    Rite in The Rain DOPE Logbook

    I had an article published recently on two data books that I bought, looking for something that wasn't as complex and expensive as a traditional data book but still provided a structured format for data collection. I picked up a Rite In The Rain logbook and a Storm Tactical pocket rimfire data...

    BCM Gunfighter Mod 1 SOPMOD Stock

    I had another review published that I wanted to share but really I wanted to highlight the Gunfighter Mod 1 SOPMOD stock from BCM. I wouldn't go so far as to say that I'm a fan boy but I've used a number of BCM products and I've generally been very happy with them. I guess it was last year I...

    Rifle Scopes Burris RT25 Long Range Review

    My review on the RT25 Long Range was published last week so I thought I'd share it with you all. "It’s almost become a cliche that we live in a golden age of long range optics with more good options available than ever before, but it’s true. Soon after I finished my review of the Burris...

    Gunsmithing New bubba gunsmithing project?

    Now that I finished up the HMR project, I was wondering what my new project should be. Then I remembered I had an old HS Precision stock stashed in the attic that had seen better days. I've basically treated this thing with wanton disregard but it could be fun. So what do you guys think...

    Precision Rimfire Practice Target 2.0

    A couple years ago I posted a 50 round, 50 yard precision rimfire practice target that I made to stay ready for local rimfire matches. That target set has been working great but like all things I felt like it needed to evolve so I set about working on version 2.0. There were two main things...

    Rimfire practice

    I'm working on reviewing the new Grayboe Phoenix stock so to do part of that I dropped a B14R barreled action in it and hit the range to do some rimfire practice yesterday. I'm not going to talk too much about the Grayboe at the moment but I think my rimfire practice session went pretty well...

    Maggie’s A fair dinkum day

    Mostly on a whim, my wife, @LaraCroft, decided to accompany me to the range today because she hasn't shot in a long time and wanted to get out. Kiddo went with the grandparents and I loaded up the family truckster with her and a few toys to head up to PNTC. Started her out on the G19 and...

    Lewisburg, WV NRL22X Match AAR

    Yesterday was a long day, drove about 4 hours early in the morning, shot all day, had an excellent time, and drove back. I checked out the COF on Friday and for the most part I thought the ranges were kinda short and sort of "consistent" I guess, lots of 25, 50, 75, 100 yard shots. The...

    Schmid Tool Nickel Teflon AR Trigger

    So I just got one of these to drop in an AR lower, the previous trigger was a stock Stag Arms trigger that was...well it wasn't good. The rifle I was using this trigger for is a basic do-all HD carbine (i.e. A nothing special 16" barrel, Aimpoint, BUIS, etc...) so I didn't want or need another...

    TSA find in NJ

    I ran across this while eating lunch and chuckled a bit because the way it reads you'd think the TSA just took down the Lord of War or some shit. Now, it's a dumbass move to try to sneak a firearm past TSA like this so I'm not really sympathetic to their plight but the news just had to...

    TAB Gear review

    I think a lot of us are familiar with TAB Gear so I wanted to post up a recent review of mine that got published so you can check out some of the items that they provide beyond crazy awesome slings. I trimmed the article up a little bit and added some pictures that didn't make it into the...

    The Range/Firearm Maintenance Kit

    Everyone has their own take on a kit that they pack away to take care of things that come up on the range and this one is mine. It's evolved over the years and now sort of fills a couple of roles beyond simple firearm maintenance issues. It used to be that I carried the cleaning items and...

    So my wife said...

    Recently, it seems like there's been an increase in the number of guys that are in relationships where they have to run certain purchases past their significant other, whether to get approval or just make them aware that they're buying something. I told my wife about some of the posts and let...

    Rifle Scopes Burris 5.5-30X56 XTR III Review

    So my Burris 5.5-30 review got posted so I thought I'd share it here like I did my Bergara B-14R review. I've also included some comments from another thread that expound on some FOV comparisons with the 5-25 ATACR that I mentioned in the article but didn't expand on as a way to consolidate my...

    Bergara B-14R Review

    Hey guys, my B-14R review got posted up so I thought I'd share it here for you guys too since it's been a topic of discussion. The .22LR “training rifle” concept goes back decades, except back then they called them cadet rifles, low recoiling versions of service rifles used for initial...

    So, I only had to do a short write up for a publication so now I’m going to offer some more comprehensive thoughts on the subject for you fine people. Unboxing and Overview I have to say that the Gen III 1-10 comes in one of the nicest scope boxes I’ve ever laid my hands on. It has a...

    Victor Company Titan Mods

    I did a couple modifications to my Victor Company Titan 10/22 to add an Arca rail and picatinny rail. The Arca plate is a low profile Sunwayfoto plate that I attached with two flat head 10-32 X 3/4" screws and 10-32 weld nuts. I used the Victor Company jig for attaching the Henderson Defense...

    Gunsmithing Bubbasmithing Part Deux: Hold Ma Beer

    I had a lot of fun with my last bubba gunsmithing adventure and this time I'm setting my sights on my Bergara HMR. The plan right now is to paint the barreled action, bed it into the stock, and then refinish the stock in a Kuiu Verde pattern. The paint I'm using for the barreled action is...
