Does Height Over the Bore Matter?

Win the entire MDT chassis line-up!

There are two questions in precision shooting that have been debated for years; leading many to retreat in the Himalayan Mountains seeking guidance from the likes of Yogi Grand Master Akshar.

1. Is wind more critical at the shooting position or downrange?

2. Does height over the bore affect accuracy?

The folks at MDT tackle the later, using the world’s tallest scope base, in this excellent video.

World’s Tallest Scope Base – Does Height Over Bore Matter?

DOES HEIGHT OVER BORE MATTER? The distance or “height” of your scope over the bore of your rifle is an important factor in calculating your D.O.P.E. (Data On Previous Engagements aka, how much you need to dial your scope turret for elevation at distance), but, as long as you know the measurement, does it really matter how high or low it is? Traditionally, it was accepted that a shooter would want the scope height over bore as low as possible, this made it easier to calculate your D.O.P.E. for the moderate distances you might see hunting. However, with modern-day tools like Kestrel, or even a simple downloadable phone app to help us non-mathematicians calculate this, we wanted to explore the topic a bit more, and in true MDT fashion, take this test to the extreme. Check out the video above for our result, see you out there!

The ACSS® Raptor 5.56/.308 – Yard reticle also gives the user the ability to range and engage targets out to 600 yards with ease.

Fort Worth, TX (June 30, 2022) – Imagine it – crawling under a house on hands and knees to check the heating unit and ductwork before a big winter storm roars in. Cobwebs obscure the view in the dusty and dark crawlspace. The old-fashioned flashlight only lights up the area a few feet ahead.

U.S. LawShield® Welcomes Permitless Carry in Indiana

U.S. LawShield logo


U.S. LawShield Indiana Permitless Carry GuideLegal Defense for Self Defense®

Houston, Texas – June 30, 2022 – U.S. LawShield®, industry leader in self-defense law and America’s foremost provider of educational resources on safe firearm ownership welcomes Indiana as the 24th state to enact permitless carry, otherwise known as constitutional carry. Effective July 1, 2022, Indiana House Bill 1296, “Indiana Permitless Carry,” repeals the law that requires a person to obtain a license to carry a handgun in the state.

According to U.S. LawShield CEO P.J. Hermosa, “Folks tend to think the new permitless carry legislation in Indiana is simple, but if they don’t understand its complexities, their actions could lead to trouble. We educate people on what is required to be legally armed and how to keep themselves and their families safe. Just because a license isn’t required doesn’t mean there aren’t restrictions, and it’s important to consider that ignorance of the law is not an excuse for breaking it.”

Hermosa continued, “The experienced U.S. LawShield Independent Program Attorneys who wrote the book on Indiana gun laws spell out exactly what you need to know to stay on the right side of the law in the Indiana Permitless Carry Guide. And, we encourage responsible gun owners to educate themselves on what the legislation means for them as residents of Indiana.”

U.S. LawShield Indiana Permitless Carry Guide

As the authoritative source of all things permitless carry, the U.S. LawShield Indiana Permitless Carry Guide answers questions including:

· What is permitless carry in Indiana?

· Why is a license to carry a handgun still important?

· Can you have a gun in your car without a concealed carry license in Indiana?

· Who can and can’t carry under Indiana permitless carry?

· What weapons are covered by Indiana permitless carry?

Successful 27th edition of EUROSATORY

Paris, 30 June 2022

Successful 27th edition of EUROSATORY
after a 4-year absence!

After a four-year absence due to the health crisis, the 2022 edition of the international land and airland defense and security exhibition was eagerly awaited by the entire international community of the sector.

In the particular context of conflicts at the gates of Europe, this edition is one of the most significant in the history of the exhibition:

