The Dredge Report – 24 MAY 17

Breach-Bang-Clear News Team

Here are a few things we dredged up from yesterday, in case you missed ’em. Today you can look at some interesting updates in Guns, Gear, Outdoor, Knives, Optics, Learning, Training, Vehicles, and Apparel.


 Springfield XD catastrophic failure. Aaron Cowan of Sage Dynamics recently advised, “First catastrophic failure of the class. XD. This makes 20 catastrophic XD failures in just over 2 years of tracking handgun failures in classes. This particular XDS experienced an extractor failure that was not repairable. Extractor, grip safety, and trigger bar are the most common failures that render the gun unusable. This is why I don’t recommend the XD for anything, ever, anywhere.” That class later suffered a second failure.

 Flashpoint Trieste. One of our favorite organizations, Osprey Publishing, has several new books coming out. One is about the would-be Free Territory of Trieste, the Italian city that wishes to be a sovereign state. Trieste was a serious point of friction during the earliest days of the Cold War — it’s first year after WWII was like something from a spy novel. Read more in this blog post by the author.
