Often, we start out in this sport by shooting the way we see the most popular shooters doing it, or by following how we’re shown in a permit certification and safety course. Most of the time, the ways we learn only focus on shooting with a right-handed firearm.
Since most modern AR-15 rifles are only available in right hand, we figure that we’re supposed to be shooting that way. But what if you’re not right eye dominant?
A well-built AR-15 is one of the most reliable semi-auto firearms available. But sometimes even the best rifles may malfunction, and when they do, it is time to diagnose the cause of the malfunction.
One of the first components that should be investigated is the magazine.
Magazines get dirty. They vary in quality and dimension from manufacturer to manufacturer. Springs wear out and bodies get bent or broken. Magazines get dropped on the ground and stepped on. Most AR-15 malfunctions are related to lube, ammo, or magazines, or a combination.
The first time your bullet makes contact with a pound of Tannerite, you might say “Holy cow this stuff is awesome?” The two components that make up Tannerite are: aluminum powder and ammonium nitrate. Both components are completely inert by themselves before mixed so it’s 100% safe to handle and legal to possess, as per the ATF. It is also safe to use because only a bullet, traveling at the minimum of 2100 FPS, can set it off.
Recently Tannerite has become more mainstream with the help of online videos depicting people using it. This has made Tannerite more readily available and can be purchased at most local gun shops, big box outdoor stores, or online.
Choosing a rifle scope is at least as important a decision as choosing a rifle. It is not unrealistic to pay as much or more for the scope as the cost of the rifle. So it is no surprise that you want to get all the possible features for your money.
But when it comes to optics, you can get too much of a good thing. Adjustments that are too fine, reticles that are too complex, and the most common mistake: too much magnification.
Red dot sights have revolutionized many types of shooting. Combining advantages of iron sights and rifle scopes, they also bring advantages that no previous sighting system has offered. Whether you are in combat, competition, or hunting dangerous game, red dot sights can allow you to use your skill to the greatest potential.
Unfortunately, most shooters are not using their red dot sights to the sight’s greatest potential.
Saying Clip Instead of Magazine
The confusion between a clip and a magazine is very common, and the terms are mutually exclusive. Most of the time this happens when people use the word clip when referring to a firearm magazine. You have to wonder if this happens because of movies and television shows where they depict firearms, terminology, and how firearms function incorrectly.
If we hear the same phrases over and over again from these forms of media, it starts to become part of our vocabulary and is defined according to the inaccurate information from these sources. For those of us who do know the difference when hearing clip used when someone should have said magazine, it can have an almost "nails on the chalkboard" effect.
Stag Arms is proud to release its 16 inch AR-15 carbine rifles in the popular 300 AAC BLK / 7.62x35mm caliber. The company had researched and tested many different cartridges on the AR-15 platform before making a final decision. Stag Arms president Mark Malkowski stated “In addition to the upper halves we offer in this caliber we are now offering a complete AR-15 rifle using the 300 Blackout cartridges with heavier bullets, great ballistics, and already on the shelves of most major stores. By utilizing the same reliable AR-15 firearm platform customers can still use their standard accessories.”
The Model 1, 2, 2T, 3, 3T, & 3T-M series of rifles can now be purchased in the 300 Blackout caliber for an additional $50.00. The barrels are 16” long and manufactured from 4140 steel with chrome lining on the inside to increase durability. The 1/7 twist rate is designed to work with all bullet weights in the caliber and the barrel thread for the muzzle device is 5/8x24.
The supersonic 300 AAC Blackout cartridge was designed to closely match the ballistics of 7.62x39 ammunition with a minimal number of non-interchange parts compared to a 5.56 NATO AR-15. To decrease the feeding issues that occurred with 7.62x39 ammunition on the AR-15 platform, the cartridge case was derived from the U.S. Military 5.56 NATO case and will work with standard AR-15 magazines while retaining their original ammunition capacity.

Firearms, like other tools, fulfill a specific application for the user. If you wanted to nail deck boards down, you’d pull out your nail gun. If you are looking to go hunting, target shooting or home defense, you would choose an AR-15. The AR-15 serves many purposes, it is extremely customizable and can be a showpiece of individuality along with being a hard-working firearm.
Every collector needs a signature AR-15 set up to their specifications, and anyone looking for a versatile firearm should consider a Stag Arms rifle.
For some, it is hard to believe that firearms have actually been around for almost 1000 years. The earliest reports of firearms date back to the 13th century and gained prominence over the next few centuries.
Of course, those primitive firearms, while revolutionary in their time, pale in comparison to the innovations in firearm technology that would follow.
