Galil ACE Pistol w/ Stabilizing Brace – GAPSB review

Hot off the presses from IWI is the new Galil ACE 5.56 pistol with Stabilizing Brace.  The Galil borrows from the venerable Russian AK-47 and Finnish Valmet and utilizes a long stroke gas piston and rotating bolt.  It also takes standard NATO/STANAG AR-15 magazines.

Both the safety and magazine release are ambidextrous and the bolt hold and release is located on the right hand side of the receiver where it can be accessed by a right handed shooters index finger. Read more »

ALERT: New LaPorte County, IN “ordinance” threatens firearms and private property owners once again

ALERT: LaPorte County Indiana seems to be taking aim at restrictions on firearms in the county again, in addition to creating a new office with sweeping powers to access any business or residential property at “reasonable times”.

Last Wednesday a 20 page ordinance “First reading” was unanimously passed which would, among other things, restrict ‘noise’. The language is extremely broad and seems to cover virtually anything that makes noise or a sound.

Rugged Suppressors Oculus 22

The Rugged Suppressors Oculus 22 silencer. It isn’t often a 22 can reaches up and grabs me right by the feels but this one did.

At 5.25″, 6.9 ounces and 1.06″ diameter in the full configuration it isn’t the shortest, lightest or thinnest can on the market but the extra ounce or so and .06″ is more than worth it when you look at the full picture.

Rugged claims “no first round pop” in the full 5.25″ configuration and honestly I can’t Read more »
