The Watch From Hagerstown, Maryland

The Watch From Hagerstown, Maryland

Hager Watch

A former Marine I know, husband, father, and pretty smart guy created his own watch company.  He was always in to expensive time pieces and classy jewelry.  After putting a lot of “time” in to learning the trade he decided to create his own with the same quality and his specs.

Ballsy move; but what do you expect from a former Marine?

commandoHis company is even giving some love to his hometown of Hagerstown, MD.  Check out Hager Watches and see for yourself.  I had one.  It seemed to have walked away.  I’m planning to get another.  Get one for yourself this holiday season.  And tell Pete you heard it from me.

Film Studio In Fairfax Va That Makes Magic Happen

Film Studio In Fairfax Va That Makes Magic Happen

Did you know there is a video production company you can rent to create a television show, commercial, or movie short in Northern Virginia? I would have never known that except for the fact that a retired friend of mine introduced me to Thunderbolt Studios. They are phenomenal and I watched them build the place up from nothing. What is really cool is that the place is always being built. Whatever you need they will do in the studio to make your set fit you.

I had the opportunity to present a “sizzle reel” of my accomplishments to a cable network interested in pimping me out in the outdoor spaces. Thunderbolt worked with me and created this video.

The cable network thing didn’t work out, (thank God) but I have this video to share with you. These guys are my friends. They are trusted, pro-rights folks, as well.

Super belt Review

Super belt Review

When is the last time you paid attention to your belt or the belt used to hold up your pants and your gun?

One of the reasons you might hate your job is that you’re miserable physically all day. Not only is it that your feet hurt and your ballistic vest gets heavy but you’re having trouble keeping your pants in the right place.

One fix, might just be a good belt.

A good belt is more than fashion. It’s just smart. A good belt keeps your gun in the same place. A good belt gives you a good platform to perform a good draw. If you wear uniform it holds up your Sam Brown (police)belt better. What is better? Better is comfortable. better is better on your back and lower spine. If you spent all day pulling your waist up that’s not good.

I’ve been wearing this belt for about a year  now and I love it.

It’s worth it. Buy it now and never have to buy again. Your pants stay put and you look better. And one importantly you feel better.

The folks at DaltechForce.com gave me a really cool product to review. it was a belt. When is the last time you thought about belts or belt loops? I know, right? This one is different.

Well this is a great belt. Not sure what it is made out of but it feels good and strong. Its comfortable and holds my pants and holsters up without binding, pinching, wilting or any of the other things that happen to leather. This thing is supposed to be water, dirt, chemical and weather resistant. I believe it. I give it a five out of five. Its my new favorite belt. If you order one you can save 10% if you use the code iBelt35 at http://daltechforce.com

 

It’s here.  Don’t forget the coupon code.  code iBelt35

How I stay cool and warm at the same time

How I stay cool and warm at the same time

Here’s a coat you need the next time you go to SHOT Show. especially at Media Day at the range. It is light, comfortable, and can carry your concealed firearm. It even has locking zippers. It’s the Concealed carry men’s caliber Elite Parka from undertechundercover.com I really like it. I give it 5 Stars.

The hood detaches in the back if you don’t want to wear it.  It’s more professional looking and non-tactical operator looking than most.  Feels good.

Every year a day before the actually National Shooting Sports Foundations’ Shooting, Hunting, and Outdoor Trade Show they have a special day out at the Boulder City Gun Club in Nevada, called Media Day at the Range.  It’s a highly coveted day where at least 100 vendors, and gun companies allow the media, traditional journalist and new media folks like me, (bloggers, podcasters and Youtubers) shoot and handle new stuff.

Not everyone that applies for this event gets to go.

The weather out in the gigantic space is usually colder than you would think Nevada would be.  Sometimes its pleasant.  Sometimes its butt ugly cold.  I have been there as snowflakes fell.  It has always been the best part of the trip though because all the who’s who of new media is there.

This jacket is perfect for that occasion.  Big thanks to Tammy and Lenny for letting me review this parka.

PRODUCT REVIEWS

PRODUCT REVIEWS

Follow me here for gun and product reviews. I live on the outskirts of the Nations’ Capital. I guess you could call it suburbs but I have trees, water and wildlife on my property. And I like it like that. I am still in the Old Line State where gun control runs rampant. Even though we have a handgun roster board that restricts hundreds of firearms that can be sold here I try to review firearms and equipment as a urban shooter, outdoorsman and former law enforcement officer might enjoy as I am offered.

Does an urban gun owner have different viewpoint? Yes. For one, we are a growing segment of the gun owning population. We typically have to shoot at indoor ranges instead of open ones. Many of us are security guards, police officers and or military veterans. We usually don’t have family support for shooting. Our churches, mosques and social groups often don’t approve. We shoot in pairs, three if we are social, if not solo. We mostly shoot handguns and slowly venturing out into the rifle market. We have always had a shotgun although rarely was in anything other than home defense. It was usually our first purchase, now destined to collect dust at home.

From this category I hope to share products that I am given to review as a urban shooter. If you like to see something in particular, send me a note and I will hit my friends in the industry and see if anyone can help you. We are a new market. We have always been here but they didn’t know it.

These times they are a changing….
