Over the weekend, I watched two shooters scope themselves – that is, the recoil of the firearm pushes the scope back into head, above the eyebrow – generally cutting the head open. Scope Bite looks nasty, but is easy to avoid.
A firearm and optics are only part of a system – you also need something to shoot through it! So, after a couple of days getting familiar with the lighter trigger through dryfire, it was time to make some noise.
By now, you will have likely realised I am as much about systems and workflows as I am about products themselves. Certain products lean themselves towards practical use, the mesh with my way of thinking and working – the Stone Glacier R2 330 is one such product.
The Ruger Precision Rifle’s Sexy European Cousin.
Exposed tactical turrets, solid build, nice optics, good price. What’s not to like about it?
The guys at Berretta NZ recently lent me a Burris XTR Riflescope to have a look at.

Boots. One of the most important equipment decisions you can make.
Target stands can often be cumbersome, heavy things that you just want to put out once and leave. However, if you want to be setting up ‘impromptu’ field shooting targets, something lighter, quick to setup and breakdown becomes a hell of an advantage.
