American Eagle has launched a new line of ammunition optimized for suppressor use. Yeah, plenty of existing ammo is already subsonic by default, but it’s not necessarily optimized for use in a silencer. First, depending on the caliber, the load and velocity are tweaked to avoid the supersonic barrier with attention to proper function. That’s where […]
“Armed robbery and shooting at North Charleston Waffle House” If you read this headline, as I did this morning, what would you think happened? The robber shot someone? More “gun violence?” Yet another example of the evils of gun ownership? Here in Charleston, that’s how WCBD News 2 reported an attempted armed robbery where a […]
I recently attended a media event hosted by Lancer Systems. They’re partnering with the tactical gurus at Beck Defense on all sorts of nifty projects. One of those is a full-auto, subsonic, suppressed, AR-15. It shoots 75-grain .223 cartridges – reliably. Here’s a quick look at how it runs.
I’ve had my hot little hands on one of the new Sig Sauer .308 silencers for the past few weeks. It’s a great system, especially the science and logic behind the mounts and muzzle devices. Check out this closer look at how it works and, more importantly, how it shoots.

When a new gun comes my way for a look, the very first thing I want to understand is what’s different about it. After all, if there’s nothing different, better, or at least less expensive, then what’s the point? In the case of the Benelli 828U over and under shotgun, I think the “what’s different” […]
Quick, what company does all of the following? Makes composite 2,000-pound bomb fins for the Israeli military. Designs and manufactures harsh environment fiber optic camera solutions to withstand massive heat and pressure. If Brendan Fraser had this gear before his Journey to the Center of the Earth, we all could have been spared the pain of […]
I’m a self-diagnosed holster geek. I even wrote a whole book about holsters for concealed carry. It’s okay, though. I’ve had plenty of desensitization training and am recovering, and can now leave the house for short periods of time without buying a new one. With that said, when I evaluate a new holster, I like […]
