Catalyst Arms Introduces A True Precision Rifle Handguard For AR-15 and Ruger Precision Rifles

Beaverton, OR – Catalyst Arms, LLC, a firearms accessory company, has introduced Fast Track™, a true precision rifle handguard for AR-15s and the Ruger Precision Rifle.  Designed for precision rifle competitors and long-range shooters, Fast Track™ has the features they have asked for in a handguard such as an integrated Arca Swiss style rail, flat sides and bottom, a smooth top for greater scope clearance and M-LOK® slots for accessories.

Fast Track™ has an Arca Swiss style rail the full length of the bottom of the handguard. This provides maximum versatility for mounting directly to tripods or attaching accessories that can be quickly moved forward or backward as the shooting situation requires. Unlike add on rails that stop well before the magazine well, Fast Track’s full-length rail allows shooters to put the rifle action up against barricades or mount tripods as far back as possible for maximum stability. The integrated rail is also a non-snag design that will not hang up on gear or while sliding the rifle back and forth or getting into position. The flat sides and bottom make the Fast Track™ much more stable than round handguards when shooting from bags, barricades, packs or other surfaces. A low-profile top provides maximum scope clearance for mounting optics as close to the bore as possible. M-LOK® slots run the length of the handguard at the 3, 6 and 9 o’clock positions for mounting other rails or accessories. For ease of installation Fast Track™ attaches to both AR-15s and Ruger Precision Rifles via a dual barrel nut system that is easy to align and torque to proper specification.

Machined from 6061-T6 aluminum and hard coat anodized black, the Fast Track™ is lightweight and has a slim profile that is easy to hold and maneuver. The Catalyst Arms Fast Track™ is available for shipment February 1, 2019 with an MSRP of $219.95. For more information go to www.catalystarms.com

CO2 series features a 20 rd mag, full blowback and can shoot velocities of up to 325 fps.  The airsoft pistol series are powered by green gas (with CO2 magazines available) and can shoot up to 280 fps in the compact models, and up to 330 fps in the standard models.

Both the airsoft and airgun versions offer interchangeable backstraps, like its firearm counterpart, for ergonomic comfort.  The 3.8″ compact versions offer coordinating grip frame extensions to allow the use of the longer 4.5″ version magazines.

Both BB and airsoft models will be available in all black and black frame/silver slide finishes starting in spring 2019.

“We are beyond excited to be launching both theM1 Carbine rifle series and XD(M)® pistol series as our first replicas from the iconic Springfield Armory® line of firearms,” said Val Gamerman, President of Air Venturi. “The M1 Carbine embodies the history of the revered firearm that was used not only the U.S. military, but by military, paramilitary and police forces around the world.  The XD(M)® series of pistols, available in 8 different configurations, will be available in spring 2019, and will be a hit with airgunners, replica enthusiasts and airsoft fans alike.”

“With the 2019 release of the M1 Carbine and XD(M)® officially licensed replicas, this marks Springfield Armory’s first chapter in the airgun and airsoft industry,” stated Steve McKelvain, Springfield Armory® President. “This is the first of many replica rifles and pistols that will solidify both Air Venturi and Springfield Armory’s place in the progression of quality airguns and airsoft guns.”

SIG SAUER Receives Three NRA Golden Bullseye Award for 2019

 

Newington, N.H. (January 18, 2019) – SIG SAUER, Inc. is pleased to announce that it has been recognized with three NRA Golden Bullseye Awards for 2019 from multiple NRA publications across multiple product categories.

SIG SAUER Receives Three NRA Golden Bullseye Award for 2019

To qualify for a Golden Bullseye Award, products must meet the following criteria: 1) be introduced and available to the consumer prior the awarding of the Golden Bullseye, 2) have been tested by a staff member of the publication or affiliated media, 3) have proven reliability in the field, and meet or exceed evaluator expectations, 4) be innovative in design and function, 5) be perceived as a value to the purchaser, and 6) be styled in a manner for the shooting and hunting industry.

