Spring is awesome, so is the beginning of summer, but during the middle of summer and certainly the end, even just sitting outside is too hot.

One of the big takeaways from the 2014 SHOT Show was the new trigger system from Tac-Con. The Tac-Con 3MR trigger system is a drop-in trigger pack for AR-15s. Essentially, it adds a third position to the selector switch. In military speak, the third position would be the “happy” position. Civilians would more commonly refer to the third position as full auto. To be clear, the Tac-Con 3MR does not convert a semi-auto to full auto, but I am getting ahead of myself.
Team AK or Team AR? Now you can be kind of both with Rock River Arms’ (RRA) LAR-47 semi-automatic rifle. No, it is not an AK-47 wearing a Halloween costume. It is an AR-15 built from the ground up to reliably feed and shoot 7.62x39mm from (most) standard AK-47 magazines. It’s the perfect gun for the black rifle enthusiasts who hates the AK, but loves the 7.62x39mm round.
After posting a picture of the Tac-Con 3MR trigger from 2014 SHOT Show Media Day at the Range on Facebook, we received plenty of questions on the trigger.
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.

It wasn’t that long ago when it felt like men exclusively purchased the AR-15 rifle. Sure, we would shoot our husband’s, boyfriend’s or guy friend’s rifles, but up until about a year ago, not one woman shooter I know had purchased her own AR-15. Now I know plenty who researched, picked out and own their very own AR-15.
A new rail system for your rifle is slowly catching on. Officially announced to the public in July 2012, the KeyMod mounting system uses old principles to lock down rails and accessories. In collaboration between then General Manager of VLTOR Weapons Systems, Eric Kincel and Noveske Rifleworks, Noveske developed the KeyMod handguard.
When you think of world-class hunting opportunities, I’m betting Australia doesn’t come to mind. America and Africa probably are at the top of your list. Though, I suspect Australia’s hunting tradition does not run as deep, wide or thick as ours, there are still many Australians who hunt.
