  • Oakley Prizm Protective Eyewear

    If visual data is 4/5 of our decision making process and seeing is 1/3 of shooting accurately, I think it’s safe to say that protecting our vision and enhancing it in any way while in a potential conflict are both good things. Enter the Oakley Prizm.

  • PHLster and Boxer Tactical

    While I had seen the clear advantages of AIWB carry, had tried it, and very much wanted to like it, I’d never found a holster that, for me, made it comfortable and provided secure access with my full-size M&P. And while I certainly appreciate the...

  • Ontario Knife Company Model 4 Strap Cutter

    When I received the Model 4 Strap Cutter from Ontario Knife Company for test and evaluation, I had to set aside my first thought of, “Test a strap cutter?” and consider all of its features, uses (there is more than one) and overall value. Given the...

  • MAST Technology Inc. .223 Ammo

    I was in touch with an industry friend of mine and we happened to be discussing ammo. The cost of it came up as did the upcoming range day and the fact that we’d be shooting a variety of AR style rifles, all chambered in .223. My buddy said he might...

  • Rogers Rail Lite & Streamlight MicroStream

    I can foresee two primary scenarios in which this mounted light system would be used: on a home defense handgun or as an emergency backup light system on your duty handgun.

  • Ontario Knife Company XM Strike Fighter Review

    I give the OKC XM Strike Fighter two thumbs up. It handles and performs as it should and is reasonably priced. If you’re in the market for a new folder this holiday season, I suggest you check it out!

  • Two Underappreciated Blackhawk Bags

    Earlier this year Blackhawk introduced a number of new bags and two of them haven’t got much press so far. I can’t figure out why - they are both excellent products that fill clear needs. One I call the sleeper because it’s deliberately plain...
