It's a neutral-cant rig with a trench-style sight rail that can handle extra-tall suppressor sights, and the front of the holster is cut low enough to accommodate most carry-style red dot sights.

The tunnel-style belt loop offers easy mounting and removability due to a Velcro flap and will fit belts up to 1.75 inches wide.

gurkha-cigar-knife-collection

Gurkha Knife Pack Gift Box - $50

hoppes-gun-medic-cleaner

Hoppe's Gun Medic Cleaner and Lube

Gun Medic is the new bio-based cleaner and lube formula from Hoppe's. The company says the cleaner/lube was originally developed for jet engines and is perfectly suited to the harsh conditions to which bolts and bolt carriers are subjected.

The Gun Medic cleaner blasts powder residue off your gun's internals and then evaporates in 60 seconds. After the cleaner evaporates, a thin film of lube is left on all of the internal parts. The lube itself has a temperature tolerance of -65 to 500 degrees Fahrenheit.

Gun Medic is available as a combination in 10 ounce or four ounce sizes, but the company also has the cleaner and lube available in separate containers if your dad prefers to do things step-by-step.

Shooting 600 Yards with .300 Blackout

Shooting 600 Yards with .300 Blackout

The .300 Blackout cartridge was developed to provide greater effectiveness than a 9mm at short and medium ranges when fired from a short-barreled suppressed firearm. Just because the cartridge wasn't designed to go long doesn't mean Rifles & Optics Editor Tom Beckstrand won't take it there, using a large-format pistol, no less. Armed with SIG Sauer's 9-inch-barreled MCX Virtus Pistol loaded with Black Hills' 125-grain TMK ammunition, Beckstrand attempts to ring steel at 600 yards with help from Hornady's 4DOF ballistic calculator in this segment of “Long Range Tech.”
