Know Your Weapons: The Astra 600 – Old School Cool

The Astra 600 – Old School Cool

 

In my 20 or so years collecting I only came across an Astra  600 once, and I passed on it because the guy was way too proud of it and would not budge on the price, primarily because of the German markings.

I regret that now. This model has serious history!

 

 

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”.

 

 

Why Generation X Probably Hates You

WHY GENERATION X PROBABLY HATES YOU

 

“Generation-X has been cleaning up behind Boomers for decades, while Millennials walk behind Gen-X proverbially throwing mud back on the floor.  Gen X is rightfully angry. 

We were raised on Guns-and-Roses, Hank Williams Jr., smashmouth professional football, military movies, and cartoons whereby the main characters routinely blew up.  What we see are old hippies and young trannies.

Thankfully, however, our children, Gen-Z, is emerging as the most conservative demographic cohort in generations.  They are still young.  Their brand of conservatism seems to have a nationalist vibe.  If we can survive the destructive impulses of Boomers, we might be OK.”

 

Humans Were Actually Apex Predators For 2 Million Years, Evidence Shows

Humans Were Actually Apex Predators For 2 Million Years, Evidence Shows

 

Hunting has always been an integral part of our genetic makeup.

The more modern man strays away from it the more health problems he is going to have.

You see it’s not just the lean meat you get from the hunt, it’s the PROCESS of obtaining it, the actual mechanics of the hunt itself: physical exercise, dexterity, skill, weapon mastery, etc. all these things contribute to the physical (and mental) health of the person and in the process sharpens their ability to protect themselves and their tribe.

I can promise you that if a larger percentage of modern society were forced to HUNT and PROCESS their own Meat we would see a dramatic decrease in cases of obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure and General health problems associated with sedentary lifestyles, aka couch pototates.

I am a huge fan of Bow Hunting and in the clip below Ted Nugent, aka “The Nuge” gives a brief synopsis on how Modern Bowhunting was born.

Really Fascinating Stuff.

 

 

Know Your History: Pol Pot and the Great Reset

Pol Pot and the Great Reset

 

Of all the things which happened in Cambodia, none are too far from happening in the west, even today. In particular, we have seen our leaders more than willing to enter contracts that guarantee a ‘great reset’ of culture, economy, and society.

This idea is not new, nor has it ever actually worked successfully. 

The idea of a cultural reset – for the uninformed – is blatant Marxian theory in the open.

The thought leaders behind this idea – such as businessman Klaus Schwab – may simply see this theory as an effective element in ‘bettering’ society, but history has taught us otherwise.
