Jeremiah Savoy is a craftsman. In a world filled with nylon and kydex, Savoy Leather still creates made to order, handmade in the U.S.A. leather holsters. I ran into his handiwork on Instagram late one night and instantly began following and admiring his work.
We are not known for knife reviews. In this day and age it is easy to focus more on calibers, barrel lengths, whats hot and whats not from the biggest and best. However, one of the things most people nowadays know and talk about is their EDC or Every Day Carry.
We all have to start somewhere when it comes to building our first rifle. The AR15 is a sexy place to start. You pick out all of the pretty little gadgets, grips, stocks, rails, optics and anything else that gets you excited. You always end up with something that makes every gun owner’s bottom lip quiver.
Eye Protection is an important part of shooting safety. From basic things like the sun and dirt to fouling and carbon, blowback, flying brass from you and other shooters, it’s endless. Making sure you have have your eyes covered is a start, but high quality Eye Pro can benefit you in many ways.
I decided to check out the Blackhawk Talon Thumbhole Stock and see how well it performs. The Talon thumbhole stock is incredibly comfortable to shoot, and the recoil reduction system works very well, and could come in handy if you’re doing a lot of shooting on a particular day.
We get asked a lot about carrying firearms. We also get asked to review a lot of holsters and rarely do we do them simply because there is never much differentiating between brands, just mainly styles. For the most part we validate fit, finish, material quality and above all the company itself. But that’s usually where it ends.
We have been asked to review .22 conversion kits for the AR15 for quite some time. This is not really a review as much as an overview of what they are. We felt that comparing a conversion to a true .22 LR upper receiver was the only way to truly show you the right decision and that review will be coming up shortly.
I had a bit of a rocky start with it, with questions of it’s reliability, sturdiness and overall functionality. See, in an AR-15 platform, all I have ever known is metal, metal and more metal on the inside of the rifle and adding plastic pieces internally was not exactly my idea of sturdy.
If you have never heard of Magpul then I can’t help you. Magpul is one of, if not THE leader in polymer products for the AR platform as well as many other accessories. From stocks to grips, rail covers, sights and slings, and let us not forget the PMAG either.
The first time I heard of FIREClean it was pitched to me as a “carbon repellant.” Now I know a lot of people are as skeptical as I am hearing terms like that thrown around when talking about a new product. I really didn’t take this seriously until I started using it on a regular basis.
