The 4 Best Jungle Boots on the Market – Reviews 2020 Photo by DVIDSHUB / CC BY There are many different kinds of outdoor boots available on the marketplace that are each designed for different purposes. The boots that you would use for hunting in the snowy mountains are not at all the same kind of boots that you would use for a desert hike, for example. All the same, some boots are produced that are designed strictly for jungle use. The original ‘jungle boots’ were actually combat boots made for jungle warfare in environments that were hot and humid (think Vietnam). In these kinds of conditions, your typical leather boots that you may use for the woods are simply not going to stand up well in the jungle conditions. It’s vitally important that you use specific jungle boots for trekking in the jungle because they are the only kinds of boots that permit enough ventilation and water drainage to keep your feet dry. Otherwise, your feet could become the victim of trench foot and similar diseases that not only impede your ability to walk through jungles and swamps but threaten your life as well. Here are 4 of the best jungle boots to ensure that this doesn’t happen to you (and we go into what you should look for when selecting the right trekking boots after the reviews): Under Armour Men’s UA Jungle Rat Boots Under Armour Men's Jungle Rat Military and Tactical Boot, Sage (385)/Sage, 14 Price: $134.99 Price as of 08/13/2020 17:53 PDT (more info) Product prices and availability are accurate as of the date/time indicated and are subject to change. Any price and availability information displayed on Amazon.com at the time of purchase will apply to the purchase of this product. A huge feature that your jungle boots must have is the ability to repel moisture and water. The Under Armour UA Jungle Rat Boots not only accomplish this, they do it without surrendering the breathability of the boot as well. Constructed out of both nylon and leather, this is a minimalist jungle boot ( see full specs ) with drainage vents on the side that ensure your feet will keep dry, in addition to a sock liner with anti-microbial properties to resist small bacteria from wrecking havoc on your feet. With a total height eight inches, these are among the best waterproof jungle boots you can buy Under Armour Boots #GoWhereYouDontBelong #IWILL Watch this video on YouTube

Pistol Fundamentals Simplified: How much accuracy do you really need?

Pistol Fundamentals Simplified: How much accuracy do you really need?

We have all had to learn how to shoot a pistol at one time or another whether it was through a civilian shooting class, the military, or some other setting. The one thing I am sure that we all learned about was the basic “pistol fundamentals” of marksmanship. The fundamentals are supposed to be a list of key factors that you must pay special attention to if you wish to make an accurate shot. Just to name the fundamentals you may have been taught, with a brief definition of their general meanings: Stance- Positioning your body in such a way that allows you to stabilize yourself during the firing process. Grip- Holding the pistol in such a way that allows you full control of the pistol. Sight alignment Lining up the front sight so that it is flush and centered in the rear sight notch. Sight picture- Placing the properly aligned sights at the point at which you wish the shot to impact. Trigger control- Manipulating the trigger to the rear with a gradual pressure so that it surprises you once the shot breaks Breathing control- Controlling your breathing so that the shot breaks at the end of the exhale Now if we look at this list, we may imagine ourselves following each of these perfectly. It seems so simple when we realize what each one of these fundamentals are. But those of us that have been shooting for a long time have found two things to be true. You are not always ABLE to follow every one of the fundamentals. You do not always NEED to follow every one of the fundamentals. Too often I hear people talking about how you need to always hit exactly where you intend to hit. This is important and is the hope, but the reality of the situation is you may have to accept near hits. Some people go as far as to trash the gun they are shooting if they fail to group well with it. I am sure we have all heard the term “combat accuracy” at some time or another. Basically, I define it as meaning that the shot was not really placed exactly where I wanted it to go, but it still impacted in an acceptable area. Is there anything wrong with these types of hits? Yes and no, depending on how you’re shooting and the situation. If you are on a static range and you have all the time in the world, you might as well use as many of the little fundamentals and slow fire methods at your disposal to make a hit. In the static position, you don’t need to accept a big miss. But if you are trying to shoot fast and still make a hit under stress, you are just gonna have to take what you can get. Most of the time if shooting fast or at a distance, you are not going to have the luxury of reconfirming that your sights are on and that you have the best grip before you jack the trigger to the rear. This is just the way it is. Let us look at the two fundamentals that will make or break a shot, no matter who is shooting. Of course sight picture and having your sights are important, but we are specifically discussing what you need to hit what your sights are on and therefore sight picture is not of concern. First thing to keep in mind is trigger control in the sense that you should be able to pull/squeeze/press the trigger as fast as you can without using other fingers in order to get leverage. Failure to do this is the actual culprit in missing from what I have seen. Concentrate on independently using your trigger finger in order to negate this issue. Once you are capable of doing this, you should be golden and your rate and method of trigger pull will not be an issue. Either way, manipulating the trigger in a way that does not disturb the sights is the ultimate goal. Second thing that is going to be important, even if only a little, is the grip. If you do not hold onto the pistol under the firing sequence, your anxiety may take over and send the shot off course from trying to get a last-minute hold of the weapon. Even if all you use is the thumb and middle finger to hold the pistol, it will easy your anxiety to keep it secure in those two fingers. All in all, we as human beings desire complete control of the situations that we are in. Though trigger control is the leading fundamental that dictates the success of our shots, it has a pattern of causing us to default to using our grip in order to establish better control of the pistol. So in this case, why not admit that the grip is also an important fundamental that can make or break the success of your trigger control? Other than those two fundamentals, we may find ourselves adding other fundamentals under stress in order to establish better control of the pistol. I will not tell you that it is unnecessary to learn all of the fundamentals because it absolutely is important. But I will say that we will rarely find ourselves adhering or even coming close to using every fundamental. It is on us to recognize this and accept this. Once you do that, you may find yourself being capable of shooting better and better with less practice. Spotter Up team member Dave Donchess on video.

