Icon Variant & Airframe Ghost Helmets
Overview of Icon Carbon Ghost Variant Helmet
Variant Ghost Carbon Helmet For assignments off the official record, we offer the Ghost Carbon Variant. Weve taken the standard Variants cross-terrain functionality and added a hand-laid carbon fiber shell, translucent supervents, and endurance yellow tinted Optics shield - all finished with our Rubatone tactile coating. We can neither confirm nor deny the specifics of any mission involving the Variant Ghost Carbon. Variant Helmet Its a matter of survival. In an unforgiving maze of gravelstrewn corners and malevolent steel, a rider needs protection, vision and comfort. The call to arms has been answered. Introducing the ICON Variant helmet. The wind tunnel-refined shell, executed in a Fiberglass/Dyneema/Carbon matrix, forms a solid first line of defense. Internally, a dual-density EPS core provides critical Energy Management which reduces transmitted impact forces. Of course safety is best maintained by avoiding the crash altogether. To this end, the Variant features a reshaped eyeport which provides enhanced peripheral vision. The Variants unique visor system also contributes to improved vision. When properly designed, such as on the Variant, the visor can help block bright sunlight while producing minimal lift characteristics. Couple this with our Fog-Free coating and it is obvious why the vision aspects of the Variant are superior. Another important method of increasing safety is to reduce rider fatigue. Excessive heat buildup can result in both discomfort and distraction. Neither is a good situation. The Variants extensive venting system works at all speeds, providing necessary airflow to the helmet interior. The airflow works in conjunction with the wicking Hydradry liner to effectively reduce heat buildup. Variant Features All world standard, meets or exceeds the following: dot fmvss 218 (us), ece 22-05 (europe), sai as1698 (australia) & sg (japan) safety and testing standards. Fiberglass/dyneema/carbon fiber shell Long oval headform Wind tunnel tested and refined Anti-lift visor to reduce glare Multiple oversized intake and exhaust ports Molded eps nose reduces shield fogging Quick-change fog-free shield Fully removable/washable hydradry interior Rear spoiler for reduced helmet buffeting

Grayguns P30 trigger pefection
This is the Grayguns trigger upgrade for the HK P30 V1 Light LEM. It is one of, if not the best trigger I've ever felt on a handgun, especially a non-1911.
It's called the Heckler & Koch Reduced Reset Carry Perfection Package on their website. They delivered as promised.
Amazing work from an easy to deal with company, highly recommended.

How much weight should I be squatting to jump higher?
Download our free training ebook:
Jerea6 is a YouTube viewer and he says, Dear Jacob, I'm wondering how much weight I need to be lifting, I am 5'7 and weigh about 150 right now, pretty much all muscle. (Awesome) I know that in your workout it says that you need enough weight to do only eight reps and explode, but that is a lot of weight, especially dead lifting, any suggestions?
So how much weight do you need to be lifting? Well how much weight does anyone need to be lifting? Well this is a great question so let's go right into it. Now, lifting weights helps you get stronger, getting stronger allows you to overcome your own body weight easier and thus faster. Just think if you weighed fifty pounds, how much easier it would be, you would feel like a feather, and you could actually move faster. Just like if this was a bowling ball and I tried to throw it, I couldn't throw it very far, why? Because the strength to resistance ratio would be pretty high, but since it is a basketball or if I were super-duper strong and it was a bowling ball, it's easy, it's light to throw so I can get the high velocity very fast. So that's why it's important to be strong.
So how much weight should you be lifting? Probably as much as possible, yes there is a point of diminishing returns. What that means is there is a point where you stop increasing your vertical even if you are getting stronger, because that strength doesn't help you move any faster. Just like this basketball, there is probably only a certain amount of strength that it takes so then I need to start working on my actual technique and accelerating faster. There comes a point where more strength isn't going to help me move it faster because I have enough. The same thing with jumping higher, now with one caveat, very few people ever reach that point of diminishing returns with their strength. Some people get, yes some reduced returns but they don't just stop gaining. Few people are so strong that no longer can they benefit from getting stronger.
