“You can’t fight the City Hall!” Perhaps, but…

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

The state, be it the USSR, the Third Reich, The Peoples Republic of Trashcanistan, or the United State of America, can generally defeat a lone dissenter. The only difference between the dissenter being armed or not is the amount of effort and the resources required. That logistical load doesn’t scale well past a certain point. The British Empire found that out in Ireland around 1920 — they could have held onto the island by force, but at greater cost than the place was worth to them.

A single dissident can be escorted to jail under a mere threat of force. One with a rifle might fall to a SWAT team or surrender. It’s possible to scale up the force and use self-propelled cannon and an infantry section to take down a dozen dissenters, but that tends to spread the misery too widely for the rest of the  population to support. And a few hundred thousand people who have the same goal, perhaps something as unambitious as being left unmolested, and are willing and able to resist…they might be left alone in favor of an easier target.

Где смотреть "Холодное Танго"?

В кино в США этот фильм не показывают. Помогите найти в сети! Не против платить за просмотр, но не могу найти где.

All that swirling gas illustrates why it’s prudent to wear safety glasses. Images taken at Royal Range in Brentwood, TN. Both suppressors are made by Aklys Defense.

New York Reload

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

“New York Reload” describes drawing a second gun in preference to reloading the first under fire. While tshirts describing the concept are available, the practice itself isn’t. NYC remains one of the most restrictive jurisdictions in regards to carry or mere ownership of guns, possibly more restrictive than the UK.

Back in traditional America, that practice is alive and well.

Albert, the pistolero pictured, is a great fan of “cowboy logistics”, using the same cartridge for both handgun and carbine. Between the 9+1 of the .357 Timberwolf pump and the additional six of the Ruger GP100, he’s decently equipped to deal with most raptor and xenomorph infestations.  Quite a few shoots like this concept.

California, 25 years later

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

The rifle, fed with stripper clips, is actually California-legal for now. The Glock as well, with 10-round magazines. Actual defense against rioters…not so sure. Urban cops might take the side of the looters.

On the plus side, it seems that large-scale riots are less likely, now that the chief instigator is out of office. A good time to get ready for various future eventualities. Or, if rooftops seem like a chancy place, to move out of California, New Jersey and similar leftist Trashcanistans to America.

The difference light color makes

I can’t recall if the murals were on the same building or nearby…on a different building, I think.

The mural above was probably based on the famous photo of Benny Moose. The macho man of Italy was mounted on a horse, and the groom holding the horse in place was retouched away.

SVT40 and the evening skyline

I’ve seen photos of Marines with SVT40 rifles, and I’ve seen them in striped shirts. Never both in the same image.

Follow-up bike questions

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

Looks like I narrowed the wish list down to a mountain bike with trapezoidal frame, full front and rear suspension, gel seat. Not concerned about the weight or about having more than one gearshift range. If possible, would prefer taller handlebar position for more upright riding.

Looking for specific model recommendations, ideally under $5K fully configured. Less would be just fine. The main goal is getting exercise in reasonable comfort and without getting too bored.
