Dead Air Mask HD . . . Helping make new Riflemen! That moment of pride when your 5 yr old starts on the 100 yard steel because the 50 is too easy. Using his great grandfather's Savage mk II. Primary Arms FFP mil dot.

I needed to do a function check and i took my 5 year old with me. He was banging the 100 yard steel and coyote when he got bored with the 50yard steel.

Steel targets from www.418plates.com

Friday at the Range was actually Friday through Sunday. Started out with fishing and both boys caught their first fish.

Wild River Ranch is the best place to hunt in Texas.

We got down to shooting. I dropped a plate out at 700 yards. The wind was blowing hard. Gusting up to 20. I confirmed zero on the IR Hunter Snipe IR at 100 yards. This was mounted on my 22 AR-15. I figured it would be perfect for coons if we saw any.

I was trying a new rifle mount. The Kopfjager Reaper Grip. This is a little different from the hog saddle that I normally use. I'm still getting used to it. So far I like it. It has a plate that allows you to mount either a camera or your spotting scope next to your rifle. This allows you to get some interesting video. That also should allow me to get some interesting video with the night-vision.


The IR Hunter and Kopfjager Reaper Grip are demo units from Thirda Coast Thermal.
Dinner was some perfectly grilled steaks.

I know, I'm too indulgent. My oldest son decided to eat Beast Style. I did make him cut it and eat it properly after I let him take a couple of bites like this.


Ready for #diepiggydie. Team Wendy exfil, TNVC pvs-14 w/ stellar L3 filmless & a flir recon M24.

Colt Lights AMRAAM 1200 for visible light


wild river ranch 6.8spc w/ a 12.5" Kotonics chrome lined barrel & Wilson Combat Whisper suppressor. TNVC D-740 NV sight on top.


Trash pandas . . Fear the night . . Confirming zero with the IR Hunter Snipe IR on a .22 rimfire AR w/ the Dead Air Mask HD. Collimated and set up for coons and other varmints this weekend. This combination procedure is extremely important for the snipe IR to work as a clip-on.


#diepiggydie all dressed up and no pigs. POF P-308, IR Hunter Mk II 20mm, Dead Air Sandman L, Rifles Only HAD suppressor cover, Colt Lights Microtac M-sceptre, Team Wendy Exfil, TNVC PVC-14.


Shooting the Savage MKii Mounted in the Kopfjager Reaper Grip. Set up for the 6 yer old.

The funny thing about the cameras with my six year old swears that he hit the target and refuses to believe me when I tell him he needs to adjust his point of aim, I can roll the tape back and let him see the miss


This is the 700 yd steel. I was shooting 147 grain Portuguese Surplus. You can see where one round skipped off the dirt in front of the target and hit sideways. Well this is not a very tight group, I was shooting Surplus Ammo with a 20 mile-an-hour gusting crosswind. I know excuses excuses



Shooting the FN SPR w/ @cruxsuppressors Archangel and Rifles Only HAD suppressor cover. Mounted in the Kopfjager Reaper Grip.

Shooting the FN SPR w/ @cruxsuppressors Archangel and Rifles Only HAD suppressor cover. Mounted in the Kopfjager Reaper Grip.

The video camera adds an interesting perspective to the entire experience. I'm looking forward to running a PVS 14 on the front of that camera and shooting hogs at night


You can see the mounting plate for the video camera in this shot









700 yard IPSC


12" plate at 600 yards


Shooting the 22 AR at 300 yards with the dead air mask HD suppressor. My son was shooting his BB gun beside me

This AR-15 is optimized for shooting prairie dogs. It has a 26in AR Performance barrel and a Wilson Combat whisper suppressor. It is topped with a Zeiss optic. I was shooting out to 600 yards and hitting steel with no problem

These top photos show the camera and spotting scope mount for the Kopfjager Reaper Grip.

