TriggrCon 2017: Freedom Munitions and X-Treme Bullets

Have you ever discovered a company in your “backyard” that you had no idea was so close? At TriggrCon 2017 I met Jansen Jones from Freedom Munitions, and learned that they were in driving distance from where I am located in Washington. Not only that, but Jansen told me all about HMT (Howell Munitions & […]

TriggrCon 2017: KRISS Vector and Defiance DMK-22

Like something out of a dream- that’s the best way I can explain the Industry Range Day at TriggrCon 2017. Sensory overload, too much to see and experience (for one day), and fun on another scale. One such highlight during the event was visiting the KRISS booth. There I saw something I’d only seen online: […]

Budget Precision .223: LEE Deluxe Challenger Kit Unboxing and Setup

Have you ever taken a “leap” hoping that things would work out, and then they did? That’s how this project (Budget Precision .223) has turned out so far. Would the TC Compass shoot as good as my other one in .308 Winchester? Could this scope live up to the reviews I read on Amazon? Yes. […]

TriggrCon 2017: In-Motion Targets and Rifle Sticks

The shooting sports industry and community is a small world! While at TriggrCon 2017, I saw quite a few familiar local companies, one of which was In-Motion Targets. Talking with the guys at the In-Motion booth, we realized quickly that we knew some of the same people in the PNW PRS and general shooting circles. […]

Let There Be Light: KMS Squared UFO Press Light Kit

I’ve been accused of overkill when it comes to lighting. Yes, I like a LOT of light- it makes almost any job in the shop easier and more enjoyable (even if it’s just looking for that open end wrench you can’t find). When it comes to reloading ammunition proper lighting becomes a safety issue. Spotting […]

Ultimate Reloader Deal: 10% Off Forster Accessories at Inline Fabrication

If precision loading is your thing, you absolutely need to check out the FORSTER Co-Ax single-stage reloading press. I recently got this press setup, and have been using it for all kinds of things- I really like the amazing mechanical advantage (leverage) built into this press, and the quick-switch die arrangement is awesome. Check it […]

TriggrCon 2017: DesertTech Rifles and Interview

In the quest for an accurate 50 BMG rifle for an upcoming reloading and shooting series, I found out about the awesome HTI (Hard Target Interdiction) rifle system from a company called DesertTech. With many of the 50 BMG rifles out there shooting 1.5+ MOA, their sub-MOA HTI rifle was of immediate interest. When I […]

TriggrCon 2017: Hudson H9 and Cy Hudson Interview

Every once in a while you come across something and say- “wow, that was different!”. While at TriggrCon 2017, one of those moments for me was when I tried the all-new Hudson H9 at the Industry Range Day. Inspired by the most iconic pistol of all time- the M1911, this striker-fired pistol with two-stage trigger […]
