Happy New Year/Year End Review


We had a good year.. well it was only two months ago that I started this blog. Thanks everyone for visiting and commenting on the articles here or on one of the social media’s sites that we publish to.

Gun Owners had a good year for most part unless you live in California, New York or CT. If you live in one of these Police States, then I recommend you move.

The rest of America lost more freedoms as Obama continues to convert Americna into a Police State. Here’s hoping that American’s will wake-up in 2014.

I hope everyone has a Happy and Safe New Year.  If you are going out and not drinking, it might be a good night make sure that you are carrying tonight.  There will probably be many  Drunk maniacs out on New Years Eve. Stay Stafe

Beyonce Mocks Challenger Astronauts in her new video


Freddy’s Note:
I am sure nothing will come out of this, because Liberal Celebrities get to say and do anything they want and the press ignores it.

She should not be using anything related to these hero’s deaths in any of her garbage songs.  This is disgusting and she should be shunned by the American Public forever.

‘Inappropriate in the extreme’:

Astronauts fury as Beyonce samples audio from the tragic 1986 Challenger space shuttle crash in new music video
Beyonce’s new song XO samples audio taken from a NASA public affairs official during the 1986 Challenger crash.

The space shuttle broke apart 73 seconds after take off, resulting in the death of all seven on board  NASA widow June Scobee Rodgers said she was disappointed with Beyonce over the song


Cold Selfish heartless bitch who should get cancer and die painfully

Current and former NASA astronauts are furious over a new Beyonce video that samples audio from the failed 1986 Challenger mission which resulted in the death of all on board.

Her new video for XO features audio taken just after the Challenger broke apart. ‘Flight controllers here looking very carefully at the situation. Obviously a major malfunction,’ a NASA public affairs official said as wreckage fell toward earth on live TV.

The Challenger exploded 73 seconds after taking off from the Kennedy Space Center January 28, 1986. All seven crew members aboard were killed.

ABC News reported ‘former and current NASA astronauts, employees and Challenger family members argue that using it in a pop song mocks the crew’s sacrifice and opens fresh wounds.’

June Scobee Rodgers, the widow of Challenger Space Shuttle Commander Dick Scobee and a founder of the Challenger Center for Space Science Education, told ABC News she was not happy.

‘We were disappointed to learn that an audio clip from the day we lost our heroic Challenger crew was used in the song XO,’ she said.

‘The moment included in this song is an emotionally difficult one for the Challenger families, colleagues and friends,’ she added.

‘We have always chosen to focus not on how our loved ones were lost, but rather on how they lived and how their legacy lives on today.’

Gun of the week number 6: Russian Nagant M1895 Revolver


I admit, I have a fondness for Soviet guns.  I currently own 3 Ak’s, 2 Nagant Pistols, 6 Tokerov models and 5 Makarov caliber pistols and a few Mosin Nagant rifles. But the first Soviet weapon that I bought was The Nagant Revolver. It was the first guns I bought when I got my Curio and Relic Federal Firearms License. This license enables me to buy any gun over 50 years old or guns deemed of a historical nature by the ATF. When I bought these guns, the first one was $99 and the second one was $120. I think they are a little more expensive, but they still can be purchased cheaply, although the prices seem to be rising lately due to short supply.


This gun is over 50 years old and it is historic. I actually have two of them now in the family. One is fine and I bought one for my son a few years ago for Christmas. I just love the look of this gun. The fact that is was designed in 1895 makes it more an interesting artifact.  This gun was designed so soldiers in the field could fix most problems with a hammer and a screwdriver/chisel. One of mine is dated 1940 and the other one is dated 1938.  Loading the gun is interesting, you pull a level down and then you have access to the cylinder so you can load 7 bullets. Then you push the level back up and you are ready to go.  Once the gun is fired, you must again pull the leverl down and this is a rod in front of the gun that you push in to eject each spent casing. It is not a very fast gun to reload.


The M1895 started to be replaced by the Tokarev semi-automatic pistol in 1933, but was still produced and used in great numbers during World War II. Despite being supplemented after 1930 by the Tokarev, it was never fully replaced until the arrival of the Makarov pistol in 1952, Even after that these guns were still sometimes still given to loyal Communist Party members as reward for their loyalty.


Firing the Gun

This is the most inaccurate gun that I have ever fired. If you want to hit the side of a barn at 20 feet, you might get better luck throwing the gun at the barn instead of shooting it. In the War this pistol worked best when you were firing it within a few feat of your target. It works in bought single and double action. The single action is normal. This gun requires a great deal of force in Double Action mode.

