MidwayUSA also has the Leupold FX-3 Silhouette scope on sale. This factory-refurbished 30x40mm optic was designed for silhouette competition, though it can also be used for Benchrest or F-Class competition. Originally listed for $699.99, it is now marked down to $431.99, a 38% savings. This is a great deal for a 30-power big name optic.

Last but not least is the Leupold 1.5-4X Mark AR MOD 1 optic at $262.49. This is suited for action events, 3-Gun Comps, and Service Rifle competition. Current CMP Service Rifle rules allow optics with up to 4.5 power magnification. This scope has 1/10 Mil clicks and FIXED (non-adjustable) parallax. You’ll have to pay a LOT more for a premium service rifle scope with adjustable parallax.

Digital Leveling Devices — Level Your Rifle or Check Shot Angles

Here’s a cool product that can help you level your front rest and rear bag, level your scope, align your target frame, and perform a myriad of tasks around the house. The Digital Angle Cube (aka Electronic Level and Protractor Gauge) is basically a high-tech level that gives you exact angular read-outs to within 0.2 degrees. That’s a lot more precise than any bubble level.

Numerous Shooting-Related Applications
For you position shooters who like to run angled sights, this tool will help you set the rear sight and front tower to exactly the same angle. For High Power guys with 3-way and 4-way adjustable buttstocks, this digital angle gauge can help you quickly and precisely set buttstock angle and cast-off.

Even tactical shooters and long-range hunters can use this device to confirm exact shot angle, with greater precision than a plastic protractor or even an expensive Angle Degree Indicator (ADI). Heck you can even use the thing as an anti-cant device (if you don’t mind the extra weight). We’re sure that our clever readers can find even more uses for a digital angle read-out tool.

The gray-faced iGaging Digital AngleCube sells on Amazon.com for $31.95. It comes with magnets on two sides so you can attach the tool to any ferrous metal surface for a “hands-free” reading. Amazon also sells the WATERPROOF Neoteck Digital Level for $24.95, with magnets on the base. You can find similar devices in hardware and home improvement stores. The illustration below shows how an INSIZE digital level and protractor can be used in the field.

New Fast-Access Handgun Vehicle Safe with RFiD Technology

Hornady Rapid handgun pistol car truck vehicle Safe security box lock

Hornady has an innovative new gunsafe designed for use in vehicles. The new Hornady RAPiD Vehicle Safe offers instant access using modern RFID technology. In addition the RAPiD Safe can easily be installed in nearly any car or truck with individual front seats and a center column. The safe is placed either on the driver’s side or the passenger side, in the gap between the seat and the center console. An inflatable air bladder fits into the gap between seat and column, holding the RAPiD safe steady. A further cable locks around the seat base for added security.

We checked out this product at SHOT Show and it has a lot of positives. It can be easily moved from one vehicle to another, with no interior modifications required. Your handgun can be deployed in just a few seconds (watch video). There is a back-up conventional barrel lock and key, so you can always access your firearm even if the electrical system malfunctions. The RAPiD Vehicle safe can run on its own batteries or you can plug its cord into your vehicle’s 12V power outlet. The air bladder wedge system works pretty well on most vehicles, but the RAPiD Safe definitely wobbles a bit when you open or close it. We prefer it on the passenger side, unless you have a very wide center console.
