SAAMI Announces Additions of Alan Serven and Alexander ‘Nico’ Wirtz to Staff

NEWTOWN, Conn. – The Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers’ Institute® is pleased to announce two new additions to staff — Alan Serven as Senior Director of Technical Affairs and Alexander “Nico” Wirtz as Director of International Affairs. Both will begin their SAAMI® duties on May 1.

Serven and Wirtz are very familiar with the important work of SAAMI, having been involved with the organization for a number of years.

“We are pleased to have two respected, experienced professionals like Alan and Nico join the SAAMI team,” said Joe Bartozzi, SAAMI President and CEO. “Their skills will greatly benefit the members of our industry as well as our organization.”

As a 25-year employee of Remington Arms Company, continuing with Vista Outdoor, Serven has developed and contributed his technical knowledge in a variety of positions. He has served on SAAMI committees and brings experience in the design, manufacture and testing of smokeless propellant, small arms ammunition and sporting rifles to this new role. “To be able to utilize the knowledge gained through almost 40 years of practical experience to the benefit of the technical committee amongst SAAMI member companies is a truly exciting opportunity,” said Serven.

Having consulted for Fortune 500 companies for more than a decade, and currently serving as a consultant to SAAMI, Wirtz has demonstrated his in-depth understanding of the structures and processes of international organizations, European governments and NGOs. Wirtz will apply his experience in coalition building and strategic communications, as well as his ability to navigate complex policy issues and political environments at the United Nations, the European Union and national governments on behalf of SAAMI. “This is a pivotal time for the industry at the international level, and I am thrilled to formally join an organization that does such important work on behalf of its member companies,” said Wirtz.


The Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers’ Institute, founded in 1926 at the request of the federal government, is dedicated to creating and promulgating technical, performance and safety standards for firearms, ammunition and components, and is committed to being the preeminent global resource for the safe and responsible transportation, storage and use of these products.

Recurrent Training Courses for Drone Pilots Available Online

FAA logo

News & Update

Girl Flying Drone over city

Recurrent Training Courses for Drone Pilots Available Online

Drone pilots who have Part 107 Remote Pilot Certification can now take their required training courses online. The training ensures that they have the knowledge necessary to operate in accordance with the Operations Over People rule when it becomes effective on April 21, 2021.

The training is free and available on the FAA Safety Team (FAASTeam) website. There are three courses:

Drone pilots who do not hold a current Remote Pilot Certification and want to operate under Part 107 must take the Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) Initial Aeronautical Knowledge Test online through an FAA-Approved Knowledge Testing Center. Knowledge tests may be scheduled on the Airman Certificate Testing Service (ACTS) website. The test has a fee associated with it and is valid for 24 calendar months.

After the new rule takes effect on April 21, Part 107 remote pilots who have completed the training will be allowed to operate over people, moving vehicles and at night without a waiver under certain conditions. The FAA will accept airspace authorization requests from remote pilots to operate in controlled airspace at night as long as they have completed the updated testing or training requirements. An overview of the Operations Over People rule is available on the FAA website.

The FAA is expecting an increase in traffic to the FAASTeam site with the release of this training.  As such, remote pilots may experience technical difficulties while accessing the online courses and are encouraged to access the training outside of regular business days. For general inquiries on these new regulations and other UAS inquiries, please call 844-FLY-MY-UA or email the FAA.

