Smokeless Range Review

It is currently Summer time here in Texas, which means 100 degree weather for days. And as much as I love shooting, staying out in that heat is a beast, and indoor ranges are usually packed, loud, and have bad ventilation.  So during these summer months I spend less time outside shooting than I would like. In order to combat this I have been looking into different at home solutions. Being a big fan of airsoft and SIRT lasers I have come across the Smokeless Range by Laser-Ammo. What the Smokeless Range does that other similar products like L.A.S.R. does not, is allow you to use a projector or large screen TV. So instead of just placing a piece of paper, and pointing a camera to catch the light. This lets you practice against moving and reactive targets. Such as a Dueling Tree:

Systema Camp 2018 makes my fourth Systema camp. At the end of the last one in 2016 it was announced that the camp location we where using at the time was being sold and that a new location will be used in 2018. And just like in all the camps before, my plane arrived just after the buses left, which was no issue since I just road with the rest of the Dallas crew. Unlike the last three, we decided to not use tents this time, for they announced that this location had actual dorms instead of kids cabins. So we all decided to share one together. Even though each room was supposed to be labeled, it ended up being a free for all before we arrived and we ended up not in our assigned room, but a different one in the end with two other people.  This ended up being a blessing for the two other guys we roomed with where great people, with one always running off to pick up alcohol for the after training parties.

Trauma Kits


A Trauma Kit is a vital item that everyone and anyone should not only own, but should always have within a reasonable distance.  This is double for anyone who spends any time around firearms. There are many types of Trauma Kits, ranging from small and compact personal kits, all the way up to large kits designed to accommodate mass casualty situations. The types of kits I will be discussing here in this post will focus primarily around personal trauma kits. I will be discussing equipment, not so much on how to actually use it, we offer classes for that!

Personal Trauma Kits

As you may have learned in your standard trauma course, there are three major sections that we want to focus on: Circulation, Breathing and Airway. We want to make sure we cover these sections because they will cover the majority of trauma based situations you may encounter. I personally recommend that everyone builds their first kit by hand, before you go out and buy any pre-made kits. That way you know exactly what is in your kit and what is not. From there you can compare that to pre-made kits so you can have a better understanding on if that pre-made kits cover all your needs, and if it is a good deal or not.
