From Spreadsheets & Meetings to Loading Ammo: the Steinel Ammunition Story

A story of how the contagious shooting bug infected an accountant, taking him on the business ride of his life, only to discover his passion is his mission.

Steinel Ammo president

For Andy Steinel, a midwest-born and bred boy, life was on a common path. With a BA in Accounting and an MBA in Business Administration tucked under his arm, Andy started a career he had been working toward for years. He soon added a CPA to pad his resume even further. Success is never easy, but for someone with slightly obsessive tendencies, coupled with a perfectionist’s drive, Andy was soon climbing the old corporate ladder from auditor to accounting manager to controller. Yes, professional life was good for Andy, but it was also a bit repetitive at times, and frankly, boring.

What started as an exercise in generating some excitement between all those data-filled days, started to infiltrate his daily routine. Andy had stepped into the world of firearms and discovered the thrill his past-times were missing. But like any new hobby, gearing up can be expensive, so Andy could be found patrolling the hallways of local gun shows. Having fully admitted to his guns and ammo addiction, he started to load his own ammunition for cost-saving measures. This new opportunity also gave him the chance to play mad scientist and develop the best possible loads for his rifles and revolvers (physics was by far his favorite subject in high school).

His obsession took over his nights after work and his weekends. Andy researched, tested, developed, and once completed to his satisfaction, started to develop loads for new calibers that were hard to find or overly expensive, to begin with. But all those years of accounting were not wasted: he ran numerous versions of costing models on various calibers to determine if there was even a possibility that he could market select calibers to his fellow enthusiasts.

With the same drive that initiated his success in the financial world, Andy leapt into the ammunition business- securing a business license, FFL, and insurance in order to spend his weekends at local gun shows. Initially, though, Andy sold the most common calibers at bargain prices in order to introduce a large number of customers to the new Brand.

As start-ups go, Andy’s new company, XCaliber Ammunition, began unremarkably. “The first year was trying. I didn’t have a clue as to how big the market was for any of the specialty calibers I wanted to eventually offer. I couldn’t possibly leave my job to dedicate myself to a full-time startup business. As a result, I made the product in my basement at night and on weekends- when there wasn’t a local gun show. My wife was a saint for putting up with the operation, particularly once it grew, and right up until it was time to move into a facility.”

Within a year, Andy had developed a better market understanding and not only had customers but many repeat customers. Soon, his customers were requesting particular calibers, most often bigger or hard-to-find calibers. The gun show route gave Andy an opportunity to identify perceived opportunities within the market and this lead to his first big break. A show in Canton, Ohio wouldn’t even be able to pay for his table, but a contact, intrigued with his new 458 SOCOM load would eventually become his first major distributor of XCaliber’s 458 SOCOM, and, in addition, provide Andy with more invaluable contacts within the larger corporate ammunition world. Andy’s theory that a certain portfolio of MILSurp, big bore, and hard-to-find calibers could drive profitable growth over the long term was becoming a reality.

As XCaliber Ammunition began setting up tables at larger, out-of-state gun shows, Andy ran into a problem: although, he thought his company name unique enough within the firearms industry, so, apparently, did other ammo loaders and other small businesses. After a customer confused his product with another brand, Andy realized that in order to keep growing his brand, now was the time to make a significant and daring change.

By February of 2018, XCaliber had fostered a loyal customer base of over 1,000 customers looking specifically for his hard-to-find, big bore, and MILSurp ammo. The XCaliber website had begun to show signs of wear, lacking a professional online store and an engaging presence to entice new customers to try their premium ammunition. With the double incentive of addressing the brand confusion and an outdated website, Andy and his team moved to change the company name and present a brand new face to a growing public eager for specialty ammo. They worked with Garrison Everest, a marketing company, to simultaneously develop a new website and introduce the new Brand name of Steinel Ammunition Company. Andy summed up the transition, “it went as well as can be expected. We maintained URL redirects and have kept the old logo on the site alongside the new one. We also include a small mailer in our shipments explaining the name change. Occasionally, we’ll still have to explain the change, but have received nothing but positive comments.”

A critical element in any business plan is to identify your key differentiators within the market. Andy started down the path of unique calibers and Steinel continues to produce new “old” rounds for vintage firearms owners longing to take dad’s or granddad’s old rifle or revolver out to the range. Being receptive to their customer base is what keeps the Steinel team forging ahead. Social media, such as their Instagram and Facebook pages, have proved invaluable when it comes to understanding what their customers are looking for. Besides using social media as a marketing tool, Steinel’s relationship with some of their larger gun shops also provides invaluable feedback. “GunTubers” have also provided Steinel with inspiration for calibers that have gone under the radar for too long.

