Yukon Outfitters Overwatch Tactical Sling Bag First Impressions Review

Yukon Outfitters Overwatch Tactical Sling Bag First Impressions Review

I am a big believer in one-strap bags worn across the body. They offer a good mix of retention, support, and accessibility. Of all the one-strap bag types (messenger bag, satchel, laptop bag), my favorite is the sling backpack. At $30 – $50, the Overwatch by Yukon Outfitters is an overtly “tactical” bag with some […]

3×3 Review: QSI Training August 2016 Partner Tactics

| August 9, 2016 | 0 Comments

QSI Training’s Partner Tactics class represents the top of their curriculum. It incorporates almost everything they teach and then adds another person to the mix. As usual, Erik Pakieser and his team did a good job extending what students have already learned and applying it to the focus of more advanced classes. Some of the material is specific […]

Solo Active Universal Tablet Sling Bag for EDC Review

For the last three years I’ve carried an SBR or PDW in a bag every where I’ve gone with a few notable exceptions. Flying, going into federal buildings with metal detectors, and a half dozen other times such as attending SHOT Show or going to a professional sporting event. I’ve used the Adidas Rydell bag […]

Hands On Review With the BLACKHAWK Diversion Waxed Canvas Satchel

Hands On Review With the BLACKHAWK Diversion Waxed Canvas Satchel

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 […]

As I wrote earlier this week, I completed a QSI rifle class with my MasterPiece Arms MPA 930SST short barreled rifle (SBR). One of the final drills of the day is the “passthrough,” wherein students try to combine everything they’ve learned while engaging targets at multiple distances. The Drill This particular passthrough focused on using […]

I attended the QSI Training basic rifle class last Saturday with The She Shepherd. My goal was to test the MasterPiece Arms (MPA) 930SST “Mini” MAC10. I had test fired it a few times but hadn’t trained with it yet. The QSI basic rifle course is designed for civilians acting alone in a domestic environment. […]

MPA 930SST SBR Test Fire Review

MPA 930SST SBR Test Fire Review

I finally got a chance to test fire my MasterPiece Arms 930SST very short barrel rifle (vSBR) last weekend. It took a long time to assemble the 930SST due to issues attaching the vz 58 stock. The 930SST makes a good vSBR, but unless you’re on a tight budget or are the Do It Yourself type you might […]

BLACKHAWK! Diversion Waxed Canvas Satchel First Impressions Review

BLACKHAWK! Diversion Waxed Canvas Satchel First Impressions Review

We saw some great bags at SHOT Show 2015 this year, including the 5.11 Box Pack and the Vertx Commuter Sling bag, the latter we wound up purchasing. 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 […]
