Welcome to very first episode of The Gun Collective News. My name is Jon Patton and this week’s first story is about one of the biggest innovations to hit the firearms industry in a long time. The new Kinect M-Lok QD system from Kinetic Development Group is going to flip the rail attachment game on its head. Using a cam system built into the base of the attachment, they have found a way to quite literally just set it and forget it. All you have to do is push the piece into any M- Lok rail segment and BOOM, it locks into place. If you want to take it off of the gun, there are two tabs on the front and back that you squeeze and it unlocks the cam. It’s really one of those, why the hell didn’t I think of that products. They’re also offering this in a bunch of different configurations with plans to expand the line in the future. Now, let me explain why I think this is huge. Think of the way things are currently attached to firearms. Nearly EVERYTHING uses a screw, knob or throw lever of some sort. To date, Kinect is the simplest way to attach an accessory to your gun. Period. The applications for this type of system in other form factors are huge. Imagine if you wanted to go from an ultra lightweight rail to a super duper tactical quad rail set up without having to buy and install an entirely new rail system. Now think of what could be done with expanding this core concept to something other than M-Lok… Right? The game has been changed. The Kinect system from KDG gives you that flexibility and modularity in a way that no one has thought of. Bravo boys. On today’s hashtag not a review we have an ultra cool holster from my friends at Savoy leather. This particular holster is an outside the waistband version for a full size 1911. What’s cool about it is that not only is it comfortable to carry with, but you can also get it with bad ass custom artwork like we did. On top of that they make them in the heartland of the US. And It’s a holster guys, this is not that complicated. The gun is held securely because they do a good job molding the holsters and the fit and finish is also on point. The stitching is clean. The edges are super smooth. And the coloring is well executed. I own kydex holsters and I own leather holsters, and while kydex does have its benefits, nothing feels as good as a high quality leather holster on your hip. And if you’re like me and like having custom gear, I’m sure youll find a design you like. Because they’re always releasing new ones. Hit the link in the description or head over to Savoyleather.com and check out what they have to offer. We also have some breaking news for you guys. Earlier today Colt Defense filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy Basically what that means is they’re handing their company to debtors and the courts And while this is unfortunate I don’t think anybody is surprised. After they lost the Army contract in 2013 and they haven’t done anything innovative in the last 20 years. Now keep in mind this is Colt Defense, the military and LE side of the business Not Colt Manufacturing which is the civilian side. However this entire story does not bode well for the legend that is the Colt name. And in DEAR GOD I WANT THAT news, ultra resourceful YouTuber StyroPyro created a laser shotgun. Yep. A LASER SHOTGUN. Creating a real life light saber wasn’t enough…No, he had to step it up. Using a massive array of eight, five watt diodes, and a gigantic Lithium Polymer battery pack strapped to an Airsoft AR15, he was able to outdo DARPA in his garage and build this Forty Watt Laser Shotgun. In the viral video, he explains th e setup and lays out the best quote possible. Theres no no good reason for anybody to own something this powerful but because it wasn’t illegal for me to build I decided to build it anyway Now,— of course this is not the same as a traditional shotgun with archaic smokeless powder and lead shot but it can be used to set a bunch of stuff on fire with the massive amount of energy spewing from the beams. Another thing that I found to be pretty cool is that he uses a couple different lenses as “chokes” and changes the pattern to control the beam down range. This is what’s coming guys. Get ready for laser guns. This next story is quite possibly the biggest threat to the First and Second Amendment that we’ve seen in years. Under the new Unified Agenda from the Obama Administration, there are potential changes to ITAR or International Traffic in Arms Regulations that could destroy the very fabric of the firearms industry as we know it. This is a very complex matter as it currently stands but I will break it down the best I can. Essentially, we may not be able to post any more gun related articles, videos, blog posts, images or anything similar. This video that you are currently watching right now, could be included in this censorship. One of the many things regulated by ITAR is something called “Technical Data” which is exactly what it sounds like. Its basically any information about the operation of a gun or ammunition. The potential changes stand to stifle all of that with the implementation of government authorizations and penalties for not complying of up to 1 MILLION dollars. Imagine going to YouTube and finding NOTHING about your favorite guns and ammo. And as much as I like to have fun on this show, this is serious. You need to let the so called “representatives of the people” know how you feel about this. This week’s Friendly Fire we have a question from Facebook user Richard Benjamin. He wants to know: If I was forced to use a 22 Long Rifle for home defense, what gun would I use? Richard, it’s pretty simple. I would us my Buckmark 22 Long Rifle handgun. This has a threaded barrel, and it’s also got a suppressor on it. Combined, this is one of the best packages out there. It’s super manuverable. It’s very light on recoil. And it’s ultra quiet. Making it perfect for home defense. My Friendly Fire question for you guys at home is… Maybe it’s a standard Picatinny, key mod, or even M-Lok. Let me know in the comment section down below.
