Gear Review: Revic PMR 428 Smart Rifle Scope

It was only a matter of time before somebody incorporated a full-on ballistics computer into a rifle scope. Apparently that time is now, and that somebody is Revic. As Revic is young and this is their first product, my expectations were tempered. Turns out they didn’t need to be. The PMR 428 delivers on its […]

Gear Review: Etymotic GunSport PRO Electronic Earplugs

Electronic hearing protection is the solution to hearing range commands, conversation, and ambient sounds while simultaneously protecting from loud noises. Founded in 1983, Etymotic Research has been designing hearing aids and earphones almost as long as I’ve been alive, and is one of the few U.S.-based hearing aid manufacturers. They know ears, hearing, and hearing […]

Gear Review: Daniel Defense DD WAVE 3D Printed Suppressor

When we hear “3D printed” we usually think of flimsy plastic, but Daniel Defense‘s new DD WAVE suppressor is made via a process called direct metal laser sintering.

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 […]

Gear Review: Dead Air Wolf-9SD Suppressor

Turns out you don’t need a submachine gun to put Dead Air’s new Wolf-9SD to good use. They’ve new-schooled the old school subgun can with a couple of modern features that make it a solid choice for any 9mm in your arsenal. At 7.58 inches long and 1.618 inches in diameter, the Wolf is fatter […]

Gear Review: Blue Force Gear Vickers Slings

Slings serve four purposes: they stabilize your rifle when shooting, retain it when you need to punch someone in the face go “hands-on” or transition to your pistol, and help you carry it comfortably. A few months ago, Blue Force Gear sent me the Vickers Combat Application Sling in black and coyote, the same sling with […]