CCW Safe was founded by a trio consisting of a lawyer (Kyle Sweet) and two retired police officers (Stan Campbell and Mike Darter). Mike has been involved in shootings, whereas Stan is a certified national self-defense instructor and has extensive knowledge of the subject. The national trial counsel of CCW, Don West also has a commendable career record, with notable involvement in the famous ‘George Zimmerman’ case as co-counsel. The company is not a " CCW insurance provider ’"officially, but technically a "legal service membership plan". The company covers your legal expenses, as well as assists you with finding an attorneys to defend your case. Unlike many other legal defense service providers, it also compensates you for your work damages and health while your case is on trial. The company is self-funded and relies on membership fees and its investments to cover its operational costs. This makes it immune to any legal obligations of an insurance company. CCW Safe has a myriad of features, which make it a very popular choice among firearm owners, the best of which is that it doesn’t place any cap on the legal expenditures on criminal defense cases. It also features a high amount of bail coverage. There are a few more notable features about the CCW Safe program, which we’ll elaborate on further in this article. CCW Safe Options CCW Safe has a multitude of membership plans, with varying degrees of protection for legal defense cases. These plans have been divided into permit and non-permit plans, which clearly indicates and explains which plan you should choose. Here’s the list: HR 218 Plan The HR 218 plan has been designed specifically for active or retired Law Enforcement Officers, who qualify for a LEOSO ( "Law Enforcement Officers" Safety Act). The plan provides unlimited coverage for civil, criminal, and administrative actions against self-defense incidents (off-duty only). The plan offers $1 million coverage for civil damages and up to $1 million in bail bonds. It also covers firearm replacement during the trial, so you may attain possession of your weapon. Your spouse and children (under age 18) are also covered at no additional cost, given that the self-defense incident happens inside your house. These family members will also be covered by a $250,000 bail bond. Source Other than these basic features, the plan also provides a $250/day work loss compensation (while on trial), ten counseling sessions (up to $4,000), and $3,000 compensation for home/crime-scene cleanup. The plan requires the applicant to submit proof of retirement or former agency ID to verify eligibility for this plan. Additionally, the member is only covered in areas where the possession of guns is not restricted. The plan costs $399/year for one member. There’s also a cheaper alternative to this known as the ‘protector plan’ for active/retired law enforcement officers with a CCW permit. It has $500,000 in bail coverage, and other add-ons for civil damage compensation, bail coverage upgrade, and spouse coverage. Defender Plan The Defender Plan has been designed for people with a valid concealed carry permit, against any legal action resulting from a self-defense incident. The member must have a valid resident or non-resident concealed carry permit (FOID cards not eligible) and can use any legal weapon in any legal-possession premises, to be covered. It also covers your spouse and children (under age 18) at home. Unless they are prohibited from using firearms. This plan covers all civil and criminal legal attorney’s fees upfront, along with all other trial costs, which also includes investigators and expert witness charges. The plan also provides a $500,000 bail bond coverage to the member, and firearm replacement during the trial. The member is also reimbursed for $250/day for work loss, up to ten sessions (up to $1,500) for a licensed counselor, and up to $3,000 for crime scene clean-up (if needed). The plan also covers any appeals and expungements, which is also an amazing benefit, given the cost and effort associated with it. The plan costs $179/year per member and is highly inexpensive compared to other CCW Safe plans. However, this difference does come at a cost. Firstly, the plan is only for valid CCW permit holders. Secondly, the plan doesn’t have any civil liability coverage (which can be added for $220) Ultimate Plan This is by far the best legal defense permit plan offered by CCW Safe. The plan covers all criminal and civil defense legal fees along with expert witnesses and investigators fees with no hourly or amount caps. Plus, a $1 million civil damage coverage for the primary member. The plan also covers your spouse for legal defense expenses, including a $1 million bond coverage for both. However, civil damage coverage for other members has to be bought separately. Source Both primary member and spouse must have a valid carry permit. All family members (under age 18) residing at the house of the primary member are also covered (with a $500k bond), provided they are inside the house and are not prohibited from using firearms. The plan pays $350/day work loss compensation, up to 40 sessions (up to $6,000) for a licensed psychological counselor, and $3,000 in home crime-scene cleanup. This plan comes with digital membership cards, so you don’t have to carry a physical card everywhere. It costs around $499 per year and is only available for an upfront annual payment, which may overrun your budget. Non-Permit Plans As the name suggests, non-permit plans have been made for people who don’t have a CCW permit, but still, want legal defense coverage for unexpected situations. There are two non-permit plans offers by CCW Safe, namely the Constitutional Carry Plan and the Home Defense Plan, both of which are priced at $299/year per member. They do provide additional add-ons for