Nalpak’s Tuffpak Works!

I guess it shows what kind of sense of humor I have, that I really enjoy writing articles in the ‘Things That Don’t Suck’ series for TheTruthAboutGuns. My latest is on Nalpak’s Tuffpak firearm carrier. Frances and I were once again at the Government Training Institute‘s shooting range. We used the Tuffpak to transport three rifles and a PDW pistol. Its capacity bodes well for when we use it this November to carry three rifles for our Mozambique Safari with Mark Haldane’s Zambeze Delta Safaris! You can check out the review here.

Nalpak’s Tuffpak – Roadtrip Test!

A bit of the article that will appear in TheTruthAboutGuns.com in the ‘Things That Don’t Suck’ category. The video was recorded at the Government Training Institute‘s facility.

“As usual, I was anxiously waiting for my SKB double-rifle guncase to appear after my flight from Johannesburg into Atlanta’s Hartsfield International Airport. I breathed a sigh of relief as the agent brought it into the check-in room on the other side of the glass partition.

“If my brother had not grabbed my arm, I would have been pounding on the glass a few seconds later. Instead of placing the guncase onto the empty spaces on the shelf, or setting it down on the floor, she raised it up to chest height and dropped the case onto the concrete. I guess she was making it crystal clear that she was anti-hunting…

“That episode made me start wondering if there was another option available that might act to camouflage my firearms a bit better than my beloved SKB carrier…”

 

MG Arms Ultra-Light in 7mm-08

The two rifles from Carol and Kerry O’Day, owners of MG Arms, arrived yesterday. I was hoping to take both rifles to the range today, but we are receiving some of our ~50 inches of yearly rainfall. So, instead of rangetime, I spent several hours in a very enjoyable photo session with an MG Arms Ultra-Light chambered to 7mm-08. The plan is to photograph the ‘ultimate longrange tactical rifle’ (i.e. the Banshee) tomorrow.

I thought I would share a few photos of the Ultra-Light.

1) Whole Rifle Angled

6) Skeletonized with Bolt in

This Ultra-Light, like all MG Arms products, is a high-quality and accurate-as-heck firearm. To prove that I’m not being hyperbolic about the accuracy, I’m also including a JPEG of the sighting-in target that Carol sent to me.

3) 7mm-08 Group

The ammunition used to obtain this sub-sub-MOA group was hand-loaded by MG Arms staff. They included boxes of the same hand-loads with the Ultra-Light, thus I will have NO excuse for obtaining larger groups during my shooting sessions. No pressure there!
