Robinson XCR-L Review

Note: Newer versions of the Robinson Armament XCR-L use a lighter forend with keymod slots. The one pictured here is the older version. What if you designed a rifle like an AR15, but with easier takedown, piston driven action, swappable caliber conversions, and better ergonomics? Add in the capacity for a folding stock, adjustable gas […]

18650 Batteries compared with other batteries

18650 Batteries

I mention 18650 batteries so often in my headlamp and flashlight reviews, that I thought I’d do a dedicated article on 18650 batteries. 18650 batteries are rechargeable lithium ion cells used in laptop power packs, Tesla cars, high powered vapes, electric bikes, heated jackets, high power laser pointers, flashlights, headlamps, and many other battery applications. Realistically, […]

Wyvern Heated Jacket Review

Cold Weather Jackets My normal setup for hunting season is to layer up. Base layer, mid layer, maybe a sweater if it’s really cold, and then a choice between light, medium and heavy duty jackets. If you’re going to head into the back country, you’ll likely need a backpack to store layers and/or a premium […]

Living in Canada, we didn’t really have much for availability in Primary Arms scopes up until recently when CTC Supplies started carrying them. And when I decided to upgrade my 3 gun AR15 barrel, I […]

Sig Kilo 2000 Review

5 years ago, when I bought my ~$350 Bushnell Sport 600, there was a clear line in the sand between pricier Leica rangefinders at $1000+ and the budget models at $500 or less. Budget rangefinders weren’t nearly reliable enough to use for long range hunting, while using them for precision long range shooting was impossible without large reflective […]

BRS-99 Review

Here in Canada, it can be surprising what kind of firearms are available. When it comes to submachine guns, we can’t own any because full auto firearms are prohibited, but we can own some close relatives. And while we can own pistol caliber carbines like the Kel Tec Sub 2000, Suomi M31, or JR Carbine, some people […]
