Eley Target vs Fed Range

with No Comments

Brit vs Merica
I compare Eley Target groups versus Federal Range Pack “blue box” 22LR in my nothing-fancy stock Ruger 10/22 takedown at 50yrds. Ammo variety is pretty slim at all of my local stores. This ammo was donated by my buddies who wanted to see how their ammo shot in my videos.

Match vs. Plinking at 100yrds

with No Comments

Eley Edge 22LR vs Aguila Super Extra HV at 100yrds. We know that expensive match-grade ammo shoots better than cheap bulk pack ammo at 50yrds. But does that difference still apply at 100yrds? I compare the performance of both ammo in a typical factory stock Ruger 10/22 takedown. Special thanks to Harry S.

Wild (turkey) visit to the range

with No Comments

An unexpected visitor was spotted at the Santa Clara Field Sports Park rifle range. The bird was unfazed by the gun fire around it. Wild game is not allowed to be hunted on county park land that surrounds the range. Wild turkey and hogs have grown accustomed to grazing unmolested around the rifle and pistol range and have gotten so bold as to walk onto the range itself.

Bazic Correction Fluid: Better than Liquid Paper or WhiteOut

with No Comments

Bazic Correction Fluid. No this is not an April Fools prank, that is the actual brand name. Despite the Dad Joke pun, this office supply has all the best features found in Name Brand corrections fluids and does so for half the price. We don’t often need correction fluid anymore because we have cheap color inkjet and laser printers. But it’s surprising how handy an unopened bottle is when you do.

BOG Deathgrip and Great Divide

with No Comments

The BOG Deathgrip Ultralight tripod adapter and the BOG Great Divide turns a photo tripod into a rifle tripod-mount for hunting or long-range shooting. The Deathgrip worked well as intended but the Great Divide wasn’t able to hold my rifle level despite tightening it down as best I could.

Range Testing the MoTac Recoil Pad

with No Comments

I follow-up on my review of the Missouri Tactical Sub2000 Gen2 Recoil Pad. I take it to the range to test its ability to reduce felt recoil on the KelTec Sub2000. I recruit two random testers at the range, a Range Safety Officer, and an AK shooter.

Wireless Presentation Clicker

with No Comments

This is a handy little presentation clicker with an emphasis on tiny. About the size of a whiteboard marker, this has a next and previous slide button, a laser pointer, volume control, and is AAA battery powered. It also comes with a USB-A (that’s the big flat standard USB-A connection) and the newer USB-C connected dongle that fits inside the clicker. Attach the USB dongle to your computer and the clicker connects wireless via Bluetooth as a pseudo-keyboard.

EZShot Budget Weapon Light

with No Comments

The EZshoot Rail Mount LED Tactical Flashlight 750 Lumens Magnetic USB Rechargeable Weaponlight

The EZShot is a 750-lumen budget weapon light that tries to deliver the features of lights that are 2 to 5 times the price like Surefire, Streamlight, and Olight. Its over-built construction makes it appear chunky; presumably allowing it to withstand impact and physical abuse.

But perhaps they should have built it more like a sub than a tank. A lack of o-ring seals is its Achilles heel making it vulnerable to water creeping in through the lens and the head. On the plus side, if you hate strobe mode, you can only activate this through a separate button on the body that can not be activated accidentally. And after testing I can confirm that it does output more than 750 lumens.

For a budget weapon light, it functions well. But like a Gremlin, don’t get it wet.

A Guide to Budget Mini-Tripods

with No Comments

With the miniaturization of action-cams and smart-phones, we no longer really need full-sized SLRs or VideoCams. Smaller, lighter, recording devices means smaller and lighter stands and tripods. I review two popular formats for mini-tripod/photo stands. Ubeesize budget mini-tripod and Elegant selfie-stick tripod. Ideal for travel vloggers and photographers. They have limitations but in a pinch could be used as a photo or video tripod for DSLRs and phones.
