Bruegger + Thomet KH9 and P.26, both in 9×19 and using proprietary B+T magazines (natively for P.26, with an adaptator for KH9 which was designed for using Swiss MP43/44 magazines).

@laurentbelkacem Nice. I note that guy is wearing a Triple Aught Design hoodie. Mixing submachine guns and my fav ourdoor gear wins the internets for the day.

Ah ah. B. tends to take his tacticool seriously. As for myself, I’m just waiting to sell my AK 74 and B+T launching of second generation P.26 with the sliding stock (like a HK MP5A3) and it will become my main long gun.

I’m going for a day to London, next week. I’m toying with the idea to create a special t-shirt for the occasion. Something very simple, on the pattern of the old Marine nationale service t-shirt, but with “Mers el Kebir” written over the anchor.

On London subject, since it’s already sixteen years I’ve been there, and I’m mostly remembering squirrels (but I’ve got a positive bias toward squirrels), is there anything interesting to see ?

I will seriously trade you a U.S. Navy shirt for a Marine Nationale shirt.

Ah ah. Halas, these vintage t-shirts are quite difficult to find. Mine were just plain navy blue shirts…

If you really want to poke them in the eye, maybe a Marquis de Lafayette t shirt (Britons rate George Washington as their all time # 1 nemesis, and the Marquis and Washington were close). Or even better, a Robert Surcouf t shirt.

I like the way you think ! There are so many reasons to hate Englishmen it’s not even funny.

Mid seventies muscle car : Pontiac Firebird Trans Am T/A 6.6* in Ovronnaz. I really like the car and all that it represent, culturally speaking, but I’m afraid I wouldn’t be allowed to use it ever, not being able to grow a mullet.

A distinctive, slant-nose facelift occurred in 1977. Pontiac offered the T/A 6.6 Litre 400 (RPO W72) rated at 200 hp (150 kW), as opposed to the regular 6.6 Litre 400 (RPO L78) rated at 180 hp (130 kW). The T/A 6.6 equipped engines had chrome valve covers, while the base 400 engines had painted valve covers. In addition, California and high-altitude cars received the Olds 403 engine, which offered a slightly higher compression ratio and a more usable torque band than the Pontiac engines of 1977.

From 1977 to 1981, the Firebird used four square headlamps, while the Camaro continued to retain the two round headlights that had been shared by both Second Generation designs. The 1977 Trans-Am Special Edition became famous after being featured in Smokey and the Bandit.

*I don’t know if it’s a 1974/75 model with a T/A 6.6 engine retrofitted or a 1977 model with earlier-style wheels and front-fascia rebuild (or even a factory chimera**).

**That would make it a Pontiac Chimera, not to be confused with its cousin, the Chevrolet Camaro.

If you wear jeans shorts you can drive it sans mullet.

@laurentbelkacem

Nevernudes ruined the style.

FB MAG 98, a variant of the MAG 95 with an aluminium frame. Designed by Marian Gryszkiewicz, it seems it lost the Polish Army procurement competition for being a little bit too heavy, and they chose instead what seems to be the horrific love child of a Colt All-American 2000 and a Hi-Point JHP, the WIST-94.

Funny.  A few MAG 98s were imported into the States a few years ago. Collectors of Polish small arms consider them a rare an interesting find, but given the final product, I wondered why Poland didn’t just buy a bunch of Ruger P-89s……

They probably should have gone, like everybody else, to SIG-Sauer, HK or Glock, or even for a cheap American alternative (not sure if they could whistand the military life, though) ; or even Chicom/Eastbloc, for that matter.

But all these solutions weren’t acceptable since they were not made in Poland. I think there always be the dilemna between keeping a national military industry (even a substandard one) to protect one’s independance or chosing what years of international competition bring to the market at the better cost. 

Even in the last case, it’s possible for an Army procurement bureau to make mistakes, like US Army going for Beretta M9 or French Army swapping its old, out-of-shape FAMAS for HK 416 (probably).

Wrocław

Looks totally unsafe. Do want.

It’s funny you’re saying that, because one of the three kids from the first pic hurt himself pretty bad, to the point of getting out the playground supported by his two buddies. Don’t saw the accident, though.

I made new friends on the way to visit @laurentbelkacem

You know you are in the Glâne district of Fribourg when you meet cows while driving.

If you’re a policeman in Fribourg, this is exactly what constitute probable cows.

@laurentbelkacem
It is certainly more probable than than not these bovines are up to no good. It looks like a Chick-Fil-A commercial.

It seems that poor @descampsdavid was indeed sandwiched by the cows. This is a clear case of cattle doctrine with no duty to retreat.

I know I should let this post die, but on my ten mile run today I thought of a response –

Clearly the Friborg Constowbulary is an elite lawn enforcement agency.

Holy cow ! you’re really milking it, it’s almost creaminal. Did you know that in French, one of the numerous derogatory term for the cops (the constables indeed) is les vaches – meaning the cows ?True story.

Racławice Panorama

laurentbelkacem Nice.  What battle does this painting of all paintings depict?

This is the Battle of Racławice, one of the first battle and probably the first victory against German-Russian occupation. Anyway, it was more a symbolic victory than anything, as it took almost 120 years to Poland to regain signifiant independance (and to be raped, pillaged and occupied by its powerful neighbours soon after, and for most of the remaining of XXth Century). It’s not that strange they hate so much Russians.

In any case, the Panorama is a very cool and beautiful showcase of the battle, with every little scenes brought forward with context and explainations.
