One of the most noteworthy news developments in the firearms community is the launch of All Outdoors Tech, a website created by Tim Yan, arguably one of the premier authorities on firearms optics.

A five year veteran of the US Marine Corps, he served as a marksmanship instructor in the 1st Marine Division deployed in Somalia and the Sandbox. Tim has contributed his knowledge of foreign weapons to Marine Corps publications, Jane’s Defence and other firearms books. With a background in information technology and multimedia, he is interested in any tech gadgets and equipment that are related to firearms and the shooting sports.


Full disclosure, Tim was an important contributor to my book, How to Buy and AK-47 and I had the honor of posting the first review in Tim’s new publication, a T&E on Rock Island Armory’s 10mm PRO Match Ultra 6″.scope-mount

Tim’s new site will cover an eclectic mix of firearms related articles including:

  • Firearms and Ammunition (including reloading and ballistic gear)
  • Optics (rifle scopes, optical sights, binoculars, spotting scopes, laser range finders, etc)
  • Gun accessories and components
  • Book Reviews
