Five most wanted ...

Robb ax'ed. Og chimes in.
Here's my nickles worth

I usually have a list goin'.
Changes as time goes by. Adding my two cents.
Like Robb, I like recoil ... to a point. The Guru had a word to describe this phenom, damned if i can find it. Nonetheless ... with budget being no concern ...

  1. Springfield Armory Range Officer. Cuz I only have one 1911!
  2. Savage Model 110BA in 338 Lapua. Cuz brass cost is of no concern.
  3. SA 58 DSA's version of a folding stock FAL. MBR for the moto-cycle
  4. S&W Model 24 Classic Carbon Steel and Walnut. Just like God meant handguns to be.
  5. Ohio Ordnance Works Model 1918 A3 SLR. Cuz I don't have a 30-06! I'm beginning to see some real shortcomings in my armory!
30-06! Same as Caje carried!

Y'know ... I'm thinking this should be broken up ... top 5 long guns and top 5 handguns for an overall top 10.

Infamous firearms

h/t Uncle

A Thompson submachine gun and a shotgun left behind when Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow fled Joplin in a shootout with the law in 1933 brought $210,000 at auction Saturday. The Joplin Globe
 A small crowd of 150 people. A 15 minute event. 5 bidders.
Reuters
 Bonnie 'n Clyde muggin' it up for the camera. Don't think that's a 1897 Winchester she's wielding.

12 gauge Model 1897 Winchester?

Nah ... here's whatta 1897 looks like ...

Winchester 1897 Model

3D Zombie Targets

Now with Zombie Blood!
ht The Firearm Blog

http://zombieindustries.com/
After a quick visit to their site ... my conclusion that this is the pinnacle of target technology.

They gots yer Zombie NAZI target.

They gots yer Ossama target.

They gots yer North Korea Soldier target

They gots one labeled LEO ...

Thought it'd look more like this.

Just a marketing thought ... How about a ZOMBIE POLITICIAN target?
Ok ... not a zombie ... an alien overlord politician

Bet it'd sell like hotcakes.
'Cept using it could be prob'ly prosecuted as an act of terrorism.

Targeting Insects

Another piggyback post from Precision Shooter

Guess there was a benchrest club out east.
They had a range that had target butts across a body of water from the firing line.
Neat.

One of the members organized fly matches.
Thats right. Flies. Insects. At 100 yards.

Thought it sounded cool. Reworked the target.
Match rules on the target.
Give it a try sometime. Enjoy.

Flower Power

H/T to ENDO

Those of us of a certain vintage, remember when the phrase "flower power" entered the vernacular.
The awesome power ... of flowers, was perhaps illustrated best by this famous photo from 1967.

Flower Power, 1967, The Washington Evening Star Photo by Bernie Boston
Anti-War protesters making M1's into flower vases.

Now ... fast forward forty years or so. Witness the awesomeness of Flower FirePower

Happy New Year! May 2012 bring you bouquet's!
