Kenai Chest Holster Review

If you spend any amount of time in the mountains, you'll likely be wearing a backpack. And if you are spending any amount of time in the mountains...you're also likely to be carrying some sort of sidearm for personal protection.
Bipod Shootout Review
By Justin Crossley, Rokslide Moderator
A while back, I had a new 300 Win Mag built as a medium to long range hunting rifle. As I was finishing up the project, I started looking at possible bipod options. I searched the internet and talked to some buddies but I really couldn't find all the information I was looking for. I looked at a bunch of manufacturer websites and read their descriptions, but still wasn't satisfied because I was looking for real world comparisons. That's when I decided the best way to get the information I wanted was to do a side by side test of my own. With that idea in mind, I pitched the idea to Robby and Ryan for a Rokslide bipod shootout. They both thought it would be valuable to the members and so the fun began.
Elk Hunting with the Cooper Model 52
by Matt Cashell, Rokslide Staff
Earlier this year, Rokslide Editor Robby Denning asked me if I wanted to hunt with the Cooper Model 52. Well, of course I would!
Robby already had the Excaliber in 7mm Magnum in the deer woods, and he knew I would love to try it pursuing elk in my home state of Montana. You can read about his experience here
I am lucky to live right down the road from Cooper's manufacturing facility near Stevensville, MT and Cooper's own Glenn May showed me around the facility. I did short write-up on that tour and my intitial experiences testing the rifle here
After that project, I couldn't wait to get the rifle in the hunting fields.
Review: Cooper Model 52 Long Range Rifle
By Sam Millard, Long Range Editor
There's no getting around the fact that if you want to hunt at extended distances, your gear better be up to it. Rifles capable of the precision required for this task aren't likely to be pulled off the rack at your local sporting goods store. With the popularity of long range hunting, some rifle manufacturers are offering versions of their existing lineup that are suitable for precision work, near and far. Cooper Firearms recently released their rendition of that rifle with the Model 52 Long Range.
