RUSH72 – Ready for the Range

Tip: A tool kit is a must-have every time you head to the range. It doesn’t have to be much more than a set of allen wrenches, a small crescent wrench and a good multi-tool. Don’t forget the staples when you walk down to the line! I always use the longest staples I can find and prefer 9/16″ (14mm) length as they’ll go through stacked cardboard and paper targets.  – SGM (R) Kyle Lamb, Viking Tactics

Havoc 30 “Anywhere EDC”

Tactical Tips:
Consider common items that can easily be explained but can also double as a defensive tool like a roll of quarters, a padlock, or a small screwdriver. Tuna packs are a great source of protein and don’t take up any room, back them up with a pack of gum.

5.11 Ignitor Pack for Hunting

We worked with Robb Wiley of Non-Typical Outfitters in Alpine, WY for a recent trip and photo shoot in the Jackson, WY area.

Robb offers this advice:  A good attitude is the single most important thing that can make or break any hunt. Sometimes I see hunters that are so focused on the kill, that they forget to enjoy the hunt. We all hunt because it is our passion, we do it because it is fun, we need to focus on that.

John Wilson, CBL Tac Trainer and Adventurer: RUSH24

John Wilson, owner and primary instructor at CBL Tac offers this advice:

Test your gear every chance you get, then test it again. Better to know it doesn’t work when you have an easy out than when you have to rely on it for survival.

Keep a checklist of your gear, note the in-service dates and usage.

Greg Thompson, SOCP Instructor

Greg Thompson, 5.11 Ambassador and SOCP Instructor, shows his everyday go bag #loadout.
“I’ve been carrying a go bag for over 25 years. I used to use camera cases and Candace small tool bags. Wherever I go, I have it in a central location — primarily a vehicle. I often pull stuff out and carry it on my person depending on where I’m going and the need of the situation. Sometimes when traveling abroad I have to leave the handgun behind. I don’t always carry a small umbrella, but I normally always have an extra Glock mag 40.

My Go Bag for EDC — or as my wife calls it, my man purse.”

Officer “CH”

The All Hazards Backpack started as an idea that Officer CH had, based on real world experience from active shooter events, disaster response, and time spent in the military. Officer CH vetted the idea with fellow officers and response teams. “Everything is about adaptability and being able to fight from your back or treat casualties on the field instead of going back to the car. You can set it up to your individual preference or for the mission at hand.”