Forgotten Weapons and the American Heroes Channel are two great resources for gathering information on potential new calibers,” Andy added. “The former is great for learning about the detailed history of weapons and calibers and the latter is great for seeing the guns in action and learning about their performance, warts and all!”

Depending upon the caliber, it can take several months to go from concept through testing to a new round ready for the market. Once a decision is made, Steinel Ammo needs to secure a test gun or two, develop the load and even send out samples to some of their Instagram MILSurp contacts.

Not all new calibers come through the customer request pipeline. A couple of recent examples demonstrate how flexible Steinel Ammunition can be. Steinel Ammunition partnered with Big Horn Armory, a big-bore firearms manufacturer, to produce their 500 Auto Max for their AR500 platform. Working with Steinel Ammunition on a new caliber kept the cost of high-quality ammo for a  new caliber reasonable. “The benefit for Big Horn Armory is that they can offer what is arguably the greatest short-range rifle on the market, knowing that their customers can source reliable, high-performance, reasonably-priced ammunition,” Andy said.

Another example of partnering with Steinel Ammo is their ability to provide other ammo manufacturers or firearms manufacturers with OEM capabilities. “We are a flexible outfit and can equip our presses with virtually any caliber, particularly those which might not have enough volume to justify a larger company’s regular attention or tooling costs. The arrangements which seem to offer the most value to our larger manufacturing customers are those which leverage their economies of scale: they purchase the components and have them sent directly to our facility for loading.”

Steinel’s success in a crowded field of ammunition producers is due in part to a hold-fast mission to produce only the highest quality ammunition that is consistent, shot after shot, and keeping prices affordable. Steinel also responds quickly to current ammunition trends. “We are seeing continued growth in popularity of straight-walled cartridges such as 45/70as a result of select state hunting laws. More and more customers are realizing that it can be loaded to shoulder-kissing pressures and still take whitetail with ease,” Andy commented. “Or it can be loaded with our monolith, solid brass bullets for incredible penetrating capabilities, without breaking the bank. I mean, who doesn’t enjoy shooting a torpedo from a lever-action gun? In a world of smartphones and selfies, some things never change. That being said, the 450 Bushmaster is also a great option for fans of the AR 15.”

Another growing interest is in their solid copper hollow points (SCHP). These rounds are lead-free but perform unlike anything for hunting and self-defense. The SCHP rounds don’t fragment, explode or vaporize; they just work, by penetrating and expanding just as they should – mission accomplished. Steinel Ammo has been using the Maker SCHP and Andy says he is impressed with every test- both in the field and in ballistic gelatin.

Looking ahead to 2020, Andy Steinel and the Steinel Ammunition team are already gearing up for some potential new calibers, including a 300 Blackout using a Maker subsonic SCHP and potentially a 7.5 French, 30-40 Krag, and 9mm Largo, to name a few. With his company increasing production capabilities and researching new rounds to market, it’s a wonder that Andy ever gets out to enjoy some recreational shooting on his own.

AMAZON PETITIONS FAA TO OPERATE UAVs UNDER PART 135 TO DELIVER YOUR PURCHASE

Image result for Amazon MK27 Model UAS

Amazon1 respectfully submits this petition for exemption to facilitate the operations of our Prime Air delivery service using unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) in the United States. Specifically, Amazon seeks an exemption: (1) pursuant to 49 U.S.C. § 44807 to fulfill the requirements in 14 C.F.R. § 135.25 that a civil aircraft operated in air commerce have an airworthiness certificate (Section 44807 Exemption); and (2) from various provisions of 14 C.F.R. Parts 61, 91, and 135 to permit operations under a Part 135 air carrier operating certificate (Part 135 AOC) to be conducted using UAS (Operating Exemption).2

III. Amazon MK27 Model UAS The MK27 is an Amazon-designed fixed-wing aircraft capable of VTOL and wing-borne flight. Amazon formally entered aircraft type certificate program status for the MK27 in 2017 and has been engaged on a weekly basis with the FAA on that effort since its initial filing. The MK27 is able to carry internal payloads of up to five pounds,8 with a round-trip range of up to 15 nautical miles. The MK27’s general specifications and performance characteristics, as well as its subsystems, are described below. Additional details are available in the AFM. 1.2m 8 The maximum payload is calculated based on the MK27’s planned performance envelope.

