Update on H& Kocks lawsuits against Airsoft

 I told you I would try and keep you up to date on the on going lawsuits by H & Kock
This is one that I have found an Update on, HK vs Hobbytron
Looks like Hobbytron did lose $51,000 or so,
but the judgment was set aside do to faulty service of summons.

On the other lawsuits, this is the latest info I could find

Looks like they are still going forward, as far as I can tell.
This is an update to this old post of mine.
As I said in the last post, I hate that this is going on,
I understand why they are doing it, but still hate it is happening. 
Why can't we all just get along!!!!!!!!

Beat down Boogie Redux

Just a brief update on my time spent on set last weekend with the crew 
filming part 3/4 of their smash youtube hit.

I got to show off some new lighting and a gun or two,
but the best part was the chance to be an extra in the next episode!
 Wish they had made me wear a balaclava, but at least I look ugly enough to be a SWAT cop!
And yes my finger is on the trigger, that is because I was shooting someone!

 I was running a Ares FNC for the 1st part of the day, 
had to switch to my X Caliber Tactical built custom Patriot for the afternoon
as I am still sporting a few broken ribs from my encounter with a bridge a few weeks back.

Yes, that is a C mag, come on, it's a movie
Wish you could see a reflection of "Ghost" in my heads up
I did have him "dead to rights"

I had a hell of a great time, I have never worked with a film crew that were anywhere near as friendly
or as accommodating as these guys were to their bit players.
Super crew and everyone there was professional and nice.

This is coming from a cranky old guy that usually bitches about everything, 
so for me this is high praise.

They have some editing and effects work to do in post , 
Ep 3 should be out in a month or so, 
please check it out.

Till tomorrow,
Stay Thirsty my Friends

Beat down Boogie

Modern Film making at its best.

We have all seen the slock that Hollywood has been putting out for a while now.
Having worked for a while in the industry back in the old days
( just as a TA, never more than that),
I love to see the new direction that YouTube has taken the next Generation.
Airsoft guns are being used more and more these days,
They are safer, cheaper and with the effects being added in post, easier.
I remember the days of 20 takes because a Bren 10 would not cycle blanks reliably.
Here are some local film makers that are showing a huge talent for the art.
Check out their stuff, I still get a laugh every time I watch these.

They have some more on their You Tube channel
Give them a try, hope you are as impressed as I was.
