Just a random girl from Texas

This charismatic wood-worker’s shop is right across from Texas Weapon Systems, and she stopped by for a few minutes. The rifle is a Polish Tantal in 5.45mm, with an Aimpoint sight, and Magpul stock, sling and magazine loop. I will be taking range photos with her in November.

Where in the US could I find this kind of forest?

I am looking for coniferous trees, moss, mushrooms, wild berries, something like this photo set.

HK MP7 sound-suppressed with B&T silencer

4.6x30mm round fires bullets in the 26-42 grain range at 2000-2400fps. Designed to penetrate soft body armor, it produces minimal felt recoil, especially when sound-suppressed. It’s quite easy to keep a 3-6 round burst on a silhouette at 100 meters. Unfortunately, short-barreled weapons with stocks are restricted and taxed, while automatic arms made after 1986 are unavailable to non-government users entirely…almost as if they consider us dangerous savages who cannot be trusted with self-defense arms. That was the policy of the British empire towards its Indian colonial subjects, and it is the preferred policy of certain American politicians to the rest of the country’s population.

Short-notice casting call in Austin, TX

I need a male actor for a short video, someone who would look authoritative and confident speaking about rifles and accessories. The person who was going to work for us is suddenly unavailable.

I haven’t seen sealed battlepacks since the South African 300-rounders. Now PPU is bringing them to the US. They look pretty useful for long-term storage.

This could have been a submachine gun or at least a short carbine…

…but it’s only a PPS43, in the crippled “pistol” form mandated by NFA1934 regulations.

It brings out the battle-ready beast in men!

While 30-30 was not the first smokeless cartridge in wide use, it was the first one for the US. It’s an indication of the correct approach to small arms that American civilians it before the Army, while in Europe it was the other way around. The USMC and the Navy did adopt the long-forgotten 6mm Lee smokeless round about the same time.

Pretty in pink

It seems like every other military rifle design borrows heavily from the AR18 and AR180 design, yet very few of them were built and fewer yet adopted by institutional users.

Low-recoil 45ACP compact

The extra 1.5″ of barrel length and +1 round of capacity relative to other compact 45s are nice, but it’s the very low felt recoil that I like best about Boberg XR45-S. Plus, it is accurate and works with a wide variety of bullet profiles.
