    Oleg, can you please give me a rough translate on this video. Evanix appears to be coming to market with a semi-auto high power air rifle but I would like to know (if it is mentioned in the video) the ETA to the US market, the projected price and the available calibers. Thank you. BTW: Your blog is a favorite in our house.

    Hello Oleg,

    I know you are well connected to the military fashion industry,and I was wondering if you could help me. I am sure you are familiar with the Monen Labe velcro rockers. Well, I am trying and have tried to take a company that will make one in the same fashion, but stated Pog Mo Thoin(irish for: kiss my a$$).

    If you can help either get me in contact or direct me to anybody who could assist me I would greatly apprciate it.

    Thank you

  7. Amazing photographs!! As pretty as the subjects are (metal, polymer & human) I really enjoy the clean lighting and composition in most of the images!

  8. Hello Oleg-

    I hope all is well!

    I was reading your site and I really enjoy the content and blog posts you have written on the Guns and Ammunition industry.

    I have a client that sells Firearms, Ammunition, Tactical Gear, and Preparedness items and I was wondering if you would be able to take a look at their website and give an honest review about their products. The products range from handguns, AR-15’s, knives, survival gear, weapon attachments, flashlights and more.

    We have some awesome content we would like to share with your readers regarding the companies monthly gun giveaways, gun financing program, and also we are looking to provide ” A day at the Range” hosted by our client. At the range you will be able to shoot a variety of firearms.

    I think this type of post would be great for you and your readership.

    If you are interested I would be happy to forward along the name of the company.

    Let me know what you think.

    Best Regards,

    Mr. Volk,

    I write for a non-commercial conservative/libertarian blog: therealrevo.com. Occasionally I would like to use one of your images to illustrate a point. I would give you full credit for the image. Is this possible? If so, what would you like from me before I use one?

  10. Hello old friend,

    I hope life is well and that we may catch up soon. This applet is a bit jittery so please email back for normal conversation.

    I’m really interested in the Leader 50 rifle and I was hoping you would have a range report of a production version by now. Do you have a new timeline?

    It was a pleasure to meet you.

    Recommend you find Lock, Stock and Barrel in Franklin, TN. Tom Marker is the owner and gunsmith. He usually has something in his store that would make an interesting subject for your photography.
