Trader Keith’s Rifle Strap, Culling Belt and Cartridge Slide

My Safari in Mozambique this November is drawing near. Though South Africa will likely remain closed – blocking our airline trip through Johannesburg to Beira – Frances and I can use either Qatar or Ethiopian Airlines to get around SA. With those options in mind, we continue our trip preparation. Take a look at my most recent review on TheTruthAboutGuns to see some of the cool Trader Keith products we will be using in Coutada 11!

‘The Wanderings of an Elephant Hunter’ by W.D.M. ‘Karamojo’ Bell

Man, I use to really hate writing book reviews in school. That’s why I am so surprised by the enjoyment I get from writing them now. But, then again, the books I read in school often held little interest for someone in love with the writings of Ruark, O’Connor et al…

My newest review discusses the autobiography of the great elephant hunter, ‘Karamojo’ Bell. Bell’s claim-to-fame was the use of what would be considered ultra-light calibers for taking the toughest of Africa’s game animals. I hope you enjoy my foray into Bell’s life as a hunter. Check it out here.

Use Enough Bullet: .35 Whelen Improved and Swift A-Frame Bullets for Cape Buffalo

This ‘hunting’ story or more accurately, ‘preparation for hunting’ story, was very enjoyable to write. It allowed me to dream of using my late-Dad’s custom built rifle to take a Cape Buffalo. It is yet to be seen whether that dream will become a reality, but I’m going to give it a go this November. Hope you enjoy this article as much as I did putting it together. You can check it out here.

Nosler Model 48 Mountain Carbon Rifle

As I mention in this new review, I did not know Nosler made rifles until very recently. Since discovering that they do, I have been fortunate to review three of their rifles. Each of them has been very accurate, and easy to shoot. Such was the case with this latest Nosler model – the Mountain Carbon. I was given the choice to review a Mountain Carbon in either 6.5 Creedmoor or 26 Nosler. I chose the latter because I was interested in this proprietary cartridge. You can check out my full review here.

H-S Precision PLC Long Range Carbon Fiber Hunting Rifle

I have been really fortunate to get to see, and work with, wonderful firearms turned out by some of the best manufacturers in North America and Europe. The rifle featured in my review that appeared yesterday is no exception. H-S Precision is known for creating the highest-quality, best-performing parts for firearms. They also are lauded for putting together some of the finest custom-built, long-range rifles in the industry. I would encourage you to take a look at my review to see their newest addition to their line of hunting rifles.

Longshot LR-3 UHD Target Camera

Hey, Guys. This stands as one of my most challenging, and enjoyable, reviews. Challenging because of what I had to do to feel like I had accomplished a thorough review, and enjoyable because this product delivered more than it claimed. You’ll have to read the article to see what I mean, but I hope you will check it out here.

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!

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.

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.
