Blauer Clash LT Boot

I’m not much of a boot fan.  I’ve been wearing them almost all of my professional life, but I prefer a low ankle athletic design over a high collar boot any day of the week.  Boots do serve a purpose; they protect the foot and ankle better than a low cut shoe but they give […]

Unity Tactical ATOM

Handguns are the staple self-defense tool for nearly every single person reading this article. As much as we may want to have a rifle on hand in the event of an attack, it’s impractical and unlikely. Because of this, handgun technology has continued to improve at a steady pace, ammunition, metals and polymers, sights, triggers, […]

S3F Solutions MK-601

One of the allures of the AR15 design is the relative ease to which you can swap out the upper receiver.  Having a quality lower receiver is important, but for most purposes you only need one and then it’s as easy as pushing two pins, maybe changing out the buffer spring and buffer and suddenly […]

Electronics have become, for better or worse, a way of life for most people. Between cell phones, tablets, laptops and other portable devices, our dependence on electronics has never been greater. With portable electronics comes batteries, and managing battery life between charges, a fact that you iPhone users know especially well. So today we’re going […]

Blue Ridge Holsters CAMO Hybrid

A few months back, I worked a trade with a friend of mine and wound up with a brand new Glock 21, and it needed a home. I wanted to start carrying it, even though its size isn’t to be desired inside the waistband. Knowing this, Brandon, el Patron de Monderno, set me up with […]

MSR MiniWorks EX

When Brandon sent me the MSR MiniWorks EX water filter for review, I was initially very excited.   No, a water filter is not as sexy as a gun or some new piece of tactical gear, but I did not previously have a water filtration system, aside from the PUR attached to my sink faucet, and as […]
