Hey everyone,

I just got finished painting up a Fett inspired Crye AirFrame for their SHOT Show auction. If you're at SHOT, you can check it out at the Crye booth Tuesday and Wednesday before it goes home with a new owner. I'm hoping it raises a good amount for the charities.

Lol, that's Jango...;) I won't admit to being a Star Wars fan so I'll blame that bit of knowledge on my kids.:p

The big question I had (and everyone who saw them), was 'can you shoot properly with the Chops installed?' The answer is 'yes'. The Chops themselves are rigid, and do not flex at all. They're like small pieces of the helmet shell. They can, however, flex on their mounting tabs, which also helps when putting on the helmet over a headset. They'll flex a bit outwards or inwards. When shouldering the rifle as normal, a slight cant inwards (or, a tilt of the head) puts a standard height sight in front of the eye. The Chop is sandwiched between the stock and pressed up against the cheek, and only adds its thickness of about .3". Don't get me wrong - it's not as comfortable or convenient as shooting without the Chops, but it's definitely doable once you figure out what you need to do to adapt, and practice that way.
