Properly Using Weapon Mounted Lights

Shooting Illustrated has a nice read on the matter…. For the record, I really like them. I see them as often being a nice primary for bedside guns as well as a great back up or secondary light… It all depends on your application and needs. YMMV as they say, and every situation is different. Of course you always have to remember the golden rule of never pointing a gun a something you dont want to destroy, but if your chosen application is not going to foreseeably put you in that situation, it makes a great primary light.

*Its only a coincidence that I have a sidebar ad over there for weapon mounted lights. lol

More Mini Cannon Goodness

I mentioned this one earlier…. well, yes it has really gotten me all worked up and I guess you could say that I now have the bug. Here is another company that makes them…

The Mini Cannon is a .177 bore (standard BB size). It uses black powder and any firework fuses. There is a knob to adjust the barrel up and down, for aiming, The carriage is aluminum and the barrel is solid brass.

The Mini Cannon is built and works exactly like the antique cannons of Napoleon’s time or the mortars used in the American Civil War

Here is some more info on cleaning and shooting the cannon… They are priced at $39 and it comes with a brass ram rod.

Most potent pistol evah?

Arms Post says that it is the AK Mini Draco… I get the point, but other than for times “when you absolutely, positively have to kill every motha f*cka in the room”, I just dont get it. I see it as a really, really cool range toy, but I would not rely on it for personal defense (or offense).
