What does Chat GPT think about the Glock 19?

Last week in our meeting, a question came up regarding using Chat GPT for blogs. So I started with a question they asked me to ask. “Why is the Glock 19 the most popular handgun?” Here is what it said:

The nighttime is the right time!

In the wide world of firearm optics, the pursuit of superior performance in low-light conditions has always been a priority. Whether for hunting, tactical work, or personal defense, the ability to find your targets swiftly and accurately in the dark can make all the difference. The Holosun DRS-NV has entered the chat. A red dot sight designed specifically to excel in nighttime environments, elevating your shooting experience to a whole new level.

Holosun, renowned for its innovative optics solutions, has carved a niche in the industry by consistently pushing boundaries and addressing the evolving needs of shooters. One of the standout features of the Holosun DRS-NV is its blending of both conventional optics and night vision devices. This versatility allows shooters to seamlessly transition between daytime and nighttime operations without the need for additional equipment changes. Whether mounted on a rifle, shotgun, or pistol, the DRS-Nv delivers consistent performance across various platforms, making it a versatile solution for diverse shooting applications.

Battery life is not as good as their 50k hour red dots with solar charging but for what it’s doing I am very impressed. Power to do so is provided by two rechargeable 18350 lithium batteries. The batteries will last up to six hours on a single charge and can be recharged via a (provided) 5V Type-C USB cable. This can also be used to download stored videos and images. The DRS-NV utilizes Holosun’s “Shake Awake” technology. This automatically turns on the LED emitter when any movement is detected and similarly shuts down the optic once it becomes motionless.

Furthermore, the DRS-Nv boasts a durable and weather-resistant construction, capable of withstanding harsh environmental conditions without compromising performance. Its rugged design, coupled with precise windage and elevation adjustments, ensures reliable operation and consistent accuracy even in the most demanding environments.


In conclusion, the Holosun DRS-NV represents a paradigm shift in night vision optics, combining cutting-edge technology with unparalleled versatility and reliability. Whether you’re a seasoned operator, avid hunter, or recreational shooter, the DRS-Nv offers a distinct advantage in low-light environments, empowering you to achieve your shooting goals with confidence and precision. With its innovative features, robust construction, and uncompromising performance, the Holosun DRS-NV sets a new standard for red dot sights in nighttime applications, redefining the possibilities of nocturnal shooting experiences.

A revolution is upon us

Our Facebook page was taken away from us a couple weeks ago for nothing more than a photo of a LE trade-in. No pricing, no link, no mention of transaction at all. Now you may be saying “you guys had to have done something wrong” Well sure, we are on the wrong side of the agenda. Now by Facebook’s own policy, we have actually done more censoring than needed. Check it out:

So by their policy, we can post guns and items for sale as long as we are following the laws and regulations. If we post a gun with a dollar amount or any word describing a transaction, it gets taken down. If we use the same photo with no pricing but mention it is in stock, traded in, available, or anything like this, it will become flagged within a day or so. Then at the same time, a year will go by with no flags or warnings and randomly we will get a post taken down. There is no rhyme or reason.

Now the revolution will start. We want our page back.

We could have paid some crazy fee for a company to get the page back but it does not give us a clean slate, we are restored to where we got unpublished which seems like a huge waste. Which brings us to where we are now.

We have a brand new Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/AimSurplusLLC

Not only are we doing a new page we decided to make our monthly giveaway a part of it.

So everyone who follows our new Facebook page will be eligible to win a Bereta 1301 and Vortex Spitfire II optic!

and you know what, if you win and mention the blog when we notify you I’ll send you a hoodie and a shirt too!

LaRue Tactical!

We are now carrying LaRue Tactical! Usually, they deal with smaller shops or shops they have some sort of relationship with, well we finally got in a spot where they are allowing us to distribute some of their cool stuff!

Optic mounts, Light Mounts, Triggers, Uppers, Rail Panels, Handstops and much much more!

Let’s talk about Dryfire

I have noticed a lot of talk recently about dryfire but more specifically “managing recoil when dryfiring” A lot of people say no to this but there are a good number of people who claim they can work on managing recoil without actually firing their gun.

I am a nobody but I do shoot pretty often and I have been fortunate enough to shoot with some insanely talented shooters. I do not dry fire really, sometimes I will if I want to work on something I noticed or if I want to try something out. I just don’t have the time to do it or care enough to do it, I tend to work on flaws or adjustments at the range every time anyway. My thoughts on this come from what I have learned myself as well as what I have been taught. I do not think you can “Manage” recoil in dry fire for one main reason: there is no recoil.

You are pretending to know how the gun is going to react/recoil. You have no accurate way of measuring, you are guessing what it is going to be so in this practice you are conditioning yourself or developing muscle memory into either more recoil or less because of what you are thinking it’s going to be. You cannot predict how a car takes a turn by sitting in it parked in the garage. You have an idea of what it will do but you won’t know until you actually push it.

People argue you are working on your grip and your sights which are two things you are using to mitigate that recoil. Sure, but there is no recoil. The first part of managing the recoil is the grip, so I get where that comes from. It is when you are applying the pressure and seeing what works at what time is where the live fire comes in. If you are gripping your gun exactly how you do in live fire, your arms are going to be smoked in 15-20 mins from that. So I guess you can work on perfecting everything up to the recoil happening but managing actual recoil isn’t going to happen without the presence of actual recoil which is then not dry fire.

I am not saying dryfire is a waste of time, it’s a fantastic use of time especially when you are new to shooting and trying to find that perfect draw, grip, or presentation. I think it’s a good tool for transitioning to different targets and a very good tool for dialing that grip in and how you want it.

I do also think that there is no one correct way to dry fire, you may do it to only work on your draw or for reloads, either way, you are doing it. That is the most important part, you are taking the steps to be better.

Shot Show From a Distance

I was not lucky enough to go to Shot this year however I did see some really cool items that I am excited for. Here is what I am looking forward to seeing come in

Aero Precisons M4E1 Pro.

The M4E1 Pro lower receiver is the full ambi version of the awesome M4E1. The right-side bolt catch is in a good place and easy to engage. It looks good and it’s Aero quality so I think it will be a hit. I tried to get a good picture of one but nothing official yet and everything I can borrow is not good quality. So screen grabs will do:

Next up, Holosun Iris Laser/Illuminator.

Holosun keeps crushing it and hopefully pushes other brands to lower prices. Their optics in the last 3 years have been fantastic and some of the best in the game. Now their laser stuff is approaching that level. A couple of tweaks here and there and you can have amazing civilian offerings.

Next up is one that’s weird looking but I kinda love it. The Alien Creator from Laugo Arms.

This thing is crazy looking in a good way, it has some really cool features that users requested and a company actually listened!

Decreased grip angle, more towards a 1911 grip. Low profile magazine base pads, an interchangeable top rail so you can compete in carry optics or an iron sight division and you just swap top rails instead of having to unscrew and rezero a bunch. You have a fixed barrel and nonlocking slide for fast cycle time, and super customizable grip panels to really get your custom fit, and then one of the coolest features: the lowest bore axis in the game.

SDS Imports has some cool stuff coming out too, a double stack 1911 and a couple MP5 clones but actually what got my attention is their new shotguns. They are so cool Agency decided to use them as a base for some of their new stuff.

There is so much cool stuff coming out and countless videos from Shot showing all of them but I wanted to just do a quick rundown of some stuff that caught my eye! I cannot wait to see what this year brings.
