Explosive Arrowheads

December 20, 2013
Bow Mag

Silent(ish), but deadly. Meet the Bow Mag: Bullet enhanced arrow head. Recently, Jonathan sent me an email that simply contained a link and said, “I’m not even sure why, but I really want this.” I watched the product demo video scratching my head. Yet, I was also left wanting to buy a pack of Bow […]

Carbon Fiber Kydex Holster

Recently I made a big change: I moved away from leather holsters in favor of Kydex. (It felt a little dirty at first, admittedly.) For years I stuck almost religiously to all metal guns and traditional leather holsters. But as time went on the discomfort of wagging around a boat anchor on my belt became […]

Prepper Handgun Case

Prepper Handgun Hard Case

Recently, I had to fly to Phoenix with my handgun. And this sparked a search for a new gun hard case. Admittedly, I already had a perfectly good Pelican case. But I’m always up for looking at new toys. And that’s when I ran across the Prepper Handgun Case. (The name caught my eye–I’m simple.) […]

Tactical Poncho

Hazard4 Poncho Villa

Think Ponchos aren’t exciting? Maybe you’ve never seen the Hazard4 Poncho Villa Technical Soft Shell Poncho. (Not to be confused with Pancho Villa–the Mexican Revolutionary General.) I’ve always carried a Poncho in my BOB and car bag. I like them because they’re more versatile than a rain coat and fit over gear–not just your body. But, admittedly, […]

Gerber Downrange Tomahawk

Gerber Downrange Tomahawk

There’s something decidedly awesome about Tomahawks. Maybe it’s the little boy in me that wishes he was still out climbing trees, building potato cannons, riding BMX, or playing Cowboys and Indians well past an appropriate age… Maybe it’s because they are actually a useful tool. (Maybe both. And that’s ok too.) Recently, Gerber released the […]

Streamlight TLR-1

Steamlight LTR-1

Shine a light on what your gun is pointing at with the Steamlight TLR-1 Rail Mounted Weapon Flashlight. Why would you want a weapon mounted light? Glad you asked, because it is very important. Here’s why: If you can’t see what you’re point a gun at, you can’t in good faith pull the trigger–or at […]

Friday Gear Report: The Sticky Holster

May 24, 2013

Concealed carry can be a challenge, especially in the summer months when heat is a factor and jackets or coats are not worn. I would love to carry a large .50 caliber handgun, though I have no way to effectively conceal it when wearing board shorts and a t-shirt. Enter the Sticky Holster. The Sticky […]

Friday Gear Report: The Sawyer Point Zero Two Viral Water Purifier

May 10, 2013

The Sawyer Point Zero Two Viral Water Purifier comes with a one million gallon guarantee and can be purchased for around $100.  The price-per-gallon offered by this device is far better than anything else I have encountered so far!  Given my desire to have redundant systems (primary and backup firestarters, primary and backup firearms, etc…,) […]