Team Federal Shines at Superstition Mountain Mystery 3-Gun Match

ANOKA, Minnesota – April 8, 2021 – Team Federal had an excellent showing at the 25th Anniversary of the Superstition Mountain Mystery 3-Gun Match held at Rio Salado Sportsman’s Club in Mesa, Arizona. Federal Ammunition was a premier match sponsor for a third consecutive year. This large event brings together the nation’s top 3-gun shooters and is the longest running 3-Gun match in the country.
Federal Ammunition Brand Ambassadors Dakota Overland and Josh Froelich performed very well. Overland won High Junior and High Lady in Tactical 3-Gun Division. Josh Froelich won 4th Place in the Open Division. “This competition was ideal for testing equipment and shooting skills with a mix of long-range targets along with close-up, fast-paced shooting requirements. Shooters really had to have their gear and skills tuned in for this match,” said Froelich. “I was dialed in with Federal Premium 73-grain Gold Medal Berger in my rifle and 130-grain Federal Syntech in my pistol.”
“We were proud to have supported the SMM3G match again. As their 25 consecutive years would suggest, this match has proven to be one of the premier 3-Gun events in the country,” said Federal Shooting Sports Promotions Manager Jason Spradling. “Our Team Federal shooters do a fantastic job representing our brand wherever they go. It’s great to see them perform well in such a high-profile, challenging match. Special congratulations go out to Alysia Burrows and Tony Holmes for their category wins.”
Alysia Burrows took home High Lady honors in the Stealth 2-Gun category. “The 69-grain .223 Rem. Gold Medal rounds worked fantastically well. We had to shoot moving c-zone steel at 300 yards and static steel ranging out to 500 yards. It’s nice to have ammo that you can depend on to get the job done,” said Burrows. “Syntech Action Pistol rounds ran flawlessly as well and kept our guns running without having to stop and clean them mid-match. Amazing ammo makes amazing shooting possible.”
Tony Holmes earned High Senior honors and took 14th Place in the Open Division. “I run Federal American Eagle 223 ammo with the 55-grain FMJ bullet in my rifle and Federal Premium Gold Medal Grand Handicap loads in my 12 gauge,” said Holmes. “My 38 Super handloads utilize Federal components. All my ammo functioned to perfection, as usual.”
Other Team Federal highlights included Tucker Schmidt – 6th Place Open Division and Chris Sechiatano – 4th Place Stealth 2-Gun Division
“Federal Premium continues to provide the most consistent, reliable ammunition available to competitive shooters. Our team’s performance at the 2021 SMM3G confirms that,” said Spradling. “Whether it’s Federal Syntech handgun ammo, Federal Gold Medal Grand shotshells or any of the Federal rifle loads, you can count on our ammo to help you perform your best under pressure.”
Federal ammunition can be found at dealers nationwide or purchased online direct from Federal. For more information on all products from Federal or to shop online, visit

Featuring high-definition, extra-low dispersion fluoride glass with Meopta’s proprietary MeoBright lens coatings, the Air delivers maximum resolution and contrast with bright images and vivid colors throughout the entire field of view.  This exceptional low-light performance – a hallmark of all Meopta optics – allows hunters to see fine detail more clearly at dawn and dusk when it matters most.  Meopta’s MeoShield anti-abrasion lens coating offers added protection to exterior lenses in the field, and the MeoDrop hydrophobic lens coating easily repels rain, dust, and grease from exposed lens surfaces.  The body is made from lightweight magnesium-alloy and protected by durable rubber armoring that provides a secure, non-slip grip.  

“The Air takes the MeoPro line to the next level of performance,” said Pavel Stastny, Senior Director of Sales and Marketing at Meopta. “It has a new, modern look and feel.  The open-bridge design is extremely comfortable and easy to hold for prolonged periods while glassing, and the optical performance is simply unparalleled at this price point.”

The diopter adjustment is integrated into the top end of the focus knob.  Twist-up eyecups are easily removed for cleaning and designed for use with or without eyeglasses.  Both models are tripod adapter ready, nitrogen purged, and fully sealed for fogproof and waterproof performance in the most demanding conditions.  Like all Meopta optics sold in the United States, they are backed by Meopta’s Lifetime Transferrable Warranty.

Rafael marks 10 years since Iron Dome’s first combat interception

Iron Dome launch_Iron_Dome_interception

Rafael’s President and CEO: Iron Dome’s current capabilities are light years beyond its original design

April 7th, 2021, Tel Aviv, Israel – With over 2,500 combat interceptions, at a success rate of 90%, and numerous lives saved, today marks the 10th anniversary of the first combat interception of Rafael’s Iron Dome Air Defense System.

Iron Dome’s development began in December 2007, and was completed in less than 3 years.

Within less than a month after being deployed in Israel, on the evening of April 7, 2011, the system was challenged in combat for the first time. A rocket that was launched from the Gaza Strip was detected by Iron Dome’s radar. Within seconds, the data transmitted to the BMC (Battle Management Center) was processed, and the battery operators needed to decide whether to activate an interceptor against the threat. With precise impact location provided by the BMC, pointing to the southern Israeli city of Ashkelon, with a population of more than 130,000 civilians, the crew decided to launch an interceptor, and made combat history by intercepting the threat, preventing civilian injuries and significant damage to property.

Iron Dome’s first massive and dramatic performance took place during operation Pillar of Defense in 2012, when it intercepted over 500 different threats fired from the Gaza Strip onto different parts of Israel, including heavy rocket barrages.

Iron Dome had become a game-changer, earning it the Israel Security Award in 2012.

Iron Dome has played an instrumental role in every conflict since then, by stopping thousands of rockets from hitting Israel, spanning small to large mortars and rockets with varying ranges and warheads.

