VIRGINIA BEACH, Virginia – August 4, 2020 – Blackhawk, a leader in law enforcement and military equipment for over 20 years, announced today that it has added new Level 2 Duty (L2D) Light Bearing holsters compatible with the SIG SAUER P320 to the T-Series Red Dot Sight (RDS) Holster line. The new holsters were engineered specifically to accommodate red dot sights when mounted on SIG P320 pistols.

The new dual-injected molded holsters are available in left and right-hand configurations and feature a removable, rotating dust cover that protects the optic from impacts and debris. The T-Series RDS holsters can be used with the Trijicon RMR/SRO, Leupold Delta Point Pro, SIG Romeo1Pro, plus other similar sized optics. The SIG P320 pistol is kept secure in a durable polymer body that provides users with a sleek, ergonomic design without adding extra bulk to the holster.

INDRA TAKES ON A GREATER ROLE IN THE NEW AESA RADAR DESIGN FOR THE EUROFIGHTER, AMONG THE WORLD’S MOST SOPHISTICATED SYSTEMS

· The company, the Eurofighter’s second biggest avionics supplier, has consolidated its participation in developing the new version of the AESA electronic scanning radar

· It will be taking part in all system development phases, having design authority over several new modules, and taking over responsibility for certain critical functions.


Madrid, August 4, 2020.- Spain has selected Indra, a leading multinational technology and consulting company, as the national company to perform the development of the radar for the Eurofighter in consortium with the German company Hensoldt Sensors GmbH.

This program will deliver one of the world’s most sophisticated AESA electronic scanning radars and augment the operational capacity of Spanish and German Eurofighters. The program also has the long-term goal of consolidating national sovereignty over the radar’s development within the operation.

The company is taking on a key role alongside Hensoldt in all the system design phases, and is set to ramp up its industrial participation in its development.

Indra will be leading the development of key functionalities, taking advantage of its expertise in electronic warfare, operating modes and the capabilities of the new technology built into in the radar.

This know-how will strengthen its position as designer and supplier to airborne radar programs deployed in latest-generation aircraft.

The new E-Scan Common Radar System MK. 1 (ECRS MK1) will provide top-tier capabilities to the Eurofighters of the Spanish and German air forces.

The system will drastically improve the aircraft’s operating capacities and counter-defense systems. It will bolster air-to-air and air-to-surface identification and detection, increase its capacity to resist attacks attempting to interfere with its systems, by using countermeasures based on the latest-generation electronic defense techniques. The radar system will also possess electronic disturbance and listening capabilities.

Indra’s participation in the new program will encompass all life cycle phases, from the design and development subject to the current contract, to production and future operation, development and support.

The contract will allow Indra to create long-term highly-skilled jobs, in addition to reinforcing its technological expertise and role as a key supplier in the field of airborne sensors, as well as the leader of the Sensors technological pillar within the FCAS program.

The work Indra is doing in the ongoing development of this aircraft lends continuity to the role the company has been playing for decades as the second largest avionics supplier in the Eurofighter program.

In addition to the Captor radar and the Praetorian DASS, Indra is a key supplier of the Eurofighter in the development of its communications subsystems, flight and weapons control, navigation, engine and other utilities control, among other equipment. In the same vein, Indra solutions are part of the simulation and training systems, while in the operational phase, they are a benchmark for improving the availability of the platform.

About Indra

Indra (www.indracompany.com) is one of the leading global technology and consulting companies and the technology partner for key business operations for clients worldwide. It is a leading global provider of proprietary solutions in specific segments of the Transport and Defence markets, and a leading company in digital transformation consulting and Information Technology in Spain and Latin America through its subsidiary Minsait.

1,078 Coins in Three Days

Hundreds of Hammered Coins Discovered in UK Farm Field

European metal detector dealer and friends dig 1,078 silver coins in three days

Chicago, IL (August 3, 2020) – Luke Mahoney was walking slowly across a field in an undisclosed location of the UK last month, swinging his metal detector from side to side, when a clear Beep… Beep… Beep came through his earphones. After hundreds of hours listening to his machine “talk” to him, Mahoney knew this particular sound meant his coil had passed over a nice coin. He carefully eased his digging tool into the ground and brought the target to the surface. Mahoney had just unearthed a silver, hammered coin dating back to somewhere in the 15th to the 17th century.

Anyone who has ever owned a metal detector has dreamed of making such a discovery, but outstanding finds take more than luck. The first requirement is a good metal detector. Mahoney is fortunate in that respect. He is the owner of Joan Allen Metal Detectors, in existence since 1968 and one of the largest metal detector dealers in Europe. As such, he can pick from a wide variety of brands and models. For his personal hunting, Mahoney uses a Minelab Equinox 800, a machine he knows will do everything he needs to make great discoveries. 

