Do you carry a backup gun?

Mouse guna are ideal backup weapons

I know a lot of people in my social circle who carry guns for self defense. It is always concealed carry. In big cities where the rime rate is going through the roof carrying a concealed weapon makes a lot of sense. But I have always been very apprehensive if people actually carry a backup gun as well?

A.38 Webley Mk4 revolver…

Six shooter, a mean beast from bygone era

The .38 Webley is a well known revolver in Pakistan. These were inherited by our military from the British. The top break six shooters were known for their reliability and have been in service for a long long time. These wheelers have simple design, no safety, top break, with six shot capacity

. These are now mostly kept as trophy.

CF98 latest model lands in Pakistan

CF98 2021 import

I remember my first CF98 cost me a mere Rs 26000 in 2010. It was in those days one of the most popular pistols in Pakistan. Adequately priced, dependable and aesthetically appealing. It quickly found fame amongst gun enthusiasts as a pistol that “does the job”. It came with a manual decocker safety, a rotating barrel, just all right trigger, metal slide, polymer frame, a decent double stack 15 round mag, miserable fixed sights, just so so finish, but was very popular because of its price and reliability. Not only that it was sleek enough to be carried. Then later after the import ban prices shot up and it would sell for 130k or more. A CF98 mini with a single stack 7 round magazine was later launched that became a hit. Come 2021 the new model has-been launched which reached Pakistan few weeks ago. There isn’t much difference between the two except for the rather thick Magazine baseplate and a slight curve in the grip. This will give a better grip and spruces up the looks. The gun is retailing at Rs 120k to 130k. Enjoy the photos ๐Ÿ™‚

Observe the checkered trigger guard.
CF98 rotating barrel.
Magazine with an extended baseplate.
The checkered grip for a better hold.
Not many changes except the magazine baseplate.
Overall the finish is decent.

I think it will be a decent purchase if the price drops to 90k. Other than that this is an economical, reliable and pretty accurate weapon. Cheers.

The first time I saw someone get shot

The year was 1988. I was at that time a student of second year FSc in FG Sir Syed College Rawalpindi. Democracy had been restored just two years ago after the death of President Zia. People’s party was in power and the then Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto had given permission to student political parties to resume their activities. There was PSF (People’s Student Federation), there was MSF (Muslim Students Federation) and there was Jamiyat. Different parties had hold in different colleges. At one place it was PSF and at another MSF and yet another it was the Jamiyat. There wasn’t a day in college that anyone of them didn’t quarrel over something. In plain words it was pure bullshit. But the students mostly loved it, it gave them a chance to stay away from studies by providing cheap pathetic entertainment.

CZ 550 Varmint, Rifle Review

The CZ 550 Varmint is a big bore world class hunting rifle with superb accuracy. CZ is known to make quality weapons and this one is a class apart. The rifle being reviewed is chambered in .308 Winchester. It has a walnut wooden stock, no iron sights, a bull barrel, single stage trigger and checkering in the front end as well as the pistol grip. I have seen a light hunting rifle called the Lux, also chambered in .308 Win, but this one is really a showstopper.

Remembering Amie Ji (An eulogy)

My mother died last month leaving us all saddened and crying. It happened so fast and suddenly that I still can’t believe she’s left us. My father died when I was just 18, since then my mother, or “Amie Ji” as we used to call her has been my mother and father. She took it upon herself to provide for us and make us siblings what we are today. As I look back at all those years I admire her and praise her on her will, strength, and the love she showered on us all.
