Hands On Review With the BLACKHAWK Diversion Waxed Canvas Satchel

Hands On Review With the BLACKHAWK Diversion Waxed Canvas Satchel

| August 17, 2015 | 0 Comments

I believe there are four stages of learning something: theorizing (thinking), practicing, training, and doing. For most of us, self-defense never reaches the “doing” phase, so we spend most of our time theorizing, practicing, and training, in descending order. Most people spend the majority of their time theorizing, fewer practice at home or at a static […]

We also spent quite a bit of time talking with Chris Laack from BLACKHAWK! He was one of our favorite people in 2014, as he understood the concept of […]

Out of everyone we talked to about discreet EDC bags at SHOT Show, BLACKHAWK!’s Chris Laack understands the subject the most. As far as we know, Chris was the only person we talked to in both 2014 and 2015 who carries and trains with an AR15 pistol carried in a discreet bag. He also has a […]

BLACKHAWK! Diversion Carry Racquet Bag Review

BLACKHAWK! Diversion Carry Racquet Bag Review

There’s a lot to love about bags purpose built to carry firearms. They tend to be made out of more durable materials, have padded interiors that protect your firearm and break up its outline, and usually have heavy-duty zippers and pulls. One problem with most “purpose built” bags is that they look like bags meant […]

There’s a thread over at WarriorTalk (the forum for Gabe Suarez’s training division) stating that the BLACKHAWK! Diversion racket bag is sold out and no longer in being made. They are no longer making them….that is why. We got the last ones and sold them out. I contacted Chris Laack, Product Marketing Manager at ATK […]

SHOT Show Day 1 was a great day to talk to companies making discreet carry bags, and I had some great conversations about Glock SBRs and .300 Blackout directly with AAC. The crowds were COMPLETELY bonkers, and it was difficult to talk to everyone I wanted to. We also had to jockey for photographs, so […]

Thanks to this blog and my other blog I was able to get access to the 2014 SHOT Show as a media representative.
