  • "Inception Sledge" Pt 1 by Nutnfancy
    Testing rifles and pistols, the Sledgehammer Drill that I came up with has served TNP well. In "Inception Sledge" we run the shortened version of this course for the first time. Gone is the 75 yard sprint to 200 yard shooting…at least for now! The rest of the course is about the same: engaging 115 yard steel plates x2, 35 yard head shots on the paper bad guy (harder than you might think), and the whole thing kicking off with 3 stages of pistol shooting. But while it’s important, we’re not just about shooting while we do the work out here. We’ll talk about the best buffet around (at least in Utah!), my wore out gloves and tears in the pants, the gear choices, ergonomic factors on the the guns, and why I just can’t seem to connect well at 200 yds with the excellent Rock River PDS carbine. The PFIs kind of slam the Sig P250 .45 ACP but I remain unphazed and will show them how it’s supposed to be run in later parts. I can’t help it if they suck with that trigger! Time flies and Part 1 ends.////////////////////////////Music licensed to TNP from Jason Shaw

  • Desert Talk: More Shooting, Less Running in Sledge?
    PFIDad might be getting a little soft out in the RunNGuns! Well, maybe we all are. Like you’ve seen for years now, running a full day of my tactical carbine and pistol testing course, The Sledgehammer, can be a bit taxing after 8 hours. So the PFIs suggest a short course and we do some thinking aloud on camera. Also along the way we talk about KelTec quality and production issues and the still non-existent beretta ARX160.

    This tutorial is very basic. It covers the basic operation of B6 type chargers. There are many variations to this charger, but they all function exactly the same. This walk through is very basic, and covers enough information to get you using it ASAP. I will do a more in depth Tutorial to show how to program different setting, how to load preprogrammed settings, and many other functions of this Charger type.
  • Cold Steel Voyagers: "Preparedness Blades" by Nutnfancy
    I was not enthusiastic to hear that the lightweight and fast pre-2010 models of Cold Steel Voyagers getting re-designed. They have been favorite blades here in TNP, integrating easily into all preparedness systems. Luckily they’re even better than before and I was happy to be wrong. In this review, I show all three of these newer Voyager models in depth: the XL, L, and Medium
    (plain edged clips, my favorite ones). After hard cutting and some batoning with the Large Voyager, I was not surprised to find still a solid locking knife. The Demko Triad lock is a winner again and it solidly places these Zytel handled folders in the hard use category. The stop pins on these models are large and solid in this lock design, taking the mechanical shock instead of the locking bart. The lockback spring is perfectly balanced and allows for some rather fast deployments, surpising for lockbacks sometimes. The cylindrical thumbstuds are another improvement as well, offering easy and fast access left or right. The full flat ground blades arrive sharp and the clip blade shape has great belly, a good tip, and a preferred stone washed finish. In cardboard cutting the AUS8A steel dulled but retained a usable edge (shown). The handles now feature a higher traction pattern, 6061 heat treated aluminum liners, and deep finger guards. They are are secure in hand and comfortable. Sadly jimping is still lacking in these redesigns but traction is still pretty good. A large lanyard hole makes attaching a 550 cord lanyard easy (medium version lacks it however). The pocket clip is standard Cold Steel: it holds tight, it’s strong, and a left hand version is included. You will have to do some sanding or epoxying under the clip to minimize pocket shredding. Value is tremendous in all the Voyager models, made possible by overseas production. In 2011, the XL clip model sold for $48, an amazing value for a knife with the capabilities of the higher end Cold Steel Large Espada. It is rare you will find blades this well made and this tough at these prices. That alone makes them TNP Hall of Famers. Although sporting the aluminum liners, happily the Voyagers feature reasonable weights for their size and the strength they seem to possess. So while we’ve seem to have lost the ulra-lightweight Voyagers of days past, a stronger, higher grip version takes its place. As last ditch fighters or utility blades, these Voyagers integrate well into EDC, military, LE, and survival systems.///////////////////Nutnfancy Likability Scale: 9.5 out of 10////////////There’s some great knife shops online, here’s one that sells cheap:

Gladstone Boots: £10 off on SWAT ends 30th Nov

imageThe current offer over at Gladstones on the popular SWAT boots is ending on 30th November. There’s not long left to benefit from their £10 reduction:


Random new kit seen online this weekend

Here are just as few items I’ve spotted that have appeared on the market recently.

imageFirst up is the Swiss Eye Mask Pro (by Swiss Eye), a full neoprene mask with integrated goggles. This new mask conforms to various safety specs which is nice to see and whilst nothing that’s flexible can provide 100% protection from BBs it’d be interesting to see this model torture tested by Dr Airsoft.

Having smashed my own favourite duty watch strap in a high collision I was keeping an eye out for a decent replacement. The Watch Band from SORD appears to fit the bill and at 10USD you can’t complain:

Tired of your watches rubber band breaking all the time?
Upgrade your old watch band for a SORD Watch Band. Band is made from US Mil-Spec materials and is non magnetic.


This band will last longer than most others currently on the market and should it blow out in the field, all you need is a needle and thread and you will be back up and running in next to no time.

Band is suitable for the larger dive style watches on the market, but can be trimmed down to suit narrower watch bodies if required. (SORD)

When it comes to bail out bags you can’t do much better than the LA Police Gear BOGB at 19.99USD. I have one in OD that’s served me well for years. There’s a good review over at Shooting Illustrated at the moment of three different bags.


This bag packs a heap in it, the zips last ages and the hook and look parts have just kept on going. The only upgrade I made for my own bag was to replace the side pocket elastic drawstring with more durable 550 paracord. This took a few minutes and kept a well worn bag going for another few years.

If you’re in the market for a not-so-cheap smock that’ll last you for years (and can justify the 300USD price tag) why not give the FirstSpear Squadron Smock a try? There’s a review of the jacket over at Soldier Systems.