In addition to luck and a highly capable metal detector, unearthing exciting and valuable finds requires productive hunting territory. Detecting in the United Kingdom and other parts of Europe helps in that regard. The continent has thousands of years of history, and untold numbers of coins, relics, and artifacts have been lost, buried and forgotten over these centuries. Just wandering around swinging a metal detector could bring that machine in contact with some of these treasures, but careful research can greatly increase one’s odds of being lucky. This is one way people like Luke Mahoney consistently uncover ancient sites to search. He has only been detecting for about 10 years, but has learned the proper way to do things.

Mahoney’s silver hammered coin was discovered near a site where his friend, Dan Hunt, had earlier found a remarkable, 2,000-year-old gold coin. “I just had a feeling the nearby farm owned by my friend was a good possibility for more discoveries,” says Mahoney, who continued covering the ground with his search coil after finding the first silver coin. His Equinox beeped again. And again. He began seeing more hammered coins on top of the soil.

Knowing he had just made an outstanding discovery, Mahoney called his friends, Matthew Brown and Dan Hunt, over to help. “I always enjoy hunting with friends. It makes things more exciting when you find something,” he shares. The duo immediately raced over to see what was happening, and Mahoney excitedly showed the men what he had found. 

The pace quickened as the men listened to their machines sound off. Some targets were shallow, while others were buried up to 18 inches in the soil. Even at this great depth, Mahoney’s Minelab Equinox 800 – equipped with Multi-IQ simultaneous multi-frequency technology – gave solid signals, clearly identifying the objects as coins.

The only unfortunate part about having a detector capable of reaching these depths is the digging involved to uncover the targets. Imagine pinpointing a target, then digging 12 to 18 inches down to find it. Then, digging again, and again, and again. Great care must be taken while digging so deeply, as hammered coins and other artifacts can be surprisingly brittle and break easily. You certainly don’t want to destroy a treasure by being careless. “I was still sore from the digging several days later,” Mahoney admits.

Minelab Equinox 800

Sometimes the coins were uncovered one at a time. Other times, a shovel full of dirt would bring up a handful of coins. The total kept mounting. Most of the targets were found in a concentrated area, but continued to be found in lesser numbers farther away. “It appears the coins were placed in pots and buried,” Mahoney speculates. “Then, a plow came through the field and spread them all over.”

Incredibly, the first day of digging brought over 1,000 silver, hammered coins to the light of day. The men had been fueled by their excitement, but eventually hit a wall of fatigue. The search was suspended until the following day.

Some additional coins were found over the following two days of detecting, but the majority had already been discovered. All told, the men had recovered an astonishing 1,078 coins. 

Mahoney’s research suggested the location of the discovered hoard was once the site of a 400- to 600-year-old military encampment. “I believe the coins were buried in pots as payroll money for the troops,” he says. “When I began searching, I scraped away the dirt and found stacks of silver coins – big stacks of silver coins – surrounded by broken, glazed pots.”

Mahoney is still cataloguing his massive find, and its value has yet been determined. To him, it’s priceless, the value of which can only be exceeded by the personal rewards of the experience itself. That experience is why he detects, and why he chooses to make his living as a metal detector dealer, helping others to find success in making their own personal discoveries. “I love the thrill and excitement of detecting,” he relates, “and helping to support the passions and pursuits of other treasure hunters is almost as rewarding.”

Like others who seek the treasures of history, Luke Mahoney will celebrate his find, but only briefly. The research will soon resume as he continues his quest to find the next hoard of ancient treasures.

Rock Around the Clock with Galco! PART 1

Header Logo

Stow-N-Go Inside the Pant Holster

PHOENIX, July 2020
Holster choice, and particularly the exact positioning on the body, is intensely personal. What’s comfortable, fast and concealable for one gun carrier may not work at all for another. That’s why Galco offers holsters for just about every position on the body, and even includes a helpful “body clock” diagram on most package labels and website product details.
Carry at the appendix position, roughly 12 o’clock to 2 o’clock for a right-handed shooter, has rapidly increased in popularity over the last decade. Galco has, of course, kept up with the trend and makes multiple holsters suitable for this carry
method. The newest of these is the
Paragon™ Kydex IWB, which is optimized for appendix carry. But many other Galco holsters are suitable for this position, including the new QuickTuk Cloud™, Scout 3.0™, Stow-N-Go™, Triton™ 2.0 and Tuck-N-Go™ 2.0 IWBs. For those who prefer OWB holsters, the Hornet™ is designed to be perfect for both appendix and crossdraw carry.
Carrying a handgun on the point of the strong hip, at about 3 o’clock, has been a popular choice for many years. Holsters with vertical angle (or neutral cant) are best suited for this method, and Galco has it covered with holsters like the
Avenger™, BlakGuard™, Halo™, Quick Slide™, TacSlide™ and Yaqui Slide.
The vertically-oriented IWBs suitable for appendix carry are also very useful in this position. None of these guidelines are written in stone, of course, and once again it comes back to the personal preferences of the shooter. Some gun carriers will, for example, place an Avenger in front of their hip and be perfectly happy with it. If that works most comfortably and efficiently with their body type, Galco fully supports them!
Finally, many Galco holsters can be adjusted for angle, from crossdraw to vertical to strongside, at the user’s discretion. This makes them the most versatile of all.

