A pliable wire nose bridge allows you to adjust the mask around your nose for comfort. The non-washable masks are designed to be disposed of once the useful life is completed.

A portion of the proceeds for each mask you purchase will be donated to Feeding America, which helps those directly impacted by the recent economic downturn.

Rock River Arms RRAGE AR Pistol

Rock River Arms RRAGE AR Pistol

From Media Direct Creative

Rock River Arms, one of the industry leaders in AR-platform firearms, expands its line of defensive semi-autos with the introduction of the RRAGE 10.5-inch pistol. This new model is the latest in the growing line of rifles and pistols based on the RRAGE platform.

The RRAGE 10.5 pistol (model #DS2142) is built on RRA’s RRAGE upper and lower receiver and handguard assemblies, which deliver a sleek profile that presents the components with an almost unitized appearance.

If you want to learn more about aluminum used in AR construction, my interview with experts in the field explains a lot.

Chambered in 5.56 NATO, the pistol features a 10.5-inch chrome moly barrel with a 1:9 twist rate and a low-profile gas block. Backing the pistol is SB Tactical’s SBA3 stabilizing arm brace, which provides five-position adjustability to ensure optimal fit for any shooter.

Another highlight of the RRAGE 10.5 pistol is the handguard. Slim and smooth with M-LOK compatibility for accessories, its lightweight aluminum construction and free-float design adds little to weight and bulk while providing a full-length top rail for accommodating an optic at varying eye relief distances.

For home defense, vehicle carry, or recreational shooting, the RRAGE 10.5 pistol presents top performance at a budget-oriented price.

Caliber: 5.56mm NATO

Travel After COVID-19 Shelter-in-Place Orders

Travel After COVID-19 Shelter-in-Place Orders

Many of us are itching to travel after COVID-19 shelter-in-place orders are lifted and summer arrives. The outing may be just a few hours away, but criminals know everyone’s dying for a well-deserved escape, they have plans of their own.

The FBI’s 2013 Uniform Crime Report estimated there were 1,928,465 burglaries across the nation that year, and 74 percent of the time they occurred in a residence. Total loss to homeowners was $4.5 billion, for an average of $2,322 per crime.  

Some firearms are included in those figures, but the numbers highlight shooters’ dedication to securing their collections. The assessed value of office-style equipment, television/stereos/gaming systems, household goods, food and liquor, clothing, jewelry and precious metals stolen that year all exceeded that of the guns reported missing.

Today’s enthusiasts use safes, trigger locks, vaults and alarms, but law enforcement agencies also recommend some common-sense tips that can enhance home security while you’re away. Here are a few from the pros. 

Lived In Look

Nearly every department recommends making your home look occupied while you’re away. Newspapers stacked on the lawn, overstuffed mailbox and deliveries on the front porch are an invitations for trouble, but there’s a modern twist.

Authorities in Memphis, TN, warn, “Never cancel general deliveries such as mail, milk, newspapers and other services when leaving town or on vacation. But, don’t let those newspaper deliveries pile up, either.” A trusted friend should collect the bills and look around the house closely, because one burglar in San Diego admitted he, “…might leave a pizza flyer in your front door to see how long it takes you to remove it.”

Timers on two lights and a radio inside indicate occupancy, but San Diego’s Police Department adds, “Leave the bathroom light on with the door ajar to add to the impression that someone may be home.” Automatic yard lighting at night and motion-sensing floodlights are a consensus safety tip. 

Law enforcement in Fort Lauderdale advises having a neighbor use your trash can helps sell the ruse. If you trust someone with a key, Minneapolis authorities recommend, “Leave your drapes in the normal position. Have a neighbor close them at night and open them at daylight, or use sheers.”

Cut the lawn before you leave. Ask a neighbor to park in your driveway and return the favor later. “Set the bell on your telephone on low,” Minneapolis adds. “A loudly ringing, unanswered phone is a sign no one is home.”  

Social No No

The San Diego Police advise, “Never announce your vacation plans on Facebook, My Space, Twitter, or other social networking sites.” Philadelphia cautions, “Many burglars use these sites to identify ‘safe’ targets,” adding, “…at the very least, keep your location status off any public social-networking pages.”

Added Precautions

Lock the garage door and padlock it on the track inside. Request work staff to be cautious with customer inquiries about your whereabouts. Some law enforcement agencies will also check on the house, including Laramie, WY, and Fort Smith, AR, so it’s worth asking.  


