Nerf's New See-Through Blasters Reveal How Their Firing Mechanisms Work

It looks like Nerf is the latest brand to find it hard to keep its Comic-Con reveals a secret. Yesterday it announced a pair of blasters from a new Doomlands line featuring clear plastic housings that make their firing mechanisms visible so you’ll finally know exactly how those darts get launched.


Making A Meat Cleaver From A Circular Saw Blade

Video: John Heisz is an absolute master at repurposing old things into awesome and beautiful knives and tools. Here he is carving a meat cleaver from an old circular saw blade. The blade on blade cutting action is spectacular, the sanding of the knife is always fun to see and the making of the handle is way more complicated than I thought.


Making A Knife From A Chunk Of Concrete And An Old Shovel

Fashioning beautiful weapons from found objects is always so fascinating to see. How does a person look at a chunk of concrete and see an elaborately detailed knife handle? How can we turn a piece of a shovel into a really sharp knife? Watch John Heisz work his magic below. There are a lot of satisfying noises that go with sawing things down.


The First BOOMco Halo Blasters Will Be San Diego Comic-Con Exclusives

We got our first hands-on with Mattel’s new BOOMco Halo-themed blasters back at Toy Fair, but it looks like the first official opportunity for everyone to get their hands on the new additions to the line will be at the San Diego Comic-Con next month.


In Modern Wars, What Happens To Captured Weapons?

For the U.S. Army, it depends on the type of weapons, and what our needs are.


Shattering And Then Reforging The Sword From Lord Of The Rings

Video: Aragorn’s sword the Narsil had been famously shattered into pieces before the Lord of the Rings trilogy and was then reforged from the shards into the Anduril by the Elves in the last movie. Man At Arms: Reforged recreates that in real life by building the Narsil and then breaking the sword (it wasn’t tempered after heat treating) only to reforge it into the Anduril.


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.


Behold The M1 Abrams Tank Blasting Its Cannon Like A Fire Beast

It’s not only the fire breathing blast that’s cool in this photo of a M1 Abrams firing its 120mm smoothbore cannon, it’s also the dirt rising from the ground and the dust that surrounds the tank like a forcefield. There is so much power in one picture.


Dart-Filled Clips Keep BOOMco's Dynamag Blasting Shot After Shot

When the Colt revolver was introduced it made the antiquated musket instantly obsolete because it could quickly fire six shots in a row without having to reload. So you can think of BOOMco’s new Dynamag as kind of like the Colt revolver of the dart blaster world because it uses BOOMco’s clever clip system to allow you to fire shot after shot as quickly as you can cock and pull the trigger.


DIY Retractable 'Predator' Blades Are Lethal And Badass

Man at Arms: Reforged just showed off their latest movie weapon badassery and this time they recreated the retractable wrist blades from Predator. The design is especially slick because they made the entire gauntlet that Predators wear on their wrist and it can quickly shoot out with one motion.
