Belgian Special Operations Command Pathfinders – Air Insertion Training

Belgium’s SOC Pathfinders have posted a couple of nice videos on their Facebook page of some Air Insertion Training in Slovenia and Morocco.

An interesting detail I picked up on while watching the videos in High Definition mode was that some of the guys are clearly wearing clothing from UF PRO in addition to their standard issue “Pizzaflage” camo uniforms.

US Army 1st Special Forces Command

On Sept. 30, the U.S. Army unceremoniously stood up a new headquarters—the 1st Special Forces Command—at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. The division-level unit brings together more than 15,000 Green Berets and other special troops in a single new organization…

The idea behind the new HQ is to assemble a force specifically tailored for dealing with what the Pentagon calls “hybrid warfare.”


The division-level headquarters will not include the unique planes and helicopters of the 160th Special Operation Aviation Regiment or the 75th Ranger Regiment’s elite infantry.

Battle of the Bullpups: Steyr AUG vs. FN 2000 vs. IWI TAVOR (and a little bit of Kel-Tec too)

Check out this video of Jerry “Fastest Trigger Finger in the World” Miculek putting 3 of the most popular bullpup rifles through their paces.  This is the most in-depth side-by-side comparison wev’e seen yet…


And in case, like me, you were disappointed that the bullpup siblings from Kel-Tec (the M43 and RDB) didn’t make it into the mix, you can check out this “First Impressions” article from The Firearms Blog and this excellent head-to-dead comparison of the RDB vs. Tavor over at Alloutdoor.

And maybe by this time next year Jerry will be able to add the Desert Tech MDR into the mix as well!
