Social Media Reload

Every week, millions of links, photos and videos are shared on social media from brands and individuals alike. The latest blog series from Laura Burgess Marketing, the Social Media Reload, features the most popular, interesting, entertaining and controversial content in the industry from the past week and repackages it into a quick list with fire power.

Below are three of the top links, photos and videos posted on social media this week.


Dubbed the “Greatest Shooter of All Time” with more than 100 national and world speed and competitive shooting titles and numerous world records, to say Jerry Miculek is quick with the trigger would be an understatement. However, he recently did something that even he had never done before – shot a double-barreled 1911. In fact, Miculek shot two of the AF2011-A1 Double Barrel beasts from Italian manufacturer Arsenal Firearms for a quad-wielding rapid fire video. Captured in both actual time and slow motion, the legend shoots 20, 45 ACP rounds (or “10-bucks worth of ammo,” as Miculek puts it) in an incredible 1.5 seconds, knocking over the standing target in the process. Is there anything Jerry Miculek can’t shoot?

Horseshoe Pay Lake


Advertised as “Home of the Catfish,” Horseshoe Pay Lake in Louisville, KY is a no-limit lake, where for $20 you can fish with friends and family for hours on end. However, one man recently found out there was a catch to the lake’s “no limit” claim. A frequent angler at the lake, Ron Riordan caught 80 Channel catfish a few weeks back, but it wasn’t until his most recent 42-catch outing that a representative of the lake banned him from future fishing. Riordan caught the confrontation on camera in which the lake representative can be heard saying, “You won’t catch another fish out of this lake.” According to the Horseshoe Pay Lake Facebook Page, representatives want to keep the lake, which reopened a year ago after 12 years without an owner,  as no limit, “but if people get greedy they get warned.” In Riordan’s case, they get banned.

Designed to shoot but not kill, law enforcement and corrections officers use less lethal weapons to diffuse potentially violent situations. One of the most common less lethal weapons used is the pump-action, 12-gauge shotgun. SRM Arms, the Idaho-based manufacturer of “The Next Generation Shotgun” and 2013 winner of NRA’s Shooting Illustrated Shotgun of the Year, has created a new less lethal shotgun platform called the Ringfire. Patent-pending, the SRM Ringfire system is designed specifically to eliminate accidental discharges of lethal ammunition in a designated less-lethal shotgun. With a larger primer and an offset firing pin, standard shells can load and cycle but won’t fire. Using strictly SRM Arms less lethal rounds, law enforcement can either purchase the new shotgun platform itself or a bolt replacement for Remington 870. Mossberg 500 and Benelli M4. (via
