I’m going to be talking a lot about the new Wisconsin Concealed Carry law in the upcoming weeks. The bill was signed on July 8, 2011 by Governor Walker, and you can begin applying for licenses on November 1, 2011. Wisconsin is the 49th state to allow concealed carry, with Illinois the only hold out at present.
Concealed Carry is great for self defense. When you’re out at night and want a little extra security without anyone knowing, having a handgun concealed under your shoulder, on your ankle, or at your waist is a great option. But one thing I’ve noticed is that under duress even the best shooters lose accuracy. Attacks often happen at night, and the darkness further disrupts your ability to defend yourself.
One of the best ways to improve accuracy in these conditions is with a laser sight. While any gun sight, when properly used, will increase your chances of hitting a target, laser sights tend to be easier to use. One issue you might run into when you want to conceal your firearm is the size of the laser sight. Dependant on your gun and the size of the concealed carry holster, …
We just added this offbeat product to our stores. It’s pretty cool if you ask me.
The GG&G 40MM Grenade Salt and Pepper Shaker and Toothpick Holder is, as the name implies, a set of of salt and pepper shakers and a toothpick holder designed to look like a 40MM grenade. I know a lot of you guys are hunters, and I bet your next picnic or barbecue would be much better if you had a set of these shakers on the table.
The Grenade Shakers are made from solid billet 6061 T-6 aluminum, giving them a really nice look, and they’re pretty durable. You should still be careful with them though, as they should be washed with a mild detergent to preserve the finish.
I think it’s great to see products like the GG&G 40MM Grenade Shakers. They’re a lot of fun and are a great way to show off your style and love of artillery.
We have some more cool products coming to our stores soon, so check back with the Tactical-Store Blog for all the latest.
I know you guys don’t like to let on when you’re lost. And that goes double for when you’re out hunting or hiking with your buddies or your wife. You’ll never hear the end of it, right?
And I’ll bet that as much as you don’t like admitting when you’re lost to others, you don’t like to admit it to yourself even more. We all like to consider ourselves the masters of the universe. But face it, you might get lost from time to time.
I’m going to suggest you protect yourself. I know I’ve mentioned Bushnell GPS units before, and we just got their latest offering in at our stores. Most of you know that global positioning systems are great for driving directions, but what about when you’re in the woods, without so much as a trail to guide you? That’s what the Bushnell Backtrack is for.
The Bushnell Backtrack D-Tour GPS Personal Tracker gives you a clear idea of where you are, and more importantly, where you need to be. The system is very easy to use. You can mark the location of your car, hotel, campsite, or maybe just the best view you’ve ever seen, and the …
In our quest to always bring the best possible products to our customers, Tactical-Store.com and OpticsPlanet.com have joined forces with EOTech to create a few new options for hunters and soldiers. You may remember our first OPMOD collaboration with EOTech last summer, the L-3 EOTech OPMOD EXPS2 Holographic Weapon Sight. The amazing success we, and our customers, had with that has led to us bringing two more options to the market, the L-3 EOTech OPMOD MPO III EXPS2-0 and the L-3 EOTech OPMOD MPO II EXPS3-0.
These two new great options take some of the most popular sights from EOTech and add in a G23 3x magnifier, so that your holographic weapon sight is effective at both short and medium distances. Holographic weapon sights were first developed by EOTech, and they offer unparalleled accuracy and speed of target acquisition.
The MPO III EXPS2-0 was designed for use while both eyes are open, allowing the shooter to see more of the field quicker than with any other sight. This compact sight only needs 2 3/4 inches of rail space, allowing you to mount the magnifier behind it. The G23 3x magnifier can flip to the side …
Last week I had a post up on laser sights, focusing on the Crimson Trace Master Series 1911, I really like the Master Series, as it adds a great aiming option to your pistol without a lot of extra bulk and it is easy to use. The compact nature and simple use is great, but if you need a laser sight with added functionality, I’d take a look at the Laser Devices MOLAD LLM-1 Laser/IR/LED Tactical Light.
Rather than being used on a pistol, this Laser Devices sight is better suited for rifles, carbines, and sub machine guns with NATO 13 or Picatinny rails. The MOLAD LLM-1 combines a laser sight with an LED flashlight, an infrared pointer and an infrared illuminator to give the user as many low light options as possible.
If you’re using night vision, you can turn on the IR pointer or illuminator to give you a better view through the night vision while not alerting enemies or game to your presence.
