Blackfire Heavy-Duty Multi-Tool – Review

The Blackfire Heavy Duty Multitool is a stout multitool that should last you for years to come. U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- I am by no means maintenance inclined BUT, besides the fact that you have to learn some skills due to the high cost of paying someone else to do your work, there’s also the fact that always being outdoors and in the backcountry, you have to learn some maintenance skills or you’re going to be doing a lot of walking and hitchhiking! Over the years I’ve built up a few tools bu...

CHARD Pro-Former Electric Jerky Gun, Time to Make the Jerky!

CHARD Pro-Former Electric Jerky Gun, Time to Make the Jerky! Idaho – -(AmmoLand.com)- Now and then I test a product and go wow! This is cool. That was my words when I tested out the CHARD Pro-Former Electric Jerky Gun. It is the coolest invention since sliced bread. I’ve made my fair share of jerky and eaten more than my fair share so let me explain why I think that it is so cool. Making jerky the traditional way is time-consuming. You have to take your time slicing it and making sure that i...

Vortex Optics Summit Carbon II Tripod Kit – Review

The Vortex Summit Carbon II Tripod is a nice, stout little tripod. U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- I recently tested and wrote a Product Review on the Vortex Ridgeview Carbon Fiber Tripod. This time I’m writing a Product Review on the Vortex Optics Summit Carbon II Tripod. It is very similar to the aforementioned tripod. The Ridgeview is 73.8” tall and weighs 3-lbs. The Summit only raises up to 53.3” and weighs in at 2.5 lbs. So, if you’re hunting in the mountains and reducing weight is crucial, the...

ALPS Mountaineering Baja Day Backpack 40L – Review

The Alps Mountaineering Baja 40 is a lightweight medium-sized pack. U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- For some reason right when I picked up the ALPS Mountaineering Baja 40 Backpack, I liked it. Maybe because it is simple and not overdesigned. On some packs, I want a lot of compartments but for some adventures, I just want one big compartment with a few zippered pouches. Here’s why I say this. When I’m working shows like the SHOT, DSC, SCI Idaho Sports Show, etc. Companies are giving me t-shirts, caps...

5.11 Shella Pant When Carrying My .357 Mag. On My Belt In Bear Country

I think your woman would love a pair of 5.11 Stella pants. Surprise her with a pair. Idaho – -(AmmoLand.com)- Now and then I like to review women’s gear so the women in the reading public don’t get bored with my product reviews. Well, actually I don’t review women’s products as that would be creepy!? I have my wife or daughter(s) review women’s products and let me know how they work out. They’re active outdoorswomen. My wife fishes, hunts, and shoots with me, and my daughter shoots, fishes, a...

Alps Mountaineering Dash Chair Field Review

Alps Mountaineering Dash Chair Field Review Idaho – -(AmmoLand.com)- I’m going to do something different than I’ve ever done before on a Product Review. I got a product to test for one adventure and after checking it out I’m writing up a Product Review recommending it for a totally different use. I had no idea in the beginning that it could be used for this dual purpose. Since I started out testing the Alps Mountaineering Dash Chair for backpacking and ended up recommending using it for a di...

5.11 Ridge Pants, Lightweight Tactical Pants – Review

The 5.11 Ridge Pants are some nice lightweight tactical pants that you’ll love for your warmer outdoor activities. U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- I guess we all go through a progression as we mature/learn/gain experience. For years I always wore blue jeans on my outdoor adventures. Yes, blue jeans are tough and can hold up to wipeouts, scrapes and are good for riding horses. But the modern tactical pants, for instance, the 5.11 Ridge Pants that I just got are a lot better and more versatile for our...

5.11 RUSH24 2.0 MULTICAM BACKPACK 37L – Review

The 5.11 RUSH24 2.0 MULTICAM BACKPACK 37L will carry almost everything you need up to and including the Proverbial kitchen sink! U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- I just got a 5.11 RUSH24 2.0 MULTICAM BACKPACK 37L and it is the coolest backpack that I’ve ever seen. For the first couple of days, every time I looked at it, I found more features. I’m almost nervous to write a Product Review on it. If 5.11 sees it they’ll probably call and blast me for missing 10-20 features. 5.11 RUSH24 2.0 MULTICAM BAC...

