I thought 'parabellum' was a type of ammunition.
I started a topic on gun laws recently, it is most interesting to see the different types of guns allowed under different countries laws.
Also the licensing of these guns, none of the above are allowed in Australia.

I have a total admiration for older weapons, probably sounds strange from a women.
The Manlicca ( probably not how you spell it) action is a wonder of craftsmanship.
We are not allowed to have hand guns in Australia, legally. Plenty do, but I love the little old Derringers.
Don't really know but I think they were 22's

Wonder what life would be like if the time and mental acuity spent inventing weapons to harm, was spent inventing methods to help.

The Heckler and Koch G3 is probably my favorite firearm of all time. It was a joint effort between CETME and HK, and it's still one hell of an assault rifle more than 50 years after its invention. Of the rifles that use 7.62mm bullets, I'm not sure if there is a rifle with a greater overall performance. The only thing an AK-47 has on the G3 is that it can operate under more conditions (that's not to say the G3 can't fire in adverse weather conditions, but the AK-47 was certainly more reliable on that front).

And JJ, that picture is amazing.

The 95mm S 58-61 is a heavy recoilless anti-tank weapon used by the Finnish Army. Nowadays old-fashioned but still in use.

Wow, how'd they make something with such a huge caliber without recoil? It looks like it would knock three grown men onto the ground if they were bracing it when it fired!

EDIT: And wow, a revolver shotgun?!

It is both. The bullet is called the 9x19mm Parabellum, which is also known as the .30 Luger in the US, and has been adopted by NATO.

The gun is the Parabellum MG14 machine gun.

Both are manufactured by the same company: Deutsche Waffen und Munitionsfabriken, which coined the term, based on the saying: "si vis pacem, para bellum," meaning "If you want peace, prepare for war."

This information was gathered from wikipedia's entries on both the ammunition and the gun.

Nooblet:

The 95 S 58-61 is a heavy recoilless anti-tank weapon used by the Finnish Army. It is also referred to as raskas sinko (heavy recoilless rifle), or colloquially as Musti ("Blackie"). The weapon was developed in 1958 and it was given a new wheel-equipped carriage in 1961. The name of the weapon means "95 mm, Sinko, model 1958/1961", where sinko is the Finnish word for recoilless rifle.

The weight of the weapon system is 140 kg and its caliber is 95 mm. Its effective range is 700 m against moving targets and 1,000 m against positioned targets. It can penetrate about 550 mm steel. Its HEAT ammunition is equipped with a strengthened nose section to better its effectiveness against explosive reactive armour (ERA).

The weapon team consists of 8 men: leader, shooter, loader/reserve shooter and two ammunitions handlers plus the reserve leader and two extra men armed with M72 LAWs and APILAS anti-tank weapons for close defense. The group moves in the terrain to their firing position by running and pulling the weapon behind them, and this is popularly called "walking the musti". (The joke in this saying is that Musti is a stereotypical name for a black dog in Finnish.)

Guns may be means of utter violence but the grounds of violence lie in human nature.

And By the way, Who said that Guns are only used for destruction ? Look at this pulse tickling picture. See how this nubile woman in a photo shoot delicately covers her bosoms with a hand gun and uses it as a brilliant piece of clothing. yep. Totally Trendy Applause
