Keystone 722 Varmint first shots

This rifle is incredible. At 25 yards, all shots with CCI Green Tag or Aguila match land on top of each other with minimal effort on my part. I did upgrade the scope to get adjustable parallax at 25. Typically, I disdain 1″ tubes, but this 6-24x Weaver on low Warne rings is as spectacular as the rifle. Clear, with great eye box and clean, sharp reticle. Of the three models (Sporter, Classic, Varmint), the Varmint is the one to get. Great balance, superb barrel.

Photos of the targets and the rifle with the new scope coming soon. The picture above shows bundled 3-9x Simmons optic, decent but less luxurious and on higher rings than the Weaver.

Olympus E500 or similar camera

Does anyone have an E500 they could lend me for a few days? I’d like to figure out if friend’s problem with one are from the technical limitations of the body or some other cause.

Daily leather

Recently, I noticed that my most frequently carried pistol is an old Glock 23 in a pancake holster, a type that I don’t normally favor. I am not a great fan of mid-size .40 pistols, so this practice puzzled me. On some thought, I realized that the pistol fits my hand just too well to be left at home. It’s my only truly custom handgun, fitted to my hand by my friend Brandon. And the holster was made by my friend Dennis of Dragon Leatherworks. It’s just too comfortable not to wear.

Last weekend, I saw several new designs from Dennis, took photos and will be posting them as I get them ready for web. Below is a very comfy PPK holster. The whole point of going to a custom designer is the ability to specify exactly what you want. He made a Star SI .32 holster for me once — where could I have found a production holster for that? Or something for a Webley Mk.2, or a rig for a mainstream XDM but in ostrich skin for the unique look and feel?   Take a look at his site. The holsters stand up to heavy daily use and yet make the weight of the gun pretty much disappear.
