45 ACP Loads using Muzzleloader sabots

As documented in this video, I experimented with loading .38 caliber bullets into 45ACP shells using injection-molded nylon sabots from MMP Sabots, and compared them to my previous saboted 45ACP rounds that used 3D printed sabots. TheIdahoanShowIdaho was one of the last continental US states to be settled and, more so than some parts of […]

Optics Speed Comparrison

I felt like the results of my zones-of-accuracy tests were a little inconclusive, especially regarding the relative speed of different optics at close range, so I set this test up to try and get a better comparison of target acquisition time between a red-dot, traditional scope, LPVO, and forward-mounted scout scope. TheIdahoanShowIdaho was one of […]

Zones of Accuracy Speed Test Follow-Up: LPVO

This was an addendum to my speed test of different optics on a course of both close and distant targets, where I tested an LPVO and compared the results to my previous test of other optics.

Zones of Accuracy part 2: speed test

This was the follow-up to my experiment with “zones of accuracy,” where I actually tried running different guns/optics on the clock for a course with targets at different distances. I tested a red-dot, regular scope, and forward-mounted scout scope. TheIdahoanShowIdaho was one of the last continental US states to be settled and, more so than […]

Measuring Practical Accuracy

I did some comparative testing to get an idea of what factors affect practical accuracy the most. I’m hoping other people will post similar tests, so we can compare multiple data points.

Shotgun vs. Steel-Toe Boots

I recently retired another pair of steel-toe boots, and, as is my custom, decided to give them a ballistic send-off. I’ve shot these with a variety of handgun and rifle rounds in previous videos, so this time I decided to try some shotgun rounds. TheIdahoanShowIdaho was one of the last continental US states to be […]

Shooting Steel-Toe Boots, Part 2

I guess I’m developing a tradition–every time I throw away a pair of steel toe boots, I first shoot them to see what the steel toe will stop. In my first test, a couple years ago, I found that they would stop .22 LR and 9mm, but not .44 mag (all fired from pistols). In […]

Reality Check on Electric Coil Guns

There’s been a lot of hype surrounding the coil guns marketed by ArcFlash Labs. Granted, the electronic “guns” they make right now are pretty anemic, but some people think it’s just a matter of time before they catch up to and then surpass the performance of conventional firearms. I did some basic energy delivery calculations […]
