At our 3rd annual Bangin’ Brouhaha at Hogs & Heifers, we got to hang out, drink with friends, and raise money for a veterans charity. Thank you Hogs & Heifers for hosting our mangey assess helping the cause!
Now that we picked a trigger for The Apologizer our all Canadian precision rifle build it was time to find an action that will take that trigger. We chose the Ultimatum Precision Deadline short action for the Apologizer build. It takes the TriggerTech Diamond trigger, is easy to operate, & well designed. The Deadline is a Remington 700ish footprint action that takes Remington 700 Triggers and Savage small shank pre-fit barrels.
Triggers in most guns are a lot like insoles in most shoes to me, they work but could be better… a lot better. I almost always swap out a stock trigger for one that meets my needs and if TriggerTech makes one for the gun it gets one installed. For the Apologizer build I swapped the stock trigger for a TriggerTech Diamond, known for short trigger stroke, low pull weight, no creep, and crisp break.
As a person with sizable feet, I always get excited when I see a new interesting hiking boot and the Altra Lone Peak 3.5 Mid Mesh certainly fits the bill.

When Slim worked his tiny connections and phoned Mini Dana and got us both Mystery Ranch 3 Day Assault Packs I was ecstatic. Not only would I be able to get a nice bag but it came in one of my favorite colors Multicam. Slim and Swinging Dick have been off on another adventure across the pond so we only get the odd picture of them doing things but so far Slim has been impressed with his. Mine has been used as everything from a camera bag, day pack, radio bag and much more. When I am adventuring off the tarmac the Multicam color makes it so I don’t have to care where I set it down. Dirt does not really show.
Much of the “tactical industry” can be found in the frigid, wind-swept waste Beyond the Wall in Canuckia. Here are some of the Canadians of SHOT!

Most people know Adams Arms for their piston rifles. They have had slides for sale for a little while now. The latest news is that they decided to go and make a full-on Glock 19-ish gun which we got to shoot at Media Day At The Range during the 2020 SHOT Show. Here comes the AA-19 — not to be confused by the AA-12 which is a shotgun.