extra coverage and inclusions. The major difference between these two non-permit plans is that the "Constitutional Carry Plan" covers you both inside and outside your house, whereas, the "Home Defense Plan" is only valid for at-home self-defense incidents. These plans cover the legal and criminal defense expenses without any upper caps, along with expert witness and investigator fees. Plus, they also compensate the member with a $250/day for work loss, $1,500 for a licensed mental health counselor (up to ten sessions), and up to $3.000 for crime scene cleanup. Additionally, these plans cover the member and spouse (plus minors) for a bail amount of $250,000. Both these plans require you to pay upfront annual fees and are not available in monthly installments. You can also add civil damage and extra members for the plan upon checkout. These plans are great for non-permit holders who want to get the maximum protection against such incidents. What is the USCCA? USCCA is one of the most popular legal-defense for self-defense programs on the market. It stands for the United States Concealed Carry Association and was founded in 2003, by Tim Schmidt and Tonnie Schmidt. The company offers legal defense membership plans, along with training and education to its members for better evaluation of such situations. USCCA has an extensive list of features that it offers in its different program tiers. It provides comprehensive coverage to the member as well as their spouse (for an extra amount). USCCA provides its legal services in all 50 states of the U.S., however, the coverage is not available for purchase by residents of NY and WA. The plans of USCCA also cover civil damages, however, the amount is deducted from the overall maximum compensation value of your plan. The program also has a firearm theft/loss protection, but that is shared with the personal hardship coverage amount. You get CCW Reciprocity Map With Permit Expiration Reminders and CCW Alerts When Crossing State Lines with the USCCA member app. All the membership plans from USCCA have their own compensation slabs for work loss, hardship, and psychological support. They also let you choose an attorney of your choice for legal defense. Additionally, USCCA has one of the most comprehensive and valued education and training programs, when compared with other service providers. They also publish a magazine (eight editions a year) to educate their members about the latest legal updates and other relevant information. USCCA Options USCCA presents its prospective buyers with three membership plans. Each has a different maximum coverage amount and other perks. The plans are known as Gold, Platinum, and Elite. Let’s elaborate on them: Gold Membership This is the most basic membership plan one can opt for with USCCA. It offers you $500,000 in civil defense and damage protection, and $100,000 in criminal defense, bail bond funding and attorney retainer for criminal cases. Which adds up to a total of $600,000. The bail bond is capped at $5,000 (10% max of total amount). The plan grants you access to the education and training program, with somewhat limited access to lessons. However, you can still access the community forum for asking any questions. Source This membership plan costs you $22/month or $247 annually. The plan also includes the USCCA Legal Defense Foundation which deals with aspects like gun confiscation without due process and restoration of gun rights cases. You also get access to one-year of back issues online on their portal, so you may get some extra information about possible outcomes of such a case. The plan is good for people who like to get basic coverage for everyday carry and live in one of the most gun-friendly states. Platinum Membership This is the middle and most balanced tier of USCCA membership. The Platinum Plan provides you with total coverage of $1.15 million. This includes $1 million in civil defense and damage protection (civil damage will be paid with the amount that is left after civil defense fees), and $150,000 in criminal defense, bail bond funding, and attorney retainer. The bail bond is capped at $25,000 (10% max of total amount) Apart from the cover amount, situational awareness training (video) and free daily advanced show entry into the USCCA concealed carry expo are the only things that differentiate it from the gold membership plan. The plan includes the training and membership sessions and additional discount on tactical gear from member stores. This plan costs $30/month or $347 annually. Additionally, you get complete access to five years' online archive of back issues to help educate yourself better. Elite Membership This is the most expensive, and the most premium subscription plan USCCA has to offer. It provides a civil defense and damage coverage of $2 million. Apart from a $250,000 coverage for criminal defense, bail bond funding, and attorney retainer. The bail bond is capped at $50,000 (10% max. of the total amount) A member gains full online access to the lifetime archive of USCCA with detailed notes on back issues. Plus the membership also allows the user to participate in the interactive ‘ask an attorney’ monthly webinar. The plan opens up full features of the mobile app for members. Plus, it includes access to 70+ lifesaving digital guides and ebooks on the online portal for a more detailed education on related subjects. The online video training lessons include instructions on situational awareness and the use of deadly force in a self-defense incident. Plus access to a 10+ hours e-learning training systems. This plan also earns you a VIP concierge and treatment at the USCCA concealed carry expo. The plan is ideal for people who want a good amount of protection against legal self-defense incidents. The $2 million coverage is ample to cover costs in most extreme