I review the Phantom Hill CTF2 Laser Aiming Module

The Phantom Hill CTF2 is a modular laser aiming device for night vision shooting. Here are my thoughts on it.

Disclosures: No money exchanged hands for this review however I was provided the CTF2 by Phantom Hill for the purpose of review.

Optics Magnifiers and You

Below is a comparison table of 19 different industry optics magnifiers. Specifically the add-on type that can be flipped-to-side when not needed. From the expensive to the … less expensive. I can’t claim credit for any of the research here. I was given this chart by someone who got it off of the Light-Fighter Manifesto discord server. Just passing it along. I am sure someone out there needs this.

EOTech’s new competitor for the NGAL. I will let the video do the talking.

On the Live Q or Die podcast IG: Allyoutpost revealed EOTech’s newest competitor on the NVG laser market aimed at competing with the NGAL. Supposedly the civilian version will retail for $1,299.00. If that is true I will be looking to get one. See the video at the link below on instagram.

Chinese made automatic webbing cutter. Should you even look at it? A DIY Gear Review of the RbaySale

Why everyone needs an AR-15 – from Issac Botkin

T.Rex Arms produced this amazing 30 minute video about not just the AR-15 but rather an entire abridged history of the development of “militarize” firearms. Those who oppose civilian ownership of any weapons that may or might be used by military personnel are likely not being truthful (or perhaps are completely ignorant) regarding the history precedent of the subject. The production quality here is off the scale. A big thumbs up from 30MC (I have watched it three times). If I have convinced you to give the video a shot then please budget the time to watch it all the way through.

It just so happens that I was working on a write-up that was basically along the same lines as this video. As there is no way I could say things better I will most likely be pivoting that write-up to tackle a different angle of the argument. Stay tuned for that.

Green and White Phosphor Night Vision. What’s the difference?

Night Vision used to always be green, right? That is certainly how I remember it. All of a sudden this pale bluish-white image started appearing in intensifier tubes and everybody had to have it. Is it better than green? The price it commands seems to think so.
