Most of us at some point or another have wished for a third or fourth arm. Nowhere is this as true as with firearms maintenance.
We just got a heads up on a new rifle scope coming from the folks at SWFA. The new SS 3-15×42 is based on the the previous fixed power designs. The resemblance to the 10x, 12x and 16x SS models is obvious.
Pricing is $699.95 and will be available for purchase April 25th!
Our T&E just arrived and we can’t wait to get it mounted up!
The BBT (big, brown, truck) graced us with its presence yesterday and left a box from Bushnell Outdoor Products. Inside was a brand spanking new 8-40x60m Lightweight Modular Spotting Scope. I was so excited that I broke out the camera and actually shot an unboxing video.
We don’t usually do “unboxings” because I am dubious of their value to the consumer. When I “unbox” something, it’s pretty obvious that I have little experience with that actually product. This isn’t really true with the LMSS.
We got a chance to play with the pre-production version of the LMSS at a Bushnell hosted event at Rockcastle Shooting Center in Park City, Ky. I have used several different “tactical spotters” from several different manufacturers. This was the first I have seen in awhile that actually got me exited. You can take a look at our previous comments about it from the Rockcastle shoot here.
As soon as we get some time behind it and a some shots through it, we will run a full review. Everything about this scope screams “quality” and we can’t wait to field it.

The sniper was such an effective tool in Iraq that the sniper’s tactical comeback in Afghanistan is being facilitated by the mounting concerns over the number of civilian casualties in Afghanistan caused by collateral damage from coalition air strikes. This has made the sniper the military’s most cost effective, discriminating fighting machine in the Global War on Terror.
