  • Shooting SVT-40 WW2 Tokarev Soviet rifle...

    Shooting this 71 year old 7.62x54r semi-auto rifle for the first time. 1941 Tula arsenal SVT-40.

    SVT-40 Field Strip

    These rifles are all over the surplus market at the present time. You get a lot of bang for your buck.

    The SVT-40 is a Soviet semi-automatic battle rifle which saw widespread service during and after World War II. It was intended to be the new service rifle of the Soviet Red Army but the introduction of the SVT-40 was disrupted by the German invasion in 1941, resulting in a switch back to the older Mosin-Nagant bolt-action rifle for the duration. After the war, new rifles, the SKS and the AK-47, were adopted as Soviet service rifles instead. The abbreviation SVT-40 means Samozaryadnaya Vintovka Tokareva, Obrazets 1940 goda ("Tokarev Self-loading Rifle, Model of 1940", Russian: Самозарядная винтовка Токарева, образец 1940 года;).

  • Mossberg Model 500 Shotgun

    Fun Gun Reviews Presents: The Mossberg Model 500 Pump Shotgun, Introduced in 1961, is one of the most popular in the country. A reliable, proven design that is being used for Home Defense and by U.S. Forces around the world.

    Mossberg 500 is a series of pump-action shotguns manufactured by O.F. Mossberg & Sons.[1] The 500 series comprises widely varying models of hammerless repeaters, all of which share the same basic receiver and action, but differ in bore size, barrel length, choke options, magazine capacity, and "furniture" (stock and forearm) materials. Model numbers included in the 500 series are the 500, 505, 510, 535, and 590.

    The 12 gauge pump action is a very useful firearm. I wouldn't have sold the extra barrel. The multiple barrel package is a great deal. The longer barrel is ideal for duck and geese hunting. It has a full choke which is the tightness of the opening of the barrel at the muzzle. It keeps the shot pattern closer together at longer ranges. The shorter barrel would be a cylinder bore. It is a larger opening to facilitate buckshot and rifled slugs which are devastating. The pump action is sure and fast. I prefer the Remington 870 personally. The Winchester Defender series is also a good choice. They are reasonable in price. The recoil of the magnum or 3 inch or 3 1/2 inch loads are severe. You can always use a lighter non magnum field load in many applications especially target practice or initiation. Wearing a padded shooting vest helps a lot too. Always remember to treat all firearms as loaded and always point them in a safe direction. 

    Totalitarians always fretted at the possession of the basic double barrel farmer's shotgun as an impendiment to enslavement. The pitchfork was well respected too in the hands of swarthy men. Freedom was never given. It was taken. Those who possessed power want it back. They realize, too, that it will not be given. It must be taken ergo the push for gun control. The other option to take power from the people is trickery. People will give their rights and freedoms away with that technique. Any attempt to acquire power from the people must be held suspect. Guard it jealously with your shotgun.

    You'd think they're trying to round up the guns in Kenya. A good staged managed massacre is timely.

    It is illegal in Kenya to own any type of firearm without a valid gun ownership license as spelled out under the Firearms Act (Cap. 114) Laws of Kenya. Anyone who is 12 years or older can apply to privately own a gun. However, such persons must provide in writing to the Chief Licensing Officer (CLO) stating genuine reason(s) for their need to privately own and carry a firearm. It remains at the discretion of the CLO to make a decision to award, deny or revoke a gun ownership license based on the reason(s) given. Anyone seeking to hold a gun license must pass the most stringent of background checks that probes into their past and present criminal, mental health and well as domestic violence records. Failure to pass one of these checks automatically bars one from being permitted to own a firearm. These checks are regularly repeated and must be continually passed for anyone to continue holding the gun license. Failure to pass any of these checks at any stage, means an automatic and immediate revocation of the issued license. Once licensed to own a gun, no permit is required in order to carry around a concealed firearm.

    This is a buy/don't buy review for the Norinco M305b or M14.

  • U.S. Survival Rifle 22LR Semi-Auto AR-7 ...
    by George Freund on September 10, 2013 at 10:33 PM
    5834 Views - 0 Comments

    Fun Gun Reviews Presents : The U.S. Survival Rifle. This super lightweight 22LR semi-automatic rifle breaks down into four pieces that can be store away into the waterproof stock. Made by Henry Repeating Arms, this handy little rifle is perfect for hikers, campers, fisherman, bush pilots, or anyone who spents time in the great outdoors!

