SIG Custom Works Collaborates with Team SIG’s Max Michel to Develop the P320MAX

NEWINGTON, N.H., (February 18, 2021) – SIG SAUER is pleased announce the continued expansion of the SIG Custom Works series of pistols with the introduction of the P320MAX.  The SIG Custom Works P320MAX has been concepted and designed with Team SIG Captain Max Michel and is optimized for Carry Optics competition.

“The is a highly anticipated SIG Custom Works release because it incorporates the extensive Carry Optics competition experience of Team SIG Captain Max Michel into both its function and design,” began Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, SIG SAUER, Inc.  “The P320MAX is a high-performance pistol built with the exclusive TXG grip module that infuses tungsten into the polymer material providing the weight of steel with the flex of polymer.  Additionally, for the first time in a SIG Custom Works build, we have incorporated a factory-installed red dot optic using Max’s competition optic, the ROMEO3MAX, making this pistol a great choice for the competitive shooter, or anyone looking to take their game to the next level.”

The SIG SAUER P320MAX is a 9mm striker-fired pistol, built around the TXG tungsten infused heavy XFULL grip module with a flat skeletonized trigger.  The SIG Custom Works P320MAX features a completely redesigned slide with custom wrap-around serrations for ideal side and top manipulation and is fit with a 5” match grade bull barrel, one-piece stainless steel guide rod, and both a 14lb. and 12lb. 1911-style recoil spring, allowing for an easily customized shooting experience.  The pistol comes standard with a SIG SAUER Electro-Optics 6MOA ROMEO3MAX, and (4) 21-round steel magazines.

The SIG SAUER ROMEO3MAX is an open reflex sight featuring a 30mm wide, round lens design for superior field-of-view, a special red-notch filter for vivid red dot and unrivaled optical clarity, available with a 3 or 6 MOA dot size for rapid target engagement, twelve illumination intensity levels, MOTAC activation, and up to 20,000 hours of runtime.

“From the first time I held the P320 I knew it was a game changer, and it has been an incredible experience to work with the SIG product team to provide input in the development of the P320XFIVE LEGION which led to the creation of the P320MAX,” added Team SIG Captain Max Michel.  “The P320MAX provides the perfect performance pistol setup beginning with the TXG grip module which softens the recoil and stabilizes the dot so you can get on target faster.  The newly designed upper adds functionality for better pistol manipulation during competition, provides a direct mount for the ROMEO3MAX, and looks great with the wrap around serrations.  I can’t wait to begin my 2021 competition season using the P320MAX.”

Belgium Naval & Robotics – Naval Group and ECA GROUP consortium – announces today a contract award from the Defense Material Organization (DMO) of the Ministry of Defense of the Netherlands worth over 20 million euros. Complementary to and anticipating the deliveries of 6 mine hunters and associated drone systems within the Belgian-Dutch Mine Countermeasures (MCM) capability replacement program, the Netherlands Ministry of Defense awards a new contract to the consortium to provide the Royal Netherlands Navy with unmanned and autonomous systems for their Operational Tests and Evaluation (OT&E) program.

  • The subsea drone A18-M AUV (autonomous underwater vehicle) for mine detection, which has already been successfully tested within the Sandy Coast exercise in September 2020;
  • The Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) for mine identification and neutralisation SEASCAN MK2 and K-STER;
  • A surface naval drone INSPECTOR 90 USV;
  • A Command and Control (C2) container equipped with mine warfare data center and operating consoles;

The delivery of the MCM toolbox will start over the next few months and will be completed within 24 months. Throughout the duration of the contract, Belgium Naval & Robotics will support the Royal Netherlands Navy with training, documentation, maintenance and technical support.

“In line with our commitment within the rMCM program of the Belgian and Netherlands navies, we are proud to continue and reinforce our support to the Royal Netherlands Navy. The (r)evolutionary stand-off Mine Countermeasures concept of the two navies is taking shape and we are proud to contribute to it with our technological solutions together with our partner Naval Group”, states Guénaël GUILLERME, CEO of ECA GROUP.
“Naval Group is fully committed to support the operational objectives of the Royal Netherlands Navy within the frame of the Belgian-Dutch Mine Countermeasures (MCM) capability replacement program. This innovative solution will fulfil the operational needs of the Navy. The OT&E contract opens new opportunities to further strengthen our existing cooperation”, declared Eric Perrot, Naval Group Program Director.
“DMO and the Royal Netherlands Navy are ready to start exploring all new possibilities that the stand-off concept for counter mine operations will offer. With the first delivery this spring, we can start learning well ahead of the introduction of the new MCM capability. We are committed to the OT&E program benefitting our cooperation with both our Belgian partners and BNR, in order to improve operational outcome in the future”, said Captain (E) Sander van Luik, Netherlands program lead for rMCM and OT&E at DMO.

