On Target Hawaii Profile: The Evolution of RS Regulate

RS Regulate

  by Rob Kay I formerly worked in Silicon Valley where entrepreneurship and the passion to create technology are absolute necessities to succeed in building a company. What’s never too far from people’s minds is the thought of striking it rich. It’s all about having an “exit strategy”, that is...how much money you’re gonna make […]

On Target Review: AK Accouterments from Blackhawk! and Otis

Blackhawk bag

by Rob Kay When you get into a new platform, as I have with the AK, you inevitably start acquiring the accouterments—the necessary gear to complete the package.

SGM rifle 1

by Rob Kay It’s no secret that the vast majority of people who purchase sporterized VEPRs do so with the intention of converting them to a rifle with a more traditional AK "aesthetic". If you’re lucky enough to acquire a VEPR (given the current climate it will take a bit of luck to do so) […]
