SJ Hardware Benelli M4 +1 Magazine Tube Extension


A few months ago, I received a gift basket of shotgun parts for my Benelli M4 Tactical from SJ Hardware. For the sake of clarity, I will disclose that I have known the owner of SJ Hardware for over a decade and consider him a friend. Additionally, the product was provided to me free of charge with the promise I would be honest in my assessments. As my regular readers know, friendship is not a free pass on this blog. This is the fourth in a series of articles assessing this collection of aftermarket accessories.

Improvised MOLLE Drop Panel



A few years ago, a very good friend of mine showed me this trick. I thought it was an excellent example of ingenuity and improvisation that should be shared. I stumbled across the pictures on my computer this week and decided to finally write a blog about this improvised MOLLE Drop Panel.

The Pelican 1920, Gen2 vs Gen 3.


Quite a few months ago, I picked up a Pelican 1920 Generation 2 at Mountain Equipment Co-op. This new incarnation was long awaited upgrade to the 1910-20 series of pocket flashlight making the family more competitive with other choices on the market. Both the 1910 and the 1920 Generation 2 were released in Spring of 2014. I finally got around to picking one up in May of 2016.