1,743 companies and more than 100,000 professionals gathered in Paris from 13 to 17 June for this must-attend event, which brought together all the players in the global defense and security market.
250 delegations from 96 countries, high-level executives and decision-makers from the public and private sectors, and project leaders came to the event over the 5 days.
The success of this record-breaking edition lies in the “reunion” and meetings between exhibitors, partners and international visitors eager to discover the latest developments in the global defense and security capabilities. Busy stands, busy exhibitors and crowded aisles were the hallmarks of the five-day event.
“The exhibition was very qualitative, with stands designed and decorated for the occasion. For this comeback edition, exhibitors put a lot of energy into welcoming visitors and official delegations. Everyone was happy to be at Eurosatory 2022”, said Jérémy Vigna, Sales Director of the exhibition.
For the first time, the exhibition was inaugurated by the President of the French Republic, Emmanuel Macron. In the context of the war in Ukraine, the President of the Republic took advantage of the exhibition’s inauguration to recall the central role of the defense and security industry in the preservation of national and European sovereignty.
Visitors discovered the first French demonstrator of capabilities to respond to all types of humanitarian, industrial and/or environmental crises.
75 companies exhibited in the « HELPED – Humanitary Emergency Logistic Project and Eco Development » area, to present the whole spectrum of global capacities needed to support populations in case of major crisis and to restore the environment.
A global response designed specifically for the exhibition.
Foresight, the new post-crisis world order, experience sharing and the dissemination of professional practices suitable for each profession were at the heart of 110 international conferences held throughout the exhibition. More than 300 speakers from all over the world came to share their vision and reflect on the evolution of Defense and Security.
The Eurosatory Lab, a space dedicated to startups, attracted many visitors. As well as the pitching program, which allowed to discover many innovative startups during the different sessions on current themes: performance, maintenance, robotics, security and safety of territories, artificial intelligence…

In conclusion, this 2022 edition, which stands out as a record year in terms of attendance, was part of the momentum of three major global trends: the return of inter-state conflicts, global warming, and the digital revolution.

Charles Beaudouin, the exhibition’s CEO, concludes, “Held in the context of a new world order, Eurosatory reinforces its position as the world’s most important D&S event, setting trends in the management of all crises, from war to environmental disasters”.

We look forward to seeing you from 17 to 21 June 2024 at the forthcoming Eurosatory.

Key figures:

  • 1,743 exhibitors from 62 countries with 62% of international
  • 39 national pavilions
  • 62,000 professional visitors from 150 countries (↑ + 8.7% vs. 2018)

It’s been a while since I’ve had a shoot the shit and I’d like to tackle some of the overlooked topics stemming from abortion discussions. For starters I want to introduce new readers to what a shoot the shit is all about.

Readers, a shoot the shit is a social event during which any topic can be discussed. The participants don’t have to have any knowledge about the subject, they’re free to make any unsupported comment, use uncensored profanity, insult anyone they wish or change the subject at any point during the shoot the shit. It’s been proven that the efficacy of a good shoot the shit is superior to paying a jackass who majored in psychology so they could understand themselves $150+ per hour to do what you can do at a shoot the shit. I’ll illustrate that point later in my article.

The hottest argument facing this nation today is abortion. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that abortion is not enshrined in the Constitution saying that it’s a matter for the states to decide and or regulate. Well, as expected, the defecation hit the ventilation with groups marching, rioting and some threatening a sex strike. The abortion debate is both emotional and complex; at one extreme is the idea that abortions should be completely unrestricted at the other is that abortions are murder. I’ll set all of the ideology aside and talk about pregnancy for a bit.

Fertilization Of Human Egg Cell By Spermatozoan, 3D Illustration Stock  Photo, Picture And Royalty Free Image. Image 94032395.

blastula | biology | Britannica

sperm cell binds to female egg cell Blastula

When humans engage in unprotected sex, the male sperm cell binds to the female egg cell, at this point fertilization occurs. Shortly thereafter, within 5 to 7 days after fertilization succeeds blastulation occurs; it is at this point of development that biology classifies the organism as meeting the definition of life: responsiveness to the environment, growth and change, ability to reproduce, have a metabolism and breathe, maintain homeostasis, being made of cells and passing traits onto offspring. Based on the biological definition of life, the human blastula is a living organism. This has given rise to post-coital contraceptives like the following brands: Next Choice One Dose, My Way, Take Action, After Pill, EContra Ez, Aftera, ella, Plan B One-Step. These contraceptives are most effective when used on the third day after unprotected sex, but they’re not intended to replace a systematic contraception regimen.

The abortion argument will go on “ad infinitum” driving protests like the sex strike. The movement proposes to derail the anti-abortion argument by denying sex partners coital relations; however, the economics principle of substitution comes in to play and we’ll see a rise in fellatio, cunnilingus and yes buggery.

By introducing a sex strike, protestors will drive oral sex frequency rates significantly higher.

