Jerry Miculek is still fast. Like that is a surprise to anyone. But watch the super slo-mo on the reload. Watching Jerry’s steps broken down in slow motion is just awe inspiring. Seeing him let go of the rounds before they even enter the cylinder so he can get his [Read More…]
A few weeks back a mysterious package showed up at my door. I hadn’t been expecting anything, so it was a welcomed surprise. Upon opening it I found a pair of Original Mechanix Wear insulated covert style gloves with the retail packaging and a zip-loc bag. [Read More…]
Art imitates life. All from an innocuous picture shown below, a few people have been debating what was on the end of the suppressor. Some surmised it was a re-purposed scope cover or a glass breaker. So my friend, Kris Kim in Korea, decided to run with the idea and made [Read More…]
Magpul, as most of us know, is well known in for their polymer accessories and magaines. Now they have announced they are shipping the anticipated Ghost Gray accessories. Also getting ready to ship in the next week is windowed 25rd LR/SR (7.62×51) magazines, [Read More…]
I can’t remember who the famous shooter who stated. “The charging handle is the weak point of the AR-15 design,”. Despite my faulty memory, I agree with the assertion. The original charging handle design of the AR-15 is, in a word, [Read More…]
Necessity is the mother of invention. Last year, when I was living in NY state, I figured out that I could use my KRISS Vector faster if I could release the magazine with my right hand. We were only allowed 10 rd magazines so reloading was crucial to action pistol [Read More…]
This is nothing new, but for those who don’t know, Cowboy Action is a competition similar to 3gun except they use old styled firearms. They use a revolver, shotgun and rifle. However they are all manually operated. Single action revolvers are used for the pistols. [Read More…]
22Plinkster has done some interesting trick shots with .22LR. In this recent video, he shoots an egg from 100yds off hand, open sights with a 22LR tracer. One shot. I find this video amusing because just last week, two of my online friends set a challenge for all three [Read More…]
RatedRR tested out Google Glass 2.0. Using high speed video he captures all the information and shows us the details. The Google Glass did very well in its first two tests. But does not fair well against the KRISS SMG test. Just to kick it up a notch, he uses two KRISS [Read More…]
While I was down in Phoenix for the 3MR event, I learned that the trigger system had a coating on it called NP3. Also on hand for the media event was someone from ROBAR that was able to talk about the NP3 coating, and what it does. NP3 is a coating that is Electroless [Read More…]
X Products is partnering up with another company to produce a Soda Can launcher. It will be a dedicated upper and fires from blanks. It will shoot a soda can about 100-150 yards. They have a video on their Facebook page. It looks just like this one.
Mission First Tactical has an interesting stock. The Battlelink Minimalist Stock, or BMS. The BMS is a rather minimalistic approach to an adjustable stock. However they designed it so that the end-user can make some simple modifications if they so desire. Here is an [Read More…]
Rifleshooter built a super short precision rifle and test it to see if it is worthwhile. Here they test it at 100 yards. Then they take the short rifle to stretch its legs out at 635 yards. Their results are rather impressive and makes for a very effective rifle.
A big thanks to Alfred for this tip. Shannon Smith shoots at steel to make music. Pretty impressive.
Mesmerizing in their simplicity, the two videos below are archival instructional films from the War Department in WW2. These training videos are vastly preferable to the modern military’s forced “death by PowerPoint.” I started to watch the first video [Read More…]
This is a bullet shaped mini black powder cannon. I am not quite sure why they call it a mug. I suppose it is somewhat mug sized. Here is a time lapse of the Thunder Cannon being fabricated. Go to The Mans Cave to get one.
So last week I was at the Ben Avery Shooting Facility in Phoenix, AZ shooting the 3MR trigger system at their media event. I had a little mishap while I was there, which could have been worse had I not been wearing gloves. The back story is that I had my own personal [Read More…]
This evening we were at the Ben Avery Shooting Facility here in Phoenix shooting, and getting used to the 3MR trigger. I happened to bring my personal AR15 so that I was familiar with the system I was going to be shooting. Being able to put 500-600 round down range, [Read More…]
This morning we were all treated to a tour of one of the production facilities that TAC-CON uses to manufacture the components to make their trigger system. Being an aerospace facility, the product that is being made is of the highest quality, and tightest tolerances. [Read More…]
