Cool. In the case of a snake would you have time to unload one shell and replace with this? I've never been attacked by a snake so I've no idea.
Lol. I usually see them before they see me. We have cotton mouth's that will attack on occasion but I mainly only kill snakes in my neighborhood that are too close to the house, my pet, etc. Yeah I usually have time to drop a round out and drop in a snake load. If I am gonna go out into the woods around my house I go ahead and load the first chamber up with one of these. The next time I have to pop one I will post a pic. It definitely makes them easier to hit if they are moving though. I carry a North American Arms mini revolver in .22 mag around in my pocket a lot in the summer time and it always has one of these snake shells in the first chamber up.

I can't like this enough. I'm glad I'm not the only one who carries a Mak. What is the country of origin? Nice shoulder rig also. I really need to get a setup like that. Who made that, if I may ask?
Thank you. The Mak is a Bulgarian. I got the shoulder rig through Makarov.com back when they were in operation years ago. I don’t have the holster with me right now but I will look for a makers name on it when I get back to it.

Check out this solid state retro goodness. I had one like this when I was 10 or 12 years old. Don't remember how I came to have it. The antenna was broken off but if I held my breath just right i could get it on a station and if I jiggled the volume knob just the right way I could get the volume low enough nobody else in the house could hear it but me. I would lay in my bed and listen to it til I fell asleep. Funny the things you remember. I found this one on eBay a couple of weeks ago. It has the antenna and is in overall pretty good shape for an early 1970's radio. You have to jiggle the knobs to get everything just right but there is real good oldies station here that plays the same music that would have come out of it back then, sounds really good coming out of this thing.

I had a radio nearly identical to that I picked up at a yard sale. Had the same dial, bands, and the controls are in the same spot but the brand name was Olympia. The speaker did sound great. When I picked up my Grundig G5 I gifted it to some friends of mine. Cool vintage radidio.

My dad had one of those in the bathroom when I was a kid. He used to listen to it mainly in the morning getting ready to start his day. One day I switched it to the public service band and realized I could hear the NOPD on this thing. Between that radio and his old Lafayette base station CB radio, it's what led to my fascination with all things radio. Don't know whatever happened to that radio.

Funny how people get into the radio bug.
