The Ultimate KÜHL Pants Buying Guide

I’ve been wearing KUHL pants as my go-to pants almost exclusively for several years. I’ve sported them in a wide range of environments and weather conditions, literally coast to coast – teaching shooting and tactical driving courses, off-road driving, mud bogging through swamps, boating, and lots of travel by car, bus, metro, and plane, from the Georgia family farm to the streets of Atlanta, D.C., NYC, Philly, Dallas, Phoenix, Portland, and Seattle to trail running in the San Juan Islands, fishing on a mountain lake, skiing in Colorado, hiking trips in the Arizona desert, romantic beach walks with my wife in Virginia Beach and the Oregon coast, a cross-country move, construction projects at home, and mowing the lawn. Personally, I absolutely love my KUHL pants and recommend them 100%. I think they’re awesome! Just watch any of my videos, and you’ll see that I’m wearing KUHL pants every time, including years before I became affiliated with KÜHL.

How To Choose The Best Concealed Carry Holster

What is the best concealed carry holster for you

There are hundreds, if not thousands, of holster brands out there. Some are awesome, and some are absolute dumpster fires. (Never buy any holster from Uncle Mike’s, Versa Carry, Proud Right Wingers, or Urban Carry.) The thing is, really great brands that don’t have affiliate programs are very often completely left off of “Best Concealed Carry Holster” lists, simply because there is no financial incentive for the author or “influencer” to mention them.

How to Mount Esstac KYWI Pouches | The Ultimate Esstac KYWI Guide

Esstac KYWI pouches pistol rifle and triple rifle pouches in black multicam and multicam black colors with esstac logo

Esstac KYWI pouches are some of the most popular rifle and pistol magazine pouches on the market. The “KYWI” in the name stands for “Kydex Wedge Insert,” and you pronounce KYWI like the kiwi fruit.

The confusing thing about KYWI mag pouches is that there are a bunch of different mounting options. Each option is designed for different applications, so if you order the wrong type, it can be annoying. If you’ve never messed with MOLLE pouches and MALICE clips, you may not know how they work or how to use them. It can be puzzling, trying to figure out what attachment system is right for you.

How To Build An AR-15 Lower Receiver In Ten Easy Steps – Video Guide

Palmetto State Armory Lower Parts Kit

Whether you’re a first-time AR-15 builder or a seasoned pro, this post is for you! This guide will help you through the process, including photos to reference. The biggest advantage of buying and building a kit like this is that it doesn’t actually contain the “firearm”, which in this case is a stripped lower receiver. That means it can ship directly to your house without messing with background checks, waiting periods, and other nonsense. This kit doesn’t come with an upper receiver, charging handle, or complete bolt carrier group. Those are all parts of the AR upper receiver and are usually not sold in lower parts kits like this one.

Dango M1 Maverick Wallet – Hands On Review

When it comes to wallets, there are about a million options out there in the wild these days. Tons of great brands, unique styles, different materials, and more. A wallet is a way of carrying the essentials, as well as showing off whatever personal style you have. Some guys hate wallets and would rather carry a Zip-Loc bag full of their cards (talking about you, Camp), while other guys have a wallet for every day of the week, plus even more. If you’re in the first category, Dango wallets probably aren’t for you. If you’re in the latter, or basically anywhere in between, keep reading.

Resqme Car Escape Tool With Seatbelt Cutter & Glass Breaker: The Cheapest Life Insurance You Can Buy!

Let’s say, hypothetically, you’re driving to work early one morning, like you have done a thousand times before… It’s a little rainy and foggy, but nothing too crazy. You’re sipping coffee and trying to force yourself to feel more awake. As you come around the corner, a deer runs right out into the road and forces you to swerve to avoid hitting it. The good news is you missed the deer; the bad news is you clipped a tree and ran the car off the road, into a flooded ditch. During the crash, the car rolled and is now resting on its left side, taking on water. Your seat belt release is jammed, and you are effectively trapped. What are you going to do?

Mantis X10 Elite Firearm Training System | Review By A Professional Shooting Instructor

I’ve spent a lot of time around guns, both professionally and recreationally. During my time in the military, I was a member of a sniper team, the Virginia National Guard Shooting Team, and the All Guard International Shooting Team. During my service, I earned the Distinguished Rifle Badge, as well as the Distinguished Pistol Badge, which made me the second soldier in the history of the Virginia National Guard to achieve that honor. I am currently a firearms and tactical driving instructor. I say all this to say that the Mantis X10 is the most effective marksmanship training tool I have ever used, period. It’s an easy recommendation, especially if you are an instructor yourself.

Seekins Precision SRS Rail Bipod Attachment Point

The Seekins Precision SRS, or Sling Rail Stock, is proudly made in the USA and comes in several different sizes that have been precision CNC-machined out of 6061-T6 billet aluminum. They are also Type III Class 2 Hardcoat Anodized for a matte black finish.

