We Have The Numbers, No Longer Are We The Forgotten Minority.

Gun Law Reform February 27, 2017

We Have The Numbers, No Longer Are We The Forgotten Minority.
2017. An election in Queensland which offers to change our nation and will vibrate and inspire the world. That is of course, “IF” the apathetic Firearm Owners of Queensland turn the telly off and aid the people who support them, to replace those corrupt puppets of the internationalist. A very big “IF” of course, but the key has turned.  The 2016 Federal election where 22 % of the voters excluded the major parties, Brexit, Trump, Le Pen, Geert Wilders are showing that the mainstream media is losing its grip on the minds of the people. They call it populist, but it’s the internet that exposes the fake news that has been rammed down our throats on the 6 o’clock news.

Minister’s Response to Letter Concerning Lever Actions.

Gun Law Reform January 3, 2017

To Police Minister and local State and Federal MPs

Dear Sir.

I am one of the two million (Crimtrac Annual Report 2015/16) Licensed firearm owners, who have conscientiously jumped through all the hoops and impositions, paid application fees, Permit to Acquire fees, and 20 or so renewal fees(which are more like un just fines) all created to punish us, for enjoying our sport and hobby. All of us are worn ragged with corrupt politicians incessantly crucifying the innocent pillars of the community, to appease the internationally financed socialist Gun Control, lusus naturae’s who could have their annual meeting in telephone box.

When Australia’s main party politicians, knowingly, plan to introduce further restrictions on firearm owners. Some licensed firearm owners might own one of the lever action shotguns, (technology that has been used in shotguns since 1887) and some will not, but all can immediately realise that if politicians are prepared …

The last few weeks I have been experiencing a touch of >the old writers block=. My life is if anything too carefree, nothing has stirred me of late except maybe some off chicken I found in the neighbours bin. Until one day when I was just sitting in the smoko room at Owen Guns minding my own business, chewing on my old girl=s table leg when the conversation stole my attention. Woolworths Limited has been cooperating with the one and only celebrity lisping chef >Jamie Oliver= on their advertising campaign for some time now. This on its own will not shock you but the fact that Woolworths have asked Farmers to pay for this advertisement personally makes the hair stand up on my back.

I return to work at least 2kgs heavier, the Festive Season was everything I expected and more. I was surrounded by humans that adored me, I single handedly destroyed every box and piece of Christmas paper in sight, food seemed to fall from the heavens I even got my chops around some Christmas cake when my old girl wasn’t looking. My best mate Ollie (a chocolate Labrador) came over and he let me chase him all afternoon. At the end of it all I was weak with exhaustion and could barely stand, I also felt sad because it was all over and all my friends had gone home. The excitement didn’t end there because days later it was New Years Eve and all our valued employees from Owen Guns came over and there was more food!

There has been a lot of talk about Christmas of late, my little family has been telling me mystifying tales about all the food and of all the colourful paper that I will surely destroy. It sounds like the perfect day, all my humans will be home, I will sample turkey, bacon, ham, there will be new things to chew and everyone will be so drunk they wont notice that I’ve trashed the joint. It seems too good to be true so I did a little research and found that I am one of the lucky ones. Christmas can be a horrible time for many four legged creatures like myself. A recent article in the Gympie Times revealed that a lot of animals get dumped at Christmas time for two main reasons. One is that people want to go on holidays and can’t take their animals …

016Lately I have been hearing that getting your gun licence is not exactly a simple operation and can take some time to process. This has prompted me to get the ball rolling and I have booked myself in to do the course with a nice man called Greg. It takes a whole day but I’m told we get to shoot afterwards. I have to get this done now because it can take the police weeks to process the application and that is time wasted when I could be shooting. I didn’t realise dogs could get into shooting until I saw Crusoe the Celebrity Dachshund’s latest movie where he goes hunting.

Chester’s Pick of the Week

Pin Up Guns by Chester December 8, 2015

I was prowling the store with my old girl when I came across this unique looking piece of equipment. My old girl noticed my fascination with this piece and shared with me the story behind it. This is the ‘Maegun’ it was named after her and was designed by ‘he who must be obeyed’. He wanted there to be a semi-automatic sporting rifle in Australia and if you want something done you sometimes have to do it yourself. For once it was the story behind the rifle that took my fancy and not the flavor.

