Gun Review: Accurate Ordnance Rifle

At one point during my life, I had a short-lived affair with a woman a bit older and much more respected in certain social circles than I was. Beyond the brevity of our tryst, the only other thing of note was the simultaneous boosting and destruction of my ego that occurred when I was with her. […]

Gun Review: Brocock Contour XL G6 Air Rifle

Call me old fashioned, but I like my rifles to take ammunition that contains all the parts necessary to make a projectile pop out the end of the barrel. You know, powder, primer, case, and all. So when our fearless leader handed me a package from Air Guns of Arizona that contained a Brocock Contour […]

Gun Review: FN SPR A5M XP Rifle

Basking in the cool relief provided by a newly installed central AC system, I found myself in a room pulling double duty as a combination office and gun room. I peered out the window of the newly constructed house at rows of other newly constructed houses in a newly constructed subdivision near my hometown. Sitting […]

Gear Review: Bushnell Elite 1 Mile ConX

Roughly eighteen months ago, I made the decision to get more serious about shooting at longer distances. This decision coincided with my brief foray into precision rifle shooting at the Bushnell Brawl and my continued interest in the Run n Gun event each year in Pecos. What I quickly learned was that science was my […]

Gear Review: Vortex Diamondback Binoculars

Hunting is roughly fifty four and a half minutes of sitting and waiting with five minutes of looking and seeing accompanied by thirty seconds of sheer panic thrown in for good measure. Those five minutes are supremely important, and nothing compliments your experience more than a good set of binoculars. Fact is, most game animals can stand […]

Gun Review: War Sport GPR-CC Rifle

After years of reading “Meh, another overpriced AR” hundreds of times in the comments section here, I’ve come to the conclusion that a certain vocal portion of our readership will never see the value in spending car downpayment money on a modern sporting rifle. As a guy who has seen what $100 worth of training buys, […]

Silencer Review: Dead Air Sandman L

The silencer, range time, and metering equipment for this review were provided by Capitol Armory based in Cedar Park, Texas Last month, I published a review of Dead Air’s Sandman S. As I alluded to in that review, Dead Air made their initial offering to the market with a series of .30 caliber silencers. Instead of […]

Gear Review: MultiTasker TWIST

As the years of workshop ownership pass, I’ve found myself in possession of more and more specialty tools. If you’d asked a spry tween named Tyler if he’d ever need a bench-mounted barrel vise, he would have likely cocked his head to the side like a dog who heard a whistle. Similarly, how many MGW […]

Silencer Review: Dead Air Sandman S

The silencer, range time, and metering equipment for this review were provided by Capitol Armory based in Cedar Park, Texas Many years ago, in a land far away, the team at SilencerCo was like a large oak tree. Big, beautiful, and capable of nearly blotting out the sun with its size and scope. Over the years, […]
