It’s inventive, and it has ‘gun’ in its name, so I’m obligated to write about it. What it is, is the PFM-A5 paper airplane gun, a motorized gun which is capable of manufacturing and firing paper airplanes. It loads from a reward paper tray, and sports a fire rate of up to 120 planes/min.

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?
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:

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:

“Check Static Lines!”
The Paratrooper Pop Top will open your beer in style. Fashioned from a static line snap hook, each Pop Top ships in it’s own slip on silk bag made from a retired parachute.

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…)
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!
If you’ve got $5900 laying around, you’re in need of a brand-new table, and you happen to like Cold War-era fighter jets, then Boeing is offering this F-4 Phantom II Exhaust Cone Table for sale on their online store. The table features anodized aluminum legs, measures in at 24″ x 40″, and weights 84 lbs. If anything else, it’s sure to be quite the conversation starter.
Blue Bell has released a camouflage-inspired ice cream flavor named, appropriately enough, ‘Camo ‘n Cream’. The ice cream is composed of three separate flavors: Pistachio Almond, Milk Chocolate and cream cheese. It should be on store shelves, although it will be a limited release.
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’ 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.

There’s gotta be a joke about a smoking barrel or something in this. Also, I have to wonder if their vaporizers come with Picatinny rails.

If you missed out on your chance to pick up a pack of Nuka Cola Quantum-branded Jones Soda from your local Target store, you’re (kinda) in luck. Jones is currently selling it direct to the consumer, however there is a few caveats:
1) One order per person – 4 bottles per order
2) Quantity is limited
3) It’s pretty darn expensive
On that last bit, it’s not online auction price bad, but at $27/4 bottles, it’s pretty close. This is purely a collectors item, folks. If you want the taste, crack open a Jones Berry Lemonade instead; it’s the same thing.

Back in October 2014, I wrote a brief article about a class action lawsuit being conducted against Red Bull, and the resulting settlement that you could claim if you qualified as a purchaser of Red Bull products. I put my own claim form in around that time, and eventually it faded from my memory.
Well, yesterday, I received the above package, and was a bit confused about its origin until I opened it up and found a 4-pack of 8.4 oz. cans of regular Red Bull.
Comparatively, EOTech is pretty quick on getting those refunds out on their Holographic Sights.

Massdrop is currently having a deal on “Tactical” Christmas Stockings. The stocking itself isn’t new (I have a story on one from last year, and they’ve been around for even longer than that), but the 25%-off MSRP might be an attractive buy to some interested parties. They’re available in Black, Gray, or Tati-Claus Red.
Oh, and you’ll need a Massdrop account to see the page and actually make a purchase, so here’s a screenshot which should serve as a sufficient preview:
Insignificant Fish Industries has created a 4.4 oz flask called the “First Shot” based on Han Solo’s DL-44 heavy blaster pistol. The silver muzzle is the flask’s cap and unscrews to be a 1.5oz shot glass. As of now, it is an unlicensed product, so it’s technically unavailable, but here’s to hoping it gets the go ahead for actual production sometime down the line.