The OT&E program of the Royal Netherlands Navy has been created to prepare and test new operational doctrines associated with the rMCM means. The scope of this contract will allow the performance assessment of the rMCM tools, operating the L&R systems, the use of the planning and evaluation software for the deployment of naval drones as well as some of the manning, maintenance and training concepts.

Parma Armory Shooting Center Earns NSSF Five-Star Rating

NEWTOWN, Conn. — The National Shooting Sports Foundation® (NSSF®), the firearm industry trade association, is pleased to announce that it has awarded Parma Armory Shooting Center its Five-Star rating, NSSF’s highest designation for range excellence.

Located in Parma, Ohio, in Cuyahoga County, Parma Armory Shooting Center is on the southwest edge of the greater Cleveland and attracts a diverse range of customers. The facility is known as the home of the “21 Gun Salute Range”—the world’s largest indoor double-deck gun range.

“We are very impressed with the Parma Armory Shooting Center on many levels, which is exactly the reaction customers should have when visiting an NSSF Five-Star facility,” said Zach Snow, NSSF Director, Retail & Range Business Development. “The innovation shown in its physical facility, their dedication to training, and the professionalism of its staff at the sales counter, in the classroom and on the range, all add up to a premiere experience for the customer.”

Parma Armory Shooting Center offers many admirable features under one roof. There is, of course, the 21 Gun Salute Range, which boasts 21 40-foot shooting lanes and digital target control with a wide range of target variation; the intimate 5 Star Gun Range that features five 30-yard lanes; the PASC+V Virtual Gun Range for both basic training (practical) and advanced crime-in-progress training (tactical); and a 3D archery range that allows paper or 3D targets to be shot simultaneously from 5 to 35 yards with compound, traditional or crossbow equipment.

On the retail side, Parma Armory has it all—from firearms to ammunition to accessories. Virtually everything a customer might need is available at the Parma Armory Shooting Center Gun Shop or other independent self-defense specialty shops that occupy the facility. Gunsmithing services are available as well.

The shooting center offers single and family memberships with perks such as a minimum of one free hour of shooting every day for everyone included in the membership plus unlimited hours of shooting whenever a range is available. And Parma Armory Shooting Center will exchange a membership from another range for an equal duration at its facility.




Training and education are big at Parma Armory Shooting Center. A full range of training courses are offered, including CCW classes, NSSF First Shots introduction-to-shooting classes and advanced training, with emphasis on self-defense. Parma Armory proudly notes on its website that “new shooters quickly become intermediate and expert shooters through group and private custom training classes.”

“Being recognized as a Five-Star facility by NSSF affirms the vision we had for Parma Armory Shooting Center to be one of the best ranges in the country,” said Rob Euerle, President. “We have a great staff that share in this honor. Most important, we value our customers and have worked hard to provide them with a facility where they can enjoy their chosen shooting sports comfortably, while improving their ability to defend themselves and their loved ones.”

German Precision Optics Expands Its RangeGuide™ Line


German Precision Optics Expands Its RangeGuide™ Line

RICHMOND, Va. (Feb. 16, 2021) — German Precision Optics (GPO), announces the expansion of its award-winning RangeGuide rangefinding binocular line with the introduction of a new 8×50. Ideal for those seeking less magnification, the 8×50 features exceptional edge-to-edge clarity as well as precise ranging on reflective targets out to nearly 1.75 miles.

