2nd place is bittersweet, when the majority of your opponents were 10 year olds.

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.
Its a ceramic coffee mug shaped like a grenade. Available in a variety of colors, including ‘Avocado’ which is the closest it seems to get to the Mk2 grenade this is seemingly inspired by.
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.

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.
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.
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, the company behind the weapon covers utilized by the US Marine Corps for the M27 IAR, will soon be releasing a beer cozy made from their proprietary polymer in a similar style to their suppressor cover. 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.
Gost Barefoot is a German company that makes what can be described as chainmail minimalist shoes. The PaleoBarefoot series is made from stainless steel chainmail. The shoes are built for strolling, light hiking, and walking on natural surfaces and in water. For more ‘urban’ environments, they also sell “Multi-Paws”, attachable soft sole spots based on animal paws that provide grip on smooth and paved surfaces.
The Laser-Guided Tactical Necktie now ranks among various April Fool’s Day jokes that progressed to an actual product available for purchase due to popular demand. Made from durable nylon, this tactical necktie features a Class II laser pointer, PALS webbing, and a removable storage pouch. It makes the perfect accessory for any Tactical Tuxedo.
The mag flip is what all true operators strive for.
This footage is (thankfully) all that remains of ‘Snake Plissken’s Escape’, a video game that was to be published by Namco and released back in 2005. Developed by the remaining ‘Dead to Rights 2′ staff, the game would have featured a storyline approved by Carpenter, Russell, and Hill and a full body scan of Russell for the titular character. The developer’s influence is obvious when compared to their previous work, ‘Dead to Rights 2′: acrobatic gunplay with dual wielding and slow motion, which frankly seems a bit beyond Snake’s demonstrated capabilities.

Admittedly, this isn’t my first time covering OWCC’s Bullet Chess offerings, although they’ve greatly expanded their product line since I last wrote about them. New offerings include mini chess sets, shotshell checkers, and even .50 caliber backgammon. My personal favorite has to be the NATO vs SOVIET (Warsaw Pact) set above, which features demilled cartridges largely utilized by the two military alliances as the pieces.
Deep within the bowels of Red Storm Entertainment, a new system for delivering fresh, new coffee was recently installed. For the sake of educating their employee populace, this educational tutorial video was created, and Red Storm was kind enough to share it with the rest of the world.

We all know that Hollywood’s been incorrectly depicting the ancient art of neck snapping for years now. Luckily, Master Ken is on hand to show us the right way.
Cerakote once again secured the urinal ads at SHOT Show, foregoing the (potentially messy) targets, for something a bit more generic.
It’s a… more modern adaption.

So, remember the 12-Course Meal in a Can that was featured on the site awhile ago? Well, UK-based video game retailer GAME is currently offering its own iteration, the Christmas Tinner, only with 9 layers. It’s currently being tested at the company’s Basingstoke store, and with any luck it will never be introduced past that location, much less the UK’s borders.
