Stamp collectors, take notice. Griffin Armament announced a new silencer (suppressor if you prefer that term) today named the Optimus that looks pretty awesome. New for winter 2015 – the Griffin Optimus provides competitive flagship like performance across calibers from .22lr to .300 Winchester Magnum.

Back when I was a uniformed patrol officer, I wore my concealable soft armor underneath my uniform, like many cops still do. It can be extremely uncomfortable and gets warm very quickly. I remember being drenched in sweat after a foot chase or wrestling match with a suspect, then having to sit in front of […]
Griffin Armament is now shipping the new 30SD (mod2) Suppressor.

I should start out by noting that when it comes to carry, I choose Glock. We can argue over and back again, but my experience has brought me to this position after a long (and expensive) road. You most likely won’t change my mind, and after this, I probably won’t change yours. What is important […]
Rebel Arms is pretty new to the AR market, but from what I’ve seen, they are putting out some awesome rifles. A few months ago, I got to play around with an early sample of the Raptor Elite pistol and was very impressed. Check out Cowan’s review of the Lightning Mod II below. If you’re […]
For those of you considering taking a class with Larry Vickers in the future, heads up. LAV announced over the weekend that he will no longer allow appendix carry holsters in his classes. I’m sure some of you will think this is a great decision and others will not – whatever side of the fence […]

On the topic above, church carry, […]