So with that as an introduction, how much weight should you be lifting when you are training? Well, you should be lifting enough weight that it challenges you to functional hyper trophy, so what that means is if you are lifting very light weight it's not going to challenge your muscles to the point of super compensation. Super compensation means that your body is not going to say dang this is something we need to get stronger at, because the weight is so light. That is why walking doesn't make you stronger, because it's not very much resistance.
So as a general rule, as a general rule, don't go above eight reps, if you can do it more than eight times, you are starting to get to a point where you are not challenging yourself to get stronger; you are actually challenging your endurance, your anaerobic endurance. So it's just a different type of super compensatory response. You want the strength response, not the endurance response.
That is why we say in general don't go over eight reps. Yeah you can get stronger with two reps, one rep, five reps, maybe even ten, but as a general rule we stick people around eight. Don't go over eight, so if you can do it more than eight, add weight. I hate to say to somebody, hey you're 150 lbs. and you need to do this weight so many times, because it's just not the case. What you need to do is find a weight you can do no more than eight times, if you can do it more add weight until you can't do it more than eight times.
So that's how it goes for getting stronger. So you kind of obey those rules and understand that there is no given weight based on your size and based on the fact that you are all muscle and all that. So you just need to continue to be getting stronger. Some people say, in order to jump 40 you need to jump two times your body weight. Well that is not necessarily true, every individual is different, why? Because people's muscle fibers are different types, people's technique, peoples limb lengths, there are lots of different variants.
There are people who can't even squat their body weight and can jump pretty well, and who only squat 1.5 of their body weight and jump very well, that's because there are a lot of variables. There is also another thing to consider, is even if you can squat say 300 lbs. what is important is how much of your strength you can use during your vertical leap, you see a vertical leap only last about .3 seconds. So you only have a very slight amount of time to recruit and use muscle fiber in order to create acceleration and reach a high velocity, I know that is a big mouth full.

Zeroing the AK with Scope
Taking 4 shots with the GP/WASR-10/63 AKM 7.62x39, at a 3x4 inch target in front of a reduced size torso target, 150 yards downrange; wind was a bit tricky.
During the winter, the scope mount would torque in the cold, so every time i would try to hit a target, the windage would be way off. So now that it is Spring, I should be able to use the mount and scope with good consistency.
All Strokes - The Seven Competitive Turns
It's easy to break turns down into two forms, open turns, and flip turns. We wish it was that easy, but competitive swimmers will need to know all seven of the competitive turns.
Why do it:
Unless you're only going to swim freestyle, then mastering all the turns will allow you to compete in Individual Medley races, legally.
How to do it:
We'll just be quickly showing all the turns in this video. More detailed how to's are found at our website.
1 - Butterfly-to-Butterfly - Approach the wall swimming butterfly, perform an open turn, and leave the wall on your stomach for your dolphin kicks.
2 - Butterfly-to-Backstroke - Approach the wall swimming butterfly, perform an open turn directly over to your back, pushing off on your back for your dolphin kicks.
3 - Backstroke-to-Backstroke - Approach the wall swimming backstroke. One stroke prior to reaching the wall, roll over toward your stomach and perform a flip turn. Leave the wall on your back for your dolphin kicks.
4 - Backstroke-to-Breaststroke - This turn actually has a few variations, we'll quickly show two. Approach the wall swimming backstroke, on your last stroke, reach and touch the wall while tilting toward your side, perform a flip turn and push off rotated toward your stomach for breaststroke. A simpler option is to swim in backstroke, reach for the wall while still on your back, perform an open turn, and push off on your stomach.
5 - Breaststroke-to-Breaststroke - Approach the wall swimming breaststroke, perform an open turn, and leave the wall on your stomach for your breaststroke underwater pullout.
6 - Breaststroke-to-Freestyle - Approach the wall swimming breaststroke, perform an open turn, leave the wall on your side or stomach for your dolphin kicks and the freestyle breakout.
7 - Freestyle-to-Freestyle - Approach the wall swimming freestyle, perform a flip turn, and leave the wall on your side or stomach for your dolphin kicks and freestyle breakout.
How to do it really well (the fine points):
Treat each turn as it's own skill. Don't assume that understanding the open turn, or flip turn will give you the knowledge necessary to do all of these turns quickly. Also know the rules, especially involving backstroke and breaststroke turns. In backstroke-to-breaststroke transition turns, you MUST touch the wall while still on your back, and you MUST leave the wall while rotated more toward your stomach.