galcousa.com to see Galco’s extensive line of holsters that will let you “rock around the clock”!

SIG SAUER RENEWS TIER 3 SPONSORSHIP OF ASA

a4c46b03-aecf-4cfe-9d00-5d5cf0b38c99


NEWINGTON, NH – The American Suppressor Association (ASA), the unified voice of the suppressor community, is pleased to announce that Sig Sauer is returning as a Tier 3 sponsor of ASA for 2020. Headquartered in Newington, New Hampshire, Sig Sauer is a leading manufacturer of suppressors, firearms, ammunition, optics, and electronics.

“Sig Sauer is always on the front line to help protect our 2nd Amendment rights for lawful ownership of firearms and all things related to productive and safe usage”, said Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, Commercial Sales, Sig Sauer.  “We feel that suppressors are not only our right, but are an integral part of making a firearm more productive and safe for professionals, every day defensive and recreational shooters, and hunters.  We will continue to support pushing positive suppressor legislation forward as well as innovation to continually improve performance and safety for civilians and professionals.”

The American Suppressor Association began working with Sig Sauer in 2016, during New Hampshire’s fight to legalize the use of suppressors while hunting. The efforts proved successful, largely due to Sig’s involvement, when then Gov. Maggie Hassan signed House Bill 500 into law. Since 2019, Bobby Cox, Sig’s Vice President of Government Affairs has served as an active member of the ASA Board of Directors.

“Sig Sauer has proven to be a tremendously effective ally in our fight for pro-suppressor reform,” said Knox Williams, President and Executive Director of ASA. “At both the state and federal levels, Sig has always answered the call to help do the right thing when it comes to Second Amendment and suppressor related advocacy. As a leader in the industry, the insight, experience, and expertise that Sig brings to the table is second to none. The American Suppressor Association is proud to have Sig on our team!”

About The American Suppressor Association

The American Suppressor Association (ASA) is the unified voice of the suppressor community. We exist for one reason and one reason only: to fight for pro-suppressor reform nationwide.

The ability of the American Suppressor Association to fight for pro-suppressor reform is tied directly to our ability to fundraise. Since the ASA’s formation in 2011, 3 states have legalized suppressor ownership and 18 states have legalized suppressor hunting. Much of this would not have happened without your support. For more information on how you can join us in the fight to help protect and expand your right to own and use suppressors, visit www.AmericanSuppressorAssociation.com.

The Presidential Message recognizes America’s “rich history of fostering responsible gun ownership.” President Trump notes in his message the shooting sports’ history of community events early in the nation’s growth, bringing communities and families together. Those competitions grew and gave rise to 19th century sharpshooters, including Pawnee Bill and Annie Oakley celebrating shooting skills and a national pioneering character.

The White House message, issued during a time of record-setting firearm sales, encourages Americans to participate in the shooting sports, practice safe firearm storage and handling and seek proper instruction. President Trump reiterated his commitment to preserving and safeguarding America’s Second Amendment rights and individual liberties.

“Since my first day in office, I have made clear that my Administration will always protect and defend the Second Amendment,” President Trump wrote in his message. “We will continue to oppose those individuals and policies that attempt to tread on this essential and cherished liberty.”

The President also encouraged all Americans to share their valued shooting sports traditions with others.

“NSSF is honored President Trump recognizes and celebrates the shooting sports with all law-abiding Americans,” said Joe Bartozzi, NSSF President and Chief Executive Officer. “The firearm industry is proud of the safe and responsible example of today’s gun owners who participate in these cherished traditions and the vital role they play in teaching and reinforcing the safe and responsible ownership of firearms.”

The entire Presidential Message on National Shooting Sports Month 2020 can be found here.

NSSF Says Shot Show 2021 is ON!

SHOT Show Insider: SHOT Show All Systems Go; Silver Lining in CES Cancellation

Caesars Forum

Welcome to the latest SHOT Show Insider, written by the SHOT Show team at NSSF and our show partners to keep you informed about plans for the upcoming show as well as provide you with useful insider tips on how to have a more productive SHOT Show experience. Let us know what topics you’d like to see addressed here in upcoming issues by emailing us at shotshowinsider@nssf.org.


