As far as decanters go unless you are storing your booze in the skulls of your enemies you likely can’t come up with a more classy booze storage device for your war room then the Medieval Knights Helmet Decanter.
Not only does it have a decanter inside the helmet but it has room for 4 shot glasses so you can share a victory drink with your battle buddies.
We never thought it was possible to have a toss-up in our heads on the globe booze storage but now the knights helmet might just be edging it out.
The named concept of the battle rifle existed after most battle rifles had fallen out of service. As far as I know, the term is seemingly one made up by firearms enthusiasts to describe rifles that fall outside of the realm of an assault rifle, or sniper rifle. In the firearms industry, we like to make shit up, but occasionally something sticks. Battle rifle was something that stuck.
When most people say battle rifles, they are talking about semi-automatic rifles that fire a full-powered cartridge like the 308, 7.62x54R, and even the newer 6.5 Creedmoor would qualify. These rifles can be select-fire, but its not a requirement. As you’d expect, this includes guns like the AR-10, the FN FAL, the G3, the M14/M1A, and the most modern model on the market, the SCAR-H. These rifles define the contemporary battle rifle, even if most are not that modern.
We figured with the start of the new season of Vikings upon us it was time for a Viking themed post. Some Vikings use a breiðöx, others a suppressed SCAR heavy or M320 (though neither of the latter is terribly much use in the skjaldborg). Let’s talk a little about the old school warriors today. Let’s talk about Viking hardware.
Striker-fired guns are the bee’s knees. Rarely do you see a new gun come out in any design besides striker-fired. Hammer fired handguns aren’t dead, but they may be gone as far as armed professionals go. The United States military got rid of the hammer-fired Beretta for the P320. Most police forces have transitioned to these guns in various flavors, and most popular carry guns are striker-fired models. What exactly is a striker-fired handgun? How do they work? Well, let’s find out.
What’s A Striker-Fired gun?
All strikers are firing pins, but not all firing pins are strikers. Striker fired guns can best be described as spring-loaded firing pins. The racking the slide or pulling the trigger, or a combination of both cock the striker and the striker is held in the ready to fire position with potential spring energy behind it. Once the trigger is pulled, the spring energy propels the striker forward.
A company has made it when people start using their brand name as a stand-in for any item in the same realm. For example, tissues being called Kleenex, Jacuzzis and hot tubs, and lest we forget Ping Pong and table tennis. Sometimes it happens even when it’s not an accurate term. This is what has happened with the terms MOLLE and PALS. MOLLE became the nearly synonymous name with modern webbing used on plate carriers, belts, backpacks, and more.
Were no strangers to miniature guns, considering we have a couple of tiny armories worth of them. Ours are all 1:6 scale, though. Goat Guns, however, has some really cool 1:3 scale guns with moveable parts.
These AR 15 replicas, mini-AKs (and other makes and models) are pretty damn sweet.
Jeff de Boer is a potential House Chillycock armorer due to his location in the frozen north. We have considered having him bend the knee because he is an extremely talented artist. After our recent article on dog armor we figured we would see what other pets that could be sent into battle.