The ammo was hard to fine until about a year ago. Last time, I bought some ammo it was 14 surplus soviet cartridge for about $7.  One advantage of the round, if proper brass can be found, is that it leaves the chambers totally clean, and there is no need to scrape lead and powder residue out.


7.62x38mmR (7.62 mm Nagant) cartridge, left, shown next to a .32 S&W Long Cartridge and a .22 LR cartridge for comparison.

The projectile is seated below the mouth of the cartridge, with the cartridge crimp sitting just above the bullet. When fired in the Nagant revolver, the crimp expands into the forcing cone, completing the gas-seal and ostensibly increasing muzzle velocity by approximately 23 m/s (75 ft/s).

The 7.62 mm calibre was chosen, in part, to simplify the tooling used in barrel making and manufacture of projectiles—the Russian service rifle of the time—the Mosin Nagant M91 featured an identical bore diameter, being chambered for the 7.62×54R rifle cartridge.

Description from Wikipedia

Nagant 77

The Nagant M1895 Revolver is a seven-shot, gas-seal revolver designed and produced by Belgian industrialist Léon Nagant for the Russian Empire. The Nagant M1895 was chambered for a proprietary cartridge, 7.62x38R, and featured an unusual “gas-seal” system, in which the cylinder moved forward when the gun was cocked, to close the gap between the cylinder and the barrel, providing a boost to the muzzle velocity of the fired projectile and allowing the weapon to be suppressed (an unusual ability for a revolver)

Technical characteristics

The on-gas seal revolvers have a small gap (known as a flash gap) between the cylinder and the barrel; the small gap between the cylinder and barrel is necessary to allow the revolver’s cylinder to revolve, presenting a new, loaded chamber for firing. This necessitates that the bullet jump the gap when fired, which may have an adverse effect on accuracy, especially if the barrel and chamber are misaligned, and also presents a path for the escape of high-pressure and high-temperature gases from behind the bullet. Expensive revolvers such as Korth and Manurhin are hand-fitted, keeping the gap to a minimum. Mass-produced revolvers such as Smith and Wesson may have a gap as large as .25 mm. The M1895 has a mechanism which, as the hammer is cocked, first turns the cylinder and then moves it forward, closing the gap between the cylinder and the barrel. The cartridge, also unique, plays an important part in sealing the gun to the escape of propellant gases. The bullet is deeply seated, entirely within the cartridge case, and the case is slightly reduced in diameter at its mouth. The barrel features a short conical section at its rear; this accepts the mouth of the cartridge, completing the gas seal. By sealing the gap, the velocity of the bullet is increased by 50 to 150 ft/s (15 to 45 m/s). This feature also eliminates the possibility of injury through the dangerous expansion of gases from the cylinder behind the barrel, which are easily capable of severing a finger if the user holds the gun incorrectly (with a finger positioned in front of the cylinder during fire) – a noted safety-issue in conventional revolvers.[5]

History and usage

The M1895 revolver was used extensively by the Russian Imperial Army and later by the Soviet Union after the Russian Revolution. In Russian service, it was known for its extreme sturdiness and ability to withstand abuse. As one former Imperial Russian officer stated, “if anything went wrong with the M1895, you could fix it with a hammer”.[citation needed]

It was widely employed by the Bolshevik secret police, the Cheka, as well as its Soviet successor agencies, the OGPU and NKVD. In the police role, it was frequently seen with a cut-down barrel to aid in concealment by plainclothes agents. Despite the advent of the more modern Soviet TT pistol, the M1895 remained in production and use throughout World War II.

Report: NSA Intercepting Laptops Ordered Online, Installing Spyware


Freddy’s Note:

I have always recommended completely reformatting any new laptop that you may buy. I used to also do this with any company issued laptop when I worked for Computer Security companies.

But this new revelation that NSA Special TAO groups will actual divert companies purchases of brand named laptops and install spyware on them after they are shipped by the vendor and before they are received by the purchaser.  Now I used to work for several of the largest security companies in the world and I from 2005 to 2009, I taught several classes at 4 different NSA Facilities.   I have known that privacy has not existed for years.  But even I am surprised by this recent revelation.

Report via  Der Spiegel

Based on internal NSA documents, reveals that the NSA, in conjunction with the CIA and FBI, has begun intercepting laptops purchased online in order to install (quite literal) spyware and even hardware on the machines. The NSA terms this “interdiction.” Agents divert shipments to secret warehouses, carefully open the packages, install the software and/or hardware, and send them on their way.

