When a bear is charging you, your life literally depends on the decisions you made up to that point. Do you have the right equipment for the job, and are you proficient with what you have chosen? Having encountered many bears while hunting for other game as an Alaska expedition guide, I know this scenario all too well. Fortunately, most encounters involve bears that don’t want to eat you, they just need an attitude adjustment. But for those creatures that mean lethal business, what is the best bear handgun caliber? In the backcountry I have encountered various secondary weapons, from the 500 S ..read more

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.

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

by Patrick Diedrich

About “The Ghost of North Pond” In 1986, Christopher Knight, a 20-year-old home security system installer, vanished into the wilderness of Maine. Raised in a deeply religious and reserved family, Knight's disappearance was not wide ..read more

For most Americans, the security of the southern border is a subject to debate from afar. While the ripple effects of drug smuggling and human trafficking reach throughout our nation, reading news articles and studying statistics doesn’t yield the same perspective as witnessing the problem first hand.  Since his election in 2017, Sheriff Mark Lamb has been serving at the forefront of this complex situation. His jurisdiction — Pinal County, Arizona, which covers a large area between Tucson and Phoenix — is smack dab in the middle of one of America’s most active trafficking corridors, and t ..read more

Affordable .22 AR Built for Nighttime Training

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

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.

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
