RE Factor Tactical – Hand Grenade Dog Toy

Saturday, March 21st, 2015

Hand Grenade Dog Toy

RE Factor has come up with a heavier duty solution for doggie play time. The Hand Grenade Dog Toy is hand sewn from 1000D Cordura and nylon webbing. It features an integrated squeeker, which all dogs love. Although it is made from a durable material, RE Factor states it’s an interactive toy for both dog and owner, and isn’t designed for the sole purpose of chewing. For additional fun, you can pair it with the Pig Sticker Dog Toy, which if you haven’t guessed, is a knife-shaped dog toy.

Made in the USA.


Sexually Identifying As An Attack Helicopter

I debated with myself on whether I should even share this. Ultimately, I determined it’s too damn funny not to share it.

This photo of a highly motivated Peshmerga fighter and his rather interesting rifle recently hit https://www.reddit.com/r/guns/comments/2ve0p1/peshmerga_fighter_holding_what_can_only_be/. The piece de la resistance (pun intended) is definitely the M16 charging handle.

SKD Tactical – Zombie Condoms

Monday, January 5th, 2015

Zombie Condom

SKD Tactical is offering their own FDA approved Zombie Green latex condoms. While I’m sure they’re perfectly fine for general use, SKD notes they can also be used, for… well, just read the description on the packaging:

Printed Instructions: For Post-ZPoc use. Scientifically engineered for Undead Coitus without infection. Do not use for Undead Oral as getting bitten by or biting the Undead will turn you.

ThinkGeek – Tactical Holiday Stocking

Thursday, November 20th, 2014


Leave it to ThinkGeek to come up with something like a ‘Tactical Stocking’. Made from “Heavy Duty Nylon”, the all-black tactical stocking features PALS webbing, carabiners, quick-release buckles, a top handle, a Velcro panel, bi-directional side zipper, and a small, external pouch.

If it were in some kind of Christmas-themed camo, and they lost everything but the PALS webbing, external pouch, and the Velcro panel, I might actually want one.

Musical Targets are targets made out of AR-500 steel, manufactured so they sound like musical notes. According to the manufacturer, for the best results .22 LR should be used.

Apocalypse Pooh is a merging of Winnie the Pooh and Apocalypse Now, created by Todd Graham. It casts Pooh and his various friends as characters from Apocalypse Now, radically changing the context of the original animation.

Red Bull Class Action Settlement

Tuesday, October 7th, 2014

If you have purchased a Red Bull energy drink product in the United States between January 1st, 2002, and October 3rd, 2014, then you likely qualify as part of two class action lawsuits currently being held against Red Bull.

As part of the ongoing settlement, a qualified consumer may claim either:

1) a $10 check

2) $15 worth of Red Bull products shipped to your chosen address at Red Bull’s expense

No proof of purchase is necessary if you decide to submit a claim form, however it must be signed under penalty of perjury, so in the most extreme of scenarios it might not hurt to have an old receipt laying around.

For more information, and to fill out and submit a claim form, visit energydrinksettlement.com/index.

The Tacticool C96

Tuesday, September 16th, 2014


This is a picture of a Mauser C96 that’s been spreading around the internet, however instead of the classic design that served as the basis for Han Solo’s blaster, it’s been bubba’d up to a near unrecognizable state. Now, this could very simply be an airsoft replica gone wrong (or right, if it’s your thing). Unfortunately, the image is too low resolution to read any of the markings on the parts kit, which would be a dead giveaway. However, the image does feature a URL which leads to this page on the Chinese social media site Sina Weibo:


Unfortunately, I’m not a Chinese citizen, which is required to get a Weibo membership, so I can’t access the profile beyond the initial public page. Additionally, the creator of this kit hasn’t come forward, so at the moment, I can’t determine if this is a real steel monstrosity, or just an airsoft one.

Maybe The Army Should Take A Look At MultiDoge

Just in case that whole Scorpion thing with printers blows up in their face, I suggest PEO Soldier take a hard look at MultiDoge as a backup plan.

Danger 5 – Second Season To Start Soon

Thursday, August 28th, 2014

A while back we featured an article on the Australian series Danger 5:

From David Russo and David Ashby, the creators of Italian Spiderman, comes the ultimate 60′s era-style spy show you never knew you wanted, but know you have to see. Set in an alternate WWII, 5 Allied spies: Jackson from the USA, Tucker from Australia, Lisa from Russia, Claire from Britain, and Pierre from Europe, battle Hitler and the Third Reich’s evil schemes world wide, facing such foes as lizard men and Japanese robots.

Great synopsis, huh? You know you have to see the second season, which reportedly will begin airing next month.

This video combines two of my favorite entertainment forces, Batman and Dethklok, into a fusion of metal and vigilantism. Fair warning, it’s a bit weird.

Kryptek Is Now Doing The Dew

Monday, July 14th, 2014


I was ‘out and about’ last night, and I happened to spot these ‘Limited Edition Kryptek Military Heroes Pack’ boxes of Mountain Dew. Reportedly, only the boxes get the camo, not the cans. You can pick these up anywhere they sell Mountain Dew.


The Cash Cannon

Saturday, July 12th, 2014


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”.


Manta – Beer Cozy

Friday, July 11th, 2014


It’s not about keeping it cold, it’s about keeping it cool.

- Bob Bullion

They’ll come in a variety of colors, including glow-in-the-dark and ‘temperature-based color change’ variants. Stay tuned for more info as it becomes available.
