As you may have figured out or had read earlier this month we did not go to SHOT Show 2015 but we did watch as much coverage as we had time for. Our top 5 things we are excited for in 2015 is (in no order) Magpuls release of AK furniture  and the D60 AR style drum mag   Geissele and their release of an ever needed AK trigger.   The Leupold DEVO The Leatherman Tread GLOCK MOS   I am very excited about the reviews planned for the GEARS Crew this year.

First I would like to say Happy New Years as this is the first post in 2015. A number of people have been asking where we have been the past few weeks. The Crew has started the New Year with a bang and we have just been busy getting everything ready to go for reviews and some other awesome things we have planned for 2015.

Poll: What does your range offer you?

Typically there are three different types of ranges a shoot can go to. A range open to the public, a range that is members only and requires a yearly or monthly fee or land you or a friend owns that you normally shoot on. Today we are polling about what your range offers you and your shooting experience. If you shoot on your own land or a friends land please only answer that part of the poll. The polls have been split between Public and membership ranges. Please select all that apply to your range.   Tweet

Talon Grips for Glock 21 Review

2014-12-03-15.33.26_thumb.jpg

I have been provided the materials needed for this review. However, my opinions are entirely my own and I have not been paid to publish positive comments. I was contacted by Talon Grips to review their product for my Glock 21. Introduction Gun stippling has become a main stream feature that people get on their pistol grips for pistols and rifles. It is for better hold of the grip in all situations. Although some people will stipple their grips at home, most choose someone with more experience in the field, so they don’t damage the grip. Talon Grips has a more cost effective method with their self adhesive gun dependent grip tape.    Testing I am not a competitive shooter, in the military or law enforcement. The times I am holding my firearms are not typically really tense moments where I am feeling like I am losing the grip of my … What you’re missing….

Olight R40 Seeker 1100 Lumen Flashlight Review

2014-11-06-14.09.42-1_thumb.jpg

I have been provided the materials needed for this review. However, my opinions are entirely my own and I have not been paid to publish positive comments. I have been carrying a few flashlights with me where ever I go for the past few weeks. People keep asking me why so many. I’m reminded of this joke… A Texas Highway Patrolman pulled over an elderly lady for speeding. When he went to the car, he asked for her driver’s license, and proof of insurance. The lady took out the required information and handed it to him. In with the cards he was somewhat surprised (due to her advanced age) to see she had a conceal carry permit. He looked at her and asked if she had a weapon in her possession at this time. She responded that she indeed had a .45 auto in her glove box. The Patrolman could … What you’re missing….

Poll: Do you include gym training to improve your shooting technique?

Do you workout and train in the gym to help improve your shooting technique?

Growing up I was a competitive swimmer and one of the things taught is how to have more control over your heart rate and how to slow it down with breathing exercises. This has helped me not only in the water when swimming laps or lifting weights at the gym but also at the range. I love being in the gym almost as much as I love being at the range. I have noticed that while I am doing more of my cardio and getting fitter that my shooting has improved. My follow up shots at distance are quicker and more accurate, since my heart rate is slowed and my breathing is less. This has also helped me have better focus when I am moving and shooting.