Again, these are just the basics, much more detailed explanations are available at our website.

Seems like everyone is making a 1911 pistol of some kind these days. Unless you buy a custom gun built be a gunsmith, you are most likely going to get something right off the assembly line. These guns should work and have most likely been tested for function and whatever criteria the factory has for quality. However it will most likely not be as refined as if you bought it from a custom gun maker.
So in this video(s) I will show you a couple of very simple things you can do to your 1911 to clean it up and give it a more smoother action and perhaps a lighter trigger pull.
DISCLAIMER: By modifying your pistol from factory specs, you may be opening yourself up to some liability so please do it at your own risk. I do not take responsibility in your actions. This video is for informational purposes only and I assume no risk.
The M1911 is a single-action, semi-automatic, magazine-fed, recoil-operated pistol chambered for the .45 ACP cartridge, which served as the standard-issue sidearm for the United States Armed Forces from 1911 to 1985. It was first used in later stages of the Philippine-American War, and was widely used in World War I, World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. The M1911 is still carried by some U.S. forces. Its formal designation as of 1940 was Automatic Pistol, Caliber .45, M1911 for the original Model of 1911 or Automatic Pistol, Caliber .45, M1911A1 for the M1911A1, adopted in 1924. The designation changed to Pistol, Caliber .45, Automatic, M1911A1 in the Vietnam era. In total, the United States procured around 2.7 million M1911 and M1911A1 pistols in military contracts during its service life. The M1911 was replaced by the 9mm Beretta M9 pistol as the standard U.S. sidearm in the early 1990s, but due to its popularity among users, it has not been completely phased out. Modernized derivative variants of the M1911 are still in use by some units of the U.S. Army Special Forces, the U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine Corps.
Designed by John Browning, the M1911 is the best-known of his designs to use the short recoil principle in its basic design. The pistol was widely copied, and this operating system rose to become the preeminent type of the 20th century and of nearly all modern centerfire pistols. It is popular with civilian shooters in competitive events such as USPSA, IDPA, International Practical Shooting Confederation, and Bullseye shooting. Compact variants are popular civilian concealed carry weapons, because of the design's inherent slim width and the power of the .45 ACP cartridge
[SHOT Show 2019] A Rifle that Shoots...Arrows? The Traditions Crackshot XBR
From TFB's own Rusty S.:
New for 2019, The Crackshot XBR Arrow Firing Rifle, Ironically from Traditions firearms, is indeed a rifle that fires arrows. The Firebolt arrows are loaded onto a 27-caliber 21 tube inside of a 22 outer sleeve. The user then breaks the action and inserts a .27 caliber Powerload (What AC/DC would otherwise call a blank), closes the action, and cocks the hammer. The Crackshot is then ready to fire an arrow with your choice of tip at 385fps, and has a lethal range of 70 yards.
According to Traditions, it has 94 ft-lbs of energy at 30 yards. If dealing with yard pests, the Crackshot won't rustle too many jimmies by being noisy. It comes in at only 80 Decibels when fired. Not hunting with arrows? No problem. The Crackshot also ships with a 16.5 .22lr barrel as well.
The arrow shaft is hollow up to just before the broadhead. According to Traditions, this allows the arrow to be pulled from the front (students of physics will disagree) rather than be pushed from the rear, allowing for flatter shooting.
The Crackshot that I handled at SHOT was crazy lightweight at just over 4lbs in both configurations, with a decent trigger. Arrows slid easily yet securely onto the tube. The ATF reportedly took a bit of time to decide what the Crackshot was. They are defining it as a muzzleloader for now. Traditions has been reaching out to agencies responsible for hunting regulations in each state in order to better determine the legal definition of the Crackshot for hunting purposes (muzzleloader, archery, short range, etc).
It will be available in black for $449 or Kryptec Highlander reduced camo for $499. All Crackshots will come with a Traditions 4x32 scope already mounted on the upper, as well as 3 firebolt arrows. Extra Firebolt arrows will go for $29.95 for a 6-pack, and the Powerloads will go for $24.95 per 100. For more information, please visit Traditions Performance Firearms.

