    And here's his blog:
    http://cjchivers.com/

    I've been keeping up with his blog for a couple weeks after I found his articles in the editorial section of the online NYT (gasp).

    It's been a rather eye opener seeing that someone over there actually seems to know what he's talking about.

    I was waiting to listen to this and missed it. Thanks for the link! He's by far one of their better guests -- has a great radio presence.

    Host: "When you say you find them ... how do you notice them?"
    Chivers: "Well, you're going to laugh at me, so go ahead. If you know what you're looking for in the various Kalashnikovs, you become almost like a birdwatcher who can at a glance into the bushes tell you that there's three or four different kinds of warblers there..."

    His segue into explaining to the host how to ID old Soviet milled guns.

    :)

    How cool is that?

    Yes indeed, thanks for posting the link.
    I was sad that I missed it when it broadcasted but the wonders of the internetz and a good THR member saved me from that!

    Glad I'm not the only one to listen to NPR to boot too.
