  1. Well, I'm old as shit. Decided to treat myself to a bolt-action .30-06, was looking at a Birmingham Small Arms sporterized Mauser, it was $300 last time I had went but was now $375. Next to it was a rifle that had almost the exact same lay-out (21" barrel, iron sights on the barrel), but the sights were better and it had a scope. Apparently the scope and ring combination is worth $200, so after paying $351 after tax for the whole shebang, turns out I got a great deal. The scope is a Weaver El Paso K4 fixed telescope (not variable) and it has a pivoting mount so I can drop the scope out of the way to use the iron sights. Perfect deer and bear rifle. It is a Savage Model 110, made in the US, made in Chicopee Falls, MA.

    If my research is correct, this is possibly from the first year of production and may actually be the 5656th of this rifle ever made.

      If you go to a public range and see dudes shooting .30-06s, save their brass, you can reload it into .270 cartridges.

    http://www.timesunion.com/local/article/Nassau-father-son-arrested-on-weapon-charge-3682186.php#photo-3152190

    I met this crazy asshole on an IRC channel. One day he admitted to me that he had an illegally sawed-off shotgun and an illegally possessed handgun (he lives in New York, like me, and New York requires a permit to possess handguns). Another user of the channel pointed me to his public profile on the website the channel is dedicated to. On his profile was longitude and lattitude coordinates to his house (seriously? seriously.) and pictures of said illegal guns. Little did I know that the CETME .308 caliber rifle pictured next to his illegal handgun was in fact a fully-automatic machinegun and not a semi-automatic rifle.

    I promptly LOL'd about his stupidity and proceeded to paste his public profile in several channels and one person, who was a member of both channels, took notice and LOL'd along with me. During this time, we noted several very disturbing comments and an attitude that suggested that he and his father believed national chaos was imminent and that if it came about that he was going to be free of moral scruples. This was the impetus for us to report him to New York state authorities. We compiled as much evidence (IRC logs, URL of pictures he removed from the HTML of his profile but did not actually delete them from the image host, and his IP / hostmask) and he reported the guy to New York's crime tip line.

    As they say, the wheels of justice grind slow, but they grind fine, and as the weeks rolled into months, we wondered if the cops had forgotten about it or something, but then today he got an e-mail (the cops periodically e-mailed back and once called him) saying that they had executed a search warrant at the address provided and had recovered machineguns, sawed-off shotguns (the one he had shown us was clearly visible in the police evidence photos that the news article I read) and pistols. Turns out his father had used a Federal Curio and Relics collector license, which allows you to have elligible firearms shipped directly to your home, to transfer the pistols. However, to do so legally in New York with handguns, you must have a handgun permit, which neither of them had. The machineguns were built from lawfully-acquired parts kits, which are typically built by hobbyists into completely legal semi-automatic firearms (by law, the receivers must vary enough to not accept fully-automatic parts).

    I am very pro-gun, I do believe it should be legal to own fully-automatic firearms and it is legal in around 40 states to do so (NY not being one of them) but I also believe that ignoring unjust laws is not a moral way to protest them. It saddens me this young man has been arrested for violating laws that should not exist, particularly the law about "collapsible stocks" that New York has, but at the same time, I cannot pity him too much, he and his father knew full well that they were breaking various State and Federal laws and he was callous enough to make this public for ANYONE that Google searched his IRC nickname (first result, actually) to find.

    EDIT : technically they haven't found him or his father guilty, just charged him...but as far as cases go, they just don't get any more closed than that.

      He could become their contribution to a Syrian peacekeeping force, that's assuming the UN Security Council manages to resolve its current deadlock.

  3. I was at a nearby gun shop to pick up some ammo for my AR-15 when I noticed a sporterized Carcano (modified for hunting as opposed to the original military configuration). The Carcano is an Italian-designed bolt-action rifle, most infamous as being the type of weapon used to strike down JFK, and this tragic incident apparently gave it an undeserved reputation as "cheap Wop junk" (excuse the slur). Well, as a result, most sitting in gun shops are marked for low prices and sold as unshootable due to rumors that they are unsafe (they aren't) or are generally poor quality in general (they aren't).

