Nighthawk 1911 9mm Double Stacks!!!

April 28th 2017 Berryville AR. On the heels of Nighthawk Custom announcing its new collaboration gun in partnership with Agency Arms and Railscales we are pleased to share even more options for our consumers going into the upcoming NRAAM Show. Nighthawk Custom is now offering a double stack configuration as an upgrade option for all government model 9mm guns we make. If you have always loved the slick lines of the 1911 platform but limited capacity held you back, here is your chance to get the best of both worlds. Mark Stone had this to say: “It was imperative that we kept true to our “One Gun, One Gunsmith” philosophy with this release. As with all our guns, each of our double stack pistols is hand fit by a single master gunsmith from start to finish. We continue the use our Fully Machined oversized parts for a hand filed and honed precision build that allows for the tightest tolerances.  We are pleased to say that after over two years of development, we have created a double stack worthy of putting the Nighthawk Custom name on.” Regardless of model, this upgrade will be priced as a $650 option and will be

Introducing the Vanguard GT Holster

CTT Solutions and Gunterest would like to announce their new Vanguard GT holster for the Glock 19. It was designed by Mike Pannone (CTTS) and Mia Wood (Gunterest) for effective, minimalist concealed carry. It combines all the best-known features of safe, secure, and tested minimalist holsters. Originally conceived as a female-friendly concealed carry holster, it is unisex in design. • The trigger guard with Ulti Clip affixes the gun directly to your waistband. • No belt is needed. • No extra girth or bulk is added to your gun’s profile. • Both right and left-handed wingclaw options are available. • The holster is also adaptable for purse carry. A cord or carabiner can be looped through one of the holes to anchor into a purse when drawn. The design arose from Mike and Mia’s beta class for women’s concealed carry. They tested several different holsters, ways to carry, and drawing and shooting with various types of clothing. This first Vanguard GT model was designed for Mia’s primary carry, the Glock 19. Only 100 have been made and are sold ONLY on www.gunterest.net. The cost is $50 + S&H. Please specify right-handed or left-handed upon ordering. The holsters will also be

Materials Used in Hard Armor

*Editor's note: NiJ ratings do not consider 5.56 in classifications. If something is rated level III it will stop .308 but not necessarily 5.56/.223. Currently there are four common options for Level III plates:  5-6 mm steel (AR500/R50c/AR46100) plates: Level III steel plates offer a very thin profile, but are a bit heavier (6.5-7.5 lbs for a 10x12 plate) than some other options. They are very durable and offer inexpensive multi-hit capability against even closely spaced non-AP 7.62 x 39 mm and 7.62 x 51 mm projectiles, as well as for heavier 5.56 mm loads, including 62 gr M855 “green-tip”. Unfortunately, many lightweight (55 gr or less) 5.56 mm loads will defeat steel plates, including the extremely common 55 gr FMJ loads like M193. It is a VERY good idea to wear level IIIa soft armor underneath steel plates. *Spall is a great safety concern. Hard compressed polyethelene (Dyneema/Spectra) plates: These are very lightweight (3-4 lbs for a 10 x 12 plate) multi- hit capable level III plates that will stop closely spaced hits of both the lightweight 5.56 mm ammo that defeats steel, along with the 7.62 mm threats stopped by steel, as well expanding rifle ammunition in many

Dressing for Winter – Gloves

By: Orvar Bäcklin “There’s no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing” -Swedish Proverb This is a follow-up to the cold weather primer I wrote. If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend starting there. The idea here is to try and produce a series of articles detailing my experiences with how to best equip yourself for dealing with extended operations in sub-arctic or just really cold environments. This first piece will go over taking care of the most important tools you have – your hands. A typical glove setup for field ops for me consists of 3-4 different gloves. I'll have a lightly or non-insulated work glove, a thin wool liner, a heavier five finger glove and mittens. Your hands, much like your feet, sweat and freeze fairly simple. I try to eliminate as much glove-less time as I possibly can for that reason. Classic military or outdoors problems are handling metal objects such as your thermos, stove, weapon, radios etc, most requiring some form of dexterity to maneuver. By using a thin liner glove I can take of my heavier gloves while still maintaining a shield between my fingers and whatever metal surface I just have to touch,
