I stumped upon this photo on a Google image search earlier this week. Ian at Forgotten Weapons blogged it a few ago. This young Russian is carrying two M1895 revolvers, a PPsh, six hand grenades and a belt of ammunition… and that is just what is on the outside of his coat!

In case you missed it,our latest TFBTV is about the M1895 revolver …

I founded TFB in 2007 and over 10 years worked tirelessly, with the help of my team, to build it up into the largest gun blog online. I retired as Editor in Chief in 2017. During my decade at TFB I was fortunate to work with the most amazing talented writers and genuinely good people!

    Have a gun for each caliber. Buy a box or two each week. After one year you will have enough ammo, then buy the ammo that is on clearance. Called pick and choose. If one ammo is not available, you have other guns that are. Guns and bullets are like gold. They keep going up, especially with you have the dumb a$$ess threatening gun/ammo bans. You sell for double and buy twice as many. Only in America.

    I would imagine the Russian was heading into remote country and wanted to be sure he wasn't going to be unarmed with no reissue available.
