This was a really great set-up for knocking around the backcountry of Wyoming looking for prairie dogs and jackrabbits to shoot. The short, 16 inch carbine was perfect for on the vehicle, easily accurate for shots on dogs at 200 yards, and with the scope dialed up to 9x you could actually see prairie dogs out to 400 yards…although hitting them at that distance was a little tough.

FBI Shooting for Survival

I love these old training films. It feels like the guys who filmed Adam-12 made a PSA about the dangers of getting shot at. What is interesting to me is that the techniques in this video would work just fine today. Sure, they’re probably not the fastest and most effective ways to get bullets into badguys anymore, but I’d imagine that if you trained using these techniques on the reg, you’d be in good shape to win a gunfight.

Mossberg 930 SPX Tactical Review

Dropping another video review today; we have the Mossberg 930 SPX tactical on the range. I really enjoy shooting this gun; like most shotguns it provides a very rewarding sense of accomplishment. There’s something delightfully tactile about the “chunk-chunk-chunk” of sending 12 gauge downrange and feeling the gun drive back into your shoulder in recoil. It’s a primal feeling, right up there with the emotional reaction I have to hearing a V8 turn over.