Shooting Sig Sauer P250 .45ACP
MAF72511 Shootin a sig sauer p250. A sweet .45acp choice.
The Sig Sauer P250 is a semi-automatic pistol made by J.P. Sauer & Sohn, and Sig Sauer of Exeter, New Hampshire. The P250 chambered in 9x19mm Parabellum was introduced in the North American market on November 7, 2007 followed by the .45 ACP compact model at SHOT Show 2008 in February. SIG P250s chambered in .357 SIG, .40 S&W, and .45 ACP have been slowly made available, with the final caliber to be made available in late 2009.
Like other SIG SAUER pistols, the P250 pistol is a short recoil operated, locked breech pistol. It uses the typical SIG-Sauer cam-operated barrel, which locks into the ejection port on the slide.
A key feature of the pistol is its modular design. The main module of the P250 is an internal stainless steel frame fire control unit which consist of the integrated fire control group (trigger, hammer and all necessary linkage and springs), ambidextrous slide release (one on each side of the pistol), ejector and 4 slide rails. This steel receiver unit is used in every P250 grip module, top end and chambering combination and is inserted into the grip frame module and held in place by the axis pin of the disassembly lever. The firearm's serial number is on the fire control unit instead of the grip module. The fire control unit allows the operator to interchange differently sized slide assembly or top end modules and polymer grip frame modules and trigger shoes and (limited) chambering conversions to adapt the gun to the individual user and address different needs.
The P250 was designed to be ambidextrous in handling sporting a ambidextrous slide catch lever and user reversible magazine catch. All other operating controls are designed so they can be operated from either side. The firearm can be field stripped with no tools.
The full-size and compact grip modules feature an integral Picatinny rail mounting-bracket at the lower forward edge of the module to allow the mounting of laser sights, tactical lights, and other accessories. Before the introduction of the Picatinny rail SIG used a differing Rail Integration System on the P250 Compact.
The P250 pistol is offered in 3 glass reinforced polymer grip module sizes, small, medium, and large, in each of the full-sized, compact, and subcompact P250 variants.
The pistol top ends also come in full-sized, compact, and subcompact variants that will fit the correspondingly sized grip modules. Every chambering can be converted by the user with a caliber exchange kit. The 9x19mm Parabellum, .40 S&W, and .357 SIG chamberings share their polymer grip frame modules and this offers the possibility to interchange these 3 chamberings by swapping the top end consisting of the slide, recoil spring assembly, barrel and the box magazine. Due to the significantly larger external dimensions of the .45 ACP cartridge compared to the other P250 chambering options, the .45 ACP chambering uses slightly wider .45 ACP specific polymer grip modules with an enlarged magazine well.
The manufacturer offers caliber exchange kits or Caliber X-Change kits consisting of a slide, recoil assembly, barrel, box magazine and grip module in the varying frame sizes, grip module sizes and chambering variants in which the P250 pistol is offered. These kits enable a user to switch between the various P250 configurations without the use of tools.
The P250 has no manual safeties to promote instant readiness. Instead of manual safeties an automated firing pin safety ensures safe carrying of the weapon whilst preventing accidental discharges if the gun is dropped or roughly handled.
The trigger is a self-decocking DAO trigger system with spurless and recessed hammer. The trigger system has a pull weight of about 5.5 lbf (3.9 kgf, 38 N) and will not reset until completely released.
The P250 trigger is available in standard or short configurations meaning two user interchangeable trigger shoe variants are offered. The short reduced reach trigger shoe configuration can be reached and operated better by users with relatively short fingers.
The P250 is available with a 3.60 in (91.4 mm), 3.86 in (98.0 mm), or 4.7 in (119.4 mm) barrel depending on the size (sub compact, compact, or full-sized, respectively).
The pistol feeds from metal detachable box magazines with a 6 round to 17 round magazine capacity, depending on chambering and pistol size. The butt plates at the bottom of the magazines are made of polymer. The magazines of the early P250 pistols do however not fit in later produced pistols due to technical changes.
