    I've posted some stuff previously on the SiOnyx Aurora Digital Night Vision, but I just posted a new Video on using the SiOnyx remotely as in streaming the image to your Smartphone or Tablet using it's built in WiFi connection. Normally I just use NV in the first person sense, but I have to...
  2. Off The Reservation
    It was 171 years (and one week) ago today that Louis Flobert applied for a patent for the first rimfire primed cartridge. It was basically (literally) a lead ball seated in a percussion cap. Soon came the 22 Long (which I wrote about here), and then the 22 LR that we all know and love. It's...

    A week or so ago I posted a link to a video review I did on the Leupold Tracker. It didn't take me long using it to realize that for those of us with imperfect vision (read: Older and Can't see Up-Close!) the Tracker Series of devices are difficult to use. Anyway so I decided to try and...

    Just posted a review on a device that a fair number of folks might find interesting, The Leupold Tracker is a handheld thermal imager for finding and tracking game that retails for around $750 for the most expensive model down to about $550 for the lower resolution version. The video is Long...

    Just posted another video on the Aurora, Had someone ask me if it would work in a PVS-14 Style "Skull Crusher", Long story short I tried it and wasn't quite happy with the results so I decided to try and do something about it and it actually worked out pretty well.. Anyway here's a link to the...

    Just posted a new video on YouTube, I did side by side comparisons of all the the major generations of Night Vision compared as "apples to apples" as I could along with a couple of tabletop sessions (one for Thermal & Digital and another for Tube type NV) with a lot of info most videos and...

    I've been playing around and just finished another Night Vision comparison review on YouTube and figured I'd share it here too.. This one is Between two "budget" NV Scopes, the Firefield NVRS which is an traditional commercial Gen 1 scope, and the Sightmark Photon RT which is a Digitial scope...

    Just wanted to share... Just posted a video comparing a Thermal Scope to a Gen 3 Clip-On in front of a 3x Prism scope at 100, 200 and 300 yards. The equipment used was a FLIR PTS-233 Thermosight Pro (1.5x, 12 degree FOV, with 340x356 Boson Sensor), and a slightly older / like new Armasight...
  10. Deer Hunting
    NRA’s June 2018 issue of “American Hunter” magazine included an article about the decline in hunting (net loss of 2.2 million hunters 2011 to 2016). The article quoted several state agencies lamenting how the numbers are dropping, especially for Millennials, and the programs they’re...

  12. Big Game Hunting
    I've never taken an animal with black powder, but I've been with people when they have. Some folks opt for store bought conical bullets. Some use a cast ball. I plan on using cast Lee REAL bullets in my inline. I haven't seen much of a difference in the animals hit with a ball vs a conical...
