Gear Review: Condor Urban Go Pack Review

Up for review is the Condor Outdoor Urban Go Pack. A spacious pack, this item is feature rich, with a large capacity; 48 L in fact. I tested out this pack over the course of about 8 hours, and as many miles in the Georgia mountains, loaded out with between 20 and 40 lbs each... Read More

Gear Review: Kineti-tech Glock Drop In Trigger

We love our Glocks here at SGPT. Their ease of use, modularity, proven dependability, and lightweight to capacity ratio lends itself to liking them – whether you’re an avid shooter or first time pistol buyer. They are simple to maintain, and have a decent stock trigger. Pictured left are a stock trigger system removed, a... Read More

Gear Review: Vortex Sparc AR

By Alexander Castiglione I’ve been on an optics bender lately. You’ve probably read some of the reviews – from pistol optics to rifle optics. And for the money, the Sparc AR by Vortex is one of the best red dots on the market. It’s sleek, it’s rugged, it’s simple to use, and it runs on... Read More

Gear Review: Trijicon RMR Type 2 3.25 MOA Red Dot

The Trijicon RM06 is pretty much the gold standard in the RMR or compact, weapon mounted red dot world. RMR, if you didn’t know, stands for Ruggedized Miniature Reflex Sight, and this sucker is rugged. Capable of being mounted on a RMR slide cut on a Glock, like I have mine mounted to my Shadow...

Gear Review: Overwatch Precision TAC Glock Trigger

I’ve got aftermarket triggers in pretty much all my Glocks, except the full sized “duty guns” I own. And that’s for a couple reasons. First off, full size Glocks (17/21, etc) have smooth trigger faces unlike the G19 or G26 which has ridges. Also, I carry and shoot compact and subcompacts far more, so I... Read More

Gear Review: CRKT Septimo Folding Knife

  Up for review today we have the Septimo – a knife designed by a combat veteran and Green Beret Jeremy Valdez. According to CRKT – it “was designed by a seasoned Green Beret to be more than a knife—he forged it of experience and created it to serve as a lifeline. One unique Veff Serration... Read More

Gear Review: Rescue Essentials 5.11 UCR IFAK (Individual First Aid Kit)

” If you’re going to put holes in people, you better know how to close them up.” That’s something I’ve thought, and many others have as well. It’s why we have Direct Action Medical courses – to remedy that deficit in training and thinking – like the Dark Angel Medical Course.  And whether or not you carry,... Read More

Blonyx HMB Creatine Review

Check out my personal review when using Blonyx HMB Creatine. First off – what is HMB and should you be taking creatine? HMB is a naturally occurring compound that is derived from the amino acid leucine. It is known to have anti-catabolic properties, meaning it helps reduce muscle protein breakdown, especially during intense exercise or... Read More

Gear Review: Blue Force Gear Micro TKN

Everyone needs to have not only a first aid kit, but a trauma kit. Let me say that again, NOT ONLY a first aid kit, but a TRAUMA kit. First aid kits treat boo boos. Trauma kits treat bullet wounds, and other acute injuries. One of the most comprehensive and compact trauma kits I’ve seen... Read More

Gear Review: Brute Force Strongman Sandbag

We love our sandbag training over here at SGPT for alot of reasons. Given the unstable nature of them, and the shifting weight inside them, every rep is like your first rep. It’s not like barbell work: symmetrical, easy to cycle, and consistent. Also, it’s a lot like real life. You’re not always goind to... Read More

Gear Review: Vortex Venom 6 MOA Red Dot Sight

There are tons of companies that are making red dot sights (RDS, for short) for pistol applications. With that advent, a bunch of RDS’s have hit the market, and it’s tough to figure out which one. Ranging from a hundred to nearly a thousand dollars—making the call can be tough. Luckily, we here at SGPT... Read More