The P250 comes with 3-dot combat-type iron sights of which the front sight element can be drifted to the left or right in its dovetail to adjust for windage. There are three rear sight heights and six front sight heights available to adjust for elevation. Self-luminous tritium powered SIGLITE Night Sights in differing heights are optional. SIGLITE sights are now standard on the US versions of the P250
The All-New Cypher
The all-new Cypher and Cypher RS has landed.
A fully-fledged racing bike with enough flair to tear up the descents and power through the climbs. Racing snakes and weekend warriors will feel equally at home on the Cypher and Cypher RS with its pedal efficient platform and progressive geometry.
The brief was clear; design a marathon/XC bike with two water bottle cages, that climbs as well as it descends. While we did not redesign what a bike is or even should be, we went back to basics and built a bike focused on the riding. A truly SMART choice for the racer that wants a bike with a little more versatility.
Two Bike Options
With more rocks, roots, drops and jumps scattered along XC courses and the trails we froth to ride our capabilities have progressed and steered towards riding more capable bikes. Slacker head angles, longer reach, and dare we say more travel has become frequent sightings at the weekend grind.
The new Cypher and Cypher RS fits right into this new age of riding with its’ progressive geometry. In short, the Cypher and Cypher RS is a short travel bike based on the metric shock standard. Using a metric standard shock allows for the design of two travel variations using the same frame by taking advantage of the ability to adjust the stroke length of the shock without affecting the eye-to-eye dimensions. A difference of 7.5mm on the stroke translates into 20mm of travel at the rear axle resulting in two variants; the 100mm Cypher RS has a 37.5mm stroke length while the Cypher has a 45mm stroke.
In addition to the extra 20mm’s of travel on the Cypher it is spec’d with a wider 780mm bar compared to the 750mm flat bar on the Cypher RS. Other subtle hints to the capability and intended riding style of the Cypher include wider 2.35 tires and a Manic 125mm dropper post.
Cypher – 120mm
• 120mm rear wheel travel
• 120mm fork
• BB height – 342mm (High setting) (*Est. Vittoria Barzo 2.35 tire)
• Head tube angle - 68° (High setting)
Cypher RS – 100mm
• 100mm rear wheel travel
• 100mm fork
• BB height – 333mm (High setting) (*Est. Vittoria Barzo 2.25 tire)
• Head tube angle - 69° (High setting)
One bike with a little more variety, because every trail is not the same. The decision to include a flip-chip into the design expands the riding capabilities of the Cypher and Cypher RS, enabling the ability to customise the geometry to the preference of the rider for trail conditions. In the low position, the head angle is reduced by half a degree, and the BB drops by 6mm. This allows riders to take full advantage of the bike and hit the descents and technical sections with elevated velocity.
Both the Cypher and Cypher RS have been designed around 1x drivetrains specifically. A gently progressive leverage ratio is balanced between the ability to resist harsh bottom outs while still allowing the full use of travel. Progressive means that more force needs to be applied the further into the travel the rear axle moves in order to compress the shock – this makes for a supportive ride feel that is stable and composed. The leverage rate has been optimised so that it is not overly progressive, allowing for full use of travel. Anti-squat figures have been calculated to function optimally around 85-115% on 32T - 34T chainrings, those being the most popular size for 12-speed drive systems.
Keeping up with industry trends and innovations the Cypher and Cypher RS frame use BSA threaded BB cups as opposed to press-fit for ease of maintenance and rider concerns over creaky BB’s. Additionally, the frame has internal cable routing solutions for a stealth dropper post, all gear shift cables, rear brake, and a remote lockout cable for the rear shock. Rear-axle standard is Boost 148, which allows us to maximise tire clearance without having to compromise on the rear center length. The Cypher and Cypher RS can carry two water bottles inside the front triangle where they can be easily accessed while riding, a must for racing. A low standover height is perfect for those technical sections and showing your buddies your best whip.
We have really paid close attention to the market and delivering bikes at various price points. The Cypher and Cypher RS are available in both full carbon fiber options that feature the same carbon layup as well as more budget-friendly full aluminum versions. All the Cypher and Cypher RS bikes are spec’d with 1x12 drivetrains and shorter stems paired with a wider bar. On the top end bikes, carbon bars, seat posts, and rims are standard.
