Pretty good shot of how it works with both 1x red dot and 6x rifle scope available simultaneously:

CMR-W Reticle:
CMR-Wreticle
This is a custom blended reticle that accounts for the lateral offset for the objective and works for both 556 and 762 out to 600M with 10mph and 20mph wind holds. I’ve personally shot this out to 600M very successfully with 223 55gr.

New Scope 2015

Pretty exciting stuff here. Unfortunately I can’t post anything about it.

Design engineer for this product.

My neighbor, Mark Cooper decided to build an airplane in his garage.

CooperAirplane

In an attempt to build something equally as cool in my garage I decided to tackle the venerable Kegorator.

Kegorator

I started with an old Sobe convenience store fridge.  To get maximum variety I went with cornelius kegs in the form of (2) traditional 5-gallon vessels and (1) 3-gallon smaller keg that would fit on the back shelf.  I have my CO2 located to the right of the 3-gallon keg on the back shelf.

Kegorator3

With so many kegs I decided to go with a CO2 manifold, which can be seen mounted to the front.  I have a 0-15psi gauge mounted to the left which allows me to monitor precise serving pressures.

Kegorator Thermometer Mount

To the right of the manifold is a vintage Cooper thermometer circa 1960.  I installed this with a mount I designed and built with an Objet.

Kegorator2

All 3 serving lines run up to a triple tap tower that I fitted with (2) Perlick Creamer faucets, Left and Right, and in the center position I have a Perlick Flow Control.  I must say, Perlicks are worth every cent.

Tapster

My final ‘major’ tweak was to create my own version of a Taplister setup.  I created “Tapster”.  This is a single PowerPoint slide set to run as a self executable, in my windows startup folder, and only on my 2nd monitor above the kegorator.  I designed it to look like a chalkboard.  It lists the specs of each beer I have on tap.  I even included what looks like logo stickers.  Thanks to my awesome interior designer wife for having one of her vendors make me the classy frame for the monitor.

Now, I realize this isn’t an airplane but it has increased my neighborhood popularity and I’m sure it’s boosted my bid to run for the open HOA position this year🙂
