If you ever get in a pinch, this ancient Egyptian technology might help you out. From Youtuber crypticCRICKET.
Pay attention. There will not be a quiz at the end. This could save your life one day. From youtuber Thomas Kim.
What would you do if you were minding your own business in the comfort of your own home and a machete-wielding maniac started kicking in your door?
If you don’t have a firearm you’d likely panic, pick up the phone, and hope that 9-1-1 can get a police officer to your house in the next 15 seconds.
If you are an armed homeowner, however, you’ve not only given yourself a fighting chance, but you have the distinct advantage of being on your own turf and capable of dispatching the threat with near instantaneous results.
This is exactly the scenario James Cvengros was presented with recently when his insane neighbor Twain Thomas started screaming and becoming violent in the hallway of the apartment building in which Cvengros lives. Cvengros turned on a camera and pointed it at his front door just in case. As you’ll see in the video below, Thomas can be heard causing quite a ruckus outside, prompting Cvengros to take a look. He quickly closed and locked his door and waited.
Sure enough, a few seconds later Twain Thomas’ foot can be seen coming through his front door, at which point Cvengros warns that he has a gun. The would-be attacker, with machete in hand, would not be deterred.
As he comes through the door Cvengros discharges three bullets into Thomas’ chest.
In the aftermath of the shooting Twain Thomas can be heard gurgling and writhing in pain. A fitting result for someone who intended to do harm to the two innocent people who were doing nothing more than spending an evening at home.
Had there been no firearm in this home things could have gone a totally different direction and it’s quite possible the Cvengros, his wife, as well as Thomas’ partner with whom he was arguing could all be dead.
In the right hands, guns save lives. They are the great equalizer.
No further evidence is necessary.
Update: Twain Thomas survived his wounds and has been charged with two counts of attempted murder, aggravated battery and aggravated burglary.

The title is pretty self explanatory. Here is the video my buddy and I captured while the chopper came in for an emergency landing in the Target parking lot in Kemah, Texas. We were contacted by all major news agencies and the video went out across the country. No one was hurt during the incident. Apparently the chopper will be in the parking lot until tomorrow mourning. Full Video attached:
As some of you may know the ATF issued a public letter on Friday declaring that shouldering a pistol equipped with Sig Brace “redesigned” the firearm into a short barreled rifle. Thus making it illegal to shoulder a perfectly legal to purchase and own AR or AK pistol accessory. Here is the full open letter.
For those of you who are not familiar with the Sig Brace you can find more info. in the video below.
I guess these nifty little Sig Braces were cutting into the ATF’s SBR tax stamp revenue. What a shame. Here’s an interesting take on the entire situation as seen through the eyes of YouTuber “therealTrippleB“
BREAKING PRESS RELEASE FROM SIG SAUER. Sig Sauer intends to challenge this declaration.
NEWINGTON, N.H. (January 21, 2015)—SIG SAUER, Inc., has issued the following statement about the recent opinion by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) in regard to the SB15 and SBX pistol stabilizing braces.
“As reaffirmed in an Open Letter by ATF’s Firearms and Ammunition Technology Division dated January 16, 2015, the Pistol Stabilizing Brace (SB15 and SBX) is legal to own, legal to purchase, and legal to install on a pistol. SIG SAUER® believes that the PSB improves the single-handed shooting performance of buffer tube equipped pistols, and offers the product both as an accessory and pre-installed on a number of pistols.
“The Open Letter goes further to rescind a previous private letter regarding the ‘intent’ of the user of the pistol stabilizing brace. In the letter of January 16, 2015, ATF opines that a person’s actual use of the product as a shoulder stock can change the legal classification of the product. However, the Open Letter explicitly states: “ATF hereby confirms that if used as designed—to assist shooters in stabilizing a handgun while shooting with a single hand—the device is not considered a shoulder stock and therefore may be attached to a handgun without making a NFA firearm.”
“We question ATF’s reversal in position that the classification of the brace may be altered by its use. We are reviewing the legal precedents and justification for this position, and will address our concerns with ATF in the near future.
“We will vigorously defend the classification of all of our products and our consumers’ right to use them in accordance with the law. If we find that the open letter opinion is outside the scope of the law, we will seek further review.”
I’ve embedded one of many of my favorite videos from youtube channel “vonhelmet”. The channel is maintained by former Navy Seal, Rich Graham of www.tridentfitness.net. His program can train individuals to become what Graham calls Full Spectrum Warriors or FSW. In this video Graham demonstrates one handed shooting drills as well as one handed transition techniques. If you have a minute check out www.tridentfitness.net I wish there was a program like this in my AO. Hope y’all enjoy. Don’t try this at home.
