Re: Rapid-fire fun with a CZ bolt action.

OK, so with this type of shooting, having a magazine with more than 5 rounds helps, right? Does it matter if the rifle is standard or hunter class? I don't remember reading previous replies if it has to be a CZ or bolt action. I would probably use a supped up 10/22 for this type of fun since time is...

Re: Weaver T-24 close focus?

I have one and it is great! Have you put it on the FX3 yet? Yes. I used it yesterday for dry firing training. I need to dry fire for several hours a day if I hope to catch up to your scores. Unfortunately I don"t have that kind of time. I am staying at work late so I can study for the Professional ...

Re: Android Silhouette Spotting App

I saw two guys using a prototype app a couple of years ago. One guy looked through scope/binoculars then tapped the cell phone where the bullet strike was. The shooter looked down at a tablet with the hit and previous hits were recorded. Been waiting for this one to hit the market. Looked like a us...

Hey David,

During this years clinic up at Raton, do you feel that your hold was improved? Did the experts tell you anything you needed to improve your hold?

Re: How many shoot with a variable and how many with a fixed power scope

I am surprised I got anything with my wobble! This is like learning how to shoot all over again! BTW: I put the 12x on my Remington 700 in .308 and got it sighted in for 200 yrs. Any idea how much moa I need to dial in to go after the white buffalo at The Whittington Center? You may need to work on...

For the record I like women's breasts so I don't mind a color that helps women's breasts by bringing awareness to a horrible disease.
c'mon dude, quit humbling yourself. You know you have man breasts... =))
