-4 hogs down thermal eradication
« on: April 01, 2017, 07:41:27 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.

    That's a lot of field rats right there!  How do you like the SIG suppressor?  I've been eyeballing them but haven't had the opportunity to try one out.

    I'm a big fan. I really do like it a lot. It's really quiet and lightweight and not that long....
    But hey It's got good girth and apparently that's what the ladies like haha
    I also have a Rugged Surge. Made by the same guy that used to own and develop silencerCo suppressors. It's heavy and can be used on pretty much anything 30 cal. It can also be shortened and has other end caps for 5.56. Very modular/versatile. I don't think any other rifle suppressors do that

    Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
    Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.
    Ray Chapman, used to say that the 125-grain Magnum load’s almost magical stopping power was the only reason to load .357 instead of .38 Special +P ammunition into a fighting revolver chambered for the Magnum round. I agree. - Massad Ayoob
