Meat “Natasha”, a Mosin Nagant bolt action rifle given to me years ago by my uncle. She fires a 7.64 x 54mmR round and has been “sporterized” (not by me) to reduce weight at the expense of added muzzle jump and recoil. This rifle is 87 years old yet still fires accurately and the action is still smooth. #mosinnagant #mosin #boltaction #rifle #worldwar2 #antiquefirearms #russianrifle
Very rare brass barrel blunderbuss pistol signed on top of barrel “J.Finch N.York”. Walnut stock with original lock made by Sharpe. Late 18th century. Length 12”. #antiquefirearms #antiqueguns #antique
I love this old pocket gun. Manufactured just before 1900, this old S&W was the Gucci EDC handgun of it's time. After all these years it still has plenty of fight left in it.
Miniature percussion pocket pistol, deformed bone with scripture & claypipe
Whether it’s pistols, climbing, whiskey, or economics - my people have quite the capability for making contributions in diverse arenas. These are original firearms from the mid to late 18th century, likely used during the War for Independence. Displayed at the incredible firearms collection in Fort Ticonderoga.

The biggest wabbit I've ever bagged. He/she/ze was about the size of one of those little yappy dogs that your neighbor has, but doesn't take care of so it never ever shuts up. I mean never... like it's vocal cords were carved from hard wood. It hasn't gone quiet a single minute since the year 2005. I hate that dog. This was a satisfying kill.
