It's another offering for the tactical sucker market.

One of my favorites is "tactical tape", sold for eight dollars a roll. - The funny part was, it was 89 cent a roll OD green surplus duct tape....

A Browning BAR Safari in .338 Winchester with BOSS would put that Blaser to shame. Buy an extra magazine for it, and it would reload significantly faster too - besides incidentally looking better by...

The 6.5-06 will feed a lot better.

The 6.5 WSSM lets you use a shorter action with shorter bolt-throw.

Better yet a 6.5 WSM... More power, it will feed well, and it works in a short action.

Extreme 'tactical' Stupidity

Today I got an ad from Brownells for a DPMS AR15 barrel...

An 11.5" barrel - with a 5.5" Flash Hider, so it will be legal.

Just making the...

I'd call Savage about that, or ask around on a forum specific to Savage firearms. My guess would be to use a steel rod that fits through the holes, but that's just a guess. If you have Kroil or some...

You can argue with stuff that you've made up, then pretended that I said - essentially arguing with yourself.

- Or you can take a shot at addressing what was actually said.

Good luck,...

I like the adapter that uses spin-on oil filters designed for large truck engines.

Shoot it once, and it's adapted to your caliber.

It don't cost no 2,000 bucks either. Really now, is anybody...

The story I get is that the Savage adjustable brake does not function as a tuner, like the BOSS system does. Instead, it allows you to turn the brake on or off. - A useful feature as not all hunting...

The thing is, the gun will need to be cleaned every time you use it, as soon as is reasonably possible. - Don't put it off.

I know the feeling of knowing that a scope is really necessary, but hating to put one on there. It was that way with a BLR and a Winchester 1885.

In the music world, there are "garage bands"...

The equivalent of this in the shooting world is the "garage gunsmith".

The Remington model 700 is the darling of the "garage gunsmith" set.
