When creating instructional videos I often find times when explaining a concept just doesn’t do it justice. It would be much better if I could just show a student what I am talking about. The MINITS iWitness solves this problem. I can easily attach an iPhone to the back of a rifle or spotting scope and demonstrate concepts, scope reticles, bullet trace, etc.
Vision Pro Shop was kind enough to send one out to us to evaluate. We got a chance to try it out during the SWFA SS 3-15×42 range test. The iWitness kit held my iPhone 4s securely through a run at the gongs on our home range. A full review will be coming soon.
The hats went fast, but we still have a limited supply of our Pinup Girl Logo Patches. These are high quality PVC and come velcro backed ready to stick on your jacket or gear! At the time of this post we only have about 25 left. We don’t know when the next run will be. Don’t miss out!
We just got our hands on a new Leupold Tactical VX-R 3-9x40mm rifle scope. This looks to be a great option for a LE Sniper Rifle, DMR, SPR or even a hunting rifle. With mil turrets and a mil reticle, you get on target fast. The illuminated Firedot TMR reticle is a great option for low light use. We are looking forward to getting it on a rifle and putting it to use. Keep an eye out for our full review.
Have you ever needed to stuff your AR15 in the smallest case possible? Were you concerned about the terminal energy loss of going to a super short barrel? Does you agency require that you use a “direct impingement” AR platform? Wish you could just break your AR15 in half? Well now you can!
This nation of ours seems to suffer from what I would like to call “Clip Confusion”. I blame Hollywood first, Politicians Second and the Media as a whole last. Now I realize that I do count as part of that last group. Now is my chance to help fix the problem.
When I started my career in the field of arms, nomenclature (the proper names of things) was very important. In fact proper nomenclature could mean the difference between getting to eat or a whole lot of pain and suffering. You see Marine Corps Boot Camp is not tolerant of individuality. You don’t get to call things whatever you want because you think it is cool. You call them by the name the Corps assigned to them or you pay for it. This indoctrination is most likely the source of my ire about the “Clip Confusion”.

SWFA has now released their brand new 3-15x42mm rifle scope. This scope fits perfectly in the middle of their lineup. Priced at $699 it is less expensive than their 5-20x and 10xHD models, but stacked with more features than their bargain priced fixed magnification models.
The 3-15×42 borrows styling from the classic SWFA SS 10x fixed power rifle scope. You will find the same blocky turrets and fluted ocular housing. Personally I would have preferred the styling follow with the sleeker lines of the 5-20x50mm SS model, but the beauty of the 3-15x is in the function.
