    The Point: Arrowhead Pics and Discussion

    Incredible.Personally,I don´t like this "gadget".I can not say if there will be a market for this thing,but I think that the serious bowhunter won´t try it.I hope so. The cartridge seems to be a .357.How can this cartridge be effective without using a barrel?The pressure will be minimal and...

    Accu Riser 6000 Cheek Pad

    I always have thought that a good red-dot,holographic or similar sight device can be a good advantage when making quick shoots on moving targets with a shotgun.Tactically speaking I think it is called fast target adquisition. When I installed Eotech sight in my Mossberg 500,I had problems to...

    The Point: Arrowhead Pics and Discussion

    Paul,it is not easy to compare bullets with arrows.Speaking of energy and velocity the difference between both is enormous but when we take into account the proyectile weight and the design of it the arrow is capable of making a massive wound channel.Also a bullet can do it ,but the effects of...

    Here is one of my hunting knives.It is a Muela manufactured knife with a 9 1/2 inches blade ,stag handle from red deer and leather sheath.About the steel it is very similar to 440 B or 440 C.

    LES,I have one of this .It is a Japanese HAKO Panorama MK-IV Bed 40 red dot.Actually I have it installed in a Mossberg 695 for hunting.If you remove the cover the unit will turn on.But you need a little amount of light and the sensor will adjust the dot size. Very important to me:you can change...

    ghost ring sights or other sights?

    Itsricmo,thanks for the advice , ;) .The barrel mount is not expensive and I can use it to mount laser or flashlight on barrel.If I buy the flip-up sights I wouldn´t like not to use them. There is another good option:go to LPA ghost ring system.They make quality sights for different guns. BAR11W...
