Canik TP9sfx

The longslide version of the TP9 seems to do well in controlled rapid fire. DJ Petrou is pretty fast with the mag changes, too. A full review is coming soon.

What’s the purpose of the slide vents?

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

Canik, Walther, Grand Power, other race guns, all have these openings.My first guess was lightening the slide to keep its mass the same as an shorter models. Wouldn’t just thinning the slide achieve the same purpose without creating new paths for dust and sand to enter the gun?

Second guess, for venting heat from the barrel. Just how necessary is that for competition shooting?

Nikita was unavailable, she had to fill in.

(The revolver is a Czechpoint .357, and the stylish hat is from Henschel.)

How much difference do product photos make?

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

Earlier today, a friend showed me his Belgian-made Browning Hi-Power. He mentioned that it was on the chopping block to raise funds for his business, but I could do photos of it while he still had it. Having looked at his photos, I just had to take my own. These were done very quickly, while I ducked out of the party to the studio.

So I am curious if better photos will help him find a new home for this pistol.

“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.
