Shook Guns Part 11

Shook Guns Part 11:
Random Summer Enhancements & Developments

Being the AZ correspondent for C2D means being pretty fucking miserable in summer. But despite 3 months of 100-115 degree days, I've managed to stay pretty active shooting-wise. And the more I shoot, the more I try new gear and tweek existing equipment. So here's some of the new things I've been playing with this summer....

Kahr P380 (actual size shown):

I've always wanted one of these to replace the ratty (& unreliable) Keltec P3AT I've had since 2003, but the price is ridiculous.
So when my shop bought this used one at a crazy low price I had to scoop it up.

My ONLY complaint is the lack of a pocket clip like my Keltec had...I'm still searching for the right holster so that I'll actually carry it.

Surefire 60 round AR15 Magazine:

I've been waiting for these to hit the streets since January, so naturally I snagged the first one I came across. Utilizing a quad-stack design, it holds 60rds of 5.56mm without adding too much length over a standard USGI 30rd mag (shown for comparison)

It has hiccupped a few times, so it's not 100% reliable, but when it runs it's awesome.

EXO/NiB-X Finish:

WMD Guns out of Florida is now offering this refinishing service on many pistols and AR components. It is a Nickle-Boron coating that is slick to the touch, but requires no lubrication (supposedly...)

I had this G19 done to test it out, and have since sent a few more pieces out. Also upgraded on both of my carry guns are the new Trijicon HD night sights, with a much more visible front post during daytime use.

Rounding it out is the Raven Concealment Holster (this one accomodates a pistol-mounted light and extended/threaded barrel), which are pricy and take FOREVER to get, but seem to be worth the hassle. I liked this one so much I got another one immediately after....

Satanic SBR Upgrades:

This gun is damn-near perfect, so I rarely chance much on it. However, to shave weight, it is now sporting a Magpul CTR stock, Daniel Defense front & rear sights, and an Aimpoint T1 Micro on a DD Mount (my new favorite optic). Also upgraded the LED on the Surefire Scout Light to the new K2XC head (=BRIGHT!)

SCAR Mods:

There are very few aftermarket mods for the SCAR rifles, but I've finally gotten them both set up how I like them....

I'm now running a T1 Micro on the SCAR-16 as well, and using a Streamlight TLR-1S mounted over the barrel on the PWS Rail Extension. Everything else is the same as before.

The SCAR-17 finally has its own optic, the Trijicon ACOG TA11J-308. A perfect optic for this rifle. Also recently installed the Branham Tactical Rail Extension; much shorter than the PWS rail on my 16, but just enough extra length to cover the gas block. The sling is the Blue Force Gear Vickers Sling, which I swap between the 2.

and FINALLY, due to the above mods...I was comfortable enough to try the SCAR-17 out at a local match. It went pretty well, all things considered. Most importantly: the gun runs like a champ.



The Rum Diary - Hunter S Thompson

We here at C2D are epic supporters of anything and everything Hunter S Thompson. So its no surprise that we are pissing our pants in anticipation of this novel made into a film. Hunter was 22 when he wrote this one back in the mid 60s, and if you have not read it - god damn it - you better do it ASAP. I mean, Jesus, you serious?? Like, read it this weekend!!

Get Ready For Irene

Seriously.   Pack some food.  Store up some bottled water.   Stockpile some ammo.  Map out the key loot spots.  Get batteries so you can listen to tunes, or better yet, a generator so you can put on that floating block party.   And most importantly, build up them canoe skills.

I'm very thrilled that this documentary is finally out in theaters. Even if you don't care about auto racing, check this one out - it's an amazing story. Really looking forward to seeing it - a few times. Was on Houston over the weekend and walked passed the premiere - they had 2 of the F1 cars out on the street. Seeing these upclose makes you realize just how nutty one has to be to go 200+ mph in one. Amazing.


paperbikes v2 - fixed gear - now available

paperbikes v2 is available now at our online store for just a buck. This one is a fixed gear ride. Check out the aggressive headtube angle, might feel twitchy at first, but you'll get used to it. Model comes with both drop and riser bars and 2 stems, so you'll be able to easily swap the bars depending on your mood.

Jigga and Kanye

Dope track. Plus I love what they done to the Maybach. Thumbs up.


Low and tiny


Let Me Just Say...

Fuck the MTA
Rant start:
For the last 3 weeks, A/C train service weekday mornings has been disrupted by something 4 out of 5 days of the week.    Disrupted meaning, instead of getting to work 5 -10 minutes late as usual, I am now showing up 30-40 minutes late.   And whatever they tell you, "take the C local downstairs, it will be faster" you can rest assured that you will be stuck in the tunnel watching 3 A trains pass you, including the one the conductor just told you to exit.   Now, I can see this happening, maybe once a month.   And I can also see this happening at night, weekends, off hours, etc...     But not at the peak rush hour.    And not this often.   Commute has been fine for years, so if there is signal problems, fix the fuckin signal and get on with it already.    

I'm just saying, I'm pretty sure the MTA is in league with satan.
Somehow, this picture relates
