This girl has “heartbreaker” written all over her. The video isn’t new but every time I see it I can’t help but be impressed and smile. Her enthusiasm as she takes apart, reassembles and then performs a function check on the rifle captures perfectly what makes guns and shooting so much fun. She’s hardly the anti-social, anti-government menace that our foes would make us all out to be, is she? [ Check out the video behind the cut ]
I never did understand the wails of despair from the traditionalists when the first lever guns came out with stainless metal and laminate stocks. I love the classic look of walnut and blued steel on my lever guns as much as the next guy but to my eye the stainless/laminate combo is equally fitting.
Nosler, the maker of damn fine bullets, also makes damn fine rifles. But while most hunters have at one point or another used Partitions and Ballistic Tips, not nearly as many have had a chance to give the rifles a shot because they are assembled in the same quantities that Ferrari produces racecars.
Unlike Italian Supercars, though, Nosler’s rifles are becoming more affordable as time goes on because the company has sought out ways to take the best features of its custom line of guns and turn them into more affordable semi-custom rifles.
I pity the fool who isn’t excited for this summer’s release of the A-Team. For gun nuts of a certain age, the four men who were wrongly convicted by a military court of “a crime they didn’t commit” can’t help but evoke a mixture of nostalgia combined with a satchel charge of guilt-free napalm-fueled adrenaline.
