LEAKED: Video of FNH USA’s Semi-Auto M249

The above video is going to be played on a loop all weekend at FNH USA’s booth at the NRA Annual Meeting, but if you can’t make it to Tennesee (or just want to watch it in glorious high definition on your own time) then you can enjoy it here.

TTAG Podcast: Nick and Tyler Talking Texas, Guns, and the GLOCK 43

Do Silencers Reduce Muzzle Flash?


I was hanging out with the guys behind Dead Air Armament a week or so ago and while we may have been sleep deprived and slightly intoxicated, we had an idea. Silencers work great when it comes to sound reduction, but how well do they work in terms of flash reduction? Well, we were in a cabin in the middle of nowhere, had a bunch of rifles, a handful of silencers, and a reasonably competent photographer (yours truly), so we decided to try to capture the difference on film. The results were pretty interesting . . .
