We like the Kenai Chest Holster a lot around here (see our review) and this video is the best primer you’ll find on this handy holster.

The Kingfisher Machete from Baryonyx Knife Co.

There are machetes and there are MACHETES. The Kingfisher Machete from Baryonyx Knife Co. is definitely the later. This purpose built machete is a whole lot of steel for the price.

From Baryonyx Knife Co.:

A machete purpose-built for standing strong in uncertain times. Machetes have long seen use across the globe in times of crisis, but until now none have been designed expressly for this purpose. The distal-tapered high carbon steel blade is rigid and unyielding to pressure, and is long enough to offer advantageous reach while remaining short enough to be manageable in cramped quarters. The point of balance is just 3.5″ in front of the American hickory handle, which features a full-length grip below the finger notch to accommodate small or large hands alike. Intended to be as economical as possible, so that you may feasibly afford to outfit an entire group, the Kingfisher is not furnished with a sheath, and is ripe for customization to make it uniquely yours.

The Kingfisher Machete is available for pre-order now BaryonyxKnife.com.

Ruelas537 Omni Sheaths

There is great interest in defensive weapons that are readily available even in far flung locations and that offer some plausible deniability – think Ed Calderon’s (Ed’s Manifesto) fruit knife concept. These concepts are especially interesting to people who travel to locations that may not allow the freedoms to carry more traditional weapons.

Ruelas537 is a maker already known for crafting some sneaky defensive tools. Their newest product, the Omni Sheath, allows the user to carry something like a screwdriver (sharpened or unsharpened) close to their center-line on a static cord. The Omni Sheath protects the wearer from any sharp edges, presents the handle in a way that can be easily grasped and deployed, and releases from the screwdriver (or other object) “automatically” when the end of the static cord is reached.

Contact Ruelas537 directly via Instagram or Facebook for pricing and to order. Check out Delta2AlphaDesign’s Instagram feed for plenty of ideas on how to put these to use.

THYRM PyroVault Lighter Armor

THYRM, maker of clever water-proof containers like the CellVault, has turned their attention to everyone’s favorite lighter. Their new PyroVault is a replacement shell for Zippo (and compatible inserts) that takes the beloved flint and striker butane lighters to the next level.

The polymer PyroVault is o-ring sealed. This keeps water out and butane in. Zippo lighters tend to let all their butane evaporate in about 1-2 weeks but the PyroVault should slow the process of evaporation, making the lighter more likely to be ready when you need it. The cap is spring loaded so it immediately gets out of the way at the push of a button. THYRM also added texture to make the PyroVault easier to strike in nasty conditions and a MOLLE/PALS clip that allows you to keep your lighter handy.

If you like the reliability of the venerable, USA made, flint and striker Zippo insert but hate how it loses fluid, this could be the lighter armor you have been waiting for. Check out the PyroVault at THYRM.com.

Kit Badger KBAT – Well Designed, Easy to Live With Targets for Shooters

There are a lot of human silhouette targets on the market and many of them share the same issues. They are larger than will fit in any reasonable range bag or than can be printed at home and they offer unrealistic target indicators to the shooter. Ivan at Kit Badger has set out to create a target, the Kit Badger Anatomy Target (KBAT), to address these issues.

The Problems

If you shoot anywhere other than an improved range with comfortable parking and easy access, you know the pain of hauling all your gear to your shooting spot. If an item doesn’t fit in a range bag that can mean it has to be carried outside the pack or worse – it requires an extra trip. Large targets that must be rolled are just another item to carry and you will likely never be able to print them yourself.

Even if getting your gear to the range isn’t an issue for you, the issue of unrealistic target indicators applies to most targets. The proportions and the very presence of things like scoring zones can skew the perception of the shooter. Anatomy doesn’t mimic the scoring zones on most targets and real people don’t have scoring zones tattooed on their bodies. The only real markers we have are things like ears, eyes, the nose, and the relative positions of anatomy in relation to the overall shape and orientation of the body.

The Fix

I’ve been fortunate enough to have access to the KBATs for a while now and they do a good job of addressing the issues above. The target is actually a pair of targets that can be used together to create a representation of all of the vital human anatomy or separately as a head and chest target depending on the shooter’s needs.

The KBATs can be printed on standard 8.5 x 11″ paper on your printer at home. They can then be applied to any backer or you can cut your own and trim it to the bold target lines. You probably have room in your range bad to store a whole stack of them.

All of the vital anatomy rendered in very light lines which makes them difficult to target specifically. The outline of the human form is rendered in heavier, bold lines so that the shape of the body and items like ears are really the only target indicators you have to work with. These various underlying anatomical elements are also rendered in realistic proportions so the brain stem area for instance, is rendered in its realistic size and location which is actually a bit lower than they way most of us train to target this area. If you want to color in other indicators like eyes or the nose, you can easily add it with a marker based on the underlying anatomy.

How to Add KBATs to Your Training

The KBATs are currently available as a free download from Kit Badger’s website here: KitBadger.com/KBAT

Soon, they will be available as a printed pad of targets that will offer the shooter even more utility (and a great price compared to many targets on the market). Stay tuned for more details on this.

I strongly suggest you read Kit Badger’s site and view the video so you can get the most out of this free resource. There are a number of ways these can be used and modified to suite your needs.
