Streamlight TLR-7A Released

Streamlight TLR-7A Released Well, it looks like the Streamlight TLR-7A has been released, but it’s not on the market quite yet (give it a week). As many of you know, my biggest complaint about the TLR-7 was the controls. The light color is less than optimal in my opinion, but I’d take it over the

CZ P-07 Initial Impressions

The CZ P-07, this has been one I’ve been excited to try out, but I’ve been putting it off to broaden my horizons…sort of. My very first firearm was a CZ 75B, since then I’ve been a fan of the metal framed CZs, but I’ve been hesitant to throw down the money on the P-07 due to the Omega trigger system. That said, the P-07 is the gun that has gotten a LOT of people not only into CZs, but into DA/SA hammer fired guns.

SCOTUS, Are You There?

Today the news broke that “The Supreme Court ruled that families of Sandy Hook can sue Remington.” This is a lie and the truth is both tragic and…well, a blessing. For those that aren’t familiar with the situation, the families affected by the Sandy Hook Shooting in 2012 began trying to sue Remington in 2015. In Connecticut Remington tried citing the¬†Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act as protection against the lawsuit.

Dunning, Kruger, Murphy, and You

Whether those shots end up on the target, or in the wall behind them is another discussion. The point is, you will miss. The world’s best marksman miss, the world’s best trainers miss, and they all miss without the adrenaline rush that comes from having your life threatened. What does that mean?
It means you can and/or will miss; especially if you’re only shooting at paper targets in your favorite isosceles stance that was overly stressed in your basic concealed carry course to get your permit.

They simply pluck our posts from your newsfeeds, which kills our reach, and kills the messages that we’re trying to broadcast.

Blue Alpha Gear Low Profile EDC Belt Review

This Blue Alpha Gear EDC belt is probably the simplest gun belt on the market. There’s no holes, there’s no complicated buckling procedure like a Formula 1 car seat, there’s just velcro and nylon. It’s cheap, low mass, sturdy, and it does it’s job.

For complete honesty, the logged hours I have with the belt on is not the total amount of time it was used. I was getting used to logging all of the data after use, so there’s definitely a lot of hours missing from the list. From the numbers I have though it’s been worn with a firearm for over 1,000 hours, and I haven’t been taking care of this thing in the slightest.

Flashlights, what matters?

As I said in the beginning, I’m fascinated with lights, especially with looking at the different emitters and seeing how different companies get the output that they’re getting. I think there’s a place for most lights out there and there’s a bunch out there that are well… Snake Oil. Kinda like those Gas Station Specials that claim to be 10,000 lumens while running 10 low quality LED bulbs.

LOX Black Diamond Tattoo Salve Review

I’m a skeptic when it comes to grooming products; a gigantic skeptic. Like toothpaste. Dentists make money off of bad teeth, why the hell are they recommending toothpaste? I digress. I have a close friend that uses LOX products on his tattoos that he swears by. When I got my memorial tattoo for Violet, I decided I would give it a try in the hope that it would keep the tattoo looking bright, colorful, and pretty; just like her.

As a side note, they named this particular salve after the American Coal Miners, which I find cool since my ancestors were coal miners in Pennsylvania.