cases. Join USCCA Now CCW Safe vs. USCCA - Similarities and Differences Both CCW Safe and USSCA offer the same service to their users. However, there are still some differences in their plans, the type of cover they provide and other perks and benefits associated with each of these programs. Let’s check out their similarities and differences in detail. Note: The compensation values of these plans have been compared based upon the top membership program of each company. CCW Safe vs. USCCA Differences Defense Fees The first and foremost difference between CCW Safe and USCCA is the amount of coverage they provide for civil and criminal cases. Where USCCA has a maximum coverage of $2.2 million in the elite program, CCW Safe provides unlimited coverage for both civil and criminal defense attorney fees. This is a huge consideration. Civil Damage and Bail Cover USCCA provides a maximum bail bond coverage of $50,000 compared to a maximum of $100,000 offered by CCW Safe. The civil damage expenses in USCCA are shared with the defense limit, whereas CCW Safe provides $1 million in civil damages in the ultimate plan. Ongoing Attorney Access USCCA provides ongoing attorney access to the members whereas CCW doesn’t. This can be a setback in some cases. Source Coverage Area While both these plans cover their members in all states, USCCA is not available for purchase by residents of NY and WA, which is a drawback for people living in one of these states. Concealed Carry Permit USCCA doesn’t require a concealed carry permit for the member. It covers the members in all conditions where the use of a firearm was legal.  CCW has separate plans for CC and non-CC permit users. Monthly Plans CCW does show monthly price for many of its plans, however, they require you to commit for at least a year’s payment. Whereas USCCA offers monthly plans, which can be canceled at any time, with a 365-day money-back guarantee. Attorney USCCA lets you choose your own attorney if you want. Whereas CCW Safe chooses an attorney for you from their network. Compensation and Clean up CCW Safe provides $350/day work loss compensation, up to 40 sessions (up to $6,000) for a licensed psychological counselor, and $3,000 in home crime-scene cleanup. USCCA used to provide these benefits but has since discontinued them. CCW Safe vs. USCCA Similarities Emergency Hotline Both these companies have an emergency hotline which is accessible 24/7/365. Their customer support is quite efficient and supportive. Upfront Payment This is a great feature offered by both companies. While undergoing a case, all your expenses are paid upfront, so you don’t have to empty your bank account or get a loan. Additionally, both companies do not require you to pay back the money spent on the case if you are found guilty, which is an amazing benefit, compared to several other services. Lower Pricing Tiers Both USCCA and CCW Safe have different pricing tiers and plans to suit the needs of every budget. You can also have extra coverage for your spouse at a minimal extra cost. Both companies also offer several monthly payment options. Cost ($499 and $497) The cost of both these services is almost the same, give or take a cup of coffee. The USCCA Elite membership costs $497 per year, whereas CCW Safe’s Ultimate Plan costs $499 per year upfront. Firearm Loss/Theft Program You get a firearm loss/theft program inclusive in all the plans of both USCCA and CCW Safe. However, the USCCA program is shared with the personal hardship coverage, where CCW Safe has a full-fledged firearm replacement program. Top Pick Between CCW Safe vs. USCCA That is a very, very hard question. Considering the fact that the prices of both these programs are comparable. The simple answer to this question is - Your Discretion. Where CCW Safe provides unlimited coverage compared to a max of $2.2 million by USCCA, the latter has an extensive education and training program, which is the best in the industry. Plus, the regular magazines hitting your mailbox every 50 days keeps you updated and reminded that you have self-defense coverage. On the other hand, CCW Safe has $1 million in civil damages, whereas USCCA shares it with the civil defense limit. Furthermore, USCCA allows you to choose your attorney and has a better daily compensation program than CCW Safe. Join USCCA Now If you live in WA or NY, USCCA is definitely not for you. Additionally, if you are more concerned about the coverage amount, CCW Safe will be the best choice for you. Conclusion Both these programs have their own advantages and disadvantages. Where USCCA has a more extensive library of educational and training content, along with a prompt customer support service, CCW Safe covers you for any civil or criminal expenses without a cap. Use your own discretion, requirements, and preferences before choosing either of these programs.

In his just-released book, Greatest Handguns of the World, Volume 2 , author Massad Ayoob includes the Thompson-Center Contender as one of the great firearms that made a difference in the handgunning world. At the end of the chapter, he makes a strong case for collecting Contenders and identifies “four eminently collectible variations of the Contender.” Summarized as follows from the book: 1.

There’s damn few of them around, and if you can find one, for heaven’s sake, rathole it away somewhere.” 2. The Eagle Contender “Somewhere around serial 1638, a handful of Contender pistols were made with an experimental engraving pattern that replaced the second puma on the right side of the frame with a defiant-looking eagle. Up until then, the only critter on the Contender was the puma, the same animal they named their first scope after. According to Warren Center, only four to six eagle-sided Contenders were produced. A collector, however, assures us it’s closer to twenty-five.”

