Crossing M1 Garands

The CMP Starts Release of 100,000 M1 Garands!

Recently, The Shooter’s Log ran a story, detailing President Trump’s order to go a step further than his predecessor and actually release the 100,000 or so 1911s currently being stored by the U.S. Army to the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP). Several of you left your email and asked to be informed as soon as the CMP began taking orders.

You all know the big man on campus the M1 Garand, well this week we are going to play with the little kid on the block. The younger brother who gets left out of all the fun. However, be careful little brother can fight too. As we know, looks can be deceiving-as is the case of this little giant.

ECWS Modular Sleep System with Camo Cover

Product Review: ECWS Modular Sleep System

The U.S. military surplus ECWS modular sleeping system solves all of your sleeping bag needs. It goes from summer to winter camping and keeps you dry in all weather. It transitions from a recreational camping sleeping bag to hardcore bug-out use. The package includes four pieces: a black warmer-weather bag, an OD green bag, a camo bivy cover, and a black compression bag. When used together, the sleep system keeps you warm to -30 degrees Fahrenheit. The bivy cover protects you and your bag from getting wet from morning dew or rain. All the pieces fit together by heavy-duty snaps. Each piece has dual-sided zippers with inside zipper pulls. Both the black and OD green bags have bungee cords to tighten the hood around your head.
