DPMS Panther Arms LRT-SASS Rifle

May 1, 2007

Simply put, the LRT-SASS is an AR-15 on steroids. It is larger in size, larger in caliber, and heavier in weight. The LRT-SASS I used for this review arrived in a padded “gun case” with the owner’s manuals, two 19-round magazines, one LRT with four position handguards with covers, Mangonel front/rear flip-up sights, a sling, and a Harris bipod—all in all, a ready-to-use package.

Gerber Legendary Blades--Kinderer Rescue Knife

August 1, 2006

Lighting The Way

June 1, 2006

More than 25 years ago I enlisted in the Air Force Reserve as a security policeman. Back then a duty light was the two “D” cell, right angle light. If you were able to track down the straight version, man you were on the cutting edge of light technology. It wasn’t long after I arrived back home to my unit that we got really high tech with the arrival of the Mag Lite. This was like introducing the centerfire cartridge to an infantryman.
