Not The Only Game In Town...

While I was having a blast (ha! Gun puns!) learning all about flintlocks on Saturday (and go read #1 blogdaughter's AAR while you're at it), Brad_in_MA was also at the range...
Jay,

I was mistaken. The garden gnome wasn't . . . . but it was an uber-cute, sappy ceramic Christmas Teddy Bear.

Attached are three pics . . . you need to make 'em into a blog post.

Alan took the first shot on the bear with the BREN. Decapitated the little guy. Blew his head "clean off." Let me tell you . . . . that BREN just gobbles up ammo like nobody's business. It wouldn't take too much to blow through a couple hundred bucks of ammo in one afternoon.

Alan again commented that the report from my M44 is God-awful shaggin' loud. Yup. They way Ivan intended. ;->
The Bren in question was covered here. Here's the Christmas Teddy bear gnome before Alan blew his head off:


Yeah, I tend to agree with Brad. He needed killin'...

And after:


And here's how you say "good day" in Russian:


I think it's funny that both Brad and I spent our Saturdays shooting loud, smokey rifles with lots of kick and stabbies on the end...

That is all.

Jay,

Thanks for the shout-out. After yesterday's event, I needed that.

Jay, each time I take the M44 for a ride, I like it more and more. I learned that when I do my part, orange clays on the 50 yard berm just VAPORIZE when they get hit. I think I have to start looking around for an M38 or an M91/59.

Wally -- if you're reading this ... BRENifying stuff is FUN. But Holy Brother of Moses, that gun is HEAVY.

Dang it, I read Bren and added the Ten and my mind went of in a completely different direction involving white blazers and Ferraris and Franchis and Mozambiques and RoShamBos and wait.....what?

Wally said...

Brad, I am reading.

And all I can say is that the Maxim MG08 has had some service here too, and I sure know the feeling of heavy and happy :)

Actually, "dobri dyen" is how you say "Good Day" in Russian.

How you fill your hands while saying it is another matter.

Can I get a link to a desktop sized version of the "Your humble host" picture, please?

It makes you look like a heavily armed walrus, and it is magnificent.
