Part comedy roast, part torture test, MattV2099 is back with another rubber band video, this time with a “Vickers Tactical Limited Editition” Ruger SR1911 pistol. After generously lubing the gun in Crisco (yes, that Crisco), he increases the rubber bands until it fails. So, just how many rubber bands did it take to stop a Ruger SR1911 worthy of Vickers himself? In the end, MattV2099 isn’t even entirely sure, but watch and find out. (via Guns.com)
“OKAY” TO ARM TEACHERS
Located 50 miles southeast of Tulsa lies the small rural town of Okay, Oklahoma. With less than 1,000 residents (as of a 2010), the town’s police department disbanded in 2014. And while sheriff’s deputies are available, Superintendent Charles McMahan says that may not be enough. This week, school officials erected signs warning potential attackers that staff members may be armed. With the recent string of shootings throughout the country, Okay High School Principal Mark Hayes just wants to “keep our students safe.” (via Fox News)
Known as one of the more popular, vulgar and hilarious games out there, Cards Against Humanity now has its own unofficial version just for service members and veterans. Titled Disgruntled Decks, the card game replaces the usual questions and answers with topics and humor familiar to military members, like ‘Stolen Valor’ and ‘The Good Idea Fairy.’ 1st Lt. Matthew Coble is behind the project, which surpassed its $15,000 Kickstarter goal in less than 24 hours and has now raised more than five times that. (via Army Times)
