Gear is secondary to mindset and skillset, but still very relevant to success. The right piece of gear makes any job easier. Contained here are all posts about equipment, from reviews to employment.
I would like to talk about some of my personal project builds. The intent of this post is not so much a “show and tell” as it is a discussion of what decisions I made, why I made them, and how they affected me as time went on. I’d like to think that my decision-making skills got better as time went on and I gained experience.
You know how that “teach a man to fish” saying goes? I always thought it was a little pithy, but it wasn’t wrong. I’m going to review common AR-15 specs and explain what they mean.
There really is a lot of misunderstanding surrounding the designated marksman rifle. That’s partly due to the fact that it’s more of a concept than anything else. Since the concept’s inception into the US military, the actual rifle configuration is changed every few years. The role of the rifle has not, however.
Fellow blogger Sunshine Shooter competed in Desert Brutality 2019, a match that emphasizes physical toughness of you and your equipment.
In this post, you’ll get a sense of what Desert Brutality is all about as an event, and some tips for competing in future iterations.
This post continues our look at load carriage by focusing on more traditional load bearing equipment. Before we get into my personal setups, I want to talk a little bit about how load carrying gear evolved over time.
For whatever reason, I don’t think the Trijicon battery-powered LED ACOGs have gained as much traction as they deserve. The classic combat optic paired with an efficient LED emitter is a great combination, and I want to take a deeper look at it. In particular, I’m going to review my TA-110 ACOG with the horseshoe-dot reticle and green LED illumination.
The battle belt is a sort of modern iteration of the classic ALICE gear that served the US military from the 70s through late 90s. But there are some significant differences, particularly in the type and amount of load that the belt handles.
