[SHOT 2019] Marathon Targets Autonomous Robotic Target System

If you’ve done any sort of square-range MIL/LE firearms qualifications, you know that most courses of fire are geared towards weapons familiarization and liability control over teaching actual tactics. Punching static paper targets on the same range, quarter after quarter does little to prepare a shooter for adverse situations, let alone an actual battlefield. At Sig […] Read More … The post [SHOT 2019] Marathon Targets Autonomous Robotic Target System appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

Changes at Kobo - Kobo WiFi dropped +

I just got a couple emails from Kobo. One told me that my Kobo WiFi will not be supported after February 28th and that I won't be able to connect to the Kobo eBookstore using it. (Also no updates, but I don't think there has an update for the Kobo WiFi for a while anyhow.) Not a big a deal on this one. The other email told me that my Kobo Mini would have a mandatory update (also by February 28th). The line that bothered me in that email was this... "Without this update, your Kobo Mini eReader wi...

Kindle Oasis Brightness Difference

Today I received my second Kindle Oasis from Amazon (new in the box) and am not happy at all about the brightness. The Oasis on the left is the new one and on the right my older one and they are both turned up to 24. Quite a difference in brightness. The new one is not near as bright and as you can has a yellowish tinge. The older one on the right is much whiter thus brighter. I'm not at all happy about this. Any ideas on what's going on? Thanks.

A Survey of Pro-Second Amendment Groups

A Survey of Pro-Second Amendment Groups United States of America – -(AmmoLand.com)- One thing that often causes hot debates is the question of which pro-Second Amendment group to support. Should Second Amendment supporters go with the National Rifle Association, which has been around for nearly 150 years? How about Gun Owners of America, and its famous “No Compromise” policy? What about the Second Amendment Foundation, responsible for a number of legal victories? Believe it or not, there are ...

Normal People ~ Sally Rooney

I'll be honest and say that I was all set not to like this book.... Don't ask me to explain it beyond the hype, the wall-to-wall adulation everywhere, the 'new voice for the millenials' tag lines (which frankly made me feel a bit ancient and out of touch) and the fact that my Reading Friend and I had set against it from the off. In her defence I have to say Sally Rooney always sounds slightly bemused by it all when interviewed, maybe even faintly uncomfortable and embarrassed by what (to me) mu...

Terrorise other beachgoers with the Beach Behemoth, a 12-foot beach ball

The Beach Behemoth is a 12-foot beach ball. Perhaps you think that this is a mere toy, one of those ultimately trivial impulse buys of no permanence beyond momentary amusement. This is because you have not read the buyer reviews at Amazon. Reid Hamlin writes: We took this ball to the beach and after close to 2 hours to pump it up, we pushed it around for about 10 fun filled minutes. That was when the wind picked it up and sent it huddling down the beach at about 40 knots. It destroyed everythi...

Providence Non Semi-Automatic Arizona -(Ammoland.com)- Prior to SHOT  Show2019, Franklin Armory made a bit of a splash by releasing information about a prototype, magazine fed pistol that was non-Semi-Automatic, but which looked very much like a Semi-Automatic.

MFT here to stay?

I don't necessarily disagree with his points, even though between October when he recorded this, and today, Olympus announced the OM-D E-M1X. The M1X is the first pro-grade MFT body to ape the CaNikon 1D/Dx style. with a built-in vertical grip & dual batteries, and has feature sets that tilt it heavily toward sports/action photographers and nature photogs.