Iron Dome serves as highly mobile, dual mission systems, designed to defeat Very Short Range (VSHORAD), as well as rocket, artillery and mortar (C-RAM) threats, aircraft, helicopters, UAVs, PGMs, and cruise missiles.

Iron Dome provides robust, yet selective defense. Its ability to discriminate between threats headed towards a populated area and those that will fall into the sea or open fields, reduces costs, and limits unnecessary interceptor launches. A single battery can protect a medium-sized city.

Iron Dome’s development has continued throughout the years, and its capabilities today include wider coverage, providing protection against a broader spectrum of threats, the ability to handle simultaneous threats, very high-volume salvos, and much more.

In August 2019, Israel’s Ministry of Defense and the US Defense Department signed an agreement for the purchase of two Iron Dome batteries for the US Army. Both batteries have now been delivered to the US.

In May 2020, Rafael and Raytheon Technologies Corporation signed a joint venture agreement to produce Iron Dome interceptors and launchers in an all-up-round facility in the US. The partnership is called Raytheon Rafael Area Protection Systems (R2S).

Rafael has developed additional variants of the Iron Dome system, to form a family that consists of the naval variant C-Dome, providing protection of strategic naval and land assets against advanced ballistic, aerial and surface-to surface threats, including saturated attacks. C-Dome is operational with the Israeli Navy. Iron Dome is also offered as an integrated, all-in-one air defense (I-Dome) system for maneuvering tactical forces in the field on a single vehicle.

Rafael’s President and CEO, Maj. Gen. (Ret.) Yoav Har-Even: “Iron Dome is a household name in Israel, and has become synonymous with excellence. We are proud of our teams of scientists and engineers who developed this extraordinary system and are continuing to do so on a daily basis. Thanks to them, Iron Dome’s capabilities are light years beyond its original design. We have seen it turn from a blueprint into a true game-changer, saving lives, preventing escalation, enabling military and political decision-makers to make calm and collected decisions. It has allowed Israel to carry on its daily routine, even while being targeted by an indiscriminate enemy. We are thankful to our teams, to the Israeli Ministry of Defense and to the IDF, to our partner industries ELTA, our subsidiary mPrest and others. We are especially thankful to current and past American administrations for their support in the manufacturing of the system.”

Tactical Medical Solutions (TacMed) Introduces Industry-Leading OLAES Hemostatic Bandage

Tactical Medical Solutions® (TacMed) Introduces Industry-Leading OLAES® Hemostatic Bandage

The next generation of the world’s most versatile trauma bandage now with built-in hemostatic gauze

Anderson, S.C. (April 6, 2021)Tactical Medical Solutions, LLC (TacMed) is excited to release an innovative addition to one of our core products: the OLAES® Hemostatic Bandage. This industry-first offering combines the globally recognized OLAES® Modular Bandage with the battle-tested HemCon® ChitoGauze® PRO, creating the most comprehensive trauma bandage on the market.

The OLAES® Modular Bandage is one of the most successful and utilized products from TacMed’s medical offerings. It has been a company mainstay for over 10 years, originating directly from experiences on the battlefield behind our flagship product, the SOF® Tourniquet. TacMed has partnered with Tricol Biomedical to incorporate the ChitoGauze® PRO into the bandage, one of few recommended hemostatic dressings by the Committee on Tactical Combat Casualty Care (CoTCCC). Combining two proven lifesaving products into a single package greatly expedites a prehospital care provider’s ability to render aid to a victim, saving time at the point-of-injury and giving the victim the best chance of survival.

The OLAES® Hemostatic Bandage is the only system on the market to combine the features of a trauma bandage with the technology of a hemostatic agent, and ChitoGauze® PRO is the only hemostatic agent on the market to offer antibacterial properties. Both truly hemostatic in effect and modular in flexibility, the new set up provides the ability to treat multiple injury profiles all from one package. The OLAES® Hemostatic is proudly manufactured here in the USA.

The OLAES® Modular Bandage is a highly-valued medical product by first responders domestically and internationally, and with the addition of a hemostatic capability in the same compact package, these responders will be able to work even more effectively when every second counts. We are excited to offer our customers this truly unique capability.

About Tactical Medical Solutions®::

TTactical Medical Solutions® is a global leading developer and manufacturer of pre-hospital medical gear for the tactical and civilian world. Founded in 2003 by a Special Forces medic who created the SOF® Tactical Tourniquet, our tourniquet is approved by the Department of Defense and was selected as the tourniquet of choice for the American Red Cross. While our original purpose was supporting the military, environments changed and TacMed progressed into servicing law enforcement, fire, EMS, rescue, and now even civilians.

