The Q Honey Badger, Noveske Ghetto Blaster, and the SBS Briefcase Build Walk Into a Bar

In 2011, AAC announced a very short barreled rifle prototype called the Honey Badger. 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 […]

YouTube channel viewer PerfectTangent asked What informs your decision to carry a given bag with a given weapon on a given day? Situation? Taste? This article will address why I choose the bags / tools to carry at any given time. This is not an article about what I look for in a bag (see this […]

A problem with shooting an AR15 left handed while gripping the magazine well

When shooting rifles, I’ve been trained to extend my supporting / non-shooting hand as far along the handguard as possible. This results in more support for the barrel of the rifle, and helps to even out the weight distribution of the firearm. However, in training with very short barreled rifles / PDW for a few […]

I advocate filming yourself during fight-focused firearms training for many reasons. Training is a physically, mentally, and emotionally taxing experience. The objective eye of the camera will help you go back and see what you did right and wrong long after the class is over. This was especially obvious to me when reviewing my footage […]

How the SIG 556xi Concealed Bag Deployment Video Should Have Been Done

How the SIG 556xi Concealed Bag Deployment Video Should Have Been Done

| August 18, 2014 | 1 Comments

Two weeks ago, SIG Sauer released a video of their 556xi rifle being deployed from the SIG MPX Deployment bag. According to SIG, the video was not meant to be “tactical,” but any time a big company puts out material like this I’m inclined to analyze it. Before we go any further, here’s the video. It’s […]

On Saturday, August 2, 2014 The She Shepherd and I took the advanced rifle course offered by QSI Training. You can read the full write-up about the class if you haven’t already. I’m not going to summarize the class again, but focus on the hostage rescue drill we did. Since I only do fight-focused training, […]

Brace Yourself

Brace Yourself

When I first read about the SIG SB15 AR15 buffer tube brace I rolled my eyes. Yes, the original intention of the brace is a noble one: allow veterans who were incapable of firing an AR rifle or pistol due to injuries secure a firearm to their bodies in a such as way as to […]

Basic Rifle Class: Some Lessons Are Tough Lessons

Basic Rifle Class: Some Lessons Are Tough Lessons

I have taken several basic rifle courses from a few folks, and many from Erik Pakieser over at QSI Training. Yesterday I had the privilege of taking Erik’s first basic rifle class of the season. I took this opportunity to run my AR15 pistol chambered in 300 Blackout. In addition to wanting to practice my […]

Using a laptop sleeve to avoid printing

Using a laptop sleeve to avoid printing

One of the strongest advantages of a purpose-built bag is that they are made of heavy, durable materials and have a lot of padding inside. These attributes protect your firearm and accessories inside, but also serve to break up the outline of your gear. There’s a famous picture on the Internet of a woman carrying […]

Let’s Be Brief: My Briefcase AR15

Let’s Be Brief: My Briefcase AR15

My primary firearms instructor told us: “we don’t carry pistols because they are powerful. We carry them because they are convenient.” Ever since hearing those words and reading about short barreled AK47 rifles I’ve been trying to shrink rifles down into a weight and size convenient enough for everyday carry. My latest attempt is an […]