Best Pistol Sights for Old Eyes (2020 Review for Visually Impaired Shooters)

As we get older, things start to change. Of course, one of those changes is in our vision. When our "old eyes" get the best of us, we have a hard time seeing what may be far away or close by. When eyesight is not the best, it is more difficult for older people to make the determination of whether or not they have a good, clear shot of their target during target practice. Today, we'll take a look the best pistol sights that older people can use, even when their eyesight doesn't hold up as well anymore. At a Glance: Our Top Picks for Pistol Sights for Old Eyes OUR TOP PICK: Trijicon Night Sight Sets for Glock Pistols Truglo Tfx Pro Tritium &; Fiber-Optic Xtreme Handgun Sight Tritium Handgun Glow-in-the-Dark Night Sights for Glock Pistols BEST BUDGET OPTION: Ameriglo Pro-IDOT For Glock 17/19 Orange Burris Fastfire III with Picatinny Mount Comparison of the Best Pistol Sights for Old Eyes IMAGE PRODUCT Our Top Pick "Trijicon Night Sight" Sets for Glock Pistols Fits Most Glock Models Rear-Sights to Reduce Glare and Enhance Target Acquisition Made With Cast Aluminum Alloy for Lightweight Application and Superior Durability View Latest PriceRead Customer Reviews Truglo Tfx "Pro Tritium &" ; Fiber-Optic "Xtreme Handgun Sight" Provides Excellent Visibility in Any Light Condition, Both Indoors and Outdoors Sights Made from Swiss-Made Tritium for Maximum Brightness Focus-Lock on Front Sight for Speed and Accuracy "View Latest Price" → "Read Customer Reviews" "Tritium Handgun Glow" -in-the- "Dark Night Sights" for Glock Pistols CNC-Machined Steel to Protect the Sight From Damages that Can Be Done While Cleaning Your Gun or Outdoors in Bad Weather Designed to Not Snag on Your Holster or Clothing Fits Perfectly With "Most Glock Models" View Latest PriceRead Customer Reviews Best Budget Option Ameriglo Pro-IDOT For Glock 17/19 Orange Orange Ring Used for Easier Aim and Accuracy Both Front and Rear Sights Are Equipped With Green Tritium Lamps Front Sight Designed for Easy Target Acquisition While it Retains Lumination From Rear Lamps View Latest PriceRead Customer Reviews Burris Fastfire III with Picatinny Mount Made From 100% Other Fibers Tool-Free Windage and Elevation Adjustment Power Button for Manual or Automatic Brightness Adjustment View Latest PriceRead Customer Reviews How To Choose A Sight When You Have Poor Vision In order to choose which pistol sight is best for you and your eyes, you’ll need to consider a few factors. It can take an important feature or two to help you make that final determination in choosing a sight. Here are a few factors to consider while you are looking for a sight: Sight Visibility​ Most sights have what is known as tritium. This gives your sights that glow factor. Typically, the sights will be green. The rear sights will be the same color (like green) while the front sight may be a different color like red or orange. Source If the front sight is the same color, there may be a ring that will aid in the distinction between the front sight and the back sights. With poor eyesight, sights of the same color may often confuse the user without a proper guide. Durability Having a durable sight is important. A pistol like a Glock has the ability to recoil. If a sight is durable enough, it can withstand recoil for a long time regardless of how many times you use it. Installation​ Most pistols come with factory-installed iron sights. These are no good for users who have poor eyesight. You'll need to find a sight that can be easy to install in as little time possible. However, some may be professionally installed for a fee. If you are not willing to shell out any extra money for this service, find a sight that is easy to install. Especially one that can be installed in as little as five to ten minutes. Types of Sights to Aid Eyesight There are three types of pistol sights that may aid those with bad eyesight. They are as follows: High Visibility Iron Sights Of course, iron sights are factory made . But with a little creativity, you can make them highly visible. One way to do this is by painting the sights. More specifically, using colored paint or nail polish will do the trick. In the event that you decide to paint your sights, use a bright color that you don't often find in nature (i.e.--Orange or bright green). Source Laser Sights Once upon a time, these types of sights were considered to be a gimmick. But over the years, people have begun to take them quite seriously. They are definitely helpful when it comes to target shooting, but it may take a little bit of patience and training in order to get your eyes to adapt to the laser sight a little bit. These lasers are visible enough for those with poor eyesight to see. Once you know exactly where your sight is, you'll be able to use it as much as you please. Red Dot Sights Red dot sights are proven to be faster and more accurate than the other two types. So the red dot sights on your pistol may be a godsend for those with failing eyesight. In order to install these types of sights, you’ll need to have the slide milled. This way, it will be at the proper high to easily attach the sight to your gun. Quick Take - The "Best Pistol Sights" For Old Eyes These are our top recommendations: Trijicon Night Sight Sets Truglo Tfx Pro Tritium &; Fiber-Optic Xtreme Tritium Handgun Glow-in-the-Dark Night Sight​ Review of the Best Pistol Sights For Old Eyes Time to move onto the part that really matters -- the review. Let's get started! 1.

