Never Stop Learning.

Never Stop Growing.

Nikon P900 Camera – phenomenal, for the money.

A handheld camera with an 83x zoom built in? Yes. That appeals. But can it live up to the hype?

So Far...

The Bloke was essentially started as a way to document my experiments and learning. Along the way, a couple of people joined me in sharing their experiences. The goal is to continue to add useful, relevant information of benefit to both the weekend warriors and seasoned pros.

I have spent/wasted/lost enough money over the years trying different gear and systems, feel free to learn from my mistakes!

Safety Glasses for Shooting

While hearing protection is a no-brainer when shooting on a range, more and more places are also requiring eye-protection. What should you be looking for in safety glasses for shooting?

The VRTBR T2 Base Layer – modern thermals.

First, starting from the inside out, the next to skin thermal layer – designated the T2 Base Layer in the VRTBR system.

Precision Nutrition for Hunters and Shooters

First of all – I have to say, I am not a nutritional expert, nor qualified to dispense nutritional advice. Consult an expert, etc, etc, etc…

VRTBR – Premium Outdoors Clothing from the Nordics.

Does a company from Denmark offer up some of the best hunting gear in the world? How will it work in NZ? Are asymmetrical zippers the latest trend…

Lightweight, supportive boots. Lowa Z-8S GTX

Boots. One of the most important equipment decisions you can make.

The Last Stand

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.

Hardcore Hardware’s Tac Pen

They had me with.. “we have incorporated a pointed tip for sensitive investigative work”

UF PRO Striker HT Combat Pants

The UFO Pro is my new go-to shooting pant. Tough, comfortable with all the pockets you could ever need. For a dedicated ‘field’ pant – they are going to be hard to beat.

Cactus Outdoor Trade Supertrousers – Superhero Pants!

The kind of pants Superman would wear, if he was doing some part-time work as a contractor on a worksite.

Scope Bite

Comments Off on Scope Bite

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.
