The Missus and I just returned from 5 days of fun in Fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada. We planed a last-minute vacation with another couple; stayed on the strip, saw the Grand Canyon, went to Hoover Dam, lost some money, all that good stuff. The part I want to share with my readers is “The Vegas Machine Gun Experience” from Discount Firearms and Ammo.

I’m taking a carbine course this weekend and expect to burn through 800+ rounds of 223 with my 11.5″ AR15. I’m not really into blowing through that many reloads when I can’t find powder to make more, and factory ammo is going for 50 cents around or more. At one of my local shops I found spam cans of Norinco 223 brass cased 55 grain full metal jacket. Each can holds 800 rounds and was selling for $240. Crates of two cans were also available.

The 5.11 Rapid Assault Shirt is officially the most Tacticool shirt in my closet. At $65 USD its not exactly inexpensive, and boy is it worth the price tag. The designed originally reminded me of the Flame Resistant Organizational Gear (FROG) combat shirts that the US Marine Corps started issuing to troops in Afghanistan a couple years ago.

What I Bought
Olive Drab Green, Red, and Black, Operator Polos from LA Police Gear
I picked up 3 of LA Police Gear’s Operator Tactical Polo Shirt. I wear a polo most days both in my 9-5 job and on the range. I prefer the range of movement they provide while being a more business casual appearance over a tee shirt. Some of my favorite polos have started to wear out and are no longer manufactured, so I’m in the market for replacements. LA Police Gear says “We seriously challenge you to try and find a better polo that costs under $20 bucks that will not shrink, fade, or wrinkle”, that’s quite a challenge. I have some other LA Police Gear products and have been quite happy so I’m giving the Operator Polos a shot. Continue reading
Front sight, sight alignment, sight picture – there is common theme here; sight. Shooters need to be concerned about their sight, there sights on their firearms, identifying their target and making all of this work together. When at the range there is always some potential for a malfunction or ricochet that could permanently damage the shooter’s eyes. The solution of course is wearing eye protection, which many ranges make mandatory. Serious shooters also know that the $5 special for safety glasses at the hardware store are not going to cut it at the range. My solution is Sawfly Shooter’s Kit from Revision Military.

The Tru-Spec 24-7 Tactical Jacket was the second tacticool jacket I purchased in 2012, after the rather spectacular failure I had in the form of a Phantom by Condor. I ordered a black TruSpec 24-7 Tactical Jacket hoping it would be an upgrade from the Phantom.
