Derek’s notes on the Ares Defense ACR.
Derek talks about Blue Force Gear’s belt pouch system.
This product was received to review with no arrangement to return it. The product page and the manufacture’s website is linked in two locations of this post. The last time I donned on a hybrid holster, it was the Crossbreed SuperTuck with cowhide in a combat cut and metal clips for the Glock 19. I […]
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 buys another P3AT and observes some changes.
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 […]
I came across an article written by Aaron Cowan at Moderno that really described a shift in my training paradigm three years ago. Cowan writes, “All things considered, the case for a sedentary life or simply practicing the gun and not strengthening the body is not just weak, it’s effectively dead.” It’s particularly intriguing when […]
Derek supplements Random Gun’s guide on how to remove the magazine disconnect on a Ruger SR22 pistol.
Derek adds to MouseGunAddict’s thoughts on pocket carry pants.
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.
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 […]
