224 Valkyrie: JP RIFLES

Came across this.. cool info

When I first heard about the .224 Valkyrie I was a bit “meh, another cartridge”… but the more I checked into the more intrigued I became.  Being a long time 6.8 SPC fan for hunting the thought of it being necked down to 22 and new heavy and high BC bullets got me pretty excited.  Also, the thought of some light varmint bullets screaming out of an AR15 platform got my blood pumping.  I came across this video from JP Rifles and thought I would share:



A continuation of my introduction to long range shooting.  Hopefully I provided some insight into getting started shooting long range and you are interested in exploring this side of the sport.  Today, we get into more detail on the gear that enables you to be more consistent in hitting your targets.  You might not need to spend as much as you think, but there are some minimum baseline requirements.


Precision Rimfire: A Primer

In the “off season”, if there is such a thing in the shooting world, I try and keep my skills crisp with rimfires. Sometimes it gets downright daunting reloading for a centerfire precision rifle. Enter the lowly, unforgiving, easy to shoot rimfire.
I say unforgiving simply because a rimfire at 50 yards using subsonic ammunition will highlight all of your shooting flaws, (at least for me that is).
A tiny bit too much pressure here, or a slight bit less bipod preload there, and your shot goes wide. It will definitely keep you on your toes, and you will find yourself begin to check off that internal marksmanship checklist.
The first part is the easiest. Picking the rifle. I have rarely come across a .22 rimfire rifle that wouldnt “shoot”. Now, “shooting”, is all relative really. Once you understand the capabilities of the hardware you are using, is when you strive to match its capabilities.


Gun Range Etiquette – How to Behave and Stay Safe

Gun Reviews

If you are planning a trip to the gun range, you will need to keep a few tips on etiquette in mind so that you can stay safe and avoid creating enemies. Shooting is a lot of fun, but making certain mistakes during your trip can get you banned or cause an injury to occur.

Luckily, following the rules is easy and serves to allow everyone to enjoy their time at the range. Some people ignore these tips because they don’t think that the advice applies to them, but range officers won’t hesitate to ban those who follow that path.

So let’s look at some things you should do to make sure your behaviour is acceptable and maintains safety.

Secure Your Firearm

The last thing that you want to do is walk into a gun shop or range with a loaded firearm in your hand.

SIG SAUER Advanced Sport Pellet Airguns


SIG SAUER is known for producing some of the world’s finest firearms.  Did you know they manufacturer their one line of high-quality airguns?  Using the tag, “Shoots like a SIG – because it is one” the Advanced Sport Pellet line includes both pistols and rifles modeled after some of SIG’s most popular models.  These airguns are excellent choices for training new shooters or practicing in your back yard.  SIG sent me a MPX and P250 (along with an assortment of their pellet targets) to review.

Fighter Design Combat K9 Cobra Harness

K9 Cobra Harness

Most specialty units within the law enforcement community have one common problem. There just isn’t enough funding to get people equipped with the best gear out there. Whether it’s a budget issue or maybe the supervisors don’t see the need for these high-ticket items. Needless to say, some of us end up purchasing our own gear to use at work. If you’re anything like me, I’m into the newest and shiniest things out there. Some work great and some end up not being too useful. Either way, if you need something, purchasing it yourself could save you a ton of headaches.


Rifle training class with KR Training and Sheepdog Solutions.

On  Sunday, January 31 I will be attended the Beyond the Basics rifle training class at KR Training with Karl Rhen and Aaron Marco,  lead instructor with Sheepdog Solutions.


Sig Silencer SRD762Ti-QD, a really great can…

I want to start out by saying that I really did not want to like this can for a variety of reasons.  I fully expected this can to be one of those that I used for a short time and returned it without a glowing review.  In my short time as a product reviewer, I have had few thing sent to me where my first impression changed to something that I liked….a lot.  This can was one of those things.  The silencer came packaged in a large plush box that is not just cardboard with all the documentation inside and in such a manner that lets me know some thought went into the packaging.  I’ve had a few things recently that were packaged nice such as the Ruger Precision Rifle, the Steiner T5Xi 5-25×56 and T5Xi 1-5x scopes.  But a silencer with some attention to detail is nice.  The can is ugly to me and the attention to the packaging was a nice touch, but how did it perform?


Griffin Armament Sportsman – introduction for long term review

In my search for lighter products that perform, I was looking for a can that is as light as possible and still performs well on multiple rifles. I looked at Ti cans and while there was a great deal of weight savings, they tend to be more expensive.  I came across the Silencerco Harvester and liked all the specs and weight, but it was direct thread only.  I wanted something with a lightweight option that would be able to use a QD mounting system that works on a family of mounts with lots of variety. Then I met Evan, owner of Griffin Armament.  Evan introduced me to the Sportsman and it’s ability to use a variety of Taper Mounts and comes in at a whopping 12.5 oz.  The Sportsman is as light as the Harvester but with more volume.  I purchased one and this an introduction for my long term review.


NeoMag, the best option concealed mag carry

As a Police Officer, I’ve been carrying a gun on and off duty for the last 7+ years.  I carried with my CHL prior to my career in Law Enforcement for several years.  A universal issue I’ve had is, where do I carry my spare magazine when I carry in plain cloths or off duty? A new product called NeoMag is just the solution I’ve been looking for. It is so simple, I can’t believe it took this long to make.
