It’s too early to be an April Fool’s Joke. Magpul just announced the shipment of their anxiously awaited, 10 round AICS compatible magazines. The mags should be showing up at dealers shortly. Unfortunately, Magpul does not have them for sale on their site yet. Hopefully you have your “notifications” in place at your favorite online retailer. These are sure to go fast.

I purchased the OR Cirque™ Pants before the Mammoth Sniper Challenge. My teammate and I were competing in the “Extreme Tough-Man Division”. We arrived a day early and chose to camp out. When we crossed the finish line, I had been living in the Cirque™ pants for four days.
We hiked with 50 pound packs, crawled under barbed wire, ran up obstacles, slid down earthen berms on my backside and a number of other tasks. I was sure that these pants would be trashed when we were done. They held up amazingly. Continue reading Outdoor Research Cirque™ Pants
Firearms safety is a serious matter. We strive to get it right because the one time we get it wrong, could be the last. This week we talk about “ND Gate” over the Travis Haley Negligent Discharge video. To be as fair as possible, we have included the statements released by both Panteao and Travis Haley.

We are back with Season 5 of “Mail Call Mondays”! Thanks to all of our viewers for putting up with us for this long. This week we discuss the SHOT Show Industry Day at the Range. This was held the Monday prior to the SHOT Show at the Boulder City Range. It was a great time and gave us the chance to get “hands on” with some new gear. Make sure you also check out our 2016 SHOT Show Playlist with videos from the show floor. We will be adding more videos every couple of days until we have exhausted our footage. Also stay tuned for our Shot Show Recap article.
We have used and reviewed a variety of chassis systems for bolt action rifles. At this point you would think that we would be tired of breaking out our test-action and bolting it into another. However each time we try a new chassis, we find things we like, dislike and may have never considered before. When American Built Arms contacted us to take a look at their Mod*X chassis, we humbly accepted.
The AB Arms, Mod*X Chassis is an “AR Type” chassis system. It utilizes an aluminum center section that accepts AR type buttstocks and pistol grips. The forend tube is similar to the railed hand guards used on AR rifles, but uses a proprietary attachment, unique to the Mod*X. Standard AR rail systems will not work on the Mod*X.

I have worn a belt daily since Boot Camp. It just became a habit. It became even more necessary when I started carrying a firearm as part of my routine. Belts usually serve the sole purpose of holding up your pants or keeping your firearm where it belongs. A good belt can do both at the same time, but that is about where it’s usefulness ends. That is why we were excited when a package from Alpenlore Adventure Belts showed up at our door. Alpenlore Adventure Belts produce a novel belt that doubles as a survival kit.
