Mossberg 500 Slugs on Steel

Those who have followed us for a while know the Freeze hunts quite a bit with a Mossberg 500 shotgun. Actually, it’s Mossberg’s economical line known as a New Haven Shotgun. As I type, I can’t recall how long he has been using this particular gun, but it’s at least 20 years. And possibly more. Well…a few weeks before deer …

FBI Selects Glock 9mm

I will start off by saying that I know as much as you do regarding the FBI’s decision to choose a Glock 9mm as the next standard service pistol. Also like many of you, I too had heard that the FBI’s RFP basically seemed written to give the SIG P320 the win. Now before we all start going off the …

On Sunday, June 26th we decided to take www.tacticaltshirts.com down for some software maintenance. It’s back-end stuff and won’t interfere with any existing orders being screened and shipped. Once everything is complete, obviously we will be back on-line.   In the meantime, you can still reach us here. What did Clint Smith say? “Two websites is one. And one website …

Removing SCAR 16 Front Rail

Been running a SCAR for at least 4 years. Over time I have developed some opinions about it’s features. So this past winter I decided I needed to address one glaring issue I have. The for-end is too thick. Well, at least for how I keep the rifle configured. One, I prefer a light at 12 o’clock. My reasoning is …

POTD — Beretta 92 – M9

A customer sent us a funny image inspired by a t-shirt design we sell. A Beretta 92F with a blank firing adopter stuck in it’s barrel. Some of you will get the joke. Some won’t. Which is why the shirt is so popular.   Sincerely, Marky www.tacticaltshirts.com www.john1911.com “Shooting Guns & Having Fun”

Brexit – Western Civilization is in Crisis

I have intentionally not discussed the UK leaving the European Union. Frankly I didn’t think they had the balls to do it. Or worse, I suspected the elites would rig the system so exiting wouldn’t be allowed to happen. Call me cynical. The lefty media will tell you that this is a terrible thing. Honestly it is a great thing. …

Interesting SCAR PDW Stocks

Found these images recently and thought they were interesting. It seems more and more aftermarket options are coming out for the SCAR rifles. I figured my fellow SCAR users would like to see these. Both stocks shown here are known as PDW stocks. Very similar to some of the German HK varieties. Since the SCAR doesn’t use a buffer-tube, it …

Video: 223 FAL — SA-4800

We had a reader inquire about the 223 / 5.56 FAL we have in the armory. His main questions were: Can it use PMAGs? If so, what generation of PMAGs? What do we think of GI / STANAG Magazines? Where to get one without a thumbhole stock? Can I mount a red-dot (RDS) to it? Can I SBR it or …

Zeroing 338LM Blaser Tactical 2

First confession: I very rarely ever shoot from an actual bench. Literally 99% of my rifle shooting is done prone or positional. Just about the only exception would be when doing initial testing and initial zeroing like here. What is, “initial zeroing”? It is also known as “getting on paper”. The 338LM is anywhere from $3 to $5.00 a shot. …

Using Tape to Camouflage a Rifle

The photo is of French Troops in winter conditions with their FAMAS assault rifles and what I guess is a MAS FR F2 Sniper rifle. What struck me about the image was the use of tape to breakup up the black pattern of the weapons in the snow. Those of us who live in the real world know quite well …

Mountain Mike Skull Master Mounting Kit

This past deer season Marky and I were hunting a friend’s private farm in Indiana. While we were both lucky enough to fill our buck tags, I happened to get a pretty nice 11 pointer. Nothing that I would actually send off to the taxidermist for a head mount but pretty nice. I usually just cut the skull cap off …
