From the Desk of John Rourke – August 4th, 2017


It’s interesting that nowadays prepping is far more accepted than prior to 2008/2012 time frames.

45 degree AR sights: A question was asked on a Facebook AR-15 forum as to whether or not 45 degree offset sights were good or not. My own opinion was that no – they were more of a fad or “tacticool” than anything. Of course, I was attacked immediately which is why I rarely comment on these sites.

Sure – they have a use. My answer was too general I know but this was FB and I had no reason to invest my time into a complete answer. For a very specific use, they could be beneficial. For the average AR unless substantial training will be applied to this setup I don’t think it’s worth it.

Now – a high magnification scope mounted on an AR or any other weapon system doesn’t lend itself well to CQC. That is where these sights could come in handy. Beyond that – I’ll pass.

Just saw the trailer for Death Wish. Bruce Willis stars in this remake of the Charles Brownson classic. Check it out HERE. Looks awesome!
