Dawn died.

The end came entirely too fast for Dawn. The treatment should have started a year and a half earlier…

I’d like to thank all who help to make the last-ditch effort to save her. She was a very good person.

Does anyone have one of those rifles and be willing to let me take photos of them?

My favorite fine artist will have a show on September 1 in Minneapolis. I plan to attend and recommend it highly to others. Aribert Munzner is worth meeting in person.

Father and Daughter

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

The father is John Young of Fighting Sheepdog. His daughter gets to be trained by a USMC graduate. The pistol is a S&W Victory .22, a very modular design. The little loop on the back is “halo” made by Tandemkross — it prevents pinched fingers that seem to go with this pistol otherwise. The mag loader John is wearing on a lanyard is optional for Victory magazines but really, really helps with Ruger 2245 and MkIII mags. While I don’t see a muzzle brake as a need for .22 pistols, their prevalence at shooting competitions suggests that they do work well.

A scope so clear…

…that you can see right into the afterlife of your foes!

NEMO 300WinMag rifle, US OPtics 3-17x scope. A skilled shooter with a spotter could dominate a significant stretch of landscape with this combo.

Has anyone been able to reach Moore Advanced Dynamics lately?

I’ve been trying to get  ahold of Mark or Gary from M.A.D., but nobody picks up either land line or cell phone, or responds to email. Their contact form errors out. If anyone is in touch with them, please ask them to connect back to me.

Custom rifles are always works in progress

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

The first approach looks like this: light tapering 1:8 twist barrel, muzzle brake and charging handle by Strike Industries, ambi safety by them also. Mission First Tactical grip and stock, carbon fiber forend by Brigand Arms. Improved trigger. Lancer magazine. Lasermax micro laser as backup sighting option. Trijicon mini ACOG 3×24. Magnesium lower courtesy of Fostech, same as on their upcoming ultralight carbine. The combined result is light, handy, and should be fairly accurate. Overall design and awesome Cerakote job by Fighting Sheepdog of Knoxville, TN.

On reflection, I decided to separate firearms and politics from other parts of my site. I just need to remember how to set up another WordPress blog on the same server but with a different identity…

FB is as usual.

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

FB claims they blocked me for 24 hours for posting something with nudity. My guess they couldn’t deal with this. That definitely confirms the need to post most of my work on a server I control and only use FB as an incidental distribution channel.

Incidentally, FB also disabled my ability to respond to private messages. That’s definitely a malicious move, and one that makes the need to find a better social media venue more pressing. WeWe didn’t impress me with their attempts at functionality, nor has G+…

Where to post NSFW entries?

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

A model and a makeup artist

I’d like a show of hands:

  • Who would prefer NSFW images and texts here, mixed with politics, firearms and other topics?
  • Who would prefer I start a separate blog where things you can’t unsee would show up?