    This particular example is somewhat uncommon. It is a Model 38 in 7.35x51 Carcano, a cartridge intended to replace the 6.5x52 Carcano (they share the same case, 7.35 is merely modified to accept the larger diameter projectile). It was manufactured by an Italian state-run arsenal known as Terni in 1939, the first year of a production run of only 2 years (1939-1940). After 1940, they decided to re-adopt 6.5 due to supply issues. Thus, they stopped making Model 38s and started making them in that pattern, yet in 6.5, calling it the 91/38. A lot of 7.35 Model 38s were given to Finland as aid against the Russians, which probably confused the hell out of the Finns. "What do we do with this rifle that shoots ammo we don't use?" so they just ended up giving them to people who MIGHT NEED a rifle as opposed to ABSOLUTELY NEEDED one.

    I figured it would be a neat piece to hang on my ammo cabinet, so I asked the guy if he would take $50 for it instead of $75, he did, so after filling out Form 4473 and getting a NICS instant backround check run on me, I walked away with it in about 5 minutes.

  4. Yesterday my uncle stopped by to work on his car. While we were working, I noticed my grandpa's old .22 in his trunk. I commented on it and picked it up and he was like "oh yeah, you can have that, I don't really do anything with it anyway and I can't take care of it". I was pretty happy, I wanted it but I didn't want to bring it up. My uncle had sanded the stock down ages ago but never refinished it, so my buddy grabbed some stain and polyeurethene and refinished it. I got the metal cleaned up as best I could, looks a lot better. Now all it needs is a magazine.



    It is a Mossberg 350KA, made in the late 1950s until the middle of the 1980s. It's pretty over-engineered for a .22, built way tougher than it'd ever need to be.



    My AR-15 upper receiver arrived today, it is a Del-Ton A3 with M4 feed ramps, 16" chrome-lined barrel, mid-length gas system. Pinned and welded (fucking NY) Yankee Hill Machine muzzle brake with "agressive end". The carrying handle is from DPMS. The lower receiver is Aero Precision, the lower receiver parts kit I used was from DPMS and the A2 stock assembly (stock, tube, buffer) is from Model 1 Sales. It seems like it will be a really fun gun.



    And it continues to grow ;-P

      Not a bad collection! Could use a few handguns of course. :P
      Certainly puts my "collection" of two Mossberg shotguns to shame.

  5. On July 31st, I turned a quarter of a century old. Go me! As a sign of my decrepitness, I spent most of the day sleeping after I got home from work in the afternoon.

    My mom decided to take me shopping for clothes for my birthday, so I got three pairs of shorts and two shirts, which is all I really needed. I thought XL would be right for me but these things are fucking tents on me, but since I work in a restaurant, I don't mind. Loose-fitting clothing can be the difference between burned skin or not.

    A friend of mine got an old wood gun cabinet for me from some guy he knows, it could only hold 5 guns and had really, really tiny shelves, about a little bigger than a shotgun shell box. Needless to say, I had no use for a wooden gun cabinet when I have a metal one. However, the size and double-sided set-up were perfect to unclutter my room. After knocking all the old shelves out with a hammer and pulling the nails out of the thing, which took forever, my friend hooked me up with some old spare 2x8 boards he had. We cut them to length and then cut about a blade's worth off one pair for each shelf so it would fit. The left hand (with your back to it) top side actually has a shim using a smaller scrap piece off the end of one of the boards and a part of the old shelf (waste not, want not, right?) Another spare piece was used to make the divider on the right hand side.

    I found an OLD carving of my name from when I was like, 10, so I put it on the door. My brother bought me that Winchester plate a long time ago but I never really had a place to put it until now. I also put up a Mustang logo (says 239) with some of the small brass hangers that were in the cabinet. The shotgun and pouch belt is hanging on a stronger hanger than was also inside it.





    And a "War Room" pic just for the hell of it :-P

  6. I got a Revelation 310C (Mossberg 500C 20 gauge made and marked under Western Auto's house brand name) a long time ago from my Uncle for free. It had a badly cracked stock that made it all wobbly, other than that, it was solid. I didn't have a good "before" pic, so I found one on Imageshack.

