Sheesh, do I have to notice all the mistakes all the time? Maybe it's just my nit-pickey personality, since I've run out of Lorazepam.

JAVOL!
Pardon me, fritz, but I think you meant to write 7.92x57mm.

Nits are delicious and low in calories.

ETA: I enjoyed this article, and learned a good deal. I never considered that motorcycles were "drafted" into military use during the war, but it does make sense. Bad nazi! No Buell for you!

My neighbor emigrated from the Soviet Union in the 1970s. He grew up in the outskirts of Moscow during the war, and remembers the war years with the dual pressures of the KGB and the sounds of German guns in the distance. There isn't a lot of love lost between him and his country of birth, but I would love to hear his opinions about a Ural.

How 'bout they get a hack setup, and YOU test it?

I would welcome a surprise package from Mother Russia.

My neighbor Boris can read Solzehnitsyn while we go from bar to bar on the Ural.

It would be wicked awesome, no doubt. And full of Solzehnitsynesque goodness.

Wait a moment! Urals are motorcycles, and those are DANGEROUS. You are a crafy one, Pushrod...

Don't be ashamed. I was slicing the cheese all weekend.

Does your proximity to the Everglades swamp give you plausible deniability for any random clouds of methane?

I have 3 old Mauser bolt-action rifles in 8mm.

It has a steel plate rifle butt and will beat the hell out of your shoulder after 50 rounds. By 100 rounds your shoulder is tenderized. By 150 round it is numb and tingling. By 200 rounds your socket has been beaten into jelly and will be bruised for two weeks.

I love those rifles.

Accurate as hell, too.

No, but my trusty cabbage-eating flatulent cat does...when he's around. I hire him out for indoor paint removal jobs. Otherwise I blame the kid.

I have two 8mm VZ24's, straight bolt, one in the white, the other near mint.

I also have an FN49 in 8mm. Because of the superior gas system, it kicks like a 12 ga. shooting target rounds.

The Mausers (albeit Czech ones) kick like mules, and are always the last ones left that have ammo on any shooting expedition. That, and the 10ga. Mossberg Goose Gun. Ouch.

Those FN49s are cool. They were designed by the same fella who finished the design of the Browning HP when Browning had his massive heart attack at the FN plant.

Cuddy, you got a C&R License?
