Gun Review: Czech UK Vz.59 Machine Gun

The Czechs are pretty well known for their firearms designs. With the CZ-75 as the poster child for their firearms industry; it’s pretty safe to say they know what they’re…

TTAG Witnesses the Death of some “People Carriers”

Lucky Gunner aimed to not disappoint when they promised the destruction of several vehicles via heavy artillery. While the aim of the re-enactment operators of the Sherman Tank could have been a little more spot on, they still got the job done; with a little help from some guys whistling Dixie. The end result: total annihilation of a Dodge Caravan, a Blue Bird School Bus and a by-standing sedan. As one RSO quipped to me following the destruction, “They had it coming” Guess he hates mini-vans too.

Day Two of the Lucky Gunner Blogger Shoot; This is the End My Friends

With the lyrics of Jim Morrison echoing in my head, the RSO called the final cease fire at 16:30. The 30-odd [in both senses of the word] gun bloggers assembled on the firing line lowered their weapons. Our weekend of full-auto frivolity had finished. We spent the morning in a pistol class run by Tom Given of Rangemaster. The afternoon was devoted to blasting away with full auto KRISS SMGs, Sphinx pistols and a bunch of Kel Tec goodness that Oleg Volk brought with him. I definitely want to say that Angela and her cohorts at Lucky Gunner organized the event with near-Glock perfection. Several junket vets reckoned they’d more fun this at the Lucky Gunner blogger shoot than they did at the Knob Creek machine gun shoot. Stay tuned for range reports, tank videos and full auto fun. Until then, here’s some of the hardware to tide you over.

Hot weather, hot lead, helicopters, attack dogs, gleeful gun writers and a bevy of badass ballistics. Day One of the Lucky Gunner Blogger Shoot (and they didn’t mean that literally) may not have been the Knob Creek machine gun shoot, but it wasn’t a day at my local gun range either. The Lucky Gunner Ammo Girls kept us hydrated and our guns well fed while we transformed a peaceful Smoky Mountain meadow into Lead City. Unfortunately, the Ma Deuce machine gun ran out of ammo before I got to it [ED: not so lucky gunner now, eh Mr. Bond?]. And the cannons missed the minivan. A tank operated by WW2 re-enactors took it out instead. The video above only shows a fraction of what went down in that Tennessee tract. Stay tuned to TTAG for more in depth coverage.

Last week our fearless leader called me up and asked me if I wanted to go represent TTAG at the Lucky Gunner Gunnie Awards in Knoxville, TN over Memorial Day Weekend. (Click here to vote for your favorite no-holds-barred firearms-focused website; you have until the end of Friday to do so.) TTAG’s been nominated in both Politics and Gear Reviews. “Roger that,” I said, figuring I’d go to the awards shindig, do a little schmoozing and report live from the red carpet. Turns out I was wrong about what the weekend would entail, but in the best possible way . . .
