Not a firearm, but this looks like a fun little plinker to own

These CO2 pistols are great fun. I don't have the Remington yet, but I've heard very good things about it.

From Dave Hardy's Blog Of Arms and the Law.

 

On SSRN: The Janus-faced Second Amendment: Looking Backward to the Renaissance, Forward to the Enlightenment. I've just started circulating it to law reviews. It has two themes:

 

1. The 2A has two clauses because it had two independent purposes, each with a different constituency. Classical Republicans wanted a guarantee against the militia, as a system, being neglected. Jeffersonians want a guarantee of an individual right to arms. For most of the Framing period, a person, group, or State chose one of the other. With the Virginia ratifying convention of 1788, someone finally realized they could do both and please both groups. To construe the right to arms as limited to militia service (as the Heller dissenters did) is to misconstrue the history. They were separate ideas, and to the extent we can assign importance, the right to arms was universally seen as more important.

2. In any event, the modern National Guard is emphatically not the militia of the Constitution. The militia were a local body, the citizenry, under command of the governor, and only able to be called into Federal service for three reasons, all designed to involve service within the U.S. (repel invasion, suppress insurrection, enforce the laws of the Union). Under the Constitution, they were to be trained by the States, and led by officers appointed by the States. As the Heller dissent (this time correctly) notes, the militia was meant to be a counterpoise to Congress's power to create an army. Madison in Federal No. 46 points this out clearly.
The modern NG was created by 20th century statutes as a Federal force, a reserve component of the Army, with Federal training and Federally-approved officers, able to be called into Federal service for any reason, including foreign service. It was specifically created pursuant to the Congressional power to create armies.

Seems like that MG needs a man on it and ammo rigged to it. Also. Perhaps sandbags or splinter shields around it?

An Sdkfz-251 half-track under it would be more appropriate.

Kinda hard to have that on an upperdeck. Best done with a landing craft.

Is this an 1811 then?  ;)

 

Quite a good idea to make an inline ignition muzzle loading pistol from a 1911 grip.

You come up with some really great links, Shep. I've never seen anything remotely like that.

This is not official config, official one was with tripod and shield and was very popular and accurate in use. Bipod was for "oh shit" quick firing.

A-H copied "frame mount" also from an Italian improvised mount.  As can be seen it was pretty sturdy affair and enabled good stabilization of the gun while firing.

While I really like Forgotten weapons, there are more than a few errors when it comes to the employment of the weapons that are not well covered in the English literature.

It is a piece offered for auction and that is what the collector selling it had. Sadly ancilliary equipment gets lost most of the time, when it is not bolted to the gun itself.

Ian McCollum also does not have a military background, so he can only go by what is written in books. Often by authors who themselves do only have a passing knowledge of fighting a battle. And this shows.

Who needs .300 Blackout if you have a 7.62 AK?  Refinement will be interesting.
