In Defense of the Fixed Front Sight

I was thinking about the on-again/ off-again rumors that Uncle Sam is once agin shopping / testing to determine what the next US mil carbine will be, and got to wondering which enhancements are worthy of being included and which are unnecessary, and came up with this train of thought when it comes t...

Re: What higher end RDS is on your "goto" rifle?

I like the Aimpoint PRO and variants thereof. I mostly run them in an ADM mount because of the weight. The field of view is good, they're tough and have great battery life.

Re: CMMG Bravo AR .22 LR conversion kit

I hope it will work on an AR. :-)

Watch out, there are some fakes out there. Mine came with the tiny sight adjustment cheat sheet.

Re: CMMG Bravo AR .22 LR conversion kit

There are a lot of those USMC KAC 200-600 rear sights out there right now. You could use that quick adjust drum to quickly adjust for point of impact.Image

Primary Arms. B5 Systems Bravo stock and their P Grip for $49. Seems legit for the stock and the grip. They had black too. This is one of my favorite stocks. http://www.primaryarms.com/product/13819 [img]https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171110/b8b4bab9c535be5c63519571b0d237fa.jpg[/img]] Sent from ...

Re: Bug Out Gear Deals (Post 'em when you find 'em) I

This little Bulldog case is down to $21.65 on Amazon. It has a nice divider in the middle so that an M4 split into an upper and a lower can comfortably fit on either side of the divider. Compared to a longer hard case or even a padded soft case, this simple setup is just so much less cumbersome and ...

I prefer the Safariland ALS series of holsters. They are available for 1911's and are not available for BHP.

A while back I was shooting with friends and decided to fire my deep conceal /backup piece to keep familiar with it. I neglected to reload it right away. Two days later I realized I'd been carrying it empty for two days.

Re: All purpose "Help me build my AR" thread.

I feel weirdly conflicted about AR's. When I had a carbine, I wanted a middy. When I got a middy, I wanted a free float tube. When I got that I wanted a different free float tube. Now I find myself wanting a carbine with GI handguard again. What's my deal? What I probably really need is a big Lego s...

Re: So I made another plate carrier

4' elastic with the grippy hypalon is a lot of retention. Add Pmag ribs in and they are pretty solid. Upside-down BFG 10-speeds aren't unheard of either, even with aluminum mags. I'm kind of counting on the bottom-out draw for certain concealment garments so I don't want to seal off the bottom. Thi...

Re: So I made another plate carrier

My sewing machine is down right now, but I want to try something like what you made. Otherwise, I might try and buy a "minimalist" carrier (like just two plates bags with straps) and sew on additional velcro and just make the cummerbund.

Re: Looking for a big velcro panel for tactical vest

I like the idea of the rifle mag pouch! Will need some shallow pouches for this as my regular ones for 30rnds 5.56 will be too deep for practical use.
