Streamlight ProTac HL Review

Does one ever really “need” another flashlight? Don’t we all have more than enough battery eating light machines? I thought so until I read the specs on Streamlight’s ProTac HL (High Lumen). I saw a 600 lumen, 6v compact flashlight made by a respected manufacturer for a super reasonable price (<$70) and thought, “ ’Eh, what’s one more light?”

RTG1 Target – Rockwell Tactical Group

Targets are important tools, and when used correctly, can greatly aid your marksmanship and improve your combat effectiveness. Using other training aids, like steel targets, also aids in training. There is a time and place for all types of targets. From bulls-eyes to real-imagery shoot/no-shoot targets. From different shapes to Zombie targets, they all have a place in quality training.

Spyderco Military G-10 Knife Review

Every once in a while through life, (Hopefully), your hands do something while your brain screams “Don’t do that you know its stupid and”……to late you just did it. Yea that was me a few years back while attempting to fit a Midwest Industries quad rail on a Colt LE carbine (Now I run Knights Armament rails). Unfortunately the victim of my carelessness was the blade tip of my Spyderco Military G-10 combat folder.

Urban Armor Gear Composite Case Review

I recently started using the Samsung Galaxy SIII smartphone. It is a very capable device that boasts ridiculous processing speeds, 4G LTE download speeds, more motion activated events than I know what to do with and one heck of a price tag if I have an “ooops” moment and drop it onto a concrete floor and shatter the screen. With that last point in mind I set out looking for a hardened case that wouldn’t cost what the phone was worth. I found the Urban Armor Gear (UAG) urbanarmorgear.com Composite Case.

Yates Tactical Rappel Harness Review

Upon being handed a Yates Tactical Rappel harness, my initial thought was, “great idea, in a pinch.” I thought there was no way I’d willingly be caught hanging on a few hundred feet of static rope for any length of time wearing a “tactical rappel harness.” I stand corrected.

London Bridge Trading Inc. Load Bearing Chest Rig (LBV) Review

A few years ago, a Navy Seal buddy of mine gave me this London Bridge Trading Company (LBT) Load Bearing Chest Rig to try out. I quickly fell in love with it and have been sporting it ever since, both in desert and jungle environments. I have deployed the rig both slick and with body armor, and it has not disappointed. Like everything in life there are both pros and cons, this chest rig is no different. Keep in mind that while the version being discussed is outdated, you can find new and improved versions on their website.

Camera Strap

Echo NiNer Light Speed Camera Strap Review

I purchased the E9 Light Speed Camera Strap a few weeks ago and I have to say that I am impressed. It is extremely well made and completely thought out. The E9 Light Speed Camera strap is a low profile camera strap designed with Combat and Civilian Photographers in mind. It is a scaled down version of their Original E9 Camera Strap.

SIG 556 Photo Review

Sig 556 SBR Review

For years I have known that it is legal to own a short barreled rifle (SBR) in my state. A short barrel rifle is defined as a rifle having a barrel shorter than sixteen inches. The provision in our state law states possession of an SBR is legal if the firearm is registered with the federal government. You can’t watch an action movie without seeing a very cool looking example of an SBR and having been a responsible gun owner for nearly twenty years I thought that might be a fun addition to my collection.

Streamlight TLR-1 Review

Streamlight TLR-1 Review

The TLR-1 proved invaluable during field use and provided much needed visibility when working alone at night. The lights’ C-4 LED produces a truly blinding tight beam of light with a substantial amount of peripheral illumination. It’s really difficult to describe just how bright this light is especially now that you can pick up an updated version that is even more powerful, but lets suffice to say that it is very bright (don’t accidentally point it at air support).
