Stretch, Wrap, and Tuck

Hopefully the preview image gives you some hint as to what Stretch,Wrap and Tuck is referring to. Long story short, it’s probably the most affordable tourniquet out there and if all else fails it can be used as an effective pressure dressing. Because I haven’t used one I can’t attest to said effectiveness and make...

Ducati Signature Series

Now that Oakely is back in nearly full effect it seems they’ve already hooked us up with a Closeout offering we can pass on to you. I have a dumb head so I look like a dope in Oakley Fuel Cell Sunglasses. If you can pull them off, they’re a truly badass-looking pair of shades....

a Maxpedition first

Let’s hear it for Maxpedition on a Monday. I’m doing my best not to give them all of the attention, but also don’t want to get too far behind on showing off their new stuff before even more new stuff is released. Today we talk about a first for Maxpedition as they have released a...

a second chance

It would seem that another batch of interns was unleashed at the 5.11 Tactical Factory recently. Really I have no basis for this assumption and it’s highly unlikely but I find it to be a lighthearted way to introduce their “Factory Second” merchandise. Typically a factory second would be treated like a down and dirty...

VertX Phantom Ops

Thursday post, here we go. And it’s about pants. Oh man. I think bags and backpacks are the easiest to talk about because of the variety of designs and features built into each piece of gear. I was trying to stay away from those for a minute so you’ll notice some flashlight and knife posts...

Tactical and Stylish

Who ever said the two had to be mutually exclusive? The thing is, when you’re a tactical gear junkie, even the most mundane MOLLE gear can be attractive. Sometimes you just have to appreciate the design and craftsmanship even if it’s something you’ve seen over and over. One category of gear that might confuse so...

TALON Grips

Almost titled this blog post “Glock Mods – TALON Grips” but then decided that wouldn’t be fair because TALON Grips offers their products for a variety of handgun brands. Having learned to shoot on the Glock platform it’s often my go to for discussion or examples. So, although I’m going to post the product installed...

Mini Scout

So I had an inkling to talk about weapon mounted lights (flashlights) today, but I wasn’t sure which one (or even which brand). I recently received a pistol mounted light after it was on backorder for a good while. I decided to save that one for a later date as I’ve only given it a...

Oakley Assault

I’d like to report an assault. Oakley has managed to infiltrate the LAPG website. Long time shoppers might recall seeing the brand way back in the day. If so, that would have been over three years ago. In my brief stint at the LAPG offices I remember bringing up the brand for one reason or...

Rocky softshell

Welcome to the Thursday post. Assuming you stop by the blog everyday, I do more assuming and guess that by Thursday your interest is waning. If you’re not here often then I’ll simply advise that I usually save my “better content” for Monday, Wed, Friday. These choices are mostly based on how I feel about...

monsoon incoming

Fear not, I don’t mean the weather phenomenon. Since I’m no meteorologist I would just be making it up anyway. When I see a Maxpedition Overstock product pop up on the website I do feel confident enough to bring it to your attention. The Maxpedition Monsoon Gearslinger was featured way back in 2011 as part of...

heat those sheets

A while back I admitted to being on a “survival kick” as I was posting up a lot of camping, prepping and survival gear. Since then it’s been more of a gradual constant and the need to be prepared and plan ahead is also constant. I’m not predicting any crazy apocalypse and I’m starting to...
