Trijicon TA33G-H: Adding another option to the growing line of superior optics.

Trijicon TA33G-H ACOG

The Trijicon TA33G-H ACOGs have been out for a little bit and it seems to be growing in popularity.  Trijicon’s latest ACOG shares all the same characteristics of the TA33 series but with a green horseshoe reticule (the G in TA33 is for green, and the H designates the reticule).  Trijicon ACOGS are known for their optical clarity and almost indestructible durability and I have no reason to suspect otherwise with the new TA33G-H.

The horseshoe reticule is relatively new; however, they’re becoming increasingly popular for a combat reticule.  Just like other ACOG reticules it contains a BDC usually set for a standard military 5.56 NATO and 14.5 in barrel (although most models you see in the civilian market are set for a .223 through a 16″ barrel).  The horseshoe reticule function differs from other ACOG reticules for range estimation.  With the horseshoe reticule, the diameter of the circle represents 19″ at 150 yards, the open cut at the bottom of the circle represents 19″ at 300 yards, and each subsequent horizontal line on the BDC represents 19″ at that range (400, 500, then 600).

All ACOGs share a BDC; however, the uniqueness of the ranging aspects from the horseshoe reticule may just prove to be more battle worthy.  The actual circle at 100 yards fits nicely around an average human being’s head (it’ll be a tad bit wider since the full diameter of the circle is 12.6 MOA), where at 200 yards  it fits nicely around the target’s shoulders.  This makes targeting a human (which is what our Armed Forces do with their ACOG mounted weapons) much easier and faster.  On the battlefield I can easily see how the reticule could prove to be highly advantageous for a rapid neutralization the target at medium ranges.  Check out the full specs for the TA33G-H below.

Sig Sauer P250 2 Sum Pack

Many of us have a few handguns for multiple purposes.  One for primarily for home defense and another for concealed carry.  Well, Sig Sauer is reaching this market with the P250 2  Sum Pack.  Its a modular pistol system that comes with a full size frame, and either a compact or subcompact frame.  Each frame will share the same fire control assembly (so it has to removed and installed into the frame of choice), and each frame is serially matched.

The p250 is designed to be a completely modular system, so that ergonomics can be changed to suit a variety of shooters.  The slide release can be switched for a left handed shooter as well as the magazine catch, and a variety of grips are offered.

The system can be configured to be a  9mm, 40 S&W, or a .357 increasing the modular options; however, the .45 acp cannot be interchanged since it has a different magazine size.

With all the different options and configurations with the P250, you could come out with 64 different variations of the gun.  Depending on which system you get (full frame w/ subcompact vs compact and caliber) the prices range from $640 to $945.   All in all it seems like a very practicable pistol system for a lot of shooters needing two different roles for their firearm needs, but don’t want to dish out the dough for 2  pistols.
