HC-V250K review / why I chose this instead of the HC-V550 and HC-V750

I recently purchased a new HC-V250K camcorder and it is awesome. The zoom on this thing is better than I imagined.  I compared this to my digital camera that had a 12x optical zoom and a total of around 30x digital zoom and am blown away.  This camera will go out to 90x optical zoom and you can change a setting where it will go out to 3000X digital zoom. The only thing I have not liked about this camera is the fact that aftermarket batteries...

The Best Bore Cleaner and Bore Lube

A while back I was introduced to a product that is what I believe the best bore lube on the market. They also have a bore cleaner that is top notch. Why do I think this is the best? The bore cleaner has a much higher flash point than regular bore lubes. Why does this matter? Well flash point is the temperature where combustion occurs. Most barrel lubes will burn away just after a few shots. But not this stuff, it will stay put shot after shot....

Adjustable Hammock Straps

Maybe you have seen the Eno adjustable straps for a hammock pictured below. They run about 25 dollars for the set. If your looking for an alternative, check out a rock climbing Daisy Chain. They are easy to set up, and easy to adjust, and you can get buy with only one of them. They are a little shorter than the Eno versions, but they work great for me. You know they are strong enough if they can take a fall by a rock climber. You may also want...

Hide your money and valuables with a diversion safe

If you have anything of value in your house, you should check out a diversion safe. It is too easy for a criminal to break into your house and get your stuff, so protect yourself. Most criminals will only look in obvious places and get out of your house quick, to not get caught. This could be different if you have advertized your not at home (like on facebook). That is another subject by itself, but don’t tell people you are out of town...

Garden and yard Irrigation for trees, shrubs, gardens and plants using the Snip-N-Drip System

Tired of your plants dying? I was! I have a plot of land about 30 minutes from where I currently live that I have planted fruit trees, grapes and blackberries. Since this is out of the way, I get very little time to water the trees and plants during the summer when it gets dry. I set out to fix the problem and I think this could be very useful to a lot of people. First I already had a timer for a sprinkler system that I could use. I used the...

Potato Gun

When I was in Highschool I build a few potato guns from scratch. They were really fun but also dangerous. Someone I knew used to shoot them at trailers in their trailer park and shot a potato through a window of a car. They are very powerful. I was very surprised that amazon sells potato guns on amazon prime. Not only do they sell potato guns, they sell different sizes and barrel lengths. If you buy one of these, be very...
