Improving Sub200mk2 further

Originally published at VolkStudio Blog. You can comment here or there.

The muzzle of mk2 is threaded, but 9mm doesn’t really need a flash hider. So I added a linear compensator aka noise re-direction device.

Works very well: the report becomes a lot less noticeable, especially with subsonic ammunition which doesn’t produce a secondary shockwave.

Accuracy observation: 100-147gr ammunition works well. 75gr or 158gr don’t, and neither do 50gr hypervelocity arounds. Lighter bullets show the best velocity gain, which means 100-110gr are probably optimal for the combination of accuracy, terminal effect and lighter felt recoil.

Where could I find a guide on setting up remote control of that camera? The manual supplied with it isn’t very clear.

These people are bad credit risks. Этим людям в долг не верить.

Originally published at VolkStudio Blog. You can comment here or there.

I try to help people when I can. Usually, the help is with connections, images and data, sometime with money. Some people end up disappointing me and never paying back. That’s usually aggravated by a lot of lying and broken promises. I am going to highlight three such people:

Hailey Sheldon (nee Patrick), a Nashville model. I lend her a modest sum nearly three years ago with the promise of repayment in two months. I then had over twenty promises of various full or partial repayment, including texts “I am on the way with the money”. She did pay off 10% of the debt in April, but has done nothing since. Given the number of missed appointments for photo shoots (including those with generous budgets) and the number and the variety of broken promises of repayment, Hailey comes across as a pathological liar who should not be trusted with any resources that you can’t afford to just hand over. That’s too bad, as she has talent.

John Bergonzi, my former student from ITT Technical. I lend him a slightly larger sum back in 2008, having believed his sob story about impending eviction of him and his family. Near as I can tell, he skipped town soon thereafter, having borrowed from several other people as well. Listing him just for the sake of completeness.

Hopefully, this information would save our common acquaintances the trouble of discovering the same traps in person. Detailed documentation on all three is available.

Я стараюсь помогать людям по возможности. Иногда, я разочаровываюсь в них.

Надеюсь, эта информация поможет нашим общим знакомым не попадаться лично. Подробная документация в наличии.

Just saw a review of Legally Armed, a book for which I did quite a few photos. On the same page, was a link to another book, Florida Firearms – Law, Use & Ownership, with my photo on the cover.

Movies to avoid

Originally published at VolkStudio Blog. You can comment here or there.

Suite Française (2014) — starts with an interesting premise but goes nowhere with it. The characters range from inconsistent to cartoony to unrealistic. It has all the elements of good film without actually turning into a satisfying, coherent whole.

The Dawns are Quiet Here (2015) — A remake of a differently flawed 1972 movie, with over the top special effects, bad acting and rather unrealistic props. Lousy weapons handling across the board, including the supposedly elite special forces group. Special prize for most characters mumbling unintelligibly.

Good use for a laser

Originally published at VolkStudio Blog. You can comment here or there.

Since pocket pistols usually have abbreviated sights, I find lasers very helpful for accurate shooting. Older shooters whose eyes can’t see the sights up close benefit even more.

Four very impressive people. Organized by Bryan Flanders.

The location is Utah State Capitol in Salt Lake City. It’s the only state government building I have encountered so far that doesn’t project government hostility at the visitor, and it is available for wedding and other photographers over the weekend. It’s a very visually tidy space with good light.
