In the wake of California State Sen. Kevin de Leon’s (D-Los Angeles) ignorant comments regarding home built firearms, Aero Precision released what might be the funniest AR-15 lower receiver ever created. Their Ghost Gun lower, with its hilarious custom selector markings and roll mark, sold out quickly. That lower has now been brought back for a limited time and guess what… It’s still funny.

Echo Nine Three’s SpecMod stock set is pretty slick. It blends traditional looks with features that the “modern” shooter expects. They recently produced a graphic that notes all the components and features in an easy to digest way.

Snake Eater Tactical makes some excellent belts. I have used one of their Cobra Rigger’s Belts for years and I am currently trying one of their SET War Belts. Both have been excellent products.
They recently updated the design of their belts to remove the hook and loop material that secures the belt tail. Their reasoning behind this move is that the hook and loop is the weakest link in a quality belt. Its tendency to wear out is the only thing that prevents the belt from lasting forever. I have owned many webbing gun belts over the years and in my experience they are correct.
They are now using a keeper that is sewn into the belt to secure the tail. The keeper can not be lost because it is sewn in between the layers of the belt. It is secured in such a way that it can move along the length of the belt a short distance in order to secure varying lengths of belt tail.
VEIL Solutions has developed a pointed strut that bolts on to their standard Apex and Ghost holsters without modification to convert the holster to pocket carry configuration. The strut serves to ensure that the handgun and holster stay upright in the pocket and to catch the pocket so the holster breaks free of the handgun during your draw stroke.
The real limiting factor of a setup like this is the size of your pockets. It seems to be especially well suited to VEIL Solutions’ very compact VS Ghost Holster for the Glock 42.
