- 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.

This time last week I was packing bags, cleaning guns, weighing ammo and practicing my draw and reloads so as not to make a fool of myself in front of Rob Leatham. Tuesday, August 7th, I arrived in Phoenix, AZ with all of my gear and declared bags in good order, got a rental car quickly (no thanks to Hertz, and much thanks to Thrifty) and checked into the hotel with no problems.
After a quick lunch, we headed out to the Rio Salado Sportsman’s Club for the Tuesday Night Steel match where I was to meet Rob. If you haven’t seen Rob shoot on video, you need to… it’s quite impressive. But if you haven’t seen him shoot in person, it’s quite amazing. He finished first in the Production Division (a fairly stock Springfield XD) and third overall (competing against Grand Masters with tricked out guns). My goal was to get all of the BS’ing out of the way on Tuesday so that my lesson the next day wouldn’t be dominated with conversations about who we know, don’t know, like, dislike, and war stories. Mission accomplished.
I should mention at this point that Arizona in August is quite unpleasant. It literally felt like a hairdryer was blowing in my face the whole time I was there. God bless the poor people that live there. I’ll take Alabama’s 90 degrees and 80% humidity any day. I was warned by Rob and everyone else at the range to consume more water than I thought I should. I did. It helped.
I got to the range at 0645 for my 0700 lesson. We quickly exchanged pleasantries and got to work. The first thing he wanted me to do was
If you’re a shooter and don’t know who TGO is, you need to crawl out from under your rock and find out. There is but only one TGO (The Great One) in the shooting industry, and his name is Rob Leatham. When Rob and Kippi announced that he would be doing a few rare private lessons, I jumped at the chance to study under the 6 time World Champion and 25 time National Champion.
Needless to say, I have been increasing the frequency and intensity of my practice sessions in anticipation of this meeting with The Great One. I want to be sharp when I get there, but I also want to be ready to learn and have an open mind.
I will be attending this lesson with my Wilson Combat Tactical Supergrade as my primary firearm, with my customized Springfield TRP as my backup. Both are set up similarly with the exception of a 10-8 flat trigger on the TRP (still in eval). I will be shooting Wilson Combat’s Bill Wilson Signature Match load during the class. I will also be using Wilson Combat ETM magazines. I haven’t landed on the exact holster that I will be using, but most likely it will be a Blade Tech Stingray and matching double mag pouch. This isn’t about me or the gear. It’s about learning how to shoot.
I’ll let you know how it goes…
