After more than a year of development, testing and refinement, the Battle Arms Development – Ambidextrous Safety Selector (or ‘BAD-ASS’) has finally been released, which is very exciting for me as a left-handed user of the AR-15. The BAD-ASS is user-configurable and addresses the issue of lever interference with the trigger hand when rotating the lever from ‘safe’ to ‘fire’. The BAD-ASS is designed for both left and right handed shooters who believe that ambidextrous controls on a weapon are an advantage, and allow the user to operate the weapon as efficiently as possible no matter which side they’re firing from.
Like the DK jacket from OTTE Gear, the interesting new DK Hybrid Jacket is designed for movement-intensive operations and activities, and includes the ability to roll up the sleeves to convert it to short-sleeved configuration. While similar the DK, the Hybrid is a more streamlined jacket made of a combination of hard shell and soft shell material to provide the weather protection of a hard shell in the most exposed area and the comfort and breathability of a shoft shell when worn under armour.
Gear Sector, which specializes in weapon slings and accessories, offers a line of picatinny rail mounts as front attach points for slings. Their rail mounts are designed with an ergonomic contour that mates with most rail panels on the market for uninterrupted rail space.
I occasionally get emails asking where I got my little medic pouch patch, and after looking around, discovered that there aren’t a whole lot of choices. I asked my bud over at Mil-Spec Monkey about the possibility of making up some medicsquare patches just like he did with the blood type patches shown above, and viola! Here they are. They’re offered in the same colour schemes as the blood type patches and are available in 1″ and 2″ squares.
