Re: Desert Tactical Arms, In Salt Lake City, Utah

As far as the rounds going off right next to your face, it is much safer to have your face on the side of the bolt then directly behind it like on a conventional gun. A failure will cause the bolt to fly backwards and I'd rather a bolt in the shoulder then a bolt in the eyesocket any day. We actually had a customer who accidently put 96 grains of pistol powder in a lapua case and decided to test it for us.

It take him longer then 60 sec but he is explaining the process as he does it.

Let me know if any of the long range shooters or snipers have shot one?

Thanks for looking....
Excellent weapons.

I really don't see the point.
The "look" is pure function without consideration of looks.

That's what you end up with when you put function above all else.
