The news hasn’t been good these last few days. It’s easy to get caught up in the hour-by-hour, sometimes minute-by-minute reports of quarantines, shut-downs and shelter-in-place orders and let it overwhelm you.
While that’s certainly natural and perfectly understandable, it’s important to manage your intake. Step away from the news and do something else occasionally to improve your mental hygiene.
Go for a walk. Clean a gun. Throw a ball in the back yard with your kid or your dog.
Toward that end, here are three videos we’ve come across recently that are worth a look, if for no other reason than to focus your attention elsewhere for a while.
The DU video above is like all of their videos…lavishly and beautifully produced. You don’t have to be a duck hunter to enjoy it. Being a dog lover helps. It will make you long to be in an Arkansas duck blind trying to keep warm as the sun comes up and the first ducks start to light in the rice field in front of you.
If that’s not for you, here’s one from the SHOT Show — an event that seems like it happened about 1000 years ago now.
Finally, SilcencerCo recently put out this video about their Omega 36M modular suppressor. It handles everything from .223 Remington to .338 Lapua in a couple of configurations.
You may not own a suppressor or even want one. But SilencerCo does a good job on their videos. The Omega 36M is almost endlessly configurable for use on everything from a GLOCK 19 to a long action precision rifle.
This one might even take you back to the good old days when a little thing like tax stamp wait times seemed somehow important.
In short, hang in there. Things may get worse before they start to get any better, but they will get better. Until then, we’ll try to bring you some content that’s less dire than the news of the day as and when we can.
And as always, thanks for reading.