Chris Dolnack, NSSF

CES, the nation’s largest trade show, announced this week that it is canceling its in-person show in Las Vegas this January. With many of its major exhibitors—and its attendees—based in Asia and other parts of the world, the show was confronting increasing uncertainty involving global travel to and from the United States. If there’s a silver lining to the CES announcement, it’s that CES was to be held the week before the SHOT Show—and while we are disappointed that CES won’t be taking place, its cancellation will allow more local resources than ever before to be devoted to the SHOT Show. And both the Sands Expo Center and Caesars Forum will be primed and ready to welcome us to Las Vegas. We’ve received a number of inquiries this week about the status of the SHOT Show due to CES’s announcement, and also regarding the cancellation of the NASGW Expo in October. Rest assured, we are all systems go and we are working around the clock (our sleep patterns these days) in planning to ensure our customers’ and employees’ health and safety are at the forefront throughout our time in Las Vegas. With six months until the show, we are fortunate that we will be able to learn a lot from other shows taking place in other countries before ours. And, with six months to go, both the Sands Expo and Caesars Forum are nearly sold out for SHOT, making it our largest floorplan ever. We are well-positioned to make this the best SHOT Show we’ve ever held, and we are very much looking forward to reuniting as an industry in Las Vegas in January.

Millions of New Gun Owners Will Enjoy National Shooting Sports Month in August

For immediate release | July 31, 2020

10 great reasons to celebrate the target shooting sports and enjoy special events

NEWTOWN, Conn. – America’s millions of first-time firearm owners will find National Shooting Sports Month® in August a great time to pursue training and learn about the dozens of target shooting sports they can enjoy with their newly purchased firearm.

Developed by NSSF®, the firearm industry trade association, National Shooting Sports Month reminds everyone—newcomers as well as experienced gun owners—about the safe, fun, exciting activity of target shooting. It’s a pastime more than 52 million Americans, adults and youth, engage in.

What about the coronavirus? Whether you visit an outdoor or indoor range, target shooting is an activity where social distancing can be followed relatively easily. Also, the shooting sports are well-suited to socializing while heeding your state and local coronavirus safety guidelines.

Here’s 10 great reasons to head to the range during National Shooting Sports Month:

1.+ONESM Movement

There are many reasons more than 2.5 million people joined the firearm-owning community so far in 2020. Without a doubt, many were introduced to ownership and target shooting by a mentor. NSSF’s +ONE Movement encourages experienced shooters to be a mentor and help even more newcomers discover how to safely handle a firearm and have fun knocking knock down steel plates or breaking a clay targets. Have novices watch this video on Range Safety and Etiquette before they go.

2. Summer Shots Target

Participate in the all-new #RangeChallengeSM, a series of target games that test your marksmanship skills. The #RangeChallenge: Summer Shots target is available at participating ranges and online for download. Use the hashtag #RangeChallenge to share your experience on social media and be entered into a weekly social media giveaway to win great prizes. See instructions for complete details.

3. #LetsGoShooting

We’ve got another hashtag for you. #LetsGoShooting is the theme of National Shooting Sports Month. Share the hashtag and your experiences on your favorite social media networks and remind others to head out to the range for a day of fun and socializing. Discover the fun other target shooters are having at the range by following the #LetsGoShooting feeds.

4. A date at the range

Ask your spouse, partner, boyfriend or girlfriend to go target shooting with you. You’ll have a great time together. Send an email invitation to them at LetsGoShooting.org/plusonemovement. By the way, women are the fastest growing segment in target shooting, and more gear than ever is being designed for their fit and comfort.

5. Rediscover shooting

It’s true there are a lot of first-time gun owners out there, but National Shooting Sports Month isn’t for newcomers only. Haven’t shot in a while? Dust off your shooting gear and head to the range with an old shooting buddy or maybe your granddaughter or grandson. Clay target sports like skeet, trap and sporting clays are great for socializing (and social distancing).

6. Cash in on deals

Retailers and ranges will be offering specials during National Shooting Sports Month at thousands of events nationwide. Find a participating business near you to take advantage of these offers at LetsGoShooting.org®.

7. Tune up for hunting season

Okay, maybe you’re not a hunter, but if you’ve wanted to learn more about hunting and harvesting your own food, a trip to a firearm retailer or range can provide answers to your questions about it. You’ll learn about enrolling in a hunter education course and practicing your shooting to be ready in time for the fall seasons. Not sure where to start? Visit NSSF’s LetsGoHunting.orgTM website.

8. Practice Firearm Safety

The shooting sports are safe. Responsible gun owners safely handle their firearms and securely store them when not in use, whether at home, in a vehicle or at the range. Thanks to responsible gun owners and programs like NSSF’s Project ChildSafe®, fatal firearms accidents are at all-time low levels.

