Aleene’s Fabric Fusion Adhesive Sheets Tape Review

Aleene’s Fabric Fusion Adhesive Sheets Tape Review

I like arts and crafts as much as the next person. Especially when it involves solving a gear problem. I had a problem keeping my spare magazine in one place inside of my Adidas Rydell EDC bag. I kept it inside of a long, deep pocket and the mag would slide around. Fishing it out during […]

Don’t let your zipper go down in public

Don’t let your zipper go down in public

“Hey dude, your zipper’s down.” A fellow classmate didn’t say this about my pants — but about my everyday carry bag. We were a few hours into our Active Shooter Force on Force class held by QSI Training. The zippers on my inexpensive sling bag had come unzipped about 2″. I use this bag for […]

Winter Wonderland. Not Really.

Winter Wonderland. Not Really.

Last weekend we had the opportunity to do a small, invite-only winter training sessions with QSI Training. It had been cold and snowy leading up to the weekend, and by the time we got to the range it had started snowing again. With temperatures never hitting about 16F and about two inches of snowfall during […]

This is a guest post by dolomite_supafly. We all have our reasons to pursue SBR / PDW carry; here’s one that is very, very personal. – Shepherd Let me start by saying that I take the safety of my family very seriously. We live in a dangerous world today and must do everything within our power […]

adidas Rydell Sling Bag For EDC Review

adidas Rydell Sling Bag For EDC Review

As I mentioned in my post about sling bag sizes, finding the right bag is often a Goldilocks and the 3 Bears. Some bags are too small, some are too large, and some are just right. For my AR15 pistol in .300 Blackout, the Rydell bag by adidas is just about the perfect size. This […]

Fitting a Sling Bag

Fitting a Sling Bag

If your environment and equipment permit it, I recommend investigating a sling bag type of backpack for on-body carry of SBR and PDW. The ability to access the bag while moving, and without removing the bag from your body, offer advantages over traditional two-strap backpacks. Unfortunately, finding the right sling bag can be problematic based […]

Consider a sling bag for everyday carry

Consider a sling bag for everyday carry

Up until very recently I carried my SBR AK47 or AR15 pistol in a backpack. I carried the (much) smaller KPOS Glock enclosure for awhile in a “sling” bag, but that got appropriated by The She Shepherd and I started using a hydration pack. For the purposes of transporting a rifle or similar weapon, the […]

I purchased this bag at Wal-Mart for about $25 in 2006 to be a super lightweight bug out / response bag. At the time I carried three Glock 33-round magazines inside plus a first aid kit and some emergency supplies. I later upgraded my kit and the bag sat in the Box of Bewildered Bags […]

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 […]

Rethinking how I lock my rifle bag

Rethinking how I lock my rifle bag

| August 13, 2014 | 4 Comments

Last December I wrote a post about keeping your bag locked while in public. I rode on public transit and worked in very close quarters for quite some time, and I didn’t want people getting access to my SBR AK47. As time went on and I changed jobs, I kept the habit of locking my […]
