What happened to my powder? REACH Compliance

As some of you may be aware Varget is becoming increasingly hard to source in Europe. In fact many popular propellants are rapidly turning into unicorns. So what’s the deal?

GnZ attends Enforcetac/IWA Germany

During the first week of March I was lucky enough to attend Enforcetac and IWA. For those of you that haven’t heard of these shows I should probably explain them.

The word tactical is everywhere at the moment in the firearms industry. However it is a word that generates controversy for a variety of different reasons. Why has “tactical” become so popular? What does it even mean? This article aims to shed some 850 lumen, aircraft grade aluminium, LED light on the subject…


Long range shooting for beginners 8 – long range at the range..

After a rather mundane bit with maths and tables we now get to have some serious fun. This is the day we have been working towards – shooting out to 1000+ yds. For some of you competitive long range veterans that may seem like no big deal. For many (myself included) who have spent years……