9. Celebrate Freedom and Tradition

In addition to passing on the great tradition of target shooting, you can educate others about the unique American freedoms that make participating possible. See NSSF’s Proud to be a Firearms Owner pocket card and new video also learn about NSSF’s Gun Owners CareSM.

NDIA joins call to extend Section 3610 through 2021

July 31, 2020

image001

ARLINGTON, VA – The National Defense Industrial Association is asking Congress to extend authority in Section 3610 of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act beyond Sept. 30, 2020, to Dec. 31, 2021. This is to ensure continued operations across government as the pandemic endures, the Arlington, VA-based trade association announced today.
NDIA is among eight trade associations that signed a July 31 letter to congressional leaders. The letter states that while the groups are grateful for funding included in the Senate Republican proposal to cover costs related to Section 3610, “it has become clear that the rationale for the section still exists and will continue to exist into the next fiscal year.” Section 3610 authorizes reimbursement of “extraordinary and unanticipated government contractor costs” arising from COVID-19.
Private-sector firms that support critical government agency missions “continue to face the same ‘ready state’ workforce sustainment challenges that justified the enactment of Section 3610,” the letter states. “It is for this reason that we ask you to add an extension of the authority.”
The entire letter is available here<
https://content.ndia.org/-/media/Sites/Press%20Releases/Documents/Multi-association%20Letter%20to%20Request%20Extension-July%2031%202020-FINAL.ashx?la=en>.
Signing the letter with NDIA are AFCEA International, the Associated General Contractors of America, CompTIA, The Center for Procurement Advocacy, the Intelligence and National Security Alliance, Professional Services Council and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Viridian® Introduces World’s First Hand Stop Laser

HS1_2020_Product%20Video.00_01_15_03.Still018

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – August 1, 2020 – After six decades, the AR-15 is still America’s rifle. The platform’s popularity stems from its speed and ergonomics. Now the venerable rifle design is poised to be even faster and easier to control thanks to Viridian Weapon Technologies’ HS1™, the first and only hand stop with an integrated laser sighting device.

“The HS1 combines the functionality of an AR hand stop with the rapid target acquisition provided by a Viridian green laser,” said Brian Hedeen, President and CEO at Viridian. “The combination makes for a much more ergonomic rifle and cuts down on the attachments that add bulk to a gun’s foregrip.”

Viridian’s new hand stop offers increased control and faster target acquisition with a highly visible green laser that’s intuitively activated by the grip of the shooter’s support hand.

The HS1 uses M-Lok mounts to make installation easy. The laser is adjustable for windage and elevation. The HS1’s pressure pad activates the laser with a variety of support-hand grips, adding an added element of control and speeding up time to target.

This combination of speed and control makes the HS1 an ideal addition to any AR. MSRP for the Viridian HS1 is $179.

Features

  • M-Lok Mounts
  • Pressure Pad Activation
  • Daytime-visible Green Laser
  • Ergonomic Design for Pistols and Rifles
  • Single 1/3n battery
  • Adjustable for Windage and Elevation

More information about the Viridian HS1 can be found at https://viridianweapontech.com/hs1.

ANNOUNCEMENT: GSOF SYMPOSIUM EUROPE 2020 CANCELLED

GSOF logoJuly 30, 2020

As a consequence of the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, GSOF Symposium Europe, organized by Clarion Events on behalf of the Global SOF Foundation, scheduled for October in Warsaw, Poland will no longer take place in 2020. This is a result of the continuing prohibitions and advisories against international travel put into effect by governments around the world and Poland’s introduction of COVID-19 regulations and public health directives. The next edition of GSOF Symposium Europe will be staged 26-28 October 2021 at Marriott Warsaw, Poland.

Stuart Bradin, CEO and President of Global SOF Foundation, said: “Based on health and safety considerations, on-going limitations on large gatherings, and extensive travel restrictions, it is not possible for us to conduct the Symposium as we originally envisioned. We simply cannot convene the international special operations community in a meaningful way in the current environment. We are terribly disappointed, but the health and safety of our attendees, speakers, and partners must take priority.”

Tracy Bebbington, Event Director, Clarion Events Defense and Security, said: “While the decision not to hold GSOF Symposium Europe this year is disappointing for us as organizers, it is a result of factors beyond our control. The 2021 symposium will fulfil our collective desire to execute a world-class event to highlight Poland’s important contributions to European security and the significance of special operations forces globally.

Clarion Events is one of the largest exhibition organizers in the world and holds the safety of all event attendees as its highest priority. As such the company is looking ahead to how physical distancing measures can be incorporated into the planning of all our events in the future and is contributing to broader government and event industry initiatives to support this.”

