FN Expands Pistol Offerings with All-FDE FN Five-seveN and FN 503 Micro Compact


FN EXPANDS pistol offerings with all-fde fn five-seven and fn 503 MICRO COMPACT

(McLean, VA – May 7, 2021) Catering to the requests of shooting enthusiasts and FN brand fans alike, FN America, LLC is pleased to announce the release of new flat dark earth (FDE) offerings in both its FN Five-seveN® and FN 503® line-ups, available at authorized retailers soon.

“Today’s gun buyer is looking for variety and options, not just with accessories but with color variants that stand out in unique and noticeable ways,” said Chris Cole, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for FN America, LLC. “FN’s all-FDE models certainly stand out and we feel that these new releases in our signature color give consumers greater options to further customize, and personalize, their gun and gear setups.”

FN Five-seveN FDE

The original FN Five-seveN®, often imitated but hardly duplicated, has two decades of trusted service with allied armies, global law enforcement and civilians.


Extending its groundbreaking design is a new, all flat dark earth frame and slide. With improved range and accuracy over common pistol cartridges, the NATO-standardized 5.7x28mm, developed by FN, is fired from the chrome-lined cold hammer-forged barrel.

Pinpoint accuracy and minimal felt recoil is standard issue. Equipped with an internal hammer, the smooth trigger with a predictable break further enhances accuracy.

This new all-FDE model, available with 10-rd or 20-rd magazines, replaces the existing two-toned FDE and Black. Existing California-compliant Five-Seven models remain unchanged.

FN 503 FDE


The latest update to FN’s micro compact 9mm pistol, now available in flat dark earth, is inspired by the company’s legendary reputation for battle-proven quality. Setting a new standard in concealed carry handguns, the 503 is more controllable and accurate thanks to a full-height grip stippling and a best-in-class trigger breaking cleanly at approximately 5.5-lbs. The FN 503 is a discreet and comfortable gun that conceals easily thanks to its slim profile. The snag-free all-metal 3 dot sights deliver an instant and crisp sight picture.

Bushnell® Expands Rimfire Riflescope Lineup


Bushnell® Expands Rimfire Riflescope Lineup

New Scopes Offer DZ22 Reticles and Peak Performance for Rimfire Shooters

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – May 5, 2021 Bushnell®, an industry leader in performance optics, has announced the addition of two new models to its dedicated lineup of rimfire riflescopes. Specifically designed for .22LR rifles, these scopes are ideal for varmint and small game hunting, as well as for plinking and recreational shooting.

The two new riflescopes are available in a 3-9x40mm configuration with DZ22 reticles, with one model featuring an illuminated reticle option. The DZ22 reticle was specifically designed for .22LR rimfire ballistics, with drop points out to 125 yards.  On the illuminated reticle model, the riflescope is standard with an “off” position between each intensity setting, so users do not have to return to zero and lose their preferred intensity. The illuminated reticle also provides shooters with improved visibility in low light environments.

Rimfire shooters will appreciate that both models come equipped with glass enhancements for improved performance. Standard features on both riflescopes include multi-coated surfaces, one-piece tube design and a large 40mm objective for more clarity, improved resolution and a larger exit pupil. Both riflescopes can also be used with the Bushnell Ballistic App. These enhancements allow for faster target acquisition and more accurate shooting.

Capped turrets protect shooters’ windage and elevation settings in the field, while lightweight and waterproof sealed aircraft-grade aluminum construction protects the entire scope from the elements. From the field to the range, the 3-9×40 rimfire riflescopes are IPX7 rated and have been designed to get the most out of rimfire rifle shooting no matter the weather conditions.

MSRP is $149.95 for the 3-9×40 rimfire riflescope with standard DZ22 reticle and $179.95 for the illuminated DZ22 reticle model. For more information about these or other Bushnell products, visit

