eBay – Aliens Original Hero Colonial Marine M41-A Pulse Rifle

June 23rd, 2017

This coming Wednesday, June 28th, profilesinhistoryauctions, an eBay seller which is offering a plethora of sci-fi movie props and costumes, will be auctioning off an original M41-A Pulse Rifle prop, built for the movie ‘Aliens’ and later rebuilt for ‘Aliens 3’.

The estimated winning bid is expected to be anywhere from 12k to 15k. If one were inclined, they could build a live fire replica for less than that price; the M41-As were built using Thompson M1A1s and Remington 870s, with a few other odds and ends. But, this is a chance to own a piece of movie history.

Weapon 7.62 – TMC M72 LAW Pillow

June 22nd, 2017

It's like a dakimakura, but for anti-tank weapon fetishists

This is an M27 LAW anti-tank launcher replica, made into a pillow. It doesn’t have any function, aside from that already offered by a soft pillow. Its design does allow it to be used for MilSim, if warranted.

Miculek Earns Multiple First Place Finishes at IPSC Rifle World Shoot in Russia

Newington, N.H. (June 21, 2017) – SIG SAUER, Inc. announces that Team SIG member Lena Miculek recently earned multiple top finishes during the first ever International Practical Shooting Confederation (IPSC) Rifle World Shoot. Held at Moscow’s Patriot Park in Kubinka, the Rifle World Shoot consisted of 591 competitors from 40 nations who competed in 30 stages over the course of a week. It is the highest-level rifle match within IPSC.

“For the action shooting sports community, this is our Olympics,” said Lena Miculek. “I was lucky to make the Ladies Open Team alongside Ashley Rheuark, Maggie Reese and my mother Kay Miculek. Through crazy weather and intense competition, the Ladies Open Team came out on top!”

In addition to the team victory, Miculek battled through illness to claim multiple individual titles, including the Ladies Open shootoff and 1st place in the Ladies Open division. Using a SIGM400 Predator and SIG Elite Performance ammo, she also reached her goal of placing in the top 20 overall in the world, beating out many of the world’s finest competitors, including her father, shooting legend Jerry Miculek. After a week of competition, the Louisiana native returned home with a pair of 1st place trophies and five gold medals.

“It was an incredible experience to represent the United States at the IPSC Rifle World Shoot,” said Miculek. “Competing against the world’s finest shooters was very humbling. Standing on the podium and hearing our National Anthem play was an experience beyond words.”

    Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus Reveal Trailer

    June 11th, 2017

    After a largely disappointing E3 conference, Bethesda closed out the event by saving the best for last: this trailer for Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. BJ Blazkowicz is back, ripping his way through a Nazi-controlled United States with a cast of colorful characters, excessive violence, and alternate weapon dual wielding!

    If there’s one thing that Bethesda has gotten right as of late, it’s not revealing games until they’re almost ready to ship, and this game is no exception.

    Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is slated for release October 27, 2017.

    Today Is The 73rd Anniversary Of D-Day

    June 6th, 2017

    73 years ago today marks D-Day, the Allied invasion of Normandy. General Dwight D. Eisenhower’s address to the Allied Expeditionary Force who committed the operation can be read below:

    Soldiers, Sailors, and Airmen of the Allied Expeditionary Force:

    You are about to embark upon the Great Crusade, toward which we have striven these many months.

    The eyes of the world are upon you. The hopes and prayers of liberty-loving people everywhere march with you.

    In company with our brave Allies and brothers-in-arms on other Fronts you will bring about the destruction of the German war machine, the elimination of Nazi tyranny over oppressed peoples of Europe, and security for ourselves in a free world.

    Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well trained, well equipped, and battle-hardened. He will fight savagely.

    But this is the year 1944. Much has happened since the Nazi triumphs of 1940-41. The United Nations have inflicted upon the Germans great defeats, in open battle, man-to-man. Our air offensive has seriously reduced their strength in the air and their capacity to wage war on the ground. Our Home Fronts have given us an overwhelming superiority in weapons and munitions of war, and placed at our disposal great reserves of trained fighting men. The tide has turned. The free men of the world are marching together to victory.

    I have full confidence in your courage, devotion to duty, and skill in battle. We will accept nothing less than full victory.

    Good Luck! And let us all beseech the blessing of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking.

    – General Dwight D. Eisenhower, Supreme Commander of the Allied Expeditionary Forces

    Introducing Violent Little Greeting Cards

    June 3rd, 2017

    Somewhere in the mountains of Ketchum, Idaho, Violent Little Machine Shop is kind of pleased to announce their new business line: Violent Little Greeting Cards, which will be geared towards the military, tactical, and general scallywag communities. Finally, there are cards for the relationships you always wanted but could just never muster up the courage to develop on your own. We’ll help you get there…

    The initial line consists of 13 painstakingly-designed cards to suit a variety of scenarios. All are printed in the United States of America on tastefully thick 14 pt. premium paper that just wants to caress the ink into a masterpiece of bullshit. Newly dubbed CEO, Oscar Sanchez, was excited about the new line: “I’m really not too sure about this new card thing. Honestly, it’s been kind of tough to get on board with the “vision”, but I’ve also got a boss… so it’s not like I’ve got a choice in the matter. I’ll push what he tells me to push.” He added, “I guess my head’s on the chopping block… I feel like I’m kind of in a “no win” situation, but oh well. I’ll start polishing up my resume. Anybody know if Black Rifle Coffee is hiring? I hear Stratton Oakmont has some good benefits.”

    Violent Little Greeting Cards are the perfect way to tell your best friend to “fuck off”, make Mom feel kind of special on her special day, or just as a general “hello” to that fake friend you haven’t talked to since High School graduation that wrote “Seniors are the Best” in your yearbook and then you bumped into him at the Chik-fil-A he was assistant-managing and you felt guilty because you’re now a big time boss-hawg.

    To order, go to violentlittle.com. Notes of “well wishes” can be sent to info@violentlittle.com.