Shooting Illustrated, 2019 Golden Bullseye, “Handgun of the Year: P365 Micro-Compact Pistol”:Since its introduction in January 2018, the SIG SAUER P365 pistol has taken the market by storm, and is the top selling pistol on the market today.  The P365 is an everyday, concealed carry pistol. This high capacity micro-compact pistol is smaller and lighter than other pistols in its class. It features a high-capacity, patented modified double-stack magazine for a 10+1 full-size capacity, with 12-round factory made magazines available for 13-round capacity.

“Since the P365 was introduced to the world, the pistol has received high praise for its revolutionary design combining micro-compact sizing, with full-size capacity,” began Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer, and Executive Vice President, Commercial Sales, SIG SAUER, Inc.  “The P365 pistol has overwhelmingly become the industry choice for Handgun of the Year, and to be able to add Shooting Illustrated’s NRA Golden Bullseye for Handgun of the Year to this list of expanding accolades is truly exceptional.”

American Rifleman, 2019 Golden Bullseye, “Ammunition Product of the Year: SIG Elite 365 Ammunition”: Elite performance ammunition designed for short barrel, concealed carry pistols, such as its namesake – the revolutionary P365 everyday carry high-capacity, micro-compact pistol.  Available in Full Metal Jacket (FMJ) and V-Crown, SIG 365 ammunition uses a proprietary blend of low-flash, clean burning powders for maximum performance, shootability, and reduced recoil.

“When we introduced the 365 pistol, we wanted to take it to the next level and optimize the user experience.  We did this by developing the SIG Elite 365 ammunition specifically engineered for all short barrel concealed carry pistols,” added Taylor.  “To have the SIG Elite 365 ammunition recognized with American Rifleman’s NRA Golden Bullseye for Ammunition Product of the Year is really the exclamation point on the 365 story, and we are incredibly proud.”

American Hunter, 2019 Golden Bullseye, “Optic of the Year: SIG SAUER BDX System”: The SIG SAUER Electro-Optics BDX system combines traditional hunting equipment with technology.  BDX™ is a fully integrated rangefinder and riflescope system that utilizes Applied Ballistics Ultralight and Bluetooth™ to calculate and illuminate the exact holdover dot for the perfect shot. BDX™ is simple, fast, and intuitive – just connect the dot. The SIG BDX app is free and available for Android or iOS devices.

“When developing the BDX system our goal was to couple innovation with equipment that hunters and sportsmen were accustomed to. This NRA Golden Bullseye award from American Hunter is affirmation that we achieved what we set out to do by combining advanced ballistics technology into the simple, affordable, and easy to use BDX platform,” concluded Andy York, President, SIG SAUER Electro-Optics.

Crosstac, US Made Gear for Serious Shooters, Signs Laura Burgess Marketing

Crosstac, founded 17 years ago to meet the needs of competitive shooter needs, is set to grow significantly in 2019.

Loveland, Col. (January 2019) Crosstac, the innovator behind tactical/shooting gear for the serious competitor to the beginner shooter, is pleased to announce it has signed Laura Burgess Marketing (LBM) as its agency of record. LBM will represent Crosstac in matters pertaining to public, media and social relations.

Crosstac founder and president, Bret Heidkamp, found a problem with poorly designed gear for competitive shooters over 17 years ago, and did something about it. As a serious shooter himself, he continually ran into products that were clearly not designed by shooters. From IPSC Open Class to early long-range rifle matches, such as the International Tactical Rifleman Championship (ITRC), he gathered ideas for potential products along the way. He teamed up with fellow firearms enthusiast, Steve Nettik, whose background in product design and manufacturing helped bring the projects from concept to reality. Crosstac’s first product was the Ambi Sling Connector and slowly but surely, Crosstac started a loyal following of fans.

Bret and Steve focused on keeping products American-made to assure quality up to their exacting standards. Crosstac is not a company to make products for product sake because every product they develop is a problem solver. Take for example their Precision Long Range Shooting Mat. Every nylon gear company sells a shooting mat, but it takes a competitive shooter to realize what functionality needs to be designed into the mat for the benefit of the shooter. The Crosstac Precision Long Range Shooting Mat rolls out flat and stays flat, even in the coldest weather. It’s wide enough for the rifle and the shooter at the same time and rugged enough to keep the terrain from poking through or annoying the shooter. It’s the shooting mat of choice for the USA F-Class T/R Shooting Team.

