Episode 1: First Trip to the Range
For many women a public range can actually be the one barrier to picking up a gun, simply because they don’t know what to expect. Join host Natalie Foster (@natalietweets or @girlsguidetoguns) as she explains how to make a first timer’s trip to the range educational, stress-free and FUN!
One of the most exciting things to come out of this year’s NRA Annual Meeting was this video, reminding us all why we believe in our 2nd Amendment rights. Reminding us of the sheepdogs who watch over our neighborhoods, our cities, and our country. It’s time to believe in the good guys again. We are the 5 million men and women of the National Rifle Association of America. Join us: http://www.JoinNRAnow.org/
I am going to update this page as we have more videos for comparison, so check back often. We tested the tracking of several scopes using our proprietary scope testing mount and below you will find the videos for each separate scope tested. Also, these videos are a great way to get a genuine look through the reticles of these scopes. If you are interested in testing your own scope, CLICK HERE for the test set-up directions.
Leupold Mark 6 3-18x
Leupold Mk4 6.5-20x
Bushnell Elite Tactical XRS 4.5-30x
It has been quite a while since the last major speech by NRA’s President, Wayne LaPierre. He will speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC 2014) TODAY, March 6, beginning at 2:30 p.m. EST. The coming year will bring great political change and as gun owners and 2nd Amendment supporters, we need to keep abreast of the political landscape and what the NRA’s perspective is moving forward. You will find his speech here and will be able to stream it live below, please bookmark this link and set a reminder. Our gun rights are in jeopardy, and we will only prevail if we remain united!
Darcie Neville and Darnetha Elmore both served in the military prior to their careers at BLACKHAWK!. Their active-duty experiences have made their work producing supplies for military and law enforcement even more meaningful.
I am processing all the footage and information I covered this week, and if you are interested in Long Range Optics — I have a LOT of information for you that I will get up here as fast as I can. I just want to write this post to give you a taste of what I saw.
I have “First Look” video and photos with key features on all of the following scopes (in no particular order):
1. Tangent Theta (Mod TT525P)
2. Nightforce B.E.A.S.T
3. Leupold Mk 8
4. 2014 Vortex Razor
5. March-F 3-24×52
6. Steiner Military 5-25×56 mm
7. Schmidt & Bender PMII PSR
8. Bushnell ERS 3.5-21x 50mm
9. Kahles K 624i
It was really interesting being able to compare these scopes within a day or two of each other, having the feel of the turrets, the ergonomics, the look of the glass and reticles so fresh in mind. A couple of the companies have already agreed to send me T&E products and I will be working on requests for more so that I can get full blown reviews on all these scopes published for you.
Also, I have so much other long range info to discuss, Surgeon Rifles, Ashbury Precision Ordnance’s ASW 338 Lapua, Accuracy International’s new AT and AX, among others. So, please check back in the coming days!
Empowering is the key word for the dinner I attended last evening, celebrating women in the firearms industry. I had the opportunity to assist Nikki Turpeaux from Archangel Tactical in conducting interviews of all the sponsors of the event for the Firearms Radio Network. I met so many amazing, smart, beautiful, second amendment supporting women. Among the ladies I had a chance to talk to were Natalie Foster from Girls Guide to Guns and Athena from Gun Goddess, I have been a fan of both of them for a very long time. The event was hosted by Jacquelyn Kelly, owner of Armed in Heels and Britney Starr, owner of Starr & Bodill African Safaris.
These ladies were a slice of each piece of the industry, instructors, competitors, bloggers and commentators, CEOs, you name it – they were there. Women are laced throughout the history of firearms, they are powerful here in the present, and they are THE FUTURE of the industry as a whole. They are the key to maintaining our Second Amendment rights.
A big thank you to Britney and Jacquelyn for hosting such a fabulous event!
