Tennessee Arms Company – The Ghost Gun Clear Stripped Lower Receiver

July 24th, 2014

ghost1__29770.1406213173.1280.1280

Tennessee Arms Company is offering what they call the “Ghost Gun”, a clear stripped AR-15 lower receiver. Made from UV stabilized Nylon that is highly resistant to oils and lubricants, the Ghost Gun is a fully functional lower, although tnarmsco notes it is intended more as a teaching tool and for product showcase than for hard use. If anything else, it’ll definitely make for a great conversation starter at the range. Pair it with a transparent magazine or two for double the fun.

12 Monkey’s Remake

July 21st, 2014

The S[ci]F[i] Network (changing their name to SyFy was and still is dumb) has decided to do a remake of Terry Gilliam’s 12 Monkeys. For those of you who haven’t seen it, 12 Monkeys was a trippy science fiction movie starting Bruce Willis as a man who is sent into the past to try and obtain a sample of a virus that virtually wiped out mankind in his time, so that a cure could be developed. Just looking at the trailer it looks like a way different beast, seemingly sharing only a name and a basic concept. We’ll have to wait until January 2015 to see how it stands up compared to the original.

The Cash Cannon

July 12th, 2014

TheCashCannon_529406be20ac7

Since I feel obligated to post any gun shaped projectile devices I can possibly find, I figured the Cash Cannon fulfills said obligation. Made from ABS plastic, the Cash Cannon can be loaded with US Dollar bills or any item similar in size and structure, and with a pull of a trigger shoots them out rapidly. If anything else, it’s a novel way to “make it rain”.