Another item that Crosstac has taken to a new level is their D-2 Tactical Belt, the first belt that can fully conceal a super-thin Boker Credit Card knife comfortably. Other design firsts are their Pro-Maintenance Mat that is really a portable range/bench mat with embedded magnets to keep those small parts from getting lost, and lots of pouches and zippered compartments to keep it organized, plus Impact pads to drive pins or drift sights. Crosstac’s innovation is purpose-driven by shooters for shooters.

“We’ve done very well in this industry, mainly because we make a superior product that fulfills the needs and expectations of shooters,” Heidkamp said. “We are ready to expand the Crosstac brand into a larger audience and for that we have signed up with Laura Burgess Marketing. Our goal is to increase awareness of our product offerings and performance throughout the shooting sports industry and we feel comfortable that LBM is the team to do it.”

New “smart” flash-bang makes first-ever debut at Industry Day at the Range™



Liberty Dynamic device designed to be safer, more accurate, than current stun grenades

COLORADO SPRINGS, Co.—January 18, 2019Liberty Dynamic announced that it will be showcasing for the first time ever its Enhanced Diversionary Device at the SHOT Show®  Industry Day at the Range™, on January 21, at the Boulder Rifle and Pistol Club, in Boulder City, Nevada.
This new, programmable, enhanced blast flash-bang is designed to be safer than legacy devices still being used by the military and law enforcement. “Our goal is to provide peacekeepers with a reliable first line of defense,” said John Chapman, CEO of Liberty Dynamic.
“The problem with most stun grenades is they can go off when they aren’t supposed to, roll towards an unintended target, cause fires and scatter secondary debris,” said Chapman. “All of that leads to death, injury and lawsuits.”
The Enhanced Diversionary Device, an advanced flash-bang developed by Liberty Dynamic and supported in part by a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant from the U.S. Air Force, is meant to solve all those problems—and be cost-efficient at the same time.
The Enhanced Diversionary Device has a microprocessor-controlled “smart” fuse providing:

  • Precise detonation
  • Greater reliability and safety for uniformed men, women, and civilians.

The Enhanced Diversionary Device also has an ergonomic, rectangular design to prevent out-of-control rolling, while the detonation itself is powered by binary energetic material.
“We use a proprietary fuel-air technology that doesn’t rely on flash powder,” Chapman explained.
“As a result, we cut down on fire, smoke and secondary debris being kicked up and injuring people.”
In addition, the Enhanced Diversionary Device is reloadable, saving end users money.
“This isn’t your granddaddy’s flash-bang,” Chapman said.
For more information about Liberty Dynamic and our Enhanced Diversionary Device, come by Spot 13, at the Boulder Rifle and Pistol Club, during the SHOT Show® Industry Range Day™. Or visit our website at
www.libertydynamic.com.

About Liberty Dynamic

Founded in 2017, Liberty Dynamic is a small, veteran-operated engineering company headquartered in Colorado Springs that specializes in non-lethal tactical equipment. Our team is drawn from military veterans who served in the field and is committed to delivering superior products that save lives.

Shooter-Favorite Hearing Protection Gets New Covert Colors

BOOTH #2020 AT SHOT SHOW

From tactical ops to the hunting blind, NEW Honeywell Howard Leight MULTICAM models bring the advantages of stealth to the popular Impact Sport electronic earmuff line

WESTWOOD, Mass. (January 22, 2019) – Honeywell’s Howard LeightTM brand enjoys a 45-year history of industry leadership and technological innovation in sound management and hearing conservation. Today’s shooting sports enthusiasts are among the beneficiaries of this legacy, which includes over 160 awarded patents and a proven portfolio of trusted hearing protection products that help recreational and competitive shooters perform their best, while more safely enjoying the activities they love.

Since its introduction, the Honeywell Howard Leight ImpactTM Sport electronic earmuff has become a favored addition to the range bags of shooters throughout the world. Impact Sport’s performance, comfort and slim, ergonomic design make it a versatile earmuff for most shooting situations and environments, including rifle, shotgun, handgun, hunting and tactical applications.

