Today, someone told me the Tula packs quite a kick and would knock a woman on her butt. I have been debating whether or not my Bond woman would be armed. I did visualize a scenario where she may kill someone with a Tula. But, the jury is out. This Tula belonged to Starfish’s father. It was his survival rifle. Starfish conducts these bombastic exaggerated rituals with her gun. It is – the Russian Way!
After Starfish’s mother saw Ballad of a Soldier, she had to have a Russian, and, any Russian would do. She looked just like the Russian Star. There was a lot of play-acting. Ivan would nail her two or three times a night. After his track coach saw him walking bowl-legged, he considered calling the FBI on Zanyia, a U.S. citizen. They had a talk.
“It’s her mouth, coach. I think about IT all day!”
So, her mouth makes you want to have sex all day!”
“No! Her mouth makes me want to die – for her! I want to die for the want of just one kiss!”
“This is not good. Being a romantic and track star, do not mix! I forbid you to see her!”
“No! Don’t do that. It will only make matters worse! Please! You don’t understand! You are playing into her hands. This is exactly what she wants. She’s – playing you!”

Tula Arms Plant (Russian: Тульский оружейный завод, translit. Tulsky Oruzheiny Zavod) is a Russian weapons manufacturer founded by Tsar Peter I of Russia in 1712 in Tula, Tula Oblast as Tula Arsenal. Throughout its history, it has produced weapons for the Russian state. Its name was changed from Tula Arsenal to Tula Arms Plant during the Soviet era.
History of the plant
Historically, the plant produced a wide variety of arms and sports weapons for the Imperial Russian Army.
Originally, the plant was created to provide arms to the citizens of Tula in order to defend against nomads’ invasions, because they did not have enough weapons, which were produced in Moscow. The plant was created by decree by Peter the Great in 1712. The factory was equipped with then-progressive equipment such as: water machines, “trochanteric” machines for drilling shafts, grapes, hammers, machines for “scrubbing” – exterior and interior finishes trunks.
In the 18th century this plant was recognized as etalon of Russian Arms Production. In 1720, for the weaponry of Russian army, the plant produced 22 thousand light infantry and dragoon rifles, pistols flintlock. In 1749, the plant started mass production of cold weapons- knives, sabers, broadswords and swords. The flourishing of Tula Arms Plant had in the second half of 18th century, when in that time, rapidly increased a demand on the artistically decorated weapons. A unique, remarkable for its elegance invention Tula’s plant – “Diamond Line” on the metal, and many other secrets of decoration on metal and wood are rooted precisely in this era. By the end of 18th century, becoming known names such fine gunsmiths as Ivan Pushkin, Ivan Lialin – creator of the double-barreled breech-loading flintlock, Ivan Pauline – the designer who created one of the first examples of a multiply-charged weapons shop.
