VCQB with William Petty – Official Trailer

We spend a lot of time in and around motor vehicles and not just when we are driving. They are never far away in just about any urban, suburban, and even many rural settings. In spite of this, many shooters will never have the opportunity to train in and around vehicles beyond dry fire practice which does not give the shooter a sense of what bullets do when confronted with the many and varied structures and materials found in vehicles.

All of the above highlights the importance of a video like the upcoming VCQB with William Petty. The video is being produced by media gurus at Firelance Media and it will teach you “the positions, ballistics, and methods needed to understand a close quarters engagement around a vehicle.”

Unity Monkey Bar Sale

The Monkey Bar is a drop-in replacement for the small steel rail clamp on the MBUS Pro Front Sight. It serves two purposes: to hold the MBUS Pro to the rail and to provide a mounting interface for any of the Unity Tactical’s Fusion accessories like rails and flashlight rings. Additionally, it will accept Surefire’s M300/M600 Scout Lights without the need for an adapter. It is a very compact and very light weight way to add a light to your carbine that is equipped with an MBUS Pro Front Sight.

LAG Tactical Competition Gear

LAG Tactical has introduced a new line of competition oriented kydex gear. The line includes the CPMC (Competition Pistol Mag Carrier), CRMC (Competition Rifle Mag Carrier), and The Super ‘Nova Holster.


In fitting with their competition roots, the CPMC and CRMC have a ton of adjustment to their mounting angles built in. This allows the user to place them on their belt in any orientation they wish.

The Super ‘Nova Holster was designed in conjunction with noted pro 3 Gunners, James Casanova and Janna Reeves. It is compatible with a number of different belt hardware options and is available in 3 different cuts based on the shooter’s preference.

Check out the new competition line at LAG Tactical.

BA Barrel of the Week – 20″ .223 Wylde DMR Stainless Steel Rifle Length, Premium Series

It is already Thursday so obviously I am a little late in sharing this with you but Ballistic Advantage’s Barrel of the Week is a useful one if you are looking to start a precision AR-15 build. Their 20″ .223 Wylde DMR Stainless Steel Rifle Length Barrel from their Premium Series is on sale for $190. This is a heavy DMR profile barrel that, if it is anything like my 16″ Premium Series Barrel, will be an excellent shooter.

Simply Rugged Leather AR-15 Mag Pouch and Dump Pouch

I have been using Rob Leahy’s, the proprietor of Simply Rugged Holsters, leather goods for a long time. Simply Rugged is my go to place for leather holsters and some hard to find patterns for wheelguns like the Ruger Security Six (which reminds me that I need to get an order in for the Security Six that my grandfather gave me). The first thing I ever brought from him was an elegantly simple, super functional bit cover for a tomahawk, so he has a history of making more than just holsters. One of his latest creations certainly fits the “more than just holsters” category.

simply rugged mag pouch and dump pouch

Simply Rugged will be offering AR-15 Mag Pouches and a Dump Pouch that are crafted from leather. Both pouches are belt mounted. The dump pouch uses softer leather for of the pouch to allow the flexibility necessary to hold about a gallon of gear. The top is stiffened with a band of leather to keep it open and allow the user to easily drop in magazines.

The AR-15 magazine pouch and dump pouch are staples of the tactical nylon industry. I think it is very cool to see classic craftsmanship and materials applied like this. Leather may not work for all environments but if properly cared for, these pouches will probably outlast their first owner.

The magazine carriers are already available from Simply Rugged. The dump pouch will be available soon.


Aero Precision Daily Deal – 15% M4E1 .223 Wylde Complete Upper Receivers

Aero Precision’s Daily Deal is a doozie. They are offering 15% off their M4E1 .223 Wylde Complete Upper Receivers which are already pretty affordable. This could be a great start to a RECCE style build.



E93 CAV-15 Receiver Modifications

Echo Nine Three has added a Services section to their website. There you will find a growing number of the gunsmithing services that they offer including their CAV-15 Lower Receiver modifications. If you have been reading JTT for a long time, you have seen these services mentioned before several years ago and seen them in use on the Sub 6 with a Twist Build. Now, for the first time ever, these services are officially listed on the Echo Nine Three website which is great because I have received several inquiries about the modifications over the years.


The CAV-15 Receiver Modification package includes cutting the stock to the customer’s specified length of pull, fitting a new butt pad, undercutting the trigger guard, and stippling the grip. If you think about what it would cost to the change the stock and grip on a standard lower receiver, this package is quite reasonably priced and I can testify to the fact the work is very well executed. It completely changes the way the GWACS Armory CAV-15 MKII Receivers handle and goes a long way toward reducing the weight of an already lightweight lower.

The CAV-15 MKII tends to get lumped into the same category as all the other poorly executed polymer lowers and that is truly a shame. These lowers are bull strong, lightweight, and handle very well – especially with the E93 Modification Package. You give up some parts standardization and some ability to easily swap/adjust parts but the price is right and it would take you a few life times to wear one out or break it.

Check out the E93 CAV-15 Modification Package.
