Aimpoint RDS and Pistol Mounting PSA

Aimpoint RDS and Pistol mounting PSA Last year I finally got into the RDS equipped Glock game, using a ALG Defense 6 Second Mount on a Gen 4 Glock 22. About 100 rounds into learning the gun, the dot disappeared. I contacted Aimpoint, and they took care of replacing the pre 2009 well used and abused 4 MOA T-1 with a new 2 MOA T1. In the meantime I used another pre 2009 used and abused 4 MOA T-1 on that gun. It had no issues in the mean time.   A couple months ago, I received a testing model of the Raven Concealment Balor optic mount. I took the used 4 MOA T-1 and put it on the Balor and then mounted it on the Gen 4 Glock 22. About 200 rounds into it, well dot/dial broke. Again, I contacted Aimpoint. Aimpoint rapidly took care of warranty work on this, but more importantly for those interested in a Aimpoint RDS on a Glock, I received the following advice. While there is no proof that the Aimpoint T-1 family is being killed on pistols, there have been more than one optic killed when mounted to a pistol. While researching that,

LMS Defense Night Vision Fundamentals Course with Daniel Bales: AAR

After Action Report Course: LMS Defense Night Vision Fundamentals Course Instructor: Daniel Bales Host facility: LMS Defense Combat Development Center Location: Fernley, Nevada Course length: 1 day *In the interest of complete transparency: I am a part time employee of LMS Defense and have worked for them as an RSO on several occasions. In addition to LMS I work with Dan Bales at my day job as a part time instructor at our agency where Dan serves as the rangemaster. I consider Dan a good friend and will strive to keep my review objective without straying into a subjective view of the instruction quality.* I recently attended 2 separate Night Vision Fundamentals Courses with Dan Bales of LMS Defense. The first was 11/4/16 and the second was 1/27/17, both were 1 day (or more accurately 1 night) classes. This class is billed as an entry level NV course geared towards getting people familiar with their NV equipment and its use.  I have also attended a NV primer course during the annual LMS Defense customer appreciation weekend in June of 2016. (This was a short block of instruction by Dan Bales and an opportunity to checkout some of the provided vendor

Sierra Tac 2 Point Adjustable Sling

I had this sling on a rifle from February 2016 to January 2017  as a T&E at request of the owner/designer. The Sierra Tac sling is similar to function with other 2 point adjustable slings on the market, except it has a adjustment slider that is made just for Sierra Tac. The adjuster is machined from a single billet of aluminum. Its made in America and sewn by Americans. https://www.instagram.com/p/BIu2vpbjcwA/?taken-by=sierratrainingllc To use the sling, you simply attach it at your preferred forward and reward placement (2” behind the gas block of a Carbine length gas system and outside rear stock is my preference). To adjust sling tension, you grasp the slider and move forward or backwards. While using the sling, I found that grabbing the whole slider mechanism makes it easier to loosen the sling. To tighten the sling, I grab the protruding part only. See below pictures for more detail on how. It adjusts very smoothly both in and out, a feature some 2 point slings do not have. The length of the sling is perfect for my use, both in a neck loop or in a over/under shoulder method. I can adjust the sling for wear over a

Magpul and Gibbz Arms Settle Patent Infringement Lawsuit

December 14, 2016 — Magpul Industries Corp. announced today that has settled its patent infringement lawsuit against Gibbens Engineering Group, LLC, a/k/a Gibbz Arms, which was pending in the United States District Court for the Western District of Texas. Magpul’s initial complaint asserted that Gibbz Arms infringed three Magpul utility patents by selling the “Gibbz Arms Modular Attachment (GAMA) System.” Magpul’s amended complaint reasserted those utility patents and sought a preemptive declaration that Magpul’s M-LOK® system did not infringe any Gibbz Arms patents. Gibbz Arms’ answer to Magpul’s amended complaint asserted as a defense that the GAMA System did not infringe Magpul’s patents. The companies settled their dispute on confidential and mutually agreeable terms. Under the terms of the settlement, Gibbz Arms agreed to assign patent rights related to the dispute to Magpul. Adopters and licensees of Magpul’s M-LOK® system continue to have complete freedom to operate without interference, and M-LOK adoption will continue to be available via free license to interested parties. About Magpul Founded in 1999, Magpul was launched with the intent of developing innovative devices to aid in the manipulation of rifle magazines while reloading under stress. The company’s name comes from this original product called the

Main Gun Coffee Company: First Sergeant Blend

Been sampling the Main Gun Coffee Company First Sergeant blend. I like it. It's a darker roast than the Belt Fed (I'd call it a medium roast, it's not a dark roast, but darker than the Belt Fed), with a light body, and mild cacao and red wine notes. Being a darker roast, you taste the fire more than the lighter roast, which gives it a hint of smokiness on the back end. Those are really just hints under the excellent coffee taste, which is pretty awesome. Many darker roast coffees can be a little too much for some folks, as they're either too dark (where you taste more of the roast, and it covers the natural flavors of the coffee), or they're heavy bodied which some folks find objectionable. The First Sergeant blend strikes a nice balance, just dark enough of a roast, with a light enough body to be a daily drinker. I tend to like my medium/darker roasted coffees with a little heavier body. If there was one thing I'd change about the blend, that would be it. Not a negative on the coffee, just a personal preference. That being said, the First Sergeant blend is the

SWAT Team Leader Course & Vetting Entities…

I am teaching another Team Leader course in a few weeks. During the course of a year and with different topics being taught, I invariably get asked whether my course is “certified” by a specific entity. One of the reasons I started a training company was because I felt like a lot of courses that I attended were liability driven, or lacked depth or left me wanting more from an instructor who could not relate what he was teaching to a specific example or callout. Whether or not a course is “certified”, does not mean it is good or bad. But the question is odd, since Tap-Rack Tactical, LLC is the only entity responsible for its course content. How can another entity certify it? Even POST certification doesn’t mean much since the person reviewing the course material may or may not know anything about the topic. Did they certify spelling and grammar on the PowerPoint, or the actual material? In the case of my team leader course, did a team leader with equal or greater experience than me review it? And even if they did, they haven’t sat through the class. The PowerPoint is designed to keep me on track

Mag-Pods For Gen 2 Pmags

I had been seeing these for some time and thought they were interesting. I also wondered and worried about whether they would stay on the magazines with rough use and potentially adding a snag hazard when conducting building clears. Shane Keng from Mag-Pod was kind enough to send me some to check out. I warned him in advance that if they sucked ass I would tell people that they were garbage. He confidently told me to do my duty, always a good sign. I got six of them in April and have been using them pretty hard ever since. After six months they have been used in 130 hours of live fire training and another 150 hours of Force on Force training. I did not carry them on missions during the eval period, because real life is not the place to test gear. The training included the obligatory drops on concrete and other surfaces with full, partial and empty magazines. It also included unintentional smashes against a variety of hard things, door frames, Bearcats, walls, tables and furniture. Routine kinda smashing, not intentional smashing for the sake of destructive testing. Zero issues to report on the durability side, they stayed
