A hungry friend stopped by today, so I put this dish together. It was delicious. Prep and cooking were under 15 minutes total, less than driving to the nearest fast food place would have taken.

Russian riverboat girls are tough This one cleans up pretty well.
Another blog post up on using red dot sight.
Browning M1919 on an MG42 tripod: 250 rounds of 30-06 or .308 before a reload…I think this will end the AR15 vs. AK47 debate.
Shot it with regular ammo and SBR tracers yesterday. Watching people getting hits on a 50 yard target with a pocket pistol was pretty cool.
This rig is an excellent illustration of how guns can make up for lack of number or physical strength. A hundred-pound girl can hold off a mob of hundreds if properly armed, while even a dozen of unarmed strong men … Continue reading
Taken with ATN PVS14 and a Panasonic LX3. The camera was used at ISO200, so it added a bit of noise to the image.At base ISO, the exposure would have been 1/6s, going up to 200 allowed 1/15s at f2.5. … Continue reading
JRC was ostensibly designed as a traines for AR15 users. The manual of arms is much too different for that, but it seems quite useable as low-recoil home defense guns and for those who like “cowboy logistics”, the commonality of … Continue reading

Zett with Mauser C96 from Chris Range’s upcoming comic book.
Airship engineer character for the upcoming dieselpunk comic book “Zett & Lux” by Chris Range. Auto Ordnance 1927 Thompson with 100rd drum and 20rd stick magazines.
With its rate reducer removed, vz61 can fire the entire 20-round magazine in one second with excellent control over the burst placement. With a sound suppressor, muzzle climb becomes negligible. The 75m and 150m sight markings are wildly optimistic even … Continue reading
Ways to make sure that new shooters enjoy their first range trip.
More options in medium frame revolvers: .38 and .357 Czechpoint models. I haven’t fired them yet but hope to do it by the end of the month. Overall, they look like K-frames with recessed chambers and re-designed ejectors.
Hunter vs. soldier, rifle vs. musket.
