Chambered in .300 Blackout with a 6″ barrel, collapsing stock, and special bolt carrier group, the Honey Badger was meant to be an extremely compact carbine that could easily switch back and forth between supersonic and subsonic due to its suppressor […]

For me, 2014 was the Year of the Blackout. In an effort to reduce weight I gave the AR15 platform a chance. My experiment succeeded, and my AR15 pistol is my EDC. However, short barrels aren’t great for 5.56 and so that led me to .300 Blackout. In summary, I learned a lot this year […]
