Knob Creek Machine Gun Shoot 2014 Highlight Pictures

Some of our staff went down to the 2014 Spring Knob Creek Machine Gun Shoot. We always go with a to-buy list of certain weapons and supplies. Here you will see some interesting highlights from the show. Mostly from the “gun-show” area.   If you have never attended before, I have a few suggestions:   1. Bring your fancy hearing …

Scope Mounting Tip: Using a Bubble Level : By Scott Mayer

Scope Mounting Tip   For the most part, mounting a scope is a home-gunsmithing proposition. Most guns today come either pre-drilled and tapped for bases or with some type of rail system for tip-off rings. I end up mounting scopes a lot simply because of the nature of my work and usually the biggest challenges are either bases that are …

Shooting Pigs In Texas

A couple of good friends went down to Texas for an annual pig hunt. Those bad-boys down in Texas are quite skittish and are difficult to get close in on. But…his trusty Light Tactical Rifle (LTR) connected.  Of note, all the pork was processed into sausage. –Marky www.tacticaltshirts.com “Shooting Guns & Having Fun”

Most Interesting Gun at SHOT: Bondhus CL380 By Scott Mayer

Most Interesting Gun At SHOT Show   As expected, SHOT Show this year was awash with AR-15-type rifles and accessories and it was quite by accident that in the sea of modern sporting rifles I stumbled upon what I think was the most interesting new gun at the show. The Bondhus CL380 is being billed as the “smallest most accurate …

Cracked 1944 Finnish Mosin Nagant Getting Ready For Coyote Hunting.

Which is where this story begins…..   Now that all the gut piles have gone and the long hard winter is wrapping up, its time to get …

Rattlesnake On the Grill: By Scott Mayer

Rattlesnake!   My English pointer, Emma, was going insane at the sliding glass door. Her excited shrieking, yapping and jumping at the glass was typical of what I’ve come to expect when she sees a mule deer or javelina in the lot behind our house, but it was after dark and there was no way she could see anything through …

Hard Primer Testing. 308 ASYM Ammo.

  We were out getting some training and I had a hard-primer strike.  Well…at first I didn’t know it was that. I was fearful the issue was something wrong with the FP / striker in my Blaser. After pulling the bullet (ASYM 175g 308), checking there was powder, and putting the unloaded case in an AR to see if I …

338 Lapua Rifle KaBoom.

Here are some photos of a Savage 338 Lapua that suffered a catastrophic failure when the user, finding his brass cases were sticking in the chamber, was using cleaning rod to push them out. It is my understanding that this user was quite experienced and just had a “brain fart” and forgot what he was doing.   The shooter was …

Schmidt-Rubin 7.5 Swiss At the Range

  We ran across a guy shooting a Schmidt-Rubin the other day. Very nice rifle. Since we were also running a straight-pull rifle (Blaser R8), it was kind of a neat coincidence. The caliber was 7.5 Swiss in a military loading. The brand was called GP 11.  The really interesting information about the GP 11 loading is it’s popularity with …

Cold Weather Zero Testing: Blaser Tactical 2 & 308 ASYM 175g Ammo.

The day before Thanksgiving. I took some time on Wednesday to sneak out of the office and do some cold weather / zero testing. It was just below 30 degrees around here and I figured while the world was getting ready for turkey, I would get some trigger time. You will see a 5-shot group at 100 yards. The POA …

Home Camo Job on Your Rifle. Sig Sauer / Blaser Tactical 2

The Blaser project has been proceeding nicely. It’s a very nice rifle with lots of features but still doesn’t weigh a metric S-Ton. The only minor complaint I have against it is the color. In our part of the world (East of the Mississippi) black shapes stick out almost as bad as white. So we have known from day one …

10-8 Performance Sites on Glock 19 Gen 4 FDE.

I’ve always been a big fan of 10-8 Performance. I use some of Hilton Yam’s parts on my 1911s. I am very comfortable with the ledge type site that he sells. So I am taking some time this winter to get those sites installed on my new Glock 19 Gen 4 in FDE. We will be posting more pics and …