    26" barrel was reduced to 18", the original bead was re-installed and it was ported in the style of this Mossberg 185KA 20 gauge bolt-action, 5 vertical cuts down the side. I plan on getting an OLight T15 1xAA model light and a CR123A battery tube for it. I am also most likely getting a Beamshot green laser for it.

      This is the only firearm I own with the sole intent of using it for personal defense of my home. The rest are for their utility or historical value.

  7. Yes, I got ANOTHER gun today...I am a little surprised myself, but the price was too damn good to pass up. It's a Romanian SKS, those go for $350-450 or more around here, I got this baby for $250.

      Ah the SKS... I was shooting with one of those yesterday. Was out with a group of friends. Buddy who has the SKS we call him Frank Castle as he is utterly obsessed with guns. Like somebody in this blog posting :D Bayonet while a neat touch, is pretty useless in that you'll likely never need it.

      Very nice rifle to shoot with. Found it to be really accurate, or perhaps too much CoD: WAW got me accustomed to aiming with rifles since I last went shooting. Made me wish I got my FAC, he picked his up for $199.50 + 12% tax.

      They also offer the SKS with 1120 CZ rounds for only $350.

      It's the Simonov Russian SKS: http://www.leverarms.com/

      Under the headings "New Arrival" and "Special" if you want to take a look.

  8. Nothing special, just a Ruger 10/22, a semi-auto .22LR carbine. Very fun to shoot, very cheap, extremely modular. If I cared to, I could easily spend two or three times the cost of the gun itself in modifications geared to extremely accurate target shooting. Hell, there are barrels for this thing that cost $300, the gun usually runs $200-300ish itself.



    I don't have a picture of it, but it's just a completely stock Ruger 10/22. I'll likely get an aftermarket stock for it and possibly some optics. Luckily, magazines are inexpensive and common, so I won't have a problem there.

    As an aside, I highly recommend the Ruger 10/22 as a first gun for anyone interested in buying a firearm. You will get a very superb rifle for a very good price, it's very inexpensive to shoot and will teach you the basics of firearms and accuracy, which will allow you to move up to a different chambering.

      Well, I've got two AKs and a Mosin and some shotguns, they're pretty expensive to feed, that's the main reason I needed a semi-auto .22 ;-P

      And they would certainly be useful for "zombies". You carry a "real" rifle for "real" work and the .22 and oodles of ammo for hunting small game and as a secondary defensive weapon.

      I've got a Mosin-Nagant, they very fun, very inexpensive to shoot. I paid $150 for 800 rounds in a sealed tin. If you happen to get one with "sticky bolt", don't despair, a little brake cleaner soaking the chamber or pouring boiling water through the chamber works.

  9. My dad picked up a bolt-action 12 gauge for $25, it's a little rough, but I am gonna fixed it up to gain some skills in practical gunsmithing. It's a J.C. Higgins, sold by Sears and Roebuck anywhere from 1940-something to the mid-1950s. Pretty neat gun.















    The end of the barrel was cut off crudely (it's 21 inches though, 18 is the min. length) so I have to fix that by grinding it relatively straight, filing it then giving it a good buffing. The jerk that did it (the guy my dad bought it off of) got metal shavings in the barrel and action, so I need to give it a really good cleaning and oiling (which I was gonna do anyway, but that makes it more urgent). I am going to silver solder a bead so it has a front sight bead again. I am going to install a new recoil pad because that one is red, cracked and from the 1950s. So yeah, it'll be a fun experience, for sure, but once I am done, I'll end up with a solid work-horse.

      2 3/4" (70mm) only, dunno the capacity yet as I am not about to load an old gun in my house :-P Judging by the length of the tube though, I assume it holds 5 in the tube and 1 in the chamber.

      On a related note, they actually do make .22s and other starter rifles that come in pink. I happened to see such a gun in a local gun store a few months back.

  11. Yeah, the SKS was fucked up, so I decided to get one of the new Saiga 5.45x39 AK rifles, basically an AK-74 / AK-105 rifle.



    It's the one on the bottom. It's gonna look vaguely like the one on the top.