In simple terms, this little piece of metal adds a four-slot Picatinny rail to your otherwise bare stock. The Seekins Precision SRS Rail featured in the above video and in this article is the 2-inch version, specifically for H-S Precision stocks like the one I have installed on my Remington 700. The other sizes available are 3-inch for McMillan and 2.5-inch for Bell & Carlson to precisely fit the existing sling swivel holes in the stocks.

Slim Metal Survival Tools that Aren’t Cheap Junk – Grim Survival Tools

Grim Survival Tools Grim Key Card Fishing Kit and Spool Tool

In a world full of “survival kits,” I’m always a little leery to mess with them. Over the years, I’ve seen a lot of credit card-sized tools and products marketed as slim survival kits. The reality is that just about all the metal kits I’ve seen have been made out of cheap steel that bends or breaks during the first use. When a set comes pre-cut, like a model kit, once you pull one of the tools out, you can’t put it back. The overwhelming majority of kits like this should be avoided.

Grim Survival, on the other hand, has put some serious time and thought into their products. These are tools that not only can be used, but they can be used more than once. Each tool is literally the thickness of a credit card, but they pack serious functionality into that extremely slim package.

TrainingSights – Seriously Effective Teaching Aids For Any Marksmanship Instructor

Training Sights With SIRT laser pistol and Snap caps-01

As a firearms instructor, I spend a lot of time explaining the importance of proper sight alignment and sight picture. There is a reason these aspects are part of the core fundamentals of marksmanship. If your sights aren’t aligned correctly, your bullet impact is going to be somewhere you did not intend for it to be. In training, when shooting at paper, this is a minor issue that can be corrected. In reality, if you had the same sight misalignment in a self-defense shooting situation, it could mean the difference between hitting your attacker or accidentally hitting an innocent bystander.

I’m not going to go into detail about all the basic fundamentals of marksmanship in this article – just understand that proper sight alignment is extremely important. If you are a firearms instructor, you have probably spent a significant amount of time drawing pictures on targets, holding up your fingers like castles, and drawing in the dirt to try and explain the concept of “equal height, equal light” to a group of novice shooters.

I Tried to Destroy My Bastion Gear Every Day Carry Pens…and FAILED!

Shotgun vs Bastion Gear edc pens featured image

In a world full of “tactical” pens, Bastion Gear has taken a more elegant and refined approach to the subject of high-quality EDC pens. Their sleek designs and clean lines are a stark contrast to other EDC pens available that look like Swiss Army Knives or some kind of alien technology.

The idea for these pens is simple: high-quality stainless steel and carbon fiber pens that will survive the apocalypse and keep on writing. Bastion Gear has certainly nailed it with these two pens. The interesting thing is, even though the pens have only one specific purpose in mind – to put ink on paper, they are both capable of incredible feats of strength and usability far beyond everyday writing tasks.

If you don’t have a whole lot of the assets I just mentioned, Bastion Gear makes some really high quality, laser-etched custom parts that take all of about thirty seconds to install and don’t require any special tools or gunsmithing knowledge. You can change the overall look and feel of your guns with several different options for pistols, as well as AR-15 rifles.

Maglula UpLULA Review | The Best Pistol Speed Loader On The Market

Maglula UpLULA universal pistol speed loader

What’s the worst part of shooting besides picking up brass? Loading magazines…especially when it’s freezing cold outside, and you’re trying to fight a 9mm round into an *almost* full mag, just to have your thumb slip and then get cut by the magazine feed lips. Ask me how I know…

When you shoot a lot, it inherently means you load magazines a lot – that is a very tedious and time-consuming process, which is annoyingly paramount in the whole shooting experience. Depending on how good at hand-jamming mags you are, you’re likely going to spend about half to three-quarters of your time on the range loading magazines rather than actually shooting.

So your options to help bring that wasted time down include hiring a dedicated magazine loader, who is likely to demand $15 per hour…OR pick up some kind of speed loader.

There are several speed loader options available, ranging from completely useless to absolutely amazing.

L.A.S.R. App – Laser Activated Shot Reporter Software Review

Laser app shark thumbnail (1)

What if I told you that you could set up actual targets, shoot something from your training gun beyond just hearing the sound of the striker or hammer falling, and actually get split times, groups, scores, and more? The L.A.S.R. (Laser Activated Shot Reporter) App does just that! L.A.S.R. works by using a webcam, as well as your phone, tablet, and laptop-integrated cameras, to watch targets that you specify. It is looking for laser impacts, and when it sees an impact, it records the location, splits times between impacts, and emits a hit or miss sound effect.

Dry firing is just about the most boring thing you can do in firearms training. The problem is that dry firing also happens to be one of THE BEST ways to drastically improve your shooting. So, how can you make dry firing more exciting than watching paint dry and avoid feeling like you’d rather be doing literally anything else?
