M3GI and a Learning Curve

Steven K. Ledin, M3GI and a Learning Curve

I'm hard to roll over, but Crimson Trace did it. I get it now, I understand. There was no way I could've shot the Crimson Trace M3GI (Midnight 3 Gun Invitational) as well as I did without lasers on my rifle and pistol. I particularly never did like increasing the size of the grip on my pistol by installing a laser. Gaston Glock exhaustively researched his original model 17 design to have the optimum grip size and angle for the average hand, and I've gotten intimate with several of these superb pistols since the late 80s. But again, I could not have shot the course as well …

Still Building for Crimson Trace M3GI, Midwest Outdoor Filming, and Dogs

Steven K. Ledin, Still Building for Crimson Trace M3GI, Midwest Outdoor Filming, and Dogs

Got a few "Tips of the Week" done for Midwest Outdoors TV yesterday. The Weaver Tactical 4-20×50 in first focal plane is shown in Burris XTR rings with an EGW HD base on a Savage 10 McMillan in .308.

My Colt is coming together nicely, with a Crimson Trace vert foreend, and the awesome new Vortex Razor HD Gen II 1-6×24 scope in a Vortex QD mount. The mount WILL return to zero when reattached. I like the Hogue grips on black guns. I also have an LMT first gen buttstock, a Surefire flash hider, …

Crimson Trace M3GI and Midwest Outdoors filming

Steven K. Ledin, Crimson Trace M3GI and Midwest Outdoors filming

This Thursday I'll take a road trip to a farm where I'll shoot a few more tips of the week for Midwest Outdoors television show. This time the featured products are the Burris Eliminator III rangefinding riflescope, the Leupold RX 1000 TBR rangefinder, and a Weaver Tactical 5-25×50 riflescope. I installed the Burris on a favorite Weatherby Vanguard Sub MOA in 300 Winchester, and the Weaver on a Savage 10 McMillan in .308. The Eliminator III is unique, and on this Vanguard with a good rest, you can hit ANYTHING! at ANY DISTANCE, assuming you do your job. Movie fantasy …

AGBI (Air Gun Bitch Invitational) Preparation

Steven K. Ledin, AGBI (Air Gun Bitch Invitational) Preparation

Plans are coming together for the first annual AGBI (Air Gun Bitch Invitational). It is air guns only, and originally it was planned to be  10 different guns at 10 different distances, with 10 different shooting disciplines or techniques. It is growing, and I may turn it into an 18 hole course, somehow.

The guns are from fair to excellent, and some really cool ones that I love to shoot. I gave a preliminary sight in to 14 different long guns and hand guns the other day. More to go.…
