Firearms owners are always looking for ways to protect their valuables, yet have ready access to their guns.

The compartment is full length and can be configured to conceal quite a few different items.

GAOS 20 – FN 509 Compact MRD

Thursday, February 6th, 2020

A great thing about GAOS is that manufacturers display their wares and answer the buying public’s’ questions.

In this case, FN USA is showing off the new FN 509 Compact MRD.

Like it’s full and mid sized counterparts, it’s a 9mm, striker fired pistol with a flat faced trigger. The barrel is 3.7-inch barrel and comes with 12+1 capacity, but will accept other, larger 509 magazines. The pistol includes two different back straps to accommodate different fits.

Thursday, February 6th, 2020

A dream date with a dream gun.

I started going to GAOS a few years ago after talking to Drake at Magpul who told me it was a great way to meet a whole new group of Gun enthusiasts. He’s right!

Drake is seen here with a Ruger PC9 outfitted with the new Magpul Backpacker Stock and PMAG D-50 9mm 50 round drum.

2020 Great American Outdoor Show

Thursday, February 6th, 2020

It’s that time of year again kids!

We are already over halfway through the NRA’s Great American Outdoor Show in Harrisburg, PA. You’d think that it wouldn’t be packed smack dab in the middle of the week, but you’d be wrong. Thousands of outdoor enthusiasts, entire families are here in force. I drove over five hours to get here. If you’re in driving range, experience it, at least once.

GAOS 19 – Section 21 T-shirts from Rockwell Tactical

Friday, February 8th, 2019

Our friends at Rockwell Tactical are selling Section 21 T-shirts to commemorate the Pennsylvania Constitution’s commitment to the right to bear arms, raise awareness, and solicit donations to the fight for this precious right in Pittsburgh.

Article I, Section 21 of the Pennsylvania State Constitution states: “The right of the citizens to bear arms in defense of themselves and the State shall not be questioned.”

Many of Pennsylvania’s citizens, and politicians in Harrisburg, have no idea (or simply do not care) that they are violating the Constitution of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania by simply asking the question. Remind them of our inalienable right to bear arms and defend ourselves.

For each T-shirt sold, Rockwell Tactical will donate $5 to Firearms Industry Consulting Group, P.C., to support the legal challenges being prepared by Firearm Owners Against Crime and Allegheny County Sportsmen’s League in relation to the City of Pittsburgh’s unlawful anti-Second Amendment proposals.

If you can’t make it to the Great American Outdoor Show, get yours at www.rockwelltactical.com/allproducts/section-21-t-shirt.
