Would you like to learn AR marksmanship under the tutelage of world-class USAMU team members? Then consider attending the Civilian Marksmanship Program’s Rifle Small Arms Firing School (SAFS), held Wednesday, July 16-17, during the National Rifle and Pistol Matches at historic Camp Perry. SAFS courses have been conducted at the National Matches since 1918. Hundreds of rifle participants are expected this year.
The Viridian C5Lis small. It was designed to fit under the barrel of subcompact pistols. There’s not a lot of real-estate down there. The C5L is so small that it looks a bit undersized on a Glock 19, but it isn’t. While most lights will barely fit under the 19′s barrel, the C5L has extra room.
The housing on the C5L is made of aluminum. The attachment points are polymer. The C5L comes with multiple sizes, so it can be fitted exactly to almost any gun. A simple knurled bolt secure the light to the rail. Simply crank it down with a flat-head screwdriver and you’re good to go.
When you start researching buffer springs for an AR15 you run across sever different springs, and buffers. The other thing that you run across is other AR15 owners telling you that you are trying to fix a problem that doesn’t exist. In reality, they are correct. The traditional buffer system works as designed. But there is one thing that many AR15 owners do complain about, the infamous “cheese grater” noise when shooting.
A simply incredible time-lapse video, released just in time for Veteran's Day, has captured the transformation of a homeless United States Army veteran.
Taurus has released a new 9mm carbine onto the US market, which prompts the question: why do people buy 9mm carbines?
As I see it, the interest in this type of gun comes from two main groups: folks with tactical reasoning in mind, and purely recreational shooters. For the former, 9mm carbines offer magazine compatibility with a service pistol, and allow greater range and accuracy than that pistol while still being within the confines of a small cartridge.
Polymer framed pistols. The market is full of them. They’re inexpensive to produce and easy to use. Most are designed for defensive use, though some have genuine tactical potential. Yet there are so many available. How can you begin to tell them apart?
The fallback for most of us is hands-on-experience, but the company’s reputation is almost as influential (and more so for some). There’s Ruger’s blue-collar constituency. Smith & Wesson leveraged their revolvers’ reputations to earn their loyal M&P fans. Springfield Armory’s XD line has a devoted following, but nothing to compare to the rabidity of Glock owners.
