We are excited to get our review of the Victor Company USA Viper Skins posted! I have been following the product development over at Victor Company USA since Michael Victor, the owner, announced his products a few years ago over on the Sniper’s Hide Forum. At the time I had been using my Accuracy International Chassis System with my custom Remington 700 rifle for a few years. Accuracy International was pushing their new AXCS, or AX AICS chassis, pretty hard. What Michael Victor did with Victor Company was take the best features of the Accuracy International AX Chassis and apply them to the legacy stocks that thousands of loyal AI customers had been using for years.
Welcome to the TAB Gear Rear Bag review! Choosing a rear bag is a very subjective process, different strokes for different folks. You have to pick something that works well for you, is comfortable, and fits the majority of shooting positions you work with. The TAB Gear bag offers a number of features that make it an attractive option for somebody looking for a bag. The bags are made right here in the USA by US labor and with US components. In a world of overseas production, that’s a nice touch. Further, they give their products a lifetime warranty. That’s a nice touch too.
One thing that’s nice to have on any rifle, is a sling with QD attachment points. They make it easy and fast to attach or detach a sling from a rifle. That’s important for a variety of reasons. In MIL/LE use, you may find yourself fighting over the retention of your weapon, opinions on how to handle that vary, but I subscribe to the ‘Don’t get thrown around by your own gun, give it to them, then give them 3 from your sidearm’ method of dealing with it. QD slings make it easy to separate from the rifle if you need to. Along the same lines, if you are wounded, it may become necessary to separate you from the weapon to render aid, moving a few hundred pounds of dead weight can be troublesome. Now how do you add those to a rifle with an Accuracy International Chassis System? Enter Victor Company QD Sling Adaptors!
Hearing protection is essential in any shooting discipline. The Peltor Tactical 6S hearing protection muffs are a popular choice among shooters for a variety of reasons. For starters, Peltor is something of a well known brand. They also have a wide product range with models in the entry, mid level, and higher end price points for the hearing protection equipment. The Peltor Tactical 6S muffs were an easy choice when I paired the product up with a gift card and brought the price down even lower. I’ve since had these muffs for a few years and for a long time, they were my go to set, seeing quite a bit of use. By far their biggest draw is the ambient noise filtering feature which allows the muffs to boost ambient noise so you can still hear and take part in conversations or listen to range commands as though you didn’t have any muffs on. When the Peltor Tactical 6S muffs detect noise above a certain decibel level, as with gunfire, they automatically shut off and the passive 20dB hearing protection muffles the sound of the shot.

An essential piece of shooting gear every shooter has in their bag is some form of hearing protection. There are many kinds at many price levels. The Howard Leight Impact Sport hearing protection muffs would fall into what I would consider the middle ground of hearing protection. Entry level stuff is your disposable plugs and $10 dollar muffs from large retail outlets. When you get up into the $50.00+ range you start to get more features for your money. In the case of the Howard Leight Impact Sport muffs you get both a nice set of passive protection muffs as well as an active sound amplification and filtering system. These muffs will amplify ambient sounds so you can still have a conversation with your shooting buddy without having to yell. At the same time they shut the sound boosting feature off when the ambient noise level reaches a certain level preserving your hearing during active shooting.
