War is horrific and sometimes you have to take the life of your fellow man in the most brutal and extravagant ways
and you just dont have a good enough weapon to do it as hard as you want.
That's when you start strapping every weapon you have to every other weapon you have, and hope that physics is in a good enough mood today to let you fire knives out of your machine gun. Like these guys:
Anti-Tank Sniper Rifle
When the Nazi war machine rolled into Stalingrad, they had no idea what was in store for them: Crazy ass Russians. The Red Armys elite sniper teams, when not busy killing Nazis, used their spare time to think up new and interesting methods of killing Nazis. In one of these epic brainstorming sessions, Zaitsev, probably after frantically sketching something in his notebook while making explosion noises with his mouth, came up with the idea to take a scope from a Sniper Rifle and attach it to a giant 14.5 mm PTRS-41 Anti-Tank Rifle.
The Drip Rifle
Troopers William Scurry and Buntie Lawrence built what they called 'Ottoman Bafflers.' Using bits of string and old ration tins, Scurry and Lawrence MacGyvered up a gun that fired all by itself, using drips of water falling between two cans, or taut strings being burnt through by candles.
Vehicle-Borne Improvised Explosives Devices (VBIED)
The Islamic State was adept at turning various makes and models of cars into vehicle-borne improvised explosive devices (VBIEDs). Armor is fixed to large and small vehicles alike in order to make it more difficult for Iraqi and American forces to destroy them before they reach their target.
Grenades are weapon that is a must have in an urban environment, if you dont have real ones, make one. You can throw it yourself or going back to medieval days, build a catapult to launch one or some. Read the rest of improvised weapons.
What a lame article.
Forget who you plagiarized?
In other words, about average for 'Am Shooting Journal'.
We used to put
BBs’ in Spit Wads!
Just go to Home Depot. Plenty there to improvise with.
I tried searching with no luck.
Not for the ironically impaired.

Then there's the whole malware thing that could be dropped onto your computer from a visit.
Anytime a 'blogger', such as this one doesn't post an article in its entirety, the motives of the OP is suspect.
You’re link took
Me to a Porno site!
Thanks for the post, very funny piece.
Moose marines is just a play off bear cavalry. The reason thats funny is because a few articles back by the same source there was a story about a guy who went to take a leak and got jumped by a moose and a bear then supposedly took them both out with his handy pocket derringer.
Clearly then, if the Russians are employing bear cavalry there is also a potential threat from squadrons of Moose Marines and our troops have to be prepared.
Sorry, dont know why. Just do an image sesrch on “bear cavalry”, it a much riffed meme.
No jawbone of an ass?
