The saddest truth in politics is that people get the leaders they deserve

I’ll never make it as a photographer

Written By: Bob - May• 21•12

The gun on the top right is one of the first 4 Detonics MTX-H modular .45s made. The one on the bottom is the only Boberg XR9-S Onyx Edition in the world.

This deserves to be such a much cooler-looking, better-quality picture.

This one of just the Boberg (in an appropriated M&P 9c IWB holster) with the ammo I tested it with and a loaded spare mag is a little better. And yes, the bullet is supposed to be ass-end up in the magazine.

And one more.

    I meant to shoot the one Oleg has this past weekend, but we had so many other things to shoot, we never got around to it.

    Regardless, looks like fun… and a hell of a way to burn the crap out of your index finger after mag-dumping and removing it from the trigger guard…

      Actually, it didn’t get very warm, but that may be because of how I was firing it. I was just loading 5 at a time, and firing off-hand at a moderate pace at 10 yards, fast enough to keep the hits center-mass, but not really burning it down.

    On the photography, I finally just went to wally whirl and bought a tri fold project board like my kids were using for their science projects and use it. It’s nice and white and allows me to take decent photos without the flash most of the time. Plus it’s cheap I paid like 4 bucks and it folds up so I can put it between the desk and the wall until I need it. Now if I could just get a decent camera….