I thought it was interesting. I was able to review my shots and see where I missed if I did not catch that in the optic. One thing I need to work on is getting the camera to stay oriented during recoil with the 308. That is not a Reaper grip issue. That is a camera mount equipment issue













This is a fascinating little SBR. It is a Bushmaster Carbon AR-15 with a 7 & a half inch barrel and a Wilson Combat whisper suppressor on the end.


There's something cool about waking up in the morning and walking out on the porch and starting with 19mil of elevation and the 400 yd


My oldest son is shooting his great-grandfather's Savage Mark 2 in the Kopfjager Reaper Grip. My youngest wanted to shoot his BB gun. We have a lot of work to do before they can use open sights reliably

Lots of pigs hit. Found these 4.

The number one lesson is shot placement. Even with a 308, it is not the magic finger of death and you have to aim and pick where you are going to shoot the pig. If you shoot them in the wrong place they will run off. Some of these pigs were shot in the right place and they still ran off.

Equipment used. POF P-308, IR Hunter Mk II 20mm, Dead Air Sandman L, Rifles Only HAD suppressor cover, Colt Lights Microtac M-sceptre, Team Wendy Exfil, TNVC PVC-14.

www.wildriverranchllc.net 6.8spc w/ a 12.5" Kotonics chrome lined barrel & Wilson Combat Whisper suppressor. TNVC D-740 NV sight on top.


All dressed up for his 2nd pig hunt. I put the flir rm24 Recon in my six year old's hands so he would be able to see and interact as the hunt progressed


I believe that is the exit wound. If you look at the video this pig was shot in the rear as he was turning around. He ran 50 yards and dropped. My youngest was very brave to walk through the edge of the forest to get to the clearing where we found him. POF P-308. Even with a 308, shot placement is important.




This was the second pig of the night. He ran about 75 yards before he dropped and died.



Spine shot with a 6.8.


3rd pig shot on the run with the P-308


I'm using the flir rm24 Recon and the Colt lights AMRAAM 1200 to search for dead pigs in the brush

Friday Guns. #DiePiggyDie. POF P-308, a Dead Air Sandman L a Rifles Only HAD suppressor cover with a IR Hunter Mk II from Third Coast Thermal.

I got this one on the run at about 125 yards after missing his head.


This was the perfect head shot.


I was using a TNVC pVS-14 in a Wilcox mount on a Team Wendy EXFIL ballistic helmet. I believe this is the most comfortable ballistic helmet I've ever worn.

Friday was the first nice, comfortable day at the range that we've had since the end of April. The perfect day for sighting in one of the rifles.

I used some Surplus 147 grain NATO 308. Got what I believe or a couple of respectable groups for that ammo

Friday at the Range: The POF P-308, w/ the Steiner R1X, Dead Air Sandman L with the Rifles Only HAD suppressor cover in the Kopfjager Reaper Grip. Using the spotting scope camera mount to film what I'm shooting.






The new Steiner r1x had no problem hitting a 12in plate at 100 yd when zeroed at 50m. I'm going to see what ranges the lower four red dots correspond to at a later date


Enjoying a new cigar. A Drew Estates Muwat Kentucky Fire Cured cigar. It had a different taste to it. But it wasn't bad at all. Sitting on top of a Vortex Razor Gen II 4- 27


The POF P-308, w/ the Steiner R1X, Dead Air Sandman L with the Rifles Only HAD suppressor cover next to the Remington 700 w/ magpul bottom


Box of awesome. Day, night long and short distance!

Friday at the Range. Sighting in two thermal Weapon sights and a hog hunt with no hogs.
Sighting in for a hog hunt . . . Hodge Defense 16"" AU Mod 1 16" w/ Surefire socom556rc & Rifles Only HAD suppressor cover. The thermal is an IR Defense Snipe IR clip on from @third_coast_thermal. It's in a kopfjager reapergrip on a Slik tripod.

The colt Lights Microtac M-sceptre will be installed for tonight's fun and games.





Managed to hit the bolt on the steel from @418plates.