On my time off this week my old girl and I travelled to the big smoke of Brisbane. It was incredibly different from the peaceful country side that Im acquainted with. When I first stepped out of my chauffeured motor vehicle I was hit in the face with a 1000 sounds, sights and most of all the smells. People moved in every direction and it was hard to know which ones would give the best pats and affection. I was in my element making it my personal task to say ‘hello’ to as many as I could, children were my number one priority because they to are small and friendly. Some of the city folk didn’t even acknowledge me but my old girl said that they weren’t worth my time anyway. She loved meeting all my new friends and I loved being told repeatedly that I …

This week it has come to my attention that there is confusion amongst non-shooters as to why people like guns or like shooting. I don’t understand why its so hard to comprehend, what Im learning daily is that we are all incredibly different. I for example love nothing more than throwing a slimy chicken neck down the back of my chops. My old girl is always drinking this purple stuff in a flimsy glass that I knock over occasionally and feel obligated to clean up. Its nowhere close to a good chicken neck but she guzzles it like it was the turkey of chicken necks. Her father or ‘he who must be obeyed” eats mountains of meat and baked beans that makes my old girl dry retch with just a whiff. Her mother “she who also must be obeyed” puts cheese on everything before consuming and “he who must be …

I came into the world three months ago, maybe that is too young to start writing but I was inspired by my great grandfather Jimi Hendrix. I got about to reading some of his editorials while working at Owen Guns, four days a week I assist the family by licking the floor clean and redesigning the employees shoes. As I am new to the world I like to test everything in my mouth, I put everything between my jaws just so I know what it tastes like. Knowledge is power and there are always new things to chew especially at the shop. Just the other day 50 new air rifles arrived and I licked the freshly oiled steel of a species known as Beeman, the Walnut stocks of a Zastava and most appealing of all bubble wrap. Today, a customer phoned up, as he had bought a second hand Brno …

62. Check for rust pits, oil rings, hornet nests, stuck patches, stuck pull-throughs, copper fouling, lead fouling, little fury animals, lumps of copper from gilding material, or lumps of plastic from shotgun wads or just plain dirt.
Hold the firearm or barrel with the breech end near a light source sunlight or a fluoro-light holding the muzzle six inches or so from your eye, move the barrel backwards and forwards, nearer and further from your eye so that you get a good picture of the surface of the inside of the barrel. Do not just see the bright light through it and consider that its good enough, looking through the barrel is easy you have to look into the barrel, look into the walls of the barrel, try and look into the pores of the barrel, look at …

Guarding the Muzzle

57. If the firearm has a fixed barrel and a bolt that cannot easily be removed the barrel has to be cleaned from the muzzle. Cleaning from the muzzle can be a problem if damage is done to the “crown” of the barrel as it will severely affect accuracy. So protecting the crown is a priority. A hard or dirty cleaning rod, rubbing on the inside of the barrel wears the critical edges where the bullet leaves the barrel. Any wear on these leading edges ruins any hope of accuracy. So to prevent this a Muzzle guard can be simply made, anything which can be a tight fit on the outside of the barrel, as an example like an empty 12 gauge cartridge case with the primer drilled out to accept the cleaning rod is a good example for …

USING THE CLEANING EQUIPMENT

Using the Cleaning Rod

52. Clean the barrel, from the breech where ever you can remove the bolt from the rifle or removing the barrel from gun as in a break barrel shotgun. If you have no padded vice or a cleaning stand, place a little piece of pine board, about six inches square on the floor, this is to rest the muzzle on as you push the cleaning rod through the barrel. Pine is quite soft and will not damage the “crown”( that is the inside of the dangerous end of your barrel the “muzzle” is the outside of the end of the barrel). The wooden block gives you something to push against.

53. Screw on the correct sized Bronze (Brass) brush to the rod, apply the correct solvent to the brush, Rimfire, shotguns and low velocity …

External Storage of a Firearm.

48. Rusting cannot occur without oxygen, water has no shortage of it , dryness and coldness reduce the rusting process. Warmth melts your rust inhibitors and moisture speeds up the process. Try not to leave guns in any type of gun bag or case, whatever it is made of, all linings hold moisture which cannot escape. Most gun bags and cases are nearly air tight, when firearms are stored in them, it is almost always a death sentence, as the moisture which is always present in woodwork or the lining of the bag has no escape. When it evaporates with temperature changes it re-condenses itself on the cold steel surfaces, then it oxidises, it looks like rust it tastes like rust, believe it, it is rust.

Protecting the Bore, Storing, Not Boring, I Hope?

43. The barrel has to be clean and dry when its expected to be used for the competition or hunt, always clean out storage grease or any oil before going out shooting. Discharging a firearm with a coating of oil on the inside of the barrel, acts as a barrel obstruction, which causes hydrostatic compression rings inside the barrel. They are impossible to remove and as the bore diameter is greater in these areas, gas may burn through between the bullet jacket and the bore causing accuracy loss and damaging the barrel even to a greater extent.

For Short Term Storage.

44. When the internals of the firearm have been throughly cleaned, coat a clean flannel patch with a light good quality gun oil as it gets into the pores of the barrel steel, and …

Rust Inhibiting Products

40.There are many products on sale in the gun trade for resisting rust, most suffer from ambitious advertising blurbs that are proved to wash away on the first downpour at the range. Others are for external use on the firearm only. I have been looking for the ideal rust inhibitor since 1959 and still have not found it. Rust is the greatest destroyer of firearms, it even beats governments, its a relentless 24 hours a day killer of guns and once it establishes itself by making a pit hole, the steel or stainless steel, that it has eaten into can never be replaced so it is very important to resist it.

