Go get your @goon_squad_supply_co patch and hit the range! Range day spilled over into range night!
For the past five years I’ve been buying, using, destroying, and re-selling various equipment. Sometimes it’s as simple as buying a piece of gear to use for five months and then re-sell it. Why? Perspective. Experience. If you want to study a subject you must immerse yourself in it. Building your perspective as much as possible so you have a good reference of what is good and bad. In order to set standards, you have to develop perspective first. I’ll be publishing more of my findings and perspective through @trexarms, where we are supporting the products we like. Education is everything to us.
We (@tacuptraining & @cdttraining) had a great Low Light Carbine class last night at @shoothtc. We had 32% illum. until the end class, but the HOT, HUMID and STAGNANT conditions we were running in really really lennded themselves to understand how smoke from a muzzle, or suppressor can really impair and complicate one’s ability to clearly see the threat and identify it as close as 50 yards. It dint matter what kind of optic you were running, it affected almost everyone.
Mawl had to work on grandparents day so she couldn't go eat breakfast with Preslee at her school so she came and picked her up this morning to take her on a breakfast date so she could make up for not being able to make it... #Mawl#PresleeMonroe#LateGrandparentsDayBreakfast
This was me today. I literally met the postman at his truck to get my #MAWL Since I’m still working on the Goggle side of the NV set up, I currently have a $2500 laser toy for my dog. She’s happy though. I blame you @presscheckconsulting and @tapracktactical ... and I thank the good folks at @opdsource for getting this thing in the mail before they went under water. #nightjigglin
Did some white light work around vehicles in Aaron’s class this week. The Surefire M600DF is a BEAST... my light alone illuminated the entire range. With a few rounds down range however, with the humidity, smoke and dust, the reflection was high enough that it was pretty much impossible to PID my target from behind the rifle. So I switched to my vis laser and was able to pick my head up and look over the cloud. I’ve never been big on pressure switches on rifles, but with the MAWL now, I think I’m going to add one - repositioning my grip to activate the white light was just too slow. Lots of discovery learning here in just 45 seconds of shooting. @guerrilla_approach #vortexnation#vortexoptics @bemeyers #mawl#bcm
My legs are still recovering from two days of training with @guerrilla_approach but had a great time and walked away with some new ideas on fighting around vehicles. Really like how Aaron presents his material and thought the content was excellent. Lots of fun - looking forward to training with him again. Big thanks to Janesville PD for hosting us. #vortexnation#vortexoptics#bcm#mawl#surefire

Everything on your weapon must be purposeful and thoughtfully placed. This is my primary carbine. BCM 11” SBR with a Geissele 9.5” Mk8 Rail. SBR’s have limited #railestate so I need to make the most of every T slot.
Every social gun needs to have a white light. If you can’t PID your target in low light, you’re a liability to your team and just plain unsafe. If you use Night Vision, you need to have a laser/Illuminator for the same reason mentioned above.
I have a @surefire_llc M300U 500 lumen light mounted at the 11 o’clock on a @unitytactical FUSION Micro Hub 2.0. This puts the clicky/remote tailcap in easy, yet deliberate access of my support hand thumb. The Micro Hub also has a Unity Tactical FUSION Folding BUIS mounted on top. Directly behind behind is the insane @bemeyers MAWL. It’s design puts the activation button with easy reach of my support hand thumb.
Both my light and laser are above bore, which makes it easier to clear barricades (I only need to worry about clearing my muzzle now). And, this setup gives me 💯 direct mechanical access to both device controls. It can even be built in reverse to accommodate lefties.
Regardless, I still run a TAPS dual pressure switch. Why? Because doing so gives me the ability to activate both devices with the opposite hand if I need to switch shoulders.