More information about the event and the plans for 2021 can be found at: https://www.gsofeurope.org/

About GSOF Symposium Europe

GSOF Symposium Europe brings together key SOF-focused representatives from the military and government. The event features a progressive conference agenda, accompanied by an exhibition of specialist product and service suppliers. The event is hosted by the Global SOF Foundation, a non-profit based out of the United States. More information: www.gsof.org

HENSOLDT supplies a Z:NightOwl M camera for high ranges as well as three Spexer 2000 3D radars with excellent detection capabilities to protect the German Armed Forces’ forward operating bases against drones. (Photo: HENSOLDT)


Taufkirchen, Germany, 30 July 2020 – HENSOLDT is supplying three Spexer2000 3D radars and one Z:NightOwl M camera as Xpeller module packages as part of the GUARDION overall system of ESG Elektroniksystem- und Logistik-GmbH and its partners for a total of five drone defense systems. They are used as part of container-based drone defense systems to protect so-called forward operating bases of the German Armed Forces in their operational areas.

“We are herewith supporting the Bundeswehr in close cooperation and coordination with ESG as prime contractor and system integrator”, explains Markus Wolf, Head of Sales and Business Development at HENSOLDT Ventures. “Our high-performance sensors complement the ESG GUARDION system perfectly to achieve the required performance spectrum. The Spexer2000 3D radar is characterized by outstanding detection capabilities, especially against asymmetric threats. The Z:NightOwl M camera was specially developed for high ranges. With it, we support drone defense against so-called Class I drones, that is, unmanned aircraft weighing up to 25 kg.”

HENSOLDT has already demonstrated its extensive experience in drone defense with its Xpeller counter-UAV system on several occasions. In addition to permanent deployment, customers also use the system for temporary protection of major events, most recently for instance during the Dutch Day of Remembrance in Amsterdam in May 2020. Xpeller distinguishes itself particularly through its modularity and scalability. The system can thus be tailored precisely to customer requirements.

Blackhawk™ Introduces TASER™ 7 Holster

BH_Serp_Taser7_1 (lowres)

New Holster Helps Keeps Officers from Confusing Their Gear in Stressful Situations

VIRGINIA BEACH, Virginia – July 30, 2020 – Blackhawk, a leader in law enforcement and military equipment for over 20 years, announces the new TASER 7 holster featuring a distinctive draw motion that helps keep officers from confusing their gear when under stress.

The holster has a cross draw or support hand draw design that allows for rocking the TASER out of the holster, rather than a traditional straight-up handgun draw. When the TASER is re-holstered, it automatically engages the active retention mechanism and TASER safety switch. The trigger is completely covered when holstered.

Other key features include Blackhawk’s new Quick Dual Release (QDR) holster platform, which allows officers to exchange the TASER and holster between shifts without having to remove other items from their duty belt. It is compatible with all Blackhawk duty platforms including belt loops, QD systems, MOLLE adapters and tactical thigh platforms.

The TASER 7 holster is currently offered in our matte black finish in both left and right-handed configurations. The Basketweave finish will become available in the coming months of 2020. Manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $54.95.

For more information on the new TASER 7 holster, visit www.blackhawk.com/holsters/.

The frame and all parts are fully machined from the finest billet steel available, and hand built by a single gunsmith. The trigger face is high polished, and the Roller Trigger is one of the most awe-inspiring aspects of this pistol that provides an unmatched trigger feel in either single or double action.

A Lothar Walther cold-forged polygon barrel is used for both extreme accuracy and performance. The Mongoose Silver is finished in a beautiful Silver DLC, as the superior material, increased polishing, and meticulous craftmanship are clearly evident through the whole revolver.​​

Henry Repeating Arms Issues Voluntary Safety Recall

Henry Repeating Arms

H015 Recall

RICE LAKE, WI – July 30, 2020 Henry Repeating Arms Company announced that it is voluntarily recalling all H015-series Single Shot Rifles and Single Shot Shotguns manufactured prior to July 1, 2020. Henry has recently discovered a potential safety issue wherein, under certain conditions, it is possible that some of these models may discharge without the trigger being pulled if the hammer is partially cocked and released. To prevent the possibility of death or serious personal injury, you should immediately stop using all H015-series Single Shot Rifles and Single Shot Shotguns and not load or fire them until they have been upgraded.

The safety issue leading to this voluntary recall was discovered internally while testing the existing fire control system for a trigger pull upgrade. This is the first product safety recall in the company’s nearly 25-year history. Although not every Henry H015-series firearm may be affected, Henry Repeating Arms is requesting that all Single Shot Rifles and Single Shot Shotguns be returned to be upgraded free of charge pursuant to this recall to prevent the possibility of the firearm discharging without the trigger being pulled. All H015 owners should visit the Henry H015 Recall website at HenryUSA.com/recall, email recall@henryusa.com, or call 1-866-200-2354 (M-F, 9AM ET-5PM ET) to obtain additional information and begin the upgrade process.

