This is a sneak peek at the new Covert Rifle Bag collaboration between 2 Vet’s Arms and London Bridge Trading. We’ve all seen lots of gun bags claiming to be “covert” or “discreet” rifle bags but all too often they should be called the “Obvious Rifle Bag” and can be quite cumbersome and difficult to use. This new collaboration between 2 Vet’s Arms and London Bridge Trading has hit on some of these issues and looks to be an awesome new option.
One of the parts that stood out to me as a really cool new feature is the zippered Rifle Insert that goes inside the outer bag. In all of the other bags of this type that I’ve used the rifle just goes inside the bag and is strapped in. To use the bag for carrying something else you would have to take the rifle out in the open. With this setup the rifle is carried broken down and strapped inside of the insert along with a pouch designed to carry five 30 round mags. If I were out somewhere and needed to “covertly” remove the rifle from the bag, I could simply open it up and take out the Rifle Insert while the gun is still inside. This would allow me to convert the bag to a MASCAL med bag or use it for carrying other items in a snap without broadcasting that I have a rifle with me. That is the whole point to a bag like this.
Some people don’t like the idea of a backpack rifle case because if you needed to use the rifle right away you would have to remove the backpack, open it up, assemble the rifle and then use it. This new Covert Rifle Bag also incorporates a nifty little zippered pocket near the small of your back where you can pack a handgun and access it immediately without having to remove the bag. Its also large enough that you could carry a med kit or iPad, etc. in there instead if you didn’t feel the need for the handgun.
This bag will officially be introduced at SHOT Show 2014 but I did notice they are already up on the 2 Vets Arms website available as both a stand alone bag or as part of their extremely popular 2VA Prepper Package. The 2VA Covert Rifle Bag is available in Arx’terryx Wolf Grey, Kryptek Nomad, Kryptek Highlander (1st QTR 2014), Kryptek Mandrake and Multicam. Definitely head on over to www.2VetsArms.com and check these things out.
I thought I had found all of the deals out there for Black Friday but it appears I missed a couple. The guys at Katylist asked me to share their sale on the Victory Tactical Gear (aka VTG) Guardian Level IV 10X12 Rifle Plates. These usually sell for $340 but today and tomorrow only they are on sale for just $299.95. If you’ve been looking for some new plates, this is a great deal on some great armor. Check out www.Katylist.com to purchase a set before they go back to their normal pricing.
This specific sale is one I’ve been itching to share with you guys but it wasn’t live until today. If you are looking to start a new build, the Quentin Defense Black Friday Sale is where its at.

Battle Arms Development makes what is hands down the benchmark for which all other Safety Selectors are measured up against. They are just that good.

The Battle Arms Development Black Friday Sale also know as B.A.D. FRIDAY! is pretty simple. All orders placed on 11/29/13 will receive a FREE Battle Arms Patch.
