This Sunday, I decided to feature one of my own ugly guns.

More on the The Khyber Pass Martini-Henri Pistol.

I look forward to these posts, and jump on one as soon it's uploaded.

Interesting! I would not be able to pass one like that up myself, either.

it may be ugly.
but if it works,it'll get you a REAL gun.
if your thinking like the ww2 guys making the Liberator .45 single shot,dirt nasty to look at,but works when you need it.
just like the Khyber pass'er who did that one,who decided to pimp up the gat for the pa zizel,and thus make them seek to get one,they own selves yo.
it just needed some gold and silver too for appearences sake,but when your stuck with just a hammer,chisel,and a brit left over rifle that was obsolete after five years from it's inception when the bolt gun came in vogue.
well,we must make do with what's at hand....and for what it's worth?....it's a gun,AND will ensure your life continues,by removing threats,case closed.

It is filmed in the gate of heaven kyber pass
It is a torrent download and well worth the hassle.

If I had been in your shoes, I wouldve bought it too. That gun is SOPPING with history. I think it looks pretty good, myself. Alot better than other hack jobs you see floating around.
