Sneak Peek – Grey Ghost Precision

Friday, December 30th, 2016

GGP will be formally releasing a new rifle at SHOT Show. We can’t tell you what it is, but the name rhymes with 6.5 Grey Ghost GRIM.

Here’s a look at it on the range recently with Scott Satterlee, a former SFAUC Instructor (now with CORE Shooting Solutions) who describes it thusly:

“The GGP 6.5 Creedmoor ran flawlessly all week. 650 rounds without cleaning – not a single stoppage or failure to feed/fire. Yesterday morning the shooter running the rifle [pictured] had a first round hit cold bore on 8 in. plate at 691 yds. As far as torture test and accuracy goes – that’s about as good as it gets. Rifle runs great.”

FirstSpear Friday Focus – Speed Bag

Friday, December 30th, 2016

On today’s Friday Focus, we’re going to update you on the FirstSpear Speed Bag. Unfortunately, they’re discontinuing it, but there are still some available.

At one end of the Speed Bag is a zippered mesh pouch that fits the FirstSpear Helmet Hut. This same compartment can also be used to separate wet/dirty clothing and equipment from other gear within the bag. An external zippered pocket on the opposite end is sized for rapid access of smaller essential items or fits a fully loaded FirstSpear Fight Strap.

Two full-length zippered compartments on each side of the bag are sized to fit short-barreled rifles, sub-guns, or a breaching shotgun. The main compartment of the Speed Bag is accessed by a full-length zipper and is configured to fit a complete set of body armor, equipped AGB and uniform. Over-sized nylon webbing handles can be used a hasty shoulder strap, a reinforced bottom panel, and a small organizer pocket on the outside are all standard. A square of loop pile lets you attach your FS Cell Tag to the outside making your Speed Bag quickly identifiable.

It has been moved to the non-stocking non-standard section on and available in Ranger Green and MultiCam only. They are offering it while supplies last, with FREE padded weapon inserts ($80 value). FirstSpear has a limited stock and when they are gone they are gone. Don’t miss this chance for a great price on a great piece of kit.
