OVERWORKED COCK


Slippery Tilde

Back in 2008 I posted a picture of my Hungarian M52
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mosin%96Nagant#mediaviewer/File:Mosin_pu_hungarian_M52.jpg

from my own hosting


to add content to the mosin page on wikipedia 2/3 the way down the page in the Hungarian section
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mosin%96Nagant

Then later someone used it to make a wikipedia stubby called PU Scope
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PU_scope

There are also a couple of German wikipedia entries that look like a catalog of arms for Hungary in which it is used.

Out of curiosity, I decided to do a quick google reverse image search to see where else it might have spread. It wasn't too incredible, but it shows how weird people can be about this stuff.

I find this:
http://usedfirearms.ca/ads/mosin-nagant-pu-sniper-2/

Some weirdo in Canada is pretending to be something called "richardsguns"
http://usedfirearms.ca/author/richardsguns/

using my picture in fake gun ads to try to rip people off
http://usedfirearms.ca/ads/mosin-nagant-pu-sniper/
http://usedfirearms.ca/ads/mosin-nagant-pu-sniper-2/

I also found this from 2009
http://thefiringline.com/forums/showthread.php?t=382850

where a guy at the bottom is using my picture pretending it is a picture of his own gun
http://thefiringline.com/forums/showthread.php?t=382850

His name is RC1986 and its on a gun forum so I automatically thinking "Russian Capture" right?

Nope

So I look to see what photo host account is being used
http://s6.photobucket.com/user/raffycanlas/media/Mosin_pu_hungarian_M52.jpg.html

Some guy named
raffycanlas
http://s6.photobucket.com/user/raffycanlas/profile/

It says his name is

quote:

Raffy Canlas (raffycanlas)

So I google him
https://www.google.com/search?rls=en&q=Raffy+Canlas

and quickly find a canadian Autocad guy from Vancouver.

But there are lots of other Raffy Canlas on there, even some on Facebook, so who knows.

People are weird either way.

In other news, I have found and bought (waiting for delivery) a real correct Hungarian M91/30 "02" marked (and other markings) Hungarian cleaning rod and bayonet for that M/52 sniper. Who knows, I might put it up for sale.

It is basically the only collectable of any gun I own, so I haven't decided yet.

regular Mosin nagant pu rifle, but its less expensive because i want to t ride of it so i have more space. it comes with a sling and bayonet. these rifles were never issued bayonets but i got a spare. it looks like the picture

From the ad using your picture. Probably still an internet gun weirdo and/or scammer though.

Clearly their proficiency at shooting is supernatural, not practical, in origin.


Happens all the time on Armslist, people just c/p gunbroker auctions along with the pictures (sometimes they spend the time to crop out the watermark) and if you email them you get the standard "wire me some money" scam or whatever.
