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…
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.
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!…

Before you decide to shoot that drone out of your backyard, there are a few important things you need to know.
North Korea has been executing its political prisoners and unwanted elite by firing squad for decades. But a shot to the heart apparently isn’t brutal enough for Kim Jong Un, who’s reportedly using anti-aircraft cannons to kill dissidents, according to at least one watchdog group.
In response to rioting and violent protests in Baltimore over the death of Freddie Gray, the National Guard was deployed for riot control in Maryland for the first time since the 1968s race riots. Some 500 troops patrol the city, clad in body armor, with automatic rifles strapped across their chests.
You’ve probably never fired an M4 carbine. Until a couple weeks ago, I hadn’t either. But at a recent DARPA demo day, I loaded a magazine (also a first for me), snuggled up to the deadly assault rifle, and looked through one of the most technologically advanced smart scopes ever built. Then I pulled the trigger.
The second-gen Ford Bronco is a great looking off-roader, but if you want to make it cooler without spending an Icon Bronco's worth of money, bolting on a Minigun might just be your answer.
The TSA happily shows off all of the weapons they catch inside carryon baggage every month, but what happens when guns are taken onto planes as part of an inside job, by people with airport security clearance. That's just what happened as the Feds busted up a gun smuggling channel between Atlanta and NYC.
And here I was thinking that the only thing Motor City kids were up to these days was blexting. Here's a video of a couple guys walking around Detroit's North End neighborhood with some scary-looking rifles. Who knows why?
The military masterminds at DARPA have just changed everything you think you know about bullets. Meet the Extreme Accuracy Tasked Ordnance, or EXACTO, a .50 caliber bullet that maneuvers itself midair to stay locked on target. Here's footage of the first live test: it sure as hell looks like the technology works.
Generally, I don't think cars and guns mix very well, but the owners of this Brookville, OH used car dealership seem to differ. They're offering a voucher for a free handgun and concealed-carry course for anyone who spends $4995 or more at their lot. I guess that's better than a big inflatable gorilla?
Wanna know what happens when you shoot up a Pontiac with a humongous .50-cal machine gun? Hint: it explodes. A lot. And it looks incredible when you slow it right down.
Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmorressi has been locked up in Mexican jails since March, when Federales arrested him for possessing firearms on their side of the border. Tahmorressi maintains he's incarcerated over a misunderstanding, and some members of Congress want to suspend US aid to Mexico until charges are dropped.
What does a frogman do when he encounters and enemy frogman underwater? Well, he can attempt a watery, zero gravity-like knife fight to the death, or her can pull his Heckler & Koch P11 underwater pistol!