The Knife Lover’s Wish List For 2021

The Knife Lover’s Wish List For 2021, The irrational mind might think that I’m trying to make a statement about what I think about the mask. Idaho – -(AmmoLand.com)- I wrote for Bass Pro Shop for 3 ½ years. The first year. I thought it’d be fun to write a WishList for the Outdoorsman. They said no, we want one for the hunter, the fisherman, camper, backpacker, and boat owner!? Since I write a lot of Knife Reviews for AmmoLand News I thought it’d be fun to write a Wish-List for the Knife Lover...

Kryptek Sonora Hooded Shirt – Gear Review

I love the KRYPTEK Sonora Hooded Shirts. At daybreak you can wear it as a base layer to stay warm then when it warms up you can pull off your outer layers and still be camouflaged. U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- For some reason, the Kryptek Sonora Hooded Shirt caught my eye and I thought I ought to test them out. I grabbed the Transitional and the Altitude color patterns. Both patterns are great but I think for most of my hunting I’m going to favor the Transitional pattern. Kryptek Sonora Hooded S...

Burris 4.5-14x 42mm Droptine Riflescope – Review

The Burris 4.5-14x 42mm Droptine Scope is a nice economical big game scope but it also works fine on an airgun. U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- I recently was testing a Umarex .22 cal. Origin airgun. I haven’t used a Burris since I left Colorado 22 years ago, so I thought I’d try a Burris scope on it. Of course when I’m hunting with a .22 cal. airgun I’m hunting small game that has a small kill zone. Due to this, I like a 4.5-14x scope. After checking out the Burris line-up I noticed that they had a...

Ben’s Tick Repellent 6 oz. Eco-Spray – Review

Ben’s Tick Repellent is endorsed by Teddy, the world-famous show dog (Of course Teddy can be bought off by a cheap steak). U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- Up until a few years ago I never gave much thought to ticks. Not that I liked them but they were just part of being in the outdoors. Some years were worse than others. I remember my dad telling us the story of a Boy Scout camping trip he’d been on. That night they were all setting around the campfire telling how many ticks they’d picked off. If I ...

Swab-Its Firearm Cleaning Kits – Review

SWAB-ITS has brought the gun-patch industry into the 21st Century. U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- I met Cathy Desorcy at SHOT I can’t remember how many years ago. I liked her sincerity and belief in her products right off the bat. At the time, SWAB-ITS was an outside company getting into the outdoor world. They made swabs for the medical field and high tech world. Of course, there were a few hunters in the company that saw how they could cross link over into the outdoor world and before you knew it...

5.11 Tactical Covert Vest for Concealed Carry – Review

If you're looking for a vest to cover your concealed weapon(s) then you need to check out the 5.11 Covert Vest. In this picture, I've got five pistols on me. U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- I guess like everyone else, I’m always on the lookout for methods to keep my weapons concealed which is what prompted me to consider ordering the 5.11 Covert Vest. At first glance I thought it was a straight cut bland-looking vest but which would suffice for the purpose that it was designed for. It is advertised ...

Lucid Optics SC9 Compact Spotting Scope 9-29×56 – Review

Buddy Mark Green and I were both impressed with the crispness and clarity of the Lucid Optics SC9 Compact 9-29×56 Spotting Scope. U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- Scrambling up and down mountains hunting is tough duty. On a good elk hunt, I can hardly walk by the 3rd day due to being so sore. So due to this, I try to limit the wt. & gear that I pack. I carry a set of 10×42 binocs for optics. But there are times that you have to carry a spotting scope. For instance when doing a sheep hunt, or looking ...

5.11 Tactical ABR PRO Pant and Why I Love Rip-Stop Fabric

5.11 Tactical ABR PRO Pant Idaho – -(AmmoLand.com)- I’ve noticed over time that sportsmen are observant. Here’s what I mean by that. They notice what works well in other factions of their lives and adapt it to their outdoor world. Or maybe they just happen to notice gear used in another field that would work in their outdoor world. All you have to do is to think about it for a second and you’ll realize that what I’m saying is true. To my understanding some of the employees at Swab-Its! were h...

