Ladies and Gentlemen, Meet Ivan Chesnokov

Ladies and gentlemen (and blogwriters) allow me to introduce you to one of the most bat-shit crazy fixtures of /k/; Ivan Chesnokov. Ivan is the resident ruski (at least we think he's Russian (at least we think, he thinks he's Russian)) and a vocal supporter of all Russian firearms and their accoutrement. Presented below are the gleanings of my encounters with Ivan; those passages and parables that were just too good to let go. Enjoy.

Ivan really is kind of a purist.




Not a good winner, Ivan gloats about a recent conquest.




Ivan humbles those who think they are all that and a bag of brass.




Ivan offers his opinion on the FNH Five-seveN.




Ivan Explains all...



All passages copied directly from /k/ threads. Use at your leisure.

Somehow I don't think he'd be amused by Head's old ,"AK vs. AR vs. Mosin" post.

I don't care if he's Russian or not, I'm reading all his posts with a thick Russian accent in my head!

I am a big fan of this guy. I agree with a lot of it too... people do stupid things to perfectly nice guns.

Hmmmm .... he isn't aware of the fact that Russians refer to the Gatling Gun as a Gorlov Gun ... the tsraist General Gorlov bought the rights to make them in Russia from Gatling, and the Tsar used them to put down rebellious wogs in Russia's Near Abroad ( at least, until they got a manufacturer's license from Dr. Hiram Maxim for his invention ).

Ivan is obviously both a rational and a passionate man. I salute him.

Oh no Kevin, it is very clear that the "Glorious Three Line Rifle" is superior in every way to "Rifle of Mikhail Kalashnikov" or your silly poodleshooter.

You do realise that he is not Russian, right? His grammar is American and his choice of comparisons reveals his American roots. It's natural for a Russian who has no idea of the English language to lose the verb "is" in a phrase like "SURE, IS ONLY YUGOSLAV COPY", because we don't use verbs in this function. A Russian would say "OF COURSE, IT ONLY YUGOSLAVIAN COPY". Ai kan analaiz it ol nait long.
