WATCH THE BADASS FIRST-PERSON SHOOTER STYLE PROMO FOR THIS PISTOL WITH A BUILT-IN SILENCER

But this is no video game.

If you’ve been considering leveling up with your personal firearm game or even purchasing a first gun for home protection, the first-person shooter feel of SilencerCo’s “Behind the Sights: Maxim 9 FPS” will probably give you pause. It’s a well-made little short with a smooth, professional feel and compelling soundtrack.

SilencerCo describes its product this way:

The Maxim® 9 is the world’s first integrally suppressed 9mm handgun that is holster-able and hearing safe with all types of 9mm ammunition. Shipped in its full-length configuration, the Maxim 9 comes with everything the user needs to shorten the overall length by more than 1”; in the short configuration, the Maxim 9 remains hearing safe with subsonic ammunition.

Regardless of which configuration you use, the Maxim 9 represents one of the greatest strides made in both pistol and suppressor technology. No more choosing between keeping your pistol as short as possible and enduring deafening sound or adding a silencer and dealing with the added length and weight. Now, you can have the best of all worlds with the Maxim 9.

The Maxim 9 is listed at $1499 USD. Its tactical value explains the price—no need for ear protection in target practice and if used in the field the suppressor can provide a psychological edge in focus and concentration for the gun owner.

Additionally, a high-quality firearm and a suppressor purchased separately probably cost more than the Maxim 9’s list price.

U.S.Military’s Electromagnetic Railgun Shoots 100 miles at mach 7

Check out this cannon and the way it works. The canon mechanism is based on the principle of homopolar motor: a pair of parallel conductors (the rails) are fed by an electric current. The projectile is placed making contact with both, to close the circuit. The current that is produced interacts with the strong magnetic fields generated by the passage of electricity through the conductors and this accelerates the projectile linearly in the direction of the rails.

The original idea of ​​this device was to use it to shoot projectiles at high speed to destroy targets. However it is difficult to use as a weapon due to the enormous amount of energy required to operate with a minimum of efficiency and because the space occupied by the power supplies and capacitors used to generate the magnetic field makes it very difficult to transport For the infantry. Even so the United States Navy announced a test done on January 31, 2008 in order to equip their ships with this type of weapons. Leave your thoughts in the comment box below.

 

“Drill Duel” torture test proves who is the toughest and most powerful tool

The compact Dewalt and Milwaukee are two of the most popular battery-powered drills sold on Amazon.

Scientists genetically modify thinner and leaner pigs


Scientists genetically modify thinner and leaner pigs

Using the controversial gene-editing technology, CRISPR, scientists in China have created pigs that are thinner and leaner.

Jianguo Zhao of the Institute of Zoology at the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing worked with a team to create 12 healthy pigs with about 24% less body fat than normal pigs. They used CRISPR to target a special protein known for regulating body temperature by burning a fat protein called UCP1.

As anyone who loves bacon probably knows, it is high in fat, calories, sodium and nitrates. Low-fat pigs mean automatic low-fat bacon, but that wasn’t the original purpose.

Using the controversial gene-editing technology, CRISPR, scientists in China have created pigs that are thinner and leaner.
The study, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, said the experiment was meant to cut down on the UCP1 fat in order to make the pigs less susceptible to cold in winter, cutting costs for farmers.

“They could maintain their body temperature much better, which means that they could survive better in the cold weather,” Zhao said in an interview with NPR.

Zhao said he doubts the gene editing affects the taste of the meat, but R. Michael Roberts, a University of Missouri professor who edited the paper told NPR he didn’t think the Food and Drug Administration would approve the genetically modified pigs for sale. Genetically modified foods are still highly regulated and highly taboo.

TRAXXAS XMAXX WITH A MOUNTED AR-15 – BEST RC TRUCK EVER


Just when you thought the Traxxas Xmaxx couldn’t get any better, a Youtuber mounted an AR-15 on to one.

So RomanAtwoodVlogs from YouTube had the crazy idea one day to mount an AR-15 on to his Traxxas Xmaxx. So he did. And he made this video. This has to be the best RC Truck I have personally ever seen. After this check out this home made AR-15 sentry gun.

Today I had a crazy idea to mount my AR15 to the top of my Traxxas Xmaxx. Obviously this is the most mild version of what this could be. DO NOT TRY THIS!! We had fun just watching the gun shoot from the body of the truck. And being able to shoot the AR15 from the rope was pretty crazy too.
