Lucky Shot Bullet Shot Glass (Great Gift For Shooters)

I decided this year friends and coworkers would receive shooting related gifts despite their position on guns. I wanted them to all have something that reminds them of me, so after a bit of pondering it occurred to me most are drinkers of some form of alcohol. After a bit of browsing on Amazon I happened across Lucky Shot USA and their line of bullet embedded glasses. When I saw that many of the glasses featured 308 bullets I knew I had found the right gifts. They practically say 308 AR on them :). Anyhow my first purchase and the subject of this post is the .308 Bullet Shot Glasses. I bought a set of two shot glasses for my boss at the day job.

Modular Driven Technologies aka “MDT” is well know for being a leader on bolt action rifle chassis particularly their TAC21. MDT is also the rifle chassis provider for Brownells, Winchester, Weatherby and Mossberg to name a few. Many shooters may not realize that MDT also offers a skeletonized carbine stock that with proper buffer system hardware can also be used with the AR-15, AR-10 and 308 AR rifles (See the chart below). The MDT “SCS” is a great Magpul PRS alternative.

Gun Wall Art AK 47 | AR-15 Wall Art | FN FAL

I have a beautiful finished basement in my my home. It currently serves two purposes, the first being my photography studio the second purpose is a place to store stuff we have not unpacked since moving in two years ago. The little woman and I have always discussed turning the room into something more useful. Well last weekend my cousin gave me to leather recliners that naturally got stored in the basement. Well today it struck me, I’m going to turn the basement into a photo studio gun themed man cave. To that end my girl asked me what I want for Christmas. So I’m going to load her up with all kinds of shooting related gift item ideas to decorate my man cave. First up is wall art and this case a 60 inch wide by 23 inch high 5 panel canvas that features many classic firearms such as an AK 47, FN FAL, Daewoo DR 200, M16 and an assortment of old handguns.

Curbelo-Moulton Bill H.R.3999 Seeks to Ban Most Semi Automatic Rifles

Quote from Criterion Barrels “We typically don’t like to get political here at Criterion Barrels Inc., but as of late there have been some concerning legislative proposals that need to be immediately addressed. If you like firearms and possess a semiautomatic rifle, then this piece of proposed legislation involves you directly.

The website of Representative Carlos Curbelo’s (FL-26) recently announced that he “and Seth Moulton (MA-6) announced they are leading a perfectly bipartisan effort to introduce legislation to ban the manufacture, sale, and use of “bump stocks.” The Members hope to introduce and move this legislation as quickly as possible.

Moulton’s and Curbelo’s legislation would be structured in the Noah’s Ark style, meaning Members would have to sign on as a co-sponsor with a Member from the other Party. Currently twenty representatives have co-sponsored this bill.” “

The FAXON FIREARMS BIG GUNNER PROFILE 308 AR BARREL is a marriage of Faxon’s Government and Pencil profiles that gives balance of manageable weight and high accuracy potential. It has the Government taper from the barrel extension to the gas block, then transitions to a Pencil profile from the block to the muzzle. Keeping weight at the rear maximizes rigidity and resistance to heat distortion, while removing it up front moves the center of gravity to the rear, keeping your “308 AR” nicely maneuverable.

NIKON BLACK X1000 6x14x50SF 308 SCOPE

The NIKON BLACK X1000 6x14x50SF is part of a new line of mid-level priced Nikon riflescopes geared towards AR-15, 308 AR and Precision Rifle Shooters. When I saw the Nikon M-308 series 308 AR scopes going out of stock at the usual big name sources I had a suspicion there were new Nikon scopes on the horizon. The scope market is very competitive especially in the $399-$699 price range so it’s no big surprise I was right. Recently the Nikon Black X1000 Riflescopes became available for purchase. Nikon appears to be marketing their Black1000 scopes and Nikon Black scope mounts towards the “MSR” rifle shooter. The Nikon Black X1000 appear to be priced about $150 less expensive than the Vortex PST Gen II. This is a smart move in my opinion. Nikon also seems to be touting their warranty. Again Nikon is clearly targeting Vortex. These new Nikon scopes should be well received by 308 AR, AR-10 and AR308 shooters looking for affordable scopes.