The 1994 study by Laumann et al. surveyed 3,432 Americans aged 18 to 59. According to a Kinsey summary, the survey found that “90% of men and 86% of women have had sex in the past year,” whereas “27% of men and 19% of women have had oral sex in the past year.”

If statistically significant, one can expect the frequency of oral sex by men and women will dramatically increase. That change alone presents some interesting problems, for example;

“1. Oral sex is linked to throat cancer.

Cancer? Yes, you can get throat cancer from oral sex, says American Cancer Society Chief Medical Officer Otis Brawley, MD.

It’s not oral sex, per se, that causes cancer, but the human papillomavirus (HPV), which can be passed from person to person during sex, including oral sex.

Researchers have found that some cancers of the oropharynx (the middle of the throat) and tonsils are probably caused by a certain type of human papillomavirus (HPV). HPV is common, but it doesn’t always cause cancer. If you aren’t exposed to HPV during oral sex, you’re not at risk for cancer…”

There may also be a psychological impact for example;

“2. Oral sex enhances some adult relationships, strains others.

Among adults, oral sex causes stress for some couples and enhances intimacy for others, says sex therapist Louanne Cole Weston, PhD, of Fair Oaks, Calif. She says stress about oral sex often has to do with one partner’s concerns about hygiene.

“One person will not want to receive it because he or she worries about the partner’s reaction,” Weston says.

Some people may also be anxious about their performance — doing it well enough to please a partner — or about responding appropriately to receiving it. “Some people can’t just let go and receive,” Weston says…”

In evaluating whether to substitute coital sex with oral sex , olfactory evaluation of the recipient plays an important role in reaching the decision.

Buggery or Anal Sex

Once considered taboo, is far more prevalent than previously thought; for example, the National Library of Medicine reports;

“Heterosexual anal intercourse (HAI) is not an uncommon behavior with 36% of women and 44% of men 25–44 years old in the United States reporting ever having HAI in their lifetime…”

“…Based on a meta-analysis, acquisition of HIV is 18-times as likely to occur during receptive HAI as during receptive vaginal intercourse among heterosexuals…”

Other risks stem from engaging in HAI and failing to ensure an empty bowel.

As you can see a sex strike does not result in a loss of sexual gratification and in some cases may even be more gratifying without risking an involuntary pregnancy.

Have a great weekend and a safe 4th of July, but remember that if your partner is part of the sex strike movement you have other options.

EOTECH Awarded SBIR Phase II Contract

EOTech logo" Photographic Print by UnPEngineer | Redbubble

Plymouth, MI (June 2022) – EOTECH, inventor and original manufacturer of Holographic technology for use on military, LE, hunting, and consumer firearms, has been awarded a follow up SBIR (Small Business Innovation Research) contract for the development of a dual-color holographic head-up display for increased situational awareness and targeting in military aircraft.

This Phase II contract funds further development to produce a system that allows more information to be acquired faster without obscuring the pilot field of view, which leads to efficient decisions and reduced cognitive load on the end-user. Commercially, the developed technology may adapt to existing firearm weapon sights, and could provide customers with new functionality, such as overlaying waypoints or caliber data onto their field of view.

“We are extremely proud to have received this Phase II contract and are excited to continue developing this technology into a solution that enhances the performance of our pilots,” said Dennis Finnegan, President of EOTECH GOV. “EOTECH has been at the forefront of holography, dating back to the 1950’s, and has dedicated its existence to providing tools and technology that improve the performance and increase the safety of our warfighters.”

The SBIR program is intended to support scientific excellence and technological innovation that is moving from the lab to the market. Investing federal research and development funds into startups and small businesses yield positive results. It fosters a strong national economy and stimulates the creation of novel products, services, and solutions in the private sector; strengthens the role of small business in meeting federal research and development needs; increases the commercial application of federally supported research results; and develops and increases the US workforce, especially by fostering and encouraging participation by socially and economically disadvantaged and women-owned small businesses.

Independence is a purpose and a call to those who stand by and stand up for the principles this country was founded on. For those who know the burden of carrying their own cross, we are forever grateful. We too have carried the flag. We understand that one day we may be draped in it should we fall for what we love. The American flag sits on the backs of our warfighters as a reminder that when the ultimate sacrifice is made, it ushers you home.

Winchester Announces the Signing of ISSF Para Trap Shooter Sophia Bultema.


