Ammunition natures – temporary effects on POI shift

Why would I know anything about POI shift? I work as a Ballistics Engineer and pro shooter. I spend a lot of time on ranges firing a variety of weapons. Not only do we conduct firings for new developments but also proof production runs for accuracy. This allows me to gather a lot of data……


Ruike M51 Multifunction Knife

Previous to my dalliance with the Ruike M51 I had a yearning for  multifunctional knives. At 9yrs old I was already the proud owner of a slip joint pen knife emblazoned with Disney’s Goofy on the scale. The knife went everywhere with me as I explored the wooded areas around the local neighbourhood with my……


Sniper Solutions – Sniper Hider

If you have ever shot scoped rifles in direct sunlight you will be aware that it can sometimes be a big problem. It can be a struggle to see anything with glare on the lens. Scope manufacturers will often sell a tube which screws onto the front of the scope. These act as a sunshade……


MecArmy X7S multifunction EDC

During my trip to SHOT 18 earlier this year I spent quite a bit of time trying to find products and companies that might interest GnZ readers. One of the Exhibitors that caught my eye was a new name to me – MecArmy. They had some beautifully crafted EDC items which were drawing admiration and……


Nextorch – Three products I cannot do without..

I have used quite a lot of lighting options over the years. From night fishing, camping, hunting and the standard winter evening dog walks I have always had a need for decent illumination.

It was a surprise to find really rugged looking field cutlery being sold……

Flipper Knives – Maserin Pitbull and Tekut Tiburon

If I had to choose my all time favourite type of knives for general use it would be a smooth flipping folder. There is something really pleasing as the blade deploys with a with a graceful SNICK! The design seems simple yet in practice a truly smooth and robust flipper requires careful design and precise……


Nextool Dino Bone Tactical Pen

I am a big fan of the Tactical Pen. Now I am not so keen on the term “tactical” as a marketing tool but I am not sure how else to describe the pens which are sold as such. Usually the pens are made of metal and feature a glass breaking tip. They often look……


Scope Mounts.

Scope mounts are probably everyones least favourite subject. Unless you are Nerdy.. I am. I wrote a whole article on Torque settings entitled “Lets talk about Torque”. It surprised me that popular demand hasn’t prompted the sequel “Look who’s torqueing”.. Anyway I digress.. Scope mounts…. We all spend a hell of a lot of money……