Overall, the Cypher and Cypher RS are aimed to bridge the gap between quality high-end bikes that make riding more enjoyable and affordability. A genuine pledge to our commitment to quality lies with our 5 Year Multi-User Warranty that enables consumers to sell their bikes with a Warranty still in place.

4G1B with SuperBoom267. Boom is bent up to give the heli the Hi-Tail look. It also allows you to lower the entire heli without fear of the tail rotor hitting the ground.
The power is all stock, including motors, 4in1 and battery. This video was part of a test to see how the Hi Tail affected handling and to affirm that the 4G1B flies fine with SuperSkids installed.
Notes: The Hi-Tail seemed to make no difference in handling, but having the tail rotor so close to the main rotor did produce a nice, deep throaty sound which isn't picked up well in the video.
The stock power of the heli had no problems with the extra 16 grams of the SuperSkids, Adapter22 and SuperBoom (about the weight of 2 sheets of normal 28lb printer paper). The weight reduced flight times between 70 and 80 seconds.

NEW PATCH ADJUSTMENTS:
WEAPONS + ITEMS
Tactical Assault Rifle
Available in Rare, Epic, and Legendary variants.
Available from Floor Loot, Chests, Supply Drops, and Vending Machines
30 Round Magazine
Deals 22/23/24 damage
Headshot Multiplier of 1.75x
This weapon has a tight spread in close quarters but is less effective at long range when compared to other Assault Rifles.
Reduced Baller health from 200 to 150
The primary goal of the Baller is to provide fun and exciting mobility. We feel that it still has a little too much defensive agency - this change should reduce the effectiveness there while not impacting its strengths.
Drum Gun adjustments
Reduced base damage from 26/27 to 22/23
Since its unvaulting, the Drum Gun effectiveness has been slightly higher than we wanted. This change should reduce its combat effectiveness while still retaining its flavor.
Vaulted Compact SMG
Due to the recent addition of the Drum Gun and the brand new Tactical Assault Rifle, we wanted to reduce the availability of high rate-of-fire weapons.
Slipstreams no longer block building.
Trying to build up to get into a Slipstream should be an easy & intuitive experience. We noticed some cases where players would build up to the Slipstream, but due to build restrictions would take a ‘leap of faith’ and not make the jump. This should make getting into a Slipstream easier.
Players flying in a Slipstream will destroy player built objects when they collide.
Slipstreams are now disabled after storm phase 5.
We’ve seen a number of cases where Slipstreams caused issues during late game circles - primarily around getting pulled into the storm unexpectedly. Since the value of Slipstream mobility is limited in those scenarios, we felt it’s better to simply disable them.
Improvements made to level streaming performance on all platforms.
This will reduce cases of buildings not loading in.
Physics optimizations to improve performance in conduits

Hatsan Hercules Bullpup Integrally Suppressed Air Rifle
The Hercules Bully is Hatsan's newest version of the Hercules Precharged pneumatic Air rifle which was Originally designed for extended range accuracy. If you want to know more
about the original Hercules we have a video of us shooting the 30 caliber version out to 300 yards consistently. Yes, that's 300 yards with an air rifle.
The main issue in my mind with the original Hercules is that this capability came at a cost, a very large, heavy rifle. The bullpup version eliminates some of the extra
capacity in trade for reduced size and weight lending itself to a more balanced design.
Anyway, the bully is Available in .177, .22, .25, .30, .35 and .45 caliber variants. The one we will be using for this videp is in .22. The power plant of this rifle is a 500cc
carbon fiber bottle mounted inside the forward arm. Replacing the two STEEL tank system of the original Hercules. The rifle is gassed up with an 1/8th inch fill probe that is
supplied with the rifle. Ammunition is supplied from a detachable rotary magazine, and the chasis includes index points for the two additional mags supplied with the rifle.
Inset into the bully is a variety of personalization features including an adjustable cheek riser, tunable two stage trigger, and a full length combination 11mm and Picatinny rail
for mounting of optics
The body is all synthetic construction with an integral manometer indicating fill status.
lastly interesting features include a double feed restriction system and and Hatsan's integrally suppressed Quiet Energy barrel, the QE barrel is quoted
reducing report by up to 50% without any need for
participation with the NFA process. So first stop, how does that look in comparison with a real firearm silencer?
