Magpul Throws Some Shade(s)

by Matt • July 21, 2018

It seems like every other blog post here is becoming something about Magpul. Again, I’ll reiterate, I’m not a shill for them. I just really dig the products, and I write about stuff that interests me. Unsurprisingly, it seems like every new launch from Magpul HQ is something I need in my life at the right […]

Training Insight: Just Do Cool Sh*t like Ridgeline

by Matt • May 28, 2018

The firearms training segment of the industry is pretty stale these days. How many fundamental level pistol/carbine classes can you take? Any serious student would say “as many as you can – never stop practicing the fundamentals.” I agree with that wholeheartedly which is why I stopped doing a lot of shoothouse and force on force […]

Wiley X® Flies into 2018 with New Aviators

by Matt • February 5, 2018

While most folks at SHOT were oohing and aahing over the same old black rifles and accessories, I kept getting drawn into searching for the products that enhanced my everyday lifestyle. I don’t carry a gun for a living, but I DO spend most of my time outside whether it be on a photo shoot, […]

A Different Kind of SHOT SHOW

by Matt • January 31, 2018

[While I am baring my feelings in this post, probably to the detriment of my business, I’ve never been one to hold back. Want to know how I feel? Just ask.] I’ve gone out to SHOT SHOW for many years now, more times than some of my peers, not as many times as the true […]

Why the Gun Industry Will Be Saved by Magpul

by Matt • January 22, 2018

It’s Media Day at the Range at SHOT SHOW 2018 and I am not attending. It feels strange because Range Day is a normal staple of my SHOT SHOW agenda.  As I woke up this morning, with the plastic reality that is Vegas looming over me, I was reminded that my favorite event in product […]


I See Tiny Ghosts! New Glock 43 Slides from Grey Ghost Precision

by Matt • January 20, 2018

Remember that Glock-customization market that you were making of fun of a year or two ago? Yeah, it’s continuing to grow. Admittedly it’s sometimes for the better, sometimes for the worse. I mean really, who needs to skeletonize the ENTIRE frame on a Glock? But for the better, you have companies like Grey Ghost Precision […]

Aimpoint shotgun red dot sight review

REVIEW: Aimpoint Micro S1 Shotgun Sight

by Matt • October 30, 2017

For the most part, a shotgun is considered a point-and-blast gun. Look down the barrel, make sure it’s generally around the thing you want to hit, pull the trigger and let the shot do the work. A shotgun is a devastating weapon up close, but what about at distance? Can it be as accurate as […]

Grey Ghost Gets Grim

by Matt • September 25, 2017

I’m a fan of Grey Ghost Precision as much for the gear as I am for the people that make up the company. Quality folks all around. The team has recently announced The Grim precision rifle in 6.5 Creedmoor and that it is available to order at the Grey Ghost Precision website. I know some […]

Friends of Pat Rogers Video Recap

Friends of Pat 2017 Video Recap

by Matt • August 31, 2017

At the Friends of Pat Rogers Memorial training event this year, I decided to utilize video more than still imagery. There were plenty of great photographers attending, like Jerry Sarkody, Triple Bravo, and JW Ramp who would be more than capable of capturing the feel of the weekend. Near the end of the event, Special […]
