By virtue of the fact that nearly ever trip to the range I’ve taken in the last five years has been centered around a gear or gun review, I’ve been forced to keep a close eye on data collection.
Having spent a great deal of time behind the trigger of an Accurate Ordnance built rifle, I’ve come to expect great, and I mean truly great, things. My AO built rifle is thoroughly, completely, and wholly accurate and consistent in ways that still shock me.
Above, you’ll see your humble author in one of the last races of my collegiate career. I’m fairly confident that this was the 400 meter hurdles, but it was nearly a decade ago and certain details have started to soften around the edges. Several months later, I tore my ACL which closed the book on […]
Many years ago, a coworker dropped an overstuffed egg carton on my desk. It was spilling over with eggs bigger than I’d ever seen. “Ducks!”, he declared. And that started my love affair with using duck eggs in baking. The yolk has more fat (yaaaas), and the whites have more protein (unnnggghhh). This makes for […]
The unfortunate reality that faces many silencer owners is that their AR-15 pistols and rifles are not designed or built to complement a silencer screwed to the muzzle. The reason for this is simple. The AR-15 is a gas operated rifle that relies on a portion of the expanding gases produced during the firing of […]
As it goes in life, sometimes, things need a bit of lube. Resizing brass is certainly no exception to the rule, and anyone who’s been reloading for any period of time has a sizing die somewhere on the bench with a case nearly welded to the inside and a bin full of shoulder dented cases.

Few things in life rival time spent behind a very expensive rifle. Oh sure, time with loved ones, walks on beaches, and well marbled ribeyes can certainly vie for top billing, but there’s a special place for crisp two stage triggers and bolts that slide like two pieces of oiled glass. Like all good degenerate […]
Wrapped in luxurious leather and surrounded by wood trim, I moved the column shifter from Park to Drive and starting rolling away from the very nice sales manager at Covert Chevrolet who had just handed me the keys to a brand new 2017 Chevrolet Silverado High Country Edition. From somewhere deep inside of my soul, and […]
As these things do, my trip to Alabama on behalf of Veteran Outdoors started innocently enough. A friend in the Atlanta, GA area texted me to ask if we’d ever get to shoot a rifle match together. I sent a message to one of the owners of Accurate Ordnance, my riflesmith of choice, to see […]
