Is The Indestructible Hockey Puck Bullet Proof?

Adamantium aside, the hockey puck is the strongest material on Earth. That’s only a little bit of an exaggeration since we’ve seen it survive liquid nitrogen, take on the vaunted red hot nickel ball and even put up a respectable fight against thermite. But is the puck bulletproof? Should we just wear hockey puck bulletproof vests now?


BOOMco's New Breakflip Looks Like A Sawed-Off Shotgun

Although it’s apparently been hard to keep the new models a secret, Mattel continues to expand its BOOMco line by leaps and bounds. The folks at Blaster Labs first spotted the new BOOMco Breakflip while it was still just a sketch at Mattel’s offices, but official product shots and info have apparently been leaked by Amazon.


Slow-Motion Footage Of Double-Barrelled Pistols Firing Bullets Is Crazy

Video: Watch as we slow down time to see this guy fire off 20 bullets in just 1.5 seconds from two double-barrelled pistols. It’s a ballistics ballet that looks almost unreal at certain angles. The top-down look of the guns firing is especially cool to see, like a first-person shooter video game view only in real life.


Nerf Hid A Surprisingly Capable Dart Gun In A Fashion Accessory

The Hunger Games’ Katniss Everdeen helped reinforce the idea that young women don’t have to wait for a knight in shining armour to come and rescue them; they can instead pick up a weapon and be the hero themselves. But instead of reaching for a bow and arrow, Nerf’s Rebelle line wants them to reach for its new Secret Shot that hides a four-shot blaster inside a useless, but arguably fashionable, accessory.


New Legal Case Supports 3D-Printed Gun Blueprints Under Free Speech

It’s three years since the files to 3D-print a gun were published online by Cody Wilson. Soon after he received a letter from the US State Department demanding the files be removed from the internet — and now he’s fighting that under the argument of free speech.


A Bass Pro Shop In A Pyramid Is Surely A Sign That The World Is Ending

How does a city reuse a former basketball arena when the team moves to new digs across town? And what if, hypothetically, that arena is shaped like a pyramid? If you’re Memphis, you fill it with a 50,000 square metre Bass Pro Shop, then sit back and wait for the apocalypse to arrive.


Combat Tech Is Turning Baltimore Into A Paramilitary Zone

In response to rioting and violent protests in Baltimore over the death of Freddie Grey, the US National Guard was deployed for riot control in Maryland for the first time since the 1960s race riots. Some 500 troops patrol the city, clad in body armour, with automatic rifles strapped across their chests.


What It Feels Like To Shoot With The US Military's Experimental Smart Scope

You’ve probably never fired an M4 carbine. Until a couple weeks ago, I hadn’t either. But at a recent DARPA demo day, I loaded a magazine (also a first for me), snuggled up to the deadly assault rifle, and looked through one of the most technologically advanced smart scopes ever built. Then I pulled the trigger.


I Can Hear The Sound Of Artillery Firing In This Photo Of A Howitzer

I’m not a gun nut, but I love badass machines and this photo of US Marines firing a howling M777 Howitzer is mechanical awesomeness dripping with badassery. I can almost hear the thumping blast of the Howitzer firing from just looking at the picture. It’s, yep, pretty badass.


You Don't Know Turkey About Wild Turkeys

Did you know that turkeys kill rattlesnakes? Excuse me for a little bit of a Ben Franklin moment, but I’m going to tell you about one of the most interesting wild animals that’s native to North America and what it’s like tracking them in the wild.
