  • Sentry Armorer's Kit gun cleaning Things That Don’t Suck: Sentry Armorer’s Kit -   “Oh cool, a cleaning kit.” That was what I thought when Sentry sent me the Sentry Armorer’s Kit. I can always use a cleaning kit. Sentry makes all sorts of stuff in the tactical world, this includes the Gunnar belt, a fabulous shotgun pouch, and now I realize some awesome firearm maintenance gear. When […]
  • SOG Kiku XR folding flipper pocket knife EDC Things That Don’t Suck: SOG Kiku XR Blackout Folder - This is a knife I shouldn’t like very much. I prefer to carry something smaller, lightweight, more pocketable. I tend to like a slim, no-frills drop point blade. My EDC needs don’t usually extend much beyond opening a cardboard box with a grin printed on it or maybe slicing through the packaging on a new […]
  • Silencer Review: Griffin Armament Revolution 45 (MOD3) Pistol Suppressor [VIDEO] - Griffin Armament’s Revolution 9 and 45 silencers were the first available with a modular length feature. Now in its third generation, the Rev 45 still represents a top performing pistol suppressor with solid features and some useful caliber flexibility.

  • AB Suppressor Raptor (image courtesy JWT for thetruthaboutguns.com) Silencer Review: AB Suppressor Raptor Silencer - The Aerocharger Ballistics (AB Suppressor) Raptor suppressor is one of those rare examples of elegant innovation in the silencer industry. Despite the company having several patents, there’s nothing here that’s earth shatteringly new. Instead, much of what’s here makes me wonder why I haven’t seen all of this put together on more cans. And that right […]
  • Things That Don’t Suck: Caldwell E-Max Power Cords - I don’t know about you, but I use different hearing protection for different environments. And I usually default to the lightest, least obtrusive option that gets the job done based on where I’ll be shooting. I usually double up indoors with in-the-ear plugs and good over-the-ear muffs. But when I’m outdoors, I go with something […]
  • Bushmaster DM2S trigger Trigger Review: Bushmaster DM2S Dedicated Marksman 2 Stage Trigger - My Parts Bin AR10’s mil spec-ish trigger certainly needed an upgrade, so when Dan said he had a new AR trigger to review, I was first in line. In went the Bushmaster’s new DM2S Designated Marksman 2 Stage trigger. It turned out to be a solid upgrade. The two-stage trigger is far and away the […]
  • Video Range Review: PINEWORLD K5 Biometric Gun Safe - That’s right, a range review of a nightstand-sized gun safe. Why? Because I shot it. A lot. Watch the video embedded above, or click HERE to view it on Rumble. Big thanks to Silencer Shop for helping with our video production! They have the best prices and the easiest, most streamlined suppressor buying process in the […]
  • Tops Knives Tom Brown Tracker Knife (image courtesy JWT for thetruthaboutguns.com) Gear Review: The TOPS Knives Tom Brown Tracker #1 Fixed Blade Knife - I do a little work in Idaho and a whole lot of hunting there, too. About a year ago I stopped by Tops Knives to pick their brains, and pick up a Tom Brown Tracker. I like big knives. Big knives like bowies or those simple blade shapes common among the early Quebecois traders and […]
  • TiTech Arms 1022 Chassis Rail For Ruger 10/22 Things That Don’t Suck: TiTech Arms 1022 Chassis Rail For Ruger 10/22 Rifles - What do you do with that Ruger 10/22 rifle that’s been sitting in the back of your safe? One way to give it possibilities beyond the standard stock configuration is with an aftermarket chassis. TiTech Arms (formerly RTI Manufacturing) gives you two options. Their 1022 Chassis Rail comes in two flavors. One has an AR […]
  • Crimson Trace Rail Master Pro light laser green Gear Review: Crimson Trace Rail Master Pro Light and Laser - When Crimson Trace sent me the CTS-1400, they also sent a Rail Master Pro. The Rail Master Pro is a combination laser and light system that predictably mounts to the rail of your weapon. It’s designed for handguns, but like most things, the Rail Master Pro can mount to anything with a Picatinny rail. Crimson […]
