Personal Training Day

Had the Blaser Tactical 2 out. 308 barrel on. Shooting some of Doc’s 155g hand-loads.  This was a personal training session so I didn’t film any content or produce any articles.

Ivory Stocked Rifle

I will start off by saying that I like Ivory. I like it as grips for firearms and have carried a ivory gripped pistol professionally in the past. It’s way, way, way more durable than most modern readers would believe. I suspect the modern penchant to view ivory as fragile is attributable to the significant price increases more than actual …

How Not To Blow Up Your Blaser Rifle

Caliber change weapons seem very slick on paper. And in the right hands, they really offer some interesting options to the conscientious end user. But THAT’s the key. One of the reasons why the military and many law enforcement agencies don’t like to mess with caliber conversions is…it’s just one more damn thing that can and will go wrong. But …

NEOPOD: A High Quality Plastic Bipod?

Yesterday, I took delivery of a new bipod being made by a company called Steinert Sensing Systems out of Norway. The name is Neopod Ultralight Hunting BiPod. If the Steinert name sounds vaguely familiar to you, I imagine their acoustic chronogragh might ring a bell. Here is the most interesting thing about this bipod. It’s made out of plastic! Yeah, …
