Ah, spring. While those in northern climes are still suffering the last frigid blasts from Mother Nature, the rest of us are blowing the dust off guns and gear that have been underused these past few months. I’m gearing up for the first major match of the three-gun season, (and using some interesting guns — watch this space for details) staffers are heading off to test night vision and suppressors in Wyoming, we’ve got a new RECOIL vehicle build in the works, and there’s exciting events afoot in both CONCEALMENT and RECOIL OFFGRID. Looking a little further down the road for 2017, we’re scheduling wilderness trips for the fall, which should give you an idea of what’s next in the pipe for our little media empire. As this issue hits the…

freelance tactical photo-sling

The just-right sized padded sling to fit all mirrorless system cameras, most SLR's, and their lenses/accessories while integrating tactical standards. Like all our world-famous Evac™ packs, this pro-quality sling can be rotated from back to chest for quick access without losing positive control by going off-body. It’s built with our legendary durability and includes a unique thermoformed shell for breakables like batteries, a laser-cut molle/velcro panel for patches or pouches, a thermoformed back panel with storage for smaller tablets, a tripod tie-down area, and, naturally a movable divider system. There is more molle webbing on the main strap and throughout for adding our optional lens pouches/etc. and two grommets for mounting our new Hardpoint modular hardware system items such as loops, plugs, signal lights etc. TONY SENTMANAT, REAL WORLD TACTICAL…

1Camelbak’s Urban Assault is an OCD sufferer’s wet dream. Pockets for days. There’s an admin pocket with sleeves for pens, a mesh-backed stash pocket up front, a slash pocket, water bottle pocket, and two full-size compartments with more internal organizers and padding to protect a 15-inch laptop and a tablet. There’s even a hidden security pocket for a wallet or passport. Plus, there’s a small laser-cut PALS field across the front for more pouches. The back panel has a removable stiffening insert and there’re external cinch straps. Our favorite feature, though, is the bright interior that makes it easy to see what’s going on in the depths of the bag’s nylon innards. It’s perfect for the hardscape crowd who can’t bring themselves to run a messenger bag or a briefcase. MAKE: Camelbak MODEL: Urban…

saint-étienne museum of science and industry

Last year marked the fifth consecutive year I’ve visited France, but this time, the mood was markedly different. Terrorist attacks had changed both the topics and the nature of civil discourse, and there was a dramatic increase in physical security around all public events. It was noticeable as soon as I stepped off the plane. In years past, you’d see pairs of uniformed soldiers of various noncombat arms strolling around Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris looking bored, checking out the young women, and trying to feign interest in a largely symbolic duty. In contrast, last summer I saw squads of jocked-up infantry veterans deployed to even second-string airports, where they were actually patrolling and even — horror of horrors — had magazines in their weapons. The rifle they carried was the…

the world’s fastest minigun

2016 YAMAHA TAILGUNNER DILLON AERO M134X INTERCEPTOR 1,000CC INLINE-FOUR WITH A TWIN NITROUS OXIDE SYSTEM SIX-SPEED WWW.TAILGUNNEREXHAUST.COM We would’ve loved to have been a fly on the wall when someone walked into a room and said, “You know what the world needs more of? Motorcycles with miniguns on them!” Did the people blessed with this kind of wisdom previously work as Sonny Barger’s life coach? It certainly seems like every 1-percenter’s wet dream. Were they perhaps former department of corrections employees who were fired over suggesting that electric chairs be replaced with electric bleachers? Perhaps they once pitched an adcampaign slogan to Honda along the lines of, “You meet the nicest people on a motorcycle with a cannon.” Wherever the idea came from, it apparently didn’t fall on deaf ears. What was…
