The Agilite IPC (Injured Personnel Carrier)

by 2 years, 5 months ago Contribute

A hands-free method of carrying wounded individuals, from Agilite Tactical Gear:

The IPC is Agilite’s latest breakthrough, designed to efficiently carry the most important load you will ever carry-an injured friend.

The IPC, which is intended to replace the fireman’s carry, allows you to carry an injured or otherwise incapacitated person comfortably like a backpack. Designed by Agilite in conjunction with Israeli Army Special Forces, the IPC allows the wearer to evacuate a wounded person and keep their hands completely free to operate a weapon or navigate difficult terrain.

Practical not just for the military, the IPC allows you to carry an injured fellow hiker long distances in a way that is more comfortable than any existing method, both for the carrier and the evacuee.

Available at Agilite. ($79.95) | Via

The Devil Of Rahmadi

by 2 years, 7 months ago Contribute

The Daily Mail profiles SEAL Team Three sniper Chris Kyle, whose 255 confirmed kills, including a 2,100-yard shot, make him the deadliest sniper in US history.

Mr Kyle is a cowboy from Odessa, Texas, who was a professional bronco rodeo rider before he joined the Navy. He grew up hunting deer and pheasant with a rifle and a shotgun his dad bought him.

He never realized he was a good shot until he joined the Navy and got into the prestigious SEAL special operations unit.

For his deadly track record as a marksman during his deployment to Ramadi, the insurgents named him ‘Al-Shaitan Ramad’ — the Devil of Rahmadi — and put a $20,000 bounty on his head.

Devin Graham and some friends take to the treacherous mountain roads of Powder Mountain, Utah because that seems to be a safe place to ride three-wheeled, easily-tippable vehicles at 55 mph.

Steve Buscemi On 9/12/01

by 2 years, 12 months ago 2 Responses

With the 10-year anniversary of 9/11 coming up, here’s a feel-good story about a badass actor doing his part without being a little fame whore about it.

Today I learned on 9/12/01 Steve Buscemi (top left) showed up at Little Italy’s Engine Company #55 (where he was a fire fighter from 1980-1984) to volunteer, working 12-hour shifts for a week looking for missing comrades. He reportedly refused to do interviews or have his picture taken, although it appears someone snapped off a shot anyway.

The Irish Teen Who Tracks And Kills Gaddafi’s Snipers

by 3 years, 0 months ago Contribute

From Mail & Guardian:

With his flipped-round baseball cap and “Just Do It” T-shirt, Tareg Gazel looks like any other 19-year-old. But this teen’s job is to use cunning and guile to find and kill Muammar Gaddafi regime snipers.

His mother is from Belfast, his father is Libyan and, as if drawn from the script of a Hollywood movie, he is now using what he learnt hunting game in the desert to liberate Zawiyah, his city that lies almost at the gates of Tripoli.
