editor’s letter

It is with great pleasure and honor that I present to you a different kind of firearm magazine–a magazine that encompasses a modern firearm lifestyle and embodies many elements of our industry: guns, gear, technology, shooting sports, training, outdoor life, and home and personal defense. At RECOIL, we are true fans of innovation and aim to showcase the works of art crafted out of hardened steel, aluminum alloy, finished wood and even high-tech polymers. In every issue, leading firearms manufacturers bring to market many of our favorite guns, but it is the small businesses and garage engineers that make some of the best parts to improve the function and form of these firearms. The ingenuity and workmanship that goes into even the simplest components is what excites us as enthusiasts. We…

national navy udt-seal museum

Today’s Navy SEALs (sea, air and land teams) trace their proud lineage back to the early days of World War II where they saw action in North Africa, Normandy and the Pacific as Amphibious Scouts and Raiders. The Scouts and Raiders were formed into underwater demolition teams (UDTs), eventually evolving into combat swimmers known as frogmen and ultimately the SEALs that we know today. And you can now immerse yourself in 70 years of Naval Special Warfare history right where it all began. The Navy UDT-SEAL Museum is located in Fort Pierce, Florida, the birthplace of the Navy’s elite warrior. The museum’s impressive outdoor exhibits include everything from a Vietnam-era Huey helicopter to a current-day Desert Patrol Vehicle. Get a close-up look at the Somali pirates’ hostage lifeboat where SEALs shot…

bugout truck

Whether you’re fleeing a natural disaster or an all-out zombie infestation, a properly setup truck can provide the key to survival.

Although the needs of someone traversing mountainous regions differ from someone driving through flat, open country, the basis of good transport is a four-wheel-drive truck, no matter where you are or are going. Having four wheels drive your vehicle gives you much more control when navigating everything from debris to boulders. Four-wheel drive is more stable in inclement weather, as well. Vehicle size is also a factor. Be sure that the truck is large enough to accommodate everyone and everything you will need. Nothing would be worse…
