Double Barrel P-08 Luger

Well, I was gonna post about the guy who built an AK 47 from a shovel that seems to be all the rage right now, but everyone has posted it on every blog so chances are you've already seen it.  Instead here is a double barreled P-08 Luger.  Actually it's just a long barreled P-08 with another pistol clamped underneath it, made by a German gunsmith.  It looks stupid to be honest, but I still want one!

More bizzare P-08 Luger modifications can be found here.

American Pioneer and Corrosion

 Here is the result of shooting about fifty rounds of American Pioneer blackpowder substitute through a Mauser Broomhandle for the giggles and forgetting about it for a year just to see what would happen.  American Pioneer is a black powder substitute that is said to be cleaner burning and less corrosive than black powder.
Addendum: This experiment wasn't really trying to prove anything except that I'm lazy.  I still prefer American Pioneer over black powder just because it's easier to clean.  I just never realized that it would get this bad.  I pretty much never clean any of my guns unless I have to.
