$45 “Fauxfire” Tactical Light
with No Comments

I wasn’t expecting much out of an airsoft replica Surefire. But was pleasantly surprised by how well it was built and it’s light output. It survived my 6ft drop tests into the dirt and my pressure washer, so there’s that. … Read More

CVlife 4-reticle Red/Green Dot first Impressions
with No Comments

CVLife sent me their 4-Reticle red/green dot to review. I was a bit dubious as there are soooooo many knock-offs of Sightmark’s Sure Shot reflex sight. It has become the most ubiquitous budget red dot design. I do like it’s … Read More

Maglulu at NimrodsWares.com

The Ruger 10/22’s magazine is a compact rotary design that requires quite a bit of thumb-force to push in the final couple of rounds of its 10 round capacity. To save time, I usually bring 5 fully-loaded magazines with me to the range, so loading all of them at one go can get almost uncomfortable on the ol’ thumb.

Lula is an Israeli company that makes some of the best magazine speed-loading tools available. Lulu’s design is one of the best-received 10/22 speedloaders reviewed on YouTube. Unfortunately, it’s been ‘Out-of-Stock’ on many online retailers (since COVID-19 hit.

So I did something most people don’t do. I actually hit Page 3 on Google search! I found it on Nimrod’s Wares, a company I hadn’t heard of and who had very few reviews on the web. Not only did they offer it for a lower price than CheaperThanDirt but they offered Free Shipping on all orders! I did some digging on found them selling products on Ebay where they had an excellent rating, so I figured $29 wasn’t a huge risk and I ordered it.

3 days later it shows up via USPS and here we are. I’ll definitely be ordering from them again. https://www.nimrodswares.com/maglula-ruger-10-22-s-w-t-cr22-tandemkross-22lr-loader-unloader-set-lu30b/

Feyachi FL22 Tactical Light Review

with No Comments

I’ve been looking for an inexpensive tactical light for my 9mm carbine. I’m not really looking for DevGru rugability, for nightly patrols involving door-kicking or crawling in culverts and ditches. This is strictly for “just-in-case” I have to investigate a noise in the house or at the front gate. Bright enough to ID the situation while not blinding me with reflective light or backwash.

I purchased this on Amazon.com and tested it out in this video.

Budget Bodycam Review

with No Comments

Police Brutality has been a pivotal issue and BodyCams have featured prominently in the debate and protests. But even in the municipalities that require their officers to wear BodyCams, there have been too many incidents of officers turning off their BodyCams or for them to mysteriously experience technical issues in recording.

In addition, Antifa/BLM incidents where individuals act unlawfully or in groups against other individuals. Where narratives of the situation are driven by ideology and mobs. Having a video eye-witness can help establish the truth and not just “my truth”.

For these reasons, having a personal recording device that is also discrete, can be indispensable.

What is the dirtiest .22LR ammo?

with No Comments

If I put more than 50rnds of ammo through a firearm, as a habit, I clean my firearms after every range visit. Especially .22LR which is an especially dirty caliber due to the unburnt powder leaving gritty debris and schmutz in any firearm.

But after buying a Remington Bucket O Bullets and seeing a bit more gunk coming out of the cleaning patch, I got to wondering, which ammo brand leaves the most residue in the barrel? I couldn’t find any videos on YouTube with any definitive comparisons, so I set forth to create my own.

I tested the following popular .22LR brands
CCI Mini-Mag
Remington Thunderbolt
Remington Golden Bullet
Federal “Range” Pack
Winchester Super-X

I’ve always wanted a nice semi-auto shotgun and following the adage “Buy once, cry once”, I saved up my money and bought a Benelli M2.
