This is going to be another one of those posts wherein the backstory may or probably will not be explained.  You are just going to have to deal with that. 

Speaking on a personal level, I will never again do business with a company called “Texas AK Designs”, who are now apparently owned by / part of “Canis Design Group”.  From my own personal experience, their shipping department is substandard, their customer service is [...]

own a piece of the action

As with so many trade shows, my understanding is that there is not a lot of buying going on at SHOT Show; there is a lot of meeting with people who sell and purchase things, of course, but you generally cannot go in, fork over cash, and walk out with X item. 

Owen Martin, the proprietor of Snake Hound Machine, understands how frustrating it can be to the “want it now crowd” to happen [...]

"gun control" is not going to dig itself out of this one

We have talked before about how easy it is to manufacture firearms out of spare parts and whatever you might find in your average home mechanic’s shop or auto garage, but this… well, this is a first.

Today we bring you the story of an AK-pattern rifle being made out of… a shovel. No, seriously. Read the whole post, I promise it is worth it.

The shovel cost $2. The barrel blank cost $30. [...]

they are kind of ugly when undressed

I will not say I had nothing to do with this ongoing Snake Hound Machine build, but I will say you should probably keep an eye on it – the outcome may surprise you.

In other, related news, saying you will not buy from a business simply because the proprietor refuses to give his consent to be governed has to be one of the stupider things I have heard recently (and given the just-passed [...]

russian origami t-shirts – grab them now!

Two-dozen shirts down, another sixty-odd to go before you all buy as many as you said you would. As if I needed further evidence that online polls are not scientific nor necessarily representative of reality.

In any case, the Russian Origami t-shirts are still for sale, and I still have inventory in all sizes (M-XXXL), so get your order in now! And I do mean that seriously, with not a lot of hyperbole – [...]

this weekend’s products

You may recognize the person "voting from the rooftops" here, but I rather prefer the shooter featured here, here, here, and here.

The photography was, of course, done by the inimitable Oleg Volk and the props, including the Hummer, were provided by Wolf Arms (except the Vera SBS Saiga, which was, of course, provided by Coal Creek Armory), who are coincidentally owned by the same folks as Tennessee Guns International; I only mention the [...]

better half has another reason to dislike obama

… Because now I am seriously considering acquiring a “real” AK-pattern firearm just because I can (and, no, Vera does not count; she may look the same, but damn).

So what brought about this sudden interest? Only Our Glorious President mouthing off and proving himself to be the petty “gun control” authoritarian we always knew him to be:

“I – like most Americans – believe that the Second Amendment guarantees an individual the [...]

and this is why you wear eye protection at the range

No, thankfully, that is not mine, but there is a story. 

I was at Coal Creek Armory sighting in Better Half’s new Magnum Lite rifle (more on that tomorrow) when Gunsmith Shannon emerged from their shop to test-fire another Saiga-12 short-barrel shotgun* (I wonder if I helped with that sale…).  He cranked off a few appropriately noisy rounds next to me, and then disappeared again, only to re-emerge as I was wrapping up.  [...]
