Running the Irons.

Iron sights have been part of shooting since the very least April 19th 1775. Aiming was a major part of our tactics that helped defeat the British unaimed volley fire. This being said, it should come as no surprise that we have learned, used, and lost uses for iron sights in all environments from jungles, deserts and even the frozen landscapes of Siberia. I am going to talk about a few of those techniques here. First anyone ever wonder why there are 2 apertures on the M16/AR15 platform? Most people have looked and wondered but never cared. Some wondered then tried switching between the two and found no gain from it. There is a reason for it but first we need to talk about sight alignment. Photo courtesy of FMJ Armory, LaGrange, GA TC 3-22.9 states “sight alignment is the relationship between the aiming device and the firer’s eye. To achieve proper and effective aim, the focus of the firer’s eye needs to be on the front sight post or reticle. The Soldier must maintain sight alignment throughout the aiming process.” It goes on to say for iron sights it is the “the relationship between the

Speed Costs Money……

Speed costs money, how fast do ya wanna go  With the election upon us, it seems as if everyone now wants to buy, buy, buy firearms and gear “just in case.”  Which is cool, but not the way I would go. A firearm is a tool. That’s all. Much like a wrench or a ratchet. As such, quality is more important than quantity. There is not a pro team in any racing series that uses the 101-piece toolset from your local box store. There is a reason for that.  Quality  I am a self-declared tool snob and have been for over 25 years. During my relatively short foray into auto mechanics I used tools exclusively from a dude with a big white truck who came to the shop. No, I didn’t have money for pro tools. I didn’t even have the skills to “need” pro tools let alone the pay to go with them. That did not stop me. I didn’t have as many tools as the professional mechanics I was working with and my box never got above hobby grade before I left for other things. When it came time for war, I applied the same philosophy to my

Weapon System Visual Signature Reduction aka “spray painting your rifle”

“(Camouflage) is the use of materials and techniques to hide, blend, disguise, decoy, or disrupt the appearance of military targets and/or their backgrounds” - Army ATTP 3-34.39, Camouflage, Concealment, and Decoys “Target indicators: anything a Soldier does or fails to do that could result in detection.” - Army FM 3-22.10, Sniper Training and Operations I’ll preface this article by stating that this is written with a duty/work gun in mind, for the servicemember or LEO that relies on the weapon they carry to bring them back home not only alive, but victorious over their enemy. As such, aesthetics are not only a non factor but something that must be purged from our collective brains. Function is the key here - there are plenty of places to get your rifle cerakoted with flaming skulls and other bullshit if that fits your fancy. Equally important is understanding that a sweet paint job does not mean your weapon is invisible - it is merely a base for a true system of camouflage that involves other techniques that are the topic for another day. Not fooling anybody Target indicators/improper camouflage: the down and dirty. Of the five types of target indicators, our focus here

Overwatch Precision TAC Flat Face Trigger Review

  Before we begin, let’s set some baselines to see if this review will be relevant to you. This was not a scientific, standards based, control group study. It is my opinion based on the things that are important to me. I am a nobody but I train a lot. Here is my story : Lifelong martial artist (TKD, Muay Thai, BJJ), no LEO or military experience (save being an Air Force brat), NRA pistol instructor (who isn’t?). I have received previous training from George Wehby of I4Tactical, Matt Jacques of Victory First, John Murphy of FPF Training, Chris Sizelove of 1st Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment, Aaron Brumley of Solo Defense, Steve Fisher of Sentinel Concepts, Greg Ellifritz of Active Response Training, Pat Goodale and Wayne Fisher of PFT Training, and private training with Al DeLeon of the State Dept’s MSD unit. I shoot anywhere from 200 to 400 rounds a week. I try to compete three times a month. When not traveling for work I train BJJ 2 to 3 times a week.In addition, I am also a contributor on PrimaryandSecondary.com and a moderator on three of P&S’s Facebook groups. I have learned, broke bread, shared drink, asked questions

SOLGW: The Final Thoughts Part 2

So here is where I'm going to break down the rounds that I fired through the gun during the review. One important thing to note is, I fired these rounds in no particular order or one brand at a time and the reason why is, I didn’t want one kind of ammo to be a rockstar on a clean gun, but not so much in a dirty gun and I failed to pick that up….with one prime example being the Steel cased Tula Ammo. 1500 rounds = PMC 55 Grain Practice Ammo 1500 rounds = M855 Ammo 1000 rounds = XM193 500 rounds = Steel Cased Tul Ammo 700 rounds = Remington UMC 55 Grain Practice Ammo 75 Rounds = Speer Gold Dot 64 grain 50-ish rounds = Horandy TAP 60 grain (After the barrel was hot) So now that you know what was shot through the gun, lets cover the conditions. Right before its scheduled cleaning at the half way point, I ran the rifle through Pat Mac’s class that was at my range and it was brutal. There were points on Saturday that it was damn near raining sideways and I don’t think the rifle was ever dry

