GPO USA Continues Support of Retailers with its New Rewards Program

RICHMOND, Va. (Oct. 16, 2019) — German Precision Optics (GPO) USA announced the introduction of its groundbreaking “My GPO Points™ program” that makes life exponentially easier than any other points program in the industry for retail salespeople to earn and redeem points on GPO products. The program is e-mail based, and it also awards points for social media interaction with GPO Facebook pages.
The My GPO Points program is fast and easy and doesn’t even require the cost of a postage stamp. Simply register on-line, sell a GPO product, take a picture of the receipt with your smart phone and send it in to the GPO program e-mail address to earn 10 percent of the published sales price. Each $10 increment of the sale price gains the salesperson $1 redeemable for the purchase of a GPO product. For example, the GPO PASSION™ HD 10×42 has a retail value of $999.99 and selling one of these products will earn 100 My GPO Points.
To participate, simply register by e-mailing GPO at
mygpopoints@gpo-usa.com, and provide your name, address, and phone number. Then, upon selling a GPO product, take a photo of the sales receipt with your smartphone, and e-mail the photo of the receipt to the mygpopoints@gpo-usa.com address with the model name and serial number in the subject line. Liking and following the GPO Binoculars/Hunting page and the GPO Riflescope and Shooting page on Facebook will add 10 additional points to the sales clerk account. Sharing posts from either page will also gain five points for each new GPO post shared. To add points from social media, simply take a screenshot of the like/follow or shared post, and e-mail it to mygpopoints@gpo-usa.com.
“Traditionally, points programs have been complicated for clerks to collect points, and usually consist of photocopying a receipt, filling out a form and physically mailing it in,” said Mike Jensen, GPO USA president. “Submissions are often lost or invalidated, and clerks end up shorted. I have written and run various points programs at different companies over the years, and I have always wanted to create one that was very easy for clerks to collect and redeem points. This one does just that and it adds social media into the mix for added points.”

Cobalt Kinetics Gives A Sneak Peek Of Their New Line Of 1911-Style Pistols

 

 

Washington Utah, October 15, 2018
         Five years ago, Cobalt Kinetics of Washington Utah hit the gun market hard and fast with a bold new interpretation of the AR-15. The “Cobalt” became the weapon of choice for the shooter who chose to stand out at the local range, club, or 3-gun match. The Cobalt rifle was marked by aggressive design, flashy colors and some very way-forward technology.
Now, Cobalt Kinetics announces it will be producing a line of handguns. Modular-framed, high-capacity 1911 based handguns. Cobalt alleges that they’ve been discussing the introduction of their own pistol for over 2 years. Cobalt will be releasing a complete line- to include a commander-sized carry pistol, a suppressor ready tactical pistol, and USPSA competition pistols. While the exact features and details of each model are still being refined- Cobalt insists that they’re willing and able to make good on most any custom request from interested parties. This would indicate that these pistols are being built by hand in a custom fashion rather than being mass produced on a manufacturing line. The pistol-smith who is spearheading this endeavor is David Lake. He’s a skilled gun-builder with 19 years of study and on-the-job experience in the craft. He has built competition handguns for world champions in various shooting disciplines. (He’s also got a loyal following as a builder of precision bolt-action target rifles.)

Cobalt confirms that a few pistols have already been released and are out in the world being used by some lucky shooters. The images seen here are in fact photographs- not renderings. These handguns already exist. Cobalt makes no comment about the timeline for delivery of these new handguns, nor will they confirm the prices at this time- it’s expected that like the BAMF rifle, this new product line will be very high end and command a premium at market.

This exciting announcement is accompanied by some somber news- Cobalt Kinetics will discontinue domestic sales of its entire lineup of semi-auto sporting rifles. Production of the BAMF -and all its variants like the EDGE, TEAM, RECON, and EVOLVE-will soon cease for the United States market. Production efforts will be shifted to manufacturing pistol components. 
Vice president and marketing director at Cobalt, Skylar Stewart, commented, “We are sorry to have to take the BAMF out of production. We all worked tirelessly to create it and get it out into the world and establish and grow the market for the super-premium AR-15. But times change, market demand shifts, and we’re only looking forward. We have really been wanting to expand our offering for a long time and this shift gives us the chance to make good on that plan. Our pistol-smith, Dave Lake, has a lot of experience and has given us a healthy head start on this thing. We’re going to hit the ground running. We plan to break some rules, turn some heads and make our mark on the firearm industry again.”
Cobalt Kinetics does still have a standing inventory of new and used rifles. The new guns are exactly that- new boxed inventory, while the used guns are all trade show samples and sales and range demo rifles in various conditions ranging from bearing a few slight handling marks to heavy cosmetic damage from extreme use. This inventory is being offered for sale to any and all with the foresight to get them while you still can. The Cobalt rifle will surely become a valuable commodity among gun collectors. Cobalt maintains that each of these last 200 new guns will be sold with a full factory warranty. For a list of available rifles, contact Cobalt’s sales team at 435-656-0599 or
sales@cobaltkinetics.com.

The biggest invention since the jet engine

THOROUGH TESTING: Nammo have completed more than 150 ramjet motor tests. The company is now transitioning to ballistic firing tests.

When the jet engine was invented in the 1940s, it revolutionized aviation. Aircraft could fly faster, higher and became much more maneuverable. In a very short space of time, a whole class of military aircraft became obsolete. With its new ramjet motors, Nammo is confident it can do something similar for both missiles and artillery.

After more than 150 successful motor tests, Nammo is pleased to confirm that its ramjet motor concepts have completed their initial developmental test phase.

The company is now preparing to commence stage 2 of its ramjet testing – with ballistic firing tests expected in the coming months. Nammo believes the new technology can fundamentally change the US and allied approach to missiles and artillery.

Most missile variants – including air to air, ground to air and naval missiles – can be used with ramjet motors. Nammo believes this – in time – will lead to significant change in the business.

“This is probably the most significant program our company has ever worked on. We believe it will change the way we fight in the air; we believe it will change the way we fight on the ground”, says Nammo CEO Morten Brandtzæg.

“The initial test phase has been a resounding success, well beyond our expectations. We are ready to start long range firing trials”, says Frank Møller with Nammo’s ramjet team.

IN MID-FLIGHT: A 155mm ramjet shell moments after being fired from an artillery gun. Captured by a high speed camera at Nammo’s test center.

Five times more range

Traditional rocket motors have one big shortcoming: They need to carry oxidizer as part of their propellant. Since the oxidizer uses more volume, as little as 20% of the propellant is actual fuel.

“Traditional rocket motors have significant limitations due to the need to carry oxygen. Oxygen is needed for the propellant to burn, but it also takes up a lot of space. That severely limits the amount of fuel in missiles. This of course hampers range, velocity and the ability to go high”, says Frank Møller.

Ramjets do not have this limitation, and instead can use an air intake as a compressor – at speeds around mach 3. As a consequence, all of the oxidizer can be removed, making room for around five times as much fuel.

Air to air missiles powered by ramjets will be able to reach targets as far away as 500km, many times that of current long range missiles.

“Our tests show that we could be looking at as much as five times the range. Missiles could also go much higher and faster. And burn times up to 300-400 seconds would give more energy to maneuver at extended ranges”, says Frank Møller.

“I see this as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity: This has the potential to disrupt the whole missile and artillery sector, as well as NATO air defense”, says Morten Brandtzæg.

INCREASING MISSILE RANGE: Ramjet missiles could get ranges up to 500km.

Can be fired from any 155mm artillery gun

Nammo’s ramjet concept has been in development for several years, and is now set to enter operational testing. For the first long range tests, 155mm artillery projectiles will be used.

“Artillery shells, particularly those fired from modern guns, are fast enough for a ramjet to ignite, and our tests indicate that we can expect ranges of up to 150km. This is of course an enormous improvement on traditional artillery with a 20-30km range. You now have a choice: move your artillery forward and shoot deep behind enemy lines, or keep them safe, far from counter battery fire”, says Thomas Danbolt, Nammo’s VP large caliber.

“With ramjet shells, just a few pieces of artillery could cover entire countries. I sincerely believe this could be the biggest change in military technology since the invention of the jet engine”, says Frank Møller.

AirMap and Industry Partners Successfully Demonstrate Dynamic Geofencing Capabilities

AirMap, Aeromapper, SPH Engineering and Industry Partners Successfully Demonstrate Dynamic Geofencing Capabilities as Part of SESAR GEOSAFE Project

Earlier this year, the European Commission adopted EU-wide rules designed to pave the way for safe, efficient, and secure airspace access for large numbers of drones. As part of these rules, EU Member States can define designated no-fly zones where drones are not allowed to enter, including airports, airfields, and city centers.
Geofencing is essential to ensuring that drones comply with airspace restrictions. Geofences prevent drones from entering no-fly zones and keep them away from protected areas and critical infrastructure. Geo-caging, by contrast, does not allow drones to fly beyond a set boundary. Both measures are critical to keeping complex low-altitude airspace safe for all.
In an effort to evolve U-space capabilities for EU-wide implementation, AirMap is participating in GEOSAFE, a SESAR Joint Undertaking funded project aimed at researching, developing, and testing foundational and advanced geofencing services. Learn more about how AirMap and industry partners recently demonstrated the three tiers of geofencing aligned with U-space capability levels.

Suppressor Ready: The New Discretion 1911 From Dan Wesson. A Threaded Barrel and Other Tactical Accessories, Standard

 

Kansas City, KS (September 15, 2019) – With suppressors becoming more and more mainstream, the designers and pistol-smiths at Dan Wesson, a CZ-USA company, decided it was time to offer a suppressor-ready 1911. They also wanted a more tactically oriented 1911, with all the quality features standard on a Dan Wesson semi-automatic. The result is the sharp-looking DW Discretion, with a match-grade stainless barrel that’s both extended and threaded. But the craftsmen at Wesson’s didn’t stop there.

The Discretion is a standout in the Dan Wesson line with the great looking ported slide. The rail under the barrel allows for easy attachment of a light and/or laser, while the Discretion’s serrated trigger and competition-inspired hammer give it a look all its own.

The Discretion’s high tritium sights allow for sighting over the top of most pistol suppressors.  The very rear of the slide is designed so that the slide can be racked on a belt if using the pistol one-handed.

The Discretion is available in both 9mm Luger and 45 ACP, with both models finished in DW Duty Black.

Like all Dan Wesson 1911’s, the Discretion features:

  • Hand-fit 70-series frame and slide
  • Forged slides and barrels
  • Hand-fit match barrels
  • Billet alloy steel fire-control system
  • Zero MIM parts
  • All premium components
  • Lowered and flared ejection port

AeroVironment Launches New Puma™ LE, Delivering Group 2 Capabilities in a Group 1 Footprint with Increased Range, Endurance and Payload Capacity

 

AeroVironment’s new Puma LE small unmanned aircraft system (Photo: AeroVironment)

  • Rapidly deployable via hand-launch, Puma LE’s 5.5-hour endurance delivers persistent data with increased time on station, in an economical two-case mission packout
  • Puma LE’s 5.5-pound total payload capacity includes a secondary payload bay with dedicated power supply and Ethernet connection, making Puma LE the ideal multi-mission platform for third-party payload integration
  • Shared plug-and-play interoperability with Puma AE components reduces logistical and training impact  

WASHINGTON, at AUSA 2019 Annual Meeting & Exposition, Booth #425, Oct. 14, 2019 – AeroVironment, Inc.(NASDAQ:AVAV), a global leader in unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), today announced the launch of Puma LE (Long Endurance), the next generation in its Puma All Environment small UAS product line. Puma LE builds on the combat-proven Puma AE legacy with new capabilities, increased range, and expanded payload capacity. With the integrated Mantis i45 gimbaled EO/IR sensor and NVG-visible laser illuminator, Puma LE provides the warfighter with superior imagery for intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) during day, night and low-light operations on land and in maritime environments. 

Delivering Group 2 capabilities in a Group 1 footprint, the aircraft weighs only 22.5 pounds (10.4 kilograms), and is launchable by hand or bungee, making Puma LE easy to deploy and recover. On-board batteries provide 5.5 hours of flight endurance, doubling the time on station of Puma 3 AE, with an operational range of 60 kilometers when used with AeroVironment’s Long-Range Tracking Antenna (LRTA). Puma LE’s economical dual-case mission pack contains everything needed to perform two complete 5.5-hour missions with a single aircraft and Ground Control System (GCS).

Puma LE is purpose-built for multi-mission operations with up to 5.5 pounds of total payload capacity. The aircraft’s ruggedized secondary payload bay enables the integration of third-party payloads with a dedicated power supply providing 18-24 volts at up to 5 amps, and an Ethernet connection port for payload communications. This capability provides the flexibility for operators to incorporate specialized payloads such as electronic warfare, RF emitter geolocation, laser designation, communications relay and others.

“Puma LE is the next generation of the combat-proven Puma AE small UAS, delivering immediate tactical ISR, extended endurance and a dedicated secondary payload bay to dramatically expand its mission capabilities,” said Rick Pedigo, vice president of sales and business development for AeroVironment. “With Puma LE, AeroVironment expands the envelope of small unmanned aircraft systems, and enables our customers to proceed with certainty in ever-changing operational environments.”

Puma LE can be operated manually or autonomously with AeroVironment’s common GCS. Puma LE utilizes plug and play, interoperable line-replaceable unit (LRU) components that can be shared with other Puma AE aircraft. This native compatibility reduces training and logistical impact for operators. In addition, current Puma AE customers can now optimize their fielded systems by purchasing Puma LE as an add-on aircraft and easily installing Puma AE LRU components. Multiple Puma LE system options provide the flexibility for customers to choose the right configuration based on mission requirements.

AeroVironment is now accepting orders for Puma LE, with expected delivery in spring 2020. For more information, visit AeroVironment at the AUSA 2019 Annual Meeting & Exposition, Booth #425, or at www.avinc.com/pumale.

Communications upgrade to First Responders in Chile

 

Barrett Communications have recently supplied a contract to the Urgent Medical Attention Service in Chile, to strengthen and secure communications between hospitals and ambulances in the Aysen region.

In December 2017, the town of Villa Santa Lucia in Patagonia, Chile, was hit by a mudslide that enveloped a third of the town. The Barrett Authorised dealer in Chile, Skytel Telecomunicaciones, quickly assisted the local Urgent Medical Attention Service (SAMU). They equipped two ambulances with Barrett High Frequency (HF) radio communications equipment as part of the team deployed to Villa Santa Lucia.

During the weeks that followed, SAMU recognised the benefits of HF radio communications in these remote locations and determined to upgrade their network to include additional HF systems.

Mr. Diego Del Gallego, Barrett Communications Operations Manager – Latin America, commented: “One of the major challenges faced by SAMU was that as soon as their ambulances left a major town, their existing communications systems could not be used. HF now enables them to maintain communications along the entire journey, which, in some cases, can be covering many hundreds of kilometers”.
The HF network provided by Barrett covers the remote and isolated region of Aysen, which extends over 100,000km2 and the SAMU system has been designed to maintain constant communications between the fleet of 15 ambulances, two regional hospitals and the major Health Ministry office in Chile’s capital city, Santiago.

The Barrett 2050 HF Transceiver in mobile vehicle configuration, together with the Barrett 2019 Auto-Tuning antenna, has been integrated into the entire ambulance fleet. The Barrett 4050 HF SDR’s base station has been installed in the hospital and in the Santiago Office. The HF base stations have been loaded with the Barrett 2020 HF email system and HF vehicle tracking software. This will enable voice, email and data communications coverage and real time tracking of the ambulance team by the office radio operators.

Mr. Del Gallego noted that “the Barrett 2050 transceiver and 4050 HF SDR include Digital Voice and ALE [Automatic Link Establishment] options which automate many of the radio functions and provides clear, near telephone quality, radio communications over the entire HF network”. He continued, detailing that “the station in Santiago is of great importance in the co-ordination of emergency relief efforts, as in the Santa Lucia Mudslide, where in future, the Santiago station will be used to monitor and provide communications when overseeing the entire emergency plan across the region.”

Team CZ-USA Sets New Guinness World Book Shooting Record!

 

CZ’s Team of Young Shotgun Competitors Re-Sets the Bar

Kansas City, KS (October 14, 2019) – It’s official. As in, Guinness World Book of Records Official! On October 12, 2019, CZ-USA, David Miller, CZ-USA’s shotgun manager, and pro-shooter, and the CZ-USA Team set a world record for most sporting clay targets shot in a 12-hour period by a five-person team. 

The team ended up breaking a total of 14,176 clays.

“This new world record took a great deal of practice, commitment and concentration,” said Miller. “And these young shooters never faltered! I’m very proud of these young people and their stellar work ethic. This new world record could not have been set without their dedication to excellence.”

The CZ-USA Team members for this historic attempt were:

  • Dave Miller, CZ-USA
  • Levi Henrichs, of Sibley, Iowa
  • Makayla Scott, White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia
  • Jessica Strasser, Waterford, Wisconsin
    Weston Zolck, Herman, Nebraska

Each team member was selected based on an essay they submitted to CZ-USA. Each applicant also had participated in an A.I.M. or SCTP competitive shotgun shooting qualifier event.

This was an Official Guinness World Records attempt, and the previous Guinness record for most sporting clays shot by a five-person team in 12 hours was 4,602 targets. The new record was set at the Powder Creek Shooting Park in Lenexa, Kansas, October 12, 2019.

“We had an enthusiastic crowd on hand, and they really cheered us on,” Miller added. “Thank you to everyone who came out to support us and to our sponsors. You made a huge difference!”

Since 1997, CZ-USA has given American shooters and hunters the best firearms the Czech Republic has to offer. In 2019, we completed yet another milestone by producing CZ firearms here in the United States at CZ-USA’s Kansas City, Kansas, facility. With our ever-increasing production capabilities stateside, CZ-USA will continue to improve, innovate, and add to the CZ-USA line-up of high-quality, affordable handguns, rifles, shotguns, and suppressors, plus custom-quality handguns from Dan Wesson.

ArachniGRIP Offers Slide Spider for S&W SW9 Sigma

 

(Parker, CO) – ArachniGRIP®, creator and manufacturer of the innovative Slide Spider® adhesive slide grip, is now offering a slide grip for the Smith & Wesson SW9 Sigma.

Arachnigrip has had many inquiries about the availability of its Slide Spider slide grip for the Smith & Wesson Sigma models. In response to the demand, they have just released the Slide Spider for this popular pistol model available for purchase at www.arachnigrip.com.
The Sigma models were introduced in 1994, as Smith & Wesson’s alternative to the Glock 17. It was Smith & Wesson’s first polymer frame pistol and had a stainless steel slide. Released in both 9MM and .40 S&W, it was one of the first pistols produced to handle the .40 S&W cartridge. The original design also had the same grip angle as the Colt 1911, allowing a familiar and comfortable fit for many shooters. The 1994 models only offered 10 round capacity due to government regulations at the time; however, later models were released with a 16-round magazine. The Sigma design was updated and built upon in 2011 and was re-introduced as the SD series.
The Slide Spider grip by ArachniGRIP is available for most semi auto pistols. It is easy to install and extremely durable. The Slide Spider grip products enable the shooter to gain increased control through a safe and secure hold. The products offer additional tactical advantages under challenging operating conditions, including extreme moisture and temperature. In addition, these products aid shooters with weak or weakened hand strength and those with medical conditions such as arthritis.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

Hatsan Goes Mobile with New Hercules Bully

 

The Hercules Bully offers hunters a compact, lightweight hunting airgun that delivers game-stopping power.

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.

CHARLESTON, South Carolina – October 8, 2019 – The Murray Road Agency announces a new partnership with Azimuth Technology. The Murray Road team will help shape Azimuth’s brand, messaging and approach to key market segments. Azimuth Technology is the leading precision manufacturer of major firearm components and other products and components used by hunters and shooters as well as military, law enforcement and aerospace customers.

Murray Road’s experience and current client lineup is rooted in the shooting and hunting space. The company specializes in content generation, social media, media buying, brand building, public relations and more.

Azimuth Technology is a company founded on operational excellence and has been making key parts and components for some of the most popular firearm and accessories brands available in the United States for almost a decade. The leadership team has a 50-year legacy of success in delivering exceptional manufacturing quality for industries where precision operation is critical.

“We have known Cathy and the team for many years,” said Azimuth President and CEO Len Zaiser. “They were some of the first people we met in this industry and we’re happy to be formally working together. We look forward to combining our innovation, experience and expertise with a marketing partner that takes Azimuth Technology to new markets, customers and levels of growth.”

“The Murray Road team brings a wealth of knowledge and relationships to this partnership,” said Azimuth Senior Vice President Cameron Grantham. “We have grown significantly over the last few years, and we have plenty more in the pipeline. Murray Road will help ensure this growth continues by charting a strategic plan to engage our customer base and help us navigate new opportunities.”

“Azimuth Technology is different—and that’s evident when you see the manufacturing facilities and sit down and talk to Len, Cameron and the team,” said Murray Road President Tim Brandt. “The first step into the factory helps you understand just how talented, advanced and knowledgeable Azimuth is as a manufacturer and a top-to-bottom organization. And a quick walk through the rows of CNC machines will have hardcore gun enthusiasts sold by the speed and process—and the brand names and logos on the parts.”
