guns stories

 
If your parents ever yelled at you to get out of the house to get some exercise (or if your own conscience bugs you about it) but you didn't want to stop playing Call of Duty or Halo, Hasbro has a compromise: Lazer Tag, which mixes first shooting video game play with the real world. Update at the bottom of this post.
 
There's a fella on YouTube showing off some serious MacGuyver skills. He's made a bullpup-style machine gun that fires BBs, using a 20-ounce soda bottle and some over-the-counter parts totally $15. He shows it off firing at a target, and it looks like it does some serious damage.
 
The U.S. Army has been very pleased with its fancy new XM25s, the gun that can shoot "smart" bullets at enemies behind cover. But the XM25's bullets are only smart in one dimension, while Sandia National Labs has just tested a prototype laser-guided bullet that can steer itself and home in on targets.
 
The NYPD is looking to create a mobile version of the kind of full body scans we're all used to at airports, in that it'd show the shape of objects stored underneath clothing. The system would allow police officers to spot armed passerby on the street without ever having to get out of a police van.