Oils Ain’t Just Oils

Lubricating Oil

37. Take some time to chose a good lubricating oil for the moving parts of a firearms mechanism. It can also be used for a short term rust preventative in the barrel, when the firearm is being used every few days. There are many unsatisfactory oils on the market. Gun oil for lubricating should not be two thin like many of the spray on lubricants as they seem to run off very quickly or evaporate not long after they are sprayed. Petroleum based oil rots wood work and dissolves some plastics, rots rubber grips on pistols and butt pads on rifles, so stay away from all of them. Some thicker oils gum up and stick some of the moving parts together, some evaporate in hot weather leaving a gummy residue, some solidify in cold weather. In …

The propellent powder we burn is non-corrosive and the primer residue is non-corrosive, the copper projectile is not like lead which needs a lubrication to stop it from smearing the barrel. So why, many ask, do we have to go to so much trouble in cleaning the barrels. Well at the beginning of the 20th century when we had corrosive powder and corrosive primers, cleaning had to carried out on a religious basis or within days they would be rusty pipes, but there was little problems with copper or metal fouling as the copper jacketed projectiles for the conservatively loaded cartridges of the day, 30/30, 303 British and 22 Hornet were only producing velocities of about …

Cleaning Solutions, Powder Solvents

28. A cleaning solution or what is commonly called a ‘Power Solvent’ is fine for cleaning shotguns and most 22 Rimfire rifles, most of them are similar to Hoppe No 9 Powder solvent. Just soak the cleaning brush and apply to the barrel, it’s ideal for removing the burnt powder, fouling, and build up of wax lubricants, combined with the agitation of the brush it will also remove leading or the build up of plastic left by shotgun wads. Remember do not leave any solvents in barrels for long term, 20 minutes at most, as they are not rust preventatives at all. Solvents dissolve any oil protection that may still be in the barrel and even if they are not corrosive themselves leave the barrel steel completely un-protected. Remove them with dry patches on a Jag and Rod, then …

Cleaning Patches.

24. For many reasons do not use just any old rags to cut up into cleaning patches, other materials do not have the strength or compression especially after they have been washed several times. Sometimes other materials knot up and jam in the barrel, destroying a cleaning rod to save the price of a patch is criminal, destroying the barrel to get the cleaning rod out is an abomination. Extraction of anything stuck in a barrel is always stressful. Old pyjamas and underwear contain salt from sweat. Cleaning patches should be always made from Cantonese (China) Flannel, or what we used to call Four be Two in the Army, as its 4 inches wide with a red line every 2 inches. The flannel should be cut in squares or punched out with a round hole punch.

Brass or Bronze Brushes.

21. The cleaning fluids should be applied to the brush, the brush attached to the cleaning rod and where possible entered from the breech end and pushed all the way through the barrel, push out of the muzzle, then pull them straight back and out of the chamber. They last about 30 cleans and to clean them just wash them out in boiling water. Bronze Brushes are available from most gun dealers in all calibres. Nylon or bristle are poor second choices. If brushes are too small they are useless, if they are too big they either don’t fit or the bronze wires just lay back and do not work. Ideally they should agitate the cleaning solvent and loosen powder carbon, lead and copper fouling which is like a very thin plating which has to be brushed off or …

The Equipment

Cleaning Rods

11.The heart and sole of any firearm is the barrel, it is the most difficult part to replace or repair, so much depends upon its accuracy and performance, it dictates that it must deserve the most attention. That is why the most important item of cleaning equipment is a well fitting, one piece cleaning rod, with a thread on one end to interchange with a brush and jag and a revolving handle on the other end.

12. ‘Pull throughs’, are available and they can be used to spread some oil in a barrel and even dry it out before shooting it but they can never clean a barrel properly and predictably break when you need them most. ‘Pull throughs’, would have to be near the top of the list of obstructions that gunsmiths are continually asked to remove from …

When to Clean a Firearm

9. Preservation of firearms depends upon proper attention at the right time, more than frequency of attention. Well stored firearms, even in tropical conditions can survive for more than ten years without damage as long as that initial cleaning and preparation has been carried out with knowledge and attention.

10.If humanly possible, always clean a firearm, especially the barrel, before the evening of the day on which it was fired, because as the temperature cools humidity condenses into a fine layer of moisture which will remain on the dry surfaces inside and outside your barrel.
Cleaning involves a certain amount of time and energy. Mostly at the end of an exhausting days hunting or competition when everyone is tired. Take a little time to plan your preserving operation as it is important that it should be reduced …

Prelude

The following comments on cleaning and care may seem at first glance rather lengthy. I do hope that you appreciate its importance and read it, in its entirety, but for the person who is only looking for information concerning one aspect, of preserving firearms each aspect is on its own separate page. Having spent many thousands of hours explaining the subject to customers and having nothing in writing to refer them to, I felt the time has come not for a quick 1 to 5 summation, (if anyone wants that, they can read the directions on the label of the cleaning products), but to explain a very important subject which to date has had little serious attention and yet costs us all, so dearly if we ignore it.
In explaining why things have to be done correctly, I hope it inspires and …