      Yes
      Yes and I'm going to do so as soon as possible, I gotta get pre-94 AK-74 mags, which means steel Polski Tantal mags at $30 a pop and East German mags at $40 a pop
      The replacement furniture comes with sling loops that are supposed to be used with AK-style slings :-P

  12. Yes, yes, the good news is a new gun, but the bad news it also didn't work properly when I test-fired it :( So I took it back, they're repairing it for free. It was jamming every 8th round. Anyway, they'll gimme a call when it's up and running again. I did manage to take some pics of it before I test-fired it.

    It's a Yugoslavian 59/66 SKS, semi-automatic 7.62x39 carbine, fixed 10 round magazine. The sucker on the end is a Goddamn grenade launcher, shoots standard 22mm NATO rifle grenades ;-P It also has a folding bayonet.





    Though it's Yugoslavian-made, the SKS is Russian-designed, thus I have an example of all three of the most widely-fielded Russian-designed arms in the world, the Mosin-Nagant (top), SKS (middle) and AK (bottom).

    The SKS and AK-47 I have share the same 7.62x39 ammunition, but the design is completely different from the AK-47. I can't wait to get it back and in working condition.

      Supposedly the Kel-Tec RFB is a modified FAL in a pullpup configuration with a forward ejection system.


      The RFB shares basically no design characteristics with the FAL besides the fact that it is designed to feed from "Metric" style FAL mags. It does, however, "borrow" the tubular ejection system from the FS2000.

      Snarboo said:

      Bullpup has some major advantages, though:
      -Shorter overall length, making the weapon more compact.
      -Most bullpup weapons are designed to be ambidextrous, so both left and right handed people can fire more comfortably.
      -Most bullpups have the stock and barrel as one continous line, like the M16, which some consider superior to having the stock offset from the barrel, like the AK-47.

      There are some disadvantages, such as longer trigger pull, but I'd say taking a fully functional weapon and making it more compact is win-win.


      1. Bullpups are shorter, but they suffer from more awkward controls. For example, magazine changes on bullpups are slower because the shooter must reach back and under the rifle to insert a new mag. Also, because they are shorter they lose some practical accuracy (i.e. the ability of the rifle-shooter combination to deliver accurate fire). Namely, they have an extremely short sight radius using iron sights (which is why most bullpups are issued with optics) and the fact that the majority of the weight of the rifle is behind the shooters hands means they are harder to hold steady in unsupported positions.

      2. Now this is just plain wrong. Rifles with a conventional layout are FAR more ambidextrous than most bullpup designs. You will note with the exception of the FN FS2000 and the Kel-Tec RFB (and maybe one or two other designs I am forgetting) most bullpups eject spent cases out the side of the rifle. Some designs (such as the Steyr AUG and FAMAS) can be retrofitted to left-side ejection by an armorer, while other designs such as the British L85 and Chinese QBZ95 cannot. Furthermore, the side-ejection bullpups prevent switching shoulders while using the rifle, such as when shooting around cover. The controls are also often poorly place for use by people who are left handed, particularly the safeties on many rifles.

      Even the tube ejection system used in the RFB and FS2000 is reported to have issues. And if there is a malfunction in that system it can be difficult to clear.

      3. Actually, from the AKM onward the Kalashnikov series of rifles has had a stock in line with the bore. You are probably being thrown off by the gas system above the barrel. Most rifles produced from the sixties onwards have a "straight line" arrangement.

      4. It isn't just that the trigger pull is long, it is that it tends to be gritty and usually doesn't have a clean "break."

      I would say that bullpup rifles have a use, but they definitely are not the "next stage of rifle development" or the other bullshit that some people peddle about them. Like everything else they are a compromise. If they areas that they are lacking are of secondary importance to the user, then they are a good choice. But they are far from dominating conventional weapons.

      If you are planning on clearing buildings and to a lesser extent operating from vehicles* short rifles can be very useful, but ergonomics, ambidextrous use (in most models) and long range capability are degraded.

      *Due to the fact that they are easier to stow. Actually fighting from vehicles is well known to be suicide.

      Of course, that is what makes the RFB seem, in my opinion, something of a white elephant. You have a cartridge well suited for ranged engagements on open terrain, and combine it with a compact rifle that is light (greater recovery time between shots) and short (less practical accuracy and greater muzzle blast). Not a terribly practical weapon.

