Snipers are becoming an increasingly valued weapon in the mountains and deserts of Afghanistan. A definite renaissance of sniping is being seen across the front lines of war. The sniper was such an effective tool in Iraq that the sniper’s tactical comeback in Afghanistan is being facilitated by the mounting concerns over the number of civilian casualties in Afghanistan caused by collateral damage from coalition air strikes. This has made the sniper the military’s most cost effective, discriminating fighting machine in the Global War on Terror.

Each state has the right to make its own laws within reason. This poses a problem for travelers. It is often difficult to keep track of 50 different sets of laws and the case-law that dictates how they shall be enforced.

Have a pint! Have some fun. But if you are going to tie one on, don’t drive!
A special shout out to our friends at IrishShooter.com!
While at the 2013 SHOT Show we got a chance to take a look at a very innovative new AR accessory from LAW Tactical. It’s called the AR Folding Stock Adapter.
The current version is labeled as “Generation 2” but in fact the copy we just received has more improvements from the one seen at the SHOT Show. Law originally had a flush cup receiver machined into the bottom of the adapter. They have now updated that with a steel insert. This should add some service life to the part as well as increase the amount of force needed to rip a sling from the weapon.
We just pulled the adapter out of the Mailbox yesterday. Keep an eye out for the installation notes and full review, coming soon!
