GoPro in the mountains

Posted by Corne Scheepers on Tuesday, March 25, 2014,

The world's favourite action camera has spawned a whole industry around custom camera mounts, but this one is so ridiculous I just had to post it! So picture this - you're packin' some 9mm Glock or SIG heat and you'd love to see yourself in action, right? So what do you do? Why you get this cool GoPro pistol mount of course!