Image result for Amazon MK27 Model UAS

A. General Specifications & Performance Characteristics

  • UA Type VTOL hybrid
  • Dimensions – Motor to Motor (VTOL) 1.2 m. (between motor pylons)
  • Dimensions – Wing-Span 2.15 m.
  • Max gross takeoff weight 88 lbs. (including payload)
  • Max payload weight at planned range 5 lbs.
  • Nominal cruise speed 60 kts. IAS
  • Max planned operating altitude 400 ft. AGL
  • Max operating altitude 1,200 ft. AGL
  • Planned Range 15 NM. round trip (with reserve)
  • Temperature -10 to 40 degrees C

B. Subsystems

  • Airframe Structure Combination of carbon fiber composite materials and metal
  • Engine (Propulsive Unit) Electric motors, brushless DC, with electronic controllers
  • Fuel Not applicable
  • Batteries Lithium rechargeable batteries
  • Avionics Distributed modular avionics
  • Communications Dual cellular connectivity; redundant
  • Navigation INS/GNSS navigation system
  • Perception/Environment
  • Sensing Systems
  • Use of onboard sensors for obstacle detection during transit and delivery
    phases of flight

This is an interesting proposal in that Part 107 currently has the air space at or below 400 AGL. Amazon has a total of 4 aircraft designs that have been approved by the FAA as Experimental Aircraft, so this should be interesting, and will the Remote Pilot in Command Certification under Part 107 remain the commercial application requirement or will the FAA impose additional pilot certification.

Introducing the SURVIVOR FILTER Squeeze Kit

 

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

 

Survivor%20Filter%20Squeeze%20KitTORONTO – August 16, 2019 – SURVIVOR FILTER is proud to introduce the SURVIVOR FILTER Squeeze Kit™. The ultra-compact water filter straw comes with two collapsible canteens making this the ideal travel filter. The SURVIVOR FILTER Squeeze Kit cleans water down to a filtration level of 0.05 microns.

“The Squeeze Kit is big step forward for filter straws,” said SURVIVOR FILTER Owner Mark Zakaib. “The compact design allows The Squeeze Kit to fit in any pack or travel bag, yet this is more than just a straw. The two collapsible canteens allow for easy storage of clean water.”

The aptly named SURVIVOR FILTER Squeeze Kit is a truly flexible filter. The Squeeze Kit can function as a filter straw, but it also works with both gravity and applied pressure and can filter up to 13.5 ounces of water per minute.

The BPA free filter weighs less than four ounces and easily fits in your glove box, tackle box, knapsack or bug-out-bag. The included canteens can be paired so that one holds pre-filtered water and the other collects the clean water. An integrated cap keeps the mouthpiece clean, allowing it to function as a straw, too.

The Squeeze Kit uses a three-stage filtration process. Water passes through a layer of cotton, then a 0.05 Micron UF membrane filter and finally a carbon filter. Inside this incredibly compact housing, the three filters combine to block 99.999% of Protozoa. Cryptosporidium, Giardia and other parasites are also captured. Independent testing documents the removal of 99.999% of tested virus strains, staph, and bacteria. The Squeeze Kit also strips 99.5% of mercury and 93% of lead.

THE SURVIVOR FILTER Squeeze Kit is available online.

Paul Levy Introduces New Products from Brownells

Paul Levy, leader of the Brownells new product posse, has sticky fingers… No wait, he has the Armageddon Gear Sticky Skid Pad. It has a non-slip rubberized surface, and when you stick the other side to whatever you don’t want to slip – forearm of your long-range rifle? – that thing ain’t movin’!

Short Action Precision’s SAP Positional Rifle Sling is great for hunters and PRS competitors. It’s a proper SHOOTING sling that gives you excellent support, yet releases quickly when you need to dismount the rifle and move.

SAP’s Two Round Holder attaches to your rifle and keeps a pair of backup rounds ready at hand, in case a wounded rhino charges you (or for less dramatic situations).

The Timney trigger module for the Ruger Precision® Rimfire Rifle delivers a smooth, user-adjustable pull of 8 oz. to 16 oz. Niiiice! The folks at Volquartsen also know a thing or two about rimfires… Their new Hammer & Sear Kit will give your Ruger® Mark IV™ 22/45 pistol a crisp, 2.25 lb. trigger. From The Secret Weapon, aka TSW, comes a Folding Picatinny Monopod that’ll attach to the underside of any buttstock with a MIL-STD 1913 rail. Sturdy all-metal construction AND the extended height is adjustable.

The Enhanced AR-15 Carbine Buffer Tube from Strike Industries has a vent hole at the rear to maintain correct internal pressure for reliable buffer function. The octagonal exterior lets dust, dirt, and sand fall away so they won’t impede the adjustable stock. Strike’s Latchless AR-15 Charging Handle is super-simple to use: grab the ears, pull back. No worries about releasing the latch because there isn’t one!

Finally, the SB Tactical SBA4 Brace for AR-15 pistols is 5-position length adjustable, styled similarly to the standard M4 carbine stock, and yes, the buffer tube IS included.

