HERA Arms CQR AR Stock And Forward Grip

Monday, October 31st, 2016

Coming to a Deux Ex sequel near you

This unique stock and foregrip combination has been making the rounds across the internet, and to be honest it’s a bit mall ninja-ish, but at the same time it also manages to be really damn cool. Like, I need to make a ‘for fun’ build out of these parts cool. Ghost In The Shell, Shadowrun, cyberpunk cool, if I may be so bold.

The two components are called the CQR Stock and CQR Front Grip, and are the creation of Germany-based HERA Arms, a company which specializes in manufacturing weapons and weapons accessories. Utah-based LAN World is the current importer of HERA Arms components into the USA, and supposedly they’ll be offering the CQR parts in the coming months. I, assuredly like many others, eagerly await their availability.


They’re also making a Commiefornia compliant version, so if you have to neuter your rifle, at least it can be done in relative style.

Major Tom Greer – “An American Warrior”

Monday, October 31st, 2016

You may have known him by his pen name, Dalton Fury. But in life, he was known as Tom Greer. Not long ago, we told you that Tom had terminal pancreatic cancer. I’m sorry to say that he recently passed away from cancer at age 52.

He wrote the book, “Killing Bin Ladin” about his time as an Army officer in Delta, and also created a series of fiction fearuring ex-Delta Operator Kolt Raynor. I think there was a lot of Tom in Kolt.

He was a great man, both in and out of uniform. He would often travel to Atlanta’s Hartsfield International airport near his home to give copies of his books to service members and that was the majority of my interaction with him. I sent him copies of his books to hand out. I supported his work via SSD, and exchanged notes. I’m very sorry to see him taken so young. He’s a man who still had a lot to offer the world.

He will be missed.

Initially, I didn’t want to post about his passing, not wanting it to be a spectacle. Even though he had written several nooks, he was not a public man and I’m not sure that anything I could say would properly honor the man. Then, his brother CSM Steve Greer, shared this video memorial to Tom, so my feelings changed on the subject. It’s solemn and I found it a very fitting tribute.

Rest In Peace