      Dr. Zin said:

      short (less practical accuracy and greater muzzle blast)

      This is something I was curious about: isn't the whole point of a bullpup weapon to have the same barrel length as a traditional weapon but be shorter in total length? I always thought barrel length was more important for determining accuracy. The Romanian AK you posted seems to have a longer barrel than a traditional AK while still being about the same length overall. That's why I pointed out how compact bullpups are. Otherwise your points are completely accurate.

      Honestly, the RFB seems to be designed to be nothing more than a range toy. :P Fun to look at and shoot, but not something made for combat. I posted it because it had an interesting ejection system that appears to be truly ambidextrous, if not practical.

      Barrel length actually has almost nothing to do with intrinsic accuracy (i.e. the accuracy potential of a rifle without the human element). Rather increased barrel length provides benefits to the practical accuracy of the rifle and its ballistics.

      The greatest boon to accuracy from a longer barrel is the increased sight radius when using iron sites. As said before, this is negated through the use of optics on most bullpups. The other benefit is that the rifle has a balance point where the front hand grips it when shooting offhand. This allows the shooter to "lock in" the supporting arm and reduce the drifting of the sights over the target, especially when using a shooting sling.

      However, the real reason that longer barrels in compact packages are touted is the improved ballistics when bullpups are compared with similar sized conventional rifles. Obviously because there is more length of barrel for the burning powder to act upon the projectile, it achieves a higher muzzle velocity. One bonus is that the round has less drop at long range, but the real benefit is that higher velocities tend to result in the fragmentation of FMJ projectiles at close ranges.

      If you are familiar with the Hague Accords you know that it is a war crime for a military to issue expanding ammunition. As a way of weaseling their way around this requirement many militaries have developed fully jacketed rounds that will lose their structural integrity when striking targets at high velocity. When you compare a Steyr AUG with an ultra-compact AR carbine you find that the AUG has a 16" barrel while the AR has a 11.5" in similarly sized guns. The 16" barrel is much more likely to produce fragmentation in its projectiles.

      Yeah, like I said Kel-Tec ripped that system from FN. The F2000 has actually been issued to some forces, but I note that all of them have a very low probability of seeing actual combat. Like you said, great idea for the range - terrible idea for the battlefield.



  14. I've had that thing sitting in a drawer for a few years, a few days ago I decided to mess with it. Well, it was acting like some keys were stuck, so I figured "I'll just hook up an external keyboard." Well, it was still acting like a whore, so I decided to just tear out the offending keys. That did not work.

    I decided to try and take it apart and took all the screws out. Turns out there's two screws UNDERNEATH THE KEYBOARD HOLDING IT TOGETHER. Arg. So, finally, I grab the nearest tools and get to work. A screwdriver and an AK bayonet. Pried that bastard right off and now it works great.

    At first it wasn't running with accelerated graphics, but a quick trip to Google supplied me with the drivers directly from HP, turns out it's a 64mb ATI card. Anyway, it's a decent gaming rig, but it has shut down randomly twice while playing Opposing Force (I have a CD copy from the Half-Life Platinum pack). Anyway, I manually installed XP Service Packs 2 and 3 from CDs due to no intrawebs on that, yet. My cable ISP offers dial-up access numbers, so I may take advantage of that and use dial-up upstairs during non-phone hours.

    Games I have on it so far :

    ZSNES and a bunch of ROMS
    GBA emu and roms

    I just need to finish up 1 tiny detail. There's small differences between Saiga and AK magazines, to rectify this, I must install a feed ramp and shave down some metal on the mag catch to use AK magazines. So basically, just imagine the above with this on it :



    This is a Saiga 7.62x39 rifle, made in Russia. With the complete of this conversion, it's technically US-made now, so it's a Russian-American AK rifle. Can't beat that.

      It now will feed properly from standard AK magazines instead of the Saiga-specific magazines. I got 420 rounds on the way, can't wait to get all these mags loaded up and go off shooting :-D

  17. A couple weeks ago, I dropped $99 for an AR-15 lower receiver. Note, this isn't the one I ordered, just a visual representation of what it is :



    I called yesterday and it turns out that they oversold their stock, so I have to wait until they get their next batch in. This is a big pain in the ass, because this is the critical part and the only part of the gun that can't be shipped directly to my door, so I may get the rest of the rifle (upper receiver assembly, lower parts kit and a buttstock) before the actual firearm itself (under Federal law, since it is the serial #ed part, it is the firearm).

