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. In this post, we're going through some basic guidelines and a suggested layout for developing your own minimalist fighting kit.
This post summarizes just about everything I've learned about rifle barrels in general, and specifically AR-15 Barrels. It's fair to say that the barrel is the heart of the gun, and the most important choice to make when configuring a rifle. There are a lot of considerations and tradeoffs to make when deciding on the "right" one for you, so let's dig in.
While zeroing a new optic at the range recently, I fell down a rabbit hole of finding the "best" zero for a 22lr precision rifle. My determination: 35 yards, but how did I come to that conclusion, and is it actually right for you?
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.
This review has been a long time coming. It’s no secret at this point that I’ve been spending a lot of time with the Tikka T1x MTR in 22lr, as it served as the basis for my “Noisy Cricket” precision 22LR project. In my write up of the project, I laid out all of the choices that I made but mentioned that reviews of each major component would be forthcoming. Well, here we are.
There's a lot of engineering voodoo that goes into making a rifle work well and fire accurately. The length of a rifle's barrel and how it affects the velocity of the bullet is one of those major factors.