Now, this proven performer has become even more versatile, with the addition of three new MULTICAM® covert colors for 2019.

Impact Sport MULTICAM brings the advantages of stealth and concealment to hunters and tactical operators who want to protect their hearing in the field without compromising their cover. Of course, Impact Sport MULTICAM is sure to be appreciated by anyone else who loves the tacticool look.

MULTICAM patterns take advantage of the way the human eye and brain perceive shape, volume and color. Since only a very small portion of the human eye perceives color, the brain does a lot of “filling in” for the eyes. The unique, high-resolution design of MULTICAM causes observers to “see” the pattern as part of the background.

Beneath its new, covert aesthetic, Impact Sport’s internal circuitry allows ambient and low-frequency sounds to be safely amplified up to four times to a peak of 82dB, making it easy for wearers to hear range commands or approaching game and conduct conversation, even in noisy environments. Amplification automatically shuts off at 82dB, attenuating hazardous impulse noises from gunfire.

Impact Sport features a sleek, extremely low-profile earcup design with carefully engineered cutouts that allow shooters to shoulder a rifle or shotgun while maintaining clearance from the firearm stock. Lightweight and comfortable for all-day wear, Impact Sport incorporates a padded headband with vertical height adjustments for a secure, non-slip fit. When not in use, the headband and earcups fold for easy, compact storage.

Durable, recessed microphones—one on each side—reduce wind noise while providing stereo sound. This feature—combined with MULTICAM concealment options and up to 4X amplification—makes Impact Sport a great option for hunters or tactical professionals who want to stay concealed and protect their hearing in the field while also increasing their ability to hear game, people and conversation. Impact Sport is also equipped with an external 3.5mm AUX jack and an included cord for convenient connection to a phone, computer, MP3 player or scanner.

Honeywell Howard Leight Impact Sport Electronic Earmuff Features

  • 22dB Noise Reduction Rating (NRR)
  • Automatically shuts off noise over 82dB
  • Up to 4X amplification
  • Sleek, extremely low-profile earcup design with cutout allows for clearance of firearm stock
  • Adjustable fit
  • Convenient folding design for easy storage
  • Premium padded headband
  • Recessed stereo microphones
  • Single control knob for on/off and volume adjustment
  • Efficient power consumption and automatic 4-hour shutoff deliver 350 hours of battery life
  • AUX jack connects to MP3 players and scanners (3.5mm audio connection cord included)
  • Powered by two included AAA batteries
  • Replacement ear cushions available
  • Available in five solid colors and three MULTICAM colors

Something Awesome This Way Comes!

 

Patience, Bersa fans, five of your favorite Bersa handguns will have threaded models available in Spring 2019.

Wanamassa, NJ (January 2019)Eagle Imports, Inc., the exclusive distributor of Bersa products, have listened to the sounds of silence, and have responded by producing threaded barrel versions of their most popular Bersa pistols: the BP9CC, Thunder .380 and .22, and the newest and hottest Bersa models, the TPR9 and TPR9C. The suppressor-ready Bersa’s will be available in the spring of 2019.

The advances in suppressor science include lighter weight cans and more caliber options from a variety of manufacturers available for handgun owners. The sound suppression is a welcome benefit, as is the lessened recoil. A suppressor can also aid in accuracy by reducing recoil which makes getting back on target quicker. When using a suppressor for personal defense, your ears will thank you, since most likely you won’t be grabbing hearing protection along with your handgun when an intruder breaks into your house. For first time shooters and gun owners, a suppressor makes target practice much more pleasurable for everyone around.

“We have found many first-time gun owners purchase a Bersa handgun. Now, we will be able to offer the option of buying your first handgun, or second or third Bersa, with a threaded barrel, whether it is for suppression or just because it looks cool,” Michael Sodini, president of Eagle Imports, Inc., said. “It’s all part of listening to our customers and developing products that keep them coming back.”