    The ArmaLite AR-7 Explorer, designed by M-16 inventor Eugene Stoner, is a semi-automatic .22 Long Rifle rifle developed from the AR-5 adopted by the U.S. Air Force as a pilot and aircrew survival weapon. Its intended markets today are backpackers and other recreational users as a take-down utility rifle. The AR-7 is often recommended by outdoor users of recreational vehicles (automobile, airplane or boat) who might have need for a weapon for foraging or defense in a wilderness emergency.

    History & design

    The prototype of what would become the AR-7 was designed by Eugene Stoner at ArmaLite Inc., a division of Fairchild Aircraft. The rifle shares some of the features of the bolt-action AR-5, another rifle designed by Stoner for ArmaLite and adopted by the United States Air Force in 1956 as the MA-1.[1] The MA-1 was intended to replace the M4 Survival Rifle and the M6 Aircrew Survival Weapon which was a superimposed ("over-under") twin-barrel rifle/shotgun chambered in .22 Hornet and .410 bore, using a break-open action. The AR-5 had the advantage of repeat fire over the then-standard M6, using the same .22 Hornet cartridge. When the AR-5 was adopted as the MA-1 but was not placed in issue due to the numbers of M4 and M6 survival weapons in USAF inventory, ArmaLite used the research and tooling for the AR-5 in developing the AR-7 for the civilian market.

    Armalite AR-7 Explorer internal parts assembled (left sideplate removed)

    The AR-7 uses a blowback semi-automatic action in .22 Long Rifle but retains the AR-5/MA-1 feature of storing the disassembled parts within the hollow stock, which is filled with plastic foam and capable of floating.[3][4] Like the bolt-action AR-5, the AR-7 was designed as a survival rifle for foraging small game for food. The AR-7 is constructed primarily of aluminum, with plastic for the stock and buttcap. Even the barrel is aluminum (in later production composite material), using a rifled steel barrel liner.[5] The AR-7 measures 35 inches overall when assembled. It disassembles to four sections (barrel, action, stock, and magazine), with three parts storing inside the plastic stock measuring 16 inches long. The rifle weighs 2.5 pounds light enough for convenient backpacking. The rear sight is a peep sight, which comes on a flat metal blade with an aperture (in later production two different size apertures), and is adjustable for elevation (up-down). The front sight is adjustable for windage (side-side). Accuracy is sufficient for hunting small game at ranges to 50 yards.


    Reliability of the AR-7 is highly dependent on the condition of the magazine and on the ammunition used, perhaps more so than with other models of semi-automatic .22 caliber rifles. The feed ramp is part of the magazine and subject to damage from mishandling. Flat-nosed bullets tend to jam on the edge of the chamber of the barrel. The transition of cartridge from magazine to barrel can be smoothed by minor beveling of the chamber of the barrel, by using round-nosed as opposed to flat-nosed bullets and by paying attention to condition of the feed lips and feed ramp of the magazine. Later production magazines include an external wire spring to align the cartridge; earlier magazines used two pinch marks at the top of the magazine body, which could become worn over time.

    All iterations of the AR-7 from the Armalite to the Henry use bolt and dual recoil springs that are heavy compared to most other .22 semiautomatics. The AR-7 requires high velocity ammunition for reliable functioning. The manufacturer recommends use of 40 grain round nose bullets in high velocity loadings. It is still possible to manually load a single round into the firing chamber, allowing use of flat nosed bullets or low velocity or subsonic ammunition.

    The barrel takedown nut tends to loosen after firing and may need hand tightening to maintain both accuracy and reliability.

    Armalite sold the design to Charter Arms in 1973. According to some accounts posted by enthusiasts, this is where quality began to deteriorate.[6] Barrels were said to have a tendency to warp. Other sources state that the first production at Charter had problems which were corrected in later production runs.[2] Since Charter Arms sold the design and rights to Henry Repeating Arms in 1980, the Henry AR-7 has regained a reputation for reliability.

  • FIREARMS: SKS Rifle Review
    by George Freund on September 2, 2013 at 1:56 PM
    4393 Views - 0 Comments

    Fun Gun Reviews Presents: The SKS Rifle Review. A classic 7.62x39 Semi-Automatic 10 rd Box fed Carbine of Soviet design that is a favorite among U.S. Shooters and Collectors.

    The SKS is a Soviet semi-automatic carbine chambered for the 7.62×39mm round, designed in 1943 by Sergei Gavrilovich Simonov. Its complete designation, SKS-45, is an initialism for Samozaryadnyj Karabin sistemy Simonova, 1945 (Russian: Самозарядный карабин системы Симонова, 1945; Self-loading Carbine of (the) Simonov system, 1945), or SKS 45. In the early 1950s, the Soviets took the SKS carbine out of front-line service and replaced it with the AK-47; however, the SKS remained in second-line service for decades. It is still used as a ceremonial arm today. The SKS was widely exported, and was also produced by some former Eastern Bloc nations as well as China, where it was designated the "Type 56", East Germany as the Karabiner S and in North Korea as the "Type 63". The SKS is currently popular on the civilian surplus market in many countries, including the United States, Canada and New Zealand. It was one of the first weapons chambered for the 7.62×39mm M43 round, which was also used later in the AK-47.

