Recently I wrote an article on converting your AR-15 or AR-10 into a different caliber rifle. After publishing it, I thought I should have published how I came about those ideas originally.
This is relevant now, December 2016, so get on it!
The election of Donald Trump as the next American president has been a blessing to gun enthusiast across the nation. It also has been a blessing if you were “gun curious”. Continue reading Why buy a inexpensive AR? Because NOW is the time!
Today we have a guest article from MKS Supply.
Gloves. A while back Hi-Point had posted about the usage of gloves when shooting.
As it turns out it was met with mostly laughs and jokes saying that gloves are far too tactical. Are they? Our hands are a defining characteristic of what makes us, us. Humans that is.
Last November 2015, I posted an article on the build of my wife’s pink AR. You can read about it here – http://www.the22man.com/2015/11/building-a-pink-ar-the-adventure/
One part that I had not purchased for that rifle was a pink trigger. I waited and hunted trying to find a deal. Finally for Christmas 2015 I just ordered it from CheaperThanDirt.com and paid $200 for it.
If any of you know me, you know I consider myself to be a patriot. I love the United States of America, I love Texas and Missouri. I consider my citizenship a privilege and an honor. I believe along with living here I have a civic duty to volunteer and support groups that support our States and Country.
Sometimes that patriotism bleeds over to “stuff” and in this case it bled over to a holster and magazine pouch I had Ares Tactical (www.AresTactical.net) make for me in April of 2015. The “Standard” holster and “Double magazine pouch” for a Generation 2 Glock 19 with the Missouri flag and a double magazine pouch with the Texas flag on it.
These days, there are many individuals and companies making Kydex holsters. So many it is hard to choose which company to buy from.
Questions like, what is the material they use, what it the thickness of the material, what styles do they make, will they be around tomorrow and what is their warranty.
Ares Tactical is the Kydex holster maker of my choice and you can read why here: http://www.the22man.com/2016/05/a-quick-overview-of-ares-tactical/
With that said, I wanted to review a new type of clip for Kydex holsters and how it greatly improves the wearing of such holsters. It is called the Ulti Clip, yes I spelled that correctly. Continue reading ARES IWB UltiClip Holster Review
I want to start off with a disclaimer. Matt Facas started out several years ago as some guy I met at a gathering, then he became a guy I knew, then an acquaintance and now I consider him a friend. Before you think my views are too bias, check out some of my other reviews, I can be brutal. With that knowledge I talked to Matt and let him know I wanted to do a review of his products, I did not want or need any since I had many of them on hand. I could see the nervous look in his eyes, he was wondering how tough I was going to be. Well, I am just as tough as with any product I review.
I will start off with where you can find his company Ares Tactical. Check them out at http://www.arestactical.net/ or at https://www.facebook.com/arestactical on FaceBook. Continue reading A quick overview of Ares Tactical
Before I begn, you must us a holster if you carry a handgun. sticking it in your belt or sock is just stupid. http://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2016/may/16/us-man-shoots-himself-in-foot-while-adjusting-sock
Also Law Enforcement knows that criminals don’t use holsters and good guys do. Why? Guns are a tool to a criminal and if he must ditch the gun, they don’t want evidence they had a gun on them. So wear a holster! Continue reading Pistol Conceal Carry holsters: Hip (belt) holsters
In June of 2014 I wrote my original articles on my visit to XS Sights. Yes, I just published them here in May. In this report I want to go over my results of using them for all 2015.
Early winter 2014 I installed a set of XS big dot sights on my Glock 19. I chose to install them myself though, as I noted in the first article, one could mail their slide to the XS factory in Ft. Worth and have them installed. I had previously bought their AR front sight, three actually. I will have to get you a review on those soon.
