Build Blowback Better: Aero Precision EPC 9mm AR Pistol ReviewAdam Smith
The concept of a 9mm AR is nothing new. In the early 1980s, Colt began developing 9mm prototypes based on this platform, the earliest of which was an open-bolt submachine gun that fed from a modified Uzi magazine.

Infographic: The World’s Deadliest Structural CollapsesAdam Smith

New: HitchFire Ledge Swing-Out for Tailgating and CampingAdam Smith
Whether you're heading up to the mountains for a weekend of camping or tailgating with friends before a football game, clutter-free “counter” space is usually at a premium. A regular truck tailgate can get overcrowded quickly once you set up a stove, cooler, cookware, utensils, plates, a cutting board, water jug, and so on....
