Today an Out Of Battery (OOB) failure, in a P22 with Remington ammo, broke the frame and sprayed debris into the shooters face. Fortunately the boy who was shooting this pistol was wearing his eye protection.
Today I got to try shooting a .308 FN SCAR. Recoil was pleasant in that light rifle. Sight picture similar to an AR15s, the rear sight resembling a KAC 2-600m rear sight. Much to my surprise, the owner of the rifle (new out of the box) was not on paper at 100 yards. When he set up … Read moreGot to try out a SCAR-H

These are useful for a number of reasons including, the ability to quickly remove a damaged optic, quick access to iron sights, and being able to switch optics for different roles.

First I run into many people running muzzle breaks on short barreled rifle (SBR) variants. These short 5.56 rifles only gain marginal recoil reduction, and the cost of a large increase … Read moreOn muzzle devices
Got to shoot a Ruger SR556 last Saturday. Recoil was smooth and pleasant, the narrow railed hand guard felt nice in the hand. However when I field stripped it, I found metal shavings under the rear take down pin all the way up under the bolt catch. Bolt carrier tilt was shaving metal from the buffer tube.

It is funny that WordPress would name the default starting post “Hello World!”. I had been a computer programmer for a few years before I ever wrote a C++ Hello World script. It didn’t compile on the first try. Or the second. Didn’t run either. Fortunately I am better with firearms then I was with computer … Read moreHello world!
