    This is a video from Demolition Ranch demonstrating what happens to a shotgun if a carrot is stuffed down the barrel before firing, a la Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd. In the cartoon, the shotgun always blows up in Elmer's face. In real life, the shotgun still fires and hits its ... / Continue →

    This is a video of Nerf gun lover Out Of Darts (he REALLY loves Nerf guns, and it shows) debuting his custom Zeus ball-shooting rifle, which he modified to hold 108 balls instead of the standard twelve. He uses a blower mounted on the back of the rifle to keep the balls moving... / Continue →

    This is a video from 1986 of Germans demonstrating the Leopard 2's fully stabilized main gun. They do so by filling a beer, setting it on top of the gun's muzzle, then speeding the tank around without spilling any beer. Most impressive. You know it's important to know where ... / Continue →

    This is the giant western diamondback rattlesnake that an Arkansas man (who looks suspiciously like one of my uncles) shot and killed after it bit one of his dogs. No word if the dog is okay, but that snake definitely isn't. If I was that guy I would use the snake to make my ... / Continue →

    This is Fallout 4's official launch trailer. It provides much more insight into what you'll actually be trying to accomplish in the game. Apparently The Institute, that mysterious advanced technology organization plays a major role, because they've created near human-like and... / Continue →

    Remember the zombie themed first-person shooter that Chatroulette participants were able control with voice commands? Well here comes the second level, which takes place trying to escape an alien spaceship. It's actually really amazing and you should watch it. Regardless, it... / Continue →

    The Battelle DroneDefender is a rifle designed to take over radio control of drones so you can bring them to the ground and stomp them. I just blasted myself in the nuts with one and now the doctor says I can't have kids for another 600 years which is actually fine with me bec... / Continue →

    This is a video of two cats taking out a horde of zombies (previously from the same folks: Assassin's Creed kitties). The production value is pretty high, and I would have headshotted that zombie in the striped trilby hat at least two hundred times to make sure nobody could ev... / Continue →

    This is a short video from Mythbusters of a handgun being fired and captured at 73,000 frames per second using a Phantom camera. That provides some super slow-motion footage. What's up with that mushroom cloud coming out of the barrel? Is that nuclear in nature? I'm gonna b... / Continue →

    Archery Tag is a new sport sweeping the nation (no clue if this is accurate) that combines the mechanics of archery and paintball. There isn't any paint though (although there should be), instead, opposing teams shoot foam-tipped arrows at each other and you are eliminated by ... / Continue →

    This is a video demo of the NERF Rival Zeus MXV 1200. It costs $50, runs on C batteries, and can shoot 12 foam balls up to 100-feet per seconds (~68MPH). It is for ages 14 and up and probably should not be pointed directly into your eyeball. Not that that's gonna stop me, b... / Continue →

    An 18-year old college student built a drone with a semi-automatic handgun attached as part of a Manufacturing Engineering Processes course. This is a brief video of that drone. This is not the first time it's been done. Currently it seems the student didn't break any laws, ... / Continue →

    This is the homemade CD launching gun made by Youtuber JZSlenker out of an angle grinder. It works beautifully. I'm going to build my own to launch CD's instead of clay pigeons for skeet shooting, then lay waste to my roommate's DVD collection. I will also break a bunch of h... / Continue →

    This is a video of Charles Tietjen sticking Nerf suction cup darts to his contacts and looking around like some sort of ultra creeper. I guess it was smart of Charles to only stick the darts to his contacts because I don't wear contacts and now both my eyeballs are hanging out... / Continue →

    This is a video of firearms expert/professional shooter Jerry Miculek firing two double barrel .45 ACP 1911 pistols made by Arsenal Firearms. He manages to squeeze off all twenty rounds in 1.5 seconds. That is a lot of bullets in a short amount of time. I remember the first ... / Continue →

    This is a video from Smarter Every Day of Alabama archer Byron Ferguson hitting a thrown aspirin tablet with an arrow, using an oldschool longbow (and not one of those fancy compound bows with sights and all the bells and whistles). Obviously, you're going to want Byron on you... / Continue →
