Herter's Select Grade Ammo

During the recent gun and ammo buying frenzy, I was on Cabela's website looking for any ammo. Keeping my fingers crossed, I searched for 9mm target rounds. Keep in mind these days finding 9mm or 5.56mm rounds are about as hard as finding the lost civilization of Atlantis.  I was hopeful I could find something other than jacketed hollow points....

Gun Action Camera: Contour+2

It's been a long time coming, but I finally broke down and bought a cool action camera for the range and general shooting. I did some research and came to the conclusion, the  Contour+2 action camera was for me. The best camera for my purpose, mostly shooting, had to be lightweight, low-profile, easy to mount to Picatinny rails, and HD capable. The Contour+2 has that and then some.

World's Finest Case Trimmer

Anything that helps make your life easier when it comes to reloading is worth looking into, especially when it comes to case prep. Not too long ago, a friend of mine purchased a trimming tool called the World's Finest Trimmer (WFT) made by Little Crow Gunworks. It's used to trim resized cases and do it quickly and consistently over many other manual options. On top of that, it's powered by your drill. I had to get my hands on one and see for myself.

Truglo Fiber Optic Sights for Glock

A great upgrade to the already great gun is a set of TruGlo fiber optic sights. Fiber optic sights are a useful add-on that helps draw the eye to the sights for accurate shot placement by focusing light into a single round point. What's better than fiber optic sights alone is combining them with self-illuminating tritium, the same stuff in military equipment used in low light conditions.

Book Review: Collision Course

I was in the Exchange the other day checking out gun magazines--the periodicals--not the ammo feeding devices and the small book section. There was a paperback titled Collision Course by David Crawford. It had another label on the cover, "A Novel of Survival." I never heard of the author but apparently he wrote another that preceded this title called Lights Out.

Glock 40 S&W Barrel Conversions

9mm, 357 Sig, and 40 S&W
Having the diversity of calibers and barrel configurations for the AR-15 rifle makes it an excellent rifle that can be employed to take a variety of creatures. Similarly, some Glock pistols support different calibers, too. Glocks chambered in .40 S&W can reliably shoot both .357 Sig and 9mm ammunition. It's a great day when you have a gun that can shoot more than one caliber.
