War in Venezuela
On the morning of April 30th, 2019 Venezuela’s opposition leader Juan Guaidó seemed to attempt a coup d’état against the communist government of Nicolás Maduro. I use the word seemed as what occurred can be best described as a publicity stunt more than an actual coup d’état. For the remainder of the day, even those that thought they knew what was going on in Venezuela had no idea what was going on. While the social media and the news channels were touting a revolution in Caracas life went on as normal on the military bases and for the rest of Venezuela. Guaidó’s attempted coup d’état was mostly just another demonstration that is all too common in Caracas…
One the day of Guaidó’s publicity stunt Nicolás Maduro was strangely absent until late in the day. Rumors were swirling that he had left or was leaving the country. Did his Cuban bodyguards take Guaidó’s actions seriously and isolate Maduro until the all-clear was given? Maybe… I am sure the Caucasian-looking Russian speakers on the streets of Caracas wearing Venezuelan National Guard uniforms were keeping Maduro’s security team and others informed on all the developments with Guaidó’s fiasco.

Pistol Grip Shotguns
As with everything there are positives and negatives to all weapons and everyone has their own opinions… These days a lot of people’s opinions seem to be 3rd hand or YouTube based which can be concerning… For me pistol grip shotguns are very effective and versatile weapons if used properly. Shotguns with stocks are easier to use and are more controllable with 3 Inch shells or hotter loads but lack the maneuverability of a pistol grip shotgun. I prefer the Remington 870 over Mossberg 500‘s as the Remington receiver is steel and the safety catch is better placed. For me the Remington 870 is the only shotgun you need, it’s a tried, tested and proven platform for both tactical and sporting guns. Read the article @ https://circuit-magazine.com/magazine/issue-47/
