Early Prototype of Futuristic Gunsight

This is a video I made describing my vision of the future of gunsights and presenting an initial proof-of-concept prototype that I put together. TheIdahoanShowIdaho was one of the last continental US states to be settled and, more so than some parts of the US, the culture of Idaho still retains a frontier spirit of […]

US Optics TS-20X Review: Tier 1 mechanical precision and optical clarity; half the price.

Today we're looking at the TS-20X, a scope that can function in either the DMR role or as a long range scope. Its wide 2.5-20x zoom range means you can deal with everything at unreasonably close or unreasonably far distances, especially when you add in the whopping 32 MRAD of elevation adjustment. Depending on which reticle you choose, you can make all of your adjustments without touching a turret, or you can use the turrets to dial precisely and reliably to the exact spot you want. Both work, and I tested both at the range with my 6.5 Creedmoor Savage 12FV.

Spotting scopes are abundant these days and there isn't any reason to go out and spend a lot of money on one for your use. Shop around and save your money for loading components. A cheaper scope may have all the features you need.

It turns out the specs on OpticsPlanet were wrong, and the Nikko Stirling NSLX-2 is basically a piece of junk. […]

Types of Firearms Optics

Another ‘How-to’ video originally produced when I was still involved with the firearms industry.  This was designed to provide a very high-level overview to new, or aspiring gun owners on the different styles of optics available and what each is suited for.  Tragically shot in the age of standard definition!