EOTECH® and Easterseals Michigan Join Forces for Mental Health Month

EOTECH® and Easterseals Michigan Join Forces for Mental Health Month

Ann Arbor, MI (May 4, 2021) – Easterseals Michigan offers a variety of services to people with physical and mental disabilities. As COVID-19 drags into its second year, the number of people experiencing mental health issues due to the pandemic increases, which is a concerning trend. EOTECH® has teamed up with this vital organization to raise mental health awareness throughout May. 
Easterseals Michigan’s goal for this campaign is to have 5,000 people take a free, anonymous online mental health screening survey on their website. While online, participants will find a wealth of free educational resources. To achieve this lofty goal and promote its project, Easterseals Michigan receives support from community-minded companies, organizations and partners like EOTECH. 
The “Get Screened! Mental Health Matters” campaign runs during May, Mental Health Month. EOTECH, a campaign sponsor, is committed to helping people take the free, anonymous mental screening on Easterseals Michigan’s website. For every mental health screening completed on May 31st, EOTECH will generously donate $1 to help the organization reach and hopefully surpass its goal.
“EOTECH optics are a favorite of the military, law enforcement and other first responders, and people from these careers are known to suffer from depression and other mental health issues at levels higher than the national average,” said Ed Schoppman, President of EOTECH. “So, there was a natural connection for us to become involved in this critical awareness campaign.”  
Schoppman added, “Of course we hope people from all walks of life will take the screening as depression is, sadly, all-too-common. Many mental health issues are treatable, and this screening will help people access the services they may need.”
As Easterseals Michigan noted, “Behavioral health – which includes mental health, substance use, and more – is a key part of your overall well-being. Brief screenings are the quickest way to determine if you or someone you care about should connect with a behavioral health professional. This program is completely anonymous and confidential, and immediately following the brief questionnaire, you will see your results, recommendations, and key resources.”
For more information on Easterseals Michigan and to “Get Screened! Mental Health Matters,” visit

Headquartered in Ann Arbor, Michigan, EOTECH® designs, manufactures and markets electro-optical products, Vudu® rifle optics, thermal devices, and night vision systems. Due to its advanced technology, EOTECH Holographic Weapon Sights (HWS®) are among the fastest and most intuitive sighting systems on the planet. This is exactly why you’ll find them on the weapons of America’s most elite law enforcement professionals and special operations warriors. You’ll immediately see the advantage the instant you engage a target. For more information, please visit  WWW.EOTECHINC.COM

With its advanced design and high-impact, polymer construction, the EX Performance Adjustable Stock is the ideal upgrade. The stock is engineered for compatibility with MILSPEC buffer tubes, so it works on a variety of AR rifles, shotguns, and rimfire platforms. The oversized pin, durable construction, and extremely comfortable recoil pad make it an ideal option for customers building larger caliber rifles such as .308, .458 SOCOM, and even .50 cal. Designed for owner installation, the quality of its sleek industrial design and construction is evident in the details of this great product.

“Our EX Performance Adjustable Stock is a highly successful stock, in fact, our number one selling item, but we wore out the mold with the increased demand in 2020. With the number of units we produced, we were forced to cease production and rebuild the mold,” commented Gary Cauble, vice president of sales and marketing at Adaptive Tactical. “During the revamp of the mold, we decided to streamline the appearance of the stock to better match a wider variety of modern rifle receivers and consumer preferences. By doing so, we have not only been able to update the look of the product, but we have improved the mold to increase our production capacity to meet growing customer demand.”

The EX Performance Adjustable Stock was engineered with a component level focus on long-term durability and performance. The finished product is a collection of USA manufactured parts that merge to create an incredible stock. This M4-style stock features an easy-to-reach rapid adjust lever for a custom, adjustable length-of-pull. It incorporates an oversized steel extra strength adjustment pin to handle the power and energy generated by the heaviest calibers. An extra thick hexagonal non-slip vented rubber recoil pad absorbs the relentless and pounding recoil of the nastiest rifle rounds, reducing felt recoil and shooting fatigue. A pair of adjustable lever pin covers eliminate the discomfort often associated with removing adjustable rear stocks, while the integrated non-rust sling swivel stud and QD sling swivel insert make for quick and versatile sling mounting options. Glass filled nylon construction guarantees years of reliability for all seasons and conditions.

Available in Black, Flat Dark Earth (FDE), and Orange Less Lethal, the EX Performance Adjustable Stock weighs in at 12 oz. with recoil pad (8 oz. without pad) and has an MSRP of $49.99.

Adaptive Tactical’s Ex Performance Adjustable Stock creates the perfect set with the new Adaptive Tactical Lightweight Tactical Grip (LTG) for AR15/AR9 rifles and AR pistols (available in April 2021). This bundle combines the LTG and the EX Performance AR Adjustable Stock in a cost-saving, made-for-each-other set.

The LTG’s one-piece frame design reduces overall material and significantly reduces weight compared to other grip designs. Non-conductive polymer material will not retain heat nor cold and maintain a comfortable surface temperature while providing an improved grip in all weather conditions. The LTG is easily installed and includes mounting hardware. Proudly made in the U.S.A., the LTG is available in Black (AT-01900) or FDE (AT-01900-E). Bundle MSRP $55.98.

Savage Arms Debuts IMPULSE Hog Hunter

Savage Arms Debuts IMPULSE Hog Hunter

WESTFIELD, Massachusetts  – Savage Arms announces the new standard for hog guns: IMPULSE Hog Hunter. This straight-pull rifle is purpose built for thinning out wild boar. Hogs rarely appear alone, and the speed of the IMPULSE Hog Hunter’s straight-pull action and its exceptional balance will allow hunters to get back on target fast.

“Hunting hogs with a conventional bolt action rifle is highly effective, but when there is a large drove of pigs to clear out, the ability to take multiple shots is critical,” Jessica Treglia, Sr. Brand Manager at Savage Arms, said. “These new IMPULSE Hog Hunters will allow you to cycle the bolt with lightning-fast precision, stay on target without losing your sight picture, and the compact design is perfect for carrying in the dense brush hogs use for cover.”

The IMPULSE Hog Hunter is designed for efficiency. With barrel lengths as short as 18 inches, these rifles are as maneuverable as they are fast. Their heavy barrels manage heat effectively, ensuring accurate follow-up shots. And each of the new IMPULSE Hog Hunter models are chambered for proven .30 caliber cartridges.

The IMPULSE straight-pull action is bedded in an OD Green stock featuring AccuStock®. Savage’s AccuFit® technology makes adjusting length-of-pull and comb height almost as effortless as the IMPULSE’s bolt throw. And the user-adjustable AccuTrigger® can be set from 1.5 pounds to 6 pounds.

Bond Arms Rough Series Double-Barrel Handguns

Granbury, TX (May 4, 2021) – Bond Arms is known for its outstanding fit and finish on every gun they build. To create a more affordable option for budget-conscious customers without compromising features, Bond Arms trimmed down its finishing process. The Rough Series was born and included the Roughneck, Rowdy, and the newest addition, the Grizzly double-barrel guns. The result is a handgun with the same outstanding qualities inherent in every Bond Arms’ gun without all the frills. 
Each Rough Series gun undergoes a quick clean-up and deburring to knock off the sharp edges. After the initial treatment, guns are bead blasted, giving them a rough finish. The parting lines in the metal frame and trigger guard add to the cool factor. Swirly tool marks on the barrels and tiny casting imperfections and rough areas add a unique individual character to these handguns. Built-in a fraction of the time compared to standard production models, the reduced labor cost of the Rough Series guns translates into huge savings for the customer. 
The Rough Series Handguns Bond Rough Series handguns include premium features found in all their double-barrelled guns, like stainless-steel barrels and frames, cross-bolt safety, retracting firing pins, spring-loaded cam-lock lever and rebounding hammer. Rough Series guns use the same grade of stainless steel as all production models.
The Roughneck is a new type of Bond Arms’ gun. It’s built with a 2.5″ barrel, chambered for 9mm, 357/38 or 45ACP, and features a blade front sight and fixed rear sight. The compact handgun uses a textured rubber grip. The Roughneck works best with smooth-lined holsters. $269
At 5 inches long, the Rowdy is the ‘big brother’ in the line, chambered for the powerful .45 Long Colt, and 2½-inch .410 bore shotshells. A blade front sight and fixed rear sight mount directly on its 3-inch barrels. A smooth-lined holster works best. $299 
The Grizzly features several upgrades from its Rowdy cousin. Vibrant rosewood grips engraved with grizzly bear artwork, the Bond Arms name and a checkered panel, add texture and character. The pistol includes a matching leather holster embossed with a grizzly bear. Its 3-inch barrels are chambered in .45 Long Colt, and 2½-inch .410 bore shotshells. $377
The Bond Arms Rough Series are compact and rugged handguns built with the same quality parts and materials as the other Bond Arms production models. The rough finish gives each pistol its unique charm.

Ruger-57 Safety Bulletin

Ruger has discovered that a small number of Ruger-57™ pistols may have right safety levers that do not meet our specifications and may be prone to cracking. In some rare instances, the internal “leg” of the right safety lever may crack or break, rendering the manual safety ineffective. If present, this condition may cause the manual safety to appear to be functioning properly when it is not. Although only a very small number of pistols appear to be affected, Ruger is committed to safety and is asking owners of Ruger-57 pistols to immediately perform a routine function check of the safety lever to ensure its proper operation and, if necessary, sign up for this retrofit.

