SHOT Show 2017: Day 2 Video

SHOT Show stands for Shooting Hunting Outdoor Trade Show, It is held at the Sands convention center at the Venetian Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas NV USA. It is a private INDUSTRY ONLY show. As media, we are invited to come out and see all the new firearms in the Industry so we may bring you the viewer new content.

DAY TWO

This quick 5 minute run thru of what we saw today.  Includes a quick interview with Dead Air Armaments.  I heard that if we wanted to see every booth in this show we could only spend one minute 18 seconds in a booth.  Bad news guys!  We aren’t going to see every booth.  But trust me when I say that we are spending time with the good guys.  Gotta go, lots to see……….

Matthew and the Leupold HAMR Red Dot Scope

A few years back I decided it was time to purchase some new glass. I owned a rather out dated red dot. Among my list of musts, was to keep my red dot, but have the ability to zoom or magnify.

Matt and the HAMR

The Search Begins

I started looking and found magnifiers and EOtech. I wasn’t sold yet on what I had seen in the market. Finally, after a long search, light at the end of the tunnel. I saw the HAMR.

HAMR First Impression

My first impression was that this thing looks awesome! I pulled it out of the box and looked through the lens.

Slim & Low Profile

It was crystal clear as I would expect any Leopold glass to look. The red dot was slim and low profile. I was happy with my purchase, without even mounting it.

Key Features

Let’s focus on the key things that attracted me to buy this scope over so many other choices on the market.

First thing, it’s made for the AR platform in 5.56. Second is the combination of a scope and red dot in one. Finally, the quality and reputation Leopold has.

Detects Motion

My favorite feature has to be how the red dot turns on. It detects motion, so the minute you pick your gun up it’s ready to point, aim and shoot.

No longer do I fumble for the switch or button. The scope has an illuminated reticle, which is a very useful feature.

Rugged Design

This is overall a rugged designed and quality product. I feel sure this is something that will last me a life time.

Video Tuesday!!! Vltor: The True Stock Options

Today we look at 6 Vltor stocks in Black, FDE/Tan and Foliage Green. Vltor sent the IMOD and the EMOD stocks for us to test on the #WindhamProject.

I love the fact that the EMOD stock has the battery compartment for my CR123s. 

The IMOD stock is smaller so it has less of a foot print in your safe or hard case but still has the beastliness of the EMOD to handle anything you throw at them.  

The #WindhamProject is a Windham Weaponry RMCS-4 AR which is chamber in 5.56, .300BLK, 7.62x39mm, 9mm and .22lr. We have grabbed some of the most awesome parts of the gun industry to help us better customize this rifle and show you how to can turn this rifle from something awesome to something EPIC and drool worthy at the range.

Video Tuesday!!!Blackhawk Cutaway Omega Vest and TacProGear Review

Blackhawk and Tacprogear

Sometimes you just need a big knife and tactical vest. This is one of those times. Like I said, I do really like the gear. However, as someone who was never military or a three gun shooter, I don’t really care all that much to wear MOLLE, unless I have a need for it. This vest has been coming in real handy while reviewing the #WindhamProject.  We are firing thousands of rounds through this rifle. The MOLLE vest makes it easier to keep mags closer for speedier reload time.

Something I failed to mention about this vest, is that is it mainly made with a mesh body.  That makes this vest breathable. This is nice in the Texas sun when you are wearing it for hours on end.

I also keep my Leatherman MUT on my vest, which you can see on the left hand side of the screen when looking at the vest.

The video below is of the OPSGEAR guys using the cutaway system.

The Operators Suppressor Systems (O.S.S.)

“110 year old suppression technology does not perform for modern operators. The next generation in suppression is here.” – Operators Suppressor Systems

An Intro to Suppressors

Since we are on the topic of suppressors, let’s shed some light on the new suppressors in the market with a quick simple introduction.

The suppressors I am talking about is the patented Generation V Flow Through Technology, made by Operators Suppressor Systems located in Murray, Utah.

Introduced at ShotShow 2016

First introduced at ShotShow 2016, the Generation V Flow-Through Technology, is a patented state of the art suppressor.  I believe this will change how suppressors will be built for the years to come.

The Elite

Right now there are two types of OSS suppressors in the market. The first type is the Elite.  The Elite is built for a fully automatic rate of fire. The Elite can withstand six cycles of 8 thirty round magazines with 5.56 ammunition on full auto. This suppressor is forged to withstand the extremes of full-auto fire.

OSS BPR and OSS SRM

 The Helix

The next suppressor in the market is the Helix.  The Helix is designed and built for tactical, professional, hunting, and sport shooters demanding the best reduction. The “plug and play” also makes it convenient for you to fit on the barrel.

5.56-Helix-Carousel-Image-4-1-1200x600

Calibers

The available calibers in Elite, and Helix are;

5.56

7.62/30 Cal.

The .338, 50 Cal. and “Machine Gun” calibers are still being tested.  These calibers are scheduled to be released later this year.

The Helix and the Elite suppressor designs are both exclusively designed with the patented Generation V Flow-Through Technology and the rights are owned to Operators Suppressor Systems.

Stay tuned on how these suppressors work!
