo expects the Maxim 50 to be a hit not only with the NFA-loving crowd, but also with hobbyists and hunters. In many states, muzzleloader hunting begins days (sometimes weeks) before standard rifle season, giving hunters using this platform an edge. But this edge does come with caveats – antique firearms are usually loud, have lots of recoil, and the shooter has to battle the thick cloud of black powder smoke billowing from the barrel as they try to see if their shot connected with their game. The Maxim 50 solves all of the issues experienced by muzzleloader shooters while also drastically reducing the resulting smoke by more than two-thirds, allowing hunters to see the location of their shot and track their game.

SilencerCo is honored to finally be able to bring suppressed shooting to its customers across the country, especially in states such as California, Illinois, and New York, where civilian ownership of silencers is not currently allowed.

WORLD LEADER IN MILITARY AND DEFENSE ENDORSES DUKE ROBOTICS’ TIKAD DRONE AS FUTURE BATTLEFIELD TECHNOLOGY

September 14th, 2017

Company’s technology presented as state-of-the-art
Military advancement by Israel’s Ministry of Defense

Gulf Breeze, FL, September 14, 2017 — Duke Robotics, Inc, a developer of advanced robotic systems, announced that Israel’s Ministry of Defense has endorsed Duke Robotics’ TIKAD drone as innovative future battlefield technology.

The Administration for the Development of Weapons (ADW) at Israel’s Ministry of Defense, which has similar tasks to those of DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) at the U.S. Department of Defense, recently unveiled a number of state-of-the-art military developments, which they called “Weapons of the Future,” set to be implemented into Israel Defense Forces service on land, sea, and air, including Duke Robotics’ TIKAD, featured prominently in this Israeli Defense Ministry video: (https://youtu.be/cqMbsQbJL3o)

“We are pleased with the endorsement of the Israeli ADW (Administration for the Development of Weapons at the Ministry of Defense) for our technology and its capability in providing a real solution in saving lives and changing the course of the modern battlefield,” said Raziel Atuar, Duke Robotics CEO, former Israeli Special Mission Unit commander.

With the mission to save lives and to empower troops with immediate aerial support, Duke Robotics designed the TIKAD — a fully robotic weaponry system on an airborne platform, which they refer to as The Future Soldier. The company announced in August that it’s offering up to $15 Million of common stock qualified by the SEC under Tier II of Regulation A+. Now, anyone, not just wealthy investors, can purchase stock and own a part of this award-winning company. See DukeFutureSoldier.com.

As the classic army versus army confrontation on the battlefield has become increasingly rare, guerrilla warfare is now more commonplace. Developed by former Israeli military and Special Mission Unit officers to address warfare’s changing landscape, the TIKAD is remotely operated by troops, user-friendly and easily carried into the field. The company’s proprietary robotic stabilization technology enables the TIKAD to absorb the recoil of a weapon, allowing for pinpoint targeting and shooting accuracy that can protect troops in a variety of dangerous situations. By reducing the need for ground troops, the TIKAD represents a major step towards minimizing military and civilian casualties and the technology is gaining support on a global basis.

David Harbour’s Hellboy Revealed

September 13th, 2017

For those who aren’t in the know, the original Guillermo Del Toro Hellboy movie series, staring Ron Pearlman as the titular hero, was cancelled, with the third movie put on the kibosh after a period in development hell. News of a hard-R Hellboy reboot almost immediately followed the news of the cancellation, with David Harbour stated to star.

David Harbour, best known for his role as Jim Hopper in the Netflix series ‘Stranger Things’, seemed like an odd choice to many, largely because many felt he didn’t really look the part. Plus, with Ron Pearlman’s badass baritone voice and already comic-accurate appearance, seeing the role played by anyone else seemed inconceivable. However, with this reveal of Mr. Harbour in full Hellboy garb, the response has been largely positive. He also looks a lot like Pearlman did in his Hellboy outfit, which is a huge plus.

