The above crib pays homage to the prodigious gun designer John Moses Browning (who created among other classics, the M1911 pistol that was standard-issue for the army for nearly 75 years andinteresting triviais the state gun of Utah). The front railing of the crib was designed to emulate the stocks of two 1895 Winchester lever-action rifles, the crib poles are made of steel rifle barrels, the headboard features Brownings buckmark insignia and cut-outs of the Auto 5 shotgun. There are additional, subtler gun details that you can read about at Guns and Tactics but rest assured that a great deal of thought, planning, and design ingenuity went into this piece.
North American Arms Black Widow Mini-Revolver
I tried the .22 caliber North American Arms Black Widow Mini-Revolver yesterday. It belonged to a friend who was shooting next to me at the range. He carried the revolver in a small pocket holster which slipped easily into an out of his pocket. The best thing about this revolver is its small size and lightweight. It is an excellent choice for a pocket weapon as long as you don’t mind the small caliber size of the bullet and the single action capability of the gun. After each round fired you have to pull back the hammer to fire it again.
During my test of the revolver I found it to be surprisingly powerful and accurate. I was used to shooting 22LR caliber ammunition from my handguns and found the .22 magnum ammunition used in this revolver to be much more powerful.
