Palmetto State Armory – Alien-51 AR-15 Stripped Lower Receiver

Monday, July 15th, 2019

Capitalizing on the upcoming ‘Area 51 Raid’ that has become the subject of the latest 15 minutes of online amusement, Palmetto State Armory is offering pre-orders for their latest ‘meme’ lower, the “Alien-51”. Built to the same MilSpec standard as PSA’s other lowers, the “Alien-15” will feature a rollmark with the typical depiction of the ‘Grey’ extraterrestrial, complete with raygun in hand. The selector switch will be marked: ‘NO ENTRY’ – Safe, ‘STORM 51’ – Fire, and ‘RETREAT’ – Full Auto. PSA is taking orders through July 21, and will start shipping 4-6 weeks after that. They also claim this is the only time they’re offering the “Alien-51”, so if you’re interested, jump on it while you have the chance.


PSA – Poop Flinging Gremlins AR-15 Lower Receiver

Tuesday, July 17th, 2018

About a decade couple months ago, an irate Arfcom poster made their displeasure with Palmetto State Armory’s business practices known through a series of posts in a thread, the high of which was reached when said poster used the phrase “poop flinging gremlins”, leveled presumably at a number of other posters in the thread.

PSA decided to roll with the phrase, and later came out with a lower inspired by that post. It features Spike from Gremlins, poo in hand, engraved on the magwell, and selector switch markings labeled: ‘No Poop’, ‘Poop’, and ‘Fling Poop’. Plus, the S/N is prefaced with the letters POOP.

This lower is currently available for purchase from PSA (in-stock at the time of writing), and is sure to go fairly quick, so get one for yourself while you can.


Edit: As pointed out by reader comment, the “poop flinging gremlins” comment wasn’t made over a decade ago, but rather this past May. The poster’s join date was confused for the post date, hence the mistake. The article above has been corrected to reflect this information.

Suppressors Legal In Washington

Tuesday, April 12th, 2011

The Governor of Washington State, Chris Gregoire, signed HB 1016 into law just yesterday. This effectively allows gun owners to both own and use suppressors with their firearms. While suppressors weren’t illegal to own in Washington State before the bill was passed, using them with a firearm was considered a gross misdemeanor crime. Now, its just as legal to shoot using a suppressor within the state line as it is to own one. The bill will take effect 90 days after adjournment.

Wow, allowing someone to own a suppressor, but not to shoot with it within the same state? Why did it take this long for this bill to exist? Still, better late than never.

Thanks to NRA-ILA for the original story.

Thursday, March 31st, 2011

Just a quick reminder that tomorrow is Lendy’s Wings For Warriors sponsored by Mission First Tactical.

The location is Lendy’s, 1581 General Booth Boulevard, in Virginia Beach, Virginia from 1400 to 1800. For $20, you can enjoy all-you-can-eat wings, door prizes, and events. If you aren’t in the area, but would still like to contribute to the Wounded EOD Warrior Foundation, then you can buy a Lendy’s Wings For Warriors t-shirt. I’ll be there, and I hope to see plenty of people in attendance.

Edit: I wasn’t able to attend. Boo. Still, from what I hear the event was a success!

Mission First Tactical is once again helping to raise money for the Wounded EOD Warrior Foundation by sponsoring the 2nd Annual Lendy’s Wings for Warriors. For $20, in addition to getting a totally sweet t-shirt, you are also donating to a worthy cause. Seems like a win-win to me. To place an order, send an e-mail to amber@missionfirsttactical.com.

Magpul PTS Masada ACR Mistake

Saturday, February 12th, 2011

In my previous article WOLF’s Den, I claimed in the description that the Magpul PTS Masada ACR was made by ARES Airsoft, drawing this information from the video itself. In the comments section, however, Spartan Imports was kind enough to point an error in this, stating that Magpul PTS fully manufactures this particular airsoft rifle, and ARES Airsoft does not. In addition, Magpul PTS does not want association with ARES Airsoft. This particular bit of misinformation is widely spread, and I thank Spartan Imports for the correction.

If you are interested in purchasing a Magpul PTS Masada ACR you can find a dealer on spartanimports.com where you’ll also find a variety of other airsoft weaponry and accessories.
