Gear Review: The Coin Sap By Foster Impact Devices

The sap; also called a slapper, slap jack, or beavertail sap is a highly effective impact device.

Gear Preview: CRKT Redemption – Designed by Ken Onion

We are full speed with our gear reviews for our backpacking / camping series. You should always have a good fixed blade knife with you on the trail or at the campsite.

Gear Review: The Pocket Socket

First Time Shooting a .338 Lapua Magnum
