Off to the range...

The year of being less sucky with a pistol continues. I will not forget my Dot Torture targets like I did last weekend.

In the meantime, have a gun picture:

I burn with envy. I've done nothing since last Saturday but nurse a busted up ankle.

Planning to shoot Steel Challenge tomorrow afternoon though. Hope I don't pay for it with massive ankle pain and swelling.

Finn capture Mosin, eh?

Cool pic! Is that a Mosin rear sight?

Enjoy the range time!

Murphy's Law,

"Finn capture Mosin, eh?"

Well, it's a Finnish New England Westinghouse, but it's tough to say exactly how captured it was. Probably "Finnish-seized" would be more descriptive.

For instance, the Romanov eagle is still there in the middle of the N.E.W. crest, and it's an un-cut full-length 91, and so never got shortened by the Russians to a stubby li'l 91/30.

Its an amazing piece of history in the way almost only Mosin Nagants are.

Ooooh. A Westinghouse. Turning a bit "jealousy green" here. Any time you feel like doing a post with lots of pics on it, you'll have at least one happy reader.

Cleaning my keyboard...

My buddy Willard had a "Remington" Finn and the receiver turned out to be an 1898 Tula.

Since the Rem markings were on the barrel not the receiver...

Soumi are a pragmatic folk.
