I’ll be the first to admit that i’m exposed to a ton of new tactical gadgetry almost on a weekly basis. After all these years, there’s only one weapon light that has withstood a hell of a beating and lived to fight another day.
Now contrary to what a few industry authorities try to make you believe, lasers actually work very well at hitting your mark in the night. How do i know? Over this past Halloween, I took a trip down Texas to shoot the 2014 Walking Dead Multigun match. The event took place from 5pm till 5am and everything was shot in the dark. Needless to say , I had the Streamlight TLR2 on every one of my guns.
While i’m not kicking in doors as an LEO or in the military, this light was more than capable of handling my 24 hour onslaught of wipping my rifle, pistol and shotgun into barrels and banging into pretty much everything else.
Sure I could talk about all of the complex specifics of what makes this an outstanding choice for a weaponlight but i’m not going to do that. What I can tell you is that …
Whether you’re looking for a new pair of tactical pants or need a new level 3 duty holster, Blackhawk has a little something for just about everyone.
Speaking of tactical pants, its worth noting that BLACKHAWK makes by far one of the best all around “tactical” trousers on the market. What makes them so great? For starters, the butt section and knee area double layered for extra strength in those high wear spots. Along with top notch YKK zippers and a gusseted crotch for increased mobility, the expanding waistband is a big plus for those times when one double cheeseburger isn’t enough.
It’s a known fact that a solid pair of pants is only as good as the belt to hold them up. Luckily BLACKHAWK makes an excellent stiff belt. I personally own this CQB Riggers belt and can attest to its pure awesomeness. I used this belt quite often for IDPA pistol competitions and even was crazy enough to try a little repelling by attaching a carabiner to the belts v-hook. (Which i dont recommend unless you know what you’re doing)
New to competitive rifle shooting? Tight on cash but still want high quality? You’re not alone. With the unprecedented growth of the sport of 3-gun, now more than ever has the demand for an affordable 1-4x riflescope been so profound.
Lucky for anyone on a shooting budget (myself), Nikon has just the answer for your budget competitive shooting needs. The M-223 series of riflescopes is designed from the ground up to jive with the 223 cartridge like peanut butter and jelly, hence the name. While you wouldn’t want to use some of the other scopes in the line such as their 2-8 or 4-16 in the sport of three gun, the 1-4x20mm is about as ideal as you could ask for.
I’m not one to get overly excited about riflescopes but I’ll tell you right now, this scope is unlike anything you’re going to find especially for under $200. Yeah that’s right, with Nikon’s instant $110 rebate on this scope, you’ll get it for a nice 180 clams.
