Houlding Precision Firearms Wraith

posted on January 23, 2015

Looking to put your AR-15 on a diet? Take a look at the Houlding Precision Firearms Wraith ultra-light rifle.

At a weight of 6.2 pounds, the Wraith is a lean, svelte option for competition or other pursuit where every ounce matters. Built with a match-grade barrel, Geissele Super Dynamic 3-gun trigger and a host of upgraded options, the Wraith is certain to perform every bit as well as it looks.

The Wraith offers significant value for the MSRP of $2,499, between the upgraded trigger, ultralight stock and fore-end and long list of substantial upgrades. What really catches your attention, though, is picking the rifle up and experiencing the lightweight, maneuverable carbine in person.

When it comes to a self-defense situation, most shooters think “Well, I’ll just shoot him!” Others may consider their personal “go-to” move to be a martial arts technique such as a finger strike to the eyes, bare-knuckle punch to the throat or kick to the groin.

CCW in Public Restrooms: When You Gotta Go...

Sometime, somewhere, you’ll require the use of a public restroom stall. After all, like we tell small children, “Everyone has to go.” If you carry a concealed handgun, you will face the universal problem of what to do with that pistol in the stall while your britches are down.
