Olight H2R Nova 'Versatile LED Illumination tool'.

We’ve been working with some various lights from Olight for awhile now and we’ve been impressed with both their construction and function. The H2R Nova is a bit of a departure from what we would normally review here because it isn’t really an EDC (Every Day Carry) light and it isn’t a tactical light.  Olight […]

Bowers VERS 458 SOCOM Silencer & CMMG Anvil MkW-15 review

458 SOCOM is one of those niche calibers that you really can’t appreciate until you get behind one and start shooting it. For me it’s probably not something I’d get much practical use out of right now but my dreams of moving back south one day live on. If I do, this hard hitting round […]
