Reflex and red dot sights have been mounted various way on pistols for years. None were inexpensive. When Glock introduced the MOS (Miniature Optic System) idea, I instantly saw several advantages. By building a system into the gun no bulky add-on mounts or expensive slide cuts that voided the warranty and only fit one brand of optic. I wear bifocals and with a reflex sight, you focus on the target and the “red dot” is in focus too. I was hoping this would speed up my target acquisition significantly.

Previously I wrote an article on Pistol Caliber Versatility comparing what calibers could be shot in place of the main round.
In this article I want to discuss a similar topic, shooting different calibers, safely in a pistol by swapping minimal parts. In this case either the barrel or the barrel and magazine.
“What? It’s a fake? I will get them off my shelf right away!” he said. That’s how this article was given birth.
I have kept this article under wraps for almost 2 years, partially to give the business time to do what he said, and partially because, well I don’t have a good reason. I also was looking for some more information I had.
Let’s start with a little background, until 2014 I did not care about small reflex sites and did not keep up with their technology or cost. It was a result of this incident that I began my research and study of the small reflex sites. I have used “holo” sites on rifles for decades, I just had not investigated or bought the small ones.

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
