Range Report: Ruger American — Ruger’s Go Anywhere Do Anything Rifle

Many of us are looking for a rifle that will be a jack of all trades. In the past, the Winchester .30-30 rifle came close with its wide use in hunting and law enforcement. A rifle for taking thin-skinned game, protecting the homestead from predators, and for recreational shooting is a desirable commodity. The Ruger American is a light, handy, powerful rifle that clearly fills the bill for most needs. The Ruger American has been a successful firearm, offering reliability and affordability, combined with excellent performance for American shooters.


Summertime Concealed Carry: Gear and Tips

You can blame global warming for all I care, but whatever the cause, summertime means warm temperatures. As the mercury heads north, concealing your firearm becomes more difficult. However, the threat is just as high or higher than it has ever been, and leaving my firearm at home is an option I refuse to consider. So, I began looking for warm weather solutions. If you are of the same mind, here are a few tips, tricks, and alternative ways to carry a firearm without telegraphing or sacrificing your safety.

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

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!
