    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 →

    41-year old John R. Morales used to play McGruff the Crime Dog. That was many moons ago. Apparently since then he started a massive pot growing operation and was just sentenced to 16 years in the slammer for the results of a raid on his home in 2011. And that, my friends, is... / Continue →

    This is the stainless steel handgun that was 3-D printed by the folks at Solid Concepts in Texas (where else?) using a direct metal laser sinistering (DMLS) technique. Impressive. Not impressive enough for me to want to fire, but I've never had a gun explode up in my hands be... / Continue →

    This is the $150,000 Intimidator from McDermott Handcrafted Cues. It started life as an 82-pound piece of solid stainless steel, and 1,862 man hours later, became...this thing. This thing I wouldn't want to see anybody swinging that in a bar fight. Not unless they're on my s... / Continue →

    In holy shit that's terrifying news, his is a conceptual Combat Alpha/Big Dog. And by conceptual I mean there's no way the government doesn't already have a bunch of these. If you don't think we have weaponized Big Dogs running around in the jungles and deserts across this pl... / Continue →

    This is a test video of what's allegedly the first fully 3-D printed plastic gun (previously: an AR-15 with 3-D printed receiver) firing a bullet and not shattering to pieces in the shooter's hands like I expected. PROTIP: Never bring a plastic fork to a knife fight. I've nev... / Continue →
