Gatorz Sunglasses | Hand’s On Review of the Delta Series

Gatorz Delta Sunglasses

How many people have heard of Gatorz sunglasses? When our blogging manager told me about them, he said they’re his favorite glasses and he has 3 different styles he wears throughout the year.

I was asking what he thought because I had my Oakley’s with the Prism technology stolen while hiking in the Rockies in September. I was devastated because I knew I couldn’t just buy another pair of $250 glasses right away.

I chose to take my boss’ advice and look into Gatorz to see if they were as impressive as he said they were. Fortunately, he was right on with his recommendation of the Delta Series Gatorz Sunglasses. I’ve worn my Delta Smoke Polarized Gatorz for 2 weeks now and I absolutely love them.

CMMG Unveils the FourSix in 4.6×30mm

CMMG Unveils the FourSix in 4.6×30mm

CMMG announces the first firearm made for the American consumer market chambered in 4.6x30mm. Meet the CMMG FourSix.

Originally designed for the HK MP7 in the 1990s for a low-recoiling NATO Personal Defense Weapon program, the 4.6x30mm is a rimless bottlenecked cartridge that displays some outstanding terminal ballistics at distances out to 150 yards.

With the HK MP7 being the only firearm with this cartridge, you were required to hold a current SOT license to get one. That was then. This is now.


Best Electronic Hearing Protection for Hunting

Crimson Trace & Caldwell gear

For many soldiers or LEOs, it’s not like we had time to stop what we’re doing to put in ear pro before a firefight. If you didn’t have it in for whatever reason, you just deal with it, and unfortunately, it’s cost me a lot of hearing and pain in my ears.

This is important to consider when buying an ear pro for hunting or shooting at the range because not all hearing protection will work for the guns you may be using.

The coolest thing about hearing protection is the clarity in your hearing ability and the advantage that it gives you in the woods. For example, As I was sitting in my tree stand these past couple of days,  I was able to hear a branch break through the dense trees at almost 250 yards with clarity. Even if I didn’t have minor hearing loss, I would have never been able to hear a twig break through the trees at more than 100 yards.

Kimber has released two new models in the company’s popular Rapide series of 1911 pistols to now include the Rapide Dawn and Rapide Scorpius.

These two new pistols feature the same stainless-steel slides with stepped cocking serrations and slide cuts as seen in Kimber’s other Rapide pistols such as the Black Ice. The stainless-steel frame utilizes Kimber’s Stiplex textured front strap, along with G10 grips create an incredible surface area to grip the handgun.

Whereas the Rapide Black Ice comes chambered in 10mm, 45ACP and 9mm, the new Rapide Dawn and Rapide Scorpius are chambered only in 9mm.
