Matt and the H&K 45

unnamed_thumb.jpg

A New Writer is in the House! Hello my name is Matthew. Today I’m mostly going to be talking about the H&K-45 tactical. For starters I have been an avid shooter since Boy Scouts, 14 years ago. I have thoroughly enjoyed shooting many different guns. Boy Scouts was mostly limited to rifles.   First Handgun One day I decided it was about time for my first handgun. So I hit the range and started renting guns. Experimenting with Different Rentals The first gun I picked out of the case was the S&W M&P. Then I saw the F&N 45 Tactical staring me down. I came back a little disappointed. A Kind Range Officer The range officer said here, try this out. He handed me a beautiful H&K 45, as I put a firm grip onto the HK I fell in love. Never have I felt such a comfortable grip in … What you’re missing….

The GEARS CREW are back at it again, saving the world from the evils of ectoplasm and the Ghosts who cause it. CMMG was kind enough to send us out the conversion kit to test along side the #WindhamProject.  We wanted to bring the caliber count up from the stock 4 calibers of 5.56NATO,7.62x39mm,9mm and .300BLK to a fifth caliber with the .22lr conversion kit. Gears of Guns Versions of the Kit CMMG makes a few versions of this kit to handle the left handed rifles. Just swap this drop in conversion with your bolt carrier group and you will be ready to shoot .22LR.  Ships with 25rd 22LR magazine. All Stainless Steel Construction, includes a 25rd Magazine. [from CMMGs website] Training|Learning|Graduating I think this is an awesome training aid. Trying to introduce people who have a fear of guns and mainly a fear of the AR platform can be … What you’re missing….

The Coolest Yeti Roadie 20 Cooler Review… Today

The Coolest Yeti Roadie 20 Cooler Review… Today

I have to say, as an owner of over 15 different coolers, this is my best cooler to date. The Roadie 20 is great for range days or car trips.  This Yeti is for when you don’t need to keep all your food and drinks together for a month long safari. The Yeti Roadie 20 is small, but when you are carrying out as much gear for a range day as I do, you don’t want a monster ice chest taking up space.  In our Texas heat, you just want something that will keep your drinks COLD!  This fits the bill. We can fill this Yeti with 16 bottles of water and 10 pounds of ice for a day trip. You can pick up your very own at the link below: this is an affiliate link where we make a small commission on sales.  This is one way that you … What you’re missing….

Video Tuesday!!! TAOFLEDERMAUS Playing with rubber bullets

Peg12GL_thumb.jpg

Taofledermaus tests out a Stabili-Shock rubber shotgun slug are super sonic speeds. While this test isn’t full of data and number it does paint a very clear picture of what happens if you do not properly load less-than-lethal rounds. I do like the fact that he emphasizes that LE need to chrono the rounds if they plan on using them.

Specs Name: Franchi LF-57Manufacturer: FranchiDates Produced: 1956-1960’s  Place of Origin: ItalyType: Sub GunCaliber: 9mm (9x19mm parabellum)Action: BlowbackRate of Fire: 500 Rounds Per MinuteManufacturing: Stamped metal I like to post guns on Name this Gun that are different and odd looking when I can.  I just find this to fit the bill for me. It just looks overly bulky. I am not really someone who cares to collect rare and odd firearms.  I like to be able to enjoy the use of my firearms and if I derp up and break something, I want to be able to fix it without being shunned in the collectors community. With that being said, I would still like to get my hands on a functional Franchi LF-57 and take it for a test drive. From what I understand, Franchi didn’t produce all that many of them. Apparently they just produced a small batch for … What you’re missing….
