Good Day, Bad Day, Same Day

So a few days ago, Freeze and I were discussing something he has been forced to wrap his head around: Bad video.  When you shoot video, there will be bad video. Hell! Someone out there probably thinks all my video is bad video. And that’s fair.  But don’t get it twisted…we don’t speed up or fluff stuff to make us …

AR-47 Function Test

I’ve put together a 7.62×39 AR.  These are the first shots and a function test.  Shots done with military ball ammo and soft-point hunting ammo.  Freeze www.John1911.com “Shooting Guns & Having Fun”

AimPoint 6x Magnifier

Those who have followed the podcast have heard about me getting my ass kicked, rank wise, in a Sheriff of Baghdad carbine class.  I knew halfway through, I was going to have to mount a magnifier on my truck gun. After looking at some of the LPVO’s, I decided to just go with a AimPoint 6x flip-over mag.  My thinking …

4” Steel at Range

So…your gun shoots 1/2 MOA all day long? Good. Now hit these 4” steel plates with one shot. At 450 yards. 500 yards. And 600 yards.  1 shot.  Now after the shot is over. Whether you hit it or missed it? Was it because of you? The gun’s accuracy? Or did your shot fall inside or outside the margin of …

Gemtech Integra First Shots

If you follow some of our social media accounts, you are likely aware that we have taken possession of a Gemtech Integra integrally suppressed upper.  Not that it’s a big deal. But the NFA paperwork took 10 months to clear. Which is ridiculous, but seems to be fast by most accounts.  This video just shows basic function test, zeroing, and …

KET Brass Deflector 

So a company known as Kinetic Energy Tools reached out and wanted to know if we were interested in trying out one of their products? Namely their Brass-Deflector.  Immediately I thought about, “Doc”. He is our resident reloader and we are regularly chasing his brass across our ranges. So after conferring with him, I told KET to go ahead an …

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 …

Up For Down – Down For Up

Playing with a fully adjustable stock. The general rule is to raise the butt for prone. And lower the butt for standing.  So let’s see how this goes? I do know that getting a better bipod for this configuration is a must. Something further out on the hand guard AND quick detachable.  Rifle – Blaser R8 Caliber – 243. Barrel …

POTD – Zero Confirm At The Cool Kid Range

Had the chance to run over to the Cool-Kid LE range and do some quick zero tweaking. We have a thing. So in order to get the things ready for the thing, we had to run over to the place and mess with our things.  I’m sure that all makes complete sense.  😉    Sincerely,  Marky www.John1911.com “Shooting Guns & …

GRS Ragnarok Rides in a Hog Saddle

Being a Blaser guy used to mean always being behind the curve when it comes to all the cool kid gear. So much so I have a confession: Never have I ever fired a rifle from a standing tripod, or used one of these Hog Saddle type mounts.  Now that the GRS Ragnarok chassis comes with Hog Saddle cuts, I …

This Pump Pillow is a Thing

So…a few weeks back, I had decided to up my rear bag game. For a decade, I have essentially used only the same one. But where to start? Obviously, “Officer Mike” of course! Not only is he a SWAT sniper, but he is always on the cutting edge of shooting gear. If he doesn’t own it? He knows about it.  …