Hunting hogs. Invited to some property in Trinity County by friend in a client. Unfortunately, there was no wind and the moon didn't come up until 4 in the morning. The Hogs did not move. In fact nothing was moving for 5 hours



Two Hodge Defense AU Mod 1s with Surefire socom556 cans & Rifles Only HAD suppressor cover.

The thermal is an IR Defense Snipe IR clip on from @third_coast_thermal.

The colt Lights Microtac M-sceptre will be installed for tonight's fun and games.








#diepiggydie Hodge Defense AU mod 1, IR Hunter Snipe IR, Rifles Only HAD suppressor cover on the Socom556sb. Team Wendy exfil w/ a TNVC pvs-14 on a Wilcox mount.
The IR snipe-ir is a loner from @third_coast_thermal


This is the snipe IR in front of the Leupold day optic. Once you get used to the position it's not hard to Upright the snipe IR. The one caveat to that is it's been hard for me to reach forward while looking through the day optic to see where I am out of the menu without the rifle mounted on a shooting sticks or some other object.





The camel backpack on the ground with the team Wendy exfil helmet and the tmvc pvs-14 and Wilcox mount. The Deep Woods Off was equally Mission essential as batteries. The mosquitoes were out in force.


Waiting on the hogs in thermal.


This photo shows the DVR setup that allows recording from the snipe IR


Hog hunting with no hogs. I am running the IR defense snipe IR clip on thermal weapon sight in front of a Leupold mark 8 1 to 8 cqbss.


#diepiggydie. No hogs for me in Trinity County, but my friend in Montgomery county used his day old, new Pulsar APEX from @third_coast_thermal to take This hog. This is on a 10.5" 5.56 SBR and a YHM QD Phantom. Neck shot. Ran 20 yds and stopped. Used hornady soft point. Sounded like someone hit a mattress with a cain pole each it time



Surefire 2011, the wristwatch flashlight. This is another piece of gear that I consider to be essential. It's one of those items that when I first got it I kind of scratched my head and wondered how useful it would be. Over the last few years I don't go on a hunt without it




I've had the snipe IR for a couple of months, I've not been able to use it in the field until tonight. The image is good. As I've learned to work through the menus and change the settings, I found this to be a very usable clip-on. I am able to get good resolution up to 6 power with the Leupold Mark 8

A young 2yr old 6pt in the fog.


The rack is 3mil wide at 80 yards. So around 10"?





Deer Season 2017. A pair of 3.5yr old 8 points in the fog. Giving them a few more years to grow.


A nice 3.5yr old 8pt. The rack is 5 mil at 80 yards. Around 16" across.

Same age class. 8pts but much narrower rack


The two 3 to 3.5 yr old 8pts together.



The 2yr old 5pt. pt

Deer Season 2017 5 point buck. Compare this to the two 3 to 3.5yr old 8 8pt bucks.

#diepiggydie Team shoot. 4 pigs down with a team effort. My friend earned the bacon award for high score! He was stacking the bacon, 3 down, with a Pulsar APEX from @third_coast_thermal on a 7.62x39mm upper and a Crux Archangel suppressor.



@third_coast_thermal provided the IR Hunter and the Pulsar.





High score. . . . Pulsar APEX from @third_coast_thermal on a 7.62x39mm upper and a Crux Archangel suppressor.



The POF P-308 was using the Trijicon (IR Hunter) Snipe-IR 35mm in dedicated sight mode. The POF has a Dead Air Key-Mo mount module, a rifles only HAD suppressor cover.




Before it got dark, I used the kopfjager Reaper grip for sighting it.




Loaded for Hog

Does that tripod not adjust for height ? Reason I ask is every one is bent over at a weird angle ( can't be comfortable) except the guy in light cooled cloths. Kids and adults seem to hunch over.

I give Sean as hard a time as anyone, but if you don't like this picture, there is something wrong with you.

Friday at The Range worked on some ammo testing and zeroed the Trijicon SNIPE-IR as a dedicated weapon sight.


That's the new Eaton Tactical case insert for organizing a pelican 1750
