Larry speaks frankly with Lou Diamond Phillips about the HK416, US operators and intelligence in bringing down Osama Bin Laden.
Red State Tactical will be walking the floor of SHOT Show 2014 in search of great new guns and gear for us and our customers. Here are some of the items that are on our MUST SEE list for day one…
While I’m personally not the biggest fan of Remington, Freedom Group or Cerberus, I do appreciate this design of the R51. Set to hit dealer shelves in February, this 20 ounce single stack 9mm will go head to head with the S&W Shield, Springfield XDS and Beretta Nano. One advantage that it will have over the others… price point. MSRP for the R51 will be $389. Notable features include the Pederson Remington 51 type action which has an internal hammer, which technically makes it a single action, no manual thumb safety, grip safety, rated for 7+1 rounds of 9mm +P, and a trigger design that moves straight back due to it’s 1911 style trigger stirrup. Read more about it here.
Smith & Wesson 929
Smith & Wesson has one huge advantage in the revolver market… Jerry Miculek. Jerry, as well as Rob Leatham, would be in my top two handgun shooters in the world. Don’t ask me to pick which one would be my top pick. The model 929 is a revolver from the S&W Performance Center that has Jerry’s influence all over it. The 929 has a 6.5 inch barrel with removable compensator, chamfered titanium cylinder holding 8 rounds, and chrome trigger with stop which goes nicely with the performance tuning done at the factory. While probably not the most practical defensive handgun in the world, the 929 is really aimed at the competitive market. MSRP is $1189 which is clearly in the niche gun price range. I would love to see a model with a 4 inch barrel and Jerry’s signature grips. Read more about it here.
We have to find out if Glock really has lost their damn mind. In the current market, everyone is scrambling to make a pocket 9mm. Glock decides to come out with a pocket .380. After the whole Glock 30S/Glock ID debacle, you’d think they would want to do something to right their wrongs. If you haven’t read about the supposed Glock 42 in .380, then you’ve missed out on a lot of head scratching. It seems to be the gun that nobody asked for. Let’s hope there will be a 9mm and .40S&W version. Read more about it here.
Sig Sauer Sharks with Frickin’ Laser Beams Attached to Their Heads
After the Sig SB-15 announcement, I have had a hard time taking Sig seriously. What have they done lately that is worthwhile?
- Sturdy aluminum or steel construction. The plastic mounts don’t hold up. (Yes, there are plastic ones on the market!)
- A low profile, snag-free design. The swivel mount will be in contact with your body and gear that you are wearing. You don’t want it to become a snag hazard when the gun is hanging from your shoulders.
- Limited rotation. The ability to limit rotation of the sling is machined into the swivel mount and only allows the sling swivel to rotate a small amount. When you put the rifle on and take it off, or when you’re doing shoulder transitions (to shoot around corners), you don’t want the sling to become twisted since this will limit its use. This goes for buttstocks too. Your buttstock should have limited rotation swivel sockets. If it doesn’t, we recommend that you don’t use the QD swivels on the rear of the sling and instead secure the sling to the buttstock using the sling slots.
- A swivel button that’s easy to push with your finger but hard to accidentally press when manipulating the gun or traversing terrain. There are several swivels on the market that have such tiny buttons, they are nearly impossible to release in a timely manner. The Daniel Defense and Gear Sector swivels have the optimum button design.
Both the Gear Sector and Daniel Defense swivels and swivel mounts meet these criteria and were added to our product catalog.
This is a fantastic overview of what needs to happen in the unfortunate event you have to clear your home in a low-light scenario. Obviously, the Surefire gets the limelight, but any high quality light will do. We at NET TAC prefer Surefire, but encourage you to use what you have and can afford. Most importantly, have a plan and practice it.
