Gear Updates: New Compressor (for me), my perfect shooting styx,and updating my cameras

The Omega Compressor was the first bit of new gear I’ve been using….. and to be honest I don’t know how I’ve survived without it! Well yes I do, with 6 carbon fiber tanks I’d have to drive 40 minutes to have filled, and I never seemed to be able to get to the paintball … Continue reading »

Prepping the Renegade for Hunting Season!

I spent the weekend shooting the Daystate Renegade, the second bullpup design out of this great airgun manufacturing powerhouse. The first was the Daystate Pulsar, a beautiful and technology packed bullpup.

Out with the Twin Master … the What?

I was going through the gun safe getting ready for a hunt in Texas (that’s where I am writing this from), and came across a gun case that had lost it’s label.

Grand Slam of North American Squirrel

I love just being out hunting, but think that at the same time there is something cool about a quest …. giving yourself a challenge or a goal, which to my way of thinking enriches the experience.