Secretary Bernhardt Transforms Interior’s Ethics Program

U.S. Department of the Interior News Release

Date: August 14, 2019
Contact:
Interior_Press@ios.doi.gov

Signs Secretary Order Overhauling Ethics Office, More than Doubles Career Ethics Staff

Washington – Today, U.S. Secretary of the Interior David Bernhardt continues to follow through on his commitment to transform the Department of the Interior’s (Department) ethics program, signing Secretary’s Order 3375. The Order doubles the number of career ethics officials hired at the Department since 2017 and restructures the ethics program by unifying 13 disparate Bureau programs into a centrally-managed office.  The Order streamlines the reporting structure for ethics personnel, establishes the Departmental Ethics Office, and clarifies roles and responsibilities for the Department’s employees.

“Being a public servant is one of the highest callings a person can undertake, and with this responsibility comes the public’s trust in all of our actions being ethical.  Investigations performed by the Department’s Inspector General over the years have highlighted a culture at the Department of the Interior that did not embrace necessary ethical standards, which erodes the public’s faith in our work,” said Secretary Bernhardt.  “Transforming the workplace culture at the Department is a top priority for me, and my actions today will help ensure the Department has a functional and resilient ethics program that facilitates our ability to fully embrace a culture of ethical compliance.”

Scott de la Vega, a career official who serves as the Director of the Departmental Ethics Office and Designated Agency Ethics Official (DAEO), will oversee ethics operations for the Department.  Unifying the ethics programs will ensure the DAEO has overall responsibility and authority for the Department’s ethics program, including the ethics activities of the Bureaus and Offices.  This will provide accountability and consistency across all components of the Department.

“This unprecedented expansion and restructuring of the Department’s ethics program is not only necessary, but decades overdue,” said de la Vega.  “The transformation of this critical program into a modern, legally dependable and responsive operation will assist our 70,000 employees in faithfully discharging the duties of their offices with integrity and in compliance with conflict of interest laws and the highest ethical standards.”

Under the program’s prior structure, the heads of each of the Department’s Bureaus and Offices, rather than the DAEO, operated 13 disparate ethics programs with varying staffing and operational standards. At times, some programs operated without any ethics officials in place at all.   The new structure will enhance the delivery of ethics services to employees; ensure that program operations are legally sufficient and compliant with ethics laws and regulations; and implement best practices.

“This order represents an ongoing commitment on the part of the Interior Secretary to reorganize and streamline the department,” said Representative Rob Bishop. “The efficiency, transparency, and consistency promised by this action are the traits of an exemplary operation. I anticipate a successful rollout and hope it can serve as a blueprint for other departments as they look to improve their own practices.”

“Secretary Bernhardt has significantly increased accountability within the Departmental Ethics Office. Today’s Order builds on that progress by streamlining operations and consolidating bureaucracy. This new format will increase transparency and efficiency at Interior, a welcome change from the previous administration,” said Congressional Western Caucus Chairman Paul A. Gosar.

Secretary Bernhardt has taken several important actions to improve the ethics program, including recruiting experienced, non-partisan, career ethics professionals with the dedication and leadership skills necessary to establish a best-in-class program.  These new employees include the DAEO, Alternate DAEO, Financial Disclosure Supervisor, Ethics Education and Training Supervisor, and Deputy Ethics Counselors at the National Park Service, Bureau of Land Management, and other Bureaus and Offices.

“The operational changes, significant increase in ethics personnel, and added resources to the Department’s ethics program will undoubtedly be of benefit now and moving forward,”said Secretary Bernhardt.

Since 2017, the Department has increased the number of full-time, career ethics professionals by 162 percent, nearly doubling the total hired during the entire eight years of the previous administration.

The Order is accessible online at https://www.doi.gov/sites/doi.gov/files/uploads/so_3375.

ADDITIONAL BACKGROUND

Reforms Secretary Bernhardt has implemented to transform the Department’s ethics program include:

  • Recruiting and hiring a new DAEO and ADAEO
    • Within days of being sworn in August 2017, then-Deputy Secretary Bernhardt directed that the Department’s ethics programs be strengthened by recruiting experienced, non-partisan, career ethics professionals with the dedication and leadership skills necessary to build best-in-class ethics programs for the Department. 
    • In April 2018, then-Deputy Secretary Bernhardt hired a new DAEO and ADAEO with decades of experience at the highest levels of the Federal Government.
  • Recruiting and hiring a significant number of full-time, qualified ethics professionals
    • Secretary Bernhardt has overseen the hiring of 42 career ethics officials over the last 15 months alone.
  • Elevating the Departmental Ethics Office and DAEO
    • Secretary Bernhardt elevated the position of the DAEO within the Office of the Solicitor. The DAEO now reports directly to the Solicitor with full access to the Secretary of the Interior.
    • This allows the DAEO greater access to the most senior officials at the Department with the ability to raise critical and urgent issues more expediently and directly.  
    • This action also enhances the profile of the ethics program and sends the message to all Department employees, at all levels, that ethics is important and must be a top priority in all decision-making and operations.

