Freedom Sale

Make no mistake, it isn’t freedom that’s for sale. Freedom has come at a hefty cost. Our wise founding father’s got the ball rolling with the Declaration of Independence and it’s been quite a ride since then. A holiday sale doesn’t cheapen the true meaning of the day as long as you at least take...

it’s a mystery

I’m never sure when they’ll pop up but when they do it’s worth mentioning. If there’s a rhyme or reason as to when they pop up then again, it’s a mystery to me. Either way, you get what you get. It’s Sunday June 22, 2014 and I’m looking at the “IN STOCK” icon lit up...

bag or case?

You could make an argument for either but really it’s a little bit of both. It makes sense because the bag you choose to carry your laptop shouldn’t be light and pliable like a clothes bag might be. You want the carry ability of a bag that’s not over sized or bulky, but does afford...

Combat Application Sling

Blue Force Gear. Hopefully you’ve heard of the brand. If not, now you have. Also, if you own a rifle or more than one and they aren’t equipped  with slings then it’s time to get in gear. I should just tell you to hurry up and buy one because quite honestly, if you won’t have...

less time loading

It’s difficult to find something that sucks about going to the shooting range (besides other people), but there’s one thing most of us could probably agree upon. Loading magazines sucks. Ever seen a new shooter with a new handgun mag trying to get the last two rounds in there? You’ve probably helped them. Pistol or...
SOG Flashback

SOG Flashback

We aren’t going to go back in time here, but speaking of time if feels like it’s been a while since we talked SOG Knives. We have featured a lot of the “old” designs which are serious tried and true staples of the brand. I could have picked another one of those staples but I...

scaled down assault

If you own a so called “3-Day Assault Pack” then you already know what you’ve gotten yourself into. If you don’t have one, I don’t mean anything bad by that. This style and size of pack seems to be rather popular. You might also hear them called 72 hour packs which I hope is pretty...

a little short

So, the Wednesday post this week was supposed to be reserved for today, Friday. I managed to mess up on the dates of our Wise Food sale that started last weekend so that post ended up being useless. As such, I’m short one blog post according to my own posting plan. As such, here I...

Resqme Car Escape Tool

Another tool in your toolbox. That’s more of a figurative saying than literal in most cases. If you decide to pick up a Resqme Keychain Car Escape Tool then that will certainly be the case.  The creators of said tool call it a “Must-Have for all motorists.” Clearly they want to sell as many as they...

shirts and pants

Gotta have em. Can’t be running around all nimbly bimbly with your birthday suit on. That is unless you’re looking for an express trip to the local detention center. Please, think of the children. Now let’s be clear. You don’t have to spend the big bucks to accomplish the task of protecting the public from...

the overstock fairy

On track for another slow to no blog week but I felt compelled to throw at least on post up here while I inhale my first cup of early AM coffee. It looks like they email blasted those on the list so it may be old news. If you missed it, it won’t be. I...

5.11 Forecast 2014

Shot Show 2014 kicked off 2014 and here we are in May already. I guess you could call this a late forecast for the year 2014 and really it’s just a brief glimpse/preview from 5.11 Tactical. The coverage is care of Milspec Monkey who I feel provides some of the best Shot Show coverage. He...