Early last year, The Economist asked Liberty Safe’s Brandon Payne how many safes it was selling a day. His answer was a staggering 500, each made-to-the-customer’s specification. Coupled with the growth of other major manufacturers, it’s obvious modern gun owners are serious about their responsibility and are eager to make the required investment. In fact, a November 2012 Department of Justice (DOJ) Crime Data Brief found gun thefts dropped by nearly 50 percent from 2005 and 2010, despite the fact FBI NICs checks increased from 8,952,945 to 14,409,616 during the same period. The DOJ website says, “Longer trends from 1994 to 2010 show a 49 percent decline in the total number of victimizations involving the theft of at least one firearm.”

Another San Diego burglar has a warning for smaller vault owners, though. “I won’t have enough time to break into that safe where you keep your valuables. But, I’ll take it with me if it’s not bolted down.”

Know Before You Go

If you’re traveling with a firearm, it’s also your duty to know the regulations at your destination and any stops along the way. Visit the NRA/ILA web page for detailed information before you go, including state-by-state reciprocity.

XS Sights Introduces Second Generation XTI DXS Ember Standard Dot

XS Sights Introduces Second Generation XTI DXS Ember Standard Dot

From XS Sights

XS Sights is pleased to introduce the XTI2 DXS Ember Standard Dot 45-Degree Offset Iron Sights for AR-15 rifles.  The second generation XTI2 sights are a close-quarters, secondary sighting solution for rapid transition from a magnified primary optic—eliminating the need to adjust magnification reduces target engagement time when every fraction of a second counts.

The XTI2 features taller bases than its predecessor for easier sight alignment without having to break a standard cheek weld, and the base angle has been increased to accommodate wider lens optics. The front sight measures 0.140-inch wide and now features an Orange Ember Glow Dot for increased visibility.

“Our new XTI2 express sights are engineered for rapid sight acquisition in close quarters,” said Zack Kinsley, Product Marketing Manager for XS Sights.  “These advanced offset iron sights are also ideal for 3-gun competitions when targets are close—within pistol range and where magnified optics make target identification more difficult.  XS’s proprietary Orange Ember Glow technology provides a high contrast front sight in bright light and is instantly charged by the sun’s UV rays, causing it to glow in shadows and low light settings such as vehicles.” 

XTI2 sight sets are mounted in front of the primary optic to reduce snagging on chest rings.   The sights ship with thread locker and a front sight adjustment tool. 

High-Contrast Color Front SightHighly visible orange for bright-light shooting
Ember™ Glow DotPhotoluminescent dot absorbs ambient light and glows in shadows and low-light settings
Rear Sight Windage AdjustmentRear sight is driftable allowing easy windage adjustability

MEPRO Foresight + Your Smartphone

MEPRO Foresight + Your Smartphone

From Meprolight

The digitally advanced MEPRO Foresight provides features and benefits to shooters who want the latest advances in red dot optics and to the traditional shooters who prefer a single red dot. Shooters across a wide range of disciplines and expertise—Self Defense, Competitive, Law Enforcement, Hunters and New Shooters—now have the opportunity to upgrade their capabilities. It is the first digitally enhanced red dot sight, providing critical real-time data to the user’s FOV. The reticle and data are projected onto the Foresight’s glass much like the heads up display a fighter pilot sees when he zeroes in on a target. The shooter who prefers a single red-dot reticle can select that option or the shooter who wants as much real-time information can load the data they prefer to the optic window.

The state-of-the-art Foresight includes the Meprolight App which is unique in that its web-based-smart-phone Bluetooth connectivity allows the shooter to select and store five reticles from a large database of reticles. Scroll through menu and select the reticle that fits your need. Reticle options include 1 MOA dot and 1 MOA dot with circle. In addition to five reticles you can store the data from 10 different weapons—rifles or shotguns. The built-in Picatinny rail attachment allows you to simply move the optic from one gun to another More importantly, it gives you confidence knowing you have already zeroed that weapon and stored the ballistic data which is vital when changing between calibers or if you use supersonic and subsonic ammo in the same caliber. The integrated light sensor automatically determines reticle brightness. The Meprolight App features include internal compass, level/cant indicator, battery strength monitor and shot counter.

