I figured it was about time I reviewed one of my own products. Moondog D-Fog helps defog your eyeglasses and safety eye protection. While no product completely eliminates fogging, Moondog D-Fog dramatically reduces the formation of condensation on your lenses.


Tippman Airsoft Mask

with No Comments

For anybody whose eyesight requires corrective lenses and plays airsoft, the most common issue is finding EyePro that allows them to wear their eyeglasses. And even for those that are able to wear contacts, the risk of a lense popping out during a game or getting dust, sand, or debris in your eye outdoors has its own fun challenges.

It’s been extremely hard to find airsoft google or a mask that is large enough to allow the user to wear their eyeglasses. One rare exception is a new airsoft mask from Tippman Tactical. This mask features much of the same features as Tippman’s JT paintball masks, including user-replaceable, double-layered goggle lenses providing extra protection from impact and reducing fogging on cold days.

Tippman, the company that practically invented recreational paintball, has begun developing airsoft-specific gear (a bit late IMHO) under the subbrand, Tippman Tactical. With decades and decades of experience in developing competitive goggles and masks, they recently come out with an airsoft mask that utilizes metal mesh for the faceguard; eliminating the possibility of a stray BB slipping through the vent holes of their paintball masks.

The newest version of the Tippman Tactical Airsoft Mask is colored in an FDE (Flat Dark Earth) color scheme and sold exclusively by



Advantage Arms 22LR Conversion for Glocks

with No Comments

With pandemic ammo prices, it pays for itself in one range visit. I’ve had this Advantage Arms conversion slide kit for about 3 years now and have put through over 1000rnds through it without issue.

It is ammo finicky like many 22LR pistols, preferring CCI Mini-Mags and Remington Golden Bullets. I’ve tried Aguila Super Extra and Winchester Super X’s but these cause failures to cycle.

Glock recently came out with the Glock 44, unfortunately we can’t get that here in CA. This solution works better for me because I can use my Glock 17’s frame, with its grip and weapon light for muscle memory.

Quick-Fill Speed Loader

with No Comments

QuickFill are speed loading ammo tubes made for tube-fed semi-auto rifles, like a Marlin 60.  These will hold 22LR, 22 short cartridges. Quick-Fill also makes a version for 22 magnums and 17HMR cartridges. And a Big-Boy version that fit .38 special, 357, 44 magnum, 45 long-colt, and 41 magnum centerfire lever-action carbines. Cheaper per tube than doing it yourself (I tried and it ended up costing me like $6 per tube and about 20min of construction time), so it’s worth it to me to just buy these.


How it works is very simple. You open up the stopper end and load in 15 rounds of 22LR ammo. You load them in with the bullet end first. This is so when you empty them into your rifle’s mag-tube, they slide out, rim end first, and are oriented in the correct position in the tube. It fits into your mag-tube like your brass follower tube. You insert, tilt it and the rounds slide it.

Starting from an empty mag-tube with the inner follower tube removed. We’ll pop off the end and load it. About 5 seconds. Compare that with loading a round at a time. About 2-3 seconds per round. 45 seconds may not seem like a long time. But if you’re at a range that charges by the hour, time is money. And I’d rather use those saved minutes shooting rather than loading. But that’s me. 

One downside some have with these tubes is is that they are too long to fit into an ammo can. So don’t. Because they’re roughly the same dimensions as your mag-tube, they’ll fit comfortably nestled next to your rifle in your rifle case or bag. As long as it’s legal in your area to transport ammo in the same container as your firearm. It’s not a magazine, it’s a storage tube.

Another criticism folks have is that the tube is very light and thin to fit inside your mag-tube, so it’s not very strong. A single tube could easily bend or break. But there’s strength in numbers. Bundle a couple together with a rubber band or even tape and suddenly a fragile tube becomes a robust bundle.
