Missing vz58 carbine

I can’t locate my vz58. Asking my friends on the off chance somebody has seen it around my house or at the range. I’ve looked around closely, and so have a couple of friends, I am not seeing it. I also don’t recall lending it out, so I am at a loss for ideas as to its fate. Need it rather urgently for photos.

Once an object of desire…

…until the first time I tried it.

Turned out, Beretta 12S is an ergonomic nightmare, with badly designed sights and safety. The back-pressure from the sound suppressor also threw gunk into the user’s face from the ejection port. Had submachine guns been in wide civilian use, they would have improved a lot quicker than in our reality…there’s no substitute for a large non-institutional user base when it comes to refining a product.

“Because it’s fun!”

While many learn to shoot for practical reasons, most get into it for fun. But the entry barrier can be high, not just in regulatory and technical aspects, but in the lack of knowledge or confidence to try a potentially dangerous hobby. That’s no different from learning to ride a horse or a motorcycle.

So let your friends have fun by taking care of the process for them at first. We can always use more allies and even just non-hostile political bystanders.

Civilized social intercourse over gunfire

First date included a little 75 to 100 yard plinking with a custom fast-twist Volquartsen rifle. Neither of them missed much, supported further out or offhand at 50 yards.

The now-discontinued Gemtech G5-22 mimicked a centerfire suppressor in size, so it was extra-effective on subsonic rimfire ammunition. The expected bolt movement noise was actually nearly unnoticeable. Attenuated muzzle blast didn’t get in the way of the conversation, and clink of the steel targets was faint enough from the distance to not be distracting.

The quiet was also a plus for the neighbors whose houses were under a hundred yards away. Hearing Protection Act can’t become law fast enough!

Trijicon Accupoint 2.5-12x scope might look like an overkill for rimfire, but it has a forgiving eyebox, close focus/parallax correction and really clear optics.
