Butler Creek ASAP Magazine Loaders Highlight of NRA Show

 

Butler Creek ASAP AR15 Loader

OVERLAND PARK, Kansas – April 27, 2017 – Butler Creek, maker of smart, field-proven hunting and shooting accessories, announces the new ASAP Magazine loaders are now available. Come see them and learn why “Shooting USA” host John Scoutten has chosen these loaders as his go-to option at the Vista Outdoor booth (#2542) during the 2017 NRA Meetings and Exhibits Show in Atlanta, Georgia, April 27 to 30.
Available in Universal Single Stack, Universal Double Stack, AK-47/GALIL and AR15 magazine configurations these loaders are extremely easy to use and provide speed and relief from “shooter’s thumb.” The Universal Single Stack and Universal Double Stack ASAP loaders work with a large majority of common magazines between 9mm and .45 ACP (including .380 ACP for the Double Stack Loader).
“They are extremely easy to use,” said Butler Creek Product Manager Will Hemeyer. “Simply push the mag loader down, insert the round below the feed lips, and raise the loader up. The cartridge is seated and magazine loaded… just like that.”
The ASAP Universal AR15/M16 Mag Loader offers three ways to load MSR magazines—and none involve the user’s thumbs. Loose ammo can be loaded one round at a time with a simple click into place.
“Or, users can engage the loading arm to expedite the process,” Hemeyer said. “The loading arm can handle up to 10 rounds of loose ammo, or rounds held in a stripper clip. The rounds are locked into the mag with a quick push.”
Consumers can try the new loaders at the 2017 NRA Meetings and Exhibits Show in Atlanta, Georgia, April 27 to 30. Butler Creek brand ambassador John Scoutten will be on hand to answer questions. Scoutten is the producer and Emmy award nominee co-host of the Outdoor Channel’s “Shooting USA.” He also competes in multiple shooting events, including NRA Action Pistol, Steel Challenge and the Precision Rifle Series, among others. On Friday, April 28, Scoutten will host a product demonstration at 1 p.m. followed by a question-and-answer session at 1:30 at the Vista Outdoor booth (#2542).
Butler Creek, a Vista Outdoor brand, serves hunters and shooters, offering high-quality accessories such as gun slings, scope covers and more. Learn more at the updated
www.butlercreek.com. The site, which is being updated to coincide with the show, features product information as well as tips and a new design that is easier to navigate on all devices.

DoubleStar Debuts Four New Products at NRA Annual Meeting and Exhibits

The ARFX V2, the Big Timber Brake, the C39 Receiver Block and the C39 V2 Receiver Block will be on display at Booth #1110.

Winchester, Ky. (April 2017)DoubleStar Corp, manufacturers of high-quality, US-made AR components, rifles and pistols,will be debuting four new products at the2017 NRA Annual Meeting and Exhibits, being held in Atlanta, Georgia, April 27 – 30, 2017. These new products include the ARFX V2, the Big Timber Brake (BTB), the C39 Receiver Block and the C39 V2 Receiver Block. DoubleStar will be exhibiting at Booth #1110.

ARFX V2

The hard coat anodized ARFX V2 is a revised version of the popular original ARFX with seven QD sling points for the perfect sling configurations. There is no need for a threaded sling adapter as a standard push-button QD sling mount makes this skeleton stock ready for any sling, including single-point, two-point and three-point slings. Made from 7075 T6 aluminum and utilizing a standard rifle buffer tube make the ARFX V2 a lightweight (11.3 oz.) yet durable replacement for an original rifle stock. The stock measures 10″ without a recoil pad but does include a ½” rubber recoil pad which aids in softening recoil and gripping the shooter’s shoulder. The stock can also be built without the pad or with a 1″ recoil pad for those needing a slightly longer length of pull. The included closed cell foam overtube makes the ARFX V2 comfortable to shoot in any weather condition. MSRP $113.99.

Big Timber Brake

Weighing in at 4.8 oz. and measuring 3″ in length, the black nitride coated steel Big Timber Brake was designed to not only be an outstanding muzzle control device but also to eliminate the gap between 15″ handguards and 16″ barrels. The BTB is counterbored .75″ allowing the brake to slide over lightweight and HBAR sized barrels, giving the shooter’s rifle a smooth, clean appearance while virtually eliminating muzzle rise. The BTB is available in ½ x 28 tpi and 5/8 x 24 tpi allowing it to fit on most AR platform barrels. MSRP $99.99.

C39 Receiver Block

The C39 Receiver Block and C39 V2 Receiver Block have been added to the Ace Limited line of products. Made from 7075 T6 aluminum and hard coat anodized, the C39 Receiver Block will allow the shooter to mount any Ace Folding Mechanism and/or stock to a Century Arms C39 rifle, while the C39 V2 Receiver Block will do the same for a Century Arms C39V2 rifle. Multiple lengths and variations of stocks and folders are available from Ace and all are modular, creating endless options. MSRP for each receiver is $49.99.

Bushnell Announces New Best-In-Class Engage Optics Line at 2017 NRA Show

OVERLAND PARK, Kansas – April 27, 2017 – Bushnell, an industry leader in high-performance optical solutions for more than 65 years, announces a new line of high-quality, performance-driven optics for modern hunters and shooters. The new Engage riflescopes and binoculars represent the latest evolution in Bushnell optics.
“The Engage line is built to outperform all other comparable scopes and binoculars and completely dominate the elements,” said Curtis Smith Global Product Director for Bushnell. “The only sure thing about any environment is that it will change, but Engage optics were built from the inside out to deliver world-class performance every time, in every condition.”
Engage scopes and binoculars boast fully multi-coated glass that captures bright, clear images while preventing glare and actively repelling water, oil, dust and debris. The new
EXO Barrier is the absolute best protective lens coating technology Bushnell has ever developed. Added at the end of the coating process, EXO Barrier molecularly bonds to the lens and fills microscopic pores in the glass. The result is an ultra-slick coating that repels water, oil, fog, dust and debris. Rain, snow, fingerprints and dirt will not stick. Plus, the bonded coating will not fade from the passage of time or normal wear and tear.
Engage riflescopes feature a new look, upgraded features and a brand new Deploy MOA reticle that offers 1-MOA windage and elevation hashmarks. Dialing in these scopes is easier than ever with several configurations featuring Toolless Zero Reset Locking Turrets.
Available in nine configurations from 2-7x36mm up to 6-24x50mm, all Engage riflescopes feature Butler Creek Flip Caps, the new Deploy MOA Reticle and Bushnell’s new Ironclad Warranty. Five models feature a 1-inch tube and low-profile, capped elevation and windage turrets. An additional four models boast rugged 30mm tubes and the new Toolless Zero Reset Locking Turrets.
“Engage scopes offer a full suite of the modern features hunters and shooters are looking for,” said Greg Palkowitsh, Riflescope Product Manager. “The Deploy Reticle and Zero Reset Targets give shooters all the confidence they need for mid- to long-range shots.”
Adding to this best-in-class optic line, Engage also includes premium binoculars. Like the riflescopes, Engage binoculars are backed with the all-weather assurance of Bushnell’s exclusive EXO Barrier that repels dirt, debris, oil and moisture.
With four configurations from 8x42mm to 12x50mm, these stunning binoculars feature fully multi-coated optics to offer maximum brightness and clarity, and a lightweight and rugged chassis. ED Prime Glass ensures razor-sharp images while the PC-3 Phase Coating enhances resolution and contrast.
“The image is bright, clear and sharp thanks to ED Prime Glass and our dielectric phase-coated prisms,” said Steve Smith, Binocular Product Manager. “But these are rugged binoculars, too. The chassis is built to take a beating, and a locking diopter permanently secures the desired focus setting, so you can maintain focus and quickly engage what’s ahead.”
The new line will be unveiled at the 2017 NRA Meetings and Exhibits Show in Atlanta, Georgia, April 27 to 30. All attendees are encouraged to stop by the Bushnell booth (#2542) during the Show to visit their favorite celebrities and learn more about the Engage Optics line and all of the latest products offered by Bushnell.
“No matter which Engage you choose,” Curtis Smith added, “you’ll get best-in-class performance at no risk with the Bushnell’s new Ironclad Warranty. Dollar for dollar these optics will outperform every competitor!”
Bushnell, a Vista Outdoor brand, is one of the most recognizable and trusted names in precision hunting, tactical and recreational optics and accessories. For more information, visit

The Micro RONI® Stabilizer Brace Conversion Kit Now Legal to Shoulder and Fire.

Pompano Beach, Fla. (April 2017) – CAA, developers and manufacturers of advanced battle-tested firearms accessories, have received confirmation that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), Firearms Technology Industry Services Branch (FTISB) has determined that the “Stabilizing Brace” mounted on a semi-automatic pistol can now be lawfully shouldered and fired and is not classified as a “short-barreled rifle” as previously defined in the NFA, 26 U.S.C. § 5845(a) (3).

Announced just days ahead of the 146th National Rifle Associations’ Annual Meetings and Exhibitions held in Atlanta, Georgia, the classification is being heralded by CAA, CEO, Lt. Col. (IDF Ret.) Mikey Hartman, as a return to “common sense” firearms usage by responsible citizens of the United States.

“The Stabilizing Brace has been a great alternative for many disabled shooters and has provided a recourse for our injured vets to return successfully to a sport they love,” Lt. Col. (Ret. IDF) Mikey Hartman, CEO of CAA and Hartman Optics said. “The new ATF ruling is truly a common sense ruling in that many more people can now enjoy the flexibility the stabilizing brace offers, whether strapped to the arm or shouldered.”

The Micro RONI Stabilizer Brace conversion kit for Glock models has seen incredible press coverage. More end users embrace the ease of use and installation, improved handling and seriously improved accuracy out to 200 yards and beyond. “The Micro RONI is the fastest assembly and disassembly conversion kit on the market, as well as the most cost effective,” said Hartman.

No tools are needed to assemble and disassemble. The Micro RONI Stab is also available as an Advanced Kit which adds an integral 500 lumens flashlight, thumb rests, front and rear flip up sights, sling swivel and one point bungee style sling, giving the user added value.

MasterPiece Arms Introduces the MPA BA CZ-455 Chassis Youth Model

The MPA BA CZ-455 Youth Model Chassis is fully adjustable to grow along with your young shooter, providing a comfortable rifle for safe shooting.

Comer, Ga. – (April 2017)MasterPiece Arms (MPA), manufacturers of the MPA BA Rifles, Chassis Systems, Defender Pistols and Carbines, Suppressors and MPAR Rifles, is pleased to introduce the MPA BA CZ-455 Youth Model Chassis. The chassis was developed in response to many requests from MPA’s customers for a youth model of its popular MPA BA CZ-455 Chassis.

“So many of us learned to shoot with our dads, but dad’s rifle isn’t always the best fit for our kids. Youth shooters need a rifle that can grow with them; that’s why we’ve designed the MPA BA CZ-455 Youth Model Chassis to be fully adjustable. Your child will be able to shoot a rifle that’s just like dads, but be able to adjust and fit it to his or her body type, providing a comfortable and safe experience,” said Phil Cashin, president of MasterPiece Arms.

The youth model’s buttstock has a minimum length of pull of 10.5″ and can be extended all the way to 11.75″ when using the supplied youth model buttstock. When the standard BA Lite buttstock is used, it can extend from 13.5 – 14.75″ (BA Lite buttstock not included). The chassis is CNC machined to exacting tolerances from 6061 aluminum. MPA’s unique pocketing system reduces weight and increases the structural integrity of the chassis. At an astonishing 2.7 lbs. (with no recoil pad), the BA CZ-455 Youth Model Chassis provides a lightweight and adjustable platform for the CZ-455 barreled action.

The BA CZ-455 Youth Model Chassis provides young shooters with the ability to adjust the length of pull, cheek riser position, add side Picatinny rails or a night vision bridge, as well as increase the distance from the spigot mounted bipod to the rear support. The MPA produced buttstock includes an adjustable length of pull, recoil pad with height and cant adjustment, adjustable cheek riser and an adjustable monopod. The length of pull and cheek position are locked in place via a set of screws that are embedded into the buttstock body. It provides very strong lockup of the cheek riser plate and recoil plate assembly.

The BA monopod system can also be added along with the buttstock mounted bag rider attachment. The MPA bubble level system is included as standard equipment.

MPA BA CZ-455 Youth Model Chassis Specifications:

* V-Bedding System
* A2 Pistol Grip
* Lower Picatinny Rail
* Multiple QD Sling Swivel Locations
* Adjustable Length of Pull: 10.5 – 11.75″
* Adjustable Cheek Riser
* Built-in Bubble Level
* Machined Thumb Notch
* Adjustable Monopod Ready
* Spigot Mount Ready
* Side Rails Ready
* Weight: 2.7 lbs.
* MSRP: $649.99

The MPA CZ-455 Youth Model Chassis is available in black, burnt bronze, flat dark earth, gunmetal, marine red and tungsten. All chassis are Cerakoted in a multitude of colors. Solid colors are included. Custom Cerakote colors have a $135 upcharge.

When ordering, customers will need to select the barrel contour (profile) of the barrel that will be used in the MPA BA CZ-455 Youth Model Chassis. MPA makes every effort to get the product to the customer as quickly as possible. Please allow six to 10 weeks before delivery from date of order as these are hand built precision instruments and not production components.

Heckler & Koch Introduces The Striker Fired VP9SK

VP9-SK-FRONT-OBLIQUE-RIGHT-FEB-21-2017

Heckler & Koch’s eagerly anticipated striker fired subcompact debuts at the 2017 NRA Exhibition in Atlanta, Georgia. The VP9SK (9 mm) has all of the sought-after characteristics of the larger frame VP models but in a more compact design.

With a retail price of $719, the VP9SK continues HK’s trend of affordability in a superior quality handgun. The VP9SK is made in Germany and carries HK’s Lifetime Warranty.

A small-scale version of the completely adjustable VP grip feature -consisting of interchangeable backstraps and lateral grip panels -is present in the compact grip frame of the VP9SK. This allows the pistol to be easily modified to fit any individual user and is a feature found only on Heckler & Koch handguns. Molded finger grooves in the front of the pistol’s grip also instinctively position an operator’s hand for optimal shooting.

The highly-rated HK VP precision strike trigger is also part of the VP9SK. The VP trigger surpasses those found on competitors. It has a short, light take-up with a solid, single action break followed by a short positive reset. The result is trigger quality unmatched in most production striker fired pistols.

“The VP9SK is the right combination of compact size and firepower for a subcompact -and it’s loaded with unique HK features like our adjustable ergonomic grip -the only grip in the industry that can be customized to fit any shooter,” said Michael Holley, HK-USA Vice President for Commercial Sales and Marketing. “The VP9SK possesses the accuracy and durability that shooters know they can expect from a Heckler & Koch pistol.”

The VP9SK has all the features of the latest, state-of-the-art handgun. Every control is completely ambidextrous. Slide releases are present on both sides of the frame and the paddle style magazine release can be easily activated by left- or right-handed shooters.

HK’s patented charging supports, introduced on full size VP pistols, are also present on the VP9SK. The charging supports are simple, polymer inserts that are mounted on each side of the rear of the slide and provide better gripping leverage for racking the slide rearward. The charging supports speed reloading and make operating VP series handguns easier for shooters with reduced hand strength.

VP9SK pistols have an abbreviated Picatinny MIL-STD-1913 rail molded into their polymer frame for mounting lights and accessories. A proprietary captive flat recoil spring helps VP9SK pistols reduce the recoil forces affecting the operator and the handgun, improving shooter control during rapid firing and prolonging component life span.

VP9SK pistols can use a variety of proven HK magazines, including compact double stack 10-round with flat or hooked, ergonomic floorplates. New 13-round and 15-round magazines with magazine sleeves that replicate the grip profile of the full size VP will also be available later in the year.

VP9SK pistols are available and shipping now from HK’s Columbus, Georgia facility.

Vertx Announces its Fusion Stretch Tactical Pants

Tactical pants that offer all the function and performance prepared professionals demand while providing the ultimate in comfort and fit.

Cincinnati, Ohio (April 2017)Vertx, a leader in low-profile apparel and gear for the prepared professional, announces the release of its newest product, the Fusion Stretch Tactical Pants.

The Fusion Stretch Tactical Pants are the perfect storm of fit, function and comfort. While the Fusion Stretch Tactical Pants embrace classic Vertx features, such as the inset cargo pockets, a full gusset and articulated knees, they have been elevated with innovative features demanded by
today’s prepared professionals. These features include a durable, stretch PolyCotton fabric and VaporCore, powered by 37.5Technology, which keeps the wearer cool when it’s hot outside and evaporates moisture instead of wicking, allowing the pants to dry 5x faster than similar pants. The pants also feature 14 unique pockets, many of which are mesh-lined, which increases breathability and reduces weight. From range day to tactical operations, the Fusion Stretch Tactical Pants provide everything needed to maximize performance and stay comfortable.

“There’s no point in having ultra-functional and high-performing tactical pants if they’re too uncomfortable to wear and don’t move with your body. That’s why we’ve designed the Fusion Stretch Tactical Pants to provide ultimate comfort, functionality and fit. Once you try these on, you’ll never want to wear anything else,” said Darrell Morrow, vice president of Vertx.

Features:

1. Relaxed features like a side stretch waistband and a higher rise in the back to maintain proper fit.

2. Articulated back yoke with two convenient utility pockets.
3. Lower front hand pockets for easy access with or without a holster.

4. Vertical zippered pockets above cargo pocket for added storage and ease of access when sitting.

5. Fully gusseted crotch allows for extended comfort in virtually any position.

6. Angled back pockets for ease of access
and credential flaps to protect important items.

The Fusion Stretch Tactical Pants come in black, desert tan, khaki, navy and olive drab and will be available in a Men’s and Women’s cut. MSRP is $89.95. To learn more about Vertx, visit www.vertx.com.

Chromatra Displaying Color Night Vison Clip-on at 2017 NYTOA Tactical Conference

Chromatra, innovators in night vision technologies, will be showing the ColorTAC CVA-14 Color Night Vision Adaptor at Booth #218.

Beverly, Mass. (April 2017)  Chromatra, LLC, the innovator behind the design and manufacturer of real color capable night vision, will exhibit its new product, theColorTAC CVA-14, the affordable Clip-on technology that lets you see color through your existing PVS-14 night vision device, at Booth #218 at the NYTOA Tactical Conference, April 25-27, 2017 at the Turning Stone Resort in Verona, New York.

The NYTOA (New York Tactical Officers Association) Tactical Conference gives members of law enforcement, tactical units and crisis negotiation teams the opportunity to get together and exchange ideas and techniques, attend tactical courses, trainings and incident debriefings, as well as see the latest and greatest in law enforcement technology.

The ColorTAC CVA-14 easily clips on to any existing PVS-14 (product pictured may not represent final production version).

ColorTAC technology has gained widespread attention in the law enforcement, federal and military departments for its unique ability to negate the main disadvantage of current night vision gear (NVG): the “green glow.” This green monochromatic image prevents the NVG viewer from seeing critical visual information: color. Not being able to see color is a liability that can be potentially deadly. Without being able to see color, law enforcement personnel may not be able to properly assess the scene and make correct decisions; military medics may have difficulty telling blood from water, oil or other fluids, and thus may make mistakes in triage priorities; officers can have difficulty navigating terrain. In addition, seeing color can reduce the fatigue and visual distortion green monochromatic night vision can cause.

Chromatra, LLC, established in 2014, is the first company to credibly develop the ColorTAC technology which when used in conjunction with any of the over 1-million night vision devices already on the market today, provides the user with, simply, a color image at night. For those who rely on NVG’s to perform their mission, the ability to See What’s Missing can be the difference between life and death.

The ColorTAC CVA-14 unit operates in extreme environments, is easily deployable, lightweight, exceeds market battery life requirements and is very affordable. The unit folds up quickly and compactly for storage or transportation and takes just seconds to attach to any existing PVS-14-green or white phosphor.

Truck as seen through traditional Night Vision Gear, result is “green glow.”
Truck now visible as a Red Truck seen through the addition of the CVA-14 ColorTAC adaptor.

WHY WE SHOULD BE INTERESTED IN THE FRENCH ELECTIONS

Image result for arch de triumph

The founding of the European Union on November 1, 1993, Maastricht, Netherlands was a great achievement in concept. The creation of a common market, with open trade and with a common currency eliminating foreign currency translation complications. However, over time and through regulations advanced by unelected officials, the EU Commission began to centralize power usurping the sovereignty and national identity of its 28 member nations. This movement led to BREXIT and is now confronted by French voters.

In the preliminary elections, the French have chosen wisely, and we congratulate two excellent candidates Marine Le Pen and Emmanuel Macron; both candidates will faceoff on May 7th. Although Monsieur Macron is certainly capable, his pro EU position has garnered far left support; this is the same far left wing who is all too happy to expand Brussel’s continued encroachment.  Marine Le Pen from our perspective is the French voters best chance to regain their national sovereignty and national identity.

It’s unquestionable that France’s ability to regain control of its borders, sovereignty and economy will benefit France, the United States and her trading partners.

French:

La fondation de l’Union européenne le 1er novembre 1993, Maastricht, aux Pays-Bas, a été une réussite majeure. La création d’un marché commun, avec des échanges ouverts et une monnaie commune éliminant les complications de la conversion des devises étrangères. Cependant, avec le temps et par des règlements avancés par des fonctionnaires non élus, la Commission européenne a commencé à centraliser le pouvoir usurpant la souveraineté et l’identité nationale de ses 28 pays membres. Ce mouvement a conduit à BREXIT et est maintenant confronté aux électeurs français.

Lors des élections préliminaires, les Français ont choisi judicieusement, et nous félicitons deux excellents candidats Marine Le Pen et Emmanuel Macron; Les deux candidats se disputeront le 7 mai. Bien que M. Macron soit certainement capable, sa position pro-européenne a gagné le soutien de l’extrême gauche; C’est la même extrême gauche qui est trop heureuse d’étendre l’empiétement continu de Brussel. Marine Le Pen de notre point de vue est que les électeurs français ont le plus de chance de retrouver leur souveraineté nationale et leur identité nationale.

Il est incontestable que la capacité de la France à reprendre le contrôle de ses frontières, de sa souveraineté et de son économie profitera à la France, aux États-Unis et à ses partenaires commerciaux.

Bonne chance à Marine Le Pen et Emmanuel Macron

MasterPiece Arms’ New Enhanced Vertical Grip (EVG) Assists Trigger Control

The new grip for the MPA BA Chassis System includes an enlarged palm swell, trigger finger support rest and an enhanced thumb notch.

Comer, Ga. – (April 2017)MasterPiece Arms (MPA), manufacturers of the MPA BA Rifles, Chassis Systems, Defender Pistols and Carbines, Suppressors and MPAR Rifles, is pleased to introduce its new injection molded Enhanced Vertical Grip (EVG), designed specifically for the MPA BA Chassis System.

“At MPA we care about the needs of precision shooters. In fact, the idea for this grip came directly from a suggestion that David Preston, last year’s PRS Champion, gave me at a match.  David’s idea was that having a grip that extended to support your trigger finger would help the shooter have better trigger control and a smoother trigger pull when he finds himself in an improvised or unnatural shooting position. I took his suggestion to heart, mocked up the design, created a working prototype and then tested it out and it worked!” said Phil Cashin, president of MPA.

The grip design includes a true vertical interface with the rifle, an enlarged palm swell, trigger finger support rest and an enhanced thumb notch. In addition, the grip comes with MPA’s special grip tape for improved contact. The interface with the rifle is a standard A2 Type, which means the grip, with potential minor modifications, should be able to fit onto other rifles, carbines and chassis’ that utilize an A2 grip. Because the grip is a solid injection molded component, its strength and integrity will not be sacrificed when modified by polishing, grinding, sanding or other forms of modification. The EVG is available in right-handed configurations in black and will be standard on all new rifles and chassis systems. MSRP is $39.95.

North Korea And The Trump Tax Return Extravaganza

Image result for kumsusan palace of the sun

It’s Friday and time for our weekly shoot the shit topic.We hope you’ve all had a productive week and looking forward to an even better weekend. So, without further a do, let me jump right into the soup and I’ll kick it off with North Korea.

“A Super Mighty Preemptive Strike?” North Korea reminds me of a shipmate. There’s no delicate way for me to share this true story but I’ll make every effort to keep it civil.

While on liberty, he met a woman, and after several hours of chatting and cocktails she decides to take him home. I assume that in an effort to arouse her, he looked into her eyes and told her that he would fornicate her brains out. While copulating, he felt a gentle tapping on the top of his head. He then noticed that she was using a pencil to tap on his head. At first he thought this was a technique to break his concentration increasing his stamina; however, after asking why she was doing that, she responded saying: “if you are fornicating my brains out, I’m beating your brains out.” North Korea is like that shipmate!

The very best thing that could happen to Pyongyang, is a display that they’ve been able to back down the United States of America. Our media’s incessant quest for  strategy information from our administration may very well achieve that; it is precisely what Pyongyang wants to see. North Korea, has a large military that’s big in numbers but short on capabilities and they are a huge liability to the Chinese government as it tries to establish itself as a responsible major power in the Pacific Region.

The United States and its allies have the capability to launch concurrent conventional strikes that would leave North Korea, without missiles, airfields, fuel and tanks, and it would be a colossal error in judgment for Pyongyang to move against South Korea. If you’ve seen the film Blazing Saddles what North Korea is doing is placing a gun to its own head saying don’t move or I’ll shoot my regime.

Image result for Tax returnOn Donald J Trump’s Tax Returns, there is no legal requirement for a Presidential candidate or President to disclose past years tax returns. The fact that prior Presidents have done so is irrelevant. So, why is there a rabid outcry for Donald Trumps Tax returns? The Democrats are hoping they can find something they can leverage against President Trump misinforming its constituents and activists who are largely uninformed.

Donald Trump made his fortune in real estate developments, projects that run in the millions of dollars. Financing of these projects generally involve multiple lenders and/ or investors. In order to mitigate risk, lenders may only take a portion of the required funding. For example, on an $500 million project, Wells Fargo may agree to a $50 million participation, Chase may do nothing because their portfolio already has too much commercial development exposure etc., so a borrower needs to look for financing sources on the global economy to secure the $500 million requirement. Putting together a large project financing package could involve Middle East, European, Chinese and Russian financial institutions. These financing activities are routine. Suggesting a conflict of interest exists because a Chinese bank has a $250 million loan on a Trump property is a misrepresentation at best. Democrats know this; they also know that the majority of their audience is uninformed or not at all informed and thus can not independently evaluate what they’re being fed. Any financial activity that the Trump enterprise was engaged in is BAU (business as usual). Using business deductions, put in place by Congress over the years,  to reduce a tax liability is legal. Would you give up your homeowner exemption so that you can pay more in taxes? No! And while we’re at it, what business is it of the Democratic Party, or any other political party and the media, what an individual or business does for charitable organizations?

So, I get back to the original question, specifically what are you looking for in Trump’s tax returns?

Our First Amendment is one of the great defining liberties of our magnificent Republic but I honestly don’t think the Founders ever anticipated this many morons. It’s unbelievable and counterproductive!

Have a dynamite weekend! Enjoy some quality time with your buds and family, or get to those projects around the house.

Ritter & Stark Rifles Now Carried by EuroOptic.com

EuroOptic.com, a leading online distributor for high performance firearms and optics for sportsmen, police and military, is first US distributor to carry the Ritter & Stark SX-1 Modular Tactical Rifle models and accessories.

Feistritz, Austria (April 2017) – Ritter & Stark GmbH, an Austrian-based firearms design and manufacturing company, is proud to announce EuroOptic.com, a large online retailer of fine optics and firearms from the leading manufacturers, to be the first US distributor for the SX-1 Modular Tactical Rifle, conversion kits and accessories.  The SX-1 Modular Tactical Rifle (MTR), which has received major media attention since it’s unveiling at the 2017 SHOT Show, is now available in three calibers, along with Ritter & Stark conversion kits and accessories all at http://www.eurooptic.com.

“Partnering with EuroOptic.com was a natural for Ritter & Stark,” Yakov Trakhman, marketing director for Ritter & Stark said. “EuroOptic’s primary focus is to carry high-performance products for the discerning customer and the SX-1 MTR undoubtedly fits that criteria.”

The SX-1 MTR long-range precision rifle is now available in .308 Win, .300 Win Magnum and .338 Lapua Magnum and 20″, 24″ and 27″ barrel lengths at EuroOptic.com. EuroOptic.com also offers Ritter & Stark conversion kits for the quick caliber change between any of the three available calibers.

Conversion kits contain a Ritter & Stark barrel with Picatinny rail and a bolt face for conversion of most calibers. The .308 Win converting to a .300 Win (24″) and .300 Win/.338 LM (20″) conversion kits include the Picatinny railed barrel, bolt face and a magazine adapter. The .300 Win Mag/.338 LM 24″ conversion to a .308 Win include Picatinny railed barrel, magazine adapter, bolt face and a 10 round magazine. Other accessories available at EuroOptic include magazine adapters, bolt heads, Picatinny rails, muzzle break, forend handguard with M-LOK, tactical sling and a hard transport case with a customized insert for the SX-1 MTR and accessories and the Spuhr Scope Mount Assembly, recommended by Ritter & Stark.

What sets the SX-1 MTR apart from other long-range precision rifles are several well thought out and executed design features such as having the MIL-STD 1913 Picatinny rail installed directly on the barrel, thus allowing the user to interchange barrels with pre-set scopes without a loss of zero within minutes. The patented caliber conversion system assures that the barrel is precisely positioned in the machined aluminum receiver, allowing for a greater area of contact, resulting in increased stability. The bolt also locks directly into the barrel breech, which gives the SX-1 MTR unprecedented accuracy.

The SX-1 MTR’s accuracy is a result of Ritter & Stark’s proprietary rifling process. This process extends barrel life, ensures uniformity throughout all barrels produced and most of all, benefits the user with superior performance and accuracy.

ATF Releases 2016 Summary of Firearms Reported Lost and Stolen from FFLs

 

Firearm

WASHINGTON – The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), the federal agency responsible for investigating instances where firearms are lost or stolen from federal firearms licensees (FFL), is releasing its Calendar Year (CY) 2016 FFL Thefts/Loss Report, available on the ATF website, www.atf.gov. Part of the ATF core mission is to protect the public from violent crime involving the use of firearms, including firearms stolen from FFLs and used by violent offenders in the commission of crimes, posing a substantial threat to the public and law enforcement.

A total of 18,394 lost or stolen firearms were reported nationwide last year from FFLs. Of those firearms, 9,113 were reported as lost. Firearms are considered lost when an FFL takes a firearm into its inventory and later cannot account for the disposition of the firearm from its inventory during an inventory reconciliation.

We encourage all residents to get involved and assist us in our goal of reducing crime in our neighborhoods by anonymously submitting information through our new ATF Tips app (Android and iOS), visiting the reportit website, submitting an anonymous form, or by reaching out to your local field office. Give us a call and let us know what we can do for you.

What You Need To Know About A Nuclear Blast

Image result for Nuclear CloudI’m seeing quite a few ads promoting prepper products showing the dreaded bright mushroom cloud. Prepping is not a bad thing, one never knows what mother nature will throw at you, but you need to balance it out with a dose of reality; speaking quite frankly, no one is starting a nuclear war so if you’re voting in Atlanta tomorrow vote Republican. However, In the unlikely event that North Korea chooses to launch a nuclear strike, it will most likely be against South Korea or Japan but rest assured that South Korea and Japan have sufficient assets to destroy an incoming North Korean missile.

But what if?

A nuclear blast of varying proportions relies on immense heat and the shock wave to do most of the damage. Radiation is a byproduct of that detonation. There are two types of radiation emitted by rudimentary nuclear weapons; gamma radiation and alpha radiation. Gamma radiation comes from a very fast moving subatomic particle. It penetrates clothing and when you’re radiated by a sufficient amount it can be lethal or have lasting deleterious effect. There is no good news for gamma radiation, also called ionizing radiation, exposure and the best way to escape it is by shielding, usually lead, or find a body of water and submerge yourself – note that in the blast zone water will vaporize. However, gamma radiation is short-lived and does not extend beyond 2 to 3 miles from the blast point. An air blast (just above the atmosphere) will increase the effect of gamma radiation.

Alpha radiation comes from what we normally refer to as nuclear fallout. Alpha radiation is slow moving and will not penetrate skin or clothing. The danger with alpha radiation, which takes active decontamination to get rid off, is that it’s relatively persistent in the absence of decontamination and can readily be ingested through feeding and breathing. Wearing a surgical mask, latex gloves and washing everything that you come in contact with will keep you safe.

Should North Korea use an air blast, alpha contamination can be spread throughout the Pacific basin through prevailing winds that are generally westerly. Samoa, Guam, Philippines and the Hawaiian Islands are at risk of nuclear fallout. Depending on weapon size and how high the detonation occurs, the United States West Coast could see some amount of fallout.

I wouldn’t start building that underground bunker just yet!

CBS Employee Relocation Program

It’s been very clear that all of the mainstream media is in the tank for the Democrats; it would be extraordinary if that blind allegiance were based on some measurable metric or even a logical and fact supported subjective analysis, but it’s not. Of all of the organizations, CBS has displayed a modicum of professionalism. So what do you do with a guy like John Frederick Dickerson?

dickerson

Readers will recall that Mr. Dickerson was the journalist who said President Obama would decimate the Republican Party. As we can now see, Mr. Dickerson is certainly not clairvoyant, so guessing body weight for $5 a try is out of the question. We’re not suggesting that CBS fire the man, but there certainly is something he could do…

WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?

It’s Friday and time for our shoot the shit topic. A shoot the shit is an event where participants talk about anything and everything that comes to mind whether they know anything about it or not.  Shoot the shits are recognized for their high therapeutic value. Our rules are very simple, anyone can participate, make unsupported comments, use uncensored profanity, insult anyone you wish or change the subject all together. Even better, is the fact that you won’t have to pay $300 per hour to a jackass that became a behavioral “scientist” because they wanted to understand themselves. So without further a do….

Is there anyone out there that’s not completely convinced that we are hosed?

  1. We have a media who thinks the sarin gas attacks in Syria could be a Russian conspiracy  to help President DJ Trump’s popularity after the Tomahawk strikes on Al Shayrat Air Base. Really?  Then you have Chris Matthews on Mr. Trumps lack of U.S. History knowledge. More specifically, Chris Matthews expounds on President Trump’s lack of understanding of past U.S. history and how it could impact foreign policy decisions today. Sure Chris, please tell me how the Louisiana Purchase could form North Korea policy. Chris hasn’t oxygenated his brain in so long that it no longer qualifies as living tissue.
  2. We also find ourselves facing the very real prospect that Kim Jong-un, who we have nicknamed Mini-Me with a bad haircut, could launch a nuclear strike. Here’s a supreme leader, who whacked his uncle and whacked his brother when he should have shot his barber, with ICBMs and nuclear warheads. If you’ve watched the videos of Kim Jong-un launching multiple rockets, it looks like the Japanese attacks on Mathra. I don’t want you to worry too much about this because it’s highly probable that he can’t deliver a warhead to the United States but he could readily hit South Korea or Japan. That bad news for those countries but since prevailing winds are westerly, California could expect to see a significant amount of fallout from a air detonation. Naturally there would be retaliation which would certainly be a waste of some pretty good looking North Korean chicks.
  3. Moving on to Syria, we have Al Assad denying the latest chemical attack and actually suggesting that the dead and dying children could have been actors. It takes remarkable cruelty to make a statement like that.

So what the hell is happening readers? Well, we think it’s the secret CIA Space Portal in Malibu, Speaking of the CIA, I was extremely proud of Director Pompao who stop short of calling Julian Assange a cocksucker.

Have a great Easter weekend readers and do let us hear from you. Remember to keep sweat pumps in low speed.
