This Article is a Must Read: Why Yong Women Want AR-15 rifles

Sorry, President Obama. As young women, we prefer an AR-15 “assault” rifle with a 30-round magazine for self-defense.
In fact, we wouldn’t want to be stuck at home without one. In the wake of mass murders like Sandy Hook and the horrific rapes and murders of thousands of women each year, pepper spray, mace, or five-round handheld pistols aren’t going to cut it.

Fun Rifle: The Suomi M31

The Suomi M31 semi automatic rifle is a product of its time, heavy rugged and reliable. The Finns designed the Suomi sub machinegun in the late 1920s and early 1930s. The original Suomi sub machinegun was designated the K/P 31. The Suomi KP 31 was a great success in the Winter War of 1939-1940. The Finnish Army succeeded despite great odds.

The Suomi M31 is a descendent of the famous KP 31. By today’s standards, it’s weak 9mm pistol cartridge and heavy weight, make it an impractical weapon. It is a great historical piece, a grand relic from a war of national survival. 

The M31 has a new receiver and BATF compliant parts. The heavy weight and sturdy construction of the M31 are conducive to reasonable accuracy.

Sweden, Germany, Denmark, used the Suomi KP 31. The Soviet Union copied the design of the drum magazine.

Enjoy the Suomi while you can!

Gun Grabbers

We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender.  Winston S. Churchill

They must fail; you have seen their shameless exploitation of tragedy to attempt total confiscation of privately owned firearms. Stinking California Bolsheviks and a collection of blue state cockroaches, who cannot run their own failing states, authored this plan. Their aim has nothing to do with public safety, children, or the public well being. Their aim is to disarm the population in their plan to consolidate power and control. The liberal has decided to strip the only means of protection from the American public and leave us vulnerable to criminals and our enemies. This is foolhardy at best, treason at the worst. I am ashamed they have taken in so many citizens of this great country. I am also aghast at the politicization of this issue by elected officials.

This same tactic was used by the Nazis, the Communists, and every cheap tin horn dictator in the third world; disarm and enslave. The Bill is rights is not given to us by the Constitution, they are human rights codified in the Constitution. That is a big difference. Tell your elected officials that you know the difference; tell them to stop this activity immediately.

The French Berthier Rifle

The French Army used the Berthier rifle in both World Wars. It emerged, in carbine form, in the early 1890s as a replacement for the obsolete Gras rifles used by the French cavalry.   The 1886 Lebel and the Russian Mosin-Nagant M1891 are related to the Berthier design. The rifle had several improvements resulting in the Model 1907, Model 1907-15, and the Model 1916. The Model 1916 has a capacity of five shots, an increase over the previous models, which held only 3 shots. All models saw extensive service in the Great War. French small arms have a rich and colorful history. The French Foreign Legion and French Colonial forces used the Berthier Model 1907. They found the rifle robust and easy to maintain, especially in the tropics. The Berthier supplemented the Lebel rifle in the trenches. It was used to equip black regiments in the U.S. 93rd division which operated in the French sector and under French command.  U.S. Soldiers hated the Berthier rifles. 

After the war, Greece, Poland, and French colonies were supplied Berthier rifles as military aid. The French Army retained the Berthier for second line use. The Model 1916 saw considerable action in the Second World War.  First, he French Army used the rifle before their defeat in 1940. Second, the Germans issued captured French Berthier rifles to Atlantic Wall. The Germans captured many Berthier rifles from the defeated Polish Army. In rear areas on the eastern front captured Berthier rifles were issued to anti partisan forces.

Berthier rifles are a fun challenge to shoot. Fortunately 8x50 Lebel ammunition is available from Privi Partisan. Some French rifles are marked “N” for use with “Balle N” 8x50 ammunition. Do not use surplus Balle N ammunition in a Berthier rifle. Developed for machineguns, Balle N generates unsafe pressure in Berthier rifles. As most of these rifles are now over 90 years old; this is an important safety consideration.
