APC Bar

Friday’s usual weird weapon, military related post. Normally I try to bring things that are affordable, but this project may be out of the budget range for most people. If you can snag an old surplus M113 hull, you can always cut it in half and turn it into a bar.

The things they carry…

A very interesting photojournalism piece on a few Syrian rebels on what they carry and why.

1.)  Kachadur Manukian, 25: “They killed my mother and father. I will kill them with my knife. I will kill them like I would kill a goat,”

2.) Hamzi Hama, 27: “All I can carry is my weapon and the clothes I wear. I don’t have time for other belongings. I don’t even carry my wallet anymore; what can I buy?”

3.) Youssef, 28: “My homemade grenades. I am the only one in our group able to build them. The guys like me for that. It’s my mark, and I want to leave one.”

4.) Omar Fattah, 29: “Before the war, my father gave me this custom-made AK-47 machine gun. I will bring it back to him once we have defeated the regime.”

5.) Abou Abdou, 25: “I’m in charge of our bombs. I make them, I dismantle them, and I use the enemy’s own artillery to kill them. I like bombs because they tickle my ears when they explode. It’s a nice feeling.”

Magnum Research BFR

The letters stand for “Biggest, Finest, Revolver”, although jokingly in the gun community it’s called the “Big Fucking Revolver”, which is a pretty appropriate name. This is a custom BFR chambered in .50 Beowulf, a caliber seen mostly with the Alexander Arms AR-15 variant of the same name as the ammo.

This video was uploaded in 2006 but I think it might be older, I’m not 100% sure. Seriously if you look at the comments on Youtube for it, people are still talking about Counterstrike players thinking they know everything about guns…so this is pre-Call of Duty, even pre-Halo.

Fair warning, I know some people will comment about the lack of proper safety procedures but the test is interesting.

Ever watch a television show or movie where someone get shot and they fall back flying dramatically? The test in the video demonstrates energy released and energy received.

In the video the taller guy in the vest gets shot at near point blank range with an FAL, which is chambered in 7.62x51mm. The guy in blue with the shorts later shoots himself in the stomach with a .44 Magnum while wearing a vest.

For the most part the human body reacts to the pain and shock a bullet creates. Under the influence of mind altering substances, such as bath salts, a person can get shot multiple times but keep advancing forward because the normal reaction to pain has been inhibited.

Still, these guys are crazy or were very confident in the vests.

Say hello to my little friend…

The first photo may even be called a photoshop but this is an actual functioning firearm. It’s basically a over-size Remington Model 1858. In the last two photos you can see the real revolver next to it’s gigantic counterpart. A custom built project, the revolver weighs 99 lbs and is a little over 4 feet long.

It’s caliber is listed at 28mm and it uses a ball projectile. This is not the Pfeifer Zeliska although it is often mistaken as such. It was inducted into the Guinness World Records as the largest operational revolver ever made.

Axeball Bat?

I rarely comment on knives, axes etc, but this is a unique exception. Maybe I’ll do this as a summer side-project. Title has the linked source for a more detailed view and explanation. Builder mentioned the metal used is not blade-worthy considering it was a prototype.
