BAD EPS EPP EPTSometimes it’s the little things that make a big difference. This is one of those times. 

Drive a gas or diesel powered vehicle, and you’re engine needs motor oil. Most drivers use conventional motor oil, some though use synthetic oil, just because it’s better - for a number of different reasons. If you have an AR-15, you have a take down pin and a pivot pin (the two pins holding the upper receiver to the lower). A number of companies have tried to make better pins, but they generally compromise somewhere with their end result, which is why I’ve never used them. Until now, that is, thanks to excellent design and execution over at Battle Arms Development. 

Is it worth reading a review on two pins for $30? Only one way to know - keep reading. And watch the video.

Sans 13 Watch Smith and Bradley LtdNo, it doesn’t have night vision, a breaching device or a micro folding knife, but the Smith and Bradley Sans 13 tactical watch features more purpose driven design than half of what we might call “tactical” today. Besides, it’s National Tactical Officers Association NOTA tested and recommended. What more could you ask for? Okay, a SHWAT™ review… Its rugged yet simple good looks have spurred comments in some of my sneak peak photos pushed out on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts. There really is more to this watch than good looks and a true law enforcement pedigree. This is an American success story launched on Kickstarter.

Sportsman Shooting CenterIf you want to save money, be a better shooter/hunter, like to have fun in a gun friendly environment or host a corporate event, then you need to check out the Sportsman Shooting Center in Grapevine, Texas.  Housing a live fire cinema range, among some other electronic wizardry, this is a one of a kind facility in the United States.  The next closest place to get this experience is Europe. 

I’ve seen places kind of like this before.  At the video game arcade.  Seriously, this is nothing like what I, or most of you, have ever seen in real life.
