Magpul Teases A Friday New Product Release

Magpul is a company big enough that they never seem to be the type to dump a press release in my inbox. Instead, they just rely on their massive, and well-deserved fanbase to spread the word. Well that and the occasional short, cryptic, Youtube video. Released only a few minutes ago (at least as I […]

Gun Review: Mossberg 500 Retrograde Shotgun

In a world where we can cover just about anything with Picatinny rails, it’s nice to see the industry slow down and take a moment to simplify things. Don’t get me wrong, I love my rails, my M-LOK handguards, my lasers, lights, and optics. However, there’s a real appeal to the simple nature of the […]

Gear Review: Swampfox Blade 1×25 Prism Sight

What is the point of a 1X prism sight? Some will most certainly point out that a 1X prism is a red dot replacement for those with astigmatism. The dot in a prism sight won’t streak, blur and go crazy like a standard red dot for those who suffer from astigmatism. That’s true, but a […]

Obscure Object of Desire: Intratec TEC-DC9M

Let’s be real here; this isn’t an attractive, well-crafted or particularly effective firearm by any objective measure. We’ll go into why, but the TEC-DC9M is not a great gun. Why, then, is it an obscure object of desire? For me, it’s because this gun was so hated by gun control proponents like Diane Feinstein. It […]

Gear Review: Athlon Optics Argos BTR Gen2 1-8×24 Rifle Scope

Do you remember when optics were pretty much divided into either cheap crap or very expensive, high performing glass? Thank God for the powers of free market capitalism that have brought us a happy middle ground in the world of optics. Companies like Athlon Optics are producing high-quality optics at great prices, scopes like the […]

Ammo Review: Winchester PDX1 Defender 12 Gauge

Buck and ball loads have a pretty long history of success in the United States. However, that success was primarily from 1776 to the 1860s. New buck and ball loads haven’t been quite as popular since the invention of modern shotshells and cartridge ammunition. Several years ago, Winchester introduced the PDX1 Defender load, which introduced […]

Gear Review: Mantis X10 Elite Training System

I’ve had a Mantis X10 Elite training system for quite some time now and I’ve been trying to figure out how to write this review. It’s not easy to fully encapsulate what this little device can do. It’s an intimidating prospect, and my goal is to try and capture all the ways you can train […]

Gun Review: Ruger PC Charger 9mm Pistol

Ruger was kind enough to send me their new PC Charger before the public announcement and it’s been hard to keep quiet about it. Finally, though, I can write about it, talk about it, and share my thoughts on this interesting new firearm. The Ruger PC Carbine has been quite a successful rifle. Ruger was […]
