Four for Fighting: The Greatest Quartet of Combat Shotguns

 

A Look Back at the Heavyweight Champions of Combat Shotty’s:

  • Winchester Model 1897

  • Browning A5

  • Remington Model 11

Here is a fascinating article regarding why Germany wanted to ban the Winchester Model 1897 during WW1.

The reality is the ruling elite fear the citizenry still and because the citizenry is armed, they cannot just massacre ideological dissidents at will. Instead, they have to get crafty and do it through things like an experimental vaccine and call it something scary like COVID. Those with real power and in the national government do not represent us. They hate us and seek to return humanity to serfdom under their rule and undo centuries of progress made by the average citizen to have a better life. This is all by design, it is not an accident.

Keep your powder dry, because it is the only thing that keeps them partially in check.

God bless you and God bless Dixie.

Pistol Corner: Failure to Extract – When Tap, Roll & Rack does not work

Failure to extract – when tap, roll, rack does not work

 

When you train, train to clear malfunctions with the use of dummy rounds.

Although this type of stoppage is rare, it does happen and if you don’t train for it you will be that much slower clearing it when the chips are down and your * is on the line.

Prepare Accordingly.

 

 

Practical-Tactical: Do Weapon Mounted Lights Make You a Target?

Do Weapon Mounted Lights Make You a Target?

 

As the author points out the answer to this question is LIGHT DISCIPLINE.

If you are going to mount a light on your carry firearm, TRAINING  with that Weapon Mounted Light is imperative!

This is why I don’t agree with Massad Ayoob when he says NOT to use a Weapon Mounted Light to search.

It all comes down to training folks.

Prepare Accordingly and Train Often.

 

Know Your WW1 Weapons: Germany’s MG08 Heavy Machine Gun

Germany’s Heavy Machine Gun of WWI: The MG08

 

All you former infantryman out there might find this fact jaw dropping:

“The MG08 machine gun itself weighed approximately 60 pounds. Combined with its “Sled” (or Sledge) mount that used four legs, the whole affair weighed around 140 pounds, excluding the water can and ammunition supply. Along with the sled mount were extra barrels, tools, and oil containers, all attached to the sled. A team of four soldiers was required to move the entire gun and accessories.”

This BEAST weighed in at 140 pounds, not inclduing the water can, sled and ammo!!

This thing earned it’s name as a HEAVY machine Gun for sure.
