Derek’s notes on the Ares Defense ACR.
Derek talks about Blue Force Gear’s belt pouch system.
Derek takes a lockpicking class in San Francisco through Triple Aught Design’s CORE program. He also gets cuffed and thrown inside a trunk.
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 […]
3rd quarter 2013, I was anticipating a single stack 9mm from GLOCK. Imagine my disappointment when a retailer went live with their G42 accessories in December and leaked that it was a .380 ACP before GLOCK formally announced the release. GLOCK is a couple years behind, but I suppose no one was all that surprised. […]
I’ve dabbled with magazine pouches for the Kahr PM9 and found I like Dale Fricke’s horizontal pouch, Joab. I have it positioned on my left side with the bullet pointed up, at 9-10 o’clock – just behind the iliac crest. Easy to attach on and detach from the belt. I’m also using Fricke’s Jonathan concealment […]
Derek supplements Random Gun’s guide on how to remove the magazine disconnect on a Ruger SR22 pistol.
Derek, the moth, visits the lights of San Francisco. Didn’t get zapped.
Tired. This is all I am posting this evening. Nightforce BEAST and ATACR.
If you were at the races, San Francisco pride, or just elsewhere all together, then you weren’t at the Triple Aught Design and Imminent Threat Solutions Tactical social event this past weekend. Even without a TAD sale, the turn out was quite impressive. If you’re not familiar with ITS Tactical, it’s a rich source of […]
If you didn’t know, Gun Blogger Rendezvous VII registration is open. It’s a little under 90 days away! Are you going to make it? Be sure to mark your calendars, September 5 – 8. You may download and send off the form here. Check out what others had to say about the Gun Blogger Rendezvous […]
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 […]
Yay! The sun was out, and so was I. Went to the range and did more revolver work based on Southnarc’s PDF on the snubbie. Watching the video, my biggest challenge will be maintaining movement and scanning my surroundings for possible threats. I can already hear the folks crying, “MOOOON CLIPPPPS!”
