In Taiwan, civilian gun ownership is almost entirely banned, with the only exception being homemade guns for members of the island’s native tribes. However, there’s a catch: these weapons cannot be mass-produced or bought from stores. They must be hand-built by each individual hunter, and can only be used by their creator.

After surrendering their guns in the 1980s, these native tribes have been force to build their own weapons from scrap. Full article and video can be found on OFFGRID web, link in our bio @recoiloffgridmagazine.

The Kolibri, which means “hummingbird” in German, was developed by an Austrian watchmaker named Franz Pfannl and released in 1914. It fires a 3-grain bullet. No, that's not a typo — three grains. For a quick comparison, that's 7.5% of the weight of a 40-grain .22LR projectile, or less than 3% of the weight of a common 115-grain 9mm.

On day one of the @apex_trainingsolutions Long Range 102 class, Mother Nature gave us some wind and rain, but the students powered through.

In this drill, a full deck of playing cards were glued to the cardboard at 100 yards. Instructors announced a card to shoot, and whoever found and hit it first got a point. This was repeated several times with different cards, and each time the students had to take a different position behind the barricade — standing, high kneeling, low kneeling, or seated. This tested our shooting fundamentals, positional stability, and target acquisition speed.

At the end of a two-day Long Range 101 class with At the end of a two-day Long Range 101 class with @apex_trainingsolutions, students were given a timed final exam involving steel targets of various sizes at ranges between 200 and 800 yards. Each student had to trust the rifle zero, DOPE card, and fundamental skills they developed to get consistent hits. Any missed target could be re-engaged once, but only within a 10-second time frame after the first miss.  We’re looking forward to working on some more advanced skills and positions during the follow-up Long Range 102 class this weekend.
