CCW to the max, amirite?
Massdrop is currently having a deal on “Tactical” Christmas Stockings. The stocking itself isn’t new (I have a story on one from last year, and they’ve been around for even longer than that), but the 25%-off MSRP might be an attractive buy to some interested parties. They’re available in Black, Gray, or Tati-Claus Red.
Oh, and you’ll need a Massdrop account to see the page and actually make a purchase, so here’s a screenshot which should serve as a sufficient preview:
Did you have a good Turkey day? Tell us about it in the comment section. Oh, and enjoy this completely unrelated clip from the greatest gangster movie never made:

Have you taken a look at Arsenal’s Double Barrel 1911 and thought to yourself “Gee, I would sure love an airsoft version of that!” Well, the folks at WE Airsoft have you covered, as they’ve recently unveiled their upcoming Double Barrel WE 1911 airsoft pistol. It’s been engineered with a unique double-hammer assembly and double-trigger assembly, and is currently undergoing intense testing.
There’s also a video, but unfortunately I’ve never had any luck with embedding Facebook videos, so you’ll have to follow the link instead: www.facebook.com/weairsoft/videos/vb.302822296408552/1112394138784693/?type=3&theater
Stay tuned for more info as it becomes available.

Usually, I’m pretty content with just showing off cool new NERF blasters without knowing the details of their operating mechanism, but this educational video from YouTube Channel engineerguy shows how a particular pistol-style NERF blaster functions. It’s actually pretty cool to see how this particular model works.
November 18th 2015, London, UK – Content Media is set to release the highly anticipated Halo: The Fall of Reach on VOD across The UK, Europe, Scandinavia, Australia, Asia, Africa, and South America, on December 1st 2015.
After releasing the live action features Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn and Halo: Nightfall, Content Media is ready for the next chapter of the epic Halo saga: On December 1st, the animated feature Halo: The Fall of Reach will reveal the beginning of the well-known science fiction universe on DVD, Blu-ray and VOD.
Based on the Halo novel of writer Eric Nylund, the 65-minute feature tells the dramatic tale of the origin and intrigue behind the SPARTAN program that propelled characters like the Master Chief and Dr. Catherine Halsey into the pantheon of Halo lore. The story reveals the events that brought Master Chief and Blue Team together, including their Spartan training and their daring mission to strike back at the Covenant during the first days of the deadly alien invasion.
The animation is produced and directed by SEQUENCE, the award-winning Vancouver-based animation studio responsible for the “Terminals” featured in Halo 4 and Halo 2: Anniversary, and this marks their most ambitious and high-fidelity Halo animation yet.
With more than 65 million sold copies Halo is an award-winning collection of properties that have transcended video games and grown into a global entertainment phenomenon. Halo: The Fall of Reach will available to rent or buy on December 1st 2015.
I’ve shown a few kill count supercut videos featuring action stars such as Van Damme and Schwarzenegger, but they have nothing on Luke Skywalker, the Jedi with a kill count of over 369,000, and yes, that does include the Death Star. Anyone want to take a guess on how many more victims he’ll rack up in Episode VII?
Insignificant Fish Industries has created a 4.4 oz flask called the “First Shot” based on Han Solo’s DL-44 heavy blaster pistol. The silver muzzle is the flask’s cap and unscrews to be a 1.5oz shot glass. As of now, it is an unlicensed product, so it’s technically unavailable, but here’s to hoping it gets the go ahead for actual production sometime down the line.

The prop M203 used in the movie Scarface by Tony Montana is now available for auction. The launcher is a custom job, individually hand crafted by the studio prop department with an extra-large trigger guard and wider ribbing on the barrel than an actual M203. After Scarface, the prop M203 was used in several other productions, with Predator being a notable example.
The launcher is connected to a non-firing replica Colt AR15, identical to the live firing gun used in most of the gunfire sequences. Originally, an M16A1 was used, however Scarface cinematographer John Alonzo determined “that the AR15’s firing sequence could be timed to synchronize with the Arriflex cameras, which would result in elongating the duration of muzzle flashes seen on film.” Cool stuff.
The prop launcher/rifle combo is currently at $13,000, with a starting bid of $10,000, and an estimated ending bid of $20,000 – $30,000. A bit too rich for my blood, but an iconic bit of cinema history regardless.
