On the [Review] Road again…

On Sunday, March 1st, Frances and I head to the Government Training Institute‘s facilities in Barnwell, South Carolina. (No, we are NOT going there for the Presidential Primary!) Chris Lux and the other folks at GTI have given us permission to bring a ton-of-stuff out to review on their ranges.

“What ‘ton-of-stuff’ is being lugged to GTI for reviews?”

Well we are bringing three rifles (1 each from Daniel Defense, H-S Precision and MG Arms), a pistol (also from Daniel Defense), a Tuffpak in which to transport all the firearms, a shooting bench from Royal Stukey, the brand new 4StableSticks fieldrest (for shooting from a sitting/kneeling position) and a set of Electronic Shooters ProtectionSTEALTH‘ ear plugs.

Of course, we also have the LabRadar chronograph, Kestrel 5700X Weather Meter with Applied Ballistics, Vortex Razor Spotting Scope and Vortex Fury Rangefinder/Binoculars that we have reviewed before. Oh, and we have been sent over 450 rounds of ammunition; most of the ammo was sent from Neal Emery of Hornady, but we also have reloads for the MG Arms rifle and some Federal cartridges for the pistol.

Our design is to ‘walk’ the rifles out to target distances of up to 700 yards. Cannot wait to shoot all of the firearms, and watch Frances do the same. I am also pumped to see how the firearms, Tuffpak, bench, fieldrest and ear protection perform.

Yes, you are correct. A magical weekend of shooting sh** is about to happen for the Arnolds!

Stay tuned for a ‘ton’ of review articles at TheTruthAboutGuns.com, complete with photographs and videos of each of the products being reviewed!

Gear for GTI reviews

(Please excuse the plastic. There aren’t corpses, we’re just having some painting done in my trophy room/office.)

South Fork Dogs!

My recent article in the TruthAboutGuns.com – describing the ‘driven’ Pheasant shoot at South Fork Hunting Preserve – highlighted a few of the wonderful dogs we encountered. Because of space limitations for my article, I could not include many of the beautiful canines that were present. So, I thought it would be appropriate to provide a montage of some of the other ‘companions’ Frances photographed. Thank you again to Jacob and Colby and all the owners and handlers who gave us the chance to get to know their wonderful hunting dogs – or soon-to-be-hunting-dogs!

LabRadar review

A brief review of mine has just appeared on TheTruthAboutGuns.com. The Editor, Dan Zimmerman asked a group of us to come up with short essays to go into a new series titled ‘Things That Don’t Suck’. My first review is on the wonderful Doppler-based chronograph called Labradar. I have use this product for 15 firearm reviews, and it rocks! The best part of this product compared to light-based chronographs I have used is that…I have never shot the unit!! O.K. so that is a positive, but the other positives are listed in this essay. Check it out here.