      You can't fucking compare Bush to any of those monsters.

      I'd only start to compare him to Adolf, mostly because the other two were evidently individuals with more intelligence and initiative (or balls). Morally it's hard to compare them, as their contexts are so different. Put Bush in a country in true turmoil (such as during the US civil war), especially in a real war-time situation (and no, Afghanistan and Iraq don't count; those were just one-sided skirmishes compared to wars where powers smash each other to pieces), and we'd have to see.

      If the US would really have gone to shit somehow I get the impression Bush would have been set aside even more visibly than he was during his presidency, perhaps with Cheney saying the equivalent of "step aside boy, it's time for real men to get the guns crackin'!"

Despite all stereotypes, the average American IS smart enough not to elect Hitler.

      Again, before you can judge that as a comparison, the US would have to be in a similar situation to Germany after the Great War, plus suffer a pretty bad economic crisis. We might be having the latter, but that's only half (or less) of the problem*. I assure you, sense in a society can go out the window in the blink of an eye in the same way an apparently sane person can "snap" in an ugly situation. I'd say that if there's something keeping bloody tyranny away in the US, it's a certain lack of conflict or imbalance, more than any sort of spiritual guarantee due to the "uprightness" or "education" of the people.

      I think to tide myself over, I will get an antique Finnish Mosin-Nagant M39 rifle. It can be shipped right to my door because the receiver was made before 1899. Despite this, they are just as strong, reliable and accurate as my Russian Mosin-Nagant M91/30 made in 1927, or a Polish Mosin M44 carbine made in 1952.



      This specific rifle, which I hope to get (or one like it) was acquired by Finland through various means (capture in warfare, purchased / trade with other countries that had Mosins). They got heaps and heaps of Mosins and ravaged them, replacing the sights, stock and barrels to their specifications, as well as other modifications. The receiver is this part :

      The pic is pretty big in terms of image size so I am URLing to it

      They did not make their own receivers, they only used salvaged ones. These rifles more than likely saw use during Finland's defense against Russia during the Winter War / Continuation War.

      You have to admit, that is awesome, a piece of history that can be shipped to my door and can be used to harvest game.

      Nope. Apparently, you've chalked up a rifle or a few rifles with poor bores to all Mosins being inaccurate. From the factory, Mosins were required to hit 3 out of 5 shots in a 1" group at 100 meters in order to be deemed fit for service, which is about as accurate as the K98k and M1 Garand.

  20. This pic isn't of my individual rifle, but is a better representation of the type of rifle I have. Yes, the scratch on the receiver is supposed to be there, it's on every AK-style weapon ever.



    Today, I got a new rifle, a Russian Saiga 7.62x39. It's a "sporterized" AK-47 made by Izmash. $378 after sales tax, $349.99 was the sticker price. Not bad for a brand new rifle. It comes with the sling studs imbedded in the stock, a cleaning rod, cleaning kit (jag, brush, some kind of weird poker and a screwdriver) and a little plastic bottle to keep cleaner in or something. It also has the "dovetail" side-mount, all I need to do is buy a base if I want to throw some optics on it, but I probably won't.

    An interesting note, this rifle was made at the very same factory as my Mosin-Nagant M91/30 rifle that was made in 1927! They're brothers in arms, heh.

    It uses a proprietary magazine design, making it incompatible with regular AK-47 magazines, they are, however, still double-stack. Since I live in New York, I can only legally own magazines that hold 10 rounds or less. Fucking things are expensive, like $30 apiece for a 10 round magazine! Oh well.

      Ah, nice. I am just going to get a sidemount for it so I can still use the iron sights.

  21. So, I just found out the Mosin-Nagant M91/30 rifle I got for Christmas is rarer than I originally thought. It is an Izhevsk-made updated Dragoon (an older model updated to the M91/30 specs) dated 1927 with a second date of 1952 (the exact date reads "1927 r /52" (the r stands for the Russian word for God / year). Now, when I first got it, I thought that meant that was when it was refurbished, but it in fact means that it was removed from storage and re-issued, most likely due to rising tensions of the Cold War. Now, when rifles are double-dated, they are commonly marked MO (abbreviation for the Russian words for Ministry of Defense), but mine is NOT marked MO, meaning it was during the rare period when the MO did not exist as it did when it re-issued rifles and marked them.

