via Field & Stream

I once owned a Baikal O/U shotgun…it was a pig…and I was a tits shotgun shooter back then. This shotgun test is something else again though.

Friday Firepower – jumpstarting a car with an AK-47

via The Firearm Blog

Who knew AKs could do amazing stuff like this.

The AK47 and all its variants are among the most iconic rifles in history and have been the workhorse for many countries around the world for decades. They’re cheap, simple, reliable and can jump start your car in a fix. No really, check out the video below. Don’t try this at home though, I’d suggest keeping a set of jumper cables in the trunk and joining [AA].

Friday Firepower – 700 WTF

via the Firearm Blog

Check out this – The 700 WTF, a custom rifle and custom round.

The cartridge, named the .700 WTF (“What The F…”) and is made by fire forming a .50 BMG brass case, trimming it to 3″ in length and then sizing it. The round is loaded with a 1132 grain paper patched .700 lead cast bullet.

The rifle, with just a 16.25″ barrel, can push the 1132 grain of lead up to 2300 fps. Thats 13,000 ft/lbs of energy, right up there with the .50 BMG and far exceeding the .700 Nitro Express.

Friday Firepower – I just shot myself!

via The Firearm Blog

Tex Grebner shot himself while drawing his Kimber .45. His negligent discharge was caught on camera. The bullet traveled down his leg and exited just above his knee. I could not help watching it without wincing. Tex took full responsibility for the negligent discharge but explains how it happened. If you use multiple holsters for the same gun, this video is a MUST watch.

There is some NSFW language as you can imagine.

Friday Firepower – The Petard

Dedicated to The Labour Party.

from Wikipedia

petard was a small bomb used to blow up gates and walls when breaching fortifications. The term has a French origin and dates back to the sixteenth century. In a typical implementation, it was commonly either a conical or rectangular metal object containing 5 or 6 pounds of gunpowder, activated with a slow match used as a fuse.

Etymology

Look up petard in Wiktionary, the free dictionary.
Look up hoist with one’s own petard in Wiktionary, the free dictionary.

The word petard comes from the Middle Frenchpeter, to break wind, from pet expulsion of intestinal gas, from Latin peditum, from neuter of peditus, past participle of pedere, to break wind; akin to Greekbdein to break wind. (Merriam-Webster) Petard remains a French word meaning a firecracker today (in French slang, it means a handgun, or a joint).

The word remains in modern usage in the phrase hoist with one’s own petard, which means “to be harmed by one’s own plan to harm someone else” or “to fall into one’s own trap,” literally implying that one could be lifted up (hoist, or blown upward) by one’s own bomb.

Labour were planning and implementing a social media strategy, one which was harvesting large amounts of emails, they were and are using parliamentary services funding again to run their election campaign.

Friday Firepower – Hunting Taniwha

By all accounts taniwha are fearsome creatures that will require some serious firepower to put down hard. I have compiled a selection of interesting weapons that could be used.

Consultants’ preferred route would avoid the tributary and the stream, except for drainage through Queen Elizabeth II Square next to Britomart, which was an unreclaimed part of the harbour when the stream was buried.

But Mr Hawke said the taniwha swam into the tide as well as up and down the stream.

Len might give you a special permit to wait at the stream mouth for the taniwha to fill it with lead. Kev is on his way in the Hilux to help.

SOme suggested rifles would be the awesome Rigby Double Rifles. At $32500 USD though I might need a treat settlement to be able to afford one for taniwha hunting. Realistically I would need to get it in at least .577 Nitro Express and those rifles start at $44,500 USD.

Given the fearsome reputation of taniwha I should really be considering something like .700 Nitro Express.

Holland & Holland make the Royal Double Rifle which is an eye watering starting price of £95,000.

If you are going after taniwha then this is probably the puppy and a hell of lot cheaper than feeding the taniwha its usual diet of coinage and notes.
