Exploding Rifle Targets – Slow Motion Video – FedLine Cisco Router

Friday, July 9th, 2010

Did you see the video where I destroyed the FedLine Cisco Router with the Exploding Rifle Targets?

Well, a few folks asked if I could slow down the explosion part of the video.  So, after figuring out the process, we got it done.

Here’s the slow motion clip of the explosion.

You can bet there will be more to come!

Savage .17 HMR – BSA Sweet 17 3-12 x 40 Rifle Scope (on sale)

Wednesday, July 7th, 2010

It’s time to build up a new rifle to share with my kids (uh, yeah honey, it’s for the kids :>).

I’m waiting for the Savage .17 HMR to go on sale at my local stores or Cabelas.   I picked the Savage .17 HMR due to the cost/performance/accuracy and overall value.  It’s really hard to beat.

I found the BSA Sweet 17  3-12 x 40 scope on sale at Cabelas online for $49.95 (hurry – there’s still some left). This scope is normally $129 – $149. I know the BSA Sweet 17 isn’t preferred by a few marksmen but I have found it to be very adequate for 100 – 150 yds for varmints.

I’ll keep this rig in my truck when traveling around the back roads in rural Nebraska. There’s plenty of opportunities here, especially in the West.

Oh – gotta put a camera mount on it, too. I wanna share the fun through recording videos (only the hits, of course!).

Stay tuned….I’ll post the build up as I go.

Shoot straight – stay safe.

Independence Day Fun: Exploding Rifle Targets

Tuesday, July 6th, 2010

We had a Cisco network router we needed to destroy so we acquired some Exploding Rifle Targets and went to the range.  This is too much fun….
