    Blue thread loctite on scope rings or not

    I recently went out for some shooting and found to my displeasure that all 6 screws holding the picatinny base to the action were loose. This wasn't my rifle but I would probably throw some loc-tite on these myself. The MDT scope rings I use say they don't need loc-tite if torqued down...

    Shooting Safely on Public Lands

    Since I've never seen many resources for public land shooting I thought it might be a decent idea to write about how ranges are templated. It's something I learned in the military but can also apply to public land use for long range shooting, matches (which I know some guys that do this) or even...

    Oryx Chassis Giveaway

    Good question! We do have SA models but if you're looking for a LA left hand the best is to leave us a request at the top left of the page. We don't currently have any plans for one at the moment that I know of. If we can a bunch of requests then adding a LA LH inlet would be looked at...

    Need advice on proper shooting style for LRH.

    I keep both eyes open for quick target acquisition and situational awareness. Sometimes the left eye closes before the shot if I feel the need.

    What is your average hunting shot distance?

    If I take the average of all my "hunting" shots, I'm going to be hitting about 16.8m. I shoot a lot more grouse up close than I do anything else. I'm not complaining though.

    Packable poncho

    Snugpak makes a really nice ponch that fits over a pack. If you're walking through the bush in the rain though then waterproof jackets and pants are the way to go. Water resistant clothing only lasts for so long and ponchos get all kinds of snags on stuff.

    Who makes warm boots?

    I've used Redwing boots on the oil rigs in Alberta and they're great down to -20C (-4F). More moving around there though than sitting. I've been wanting to try the Irish Setters but they come with a bit of a price tag. Alternatively, I don't know if you can find them in your area but a few...

    compass use

    I use the Garmin inreach Explorer +. It's nice having the security blanket of the SOS function, but also being able to text people that I need a ride incase my truck breaks down deep in the bush which is more likely than a catastrophic medical emergency.
