Best Benjamin Trail NP XL 1500 Review

If you’ve found your way here, chances are you’re wanting to learn all about the Benjamin Trail NP XL 1500, right? Well, good. Several summers ago a buddy of mine recommended this gun to me and I’ve been hooked on it ever since.

Leading 2014 Ecosmart Tankless Water Heater Reviews

About a month ago the time finally came when my water heater gave out and I ended up having to buy a new one. Since my traditional tank didn’t last as long as I had expected to, I decided to go for a tankless water heater after hearing all kinds of good things about them; I couldn’t be any happier with my decision.The exact tankless water heater that I purchased is the Ecosmart ECO 27. You’ll be amazed at all of the great features and benefits that it provides for you and your family.

Ecosmart Tankless Water Heater Review

The switch over from a traditional tank to my Ecosmart Eco 27 was one of the easiest, most enjoyable things my family and I have ever done. We’re a pretty big family considering there’s 6 of us and before we had that same problem every family has – fighting over who gets the next shower. Nobody likes waiting around for the water to warm back up, am I right?

Well, going tankless solves this problem; the Eco 27 provides endless hot water by heating it up as it’s needed rather than storing it. Contrary to belief, it actually heats up to the right temperature really fast, which means no waiting around. Also, the tank is only on as it supplies warm water and proceeds to shut off afterwards. The only thing you need to know about that aspect of the water heater is that it ends up saving you a lot of money. I mean, clearly, if something is off 99% of the time it’s gonna result in energy savings.


Normally, you would see pros and cons, right? But not with Ecosmart tankless water heaters; there’s only pros when it comes to these machines. In order not to bore you to death with tons of reading, here’s a list of all of the great features you’ll receive when you switch over.

  • Up to 60% off your water heating bill
  • Endless Hot Water
  • Set the exact temperature you desire
  • Lifetime Warranty (most models)
  • Reduced Waste
  • Extra 12 ft. of Space

In order to get a really good idea about what the Ecosmart Eco 27 is and how it works watch this informative Ecosmart tankless water heater review video. It actually happens to be the video that encouraged me to go out and purchase this model. Anyways, I hope that my review was of help!

2014 Review of The Gamo Big Cat

This is one of my favorite air rifles of all time and for good reason. At a reasonable $100 price tag you  can own a bb gun that is perfect for target practice and both large and small pest control. This air rifle will kill anything from small mice to a squirrel. The Gamo Big Cat takes 0.177 pellets and can shoot up to 1250 fps. This is extremely fast and about as far as a bb gun goes in terms of speed and distance.

Since this bad boy can shoot for long range the geniuses over at Gamo made sure to include a 4x magnification scope that works perfectly for this gun. A ventilated rubber pad is also included on the back of the stock to decrease the feel of recoil for a smoother shot. To make things simple this rifle has a single cocking system to make shooting less of a chore and more fun.

This feature also helps out when hunting small game because if you miss you don’t have to sit around pumping the bb gun back up. If you’re worried about the Big Cat being too heavy, don’t be. This air rifle weighs barely over 6 pounds so it is very easy to carry around. While I wouldn’t recommend this bb gun to little kids it should be fine for anyone over 16 years of age. Always make sure to have parent permission before using any air rifle to ensure maximum safety.
