So here is TD2: The temps and the sun were much improved as we started day 2. Always a huge morale boost. We started shooting from the 5ish yard line again and this time used some targets from Ballistic Radio. They had an outlined chest box around the heart area, as well as a modified box around the eyes, but not the traditional "T" set up. I can't seem to find pics of them to link to. The drill involved was a "shifting gears" sort. Two rounds fast to the chest box, raise to eye box and...

AAR Green Ops Practical Pistol and Competition Skills

AAR for Practical Pistols and Competition Skills Course put on by Green Ops on August 12 at the NRA Range in Fairfax.

I learned a lot and walked away a better shot and have a solid lesion plan to train on my own. If given the chance to take a class or...

RFI-AR15 Pistol flash can/muzzle devices update

Commish ·
Please feel free to move if needed. I recently finished an AR pistol project, and have been trying to find up to date information on flash cans and muzzle devices. I am wanting to move the sound/flash from a pistol length barrel away from the shooter. The latest that I could find was from 2014, and the battle comp was the big thing then. I am more interested in a flash can proper, but could be educated if something accomplishes the goal better. Is there any newer information on here that...

EDC and shirt holes

Dak ·
Not sure what forum this fits best under so I'll start here. I noticed that my summer shirts were getting holes in them. All of the holes were in the same place - front right side. No idea why this was happening. Finally, I figured out that carry AIWB was causing the pistol to rub against the shirt enough so that it was making a hole. So, to fix that I found some iron on material in a fabric store. I cut out a piece about 8 ½ x 11” and centered it about where the rear edge of the slide would...

Noveske KX3 or KX5. A bit heavy but very effective. I would expect that the Surefire Warden & AAC Blast Jacket provide comparable performance to the KX3/5, but I've not played with them.

Having tried a couple of options, we ended up going with the PWS CQB Comp. In addition to pushing the blast forward of the shooter, it is effective at reducing the muzzle flash as well. Unlike the open ended devices like the flaming pig, it has four tines on the end, similar to a flash hider. Regards. Mark

A lot of companies make blast shields that move blast forward of the shooter, similar in concept to the KX3/5. I use a Griffin Armament one on my 10.3" pistol AR, and it does force all the blast forward. It's also stupid loud, and kinda dorky looking, but it does the job for a decent price.

On my 8” 300blk I ended up doing a damage industries brake and flash can. It is heavy but functions well IMO. I looked at a few options and the AAC, KAK, fire pig all seemed to be about the same thing but cost 3x as much and were just blast deflectors. I have been happy with the damage ind. and would do it again. Brake runs ~$18 and the can is like ~$30 so all up I was under $50 shipped. I haven’t shot other flash cams to compare it to but the damage set up is a ton more pleasant to shoot...

Two or three summers ago, I was fortunate enough to shoot with a well known instructor on his personal range. I was using a 10.5" 5.56 upper with a Battlecomp. The muzzle blast was so ferocious, I was told that if I were to use that combo in one of his classes, I would be asked to either change out the Battlecomp, or leave the class. My shooting buddies also remarked on the muzzle blast and impressive fireball with that combination. I took the hint and changed to suppressors. I thought about...

Comped short barrel rifles can be BRUTAL to people on the left and right of you on a firing line. I've seen the re-directed muzzle blast from an AR take a ball cap of the shooters head immediately to the left of the comped gun before. I have one that borders on criminal to fire within about 15 meters left or right of another human. G3A3 with a 6 port comp and 16" barrel. Its like a magazine fed flashbang. Do NOT fire a comped rifle in a shoothouse. indoor range, or even on a range under...

Without recommending for or against, I'd look for more info along these lines: Compensator Shoot-Out http://modernserviceweapons.com/?p=1047 When doing a in the dark or low light shoot, letting people see what the various devices or do put out is interesting. It is usually pretty interesting to see where the A2 flash hide comes in.

If it was rubbing bad enough to make a hole over time, how bad were you printing? Have you noticed any difference in your weapon printing after you have applied this "mod"? I would think you would notice a slight reduction. Dave

Didn't seem to be that bad in a mirror. It's a Glock 19 in an eidolon and I don't have a gut pushing the pistol out. �� It does seem to print slightly less, but, not that much to begin with.

Can't speak to the size because I was only locking up a mid-size 9mm with a WML ... I've been happy with the Hornady Security safes. I had the key version in my truck, a co-worker had the RFID version in his. I moved it to a family member's ride when I put another permanent option in my truck.

Have to check the brand, but Academy twofer specials with numerical cylinder combination locks. Set the locks to a vehicle number so I wouldn't have to remember it. Avoided key locks because i didn't want to add a key to the ring or to lose somewhere. About the only time it gets used (rarely) is when I have to run into the kid's school for a minute, so it is just barely enough "security". Probably the opposite of what you want, but I don't trust electronics in the temperature extremes of the...

If your vehicle has a center console storage compartment... check out Locker Down or Console Vault. They are vehicle specific so they might / might not have what youre looking for. Just PLAN on bolting thru the floor pan of your vehicle rather than "just" following the installation instructions.

I can't suggest any particular brands or products, but - once you've narrowed down your options - I'd suggest checking the Yoot-Oob for lock-picking videos featuring your choices, just to ensure that bypassing the lock isn't child's play.

First spear makes a three mag pouch. Esstac makes a quad, or can make a quad with a call. Theirs are great, but you need to mod your own retention flaps if that is something you want.
