I ran across those nifty pictures of some Soviet weapons. Some are clones and some real. With real pictures of thrown in with the owner’s gear collection.
Turns out I found and saved this old Colt advert back in 2014 and stored it away then forgot to talk about it here. The Colt offensive pistil is not talked about much and I don’t know much about it sad to say. I may or may not have more to say about it and the Colt SSP next week.
The Winchester Model 75 is one of my favorite target rimfires. It was developed and sold as a more affordable option to the EXCELLENT Model 52. The 75 came with match iron sights and was drilled to accept target blocks for mounting of optics like the Unertl scope.
The rifle has a detachable magazine. It uses the same magazine as the winchester model 52 so the 5 and 10 rounders will work, same as the mag block to make the gun single shot.
You can see the mag release button on the side. Also note the target block on the barrel in front of the receiver and the match rear sight.
While the 75 was intended to be a cheaper option, the rifles are still very accurate. It doesn’t weigh as much as the 52 so it’s not quite as steady in the hands from position shooting with a sling. The Model 75 is just a great rifle from a time when companies cared about making things like this.
A Wisconsin doctor had an underlying health condition and was worried about coronavirus, so she and her husband moved their daughter and her boyfriend to a separate residence for which the parents paid, prosecutors said Tuesday in court documents.
Then in late March the boyfriend allegedly shot both parents in the head in an apparent robbery and left them for dead in a ditch, according to the filing.
Wait for it… Get your magic 8 ball ready.
“This was a brutal execution,” Dane County assistant district attorney William Brown said, according to the Wisconsin State Journal of Madison.
The boyfriend, identified as Khari Sanford, 18, was charged with two counts of party to the crime of first-degree intentional homicide, use of a dangerous weapon. The second suspect, Ali’jah Larrue, 18, was charged as an accomplice, facing two counts of party to the crime of first-degree intentional homicide.
Potter was wearing pajamas and socks, while Carre was wearing only underwear, authorities said.
Investigators believe Sanford and Larrue planned to rob the parents after learning from the daughter that the couple was wealthy, The Associated Press reported.

The daughter told police Sanford was with her the night Sanford allegedly took the couple to the arboretum but investigators say text messages retrieved from her phone contradicted her story, the State Journal reported.
Sounds like a wonderful daughter.
It was unclear whether the daughter was facing charges in connection with the case.
