Gun Thread: The Dried Stuff in a Basket in the Bathroom Edition [Weasel]

potpourri scaled.jpg
Flowery Dried Stuff


Well this past week I've been at the Texas MoMe, and should just be getting home about the time this thread goes up on Sunday. Since I will not have had much time for Gun Thread writin' over the last few days, what I'm going to do is post some stuff sent in by you all - kind of a big Mail Bag section for the week. Some will certainly recognize this as a half-ass effort, or perhaps even a quarter-ass effort, but I prefer to think of it as a potpourri of content! That's it! It's a potpourri of gun thread content! Let's get to it below, shall we?

First up is a field report from our pal Diogenes who sends us the following:

While attending the Washington Arms Collectors gun show yesterday I saw these really clever shivs. I didn't realize Bluebell had started marketing her products.

It's a Brush and a Shiv!

Nice find Diogenes! Bluebell has certainly captured some of the concealed shiv retail market. Word on the "street" is she's planning to introduce a new line this fall and a Shiv's 'n Beans Bistro is in the works for Spring!

*******

Next we have this nice submission from our pal rocdoctom who spotted this sign on a recent trip.

Not a sign you see everywhere. Eureka Nevada on Hwy 50...the friendliest town on the loneliest road in America.

Eureka, NV is Gun Friendly!

Nice to know there are still some places in the United States that aren't filled with retards! Thanks rocdoctom!

*******

Next we have a range report from the SW Ohio MoMe from last weekend from our pal ibguy:

As prelude to the 6th(!) Annual SW Ohio MoMe a bunch of us met at the Vandalia Range & Armory. Our group included special guest Alton Jackson, the HQ's resident dead guy (buzzion), and a handful of others. Most had at least *some* experience with firearms, but buzzion was a virgin.

Emphasis on *was*.

Attached is a photo from his first-ever shooting experience (this with my Walther P22). He went on to shooting equally accurately with a 9mm and a 1911. Wow!

Retired Buckeye Cop brought his amazing AR (chambered in .22). It was waaaay too much fun to shoot! And incredibly accurate. RBC explains:

"It was a replica of the WWII-era Sturmgewehr 44 (StG 44) made by German Sport Guns chambered in .22 Long Rifle. The original StG 44 was the first assault rifle ever designed: the StG 44 has a lot of features that Kalishnikov copied directly into his AK-47 and Stoner adapted when he designed his Armalite 15 (AR 15), the basis of the M-16."

Alton Jackson brought a replica 6-shooter (chambered in .22 Magnum). What a HOOT - *everyone* wanted a turn!

Lurker Allan Y and his family also joined us (he and his wife and daughters have been MoMe fixtures from the very beginning). His HS sophomore daughter outshot pretty much everyone in our group - it was eery!

We had a great time, and will definitely be adding this "extra" as a regular MoMe feature going forward.

Great report, thanks ibguy!! Sounds like a good time was had by all. And who would have thought a dead guy could shoot?!

*******

THANK YOU

I'd like to take a moment to thank all those who attended another spectacular Texas MoMe. It was the stuff legends are made of, and it was an absolute pleasure to meet and re-meet each and every one of you. Special hat tip and love for Ben Had, Rancherbob and CowHorseQueen - our gracious and super-fun hosts for the weekend. My God that was a good time. We cannot thank you enough!!!!!

We did a lot of great shooting over two days, with a list of weapons too numerous to mention. Thank you to Jim Sunk New Dawn and Eromero for their help running the various ranges and all the others for bringing personal weapons and ammo for everyone to shoot!

Please feel free to discuss all the shooting, or the now concluded 4th Annual TXMoMe in general, in in the comments below!

8 There was a very limited edition of custom shivs by bluebell available at the TX MoMe.

Besides being signed, rumor has it that, under the right circumstances, the phrase "Troll Drengi" can be seen glowing faintly along the blade.

But the teenie tiny targets are an amazement to me.

21 Damn right she's stuck at the airport. She should have known better than to try taking that thing on the plane. Just kidding, she was a nice lady, unlikely to carry a M1919. A hairbrush shiv sure, but not a M1919.

