I could sit and play with it all day...

The LaRue Tactical Weapon Profiler that is. You can custom build yourself a big sexy custom Armalite rifle using all the bits that LaRue build. You could spend all day mucking about with it, like fuzzy felt, but for grown-ups.

I found a link to this on MilitaryPhotos.net, along with this little gif...

The Monday Gunfight

It's crazy, unrealistic, and a bit daft, but it's bloody cool and the pistols have the best muzzle flashes (even if they are quite possibly CG). It's also topical, as it stars the current Batman, Christian Bale, so it might get me some traffic.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Kurt Wimmer's Equilibrium.

Army Code

Massive Defense have put up pictures of the Army Code L119A1 SFW foresight (seen at the bottom of this page that they are due to be producing in the near future (website says July, but as July is nearly over, we can assume that it'll be August or later).

Lots of people are eager to get their hands on this, and Army Code/Massive Defense are obviously aware of the high demand for this largely pointless accessory, and have priced it at £29, which has to be at least £20 too much. As their supply of the now mythical L119A1 barrel has dried up and they seem unable to say when they will again be in stock, I'm not gonna hold my breath. Modifying a standard M4 foresight with milliput (or not being so bloody obsessive about my L119A1 project) is now again on the cards.

Presumably, they have it at this price to pay for their new website.

The Monday Gunfight

It's been parodied, copied and posted all over the internet, but it's still one of the greatest movie gunfights ever. It's the lobby scene from The Matrix.

Just Plain Crazy

Just nicked this off MilitaryPhotos.net. A video of some crazy French Puma pilot making a veeeeery low pass. Watch the guy duck as the helo goes over.

New Links

I've just added a few new links to the Airsoft Links page:

AirBana UK Airsoft Map

South Yorkshire Airsoft

Grange Farm Airsoft

Better Battles

Red Troop

I'd also like to take this opportunity to give props to the amazing Tokyo Model Company who have just supplied me with a NSN ACOG replica and a detachable sling mount in lieue of the Army Code barrel that I ordered in February. I've pretty much given up on Army Code, but the L119A1 SFW project will go on.

Midweek Motivation

I seem to be doing everything a day late. Like the Monday Gunfight, I should have posted this yesterday, but who cares. No-one actually reads this crap anyway.

The Monday Gunfight (Slightly Later Than Advertised)

I know it's Tuesday, but I haven't yet got into the routine of posting a gunfight every Monday yet. I'll try and do better next month. By way of an apology, here is a great gunfight from a little known, yet excellent film called The Way of the Gun starring Ryan Phillippe, Benicio Del Toro and James Caan. Enjoy.

L119A1 Project

Just had this email from Massive Defense:

Hi David,

Thanks for your email. L119A1 Front sight will release in the coming few weeks. Meanwhile I don't have any news for when will the barrel back in stock.

Thanks & regards,
M.D.S./ Massive Defense Shop


Full Battle Rattle

I just found a link to this slightyl bizarre movie trailer on MilitaryPhotos.net. It's a movie called Full Battle Rattle about the US Army's Iraq training village in the Mojave Desert. Having watched the trailer, I'm not quite sure what to make of it. It depicts life amidst a full-blown training exercise that also features 1500 Iraqi-Americans role-playing as Iraqi citizens. It all seems a bit light hearted and playful, which I'm not sure is a good way to prepare for war.

Midweek Motivation

It's Wednesday. It's the middle of the week and it's not always easy to keep going through the week. Friday is only two days away and here's the first in a series of motivational posters to keep you going. Yes, I know every Blogger in the world posts these, but they are always entertaining and it's a cheap way of generating search engine hits. Booyah!

The Monday Gunfight

The first in a series of movie gunfights. Hopfully, I'll remember to do this every monday to try and make an actual series of it. Alternatively, I may forget and it'll be the shortest series in blog history.

Part One: The Bank Robbery Gunfight from Heat.
