RE Factor Tactical makes some very thoughtfully designed training targets but sometimes you just want to have fun at the range (or just give a more fun makeover to your training). They are now offering the Dartboard Target and this one looks like it would be a blast to shoot with buddies or your kids. The target is printed with a full dartboard and instructions for 3 different games you can play.
The Slide, from Elevated Technologies Inc., is an optic mount that has a height adjustment feature that allows you to create the co-witness of your choice. If you want to use lower sights and place your optic closer to the bore, you can do that. If you want to raise your optic out of the way of fixed iron sights, you can do that too.
Elevated Technologies Inc currently supports the Trijicon MRO and optics with the Aimpoint Micro hole pattern. Their modular two piece, dovetailed design seems like it could be made to support a wide variety of optics easily.

Pumpkin spice season is upon us. PHLster and Snake Hound Machine are celebrating with a limited edition Skeleton Holster in Pumpkin Spice Orange – perfect for those cool autumn mornings at Starbucks. The color may be a joke but the holster is real. It has all the quality and features you expect from a PHLster Skeleton Holster.
These will only be available through the end of October. You can laugh or sneer all you want… but we both know you actually kind of want one!
Raven Concealment’s Drop Offset Kit adds both a slight drop and a cant away from your body to your holster. This drop and cant helps ease access to your holster even with gear (plate carrier, chest rig) on your upper body. If you need a solution that is lower in profile than a drop holster, this could be it.
The Drop Offset Kit is designed for use with the RCS Phantom series of holsters but it should work with many holsters on the market with similar eyelet spacing.
Bad Element Co. – the AK mag alchemists – has launched a new website with eStore to make it even easier to put your hands on their creations. You’ll find all kind of cool stuff on the site like Bad Element Co. merchandise, their world famous 1 Rd Kalash Bottle Openers, the next “Mag a Month”, and more. When they have extra shortened 20 round mags, 60 round extendo mags, or other functional AK art creations, you might find those too.

As someone with color blindness (red deficient), I can get by with a typical red dot sight by turning up the brightness but I see other colors much better than red. I tend to see green very well as do most people since it is in the middle of the visible light spectrum. This is why the latest developments out of Holosun are extremely interesting to me.
Holosun has apparently devised a way to create dot sights with green reticles. If that isn’t interesting enough, the runtime should impress anyone. According to Holosun, the new sights don’t just have runtimes similar to current red dot sights, they boast 10 year runtime. That is twice the runtime found on current dot sights. That runtime, if accurate, is going to start approaching the self-discharge rate of some batteries!
Keep an eye on Holosun.com for new details.
Hunting season is right around the corner and GunfightersINC is holding a Fall Sale. You can save 15% off their kydex holster line including the excellent Kenai Chest Holster which we previously reviewed.