SOLGW: The Final Thoughts Part 1

So……about 6 months ago P&S was contacted by Michael Mihalski, who owns Sons of Liberty Gun Works, about reviewing one of his turnkey rifles, cause unlike most manufacturers, he wanted to prove his product was worthy and could be trusted. Matt Landfair turned the project over to me and I linked up with Michael about the rifle. Michael stated he wanted to send me one of his rifles along with 5k rounds to do with it what I pleased, just wanting unbiased feedback and a review done. I was like yea cool, I can get down with that. Now mind you, I consider myself pretty well connected to the industry, but this the first time I've heard of these dudes. So I was like ehhh, another group dudes throwing parts together and making a shootin stick. In the interest of honesty, I didn’t have high hopes. I intentionally didn’t google them so I didn’t see reviews and expect anything predetermined about the rifle. Now after 1k rounds, I started seeing their name pop up and snooped around the internet to see generally good reviews. The sources of the review are less important than the fact that I didn’t really find any

A Pro-gun Primer on Anti-gun Debate, Part 3 of 3

By Aaron Moyer Welcome back to our three-part series on anti-gun debate, and thanks for sticking with me so far! In Part 1, we discussed the goals of this series and the misnomers of “gun violence” and “assault weapons.” In Part 2, we discussed gun and magazine bans and what people hoped to achieve with them. In Part 3, we’ll wrap up the series with concealed carry, other gun regulations that aren’t widespread bans, and the ultimate goal of gun control.   Argument 9: “Concealed carry is dangerous and leads to more crime.” Not true. Like, at all. Just as the US has seen dramatic decreases in violent crime and murder as gun ownership increased and the federal assault weapons ban passed, so too has our country seen that same decrease as concealed carry rights expanded. I won’t claim that the mass expansion of concealed carry is what led to the decrease, but I will claim that concealed carry definitely doesn’t lead to an increase in crime. In fact, there’s evidence *suggesting* that concealed carriers are safer than police, and definitely safer than the general American population. While data is sparse, what we do have (from Texas, one of the

A Pro-gun Primer on Anti-gun Debate, Part 2 of 3

By Aaron Moyer And we’re back with Part 2 of our three-part series on anti-gun debate. In Part 1 , we discussed the goals of this series and the misnomers of “gun violence” and “assault weapons.” For Part 2, we’ll be focusing on gun and magazine bans, both abroad and at home, and their effectiveness, both actual and perceived. Let’s dive right in with every anti-gunner’s favorite gun control case studies: the UK and Australia! Argument 4: “Gun bans were successful in the UK and Australia.” I take issue with the narrative that Australia’s gun-ban was a success. Perhaps at eliminating or stymying civilian gun ownership, but not at reducing violence in Australian society. If you look at their murder rate, the gun ban didn’t have an effect for many years and the rate took a while to drop (over 1.7 homicides per 100k people from before the gun ban in 1995 to after in 2003). Even then, the year-over-year drop in the murder rate after 2003 was almost exactly the same as it was before the gun ban, mirroring the US’s year-over-year drop even as gun laws were loosened here at the same time. It really didn’t do anything that

A Pro-gun Primer on Anti-gun Debate, Part 1 of 3

By Aaron Moyer As a politically-involved civilian firearms owner, I’ve been in many debates about the role of guns in American society. Every time this happens, I find myself looking for a comprehensive, objective article I can give to my ideological opponents that addresses all of their concerns in one fell swoop -- a one-stop, go-to document that makes the simple and effective case for firearms ownership in 20 minutes or less. To date, I haven’t found it. This time around, rather than getting into a bunch of debates and wishing such an article existed, I decided to make it myself: a single-source, tit-for-tat, pro-gun primer on anti-gun debate complete with citations, statistics, and links.   I’ll keep the numbers simple, as they speak for themselves and don’t need to be distorted or manipulated to fit a narrative. Some sources may be linked multiple times, but I’ll corroborate almost everything from multiple outlets. I’m going to target 15 of the most popular anti-gun arguments, because the goal is to give you concise and effective responses if you’re pro-gun, or better explain our perspective to you if you’re anti-gun. As this is a 20-minute primer, it’s not going to be the
