AimShot’s New High-Power 223 Laser Bore Sight

After mounting the Leupold VX-3i scope on my Remington 700, it was time to zero it.  I’d used an earlier version of AimShot’s laser bore sight for my AR, but I found the laser wasn’t bright enough for my old eyes out in the bright sunlight. Since then AimShot has introduced a new model with […]

Hornady Rapid Rack

Hornady Rapid Rack

About a year ago, Hornady introduced the Rapid Rack. I instant recognized that it would solve a specific problem for me. For my wife, an AR-15 with a 30-round magazine of Winchester PDX1 ammo and a laser is the perfect home defense weapon. (Though her favorite rifle to shoot is the Mosin-Nagant, believe it or […]

Ruger LC9s

I bought a Ruger LC9s Pro. I’ve never found an acceptable way to carry my Colt Combat Commander IWB concealed.  AN OWB holster work on my right hip works great but only if I wear an oversized baggy untucked shirt. I wanted an IWB holster that I could put on and take off without getting […]

ProMag Polymer Magazines for HK93, Century C93

With my Century C93 (HK93 clone) back in action, I decided it was time to try out ProMag’s polymer magazine. I ordered one for this test from RobertRTG for $14.95. Some people have experienced problems with their C93 and the ProMag magazines.  Century International Arms is notorious for the inconsistent build quality of the C93 […]

Rifle Shooting at a 25-Yard Range

Every weekend I head for my favorite shooting range with my .45acp Colt Combat Commander and my .223 C93. “How does he shoot a .223 rifle at a 25-yard range?” Easy – with an M4/M16 25-meter zeroing target. This is the same target used to train our US Army Infantry soldiers. That little silhouette in […]

Century C93 Accuracy

Actually, this is more about my accuracy that the gun’s. The gun is still more accurate than I am. If you are US Army Infantry-trained then you’ll recognize the photo immediately. It is a standard M16/M4 25 meter zeroing target. Place it at 25 meters and the little silhouette in the middle will be the […]

E&L Mfg Brass Catcher

It works.  End of Story. E&L Manufacturing makes a line of brass catchers. E&L’s first brass catchers were made under contract for the US Air Force for the M16 and M60.  They were used on SAC bases where the Air Force did not want brass laying around on the tarmac where it might get sucked […]

Brass Grabber and the Century Arms C93 Review

The Century Arms C93 is a clone of the famous Heckler & Koch HK93.  As you can see from the photo, the Brass Grabber’s net cannot be moved far enough forward to completely cover the ejection port. To compensate, I adjusted the forward edge of the net so it was very close to the ejection […]

The Case For a Brass Catcher

I’ve begun shooting at an indoor range. I’m in Arizona. It’s summer. Right now it is 107F outside. Though it is nice and cool and more productive than shooting at the nearby outdoor range, the indoor range has some negatives: There really is no way to do any bench rest shooting. I can’t go forward […]

Brass Grabber  1911 Review

Brass Grabber is offered by GrabSomeBrass.com and is a net-likde device attached to a high-quality leather glove. After watching the video on their website it looked god and was worth a try. Because the Brass Grabber is attached to a glove, it’s important that the glove be a good fit.  Their website does an excellent […]

Hearing Protection for Shooters

I’m shooting at an indoor range now (it’s summertime here in Arizona) and one thing I noticed immediately is that it’s a lot louder. That prompted me to review the types of hearing protection available. First, some background about sound and noise reduction. Sound pressure in measured in decibels (db). The first thing to know […]

Is Reloading 223 Worth It?

The answer is: Yes. When you are reloading you can produce top quality ammo for less than the cost of the cheapest off-the-shelf ammo. But only barely cheaper. A quick check of this writing reveals that I can get Wolf polymer-coated steel cased 223 55bg ammo for about $260 per thousand plus shipping. that’s about […]
