More detailed information to come on Dad’s AR-15 build for prairie hunting, but I wanted to post a brief range report from this past Sunday.

Dad’s AR-15 has a 20″ Heavy Bergara Barrel with a 1-8″ twist, rifle length gas system and target crown. Based on the weight and effort it takes to lug [...]

Nightforce Optics Torture Test

On October 23, 2014 By

A while back when I was into hunting shows I remember seeing some fellas from a predator hunting troop stop by the Nightforce Optics shop and walk through the process of building one of their rifle scopes.

Hunting with Night Vision

On October 8, 2014 By

It’s been a different experience for sure. I’ve shot with Night Vision equipment a few times.

We were shooting 200 yards from the hip and shoulder [...]

It’s partly the reason I chose [...]

Glock 42 Magazine Extensions

On September 11, 2014 By

My buddy Roy emailed me the other day asking about a Glock 42 magazine extension that I might recommend based on my extensive use of the pistol so far (don’t worry, review coming).

Honestly the pistol has handled so well due to its frame shape even without mag extensions that I’ve failed to even [...]

Jon demonstrates the reliability of Minuteman Munitions 9mm ball ammo by [...]
