Hussars!


Fun fact: these feisty little tykes are only 10 mm tall. To put it in perspective for the kind of folks who still refuse to use the metric system, that's about the width of a .410 slug.

(This week we've been honored by inclusion a prestigious invitation-only exclusive "Hussar" themed simulcast with the popular blog bogol. Curious about the theme? See bogol for what slender explanation there is. Pic from the enduring and incredible GHQ models. Horses, ships, tanks, aircraft, they've got hundreds, maybe thousands, of different incredibly detailed tiny little pewter models.)

Everybody uses the metric system: 9mm, 10mm, 5.56x45mm, 7.62x39mm...

P.S. No, seriously, nobody calls 7.62x39mm Russian ".30 caliber". I mean, it is, but nobody calls it that. 9x19mm is pretty close to .380 ACP, but not interchangeable. Not all cartridges with bullets of similar diameter are the same. .223 Rem and 5.56x45 NATO aren't quite identical:

"Army 5.56mm ammunition has more tolerance in the case neck diameter than the civilian SAAMI .223 Rem­ing­ton chamber drawing."

Ditto with 7.62 NATO (not to be confused with 7.62 Russian) and .308 Win.

Heh. I believe you! I was just feeling a little ornery. And I thought well here's this nominous guy so why not hassle him?

Oh, yes, quite. And well-played. But then I mistyped "skim" as "skin", and I began to... question things...

I wondered about that. But, good gabbling christ, soy milk, I could as easily imagine that maybe people do want it with a skin on.
