[Glocktober] Built for Competition Giveaway!

This Giveaway has ended. Congratulations to our winner, Julian G., right here in Houston, Texas! You can view all current and past giveaways on our giveaway blog page. Week two of Glocktober is here, and we’re changing the game with this giveaway. Last week, we presented our take on an EDC build. Compact, accurate, and faithfully reliable, our EDC pistol was built entirely around the needs of personal protection. This week, we wanted to focus on something new—something distant from the stresses of self-defense. We wanted to bring our attention to the ‘sport’ function of shooting sports. With that in mind, this week’s giveaway (if you haven’t already gathered from the title) is our “Built for Competition” Glock pistol....[ Read More ]

Even with a clear definition, few words are misused so frequently. You may hear infomercials tout it with impunity: ‘This duster broom is so ergonomic!’ or ‘Ergonomic phone case fits in your pocket!’ After a while, the word seems to lose meaning. In the end, even a brick is ‘ergonomic’ when compared to a cinderblock, right? Despite the confusion, ergonomics is a powerful word. When we talk about AR10s and AR15s, ergonomics come first. Unlike a phone o...[ Read More ]

Win This Rifle Build! Lightweight AR15 Giveaway!

This Giveaway has ended. Congratulations to our winner, Jennifer B. in Oklahoma! You can view all current and past giveaways on our giveaway blog page. You ever hear the phrase “ounces are pounds”? If you know the history of the AR15 and its offspring, you know that weight is everything. It started in Vietnam, where the M16 made its debut as a replacement to the 10lb+ M14. Trading a wood stock for aluminum and polymer, the M16 weighed 2.5lbs less than the previously-issued battle rifle, and the smaller cartridges meant soldiers could carry more ammunition outside the wire. After the war, the Military’s demand for smaller, lighter equipment continued, leading to the development of the M4, the M249, and countless other modern rifl...[ Read More ]

How to Train Your New Shooter

August is National Shooting Sports Month, celebrating all the best parts of our favorite activity: blasting holes in paper or making steel sing. While there are plenty of things to celebrate, the focus is first on all the new shooters out there who are helping our community grow and thrive. Nothing is more important to shooting sports than fresh faces, as gun-ownership hinges on spreading a positive mindset. You might have people in your life that are on the cusp of becoming shooters, but how can you help them take those next steps? Everybody has a story behind their introduction to firearms. Some start on hunts with parents or family. Some learned marksmanship in scouts or at summer camp. In my case, it came while eating a double cheese...[ Read More ]
