Prep’s This Week…..

This week my main accomplishment was the purchase of an ATN X-Sight II 3-14X Day/Night Vision optic. So far I am very impressed and will report pro’s and con’s after further evaluation.

Night vision is one of several preparedness critical items that I am focused on now. The old adage “Two is one and one is none” holds true with night vision as well thus a second device is needed. Possibly a non-weapons mounted thermal might fit the bill.

Here are a couple pictures from both day and night use from the X-Sight:


Zoom at standard 3X





Zoom at maximum 14X




Night Vision  – IR is in use – picture doesn’t do it justice – using black/white filter



No IR Filter – not mounted on a weapon systems

Shot another 60 rounds or so through my Springfield Operator 1911 while visiting my brother. An incredible piece of precision weaponry. Trigger pull is crisp and well below that of any other pistol I own. I tried taking a few shots at a range somewhere between 60-80 yards.

Here are the results of my 3 long range shots:


Fun day throwing 230 grain FMJ rounds down range.

OK folks…..your turn.
