Huey Helicopter

There was more than machinegun fire at the 2011 Bullet Fest event.  We also received a visit from the Aviation Unit of the Knox County Sheriff's Dept.  They arrived in their Huey Helicopter!

I know my filming wasn't all that great.  But, I still think the footage is too cool not to share.

Congratulations to CrossBreed Holsters!  They were awarded the Shooting Illustrated Golden Bullseye Accessory of the Year Award for their Bedside Backup.

The Bedside Backup design offers a modular and secure method for keeping a firearm within easy reach at your bedside. The BedSide Backup also folds flat for easy packing and traveling. It's main support simply slips between the mattress and box springs, and the OHAI holster attaches via velcro.

Water Transfer Printing on Rifles

Water transfer printing on rifles is definitely becoming more common.  It is a great way to give your rifle a look that is unique and durable.  Quite often, rifles are done in a camo pattern.  But, did you know that there are thousands of patterns that you can choose from?

Check out the Head Down Products' XPR15 Rifle that received a water transfer printing pattern from our friends at Georgia Hydrographics.  I think the pattern that was selected was a great choice... Reaper Black!

Dad Waves at the Bus

Ok... this story has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with guns.  But, I think it is a great story.

As a summary.... A really good humored dad decided to do something a little special for his teenage son.  So, every day, he stands in the front yard and waves as his son's school bus drives by.  Yeah, that alone would have been embarrassing for most of us.  BUT, this dad takes it too a whole new level.  Each day, he wears a different costume.

What do I think of this?... I think it is AWESOME!  The only thing that bothers me is that I didn't think of it first.

Want to learn more about this family?  Of course there is a Wave at the Bus web site!

Let me make a correction... I said this story has nothing to do with guns.  I guess that isn't technically true.  As you read the Wave at the Bus website, you will find that Dad used to own a paintball gun store.  That is how he got a lot of his camo outfits.
