C-Clamp: Using a Vertical Surface for Stability

In a dynamic scenario, a smart gunner will use every advantage they can get. In this Trigger Time TV clip, Frank Proctor of the Way of the Gun shows us the “c-clamp.” This technique allows you to use a vertical surface to not only provide cover, but mitigate recoil and add extra support. When you’re reaching out to 100, 200, or 300 yards and beyond, any additional stability is quite helpful on getting that bullet to its target. Want to see how he does it?

In the Crosshairs: Leupold FX-II 4x28mm Handgun Scope

During my review of the EXTAR AR-15 format pistol, I realized that it had accuracy potential far more than what people give the AR-15-type pistol credit for. It deserved a fitting optic that could take advantage of the accuracy without diminishing the close-range capabilities of the pistol. I chose the Leupold FX-II 4x28mm scope. This scope has enough magnification to deliver on the potential of the AR-15 pistol format with plenty of eye relief for arm’s length aiming. Continue reading

Free Holsters for New and Current REX Zero 1 Owners

FIME Group, the Las Vegas-based firearms importer responsible for bringing MOLOT/Vepr firearms and the Arex REX Zero 1 handgun to the United States, has announced a new promotion giving away free holsters to all REX handgun owners. The 9mm REX Zero 1 handgun is very similar to the Sig Sauer P226, but features operational differences that users prefer. It also holds a $649.99 MSRP, which is substantially less than the over $1,000 MSRP for most Sig Sauer P226 models. As with most firearms from smaller importers, there has been a lack of after-market gear and parts, and the gun is different from the P226 enough that parts and gear are not interchangeable. Spare mags and grips for the Rex Zero 1 are somewhat easy to come by, but holsters have been missing from the market. Now, FIME Group is offering a free holster to all Rex Zero 1 owners.

To Thump or Not to Thump, That is the Question: M203 Grenade Launcher

The U.S. Army formally adopted the M79 Grenade Launcher in 1960 as a result of Project Niblick. The Thumper, Bloop Tube, or Blooper, as GIs came to call it, was a simple variation on the basic break open shotgun theme. The innovative low-recoil system that threw the M79’s 40mm grenades much farther than could be done with a pitching arm alone was itself an evolutionary development of the WWII-era German Hoch-und-Niederdruck System. This impressive amalgam of Teutonic verbiage translates roughly into High-Low Pressure System. Continue reading

FN SC1 Over/Under Competition Shotgun

My quest for a quality and capable skeet, trap, and sporting clays shotgun led me to the FN SC1. It was not a lengthy thought process. To me, the SC1 addresses all the have-to-haves serious shooters have noted while staying far clear of the typical five-digit $10,000+ price range. The FN SC1 will continue to perform far above my skill level for some time. It delivers everything the pro shooter could ask for in a sporting clays shotgun just shy of custom stocks and custom height vent ribs. Continue reading
