Shooters

No, its not a bar. Shooters is a restaurant in Rifle, Colorado that encourages patrons to bring their guns inside. In fact the waitresses are armed and the business hosts $75 conceal carry classes. I'd advise leaving a tip!

Taking A Shot At Teaching

image
A 73 year old man teaching a conceal carry class in Ohio made the cardinal mistake when handling a firearm. He thought the gun was empty and dry fired it without checking. The bullet that was, of course, in the gun ricocheted off a metal desk and struck a man taking the class. Not a class to teach by negative example.

Revolver Camera

Paul once posted about a camera that looked like a gun. This does that one better. It's a camera AND a gun. Pull the trigger and it simultaneously takes a picture of and shoots a bullet at whomever you're aiming the gun at. It was created and used in the late 1930s in New York City. [via petapixel]

Shotgun Tazer


A shotgun shell that is a self contained tazer has been in development for several years and is now being offered to law enforcement for use. There is a specialty Mossburg shotgun that can be bought with the shells but they can be fired from a standard shotgun as well. Non-lethal force that can be used at a greater distance than regular tazers, this could be safer for both cops and criminals. Besides, its a neat piece of tech. For more info go here.
