5.0 out of 5 stars  Great fit and finish, low muzzle flash., January 19, 2015
Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
Very good construction, fit and finish! Does not produce very much flash and directs concussion away on my 8.5″ 300 blackout which is a hard combo to find using a linear muzzle device. Overall very satisfied with my purchase.

This review is from: Tactical Low Concussion Linear Rifle Muzzle Brake TLC/CQB (Misc.)


First, I have to say that this is really a cool looking comp. I was impressed with it right out of the box. I was also impressed with how quickly it shipped.I installed it on a 7.5″ barrel and put a couple hundred rounds through it. There probably isn’t much of anything that can be done with the sheer volume of noise that comes out of a barrel that short, but from the firing position the sound and concussion are significantly reduced opposed to the areas adjacent. Firing the rifle you don’t seem to notice how bad the sound is, but if you’re off to the side you can both hear and feel the difference. I can’t even imagine how terrifying it must sound down range. As advertised, it does a great job projecting all that away from the shooter.

On a pistol, you’re limited to just a cheek weld on a buffer tube to absorb the impact of kick. I didn’t experience any issues with serious kickback effecting aim or follow up. Only during a mag dump did the muzzle rise become pronounced, and even then not as much as I would have expected.

I haven’t fired the Levang or Claymore to compare this to, but compared to a standard comp that ports out the sides this is noticeably better. I’m very pleased with it and will likely order it again on future builds. : Tactical Low Concussion Linear Rifle Muzzle Brake TLC/CQB : Sports & Outdoors.

DEA chief: US abandoned plan to track cars near gun shows

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Drug Enforcement Administration abandoned an internal proposal to use surveillance cameras for photographing vehicle license plates near gun shows in the United States to investigate gun-trafficking, the agency’s chief said Wednesday.

DEA Administrator Michelle Leonhart said in a statement that the proposal memorialized in an employee’s email was only a suggestion, never authorized by her agency and never put into action. The AP also learned that the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives did not authorize or approve the license plate surveillance plan.

Automated license plate scanners take pictures of every vehicle that passes their field of view and record the information in a database that can be used to track a vehicle’s movements over time.

Federal, state and local police agencies routinely use the cameras mounted on patrol cruisers or in fixed locations, such as utility poles or busy intersections. Collectively, they capture the movements of millions of vehicles each day. Private companies, including tow truck agencies, also use them.

The scanners have raised significant privacy concerns even though they generally only record cars and trucks driving on public roads. There are no consistent, national rules that govern how police can use the information, how long it can be saved and how widely the records can be shared with other police agencies.

The Wall Street Journal reported the DEA’s aborted plan in Wednesday’s editions.

Tactical Low Concussion Review

Tactical Low Concussion Rifle Muzzle Brake
5.0 out of 5 stars Best SBR muzzle brake! Near Zero Concussion…Bought two more!, December 28, 2014
Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
I had recently built an AR Pistol and tried many muzzle brakes with the intention on cutting down concussion and muzzle rise, with little success. I purchased this Tactical Low Concussion Muzzle from Bud Ready with a skeptical view…until I installed it on my weapon. The concussion felt was near zero, the fire was directed down range, and the muzzle rise was significantly reduced. Not only is it the best one I have used so far (Troy, Lantac, etc.) it is made in the USA. I have already placed an order for two more. Hands down best muzzle brake for SBR!

Gun owners fear Maryland police target them for traffic stops

Police have been on the lookout for those bearing arms along the busy Interstate 95 corridor between Florida and Maine. Especially zealous police officers have stopped several motorists in Maryland. (Associated Press)

A year ago this New Year’s Eve, John Filippidis of Florida was driving south with his family on Interstate 95 when the Maryland Transportation Authority Police pulled over his black Ford Expedition and proceeded to raid it while his twins, wife and daughter looked on — separated in the back seats of different police cruisers.

The officers were searching for Mr. Filippidis‘ Florida-licensed, palm-size Kel-Tec .38 semi-automatic handgun, which he left at home locked in his safe. (Maryland does not recognize handgun permits issued by other states.)

When the search turned up nothing, Mr. Filippidis, 51, was allowed to go and was issued only a speeding warning.

The incident gained national attention. Mr. Filippidis went on multiple radio programs and described in detail how scared and outraged he and his family were. He wondered: How did the police know he was licensed for concealed carry, and what right did they have to search through his personal items on the side of the busy interstate filled with holiday travelers on that 10-degree day?

“My wife’s hysterical, shaking and crying,” Mr. Filippidis recalled in an interview with The Washington Times. “I don’t have a criminal record. I own a business. I’m a family man, and I tried to explain that to [the officer]. But he had a bad attitude, didn’t want to hear my story. He just wanted to find that gun and take me away from my family. That was his goal, but he couldn’t do it, because I didn’t have a gun, like I told him.”

Mr. Filippidis‘ case earned the support of Second Amendment advocates and subsequent apologies from the MDTA. But an internal police review concluded his stop and search were lawful and did not violate police protocols.

Those findings, however, have not satisfied other out-of-state gun owners, who worry that they, too, have been targeted for minor traffic stops in Maryland because they have concealed weapons permits. Their stories are accumulating.

John Tonnesen IV of Lake Worth, Florida, was pulled over and arrested after a search of his work truck — by the same officer who stopped Mr. Filippidis — turned up his .45-caliber Ruger, licensed in the state of Florida. He doesn’t believe the stop was coincidental.

“It was unloaded and stuffed into a bag far from me,” Mr. Tonnesen told The Times. “There’s scanners in Maryland that scan every tag, and Florida is one of their target vehicles. They’ll find whatever reason they can to pull you over.”

MDTA denies it targets out-of-state gun owners and noted the review of Mr. Fillipides earlier traffic stop concluded the officers did nothing wrong.

“The MDTA Police conducted a review of the traffic stop and have concluded that the stop and subsequent search of the vehicle were justified,” spokesman Jonathan Green wrote in an emailed statement. “The investigation did not reveal any violations of law or agency policy.”

The officer who stopped both gun owners is “assigned to the I-95 corridor where there is a large volume of out of state travelers,” Mr. Green said.
