Yugoslavian JNA Gas Mask: MIL-1206

The Yugoslavian JNA gas masks date from the 1970s to the 1980s, with no choice of year. The one I received was dated 1978. They are exact copies of the extremely popular U.S. M9A1 gas mask. It is one of the most copied designs in the world and is one of the only proven-in-battle gas masks to work against nerve agents and mustard gas. The Yugoslavian gas mask Cheaper Than Dirt! sells is the model M-1. It comes with the gas mask, canvas bag, instruction book (not in English) and one 60mm-threaded filter. Each gas is new and unissued, heat-sealed in a plastic bag. The filter also comes in a separate, sealed plastic bag.

The Extremely Affordable Self-Defense .380 ACP You’ve Never Heard of: Cobra Enterprises Freedom Series

Cobra Firearms makes the cheapest pistol you can purchase new on the market today. That being said, I knew I’d have to review this gun for what it is—a cheap, simple, single-action pistol made from pot metal. It is an incredibly simple, striker-fired design. Of course, out of the very first seven rounds fired, I had three malfunctions. On my second go through, I experienced zero problems. And what do you know, but hot dang, that Cobra Freedom shoots point of aim. Every single one of us repeatedly hit bullseye. How’s that for accuracy?

Winter Isn’t Over: The Top 5 Winter Weather Prepping Tips

A NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) severe winter weather alert states that much of the South and Southeast United States is under a winter weather warning. Remember, a warning means the weather event is already happening or will happen in the near future and residents should prepare now for bad weather. Through the rest of the week, a winter storm is blowing through most of the United States including the Northwest, Great Lakes and moving to the Eastern Seaboard, affecting the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast, as well. Freezing rain and heavy snowfall is predicted for the Pacific Northwest and the Northern Rockies. Instead of relying on a government that might not be able to rescue you, be as prepared as you can for the following weeks as severe winter weather still befalls us.

All About Match Grade Ammunition

Among the best choices across the board in .223 is the Sierra 69-grain MatchKing. Why? I could state that this bullet has given excellent service in every rifle, from a 16-inch barrel carbine to a heavy-barrel bolt gun. The Sierra bullet also wins matches, and more than any other bullet in the class—at least to my knowledge. Sierra is known for high quality and precision, and precision is what match grade is all about.

SIG 1911 Carry Stainless

There are two great service-grade types in the 1911 handgun—stainless steel handguns are good, serviceable pistols for hard use and commander-size handguns are a good choice for concealed carry. After all, if there were a legitimate criticism of the 1911 pistol, it would be size and weight. The 1911 is thin and heavy. Ergonomics are excellent and beyond question. The attributes of the type make modification, and even redesign, desirable as long as you keep the advantages. Read more…
