“COPS” Reality TV Show Cameraman Shot and Killed During Filming

COPS

A cameraman from the popular reality TV show “COPS” was shot and killed today while filming footage for the show with the Omaha  Police Department. Bryce Dion, a seven year veteran with the show, was filming with a group of officers when they  responded to an armed robbery in progress. The call was placed at a Wendy’s fast food restaurant, where they met a sespect that fired on them and police returned fire on the robbery suspect.  The cameraman was caught in the cross-fire.  One of the rounds fired, by responding officers, struck Dion in the upper torso. Dion was wearing a bulletproof vest but the round hit him in the opening at the arm. Bryce later died from his wounds, as did the robbery suspect who was also struck by one of the officers bullets. It now appears that the suspect was wielding an Airsoft or pellet gun that the responding officers thought was a real firearm. Below is a link to the source of the story from TMZ.

Viewer Requested Full Auto Fun!

 

Well, a lot of you guys have asked for it and here it is. Viewer Requested Full Auto Fun! I guess seeing the pond just setting there being pretty in the background of all our videos was just too much for some of you guys to handle! So you wanted us to go all mid-evil on it with a full auto machine gun! We heard you and responded accordingly. In this video we are shooting the M16 lower with an LWRC 10 1/2″ upper, with a Beta C-Mag 100 round drum magazine feeding the weapon. Hey it’s a tuff job but someone has to do it, right? What could be better than shooting machine guns for you guys? We hope you enjoyed this fun little video and make sure you come back for more!

Beretta ARX 100 Frist shots

We take the Beretta ARX 100 first shots at our range for a few function test, and I’m happy to say the ARX preformed perfectly during all of them. We tried a few different kinds of ammo and a few different mags just to make sure that it was a good test for the rifle. Like always we will be doing a full review once we have enough time and rounds down range with the gun.  The Beretta ARX 100 preformed great so far and we don’t expect that to change, but if it does rest assured that we will let you know. If you would like to learn more about the Beretta ARX 100 or any of Beretta’s other fine firearms please visit them at their website. Here

Hill & Mac Gunworks Target System

The Hill & Mac Gunworks Target System is one of the best we’ve seen as far as form and function is concerned. The target system is well thought out and works as you’d expect it to. They offer both a rifle and pistol version of the targets, and with many different shapes to choose from. The targets are a reactive system, meaning that every time you hit the target it well fold backwards and then spring forward back into position again to confirm the hit on target. This is a very nice feature especially if you are shooting at distance, because it makes it easier to identify hits. It’s also very rewarding watching the target go down after a well placed hit. Another nice feature that the Hill & Mac Gunworks target system has is the ability to change out the target plates once you make the initial investment in a HMG system. It’s very easy to change plates simply by removing a cotter pin and pulling out and removing the spring pin, then just put whatever plate that HMG offers on, it’s like having a bunch of targets in one. The Hill & Mac Gunworks target system can also be elevated by purchasing an elevation kit sold by HMG. Another option is the target remote reset, unlike some other companies that require you to lug around a car battery to reset your reactive target Hill & Mac Gunworks only uses  four AA batteries in it’s resetter and is good for tens or thousands of resets, and can be used out to a thousand yards. With all the features and options you get with this target system it’s a no brainer, you need this system in your life it your serious about shooting steel and want a product that will last a lifetime.

NSR Tactical Custom Kydex

The NSR Tactical Custom kydex setup that you see in this video was tested for many months, and was found to be very comfortable and reliable. Retention on the holster was great right out of the box no adjustments needed. Same with the magazine holder and TDI knife sheath. The draw of the holster was very smooth and fast, re-holstering was also very easy as there was no fumbling or hang-ups when reinserting the gun. Another great thing about this particular holster was the fact that it was a tuck-able holster. What this means is that if you wanted to wear a shirt tucked in to your pants like a polo or something you could. This came in very handy for me as I wore this Kydex holster to church quite often, and needed to have my shirt tucked but still be armed. NSR does a great job of smoothing out and polishing the edges of their gear, there was no sharp edges or nicks in the kydex that would cause it to be uncomfortable or snag on clothing. All this and at a reasonable price. If you would like to get your own NSR Tactical gear please visit them their website Here

Hexmag Full Review

In this video we test the Hexmag magazines. We have been testing these mags for several months now, and have over 1000 rounds through them with no problems whatsoever. Yeah, and we haven’t been exactly easy on them either, form dropping them on the ground a few hounded times, to running them over with the jeep. Life has been hard for these magazines and not even a hiccup so far. We ever throw it in the creek and filled it with mud buy nothing would stop the Hexmag from running. If  you’re in the market for some new mags that are made right here in the USA then check out Hexmag.  Here
