Still Falling

It is really interesting the feedback I get about my science fiction novel. Feedback about the guns.

The this is the book is set 600 years in the future and they still use projectile weapons. And the have good reason to use them. They are EMP resistant.

They are also closed bolt and use completely caseless ammo. One reader said, "Now that is Science Fiction!"

The future of firearms expands in Book 2: The Broken Cage where I introduce Frange Carbines. These are projectile weapons designed to be used on board space ships and will only fire frangible ammo.

Aimshot LASER

I recently obtained a new Green LASER from a great online retailer, Grab A Gun  ( Check out their new website. Lots of great deals currently!

This is a AimSHOP 8150 compact green LASER.

I love this little guy for several reasons.
  • It's very compact
  • Mounting flexibility
  • Adjustable aim point
  • BRIGHT green LASER
  • USB rechargable
The first gun I tried it on was my new 300 Blackout rig. The low profile and light weight was prefect for my new favorite rifle. It is so bright that it's easy for me to see even in daylight. It's flexible mount point system allowed me to attach it where rail space was tight.

Maybe my favorite thing about it is that it's rechargeable. It has a micro USB socket on the other side that you simply plug in and charge it up. No replacing expensive batteries!

I am reluctantly going to take it off the 300 Blackout so I can try it on my suppressed Glock 17. I hand mounted it on that gun briefly to see if it would clear the suppressor and it did, perfectly. I will be posting about that next week. I'll try not to gush like a little girl...

--I suspect I will end up with more that one of these!

300 Blackout SBR

The 300 Blackout Project is finally complete.

This rig is now tuned up exactly the way I wanted it. The sub-sonic 300 Blackout is the perfect round for suppressing. The huge can does not ruin the balance on this rig and it is so quiet.

Now I need a case or two of ammo.

--Zombies beware.

Bears in VA

Someone saw a black bear in my suburban neighborhood yesterday and now they are freaking out a bit. This is in addition to coyotes that have spread through the state, eating outdoor domesticated cats.

This has renewed the discussion and debate about hunting, or lack there of, in Virginia. My suppressed 300 Blackout is perfect for black bears!

--If you see a bear, don't hug it.

Yardsale Find

Last weekend I scored a Caldwell Steady Rest at a yard sale for $2.

You have to love a yard sale where the woman has no idea what it is she is selling.

"Make me an offer." she said.

When I looked in my wallet I had two $20s and two $1s. She saw me do this and when I said "$2"...


--This will be damn handy at ESS when I am sighting in my rifles at the 100 yard indoor range!

Computer Crash

Posting interrupt hast happened! My computer has died.   

I am posting this morning from my iPhone.

--Hopefully the damn thing will be fixed today.

Slept in Saturday

I have been super busy for the last four months.

This is the first Saturday morning in a long time that I slept in and got to sit and drink coffee in a quiet house.

I think I make go cruise some yard sales with the wife. I would enjoy buying some crap I don't need.

I may actually go to the range today, by my self for once.

I will probably shoot my suppressed Glock 9mm. As seen in the photo.

--Just for me!
