This medical marijuana strain is among the members of the popular ocean-family of strains. Larry OG was originally created in Orange County of California by crossing OG Kush with SFV OG. This is an indica hybrid strain that is featuring the entire lemon-pledge funk along with the vigor of the real Tahoe cut. In addition, there will be the hints of woodsy feel of SFV OG. The plant appears pale green colored cover with dark orange-red colored hairs thereby providing a visible contrast. The nugs are found to be small and dense and are having the edgy calyxes of OG Kush. The users of this strain say that Larry OG is giving out pungent as well as sweet and fresh aroma. The taste of the strain is similar to the smell and is sweet and tangy. The taste of this strain can be compared with that of a fresh orange. The laboratory testing of Larry OG showed that the strain has total THC, 0.1% CBN and 0.5% CBD. The higher THC content of this strain will be beneficial for people those who are seeking to improve their appetite. Moreover, this strain is known for creating body-high which will be great for alleviating body pain.
This homage to the comic book legend could turn even the Incredible Hulk into a mild-mannered everyman. It’s powerfully relaxing, with sativa-dominant genes (60:40 sativa/indica ratio) that deliver a massive dose of THC: Nearly 29% in some tests. That makes this a holy grail of sorts for patients seeking the strongest high. CBD contents, however, are low, so this is not an ideal choice for conditions that respond to that chemical. The head high is intensely euphoric, combined with strong creativity and a whole-body mood boost. Energy levels are high, making this a good daytime strain. Bruce Banner is a highly effective painkiller, but it’s also good for anxiety, depression, nausea, and sleeplessness. Dry mouth and bloodshot eyes are both common side effects, along with occasional paranoia and dizziness. The dominant flavor is sweet, with notes of citrus and a strong, pungent smell. The bud has a heavily frosted appearance due to a thick layer of resinous glands. It’s most popular in Colorado, Arizona, and Oregon, though it can be found elsewhere. Expect this strain to increase in popularity thanks to its high THC concentrations.

Millions of Americans choose to defend their families and homes with a firearm but doing so requires the right tool for the job. The new Daniel Defense DDM4 PDW pistol in .300 Blackout is a superior alternative to traditional handguns because it offers improved ballistics, capacity, accuracy and range in a package that is small enough and light enough for everyday carry. Whether at home, work, or play, the American-made Daniel Defense PDW is the last word in personal protection.
As of 2017, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) ruled that an AR-platform rifle with a short barrel and an arm brace did, in fact, meet the requirements of a pistol. In essence, the Daniel Defense PDW falls under the same classification as guns like the Smith & Wesson Shield and the Glock 19. Incidental shoulder contact when firing AR pistols is legal, and so the Daniel Defense can, in most areas, be carried as a concealed personal defense firearm. But the advantages of an AR pistol in .300 Blackout over conventional compact and subcompact 9mm and .45 ACP autoloading pistols are apparent. With both supersonic and subsonic ammunition, the .300 Blackout cartridge exceeds energy levels from a .45 ACP, and the capacity of an AR pistol far exceeds that of even a full-size semiauto striker-fired handgun. What’s more, with the use of an arm brace and an optic the PDW’s accuracy potential far exceeds that of a traditional handgun. The PDW is, simply put, a better defensive weapon than any traditional pistol.
The obvious advantage of AR pistols over carbines is reduced size. With its seven-inch barrel and a minimum overall length of 20 ¾ inches, the Daniel Defense DD4M PDW fits easily inside a backpack for concealed carry. That makes the PDW a more versatile defensive option than any AR carbine, and it still falls under the legal definition and protections of a handgun.
“I believe our new DDM4 PDW is the absolute best gun you can buy to protect your family,” says Daniel Defense President and CEO Marty Daniel. “And protecting our families is the most important thing any of us can ever do. It’s accurate, easy to shoot, and compact. I couldn’t be any prouder of this groundbreaking product.”
