WW2 Uhertl scope, others like it

Does anyone in or near Nasvhille have such an item that I could photograph? I could use images of any optics older than about 1970.

Just two lights without reflectors set at 180 degrees to each other, and almost no post-processing is required. Kel-Tec RDB-C in 6.5 Grendel, Meopta 6-24x scope, ESS goggles.

Scoping the PTR91

So I finally got curious about the accuracy potential of the MAD 33AR and the PTR91. With iron sights, I can do OK but not well enough to make hits on smaller targets. The scope mount I got didn’t quite fit the … Continue reading

7.62x54R proved a bit much for the eight year old girl

A little while ago, Alexis tried SVD sniper rifle, found the recoil excessive. The slanted stock shape contributed to the problem. 6.5 Grendel, a mild cartridge with high ballistic coefficient bullets, may be the reasonable solution for her long-range use. … Continue reading

Savage Rascal, scoped

I’ve written about Savage Rascal before. It’s one of my favorite little rifles, tiny enough for kids but built well enough for adults to use as well. I use mine with the default peep sight and that’s good enough for … Continue reading

Sometimes shorter IS better: a very handy CQB package

This is a Spike’s Tactical 300 Blackout pistol with 8.5″ barrel. It delivers fairly impressive external ballistics, but it’s still an AR pistol and requires specific training for effective use. When a friend came by with a registered short barrel lower (also Spike’s … Continue reading

A long time ago, I acquired a Primary Arms 4-14x scope with a front focal plane reticle. Recently, a friend in his 70s needed better glass for his .270 TC Venture deer rifle, so it moved onto his gun locker. … Continue reading

I blame DDB!

Back in 1994-95, David Dyer-Bennet was the main factor behind my increased interest in RKBA. His reasoned explanation of how he saw reality were compelling. He also had the books of RA Heinlein on his side. By 1996, I looked … Continue reading

Almost a DMR

Eight-year-old Taylor is running his dad’s AR15 with a 3×20 scope mounted, old-school, on the carry handle.  Two and a half inch group at 50 yards isn’t a bad start for the first time he shot anything larger than a 10-22. This … Continue reading

Light rifles and heavy

This rifle combines a GWACS Armory polymer lower and a Head Down upper. It is very light, and has little recoil — so little 13 year old Grace could get away with this shooting position. She was pinging a small … Continue reading
