There was a recent kerfuffle on the JTT Facebook Page regarding a picture that I posted of the TIHK (Tiny Inconspicuous Handcuff Key).

Some readers seemed to disapprove of its existence, its lawfulness, or maybe just its posting. There was some concern that it could pose a danger to law enforcement, a sentiment with which I wholeheartedly agree – which is part of why I post about such things…

Those who are familiar with tactical rails and triggers will recognize these iconic symbols at once. Those who are ignorant of gun culture probably won’t. An anecdote: a few months ago I picked up a Magpul rail mounted sling attachment. It’s nothing more than a loop of steel that attaches to a rail.

Review: Wheeler Engineering Professional Leveling Reticle System

| Technology, Gun Accessories | Author: Denis Zalesnov

Wheeler PRLSWheeler PRLS

For years we pretty much mounted our scopes the old fashioned way, setting our rifle between two sandbags to level it out, placing the scope in the rings and using our eye to “level” the horizontal bar of the reticle and then adjusting the vertical component until it was perpendicular to the axis of the rifle.

While it worked, it was time consuming and not always perfect. Since that time, several inexpensive reticle leveling systems have come on the market that work well for the average shooter who mounts only one or two scopes a year. However, for professionals who set up scopes for paying customers, a faster and more accurate system is required. Wheeler Engineering designed their Professional Reticle Leveling System with dealers and gunsmiths in mind (and folks like us who like neat time-saving tools).
