not like i could compete with it

As I said on the Facebooks and Twitters a few days ago, one of the fun advantages of making your own holsters is the ability to do crazy things you would never actually ask someone else to make for you.

And, sometimes, they work:

Obviously this is not an everyday carry holster, but I contend that neither is that an everyday carry gun (though a friend tells me they are increasingly popular [...]

the slippery slope of gun control

I would like to take a moment today to extend my sincere thanks to the legislatures of both New York State and Connecticut for proving, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that "gun control" is, in truth and fact, a slippery slope.

Anti-rights cultists come absolutely unhinged every time you mention the possibility of "gun control" itself being a slippery slope, and tend to immediately decry such mutterings as prima facie logical fallacies; it [...]

because it is shiny

I have, and need, no better excuse than that for this: 

What’s that, you say?  It looks remarkably like something from some movie or television series you might have seen once upon a time? 

I have no idea what you are talking about. 

None at all. 

In all seriousness, this is far from an every-day carry rig, for a variety of reasons, but the TT-33 is far from [...]

product of a bored sunday

So I spent most of yesterday blowing the not-insubstantial mass of leaves provided to our not-insubstantial back yard courtesy of the not-insubstantial forest behind our house, and I vacuumed the downstairs this morning (when the cats start sneezing on their own dust bunnies, it is about time to do that); the upshot of all of this is that my right hand has been functionally reduced to a “mewling quim”, to quote the inimitable Loki (look [...]

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.  [...]

they do not call them "compliance devices" for nothing

If you see this image show up attached to a comment… 

… I probably wrote it.

the short verdict

At 1138 today, 1 With a Bullet made the correct guess of "Short Barrel Saiga", and, in fairness, lucusloc was this close on the very first picture, but he went a slightly different direction with his guess.

Anywise, here is the new toy:

Not my best work, but this week has been crazy busy at work, so I have not had a chance to take any more pictures… you can [...]

you know you have too much money when

What the hell is inconel and why would I pay more than some AR-15 uppers for a muzzle brake made from it?

Folks are, of course, more than welcome to spend their money on whatever their little hearts desire (and they apparently do, given the muzzle brake is sold out), but… damn.
