Momma's new toy

The hubby brought home a surprise for me last week: the Saiga 12-gauge shotgun. Here's a little demo of this handy little firearm in action.

Ok, so the version they're using in the video is modified, but it's hard to deny how awesome that baby is!

I'll never forget when I first saw the Saiga in action. The Hubby was trying to convince me that we needed one, and I was rolling my eyes, thinking, yeah, we already have tactical shotguns, and semi-auto shotguns...why would we need a mag fed shotgun? And then I saw the video. It was love at first sight, and when I found out it came with a 20-round drum mag...ooh la la! I had to have one. That was more than a year ago, but when the Feds recently decided to restrict the Saiga's importation claiming they had no function as a "sporting" shotgun, purchasing a Saiga went up a notch on our priority list.

I'm champing at the bit to try my new baby out at the range. Although I'm certain it will be a long time and a few modifications before I can run mine like the guys at R and R run theirs, I do look forward to employing it often enough to become competent, if not lethal with it. 


  1. A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks.
