Because two guns are better than one right?
It’s not uncommon to see odd weapons in third world countries where military, police forces and sometimes civilians or militias have had to create their weapons with what they had at hand. Former Ranger Jack Murphy over at Kitup worked with a member of the Iraqi of the SWAT team who put together this Frankengun. If you look closely you’ll see the hodgepodge of guns used to make this contraption.
It looks like the rifle was based off of an AK-47 receiver and makes use of a PKM barrel, Browning Hi-Power pistol grip and a cheap BB gun scope. A standard AK wasn’t good enough apparently.

The Lee-Enfield rifle chambered in the .303 cartridge was the rifle of choice of the British Empire for a number of years, and is still in service in many parts of the now former British Empire. The Canadian Rangers who help defend Canada’s Arctic territory have been using the venerable bolt-action Enfield since they formed in 1947.
Earlier models had been in service with the British army since 1895, according to the Juno Beach Centre, which commemorates the effort made by all Canadians during the Second World War. On its website, the centre noted that during the First World War, Canadian troops threw away their government-issued Ross rifles in favour of Lee-Enfields they picked up on the battlefield.
Thompson said after consulting with the Rangers, it was agreed that the new rifle would be in the 7.62mm/ .308 Winchester calibre, as this was best suited to meet the Rangers’ requirements. He noted that “.308 Winchester refers to a specific cartridge that is very similar to the 7.62 x 51 (NATO) cartridge, and is made by several companies.”

The handgun whether it be a pistol or a wheelgun is a classic tried and true defensive tool. From conceal carrying citizens to the street cop walking the beat, the handgun has had an important role in self defense for hundreds of years. There’s always a lot of debate over what handgun maker is the best, which caliber is the most effective, are steel frames better than plastic and so forth. While most of the arguements are just personal preference, what we can all agree on however, are the accessories we use with our handguns. Bad quality magazines and ammo can make even the most renowned pistol little more than a pretty paperweight. Likewise, an uncomfortable and restrictive holster can make carrying your handgun a burden.
During the past presidential elections back in 2008 the sales of guns and ammunition was through the roof, dubbing President Obama the “best gun salesman of the year”. Most of the guns and ammo buying spree was hype and fear of impending gun bans and restrictions, causing long waiting periods for gun orders and empty ammo shelves. Well election time is coming up very soon, and one of the biggest firearm manufacturers is ramping up to take full advantage of the potential boost in sales the current political climate may cause.
