    This is a video from the Slow Mo Guys (not the nickname I would've hoped for) of a fully automatic assault rifle being fired and recorded at 18,000 frames/second. For reference, that's 1,000 times the age I was when I touched my first boob, minus 4,000. Watching the casings b... / Continue →

    Gunshot wound sealer, or ULTRA-EXTREME HEAVY DAY tampon? This is the XStat, a syringe filled with rapidly expanding sponges that, when injected into an open gunshot wound, can prevent bleeding and seal the wound in as little as 15-seconds. Personally, if I get shot I'm hoping... / Continue →

    This is G2 Research's new R.I.P. Ammunition, a bullet that releases eight pieces of shrapnel upon entering its target. For the record, I would not like to be shot with it. Cupid's arrow? Absolutely. I'm lonely, hit me already you fat baby. After separation the tines travel ... / Continue →

    This is a video from RatedRR (more nudity than an R movie, but not a full-blown porno) of a bunch of different ammo types being fired underwater in super slow-motion (and high definition). Hollow points, full metal jackets, you name it. "Rubber bullets?" No rubber bullets. ... / Continue →

    This is a video of the Slow-Mo Guys firing handguns underwater and capturing it all on film to play back 1,000x slower than real life. You've probably already seen videos like this before though, so just give it a quick watch, then we can all complain about how James Bond movi... / Continue →

    This is a video of the Cheeto Cannon, an industrial air blower slightly modified to blast Cheetos at a person's face. I'm pretty sure the dude in the video doesn't catch a single one, which, based on the welts (not just Cheeto dust!) on his face afterwards, is probably a good ... / Continue →

    In cooler bullet news than yesterday, here's a series of cross-sectioned ammunition photographed by Sabine Pearlman. Pretty neat, but I've always wanted to see what a cannonball looks like on the inside. "Stop being stupid." It's not something you can just turn on and off li... / Continue →

    In please stop making us look bad news, a company in Idaho is selling pork-laced ammunition as a deterrent to radical Islamic terrorists. The concept is that the thought of being shot with pork, which is 'haram' (unclean), will deter extremists from committing terrorist acts w... / Continue →

    This is a video of some guy shooting tracer bullets across the surface of a lake and watching them skip like stones. It's really pretty. So pretty I'm going to do it every night from now on instead of watching the sun set. You hear that, sun? You're old news! "Then maybe I... / Continue →

    Ever wanted to open a beer bottle with a bullet? Don't be a sissy, just shoot the top off. But for the rest of you who aren't from West Virginia like I am, there's the .50-caliber Bullet Bottle Opener. It costs $8 and is made from a real Browning Machine Gun round. Me? I o... / Continue →

    Probably NSFW shots of the actual bullet HERE. WARNING: penis-shaped. These are a line of entirely inappropriate 'Deep Penetration Ammo'. They're bullets that look like dongs. They're real and you can get you own custom version (maybe an even teensier replica of your own sm... / Continue →

    Etsy seller DieselLaceDesign (I love the smell of diesel and lace!) is selling these wireless XBox 360 controllers (plus DIY kits) with spent 9mm shells in place of the buttons. Will they make you better at Call of Duty? No. Will they make your friends think you're cooler? ... / Continue →

    This is a $650 bulletproof iPhone case from Japanese manufacturer Marudai that can allegedly stop a .50-caliber round (but only from the rear). Unfortunately there's no PROOF it can stop a .50-caliber round, since they didn't bother making a video. So you're gonna just have t... / Continue →

    Because the new iPad came out last week, here's the requisite video of one getting destroyed by gunfire in slow motion. Dude starts off with an HK53 assault rifle, then, after that fails to do an acceptable amount of damage for his taste, finishes the the thing off with a Bene... / Continue →

    Look out your kitchen window. Your patio furniture is all wrecked to shit, isn't it? I know, that last BBQ of yours got out of hand. Shots were fired. Enter the $3,500 bulletproof polo from Miguel Caballero's Black Label Collection, just the thing you need to protect your ne... / Continue →

    That...doesn't look like it worked. Jalila Essaid is a woman. A woman with a dream. A dream of being bulletproof. Personally, I'd just stop running with a such a tough crowd and start working on an invisibility cloak, but that's just me and I'm what they call reasonable try... / Continue →

    These are bullets made out of Jell-O. No clue what they used to make them look so metallic, but hopefully something I can separate from feces with a magnet. The bullets were made as part of the 2011 Jell-O Mold Competition, which is a real competition with real athletes. And... / Continue →

    This is a 3-pound, $45 bulletproof clipboard from ThinkGeek. It's questionable for a number of reasons. 1) nobody but the lady administering my driving test uses a clipboard anymore and even she knows a bulletproof version isn't do her any good because I threatened to stab he... / Continue →

    These are a bunch of steampunk insects made out of old ammunition and pocket-watch parts by Tom Hardwidge. As you can see, they're pretty good looking. Unless you hate steampunk stuff, in which case they're probably pretty bad looking. Whatever side of the fence you yell ove... / Continue →

    Note: Video possibly NSFW depending on how your employer feels about a couple f-bombs. Audio is naturally low though so I say go for it. This is a video of some crazy Ruskie (whose accent alone makes the video worth a watch) demonstrating the effects different caliber bullets... / Continue →
