Not All Coloring Books are for Sissies!

Kimberly Eakin, a retired US Army sergeant and the sales & marketing for, published a book this summer that is taking the firearms industry by storm.   Full Metal Coloring: A Book of Down Range Reflection takes a different spin on adult coloring.

Adult coloring has become increasingly popular over the last few years.  Kimberly looked at the industry and soon realized that there were few that offered strong, patriotic themes.  Through her connections in the professional firearms community, Kimberly enlisted the help of her world class friends, Julie Golob, Brian Zins, Sandra Uptagrafft, and Jim Henderson.  Soon thereafter, the project grew to include other shooting greats like Jerry Miculek, Dustin Ellerman, and superstar hunter, Michael Waddell of Bone Collector.
“I was caught off guard by the reception of my book,” said Kimberly, “I wasn’t sure if anyone would even notice.  But notice they did!”
Full Metal Coloring was featured in many of the major firearms publications to include Guns & Ammo AR-15 #3, the December issue of American Rifleman, also in the popular blogs of Womens Outdoor News,, Wide Open Spaces, The Truth About Guns and AmmoLand.  Kimberly has also been interviewed on podcasts, GunTalk with Tom Gresham (Tom appears in the book), the Women’s Gun Show, and Roanoke Advice Givers.

Kimberly said, “I’m a vet.  I understand coloring is a healthy activity in times of uncertainty and stress.  I dedicated my book to my brothers & sisters in uniform because it’s them, most of all, I’d like to help.”

Full Metal Coloring is available directly through the author at, Amazon and The NRA Store.

Full Auto Swedish BAR – Rare indeed!

No BAR collection is complete without a full auto Carl Gustafs Stads 1930 BAR.  It is one of the last versions of BARs manufactured in Sweden, under license from Browning for use by the Swedish military.


Schematic of a Swedish BAR


Used between the wars, the Swedish BAR was the main support weapon for the Swedish army. It was considered today’s modern version of the SAW.

And it’s different! It has a detachable pistol grip, fires 6.5 x 55 Swedish Mauser ammo and uses a 30 round magazine. The lighter ammunition and larger capacity magazine were improvements specifically for full auto firing.

Rare Swedish BAR, refurbished and tested by Ohio Ordnance.

Class 3 Only has an extremely unusual version of the BAR in its original configuration.  Most BAR rifles were converted to .30-06 for ease of finding ammunition but this rare find has stayed in its original condition.

Had a Blast at Knob Creek


One of the many shooters on the line at the Creek

Affectionately known as the “Creek,” Class 3 Only traveled to West Point, KY last weekend to be a part of the largest machine gun shoot and show in America.  After a 6-year wait(we got lucky bc it’s usually 10 years), we got tables and were well-positioned at C-6.  Not far from the important dealers and gunsmiths in the machinegun world.


Neil Smith and his big guns

Yes, important Class 3 people like Neil Smith who specializes in Gatling Guns and Hothckiss Revolving Cannons or Bob Landis of Ohio Ordnance who runs one of the biggest gun manufacturing companies but is quick with a handshake and a quip or Jeff Folloder of National Firearms Act Trade & Collectors Association (NFATCA) who is the new Director and was on hand every hour of the show to speak with its members.

We also talked with other machinegun business fixtures like Larry Cheatham and his sister, Lana, of L&L Machineguns,  Frank Galati of Galati International, Phil Flack of PF Custom Guns and even the founder of Knob Creek Shooting Range, Old Man Somner himself.  Yes, indeed!  We felt right at home with our Class 3 friends.

And speaking of the firing line, those guys couldn’t get enough ammo.  The table across from ours sold out of ammo by midday both Friday and Saturday.  Another ammo dealer  sold a tractor trailer load of 9mm and .233 by 9:02 am.  The show didn’t open until 9:00 am!  So ammo was going fast and at a steep price but that didn’t stop the shooters from tearing it up for three solid days.

If you haven’t already, put Knob Creek Machine Gun Shoot & Show on your bucket list.  It’s a real blast!

VP Biden Still Wrong about the 2nd Amendment


Joe Biden on Parents Magazine’s Town Hall- Feb 19, 2013

Vice President Biden continues to misstate the law on the right to keep and bear arms when he says that double-barreled shotguns are all we should own under the 2nd Amendment.  His obvious effort to rewrite the Constitution to leave out the right to have weapons suitable for “common defense” is misleading and false.  The Supreme Court has clearly explained that the 2nd Amendment covers more than self-defense and hunting.  DC v. Heller, 554 US 570 (2008) pp. 588-599.  There can be no doubt that the 2nd Amendment covers the AR-15, due to its widespread lawful ownership and use by citizens and value as a weapon for the common defense.  Id@pp624-628.  The VP would do the American people a great service if he would focus on keeping all weapons out of the wrong hands and stop trying to disarm law-abiding citizens.

VP Biden Ignores Fundamental Purpose of 2nd Amendment

According to Joe Biden, thumb “You have an individual right to own a weapon both for hunting and for self-protection.”  This statement ignores the words of the Constitution, history and the Supreme Court cases on the 2nd Amendment.  The relevant words of the Constitution say: “We the People of the United States… order to provide for… the Common Defense…. ordain [that].. the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”  (Preamble and 2nd Amendment)

joe-biden-gun-poseHistorically, Americans have always kept arms suitable to defense of country and community, from the 1600s to today.  The Supreme Court says American citizens have the right to own firearms that “could contribute to the common defense,” “of kind in common use” at the time in question and are “typically possessed by law-abiding citizens for lawful purposes.” US v. Miller, 307 U.S. 174 (1939) @178-9; D.C. v Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (2008) @ 625.

It would be far more productive if the White House would focus on keeping all weapons away from criminals and the mentally ill instead of trying to disarm everyone.