Daniel Defense firearms stand out in the crowded AR market because they’re built to the highest standards, and the DDM4 PDW is not exception. Both the upper and lower mil-spec receivers are CNC machined from 7075-T6 and the M16 profile, mil-spec MP tested bolt carrier group is chrome-lined and features a properly staked gas key. The low-profile gas block is CNC machined from 4140 hardened steel and features a mil-spec heavy phosphate coating. The PDW’s pistol-length direct impingement is designed to reliably run a variety of .300 Blackout ammunition.
The PDW’s 7-inch, S2W (Strength-to-Weight) profile cold hammer-forged barrel is made from chrome-moly vanadium steel. It’s chrome lined, mil-spec heavy-phosphate-coated and HP/MPI tested for unmatched durability. The PDW comes with a 1:7-twist barrel, which makes it ideal for shooting the full range of .300 BLK ammo, since it will stabilize the heaviest subsonic bullets yet provides superior performance with faster ammunition. The PDW runs supersonic and subsonic ammo with or without a suppressor.
It’s clear that Daniel Defense designed the PDW to be as shooter friendly as possible. The muzzle is topped with a Daniel Defense Linear Compensator that’s made from 17-4 PH stainless steel and salt-bath black nitride treated for maximum corrosion resistance, and it effectively channels muzzle blast away from the shooter. The MFR XL M-LOK handguard, which is made from CNC machined 6061-T6 aluminum and type III hard coat anodized, offers plenty of grip space on the gun as well as the convenience of M-LOK attachment points for adding lights and other accessories. PDW pistols also come with an SLR M-LOK MOD2 handstop that provides a safe and consistent hold point for the non-shooting hand.
Within the ranks of the U.S. Army are Personal Security Detachments (PSD) and High Risk Personnel (HRP) security teams that provide safe and timely transportation for command staff. These jobs require a constant state of readiness that encompass mission planning, vulnerability assessments, convoy escort, protection of principal dignitaries, and security in threatening environments. These soldiers take their jobs seriously, as they does of their gear.
On July 26, 2018, the Army’s Product Manager for Individual Weapons at Picatinny Arsenal reannounced the Sub-Compact Weapons (SCW) project that included the need for a new subgun, suppressor, magazines, tools and spare parts.
The Army determined HRP needed a small arm more capable than issued sidearms, but still concealable, and one that was handier than a rifle or carbine. It is unclear whether the HK MP5 and MP5K in inventory were worn out, or unavailable to meet demands, but the request went out for a submachine gun firing the 9mm round from a barrel length of 5½ inches or shorter. The overall length was specified at 15 inches or smaller with a collapsed stock and without a suppressor attached. It also had to weigh less than 7 pounds. Lastly, soldiers issued the SCW had to reliably put four out of five rounds within a 4-inch circle at less than 40 yards.
It was written that the SCW would have to include ambidextrous controls, selective fire and be finished a nonreflective black. The new subgun would have to perform optimally with 147-grain 9mm loads and function with marking or other training rounds such as frangible ammo. Why 9mm? The Army said that a 9mm SCW would ease the logistical strains that can result from having to supply exotic rounds.
The MPX was thought to be an easy win for SIG Sauer, and others had their eyes on the CZ EVO 3 Micro. It was also speculated that the Army could simply purchase an updated HK MP5 variant or Beretta’s PMX. The bid to win the $2.6-million contract for 350 guns (and up to 1,000) didn’t get much attention until the Army announced that B&T won the competition with its APC9K Pro.
“APC” is an acronym for “Advanced Police Carbine.” The “K” stands for “Kurz,” or “short,” and “B&T” is the shortened name for Brügger & Thomet of Switzerland. The APC9 was introduced to Europe in 2011 in 9mm, and was quickly engineered for .40 S&W and .45 ACP offerings. The standard model’s barrel length measured 7 inches and featured a right-side folding polymer stock. A carbine variant with a 16-inch barrel was also developed for the commercial market, as well as integrally suppressed models.
There was also an APC9/40 Pro model introduced in March 2019, which featured a non-reciprocating charging handle and a replaceable pistol grip that would accept AR-15-style grips. There is also a Pro model that features a lower receiver that feeds from Glock-pattern magazines. The APC9 is currently employed by nine nations.
