Snap Shots Week 6: Nice Fish … And a Pistol Bayonet

And we have a winner for Week Five “Rockin’ the Duck Pond and the Backward ‘N’ Brander.” Soon, Brena Bock will be able to emblazon her steaks with the Backward “N”RA for this: "Unaware of the new law, Og was arrested for hunting with an illegal assault sling," which she submitted though Facebook.

Typically, fishing with a rifle is frowned upon. But from 1888 through 1906, the magazine that would become American Rifleman was Shooting & Fishing. Thus, we have from our August 8, 1901, issue, Col. R.F. Stocking of Los Angeles and his companion J.F. Shirley along with the then-record black sea bass caught in the waters off Santa Catalina. It appears the colonel used fishing tackle, not a Krag-Jorgensen.

Keep it clean. Bloomberg probably pays an intern minimum wage to read this blog. Entries will be subjectively judged by staff editors between takes of the TV show, testing guns and making authors seem literate. The winner and others we deem worthy will be printed here. All judgements final. No returns. Winner will receive a random item from a box under Mark Keefe's desk the manufacturer did not want back, yet was marginally valuable enough to not throw away.

 

This week’s prize is one of the most useful we have offered to date. We were moving some boxes and came upon this long-hidden artifact wedged between a desk and the wall. Its discovery made us feel like Indiana Jones. Deliver the best caption and this baby can adorn your favorite rail-equipped handgun. That’s right; it is a genuine Laserlyte pistol bayonet with an even more genuine Ka-Bar with a Bowie-like blade. Object is new and unopened. Somewhat dusty, but packaging appears intact. And it looks sharp. Really, this is an exercise in muzzle discipline and a blood circle awareness waiting to happen.
