I got one of the new CT Railmaster Pro laser/light combos in the mail! Right now I'm using it to torment a kitten, but I do anticipate mounting it on a gun real soon. Off the cuff, I like it that it's small, I like (I think) the tap-on, tap-off feature and I like it that it's really really hard to accidentally get to the disco light strobe function. More later...
Thanks to a somewhat bizarre study from the real estate site Estately, I have discovered that Colorado is the third most likely state in which to survive a zombie apocalypse. We came in just behind Wyoming and Numhah One, Alaska. I bet we'd'a been number 2 if that idiot of a Governor hadn't signed the magazine capacity limit law. We came in big on guns and triathlons, which says it all...I think. Anyway, I'm bored with zombies...so bored, in fact, I won't even drink green tea.
I've been meaning to link to this piece on the B&T VP-9 pistol from my friend Jonathan Ferguson over at the National Firearms Centre in England (writing in The Firearm Blog). Jonathan calls it a 21st Century Welrod, that iconic World War 2 sentry removal and assassination pistol (the guys showed me their collection of Welrods when I was over at the NFC for SHOOTING GALLERY last December).
Curiously, B&T are marketing it as a humane dispatch pistol that won’t disturb the neighbours, hence the designation ‘VP’, for ‘Veterinary Pistol’. Whilst I’m sure the original users would appreciate the irony of a Welrod so described, their targets were of course Nazi soldiers rather than ailing animals.Love to have one. I do have pretty close to a totally silent rifle...a T/C Contender with a 20-inch barrel threaded for my old Tac-Sol suppressor. With Gemtechs or .22 Shorts, the only sound is the hammer falling.
Finally, if you haven't had your good cry for the day, I refer you to this comix by Carey Pietsch:
