Otis Technology Elite Cleaning System Review


I have this weird need to collect cleaning kits. It isn’t because I need 7 identical  12 gauge brushes or because I am lacking in the cleaning rod or cleaning cable department. It seems everyone has their own take on what a shooter needs to help them achieve the best clean possible and I like to see what the differences are. Most companies send out their version of oil and cleaner or even just CLP. However, so far, as much as I am willing to try new types of cleaners or CLPs I do favor my M-Pro7 32oz spray for cleaning.   Specs – Over 40 firearm-specific cleaning components in a nylon case– Six (6) Memory-Flex® Cables of varying length for effective and correct Breech-to-Muzzle® cleaning– Twenty-two (22) bronze bore brushes to remove copper deposits and other fouling– Obstruction removal tools for jammed cases and other blockages– Specialized precision tools … What you’re missing….

Nikon Monarch 3 6-24×50 SF Matte BDC Review


I have been provided the materials needed for this review. However, my opinions are entirely my own and I have not been paid to publish positive comments. I had no clue Nikon made sport optics prior to going to my first SHOT Show. I only knew Nikon as the company who had made my last 3 digital cameras and outside of that I really didn’t know anything else.

Kilimanjaro Gear Review PT: 1 The Knives


I have been provided the materials needed for this review. However, my opinions are entirely my own and I have not been paid to publish positive comments. I was contacted by Kilimanjaro Gear asking if we would be interested in reviewing a few of their products. I had not heard of them prior to getting their email but after looking on their website I found 3 items we were interested in reviewing. This is a review of the two knives that I received. The Back Story I am not really a knife guy or know much about what makes one metal better than another. My only experience is, that I have carried at least one knife on my person everyday for years. My grandfather always carried one in his pocket and in the BSA we always carried one. When I turned 18 it was just natural to always have one … What you’re missing….

Taofledermaus: Bullets vs. a LOT of Hard Drives

Taofledermaus: Bullets vs. a LOT of Hard Drives

I have been following TAOFLEDERMAUS‘ youtube channel for years and I have always enjoyed the content he has created.  Since I am having hard drive troubles myself right now I would love to just put them down range and blow them to pieces. Sadly I have so much data I have to try and pull from them I will just let Jeff of Taofledermaus do the shooting of his drives and let you enjoy. Tweet

Ohio Ordnance Works 1919A4 Bundle Review


I have been provided the materials needed for this review. However, my opinions are entirely my own and I have not been paid to publish positive comments. Before I talk about this 1919A4 belt fed firearm I have to talk about Ohio Ordnance Works. I have never met them in person but I can tell you I have the upmost respect for the men and women of this company. Normally when working with a firearm manufacturer I work with one person and if I have any problems they are the only one I can contact to get a problem resolved. This company however is not like that. When I had a problem with the 1919 on a Tuesday morning I did not speak to my contact Bob Conroy I spoke with the owner directly. I will talk more about that a little later on and help further explain why I … What you’re missing….

Remington R1 Enhanced 1911 Review


When I was younger I fancied myself a “Glock” man. In all of the debates with my friends I held true to my Glock fandom and that there wasn’t a 1911 on the face of this earth that could sway me. I have grown up a lot since then and I have experienced one or maybe two more guns since I was a youth. As I have matured and become a reviewer, I know that my tastes and knowledge has grown with me. I have been on the hunt for a 1911 that I could put the Atticus James stamp of approval on for about 2 years now, and I can say I have finally found it. Side Story  Before I get to reviewing this gun I wanted to share a story with you. As some of you know, I name my guns like they are my children and each … What you’re missing….

Targetvision Short Range Wireless Spotting Scope Review


At SHOT Show 2014 I met Clay Rhoden one of the co-founders of TARGETVISION at media day at the range. Having just finished reviewing a similar short range target camera viewing system, I was interested in seeing what TARGETVISION had done differently. Two of the most noticeable things I first saw was that it was a self contained camera and wireless transmitter housed in a plastic tube vs. the tool box the other company uses. The other thing was the HD camera that they use. There were three items total that were shipped to me. The camera system, the charging cord and a small tripod that the camera screws into. This means there isn’t much to misplace. This is a big thing for me since I carry a large amount of gear to the range. When I first used the camera, the picture (seen below) was blurry. I called the … What you’re missing….

Leupold Mark AR MOD 1 1.5-4x20mm Firedot-G SPR Review


I suck at shooting. There I have admitted it, they always say the first step to recovery is to admit you have a problem. Now I could bore you with all kinds of completely legitimate excuses reasons why I suck. I could tell you it is because the ammo we use is cheap and doesn’t have the correct tracking software installed for the paper targets we use. I could also tell you it is because the large hadron collider causes abnormal parallaxes in the scope making me see the bullseye 6 inch low. Maybe I could tell you it is because my parents told me from a young age that if I didn’t eat all my brussel sprouts I would grow up to be a poor shot. All of these excuses reasons are one hundred and seven percent accurate and my reason for my lousy groupings. But today I want … What you’re missing….

Mecharmor Defense Systems TacOps-1 Charging Handle Review


As I discussed in the review of my Windham .308 AR, I am someone who likes to be able to get as much meat on a charging handle as possible. I want to be able to grip and rip when I am running my rifle and the milspec charging handle is just too small in my opinion. When I have to pull back a .308 bolt carrier group, I want to be able to do that without losing grip. The old saying of “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” came to mind a lot during my research phase of changing the charging handle on Windham .308 AR. My AR-15 (AWS ZA-15) came with a Mecharmor TacOps-1 charging handle.  I fell in love with it the first time I racked the bolt back. I have used the Mecharmor charging handle in my training and I have committed the feel to … What you’re missing….
