Ironskull Fitness 62 Lbs Skullbell

Sunday, August 12th, 2012

For those not in the know, Ironskull Fitness is a company that sells custom skull-inspired kettlebells, 100% made in the USA. Their latest addition to their product line is the 62 lbs Skullbell. Unlike the other kettlebells available from Ironskull, the Skullbell is completely modeled after an actual human skull, giving it an irregular shape which makes it more appropriate for 2-handed swings than for cleans and snatches. The Skullbell also features a “Gunshot entry wound on front and exit wound on the back with handle exploding through skull”, a nice little design addition if I do say so myself.

‘Ghost Recon: Future Soldier’ – Press Range Day

Monday, April 16th, 2012

For the second day of the ‘Ghost Recon: Future Soldier’ press event, we were invited out to Trigger Time in Carthage, North Carolina. It was a chance for the journalists to check out and try out a few firearms (a few M4s, a couple of Glock 17s with Aimpoint T-1s, a Remington 870, an AK47 variant, an ACR, an FNP-45 Tactical, and a semi-auto PKM).

Thanks to Tactical Fanboy for attending this event. We know he had a great day despite the rain. And, thanks to Red Storm for putting this on.

CamoVision Goes Kloak

Friday, April 6th, 2012

JerryJack Outdoors has licensed Kloak Konsealment pattern camo for its “CamoVision” eyewear.

“With CamoVision adopting our KLOAK line of cryptic camouflage in its state-of-the-art eyewear, hunters can get closer than ever to total concealment when in the field,” said Steve Regan, President and CEO of Genesis Pattern Technologies. “Once again, the fact that CamoVision chose KLOAK for its unique technology is very exciting to Genesis.” (Kloak cammie patterns are based on mimicry patterning and ‘cryptic’ colorations found in the natural world. (Some of you may remember Kloak from SHOT.)

CamoVision uses a bonding pattern to add a camouflage pattern to the lenses. This makes you look cool and has the additional benefit (if looking cool isn’t enough for you) of masking your eye movement from whatever you’re hunting.

Not zombies, it should be noted. Zombies don’t respond to typical predator-prey dynamics, and won’t care about your eyes. Or hippies. They will be too stoned to care.

Lenses are impact resistant polycarbonate UV on nylon frames. They plan on having multiple patterns on styles for for men, women and children.

For more information, check out CamoVision; for more about Kloak, check their website.

Interested in Some Special Platatac Kit?

Friday, March 23rd, 2012

Platatac just posted a picture of a new rig on their Facebook wall. It’s a niche piece of kit but they’re wondering if anyone else would be interested in it. Go check it out, let ’em know what you think. Many people are unaware that the Australian company frequently builds small batches of specialized kit that never goes out on their commercial site. If they make just a few dozen it might cost as much as $400. If they manufacture over a hundred the price could be cut in half. Go check it out.

Tactical Fanboy – CES 2012 – G-Shock GB-6900

Saturday, January 14th, 2012

We sent Tactical Fanboy out to Las Vegas early this year to cover the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show. This article is on the upcoming G-Shock GB-6900. To see all of TF’s coverage visit

Casio’s latest offering in the G-Shock line of watches is the GB-6900. It’s the first in the line to use Bluetooth Low Energy Wireless Technology, which is really Newspeak for this thing will be studying your daily habits to better plan the eventual machine takeover. All joking aside, it’s a pretty useful bit of hardware.

It connects to most smartphones to automatically adjust and correct its own display time and includes an alert signal that notifies the user of incoming calls and messages. Any ring alerts and vibration can be stopped by tapping a button on the watch. Similarly, phone alarm and vibration functions can be activated with a button press if the phone is misplaced. The Bluetooth signal features a data transfer rate is abound 1 Mbps with a signal range of 2m and a 128-bit Advanced Encryption Standard.

As a watch, the GB-6900 isn’t too shabby either. It has five independent daily alarms, a stopwatch, countdown timer, and display options for 35 time zones in 100 cities, including Coordinated Universal Time and the option to enable Daylight Savings Time. Like other G-Shock models, it has a shock-resistant body and is rated for immersion up to 200 meters of water. A battery life of approx. 2 years is provided by a single CR2032 disk battery, assuming the communication function is used for only 12 hours per day. It’ll be available in Japan in March. The USA, and presumably everyone else, will get it by the end of the year.