Swagger Hunter29: The Ultimate Western Hunting Bipod

 

Most bipods or shooting sticks are heavy and cumbersome to operate, especially when the legs are at full extension. These are two characteristics that make your typical shooting implement less than well-suited for the strenuous expectations of Western and backcountry hunters.

It’s in that same Western environment that Swagger’s Hunter29 bipod really shines: it features an ultralight construction of just 23.6 ounces, can be deployed or retracted quickly and quietly, and is capable of handling the toughest terrain. Lockable dual springs offer various levels of stiffness and maneuverability to the platform, and they now feature a nitride finish to prevent corrosion even in the most unforgiving weather. The legs, which can be retracted into the housing when not in use, adjust with the twist of two ergonomically designed knobs.

Perfect for the demands of spot-and-stalk hunting, the Hunter29 bipod adjusts from 6¾ to 29 inches and is best used in prone, seated and kneeling positions. It’s ideally suited for rapid target acquisition with minimal movement or noise. The twin-spring design allows for an incredible range of motion from side to side or up and down steep terrain, giving hunters the ultimate tactical advantage in the field. Also, a standard rifle adapter allows you to attach the bipod to the forward sling swivel stud with total security.

When you’re dealing with rocky ground, two rubber feet keep the bipod from slipping. When the country changes to softer dirt and steep slopes, the rubber feet can be removed to reveal metal spikes that hold your bipod firmly in place, giving you the most stable shot possible. More durable and versatile than ever, Swagger’s Hunter29 bipod is a Western hunter’s best friend.

Features:

  • Adjustable lengths from 6¾ to 29 inches

  • Twist-adjustable legs

  • Removable rubber feet with metal spikes

  • Lightweight design

  • Reinforced bungees

  • New leg design and corrosion resistant springs

Made in the USA and equipped with numerous unique high performance features, we at Swagger are confident that our bipods will do for you what no bipod has ever done before. We back claim that with our Limited Lifetime Guarantee.

Swagger bipods are also covered by our Shoot With Confidence Guarantee. If your Swagger bipod does not give you more shooting flexibility and more shooting confidence, send the product back to us within 30 days of purchase, with proof of purchase from an authorized dealer, and we will buy it back.

Bond Arms® Best Seller: The Backup

Boasting the ultimate mix of firepower and concealability, this compact handgun makes the perfect backup firearm for professionals and the ideal carry-gun for CCW permit holders.

Granbury, TX (August 13, 2019) – As Bond Arms® custom-made quality handguns grew in popularity, they drew the attention of former law enforcement and former soldiers who loved the guns, but they wanted to see one basic change. At the time, most of Bond Arms’ models came in a polished stainless finish that was both attractive and durable. For these old pros, many wanted to see a model with less shine to improve its concealability and allow it to better blend in and not catch unwanted attention. Bond Arms responded to these requests, and the Backup™ was born, quickly becoming one of their best-selling models of all time.

The Bond Arms® Backup™ boasts the ultimate blend of compact concealability with threat-stopping firepower. Chambered for the powerful .45 ACP, the entire break-action handgun is only 4.5 inches long with 2.5-inch double barrels for a two-round capacity. All the parts that would normally be shiny on the Backup™ are bead blasted for a grayish, matte finish, while the frame features a dark crinkled powder coat finish.

The Backup™ is outfitted with Bond Arms newest rubber grips, providing a great handle on the firearm and making it comfortable to shoot. Additional features include the company’s patented rebounding hammer, retracting firing pins, a cross-bolt safety and a spring-loaded, cammed locking lever.

Like all Bond Arms® handguns, the barrels are interchangeable with a few simple turns of a single hex-head screw to create as many as 25 caliber combinations from 20 available barrels. The Backup™ frame can be used with barrels chambered as small as the .22 rimfire up to a .410 shotgun load.

“The ultra-compact size, attractive matte-finish and popularity of the .45 ACP chambering among those who carry concealed made the Backup™ a Bond Arms® best-seller right out of the gate,” says Gordon Bond.

Backup™ Features:

  • Bead-blasted steel double-barrel and frame
  • Powder-coated finish on the frame
  • Standard-sized, rubber grips
  • Front-blade, fixed-rear sights
  • Trigger guard
  • Compatible with all standard Bond Arms barrels
  • Patented rebounding hammer
  • Retracting firing pins
  • Cross-bolt safety
  • Spring-loaded, cammed locking lever
  • 19 ounces
  • Barrel length is 2.5 inches
  • Overall length is 4.5 inches
  • MSRP: $540.00

BOND ARMS, INC. is located in Granbury, Texas and manufactures the award-winning Bond Arms Derringer – the finest in double barrel protection. Originally organized under the name Texas Armory, the company became incorporated as Bond Arms in 1995 with the idea that the Remington Model 95 over-under, single-action derringer could be converted from an Old West anachronism into a modern & reliable handgun. The barrel and frame were redesigned to safely fire modern calibers & the entire handgun is constructed entirely from stainless steel. This makes for a pistol that’s both strong and durable.

