Baffling E-Mail just received

Someone from my old unit sent me this.  Whatever can it mean?  With today's Armament Advances, suppressor failures among SOF end users SHOULD certainly be as uncommon as unicorns or Gen I NVGs.  I am baffled, and am going on strike.  I bet I could go to 36 different ranges and not see one.  Maybe at number 37, but I haven't made it that far in a day yet.

Any further lies will result in a Blackout.  I don't mean to be a TiRant but any more of this crap will result in opening up SCARs.

Furthermore, you guys should at least let me know which company you're talking about in the interest of responsible journalism.  Dicks.

Blueforce Gear Ten-Speed design

I am a huge fan of the people and products at Blueforce Gear.  Ashley and Stephen have been extremely kind to me over the years.  Their products continue to be innovative and functional in everything they do.

I was fortunate enough to be an early adopter of the Ten Speed 3-mag shingle and later the Ten Speed chest rig as well as some other BFG products that I will review in the future.  They are great products that really fill a niche for lightweight, ultra low profile load carriage with adequate retention.  More on those later.  I liked these products so much that Duke and I came up with a great logo specific to the Ten Speed line.  See the goods at!

Generation 4 Glock 22 initial impressions

Recently I picked up a new Glock 22.  I already had about a dozen various Glocks to include a 22 and 35.  I grabbed this new variant to see if Glock had finally taken some market cues and improved their product.  I have only fired a small amount of rounds at this time but subjectively, it shoots softer.  I attribute this to the stiffer dual-spring recoil assembly.  It was comfortable and accurate.  The trigger was standard-issue Glock but I worked some magic to get it to about 3 pounds and smooth.  Sights are Dawson PIs with a black rear and fiber optic front.

There are a few small changes to the pistol that don't warrant complete detail.  The frame rails are slightly changed and the trigger bar has a rounded protrusion, presumably to help lift the firing pin block more easily.  The other changes are more functionally apparent and will be covered a little more in-depth.  Of note, the slides are not interchangeable between the Gen 3 and 4 pistols.

1.  The grip and mag release.  The grip is not a sharp as the RTF frame.  It will not tear up clothing and can be carried concealed.  It seems to be more durable as well where the RTF grip pattern would lose some of it's bite after use.  The mag release is flush to the frame and extends back towards the rear.  It is about 4x the size in surface area and much easier to depress than even an extended Gen 1-3 release.  I think people may find this the best upgrade of the package.  It is reversible for wrong-handed shooters as well.

2.  The guide rod.  The guide rod uses a telescoping dual spring design similar to the subcompact Glocks.  It requires a larger hols in the front of the slide and a new cut on the locking block for the larger rear flange.  It is noticeably stiffer and shoots softer as well.  I presume this to be Glock's answer to reports of stoppages with the lights mounted.  I can't say, as I never had this happen with my .40 Gen 3 guns.

3.  The grips are small.  Equate the pistol with no backstrap to the "SF" version of the G21.  It is shorter from front to rear.  To customize the fit, a backstrap clips over the rear and is retained by a longer trigger group pin.  The medium piece is roughly the same size as the Gen 3 Glock frame, and the large is roughly the size of the G21SF, although more narrow from side to side.  It's a good system, and I think people will like it.  I also believe most folks will just use the smallest size and leave the backstraps off.

This shot shows the smaller rear cavity of the Gen 4 gun, and the relative thickness of the two additional backstraps.

4.  The magazines are nearly the same, and previous Glock mags fit with one caveat.  There are cuts for the ambi safety as well as the reversible safety from the Gen 4 guns present on the Gen 4 mags.  This is required for the safety when on the right side  for lefty shooters.  I presume these guns come with 3 mags to make sure the possible left handed shooter has a duty loadout.  For righties, use whatever G22 mags you have.   The rear of the feed lips is slightly different but does not appear to affect function.  See below.

Now that the first shirts are out from the printer, #2 is ready for it's big debut.

Everyone has seen the signs: "Caution-Wet Floor". For those of us with different workplace hazards, check this out.
Well, what if your workplace performs activities that aren't as mundane as the average cereal factory? Don't we all deserve to have a safe work environment? I think so. This one is for you guys.

The Stark Equipment grip

I have tried almost every grip for the AR variant known to man. I like the Tangodown Battlegrip and have used it for a long time, but my hands are just too big and I cannot get proper finger placement all of the time. The answer to this was the Sierra Precision SPR grip. That was my front runner for a long time, and still is on my work gun. The SPR grip has a built up shelf for the thumb and is very thick on the right, which keeps you from getting too much finger on the trigger. Wrong-handed shooters are SOL, as the SPR grip is built ergonomically for the right hand.

Recently, I picked up a Stark Equipment SE-1 grip from Shooter's outside of Bragg. I like the fact that it keeps the trigger finger from riding too high on the trigger and contacting the receiver. The Stark grip keeps your finger where it needs to be, on the trigger and only the trigger. The Stark grip looks kind of odd, but is remarkably comfortable and extremely efficient at promoting proper grip and finger placement on the trigger. Coupled with a Geissele SSA it's like shooting a different gun.

The Stark Grip is available in FDE, Black, OD, and Desert Digi (similar to desert MARPAT and AOR1). A "fancy sauce" version, the SE-2, has a built-in QD flush cup on the rear for sling mounting. I like this option as it keeps the sling from interfering with your cheek weld as some receiver end plates can do.

Check them out at, and buy them from Bravo Co. USA or Brownells.

Pics to follow shortly.
