Meade Instruments Wilderness™ Spotting Scope – 20-60x100mm Review The Prologue While visiting with one of my cousins on a recent layover in Dallas, we started talking about her sister who works for Meade Instruments in the marketing department. I went home and checked out Meade’s site. I had found they had a few sporting optics. I wondered why I had never heard of Meade before. I explored the website further and I looked into their sports optics. I found their target audience to lean more in the general sporting optics needs and astronomy. I called my cousin and she set me up with a Meade Instruments Wilderness 20-60x100mm spotting scope. I requested the largest scope they make because we are trying to see 6 to 8mm holes at 200 yards. My general rule of thumb is, the bigger the optic the better chance of making out what we just hit. … What you’re missing….
A Glock 30 Short Frame 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 like the idea of not trying to be in the first wave of bloggers to review a firearm. I prefer to wait a year after a product comes out to review it because it means I have a chance to request to spend more time with a firearm. That way I get to know it more mindfully without worrying about the other reviewers waiting in the long line to test a firearm out. I own a few Glocks and my favorite of all of them is my Gen 2 G21 .45ACP 13 round pistol. I requested the Glock 30SF for review about 5 months back, after seeing it at SHOT Show 2014. I have always been … What you’re missing….

With this being the 4th flashlight I have reviewed on GEARS you might be wondering if I really use a flashlight that often and if I need all of them. You might think a flashlight is a flashlight is a flashlight in terms of finding one you like based on your needs and how that flashlight SHOULD be your “end all”… or at least until you find a new “end all” flashlight if you use one enough. My Truth My truth is a little different; I collect flashlights because there is always a time and place for each of mine. I have a small Extremebeam 160 Lumen that I like to keep on me when I am going for lightweight or when I … What you’re missing….
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. Kilimanjaro Gear was kind enough to ship us a few products to test out, the first of which was two of the knives they make. You can find that review here. If you have ever spent much time with me you will know I carry the Kilimanjaro Gear Tactical Elite Mirati bag with me anywhere I go. It can be full of anything, my gym gear, my laptop, my camera gear or whatever else I might need for the day. Kilimanjaro Gear Tactical Elite Mirati While looking at the different bags Kilimanjaro Gear had to offer, I wanted to get one Tactical elite and one Tactical bag for review so I could compare the two. I picked the Mirati because I travel and … What you’re missing….
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 spend most nights doing things like going to the gym or grocery shopping or working so it has become automatic for me to grab one of my many flashlights before heading out the door, day or night. I like to carry at least one flashlight on me at all times. You just never know when you are going to need it. If you asked one of my friends or family they would probably all say the same thing when it comes to me and flashlights. “Atticus must be afraid of the dark with all the different flashlights he has around him”. A few months ago I acquired an LED Lenser F1R flashlight for review because of it size and lumens. While 130 … What you’re missing….
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….
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.

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….
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.
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….
