Game Changer Tech

It is not often on SLB that I use the phrase “game-changer.” Most things progress, if they progress at all, in small increments. This time, though, is one of those that deserves the phrase game-changer.

The innovation is the low-cost, light-weight but powerful battery developed by Nobel prize-winner Alan Heeger, PhD of the University of California at Santa Barbara (UCSB). The company is Biosolar

4 Outstanding Whelens

Over the years a surprising number of firearms have been chambered in 35 Whelen ... usually on a limited run basis. Some have been budget rifles, but more often than not high quality rifles have bore the Whelen stamp.

I decided to do a search of what is available today and found four very interesting and high quality rifles being manufactured at this time.

My First Ever Bedding Project

I prefer wooden rifle stocks over synthetic ones, even though high quality synthetic rifle stocks make for more accurate shooting.

Hunting 2015 and New Blog

They say it's better to be late than never, so I've decided to post about my 2015 hunting season.

Suddenly, and actually to my surprise, the breaking of branches was right beside me ... the moose must've picked up the pace. There was a screen of small spruce about 15 yards to my right, and just like that the branches began to move .. and there he was walking right past me.
