Our 2022 Holiday Shopping Suggestions (Continued)


Brownells 1-6X MPO Donut LPVO Scope

The LPVO (Low Power Variable Optic) has been displacing the red dot reflex sight becoming the weapon sight of choice by competition shooters as well as the military. In 2022, Brownells introduced a 1-6X LPVO with a unique reticle the company describes as a donut reticle. The offering has superb optical clarity with no observable distortion or loss of clarity at its highest magnification level. Its donut reticle emulates the standard issue STG optic. It features reticle illumination and superb tracking. Brownells accurately dubs it MPO or Match Precision Optic. It’s also a bargain given its performance and Brownells reputation for customer service.

Blackbeard: the auto-resetting trigger system for AR-15 - Mantis


Mantis pioneered software centric laser based training systems. The company’s training tools are the best on the market. In 2020, the company added the BLACKBEARD an AR-15 Trigger Auto Reset System to their portfolio. For 2022, they introduced an enhanced version, The Blackbeard X. To use the system, you replace your AR-15’s bolt carrier group with Blackbeard’s laser module, then insert the battery pack in the magazine well and you’re ready to train, and the app is free. The system is completely safe, so it can be used anywhere. I can accurately describe it as highly effective and tons of fun.

Kestrel KST 1000

At the 2022 SHOT SHOW, Kestrel announced  the KST 1000 shot timer. Shot timers are used in training and shooting competitions; more notably pistol shooting events. The Kestrel shot timer retains the same robustness as the company’s ballistic meters but features enhanced acoustic performance so it will detect even a dry fire click, making it a great dryfire training tool. It also features a loud and very audible buzzer. A great gift idea for your Holidays.
