Can body armor stand up to an assault rifle? Can a ceramic plate not shatter against the bullets of an AR-15 and AK-47 hybrid weapon? Demolition Ranch investigated by shooting the crap out of the body armor to see how long it takes for a bullet to pierce and penetrate through.
Science is fun! Especially when it is used to create a homemade cannon that looks so cool when it fires. This guy connected a self-igniting propane torch to some tubes and then colored the flame so that it pops off green when it blasts. It looks like an alien’s weapon!
RatedRR is back again with the big guns. How big? 20mm big! Witness the power of the Lahti L-39, a Finnish 20mm anti-tank rifle used during World War II. So powerful and accurate that they even took down airplanes with its fully automatic variant. Here you can see it destroy an Apple iMac.
In all your years of owning an iPhone, I hope you never have to use it as a bulletproof vest. Because it wouldn't work. It might be able to survive a soft drop on the dirt and come away cracked on concrete and barely scathe away after a quick dip in water but when you pit a iPhone 5C in all its plastic glory against a…
With weird western Cowboys & Aliens coming out next week, we couldn't help but wonder: were there any real 19th century weapons that could compare to Daniel Craig's alien energy weapon? As always, never underestimate the awesome craziness of the 19th century.
I wasn't a huge fan of the transition between cool-down guns and ammo-using guns in Mass Effect 2, but none of that matters if each copy of the game came with one of these Volpin Props-created replica rifles.
I'm sure that Halo assault rifle you mocked up for Halloween 2004 was nice and all. But unless it's also a fully functional Nerf gun that holds three magazines and "a bunch" of darts, you lose. Here's the video proof:
"Fifty percent of kills happen on the corners," according to SmartSight inventor Matthew Hagerty. And his creation—a rifle sight camera that wirelessly transmits real-time video back to its soldier—will help ensure that our soldiers win those battles.
I'm sure this concept design for a Post-It note dispenser shaped like a rifle is a joke, but I don't get it. I mean, how are you supposed to kill someone with Post-It notes?? It makes no sense! [Yanko Design]
This is the Lund Variable Velocity Weapons System, a combustion-powered rifle that can both kill or stun an enemy. It was developed by the creators of Honey My Baby Pony and Tickle Me Elmo dolls for the Pentagon. No kidding.
Sensitive data is no match for the Rfiddler rifle. It can burn out RFID tags and USB sticks by zapping them with a strong electromagnetic field generated by a hacked 0.6kJ photo-flash unit driving a 50 turn copper spool.
The EXACTO (EXtreme ACcuracy Tasked Ordnance) rifle will conceivably be able to fire accurately at far longer distances than are possible now by combating weather with self-guiding bullets. Yes, you read that right.
Lighting a BBQ can be done with a match. But, as any NRA member can attest, it's a job best left to a gun.
When we recently posted a Vietnam-era Bolex camera with a rifle stock attached, we thought the concept was a little nuts. Then Army Reserve Staff Sgt. and wartime photographer Jeffrey Duran set us straight.
No doubt inspired by games like Gears of War and countless zombie killing scenarios in popular culture, a weapons enthusiast on the AR-15 forum has managed to modify his rifle with a chainsaw bayonet. There isn't much as far as details are concerned, but the video after the break complete with maniacle hillbilly…
US sodiers are not the only ones getting advanced uniforms. In fact, Koreans may be taking the lead with a new stormtrooper suit that-if it goes beyond the vaporware stage-will include every sci-fi technology you can imagine. From a heads-up-display helmet to personal cooling and heating syss to a matching weapon that…
You may be tempted to buy the Neon Scarface Rifle Lamp, and you may even notice that it has an affordable $67 price tag. But we don't recommend the purchase because somewhere, deep beneath the Earth's crust, there lives a little mole-like man who keeps a very large list, and people who buy things like this lamp, Elvis…
For the ultimate game of Duck Hunt, Marksman Training Systems is offering the ST-2 shooting simulator-the first on the market for shotgun and rifle shooting. Co-developed by the British Association for Shooting and Conservation, the simulator is so accurate that its used by Russian and Slovakian national clay shooting
Weapon tech fans or Ghost Recon fanatics will remember the the corner shot rifle. This mod has the same camera, LCD and hinge that lets a soldier shoot around building edges without getting in the line of fire. But this one is wrapped up in a cat suit, just like the one that used to drive the car in Saturday Night…
