    Because they are readily available and inexpensive, people buy these... and then use Rit brand dye to get a suitable color for their area. E.g: https://www.reddit.com/r/tacticalgear/search/?q=rit&type=link

    OT: Watch the excellent (IMO) movie, "A Boy and His Dog" starring (a young) Don Johnson and Jason Robards. The movie was released in 1975 and the movie poster used the year 2024 (!) as the post-apocalyptic date:

    Favorite .22lr ammo

    Aguila makes 13 different .22LR rounds. Quote: Two decades ago I bought a case and it's still going bang every time. As for "dirty," that's relative, right? I've noticed all brands leave something in the bore, mostly due to the wax (paraffin wax or beeswax tallow). BTW for best quality...

    Semi-Autos and Public Ranges

    Ranges should have: 1) a Bleeding Control Kit; 2) an Automatic External Defibrillator (AED); 3) a First Aid Kit. RSOs should have current Red Cross certification for Adult and Pediatric First Aid/CPR/AED.

    Good African Safari Shirt?

    Discovering a post like yours is one of the reasons I enjoy browsing this forum. Here's a video (circa 2015) about Avedon & Cobly International Outfitters. Burt Avedon is an interesting character--he's written a book about his life called Deadeye Trilogy. See also their About Avedon & Colby...

    Red Dot Only for Buffalo

    Follow-up: 1. Reflex sights have unlimited eye relief, and you can mount it anywhere on the gun. A prism optic requires the eye to be at the correct eye relief distance to acquire the sight picture. Eye relief specs vary from manufacturers to models. They’re generally in the 2-4” range. The...

    Red Dot Only for Buffalo

    For my astigmatism: 1) no joy using polarized glasses; 2) yes, a green dot is much clearer than a red dot. Re: polarized glasses, here's a pull-quote from this article: See also (video is queued to discussion about polarized lens):

    Wow! Impressive setup! And the sound absorbing foam is an interesting idea; how well did it work? As for the screens, I'd try adding a "gutter" at the lower rung to see if it would catch the cases.

    Red Dot Only for Buffalo

    Astigmatism causes the "dot" to appear as a "starburst" (possibly off-axis, too). Interestingly, my prescription astigmatism-corrective lenses had no affect when viewing a reflex sight's dot! Instead of using a reflex sight, I opted for a prism sight (e.g., Primary Arm's selection) which...

    In no particular order: 1. Pick day(s) and time(s) (taking into account the heat of course) when the likelihood of semi-auto shooters is low(er). 2. As someone already posted: a wide brim hat is a must. (E.g., the kind landscape laborers wear is a good choice.) Wear a long sleeve, collared...

    Scope viewing angle calculation to field of view measurement

    The tangent function (tan) is the ratio of the opposite leg (side) to the adjacent leg (side). In other words, the ratio of the rise to the run (i.e., slope): tan(1) degree is 0.01745506 0.01745506 X 100 yards (the length of the adjacent leg) = 1.745506 yards or 5.24 feet. E.g.: Scope A is...
