AN EASY “W”

An Easy “W”

 

I must have watched this movie half a dozen times growing up as a kid and like the author, yes, the ideal presented (using the U.S. Military to eradicate Drug Cartels) seemed like a perfectly legit and logical thing to do.

You see one of the MANY  problems we have in Modern America is folks do not want to admit that the REAL threat to our Safety and Security as a Nation is not halfway around the world in Ukraine but (at least for me as a Texan) is actually 490 miles away at the Southern Border with Mexico.

490 Miles driving time is roughly 7 hrs from my Front Door.

It’s called PERSPECTIVE Folks.

And the only way to get it is to remove your Head out of Your Ass.

 

Know Your Guns: History of the East German Makarov

HISTORY OF THE EAST GERMAN MAKAROV

 

When I was hot and heavy into Curio and Relic collecting fifteen or so years back I had several different flavors of Makarov, including a true East German PM (with original DDR markings) a Polish P-64, A Hungarian FEG PA-63 and a very rare Bulgarian PPK clone.

As with all Eastern Block C&R Military pistols, the double action trigger on Mak’s were atrociously bad, somewhere between 15 and 25 pounds. This was a purposeful design however to keep peasant conscripts from shooting their own dicks off.

Other than that, they were a real pleasure to shoot with a caliber I would describe as a “.380 ACP on growth hormones”.

 

 

U.S. Army Get’s New Rifles as it Circles Down the WOKE Drain

Behold, I Make All things New!

 

I guess giving new rifles to the troops is a consolation prize for all the Diversity and Tranny training they will have to attend.

No Seriously, the upgrade in caliber is a PLUS.

Never been a fan of 5.56 for many reasons.

Now in the words of Crazy Earl from Full Metal Jacket:

 

“All We Need now is an enemy worth shooting!”

 

Know Your WW2 History: Axis vs AA Guns

AXIS VS. AA GUNS: HISTORY OF AMERICAN ANTI-AIRCRAFT WEAPONS

 

Even from the first moments of America’s sudden involvement in World War II, U.S. anti-aircraft (AA) gunners were in the thick of the fight. John W. Finn, US Navy Chief Aviation Ordnanceman, won the Medal of Honor during the Japanese attacks on Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941.

As Japanese planes attacked his post at Naval Air Station Kaneohe Bay, he fought back from an exposed .50 caliber machine gun stand. He hammered away at the strafing and bombing Japanese aircraft.

 

SKS Collecting And Identification: A Buyer’s Guide

SKS Collecting And Identification: A Buyer’s Guide

 

I had a C&R License (FFL 03) for around twenty years off and on back in the “golden era” when you could find plenty of German and Yugo Mausers, Lee- Enfields, Mosin-Nagants, Swiss K-31’s and Norinco and Russian SKS’s all for very reasonable prices.

It was a great way to learn about firearms, improve your gusnmithing skill-set (I taught myself how to repair Mausers this way) and amass a nice “collection” of very usable military weaponry including pistols and revolvers.

One of the many perks of having a C&R License is you get the weapon delivered directly to your home without the need of a Gun Dealer as a middleman. I cannot tell you the excitement of seeing the Big Brown Truck of Joy come rumbling up the road!