Nexbelt “The Gun Belt with No Holes” introduces new EDC Belts for 2021

Nexbelt “The Gun Belt with No Holes” introduces new EDC Belts for 2021

(RANCHO CUCAMONGA, CA) – Nexbelt, “The Gun Belt With No Holes”, introduced their new Craniums, Guardian and Spartan ratchet-style EDC Gun Belts for 2021 today.   EDC Craniums Belt Introducing the new EDC Craniums Gun Belt. Some think it’s a little macabre. Others think it’s sinisterly cool. Each buckle is laser etched with an array of detailed skulls and is paired with our new Black Camo nylon strap. Belts this cool are usually relegated for fashion but this one is designed to hold your gun, magazine and whatever else you need to make it through the day! This PreciseFit™ ratchet belt fits up to a 50″ waist and the nylon reinforced strap is 1 1/2″ wide.   EDC Guardian Spartan Belt (Black or Coyote) The buckles of the Spartan Guardian Belts feature a scratch resistant powder coated finish and are laser etched with our version of the Spartan logo, with double guns forming the eyes and nose, and a USA Flag pattern. The nylon strap is available in either Black or Coyote. This PreciseFit™ ratchet belt fits up to a 50″ waist and the nylon reinforced strap is 1 1/2″ wide.   EDC Guardian Belt (Black Camo or OD Green) People still love the look of our original EDC rectangular buckles, so we developed a line that caters to their taste. The buckles feature a scratch resistant powder coated finish. The nylon straps on these belts are the same as the ones used on our Supreme Belt but we added two new color variations – Black Camo and OD Green. This PreciseFit™ ratchet belt fits up to a 50″ waist and the nylon reinforced strap is 1 1/2″ wide.   All these NEW EDC Gun Belts for 2021 can be purchased online at:   Nexbelt’s EDC Gun Belts will secure your defensive tools and look good while doing it. Whether you are dressed to impress, training on the range, competing, or just running errands Nexbelt has you covered. All the EDC Gun Belts have a stiffener in the strap to prevent belt sag or rollover when carrying your firearm and the buckles feature two set screws for added security to hold the strap after you trim it to fit your waist.   Nexbelt’s “Gun Belt With No Holes” features a unique ratcheting system called PreciseFit that allows the wearer to adjust his or her belt in ¼ inch increments instead of the normal 1-inch adjustment that a traditional belt with a pin/buckle system allows. This ability to “fine-tune” a belt in ¼ inch increments not only provides unprecedented comfort but is especially important for those practicing open or concealed carry. Having just the right amount of tension to safely secure your firearm is critical, and the ability to quickly switch from an IWB (inside the waistband) holster to an OWB (outside the waistband) holster is something that no other gun belt offers. This belt is great for light duty tactical or every day carry and is much more comfortable than a normal rigger belt.   Nexbelt®, PreciseFitTM and “The Belt With No Holes”® are registered trademarks.

New for 2021: Barnett’s HyperTac™ 420

Barnett’s New HyperTac™ 420 Proves Good Things Really Do Come in Small Packages (and in this case, price-tags)

Grand Prairie, TX (April 5, 2021) The new Barnett® HyperTac™ 420 packs premium features, performance-driven innovation and industry-leading technology into a small, hunter-friendly package. With a precision-engineered, tactical-style design and ultra-compact riser, the HyperTac™ 420 is a compact and highly maneuverable powerhouse. 

Barnett’s commitment to innovation, performance and safety is on full display in this lightweight contender. Best of all, the Barnett HyperTac 420 offers hunters superior quality, dependability and value!
Weighing in at 7.9 lbs., the HyperTac 420 features an extremely narrow riser, reducing the axle-to-axle length to just a hair over nine inches when cocked. It’s the perfect companion for whitetail hunting applications where stealth is required. From treestands to ground blinds, this hard-hitting crossbow is easily portable and unbelievably maneuverable in tight quarters. Its parallel limb configuration also puts less weight at the front of the crossbow, making for a more stable shooting platform with reduced recoil and vibration. 