The Bersa Thunder, one of Eagle Imports top sellers, is an ergonomic, compact handgun available in two popular calibers: .380 ACP and .22LR. It’s also a very popular EDC with its thumb safety that works as a decocker, allowing a round to be safely carried in the chamber. For those who like a 9mm, the Bersa BP9CC is the ultimate for personal protection. Lightweight, compact and with plenty of firepower, this 9mm, now with a threaded barrel, will become an all-time favorite. The TPR9 and the compact TPR9C, Bersa’s newest introduction for pistols in the law enforcement market, provides LE and security personnel a new tool in protection with the addition of the threaded barrel model.

Parabon® Snapshot DNA Analysis Assist with 32 Positive Identifications in 2018

New Year’s Eve ID Caps Off Record-Breaking Year of Cold Case Solves

Reston, Va. (18 Jan 2019) — With the positive DNA identification of William Louis Nichols on New Year’s Eve, announced last week by the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) in Florida, Parabon® NanoLabs (Parabon) closed out a historic year in DNA forensics, their law enforcement customers tallying 32 such IDs in all. Nichols, arrested for the 1983 rape of a 12-year old girl, is the latest suspect to be pinpointed with the aid of Parabon’s unique combination of Snapshot® DNA analysis tools, which includes genetic genealogy, phenotyping, SNP mixture deconvolution and kinship testing. Over the past year, information generated by Snapshot analysis proved stunningly accurate, providing crime solvers with case-breaking leads for investigations that, on average, had been cold for over 20 years. Since the introduction of its genetic genealogy service in May 2018, the company has seen a solve rate of nearly one case per week.

“At first, even to us, it was startling to witness the speed with which our genetic genealogy work was able to assist investigators make identifications, and yet now, just six or so months later, we have come to expect a successful identification nearly every week,” says CeCe Moore, who heads up Parabon’s genetic genealogy unit. “Agencies worldwide are using the information we provide to advance their cases and, like HCSO, they generally let us know when they have been able to get a confirmatory DNA match.”

While the majority of cases brought to Parabon have been cold, often for decades, Snapshot is increasingly being used to assist in active investigations. Parabon CEO, Dr. Steven Armentrout, sees this as a positive trend. “In terms of societal and economic benefit, the highest and best value of these tools is at the front end of an investigation, where they have the potential to prevent repeat offenses and save years of investigation.” he said. “Moreover, the likelihood of solving a case is much greater when evidence is fresh.” As more agencies embrace the use of Snapshot services for active investigations, the company expects to see an even higher closure rate than achieved in 2018. “If trends continue, we could see 75–100 solves in the coming year,” says Armentrout.

About Parabon® NanoLabs, Inc.:

Parabon NanoLabs is a vertically integrated DNA technology company that develops next-generation forensic and therapeutic products, which leverage the enormous power of DNA. Staffed by a uniquely qualified team of scientists, technologists and analysts, with expertise ranging from bioinformatics and chemistry to computer science and genetic genealogy, Parabon is bringing to market revolutionary new products and services made possible by recent advances in DNA sequencing, analysis and manufacturing technologies.

Knife Rights Supporter R. Lee "The Gunny" Ermey Buried with Honors at Arlington National Cemetery

On Friday, longtime Knife Rights Supporter R. Lee “The Gunny” Ermey was buried with full military honors at Arlington National Cemetery. This was the final step in his journey since his passing back in April of last year. The Gunny was an incredible human being, one of the warmest and nicest gentlemen you’d ever want to meet. I will cherish having known and worked with him. He was a true patriot and a staunch Knife Rights supporter who said of this organization, “I whole-heartedly endorse the work of Knife Rights and support their mission! I detest the fact that such an organization is even necessary in the United States of America.”
Video of portions of the burial service can be viewed at:
https://youtu.be/MacqEVNZ7mM
He frequently mentioned Knife Rights in his writings and talks. He was steadfast in his support. His support also included multiple years of autographed donations to our Ultimate Steel™ Spectacular fundraisers (courtesy of KA-BAR and Glock). Last year’s is shown below. (Brady Miller photo.

He is sorely missed. Semper Fi, Gunny. Rest in Peace.

Additional features of the MCX Rattler Canebrake include a 2-stage flat-blade match trigger, Cerakote E190 finished upper and lower, a folding coyote-tan PCB, and comes with one 30-round polymer 300BLK Magpul™ magazine.

