mail call

I understand this just went in the mail to wind its way towards me: 

Many thanks to Owen at Snake Hound Machine for handling the ordering (from Ares Armor no less… yes, that Ares Armor) and assembly, as well as my incessant and occasionally stupid questions.  Once I throw on my hand guard and muzzle device – both to be revealed in good time – I think that will top this off quite [...]

“walls of the city” at shot show

For a variety of reasons, I was unable to attend this year’s SHOT Show… at least in person.  I was definitely there in spirit, though: 

Many thanks to Owen Martin of Snake Hound Machine for allowing me to honestly say that one of my products has been displayed at a SHOT Show. 

In other news, I do not know why my car keeps telling me that my door is a jar.  No, [...]

ar/ak

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 [...]

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 [...]

i have a thing for bastardizations like this

An AK-pattern-ish rifle that takes STANAG 5.56 magazines, and does so fresh from the factory? Where do I sign?

Unfortunately they are not likely to be imported any time soon, and will not be imported in general in that configuration (specifically the presence of the pistol grip, and possibly the existence of >10-round magazines), but, still, that is a very interesting development indeed. At least to me; my Saiga-12 has shown me that there [...]

our rights are not the only things in danger

All of us look at certain situations through the perspectives of our own experience, and I will freely and openly admit that I considered the aforeposted ammunition and magazine idiocies from the perspective of a consumer, a recreational shooter, and a person who values his individual rights and freedoms.

However, Owen Martin, the proprietor of AllAK47.com and Snake Hound Machine, looks at such things from the perspective of wanting to feed his family; a [...]
