Tactical Stocking Stuffers: 2018 Holiday Guide

Tactical Stocking Stuffers: 2018 Holiday Buying Guide Dumping out your stocking on Christmas is usually one of the more anti-climactic portions of the morning. If you’re like me, your stocking is usually filled with the silly little things that your wife or kids saw in the checkout isle because they realized they’d forgotten about filling your stocking.

Spray & Pray: Custom Paint Your AR-15 For Under $15

You could send your prized rifle off to get it custom-finished and go without the ability to hit the range with it while you wait for them to send it back in all its Cerakoted glory.

Scope University: Red Dot Sights vs. 1X / 1.5X Prism Scopes

WHAT YOU SEE SHAPES WHAT YOU’LL GET The red dot sight dominates the American rifle market. It is impossible to know how many red dot-equipped carbines ride along in police cars, are carried by soldiers on patrol in faraway lands, and bust clay pigeons and ring steel at shooting ranges every weekend across the USA.

But the red dot isn’t perfect, and it isn’t the best optic for every shooter. The red dot plus magnifier combo battled the low power variable optic in this Scope University article, and now it must defend itself again. A new class of compact, lightweight 1x prism scopes are comin...[ Read More ]
