I watched something interesting the other day (hope I have not already said this) but watched a guy kill a black bear, American Buffalo, an Eland and a Cape Buffalo. He was using a 50 caliber AIR RIFLE! He must have been a former Marine Sniper. One shot one kill.

Yeah I read about that. What I read said it was their most prized weapon. I also read that way back in the time of Napoleon any soldier caught with one was automatically executed.

Mike, donít quote me in that as my memory is a lot less reliable than it used to be. And I was just referring to that time period.

So I recently got a shot timer as that seems to be one of the primo ways to improve as a shooter. Been intersting for sure.

Yesturday I was out with 2 rifles...one with an Eotech and the other with a LPVO. While I was generally faster with the eotech I was very surprised to be faster with the lpvo transitioning from one target to another. I was stumped as to why. The eotech is on a smith and wesson lower and 14.5 BCM upper which I'm loving as my go to gun and the lpvo is on my saint edge...a light and fast gun with a much better trigger. You think it was a firearm difference?
