This post submitted by Mack: A recent post on Facebook from a former colleague brought back a flood of memories. In the attic, I have a couple of foot lockers full of gear. One is from the days when I wore the Boy Scout khaki as a professional. One is from my days as a … Read moreGuest Post: Tactical Talismans
Some years back I wanted a Larue Tactical PredatAR upper. They didn’t sell the uppers separately so I bought an entire rifle and sold the Larue lower. I sold the lower for $500 and it sold in 15 minutes. Guess I should have priced it higher. At first mounted a muzzle break on it, and … Read moreA look at the 5.56 Larue Ultimate Upper
Last week I went and bought another something that I really don’t need. A Surefire M25 from CDNN. It showed up today. This is from the dark and early days of primitive weapon lights. The manual has a revision date of 1-1-2006. So by weapon light standards, this is positively ancient. This Surefire M25 I received … Read moreRetro – Surefire M25
I took this pictures a week ago. I was plinking with an old Trijicon Reflex Sight. At one point I decided to shoot at the clay pidgeon chips on the berm. I noticed I was having a little difficulty focusing on them. Then I realized I was seeing them with my left eye, and couldn’t … Read moreDamned Blue Tint (Trijicon Reflex Sight)

The model is nothing special, but it rare to find one with the military “TS-30 A2” markings. I’ve been meaning to post up a review of this scope, but when … Read moreExtreme disappointment in Leupold.

Larry Vickers recently posted a cool video on the Colt 9mm SMG. Long ago I had a Colt AR6450 9mm upper. I bought it along with a used VM Hitech Uzi Magazine adapter. It was fun, but I remember my first impression was that the 9mm felt like it had more recoil than a … Read more9mm AR15s
Ok, I’m phoning it in this week. I found these old HK BUIS I thought I sold long ago, and I found that the old article on them has all the images missing. On the HK416/MR556 and their .308 rifles as well the optics rail is higher than the rail on a standard flat top … Read moreOptic of the week: HK Diopter BUIS