I was chastised by a good friend for not telling her that the machine gun was an option.

The host of this Thread, Weasel, has probably forgotten more than most of us know.

Posted by: Duncanthrax at October 20, 2019 07:23 PM (DMUuz)

24 Now that I've got 6 full size auto pistols, I've got a basis for comparisons. One thing that surprised me was that my CZ-75 feels as thin in the hand as my 1911 (which is renowned for its slim, svelte butt). Not expected, since it's a double-stack 9mm. Double-stacks are thicker-er, yes?

So I busted out my caliper (non-digital, so I had to eyeball and estimate the decimals) and measured the grip thickness of all of my pistols. The results, from thinnest to thickest:

1) Yugoslav Tokarev: 1.15"
2) CZ-75: 1.213"
3) Browning Hi-Power: 1.24"
4) S+W Model 39: 1.28"
5) 1911: 1.287"
6) Beretta M9/92: 1.375"

(Caveat: The CZ-75 is wearing excellent frag-pattern VZ grips, which are wah-fer thin, but I think even the stock grips wouldn't bump it down more than one spot.)

The characteristics of the pistols, from the top:

1) Steel frame, 9mm, single-stack
2) Steel frame, 9mm, double-stack
3) Steel, 9mm, DS
4) Aluminum, 9mm, SS
5) Steel, .45, SS
6) Aluminum, 9mm, DS

Conclusion: grip thickness is determined less by single-stack vs double-stack mags than by frame material. Aluminum frames apparently must be made thicker than steel for strength.

So, if you've got small hands and/or put a premium on concealability, don't automatically assume you need a single-stack magazine pistol.

Now, modern plastic-fantastic pistols, I'm sure, are a whole different matter, but I own no combat Tupperware, so I can't make any comparisons there.

25 Savoring the awesomeness !

I have had a similar configuration of shiv for many years, but not plastic - search "al mar wild hair" to see a pic.
Great tittle urban carry knife.

No range time today, doing Linux file server configuration for the home network, a tedious and arcane task not helped by mountains of not-quite-right information online.

I had some great conversations with so many but I'm sad I didn't have at least one long discussion with our beloved Weasel.

59 As it happens, I got to the range this week. Went to NORVA with my shooting buddy Rick. I brought my M1, a Mossberg 44US 22, and a Remington 512 tube mag 22..
I put 5 clips through the M1 to confirm it was correctly sighted in.
I switched to the Remington...I was unable to ascertain where it was hitting at 25 yards. This gun is a project that I am rebuilding...More work to be done. It feeds and fires OK though, so can check that box.
Then on to the mossberg... I have plinked with it some over the years, but this time it was for accuracy work. At 25 yards it was so spot on it was boring. I switched to 50 yards, with the same result. I then switched to 22 shorts at 50 yards. Had to "hold over" a bit with the shorts, but if I did my part, I couldn't miss. Lovely gun...
Meanwhile, everyone else at the range was having a full auto schutzenfest. 4 belt fed guns, BAR, Thompson, Sten, belt fed H and Ks... A very good day at the range.

60 Taro Tsujimoto @24- doublestack vs singlestack. Everything is shot placement, right? Having said that, I confess to owning the CZ, 1911 nad Berretta. But I carry them rarely. I normally conceal carry a G19 Gen2. But this past weekend I carried a G48 which is a singlestack 9mm with 10rd mags, and is al little over 1 inch thick. There is a company, Shield something or other, that has produced a steel 15 rd mag for the G48. Yeah, how does it fit? I don't know but as soon as they go back in stock, I'm ordering a half dozen.

72 24 ... Taro,
I believe the CZ 75b is the most adaptable full size 9mm on the market. It is comfortable for Mrs. JTB's tiny hands and my catcher mitts size hands. If it was concealable, it would be my carry gun.

BTW, the 22lr adapter kit for the CZ is as accurate as the 9mm.

