COMMENT

The Pedersen Device is an attachment developed during World War I for the M1903 Springfield rifle that allowed it to fire a short 0.30 (7.62 mm) caliber intermediate cartridge in semi-automatic mode. This wonder weapon was developed to allow infantry to dramatically increase their rate of fire while on the move, while also allowing the rifle to be used in conventional bolt action mode for long-range fire from the trenches.

This very rare collectors item is up for auction, with a starting bid (or buy now?) of $23000

It does not include a magazine, so you’d have to procure one before you got to use this beauty. I’m sure anyone that would pay $23,000 for this device probably wouldn’t be shooting with it though.

I’m not good with naming breeds of small dogs, but I do know that she appears to be packing a full size Springfield XD(m) in a Galco Ankle Glove .  I could be wrong about the gun though, because it doesn’t appear Galco makes an ankle glove specifically for the XD(m)… not to say that the 3″ XD 9/40 one wouldn’t work.

Unfortunately Galco hasn’t caught on yet and mentioned this in the “Canine Products” section of their website. :P

UPDATE: Anonymous and Paladin from the comments say the dog is a Miniture Pinscher.  Thanks guys.

UPDATE 2: Jesse informed me in the comments, that the gun is a Walther PPS

If you haven’t yet seen this movie, please go buy it (HERE) or rent it!

This is definitely one of the best opening movie scenes ever.  Not only is the camera work and computer graphics work well done, but the choice of song ( Buffalo Springfield – For What It´s Worth ) is absolutely perfect and sets the tone for the rest of the movie.

That song gives me goosebumps… it’s going on my ipod a.s.a.p.

Yea, she calls a magazine a clip about 5 times… forgivable though in this case because of context.  I’m sure she must have got blasted for it in the comments because she locked them and corrected it in the video captions.   She is definitely pro 2nd Amendment, down to earth, and otherwise fairly knowledgeable about guns, and gun law in her state.

If she started doing more videos on guns (and shooting), I’m sure she could get a huge following.  She seems to be doing pretty well on subscribers just off her makeup videos alone, but adding more gun videos could create a niche that I am not sure yet exists on YouTube.  It might help get some more girls into shooting and guns in general!
