This is a raw out-take of the footage for BCW Ep.2: Wild and Wonderful Woodies. I make a quick and solid shot on a group of passing woodies, selecting the outside Drake as my target. To my astonishment and pleasant surprise, the downed bird is not just a beautiful Drake Wood Duck, but he is Banded!

Here is a compilation of b-roll I figured I’d share with y’all on the Palmerto State Armory 10.5” Phosphate Magpul MOE Pistol build. This kit was shipped as you see it, minus the Anderson Mfg. virgin lower receiver, Daniel Defense rear sight, and other accessories.

So far, I am impressed with the kit. While the pistol does recoil more than anticipated, it is noting that can not be managed by an experienced and competent shooter when the need for rapid fire arises.

Here we take a look at how to disassemble the Action Spring Tube on the SBE 3.

Welcome to the very first episode of the hunting show for this channel, Bad Company Waterfowl.

In this episode, I hunt alone on the New River in Southwestern Virginia during the states Early Resident Goose Season and Early Teal Season. Follow along as I take a single goose and have to call for an "extraction" downriver as the water rapidly rises and becomes too quick to paddle back up river.

God Bless and Keep Your Powder Dry

It was Late February in Central City, Nebraska and the white devils returned in greater numbers than 2017. It was the first morning I had seen any sizable flocks touch down around town, and I could not pass up the opportunity. I retrieved my SBE 3 from the truck and a box of Hevi-Steel 3” BB shells, walked across the road from my office to the neighbors and asked permission to kill ‘em. (I was given a resounding “Go Get ‘Em Off Our Field!).

I had thousands of eyes looking so I did not get as close as I would have liked, but I downed and recovered 14 birds (including 3 Ross’s Geese).

Have you considered hunting with an old Auto 5 or Auto 5 Magnum? How about just any old duck gun that you may have collecting dust in a closet or gun cabinet? If so, you may be concerned with using modern steel ammunition in your old gun or whether or not you should risk using it in conditions that may cause rust, dings, scratches or dents. Well, fear not and ponder no longer! In today's video, I will lay the groundwork for what ammo is safe to use, how to set up your Auto-5 to shoot modern ammo, and things to consider when shopping for and selecting an old Auto-5 (or other old guns) to take on a hunt.

Thanks for watching and as always, God Bless and Keep Your Powder Dry!

Just a quick channel update from Central Nebraska - May 1 2018

This time around we take a look at the Stoeger Model 3020 as I go over my impressions and observations of the shotgun. This little gun is an excellent utilitarian tool and is an exceptional 20 gauge autoloader.

Just a quick vid of testing out the Browning Auto 5 Magnum with 3” Rio Royal Blue Steel 1-1/4oz 1400 FPS Duck Loads. Very smooth and little recoil.

Just another fun slo-mo vid of the Browning Auto 5 Magnum.

Loads used are Federal Heavy Field 2-3/4” 3-1/4 Dram 1-1/4oz #6 loads

The very first episode of this new series is on my Syracuse Arms Company Hollenbeck Double Barrel Shotgun in 12 gauge. Going forward, several other iconic American waterfowling guns will be featured from the same era.

Thank you for your viewership and as always, God Bless and keep your powder dry.

This will serve as my full review of the SX4. While I will update the channel with any experiences that differ from that which we have had thus far, I feel we have enough shooting and hunting under our belts with this scattergun to provide our impressions and overall understanding of the gun.

As always, God Bless and keep your powder dry.


This is just a quick review of a really great peice of gear I picked up this past duck season.

I have very much enjoyed the utility and durability of the jacket/coat and look forward to many years of use.

This was filmed back in July of 2017, but I never got around to editing and uploading it. I figure April of 2018 is as good a time as any. Great performance out of the gun and the #1 load has become my all-around favorite shell for 80% of the season.

Just a quick VLog regarding upcoming changes and new mediums to consume AAC content. Thanks for watching!

Load testing and development of the "Reaper" loading in the 25-45 Sharps cartridge.

I make my Benelli SBE 3 ready for snow goose season in Nebraska with a Nordic Components Extension tube and a Wolf +25% power action spring.