Para Trap Shooter Sophia Bultema Joins Team Winchester

EAST ALTON, IL (June 29, 2022) — Winchester announces the signing of ISSF para trap shooter Sophia Bultema. The 18-year-old sport shooter hails from Colorado Springs, Colorado, and will be shooting the world-famous AA target loads at the upcoming National Championships at Hillsdale College in Hillsdale, Michigan. She will also represent the U.S. and Team Winchester at the World Championships in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates.
Sophia recently competed at the World Cup France, where she set the junior world record in qualification and the final, becoming the first woman in para trap history to make a World Cup final.
“Sophia has an inspirational story of overcoming adversity while maintaining an excellent outlook and striving to do her very best,” said Matt Campbell, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Winchester Ammunition.  “She is an exceptional sport shooter and we’re extremely proud to have her as a member of Team Winchester and ambassador of the shooting sports.”
After living the first six years in an orphanage in China because of her limb difference, Sophia was adopted by her parents and brought home to Colorado Springs. Sophia has grown up in a shooting sports family, receiving a toy shotgun during her first Christmas in the states.
Sophia began competing with her high school team through the Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) because shooting was a sport where people can still compete with their peers despite physical impairments. Soon after starting with the high school team, Sophia was introduced to para trap, where she has earned the right to represent the United States in this emerging sport that is on track to be added to the Paralympic Games.

About Para Trap

Open to athletes who have a physical impairment, the discipline of para trap shooting is based on the Olympic trap discipline, differing in only some equipment and qualification requirements. Athletes use a shotgun to hit “clays,” which are propelled into the air from machines on the ground and strive to make as many “hits” (when a clay is broken) as possible. During the competition, athletes shoot from five central positions on the range and shoot at a total of 125 clays in the qualification round.

About Winchester Ammunition

Winchester is the largest small caliber ammunition enterprise in the world and the leader in delivering innovative ammunition products to hunters, sport shooters, law enforcement and the U.S. Warfighter. The 156-year-old Winchester brand is built on integrity, hard work and a deep focus on its loyal customers.

CZ Offers Match-Grade Chamber in 457 Varmint Precision Chassis MTR

The enhanced accuracy of this .22 LR chassis gun makes it an affordable, ready- to-shoot competition rifle

CZ Offers Match-Grade Chamber in 457 Varmint Precision Chassis MTR

Kansas City, KS (June 27, 2022) – On the heels of CZ’s introduction of the 457 Varmint Precision Trainer MTR comes the 457 Varmint Precision Chassis MTR in 22 LR. This precision rimfire is packed with features that make it a serious competition gun, but with a price tag nowhere near that of a custom rimfire rifle.

While CZ is known for their tight chamber tolerances that aid in making their rifles some of the most accurate production rimfires available, they first debuted an even tighter ‘Match’ chamber in the popular 457 Varmint MTR. This wood-stocked plinker became a favorite among shooters wanting even more accuracy than the standard 457 delivers.

The MTR variants of the VPT and VPC allow rimfire competition shooters to buy an affordable, match-chambered rifle that’s ready to win competitions right out of the box, eliminating the perceived need to upgrade any major components, putting both 457 variants a step above the competition.

The 457 VPC MTR comes with CZ’s famous cold hammer-forged and lapped barrel, 16 inches in length and with 1/2×28 threads for mounting a suppressor or muzzle device. It rides in an incredibly stable aluminum chassis system that is equipped with an adjustable Luth-AR stock, and the rifle features a fully adjustable trigger, a 5-round detachable box magazine and integrated 11mm dovetails for scope installation, coming in at an MSRP of $1,225.

Like CZ’s line of factory-tuned premium pistols, the 457 VPC MTR features orange accents to show that it is a special version of an already premium rifle. The VPC has an orange trigger guard, making it easily recognized on the gun rack and at the shooting range.

CZ-USA 457 Varmint Precision Chassis MTR Specs:

  • · SKU: 02361
  • · Chambering: 22 LR
  • · Action: Bolt
  • · Barrel: Cold Hammer Forged, Factory-Lapped, Match Chamber
  • · Barrel Length: 16 in.
  • · Twist Rate: 1:16
  • · Magazine Type: Detachable
  • · Magazine Capacity: 5 Rounds (Single shot, 10-round and 25-round magazines available)
  • · Stock: Luth-AR Adjustable
  • · Overall Length: 34 in.
  • · Weight: 7 lbs.
  • · Trigger: Adjustable
  • · Sights: No Sights; Integrated 11MM Dovetail for Optic
  • · Safety: Two-Position, Push to Fire
  • · Misc.: Muzzle Threaded 1/2×28 for Suppressor
  • · MSRP: $1,225.00

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.

