LAG Tactical Holsters for the Recover 1911 Grip and Rail

I recently covered the release of the Recover Tactical Recover Grip and Rail for the 1911. It used to be that when something like this came to the market, you had to sort of sit back and wait to see if holster makers would support it. That process happens much faster now with the proliferation of Kydex benders around the country and the internet to keep everyone in the loop.

LAG Tactical has already stepped up to offer holsters for the Recover Grip and Rail. I have been using one of their holsters for quite a while now and I am very pleased with it. I think it is pretty cool how quickly the gun world moves these days.

Hawkepaks 15 Round Shotshell Strip

You may not be familiar with Hawkepaks but you should be. They offer some great bags and tactical gear at very reasonable prices. I was recently looking for a way to carry shotgun shells on my current gear without having to buy shotgun specific gear and I came across the 15 Round Shotshell Strip from Hawkepaks.


These shotgun shell carriers are designed to hold 15 shells in a double stack that allows them to fit in a standard double M4 magazine pouch. They retain the shells via elastic loops and each carrier has a grommet that can be used to lash it to the magazine pouch for retention.

The 15 Round Shotshell Strip cost just $9.99 and are made in the USA. Check them out at Hawkepaks.

Fury Carry Solutions AR/M4 Universal Rifle Mag Carrier

Kydex AR-15 mag carriers are great but they are often molded to a specific type of magazine which can limit their usefulness to those who use multiple types of magazines. The new AR/M4 Universal Rifle Mag Carrier from Fury Carry Solutions is molded in such a way that it will accept and retain just about any AR-15 magazine. It is also somewhat unique in that it has adjustable retention which is not often seen on these pancake style carriers.

These will be available soon. Check out Fury Carry Solutions.

Oneiros Valley Mean Pad – In Stock

Oneiros Valley understands the Mystery Ranch NICE Frame like no one else. There are 2 main criticisms of the otherwise excellent frame – the short stay height and the flat back contour – and Oneiros Valley has set out to address them both. They addressed the frame height with the LLP (which I previously reviewed) and they have addressed the flat back with the Mean Pad (previously mentioned here).


The Mean Pad is an accessory lumber pad for the NICE Frame that serves a few purposes based on how it is used. For the typical hunter/hiker, it serves to add comfort and support in the lower back area. For the military user, it can serve to fill in the gap under hard armor and allow the hip belt to transfer weight to the hips for effectively.

The level of padding is adjustable. The hiker/hunter may need only a small amount of padding while the military user will likely need all the padding they can get to over come their issues with body armor.

The MEAN Pad is available in two versions. Both can be installed without permanent modifications to your NICE Frame. The Hunter version attached via ladderlocks while the Military version uses side release buckles which are slightly heavier but easier to install and uninstall.

Check out MEAN Pad at Oneiros Valley. It is in stock and ready to ship.
