Gear Review: Warne TW1 25 in/lbs. T-15 Torque Wrench

For many shooters the simple mention of “T-15” brings fond recollections of self-installed scopes successfully on their favorite tack driver they’ve used out in the field or at the range. To others, the thought brings back nightmares of stripped rings and receivers, slipping scopes, crushed tubes, and other avoidable installation incidents. More often than not, […]

Five Ways to Reuse Spent Cartridges

Where there’s smoke, there’s fire — where there’s gunfire, there will be spent casings. Okay, so not in all cases, but the vast majority of firearms leave you with an empty cartridge casing after the shot has been fired.

Sometimes it takes your own two hands – or a specific tool – to finish off a bird. Adrenal Line’s original The Finisher (above) is […]

Gear Review: K Rounds OWB Pancake Holster

When I’m out and about, I carry a compact sidearm in an inside-the-waistband (IWB) holster. When I’m at the range, I switch to an outside-the-waistband (OWB) holster, strapping-on my SIG SAUER P226R EE with a rail-mounted light. Truth be told . . . I didn’t want to pony-up the cash for a new light. So […]
