Daniel Defense DD5 V5 Rifle in 6.5 Creedmoor

Hey Guys, sorry it has been a while, but I’m working with an agency to get a new site put together with all the bells and whistles expected for a ‘professional’ writer…ok, semi-pro maybe…

In the meantime, please check out my newest review at TheTruthAboutGuns on another fantastic Daniel Defense product, their DD5V5 Sporting Rifle. You can use this link to see the full review!

ESP STEALTH EAR PLUGS

I LOVE MY STEALTH ELECTRONIC EAR PLUGS!
 
O.K. so that may seem a bit hyperbolic for those who know that without my hearing aids I’m, well, pretty deaf. So, why do I love Electronic Shooters Protection’s STEALTH ear plugs? Read here to find out.
 
Seriously, I am NOT blowing smoke up anyone’s skirt. These guys know how to provide hearing protection and hearing enhancement while you’re on the range or while hunting.

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…”

 

Dateline Black Creek Georgia: Daniel Defense Factory Tour

Here’s a snippet from my article on my tour at the Daniel Defense manufacturing facility:

“I was introduced to Joe Marler (Law Enforcement Sales Manager at Daniel Defense), the host for my visit to the Daniel Defense manufacturing facility, when we both participated in the Government Training Institute Legion‘s ‘Precision Rifle With Elevated Shooting Course‘.”

During the course, Joe and I were paired as we shot from a railing. I could hear him muttering about how my .300 Winchester Magnum was vibrating him off his rest. I told him that he too should be shooting a real-man’s caliber. I guess that is when he found out I was a smart aleck. Even so, Joe seemed pleased to act as my guide for a tour of the Daniel Defense facility near Savannah, Georgia.”

Check out the Video interview with Joe that accompanies my article submitted to TheTruthAboutGuns.com. Particularly listen close to the final quip from Joe…

Gear Review: Stukeys Shooting Bench

I cannot emphasize strongly enough looking for a shooting bench, that you should check this product out. My review just came out here on TheTruthAboutGuns.com. I have NEVER shot from a more stable rest. Frances and i were hitting >90% of our targets (12×18 inches maximum size) up to 715 yards. If you don’t have benches from which to shoot your rifles or handguns, this is the product you ought to look to. NO, I was not given this bench, and NO I am not being paid to write this. The bench worked!
8) Worked perfectly for Standard Bolt action rifle...
 
 

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

Electronic Shooters Protection, STEALTH Ear Plugs…They Work!

STEALTH on Skin

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!
