A $4,000 scope on a $230 rifle (or, can ice cubes be good reactive targets?)

It's all in the name of science. Ok, it's difficult to justify putting a $3,800 (add tax and you're right at $4k) scope on a plinking rifle, but it's really a lot of fun. In this case I needed a platform onto which I could mount the ATN ThOR 4 640 2.5-25x thermal imaging scope. The ThOR 4 records at 1280x960 @ 60 fps and we need that for the... experiment. Not only is the Savage 93 a good physical mount for the ThOR 4, it's fun to shoot. Zeroing the scope to the rifle is very straightforward; the One Shot Zero feature allows you to put crosshairs on your POI and POA at same time! The scope does the correction for you. Once you're zeroed, it's time to see how it shoots. This video shows five

Another First Impression - MP5 Suppressor Comparisons

Earlier we shared with you David O'Donnell's initial impression of the D9 suppressor on Zenith's Z-5 (MP5) platforms. The two most remarkable characteristics he noted were target acquisition, handling and lack of blow-back. In this installment, David shares his observations and opinions of the Dead Air Wolf 9SD, the Silencerco Omega 9K, and the D9 on those same platforms. One remarkable moment is when David compares the sound attenuation abilities of the suppressors. We could discuss it further here, but you'll most likely get more out of the video. David is a good evaluator; he's a practiced and experienced shooter, he's managed a gun shop selling suppressors, he's a sales rep in the sport
