For about three score years, shooters who wanted a folding stock were driven to one set of rifle platforms, while the free world settled on the AR and refined it to its current state. That the AR needed a receiver extension poking out the stern end to function, limiting its retraction in length, was accepted, although not always happily. Enter Law Tactical.
After my house was destroyed by a fire on 10 April 2005, Kevin McClung of Mad Dog Knives helped me clean up my firearms so I could read the serial numbers and report them as lost to the BATF.

Carrying spare ammunition for both primary and secondary weapons, medical items, night-vision equipment, communications gear, breaching charges, and maybe a couple of grenades or flash bangs can add up to quite a combat load. And let’s face it, there is only so much space on plate carriers, body armor, or chest racks to mount and store these items.
The tactical world is overrun with gimmicks, useless bolt-on trinkets, and various snake-oil peddlers. Some of these items are ridiculous, and only good for a laugh by those who might need to rely on their gear in the real world. Other items could actually hinder functionality and become a risk to life and limb.
In today’s world of ever-advancing technology and equipment in every aspect of life, it’s easy to get caught up in the “latest and greatest” hype. This is readily apparent as it relates to those who are in the business of keeping the peace and holding the line between good and evil.