Hobie Sunglasses, SNOOK and El Matador Fishing Sunglasses – Review

You can see how the side shields on the Hobie El Matador model protects Kate Welch's peripheral vision from the sun. Jeff Schneider is wearing the Hobie Snook sunglasses which are also great fishing glasses. Ok, let me throw out one disclaimer right off. I’ve never been a pacesetter in clothing. I just don’t care. But as I get older, I’m slowly changing. Why not be more presentable and also, I somewhat had to, due to all of the seminars & speaking engagements that I do. Plus, my wife is cons...

Aquimira Frontier Pro Water Filter, Perfect Gift for Outdoorsman or Prepper

If you're a backcountry outdoorsman or a prepper, you're going to love the Aquimira Frontier Pro Water Filter. U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- In the old days when backpacking you had to boil your water or carry water pumps and a storage jug and a bottle to carry water with you. Or if elk hunting you had to carry a 2-liter bottle of water. When hunting, fishing or hiking in the mountains you suck down a lot of water. The climate is dry so while breathing you lose moisture. Plus, just the extreme hik...

TALON SNAP Cleaning System, Universal Kit for Cleaning Pistols

The Talon Snap Cleaning Kit is a great little compact all-inclusive kit for cleaning your pistols. U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- I’ve dealt with Talon Grips for years. I love their stick-on grips which are basically stick-on granulated wraps that enhance your ability to maintain a firm grasp on your firearms in wet, slippery tense situations. They are ingenious and yet simple and functional. So, when they asked me to be one of 10 writers to test/evaluate their new Talon Snap Cleaning Kit I said su...

JSB Match Diabolo Exact King MKII Pellets – Review

With JSB Match Diabolo Exact Pellets I can get unbelievable groups with my Umarex Gauntlet and Origin air rifles. U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- I about titled this Product Review-ALL PELLETS ARE NOT CREATED EQUAL. Here’s why. When I first got into modern airguns I got frustrated fast with how inaccurate that they were. You hunt small game when hunting with airguns that have small kill zones. If they’re not accurate then you’re going to either miss them or wound everything. Neither option is good. ...

Knives of Alaska Professional Boning Knife – Review

The Knives of Alaska Professional Boning Knife will work great for all of your boning needs as well as for filleting your fish. U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- Years ago I talked to Charles Allen, the owner of Knives of Alaska and Diamond Blade knives about the need for a boning knife for the outdoorsman. Then we discussed it further in 2016 while we were brown bear hunting in Alaska. Long story short, in 2019 he called me and told me that he was sending me a prototype boning knife that he had devel...

The Galco Ankle Trauma Medical Kit will help you keep your medical gear handy so all you have to do is grab the kit when you go out the door plus, it is handy to carry.

ALPS Mountaineering Nimble Air Mat – Review

The Alps Mountaineering Nimble Air Mat is the most compact and yet tallest sleeping pad that I have seen. U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- Last week my daughter and I went backpacking in the Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness Area. Any trip of that magnitude takes some preparation. We wanted to test some new gear on this trip and if you’ve ever backpacked then you know that the two enemies that you are always fighting are: Bulk Weight Over the years I’ve used a lot of Alps Mountaineering ge...

At the economical price of (MSRP $11.99) you ought to throw an Aquimira Frontier straw in all of your backpacks, boat and truck. U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- In the old days when backpacking or elk hunting, I had to carry a 2-liter bottle of water. That got heavy. In camp I had to boil my water or carry water pumps and a storage jug. When hunting, fishing or hiking in the mountains you have to suck down a lot of water.

S.O.L. Duct Tape for the Outdoorsman

The SOL Duct Tape comes with 2 rolls per package and can be a life saver when you have equipment failure. U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- I’ve never been in the camp that claims that Duct Tape is good for everything from patching up a hangnail to straightening up the leaning Tower of Pisa. That is, until a few years ago. I guess we all have incidences pop up that help form our opinions on future matters. I’ll share a few that helped switch me over to the Duct Tape lover’s camp. S.O.L.

The Smith & Wesson Locking Liner Folding Knife is a great EDC knife or to be used as a tactical knife. It has a lot of features for being such an economical knife.
