Rich Graham at it again. Beard, bullets, and two of his buddies:
This “drill” looks about as useful as it is interesting. Nothing much really happens in the video, but since the internet exists and is used by many as a place to stroke their ego we see Rich Graham convinced two of his buddies to stand ahead of where he’s shooting so he shoots past them at the “threat”. Some of us gasp at how unnecessary having two live human being stand in front of the line of fire for something like this is… others will comment or say to themselves “Hell yea brother”, because somehow this slight risk speaks to them… Rich Graham doesn’t conform This is all done in a very slow and controlled manner thankfully, but that also makes it less interesting.
I miss Tactical Jostle Rich Graham.
This movie looks typical:

[su_heading]Story by retired St. Lucie County Detective Scott Young[/su_heading]
[su_dropcap style=”light” size=”5″]W[/su_dropcap]orking as a deputy sheriff in south Florida during the late 1990s, my agency had just been issued stop-sticks. These sticks were about 3 feet long and had large spikes protruding all the way around. They were meant to be used as a stop-gap measure when a suspect was fleeing in a vehicle.
If an officer could get into position, the sticks were to be thrown in front of the tires as the car passed by. The weight of the car would bear down on the spikes, deflating the tires and ideally ending the chase safely. If I said everyone was eager to deploy them, that would be an understatement.
While working a series of burglaries in the most southern portion of our county, I heard dispatch state over the radio that the special investigations unit (SIU) was in pursuit of suspects who had fled during a drug raid. Although I was some distance away, there was a possibility the suspects would flee in my direction, so I kept my ears open. A short time later, dispatch advised that SIU was still in pursuit and heading my way. I responded to let them know my location and that I had stop-sticks. As the information unfolded over the radio and I listened intently, my excitement increased when the suspects chose an escape route with only one possible avenue: right past my location. I repositioned my marked patrol car to a more hidden location and stood near the roadside and waited.
I watched other traffic pass my location and soon heard the loud siren of the pursuing patrol car and the roar of the suspect’s engine as they neared. I saw a dark van careening around the corner with the marked patrol car right on its tail. I waited for the vehicle to get close, then threw the stop-sticks just before they passed. The sticks hit their mark, and not only the front tires, but the back as well. Excited, I ran to my patrol car, got in and advised dispatch that I hit the suspect’s vehicle. I activated my lights and siren and headed south. As the road wound to the right I saw the pursuing patrol car parked behind the suspect’s van, which was tilted rigidly to the right and on the side of the road. That is when I observed several individuals dressed in black with the letters DEA on their backs. “OMG!!” I had stop-sticked the DEA van.
Dispatch had communicated the description of the suspect’s vehicle on the SIU channel, but not my main channel. I stopped my patrol car about 100 feet way and turned off my lights and siren. To say they were upset would, again, be an understatement. They all were yelling something and with arms flailing wildly while motioning for me to come closer. I shook my head left and right to say no way! At that moment my sergeant’s voice came through over the radio and asked, “Well, did you get ’em?” Oh, I got them. My only reply was, “Sarge, I think you need to get down here right away.”
Several years later, as a task force officer assigned to the DEA, the driver of the van that day was assigned as my training officer. He trusted me with his life, but not the stop-sticks. ASJ
Yoooooo, it’s lit:
1:07 – I’ve never seen something so awkward in my entire life. My TIER 1 status is simply in mom’s basement keyboard ops so really what do I know though?
OMG I lost it when she did the little pinky caress. 10/10 would watch again. Did watch again.. and again. I’m surprised John Wick doesn’t do that move in the movie #PinkiesUpForWick amirite fellas?
Status checks. So hot right now.
Thoughts? You going to stick with doing the dumb old press check, or are you going to finesse the SIG maneuver with the T-REX hand curl and pinky caress?
These guys are pros. Watch and learn:
If Israel isn’t already doing this, I’d be shocked. Gotta keep the AR without one in the chamber though over there.
Thoughts? The only acceptable time to double one of your bros on your dirt bike?

Holy this is intense:
I would like to try this in person. Not having tried VR before, isn’t it kind of weird you’re not actually feeling the objects you pick up, but instead you’re just gripping those weird control wants? Or is it that immersive that your brain is fooled? Im really surprised they haven’t done a Nintendo powerglove style thing you just wear, instead of these handheld controllers.
I case you didn’t notice, those are the freddiew guys (who used to do the cool videos with special effects). I had no idea they were VR programming geniuses.

2 hours, but good so far:
I figured more than a few of you guys would want to watch this if you haven’t already heard it’s up.
2:34 + 15:25 – So he doesn’t work for the NRA? *scratches head* I don’t get it. He has been doing the NOIR show on NRATV for years now. Is this some technicality because maybe he works for the marketing company who the NRA hired?
Oh man… I sense a plastic wrap ban coming to the UK soon:
This same lil creep also made a sharp knife out of spaghetti, then after he tested it he cooked it and ate it.
I see what you’re trying to do Hornady. Here’s a playlist of all 5 episodes that are out right now:
I’ll let it slide, but it’s sneaky nonetheless. Dudes are going to be like “WeRe TheRe No AmEriCaN gIrLs To Do ThiS JOb?”… sure she’s likable, but I asked myself the same question. Yoooo the comments on the first video are funny as expected. The comments range from the standard m’lady ones, to outrage they would use a model to try and sell reloading supplies and equipment.
You might recognize Rosie from the 1987 Hot Shots Calendar. haha just kidding, she’s been in a few of the current ones, but I think she has mainly retired from that. She’s only 27 according to wikipedia, but in model years that’s like 490.
