August TacPack Subscription Box

As we mentioned previously on the GunLink Blog and in the TacPack thread on the GunLink forums, we signed up for a subscription to the TacPack subscription box – a monthly delivery of an assortment of tactical gear, accessories, gun parts, knives, and more.

The August Box has arrived and this post covers what is in it.  If you are a subscriber and don’t want the surprise to be spoiled, don’t keep reading.  We’ll take down the spoiler alert and switch to the regular TacPack blog post format after a few days once everyone else has had a chance to open theirs.

SHOT Show 2017 Range Day Photos

The 2017 National Shooting Sport Foundation’s (NSSF) Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show (SHOT Show) officially kicks off tomorrow and, as it has for years, today yielded the opportunity for members of the media and industry buyers to get hands-on trigger time with some of the newest and most innovative firearms and accessories that are hitting the shelves.  The GunLink team was on hand from the opening shots through the last call so we could get first hand information and experience to pass along to those who were unable to make it out.

Check out the SHOT Show Industry Day at the Range photos below and keep an eye right here on the GunLink Blog and on the GunLink Forums for more details on our live-fire excursion into the new firearms market, from the new Hudson H9 pistol through the Smith & Wesson Performance Center M&P 10 modern sporting rifle chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor.    Continue reading

Alien Gear Holsters Releases New Cloak Tuck 3.0: Concealed Nation Edition

aliengearconcealednationIn response to winning Concealed Nation’s 2016 “Best Holster in the History of Ever” reader poll, Alien Gear Holsters teamed up with the concealed carry website powerhouse to deliver the all-new Cloak Tuck 3.0: Concealed Nation Edition.

Sporting a brand new look, the Cloak Tuck 3.0: Concealed Nation Edition comes as a product of a dual collaboration between both brands.

During the online poll, Alien Gear Holsters won several titles from Concealed Nation’s readers, including the highest in gun holster comfort, holster utilization, repeat business and affordability rates.

For Customer Service Team Leader Maxwell Wiener, the opportunity to connect with such a highly regarded concealed carry website is an exciting time for both brands.

“We are super excited to be recognized and partnered with Concealed Nation,” Wiener said. “It feels great knowing a product like our Cloak Tuck 3.0 has provided safety, comfort, and peace of mind to so many.”

Concealed Nation’s Brandon Curtis is also excited to offer customers a concealed carry holster.

“This partnership with Alien Gear Holsters to create these dual-branded holsters is something that we have been excited about for a while now,” Curtis said. “Paring these two companies for this project seems like a natural way to bring the brands closer together, and we hope to see positive feedback from both communities. We are happy to continue work with the great folks at Alien Gear Holsters, and are excited to promote responsible concealed carry together with these new holsters.”

Shot-Force Pro Brings Innovation to AR500 Targets

ShotForceTargets_8402Several members of the GunLink team have spent at least some portion of their lives in southern Ohio, so the area has a place in our hearts.  Although most of us have since spread throughout the country, we were happy to discover Nelsonville-based Shot-Force Pro while wandering the SHOT Show dungeon this past January.  It is always nice to run in to someone from “back home” when travelling.

In addition to catching up on Ohio news and being introduced to company founder Steve Davis and his team while visiting their booth in Las Vegas, we were also introduced to some of their innovative targets.  On a recent trip back to our old AO, we had the opportunity to stop by and visit the Shot Force facility and see where the magic happens.  While there, we also got to put rounds on just about every kind of target that they currently produce as well as getting a behind the scenes look at some of the new target systems that are still in the R&D phase.

After a lively discussion on guns and politics, we got to take a look at the Shot Force production area, including stacks upon stacks of hardened steel plates, the plasma cutting table that transforms them from generic plates into their various shapes, and finished products – clad in brightly colored powder coating – waiting to be shipped out.   Continue reading