According to the report, this operation is carried out by the NSA’s elite hacking unit, or TAO—not to be confused with the much less imposing Taoism—though there are few details on the scope or targets of the program.

The spy agency reportedly has backdoor access to numerous hardware and software systems from prominent tech companies such as Cisco, Dell, and Western Digital, among others. The NSA can even exploit Microsoft Windows error reports to find weak spots in compromised machines in order to install Trojans and other viruses.

USA Today Poll on Banning weapons that Look Like Miltary Style Rifles


Looks Like Military UZI but it is not. Just a semi-automatic rifle

My UZI carbine that I built through a series on this site looks like the real original UZI. Except it is semi-automatic and has a longer barrel to adhere to the ATF regulations. It fires a bullet 1 time each time the trigger is pressed, like every other rifle used for sport or hunting or self defense.

There is a poll at USATODAY right now. The question is whether “military style assault weapons” should be banned.

The reality is that Assault weapons, by definition are select fire weapons capable of fully automatic fire.  As such these are already heavily regulated under the NFA and nearly impossible for a “common citizen” to own.

Due to the NFA regulations they cost upwards of $20,000 and require a years worth of legal hoops to acquire. 

So, what this poll is really asking is if firearms that “look” like military style assault weapons should be banned.  Because as well all know, the scarier something looks the more dangerous

Everyone should vote for no.

At the time I write this No is at 91%


Navy Seals court martialed for giving Terrorist leader a bloody lip

Obama and his liberal thugs continue to destroy the military. Could a Military coup be in the future for the US?

BUNKERVILLE | God, Guns and Guts Comrades!

We know what the Obama regime has been doing to our military leaders. Obama gets rid of more Generals.

One by one, eliminating any of them who apparently don’t sing from the same song book. The latest attack on these brave Navy Seals tell us all we need to know. Now demoralizing our finest fighting men.

Navy SEALs, Matthew McCabe,  and Jonathan Keefe caught one of the Al-Qaeda killers who brutally murdered 4 American contractors in 2004. The Navy SEALs reward? Court martial…

On the one hand, four Blackwater contractors were murdered and beheaded as they pulled security in a convoy that was attempting to deliver food.

On the other hand, Al-Isawi had a small cut on his lip that a doctor would later testify appeared to have been self-inflicted.

Don’t Answer The Door Post Apocalypse

In the Suburbs, people never think twice about opening the door. If someone rings my doorbell in the middle of the night, I am holding my Beretta 92 when I go to answer it at a minimum. Or maybe my new UZI


Most people today think nothing of opening their doors to their homes in your typical suburban neighborhood when the doorbell rings or there is a knock at the door.  People assume it’s a neighbor, or a package delivery, etc, etc.  While it is still prudent to make sure you know who is at the front door before you open it; post apocalypse it takes on a whole different outlook.

In a post apocalyptic world; should there come a knock on your front door, of wherever you are calling home, do not answer it.  Why; similar to what happens in countries where wars are a common occurrance, once someone hears a homeowner respond to the knock from the other side of the door; they send some rapidly fired bullets through the door injuring or killing the occupant. Then they proceed to break in and take control of the home.

Why do I carry a gun: To the Mall of America -Continuing Series


Mark Andrew after the beating

Freddy’s Note: This is a continuing series of reasons to carry a gun. All the innocent people in this series have been attacked in public places or their own homes. See the whole series here.

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The runner-up in the Minneapolis mayoral election is recovering after being robbed and brutally beaten Thursday night at the Mall of America.
Mark Andrew, 63, was at a Starbucks inside the mall at around 7 p.m. Thursday when a man grabbed his phone off his table and ran off.

When Andrew went after him, he was tackled by two teenage girls – aged 18 and 17 — one of which began beating him with a billy club. During the attack, they told Andrew, “We’re going to kill you,” police say. Andrew was left with a large gash on his head that required nine stitches. He has since been released from the hospital.

Andrew said Friday that he chased after the thief, because he’s not a bystander by nature.
“If somebody is gonna do that to me or somebody else, I’m not a bystander by nature I’ll go in and fight,” he said.


Teen Age Punk

The two women who attacked Andrew were arrested and are in custody. The 18-year-old was identified as Letajia Shapree Cutler-Cain, of Brooklyn Park. She is pictured above and is being held pending felony charges of aiding and abetting aggravated robbery.
Police are still searching for the male suspect.

Andrew’s phone was found Thursday by shoppers.
