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 bills it as a “versatile LED illumination tool’ and honestly, I think that describes it fairly accurately.
The H2R has turned out to be an excellent multipurpose utility light around the hacienda. As those of you who follow 13C know, we live on working farm with acreage and we’ve got to just about every situation you could imagine for illumination needs. Read more
We talk with Tucker of Blackout Custom Cerakote & Force1Tactical at the Big 3 East March 2018 media event.
Tucker and Joe also completely transformed my old, beat up and dingy EDC G19 into a work of art with custom paint job, Razor slide cuts, stippling and modifications to the trigger guard, magazine release and removing the finger groves as well as modifying the back of the grip and more. Read more
The Engage line of rifle scopes and binoculars is an aggressive push from Bushnell to meet market demands for optics packed with features at near entry level price points.
The model we have for testing is the Engage 4-16×44 and we paired it with the new Weaver MSR mount. The rifle you’ve seen before in silencer testing, it’s the CMMG Anvil chambered in .458 SOCOM. Read more
PL-Mini Valkyrie: Compact, lightweight, bright and rechargeable.
When it comes to weapons lights there are a lot of options and a lot of features to consider in addition to what your price point is and what applications you plan on using it for.
Lumens are one of the first considerations, Read more
A closer look at the Ti-Rant 9M from AAC – Advanced Armament Corporation in both full and short (K) configurations with super and subsonic ammunition as well as running it “wet”.
A question we get a lot here is “I bought a base AR, what can I do to spice it up that won’t break the bank?”
Some options are very easy and cost effective. The TP15MRS drop in rail, for example, completely changes the front end of your rifle and has an MSRP of under $40. Read more

Body armor is a necessary piece of equipment for law enforcement agents, security agents, bodyguards, and unfortunately has become common place for even EMS and Fire personnel. When working in or commuting through higher risk areas, even the every day citizen can have a need for an extra level of protection.
Ballistic resistant armor comes in many shapes and sizes as well as styles and levels of protection. There is also a difference in how stab and spike resistant and bulletproof armor works. Just because a certain product is rated for one, doesn’t mean it’s rated for the others. Read more
Our latest review takes a look at the OPMOD variant of the Sig Romeo 5 XDR from Optics Planet. With one of our favorite reticles, the 65MOA outer circle with 2MOA inner circle, 8 daylight and 2 night vision settings and upto 50,000 hours of life on a single AAA battery and an IPX7 rating this optic checks most of the boxes we look for.
We’ll answer some of the questions about how it has held up and if there have been any issues with returning to a battery that’s mounted inline with rifle, as opposed to a transverse mount. Read more
Testing for the full review on the new 1911 R1 Ultralight Executive from Remington is complete and the results are in.
Two months ago we gave you the first ‘in the wild’ video on the R1 Ultralight Executive: FIRST LOOK: The R1 1911 Ultralight Executive from Remington . Initial testing was extremely positive and it ate all the dirty reloads we could feed it. It was also our first attempt at pulling off a non stop video with no cuts detailing our experiences in an unedited format. Feedback was overwhelmingly positive so we decided to try it again for the full review. Read more
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 makes for an ideal hog slayer as Lone Star Boars regularly demonstrates in their videos.
The .458 SOCOM round has a wide variety of chamberings from 140 grains all the way up to 500 grains and if you want the most of out your rifle and silencer the pair we just tested seems to fit that bill nicely. Read more
