You don’t say?

Working at a gun shop I hear my share of opinions and stories from people. For the most part the customers I’ve talked to are honest, good people.

Yesterday though, this guy walks in and I’m subjected to the weirdest story I’ve heard yet. 100% sure he’s a veteran, but a young one, maybe late twenties, early thirties. He had VA papers in his hand, and there is a VA office down the street.

Initially I first believed him, kind of giving him the benefit of the doubt, but as he kept talking, I realized he was lying and that maybe he was on medication; maybe he was suffering from some sort of mental disorder/illness.

In order of what he told me in a span of 30 mins since he was the only one in the shop. Starts off believable but then spirals into lies…

  • He had friends in the Special Forces (only thing I believed)
  • He won a military competition and got 25 acres of land as a prize.
  • He owned 45 cars, including Maseratis and Lotuses
  • He owns 900 guns
  • He built his first machine gun when he was 9 years old
  • He built a 7mm full auto machine gun with a 150 round “clip”
  • He owns a helicopter
  • He combined 4 of his 7mm machine guns and put them on his helicopter
  • He shot a 35 ft long snake somewhere in the U.S
  • Black Ops will kill him if he speaks out about certain things.

Eventually he left after my boss handed me some paperwork to look over.

This post isn’t meant to make fun of the guy. I don’t know what he’s been through during his time in the service. Maybe he does have an underlying mental illness. Or maybe he’s just a pathological liar; he wasn’t arrogant about his stories, he said it all with a straight face and smile, like how a good friend talks to you. I can’t say for sure.

June was PTSD awareness month.

As the saying goes. “War. War never changes."…but war changes those who are a part of it.

Ruger Super Redhawk Alaskan

Available in 3 different calibers; .44 Magnum, .480 Ruger and .454 Casull, the Alaskan model of the Super Redhawk is what would be called a “Bear Gun”. Generally if you’re out in bear country; whether you’re walking your dog, fishing or camping, having a compact but heavy caliber sidearm that can stop a charging bear would be better option over carrying 9mm or 40 S&W.

Bullpup Rifles (Semi)

Either you love them or hate them, the bullpup design on the market offer both advantages and disadvantages. It eventually boils down to individual shooter preference, which holds true for any firearm. There are also various chassis or kit options to convert other rifles or shotguns into bullpups, but the ones posted above started off life as one, rather than turning into one. Most if not all should be familiar to any gun enthusiast.

  • MAS .223 (very rare civilian FAMAS)
  • Steyr AUG CQB
  • FN FS2000
  • IMI TAR-21
  • FN PS90
  • Steyr AUG
  • Kel-Tec RFB

Taurus Raging Thirty

In production for only 1 year, this is one of the harder to find Raging Bull models. They were only available in a 10” long non-ported barrel. It’s closest rival was the Ruger Blackhawk, which was also available in .30 Carbine. (GRH)

Kel-Tec KSG

12 gauge bullpup shotgun made in the U.S, some say the design was influenced by the South African Neostead. When they first hit the market in extremely limited numbers, people looking to be the first to own one shelled out upwards of $1,500+ for one. Now you can get the KSG in different colors, hopefully with all the issues fixed, for around $800~. (GRH)

Mossie Tactics MT2400

A tactical light mounting option for the AR-15 platform, it deviates from the norm by attaching to the front sight base instead of using the handguard. Mossie Tactics makes two models; one for the standard FSB and the other is designed for Troy and Noveske flip-up sights. Depending on the brand/model of light you use, it may obscure some optics since it’s at the 12’o clock position. (GRH)

DShKM

Also known as the DShK 38/46 or “Modernized”, this Russian heavy machine gun still sees heavy use in the Middle East and some Com-Bloc nations who haven’t upgraded to the NSV or Kord. The last two photos give a look at the anti-aircraft sights. It would be a complete setup but its missing the shoulder pad assembly. You can check out some more photos in the link below. When my wheeled mount arrives, I’ll take pics of mine as well. (GRH)