Potentially affected pistols include any Ruger-57 pistol with a serial number of 642-26274 or lower (including all Ruger-57 pistols with a “641” prefix). If your Ruger-57 pistol is within this range (641-00000 to 642-26274), you should follow the inspection procedure outlined in the Safety Bulletin to determine whether your pistol requires a retrofit. Ruger-57 pistols with a serial number of 642-26275 and above are not affected by this Safety Bulletin.

Details about what to look for and how to sign up for the retrofit also appear on our website at The website also contains answers to Frequently Asked Questions, a video demonstrating the inspection process, and other information that you may find helpful.

Make Range Time Rounds Count With Holosun

City of Industry, Ca (May 3, 2021) – The range is a new shooter’s best friend, and frequent visits build the confidence and skills that translate to practical use in the field. Hitting the range is often intimidating for beginners, but range days quickly become habitual with a simple system. New shooters must learn the range rules, build a systematic approach to equipment, set specific goals, and learn fundamental marksmanship skills.   Prep: Every trip to the range requires basic safety equipment. Assemble a kit with quality eye and ear protection, a case or tote for your unloaded firearm and ammunition, paper targets, and a cleaning kit.   Arrival: Every range is different, and with each comes a unique set of rules. A simple outdoor range on public land is much different from a full tactical range with interactive courses and targets. Learn the range rules, never point a firearm anywhere but downrange, and don’t rush through the process. Many ranges require a club membership or paperwork, so do your homework and arrive early to handle the liability waiver process.   Getting Started: Start simple and focus on straight-shooting in a static environment. Focus on your technique at short distances and gradually increase as you build proficiency. The grip and stance are critical, and practicing at the range and at home will form important fundamental techniques.   Setting Goals: Hand and eye coordination improve shooting and reaction times. Holosun optical sights allow you to maintain a target focus rather than front iron sight focus which improves speed, accuracy, and precision. Holosun sights adjust to the conditions with different brightness settings and multiple reticle options giving the end-user plenty of options to tailor the optic for the best personal fit. Take your firearm to the range and increase accuracy by combining great shooting techniques with a world-class red dot optic.   Accessories: Holosun optics adjust to the conditions with different brightness settings and multiple reticle options. Using a red dot optic can increase accuracy and response time for self-defense, competition, tactical shooting purposes. Designed for every experience level, Holosun optics can make every shooter faster, safer, and more accurate.

Holosun Technologies, Inc., located in City of Industry, California, is committed to creating innovative optic and laser/IR technologies that benefit a broad range of shooting, hunting, law enforcement and professional needs. Using the quality manufacturing standards demanded by some of the best-known optics brands in the world, with a wide range of affordable options, Holosun is at the forefront of development of new sight technologies. Key innovations include Shake Awake TechnologyTM, 50,000-hour battery life, Solar FailSafeTM, Multiple Reticle SystemTM (MRS), Super Green LED, and IR/Laser units that utilize the most recent advancements in laser and LED technology. At Holosun, we pride ourselves on providing cutting-edge equipment at a competitive price that astounds the competition and the end-user. For more information, please visit

The Escort BTS Bullpup Shotgun

Bentonville, AZ (May 3, 2021) -The Escort BTS bullpup offers all the perks of the VTS series shotguns in a more compact, portable package. This next-generation shotgun is available in either 12 ga or .410 cal and is offered in either black or FDE Cerakote. The inline gas piston design is mounted around the barrel, minimizing bulk and allowing the use of a proper bullpup layout. The tough polymer lower receiver also doubles as the forend grip, with soft rubber inlays for improved handling. Its magazine well is lined with durable alloy for smooth, long-lasting performance. The synthetic barrel cover features Hatsan’s patented ThermoDefend technology that absorbs and dissipates heat while containing the gas piston operating system.
Recoil control is distributed between a soft rubber buttpad and a long recoil spring located behind the gas piston. The reversible charging handle offers versatility to suit varying shooter preferences. The soft rubber pistol grip is removable and can be exchanged for one of many currently available aftermarket options to suit the individual user. The one-piece carry handle sight can be replaced with included flip-up sights for a lower profile or when using mounted optics. Picatinny rails are also located on either side of the forend to accommodate a variety of accessories.
The 12-gauge models feature an 18” barrel with removable chokes, including an extended cylinder bore choke brake that helps tame recoil with heavy shot or slugs. Also included are Full and Improved Cylinder flush-mount chokes, with additional options available from HatsanUSA. Each gun ships with two 5-round magazines, but an optional 2-round magazine is also available. The gun is chambered to accept both 2 ¾” and 3” shells and will cycle them interchangeably with no external adjustments required by the shooter.
The .410 models feature a 20” barrel with integrated choke suitable for both shot and slugs. Offering the same recoil-absorbing characteristics as the larger caliber models, this shotgun is one smooth operator. Also, it is shipped with two 5-round magazines, the optional low-capacity mag holds 3 shells. The gas piston operates in the same manner, cycling both standard and magnum loads smoothly and reliably. As with all Escort shotguns, the barrels are proof tested at the factory to ensure quality and durability. The hard chrome and/or Cerakote coatings are built to withstand the harshest conditions and look good while doing it. HatsanUSA offers a 5-year limited warranty with all Escort firearms.

