Civic Duty HP Ammunition

Speer’s “Flying Ashtray” was the handgun bullet to use “back in the day.” But since then, there have been some serious advancements made in creating handgun bullets that penetrate deeply and expand reliably. One of the new bullets I saw at SHOT is the Civic Duty from G2 Research and the expanded bullets look like the blades from a kitchen …

Lever-Action Shotgun

With classic lever-action shotguns such as the Winchester Model 1887 being reproduced, you’re probably wondering why Adler Arms would show what looks like a lever-action Benelli. Well, you can’t own semi-autos everywhere, so this is probably nothing more than a work-around for shotgunners wanting additional capacity and faster follow-up shots. I didn’t actually get to handle this gun at SHOT, …

Beautiful Opening Day 2015

As I type, I am sitting in the dark. With no power. And it’s zero degrees outside. Winter is fully upon us in these parts. I know many of you had your winter suspended because someone forgot to pay the, “Old-man-winter-tax”; but rest assured, tacticaltshirts’ winter dues are paid in full! I kid. To some, pictures from a beautiful opening …

Old School Retention Holster

“I’m not as good as I once was, but I’m good once as I ever was.” Some days I feel like this. I’ve been around a long time. I have seen things come and go, and then come back around again. I have also seen technology and equipment drastically change as well. The advent of strong and cheap polymers is …

Mounting a scope on Son-in-Law’s 10/22

Who doesn’t like a Ruger 10/22? We love ‘em! Now that deer season is over, Freeze has had some time to mess with some backlogged projects. One of them was mounting a scope on his SIL’s (Son-in-Law) Ruger 22. When I heard this was happening, I asked Freeze to post some pictures of his process and tools. Why? It’s a …

Com-Bloc RPG with Bi-Pod

Some of you are aware that besides firearms, we keep examples of man portable ordnance in the armory as well. A month or so back, we acquired a variant of the standard RPG that many may not have seen. The bipod RPG. What is nice about this example is the condition. When it arrived we were all stunned. The two …

POTD HK VP9 Wear

This photo was taken in August of 2015. As I type it is January of 2016. I had been carrying this VP9 since the winter. Compared to now, it almost looks brand new. In the harsh light, a lot of the wear is masked. But even then, the beginnings of significant wear is evident on the slide. So I figured …

Blaser F3 Shotgun

First of all, I am not a clay-bird kind of shooter. I own only one O/U shotgun. A Browning Citori I needed to buy for an event 15 years ago. Back then there was a shooter in my squad who was toting around a $25,000 shotgun. I recall it being a Perazzi. I only noticed it since that guy never …

Ruger’s New Delta Ring/Nut Rocks

Last year, Ruger came out with its new AR-556 rifle. The gun is a very basic direct impingement (DI)-type AR-15 with a suggested retail of $749. It’s Ruger’s first DI M4, and the first gun made at the new Mayodan, NC plant. Despite being a basic gun it’s a full-featured AR. It has the brass deflector, dust cover and forward …
