SIG Sauer – Chocolate MPX

Sunday, December 3rd, 2017

As part of their ongoing Six Days Of SIG deal, SIG Sauer revealed a solid chocolate replica of the SIG MPX for sale on their webstore. To be specific, it’s 2 lbs. of milk chocolate, and SIG assures it’s 50 states legal, so if you’re in a restricted state, have at it.

Panacea X – The ‘Zombie X’ Chainsaw Bayonet

Thursday, November 9th, 2017

USA Today showed their ass again, this time with an infographic-style animation of the “Texas Church Gunman’s AR-15 Style Rifle”. Starting off with a “What we know about the Ruger AR-556”, as if they’re performing a revealing expose on previously unknown information (including music that sounds like the mission planning BGM of a Tom Clancy video game), they go over the basic features of the rifle, including its telescoping stock, standard-capacity magazine, and iron sights. It’s when they get into the list of aftermarket modifications, however, that the hilarity really starts to show:

Yup, a ‘Chainsaw bayonet’. Now, to their credit, they did say some of these accessories are “rare” (like that masterkey they also showed), but this? C’mon, could they be any more baity if they tried?*

Granted, the thing does exist: a company called Panacea X makes them, and to my discredit, there was one floating around SHOT Show, and I totally missed it while walking around. Anyway, dubbed the ‘Zombie X Chainsaw’, it’s a Picatinny-mountable chainsaw available in multiple color configurations. Each Zombie X is lovingly crafted right here in the USA, and features an aluminum grip, chassis, and rail mount, and can function as a standalone chainsaw when not mounted to a scary black rifle. Plus, it comes with the following accessories and goodies: battery, charger, t-shirt, bumper sticker, and free CONUS shipping.

*Of course, that’s really the goal, and I’m one of many, many people and outlets writing about it, so, mission accomplished!

Onnit – Star Wars Fitness Equipment

Wednesday, 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.

SSD – This Is Real

Sunday, August 6th, 2017

It is located outside of the Harlow Police Station in Essex. The photo wasn't taken by a concerned party, aghast by the shear existence of such a device, but rather was posted to Facebook by the Essex Police, who are quite proud.

Giaco Whatever – 4000 PSI BB Gun VS Coca Cola Experiment

Monday, July 3rd, 2017

YouTube channel Giaco Whatever took a homemade, multi-barrel BB gun featured in a previous video, and upped the PSI from 130 to 4000, in addition to loading the gun with metal BBs. The end result is something that is understandably quite destructive.

Don’t try this at home, seriously.

Weapon 7.62 – TMC M72 LAW Pillow

Thursday, 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.

Thomas The RC Hexapod

Sunday, March 12th, 2017

I was on Reddit earlier today, and happened upon this .gif of a RC Hexapod modified with a Thomas the Tank Engine turret, complete with a working flamethrower. To be blunt, I found it hilarious, and thankfully the source was provided in the thread, which can be seen above.

It’s a product of YouTube channel PeterSripol, who modified the original Hexapod into the monstrosity it now is.

ThinkGeek – Star Wars Millennium Falcon Multi-Tool Kit

Saturday, December 17th, 2016

jhil_sw_mill_falcon_multi-tool_kit

I like multitools. I like Star Wars. Still, this feels like a line that just didn’t need to be crossed; two things that honestly had no logic to be combined. I’m talking about ThinkGeek’s officially-licensed Millennium Falcon Multi-Tool kit. Shaped like everyone’s favorite smuggler’s ship, this particular multitool comes complete with four hex keys, two screwdrivers, and an adjustable wrench.

If they’ll make the Millennium Falcon into a multitool, when’s ‘Star Wars’ the flamethrower?

A3 Tactical – Double Picatinny Clamp

Thursday, December 15th, 2016

image1

This little device is A3 Tactical’s Double Picatinny Clamp. As the name implies, the Double Picatinny Clamp is designed to mount one Picatinny rail to another, providing, as A3 states, “virtually limitless possibilities… only limited by your imagination” in regards to accessories, guns, and gear featuring Picatinny-spec rails, at least. It’s CNC machined from 6061 aluminum, and its design prevents fore/aft movement of the rails, as well as preventing marring of your rails thanks to dowels that are machined slightly taller than the industry-standard Picatinny groove.

Of course, A3’s Double Picatinny Clamp does also give you the option to attach entire firearms to one another, creating combinations such as this:

Cards Against Humanity – The Holiday Hole

Friday, November 25th, 2016

pasted-image-at-2016_11_25-02_16-pm

Every year around the holidays, the Cards Against Humanity team comes up with a new gimmick. Last year, for Black Friday, they sold literally nothing… for $5 a pop. Unabashed capitalism at its finest.

This year, they’re digging a hole. And that’s pretty much it.

The reason we brought this up is because our friends at Tacticalgear.com donated a $1001 towards this funny but ultimately pointless endeavor. In fact, here’s the email they received after their donation:

TAC-SAC – Get Your Balls Back America

Sunday, October 23rd, 2016

There’s not a lot that needs to be said about the TAC-AC. Rather, it’s something that you get, once youve seen. Unfortunately, in this day and age, the TAC-SAC may be offensive to some, so I’ll suggest you not go to the jump unless you’re sure your career won’t be in jeopardy. (more…)

Chuck Norris Launches Bottled Water Brand Called CFORCE

Monday, October 10th, 2016

This is a cross-post from sister site Soldier Systems Daily. It’s too apropos for the usual coverage on this site not to share here.

Billed as a ‘Force of Nature’, new CFORCE from Chuck Norris is bottled right on his Lone Wolf Ranch in Navasota, TX. As you can imagine, if Chuck Norris is involved it’s not going to come from some boring tap in a factory. On no; according to the webiste, ‘doesn’t flow from the ground; it bursts from an artesian spring with the same unharnessed power and intensity you’d expect from Chuck Norris’ roundhouse kick.’ Pretty awesome.

Please note, a portion of CFORCE sales benefit environmental initiatives and KICKSTART KIDS—a charity that empowers at-risk youth. The Norris family has supported these causes for more than 25 years.

Thanks for the heads up Nate! Stay safe out there!

Tactical Outfitters – Dickbutt Air Freshener 

Saturday, August 27th, 2016

  

If you’re not familiar with Dickbutt, it’s an internet meme; ’nuff said about that (Google it if you’re interested). Given the name, and the potential smells associated with said name, any wariness about the odor of an air freshner such as this one is fully understood, but it smells fine, honest! Just a generic, ‘fresh’-smelling air freshner… that looks like Dickbutt.

Cabot Guns – Meteorite Pistols

Wednesday, June 8th, 2016

42

Cabot Guns’ Big Bang Pistol Set, also known as the Meteorite Pistols (insert some play on words about ‘Space-Age Materials’) are a unique set of two 1911s. They were made from an iron-nickel alloy obtained from a meteorite that crashed into what is now Gibeon, Namibia, billions of years ago. Reportedly, the pistols are valued at approximately $5 million, although it remains to be seen wether anyone is willing to pay that much for them.

You can find out more about the pistols at cabotgun.com
