The Smallest Revolver EVER?

Wednesday, May 27th, 2009
A while back I ran into a really, really small revolver. A flare gun, actually, a .22 pinfire flare gun, to be precise, but still the smallest working revolver I have ever seen. And when i say small, I mean... Seriously puny: [caption id="attachment_64" align="aligncenter" width="300" caption="Xythos Revolver - "]Xythos Revolver - [/caption] [caption id="attachment_65"… Read More

One of my old favorites.

Monday, May 25th, 2009
Many years ago, I remember watching a movie where the bad guys used a very unique machine pistol. It was fairly compact, had a high rate of fire, and it's most distinguishing feature was a cylindrical, high capacity magazine, mounted to the rear of the barrel, above the grip of the weapon. A most unusual configuration indeed, but I just loved the look. If you haven't figured it out already, I'm talking about the venerable Calico M950, aka the Calico Liberty III, from Calico Light Weapon Systems: [caption id="attachment_50" align="aligncenter" width="300" caption="Calico M950/Liberty III - 9mm, 50r Mag"]Read More

A Daywalkers Machine Gun

In the movie "Blade" starring Wesley Snipes, we see Blade using a variety of weapons. Clearly he loves his sword. But he's also a big firearm guy, and one of his more interesting weapons is a modified Mac 11 sub-machine gun he totes alongside his sword:

The Ugliest Pistol. Ever.

Monday, May 18th, 2009
Today I'm going to introduce you to what I think is perhaps one of the ugliest pistol designs I have ever come across. I found a couple of pics of it on my hard drive, and beyond the fact that it has a profile not even a mother could love, I couldn't figure out where the pics came from. However I do know that it is called the FP-45 Liberator: [caption id="attachment_37" align="aligncenter" width="299" caption="FP-45 Liberator"]FP-45… <a href=Read More

Ridiculous Gun Fights.

Monday, May 11th, 2009
There are unrealistic gun battles, and then there are unrealistic gun battles. As a fan of Anime, I've seen my share of crazy, wacky and just plain impossible shooter stunts, but sometimes I have to scratch my head. Especially when said stunts are actually from a live action movie, as opposed to an anime. I speak of the movie Equilibrium, no less, which, while being one of my favorite Christian Bale flicks, besides "American Psycho" and "The Dark Knight" of course, also happens to have some of the most unrealistic gun play ever conceived by man. Of course I must admit that I love every campy second of it. However what brings me to post today… Read More
