Dangerously bad ammunition (now with updated video)

I posted this video when it became clear that the problems with OATH ammunition are the result of a systematic disregard for quality control. After the first batch of 12ga squibs, they assured me it was limited to one batch … Continue reading

Why not both?

I keep seeing comments along the lines of: “Instead of telling women to carry guns, teach men not to rape.” Why should the two measures be exclusive of each other? The same applies to self-defense at home: 911 on the … Continue reading

A quiet day in nature

I love Tennessee Autumn…mid-November with 70*F weather. The targets we set up in the woods get populated with lead and copper, but without our ears getting a beating. This rifle is one of five SU16s built by keltec in 300 … Continue reading

A roll in the hayloft with a Czech beauty

UK59 (“universal machinegun”) in 7.62x54R shows obvious ZB26/Bren features, but adds a unique cocking with the movable pistol grip. It also has the infamous shoulder thingie that goes up. My friend tells me that hay bales are actually quite good … Continue reading

Radom P64
