The Modem Lives! or I’d Better Post While I Can

If you have broadband access, go take a look at the videos available at of the Armed Forces Journal “Shootout at Blackwater.” Some of these are pretty awesome, but the smallest video is 1.3Mb, and most run over 5. But they’re worth it. Fascinating stuff.

If you’re interested in the latest and greatest weapons technology (brought to you by the private sector – selling stuff only government agencies get to play with) then you’ll spend some time perusing the rest of the site.

You’ll see things like the .408 Chey-Tac long-range rifle, blended-metal projectiles that penetrate armor plate, but not soft tissue, and a lot more.

I would not want to be on the receiving end of any of this technology. But I’d sure like to be behind the trigger of most of it.
