If you are shooting the Tarheel 3-gun challenge this weekend, Triangle Tactical would like to hear from you! This is the first big name match of its kind here in our backyard, and I’d like to solicit some feedback from those who are shooting the match. I’ll be down at the match on Saturday, so if you see us walking around with the Triangle Tactical shirts on, come say hello! Looking for some audio interviews with shooters, pictures, video, etc.
Just wants to take a moment and say thanks to all who have served our great country. Without men willing to lay down their lives for freedom we would be the country we are today. Remember those who have died for our great nation from the men who fought at Lexington and Concord, to the men currently serving around the world.
I would like to extend a heart felt thank-you to all of you.
When I was in High School and my first couple years of college I had the opportunity to work at Maple Hill Cemetery in Cadillac, MI on Memorial Day for a couple years, helping to place American flags at the headstones of veterans, and showing family members where their loved ones were laid to rest.
Seeing the respect paid to the vets, some who had passed more than 100 years earlier was quite the [...]
Single, double, triple, bungee, adjustable, cloth, webbing, etc. With so many different slings on the market it can be difficult to choose what the best style is for your rifle. Slings serve several purposes on a rifle, the least of which is carrying it. A good sling should be easily adjustable, and help the shooter steady the rifle when firing.
Let start with the single point sling: The single point sling generally attaches at the rear of the lower receiver on an AR pattern rifle, with only one attachment point, hence the “single point” name. There are many different brands of single point slings, but generally they all work the same. A single point sling is good for holding the rifle onto your person while standing still, but when walking and running with the slung rifle, you will find that the rifle will tend to migrate to your center, and [...]
Hey everybody on my email list, if you received two emails from me last night, I apologize. I switched to a new mail client, and apparently did not suppress emails with the old mail client. It’s fixed now.
Daniel Defense has a reputation for making great products, and that reputation is not lost on their small parts. I picked up one of their rail mounted fixed front sights a few months back, and I must say, the quality is phenomenal.
The front sight mounted up to my 13″ Troy TRX Extreme easily, and once the screw is locked down, it holds zero without issue.
There are a couple of reasons that I purchased this sight over some others. The first being the light weight. I try not to add a munching of heavy items at the end of my rail in order to keep the rifle nimble and lightweight.
The second reason, is that the mounting screw is recessed into the side of the sight tower, instead of having a large thumb screw sticking out of the side of the sight like the LMT fixed front sight. The [...]
Hey guys, Not really something I usually do here, but its my website, so whatever. I want to get the word out. I have a friend, Collin. He’s been fighting cancer for over a year now, and has handled his struggle with a level of courage that I could only dream of having. Today I was informed that hospice was called.
Collin has a young son, and a wife. Please take a minute, and say a prayer for him.
I was able to get my hands on a Surefire G2X Pro earlier this week, and I’ve been playing with and comparing it to some other lights I have around the house, and I must say, I’m pretty impressed.
According to Surefire’s website, this particular light is 5.2″ long, and the bezel is 1.25″ in diameter. The G2X Pro is a dual mode light, with a 15 lumen low, and a 200 lumen high. The light is advertised at a 4.4oz weight, and runs on 2, CR123 batteries.At the time of this post, these lights are running about $95 at most online retailers I looked at.
Here’s a couple of pictures of the G2X Pro with a 2 3/4″ Winchester 12ga slug, and a round of 5.56 for scale:
I compared the high beam of the G2X Pro to my Streamlight TLR-1, which is advertised at 180 lumens, and [...]
Great match last night with a lot of new shooters, and a lot of very good shooters as well. These matches are a really good time, and there is a big group of us that usually finish near the top that always show up, trash talk with each other, and have a fun night. I ended up in second place, with the spread of scores between 2nd, 3ed and 4th being very, very close:
17.69, 17.45, and 17.33 respectively.With 5th place dropping down into the 15′s.
Mr. Craig G. showed us all how to shoot, taking first place with a 21.04, and the highest score on 3/4 of the stages. Nice shootin’ Craig!
Anyways, here’s the video of Heath and I on the 2 longer stages:
June is going to be a big month for the shooting sports in the Triangle area. We have a couple of big matches coming up that will be bringing world class shooters to the area that you night want to know about.
The first big match is the Tarheel 3-gun Challenge, which is going to be held on June 2nd and 3rd. This match is part of the 3 Gun Nation series, and will be bringing many of the big name shooters into the area. I didn’t get a slot in the match, but I am planning to head down and get some pictures, and cover the match as best I can.
The second big match in June is the IDPA Carolina Cup at The Range in Oxford, NC. The Carolina Cup is known as one of the best IDPA matches of the year, and will also bring in shooters [...]

As most of you probably know, Tropical Storm Alberto is just a little ways off the coast of South Carolina right now. In this episode I cover a couple things regarding preparedness for hurricanes, as we are due for a big one any time now.
Also, when tropical storms and hurricanes come through, it generally prompts the Governor to declare a “State of Emergency” in order to secure some federal funding for clean up efforts, etc. In the past, when a SOE was declared, a little known law would kick in, making it illegal to transport firearms anywhere in the state. This was recently overturned, but now more shenanigans are afoot with the state legislature.
Check out the links below for more specifics about preparedness, and HB 489.
