With 3 Gun season quickly approaching it is time to start practicing loading the shotgun. During a match, shotguns can be unloaded as fast as you can pull the trigger but loading them is a one shell at a time process. Practicing your loading technique can make a big difference in your overall time and score. Remington is now making Dummy Shotgun Shells that are to factory spec and have real shot in them so they feel the same as loading a live round.

Sun Devil Mfg. AR-15 Heavy-Walled Billet Receiver Review

Category : Competition, Rifles, Shooting Gear Review, Tactical

Comments: (5)

Many shooters are curious about the advantages of using a heavy-walled billet receiver for their AR-15 build. Accuracy, in a word, is the biggest advantage. Heavy-walled billet receivers are more rigid or stiff. A more rigid receiver will prevent excess movement and flex when a round is fired. It will also help reduce harmonics that are damaging to accuracy. The series of events before, during, and after a round is fired are more likely to be consistent with a rigid upper.

The M16/AR-15 platform’s original design was for military use and as such had every extra ounce removed to keep the gun lightweight. Regardless of its lightweight receiver, the M16/AR-15 came out inherently accurate.

EHP Digital Electronic Ear Plugs EHP-MC1 Review

Category : Competition, Handguns, Hunting, Shooting Gear Review

The EHP-MC1 is rated at 29 N.R.R which is superior to most large shooting muffs.

My thoughts were skeptical when I found that EHP (Electronic Hearing Protection) was making in ear digital electronic shooting plugs (EHP-MC1)  by hand in the USA for a very reasonable price. Putting my skepticism aside I ordered a pair and joined the ranks of those I’ve envied for years.  I have now shot 3 gun, IDPA matches, and a mountain lion (see pics below) using the EHP in-ear-canal digital plugs.

View the Video of John Paul talking about the new JPSCS below

Just when I’m convinced that innovation in the world of AR’s is cosmetic or limited to new finishes, JP Enterprises invents something revolutionary. I haven’t had a chance to test it yet but JP’s new JPSCS (Silent Captured Action Spring) is on my short list of things from the 2012 SHOT Show to try. John Paul tells me the silent action spring gets rid of all the mechanical feeling of the bolt moving in an AR. He described it as similar to shooting a bolt-action. JP rifles with the Low Mass Bolt and Buffer system are already pretty amazing. In fact, it’s  hard to believe that they could get any better; however, this JPSCS is not only supposed to improve on how  a mil
