Forgotten Weapons – Schwarzlose 1908 Blow-Forward Pistol

August 3rd, 2014

Chances are good you’ve never heard of the Schwarzlose 1908 Blow-Forward pistol. It’s one of only a few blow-forward operation pistols from the late 19th/early 20th century, and saw limited commercial success.

The Venture Bros. – Season 6 Teaser

August 2nd, 2014

In true teaser fashion all we get is a few flashes of some backgrounds, the promise of a Gargantua-2 special later this year, and…. oh, yeah, a mysterious new man clad all in blue who’s been bumping off members of the Guild of Calamitous Intent. Who could it possibly be?

NERF Zombie Strike Chainsaw

August 1st, 2014

20140801-154732.jpg

A new addition to the Zombie Strike line, this chainsaw takes an obvious cue from the Lancer in Gears of War, but it’s pretty badass so we’ll forgive ‘em. Made of NERF’s trademark foam, it functions as a standalone toy chainsaw, all marked up with battle damage and the like. Pressing the green button on either side will produce chainsaw noises, although the left side also functions as the speaker so unfortunately the sound gets a bit muffled when in use. The coolest feature is its compatibility with the NERF tactical rail, so it can be attached to the forend of any compatible NERF blaster.

The Zombie Strike Chainsaw should be available wherever NERF is sold.

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For Red Band Trailer (NSFW)

July 31st, 2014

‘A Dame to Kill For’ is looking like a decent sequel to the first Sin City movie. Fair warning, the trailer is violent, and more importantly actually seems to spoil quite a bit.

SIG SAUER Launches New Webstore, Expanded Product Lines

July 30th, 2014

SIGStore

NEWINGTON, N.H. (July 31, 2014) — SIG SAUER® has launched a redesigned webstore, offering an expanded selection of SIG SAUER branded clothing, merchandise, accessories, and a new line of Mitch Rosen designed holsters.

The SIG SAUER webstore has always been the premier online resource for factory parts and accessories. Now fans can show their affinity for the SIG SAUER brand with a selection of men’s and women’s shirts, sweatshirts, hats, and drinkware.

“SIG SAUER owners are passionate about their firearms,” said Jeff Creamer, SIG SAUER Executive Director and Chief Merchandise Manager. “Now they can show that passion with products that fit the SIG SAUER brand.”

In addition to new clothing, SIG SAUER has partnered with Mitch Rosen Extraordinary Gunleather to provide a line of SIG SAUER-specific holsters, including hard-to-find holsters for handguns such as the SP2022®, 1911, P320, P250® and P290®. Right- and left-hand models are available in most patterns.

“Mitch Rosen is one of the top holster manufacturers out there, and we’re excited to offer these products,” Creamer said.

While many of the products in the webstore are new, Creamer said they are just the beginning.

“Expect to see more and more products being added in the future,” he said. “We’re working with some of the best clothing and accessory manufacturers to develop some really cool items.”

Edit: SIG Sauer has revised their shipping rates for SIG apparel. They’ll be cutting shipping to $9.95 and offering free shipping on all order $100 or more.

Deadpool Leaked Test Footage

July 29th, 2014


Deadpool Test Footage in HD by itsartmag

Some shaky cam footage of a test film for a potential Deadpool movie was leaked a few days ago. It was pulled, but thankfully the powers that be decided to release the actual test film on the internet, and man is it great. Note two things:

1) This is a few years old, and was put together to try and sell a Deadpool movie to Fox. Thankfully, the buzz on this test footage has been pretty positive, so they may attempt to revitalize the project after all!

2) It’s 100% CGI, but it’s not likely that a full length theatrical release would be.

The Three Amigos – Bushnell Bear Grylls BackTrack D-Tour

July 28th, 2014

360310_1

The BackTrack D-Tour is designed to allow the user to find their way back to a custom waypoint that can be marked with the device. Using the D-Tour, we found that it’s best to travel a steady pace to allow the device to calibrate your directions. It’s worth noting that use in an area with a strong presence of iron or other magnetic metals can cause an error in the path finding. Additionally, the D-Tour is compatible with most personal computers, and can show the course, length, speed, elevation, and temperature of the most recently logged trip.

The BackTrack also comes with a rescue mirror which includes a handy Morse code guide.

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.
