Mike Rogers of Lone Star Arms, a man who knows a thing or two about Russki semi-auto shotguns, forwarded a YouTube link to a mind-numbing work by video auteur evlblkwpnz. The point of the video, we think, was to demonstrate the beneficial effects of a prototype screw-on “booster” that apparently raises the pressure in a short-barrel smoothbore enough to make it cycle correctly, even when it’s fed crappy, rusty old ammo from a drum mag. But in the scene above . . .
our demonstrator stares down the barrel of his fully-loaded shotty in order to install said booster. We half expected to see his hat fly up in the air along with most of his frontal lobe. Thankfully not.
The video is six months old, and while you might expect mad gun handling skillz like those to prematurely end an otherwise promising career, we see that evlblkwpnz has uploaded his most recent effort only a month ago. So apparently he’s still kicking. A good thing, too, as someone is going to have to sign for the IGOTD award he has coming his way. We think we have a pretty good idea at what he’ll be pointing that VEPR 12 pretty soon.