  • Barrel length: 5.5”
  • Barrel Twist: 1:5”

UMAREX Unveils the First 12-Shot Repeating Gas Piston Pellet Rifle

Fort Smith, Ark. (January 17th, 2019) – Umarex USA unveils the revolutionary Umarex® Synergis—the first 12-shot repeating gas piston pellet rifle, during SHOT Show 2019 In Las Vegas, Nevada. The Umarex Synergis is the first gas piston under lever rifle to offer an in-line repeating action, fixed barrel, and removable magazine. The patent-pending Airflow Boost Technology(AAT) with auto-loading probe mechanism automatically seats a pellet from the magazine into the chamber upon cocking and reaches 1000 FPS with lead pellets.

Its 12-round RapidMagUnder Lever System combined with its patent-pending Airflow Boost Technology makes the Umarex Synergis the easiest, most convenient and technologically advanced .177 caliber pellet rifle available. 

“Our engineering team has worked tirelessly to achieve all identified goals for this rifle. They’ve certainly exceeded each one,” said Steve Lamboy, Senior Director of Strategic Product Development. “First it’s a true repeater, providing 12 shots from a removable auto-indexing magazine. Second, it’s an under lever, meaning the fixed barrel and breech block are never out of line with the air cylinder as it would be if it were a break barrel. That means inherent accuracy. Third, its innovative cocking mechanism automatically advances the magazine and loads and seats a pellet into the breech chamber. Fourth, it achieves a velocity of 1,000 feet per second through our engineering collaboration on our new Airflow Boost Technology. And finally, we incorporated a full shroud to silence the rifle like you’d find on quality PCP air rifles, like the Gauntlet.”

“There’s not another gas piston repeating pellet rifle that’s as fast to shoot as the Umarex Synergis. It’s going to reinvigorate the pellet rifle market.” Said Richard Turner, President of Umarex USA, Inc. “It has functionality like never before seen in a pellet rifle, especially for one that retails for $169.”

Operating the Umarex Synergis is simple. Load the magazine, which received its style and functionality cues from the popular Umarex Gauntlet magazine. Pull down on the under lever and insert the magazine. When you return the lever to its original position under the barrel, the RapidMag System seats a pellet precisely into the breech. After you’ve shot the first pellet, just actuate the rifle’s under lever again, which advances the magazine and automatically inserts another pellet.

UMAREX sporting airguns, optics, airsoft guns, long distance lights, and accessories are available at local sporting goods dealers and retail locations around the world. Sporting goods dealers may order UMAREX products from many established outdoor goods distributors.

It’s Not a Toilet or Urinal !

It’s Shot Show weekend so many of you are traveling, or getting ready to leave for Vegas so have a safe trip. If you’re driving get an adequate amount of rest, if applicable, and drive safely.

It’s Friday and time for our weekly shoot-the-shit. We recommend shooting the shit regularly rather than listening to a jackass who studied psychology so they could understand themselves. During this type of social interaction, participants don’t need to know anything about the subject being discussed, so you are free to make unsupported statements, use uncensored profanity, insult anyone you wish or change the subject altogether. So, let’s get started.

1405402829784

Today’s topic is an in-depth discussion of a little know bathroom fixture called the “Bidet (pronounce B-day).”

The Bidet is not a common bathroom fixture in the United States, but if you travel to Europe or if you mingle with the upper echelon of America’s society you are likely to encounter one.

The Bidet is designed specifically to enhance personal hygiene by facilitating genital and anal cleanliness. These anatomical areas are often ignored because they cannot be conveniently cleaned. Yet it’s particularly important to women.

After completing a bowl movement, women must be extremely careful to wipe using a slow upward motion. If you clean yourselves using a downward motion, you risk accumulation fecal matter at the vagina. As you know, feces is teeming with bacteria so you risk developing a severe infection. The vaginal wall mucosa is like a Petri dish and once infected it is difficult to treat, and you could experience severe vaginal discharges with a permeating pungent aroma that is offensive to the average olfactory senses.

Men don’t have the same issues as women but they tend not to be thorough when cleaning themselves after a bowl movement, resulting in the embarrassing and revealing staining of underwear.

The bottom line is that genital and anal hygiene is paramount, and indeed, the hallmark of excellent personal hygiene.

Image result for bidet

There are a number of Bidet designs and they often look like a toilet, or urinal, but keep in mind that although a Bidet drains, it cannot be flushed. The Bidet supplies a temperature controlled stream of water that can be focused to clean the vaginal and anal areas. Urinating in a Bidet although possible would expose you as an imbecil.

To properly use the Bidet, complete your bowl movement and tissue cleaning then move to the Bidet, adjust the water temperature to your liking and open the water jet with as much pressure as you feel comfortable with.

This video will provide you with a simple overview of how to properly use the Bidet.


Have a great weekend, be safe, enjoy Shot Show and Vegas!

The Real Show Stopper. See American Range Systems at SHOT Show.

 

ARS bullet traps safely stop bullets known for maximum stopping power; turn any suitable space into a shooting range

It takes utmost confidence to steadily advance to within a foot of a bullet trap’s face while pouring in everything from 9mm to .50 BMG rounds. Yet, that’s what Gary Mol, founder of American Range Systems, routinely does while testing the company’s many innovative bullet trap designs.

American Range Systems bullet traps are setting the pace for personal and professional range applications, facilitating the transformation of almost any space—from basements and barns to backyards and farms—into shooting ranges. Nine distinct models are available across ARS’sRanger, Warrior, Mobile and Badger lines, offering rugged, safe and reliable performance in any shooting application, from .22LR to .50 BMG.

The new ARS Mobile bullet trap is both versatile and affordable. It adjusts from ground height up to 6’ and is designed for calibers ranging from .22LR to the most potent .300 magnums, offering an incredible combination of portability and flexibility.

“You can hook it to an ATV and take it over uneven terrain, or put in in the back of a pickup and easily move it around in training settings,” says Mol. “Shooting paper targets at a range has its place, but the mobile unit is invaluable in terms of injecting challenge and authenticity. Tape a standard 16×24-inch target to it and move it around, creating variability for the situation without requiring security personnel to deviate from their vantage point. Move the target – not the shooter!” 

Besides the Mobile unit, American Range Systems’ consumer lineup consists of the popular Ranger series, designed for handguns; Badger clearing boxes for gunsmiths, gun shops and law enforcement that can handle .300 magnums; and the Warrior series, which includes the mighty Warrior 858 Max and versatile Warrior 540. The Warrior 858 Max stops everything .357 Mag up to .50 BMG, including ball ammo, armor piercing and tracer rounds.

The units set up easily. Just attach a target and zero your weapon, then back off and shoot.

“You can shoot as close as you want, which is great for practicing with your pistol, “Mol says. “Hunting enthusiasts who like to work up their own loads can set a unit in their basement or garage near their reloading bench and shoot through a chronograph and do all the ballistics work you could never get done at a public range.”

So, how do American Range Systems traps do such an effective job at stopping bullets? The technical term is “inelastic collision.” First, a uniquely designed, self-healing ballistic face slows down projectiles on impact. The bullet then collides back & forth with the ballistic compound medium that rapidly slows its momentum. If a bullet passes through the medium, the patented rear-angled AR-500 steel panels deflect high-powered projectiles back into the ballistic medium where they stop. ARS traps don’t result in the intense bullet fragmentation often seen in other trap designs. Users can reclaim the lead, since the bullets stay largely intact. This patented design solves both safety and environmental concerns.

The self-healing face material includes several layers of woven-in fabric. “I’m bringing a new face to the SHOT Show,” Mol says. “We shot it about 74,000 times and the unit was still working with that face. We’ve got some faces that have been shot more than 30,000 times and still look almost brand new.”

Mol calls maintenance on American Range Systems units “the utmost in simplicity. All you need is a ¾-inch wrench, a dustpan and a broom; that’s it. Simply remove two bolts and swing the door open. The old face hangs on two pins inside the door. You take the old one off, put the new one on, shut the door and tighten it. “I wish I could make it sound more complicated!” Mol says.

