I got a ping from the Book Face thing last night that someone mentioned me in a comment. I rarely even open the Book Face, but I went to check it out anyway because I’m vain. Someone was talking about one of their rifle outings and how good their grouping was. They knew this because they used my Shot Group Analyzer, which I promptly thought “That’s still around???” Which is odd because every here and there I see it on the Interweb Tubes. I see screenshots of people’s targets with my graphics...

I’ve been meaning to hop into this discussion because it has been bugging me like that piece of popcorn that always seems to get caught at the back of your throat. A few days ago, Chance reviewed the Crimson Trace Lightguard and of course, mall-ninjas came out of the woodwork to harp on how a light gives away your tactical element of surprise during a home invasion. Caleb did a pretty good dissection of the general stupidity here I see comments like this all the time, and they drive me up...

A while back I reviewed the Smith & Wesson M&P 40 and on the third or fourth shot, managed to shatter the round, plastic insert in the front sight. Total fluke, I’m sure, and it didn’t really bother me mostly because it was a bright day anyway so the black post was easy enough to see and I had seen plenty of things on the Interweb Tubes that illustrated how to fill in the front post with paints. I made it to a craft store last Friday and took a good 30 minutes to find the Tester’s...

If it weren’t for the overly complicated and expensive rectal exam you have to get, I’d have a suppressor. The damned things should be $100 at most but with the red tape and tax stamps, it’s ridiculous the cost of protecting one’s hearing. However… I don’t understand the desire to create a subsonic rifle round specifically so it can be suppressed. In the world of firearms, velocity is king. I have a rifle so the little bb has a lot of time to get up to speed. Slowing it down intentionally so...

First and foremost – Fully automatic 10mm Glock. I may be talking to my doctor in 4 hours if you get my drift. Second, can’t own this here in the states because we’re free people and free people are only free when there’s hundreds of thousands of laws restricting them from doing what they want. Third, let’s talk about full auto handguns. That guy looks around my size-ish. Notice how maybe his first shot would have hit its target but the following 14 or 15 actually post more danger to low...

Thanks to all the input I’ve gotten, I’ve released Shot Group Analyzer into Beta You can now set the 1” scale, print, and save your image. I also made it a bit prettier to look at. Known bugs at this time are Scaling widget can go outside of screen bounds, causing a bit of mischief (you may need to refresh the page if you go crazy with it) Printing does not fill the page Help is non-existent Standard Deviation was removed due to complete lack of usefulness in the way I had...
