In my last blog story, I covered getting my Kalibrgun Cricket Air Rifle in .25 caliber zeroed at 65 yards in some testy winds. Yesterday, I had a chance to get out and explore some, new to me, prairie dog country. I took along my Cricket rifle, but the main focus of the day would […]
The Franklin Armory F17-L in .17 Winchester Super Magnum has a lot of firsts. It is the first semi-automatic rifle in .17WSM now available to the general public. It is the first gas piston system, AR15 rimfire rifle (built in partnership between Franklin Armory and Osprey Defense). Lastly, it is the first AR15, chambered in […]
**Update** Unfortunately, due to new regulations passed by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, California residents are no longer allowed to hold “contest hunts” on predators. This vote took place on Wednesday, with the results taking affect immediately, so the Varminter Predator Hunt Picture Contest ended the moment the vote was cast. Thanks for […]
When it comes to varmints, Texas offers tons of opportunities to those who can find property to hunt. Varmint hunters are generally welcomed by landowners, so I have found it easier to gain access when they know I only want to target the critters that don’t have horns or tusks. This was the case during […]
Kalibrgun Cricket Airguns have become hugely popular in the airgun community, with their compact Cricket Bullpup rifles. What many folks don’t know, is that Kalibrgun has a full-size “hunting” rifle. I had a great time heading up to Northern Arizona to shoot some airguns with Cliff, who owns the VarmintAir Airgun Hunting Blog. We did […]
A shooting platform that is portable, allows for 360 degree motion, yet sturdy and comfortable enough to sit on for hours while shooting varmints? That’s the thought that went through my head as I wandered by the Idleback booth at the 2014 SHOT Show last January. My first glance of the chair lit up more […]
Hunting with a MSR can be very rewarding when you make a shot; especially a long or tough one. However, if you’re using your stock trigger, you may get some frustrating results. This is likely due to the nature of the GI trigger that is installed in the majority of factory built rifles. These are […]
Holy grails are few are far between in the varmint hunting community. We don’t have scoring methods and clubs to measure how successful our hunts are. Instead, we gauge our success on factors that matter only to us. To some, it is sheer numbers of animals taken and to others it is the sum total […]
Back in the summer of 2013, Aero Precision released their Ultralight scope mount. We were lucky enough to get our hands on this mount to use on our main varmint/hunting AR. Overall we were very pleased with the unit, which offers a lot of value. However, there were some that were not happy that you […]
The FX Boss .30 Caliber Airgun is one of a new breed of commercial big-bore airguns that are filling an ever-widening niche for serious airgunners. When I got access to one, I jumped at the chance to take it into the field and video some kills. However, a little time shooting some pellets at some […]
