The Visit of the Beast

Two-thirds of the way to a million visits and naturally it's to a guest post... the most popular post on my blog.

Gotta Have It

I've seen this meme on over half a dozen gun blogs. "What gun would you buy if price and practicality was of no concern?" Well, besides an NR-30 (the second-best 30-mm cannon in the Pacific) and the MiG-19/F-6 carrying it, I'd start with the H&K MP-510, the iconic sub-machine gun, chambered in the lethal 10-mm round.

Gotta have a Thompson SMG, screw the compensator and the drum magazine, I want the platoon sergeant variant with stick mags!

Who doesn't love the M-2 Browning .50 machine gun? Dead Nazis and dead Commies, that's who! Now, do I want to mount that on an M-3 Half-Track or a more modern HMMV?

The Webley is an ugly chunk of bad-ass that I can't resist coveting. Must resist the Tim Taylor Tool Time Monkey Noises....

As ugly as is the Webley, the Colt Python is its polar opposite, the luscious pinnacle of the revolver-makers' art and science. If Colt could figure out way to make them again without going broke, you know they would.

Thanks to the BinkerMom&Dad, I can finally get my libertarian brown jacket/wookie suit on!

I know I can probably watch these on-line, but if I'm on-line, I've got lotsa other things distracting me.

Awesome Shooting Weather

For the January Cactus Multi-Gun, we wore jackets in the morning, but shed them by shooting time. The sun stayed out of the scattered cloud cover for most of the match.

We welcomed some new competition to the match, as well as some old friends. Jon "goobered up" a few of his stages while I ran hot and cold. A fun time was had by all.

Happy Birthday, Binker!

BinkerDad got one for Christmas with which to provide instruction. Binker's came with a can of pink spray paint.

A REAL M-1 Carbine!

My buddy Chief surprised me with a wonderful gifty this weekend, an M-1 Carbine! He knew I had one or two Universal carbines from our days in West Texas a decade or three ago and picked up a little war-era Saginaw M-1 Carbine in a private sale. Since he already had an IBM carbine of comparable quality, he decided to spread the hoplo-happiness to me, rather than start an M-1 menagerie (he is shopping for another gun safe though, so who knows?).

What did Santa bring you?

Ringing in the New Year

The BinkerDad and BinkerMom helped me scare away the evil remnants of 2011 with well-controlled celebratory gunfire. Somehow, the BinkerMom isn't happy just plinking with a .22 any more.