75 We ran into Ladyl at the Whataburger in Love Field, and got to spend some time with her. We were on the same flight to ATL. The ATL flight ran over an hour late, and she was going to miss her connection. D'oh Boy and I made it to our Savannah flight just before it was due to leave. I tipped the wheel chair girl really well.

Whew. Anyhow, Imma going to order some delivery food of some kind.

My favorite secret shivs sort of look like jewelry, and in fact are jewelry. You'd never know they were shivs in hiding. No one has ever stopped me while wearing one, and they go well with my sterling knuckles.

I'd really like a brush shiv, but are they sharp enough when you need them?

140 Went to the range here, far edge of Chicagoland (spit), where as a non-resident, I can shoot my own ammo but cannot buy any.

A non-rez can purchase handgun or shotgun or long gun ammo if carrying a valid HUNTING license from the state of one's ID issue. Go figure. And fuck Illinois.

Shot the two Rugers, the Mark III Government Target .22LR, and the SP101 3" wheelgun, using 38 SPL, not the big louds.

10 rounds of .22, 5 of 38. At 7.5 yards. I was able to settle quickly to 2" groups with the .22 and 3-1/2" with the SP, firing off and on single and double action.

141 "Does anyone know offhand what the cyclic rate of a M1919 is?"

About 500 rpm. American military automatic weapons of the era are VERY slow. A continuation of the Ordnance Dept's hatred of ammo wastage dating back to the Civil War.

You can easily squeeze off single shots from an M3 "Greasegun" SMG.

145 This year's Texas Mo Meet was the best, ever!

Until next year's that is.

Heartfelt thanks to Ben Had for the...well... EVERY thing. Such a friend to us all.

And special thanks to Rancher Bob, who patiently bore my visit this morning, helping me (and finally found) a mis-located pistol in the midst of a carload of gear.

I feared I had left it at one firing line or another, but no, it was in the "wrong" compartment of my computer case. And at only 12 oz., it lends itself to not being an obvious "weight" in one place or another.

Found it, got the car re-packed (not an inconsiderable task) and back on the road.

Arrived in Galveston about 4:30, had dinner and melded with the recliner for a while.

Now, alas, it's time to go unload the car. I could really use a team of Sherpas to help with this, you know.

It was AWESOME meeting so many Legends of the Horde, Lurkers and outright Newbies. I'm honored and humbled to be counted among ya.

You'll get lots of answers to that and it can be overwhelming. My suggestion for easily available and relatively cheap would be to look into the S+W M+P15 Sport and the Ruger AR-556. Been seeing a lot of good deals on the Ruger lately. Read some reviews on those and see where that takes you.

She jumped on my lap and headbutted me. So tomorrow, I will unload the vehicle and clean gubs.I'm pleased you found the missing item, and amazed the table we had the handguns was sorted out in the end. At the busiest period there were a minimum 10 different handguns with attendant magazines and ammo on that table and open bags and boxes to the rear. Jim, it was a pleasure to watch you run the drills and next year I even intend to shoot.

219 I am only a little bit jealous of everybody who got to do the Tx shoot. I had a fine time myself yesterday, doing IDPA here in WA, in the pouring rain, with no M1919.

The rain was very cold.

Maybe I'm more than a little bit jealous.

But the IDPA match was entertaining. The stages were creative, based on amusing scenarios that would be familiar to AoS readers. One stage had the participants starting with a walker on a Canadian street and fending off Antifa, one stipulated that the shooter must retain a Subway sandwich in the weak hand when attacked by noose-carrying assailants, one was about defending your bunker from Beto's AR-confiscation squads, and so on. One of the stages involved Corn Pop.

My main lessons learned this time are that I need a better rain jacket, and that I should pack a towel in my range bag on rainy days. And that I want a M1919.

Any earlier and the temps are in the 100s and its a wet heat - no fun.

Ben Had coordinated with the the current operators of Karl Rove's Weather Machine to get us Chamber of Commerce weather.

Perfect clear skies and temps in the day, and the perfect snap in the air after the sun sets to justify the fire pit.

