TFB Shooters Special – Mother's Day Edition

by Pete

It is that time of year again, when we reflect on all the times we have under appreciated the mothers in our lives. And now you think you can make up for 364 days of neglecting your most cherished relationships with a generic greeting card or some imported flowers in a cheap glass vase? Surely you jest. However, if you are lucky enough to have a woman in your life, be it your mom or the mother of your children, that enjoys some range time just as much as you, we’ve put together a TFB Shooters Special in plenty of time to buy and ship before Mother’s Day on Sunday, May 13th.

If for some reason you don’t have a mother who likes pulling triggers, or if you are a selfish, coldhearted bastard (see what I did there?), maybe you can find something in the list below for yourself. After all, just by being born, you have made Mother’s Day possible.

I will drop my standard announcement here: The items below contain affiliate links to Brownells products that give TFB a small amount of revenue with every purchase. It doesn’t cost you any extra money to participate, but if for some reason you are offended, there are plenty of other things to do with your time. Like, say, call your mother, grandmother, aunt or that nice lady that refers to you as “Sonny” at the Winn Dixie.

Semiautomatic rimfire rifles are some of the most enjoyable firearms to own and shoot, especially when paired with a suppressor. Help mom out by gifting her a new M&P 15-22.

Two-position receiver-mounted safety lever, functioning charging handles, recessed magazine releases and ambidextrous load-assist buttons. Quad-rail handguards along with both upper and lower receivers are built with lightweight, high-strength polymer with integral steel inserts.

Mom’s are always so polite. Help her stay that way with a brake and flash hider combination from SUREFIRE. The next time you two decide to take that mother/son carbine class you won’t have to double up on the hearing protection when you are on the line together.


The revolutionary SureFire WARCOMP-556-1/2-28 flash hider, which fits M4 / M16 weapons and variants with ½-28 muzzle threads, is the world’s most shootable flash hider. Its patent-pending design provides three valuable functions:

It provides over 99% reduction in muzzle flash compared to a plain muzzle, which helps to conceal the shooter’s location and preserve his dark-adapted vision.

It virtually eliminates muzzle rise, which enhances monitoring of target reaction and staying on target for faster follow-up shots.

SUREFIRE WARDEN blast diffuser

The SureFire Warden Blast Diffuser directs the concussive blast of the muzzle forward of the weapon system and the shooter instead of venting to the side as seen with stand-alone muzzle brake devices. This aids in reducing the overpressure and flash felt by others to the immediate left and right of the shooter’s firing position. The Warden securely attaches to any SureFire SOCOM 5.56 or 7.62 muzzle device through the same patented SureFire Fast-Attach® system found on the SureFire SOCOM suppressor series. Additionally the Warden aids in minimizing dust signature when firing from a prone position that would traditionally be seen when firing with a standard flash hider or muzzle brake. Stainless steel body with Cerakote finish.

Having a box of flowers delivered on Mother’s Day is so overplayed. Instead have a box of PMAGs drop shipped right to her door. That’s the gift that keeps on giving the whole year round.

A woman-owned company started by Amy Lynn Geissele in 2012, ALG Defense offers up some awesome triggers at small budget prices.


Trigger/hammer kits feature rugged military-type components carefully prepped to give a smoother trigger pull while maintaining the original geometry for maximum reliability. These are “enhanced standard” triggers, so the armorer continues to work with the configuration he’s accustomed to. The QMS (Quality Mil-Spec) set has the sear contact surface precision-honed to smooth and lighten the pull to around 6½ lbs. The ACT (ALG Combat Trigger) adds nickel-boron coating on the trigger and nickel-Teflon coating on the hammer, disconnnector, and pins to increase surface hardness and reduce friction, with an average pull weight of about 6 lbs.
