The best knife for a gunfight?

Probably makes retention drills easier. Might complicate re-holstering.

Plinking today

Went to the range to take photos of Chris Cheng (Top Shot season 4 winner). A couple friends came along, one of them is shown here. This was her third range trip ever. Somehow I didn’t get any photos with … Continue reading

Amazing rifles shot this Tuesday

223-308-338 — all superbly accurate (we used Black Hills match ammo), all showing mild recoil and very moderate report, with great triggers and ergonomics. Hits on 500 yard steel targets were easy. Good optics obviously helped. More photos by DDB.

Эволюция слов за двадцать лет.

Интересно, сколько уже лет слово “мыльница” значит преимущественно “компактный цифровой фотоаппарат”? Термин “цифро-мыльница” уже не употребляется (плёночные вышли из обращения), а сами мыльницы для мыла вроде тоже канули в лету. Кто теперь ими пользуется кроме диких туристов… А с распространением … Continue reading

Rapid fire capable .308

Straight stock layout? Check. Battlecomp muzzle brake? Check. This RFB didn’t rise at all on firing. The SWFA scope also helped: unusually for a 1-4x, it’s a front focal plane design with a twist: at 1x, it has thick cross-hairs … Continue reading
