A lot of great articles from Max and DTG on night fighting and low light considerations. We would like to piggyback on their shirt tails, adding in some additional thoughts .
Why do object seem to fade out or disappear when we stare right at them at night?
This is called the “Night blind spot”. It is Located in central viewing axis (fovea), the Absence of rod cells in fovea creates the blind spot. The “night blind spot” encompasses a viewing area of 5 to 10 degrees center of your visual field of view.....
Requirements: Rifle and or Pistol, glass / cup preferably a mug with a vertical handle, water.
Firing on the move can be broken down into smaller technical sections i.e. target identification, firing, moving, situational awareness, and reloading. Below we will focus on the movement portion of firing on the move.
Movement and firing with a firearm is much different than static firing. Moving and shooting adds in more challenges for the shooter.....
Sierra12 was out at Ben Avery Shooting Facility today with TACCON USA http://tacconusa.com/ . We test fired the drop-in ready fire-control system. The device is one of the best fire-control systems I have ever used in an AR platform. The assisted trigger reset gives....
J-Comp Type 89 muzzle device
During this weekends familiarization fire we used a new muzzle device from Strike Industries. The muzzle device is based off the type 89 Japanese assault rifle. I was a little skeptical at first. ....
Check out some new morale patch ideas, let us know what you think. We made these samples at Mutiny Shop
We reviewed the SHIELDSAK by LOKSAK a month or so ago. We picked up another product from LOKSAK, this is call the OPSAK...that s a lot of SAKs. This SAK is all about keeping things sealed in or sealed out. I've been using it lately to seal out the water while listening to pod casts in the shower.....

We just purchased a .22 Cal SENTRY ALARM MINE trip wire alarm. This device will hold a single .22 blank ( Home Depot Ramset type blank). This device will not hold a live round.
We will be using these in select training events. Keep your head on swivel.
There is a lot of writing in our community about fitness, and rightfully so, it is very important. The root of the Shoot Move and Communicate game is not Shoot, it is Move. From JM's dreaded PT admonitions and stories of personal workout standards and load bearing abilities, to Max’s seemingly impossible ruck humpin' program. What you've probably not read, I certainly haven’t, is any article about fighting fitness, not for a young Airborne Ranger, but for a middle-aged guy looking to shore up his defenses and up his chances in a hostile world. All the better if that article is from the perspective of a guy who will tell you straight up about his warped path from “Army Strong” to wheezing, overweight slug and back again. I’m that guy.....
We recently did a live-fire test on AR500 Armor’s level 3 Advanced Shooters Cut steel plate during one of our recent training events. My initial thoughts were that the plate would stand up to several strikes, and I was very happy with the end result. AR500 Armor test video
We placed the AR500 LVL 3 ASC plate at 25 yards, 5 shooters, firing a mixture of ammunition:
You should pick the zero for your weapon that is best suited for your AO. For me, I go back to basics, what I was taught in USMC Boot Camp, 300 yard BZO. For others a 100 yard zero might be the best due to equipment constraints such as bullet drop compensating reticles.....
Think Sustainability- got S4 (logistics) covered? Might want to think long term usability. Short article to follow.
