“I used to be into guns, but that’s not a realistic plan,” says Michael Robertson, 69, of Utah. “How many men do you need to guard a place 24 hours a day? Twenty?”
Hungry? Go hunting. Bored? Find a shooting range. Does someone pose an immediate threat to your life? Defend yourself. Is there too much water trapped in the awnings of your $400 million FIA Grade 1-rated Formula One track? Um, wait a second, this is a new one. Behold: the most Texan track fix ever.
The seller of today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe two-tone Bertone says he’ll take cash for the car, or a trade of light armament. We don’t do guns for butter here, so we’ll have to see if his cash offer is a-okay, or if he’s just shooting his mouth off.
The Fifth Element is one of those movies you can’t help but watch all the way through whenever it’s on TV. There are just too many wonderful moments to miss, but clearly Adam Savage’s favorite was the reveal of the Zorg ZF-1 blaster. Why else would he spend over 10 years building a replica of his own?
Have you ever tried to get something that you shouldn’t through US Customs? Frankly, I don’t know how people summon the nerve. Whether it’s illegal drugs, exotic animal meat, or counterfeit purses, people will try to smuggle just about anything. And everyone seems to have their own favorite hiding places. But if any…
The board game Operation is a great example of how negative feedback can also negatively affect your performance. But instead of playing in constant fear of that loud buzzing sound, when you touch the sides while playing this sadistic version of Operation, you get blasted with a paintball gun. Sounds like a lot of fun.
Your motorcycle gear can protect you from a lot of things, but it definitely can’t protect you from stupid. Or guns, it definitely can’t protect you from guns either.
I live in North Carolina now, and generally, I like the state: good barbecue, Buckminster Fuller lived here, Cheerwine, and we’re one of the only 72 states to have the cardinal as our state bird. But then I read about this allegedly drunk idiot outside Charlotte, NC who police say shot at the people who tried to help…
Before you decide to shoot that drone out of your backyard, there are a few important things you need to know.
Woo, boy. Here’s video showing Lockheed Martin conducting the first aerial test for the F-35’s gatling gun. Called the GAU-22/A, the weapon can pop off 3,300 25mm rounds per minute. The gun fires so fast that your eyes might miss it. Even though the test was successful, the GAU-22/A won’t be combat ready until 2019…
The V-3 “supergun” was meant to win the war for Germany. In 1943, for the first time since World War II began, Hitler was on the back foot. Allied bombs were devastating German cities and the Fuhrer was rattled. His proposed V-3 cannon would be the biggest gun the world had seen.
Staunch gun rights advocate Ted Cruz is here seen holding a shotgun while being interviewed by CNN. Can you see what he’s doing wrong? That’s right, he’s violating the first two rules of gun safety.
There are at least 347 million guns in America. No matter your opinion of them, it is highly likely that you will encounter one at least sometime during your life. This is what everyone needs to know in order to be safe around guns.
When you got one of the biggest guns in the world, you can’t just pop in a new magazine and start firing again. Well, you can but the new ‘magazine’ for the GAU-8 Avenger is so ginormous it needs to be trucked in and requires multiple Air Force guys to get the gun reloaded. It takes time to get giant bullets on board!…
Products like thermal imaging, weapon-mounted range finders and even a new handgun integrally built around its silencer sound like dreams come true to firearms enthusiasts, but to-date such technology has remained military-focussed and too expensive. No more.
As a kid, fire drills taught you fire safety. And you haven’t been killed by a fire. Your parents trained similarly for nuclear war. With 248 mass shootings in US in the 238 days of 2015, it’s time we began treating those the same way. This is how.

It’s not even the blast from the cannon of the M1128 Stryker that scares me the most (though it is a very impressive blast). It’s the fact that right after the 105mm cannon goes boom, the world around it looks post-apocalyptic. The ground shakes so hard from the gun that it looks like lost souls are being released…