NSSF Statement on El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, Communities

NSSF_BP_New_Logo_Black_and_White_Trademark

The National Shooting Sports Foundation® chose to remain respectful of the victims and their families in the El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, communities in the week following the senseless and horrific murders there. We did so because we believe it is right and proper. Both communities deserve time and space to mourn, to pray and to try to find comfort.

There is a time for healing. This was that time. While others chose to vilify and politicize the pain and tragedy brought by criminals who defy understanding, we chose not to participate.

We also know that now is another time. It is one that calls for leadership. NSSF is and has been ready, and we invite any who genuinely want to find real solutions for safer communities to come alongside us.

Unfortunately, we have been down this path before. Tragedy has struck our own community, and as it was then, we believe there is common ground. We’ve proven that with our leadership in getting our FixNICS® program signed into law in Congress and 16 states, increasing the disqualifying background checks from 1.7 million to 5.3 million since 2012, a 220-percent increase. It is the firearms industry that leads with Project ChildSafe®, passing out 38 million free gun locks. We’ve partnered with the largest suicide prevention group in the country to provide gun ranges and retailers the resources to intervene before a moment of crisis. We’ve led on preventing straw purchases with our Don’t Lie for the Other GuyTM campaign.

We do this because we are committed to ensuring guns remain out of the hands of those who shouldn’t possess them. Blaming guns for the senseless actions of criminals is counterproductive. We know the answers require much more.

This is hard work. It takes committed leadership. We’re not afraid of the challenge and invite any of those who genuinely want to work toward answers that will save lives and respect rights to join us.

We are the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the firearms industry trade association. We are committed to real solutions for safer communities.

Call the Commerce Department TODAY and Urge Immediate Publication of Final Export Control Reform Rules

NSSF- The Firearms Industry Trade Association

The Obama Administration’s Export Control Reform (ECR) Initiative transferred export licensing of all commercial products to Commerce from State except for our industry! This antigun policy that was designed to harm our industry still remains in effect today.

Over a year ago proposed rules to transfer export licensing of sporting and commercial firearm and ammunition to Commerce from State were published in the Federal Register. The final rules have been ready for publication since March. While the Trump Administration stalls and delays publication of the final rules, antigun politicians in the House passed legislation to block these crucial reforms that will strengthen national security, reduce unnecessary regulatory burdens and allow our industry to create more good paying jobs in America.
The Trump Administration needs to hear from you TODAY!  Tell the Trump Administration to immediately publish the final rules and end this Obama antigun policy before it’s too late.
Call the Commerce Department Bureau of Industry and Security at 202-482-1455 and urge them to act immediately and publish the final rules for the USML to CCL transition for sporting and commercial firearms and ammunition products.

RCBS Announces MatchMaster Competition Die Sets

 

OVERLAND PARK, Kansas – August 9, 2019 – RCBS, the leading manufacturer of ammunition reloading equipment for rifles and pistols, announces the new MatchMaster Competition Die Series.
RCBS MatchMaster Competition Dies are the perfect tool for precision handloaders who are looking to craft the most exacting rounds possible. Available in Full Length, Neck Sizing, and Seating configurations, MatchMaster Competition Dies are precision-machined for a lifetime of perfection.
MatchMaster Full Length Sizing Dies use RCBS’s precision-machined neck bushings to put the perfect amount of neck tension on each round. The titanium-nitride coated expander offers silky-smooth case extraction and reduced brass buildup on the expander.
“Both features help reduce the amount of stretch on the case neck,” explained RCBS Product Manager Will Hemeyer.
Also included in this exceptional set is the unique MatchMaster Competition Seating Die.
“What sets the MatchMaster Seating Die apart from the competition is a bullet-seating window with bullet-retaining system,” Hemeyer said. “Simply place the bullet in the window and raise the case into the die to seat the bullet. Couple this with a micrometer-adjustable, free-floating, self-centering bullet-seating stem and the MatchMaster Seating Die is easily the most accurate bullet seating die on the market.”
The MatchMaster Neck Sizing Die Set also uses RCBS’s precision-machined neck bushings to put the perfect amount of neck tension on each round while not changing the body dimensions of fired cases. Like its full-length brother, the MatchMaster Neck Sizing Die offers a titanium-nitride coated expander. The set also comes with a MatchMaster Competition Seating Die, with its unique bullet seating window and micrometer-adjustable, free-floating, self-centering bullet-seating stem.
Of course, the Seating Die is also available as a stand-alone. Reloaders will love that they can end smashed fingers and misaligned bullets with the specially-designed bullet window. Plus users can fine-tune any load with repeatable precision with the micrometer-adjustable, free-floating, self-centering bullet seating stem.
RCBS is the leading manufacturer of ammunition reloading equipment for rifles and pistols, offering reloading equipment throughout the world. To learn more about the new MatchMaster Competition Dies, visit

