Range Report

June 13th, 2013 · No Comments · Personal

With back-to-back-to-back fireworks shows keeping me busy next week through the first week of July I wanted to hit the range as much as possible before then and the weather has been cooperative this past week. I went on Sunday and Wednesday and also plan to go this coming Saturday as well. I’ve been running […]

Range Report

May 10th, 2013 · No Comments · Personal

So this trip to the range was all sorts of fucked up – but I’ll get to that. First, let’s discuss the new scope rings, which I specified in my previous after action report would be replacing the Leupold rings I found to be highly incompatible with my scope/rifle setup, not to mention just bad […]

More archery

April 20th, 2013 · No Comments · Personal

So I had the brilliant idea to set up the archery target in the basement, which I probably should have done from the start. There are a few downsides – the ceiling is lower so when I draw I need to detach my quiver so the arrows in it don’t hit the beams/ducts/pipes over my […]

Exploring Archery

So I can’t find any ammo. Anywhere. I went to Dick’s last weekend and the guy behind the counter told me people are lining up outside at 7am, waiting for the store to open at 9am so they can buy up all the ammo that just arrived on the truck that morning. I called up […]

Range Report

Let’s start with the new hotness, the 6-24×50 Viper PST from Vortex Optics, shown above mounted with Leupold 30mm QRW rings and with the sunshade screwed on the objective. I put a lot of time researching for a decent high-power rifle scope, considering glass from well-known companies like Nikon and Leupold. But it was in […]

Range Report

February 28th, 2013 · No Comments · Personal

There was a slight break in the rain/snow/cold/miserable weather we’ve been treated to this February so I took the opportunity to hit the range along with some friends. Since it was to be the first time they would be shooting most of these weapons at most of these ranges, I had thought to myself earlier […]

Range Report

February 7th, 2013 · No Comments · Personal

This past Saturday my buddy Sasha and I stopped by the local gun range that sells weapons to look for .22 rifles. He wanted another semi-auto assault rifle but I’ve always wanted to add a bolt-action rifle of some caliber to my armory. I figured since it’s useless to buy a bigger caliber to shoot […]

Range Report

I finally made it back out to the Fort Dix rifle range for the first time since last month, in some part because I’ve been rather busy but largely due to the trouble I’ve had finding .223 or 5.56 ammo to shoot out of my AR15. Not even kidding, it’s practically impossible to find a […]

Range Report

December 26th, 2012 · 1 Comment · Personal

Spent all day at the Rod & Gun range this past Sunday to get some serious time behind my new AR-15 I picked up last month. It is a Mossberg MMR Hunter – I know, when I saw it at the range while perusing their selection of assault rifles and they told me it was […]

Geminids Report

While it wasn’t as cold out as it was earlier this year for my Quadrantids watch, it still felt like 27°F according to The Weather Channel. Luckily there was no wind really, so that helped. Still, it was bundles of clothes, blankets and a cup of piping hot chocolate (with some Bailey’s mint creme, mmm) […]
