Purpose accomplished. I didn’t catch the SHOT Show crud, had a good time, good food, and hung out with some great folks. While nothing in particular excited me, there were several products that caught my eye. For the last several years, Next Level Training only offered a Shot Indicating Resetting Pistol resembling a Glock 17. However, in […]
As far as I’m concerned, it was another day at the range. My notable observations were isolated to Ruger’s LC9s, and Geissele’s AK-47 trigger. Ruger released the LC9s sometime in July 2014 and announced it’s Pro variation earlier in December 2014. I haven’t shot either prior to this trip, so it’s new to me. I’m aware there […]
Preparation for SHOT Show? That’s funny. I just know I’ll be there Sunday through Wednesday attending Industry Day (Yes. I’m surprised, too), take some photos, and reunite with some friends. Just have fun. I’ll be back at work the next day. Woo. I’ve read about most of the rumors and anticipate it will be relatively […]
Derek discusses his force-on-force training progress and reaffirms his greatest weakness is not in physical or firearms training, but verbal acumen.
Derek buys another P3AT and observes some changes.
Derek adds to MouseGunAddict’s thoughts on pocket carry pants.
Derek, the moth, visits the lights of San Francisco. Didn’t get zapped.
Turtle Skin Turtle Skin manufactures a variety of protective equipment: body armor, gloves, snake protection, etc. The BladeTect shirt caught my eye initially. It’s like a lightweight chain mail to minimize the threat against blades and sharp cuts. It’s also breathable and appears/feels it would be comfortable to wear. Also photographed below are Snake Gaiters, […]
This is the coolest year I’ve encountered in Las Vegas, NV. I must admit, however, I’m not a very good barometer to determine what cold really is. I was prepared, so I managed quite well. Minus 33 Merino wool base layer, Ice Breaker Merino wool t-shirt, silk sock liner, Darned Tough Merino wool socks, Triple […]
Among the firearms I took out recently was a Ruger SR22. If you recall, I posted a short disassembly video of the SR22 from SHOT Show 2012. I finally purchased one this week. Probably my first new handgun purchase in awhile. First several rounds seem to have POI consistency issues; however, after about 100 rounds, […]
Chase from Deep Conceal LLC, approached me to check out their line of firearm concealed carry holsters. Wasn’t quite certain what I could offer considering I’m pretty happy with my current setup, but I had a choice between their shoulder holster or sun visor holster. The shoulder holster can be described as a rib-band with […]
This afternoon, I stayed in and installed an AEK Trigger on Shenanigun’s Smith & Wesson M&P 9mm pistol. Courtesy of APEX Tactical Specialties, the addition of the AEK trigger provides a reduction in pre-travel and over-travel resulting in a perception of an improved trigger pull. This trigger may stand alone, or further enhance APEX Tactical […]
I used to enjoy cleaning my firearms, but then a took an arrow to the knee. Don’t shoot me in the knee; I know this/that meme is old (Internet time). If you’re a new gun owner, or have few firearms, cleaning firearms post range-time isn’t an issue. For some, it’s an enjoyable experience. Then there […]
The .22LRs were Remington subsonic rounds. Sounds like a sewing machine.
As a gift, I purchased a Moon Clip Tool several months ago. The Moon Clip Tool strips and loads moon clips! One arbor is provided for the caliber of your choice. Extra arbors are $5.00 each. Clint Walker, the gentleman behind the Moon Clip Tool, makes a quality product and ships out fast. I may […]
The rainy days were bound to show up. It’s been a wet week and it appears some drivers forget what it’s like operating their vehicle in not-so-sunny weather. My commute home on Friday took 1 hour and 45 minutes as opposed to the normal 40 minutes. On rainy days, or most days for that matter, […]