Welp, the rifle portion was over 2 days - Friday and Saturday on the 700 acre manicured ranch next to the main event ranch. We started Friday morning using a beautiful custom home on a hill with views for miles as a classroom. There we covered the basics of gear and equipment, optics and elevation/wind adjustments, ballistics and atmospheric conditions, and finally some exercises putting it altogether.
We stopped for a lunch of smoked salmon (courtesy Nurse ratched) then moved down to the range and working on steel targets at 500 yards. Saturday we were back at the range for a few hours working on various targets between 100 and 500 yards with a variety of different weapons. It was a great 2 days, and we have some real shooters among us!!

Had a TX Peace Officer found reason to pull me over while en-route to or from the Mo Meet, the ensuing "are you armed, sir?" festivities would've been hilarious, I'm sure.

Out at Rancher Bob's this morning, I did the full extraction of guns and gear down to the bare carpet.

It overflowed the same table from where the Mo Meet Dinner was served, taking up a greater-than-equal amount of square footage under said table.

Fitting it all, as well as all the hardware which resulted in the 500 yard Target Frames and Targets... was quite a game of real, live Tetris, in a 2015 Mazda 5, 3/4 size mini-van.

But fit, it did.

Just imagine a Troopers reaction to dealing with seven rifles, two shotguns and about a dozen or so handguns.

Plus about 5,000 rounds of ammo.

It'd go one of two ways, depending the Trooper of course. Either a pat on the back with a "have a nice day, sir!", or OMG, SWAT TEAM! News, Live at Five and etc.

Cruise control, the speed limit and no stooped driving, saves the day!

Or get one of those funnel things, attach a hose to it, and run it out the door.

333 326 Hogue makes a grip sleeve that attaches to the LCP with a pin at the top of the backstrap. Makes all the difference in the world, IMNSHO.
Posted by: Duncanthrax at October 20, 2019 09:17 PM (DMUuz)

How much does it add to size? Best thing about the LCP is it's small enough to take everywhere.

I think I've seen those in a couple of different thicknesses. I have one somewhere that's not much thicker than a bicycle inner tube and really only adds some grippiness and not much bulk.

Urk. I don't much like myself.

335 How much does it add to size?"

Not much at all to the LCR. Barely wider.

Weasel, I got some serious side-eye from the guy sitting next to me on the plane as I was re-reading the mid-range course materials

already shopping for pelicans to bring the rifle next year (properly zero-ed of course)

337 If you're looking at 9mm, I'd also suggest Taurus...

338 There's a tornado warning currently in the Fayette County area between Austin and Houston, in the vicinity of La Grange.

Good thing I didn't go to the Wings Over Houston Airshow, I would be in the middle of it all right now.

Ha! I'll try and improve that so it flows a little better. And get some markers for the white board that work!

Grand Power K100 For The Win !

The rotating barrel really reduces the recoil and muzzle flip.

9mm feels like a .380

343 "329 Going out tomorrow for PA inline muzzle loader doe season. 50 Cal Hornady sabot with 100 grains Triple Seven should do the trick out to 150 yards.
Posted by: Cosda

In some states a Marlin 444 single is considered a Primitive weapon. That's 250grn moving at 2500fps. Almost unfair."

Nothing primitive about a 444 Marlin or a scoped 50 Cal inline for that matter. PA has a flintlock only season late December into mid January. That's primitive and cold!

Unless you were going to slip it into a vest pocket, not enough to care. Nothing to the pocket holster for pocket carry. What it gives you in gripability is priceless.

And again, for those I saw this weekend, you are all the best!
For the lurkers and introverts out there, consider dipping a toe in the water and attending a MoMe sometime. Sure, there is a lot of laughing and goofing around, but there is always a place for you quiet types who like to observe from the periphery.

Always fun to spend time with you jackwagons. Plus the good eats. The goat was tasty.

And I got to seriously scratch an itch with shooting the C96 Mauser Broomhandle. Now I'm remembering that there have been a few Red 9s in decent condition at the various gun shows in DFW, and seemed to be reasonably priced. Hmmmmmm.... I can live on Ramen and bologna for a month or so.
