A few weeks ago, Tactical Link graciously sent me one of their PRM sling mount. This is the 2nd gen of the rail mounted sling mounting point for QD sling swivels. I opted for the coyote PRM since my gun is a FDE anodized Colt 6940. I was very excited to get this mount and … Read moreThe Tactical Link Gen2 PRM Review

You can get some good deals buying used parts online. I buy a good deal of stuff used on the Equipment Exchange on AR15.com. The problem is that when you buy used you are taking a large risk, and you really need to know what you are purchasing. Not only are there scammers out there, … Read moreBuying a used AR15 upper part 1 — A look at a Colt 733 upper
I personally teach my two boys about the firearms we have in the home and how they operate. I also teach them about safety and to never touch the firearms, unless Mom and Dad are present. There are several NRA videos (cartoon friendly) that are geared towards children on firearms safety as well. It is … Read moreEducating Children on Firearms
TWANGnBANG posted up a class review where he shows some of the Raidon Tactics non-standard shooting position training. I really enjoyed watching this video that I often forget about shooting long arms weak side strong handed, and other variants of things like that.
The class wasn’t exactly called this, but “Intermediate 2 Long Range Shooting” just isn’t descriptive. This class started with some RETs (rapid engagement techniques) that are easy and fast for mil-ing e-types (and people) out to about 600yds. We then went right into the practical portion of the class.
Frankie McRae, head of Raidon Tactics, generously allows me to share everything I want in my videos on their classes (except RETs), and this is no exception. That said, the overriding lesson from the course can be summarized as “use everything you have to build a stable shooting position.” If you can’t relax, then you can’t hold the rifle steady. So, we were challenged to find stuff we had with us to shove under our rifles, wedge into unsupported joints, etc.
Our “graduation” exercise was to shoot an e-type at 500yds while side prone. Our line of sight was under a barrier and over a rise in the ground in front of us, requiring us to lay our rifles sideways in order to use our scopes. It was a really rewarding experience to hear the ring of the steel in spite of being in a very awkward position.
I also show how the H59 Horus reticle in my Bushnell HDMR made aiming much easier. I am sold on the utility of having the grid at my disposal when picking a point of aim.

I know I have talked a little bit about the old Colt produced .22LR conversion kit before, but it was not in much detail. I get asked about the conversion units often and they seem to be fairly rare these days. I am not even sure how popular they used to be since commercial .223 … Read moreThe Colt .22LR AR15/M16 Conversion Kit
