A Little Gun Rap From Dan (Multi-Post) – Part 56

For those of you wondering how the Henry Otis Technology ear protection works, I tried it briefly after filming the video about the Henry Repeating Arms Small Game “Target” Carbine H001TLP.

I fired 20 rounds, and they were a different sound. Kind of a crisp sound, rather than the muffled sound that you get with the Howard Leight headphones. However, they did protect the hearing, and were not in the way of the rifle butt. Of course, the Leight low profile units are also out of the way of most rifle butts, other than some Monte Carlo designs.

The Otis brand does fold up nicely to store in your range bag, or even a pocket. I don’t think they would be comfortable to wear for long periods of time.

There is a short, first impressions, review. More will most likely be coming later as there is more use.

Until next time, shoot safe, and have a great day of plinking.

This is the video for those of you wanting to see the results of the Henry Repeating Arms H001TLP Carbine, using the Skinner Sights Peep Sight. I shot targets from 15, 25 and 50 yards. https://youtu.be/sm69qm7UQ-0

I said that Shoot ‘N’ Plink™ was going to touch a little on knife throwing, so I got a little more of an assortment than what I had planned. I ran into some pretty good prices on the Hibben Knives throwing models on BUDK so went ahead and got three models of sets of 3 (pro, black paracord and tanto point). This goes along with a set of 12 Kunai from Whetstone Cutlery, set of 3 Schrade 10″ and set of 4 Cold Steel Sure Flight.

So, now I have knives of several sizes and weights. I’m finding that I can throw the longest distances to make them stick with the lighter weight and shorter models. Those are the Kunai and Schrade. It is surprising how much lighter the Schrade is when it looks heavier. The two heaviest are the Cold Steel and Hibben Tanto, which are also the longest.

There is no way that I’m going to say I’m an expert at this. I’m just going to do it for the fun of it, film a couple of videos (maybe only one), write an article or two, and talk to the beginners on what I’m doing, why I selected what I did, techniques that I might figure out, and so on.

My advice at the moment to anyone is as it would be with shooting – throw safe. Also, I would say to watch all the videos, read what you can, and then develop whatever style of throwing technique works for you. I have a bad right shoulder so I have to go with what feels comfortable, and try to make something work.

It is still going to be Shoot ‘N’ Plink™ and not Shoot, Throw ‘N’ Plink.

Until next time, shoot safe, and have a great day of plinking.

The Maglula 10/22 Lula loader won the NRA Golden Bullseye Award for accessories. This is a great product for all of you who load box magazines. They can be a royal pain, but this product makes it a breeze, as you can see in the Shoot ‘N’ Plink™ video that I filmed a few months ago.
