We headed out to the Utah desert with Pastrana, Streetbike Tommy, and gang to do what we do best. This meant shooting a lot (a LOT) of guns at some…unusual targets. Watch the video to see how much damage a bowling ball and some Tannerite® can do to a Breaking Bad-worthy camper van. WARNING: The people in this video are semi-trained professionals.

Should I Carry? Blog 002: Firearms & Travel No one wants to think worst case scenario but it is something that should always be considered when venturing outdoors. Whether hunting, camping, or just hiking you should always consider the “what if” and be prepared with a plan — who can I call, where can I run to for help?

We’re trying to get within range of long-beard turkeys thundering their morning wake up calls. White flashlight beams bouncing through scrub isn’t what most hunters would consider a stealth tactic, but it’s the best we had. Logan is familiar with guns, but a first-time hunter.

This approach to engineering results in non-intuitive baffle reversal and reduces the sound report on a .22LR rifle to an
