German Beer A few weeks back I was at the store with a friend shopping for beers to stock his fridge and we decided to each do a pick-six and try out some different flavors. I came across the Leibinger Seeradler plus (a grapefruit soda mixed with beer) which for the non Germans a Radler is a beer-based mixed drink similar to a sports drink that, as my Germen friends explained to me, is a drink someone might order after working out or playing a sport since it is refreshing. Since I am not German nor have I spent anytime there, this was a weird concept to me, that someone would want to mix a sports drink like Gatorade and beer together, but to each his own. I digress. When I brought this home, having no idea what I was about to drink, I was made fun of for not drinking … What you’re missing….
I had planned to just review the Howard Leight*1 Impact Sport Electronic Earmuffs but plans changed. Customer Care A few months back I got in contact with Howard Leight about getting some earmuffs to review for shooting but what I didn’t know at the time was that I was going to review the company as well. When I contacted the company, instead of my normal getting bounced around and transferred five times until I talked with the right person, I talked with ONE person. I had the pleasure of talking with Customer Care Rep Laraine from Howard Leight. Empowered Reps Normally I have to talk with someone in marketing or another division who handles media requests such as this one. With Howard Leight, I only worked with the customer care rep who the company has empowered to be able help the customer not like a number of other large (non-firearm) … What you’re missing….
First I will say that I am an affiliate of Amazon however this is NOT a paid review and Amazon had no knowledge that I planned on reviewing them. l like to buy things and get it as quick as possible. Waiting for whatever I bought bugs the living hell out of me! When I have a product I am review for a company I have to have the tracking codes to stalk that package until the moment it is in my hands… yes I know I have a problem and no I don’t need counseling! I like being this way. In 2012 I was offered an upgrade on my Amazon account to the prime for a 90 day trial. I opted in and found the free 2 day shipping on all Amazon Prime items for sale which I liked, but really only bought 1 thing in that time frame … What you’re missing….
Battlefield 4 is one of the two big shooter titles out on consoles and PC. I have been playing it on the Sony PS4 and I am breaking it into categories and some sub categories within the larger ones for ease of reading. CAMPAIGN:First I must say that I am not a person that normally plays campaign. In BF4 you unlock weapons just by playing the campaign. I won’t reveal which ones but I will say it’s a shotgun, pistol, assault rifle and a light machine gun. This campaign is VERY short. 6 missions to be exact. I guess it’s a little better that each mission is 20 minutes and some a bit longer. Again, I don’t like campaign so I only played to get the guns so I don’t mind how short it is. MULTIPLAYER:There are very large differences in the online play between the two huge shooter titles. … What you’re missing….
I contacted Bullseye Camera Systems a few months back to review their Bullseye Camera Systems 500 Yard Edition. The company was founded in 2012 and I rate it as one of the best new pieces of shooting gear for 2013. While Panzer was prepping for an elk hunt this past October, we spent day after day at the rifle range to hone his distance shooting skills with his new rifle. Before starting to talk with Bullseye Camera Systems, we were utilizing every binocular, scope and spotting scope we had, to judge each shot taken. Every 10 or so shots we had to walk the 200-300 yards to cover previous shots with stickers to get clean readings. The back and forth trips down the range kills a good 15% to 50% of your day at the range. The Bullseye Camera Systems is just that… a target viewing system that sits near … What you’re missing….
I love chocolate… WAIT! Let me rephrase that. If I buy expensive chocolate for myself do not touch it if you plan to keep all your digits. Yes I love chocolate that much. I am not a chocolate connoisseur but I might call myself a chocolate snob at times. Where I live there are two Central Markets (they offer an unmatched selection of domestic and imported foods) near me that my family and I like to shop at for all of our non staple foods. My father and I have a game of sorts where we each pick out a chocolate bar and then try them out to help feed our love of chocolate. Last trip we made together we picked up a Vivani 100% Organic Dark Chocolate – Orange (70% cocoa). For 70% is it a little sweeter than I had expected and the aftertaste was a smooth hint … What you’re missing….
I upgraded to the iPhone 3GS early 2010 and I was very excited to have one because I knew how awesome they were (why yes! I am an Apple fan thank you for noticing.) I picked up the phone at my local carrier and then went straight to Best Buy to get a screen cover. First I’ll say I would have normally done a search on the screen cover product before I buy the phone but this was my first phone screen protector and I never really thought about it before that day. I walked in found a $15 cover (Zagg invisibleSHIELD iPhone 3GS front only cover) to put on my shiny new phone and I never really thought much about it until I stated seeing my lady friend tap the icons on my phone with her very sharp claws nails. I would find little finger nail imprints in the … What you’re missing….
