Ballistic Advantage has a new website that makes it easier to navigate their selection of barrels. They have a barrel for just about every budget and application.
While most AR-15 pistol grips are molded from polymer, Executive Ordnance went a different direction. Theirs is machined from 7075 aluminum billet, hard anodized, and fitted with interchangeable G-10 panels. This is certainly not something everyone needs but they are really unique and they look great.
G-10 is a great material for this type of application. It is extremely durable, relatively lightweight, impervious to most solvents, available in a ton of colors, and easily machined for texture. Each grip has three G-10 panels – two sides and a front strap. The panels bolt to the aluminum chassis and are interchangeable so that the texture and colors can be changed to suit the user.
Push knives (punch blades) are one of the easiest to carry styles of defense fixed blades. They are also fairly intuitive to use. However, many of the available push knives on the market just aren’t that great. Joe Watson Knives is developing a push knife that looks to have a lot going for it.
The handle is hand filling with a broad backstrap to which helps prevent twisting and spreads the force of a blow out over more of the palm. The post area that connects the blade to the handle is well rounded to prevent injury. The random textured G10 scales should also go a long way toward preventing twisting.
The blade is very reminiscent of Joe’s Archangel design. It has a strong point that is well suited to the intended point driven use of this knife but also has a useable edge. The blade is not centered on the handle like many push knives. Instead, Joe has offset it so it falls naturally between the index and middle finger. It is also set at a slight angle to the handle in order to allow a much natural fist position and to more effectively lock the wrist.
It is obvious that a lot of time and thought went into this knife. It is not available to order yet but will hopefully be added to Joe’s line up of custom knives soon.
Fight and Flight Tactical is trying to bring something new to the patch panel. Their panel features a large loop Velcro surface, bound edges, and grommets for hanging. All of that is pretty standard. The unique feature is the addition of PALS webbing along the bottom edge of the panel so the user can attach various pouches.
The PALS webbing addition would be pretty handy if you keep your panels above your desk like I do. Pouches could be used to hold small items I need at the desk, the webbing could be used to hang commonly used items like sunglasses, or who knows what else. The uses for PALS webbing are nearly endless.

Spencer at SAR Global Tool is building a 14″ Inglorious Bastard, one of the sveltest and most wicked knives he makes, to benefit Run Ranger Run and GalliantFew. This is a very cool project and Spencer is chronicling the entire build on his blog. You can keep yourself up to date at the SAR Global Tool Blog.
The knives will be finished any day now. Don’t miss it.
I have a pile of YouTube channels that I follow, most of which are firearm related. Many of the channels that I follow have begun to move to different platforms for sharing their content for a number of reasons. One such platform is FULL30.
FULL30 is a video sharing site that is entirely devoted to the shooting community. It has a ton of content from creators that you already know like Vickers Tactical, Military Arms Channel, Mrgunsngear, TwangNBang, and more. I have found the user interface to be very easy to use and the videos stream without issue.
If you haven’t checked out FULL30 yet, you should.
