Once you shoot suppressed, there really is no other way to shoot.  Anyone who shoots, especially AR platform rifles, knows that a short time of shooting can lead to days of ringing in ones ears.  Que, the RECCE 5 by Griffin Armament.

kac 556

Anyone who is serious about weapons and their use in not so friendly places knows who the Knights Armament Company (KAC) is. They have been in the industry for 30 years supplying the US military with some of the best gear you can buy.  Recently, I got to spend some time with the Knights Armament QDC silencer.

Support the Hearing Protection Act

ASA

The American Suppressor Association has been working diligently to remove suppressors (i.e. silencers) from the National Firearms Act.  The Hearing Protection Act of 2015 was introduced in October 2015.   H.R.3799 states, in summary, “This bill amends the Internal Revenue Code to: (1) eliminate the $200 transfer tax on firearm silencers, and (2) treat any person who acquires or possesses a firearm silencer as meeting any registration or licensing requirements of the National Firearms Act with respect to such silencer. Any person who pays a tax on a silencer after October 22, 2015 may receive a refund of such tax.”

The American Suppressor Association was formed in 2011 by the suppressor industry with a number of goals.  First and foremost, they support and promote pro-suppressor regulations and laws.  They have been instrumental in lobbying for the legalization of suppressor ownership and to legalize suppressors for hunting.

EAA Witness Elite Stock III Review

20160410_174016_resized

By: Cary Kieffer

 

I’ve always been a fan of Witness pistols, the CZ style pistols for me have excellent point ability. They just seem to naturally line up for me fast and shoot very good groups. I also am a die hard fan of the 38 Super, so the two together made it impossible for me to turn down when the Sportsman’s Guide had the hard to find Elite Stock III on sale. I always wanted one of these and when I got her home the advertisement just didn’t do her justice. Let’s take a closer look at this beauty.

PSA 9mm AR Pistol Build Review

20150321_103304_resizedBy: Cary Kieffer

Did you ever want an AR in 9mm? I did and for a lot of reasons they make sense. Generally, I am a Rock River and SIG 516 fan and they make up the bulk of my rifles. I did want to build a budget beater PSA 9mm AR and preserve my two 1000$ plus dollar Rock River 9’s. I started with a PSA 9mm AR pistol kit and a stripped receiver. Let’s see how all that turned out.

Southern Precision Rifles 6.5 Creedmoor competition rifle

I just received my 6.5 Creedmoor from master builder, Greg Young at Southern Precision Rifles.  I commissioned this rifle with Greg for use in PRS club matches.  And of course, being from Texas, it will certainly see some hunting use!

Manners Composite Stock for Savage

20160222_115705.jpg

A while back I picked up a Savage Model 12LRP in 6.5 Creedmoor.  The rifle came from the factory with detachable bottom metal, an HS Precision Stock, and for a mostly inexpensive rifle is well equipped.  But right away I found issues I did not like with the factory configuration.  The barrel on this rifle is a fluted bull barrel that is 26″ long, so getting into and out of a vehicle is cumbersome.  Also, the HS Precision stock had a low comb and was in fact chipped near the bottom of the stock.  Both easily fixed and minor, but I did not like it much.  I had received an extended magazine release and 10 round mags from Dark Eagle Customs which worked very well, but I was not satisfied with the rifle to this point.  I decided to take the rifle to the next level and contacted Manners Composite Stocks.

Gemtech Trek Review

20160206_165045.jpg

I love surprises.  I especially love surprises when it comes to being proven wrong, in a good way.  The first weekend of February I went on a great predator hunt in Ozona Texas and I decided to take a few items with me to review a long the way.  Look here for the story on www.texasoutdoorsnetwork.com.  I had intended on checking out several other silencers but had specifically wanted to use a direct thread 5.56 silencer of a different make.  However, the only one available at the moment was the Gemtech Trek.  I had my heart set on another can, and when I was handed the Gemtech I was disappointed.  I had not heard anything about this little can before, and frankly thought it was heavy and unappealing.  However, 

Kimber K6s Revolver Review

Kimber introduced the new K6s Revolver at SHOT Show 2016 and Tactical Gun Review was there to try it out first-hand.  Kimber had a booth at Range Day and it was a beautiful, if windy, day at the Boulder Pistol and Rifle Club.  Jason and I headed over to Kimber soon after arriving to see what all the buzz was about.  Kimber introduced a revolver?

Kimber produced the K6s Revolver primarily as a concealed carry (or backup) weapon.  Despite its small size, it packs six rounds of .357.  It will, of course, also accept .38 Special.  Specs:
