NSSF Welcomes Federal Court’s Dismissal of Case Against Firearms Manufacturers

October 10, 2019

NSSF The Firearms Industry Trade Association

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The National Shooting Sports Foundation® (NSSF®) welcomes the U.S. District Court, Southern District of Ohio Eastern Division’s dismissal with prejudice of the Primus Group v. Smith & Wesson, et. al. case. The decision was delivered Oct. 9, brushing aside the frivolous claims against several AR-15 firearms manufacturers, including Smith & Wesson, Remington Arms Company, Sig Sauer, Sturm, Ruger & Company, Colt’s Manufacturing and Armalite.

“This decision by the federal judge to dismiss with prejudice this frivolous case is pleasing, if not unexpected,” said Lawrence G. Keane, NSSF Senior Vice President of Government Relations and Public Affairs and General Counsel. “These are lawful and federally-regulated AR-15 modern sporting rifle manufacturers that make semiautomatic rifles for lawful purposes. The judge was absolutely correct to assert that the proper venue to establish public firearms policy is through the legislature and not the courts.”

Primus Group, LLC, is an entertainment venue in Columbus, Ohio. The limited liability company filed suit after the tragic murders in El Paso and Dayton, Ohio. They claimed racketeering, intentional misrepresentation claims and “a clear and present danger” of all American lives due to “assault weapons.” The modern sporting rifles manufactured and sold by the companies named as defendants are semiautomatic rifles, meaning one round is fired for each trigger pull.

The court found the plaintiffs had no standing to bring the case against the defendants. This decision rightfully asserts that those who purposefully and criminally misuse firearms are the ones who are responsible for those crimes. It further affirms that activist lawsuits to prompt judicial action are not the proper avenue to establish policy.

About NSSF

The National Shooting Sports Foundation is the trade association for the firearms industry. Its mission is to promote, protect and preserve hunting and the shooting sports. Formed in 1961, NSSF has a membership of thousands of manufacturers, distributors, firearms retailers, shooting ranges, sportsmen’s organizations and publishers nationwide.

RCBS Introduces Its Fastest and Most Accurate Powder Dispenser – The MatchMaster.

 

MatchMaster Powder Dispenser. Precision 0.04 Grain Accuracy with Dual Tube Dispensing Technology.

MatchMaster_98941_Ad_July2019OVERLAND PARK, Kansas – October 10, 2019 – RCBS, the leading manufacturer of ammunition reloading equipment for rifles and pistols, announced today that it has released the company’s fastest and most accurate powder dispenser with the launch of the new RCBS MatchMaster. Featuring precise 0.04 grain consistent measurements and a new patent pending dual tube dispensing technology for enhanced speed, the new RCBS Matchmaster saves users precious time on the reloading bench while promoting maximum accuracy.

Among its many design enhancements, the one-piece Matchmaster unit features an LCD touchscreen display that is Bluetooth compatible with the new RCBS app. This exclusive compatibility provides complete user control to calibrate scales and dispense powder in auto or manual modes. With pre-configured powder types readily accessible, handloaders now have the ability to create and or modify their own customized powder configurations in order to easily fine tune their favorite loads.

Through the MatchMaster’s patent pending dual tube dispensing technology, the dispenser is capable of delivering quick charges, each delivering between 0.10 and 0.04 grain accuracy every time. This consistency allows handloaders to obtain the most reliable performance possible while promoting confidence in each individual round.

The MatchMaster delivers charges in two mode configurations: Standard mode and Match mode. Standard mode drops charges to 0.10 grain accuracy in under 20 seconds while the Match mode drops charges to 0.04 grain accuracy. Other standard features include a patent-pending Bottom Drain function with Open Drain Alert. This exclusive combination ensures users will never experience unwanted powder on their bench when filling the dispenser.

“The new RCBS Matchmaster has taken powder dispensing and weighing to the next level,” said Will Hemeyer, Sr. Product Line Manager for RCBS. “With its user adjustable powder settings, Bluetooth compatibility, and revolutionary dual tube dispense technology, the Matchmaster reduces reloading time and simplifies the entire operation all while maintaining zero impact to charge accuracy.”

Air Venturi and Steambow Announce Strategic Partnership

Air Venturi

 

New Collaboration Brings the Best of Archery, Airguns together

CLEVELAND, OHIO (October 10, 2019)  Air Venturi, a leading manufacturer and importer of airguns and airsoft guns is pleased to announce its partnership with Steambow GmbH, a leading manufacturer of innovative crossbows.

“We’re excited to be expanding the “power of air” to the archery industry with the Steambow / Air Venturi partnership.  We introduced bolt-shooting air powered hunting rifles under the Seneca line as our first step into the archery.  Now, as we partner with Steambow, and their innovative line of crossbows, we’re excited to continue our expansion to provide retailers and hunters something new and exciting,” says Scott Stevens, Air Venturi’s National Sales Manager.

Steambow found the perfect partner in Air Venturi.  Air Venturi’s unparalleled expertise of precharged pneumatic airguns and “everything air” makes them ideal to bring Steambow’s innovative products to the US,” stated Gerald Missbach, CEO of Steambow GmbH.

First to be released is the ONYX, the industry’s first and only one-push cocking (OPC) crossbow.  The ONYX features collapsible limbs for easier transport and an arrow speed of up to 330 fps.  But the biggest differentiator is the one-push cocking system powered by a refillable high-pressure air tank – a simple touch of a button can cock and decock the unit, thus erasing the safety concerns associated with a traditional crossbow.  With traditional crossbows, hunters need to carry them fully cocked and ready to fire.  With the ONYX, one can automatically cock the crossbow when they need it…immediately before shooting!

For additional information on the Steambow line from Air Venturi, contact Air Venturi Marketing Manager, Kristen Coss by phone: 216-292-2570 ext. 253 or email:kristen.coss@airventuri.com. Steambow GmbH contact: Chase Rohlfsen, President Rubline Marketing by phone: 319-488-6879 or by email: chase@rublinemarketingcorp.com.

Big Horn Armory Celebrates the U.S. Navy’s Birthday with Special Promotion

All new rifle purchases made from Big Horn Armory between Oct. 13 – 20, 2019, will receive a complimentary Navy Core T-Shirt with their order.

Cody, Wyo. (October 2019)Big Horn Armory (BHA), makers of big-bore firearms, is celebrating the United States Navy’s 244th birthday on Oct. 13, 2019, by rolling out a special promotion. Any new BHA rifle purchased directly from the website between Oct. 13 – 20, 2019, will receive a complimentary Navy Core T-shirt with their purchase.

The U.S. Navy, originally known as the Continental Navy at its founding on Oct. 13, 1775, consisted of a small fleet of ships patrolling to intercept ships sent to resupply British Army troops at or near the colonies. The creation of the fleet was hotly debated for 11 days by the Continental Congress. Naval Operations Admiral Elmo Zumwalt in 1972 declared official recognition of the holiday to honor all who have served in a Navy uniform, past and present. Today, the Navy’s birthday is celebrated in many different ways throughout the U.S. and the world, including the annual U.S. Navy Birthday Ball.

About Big Horn Armory:

Big Horn Armory was founded in 2008 with the expressed intention of designing a Browning-type lever-action gun chambered in 500 Smith & Wesson Magnum. The Big Horn Armory Model 89, made in America, closely follows the work of John Browning with refinements courtesy of modern metallurgy and machining capabilities. The first rifles began shipping in September of 2012 and since then, BHA has added to their big bore lineup with a Model 90 Carbine in 460 S&W, the Model 90A in 454 Casull, the Model 90B in .45 Colt, the Model 89A in 500 Linebaugh and the Model 89B in .475 Linebaugh. In 2017, Big Horn Armory took a departure from its lever-action series and developed the AR500 Auto Max, the most powerful short-range, semi-auto based on an AR .308 platform.

Winchester Repeating Arms Adds True Timber Strata to the XPR Line

 

Winchester XPR Hunter Strata

 

October 10, 2019— The new XPR® Hunter TrueTimber® Strata™ bolt-action rifle from Winchester Repeating Arms offers versatile concealment and a stunning appearance in an accurate, value-driven package.

The XPR Hunter TrueTimber Strata has an eye for accuracy with the features to back it up. The adjustable M.O.A. Trigger is a three-lever design that offers zero creep, zero take-up and zero overtravel with the advantage of a crisp, light pull. The high-quality chromoly steel barrel is button rifled and thermally stress relieved. A target-style crown protects the rifling at the muzzle. The steel action is through-hardened and includes a steel recoil lug that prevents twisting in the stock under recoil and is precision bedded to ensure the barrel is free-floating. The rigid, full-diameter bolt body is Nickel Teflon® coated for smooth operation and the short, 60° bolt lift easily clears optics.

The action, barrel and bolt handle are coated with tough, corrosion-resistant Perma-Cote™ finish in flat dark earth color that adds concealment and complements the TrueTimber Strata camouflage finish on the stock.

The advanced polymer stock is equipped with textured panels that enhance wet weather grip. A flattened fore-end profile provides added stability when shooting from sandbags or a rest.

The XPR Hunter TrueTimber Strata comes in 13 popular calibers from 243 Win. to 338 Win. Mag. — including the Winchester 350 Legend. Barrel lengths are 22″ for short action calibers, 24″ for short magnum and standard long action rounds and 26″ for magnum calibers. The XPR Hunter TrueTimber Strata sells for an MSRP of $599.99.

Features:

  • M.O.A. Trigger System
  • Bolt unlock button
  • Nickel Teflon® treatment on bolt body
  • Detachable box magazine
  • Composite stock with TrueTimber® Strata camo finish

Where Did Lithium-Ion Batteries Come From?

Thank God it’s Friday! We made it through another week. Anyone out there tired of the impeachment extravaganza? I think these poor bastards think that we’ll get sick of hearing about it and get turned off towards Donald J Trump. Have I got news for them! There are life long Democrats switching parties in my neck of the woods. However, it does take a toll on you so you may be thinking about seeing a therapist. STOP!

A therapist is someone who studied psychology so they could understand themselves. There’s also a very good chance they couldn’t pass the MCAT (Medical College Admissions Test). A therapist will charge you $150+ per hour for something you can do free of charge through a good shoot the shit. What’s a shoot the shit?

A shoot the shit is a social interaction during which any topic is up for discussion. Participants don’t need to know anything about the topic being discussed, make any statements or assertions without providing support for their opinions, use uncensored profanity, insult anyone they wish or change the subject.

So, let’s shoot the shit.

We often go through life taking things for granted, things like the lithium-ion battery, which is now common place.

I read an outstanding article, in the Wall Street Journal, where they identified U.S. engineer John B. Goodenough, M. Stanley Whittingham of the U.K. and Akira Yoshino of Japan as the lithium-ion battery inventors. The three scientists received the Nobel Prize for Chemistry, and will split a $906,000 prize awarded by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.

Image result for 1991 lithium-ion battery

Sony Corp. was first to commercialize the lithium-ion battery in the early 1990s, followed by a joint venture of Asahi Kase i Corp., which Dr. Yoshino is affiliated with, and Toshiba Corp.

Without the work of these three distinguished scholars we would not have weapon mounted lights, NVGs, laser sights, Thermal Imagers, red dot sights, external power packs, aircraft fires and automobile explosions. All kidding aside their work ushered in a new era of self-contained power subsystems.

Impeach, Impeach, Impeach …

tenor (1)[5]

This impeachment movement has possessed the Democrat Congress. It’s mindboggling! Here’s how we are being floor-flushed. The possessed House Democrats without a shred of evidence are alleging :

  1. The President has abused his power.
  2. The President has obstructed justice.

My question to those allegations is tell me specifically who, what, where and when Presidential power was abused or justice obstructed. Support your allegations! They can’t, this entire charade is designed to convince an electorate that does not know what obstruction of justice or abuse of power is, but it sounds bad.

This week our favorite Congressional luminary, Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez, went on record calling for an end to jails and incarceration.

AOC said on Twitter:

“Mass incarceration is our American reality. It is a system whose logic evolved from the same lineage as Jim Crow, American apartheid, & slavery. To end it, we have to change. That means we need to have a real conversation about decarceration & prison abolition in this country.”

Folks, it’s hard to imagine someone as imbecilic as Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez, truly remarkable!

Image result for Ocasio-cortez stupid looks

Have a great weekend, be happy, be safe, keep the sweat pumps in low speed and do spend some quality time with your buds and family.

Helix 6 Precision and Savage Rifles

Vancouver, WA ( Oct. 9, 2019) -Changing the barrel on a Savage 10/110-series rifle is quick, easy and only requires a few tools. Helix 6 Precision’s pre-fit Savage barrels allow self-installation-without using a lathe-of four popular long-range and hunting cartridges. Each of our Savage barrels features a hand lapped button-rifled 416R stainless steel core wrapped in carbon fiber using our proprietary process. The final product is a precision rifle barrel that delivers outstanding accuracy and performance. At Helix 6 Precision, we build the world’s ultimate pre-fit barrels for Savage rifles.

All Helix 6 Precision barrels are proudly 100% made in the USA. Every Savage barrel is built using a match-grade 416R stainless steel core. We then wrap the Savage barrel with our proprietary carbon fiber layup-our design dampens barrel harmonics for outstanding accuracy. Button rifling and hand lapping improve accuracy while minimizing fouling.

Savage pre-fits come in a variety of chambers. The four most popular calibers are 6.5 Creedmoor, 7mm Remington Magnum, 308 Winchester, and 300 Winchester Magnum. The 7mm Rem Mag, 300 Win Mag, and 6.5 CM feature a 26-inch barrel while the 308 Win features a 24-inch barrel. The 30 caliber barrels use a 1:10 twist and while the 6.5 mm and 7mm have faster 1:8 twist barrels. Its straight taper contour weighs about 2¾-pounds! We cut industry-standard 5/8-24 muzzle threads on all our Savage pre-fit barrels for easy installation of an aftermarket muzzle brake or suppressor.

Installing a Helix 6 Precision carbon fiber barrel on your Savage rifle is simple. All that’s needed is a Savage barrel nut wrench, a barrel vice with inserts and a cartridge-specific headspace gauge (no-go and go). If this is beyond your comfort level, ask your gunsmith for help.

We use only premium materials and cutting-edge manufacturing technology to create the world’s ultimate carbon fiber barrel. Available now as pre-fit barrels for Savage rifles, it is easy to upgrade to a Helix 6 Precision barrel.

Helix 6 Precision began with the singular goal of producing the world’s finest carbon fiber barrel. For 20 years it has been their passion to build the finest precision rifles available using only premium components. Bad experiences and dissatisfaction with the industry’s carbon fiber barrels led them to seek out the world’s most innovative engineers in carbon fiber design and fabrications.
We continue to push the limits of innovation to improve our process and products. We use only premium materials and cutting edge manufacturing technology, to produce the highest quality, handcrafted, carbon fiber barrel on the market. 100% Made in USA.

Bentonville, AR (October 9, 2019) – The new Hercules Bully from Hastan, provides hunters with a lightweight airgun that packs a powerful punch. Following up on the success of the Hercules rifle, the Bully features a more compact bullpup design and delivers serious stopping power.

The Hercules Bully is available in six calibers, including .177, .22, .25, .30, .35 and .45, giving hunters plenty of options for every species from squirrels to hogs. At just 36.2″ and 10.3 lbs., the highly maneuverable Bully delivers an impressive 290 ft.-lbs. of energy in .45 caliber, making it the perfect airgun to stalk large-bodied game through the thick brush. The Bully is 3 lbs. lighter and 12″ shorter than its older brother, making it perfect for mobile hunting. Thanks to a 480cc carbon fiber air tank mounted at the forend, the Bully is capable of delivering up to 45 shots of .177-caliber pellets, allowing you to stay in the field longer.

Unlike traditional bullpup airguns, the Bully features a cocking mechanism just above the trigger. This design feature is more advantageous for shooters when making fast follow-up shots since it allows for cocking the airgun without taking it off your shoulder. Likewise, an extended-length combo optics rail allows for a wide range of scopes and sights to extend your effective range with the airgun. The Bully comes equipped with removable, adjustable, and foldable TruGlo fiber optic sights that can serve as your primary or backup sighting option in the field.

The Bully also features a synthetic bullpup stock with thumbhole configuration and ambidextrous fit, while an elevation-adjustable comb provides a customizable fit that adjusts to your body type and size of optic. The stock’s forend houses the air tank, which utilizes a quick-fill nozzle and allows you to spend your time hunting rather than refilling. The Bully also comes with three magazines, two of which can be stored in carrying slots located on the stock, and conveniently allows you to keep shooting when the critters are aplenty. 

Best of all, the Hercules Bully offers hunters excellent noise reduction thanks to QuietEnergy barrel technology. Featuring a fully-shrouded barrel and Integrated Sound Moderator, the QuietEnergy system is up to 50 percent quieter, protecting you and your hunting partner’s hearing even on the longest hunting days. Likewise, the rifled and choked barrel delivers premium accuracy, giving you the confidence to make a lethal, ethical shot on game.

  • Bullpup design; manual loading, side lever-action
  • Pre-Charged Pneumatic (PCP) air rifle
  • QuietEnergy fully shrouded barrel
  • Integrated Sound Moderator
  • Precision rifled barrel for accuracy
  • Detachable, caliber-specific, multi-shot magazine

XS Sights Introduces 3-Dot RAM Night Sights

XS Sights RAM Night Sights - Lifetyle Photo on Glock

Fort Worth, TX (October 8, 2019) – XS® Sights is pleased to introduce RAM™ Night Sights – the brightest sight options for fast and accurate shooting in bright and low light.

The RAM (radioactive material) night sights have a traditional 3-dot tritium, notch and post sight picture.  The rear sight is blacked out to increase contrast against the front sight which is available in bright orange or green.  The front sight features XS’s proprietary Ember™ Glow Dot technology which absorbs ambient light and glows in low light.  The front tritium lamp in the RAM sight charges the Ember Glow Dot, making the front sight glow brighter than the rear, keeping one’s focus down range.

“Our high-performance night sights are purpose driven tools fine-tuned for Law Enforcement use,” said Zack Kinsley, Marketing Manager for XS Sights. “Having our own tritium license has significantly strengthened our capabilities.  We now test and use raw materials we didn’t have prior access to, resulting in broader and more advanced product offerings that ensure front sight visibility at all times.”

XS Ram Night Sights - Green and Orange on Left in Bright Light; Green and Orange on Right in Low Light

RAM Night Sights were designed to overcome three common issues with 3-dot tritium sights:

  1. Confusing the front dot with one of the rear sight dots when under stress
  • The brightly colored Ember Glow Dot in the RAM front sight is a much brighter color which differentiates the front dot from the two rear dots.
  1. The 2-dot tritium rear sight glowing brighter than the front sight drawing the eyes there instead of towards the downrange threat.
  • The Ember front sight is brighter than the rear tritium lamps.
  1. Tight sight pictures
  • RAM Night Sights use a notch that is 15% wider than the front sight, allowing more visible light around the front sight.  This makes it easier to see the front sight in changing light conditions and when shooting on the move, aiding in sight alignment and increasing accuracy.

Other key features include a rear sight overhang that reduces glare in bright light for greater sight definition.  The anti-reflective rear tritium lenses also reduce glare in daylight while increasing contrast against the front sight.  RAM sights also have a rear sight ledge to aid in one-handed slide manipulations.

As for color choice, the orange front sight contrasts best in bright light and the green glows best in low light; however, people see color differently and eyesight issues can affect which color performs best for each individual.

The steel RAM Night Sights are extremely durable and easy to install by hand or with a sight pusher tool.  All tritium sights from XS are backed by a 10-year, No-Questions-Asked Warranty.  Front blade width is 0.145” (3.68 mm) and the notch width is 0.170” (4.32 mm).  While height varies by model, all models fit standard holster options.

Available Models:

Glock®

  • 17, 19, 22, 23, 24, 26, 27, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, & 36

CAA USA Confirms Exclusive Licensing Agreement with SB Tactical

 

CAA USA, designer and developer of the MCK conversion kit for popular handguns, confirms that it has an exclusive licensing agreement with SB Tactical®, the originators of the Pistol Stabilizing Brace® for use on the MCK and Micro Roni.

Pompano Beach (October 2019)CAA USA, designers and developers of the MCK/Micro Conversion Kit, confirmed that since May 2019, it has a licensing agreement with SB Tactical®, the originators of the patented Pistol Stabilizing Brace®, for exclusive use on CAA USA products.

“CAA USA is very excited about this exclusive agreement with SB Tactical,” LTC. (Ret.) Mikey Hartman, CEO of CAA USA, commented. “Both CAA USA and SB Tactical are committed to developing superior products that meet the demands of our customer base and ensuring quality and integrity above all.”

The agreement specifies that only CAA USA MCK/Micro Conversion Kits have the right to utilize the intellectual property associated with the Pistol Stabilizing Brace. Any similar products not produced by CAA USA but sold under the CAA Israel name violate the SB-Tactical contracts and are not sanctioned by either company.

Alex Bosco, founder and owner of SB Tactical said in a statement, “We would like to inform our US distributors and dealers that CAA USA is the only manufacturer of MCK, Micro Roni and Roni Stabilizers authorized to produce handgun conversion kits with the SB Tactical patented Stabilizing Brace® technology. We respectfully request that any purported, counterfeit and/or unauthorized use of Stabilizing Braces in handgun conversion kits manufactured, sold or marketed by other companies be reported to SB Tactical. Please notify SB Tactical of any Micro Roni or Roni Stabilizers coming from companies like YRS Inc., CAA Industries (Israel) and Jay Technology, as they are unauthorized sellers of this product.”

Hartman added, “We at CAA USA have cut all ties with CAA Israel because of unauthorized actions of one of its minority shareholders, who began infringing on the SB Tactical patent, as well as violating the MAP prices on the Micro Roni, by selling through an Israeli internet company called YRS. Given these unlawful actions, we had no choice but to design and manufacture our own 100% made in the USA conversion kit called the MCK. In addition, we have taken legal action to stop CAA Israel’s minority shareholder from making false and defamatory statements about the safety of our MCK”. In legal filings, CAA USA has also established that CAA Israel has been facing financial difficulties, further contributing to the need for separation of the two companies.

The CAA USA MCK is the next-generation Micro conversion kit, 100% American-made, easy to assemble, and compatible with the most popular handguns including GLOCK, SIG Sauer and Smith & Wesson. The MCK GLOCK model can accommodate 12 different GLOCK pistol models, allowing the end user more options at a lower cost.

For assembly, simply place the pistol in the CAA USA MCK/Micro Conversion Kit, lock it in and go! There is no pistol disassembly required. The exposed side release allows for direct contact and is easier to use. The MCK is ambidextrous and the right-folding stock arm brace allows for concealment and carry and locks in the folded position. Lots of options for adding accessories and optics with a top Picatinny rail and side Picatinny rails. A spare magazine holder is located in the front for faster reloads and the ergonomic finger groove grip provides the user more stability.

The CAA USA MCK is a vast improvement from previous generations of the Micro Roni Stabilizer. CAA USA is introducing a new patent-pending, revolutionary forward-grip that allows for incredible stability with one-of-a-kind ergonomics. The MCK also provides a new spare magazine holder option that was not available in the older stabilizer versions. CAA USA also now offers models that were not available in the previous conversion kits such as the GLOCK 20/21, the SIG Sauer P320 full-size and compact, the S&W M&P Gen 1 full-size and compact, the M&P 2.0 full-size and compact, and CAA USA will introduce a new Springfield model as well the new Gen 2 MCK in the fourth quarter of 2019. CAA USA will unveil the new products at the 2019 NASGW Expo in Orlando, Florida on Oct. 22 – 25th at booth 1719.

The CAA USA MCK MSRP starts at $249.00 at CAA USA online.

About CAA USA:

CAA USA is a designer, developer, and distributor of modern tactical accessories, optics, and handgun conversion kits targeting the Armed Forces, Law Enforcement and firearm enthusiasts across the globe.

Pilgrim Ammunition Release New Product Information

Pilgrim Ammo’s new line of self-defense projectiles specifications are made public in advance of the product launch.

USA (October 2019) – Pilgrim Ammunition, a new disrupter in the ammunition market, is responding to social media consumer requests for more information regarding their highly anticipated line of self-defense ammunition to be launched in Q4 of 2019.

The new line of ammo demonstrates multiple key benefits for consumers and law enforcement. The primary benefit of Pilgrim Ammunition is its stopping power. Most of the traditional handgun ammunition on the market does not dissipate its energy upon entering a soft tissue target, but tends to over-penetrate, thus making it more likely to strike bystanders. Pilgrim Ammunition’s rounds expand into a starburst pattern, slowing the round while creating devastating wound channels, with minimal chance of over-penetration. For both personal defense and law enforcement, the ability to stop an assailant is paramount. Minimal over-penetration protects innocent bystanders and can lessen the chance of lawsuits against police agencies.

The up and coming new rounds, which include .380 Auto, 9mm +P, .40 S&W, and .45 ACP +P projectiles, also all offer less felt recoil than traditional handgun ammo. For new shooters, and individuals with sensitivity to recoil, the Pilgrim Ammunition line-up reduces issues, such as flinch, by making the experience more comfortable. Another valuable benefit is the reduced weight of the cartridges. For police officers or anyone that carries additional magazines or a fully loaded conceal carry on a daily basis, less weight to carry means less stress on the human body and greater prevention of physical injury without compromising on superior firepower.

The innovator behind Pilgrim Ammunition is ballistics expert P.J. Marx, along with international investors with Spec Ops backgrounds. Pilgrim Ammunition will develop and produce ammunition of the highest quality using premium components at their US-based facility. Marx is an innovator and inventor with over 10 patents to his name in the musical equipment and ballistics industry. He first brought his unique abilities to the ballistic industry after 9/11, in an effort to provide our military and first responders with a superior bullet. As a result, Marx engineered a new kind of bullet specifically designed for the new US Army initiative to find a round more lethal, and at the same time, more environmentally friendly. His new bullet design was capable of penetrating a hard target and would fragment upon entering a soft target, increasing the severity of the injury with superior stopping power. Marx’s ballistic expertise has made him a sought-after ammunition contractor for the US and Allied Forces.

In 2005, Marx started Liberty Ammunition, a company to produce rounds based upon the principles of the bullet design Marx initiated with the proposed military round. He left Liberty Ammunition in 2017 to pursue other interests but was soon coaxed to return to the ammunition sector by an international group of investors with military backgrounds interested in designing and manufacturing premium ammunition for civilian, law enforcement, and military customers worldwide.

Marx realizes that consumers may assume that Pilgrim Ammunitions’ products’ specifications appear familiar, but he assures future customers the differences will be apparent. “Pilgrim Ammunition is sourcing only premium components. Our quality control is superior to many other ammo producers on the market. Pilgrim Ammunition will be the only manufacturer producing the ammunition I originally designed to provide ultimate stopping power with drastically reduced overpenetration.”

Pilgrim Ammunition is still on track to launch their website in Q4 of 2019, followed by the release of their self-defense ammunition line available online.

Information leading up to the launch can be found on the Pilgrim Ammunition Facebook page, on the Instagram page and Twitter page.

Pilgrim Ammunition’s product line was developed by a foremost innovator in the field of ballistics and will continue to recalibrate the ammunition industry with products that exceed consumer expectations and deliver outstanding performance.

About Pilgrim Ammunition:

Pilgrim Ammunition, a US-based research and development, manufacturer and marketer of premium ammunition, was founded in 2018 to deliver an uncompromising product to the commercial, law enforcement, and military markets.

SURVIVOR FILTER Donates Water Filters to Bahamian Hurricane Relief Efforts

Description: Macintosh HD:Users:davidhiggenbotham:Desktop:Survivor Filter Logo.png

 

TORONTO– October 8, 2019 – SURVIVOR FILTER is proud to work with Kalashnikov USA, a firearms company in Pompano Beach, Florida, who will be shipping disaster relief supplies to the Bahamas, where Hurricane Dorian left thousands without the basics of food, shelter, and clean water.

“SURVIVOR FILTER was founded on the premise that everyone should have access to clean drinking water,” said SURVIVOR FILTER Owner Mark Zakaib. “Hurricane Dorian has left thousands of people in a desperate and potentially life-threatening situation. We’re honored to team up with Kalashnikov USA in their effort to help those in need.”

The 2019 Atlantic hurricane season opened in catastrophic fashion as Hurricane Dorian slowly churned across the Bahamas and up the eastern seaboard of the United States and Canada. On September 1, the storm stalled over the islands of Grand Bahama and Abaco, unleashing catastrophic winds and flooding. More than 70,000 have had their homes destroyed.

While the storm’s dramatic impact made headlines around the world, the real work of recovery begins after the clouds clear. Many of the newly homeless are evacuating. Those that stay behind face widespread power outages and damaged infrastructure. Survival, for many, now rests on their ability to find clean water. This is SUVIVOR FILTER’s mission. The company is pleased to offer their support to Kalashnikov USA’s coordinated relief efforts and encourages everyone to do what they can to help care for those in need.

RAFAEL will showcase its Suite for Future Armored Vehicles including the revolutionary ‘Transparent Cockpit’ and quantum leap in AI capabilities

RAFAEL'S TROPHY ON U.S ABRAMS (2)

October 2019 – RAFAEL Advanced Defense Systems Ltd. is participating at AUSA 2019 in Washington, D.C., October 14-17, 2019.

RAFAEL is a leading international defense contractor with combat-tested and proven systems that are optimized for multi-domain operations, survivability, maneuverability, and lethality.

One such example is the TROPHY, the world’s first and only operational, combat-proven, safety-certified APS, in serial production and in service on the IDF Merkava Mk III and IV MBT’s and NAMER AFV’s, recently sold to the US Army and Marines for the Abrams MBT’s, and integrated on more than a dozen platforms. In total, TROPHY is under contract for some 2000 systems for several users.

Last winter, the US Army decided to procure the Iron Dome air defense system to protect its expeditionary forces and strategic assets. Iron Dome has been widely used by the Israeli Air Force, with over 2000 combat interceptions against a variety of very short and short range threats, including UAV’s.

At the heart of RAFAEL’s systems, are advanced artificial intelligence and deep learning capabilities that optimize performance. These are also at the heart of two of RAFAEL’s leading next generation technologies, that have been integrated into its Suite for Future Armored Vehicles, featuring a Transparent Cockpit and quantum leap in AI capabilities, combining the most advanced subsystems and optionally-manned technologies, and transforming any armored vehicle – including AFVs, APCs and tanks – into an ultra-modern combat system. Another breakthrough system developed by RAFAEL is the FIREWEAVER, a Revolutionary Networked Attack System for the new wave of Land-Based Operations Digitization

In today’s rapidly changing battlefield, the combat helicopter still holds a central and important role. The combat helicopter is a valuable asset for the military commander both in defense and offence missions. RAFAEL is a leading supplier and integrator of a full armament upgrade package, including both 4th and 5th generation stand-off Precision Guided electro-optical (EO) Missiles in different weights and ranges of up to 30 km, EO devices, Guided/unguided Rocket interface, Command & Control interfaces for pilot situation awareness, HMDs (Helmet-Mounted Displays for cueing of SPIKE Seeker and EOS to pilot head orientation) and even heliborne broadband Digital Data-link for continuous communication among the squadron helicopters.

Throughout the years, RAFAEL has signed numerous joint ventures with American companies for joint development, production and marketing of  air, land and marine systems. In fact, most of the systems listed above came to the U.S. military via partnership with major U.S. primes, including Boeing, General Dynamics, Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, and Leonardo DRS.

RAFAEL'S FUTURE ARMORED VEHICLE SUITE

RAFAEL is proposing solutions for a number of US programs and tenders and will be displaying a variety of systems at AUSA 2019, including:

· SPIKE Family – Precise, tactical, electro-optical, multi-platform fire-and-update missiles, sold to 33 countries, with over 30,000 missiles supplied. SPIKE and its variants (NLOS, ER2, LR2) are being offered for a number of U.S air, naval and land programs.

· SPIKE FIREFLY – Revolutionary Miniature Tactical Loitering Weapon System from the SPIKE Family, weighing only 3 kg and providing behind-cover precision attack capabilities for the dismounted soldier

· DRONE DOME ‒ An innovative end-to-end system designed to provide effective airspace defense against hostile drones. Drone Dome has 360° circular coverage and is designed to detect, track, and neutralize drones either by jamming their communication or destroying them using a laser beam.

· TROPHY VPS (Vehicle Protection System) – the world’s only operational active vehicle protection system, combat-proven in numerous combat scenarios against a large variety of threats. Recently delivered to the US Army Abrams MBT’s, and tested on the Bradley IFV.

· SKYHUNTER – Iron Dome’s advanced interceptor (also called TAMIR). Iron Dome is an active CRAM air defense system, which has to-date intercepted over 2,000 threats in battle.

· FIRE WEAVER – Networked Targeting Control System (NTCS), providing real-time pixel-based target designation and fire coordination, allowing simultaneous, precision strikes on multiple targets within seconds

· SUITE FOR FUTURE ARMORED VEHICLES – RAFAEL’s solution for the future combat fighting vehicle enables two crew members to perform their mission, in a fully protected closed hatch vehicle, with a breakthrough transparent cockpit design, enabling 360 degree situational awareness, using augmented reality for real-time battlefield information and data.

STREAMLIGHT MARKS 11 YEARS SUPPORTING BREAST CANCER RESEARCH FOUNDATION

Company’s Total Contribution to Date is $752,300 and 15,000 Research Hours

EAGLEVILLE, PA, October 8, 2019 – Streamlight® Inc., a leading provider of high-performance lighting equipment, donated $752,300 and 15,000 research hours over 11 years to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation® (BCRF), a not-for-profit organization seeking to prevent and cure breast cancer. Each October, Streamlight proudly recognizes Breast Cancer Awareness Month, donating proceeds from its pink line of lights to BCRF.

In 2018/2019, Streamlight donated $27,000 in sales proceeds to BCRF from the pink Nano Light® key chain light, the pink Siege® AA ultra-compact lantern, and the pink Strion® LED tactical light. For each of the lights, Streamlight donates $1.00, $2.00, and $5.00, respectively. 

Over the years, a number of Streamlight employees have been affected by breast cancer. Given the tight-knit company culture, Streamlight’s management wanted to contribute in some way to finding new treatments for the disease. In 2008, the company’s management decided to create a line of pink flashlights and donate the proceeds to BCRF. 

“As breast cancer research continues at an unprecedented pace, Streamlight is proud to contribute to BCRF’s efforts to find a cure and to bring awareness to this terrible disease,” said Streamlight Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Michael F. Dineen. “We count a number of employees among those who are breast cancer survivors, and we are steadfast in our determination to promote such a worthy cause.”

In 2019, the American Cancer Society estimates that more than 269,000 women will have been diagnosed with invasive breast cancer, and nearly 42,000 will die from the disease. Men also are affected, with 2,670 men expected to be diagnosed, and 500 expected to die from the disease.

The BCRF pink Nano Light, Siege AA, and Strion LED have MSRPs of $13.10, $55.06, and $206.35, respectively. All lights come with Streamlight’s Limited Lifetime Warranty.

Lauder in 1993, BCRF has raised more than $500 million to fuel discoveries in tumor biology, genetics, prevention, treatment, survivorship and metastasis; making it one of the largest non-governmental funders of breast cancer research in the world.

The Vigil 1911 Series From Dan Wesson Lighter-Weight and More Affordable

Kansas City, KS (October 7, 2019) – A more affordable entry into the Dan Wesson lineup of high-quality semi-automatics, the Vigil Series 1911 pistols are built around a forged aluminum frame with a stainless-steel slide. The round-top slide sports a tritium night sight on the front and a serrated tactical rear sight. The front strap is checkered at 25 lines per inch, as is the rear strap, and the Vigil’s feature a rounded butt for comfortable carry.

The aluminum frame is a real weight saver, too, shaving off approximately six ounces in the Vigil Government-size compared to standard Government-size 1911s. All Vigil 1911’s are made from premium components and feature a beveled magazine well, carry bevel treatment, undercut trigger guards, and hand-polished flats. The Dan Wesson triggers are crisp and creep-free and are set at 3.5 to 5 pounds.  Each pistol comes with two magazines.

In addition to the government model with a five-inch barrel, Dan Wesson offers these Vigil options:

  • The Vigil Suppressor-Ready variant, a Government-sized 1911 with an extended, threaded barrel and high sights with a tritium front.
  • The Vigil Commander with a 4.25-inch barrel, and the same features as the Government-size Vigil. This shorter Commander drops a couple-ounces, making it a mid-sized pistol that is easier to carry on-body all day yet remains very accurate.
  • The Vigil CCO model, combining a sub-compact Officer frame with a compact Commander slide and barrel. Ideal for concealed carry, it is very light yet retains the sight radius of a Commander model, making it very shootable.

All Vigil models are also available in 9MM Luger, which adds another round to the ammunition capacity.

NSSF Unveils New Podcast, ‘The Gun Industry Speaks’

For immediate release | October 4, 2019

NSSF The Firearms Industry Trade Association

The Gun Industry Speaks Podcast


NEWTOWN, Conn.
— The National Shooting Sports Foundation®(NSSF®) today unveiled a new podcast series, “The Gun Industry Speaks,” to help inform the national conversation on firearms.

“Our goal is to have a frank and ongoing conversation that addresses some of the major concerns about guns in America,” said Joe Bartozzi, NSSF’s President. “It’s important to highlight what is already being done by law, policy and industry action to help keep guns out of the wrong hands. This series will explore the pros and cons of some of the potential solutions being discussed today.”

NSSF developed the series in part as a response to the lack of information being shared by the media regarding the industry’s perspective on everything from background checks and trends in gun crime to suicide prevention and bans on certain types of firearms. The podcast is also meant to articulate the industry’s position that it is possible to enhance public safety and protect Americans’ rights simultaneously.

The program is hosted by Elizabeth McGuigan, NSSF’s Director of Legislative and Policy Research. The first three episodes, covering NSSF’s gun safety and crime prevention programs, background checks, and gun store security, are live now. New episodes will be added in the coming weeks, covering subjects such as bans on modern sporting rifles and so-called “high-capacity” magazines, Smart Guns, NSSF’s Project ChildSafe® Program, Firearms and suicide prevention, and the current laws in place that are meant to keep guns out of the hands of criminals.

“We do share the concerns of all Americans, and while there may not be agreement on some ideas, discussions like this are needed, because the national conversation around guns is too often a shouting match, and that is a disservice to everyone,” Bartozzi says. “No one wants crime or gun accidents to occur, and everyone is looking for meaningful solutions. Our hope with this podcast is to get us all closer to that goal.”

“The Gun Industry Speaks” is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, and NSSF’s Real SolutionsTM website.

About NSSF

The National Shooting Sports Foundation is the trade association for the firearms industry. Its mission is to promote, protect and preserve hunting and the shooting sports. Formed in 1961, NSSF has a membership of thousands of manufacturers, distributors, firearms retailers, shooting ranges, sportsmen’s organizations and publishers nationwide.

First Lady Melania Trump and Secretary Bernhardt Highlight the Importance of the Every Kid Outdoors Program at Grand Teton NP

 

News Release

Date: October 4, 2019
Contact:
Interior_Press@ios.doi.gov

Grand Teton, Wyo. – Today, First Lady of the United States Melania Trump and U.S. Secretary of the Interior David Bernhardt joined second and fourth graders in Grand Teton National Park for a field trip highlighting the importance of the Every Kid Outdoors Program.

“This trip highlighted some of the beautiful national parks, lands, and waters that make up our country,” said First Lady Melania Trump. “Spending time outdoors with children and learning more about our incredible and complex surroundings was a very meaningful experience for me. I want to thank the people of Wyoming for making me feel so welcomed. I also want to thank the many dedicated organizations including Jackson District Boy Scouts and the National Park Service for all they do in protecting and taking care of our national parks.”

“Grand Teton National Park and the Department of the Interior were honored to have the First Lady visit today. America’s National Parks and public lands provide great opportunities for children to explore, investigate and learn,” said Secretary Bernhardt. “The First Lady’s advocacy for children to ‘Be Best’ is right on the mark! The Every Kid Outdoors program, which was signed into law by President Trump, is also a great way for fourth grade students to expand their horizons and be their best selves by experiencing the wonder of public lands. I am hopeful that fourth grade students, their parents and their educators take full advantage of the Every Kid Outdoors Program.”

Every Kid Outdoors is an interagency collaboration between the Department of the Interior, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and U.S. Forest Service that provides fourth graders with free access to explore, learn, and recreate in spectacular settings, including national parks, wildlife refuges, marine sanctuaries, and forests.

Fourth grade students can get a free annual pass to visit more than 2,000 federal recreation areas with their families, classmates, and friends. To obtain the free pass, fourth grade students visit the Every Kid Outdoors website, participate in a short educational activity, and download a voucher. The voucher is valid for multiple use between Sept. 1, 2019 and Aug. 31, 2020 to correspond to the traditional school year. The voucher may be exchanged for a keepsake pass at participating federal lands.

The bipartisan John D. Dingell, Jr. Conservation, Management and Recreation Act, which was signed into law by President Trump on March 12, 2019, authorized funding for Every Kid Outdoors for the next seven years, which replaced the Every Kid in a Park program.

Every Kid Outdoors

The Every Kid Outdoors Program replaces the Every Kid in a Park Program. The program focuses on children 10 years of age—the age of most fourth graders—based on research that indicates children ages 9–11 are at a unique developmental stage in their learning where they begin to understand how the world around them works in more concrete ways and they are more receptive to engaging with nature and the environment. By focusing on this age group year after year, the program aims to ensure every child in the United States has the opportunity to visit their Federal lands and waters by the time he or she is 11 years old, thereby establishing a lifelong connection to enjoy and protect our American outdoor heritage.

There are seven federal agencies participating in the Every Kid Outdoors Program. You can search for participating lands and waters (by agency) through the links below:

Economic Impact of National Parks

National parks are great contributors to our nation’s economy; supporting a historically low unemployment rate of 3.6%, which is the lowest the unemployment rate has been since 1969.

According to the annual National Park Service report, 2018 National Park Visitor Spending Effects, more than 318 million visitors spent $20.2 billion in communities within 60 miles of a park in the National Park System. Of the 329,000 jobs supported by visitor spending, more than 268,000 jobs exist in the park gateway communities.

In 2018, visitors to Grand Teton National Park spent $629 million in communities near the park. That spending supported 8,620 jobs in the local area and had a cumulative benefit to the local economy of $792 million.