ODU Robotic Autonomous Systems (RAS)

Mars rover. Elements of this image furnished by NASA

Robotic Autonomous Systems (RAS)

Armed forces around the world are beginning to integrate robotic and autonomous military systems and electric vehicles into their operations. Once a vision of the future, these technologies have now become reality in international conflicts and deployments. Armies and other emergency forces will increasingly use RAS, for example, for disaster control and explosive ordnance disposal. Unmanned, computer-controlled vehicles can provide situational awareness or assistance in remote regions. Already, RAS are being deployed for border surveillance and to provide support in hostile environments, particularly in extreme climatic conditions or in response to heightened military threats. A wide range of sensors and systems are used to survey and reconnoiter entire areas, thus facilitating the mission. These systems can help emergency responders perform tasks more safely and efficiently. Typical application areas include cargo mules for transporting supplies, medical evacuations, and remote-controlled combat systems. These unmanned ground vehicles must be able to detect obstacles and people so that hazards can be eliminated.

Armies must rely on innovations and cutting-edge technologies of this kind to eliminate the need for “boots on the ground”. However, this also entails a risk that should not be underestimated. The lack of personnel in the field means that certain processes must be redesigned. In the event of a system failure, service or maintenance personnel may be unable to enter the area of operations directly due to a hazardous situation. Therefore, the interfaces to the different situational awareness systems or drive technologies must be designed in a way that guarantees maximum reliability – even under the most adverse environmental conditions and when subjected to extreme vibrations. In areas where a decision must be made by humans, it must be possible to flexibly switch over to a remote drive-by-wire or follow-me function, depending on the system. The latter is only possible by coupling 360° all-round-vision cameras and infrared and laser technology to the integrated soldier systems.

Interfaces must therefore be developed to match the respective applications and connect the deployed systems in a fail-safe manner. Highly robust, reliable, and application-specific connector systems and cable assemblies are required to transmit mission-critical data.

Robust under high loads and extreme temperatures, resistant to dust, water and vibrations – this is what ODU connector systems stand for. Optimized for demanding applications and transmission reliability even under the most technically challenging environmental conditions – as successfully demonstrated in projects such as the Colossus firefighting robot and the Mars rover. We were able to meet the extremely demanding requirements with regard to high-speed data technology and high-frequency transmissions thanks to our expertise in the field of Dismounted Soldier Systems (DSS) as well as our in-depth understanding of the operational and environmental conditions to which both user and device are exposed.

ODU connectors for military, security, and communication applications provide a high level of signal integrity thanks to 360° shielding. Different transfer protocols (USB/HDMI/Displayport) ensure high-speed data transmissions that are also protected against access by third parties and standard interfaces. Pin-and-groove coding and color coding provide extra support in extreme situations and prevent incorrect mating. Even in the smallest installation space, different transmission variants can be individually configured. The rugged ODU housings are waterproof up to IP6K9K, non-reflective, and available with various connection types and locking mechanisms.

ODU Group: global representation with perfect connections

The ODU Group is one of the world’s leading suppliers of connector systems, employing 2,500 people around the world. In addition to its company headquarters in Muehldorf a. Inn (Germany), ODU also has an international distribution network and production sites in Sibiu/Romania, Shanghai/China, and Tijuana/Mexico. ODU combines all relevant areas of expertise and key technologies including design and development, machine tooling and special machine construction, injection, stamping, turning, surface technology, assembly and cable assembly. The ODU Group sells its products globally through its sales offices in China, Denmark, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Korea, Romania, Sweden, UK and the US, as well as through numerous international sales partners. ODU connectors ensure a reliable transmission of power, signals, data and media for a variety of demanding applications including medical technology, military and security, automotive, industrial electronics, and test and measurement.

