Furr Gatling Guns

I’ve always been interested in Gatling guns. I remember reading about them in a book on the history of Colt Firearms as a kid. When I first learned about the scale Furr Gatling Guns I started looking for one. FJ Vollmer had an offer price listed for them, and that put me out of the market at the time. Articles would appear in Machine Gun News or Small Arms Review about them. I was loaned a 1/3 scale 1874 Carriage Gun at one point. I’ve since acquired both a 1/3 scale 1876 Camel Gun and a 1/3 scale 1874 Carriage Gun. I’ve bookmarked every one that I’ve seen for sale, and hope to get those links both posted and archived here shortly.

In cleaning my desk, I just stumbled upon the manual for my 1874. So I scanned it for posterity. INSTRUCTIONS FOR 1874 MODEL

IPv6

So I’ve had IPv6 connectivity since September 2007 from my house, initially thanks to SixXS. I last reached out to one of my Service Providers just weeks before SixXS ended service. They continue to not support IPv6, nor have a schedule for supporting IPv6. My other provider has started supporting IPv6 for their home users, but on the business side it would appear to be a bit more difficult to gain connectivity with IPv6. Which reminds me I need to call them again, since their online support tools don’t support business customers. Hopefully you can see that I continue to have IPv6 connectivity. This connectivity is published from AS16881 via the LISP-Beta Network.

Serbu Super Shorty

It has been almost 20 years, or at least, according to this article by Jeff Zimba. The Serbu Super Shorty

As a close friend of Mark Serbu I asked him at a Knob Creek Machine Gun Shoot to make me the shortest possible AOW, Any Other Weapon in BATF Jargon. The oldest emails I have about this are from August 1997, so it must have been the April shoot that year. The original prototype was built on a Maverick 88, had the spring loaded folding grip, but the action bars would bind, per Mark it required a little English. Mark promised to get me another with improvements, number 300 was a Mossberg 500 that functioned flawlessly. I mention the number 300, because he promised number 100 would be mine if he ever reached that many. As well I have a Remington 870 based one, and a Holster.

Now we have a myriad of copies out there. Mossberg has even started to sell the Compact Cruiser AOW. Then we have the Typhoon 12 with a 5-round box magazine.