Doug Veldhuizen, National Sales Manager for ARS parent company, Nexus Outdoors, notes that a reliable American Range Systems bullet trap on a personal range helps mitigate the otherwise worrisome liability concerns about bullets going awry. “There are all kinds of potential safety problems associated with shooting on private property ranging from deflected bullets hitting neighboring livestock to ricochets hitting vehicles or dwellings. These units can solve many of those problems.”

Attendees at next week’s SHOT Show can take a personal look at American Range Systems’ new Mobile model in the New Products Center, and talk with Mol and Veldhuizen while viewing additional ARS models at Booth #2333.

Axeon Second Zero Opens Up Long Range Possibilities

FORT SMITH, Ark. (January 16, 2019) – The Axeon® Second Zero® is a precision optical device that gives any rifle shooter an instant additional zero distance whether in hunting or tactical application. It works with all optical sights from rifle scopes to dot sights.
Shooters typically zero their rifles with one consistent load at a known distance. The Second Zero provides your optic either a 4.3 or 11.5 MOA adjustment just by flipping its prismatic lens in front of your rifle scope or red dot. For many popular rifle loads this equates to an additional zero of 330 or 530 yards.
A 3×9 scope dialed in at 100 yards makes a .30-06 a versatile hunting tool. But what happens when a deer breaks through the hedgerow more than 320 yards out? While some hunters are well versed in ballistics and bullet drop, many don’t readily keep that information accessible or can recall in that short moment of “trophy opportunity”. The Second Zero offers a simple solution that eliminates the need for hold-over. There’s no complex math involved. Simply flip down the Second Zero precision lens, put the crosshairs on the target, and pull the trigger.

The Second Zero, a patented prism optical device invented by John Baker of TACOHMQ, will revolutionize the way shooters achieve accuracy at long distances. It mounts forward of a traditional scope or other optic such as a red dot or ACOG. Optics function normally when the Second Zero is not being used. When engaged, the prisms of the Second Zero, shift the image by its pre-determined MOA value to compensate for bullet drop. Simply place the crosshairs on the target just as you would at 100 yards.
Mounting the Second Zero is simple. Attach it to the bell of a scope or install the rail mount model on available rail space in front of an optic using its quick connect mount. The prismatic lens shifts the optical image without magnification, so the size of the target doesn’t change. Because it shifts the target image optically (not mechanically) before a targeting device “sees” that image, the shift works when paired with any optic. Precision alignment is not required. The shooter sees the same image before and after the Second Zero is employed.
The Second Zero is the fastest way to compensate for bullet drop at extended range. In less time than it takes to read this sentence, and without looking away from the target, a shooter can instantly pull up the Second Zero. Available online now and from gun dealers in spring 2019 for an MSRP of $79.99.

VIRIDIAN TO SHOWCASE FACT DUTY™ WEAPON-MOUNTED CAMERAS AT LAS VEGAS METRO POLICE DEPARTMENT RANGE DAY

 

 

89524529-590b-4629-a02c-38ae66cb3d41MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – January 15, 2019 – Viridian Weapon Technologies will be exhibiting the FACT Duty Weapon Mounted Camera (WMC) at the 2019 Las Vegas Metro Police Department Range Day held on January 21 in Las Vegas, NV.
Last year, nearly 1,000 LE professionals came out to the Las Vegas Metro Police Department Range Day to learn about products from over 40 of the top law enforcement manufacturers. Admission to the event is free for all active and retired Fire Department, EMS, Military, and Law Enforcement officials. Credentials are required for entry and one guest (at least 18 years old) will be permitted.
During the event, Viridian will display several popular technologies and products, including the
FACT Duty Weapon-Mounted Camera. This unique Weapon-Mounted Camera provides an unobstructed view of critical use-of-force events from the end of the firearm, addressing limitations officers can face with body cameras. The highly advanced WMC employs a 1080p full-HD digital camera with a microphone and 500 lumen tactical light. Viridian’s proprietary INSTANT-ON® technology automatically activates the camera and microphone whenever the officer draws the firearm from its holster. Not only does this eliminate risk of failure to manually turn on the camera during a critical event, but it also keeps the officer from fumbling with cumbersome equipment.
Body and dash cameras were not designed to capture officer-involved shootings. However, Viridian WMCs were designed specifically for this purpose. More information on FACT Duty WMCs can be found
online.
