Two New Voodoo Packs Offer Options

We are pleased to offer two new packs from Voodoo Tactical, the Low Drag backpack and the Versa All Weather Ruck. Both packs are available in black, olive green and coyote tan.

LowDragPackThe Low Drag pack is designed for those who want a more compact, shortened pack without sacrificing carrying capacity. Stout where other packs are tall, the low drag pack allows you to carry a significant load higher on your back. This makes it a good option for shorter customers who may find large bags like the Tobago too tall.

Voodoo’s Low Drag pack is a great size for a bug out bag – large enough to carry plenty of gear, but not so large you need a crew of three to carry it. It features three fields of MOLLE PALS webbing that allow you to selectively add additional pouches and tie down points on the bottom to attach a bedroll, sleeping bag or tent.

It would also make an ideal travel or every day carry pack for those who want the durability and performance of a tactical bag but do not wish to look too “military.”

HSGI Double Decker TacoMaybe you have heard of High Speed Gear, or maybe you’ve seen photos of of their products in magazines such as Recoil, but you really can’t fully understand how well made their products are and how slick they work until you’ve put your hands on it. Their pouches start where most of the others have left off, thanks to an innovative design that expands and contracts to safely and securely hold its contents.

 

The HSGI line of TACOs is the next step in the evolution of the tactical magazine pouch. Each TACO – and they come in multiple configurations – is flexible enough to fit a wide range of sizes. For example, their standard TACO designed to hold one rifle pouch will hold your standard AR15/M4 magazine as well as polymer magazines like the Magpul, which are sometimes a tight fit in other brands. But the same TACO pouch will also hold an AK47 magazine, and an AR10 magazine. Of course, it fits mags for the FAL, M14 and H&Ks as well. It’s also flexible enough to hold flash bangs, smoke grenades and other equipment.

Southern Grind Knives Now Available at Captain Dave’s

We are proud to announce that Captain Dave is now an authorized dealer for Zac Brown’s Southern Grind knives. Made in the United States – Georgia, to be exact – these high-quality blades are nice enough to suit the collector but tough enough to use every day. These knives are semi-custom, meaning that each knife is hand assembled and produced to fill our specific order.

 

For a limited time, all Southern Grind Knives ship free to the lower 48 states

 

Captain Dave’s usually has more than 100 different knives in our display case, and the Southern Grind Bad Monkey folding knives fill a definite niche above the traditional folders we offer from companies like CRKT, Syderco and SOG. Compared to a mass produced knife from the likes of Gerber or Cold Steel, the materials, workmanship and attention to detail of the Bad Monkey stands out.

Tru-Spec 24-7 Tactical Pants are Now 25% Off

Tru-Spec 24-7 Tactical PantsStop by our store and it’s a good bet that at least one employee – and sometimes three or four – is wearing a pair of Tru-Spec’s 24-7 tactical pants. Sometimes it’s a pair of their Eclipse jean-style tactical pants or the Tru-Spec classic pants, but most of us prefer the original 24-7 pants.

 

And what’s not to like? They are comfortable and useful, with deep front pockets capable of concealing a revolver or pocket pistol, plus two cargo pockets, each of which is large enough to hold two AR15 magazines or the world’s largest wallet. There are two smaller flap pockets in the front and a matched set of rear pockets, all protected with a flap that is secure by a good amount of Velcro. There is also a thin knife pocket on each side that also can hold a flashlight or a tool.

 

If you wear an IWB holster, the expandable waistband of these pants will allow you to be as comfortable with it on as you were without it, and there is an internal pouch at the knees that will allow you to slip a knee pad inside.  The teflon coating helps keep them clean and makes a splash of water bead up and roll off, usually before it soaks you.

Protect Your Weapons with a Rugged Hard-Shell Case

We have sold the Voodoo Tactical padded weapons cases for years, and these are quite popular with customers who need a case to carry their weapons to the range or in the field. Voodoo Tactical makes a wide range of sizes and offers soft cases designed for shotguns, subguns, carbines, hunting rifles, and even large .50 caliber sniper rifles. Their cases come in a wide range of colors and styles, including lockable cases that allow customers in states like California to meet the legal requirements of transporting their weapons in a locked case.

 

Quick Fire double pistol case

Quick Fire double pistol case

As good as the Voodoo Tactical padded weapons cases are, however, they do not meet the standards for checking weapons on an airline. In general, airlines require that the weapons be in a lockable, hard case. When you consider that a weapon checked on an airline will be out of your sight and out of your control for hours, having a tough, solidly built, lockable case is a darn good idea. Captain Dave’s has added a new line of hard shell firearm cases from Quick Fire Cases that we feel are top of the line.

 

Quick Fire offers a range of waterproof pistol cases, shotgun cases, and rifle cases, but one thing that truly sets them apart is the foam inside the case. This durable, mil-spec foam will protect your weapon from extreme handling and resists solvents so it won’t be degraded by gun oils. The foam inserts also come pre-cut to fit your specific weapon or, in the multi-fit pistol cases, to fit more than 50 different models of pistols, from compact to full size.  And because the foam inserts are molded to fit your weapon, you do not need to spend time manually configuring your case to your gun.
