The Crimson Trace MVF-515: A well thought out, useful and high quality AR-15 accessory. Tired of trying to find the right combination of rail mounted grips, flashlight mounts, laser mounts and keeping up with all the wires and switches? If you hunt during the day or night, have night vision or just your naked eye; the MVF-515 may be just what you need. When it comes to night hunting or self-defense, this is one you have to try.
Every now and then I run across somebody doing something extraordinary. Someone serving others without being asked, and at personnel expense in time, energy, money, or all of the above. This is a story of sacrifice. First and foremost, those that shoot and hunt with Black Dagger have given much. They are veterans. Most have been wounded in combat. Many of them have been wounded severely. Dave Winters founded Black Dagger Military Hunt Club (MHC). Dave is himself a 20-year Air Force veteran and is currently a government civilian. Dave’s son-in-law was a wounded in combat and now assists others with PTSD. As you can see, Mr Winters has good reasons to care about those who have paid a high price for freedom.
Here in the south where most wild hogs live, it’s getting warmer. The high today at my home is predicted to be 87 degrees. Soon, hunting feral hogs in daylight will be futile in many places. As tactical hog hunters, we will be forced to operate in darkness. We will become like the shadowy figures that names like SHWAT™ conjure up. We were recently introduced to the Nitehunt line of flashlights. Brandon Moore is the founder of Nighthunt Lights and gave us the run down when we met at the World Predator and Wild Hog Show in Waco, Texas. Now that I have one in hand, I’ll give you the low down on the light and my opinion of whether or not it’s worth the $149.99 price. Read on...

It all began with an email from Nathan Dudney of Dynamic Research Technologies. We had met a few months earlier on a rainy April day at a Starbucks in Memphis. I was on my range tour trip for my website, GirlsGuidetoGuns.com, and he was in town for work. Over coffee that spring day, Nathan introduced me to DRT and its revolutionary new line of ammunition. The email was an invitation to head to West Texas, which just happens to be my home turf, to shoot some wild hogs. The event solidified over the next few weeks and before I had a chance to think about it too much, I committed.
I was a total newbie and, honestly, a little apprehensive about killing anything...
If you’ve been paying any attention to SHWAT™ you know we get to use some amazing gear. It hasn’t always been that way for me though. Prior to founding SHWAT™, I’ve worked some low paying jobs, been through the fun of being laid off, and experienced some of the things that go along with a questionable economy.
With a MSRP of $269.00, you already know it will not be what a Navy SEAL takes with him on a trip into harms way. But it’s affordable for almost everyone. The big question: Is it really useful or just a cheap, gimmicky device that you shouldn’t waste hard earned money on?
Every now and then, you get the opportunity to do something when you least expect it. The circumstances are all wrong, but it’s just too irresistible. Last night was one of those times for me. I was out at relative’s farm north of Dallas trying out a night vision monocular from ATN. I wasn’t there to hunt, but since I know there are hogs in the area, I went prepared. I loaded up an AR-15, grabbed an extra mag just in case and headed out into the field. I did not expect to be shooting hogs with my everyday carry gun.
