Mission First Tactical, LLC (MFT™), developer of select rifle/carbine accessories specifically for the military, law enforcement and civilian sport shooting markets, has created a unique strap specific to their recently released Battlelink™ Minimalist Stock: the NEMO Rapid Assault Team Strap (NRAT). The concept for the 8-feet of braided Paracord was produced for MFT by NEMO Arms, Inc., a Montana based weapon systems integrator comprised of former Army Rangers, Navy SEALs, CIA, FBI and Pentagon officials. The Paracord strap adds a minimal 0.50 ounce to the overall weight of the ultimate in lightweight stocks, the Battlelink™ Minimalist Stock. Total combined weight of stock and strap, is just over 6 ounces.
The NRAT strap benefits all shooters accustomed to “feel” of a full-width stock without compromising on function or weight. It is especially a benefit to ambidextrous shooters. The NRAT strap does not interfere with the use of any QD mounts…

For all of you headed further south!

Welcome back to another installment of our Outer Banks beach report.
I hope you had a fantastic Thanksgiving and got plenty of turkey to eat. The picture above was taken just south of Jennette’s Pier in Nags Head, North Carolina.
Despite the inclement weather throughout the United States over the past few days, the Outer Banks is looking good for the next 24 hours. High temperatures in the mid-50s later today – slight chance of rain (10%) this afternoon.
Wind gusts from the NE at 10 mph this morning, but that’s nothing out of the ordinary for Nags Head.
Not a whole lot of wave action this morning – small knee high waves breaking at Jennette’s Pier. It’s December, so water temperatures are a brisk 49 degrees today.
Hopefully we’ll see some improvement in surfing conditions over the next 24 hours, but I wouldn’t bother bearing…

This is another one of those touchy subjects with many. It often turns into “I can shoot farther than you” conversation that turns to arguments at times. Even worse when you start throwing in the talk about animal distances!
This is what it comes down to and it is as simple as this. Your maximum effective shooting distance is that distance in which you are comfortable and can consistently put your arrows in a group one after another repeatedly. For some this is 40 yards and for others it may be 90. Keep in mind this is not shooting at live targets during hunting conditions per say!!
“So what do you need to do to increase your maximum effective range?” It all comes down to one word…….PRACTICE! And then more practice, practice, and practice! Try not to use an excuse…

Who else thinks this is a huge step in muzzleloader development?!
Originally posted on Hunt Forever:
Traditions Performance Firearms recently introduced what is calls “the next innovation in muzzleloading”–the Vortek StrikerFire. The gun has been in development since 2008, and rifle takes in-line muzzleloaders to the next level by using an internal StrikerFire system. To cock the gun, simply slide the striker button forward until it locks and shoot! The system allows for faster locktime, the ability to mount your scope closer to the bore, and allows the gun to operate at an ultralight 6 1/4 pounds.
The recessed de-cocking button allows for quick and quiet de-cocking of the firearm. It is also equipped with an automatic de-cocking mechanism, so when the gun is broken open, it automatically de-cocks. The gun is additionally equipped with a trigger block safety and striker block safety.
The Vortek StrikerFire has a 28″ tapered, fluted Magnum Chromoly barrel, and a two-stage trigger set at 3 pounds for a crisp, clean-breaking…

Looks like a great marinade to try!

I’ve been using this marinade for a while now and it is KILLER. Some friends from the island of Molokai shared it with me. They use it a lot on their axis deer steaks for the grill. If any of you have ever had the opportunity to eat axis deer meat you know what a treat that can be. I’ve had all sorts of game meat and that is far and away the best game meat in my opinion. No need to try and hide any gamey off flavors, it’s just good meat. However, when combined with this marinade, it is simply delishhhhh!
This marinade will cover 4-5 pounds of steaks.1 cup Shoyu (soy sauce) 1 cup olive oil 1 bulb garlic 1 handful of rosemary leaves (no stems) 1/4 cup lemon juice 1/2 Tbspn black pepper Combine ingredients, soak steaks 6 hrs, and grill.
