DIY Simple Dope Card Holder


A rifle mounted Dope Card Holder may seem like a very simple thing. It is, but it can make all the difference in the world on a timed stage. It prevents the shooter from having to break position to look at their target engagement data and allows you to keep your eye behind the scope.

A quality Dope Card Holder is not cheap. Some shooters may not be willing to take the leap without trying one. New shooters may just not have the cash to spend. We came up with a really cheap and easy way to get that Dope Card attached to your rifle.

Short Action Precision “Run n’ Gun” Bag Review

Rear bags come in an overwhelming variety of shapes and sizes. Some are simple. Some have a ton of features. It would be easy to crank out a quick review of something as simple as a shooting bag. However, to get a real feel for how a bag performs, takes time. I spend five months working with the new Short Action Precision “Run n’ Gun” bag. I really wanted to see if once the “new” wore off, I stuck with it or went back to one of my previous bags. After five months, it’s still the bag I reach for during most of my shooting sessions.

Ruger 10/22 Tactical Trainer (Part 2 do-over) Ruger BX-Trigger

BX-TriggerOne of the firs things we noticed when we started this project was how horrible the factory trigger on our 10/22 was. Not only was it very heavy for a light rifle, but when loading pressure the trigger would “creep” forward before eventually breaking. This is not a good situation for overall accuracy. The factory pull weight was close to six pounds. This makes it very difficult to keep precise sight alignment on a light weight rifle. The angle of the wrist portion of the stock also made it extremely difficult to get a “straight to the rear” pull. I knew that in order to get any meaningful results from our modifications, we would need to address the trigger. Continue reading Ruger 10/22 Tactical Trainer (Part 2 do-over) Ruger BX-Trigger
