Let’s talk about IFAK’s

Prior post on installing scopes and my soon to be experiment with cheap rings, but lapping them and the results.

Mil, MOA or inches?

Below are pictures of the Condor MA41 pouch I was discussing.  There are others I really like, but they get pricey when you add extra panels and such and run well over a hundred once you get the IFAK and a pair of multiple panels.  I like the option of multiple panels so I can use it on my range bag, thigh rig, battle belt, etc.

But, that being the case, this only ran less than $35.00 or so and I’m really satisfied with the flexibility vs cost ratio.

The only thing missing that I haven’t gotten around to doing yet are putting laminated index cards of what each bandage type is and how many should be in each bag.  It’s important to keep up on your stock.  Mylar bags work EXTREMELY well for this and I have some on order.  They are only $8.00 or so and last a long time and lay really flat.  Craft zip bags work well as they are usually thicker and can be reused enough times.  They were a Walmart find for 2 bucks!

Stewart Rhodes speaks at the First Annual NY Oath Keepers Awards Dinner

Stewart Rhodes was the keynote speaker at the first annual NY Oath Keepers awards dinner.  The video was recorded by Mert Melfa.

Below, you’ll find video.  For those that listen to the podcast via an aggregator using RSS, the audio file is available in our feed and via download right here.

Thanks to Mert Melfa for allowing me to convert and share the audio of Stewart’s speech.

Here are some good videos on rifle scope mounting.

I was recently looking at a few videos on rifle scope mounting and found there are quite a few good videos out on Youtube on the topic.

The key thing to look for in these four videos is they have some common feature sets (like how to adjust your mounting screws and such), yet, they also vary in some areas as well.  I’ve been of the school of level for the shooter, not necessarily the table and such.  But there are great pros and cons illustrated in these videos.  I think there is enough difference to show you alternative ways of achieving the main objective, a properly installed scope.  After all, every dollar saved, can go towards tools and ammo.

Below, are a few of my favorites:

I can’t say enough about the video series above. Total quality and education.
