1. Vintage Russell Moccasin Catalogs

    Before custom shoemaking in the US was mostly bespoke and made-to-orders, there was a small niche of manufacturers who would make shoes based off of the individualized foot tracings that customers would mail in. Russell Moccasin was one such firm. They sold shoes through outfitters such as Orvis, Eddie Bauer, and Abercrombie & Fitch (when the company still served outdoorsmen and adventurers), as well directly to customers through their large catalog business. 

    Here are some photos of such catalogs. These date back to the early ’80s and late ’90s. Notice that every one includes a foldout form, which has a Brannock-looking diagram on which you’re supposed to trace your foot. This tracing — along with fourteen other measurements you’re supposed to provide of your feet and legs — is what gave Russell enough information to make you a perfectly fitting pair of sport shoes.

    Leader 50 A1

    This rather odd looking rifle is a semi-automatic 50 caliber bullpup. Uses a pistol grip safety and Serbu 10 shot magazines. The images show the current generation model minus the optics rail which will be added when they finally ship out. Note the size comparison to an AR-15 with a 20” barrel. Oleg Volk did a review on the original model and claimed that the Leader 50 has about as much recoil as a AR-15 in .223. You can read more on the Leader 50 and Volk’s review in the link below. MSRP seems to be around $6,900. (GRH)

    Rac-Em-Bac Bow Mag

    This odd piece of plastic is actually an explosive arrowhead that uses either the .38 Special or .357 Magnum cartridge. Upon impact with a target, the cartridge is pressed up against a firing pin that causes the detonation. Since there is no chamber to support the ammo, the case ruptures inside of the target causing massive internal trauma.

    However it seems that there are reliability issues with these things. Some users report not being able to get the round to go off. It needs a sufficiently hard target to compress the cartridge against the firing pin. There is also the legal issues and hunting laws that have to be taken into consideration. They cannot be reused since the explosion rips the plastic shell apart. MSRP is about $40 for a package of 6. (GRH)
