Promag magazine vise block

Promag magazine vise block

Here is something I think is pretty nice if you ever have to work on your AR or if you are planning on building an AR. The vise block lets you work on your AR locked in a vise so your gun doesn’t move. The block is made with a durable black polymer so it will hold up to years of use and is designed after the standard AR-15 .223/5.56NATO magazine and just slips into the mag well and locks in using the rifle’s magazine catch.

Kel-Tec KSG

Kel-Tec KSG

I was asked to write about the Kel-Tec KSG bullpup pump action shotgun. From what I have found, this will be made for civilian purchase too. I like the thought of bullpup’s for a PDW (personal defense weapon) simply because it is a full size weapon in a “smaller package”. In America, the bullpup design isn’t that widely purchased in the civilian market according what I have seen and read. I haven’t once been to a range and seen someone with one, and when at stores or in the gun shop the only ones I have seen have been the FN P90. While researching this shotgun, I found that Kel-Tec reinforced the cover on the action with 1/16” steel, to protect the shooter. Should the gun have a failure, this should force the failure to blow down through the rear ejection port towards the ground and away from your head. … What you’re missing….

The .50 BMG

The .50 BMG

L-R: .50BMG, .30-06, .308WIN BMG stands for Browning Machine Gun. This round was designed by John M. Browning around 1900.  He had the idea for the round during World War I for the need of an anti-aircraft weapon. The round is a scaled-up .30-06 bullet in design. I am not going to talk much more history on this round because I simply don’t feel like it. This round has had its hand in everything from being mounted to airplanes and helicopters and Humvee to being used in Sniper Rifles. The M2 .50BMG a.k.a.   “Ma Deuce’” Barrett M82 This round held the worlds longest confirmed kill by Carlos Hathcock in Vietnam War and then his record was beat by Canadian Corporal Rob Furlong in 2002 with a McMillan Tac-50 using some US military .50BMG rounds he was given after running out of the rounds he carried out with him.

10mm vs. .40 S&W

10mm vs. .40 S&W

Left to right: 10mm, .40S&W My father purchased the contents of a storage building a few years back and as I was helping him clean out the building and empty the boxes I found a few boxes of 10mm rounds. being someone who collects different rounds I come across I put a few in my collection and put the rest of the rounds in my safe. The 10mm and the .40 are very similar in most every way but in length of the case (brass). Left to right: 10mm, .40S&W The .40 s&w was designed after The FBI tested the 9mm and the .45ACP to replace their  .38 spl revolver with a semi auto pistol because it could carry more rounds and would be easier to reload in the field. during the testing the Special Agent in Charge of the FBI Firearms Training Unit John Hall  included the 10mm round, … What you’re missing….

AR Magazine Lock

AR Magazine Lock

I was talking to someone the other night about the AR platform and they were asking my take on the rifle and how far it has come since its introduction into the US military in 1963 and long story short he asked about locking the gun up and after talking a bit about a gun safe he asked about locking the weapon itself up so it couldn’t be loaded with a magazine. Now this got me thinking about the locks on the market I had seen and most of the ones I had looked at were cable locks and so I figured I would look and see what was out there for the AR and this was one I liked for the shear fact it slides into the mag well and also blocks the barrel from loading of a round. This is the GunVault AR MagVault Rifle Lock. the price … What you’re missing….
