This is Perfection - in hardened steel, from the Czech Republic. You hold this beautiful, and most lovely precision device in your hand, and it whispers to you: "Take me home with you! - even if we have to wait for many, many weeks. I will not ever let you down. I am perfection, made manifest in steel." And your beating heart and your thinking brain, knows this to be the truth.

The Liberal Party of Canada has begun another abusive assault against a lawful, honourable & valuable segment of Canadian society. The Liberals are wrong, wrong - and wrong. The facts and the data prove the Liberal's fraud. The Liberals are error, foolishness, and dishonesty. Their policy reeks with a rotting stench of deception, which they then bake into a "Feast of Falsehood", which they will then try to feed to those who choose to remain tragically ignorant of human reality.

Firearms are tightly regulated in Canada, each gun-owner must be licensed by the Federal Police agency (the RCMP), and real training is required before a Firearms Licence can be obtained. Membership (and training) at a regulated "Gun Club" is further required to get a "Restricted" license, which allows the purchase of handguns, the use of which is tightly regulated. This works well. No one can just walk into a gun store and buy a firearm in Canada. But for those who are interested in the Shooting Sports, there is a place for them to compete and to work on improving their abilities. It is a fine sport, which encourages discipline, responsibility, and skill acquisition. And history shows that an educated, skilled and disciplined population, is a pre-condition for the maintenance of a free and democratic society.

The Liberals want to end this completely, because they seek political gain by trading on ignorance, and at the expense of a socially valuable Canadian tradition. That our national leaders should track down such a foolish and incorrect path of fraud and social abuse, we find surprising and most curious. More madness, it seems. Our Boy Wonder is now telling "Lavrovs" to us. Not good. Not good at all.

NZ-85, virtual and real - a fine piece of engineering from China. It's a well-made copy of the Czech CZ-85. It was an early purchase, and has proven to be a reliable and fun little target shooter.

Tokarev's Second Symphony in B-Sharp! (Key of 7.62 x 25 mm)

In the Great Debate between the 9mm and the 45cal, we have decided not to take a side. Truly, they are both good. Remington R1 in .45 cal., and NP-29, 9mm, in the 45-form factor. Everyone is beautiful, in their own way, right? ;)

An absolutely beautiful Colt-45 CGM ("Combat Government Model") Gold Cup target piece. Also a wonder platform for practical competitions, and Canadian IPSC meets. One cannot help thinking the sernum "FG" prefix on this unit must stand for "Freaking Good!" A good friend of mine used this unit in Practical Shooters competitions, in Canada and USA. Note the rounded hammer (not the more common variety, with the typical horn shape). It makes holster use easier, as the hammer-horn tends to get caught on clothing, when one is trying to be "Quick-Draw McGaw"... :D

A magnificant Webly "WG - 1892" Model, from "CSL", which is stamped on the top of the barrel. The CSL trademark stood for the "Co-operative Society of London", an organization that acted as a buying-group to offer English Servicemen, in Victorian times who were off to defend the Empire, a price-break on their cost of kit. Soldiers of those days were required to outfit themselves, and if they could afford it, they would buy one of these nickel-plated beauties, and take it with them to Africa, India, Malaysia, or where-ever their duty took them. This one is original, and looks like it did not travel too far, or if it did, it was very well looked after. It is nick-named the "Church-Steeple" Revolver, because of the unique fluting shapes on the cylinder. It is a piece of pure Victorian beauty, and has original, unique "Tiger Wood" hand-grips. You can see, the wood of the grips really does look like tiger-stripes. I bought this lovely antique from a fellow who had acquired it from a Toronto Surgeon, which offers some providence. The Webly serial number is 4 digits. :)