    Taking this into account, the webmaster of 7.62x54r.net]7.62x54r says that, according to his scale of rarity, my rifle rates a 7 or 8 out of 10, instead of the 4 a regular single date updated Izhevsk Dragoon would be or the 6 of an MO double-dated M91/30. Basically this means that the $99 I paid for it was a good deal, I should have been paying at least $150-180 for it. Pretty neat to discover more about the history of my rifle.

    NOTE : if any of you US citizens are interested in owning a piece of history from WWII, classicarms.us has some very unique rifles, including K98ks, the rifles used by Nazi Germany.

      I snatched one of these from a friend of my dad's for $200. I wanted one because I thought the action was interesting, and it's a great rifle. Was able to get a bunch of surplus ammo, too. Heh, I wonder if mine has an ID tag?

      Take off the buttplate and find out. The action is indeed interesting, they are very excellent rifles, and very unique. I find it awesome that they never fired a shot in anger during the entirety of WWII.

  22. I haven't had time to take a picture of my newest addition to my firearm family, so I'll just steal one from Wikipedia :



    I got a Remington Model 1858 New Army made by Pietta. It's a replica of a Civil War era revolver that would have been found in the hands of soldiers that could afford to privately purchase one. The Remington 1858 New Army was LEGENDARY in its accuracy and sheer durability. There are a lot of Remington 1858s that date back to the Civil War that are still capable of being fired!

    Now for some data. The Pietta Remington 1858 New Army fires .454 diameter projectiles. With a cylinder change, this 1858 New Army (the steel framed model) can safely fire "Cowboy loads" of .45 Long Colt. It has an 8" barrel and is 14" in over-all length. It weighs 2.75 pounds. My particular pistol came with a slight defect. The plunger pin (the plunger is what seats the projectiles in the chamber) was broken, but Loctite Red 262 fixed that right up! I paid $220 for the pistol from Cabela's. Since it is a blackpowder firearm, it was shipped right to my door with no FFL transfer bullshit. Shipping was free due to a sweet, timely deal on Cabela's. If you are interested in Civil War era firearms, I recommend you check out Cabela's, they have great prices.

      Well, IMO (though I know next to nothing about guns) it is a great looking handgun.

      I think Australia (where I am from) has such a different culture in regards to guns. I have never even held a handgun, much less a rifle or an assault rifle or anything like that. Tell the truth, I only know one person who even owns a gun, and it is one of those high level target shooting guns like they use in winter olympic sports. No one else I know has one in their house.

      So actually the thing that stands out the most in that pic is the price tag on the box, coz it highlights something that must be really common to you and really rare to me..... well I'm sure this all sounds really dumb.

      Anyway, it is a great looking gun. That is all that I am qualified to say about it.. :)


      I've never held an assault rifle either. In the USA, to legally own an assault rifle (a fully-automatic firearm, AKA a machinegun) you have to pay a $200 tax to the ATF, fill out a form, get prior permission from the local police department's head and the cheapest transferable (civilian legal, in other words) full-autos are $3,000 Mac-10s.

      But yes, the culture is quite different, though it wasn't always that way. Australia used to have a tradition of firearm ownership, but fears of Communists put an end to that.

      I am sure that the .36 caliber cap and ball revolvers would be legal in Australia, in Australia, you can own a semi-automatic handgun as long as it's in a caliber no greater than .38 (.38 inches of an inch).

      That is probably right. You know more than I do and I live here. I think that the police in Victoria (SE Australia for those who aren't up on their Aussie Geography) use .38 revolvers as their sidearms.

      Tho do you know if that means that you could own a .357 magnum or a Deagle or something like that here? They are apparently very powerful handguns.(I only know about those guns coz I have seen them on the movies.) On account of .357 < .38. Just outta interest.

