a rifle


Evans air rifle

Manufactured in England c.early 19th century.
~.30 caliber ball, patina’d cast steel ball air tank good for half a dozen shots at effective range.

I love these old air rifles, they never were extremely popular, at least not in the military, because of the fragility of these early air reservoirs. The Austrian army did use the Girardoni air rifle in the late 18th century, but this raised yet another problem of filling the reservoirs back up after usage which was either really long and labor-intensive or required a specialized cart.

Another air rifle with an offset top-mounted brass air tank.


Thinking of doing a 458 SOCOM AR15 build? Get all the details from our buddy Sootch right here!

Pocket size Kallus, Part 2… Part 1 can be found here: (x)

Ohh the horror for tomorrow ;v;…at least i have pocket Kallus to keep me happy ;A;!!! 

He lives in zeb’s shirt pocket and has a baby lothcat called “Mister Muttonchops”…lol. He’s so tiny that Thrawn will never find him.


This episode for me really highlighted and then in its dramatic finale brought to an extreme the use of perspective that Rebecca Sugar has often talked about during panels. In her rare appearances, we are almost always looking up at Rose Quartz, or she is leaning down and over our POV - be it Pearl kneeling before her hologram in Rose’s Scabbard

or Greg on a number of occasions during the early days of their relationship (We Need To Talk is a really interesting watch with regards to camera angles and how they change - Greg literally climbs a stack of crates during his attempt at communication and, well, seeing eye to eye)

or Garnet after her fateful fall in The Answer

or, hey, Buddy Buddwick collapsed in the desert in Buddy’s Book

She even has magical floating powers. It all fits, of course, with the entire running theme of the (unattainable/unmaintainable) pedestal. And even when she is not directly present, and even when it’s not the focus of the shot, her portrait can be seen overlooking the familiar setting of the beach house.

Terror attacks are part of living in big city, says Sadiq Khan
Sadiq Khan has said he believes the threat of terror attacks are “part and parcel of living in a big city” and encouraged Londoners to be vigilant to combat dangers.
