  • The AR-15 is without question the single most popular sporting rifle in the United States today. It stands head and shoulders above any other weapon.  In addition to being one of the most prolific weapons in the world, throw a stone at a gun store and odds are whoever it hits will have one.  Throw a hundred stones and you’ll hit 95 people that own at least one AR-15 weapon platform.  And while I don’t recommend throwing stones at people, I do recommend every gun owner have one.  This popularity is spurred on by a few different factors, the modularity means you’re unlikely to see two people with identical rifles, it’s a bit like an adult erector set. The design also puts the recoil of the action directly in line with the bore, making it silly easy to stay on target.  And with the US military employing the AR pattern since the Vietnam war, there is no shortage of parts, magazines or ammunition…..when there’s not a global pandemic raging of course.  Today It’s easier to list the companies that don’t make an AR15 pattern rifle than those that do.  So, in this flood of components and complete weapons, you really have to do something unique to stand out among the crowd.  Bear Creak Arsenal has cranked it up a notch with their new GPX upper receiver.

  • Allett Hybrid Card Wallet - Review

    Admittedly, a wallet is not something I put much thought into. There’s a new one in my stocking every other year, and it always gets filled with business cards, folded up notes I jotted down so I wouldn’t forget (and subsequently do forget), and about a half dozen payment methods and ID cards...Read More...

  • Mantis Blackbeard - Review

    With ammo prices still quite high, and the end of shortages seemingly nowhere in sight, nothing seems quite as valuable as good dry fire practice nowadays.  While there are many existing laser training options for dry fire training with your pistol, dry fire training with your rifle, specifically the AR-15, has been a bit of an issue...until now.  Enter the Mantis Blackbeard...Read More...

  • Nelson Holsters Dakota Defender - Review

    Hand made is a term used to describe a lot of things, and in my experience some of them are worthless. Others however, are special. Ferrari does not make the fastest cars, but from the moment you get in one, it’s different...Read More...

  • IWB Holster Comparison

    There are a few things in life that make me shake my head when people use anything but the best.  Brakes, tires, and holsters are at the top of that list. It drives me nuts to see people running around on recaps, and buying cheap brakes leaves me scratching my head as to why one would be so cavalier with their life on a daily basis. The third one usually merits an eye roll and a sigh however. Carrying a gun is not a thoughtless task, it's a massive responsibility...Read More...

  • Review: OTS Automatic Casing Catcher

    Brass cleanup is something not often thought about in today’s shooting world. When was the last time  you thought about your spent casings? Unless you’re a reloader, my guess is not recently. You send your  rounds down range, do your best to police up your spent brass or steel, and go on your way. I personally  haven’t thought much of it since the first time I picked up a spent case recently flung from an HK91 and wondering how exactly a rifle could make modern art so more...