It situates one light in the front scope while the other two dots are situated on the rear frame. This will aid you in bettering your aim, even when your eyesight doesn’t do you any favors. The Trijicon is made from cast aluminum alloy and provides excellent durability and maximum sight protection. Just because it's lightweight, doesn't make it fragile or flimsy. The front sight is an orange dot that is visible regardless of how light or dark it is outside. So it's perfect for use during the day or night. The two dots that are mounted on the rear frame are green dots that are also visible in any light condition. This sight is designed to give you the best aim. At the same time, you don't have to waste your time wondering if it's going to be an accurate shot. Just line them up and take the shot. This sight is perfect for most Glock models and will sustain a lot of recoil. If you want a good sight for those close to medium-range shots, the Trijicon Night Sight might be what you want. Trijicon is typically the brand trusted by most of America’s law enforcement officers and branches of our military. Their sights are known for their durability and are backed by a lifetime warranty if anything goes wrong with their sights. Bottom Line What more can you ask for in a sight? Highly durable. Bright enough for you to get a good aim and so versatile, it can fit any Glock model. If you have a Glock that you don’t want to give up using due to bad eyesight, then you’ll probably need a sight like the Trijicon so you can continue using it. 2. Truglo Tfx Pro Tritium &; Fiber-Optic Xtreme Sight CHECK LATEST PRICE Pros The Orange Ring is an Excellent Addition Considering That the Sights Are All the Same Green Color Steel Housing Keeps the Precipitation Out and Protects the Sights While You are Able to Clean Your Gun Despite Some Reviewers Saying That These Sights Need to Be Installed Professionally, They Are Not Really That Difficult to Install Yourself Cons Sights May Be a Little Sharp and May Need to Be Sanded Down a Bit "The Orange Ring" is Not Made From Tritium, so the Visibility May Be Lacking in Some Lighting Conditions "One Reviewer Complained" About the Point of Impact Being Two to Three Inches Lower Than Intended at Close Range Next up is the Truglo TFX Pro. If you want a double whammy of a night-time capability plus an added bonus of daytime fiber-optics, the Truglo is the sight for you. Some fiber optics in regular sights tend to fall apart. And in turn, your aim will be quite off. The TFX Pro won’t do that. That’s because the sights are encased in CNC steel and have an additional orange ring added on the front sight to make sure that you are able to distinguish the front sight from the rear since they all happen to be the same color. The steel casing is designed to protect the sights from damage from cleaning solvents and weather conditions. Compared to factory sights, the TFX Pro is much easier to see. Once installed, you’ll love how it will stand out. The orange ring on the front sight is very helpful, especially for older gun owners who have a hard time distinguishing the front sight from the rear. The sights tend to work well, especially in a medium-light, indoor setting (i.e.--indoor shooting range). Factory sights will never hold up when it comes to poor eyesight. If you want a sight that is a step up from that, consider the Truglo TFX Pro. Bottom Line: While the orange ring may not be as bright as the sights themselves, it’s a very helpful tool to rely on when you have a sight like this. It may need to be a little brighter, but it can still be considered decent enough for older users. If you want a good sight for your pistol that stands head and shoulders over factory installed sights, the TruGlo TFX Pro may be your sight. 3. Tritium Handgun Glow-in-the-Dark Night Sights CHECK LATEST PRICE Pros Very Easy to Install in as Little as Ten Minutes Sights Glow Even in Complete Brightness or Darkness Some Reviewers Have Said "That These Sights" Are Better When Compared to Brands Like Trijicon Cons The Front Sight Does Not Glow in the Dark One Reviewer Says the Impact Tends to Stray Slightly to the Left Some Reviewers Wish That the Front Sight Was a Little Bigger in Size These sites are also excellent for most Glock pistols. The sights change color according to light conditions. During the day, the sights will turn into a white color. At night, they will be a glowing green. The sights are encased in CNC steel and are protected from damage that can be made by oils, chemicals, cleaning solvents, and even the weather. The sight is guaranteed to be snag resistant, so it will fit in most holsters and won't get caught in your clothes. The sight is easy to install and can be done in as little as ten minutes. If you think this sight needs batteries for it to glow in the dark, think again. Even when exposed to enough light, your sights won’t need batteries. Nor does it need to be charged to ensure that your sight achieves maximum brightness regardless of light conditions. Bottom Line It’s always convenient when a sight glows in the dark. While you may not be able to see anything in pitch black darkness, this sight will come in handy even when there is a slight enough amount of light that will allow you to see a moving target. Since it lights up pretty brightly, it can work well with users with poor eyesight. 4. Ameriglo Pro-IDOT CHECK LATEST PRICE Pros Super Easy to Install if You Have the Right Amount of Tools Orange Ring Lives Up to its Purpose in Quick Target Acquisition Two-Dot Vertical Setup is Much Simpler Than a Standard Three Dot Set Up Cons Rear Sights May Be a Little Sharp, So Sand if Necessary One Reviewer Complained That the Warranty is Not Valid if Purchased on Amazon One User Had to Do Some Minimal Sanding Before Installing. This May Have Been Due to a Faulty Screw The Ameriglo Pro is a sight that is designed for the Glock 17 and 19 models. The first thing that stands out is that the orange circle that encompasses the front sight. It allows for easier adjustment and a great outline for even better accuracy. Both the front and rear sights use a green dot. Once you have a green line along the sight, just pull the trigger. To eliminate glare, the sight comes with a ⅙” rear notch that extends to the end of the slide. This sight was designed with the visually impaired in mind. And it’s all thanks to the tritium light that aids them in making sure their aim is straight and on-point with every shot.

