Tenicor Holster

Editor’s note: Officer Mike is trying out a Tenicor holster system. Seems like a decent design. The clips used are VERY tough to remove. A good thing. Shown is his duty 2011 and my EDC X9L. The X9L doesn’t completely seat in this example since it’s a 5” gun. But it’s obvious a 5” Tenicor holster system would receive the …

Browning Euro-Bolt 270

Browning Euro-Bolt 270 Editors note:  “Some readers commented in a previous post that Officer Mike’s hunting rifle looked like a shotgun and wondered the gauge and make.

Blackhawk T-Series & EDC X9L

So…Officer Mike stopped by and checked if the new Blackhawk 2011 Holster (T-Series) would accept my Wilson EDC X9L? It appears it might.  The hangup, literally, is the Trijicon SRO.

GA Precision FBI HRT Rifle

So Officer Mike and Doc were back at the 600 yard shooting position testing it out. Not the rifles, but the grade.  Should I put a permanent bench there? Or maybe grade it flat?

AP Rounds & Steel Targets

Editor’s note: Sometimes Officer Mike rolls onto the range like a stray cat who has been out all night. I don’t know where he’s been or what he’s been up to. And am usually left with more questions than answers. This is one of those times.  Officer Mike: “Hey. Do you want an old steel target?” Marky: “Sure!” OM: “It’ll …
