SILENCER SATURDAY #37: Subsonic 300BLK Shootout

Good afternoon everyone and thanks for coming back to TFB’s Silencer Saturday, where we consider hearing protection to be one of the core rules of firearm safety.

PSA: Don’t Shoot 300BLK Out Of An AK47

Here is your daily Public Service Announcement. Don’t shoot .300blk out of an AK chambered in 7.62x39mm. This was my mistake. Fortunately, nothing bad happened. AK Kabooms do not seem to be a commonplace occurrence compared to AR-15 kabooms. There is this infamous one regarding a Century Arms AK74. Nothing like that happened. Just some […] Read More … The post PSA: Don’t Shoot 300BLK Out Of An AK47 appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

BET ON BLACK – How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love 300 Blackout

As a follow up to last week’s Silencer Saturday where I professed my allegiance to the god that is 300 Blackout, I thought it might be a good idea to discuss my conversion in a little more detail. As I stated, my initial reaction came after comparing an MP5SD alongside a Sig Sauer Rattler with […] Read More … The post BET ON BLACK – How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love 300 Blackout appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

SILENCER SATURDAY #28: 300 BLK Is The Best Caliber On The Planet

Go ahead, change my mind. But to be clear, I’m referring to the silencer/suppressor world, where slinging heavy lead quietly through a proven semiautomatic platform is a requirement. I resisted the changeover to 300 Blackout for years, believing that 9mm was a universal cartridge that can pull its weight (pun definitely intended) in short barrels […] Read More … The post SILENCER SATURDAY #28: 300 BLK Is The Best Caliber On The Planet appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

TFB REVIEW: JAXX Industries 300BLK Micro Galil

Although soldiers in Israel Defense Forces (IDF) are most commonly seen carrying M16 rifles and M4 carbines made in the United States, the Israel Military Industries (IMI) Galil was their official rifle for almost two decades. During the Six Day War In 1967, the IDF captured thousands of AK47 assault rifles for later evaluation and found […] Read More … The post TFB REVIEW: JAXX Industries 300BLK Micro Galil appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

BRACE YOURSELF: Q Honey Badger Pistol With Brace

Since its humble beginnings as a garage workshop invention, the pistol stabilizing brace (PSB) has gone through a few generations worth of changes, upgrades and advancements. Some iterations were strictly functional, focusing on comfort over aesthetics. However, recent models have evolved into braces that are nearly indistinguishable from their stock counterparts. Collaborating with SB Tactical, […] Read More … The post BRACE YOURSELF: Q Honey Badger Pistol With Brace appeared first on The Fire...

POTD: Lucky Thirteen – Stacking 300Blk Front To Back

Having a bad day? I’ll help you put your firearms “issues” into perspective.

NEW: FightLite Industries RAIDER 5.56/.300BLK Pistol

Every gun must serve a purpose. Said the most boring person in the world. The truth is, the new RAIDER pistol from FightLite Industries looks nearly useless in every defensive scenario I can think of in today’s world. However, for some strange reason (maybe it’s my new found love in the 870 with the short […] Read More … The post NEW: FightLite Industries RAIDER 5.56/.300BLK Pistol appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

POTD: Size Matters Not To The Honey Badger

With preorder shipments heading out to dealers across the country, Q’s Honey Badger is rolling into regular sales with a head of steam.

Discreet Ballistics – Precision Machined Projectiles

Even though shooting quietly is a passion of mine, I have yet to break into the world of suppressed 300BLK.

Steyr Taunts Aug Chambered In 300BLK?

Steyr Arms took to Facebook last week to tease the upcoming release of “something big”. Displaying a picture of 300BLK ammunition and the signature charging handle of an iconic bullpup rifle, consumers can either assume that Steyr will be producing an AUG in a new chambering OR they are buying ARMSCOR ammunition. I’m going with an AUG in […] Read More … The post Steyr Taunts Aug Chambered In 300BLK? appeared first on The Firearm Blog.
