GBRS Group Acquires Patent for HYDRA Mount

Love it or hate it, the GBRS Group HYDRA mount is an optics and LAM riser that certainly has had a polarizing effect on the Gun Community. Coming in at a price of $349, it was inevitable that some knockoffs would be coming down the line to fill the “Just as Good” void. Last week GBRS Group received a US Patent 11,733,004B2 for their HYDRA Mount.

TFB Review: Magpul DAKA V800 GRID Organizer – Initial Impressions

For a long time, I have struggled with a pile of cases and foam that have accumulated over the years.  Something I imagine many gun owners can relate to is the pile of soft and hard cases that will inevitably stack up as you acquire firearms.  This problem is aggravated even more if you have pelican cases.  Not only will you have multiple bulky hard cases but piles of replacement foam cut into specific configurations for certain loadouts. That’s where the Magpul DAKA organizer comes in.

MDT Introduce The Budget ORYX Bipod

Bipods are invaluable assets for a variety of shooting activities. While there are really advanced ones on the market with all the bells and whistles, they oftentimes cost an arm and a leg, and not all applications require a high-end bipod. Now, if you want a bipod that won’t break the bank, there are innumerable offerings on places like Amazon, however, you have to be careful as these oftentimes leave a lot to be desired in terms of design and quality (don’t ask me how I know). One way to ensure a budget bipod won’t disappoint is to make sure it’s made by a reputable company. Well, there is a new option on the market – the MDT Oryx Bipod. With an MSRP of only $99.95, this is the most affordable bipod in the MDT Sporting Goods catalog.

BLK LBL Tavor X95 Handguard with Integrated Bipod

BLK LBL handguards with integrated bipods are really cool upgrade parts allowing you to have a bipod that when stowed completely disappears into the handguard.

TFB Review: Blue Alpha Gear Low Profile EDC Belt

Blue Alpha Gear is a small American business located in Atlanta, GA. They specialize in crafting high-quality products tailored to the needs of the outdoor and shooting community. Their offerings primarily consist of belts and belt accessories at this time. They pride themselves on delivering exceptional value through their offerings but also in providing top-notch customer service. I had the pleasure of meeting a few of the guys from the Blue Alpha team this past January at the SHOT Show. If you were lucky enough to see our bathroom preview video of their new battle belts then you know these guys have a good sense of humor. Nonetheless, they ended up sending me a few of their belts at a discounted price. I have had the Low Profile EDC belt along with another belt of theirs for around seven months and have been testing it as my primary everyday carry belt with my Glock 43X up to the time of this review.

Remington To Collaborate with Jessie & James Handbags

Carrying in a purse is a popular method among prepared women, and is sometimes the only option available. Just ask my wife when she was eight months pregnant. With so many new firearms owners being women, there has been a surge in female-directed options. Jessie & James has been creating handbags that are both stylish and functional, and they are now intertwined with a giant. Remington knows what women want and have announced their new collaboration with Jessie & James Handbags.

THROOM TARGETS Ricochet-Free Silhouette KnockDown Series

While a negligent discharge is at the top of my list of things to avoid on the range, there are other dangers to consider while shooting. Traditional steel targets cause bullets to fragment on impact. Those tiny pieces typically fly into the ground around the target, but every now and then, one will fly back and hit me. Thankfully, I’m smart enough to wear eye protection, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get hurt. Throom Targets gives shooters the option to avoid this issue by creating targets that allow your bullets to pass through them. This is the silhouette version of knockdown targets.

Creedmoor Sports Releases Inverted Know Your Limits (KYL) Target

The sound of ringing steel is one of the most satisfying sounds I’ve ever heard. If you’re a fan of precision shooting, you know that the absence of that distant ring can be crushing, and can change the entire course of a match. The PRS stage that has perhaps crushed the most souls is KYL, or Know Your Limits. In the case of the new Inverted Know Your Limits (KYL) Target from Creedmoor Sports, silence is the preferred result. Pass your round through the targets without hitting the steel to taste victory!

The Strike Industries Stacked Angled Grip Goes Picatinny

The advances in technology for accessories mean nothing without a solid platform on which to mount them. While high-end thin handguards can be plenty strong, some people still prefer the tank-ish quad rails of old. As someone who just ditched mine earlier this year, I get it. If you have a quad and also enjoy the use of an angled foregrip, here’s an option just for you. Strike Industries has made their Strike Stacked Angled Grip with Cable Management System compatible with Picatinny rails.

Case Foam is Dead – Outfitting Your Hard Case with a Soft Case

Case foam for your rifle case?  Yeah, it’s dead.  After spending hundreds of dollars on countless hours cutting and rearranging case foam I finally found an answer to this problem.  Rather than set up a case for foam, I set up my Pelican case for a second soft one inside.  Sort of like Russian nesting dolls but for gun cases.  Let’s dive into how this works, and how you can make this work for you.

TFB Review: The Strike Threaded Barrel and Micro Threaded Compensator

The laws of physics can be so annoying. As much as we’d like to be perfect shooters every time, there are universal rules that we fight against. A great example of this is recoil. Isaac Newton famously wrote, “To every action, there is always opposed an equal reaction.” As the bullet leaves the barrel, it’s our job to tame the reaction. Compensators were designed to help combat this. If you look at the guns used by high-level Open Division shooters, you’ll notice the lack of muzzle flip. This is thanks to solid fundamentals, as well as mechanical advantages like comps. Today, we’ll be looking at the Strike Industries compensation system, which consists of their Strike Threaded Barrel and Strike Micro Threaded Comp.