Burris Fastfire III CHECK LATEST PRICE Pros Batteries Are Included Versatile, Is An Excellent Sight for a Handgun, Rifle, or Shotgun Red Sight Performs Much Better Than Iron Sights, Especially for Those With Bad Eyesight Cons May Not Handle the Recoil of Some Shotguns The Dot May Appear Distorted or Blurry for Those With Some Eye Conditions Like Astigmatism Battery Life is Said to Be Around 11,000 Hours, Though Some Reviewers Claimed That it’s Shorter Than That Our final sight for review is the Burris Fastfire III. This is the only sight out of this list that is the best fitting for a rifle. However, the sight can also be compatible with any shotgun or handgun as well. The scope comes with a tool-free windage and elevation adjustment. This is perfect for those with bad eyesight since they may not be able to read anything on a parallax or turret of a regular scope. For immediate speed and accuracy, the Fastfire III comes equipped with a red dot that will help you find the target quicker. The 8 MOA-sized sight is perfect for shorter distances, while the 3 MOA is used for rifles or looking for a more precise aiming point. The battery is located at the top of the sight. If the battery runs low, you will be notified by the low battery indicator. This sight also comes equipped with a power button that will allow you to adjust between three levels of brightness. This also includes an auto-brightness setting. Bottom Line This sight is good regardless of whatever gun you use. And the red dot does help, even if you have bad eyesight. Another thing that stands out is that you don’t need to make any adjustments for windage and elevation. Even with bad eyes, it would be hard to see what settings you need to have in order for the shot to look perfect. Of course, we’re talking about a traditional scope. The FastFire takes the guesswork out of that. If you want a sight that goes well with any gun and is convenient for your eyesight, go with the FastFire III. Conclusion Finding a pistol sight for your old eyes doesn’t have to be a challenge. Before making a choice, consider your personal needs and factors that may lead to your final decision. Whether you are target hunting or using it for home defense, you need a sight that can get the job done, even when your eyes are not clear enough for an iron sight.

6 Best Armorers Wrenches For Your Gun Builds

Trending: Best Places to Buy Ammo Online and [Buyer's Guide] 7 Best AR-15s Whether building ARs, taking them apart, or swapping out buffer chances are you’ll need an armorer’s wrench . Just like everything else dealing with ARs, there are about 100 different options out there. These tools often get looked over as most people buy pre-assembled ARs, but many people find themselves in situations where they need one. Technically, this is one option… In general, it’s a good idea to have one. The multi-tool wrenches offer quite a lot in a small package. But if you find yourself constantly using one, you may be better suited to buying purpose driven tools. Armorer’s wrenches, also called AR-15 wrenches, can vary in price quite a bit. What separates these wrenches from each other is the amount of tools/features they have and the build quality. Some of the cheaper choices can function perfectly fine for simpler tasks, but they may lack the options or strength that you need. If your safe looks like this, you might want some dedicated tools We’ll be taking a look at a few popular wrenches and detail the highs and lows of each. The tools covered are multi-tools. However, companies do make standalone buffer and barrel tools. At a minimum, the covered tools will have a barrel nut tool, flash hider slot, and castle nut wrench. And really – these are the main things you’ll need an AR-15 wrench for. Best Armorer’s Wrench 1. Real Avid AR-15 Armorer’s Master Wrench If you need a wrench that can almost replace a toolbox, this is the wrench for you. Real Avid is offering a lot of outstanding tools for AR-15 builders and their wrench is one of our favorites. Best Armorer's Multi-Tool Real Avid AR-15 Armorer's Master Wrench 70 at Primary Arms Prices accurate at time of writing View Details 70 at Primary Arms Compare prices (2 found) Primary Arms (See Price) Optics Planet (See Price) Prices accurate at time of writing This covers everything from most barrel nuts (free-float and mil-spec), the castle nut, flash hider/many muzzle brakes, and even allows you to attach a torque wrench! And if that wasn’t enough – you’ll also find a hammer built in with removable hammer heads. Brass, nylon, and rubber hammer heads screw into the handle of the wrench. Note that I said that they screw into the handle so there is no chance of them flying across the room while using the wrench or hammer. However, the Real Avid is on the heavy side. While this is nice for using it as a hammer, it can be a little cumbersome when using it as a wrench. What’s your take on the Real Avid wrench? Readers' Ratings 4.20/5 (135) Your Rating? 