New Viridian E Series Green Laser Sights for Taurus G Series Pistols

In a recent Q&A conducted by our beloved TFBTV hosts, Hop mentioned that he actually makes use of a pistol-mounted aiming laser for his home defense pistol. The reasoning behind this is that the laser would offer him both a faster and more accurate target acquisition in a home defense situation if he could not get to his glasses in time. Viridian Weapon Tech has a wide array of pistol-mounted laser aiming devices and they have now released their popular E Series Green Laser for the growing library of G Series pistols from Taurus.

Concealed Carry Corner: Top Maintenance Items For Concealed Carry

When the weather starts to finally become warm in the great north, it’s always time to start thinking about your carry options. Here in Michigan, you can typically carry a larger-sized pistol roughly 8-10 months out of the year, but on a rare occasion, it does actually get warm here. With the warm weather arriving, it means fewer layers and ultimately a smaller pistol to carry for most people. The change in weather is typically a great time of year to do some regularly scheduled maintenance on your firearm to make sure it’s in tip-top shape. You may still have your winter dad bod, but at least your gun and gear will be squared away. Let’s take a closer look at some of the top maintenance items for concealed carry.

TFB Review: The Peak 44 Blacktooth Carbon Fiber Stock

Back in September, I wrote about the new Backcountry 2.0 rifle from Weatherby at their unveiling event. I was impressed with the overall decrease in felt recoil from a magnum caliber we shot at the event. One of the first bolt actions I bought was a Mark V Ultralite in .300 Weatherby Magnum. It sat in my gun safe for years since it was such a sharp recoiling rifle that hit like a freight train. This fall, I sent my Weatherby Mark V in to be threaded for a muzzle brake as well as getting a Peak 44 Blacktooth stock installed. I’ve had the rifle for roughly 3 months and took it on a Texas Axis Deer hunt. Let’s take a closer look at the Peak 44 Blacktooth Stock.
