Paul, Jarrad, and Zachary all discuss current and upcoming projects to include the new “Real Men Wear Shorts” video series. The first episode is available for viewing by Grad Program members now. As well as answer a question regarding learning about Rhodesian light infantry.

Also an Islamic convert went on a terrorist rampage in Norway using a bow and a quiver-full of arrows to kill five and injure two others. In a country with strict gun control and unarmed police, how could this happen? What are some of the lessons learned from this situation?

Lastly, during our Duracoat Finished Firearm of the Week segment, Paul displays a gun that many people have referred to as “ugly”. How do we make ugly guns more pleasing to the eye?

Four women and a man were killed and two others wounded when a man used a bow and arrow to attack them in Norway.

Police first received word of an attack in the town of Kongsberg, south-west of the capital Oslo, at 18:12 local time (16:12 GMT).

A Danish man aged 37 has been arrested and questioned for hours overnight.

Police said they had previously been in contact with him over fears of radicalisation after he converted to Islam.

The victims were all aged between 50 and 70, regional police chief Ole Bredrup Saeverud told reporters on Thursday morning.
