I got set up as a dealer for Athlon Optics years ago, right after they went into business. Their earliest Midas sfp scopes weren't anything I felt very good about selling to friends & customers, so I...

I'd seen some information online concerning the improvements of the SV scopes over the SIII line, and got interested enough to purchase a SVSSED 10-50x60TD. I wish I had access to the SIII 10-50x60...

Oh I've seen far worse out of American-made rifles from both Remington & Winchester. Back in 1993, I bought a M70 Stealth in 223. Got it out of the box and found a ding on the muzzle that looked like...

If I'd thought I'd get CS as good as oldskeeter apparently got, I might've sent my 457 American in to be checked. It didn't shoot well at all to begin with, and putting several hundred rounds of...

I bought a case of WW Super-X 36gr HP copper-washed Hi Vel back in '91 or '92. I tried it in a Rem 541T that I bought in '93, and it shot bugholes - consistently. But by the time I'd found that out,...

1st 22RF target rifle I bought from CMP was a Rem 540x - was NIB, but I wasn't that impressed with it. If I hadn't just gotten married, I'd have probably kept it, but instead sold it and bought a H&R...

I sent the triggers out of a couple of CMP 52Ds off to Karl in 2005 to have him modify them. Seems like I paid him quite a bit less than $100 apiece for his work, and they were both well worth it....
