A quiet day in nature

I love Tennessee Autumn…mid-November with 70*F weather. The targets we set up in the woods get populated with lead and copper, but without our ears getting a beating. This rifle is one of five SU16s built by keltec in 300 … Continue reading

A prepper’s dilemma

After the tour of Federal Ammunition plant in Anoka, I am convinced that fewer rounds of good ammo beat more bulk milsurp. The QC process at Federal is rather more impressive than the lack thereof that’s evident from the results … Continue reading

Good ammo for Sub2000

Sub2000 (and most 9mm rifles) seem most accurate with lighter weight bullets. Zinc alloy ball made by MI Bullet gives about 2.5MOA and rather good penetration. These use fairly fast powders, so no flash from the longer barrel. Velocity, if I recall … Continue reading

Is she a model, or real?

At the time this photo was taken, the model has never fired a gun. The image is ok, but not amazing. As we worked with long guns, cross eye dominance was discovered. A good quality red dot sight, like the … Continue reading

Less fear. More preparation.

A shotgun might be more appropriate, but a pistol with a laser can be quicker to grab from the nightstand.

Be very, verrry quiet…

Fun size buckshot

They may be short, but it’ still buckshot at 1200fps. Not much recoil to speak of. Numerous reviews mentioning use in a KSG (in my experience, each tube holds 12 shells, one review mentions 11). Now to actually find these … Continue reading

Improving Sub200mk2 further

The muzzle of mk2 is threaded, but 9mm doesn’t really need a flash hider. So I added a linear compensator aka noise re-direction device. Works very well: the report becomes a lot less noticeable, especially with subsonic ammunition which doesn’t … Continue reading
