Benelli Shorty

Yet another short shotgun I am lusting after. This one is from Benelli.

--I wonder if they make holsters for it.

Serbu Super Shorty 12 Gauge

As you know. I am a sucker for a short shotgun. This vid also explains why these are defined as an AOW ($5) and not an SBS ($200). If you really like recoil you might need one.

--Only 3 round capacity and a bit expensive for a novelty gun.

How Many Peeps Will Stop A Bullet?

I saw this over at TBolts place. I will have to watch all her vids.


--I hate Peeps. HATE. THEM.

VA Gun Trader

I have been enjoying the hell out of VA Gun Trader this week.

If you have never checked it out, and live in VA, You really should.

To do it right you really need to go there daily and keep an eye out. It also gives you a realistic sense on the value of a firearm.

--The discussions can also be a hoot.

Teddy Roosevelt

I was at the Smithsonian National Art Museum today and was suprised to see a rifle on display in the Portrait Gallery.

I should have known. I look to the left and there is the Portrait of President Roosevelt.

This was Teddy's Springfield. 

This was one of three firearms he purchased for his hunting trip to British East Africa.

--It was a beautiful day.

Robot Sentries

A friend sent me a pic via email.

I would love to build a remote controlled sentry. Here are the features of this that I like:
  • Foundation is an AR15 pistol flt top
  • 300 round, dual drum beta mag
  • Suppressor
  • EOTech sight
  • Remote camera through the EOTech
  • Powerful LED light
The parts I would have to make:
  • Fire control
  • Targeting control
While researching the legal traps I could even use an Airsoft AR as the foundation.

--I wonder if EOTechs have an always on mode?

Another DYI Gun Safe

Here is another hidden gun safe that would be good for a dusty corner of your garage.

This not only locks, it has really good internal volume.

It could even be plugged in so it could have interior lights, dehumidifier and maybe even some security systems.

I would also remove all the compressor and motor gear and install a drawer in the bottom.

--Good camouflage! 

Gun Free Zone

Last night the Church I have attended voted to become a Gun Free Zone.

Also known as a, Miller Free Zone.

I have been a member there for over 20 years. Intolerance and political bigotry has become acceptable behavior there in recent years.

I had made my views clear to the congregation, minister and the board of directors. It's easy to leave with my children grown and my wife of the same exact opinion as me.

In an ironic turn of events, I suddenly have thousands of dollar freed up in my budget that will now go to the 2nd Amendment Foundation and a Lifetime Membership to the NRA.

--More time for coffee and bacon on Sundays...

DIY: Gun Safe

A Friend sent me this image of a Do It Yourself locking gun safe.

I have a tall, five drawer filing cabinet that I could see being refit like this.

As I was looking at mine I might have seen a design flaw. If you make these mods and fill it up with long guns, then slide open the drawer, it could tip.

The advantage of the file cabinet normally is that you open only one drawer at a time.

To make this work you would really need to bolt the whole thing to the floor or the wall behind.

I can't say that this would even be good hidden storage. Burglars would still open it. This lock would slow them down but not stop them.

--This would be useful for keeping your kids out.

Bug Out Vehicle

Are you ready for the pending Zombie Apocalypse?  This guy is! Seen in WIRED!

--If only I had enough cash.

Want: KRISS Vector

I have had this gun on my want list for a long time. Sounds like they have worked most of the bugs out!

--I like this guys range too!

Gun Porn: Short Shotgun

I know they are not very useful, but I still love me some short shotguns. One of the basic problems with a short shotgun is their ammo capacity. I saw this puppy on and thought it would be awesome with a pistol grip!

Mag fed is awesome. I would pistol grip this and add a single point sling and have a pile of fun!

--I have that shoulder stock on another shotgun already!
