When it comes to defending your home, it is hard to find a pistol that is better suited for the job than the Beretta M9A3. Today, there are a few more things that people want out of their home defense pistols. Options are key to satisfying the market of people wanting to defend themselves. Some of the things people are looking for are not as reasonable as others. However, the Beretta M9A3 hits that nice balance of features and characteristics that make it a terrific choice.
The Sig P239 is one of the latest pistols that Sig Sauer has discontinued production on. This comes at a time when single stack pistols are typically thought to be better as small and darn near micro in size. The P239 came in at a time when pistols came primarily in full size double stack varieties. The P239 was designed to be a step down in size and weight, and thus satisfy the demand on the market for a smaller pistol that still shoots like a full size pistol. Well, now times have changed. Pistols overall are able to be smaller and lighter thanks to modern technology and understanding metals and materials. However, I do not think that the new and improved pistols on the market offer the same things that the P239 still offers today.
It has been a while since I last wrote on this blog. Things have been crazy in my personal life and I am finally getting my groove back and getting content out there for my awesome viewers and readers. For today I have a few subjects to cover such as practicing to get your proficiency back on point, reloading lessons, and an update on the SAR9 from Sarsilmaz.
Recently I purchased the standard AUG stock and 7 magazines for it. One magazine is the 42 round magazine which is always the starting magazine, on purpose. When I ordered the stock and the magazines, I was wondering if the magazines would actually fit any of my magazine pouches as well as my AR magazines.
I'm sure that many of you reading this article have seen and used this piece of equipment while serving in the military at some point or another. This is the system I learned Combat Marksmanship with in boot camp. I learned how to crank out speed reloads and I wore this along with the old school flak jackets. This is a new and unused M88 Enhanced Load Bearing Vest. I got this piece out of nostalgia and then came to realize that it was worth analyzing its use and effectiveness compared to the current standard molle systems.
It is a common interest for those wanting to carry concealed to want a compact pistol. Their size is easy to conceal and most of them on the market are pretty easy-going on the recoil. However, it is also a common theme for these people to get sucked into standards that are niche and unnecessary. I want to explore some of these using the firearms displayed in the featured photo. This is not meant to promote or sell any brand or type of pistol, but to help people understand the real story behind these different types of compact and subcompact firearms.
When I first started getting into the world of bullpup rifles, I was looking at the Steyr AUG but wasn't sure that it fit all my needs. The magazines were expensive and hard to come by, and the rifle was not well reviewed by those who already had a bias against bullpups. It is hard to find credible and knowledgeable reviews on bullpups anyways since few people understand the platform. However, I have found that the criticism is solely around this illusion that speed is the key to everything and intuitive function comes second to thinking lightning fast makes up for shortcomings of the more popular rifle designs. Anyways, I wanted to give an update on my experience with the Steyr AUG NATO and some of the changes I have made in how I run it and its function while shooting.

The Remington Ultimate Defense is quite obviously a repackaged Golden Saber. What many people don't know is that there were minor improvements to the Goldensaber design in the form of altering the led in order to get it to the right ratio for the desired results to be consistent through a variety of velocities/barrel lengths.
In many of the videos on YouTube, you might notice that the reviewers lay their MRE contents out on a tray as if it is to be a cafeteria meal instead of a field ration. This is quite odd considering that many of these folks actually have used them in the field in the military. My goal is to discuss how you will typically find yourself using an MRE when you use it in the field like in the military. Before I write about this, I think we should start with a bit of a backstory on the history of how the MRE came to be.
There is a new pistol coming to the market in late 2018 known as the Lionheart Regulus. This is actually a series of pistols with customizable options like frame and slide sizes, sights, different color frames and barrels, etc. This pistol is not by any means meant to compete with low cost pistols from Ruger or Taurus, but rather to go in line with high end options on the market like Wilson Combat, Zev, and others..