NSSF PSAs Remind Recreational Shooters to Help Prevent Wildfires

NSSF reminds outdoor recreationists, including target shooters and hunters, to take precautions so they don’t accidentally ignite a wildfire.

NEWTOWN, Conn. — With 90 percent of wildland fires in the United States caused by human actions, the National Shooting Sports Foundation® is reminding outdoor recreationists, including target shooters and hunters, to take precautions so they don’t accidentally ignite a wildfire.
NSSF’s “Help Prevent Wildfires” public service announcements campaign provides video and audio PSAs, an 8.5 x 11 poster, an infographic and shareable social media posts that remind recreational shooters and other outdoor enthusiasts to be mindful of their surroundings and to take precautions, such as:

  • Being aware of restrictions on shooting and other activities in fire-prone areas
  • Not using tracer rounds, exploding targets or ammunition that is steel-jacketed or contains steel-core components
  • Knowing that a vehicle’s hot exhaust systems can ignite dry vegetation
  • Making sure all campfires and smoking materials are properly extinguished

There were more than 57,000 human-caused wildfires in 2020 that burned 10.3 million acres of land throughout the country, causing billions of dollars in damage along with hardship for both people and wildlife. Wildfires are tragic in many ways, including that in most cases they can be prevented when people pay attention to their surroundings and follow safe practices.
“After seeing the terrible destruction and heartbreak wildfires can cause, no one would want to accidentally be the cause of one,” said Joe Bartozzi, NSSF President and CEO. “As gun owners, we care about safeguarding our communities and our natural resources, and so we remind everyone to check the fire-danger levels in their area and take precautions before heading outdoors to pursue our warm-weather activities, including recreational shooting.”
NSSF encourages individuals and organizations to share the “Help Prevent Wildfires” public service announcements and infographic on their social media networks and to use the #GunOwnersCare hashtag.

NSSF Commends Sen. Cornyn’s Concealed Carry Reciprocity Legislation

For immediate release | April 30, 2021

NSSF Commends Sen. Cornyn’s Concealed Carry Reciprocity Legislation

Legislation Would End Patchwork of Confusing Gun Law for CC Permit Holders

NEWTOWN, Conn. – The NSSF®, the firearm industry’s trade association, commends U.S. Sen. John Cornyn’s (R-Texas) introduction of S. 1522, the Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act. The legislation was introduced with 30 original co-sponsors – over 30 percent of the U.S. Senate – to protect law-abiding concealed carry permit holders from being forced to navigate a patchwork of varying gun control laws when crossing state lines.

The bill aims to eliminate the confusion of varying state-by-state laws and provide protection for Second Amendment rights for permit holders. The legislation would allow handgun owners who are legally permitted and authorized by their home state to carry a concealed firearm in other states while complying with the laws of each state – much in the same way a driver’s license is recognized.

“NSSF wholeheartedly supports this long-overdue legislation to answer the problem of the confusing patchwork of laws surrounding concealed carry permits, particularly with regard to states where laws make unwitting criminals out of legal permit holders for a simple mistake of a wrong traffic turn,” said Lawrence G. Keane, NSSF Senior Vice President and General Counsel. “This legislation safeguards a state’s right to determine their own laws while protecting the Second Amendment rights of all Americans. Sen. Cornyn’s bold and steady leadership to protect Second Amendment rights and the firearm industry that provides the means to exercise those rights is noteworthy.”

Unlike other rights protected by the U.S. Constitution, the right to keep and bear arms is regulated differently by individual states. While individual rights to speech, religion and protections of Due Process or Search and Seizure are constant, gun rights vary according to the state. Reciprocity agreements exist, but not between all states and are ever-changing. That puts individuals at risk of running afoul of varying state-by-state laws when traveling and crossing borders.