Henry Kicks Off Million Dollar Silver Anniversary Pledge

Henry Repeating Arms

Henry Repeating Arms Kicks Off Million Dollar Pledge with Donation to Tunnel to Towers Foundation

Tunnel to Towers Foundation

Henry CEO & Founder Anthony Imperato Presents $50,000 Donation

Staten Island, N.Y. – June 28, 2022 – In celebration of Henry Repeating Arms’ 25th anniversary, CEO and Founder Anthony Imperato recently presented a $50,000 check to Tunnel to Towers Foundation Chairman and CEO Frank Siller; the first donation of a $1,000,000 Silver Anniversary pledge to various charities through the company’s Guns For Great Causes program.

The Tunnel to Towers Foundation was founded in December 2001 by the surviving siblings of Stephen Siller, a member of the New York City Fire Department whose heroic actions on September 11, 2001, resonate throughout the city and the country to this day. On his way to a golf outing with his brothers after working his shift with Brooklyn’s Squad 1, the World Trade Center’s North Tower was attacked, and Stephen answered his call of duty. After turning around to grab his gear and realizing he could not drive through the closed Brooklyn Battery Tunnel, Stephen strapped his equipment to his back, ran through the tunnel on foot, and ultimately laid down his life to save others. In honor of Stephen’s sacrifice, Tunnel to Towers pursues a mission of supporting the country’s first responders, military veterans, and their families with mortgage-free homes, having supplied over 450 to date.

Henry Repeating Arms, one of the country’s leading firearms manufacturers, will offer 1,000 unique Henry Golden Boy Silver Anniversary edition rifles for sale in the coming weeks. Sold exclusively online, 100% of the proceeds will benefit charities supported by the company’s Guns For Great Causes program – including sick children’s hospitals, military veterans, law enforcement and 1st responder organizations, wildlife conservation, hunting and shooting sports education and pro-Second Amendment endeavors. To be notified when this limited-edition rifle becomes available, visit henryusa.com and sign up for the email newsletter.

With a 4-Star Exceptional rating from Charity Navigator, donors can confidently give directly to the Tunnel to Towers Foundation. Visit t2t.org to make a one-time donation or extend the generosity with a monthly $11 contribution.

Commemorating Independence Day with a Reimagined Fisher Space Pen® Classic

Commemorating Independence Day with a Reimagined Fisher Space Pen® Classic

FSP logo Blue w Red dot no background.png

Boulder City, NV (June 28, 2022) – Everybody loves the Fourth of July festivities–backyard parties, barbeque, beer, parades and fireworks. What’s not to like? However, we should never forget the meaning and reasons we celebrate this holiday as we enjoy the fun. In the United States, we celebrate the Fourth of July as Independence Day, the day when America was born as its own independent country. On July 4th, 1776, the Continental Congress unanimously approved the Declaration of Independence from the tyrannical rule of the British Empire under King George III. As expressed in this one of the most important historical documents, liberty and equality remain at the core of the United States as we uphold them to this day.

To celebrate this 4th of July, Fisher Space Pen® presents “We The People” & “United We Stand/Divided We Fall” Bullet Space Pens. The matte black Bullet Space Pen, one of the Fisher Space Pen’s absolute classics, is reimagined with one of these two patriotic insignias to embody the American spirit. The “We the People” pen is laser engraved on one side of the pen, while the “United We Stand/Divided We Fall” design is laser engraved on each side of the model. Ever since the conception of the original Bullet Space Pen in 1948, the Bullet Space Pen has become the most popular one that set an industry standard of excellence for its timeless design and unmatched functionality.

Proudly made in the USA using materials sourced both in the States and globally, Fisher Bullet Space Pens boasts a near-zero percent failure rate and fantastic usability in many circumstances: in zero gravity, underwater, at extremely hot or cold temperatures, and at any angles, including upside down. With the display of constitutionally and historically significant “We The People” and “United We Stand/Divided We Fall” scripts on the pen itself, this pen will be a daily reminder of whom the power belongs to and why we need to continue to stand and work together as the American people.

Fisher’s July 4th promotion offers this special Bullet Space Pen at the market price of $37 and the 17.76% discount promotion that signifies the year of the Declaration of Independence. Gift wrapping is available at an additional cost. These commemorative Bullet Space Pens are affordable, classic, and reliable writing instruments. This pen would make anyone proud to hold it in their pocket to represent the values we hold dear for the country we love.

These pens are the perfect tool for trade professionals, first responders, military, rugged outdoor enthusiasts, trekkers, backpackers, industrial manufacturers, underwater divers and anyone who values a pen that doesn’t fail.

