CONCLUSIONS
I want to thank Evike.com for supplying this pistol for a review. So what do I think? This airsoft pistol is pricy at over $200/pistol. But bear in mind this is a fully licensed airsoft replica of John Wick’s gun. Let me repeat that, it’s John Wick’s gun. and it’s a damn accurate replica.

Except for some striking inn-accuracy I found. That 99.9% of airsofters won’t care about.
• This replica weighs 9oz less than the real TTI2011. Without the magazine, the EMG replica weighs 285g
• This replica has a 3.5-4lb trigger, not the 1.75-2.5lb trigger of a real TTI2011.
• This replica has a stippled texture molded into the polymer grips, not the grip wrap found in the TTI2011.

CVLife 4-Reticle Reflex Sight

with No Comments

How well does a $30 Reflex Sight perform? Will it hold zero? CVLife makes some of the best budget shooting accessories and optics and they sent me this model to review. Like other Sureshot clones, this suffers from the benefits and shortcomings of the open Reflex design: Maximum visibility but minimum protection from the environment.

Missouri Tactical Sub2000 Recoil Pad

with No Comments

A review of the Missouri Tactical Sub2000 Gen2 Recoil Pad. It really helps to reduce felt recoil on the KelTec Sub2000. It slips easily onto a stock Gen2 buttstock and attaches firmly. Missouri Tactical sent me a sample unit after watching my Sub2K recoil hacks video. And even provided a Coupon Code: Moondog for free shipping on orders from their website.

MPOW HP102A Bluetooth Hearing Protectors

with No Comments

MPOW HP102A

• NRR 29dB 

• AUX 3.5mm audio port

• Bluetooth

• Phone compatible with built-in mic

Inside this box you’ll find the earmuffs, a micro-USB cable, and 3.5mm stereo audio jack, instruction manual, and a marketing promo card, and a warranty card, it has a 2-year manufacturers warranty. 

Now I purchased these with the hopes that they might be a replacement for my Howard Leights. I recently did a video comparing them to Walker’s Razors. I was looking for electronic ear-muffs that had blue-tooth connectivity so that I could hear any phone calls coming through at while at the range and be able to take a call without having to take off my ear pro. 

And these are bluetooth enabled ear muffs and you can sync to a phone and make and receive calls. But sadly they don’t offer the electronic ambient sound enhancement technology of Howard Leights or Razor’s. They feature what I thought might be external microphone ports but sadly they aren’t. 

I tested them using this 120 decibel vaccuum cleaner. They did indeed reduce the external sound by about 29 decibels. An NRR of 29 is better than Leights or Razors 23 decibels but far short of the NRR of 34 or 39 of some non-electronic passive protective earmuffs. But they are on par with 3M work-ears and other industrial grade hearing protection that also function as audio headphones. 

But as audio headphones they fall short. They aren’t as loud as my audio or gaming headphones.

Twod Gun Socks

with No Comments

Maybe it’s a family heirloom, a WW1 or WW2 battle rifle or it’s that fancy over-and-under you saved up for. 

Whatever, chances are you’ve accidentally knocked it over at least once while reaching into the back of your safe for that odd box of ammo. This is why you need to store your rifles in a sock it adds enough cushion of protection that keeps it from getting scratched when two rifles knocking into each other or the side of your safe.

Containing silicone oil, these socks protect your gun from moisture as well as scratches. Available on Amazon

A Bore Snake Followup

with No Comments

In my previous video, I talked about how easy it was to clean a rifle bore with a bore snake. But I wanted to clarify that I never meant to imply it was the only tool you needed to clean your firearm. Far from it. You still need to periodically do a thorough cleaning with rods, brushes, solvent, and really get in there to make sure your firearm will function reliably.

UTG Ambidextrous Holster

with No Comments

The UTG Universal Ambidextrous Holster is a budget nylon holster that’s surprisingly well built for a holster than retails for about $10. 

WHAT IT IS AND WHAT IT IS NOT
If you’re looking for a concealed carry EDC holster, this is not it. Nor is it a Combat Ready High-Speed Low-Drag holster. This is a budget utility holster. I wanted this to carry a purely secondary firearm that’s secure but accessible. It’s the better alternative to putting a pistol in your pants or jacket pocket where things could snag on your trigger.

SOLID CONSTRUCTION AND MATERIALS
First I noticed was the solid feel of the construction. The sides of the holster are quite firm and solid feeling like leather inside the nylon shell. Not like some more flimsy nylon and neoprene budget holsters. Its’ on par with budget holsters from Condor, Blackhawk and a bit of a step up from Firedragon or UTG/Leapers older nylon holster from about 10 years ago. 

LOOK FOR SAGGY AND SNAGGY EDGES
What you want to look for is the edges of the mouth of your holster where the pistol enters the holsters. You especially don’t want soft material flopping along the edge near the trigger. You don’t want any material to accidentally snag you trigger as your holstering your weapon and causing an accidental discharge. This new holster is quite firm but over time materials can soften (even leather) so keep an eye out for that if you choose any soft-sided holster. 

Marmot 2MOA Red Dot

with No Comments

It appears to be a near-exact copy of the Bushnell TRS-25 but at half the price. It passed all of my use and abuse tests and the only negative I have for it is a bit of a nit-pick; the mounting screw is too long and pokes out. Seriously, they couldn’t afford to put in a 2mm shorter screw?!

It’s available on Amazon for about $39 https://amzn.to/3mh3g8P

Walker’s Razor vs Howard Leight Impact Sports

with No Comments

I can’t stress enough how important ear-pro is. Use any legitimate hearing protection when firing your firearms. Electronic ear protection is a leap in functionality from simple ear plugs and standard earmuffs.

Bear in mind, electronic earmuffs but they can sometimes be advertised as electronic noise-canceling earmuffs. This should not be confused with Active Noise Canceling headphones used to listen to music (Bose, Sony, Beats, etc.) Those work by creating mirror sounds that cancel the offending background droning sounds like an air conditioner or jet engine. Those music headphones can NOT be used for gun sports.

Electronic Earmuffs work by passive noise reduction like non-electronic earmuffs; by simply blocking loud noises with the sound-deadening insulation. The electronics instead pipe in ambient sounds from outside the earmuffs, until a noise exceeds 82dB; they electronically shut-off the mics in an instant. Both reduce loud noises, reducing gunshot sounds (approx 155db) by about 22 decibels (dB) to approximately 133dB. Their Noise Reduction Rating (NRR) is the amount of decibel noise reduction they offer.

Howard Leight Impact Sports
• Directional Stereo sound amplification 
• NRR 22dB
• 3.5mm headphone jack
• 2 x AAA batteries (~350hrs)
• 4hr Auto Shut Off 

Walker Razor Slim
