Like a handgun, one of the most important parts of the AR-15 for maintaining accuracy is the pistol grip. Obtaining proper alignment to the rifle, proper sight alignment, proper trigger pull and reset, and comfortable shooting and stability for follow-up shots can be narrowed down to just a few areas, and the pistol grip is definitely a critical component.

This month, Accu-Grip of Las Vegas announced their competitively priced, patented and patent pending, pistol grip improvement to the AR-15.

Eye Safety Systems, Inc. (ESS) was developed in 1998 with the intent of providing high quality eye protection for military, and law enforcement users. ESS has greatly expanded since then, and is currently the only approved eye pro provider for the U.S. Marine Corps, and also provides products for other U.S. DoD contracts and governments in over 100 countries.

VooDoo Tactical Enhanced 42″ Double Rifle Bag – A BSD Review

Recently the BlueSheepDog Crew received a VooDoo Tactical Enhanced 42″ double rifle bag to test and evaluate from TopSpecUS, an authorized VooDoo Tactical Dealer. As a sniper, and patrol supervisor, I’m always interested in a carrying case that can better serve my complex needs. I’ve seen a lot of rifle bags in my 18 years of law enforcement, and most have simply been a duffel bag with zippers and clumsy pockets. The VooDoo bag is not one of them.

My patrol vehicle is an SUV outfitted to be a mobile command post. If a critical incident develops during my shift, I’m expected to respond and establish initial command. However, if that event is an active, mobile armed threat (like an active shooter), than the admin duties are put aside, and I’m responding in with other officers to coordinate moving to engage and neutralize the threat.

Walker’s Alpha Ear Muffs SSL

Last year I was looking to upgrade a standard pair of passive hearing protection muffs, to an electronic design that would protect against the sharp crack of gunfire while magnifying sound to allow normal conversations. My hope was to avoid spending over $100, but still get a decent set of ear protection. I happened to be at a large box store when I came across a pair of Walker’s Alpha Muffs SSL.

Off of the beaten path of the SHOT Show Industry Day at the Range was a small booth exhibiting a handy series of unique AR-15 magazine holders. MagStorage Solutions is a relatively new company, but I was really intrigued by their product for organizing and storing AR-15 magazines. The MagStorage MagHolder presents a lot of possibilities for Armories, Bearcats, Gun cabinets or lockers, or Gun safes.
