Red vs Green

My eyes are more partial to the green…

There are a ton of accessories and modifications available out there for your self-defense handgun. Some are useful, but let’s be honest — there’s a lot of stuff you can do to your gun that’s not really going to make any measurable difference. But if you’re looking for an upgrade that will actually add some utility to your pistol, I can’t think of many investments better than a laser sight. This is a topic I’ve covered before here on the Lounge. I’m a big fan of laser sights, particularly for their capability in low light situations.

Of the handgun laser sights on the market right now, Crimson Trace is the clear leader, primarily due to their products that feature “instinctive activation”. Their laser grips and laser guards place the activation switch on the grip of the handgun, so as long as you’re holding the gun, the laser is on. No extra switches or buttons to reach for — just present the pistol like normal, and the laser is on the target.

The downside is that these types of lasers only work with the guns they were designed for. Crimson Trace’s catalog covers a wide variety of handguns, including the many of the most popular models, but they don’t have a laser grip or laser guard for every gun out there. So as an alternative, Crimson Trace also offers an assortment of rail-mounted lasers and lights that will fit any handgun or rifle that has an accessory rail. They sent us a Railmaster Pro to review; a rail-mounted unit that includes a 100 lumen light and a green laser rather than the more typical red.

Looking at the new products coming from Crimson Trace and other laser sight manufacturers, it looks like green lasers are the future. They’re supposedly brighter and easier for the human eye to see compared to red lasers. The downside is the power requirement. Green lasers drain batteries quicker and at least for now, they’re also more expensive to manufacture.

Ms.Clean 2.0 The Double – Kickstarter

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/823246061/msclean-20-the-double

MS. Clean has launched their double thick magazine shaped AR-15/M-4 cleaning kit on Monday, Feburary 23rd to April 8th. With the success of the single Ms. Clean kit, and customer demand for a bigger container, Ms. Clean has set out to have another successful Kickstarter. This time they are offering premium products from other trusted companies. Along with the standard tools every kit will include a Tactical Tailor pouch, a B5 Systems carbon bolt scraper, a Bore Snake, a choice of premium lubricants from FrogLube, Breakthrough Clean, or FireClean, and an option for a Multitasker Series 3 AR-15 multi-tool.

The MS. Clean will be offering a selection of rifle cleaning kits, a trauma kit, a Fight Soap hygiene kit, or an empty case that user can adapt to their changing needs. The MS. Clean will be offered in black and red with a chance for supports to unlock other colors such as Flat Dark Earth and Olive Drab. In addition to the double kits the Kickstarter will have additional add on options for single Ms. Clean cases and kits, stickers, patches, Tricorne’s 550 chord Spool Tool, Multitasker Series 3’s, and larger sizes of our premium lubricants.

MS. Clean allows a shooter to carry their firearms cleaning kit or trauma kit on their gear, pack, or range bag where it can be easily accessed when needed. The case is chemical resistant and doubles as a container to place small parts of a firearm easily lost while field maintenance is being performed. MS. Clean comes standard with steel cleaning rods necessary for removal barrel obstructions in the field. The crush resistant reinforced polymer case keeps your firearm’s maintenance tools and lubricants safe and organized. The magazine shape allows the kit to be stored in abundantly available double NATO magazine pouches. Previous field cleaning kits came in soft pouches that could not be conveniently removed for use and were easily crushed, spilling lubricant onto the shooter’s gear. MS. Clean solves these problems and was designed from the ground up, by professionals, to address the specialized needs of those men and women protecting our country. Every Kickstarter level has the option to be used as a donation and we will send those items to members of the armed services that are currently deployed.

The Alternative In Lethal Force

The Alternative

The Alternative

Alternative Ballistics is marketing ‘The Alternative’ as a snap-on tool for police use to reduce fatalities. I say that there is already an alternative — it’s called a tazer. If an officer feels a threat warrants more response than a tazer, then the next step is to use a pistol. Not a crippled pistol such as this. This is just my personal opinion.