      Actually, .38 caliber pistols are all .35 caliber (an exception being the .38-40, which is actually .40 caliber). They were originally labeled .38 because they were loaded with heeled base lead bullets, which have the same diameter as the outside of the case (which is .38). In the last decade of the 19th/first decade of the 20th century most ammunition transferred over from heeled base bullets to either uniform diameter cast lead bullets or jacketed bullets. These have the inside diameter of the case, which in the case of .38s was .35. The same thing happened with the .44s, which now actually measure .43.

      Anyway, the great majority of handguns are anemic compared to a shotgun or rifle. The Desert Eagle is possible the most overrated handgun in existance too. To quote a fellow gun enthusiast, "The Desert Eagle weighs almost as much as a Ruger Mini-14 rifle, yet the Mini-14 is more powerful, more accurate, and has a greater ammunition capacity." If you talk about the Desert Eagle to about any gun hobbyist they will laugh. Especially if you refer to it as a "Deagle," which brands someone as a computer gamer wannabe.

      Anyway, back to the .357 Magnum. It is a pretty cool cartridge, but as someone who owns a S&W Model 28 .357, don't expect it to be an earthshaking experience. It is really just a hot .38; which is to be expected, as the .357 is based on a .38 case lengthened by an eighth of an inch and loaded to around 50-75% higher pressure. The nice thing about this is you can shoot .38s out of .357 guns, as they are cheaper and recoil less.

      The magnum doesn't kick excessively (which is actually nice) and is pretty accurate. The most notable feature is the muzzle blast, which resembles a centerfire rifle. However, the actual effect on the target isn't close to a shotgun slug or centerfire rifle. Having bought my S&W intending to hunt deer with it, I personally wouldn't try to kill anything deer-sized with the gun outside 30-40 yards.

      But anyways, to a new shooter I would not reccomend the .357 as a first gun. It is too expensive to shoot, and even though the recoil is not offensive to someone with a moderate amount of experience it would be distracting to a neophyte. Get a .22 instead to learn the basics (ammunition is about a tenth the cost per round compared to .38s, much less the .357s - plus there is negligible recoil), but if you have a bit of experience and are looking for a second pistol the .357 is a great choice, as it can be loaded with several different power levels of ammunition and is quite versatile.

  23. So, my curiosity in D&D was piqued so I decided to check it out. Danarchy was nice enough to help me make a character, a bounty-hunter Ranger named Andros. He even created a special Craft for me (Ammunition)!

    Andros comes from a society quite like many Native American societies with a mixture of Japanese culture as well. Though honor is an expected virtue, its interpretation is slightly different when it comes to the professions of warriors, assassins and bounty hunters in that actions that would normally be called dishonorable are allowed because the actions are justified by another strong cultural value of theirs, striving to perform the best as you can at your profession. This means that normally "dirty" tricks are not looked down upon in these trades. Andros was adopted into a slightly well-off middle-class family, granting him a slightly better education in more esoteric arts (in his village) such as basic chemistry, woodcarving and mathematics. Carrying a common war hatchet, a bow he made himself and a pistol (a rare weapon in his region). Though commonly he hunts criminals for a bounty, he may undertake assassinations, spying and other covert operations.

      Well if there were guns and they were easily manufactured, then logically every army would have guns. Then it wouldn't be a medieval setting so much as an Age of Reason steampunk one.


      Yeah, exactly. EDIT : damnit, forgot to edit this post.

      But armies back then had gunners, they were just a specialized type of troop.

      Did they also have Golems, Goblins, and enchanted items?

      I wouldnt mind an old WW2 British officer's service revolver, actually. Deactivated, naturally, less hoops to jump through.

      Before I clicked I thought it was going to be a gun. But I didn't expect a pistol.

  25. I love getting packages in the mail :

    -A high-polish brass Zippo with an armored case. Sexy lighter, looks gold. I didn't know it, but apparently the insert (the actual lighter, the proper name is the insert) is brass too, I thought it was regular nickle-coated steel.

    -Two magazines for my 995 9mm carbine. Along with the factory magazine, that means I can have 30 rounds ready to go. When I get at least two more mags, I'll be at the sweet spot for now.

      Yes! I remember that!

      I also remember the one where they are making trumpets and they had trumpet noises going while they pounded out their shape. :D
