In January, at the Dallas Safari Club Convention, Frances and I had the opportunity to interview Jack Homa of Electronic Shooters Protection. ESP’s electronic ear plugs are at the top of the market. Recently, Jack sent me a pair of their STEALTH ear plugs. About a week ago, I used these when reviewing a Daniel Defense DDM4 PDW. I will be writing a full review for the STEALTHs after I use them for several more firearm reviews and an upcoming hunt for quail. As a part of the full review, we put together this short video describing the use, and utility, of these fantastic ear plugs!
Not a flattering picture of the photographer, but this is how I often have to position myself and my ‘subject’ when that subject is a long-gun. Those big lights to the right and left of the rifle are soft-boxes. You are likely to have seen these, if you’ve ever set foot in a professional photographer’s studio. No, I am NOT a professional photographer. But, I have asked professional photographers how I could improve my photography.
The professional’s answer, “No subject likes [looks good with] flash photography. So, use indirect light inside [soft-boxes or a window] or shoot your photos outside.”
My photographs have improved greatly since taking that advice to heart. Understand, this is not a reflection of my skill, but of professionals who were willing to mentor a beginner.
And, the results today? The Daniel Defense DD5 rifle, a bear skin and voila!
Well, the good folks at Daniel Defense have trusted me with some more of their cool products! At the top is their DDM4 PDW pistol in caliber 300 Blackout and at the bottom is their DD5 V4 rifle in 6.5 Creedmoor.
The pistol will be tearing up berms at my gunclub, while the rifle is set to head to the GTI Legion facilities where it will be fired at targets out to 800+ yards.
Can you say “Yeah Baby!!”
Stay tuned for the reviews of both firearms in TheTruthAboutGuns.com.
Please forgive the French. Just a short note to say that the accompanying photo shows what a person who has never shot a center-fire rifle before did with a Delta 5 rifle using Hornady ELD ammunition today – from 715 yards! That’s not a misprint!! Those were the last two shots fired today. And, they were fired by my sweet, novice-rifle-shooter-wife, Frances.
