Read RYP's "Killing Isis" Article in RECOIL Magazine - Out Now

January 31, 2019

"My driver moves slowly through the blasted empty streets of Sirte, Libya.  Here, in this once prosperous coast town, home to Gaddafi and now ISIS, it's difficult to tell friend from foe.  

Bullet-pocked and bomb-shattered buildings seem empty.  Clusters of fighters in plain-clothes wave while armored bulldozers roar by.

As we creep toward the ocean, as far as the walls of shipping containers and earthen berms allow us, a familiar crack of Dragunov bullet splits the air.  My driver stops dead the middle of an exposed intersection, somehow wondering if it was friend or foe.

Fighters under cover wave us to get the hell out of the street."

In RECOIL Magazine's latest issue (#41), DPx Gear's founder, Robert Young Pelton discusses the many details and individuals involved in the effort to eradicate ISIS.

Dive inside and read first hand experiences from RYP's trip to Libya and learn more about America's military and their role in the fight from 2006 to now.