    This is a tough do anything rifle. I prefer its 20 inch barrel for accuracy. In Canada it is readily found for about $200. That's a good investment. The 7.63x39 cartridge is quite powerful for hunting and is cheap and plentiful. Remember most Chinese ammunition is corrosive. Clean your gun as soon as possible. Have fun. Always handle frearms safely and shoot in areas designated for it.

  • FIREARMS: Kel-Tec SU-16A Review

    Review of the Kel-Tec SU-16A Semi Auto Rifle By Rod. Great rifle, if you have experience to share please comment!!! Civil Advantage Firearms Training is a Canadian company operating out of Vancouver's lower mainland. We specialize in the Canadian Firearms Safety Course, beginner, tactical and live fire training. We train beginners, civilians, federal and municipal police officers, corrections personal and CBSA (border protection).

    SU-16 refers to a series of semi-automatic rifles and carbines manufactured by Kel-Tec CNC Industries, Inc. of Cocoa, Florida, referred to in Kel-Tec's marketing as "Sport Utility rifles". The SU-16 series is notable for its compact, lightweight and simple design; and for being able to be broken down and folded into a compact configuration for transportation and storage. While the barrel, bolt-carrier and mechanism are steel, the SU-16's stock, receiver, and forend are manufactured of high-strength polymer plastic.

    I do try to support American industry where I can. The firearms industry is a large part of it today as in the past. This is a great little rifle for the neophyte shooter. Some experts will poo poo the gun comparing it to guns that cost many thousands of dollars. The SU-16 is a Chevy. They bought a Porsche. They may both be cars, but they aren't comparable. The Chevy will haul your butt around nicely. It economical like the SU-16 and you don't have to worry about getting it scratched in the woods. It's synthetic. The AR mags are NATO standard and available everywhere. So enjoy the freedoms you have by EXCERCISING not just your mind and body but the right to BEAR ARMS! 

    P.S. I always use a trigger lock or secure storage case while carrying any firearm in a car. It is the law if the vehicle is left unattended here in the great white north. In some states firearms must be actually displayed for law enforcement to see. Many cooks to boil you in some soup. 

  • How To Survive Getting Lost In The Woods...

    Enjoy the outdoors, without fear of getting lost. This video shares basic information that I learned "the hard way," along with recommendations from wilderness survival experts.

    The STOP Acronym works well to control panic:

    S: Stop what you're doing. Sit down (to keep your self from walking or running). Have a drink of water. Water washes the taste of fear out of your mouth. Sit for 30 minutes to reduce the adrenaline that is flooding your system. Use this time to

    T: Think. Use your brain to evaluate the threat that is facing you. Is it getting dark? Or is is cold? What will you need to do?

    O: Observe your surroundings. How are they similar and different from where you were before you became lost? Is the river on which side of you? What about the mountains or other landmarks, etc? Then finally, develop a plan.

    P: Plan. Ask yourself, "What am I going to do?" Decide if you are really lost OR if you are only slightly disoriented. If you are really lost, YOU SHOULD STAY WHERE YOU ARE....and wait to be found. If you are slightly disoriented, you should search for the trail.


    Find a good source of water. In a survival situation, you can last up to three days without water, but by the end of the second day you're not going to be in very good shape. Springs or streams provide good sources of water. If you find a water source and are not sure if it is contaminated, boil it, or use chemical tablets. Contray to popular belief, you don't need to boil water very long to make it safe from biological contamination. Just bring it to a boil. If there aren't springs or stream in your area, you can use jacket sleeves tied to your ankles in the morning, when wading through the grass to get dew on the jacket, then suck the moisture out of the fabric. Warning: don't drink the dew from toxic or allergic plants.


    You can survive a few weeks without food, so hunting, fishing and gathering wild edibles isn't usually an urgent priority. However, the wilderness provides many food sources. See: Merriwether's Guide to Edible Wild Plants of Texas and the Southwest:

    General references:

    These are all great sites for further information. They do forget the greatest source of strength GOD. That is quite common today. I have found prayer a fanastic encouragement. You are never truly alone. The Lord is always with you. Call on Him. Perhaps he wanted a little time with you alone in the Garden of Eden. Enjoy your time and he will lead your way.