The Foresight, first of its kind, provides greater technical advantages by allowing the user to utilize the Meprolight App that is included as well as free access to download the Double Shot—Automatic Digital Zeroing—App allowing the shooter to zero the weapon without touching the optic solving the concern of new shooters uncertain of zeroing their gun. The user starts by shooting a multi-shot group and uploading a photo of the grouping to the app. The system analyzes your mean point of impact and zeroes the weapon automatically.

Real time projected data—providing the shooter with critical ballistic data — all displayed to a wide, image-sharp, viewing window, the Foresight increases you shooting capabilities depending on your need. Like your smart phone, it is powered by a rechargeable USB-C battery.

And the company also recently released backup iron sights that feature tritium inserts. They are definitely worth a look here.

Real Avid Introduces New Gun Tool CORE–AR15

Gun Tool CORE–AR15

From Media Direct Creative

Real Avid, the Leader in DIY for Guns, introduces the Gun Tool CORE–AR15, one of the newest additions to Real Avid’s growing line of Gun Multi-tools. Designed to be streamlined, but big on solving the most commonly encountered problems, the Gun Tool CORE–AR15’s whole mission is to “Keep It Ready.”

As the name implies, Gun Tool CORE–AR15 is all about core AR15 function and being a multi-tool, it equips the owner to handle a wide array of possible tasks without having to carry around bulky tools. Gun Multi-tools from Real Avid are focused on guns, that’s it. These specialized tools aren’t for plumbers, handymen, electricians, homeowners, farmers or even boy scouts…. unless they’re gun owners.

Gun Tool CORE–AR15 empowers users to keep their AR15’s up and running in the field or at the range. It is focused on solving the most important problems that a shooter might encounter in order to keep their gun fully functional. While it works perfectly fine on a gun bench, Gun Tool CORE’s purpose is to solve problems wherever the owner uses their gun. Easy to carry with carabiner like modularity it easily secures to molle straps or a belt. Gun Tool CORE is a must have carry tool for serious shooters.

Howard Tripp, Chief Innovation Officer said, “We designed The Gun Tool CORE–AR15 to be the ideal tool for performing the most critical ‘keep shooting’ tasks on your AR15 without being bulky. This a compact but hard-core tool. We’ve all had ‘Oh Crap’ moments that end a day at the range. Many of us own AR15’s because of how much fun they are to shoot, or because we want to be armed and ready for bad situations that come our way un-invited.  Regardless of why someone owns an AR15, they want it to function every time they need to shoot. Gun Tool CORE is for that gun owner.”

The Gun Tool CORE–AR15 has a unique, but very practical design. It packs six different tools into a folding metal frame. Simply put it is hard-core. The rugged cast and machined metal tool frame is engineered to provide exceptional strength, but in a form factor that fits in the palm of your hand. All six tools tuck into the frame and when folded out, lock in place. The front site adjuster and take-down pin punch are cleverly designed as a folding assembly. The take-down punch is the anchor for the folding and locking assembly. The front sight tool fits over the take down punch and attaches to the threaded base of the punch. The entire assembly seamlessly folds into the tool frame and provides carabiner like function to be able to hang the tool from a belt loop or Molle Strap without drawing attention. The heart and soul of Gun Tool CORE are 2 different carbon scrapers that effectively remove burnt carbon from 12 different bolt carrier group surfaces. Each scraper precisely fits every mil-spec dimension of the bolt carrier group surfaces including firing pin, bolt face, bolt waist, bolt lugs, boat tail and inside the bolt carrier itself.

Dave Steiner, Real Avid president commented, “While Gun Tool CORE–AR15 is compact, make no mistake it is highly capable. With it, a user can quickly remove carbon from every surface of a sticky bolt and bolt carrier, clear “brass over bolt” jams, punch out stubborn takedown pins or make on-the-fly optics and front-sight adjustments. We designed it to be streamlined, but big on solving the most commonly encountered problems. It’s whole mission is to ‘Keep It Ready’.”

Gun Tool CORE–AR15 Features:

  • Heavy-duty liner-locks keep tools secure in use
  • Bolt scraper – scrape carbon from 12 bolt carrier group surfaces
  • Carrier and firing pin scrapers
  • Cord cutter and bottle opener
  • Bolt override and scope turret adjuster
  • Takedown punch and A2 front sight adjuster
  • Carabiner-like function secures to molle straps