2. NcStar AR15/M16 Combo Wrench Gen 2 I know what you’re thinking, “NcStar? Isn’t that an airsoft company?” Yes and no. They do make a lot of cheap products, but some are worth the money. Their AR wrenches are some of these products. They’ve made three generations, but this is about the first two. The second seems far more robust. NcSTAR AR Combo Armorer's Wrench Gen 2 25 at Primary Arms Prices accurate at time of writing View Details 25 at Primary Arms Compare prices (2 found) Primary Arms (See Price) Optics Planet (See Price) Prices accurate at time of writing While they may not be top-tier in terms of quality, they work. Think of it like buying a tool from Harbor Freight. It’ll get the job done, but don’t expect heavy lifting—this is definitely not for someone building ARs as a living. They’re capable of removing your barrel nuts, but some people have said that the teeth aren’t the strongest. So keep this in mind while torquing down a new barrel as the wrench may break or damage your AR. They both feature spanners, a castle nut wrench, a 3/4” and 5/8” muzzle device wrench, and can be used with torque wrenches. NcStar also made sure to label these tools. Overall, the NcStar options seem like a good choice for occasional or one-time use. Do keep in mind that some people have had issues with the build quality. 3. Wheeler Delta Multi Wrench A middle of the road option, the Wheeler Delta offers the standard basic tools, but also includes a bit driver and various attachments. There is an option to buy the Delta with a torque wrench, but it does cost a bit more. Wheeler Delta Series AR Combo Tool 40 at Primary Arms Prices accurate at time of writing View Details 40 at Primary Arms Compare prices (3 found) Primary Arms (See Price) Optics Planet (See Price) Cabelas (See Price) Prices accurate at time of writing Wheeler’s entry into the market does come with plenty of criticism. Such as, the barrel nut pins are reported to either break or damage the gun. This stems from the Delta only having two pins. Others have criticized the Delta for being out of spec for some of the wrenches and included bits. While the Delta’s reviews are all over the place, keep in mind its cost versus the competitors. Approach it with caution. 4. Tapco Armorer’s Wrench Again, you’re probably going, “First NcStar, now Tapco?” Can’t blame you, after all their furniture is the bane of AK and Mosin purists everywhere. However, the "Tapco Armorer’s Wrench" seems to be quite well liked across the board. Tapco Armorer's Tool 43 at Brownells Prices accurate at time of writing View Details 43 at Brownells Compare prices (2 found) Brownells (See Price) Primary Arms (See Price) Prices accurate at time of writing Tapco took the time to clearly label each tool on their entry to the market. Its feature set is very similar to that of the NcStar wrenches, but it does seem better received by the AR community. Some users have noted that it may not work with all ARs and there have been reports of the barrel pins shearing off as well. Despite this, Tapco’s entry appears to be a solid choice. 5. Brownells AR-15 Armorer’s Wrench Over the past decade, Brownells has been making waves in the AR community by introducing their own AR-15s and M16 style clones. It comes as no surprise that they would have their own line of tools—and the wrench is made in America. Brownells AR-15 Armorer's Wrench 40 at Brownells Prices accurate at time of writing View Details 40 at Brownells Prices accurate at time of writing Unlike many other wrenches, the Brownells wrench uses four teeth to remove a castle nut. This allows for a better grip when removing or replacing the nut. When designing the wrench, Brownells made sure to make this a heavier duty tool—you can tell from just looking at it. Reception towards this choice seems more positive across the board, but the reviews Brownells.com are mixed. All in all it seems like a safe choice. 6. Magpul Armorer’s Wrench Let’s be real, this article wouldn’t be complete without at least mentioning Magpul’s wrench. While this wrench may not have as many tools as other options, it more than makes up for it in build quality. Heck, it’s made in America as well. Best Armorer's Wrench Magpul AR-15 Armorer’s Wrench 76 at Rainier Arms Prices accurate at time of writing View Details 76 at Rainier Arms Compare prices (2 found) Rainier Arms (See Price) Brownells (See Price) Prices accurate at time of writing Magpul’s Armorer Wrench is built to last—they even added two flat sections to be used as a hammer. During my research, this was the most commonly recommended wrench that I could find. Going back to the build, Magpul made this wrench look like a normal wrench and gave it the heft to back it up. Do keep in mind that these do not work with every brand of barrel. Closing Thoughts There are a lot more tools out there than what we briefly went over, but I just wanted to talk about the most common. Like I mentioned before, if you think you’ll be doing a lot of work on ARs you may want to pick up a standalone barrel tool and a standalone castle nut wrench. Also, it would be in your best interest if to make sure that the wrench you buy will work with your specific gun. What wrench do you run? Let us know in the comments!