New Axeon Absolute Zero Eases Sighting In

 

FORT SMITH, Ark. (August 8, 2019) – The new and improved patented and proven Axeon® Absolute Zero® makes sighting in your rifle absolutely easy. Using two precision lasers it guarantees you hold your rifle in the exact same place while sighting in thereby providing the ability to completely eliminate hold error and establish a zero in just one shot.

The Absolute Zero from Axeon Optics includes a new mounting system making it the easiest, most efficient, and accurate way to find your zero at 25 yards giving you the ability to zero at 100 yards with cold barrel accuracy. It comes with an adapter that fits your rifle’s Picatinny or Weaver rail. It also comes equipped with a quick disconnect mount that allows the unit to mount onto any scope that has a 1-inch or 30 mm tube. Adhesive backed reflective grids are included with each Absolute Zero making the red lasers easy to identify and locate even in bright sunlit conditions.

Using the Hancosky Method the Absolute Zero utilizes twin lasers to aid you in precisely aligning your point of aim with your rifle’s point of impact. Once attached to your rifle and the locations of the two lasers are noted on the reflective grid a round is fired to establish a point of impact. With the lasers fixed on the original noted locations the point of aim of your rifle’s scope or dot sight is adjusted to correspond with the point of impact giving you an easy one-shot sight in.
The Axeon Absolute Zero makes sighting in your rifle scope, dot sight or reflex sight easy. Find your zero at 25 yards in just one shot. Based on your ballistic rise or drop at 100 yards, you can then calculate the adjustment for 100 yards and adjust your aiming device without firing another round.
The Absolute Zero saves you time, money, ammo, and your shoulder! It works across multiple platforms and calibers, eliminates cant and movement and is ideal hunters who depend on cold barrel accuracy! The Absolute Zero has an MSRP of $79.99.

He can be seen competing next at the 2019 EGW Area 8 Championship, to be held Aug. 22 – 25, 2019, at the Ontelaunee Rod and Gun Club in New Tripoli, Pennsylvania.

About Shell Shock Technologies NAS3 Cases:

NAS3 9mm cases are 50 percent lighter than brass cases, offer greater lubricity and will not abrade, clog, foul, wear-out or damage breach and ejector mechanisms. The cases offer greater corrosion resistance, tensile strength (2x stronger) and elasticity than brass. NAS3cases will not split, chip, crack or grow (stretch) and are fully reloadable (using S3 Reload dies) and can be reloaded many more times than brass cases. NAS3 cases have been tested successfully by customers to pressures over 70k psi. NAS3 cases can be picked up with a magnet. The head can be colored for branding purposes and easy load identification.

NAS3 is “Best in Class” for maintaining consistent velocity between rounds. In an independent test performed by H.P. White Laboratory (a major munitions testing facility), rounds fired using NAS3 cases achieved a velocity standard deviation of 0.093 FPS (124-grain FMJ bullet, 4.2 grains Titegroup powder, 10 rounds, extreme variation 3fps).

Pulsar’s New Firmware Update Greatly Increases Image Processing

(MANSFIELD, TEXAS) – Pulsar continues to improve its products by upgrading their firmware of image processing algorithms. After extensive research and testing, Pulsar has successfully implemented the support of the gain mode, increasing the ability to detect, recognize and identify objects in conditions of low-temperature differences. Pulsar has listened to its loyal customers; the new algorithms are implemented in its current line with the release of the latest software update.

Firmware updates are available for the Trail XQ/XP riflescopes, Helion XQ/XP monoculars and Accolade XQ/XP binoculars. The changes will be visible in the following observation modes:

Identification—Optimally depicts details when it is necessary to recognize or identify the objects and works well under difficult conditions: rain and fog (possibility of more image noise, which is normal for this mode.)

Forest—Optimal image in conditions of dense vegetation and low-temperature differences—relief, vegetation and hot objects are clearly more visible.

Rocks—Optimal display of warmer signatures in the presence of many objects with different temperatures (sunny day, mountains or city relief) in the field of view.

Interface changes will appear in order to facilitate faster switching between observation modes. A short press of the “Up” button will be used to quickly switch between modes and a long press will change color pallets (in Helion and Accolade.)

To get the software update downloaded to your device, use your smartphone or tablet to install the free “Stream Vision” application from Google Play or App Store.

Introducing HK Knives by Hogue

 

image

Henderson, NV – Heckler & Koch® Knives is thrilled to reveal the paracord wrapped Fray to fixed blade enthusiasts. Comprised of 154CM steel, the Fray is intended for strenu ous outdoor cutting activities. Lead engineer Brian Zelus elaborated, “Our goal was to create a useable, no-nonsense cutting tool. Knife ergonomics, along with a quality retention sheath, were the most deliberate engineering aspects of the Fray. Balancing appearance, function, and precision machining were critical to the design process. Perfection does not happen without extensive research and development.”

The Fray offers a lifetime of use with supreme comfort to boost cutting power and reduce fatigue. Both tanto and clip point styles come with thumb ramp jimping and an integral finger indent. The tail end of the grip also features added jimping for traction when used in an ice pick hold. A 1/8” thick paracord wrap weaves through tactically placed slots in the knife frame. Paracord can be used for lashing and has a multitude of survival uses varying from hunting to first aid. An auto retention sheath delivers graceful ambidextrous carry and release. Rapid deployment requires minimal thumb pressure and the knife easily snaps into place when not in use. To increase functionality, the sheath can be horizontally or vertically carried on waist belts and harnesses.
For those desiring additional security, the retention sheath is also Tek-Lok™ compatible.

America Wept at the Tragic Loss in El Paso, TX and Dayton, OH

Image result for letters of the alphabet numbered

It’s Friday and time for our weekly shoot the shit. If there was ever a need for a good shoot the shit it’s this week. As regular readers know, it’s the only thing that will keep you from running to a jackass who studied psychology so he or she could understand themselves.

The tragedies in Dayton and El Paso are the personification of derangement, and our hearts go out to the victims, their families and friends. Those who survived will be scared for life. The only good news came from Dayton, OH were some outstanding cops neutralized the threat and in the process prevented the gene pool from being contaminated. The El Paso police took the miscreant into custody, and undoubtedly, by now, they’ve surgically implanted a psychologist on him, in an effort to understand his motivation. I sat and as I watched police take the suspect into custody remember whishing the officer’s handgun would accidentally discharge hitting the suspect in the snot locker, but this is America and everyone is entitled to due process; Texas will end up supporting this genetic defect for 28 years while his attorneys appeal.

Even more disheartening was listening to Democrat politicians jump on the “assault weapon” bandwagon before the victims were laid to rest. These people actually started fundraising on the event! Other than BETO, who isn’t too stupid but closer to four stupid, the one politician that gets my boob prize was  Nan Whaley.

Now, Nan who is probably a great lady, splendid conversationalist, sews her own clothes, cooks and even cleans house comes out and says that the perpetrator didn’t kill the people; instead, she continues saying the assault weapon pulled the trigger. I’m sure she didn’t really mean to say that but it’s a pretty strong sign that she’s been sitting on the back of a Harley too long.

To satisfy my own curiosity I decided to look up crime stats for Dayton.

DAYTON CRIME DATA

screenshot 2019-08-07 14.24.24 (3)

screenshot 2019-08-07 14.24.42 (3)

Quite frankly, Mayor Whaley, residents of Dayton need assault rifles!

So, as usual, law abiding gun owners are once again subjected to a circus orchestrated by opportunistic politicians who’s sole interest is advancing an anti-gun agenda. These individuals actually wanted to legislate just hours after the two incidents. If you’re paying attention, you’ll realize that the focus is not on solving a complex problem but rather ban guns.

Mayor Whaley claims that the assault rifle pulled the trigger, while the media alleges that President Trump’s order to fly the flag at half-mast until 8/8 is a Nazi salute. The moron advancing that theory, NBC News and MSNBC contributor Frank Figliuzzi, former FBI assistant director for counterintelligence, speaking with anchor Brian Williams this week says:

“The president said that we will fly our flags at half mast until August 8th. That`s 8/8. Now, I`m not going to imply that he did this deliberately but I am using it as an example of the ignorance of the adversary that`s being demonstrated by the White House,” he began.

“The numbers eight eight are very significant in neo-Nazi and white supremacy movement,” he said. “Why? Because the letter H is the eighth letter of the alphabet, and to them the numbers 8/8 together stand for Hitler. So we`re going to be raising the flag back up at dusk on 8/8.”

I think the President should schedule a flag ceremony for 6,15 which can be decoded as F/O or fuck off, which is precisely what you as voters and donors should say to political avarices and their  allegations of racism, white supremacist and Nazi.

 Have a wonderful weekend and don’t let this crap get you down. These self-serving individuals want you to believe that Americans are living in fear – they’re not!
