Outdoors / Re: Thermal hog eradication video 7 down
« on: May 16, 2017, 06:30:29 PM »
Thank you! I've actually seen a video or two on YouTube when Lone Star Boars met up with the Military Arms guys and did a full auto night hunt. They killed some pigs and I'm sure it was a blast but I think they woulda had more dead hogs with semi auto.

Outdoors / Thermal hog eradication video 7 down
« on: May 15, 2017, 04:39:33 PM »
Got an invite to go down to Victoria, Tx to help eradicate some hogs that had been hitting the corn fields pretty hard. We started around 9:00 and wrapped it up around 3:00 am.  We drove around scanning fields out the window and stopped in a few places to call for a few minutes here and there. We got 6 confirmed kills on the first group. Then later in the night took out a single boar that is not in this video. 7 confirmed kills for the night.
Equipment used- 12.5" 6.8 SPC from Eric at Blackstonearms.com.  Reap-IR thermal sight from Cliff at ThirdCoastThermal.com recorded with the MDVR from Ultimate night vision.
Attached to the muzzle is the Sig Sauer 762 titanium QD suppressor from Silencershop.com

Outdoors / Video thermal hog eradication 14 down
« on: April 01, 2017, 06:55:44 PM »
Started the night with a coyote shot from about 100 yds. Spun around for a few seconds and fell over. Bullet entered behind shoulder and exited front of shoulder. That video didn't record (forgot to enable video mode on the Reap-ir) but it did remind me to enable video on the scope which allowed me to get the next 14 confirmed hog kills from this sounder on video.
Couple hours later driving/scanning I spotted "a couple" hogs.....
equipment used: 12.5" ARP upper in 6.8 SPCII from Eric at Blackstone Arms. Reap-IR thermal scope from Cliff at Third Coast Thermal. Sig Sauer 762 titanium QD suppressor from Silencer Shop. Helmet mounted PVS-14.

I didn't get it for 2/3 off. I got a good deal though. BeforeTrijicon bought Ir defense, they were $7500. Then they upped the price to $7900.  Cliff at Third Coast Thermal will give u a better deal if u tell him I sent you (Blake M in Houston).

I sent in my foxpro hellfire for warranty work last week. Waiting to get it back in good working order. For now it's just stink bait and a rabbit distress hand call

OOPS. :bangheadonwall:   :facepalm:  Well ya just made 2 coyotes smarter.   LOL.

Thats an awesome scope. Wish I had one.
I think when I looked those up they was about $2200 for the ones I seen.
 Little outta my budget range.
Ya my bad... the technology is too good for my own good! I don't think it'll happen again. I had recently added an adjustable gas block and suppressor and gotten it sighted in on another gun. Then I switched it back to the right reticle location. Then I was going to bring a friend and use the thermal on the other gun so I switched it back to the gun I had just sighted in. Then my friend bailed out and I forgot to switch it back to the gun I brought... if that makes sense.

Definitely not and ever were $2200. That would be by faaarrr the best thermal deal on the internet. $7500 is correct but a good dealer might come down on price for u a little.  I where near $2200 though.

Outdoors / 2 coyotes in thermal
« on: March 05, 2017, 10:12:24 PM »
Slow night. Saw these 2 coyotes around 2am and managed to get within about 100 yards. Scope was on the wrong reticle location setting.  The Reap IR holds 4 different zeros and I was on the wrong gun/reticle location combo... my bad :/ End of video shows different reticle location save options.

Thanks! And ya it's not cheap! And I'm trying rich... but I don't have a boat or a motorcycle. So that's my toy. The image through the lens is much better than it is on video. Not even a comparison really.

Outdoors / 150 yd coyote dropped with thermal
« on: February 09, 2017, 02:29:01 PM »
Video below.
Got out for a couple hours last night near Winnie. Only saw one coyote and the wind was not in my favor. I watched her run back and forth across the field for over 30 minutes at a distance. I had opened a bucket of rotten food/soured corn, but she wouldn't come in. So I blew on the wounded rabbit call to entice her a little more. She stopped and started messing with something at about 150 yards. Turned out to be the coyote I didn't recover from last weekend. Since she was already apprehensive about coming any closer, I decided to take the shot.

" Wearing"refers to hand guns. Carrying refers to long guns under preemption

I think this legislative session.....HB 106 is open carry- Basically if it passes u can open or concealed carry a handgun IF* u have chl.
HB 195 is constitutional carry- no need for chl anymore. if u can legally own a gun u can legally open or conceal carry a handgun or long gun without needing any special license (no chl required at all).
There are a few others. One in particular would nullify any federal gun laws in tx.
Also for those that don't know, the Texas constitution expressly states that there is no regulation of long arms in tx. Home vehicle, or on your person, concealed or open.
