So I was a little confused when I read this press release. I had always thought that you could use lithium batteries in the same place as alkaline assuming the same output and size…? I’ve been using Energizer Lithiums in most of my gear for years [Read More…]
As we all know, dry firing is probably one of the best bangs for the buck (see what I did there?) that you can get for training. That said, there are some important things you need to consider, and certain optimizations you can do to make the best use of your time. ITS [Read More…]
