Today I decided to do a writeup on the Springfield Armory M6 Scout! This survival weapon was designed for the Air Force in the 1950s and was used until the 1970s. It is chambered in both for civilians .22lr+.410 or .22 hornet+.410 for military, and offer a pretty solid emergency backup weapon in case of an unplanned plane landing. The standard finish is parkerized, but a stainless version was made because it is rustproof. The stock on this weapon can hold four .410 shells and 15 .22lr bullets for the civilian version. The original military version held twelve .22 hornet rounds. Interestingly, those who were issued the M6 were taught how to make an emergency grip for the barrel of the gun by wrapping part of the parachute around it. One unique feature that really caught my eye was the "squeeze bar" trigger, which was implemented because they wanted the trigger to be usable in any weather situation, and a lever is less likely to fail than a trigger (military version, all but first pic). If you want to own this cool little rifle, expect to pay around $600-800. As always, thank you for reading, double tap and follow for more every day, and I hope you've enjoyed!

Colion Noir responds to a video promoting the anti-gun "March For Our Lives" which opened with the intentionally provocative question, 'what if our politicians weren't the bitch of the NRA?" Colion's blistering response answers the March's emotional rhetoric with logic and facts: "what if the FBI had done its job and stopped the killer," he asks. "What if we had put armed guards in every school five years ago when the NRA called for it?”
