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

This review is mainly targeted at the DIY tactical gear makers out there. Anyone from the hobbyist to the guys running side gigs making gear out of their basement, garage, extra bed room.

Book: Killer Elite by Michael Smith

Everyone has head of Delta and DEVGRU . But how many know of the Intelligence Support Activity (ISA)? Often referred to as simply The Activity. The SOF unit that rarely gets film representation. Utilizing both male and female operators the Activity develops intelligence directly for other SOF units and “prepares the battlefield”, often being the first boots on the ground. From hunting drug lord’s to war criminals to Saddam and even present during the Bin Laden raid the Activity is essential to the effectiveness of our SOF units. Lots of additional info about Delta, DEVGRU, SpecialForces, SAS too.  Killer Elite is a must-read for anyone who desires to know more of how our elite forces get the job done.

This is not a new book release. I originally read this title years ago, but recently, an updated version was released.  Also available on Audible.

Note; Do not confuse this book with the film (Robert De Niro, Jason Statham, Clive Owen) and book (book also goes by the name, The Feather Men).  They are not related in any way to the Michael Smith writing that is reviewed here.

Elite Tactical Systems (ETS) C.A.M. Loader

I have been using the ETS C.A.M. loader for a few months now and thought it was time to give my opinion.  First off, let me say that there was no sponsorship or exchange for this review. The unit was purchased at MSRP and I have been using it on my own. At the time of this writing there is also a rifle caliber C.A.M loader from ETS but I currently only have experience with the 9mm/40cal loader.
