Phantom sent me their M-LOK 12” FREE-FLOAT HANDGUARD Here’s a list of the specs and features: The Phantom M-LOC 12″ handguard features... Read More

Gear Review: 5.11 Tactical TacTec Plate Carrier

I have quite a few weight vests, and quite a few plate carriers–many of them have been reviewed here on SGPT. From the HighCom Security R.A.K Body Armor to the Ironwear Fitness Uni Vest  , we’ve put our fair share through it. Now, all of that being said, the 511 plate carrier is my favorite to... Read More

Gear Review: Zenbivy Sleep System

It may seem off to see something like a “sleep system” in a gear review. After all, what is that? Shouldn’t it just be bed rolls and/or tents and/or bivouac reviews? Well yes and no. As we will get into, the Zenbivy is much more than just a sleeping bag, or just a mattress. It’s,... Read More

Gear Review: CRKT Du Hoc

It’s no surprise that we love our blades here at SGPT. Whether it’s a field knife that can cut through rebar like the FirstEdge HR-1 or a discreet blade to carry everyday – like the SOG Pent Arc Folding Knife. But this one we have for review today is a mean mother that means business: the SOG Du... Read More

Gear Review: Bravo Concealment Holster and Mag Carrier

I’ve got a lot of holsters. A lot. Seriously, I might have a problem. Considering how much I like to compete, and in various divisions, necessarily I have different holsters for different rigs and load outs. But I have to say, if I had one holster I could carry OWB and one gun only I... Read More

Gear Review: Phoozy XP3 Phone Protector

If you’re reading this, you’re likely an active person. You’re out in the bush, on the range, hitting the trails, paddle boarding, whatever comes your way. My guess is because of that previous statement, you’ve also likely lost a couple phones; casualties of your active lifestyle as it were. Well worry not, my sunshine and... Read More

Gear Review: Shadow Systems Gen 4 Glock 19 Optics Ready Top End

I wouldn’t call myself a Glock Fanboy—but I do love them for their simplicity of use, ease of maintenance, and customization. I mean, they’re essentially the firearm equivalent of Legos – polymer and configurable in whatever you can conjure in your mind’s eye. But I also like a shoot other platforms in competition – CZ’s,... Read More

Gear Review: Palmetto State Armory PA10 – .308 AR Rifle

The AR platform – short for Armalite Rifle, not Assault Rifle – comes in so many flavors and varieties. Carbine length gas systems, 7.5 inch barrels, rifle length buffer tubes, NiB bolt carriers….the possibilities are endless. To give one even more choice paralysis, there are a variety of different calibers you can obtain; 5.56, .300 BLK, and... Read More

Gear Review: Crossbreed Holster – IWB Glock 26

Up on the gear review block this time is a fantastic little holster for EDC made by Crossbreed. My go to EDC in summer months is a Glock 26 for many reasons (we’ll do an article going over EDC pieces and their pros and cons). I got my hands on a Crossbreed Freedom Carry in... Read More

We got another IWB option for you guys today, specifically for one of my favorite all around pistols – the Glock 19. This one is from Holster Co, which makes a plethora of IWB and OWB holster and magazine configurations. The Stealth and Backup (magazine carrier), are great options for concealment, and well made by this...

Fjallraven Keb Trouser Review

I picked up a pair of the Fjallraven keb trousers back in the summer of 2017 just before departing to our annual Freak Frog Montana event. These pants are super comfortable to wear. In the photo above I am wearing the pants during our Freak Frog Montana 3 day event. I wore the pants every... Read More

Gear Review: Shadow Systems Optic Ready Slide and Trigger

When like-minded people get together, usually awesome things happen. The new products from Shadow Systems in Plano, Texas are pretty awesome, we must admit. But then again, it’s formed by shooters, operators, grunts, and engineers; including Clint Emerson. Their attention to detail and trigger time really lent itself to creating a fantastic parts to build... Read More
