Sending rounds down range is a must for anyone looking to improve their accuracy. However, this can turn into a chore, especially at longer distances. Paper targets aren't great for holding up to the elements like rain or strong winds, while other options may have limitations affecting their lifespan. This is where Thor Targets—recognized for delivering top-notch training products—comes in. Their targets are ideal for anyone serious about improving their shooting accuracy, whether for competition or preparedness. We were able to validate the durability of Thor Targets with the myriad of sample ..read more

Affordable .22 AR Built for Nighttime Training
OffGrid | Survival Gear
by Patrick Diedrich
1M ago
Developing night-time shooting capability is expensive. First, there’s the cost of the required equipment: night vision devices, infrared lasers and illuminators, helmets, counterweights, IR strobes, helmet lights, and NV-specific optics mounts. Once you manage to get all of that, there’s the additional, and real cost, of ammo associated with the increased amount of training you’ll have to do in order to develop new skills. We can’t lower the cost of night vision equipment itself but, just like with daytime training, if you can substitute rimfire training to save ammo … why not? That’s what le ..read more

Review: Velocity Systems Jungle Kit

Whether you say “time is a flat circle” or “what’s old is new again,” what we jokingly refer to as tactical fashion trends are indeed a real thing. Just like the Global War On Terror pulled everyone’s attention toward micro chest rigs and CQB, its sunset has redirected the focus of many prepared citizens back toward traditional infantry capabilities. This includes basic patrolling, reconnaissance, and the ability to carry more equipment. On one hand, it’s arguable that the market is simply bored by the endless permutations of tiny chest harnesses and desires other options. But it holds legitim ..read more

Rifle competitions are a great way for shooters of all experience levels to test their mettle in different scenarios and stages. Many think of the Precision Rifle Series — or three-gun — when it comes to competition, but another option is quickly gaining in popularity: precision rimfire. This build is a compilation of parts to make the ultimate competition piece for these rimfire matches. You may say to yourself, Whoa, that’s a lot of money for a precision chassis 22LR!

According to the Small Arms Survey, American civilians owned an estimated 393 million firearms in 2018 — that number has undoubtedly grown considerably in post-COVID years. The vast majority of those firearms will never be used maliciously against another human being, but as with any tool, some will inevitably be misused to harm the innocent. If you consider yourself a prepared individual, are concerned with protecting your family from violence, have an active shooter plan, or are just a firearms enthusiast — and I imagine you’re one or all these things if you’re reading this magazine — you sh ..read more

10/22 Takedown Pack

The concept of a “bug-out bag” is one that can be interpreted a variety of different ways. Some take it as a complete survival kit for living in the woods indefinitely, in which case it’s usually a huge pack crammed with a wide range of sustainment gear and heavy tools. Personally, I like a more limited approach — I don’t see a lot of scenarios where I’d need to live off the land for months without resupply, but I can think of many where I’d want to be out for two or three days with the essentials for safety and comfort. So, that’s the role this pack fulfills. It covers water, food, shelter, f ..read more

Review of the Black Bunker BM8 Foldable Air Rifle
OffGrid | Survival Gear
by Patrick Diedrich
1M ago
Before we dive into the Black Bunker BM8, lets review a little history. Humans have been developing handheld projectile weapons for a very long time, from the spear-throwers of the Paleolithic period to the gunpowder-loaded “hand cannons” which appeared in China around the 10th century. Air-powered projectile weapons are a newer development, but not as new as you might think. They’re actually one of the oldest types of pneumatic technology. You can find the earliest known example of an air rifle, which dates back to the late 1500s, in a museum in Stockholm. In the 1700s, the Lewis and Clark ex ..read more

Rimfire Pocket Pistols
OffGrid | Survival Gear
by Patrick Diedrich
2M ago
Rimfires have always played a crucial role in preparing for disasters. The ammunition and even the guns themselves are lighter than their centerfire counterparts. They are accurate, have virtually no recoil impulse, and excel at pest control or taking small game such as squirrel and even grouse. Most intelligent shooters understand this and own rimfire rifles and target pistols for these reasons. But what about a pocket pistol? Not too long ago, if you asked a self-defense instructor what their favorite rimfire pocket gun might be, you would hear a derisive laugh followed by, “I’d rather have ..read more
