What Would the World be Like Without Magpul and PMAG 30s?

If a few lawmakers in Colorado get their way, we could be forced to find out. In their zeal to jump on the anti-gun agenda, lawmakers in Colorado have proposed banning the sale or manufacture of high-capacity magazines. The law would go well beyond Colorado’s borders by banning the manufacture of products to be sold out-of-state.

The Loss of an American Hero – Chris Kyle

John 15:13
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

Navy SEALs have fought and died on many battlefields across the globe. I have known a number of SEALs, worked with many, called some shipmate and even earned the recognition of being considered a friend by others.

Archery—The Ultimate Survival Skill

Given the skyrocketing price of guns and ammunition these days, it’s no wonder people are flocking to the stick and string. That’s right; archery is on the rise. In fact, it has been for years.

I just listened to the feel-good press conference about another so-called Assault Weapon Ban. It was sickening to hear the useless babble from the uneducated, uninformed lawmakers in this country until the logic struck me like a lightening bolt and really opened my eyes.

The new LaserLyte® LT-223

The LaserLyte Unveils the LT-223, a Cost-Effective .223 Training Cartridge

With rising prices in .223 ammunition, it can get expensive to practice aim and sight-in your new rifle with live ammunition. That’s where this little beauty comes in.

Using a the LaserLyte Trainer Target, you can see exactly where your shots place. The LT-223 costs around $139.99, which is comparable to 500 rounds of live ammo, but instead of 500 shots, you get up to 3,000 shots out of the LaserLyte before you have to change the batteries.

Glock 30S Aiming

Glock 30S in .45 ACP — Range Report

Ok, a bit of a disclaimer. Glock unveiled its 30S today, and I was at the front of the line with every intention of putting it through its paces. However, the lovely Boulder City, Nevada treated us to 25-degree temps with 30 mph winds bringing the wind chill down to about 15°F. By the time everything was open and the line was ready to shoot, I was numb with cold and my fingers were burning at the touch. And yes, I would like some cheese with that whine.

SPS pistols display all the attention to detail, precision metal-to-metal fit, high tolerances and quality craftsmanship one would expect in a custom pistol.

Walther PPQ M2 striker fired Pistol

SHOT 2013 Preview: Walther PPQ M2

Walther’s new PPQ M2 really has my attention. In fact, I think I am going to make it my first stop—and potentially first purchase—at the 2013 SHOT Show in Las Vegas. ~ Dave Dolbee

The PPQ M2 is a true breakthrough in ergonomics for self-defense handguns. The sculpted grip meshes smoothly into the hand. The trigger is one of the finest ever on a polymer, striker-fired handgun. The styling is elegant and trim. What’s more, the Walther PPQ M2 has been updated for 2013 with a new traditional reversible mag release button. The leading edge just took another step forward.
