Artist Constantine Zlatev, working with Kostadin Ilov, a computer scientist at UC Berkeley, has come up with a clever way to repurpose old weapons as candy dispensers so that they only pose a risk to a perfect smile.
Unicode 9.0, which will be out June 21, is one of the most highly anticipated releases in emoji history. Finally you will avail yourself of the need to type out the letters for avocado, bacon, selfie, face palm, and pregnant. But last month, one controversial emoji was removed from the lineup: Rifle.
Not to be outdone by their their American counterparts' M203 grenade launchers with fancy new SAGM rounds, China's People's Liberation Army has been hard at work
ripping off the design developing an under-barrel grenade launcher with similar laser-guided capabilities. There's nowhere to run (or hide) once you're in…
Sometimes, small arms fire just doesn't cut it. So when special forces teams around the world need more long-range, tank-stopping punch than a conventional bazooka or panzerschreck can deliver, they give Carl a call.
Different strokes, different folks. Different guns, different countries. Here's a map showing the military issue rifle for each country in the world. You'll see familiar M4s, AK-47s, AK-74s, some M16s and tinkles of other weaponry. Judging by the map's choice of colors, it seems to group weapons that are of a similar…
It's never a good idea to mix guns and alcohol unless you're using guns to shoot at alcohol. And we're not talking about just popping pellets at empty beer cans, we're talking about our friends at RatedRR firing AK-47s and AR-15s at full bottles of wine and champagne to create a bubbly (sorry) explosion. Watch as beer…
Mag-guns are pretty impractical, but they're always fun to fire. Larsplatoon knows first-hand. A few years ago he put together a crazy single-shot coilgun that tore up household appliances one 1.25 kilojoule shot at a time. Now, he's opted for full auto. And it's just as fantastic to behold.
This week Joerg busted out the deactivated M16A1 rifle (which he obviously has) and turned it into a slingshot. The launcher band mounts on the underside of the rifle barrel, and the weapon shoots two Cold Steel "Hide Out" neck knives aka really scary/sharp little suckers.
The Kalashnikov is one of the most well-known and widely-used weapons in history. More than 75 million of the Russian assault rifles have been produced since it entered service in 1949. And while AK's are renowned for their simplicity and durability, the 64 year old line is long overdue for a design update. But can…
A company called TrackingPoint has developed what it calls an Intelligent Digital Tracking Scope that lets a shooter virtually mark a location so that the rifle will only fire when the intended target is in its crosshairs. Even if the trigger is squeezed, the rifle will only fire when it's on target.
Anybody who knows his rifle from his gun can tell you how essential it is to keep a firearm cleaned and lubricated. So after a long day at the range (or at the top of a clock tower), here's how to keep your rifle in perfect working order.
Just because the US is the worldwide leader in military might doesn't mean the other world powers are just sitting on their thumbs. No. They're designing and building their own weapons systems, then selling them at trade shows like Eurosatory 2012, the world's largest military weapons expo.
Man hero Iraqveteran8888 from YouTube just posted a video showcasing a monster AR-15 rifle that looks more like a mini-fighter jet than a gun. It's been customized with 9 30-round magazines, 3 lasers, 3 red dot sights for 100, 200 and 300 yards, 4 flashlights and a gunk of other human destroying, earth squashing…
Atten-shun! Just when you thought you have seen all there was to be seen in the internet, here comes the riflestache. Guys making photos of themselves holding guns with mustaches painted in them. Yes, that's all. As you were. [Kitup]
The Allies ultimately won World War 2, of course, but at great cost. Nowhere is this more true than the great 1,000-mile Eastern Front, where German and Soviet forces mixed battle, bloodshed and war crimes in equal mix.
Dan Sarkar, a self-described "Appleseed fanboi," says he couldn't live any longer in a universe without cool replicas of the guns we see in the series.
You can put 3D on all the kiddie movies and cartoons you want. Me? I'll take my third dimension with a healthy dose of bullet shells and giant rims. Oh, and make it slow-motion, if you don't mind. Like this!
