Are you ready to take your home defense weapon or primary carry to the next level? Laser Devices believes a weapon light or laser should be purpose-built for the platform type. This thinking led it to designing the DBAL-PL white light/visible laser and IR Laser/IR Illuminator—an awesome laser/light combo that is legal for all civilians.
If the AR platform has a challenger going forward, it may not be the AK. Although not new, the bullpup design affords the versatility and shootability of an AR with the same length barrel, but an overall shorter length rifle. The bullpup seems to offer all of the advantages without any of the disadvantages. Last year, IWI saw success with its bullpup design—the Tavor. For 2014, Desert Tech is introducing its own bullpup—the Micro Dynamic Rifle (MDR).
America has fallen in love with the AR platform in recent years. Manufacturers have responded with additional calibers and an increased selection of options such as barrel twist, length and ways to hang more furniture. I am not sure if there is another revolution in store for the AR, but the next big evolution for the AR has arrived with Unique-ARs new custom and affordable AR handguard.
DoubleTap Defense made news last year with the introduction of its revolutionary DoubleTap Tactical Pocket Pistol. Adding to that success, DoubleTap has introduced a comfortable, slip-on grip Training Grip. The new Training Grip provides users with a more positive and comfortable range exercise experience while training with their DoubleTap pistol.

The beginning of the year is typically the time companies roll out their new products, which is worthy news. However, this time it is a new company that has piqued our interest. Southern Crossbow is built on the idea of integrating age-old American resourcefulness and perseverance with modern equipment. These one-of-a-kind, tactical crossbows are different than the typical genre of the traditional crossbow market. With a matte black finish instead of a camouflage print, Southern Crossbows incorporate the style and customizable traits of a tactical weapon’s platform with an innovative crossbow structure.

Stop the rumor mill and start the presses. Whether due to poor OPSEC or great marketing, the word has been leaking out for a few weeks that Glock will introduce a new .380 ACP version of its ultra popular pistols dubbed the Glock 42. The Shooting Hunting Outdoor Trade (SHOT) Show begins January 15th and is the traditional launch point. That being the case, Media Day runs on the 14th and Cheaper Than Dirt! will have its cameras rolling with the first range reviews of the Glock 42 and other popular models.
The gun world is far from national security; wait… The NSA has not been keeping its secrets all that well lately either. Several new models will be released in the next couple of weeks, but here is the first one to pique our interest here at Cheaper Than Dirt!

The lead smelting plant, Doe Run, in Herculaneum, Missouri, will cease operations in the next couple of weeks.
On the sixth day of Christmas, my true love that knows me so well stuffed my stocking with boxes of Federal Power-Shok. Nine pellets of #00 buckshot (approximately .33 caliber) will certainly get the job done—if it hits the intended target.
