Georgia Heat

May 23, 2015 A few of lessons learned today at the range: 1. No "tasty/greasies" before going to an outdoor range in the Georgia mid-day sun. Choosing to do so interrupts your 200m time with 200m sprints to the porta-potti that probably doubles for a foundry... 2. Hydrate. See lesson #1. 3. At some point …

Product Review: Boyt Harness Alaskan Series Shotgun Case (Medium)

April 7, 2015 In keeping with the canvas look, I decided to go with the this soft case instead of the previously reviewed one. The way I saw it, if it failed to work with the M44, then it would be a new home for the 590A1... So, does it fit? Does a grossly overweight …

Just for the sake of having yet another "product review", I picked up several of both. The clips on the left, I shall refer to as "sweet сало (salo) smoothness", or "s3", for it …

What Started it All…

After several weeks of research, I had joined a Facebook page devoted to the Mosin Nagant in search of interaction with other owners of this venerable rifle.