Guard Your Yard With Skeeter Hawk

Guard Your Yard with Skeeter Hawk

Fort Worth, Texas (June 28, 2022) – With summer weather upon us, it’s time to spend the days outdoors and in short sleeves. Along with the warm weather and blooming nature, there’s also an annual nuisance making a return appearance – mosquitoes and other flying insects.

As families enjoy being outside, they will also need to guard against flying bugs and pests, and the folks that can help with that are the makers of Skeeter Hawk.

Skeeter Hawk’s complete flying pest defense systems include zappers, traps, bait stations, and wearable repellents that protect your family from the danger of mosquitoes and harmful chemicals everywhere they go: on the patio, around the perimeter of your home, in nature, and even on your person.

Skeeter Hawk zappers feature 360° UV light that attract moths, June bugs, mosquitoes and thousands of other flying pests. Once attracted, bugs are zapped by the electrical grid, eliminating the need for any swatting and smacking on your part. Skeeter Hawk even has a rechargeable electric hand zapper racket for those times when you want to take the zapping into your own hands.

Their patented LED-based, dual-band UV technology is highly attractive to the vast majority of flying insects, including mosquitoes. Their vertical grid design makes their units more efficient and easier to clean while keeping your outdoor time pest-free.

For those who prefer a whisper-quiet solution, Skeeter Hawk offers a line of traps. Each one incorporates UV light and a whisper-quiet fan that attracts and traps a variety of pests in your backyard, around pools and patios, including mosquitoes, house flies, fruit flies, June bugs and more.

To protect your backyard area, the Skeeter Hawk mosquito bait stations are just the thing; using UV light technology and a natural solution to draw in pests. The all-natural solution they feed on kills them off before they can breed again.

Skeeter Hawk wearable repellent wristbands and carabiners use a blend of essential oils that repel insects effectively. They are the only wearable repellents utilizing all essential oils not dominated by citronella. Their ingredients—geraniol, lemongrass oil, and citronella oil—have proven to be more effective than citronella alone at repelling mosquitoes and won’t leave you smelling like a chemical plant.

From zappers to wearable repellents and traps to bait stations, Skeeter Hawk offers customized flying pest systems for everyone. Find the system of Skeeter Hawk products that will work for you and your family by visiting https://skh.acgbrands.com/en_US/find-your-system/.

About Skeeter Hawk:

Skeeter Hawk is a full line of mosquito flying insect defense products that combine safe, all-natural ingredients with powerful elimination technology to provide effective protection free from harmful chemicals and foul odors. Skeeter Hawk is the only leader in insect defense brands that uses patent-pending dual band LED technology for its UV attractant products. Additionally, Skeeter Hawk’s proprietary repellent formula is the only wearable repellent made of all-natural essential oils that is not dominated by citronella, a combination which has proven to be more effective than citronella alone. Skeeter Hawk is owned by Alliance Sports Group, L.P., a U.S.-based company. Visit us at https://skh.acgbrands.com/en_US/

NILO Celebrates 70 Years of Hunting, Shooting Sports and Conservation Education Excellence

This year, NILO turns the landmark age of 70.

NILO Celebrates 70 Years of Hunting, Shooting Sports and Conservation Education Excellence

EAST ALTON, IL (June 27, 2022) — In 1952, the late John Olin, then-president of Olin Industries, Winchester’s parent company, had a vision of linking hunting, shooting, champion gun dogs and conservation and began transforming 650 acres of barren pasture in Brighton, Illinois, near the Mississippi River into an ideal habitat of fields, timber and water. This year, the NILO he made turns the landmark age of 70, watch the NILO short film.
From the beginning, NILO (Olin spelled backward) has had a strong connection to Winchester. It has been the testing grounds for legendary Winchester ammunition products including AA® shotshells, and a prime destination to learn about the rich Winchester history. As one of the nation’s most renowned hunting and shooting preserves, NILO has played host to celebrities in sports and entertainment, famous outdoor writers, as well as political dignitaries and corporate leaders. Even more important, NILO continues to be a prime destination for the general hunting and shooting public.
October to March, hunters, with veteran guides and NILO’s famed Labrador retrievers, experience some of the finest pheasant and thrilling chukar hunting. Throughout the year, there are opportunities to shoot trap and skeet, sporting clays, 5-stand, and crazy quail on its pristine grounds. Additionally, special events — such as the NILO Open and the Kids & Clays Shoot — are regularly held. NILO also accommodates groups or individuals for shooting instruction from certified instructors.
The welcome sign is out at historic NILO, and the NILO team will arrange your memorable day or two at the farm, where you’ll find the traditions of hunting, conservation and the shooting sports alive and well that have always been the pride of Winchester.
Come experience NILO! Book a hunt, schedule a time to shoot, visit the famous NILO kennels and home of legendary Labrador King Buck, enjoy some the finest hospitality and fine cooking, and be outdoors with family and friends. It’s all here at NILO! To learn more about NILO, visit NILOFarms.com.

