I’ve been busy.
My review of the Primary Arms 1x Roof Prism optic is up at Shooting Illustrated. Short version: It’s my new favorite optic.
You really don’t know how much difference upgrading the trigger in your AR makes until you upgrade to a really, really good one.
And a blast from the past, a gun that I wasn’t expecting to like, but did.
Now on to the stuff I didn’t write: Claude Werner looks at the history of the Dot Torture Drill
We plan for an “average” gunfight, but is there really such a thing?
Looking forward to seeing what this turns up. I have friends on the mission field right now who are serving in countries that would kill them if they were found out to be Christians. We in America have lived many, many years without the threat of sectarian-based violence, and I hope we have a good many more as well.
This is a nifty little gadget that doesn’t scream “HEY, THERE IS IMPORTANT, EXPENSIVE STUFF IN HERE!!!” yet still keeps your stuff secure. If you travel often (especially if you store a laptop or a firearm in your room), it’d be something worth picking up.
Speaking of nifty little gadgets, Sabre Red has FINALLY built a decently-sized can of spicy treats with a good belt clip (although it’s still a bit big). Dear pepper spray manufacturers: All I want is a can that attaches either to my belt or inside my pocket that’s about the same size as a Glock 19 mag, with a flip-top safety and a reversible belt clip. Why is that so hard to make?
Me, four years ago: “Now that Glock has a mini .380 out, I’m seeing a lot more chatter about how with the right bullets (I’m a fan of Hornady XTP’s myself), .380 ACP is a viable self-defense round.”
Bart Skelton, this month: “There’s a certain term that I’ve personally shunned that refers to small firearms and a certain species of rodent. I don’t care for the phrase.”
