I don’t deserve a rifle case this good

I am so happy we partnered with Cedar Mill Fine Firearms. They continue to impress. We’re reviewed their incredible Discreet Concealment Guitar Rifle Case (the cool factor is still off the charts) and their Rifle and Pistol Cleaning Kit (it’s still the best deal out there), and now they sent their Slim Double Rifle

Can you buy dependable body armor for under $200?

The experiment was simple: try to find NIJ-compliant level III body armor that won’t break the bank. There are a couple things to keep in mind. First, I’m a 50+year-old civilian. Neither Delta nor Devgru are going to ask me to help take doors anytime soon, so I don’t need the best armor money

How to build a reliable bug-out bag

A train derails near your home releasing a cloud of toxic gas. You have minutes, if not seconds, to grab what you need to survive and flee. An F5 tornado is headed straight for your home like a freight train. Sheltering in place is not an option. You have seconds to decide what to

The cool factor is off the charts

I have to disclose something right from the start – I love this product. I lost all perspective the minute I opened the box. The Discreet Concealment Guitar Rifle Case from Cedar Mill Fine Firearms is rugged, well made and has a price-point that’s more than fair: MSRP is $169.99. A good friend asked

Product Review: LUCID Optics B-8 8×42 Binoculars

Life got a little busier and more interesting for Jason Wilson, founder and CEO of LUCID Optics, earlier this month, when Outdoor Life chose his B-8 8x42 binoculars for their list of the best new hunting binoculars of 2021. A lot of people took notice, especially since some of the magazine’s other picks cost

Defender Coffee’s 1776 And Liberty Roasts

Defender Coffee donates profits to pro-gun groups, including FPC, GOA and SAF. For me, caffeine is a food group, not unlike nicotine, bourbon and rare steak. I’m not into flavored blends — I like coffee flavored coffee — and decaf is the devil. I need a strong, dark roast to get me going each

Surefire Sidekick LED Keychain Flashlight

I’ve been a fan of Surefire products for a long time – decades, in fact. And as an ex-cop, I’m still somewhat addicted to high-quality white lights – too many midnight shifts will do that to you. So, when I saw that Surefire had a 300-lumen flashlight, called the Sidekick, which was about as
