Carry Your Precision Rifles

Without casting any stones, I just want to make a pretty basic but often overlooked point: It doesn’t matter if your rifle is green, or “tactical”, or has a DOD model name assigned to it. If you don’t ever carry your precision rig, it’s a bench-rest rifle. And you are a bench rest shooter.  And there is absolutely nothing wrong …

Mossberg 185D

So while visiting Shooters Supply I saw a goofy shotgun that I would have bought. Should have bought. Which I could’ve bought! If it hadn’t already been spoken for. A bolt-action shotgun.  You read that right. And it gets better. With…a detachable, box magazine.  Specifically the Mossberg Model 185D. It’s a nifty 20 gauge, bolt-action shotgun.  Probably not something that …

Deer Stand From Heaven

While checking trails on the property last week, the sun just happened to glint off a red object to my right. It looked like a pipe.  Upon further inspection it turns out to be an old deer stand that had fallen during the last storm. Which is why I was checking trails…looking for downed trees.  It seems this stand has …

Federal 243 Soft-Point

So with the new chassis and suppressor, it is time to fine tune the zero. Especially considering I have switched ammo. Typically I was shooting PPU 243. But I had heard some good things about the Federal 100g soft-points, I we decided to give them a try.  The good news is it’s literally ammo I can find almost anywhere. At …

Blaser BD14 Bockdrilling

Ok. Some of you may be asking, “What in the heck is a Bockdrilling?” Easy. It’s a single shotgun, and 2 rifle barrel setup.  I thought this one was kinda neat since it had some pretty practical calibers involved. A 20 gauge. A 308. And a 22 Hornet.  If you think about it? That’s a combination that get’s quite a …

Steiner X7Fi IFS 4-28×56

In 2008 or 2009, I was working SHOT show and saw something I knew was going to change the rifle community drastically and forever. So much so, the thought actually crossed my mind that I should sell most of my high-end European scopes before the bottom falls out of the market.  What was it? Ballistic computers inside of rifle scopes.  …
