Blackhawk Tac Lite jacket

Review: BLACKHAWK! Tac-Life Softshell Jacket

Recently, BLACKHAWK! released a new and updated collection of holsters, clothes and accessories. I was able to get my hands on the Tac-Life Softshell jacket just prior to it being “officially” available to the public. The mid-summer heat of the Carolinas was not the most ideal climate to test even the lightest weight jacket. Luckily, I was about to escape the heat and humidity of the south and head out to the more arctic climes of Norway and Iceland.

Using the Sling

An old saying is that precision demands lubrication. This means lots of practice. I have taught quite a few shooters in offhand rifle shooting, and in the end, the dedication of the shooter means as much as the skill of the instructor.

Drop-Leg Subloads and You

Sometimes you want to carry more gear than you can put on your chest rig, while still being able to grab that gear in a hurry. One way to do this is with additional pouches mounted on your legs, called a drop-leg subload. 

Everything Tastes Better with Bacon

Do you like bacon? We sure do. You know what tastes better with bacon? Water, shooting a .22LR SCAR Clone, and America!

Dual Ceramic Water Filter Bag

Dual Ceramic Water Filter Bag

The Just Water For You High Country filtering water bag can filter up to 10 gallons of water per hour. It is perfect for camping, natural disasters, survival, or your bug-out-bag. It rolls up into a compact size and only weighs about two pounds.

The ceramic filter used in the High Country was developed to be the simplest water filter in the market and it is so easy to use; no complicated instructions involved!

Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health has tested the filter and found that it is very successful in filtering out bacteria from any water source.
I like Just Water for You (JWT) because they donate a small portion of each purchase to humanitarian causes all over the world.

BLACKHAWK! American Flag Patch

I came across a comment the other day from a customer saying he wished we sold these American flag patches. I pointed him in the right direction to where they are on our site, “Gifts and Everything Else.” Did you know we had that category? If not, I highly suggest you browse there. We have some fun things in that category.

This particular American flag patch, made by Blackhawk Products, has a Velcro back, so it will hook onto your cap or MOLLE vest. It is black and tan and measures 2×3 inches.

ISSC MK22 Sport Semi Automatic Rifle

So you’re not a Navy Seal, but sometimes like to pretend? Instead of paying over $2,000 for a SCAR, you could get the ISSC MK22 Sport semi automatic rifle in .22 Long Rifle with a FDE finish. The basic features of the ISSC MK22 Sport are a 16” barrel, a 22-round capacity magazine, synthetic stock, and weighs 7.49 pounds. It has metal parts, and feels like a centerfire rifle, but is not as expensive to shoot.

Robert Farago from says, “If you worship at the altar of tacticool, the MK22 is all that and a bunch of bullets besides.”

Here is another product listed under “Gifts and Everything Else.” Tactical bacon. Yep. That’s right. Tactical bacon. CTD Martin brought some back for us from SHOT Show 2010, so we got a sneak peak of it. We actually popped it in the microwave before eating and sure enough, tastes like bacon!

I have a feeling it makes perfect zombie bait.

CMMG Tac Bac is fully cooked and ready to eat. It has a ten plus year shelf life, and comes in nine ounce cans. We sell it by the 12-can case.

Everything tastes better with bacon. Get ya some!

Blackhawk! Must have Products

Former Navy SEAL Mike Noell started BLACKHAWK! in 1993. While Mike was crossing a minefield in enemy territory, he was lugging around a huge pack that eventually failed, spilling equipment all over the explosive ground. He told another operator, “If I get out of this one alive, I will make this stuff the way it needs to be built so none of my buddies have to go through this.” When he retired from service, he did exactly that. Today BLACKHAWK! maintains a network of loyal dealers, and produces some of the finest tactical equipment ever made. We recently came across a couple of items that we thought might interest folks.


Shell Storage

Do you often find yourself in gunfights and low on OO-buck? Shotgun shells can be bulky and take up all the room on your tactical vest. BLACKHAWK! has come up with the perfect solution to your tact-vest real estate woes. The BLACKHAWK! 55-round bandoleer allows you to carry maximum firepower, with minimum effort. This really is a perfect way to carry around extra ammunition for your tactical shotgun. Perfect for 3-Gun match competitors or bird hunters who see a lot of action. If you are going to be doing a lot of shooting and don’t feel like lugging out your bulky tactical vest, the BLACKHAWK! shotgun bandoleer is perfect for an afternoon out in the field. Digging through a bulky dump bag for your shotgun shells can cause slower loading times. In my experience, having your shells neatly secured across your chest is the professional and most effective way to carry your lead. This bandoleer can hold either 12-gauge or 20-gauge ammunition. Heavy-duty nylon 2.25” military pistol belt webbing ensures the bandoleer will last a lifetime. There really does not seem to be a better way to carry around a lot of shotgun ammunition.

Tactical Hydration

Side Hydration Pouch

For those of you who are going on a short patrol, or a quick run around the track while wearing your battle rattle, the S.T.R.I.K.E. and MOLLE compatible BLACKHAWK! side hydration pouch is perfect when you do not want 100 ounces of water on your back weighing you down. The pouch also has a quick disconnect feature that allows you to switch effortlessly from one pouch to another. BLACKHAWK!’s patented speeds clips make it easy to mount the pouch on the side, back or front of your web belt. Microban antimicrobial technology protects the inner bladder from bacteria and other germs. Available in black or tan, the BLACKHAWK! Side Hydration Pouch is perfect for when you do not want to get bogged down and still carry around an entire Liter of H2O.
BLACKHAWK! products continue to be an industry leader in all things tactical. Whether it is for military, law enforcement, or the tactical enthusiast, Blackhawk gear delivers superior quality, with field-tested results every time.

Paddle Holsters

Paddle holsters are very popular due to the comfort and the ease with which you can take them on and off, and they do have drawbacks. Paddle holsters rely on friction between the paddle and your pants and undergarments to remain in place.
