Normally I don’t put the model number in the title but with the number of different options Mossberg offers  for the rifle I want to be specific on which rifle I reviewed.

Kel-Tec KSG (Kel-Tec Shotgun) review

ksg_thumb.jpg

If you haven’t seen or heard about the Kel-Tec KSG, it is a bullpup 12 gauge shotgun with 2 magazine tubes and one barrel.   Introduction This shotgun is not your standard old faithful shotgun. It is not the shotgun that our grandfathers have been using since they were young pups. This is Kel-Tec’s entry into the modern day shotgun class. From first glance, you can see this shotgun is different. The KSG doesn’t have the look of that old American classic. This shotgun is part of the future of shotguns in both the LE/military market as well as the civilian market. Specs    Caliber: 12 gauge up to 3” shell Barrel length: 18.5″ Total capacity: 6+6+1 (using 3” shells) Weight empty: 6.9lbs Weight loaded: 8.5lbs Length: 26.1″ Height: 7″ MSRP: $990.00 Materials: Hardened Steel and Glass reinforced nylon (Zytel)  First Impressions This shotgun made its way on to the market … What you’re missing….

MAC talking about the new Targetvision Camera System [CORRECTION]

For those of you who have been long time readers of the Gearsofguns.com Blog know we have reviewed in the past, the Bullseye camera system which is very similar to this. I would love to get my hands on the Targetvision system  to test out and compare to the the Bullseye camera system.

The one thing I would like to know is if the camera is high definition. When I spoke with Bullseye out at SHOT 2014 they assured me they were upgrading their camera to full HD resolution. I haven’t been in contact with them since to see if that has happened yet but I know that is one of the upgrades I wanted when first testing Bullseyes system out.

The whole Targetvision system is contained in the box and in the tube.  MAC brings up the point a few times that you do not have antennas up in the air and that the whole camera package is very small.

The price points are [CORRECTION]

500 yard Bullseye camera system: $449

1 mile Bulleyes Camera System: $549 for the 1000 yard + $199 for the Antenna Upgrade  (Total: $749)

The Bullseye camera works great and has a lower price tag.

 

The Targetvision camera system sells only one camera which they claim can reach well over a mile. Price for that system is $1295

 

The two systems truly are the next gen in bench shooting spotting scopes.

What do you do when you are injured and cannot work?

For those of you who have met me in real life might know I am injury prone. So, it shouldn’t be much of a surprise to say I have done it again. A pesky old shoulder injury has flared back up and made life miserable.  Since I have been held up from being able to be on the range, a few things have fallen by the wayside. I have to look at the recovery time as a blessing and a curse. A curse as most would think, because I am limited on what I can do.  I also see it as a blessing, because I can use the recovery time to train off hand with laser trainers, get more organized and plan for the future. I am happy to say I should be healed up in the next few weeks.  I will then be back to my favorite “me time” … What you’re missing….