Henry Repeating Arms will upgrade all returned Single Shot Rifles and Single Shot Shotguns in the order in which they are received. Henry Repeating Arms is ready to begin performing the upgrade as the firearms are received. Information on the current turnaround time for firearms returned to be upgraded will be provided at HenryUSA.com/recall . Henry Repeating Arms will make every effort to minimize the amount of time required to upgrade and return your firearm. As a sign of appreciation to its customers, Henry Repeating Arms will also perform an unrelated performance upgrade to improve the trigger pull on all firearms returned pursuant to this recall free of charge.

Rascal%20Minimalist3

WESTFIELD, Massachusetts – July 30, 2020 – Savage Arms has taken the quintessential introductory rimfire in another bold direction. The new Rascal Minimalist mirrors the stylish lines and laminate stock of its bigger brother, Minimalist, yet retains the features and compact sizing that has made Rascal America’s favorite firearm for teaching kids marksmanship and safety skills.

“The laminate stock and bright color combinations of Rascal Minimalist make this a stylish rifle,” said Beth Shimanski, Director of Marketing for Savage. “And it demonstrates, again, Savage’s commitment to providing the very best tools to every shooter—even those who are just learning to shoot.”

International Firearms, Ammunition Manufacturer Pledges Ongoing Mental Health Awareness Support

Las Vegas, NV (July 2020) – Armscor International, Inc. has partnered with Walk the Talk America to provide funding for mental health awareness in the form of a $2,500 ongoing monthly donation.

“We are humbled by this gesture from Armscor,” Mike Sodini, WTTA’s founder, said Friday. “We have slowly and incrementally been gaining support from across the gun community and to have this ongoing contribution really means a lot.”

“WTTA’s mission statement is something Armscor/Rock Island Armory believed in from the start and look to continually support WTTA further in years to come. We look forward to working with other manufacturer’s in the coming months and years as we are stronger as a group than individually on mental health and firearms,” Armscor CFO Dustin Jones said.

Walk the Talk America’s mission is to bring the communities of firearms and mental health closer in order to prevent suicide and improve mental wellness within the gun community while also increasing firearms cultural competence among mental health practitioners. The efforts span gun ranges, retail stores, law enforcement, military veterans, and many more demographics.

Armscor, originally founded in 1905 in the Philippines, entered the United States market in 1985 and operates a manufacturing plant in Pahrump, NV, just 65 miles northwest of Las Vegas. Armscor owns the Rock Island Armory brand, known for its 1911 model pistol, and produces approximately 110 million rounds of ammunition annually.

Sodini expressed further gratitude and optimism, “We have come a long way in the two years we’ve been around and doing what we have with very limited funding,” he said. “My sincere belief is that other big industry manufacturers and dealers will see Armscor’s commitment and want to help too.”

“Preventing suicide within the firearm community is something everyone should be able to get behind and I am excited to see what we can do in the coming months and years,” he said.

Walk the Talk America is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and can be contacted at walkthewalkamerica.org.

About Walk the Talk America:

Our mission is to fund research and development for outreach and promotion of mental health to reduce the misconceptions and prejudices that exist when it comes to mental illness and firearms. We believe we can be a catalyst for change by working with experts in the mental health industry. www.walkthetalkamerica.org

Federal Ammunition Awarded $13.8 Million Delivery Order from the U.S. Army

Federal Ammunition Awarded $13.8 Million Delivery Order from the U.S. Army

ANOKA, Minnesota – July 29, 2020 – Federal Ammunition was recently given a new $13.8 million delivery order based on its contract awarded in 2017 by the U.S. Army. The order is for 5.56 NATO MK311 Frangible Ammunition, which is better known by ordnance code AA40. This military-grade, training ammunition has a 50-grain frangible bullet comprised of a non-toxic, copper and tungsten powder matrix core, and a gilding metal jacket. It disintegrates into small fragments on impact, minimizing over-penetration and ricochet hazards.

“One of the differentiators of AA40 is the use of Federal’s exclusive Catalyst primer. It’s a lead-free technology that provides the most reliable, consistent ignition possible,” said VP of Law Enforcement, Government and International Sales David Leis. “Unlike many other lead-free primer formulations, Catalyst primers have unique properties that allow them to be effectively and safely used in service ammunition. Catalyst primers have been used in hundreds of millions of rounds of ammunition delivered to military, law enforcement and commercial customers to-date.”

“We have a long history of providing high quality specialty ammunition to multiple branches of the U.S. military. Their continued trust is of the utmost importance to us, and is something we are certainly most proud of,” said Federal Ammunition President Jason Vanderbrink. “With this, Federal Ammunition continues to demonstrate surety of supply, professional capability, the ability to meet all specifications, and reliable delivery on production expectations of our military contracts.”

Federal ammunition can be found at dealers nationwide or purchased online direct. For more on Federal ammunition, visit www.federalpremium.com.

Galco’s Low Maintenance IWB Holsters!

Header Logo

Paragon IWB Holster

PHOENIX, July 2020
As we roll into August, most of the country is engulfed in the sticky summer heat. This might make carrying a gun less comfortable, but now is not the time to go unarmed. Galco comes to the rescue with three moisture-resistant, ultra-low-maintenance IWB holsters!
The new
Paragon™ offers comfortable carry, very fast draw and easy return to holster. While optimized for appendix carry, the Kydex Paragon’s dual tuckable belt clips ride in slots fore and aft of the gun body and allow wide adjustment for both ride height and carry angle. Raised sweat guards on both sides of the handgun protect the wearer’s body from the gun and promote a smooth and safe return to holster. The holster is cut low to accommodate most carry-style red dot sights. Included with the Paragon is an optional claw-type stabilizing wing for those gun carriers who prefer it.
The
Triton™ 2.0 is fast on the draw, slender in profile, and easy to conceal. The Kydex holster body allows a smooth return to the holster after the draw, while the raised sweat guard protects the pistol from corrosive perspiration – and also
protects the wearer’s skin from hard steel! The Triton 2.0’s tuckable belt clips are adjustable for cant, making it suitable for the strongside, crossdraw, or appendix carry positions.
The
Corvus™ quickly and easily converts from a belt holster to an inside-the-waistband design. With an open top for fast draw, adjustment for ride height and cant, and comfortable forward molding, the highly versatile Corvus is a superior
holster choice for defensive carry. Packaged set up for belt carry, the Kydex Corvus is easily convertible to a highly concealable IWB holster. The modern layout is designed to accommodate most carry-style red dot sights. With the Corvus, the serious gun carrier gets two fast, concealable holsters in one.

USCCA - Born To ProtectNEWTOWN, Conn. – NSSF®, the firearm industry trade association, is pleased to announce the launch of the all-new #RangeChallenge SM Series. Launched in conjunction with National Shooting Sports Month®, the #RangeChallenge Series is designed to be an easy, user-friendly target shooting activity any range can offer its customers starting in August. The first target in this new series, the #RangeChallenge Summer Shots Target, focuses on mentorship and will entertain everyone from those just getting started to seasoned target shooters.

“Experienced shooters we surveyed loved testing their skills on the games tied to the Summer Shots target, and novices working alongside mentors also had a great time with it,” said Zach Snow, NSSF Director, Retail & Range Business Development. “The #RangeChallenge Series presents our industry with a new and different target game activity with reward incentives to keep existing target shooters engaged while creating fun welcoming experiences for people taking their First Shots® or getting reintroduced.”

The United States Concealed Carry Association (USCCA) has signed on to be the official Summer Shots target sponsor of the #RangeChallengeSeries. The USCCA is a membership organization that provides comprehensive education, training and legal protection to responsibly armed Americans across the nation.

“The USCCA advocates that regular practice is the key to good handgun skills and essential to anyone who owns or carries a firearm for self-defense,” said Snow. “They also know that having fun motivates people to practice more often. We’re grateful for their support of the #RangeChallenge Series and for providing a big dose of that motivation.”

“Our mission is to educate new gun owners, protect law-abiding USCCA Members, build safer communities and save lives,” said Tim Schmidt, USCCA President and Founder. “Now more than ever, we want everyone to know we have resources to help them protect themselves and their loved ones with confidence. We hope everyone taking on the responsibility for their personal safety is motivated by the #RangeChallenge Series to head to the range and get in some quality practice during National Shooting Sports Month.”

To support customer engagement efforts with the new challenge, NSSF will be holding weekly prize giveaways to participants posting their experiences on Instagram using the #RangeChallenge hashtag. Host ranges are encouraged to add their own incentives or prizes (free range time certificates, memberships, gift cards, training class passes, etc.) to further raise awareness and increase participation. Ranges that sign up to become hosts through the national events calendar at ShootingSportsMonth.org will receive a promotional package that includes:

Spyderco Limited Edition Shaman REX 45–Made in the U.S.A.

20200728_183929

The Shaman pocket folder is a multigenerational evolution of the original Native folder introduced in 1997. Along the way, Spyderco improved each subsequent offering to more closely meet the needs of law enforcement and the military. Its Native name should not invoke visions of our great Native American Chief Geronimo; instead it reflects its Made in the U.S.A. lineage.
