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

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 […]

Barrel length has a severe impact on .223 velocity. Make sure your ammunition reliably expands when shot from your vSBR / PDW at the distances you intend to shoot. You might be surprised at how low the FPS need to be to expand. Guns & Ammo ran an experiment where they started with a 26″ […]

EDC Bag 90 Day Challenge

I started carrying a PDW everywhere I went in mid-2012. I received my first NFA stamp in January 2013, and have carried an SBR or PDW since. I’ve used a few different bags, but they all shared something: they were “common” bags that were designed to carry something other than a firearm. I stayed away from bags that […]

Solo Active Universal Tablet Sling Bag for EDC Review

| June 15, 2016 | 1 Comments

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 […]

Back to the AK, that is. I started my first two SBR projects about five years ago. One was my now failed Glock enclosure project, and the other was a Mini Draco AK47 SBR. I carried the Mini Draco for some time before opting for my AR15 pistol in .300 Blackout. The primary driver for […]

When is a rifle a pistol?

When is a rifle a pistol?

While concealed carry is usually abbreviated CCW for Concealed Carry Weapon, there are very few states that allow rifles or shotguns. These permits should be called CCH or CCP, but I believe the term CCW is so common that’s how people refer to any permit. So, if permits only cover pistols, how can you legally carry […]

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 […]