With its compact and energy-efficient design, the HyperTac 420 slings small-diameter HyperFlite™ arrows downrange with incredible speed – up to 420 feet per second and delivers bone-crushing 149 ft. lbs. of kinetic energy! 
Like all crossbows in the Hyper™ series, the HyperTac 420 is paired with Barnett’s exclusive and patent-pending 22-inch, .204 diameter HyperFlite arrows. The arrow’s 21% increased FOC (front of center) and 61% greater ballistic coefficient reduces wind drift which makes for a deadly combination of blistering speed, down-range accuracy and deeper penetration. Built with a straightness tolerance of +/- .001 inch, HyperFlite arrows provide more than 25% deeper penetration on impact than the competition. The new capture nock increases string-to-nock engagement by 30% resulting in better accuracy while reducing string wear and eliminating dry fires. Arrows are held secure with Barnett’s Soft Lok™ Floating Bristle Arrow Retainer System and CNC machined aluminum flight track provides consistency shot after shot.
The HyperTac 420 also features a metal-injected molded trigger and TriggerTech™ Frictionless Release Technology (a $200 value). The TriggerTech trigger provides a reliable, crisp, 3-pound pull for consistent shots and improved accuracy. This is yet another example of how Barnett leads the industry in innovation and value. An Anti-Dry Fire (ADF) system and nock sensor are added to ensure the crossbow is loaded correctly. 
A customized fit and innovative features complete the HyperTac 420 shooting experience. Hunter-friendly ergonomics are enhanced by multiple features like the flip-down Verti-Grip™ multi-position, pistol-grip and finger safety reminders above the pass-through foregrip. A tactical-style adjustable buttstock and a padded cheek-rest ensure a perfect length-of-pull and proper scope-to-eye alignment. Pre-installed string suppressors provide reduced recoil, vibration and noise during the shot. 
The crossbow comes outfitted with a premium 1.5-5x32mm red/green illuminated, speed-compensating scope. The scope offers precise target acquisition in a full range of ambient light conditions from twilight to high noon. The scope is adjustable so that the crosshairs on the scope can be calibrated to exact yardages based on arrow speed. 
The full package includes a premium, side-mount quiver, three 22-inch HyperFlite arrows with field points, 1.5-5x32mm illuminated, speed-compensating scope, rope cocking device and lube wax. Best of all, the HyperTac 420 ready-to-hunt straight out of the box, only needing a single nose bolt to fully assemble. It is also available with a pre-installed crank cocking device. 
The new HyperTac 420 provides the smoothest, fastest, easiest shooting experience around.
HyperTac™ 420 Features:

  • HyperFlite™ .204 mall-diameter Arrow Technology
  • TriggerTech™ Frictionless Release Technology – a $200 value

GALLS Launches Three New Programs to Enhance the Customer Experience

GALLS® Launches Three New Programs to Enhance the Customer Experience

GALLS® new Preferred Supplier Program, information technology initiatives, and a new impetus for agencies to improve their purchasing programs are all part of CEO Mike Fadden’s pursuit of customer focus.

GALLS CEO, Mike Fadden, during his second edition of the GALLS email newsletter, Chief to Chief.

Lexington, Ken. (April 2021) – GALLS, LLC®, the leading distributor of uniforms and equipment to public safety agencies, and private label products, announce three new programs focused on improving and enhancing the customer experience through streamlined IT processes, a new Preferred Supplier Program, and an initiative to demonstrate how GALLS can help agencies maximize their existing budgets.

In the March edition of GALLS’s Chief to Chief email newsletter, CEO Mike Fadden announced the new programs aimed at “relentlessly focusing on the customer and blowing them away with service recovery.”

First on the program list was the completion of five IT projects that reversed years-long internal cost-cutting measures that benefited only the company and not the customer. Fadden explained the new IT measures for 2021 focused on providing customers with simplified billing, shorter lead times, and greater accuracy in the entire purchasing process.

“The Preferred Supplier Partner Program is designed to significantly improve the customer experience,” Fadden said regarding the new program that includes companies like Flying Cross, 5.11, Point Blank, Under Armour®, Streamlight®, and Bates®. “In this budget environment, GALLS is working with all of its Preferred Suppliers to keep price increases at a minimum whenever possible and to provide customers deeper inventory, reduce backorders, and speed up deliveries.”

The final new GALLS customer-focused initiative is designed to help agencies maximize their already strained budgets. Fadden asks that if any agency would like to find ways to better their existing programs, to personally contact him. He will send a GALLS representative to the agency to review the available budget and find ways to take costs out of the program, to provide the agency with more cash flow to purchase much-needed equipment, such as body armor or riot gear. Interested agencies can contact Mike Fadden at to set up an agency review.

“As the son, grandson, and nephew of retired police officers, I will be relentless in improving our customer service, whether you are an existing customer, a new customer, or a customer that left GALLS because of a bad experience. This is a new GALLS, and our customers are our number one priority,” Fadden added.

Agencies can contact GALLS for more information on GALLS programs here. Visit the website for more information at
