    Rhett's set-up/accessory hacks for optimizing a bird's head.

    Here he is running a TAC 13.

    Watch the beginning of the vid and see how fast he runs the Black Aces gun.

    I watched these videos tonight and was fascinated. Not sure I subscribe to the notion of a butt stock being completely superfluous, but there is a lot of interesting stuff to think on and experiment with. Would really enjoy spending a few hours on the range with him.
    Likes pretty much everything in every caliber.

    We've started referring to him (as a term of endearment) as "The Space Wizard".

Maybe I missed some of it, as i skipped through some, but that stuck with me and sort of soured me on the vid.
    To be fair, at the time he made that vid, nobody had seen any other way of running one of those shockwaves other than at hip-level, and he hadn't yet been exposed to push-pull recoil management so bringing it up to eye level to use the sights was a nonstarter. And let's face it, the birds-head grip wasn't intended to change how the gun was held, it was meant to add sufficient OAL to make a 14"-bbl 'shotgun' into a 'firearm'. So it's understandable that, at the time, he'd equate them with a traditional 'cruiser'-style PGO. I was in pretty much full agreement with him at the time (and I still am for the traditional PGO gun), and it was only Rhett's work that changed my mind on the potential of the Shockwave-style guns.

    Rhett is highly skilled and spends ALOT of time on niche' problems.


    I think the way he works the Enigma is pretty interesting.

    Rhett’s videos are what makes me occasionally regret not buying the Remington Tac-13 I passed on at a gun show early last year. I’m not sure if Remington discontinued them or what because now they’re on gunbroker for close to $2k each. Prior to seeing Rhett’s work and technique, I looked at the gun and just saw a great way to blow off half your support hand.
