Deer Gun A rare and desirable Vietnam War-era Deer gun realized a respectable $8,820, including premiums, at the August 13, 2020, Morphy Auctions sale. Manufactured by American Machine and Foundry Company in 1964, this single-shot 9mm pistol was designed to be dropped to South Vietnamese guerillas. Some 1,000 were manufactured, though their existence has been denied by the CIA. Apparently, they were never delivered as intended. Most were reported destroyed and only a few remain. For more information about this and future sales, contact Morphy Auctions at 877-968-8880 or visit morphyauctions.com.…

Paramount “Potato Digger” When the United States entered World War I, film director and patriot Cecil B. DeMille organized the Paramount Home Guard to train and equip actors, stage hands and crews to help deal with the national emergency. Uniforms were supplied by Paramount’s costume department and arms were supplied by James S. Stembridge, founder of Stembridge Gun Rentals. One of the pieces fielded by the Guard was this Colt Model 1895 “Potato Digger” machine gun in .30-40 Krag. Though outmoded by 1917, the belt-fed “Potato Digger” provided practice and familiarity with autos to the tyro Hollywood warriors. Courtesy of Cinema Weaponry and the National Firearms Museum.…

shooting competitions

And why every rifleman benefits. NOBODY WANTS TO SUCK. Get a bunch of guys together for a friendly shooting match and, sooner or later, it’ll get serious. I’ve never known a guy to give even a friendly competition his half-effort. The best way for all of us to get better as riflemen is to compete with others. I learned this lesson while I was in the military. When I was on the combat pistol team at West Point, the matches we attended were against other service academies, and the sport was still new. While the competition was serious for us, it was a far cry from what occurred at the national level. Still, competition helped me identify areas where my shooting needed improvement. My next foray into competitive shooting occurred when I was…

not another ar

WHEN I FIRST HEARD of a bolt-action AR-pattern rifle from Utah-based Uintah Precision (pronounced “yoo-in-tuh”), I assumed it was for states where freedoms are restricted. But, once I got my hands on the UP-15 rifle, I knew that while those in regulation-happy states will certainly appreciate the effort, so will everyone else. AR Ergonomics Precision bolt-action rifles are hot right now with the explosion of the Precision Rifle Series (PRS) and the National Rifle League (NRL). One of the trends moving into the bolt-gun world is the presence of AR-15 ergonomics. With Barrett’s win as the Special Operations Command’s (SOCOM) Mk 22 Advanced Sniper Rifle (ASR), SIG Sauer’s launch of the long-awaited Cross ($1,779), and The Fix by Q ($3,299), AR ergonomics on precision rifles are becoming more popular. The reason for…

“IT’S BUILT IN AMERICA.” That’s one of the takeaways that SIG Sauer wants us to understand about the new Romeo2 red-dot optic, and that statement was emphasized during an interview with Andy York, president of the Electro-Optics Division at SIG Sauer. “In fact, they are made in Oregon,” he specified. Many optics are made overseas, which is a subject that is becoming important for concerned Americans who want this country to support U.S. job growth and become less dependent on other countries. In terms of optics, many intended for the commercial market come from Asia and feature pirated intellectual properties, as well. The reason? Cost. Some manufacturers can produce all-American optics, but the price of a scope jumps from $500 to $3,000 with other aspects being equal. It’s that dramatic. The…

last line: the triari

IN THE MILITARY SYSTEM of the ancient Roman republic, citizen-soldiers comprising the infantry corps were divided into three lines, the triplex acies, based on their experience and the quality of their equipment. The hastati of the first rank were generally the youngest soldiers, strong and eager but lacking in experience. Principes formed the second line, and these were men in their prime, well-equipped with some experience, and they could be relied upon to shoulder the weight of combat and campaign. Finally, the last line was comprised of the triarii. Well-versed in war and utilizing the best in arms and armor, the triarii served as a strategic reserve and were relied upon to stand firm if the first lines faltered. In recounting desperate military struggles, the Roman historian Livy left us…
