Cobalt Kinetics: Looks like a ray gun

A shiny AR-15 from Cobalt Kinetics, as seen on the NRA floor:


What I found interesting about first was the 57% selector switch:


Not quite certain why but it was certainly interesting. But the thing that I found most intriguing was the double forward bolt assist:


But this is no ordinary forward bolt assist. This one actually acts as a bolt release. The release is proprietary and only available on their guns. They’ve taken the most useless AR-15 part (the forward bolt assist) and made it adequately useful. It took some thumb stretching but, with some effort, I could operate it with my right hand.

George Zimmerman Sold His Gun

For $120K, reportedly.

Gone to Louisville

I’ll be heading to Louisville, KY for the NRA Annual Meeting. So, as often happens at these things, blogging may be light. Or there may be a ton of it. I’ll get there tomorrow. If you’re there, look me up. And, other than a Thursday night thing, I’ve made no real plans for Friday or Saturday. Let me know if you have recommendations.

Top 3 gun wants

A list, from Oddball. I’ve pretty much got all the guns I need. Assuming no concern for price or anything, my list of wants would 1) a big ass revolver, like this Korth here. I’ve never been really into wheelguns but they look like they’d be a blast.

2) A machine gun. Just to say I have a machine gun. Probably a registered M16 lower that I’d get all Magpul fanboy on.

3) A mid to long range gun that, probably in .308, to shoot Boomershoot.

Hope and change

A civil rights victory in DC


A federal judge has ruled that a key provision of the Districts new gun law is likely unconstitutional, ordering D.C. police to stop requiring individuals to show good reason to obtain a permit to carry a firearm on the streets of the nations capital.

In imposing a preliminary injunction pending further litigation, U.S. District Judge Richard J. Leon reignited a running battle over the Second Amendment in the District and its courts where three different judges have now weighed in with varying conclusions.

Some good points

Why I Switched to Double Action Semi-Autos. Todd Green, IIRC, said something similar regarding AIWB. I prefer the same trigger pull every time and haven’t switched to AIWB because I drive a lot.

So, someone does actually listen to the Brady Campaign to Cling to Relevancy?

The Brady Bunch shamed Chuck Schumer (D-Ranged) about not pushing gun control. So, he’s introducing a gun control bill. It’s probably the “background check your friends and family” bill.

Didn’t fit the desired narrative

For her gun control film, Katie Couric interviewed John Lott for four hours. And none of it made it to the film.

I’m skeptical

A UT (not the UT) police officer’s gun done went off by it’s own self.

The last time I count the number of words in an Uberpost*

Kevin has penned his last Uberpost:

So I’m pretty much done being outraged by it all.

I feel ya, man. I find myself giving a whole lot less of a fuck lately too.

* 4,255. It’s a little tradition I’ve had.

ETA: WordPress does not like umlauts.

So, Obama invited this kid to the White House, right?

The stupid, it burns:

A student brought a fake gun made of rolled up paper to a school in Hartford this morning, which led to a lockdown.

Because you’re an idiot?

Look, Forrest, if you don’t want a gun, cool. Don’t get one. No problem. However, when you put pen to paper (or fingers to internet stupid machine or whatever) and explain why, do so in a logical manner. This is just stupid:

I decided there was one principal reason I wouldnt buy a handgun: I dont want to live in fear. I know that sounds strange a gun is supposed to bring peace of mind. But to keep a piece at your side is to look at the world through gunsights. Its a profoundly anti-social posture. To me, carrying a handgun is an acknowledgement of weakness, not strength. Its an admission that youre out of ideas for how to deal with people, even those especially those who mean you harm. Its a failure of imagination, a failure of wits and, in the case of open carry, a threat of violence to every passing person.

No, it’s not a sign of weakness. Much like not driving a car means you’re slow. It’s acknowledging that you are a tool using primate. And you can be more effective.

Obviously, a serious threat to the homeland

“justice-involved individuals”

The dumbing down and controlling of the language for special classes to pander to:

Its only May, but I think Ive found the euphemism of the year: According to Team Obama, criminals should now be declared justice-involved individuals.

The neo-Orwellianism comes to us from the bizarre flurry of last-minute diktats, regulations and bone-chilling threats collectively known to fanboys as Obamas Gorgeous Goodbye.

Well, he wants to force employers not to ask about criminal history. I’m sure he’s OK with removing the “are you a felon” question on a form 4473 for a gun purchase, right?

Every thing is getting tactical

Tactical spork. I do admit that I do own a couple of these.


A civil rights victory

Glock works like Glock is supposed to

And they settle. Kid grabs a gun, shoots dad, paralyzing him. They sue Glock saying the gun’s lack of a grip safety was the reason. Instead of the fact they gave their kid access to a fucking Glock.

I guess the settlement was cheaper than attorney’s fees.

Situational awareness

Another open carrier had his gun stolen.

From the video, it looks like the guy had the butt of the gun hanging out of his pocket. And this:

The victim then chased the suspect in an attempt to retrieve his stolen gun but the thief turned around and pointed the pistol at the victim before fleeing, according to Rothschild.

The time to react to a gun grab is during the actual grab. When they’ve already got it, it’s a bit more risky.

This guy

So, in an effort to stay classy, George Zimmerman decided to auction the gun he used in lawful self defense to kill Trayvon Martin. Fortunately, the auction site saw the PR disaster that was and pulled the auction.
