A Brough Superior SS100 surfaces in deepest Russia

The rare and beautiful Brough Superior SS100 is one of the most famous motorcycles ever made. Originally marketed as the ‘Rolls-Royce of Motorcycles,’ each unit shipped with a guarantee that it was capable of 100 mph. The last place you’d expect to find a Brough Superior is in the heartland of Russia, over 2,500 miles from the Nottingham factory where it was built. But that’s where this stunning example lives: in the Motorworld by V. Sheyanov museum in the former ‘closed city’ of Samara. ...

FNX-45 Tactical- kinda my first look:

Not sure what happened to my first thread on the FNX-45 Tactical. (I did a side by side with my 1911 Combat Commander (ATI version)) Anyway, through a flurry of trades over the last couple of weeks, I ended up with several pistols that I had a hankering for but didn't want to drop that much money. At the top of the wanna list was the FNX-45. I ended up with the Tactical version. I had previous shot my friends FNP-45 (predecessor to the FNX-45) and really liked it. What's not to like about 1...

Leupold DeltaPoint Pro Micro Red Dot Sight 2.5 MOA – Review

Leupold DeltaPoint Pro U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- Since my introduction to red dots on pistols several years ago with the Roland Special, I haven't strayed much from the Trijicon RMR. There have been other mini red dots on the market that have caught my attention, specifically the Shield RMS, Holosun HS507C, and the Leupold DeltaPoint Pro. Since the DeltaPoint Pro has been arguably the strongest competitor to the Trijicon RMR, I wanted to get some quality time with one. Before we get into my ex...

Paul Harrell On 22tcm vs. 5.7×28 vs. 7.62×25

I think this is an informative video.  However, I know the FN 5.7 is an extremely reliable firearm.  I’d like to see this expanded to evaluate the Rock Island pistol shooting the 22tcm.  A review of the ammunition isn’t quite good enough to form an opinion.

How can I format the .mobi books I send to my Kindle so Amazon recognizes the the author field should be sorted LN FN even if the field shows FN LN. Amazon takes the author name literally and sorts it FN LN on the devices. Its as if the author field isn't an actual name and just another title. Either I send the file formatted with a comma (LN,_FN underscore is only shown here to indicate the space between the comma and the FN) and the author sort is right, but then the file shows up in Conten...

Reach Out & Touch

Objectively? It's big, heavy, holds only eight rounds, uses an ammunition feeding setup a lot more awkward than a detachable box magazine, has an external op rod of Rube Goldbergian complexity, fires an unnecessarily large round, and has the mechanical safety lever placed in an unsafe location. Also objectively? The weight soaks up the recoil of the powerful round, the sights are nearly ideal for long range accuracy with irons, and it was the best general-issue infantry rifle of its day.Watchi...
