Larry Vickers went to Russia where he went to the range with Russian special forces to do some confidence drills. I don’t recommend you try this with your buddies at the range.
There’s a lot of tactical gear and doodads out on the market, especially when it comes to magazine carriers. Now there are some pretty slick mag carriers out that help with fast mag changes. This new mag carrier from Warfytr Equipment is quite different however. With traditional carriers you pull the mag up and out of the carrier to reload, the Warfytr Equipment holds the magazine so that it hangs from the carrier and you pull the magazine down to release it.
Two things I always try to have on me at all times is a good blade and a good light, well SOG Specialty Knives and Tools put both of those together with their Bladelight Folder LED Knife Flashlight. It features 6 LEDs molded into the handle as well as a 3.9inch steel folding blade. The black handle is made out of glass-reinforced nylon with a no-slip grip. The light is powered by two AAA batteries and puts out 37 lumens of light and is water resistant up to 1 meter up to 30 minutes. It also comes with a limited lifetime warranty.
They currently go for $49 with free shipping at Amazon.com.
A resourceful Redditor posted this nifty round count indicator modification they did to an AK-47 magazine. It’s so simple it’s actually pretty brilliant.
Open up your mag and drill your hole first. Put it back together and load 6 rounds. Make scratches to indicate which part of the follower shows, repeat this with 3 rounds. This will tell you where the diagonal needs to be. Put a base layer of white, the use masking tape to mark your line, paint the yellow, switch your tape to cover the other side and paint red. Clear coat to minimize wear and there ya go.
Accessory maker CAA Tactical is said to have supplied the IDF with tens of thousands of their rifle bipod grips according to IsraelDefense.com. It’s no surprise, CAA Tactical is based in Israel. From their press release:
According to Moshe Oz, owner of CAA TACTICAL, “the use of the bipod grips will improve the level of marksmanship in the IDF significantly and at a low cost relatively to the expected improvement. The bipod grip is especially suited for infantry fighter and less for a designated marksman or a sniper due to the speed at which the bipods open, that allows faster shooting than with an ordinary bipod. We are currently participating in the tender for the sale of tens of thousands of bipod grips for a Western country”.
Glocks are known for their durability, but did you know they’re also fire resistant? OK maybe not, Glock posted on their Facebook page these pics of a customers G19 that survived a house fire.
Hey fellas, looking for the perfect gift for the special lady in your life? How about an AR-15 or KRISS Vector painted in the Tiffany and Company color scheme? They were painted by A1 Custom guns. For the women readers, how about a John Deere themed FH Pistol? Or perhaps a DeWalt Glock for your guy? There’s also the Milwaukee and DeWalt AR-15s.
I stumbled upon this post on Reddit a while back but forgot to post it. The person who found it since deleted their account (which was a good idea), not before they posted “Cleaning out grandma’s basement. This was in a box marked “christmas”. Yes, its real.” I wonder how many other hidden relics are in other basements and attics around the country.
I’m sure you’ve seen it in the movies before, a secret agent uses a pillow to silence a gun shot. But does it really work? Jerry Miculek puts the myth to the test, the results were surprising.