In case you’re wondering, David didn’t undergo any sort of ultra-intense ‘action hero’ workout and ‘supplement’ regimen to fit the role. It’s at least 90% prosthetics. In fact, he pretty much looks like he does in the image below underneath the costume:

Bullets2Bandages – Six Shooter Shot Glass

September 12th, 2017

A few years back, Bullets2Bandages, a San Diego-based Veteran-owned small business, hosted a campaign for Six Shooter Shot Glasses, modeled after the cylinder from a Colt revolver. It seems they were successful, because they’re currently selling the item on their Etsy page. The glasses are machined from aircraft-grade aluminum, and comply with U.S. 21 CFR F.D.A. Reg Part 175.300 clause C1/C2/C3/C4, meaning according to the Government they’re safe to drink from. Additionally, they can be custom laser-engraved, for an extra touch of personalization.

Bullets2Bandages is a Veteran-owned small business located in San Diego, CA, founded in 2011 by two former Navy Explosive Ordnance Disposal divers. They produce accessories and apparel that aim to honor those who have served the USA. B2B hires veterans, manufactures locally, and donates 15% of profits to veteran charities.

September 10th, 2017

The Exogorth, AKA that space slug the Millennium Falcon flies out of in Empire Strikes Back, is now immortalized in Snow Globe form thanks to ThinkGeek and their licensing of the Star Wars brand. If your suspension of disbelief ends at how this particlar scene makes for a good snow globe, the product specification states it could be hundreds of Mynocks (the bat creatures that latch onto the ship in the same scene), so we’ll go with that.

    PPSS Group’s New Emergency Body Armour Will Help Protect Civilians

    September 8th, 2017

    Designed for individual protection, a new rapidly deployable ‘Emergency Body Armour™’ is offering the latest in globally respected and field-tested body armour technology, displaying truly outstanding protection from edged weapon, such as machetes and knives.

    Following a number of well documented knife attacks on civilians in recent years, PPSS Group started a comprehensive R&D project with the aim to design a ultra-lightweight body armour that can be strategically located in public places and deployed within a very few seconds, in case of emergency.

    The UK firm is now making this new ‘Emergency Body Armour’ available to airports, train stations, hospitals, city centre hotels, and other key locations civilians may flee to and seek shelter when faced by a suddenly occurring threat.

    According to the company behind this concept, this latest ‘Emergency Body Armour’ also offers unmatched protection from blunt force trauma injuries, usually suffered following an assault by a blunt object.

    A top healthcare security specialist in Britain wished to remain anonymous, but commented: “To have something small, compact and lightweight stashed away or strategically placed that you could pull out and throw on, would make a huge difference between a potential life and death situation.”

    Robert Kaiser, CEO of PPSS Group strongly agrees with this statement. Presenting at yesterday’s global product launch at London’s Hilton Canary Wharf Hotel he said: “An Emergency Body Armour makes sense, and it will help to protect human lives and reduce the number of casualties when a serious threat occurs.”

    A live video demo of this new armour can be viewed on YouTube by searching for ‘PPSS Emergency Body Armour’ or please click on the following link: https://youtu.be/D54P9cjDIt8
    Following the issuing of body armour to all Police Forces in the UK in the 90s, many hospital and university security teams have now equipped their teams with stab resistant vests since. The same can be said for several public sector enforcement teams, such as Trading Standards, Licensing, Community Safety, Environmental Health and Car Parking Enforcement.

    About PPSS Group:

    PPSS Group is specialised in the development, manufacturing and supply of high performance body armour, offering unrivalled protection from firearms, edged weapons and blunt force trauma. PPSS Group’s social media presence: Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Google+ and Instagram.

    Onnit – Star Wars Fitness Equipment

    September 6th, 2017

    The Star Wars license can be found all over the place, from the expected – toys, games, clothing, collectables, to the weird – instruments, cookbooks, and even a sick bag. This line of fitness equipment from Onnit edges more towards the weird side, not so much because it’s fitness equipment with Star Wars licensing, but because it consists of items including a Death Star slam ball and a Boba Fett kettlebell. After all, there’s no better way to get in shape than cleaning a galactic bounty hunter’s head, or doing yoga on Han Solo’s carbonited body.

    Violent Little Machine Shop – “Welcome To The Friendzone” Greeting Card

    September 3rd, 2017

    Violent Little Machine Shop is known for their wide variety of morale patches, and related materials, so making a greeting card welcoming people to the friendzone a bit counter-intuitive; that could be considered… anti-morale, don’t you think? Regardless, it’s tongue-in-cheek like almost everything else VLMS, so get one for a friend or family member who just can’t spit out an anguished declaration of love, or maybe even an unwanted admirer. Really drop the hint on ’em.
