When out of spec ammo meets the Tavor TS12

The oddities with 12ga shells aren’t new and if you’ve really been into shotguns for awhile […] you’ve experienced this first hand.

The oddities with 12ga shells aren’t new and if you’ve been into shotguns other than break actions and the ubiquitous Mossberg 500’s, you’ve already experienced this first hand.

For those of you who watched our video on the TS12 you know we already covered the fact that not all 2 3/4″ shells have the same OAL and that the S&B, in particular, are oversized and you can only fit 4 in each tube instead of 5.

IWI Tavor TS12 semiauto 12ga Shotgun

15+1 of 2 3/4″ 12ga in a semi-automatic Bullpup shotgun, the TS12 comes out swinging hard.

Technically the TS12 is chambered in 3″ 12ga and holds 12+1 rounds of 3″ shells but in all honesty I’m a fan of 2 3/4″ shells and being just as capable as slinging the slightly smaller 2 3/4″ shells (which most people are familiar with) I’m going to focus primarily on the more common 2 3/4″ shells. Spoiler alert, we had zero malfunctions with 3″ buck and slugs.

CZ P10C Suppressor Ready Part Two: Back from the factory

Plagued with problems from the first round, we give the CZ P10C a second look after it’s return from the factory.

The P10C Suppressor Ready handgun we bought and tested was fraught with problems from the very first round fired. Both with and without a silencer it was, for lack of a better term, a hot mess. You can find the original article documenting all the issues HERE .

CZ P10C Suppressor Ready: A Hot Mess

Fraught with malfunction from the first round fired, we walk you through the past 6 months

With an expected uptick in silencer videos, I was on the hunt for another 9mm suppressor host to make testing and comparing various cans easier. Comparing 3 different 9mm cans? Running them back to back to back in a single clip without cuts or edits can be a huge benefit for those watching. Don’t worry, we’d still run them all on the same host as well but being able to bouncing from one to another for certain things is really helpful.

13C Media on YT will focus on news, commentary and live streams

Recently the 13C Gun Reviews channel on YT was fully demonetized . From a momentary stand point, the impact will be minimal, virtually every video on our channel had been restricted leading into this latest YT move but the real issues are how that relates to features we can use on the channel.

IWI Masada ORP Review

The brand new Masada ORP from IWI US.

We’ll cover accuracy, reliability and even throw it up into the air to test this new Optics Ready Pistol.

Rumors of the Masada hitting the US market have been swirling for awhile now and over the past two months we’ve been testing one for IWI here at the hacienda. I really wanted to chime in on a few of the occasional posts I’d come across but being under an NDA, I had to keep my thoughts to myself. Now, I can finally spill all of that tea.

How to fly with a firearm- Step by step and dispelling the myths

It’s easy, it’s fairly simple and you’ll ask yourself why you didn’t start checking a firearm in your luggage years ago.

Usually while on vacation, or out of town on business, I’ll occasionally make a post on social media about my vacation EDC setup. These posts always garner questions about various steps on the process of flying with a firearm.

Bushnell SMRS II Pro

In a crowded field of variable powered optics Bushnell pushed further into the foray earlier this year with a new offering for 2019, the Elite Tactical SMRS II Pro.

Today we take a look at the final piece of of Sandbox Tactical Box build, the optic. Initially my plans for this build were included a red dot but after accuracy testing, I felt a red dot would really down play the potential versatility of this rifle.

Vanquest Envoy Messenger Bag

The Envoy 13 and 17 are the fourth generation of messenger bags from Vanquest, expanding on an already solid platform

The Envoy series builds on the previous three generations of their messenger bags with some well though out upgrades and listening to customer back about things they’d like to see added.

For our purposes we selected a Envoy 13, it’s the smaller of two bags and rated for a 13″ laptop. You guessed it, the Envoy 17 is a nod to the 17″ laptop it can hold.