About NILO

NILO is open to the public year-round by reservation and on select shooting days for sporting clays, trap, skeet and 5-stand. Hunting season is October 1-March 31 for pheasant, chukar and flighted ducks. To learn more or to make a reservation, visit www.nilofarms.com.

EAST ALTON, IL (June 27, 2022) — Event number four of the NSCA Championship Tour, Powered by Winchester, is complete, and Team Winchester shooter Joseph Fanizzi achieved high honors as the event champion. The South Central Regional was hosted by Providence Hill Farm Sporting Club in Jackson, Mississippi, with over 550 shooters participating.

A shoot-off ensued, and Fanizzi added a Regional Championship trophy to his already impressive list of achievements for the year.

OUTDOOR ADVENTURE: Serve & Built to Endure

Canvas Cutter Burro Duffel is Engineered to Serve and Built to Endure

Versatile Hybrid Duffel-Backpack Design Combines Maximum Utility with Extreme Longevity

Elk Ridge, UT (June 24, 2022) – There’s a lot of talk today about less being more. At Canvas Cutter, we’re all for simplicity, but also understand there are no shortcuts when it comes to executing products that exceed the expectations of outdoors enthusiasts. So, in the realm of something as seemingly mundane as a duffel bag, we suppose a lesser bag is okay for anyone with lesser expectations pursuing less-demanding adventures in less-extreme environments. For all others, we offer the Canvas Cutter Burro Duffel.

Perfect for backcountry hunters, wandering anglers, serious campers, cowboys, trekkers and world travelers, The Burro Duffel features a generous 3,750 cubic-inch volume and is designed and crafted top-to-bottom with the same rugged durability Canvas Cutter customers have come to expect fom our bedroll products. Large enough to hold several days of clothing while remaining small enough to carry-on commercial flights, the right-sized 26”x12”x12” Burro Duffel combines maximum versatility with workmanlike durability and longevity to withstand years of abuse. 

Crafted from the same durable 12-oz. canvas used in our Dominator 2.0 and Fortress 2.0 bedrolls, The mule-tough Burro is highly waterproof with taped seams, covered waterproof zippers and a resilient interior coating that work together to protect valuable contents from Mother Nature’s worst. Premium SBS zippers, sliders and guards operate smoothly, even when splattered by any form of dirt that defines your adventure.

Featuring padded and adjustable hideaway backpack straps that turn the Burro Duffel into a backpack that actually looks, fits and feels like, well, a backpack, the versatile Burro makes travel comfortable, convenient, and hands free. In addition to the cavernous main pocket, The Burro features a zippered end boot pocket that doubles as extra dirty clothes storage; a zippered bottom laptop pocket; a zippered side pocket; and a quick-access zippered pocket on the front to hold keys, wallets, passports, and other essential small items. For additional utility, The Burro features an external daisy chain for fast and secure attachment of additional gear and accessories. Adjustable interior and exterior nylon compression straps, carry handles, threads, and hardware are equally robust and executed to eliminate the weak spots that are the common demise of lesser duffel bags.

The Burro Duffel Features & Specs

Main Material: 12-oz PU1000 canvas with resilient waterproof coating
Zippers: Covered waterproof SBS zippers and sliders and guards that operate smoothly in dust, sand, or mud
Four external zippered pockets for organization and utility
Padded, adjustable hideaway shoulder straps for comfortable, hands-free transport as a backpack
Total Volume: 3750 cubic inches/61.5 liters for multi-day outdoors use or air travel
Dimensions: 26” x 12” x 12”
Weight: 3.5 lbs.

More durability and more utility for more adventure, the Canvas Cutter Burro is a duffel bag that does more and does it better thanks to its thoughtful design, extremely capable and durable materials and components, and carefully executed craftsmanship.