Built on a 42” chassis, the 8×50 RangeGuide measures a mere 6.3 inches tall. Even with its small size, it performs big. It not only lives up to its 22.36 twilight factor; it actually can accurately range targets out to 3,062 yards with inclination/declination compensation, all while tipping the scales at only 35 ounces. Crafted with a magnesium frame, this rangefinder is extremely light weight, yet boasts an internal rangefinding system unmatched in the industry.
The compact 8×50 RangeGuide features an eye-safe Class 1 laser for instant readings (0.35-second response time) with true-range angle technology that calculates the proper distance to the target after measuring the angle to the target. The fast scan mode provides three readings per second via its orange OLED display with nine adjustable brightness levels. The RangeGuide even measures ambient temperature in either Fahrenheit or Celsius to help with shot placement on long-range shots. The Class 1 laser will reliably range a tree at 1,093 yards and a deer out to 766 yards. The display provides both the line-of-sight distance as well as the user’s choice of adjusted distance, angle or temperature.
Coupled with the GPObright™ high-transmission lens coatings, the RangeGuide’s double-HD laminated 50mm objective lenses are exceptionally beneficial for transmitting light in the twilight hours. The lenses maximize the sharpness and the resolution of the optical image. The 8×50 offers a wider field of view at 345 feet at 1,000 yards, and more eye relief at 19mm than its higher magnification counterpart. Like the 10×50, this new model features diopter focus adjustments on both left and right sides and utilizes GPO’s premium cut-brass-geared focus-wheel system for a very tight, consistent turning radius without any free-play.
Due to its armor coating, the RangeGuide is water- and weather resistant, making it tough enough to endure the harshest of hunting environments.
“The versatility, compact size and precise optical functions make the 8×50 the ideal rangefinder for hunters looking for something with a lower magnification,” said Mike Jensen, GPO, USA’s owner and CEO.
The new 8×50 RangeGuide binocular will be available Spring 2021 at GPO dealers nationwide or conveniently online at
www.gpo-usa.com with a suggested retail price of $1649.99.

EOTECH® G43/G45 Magnifiers Now Shipping

Pictured above: (left) G43 magnifier, (right) G45 magnifier

Ann Arbor, MI (February 16, 2021) The G43/G45 magnifiers developed by EOTECH® were initially launched to the world at SHOT 2020 and first deliveries were expected to begin in the 2nd quarter. These optics offer vast improvements over the G33 in overall length and eye relief. What wasn’t planned were the three massive hurdles that were dished out in 2020.

First, COVID19’s middle finger to the world forced businesses to go remote, limiting key areas of final development such as product qualification and testing. Also, the pandemic severely disrupted the supply chain process and the ability to receive consistent components. Add to the mix, political and civil unrest, which unfolded during the summer, drove firearm and accessory sales through the roof. As a result, part suppliers struggled to keep up with the demand. As if the dumpster fire wasn’t big enough, L3/Harris provided kerosene in the form of additional production delays and shifts in product focus. Inevitably, L3/Harris pulled development funding altogether to make the company’s year-end bottom line more attractive to their shareholders.

In August 2020, EOTECH was re-born after a well overdue divestiture from big corp. The last five months were spent unscrewing much of the in-place structure and focus. From that, new commitments to product development and customer service became a top priority, and to fix the delayed launch of the magnifiers.

“The new magnifiers are a key component in our product line and provide major benefits to those who use them in tandem with our holographic sights,” said Mark Miller, Product Manager. “It was crucial to get them into production and to our customers but not at the sacrifice of quality and performance. Testing and validation took some time but it ensured the end product was worthy of wearing the EOTECH brand.”

As of February 1, 2021, both G43 and G45 magnifiers have begun shipping with volume ramp-ups to occur in the next few weeks. For more information on the magnifiers and other EOTECH products, please visit www.eotechinc.com.

Headquartered in Ann Arbor, Michigan, EOTECH designs, manufactures and markets electro-optical products, Vudu rifle optics, thermal devices, and night vision systems.

Winchester® Defender®: Stopping the Threat

Winchester® Defender® ammunition is designed and balanced for the highest level of home, family and personal defense performance.

Winchester® Defender®: Stopping the Threat

EAST ALTON, Ill. (February 16, 2021) — Winchester® Defender® ammunition is designed and balanced for the highest level of home, family and
personal defense performance.
New to the line come three new loadings: 5.56mm for rifle, 12 gauge for shotgun and 20 gauge for shotgun.
The new 5.56mm rifle offering is loaded with a 64-grain bonded-protected soft-point bullet built with an extruded copper jacket with an extra-thick base for optimum penetration, maximum retained weight and rapid, controlled expansion — all of which give this bullet the ultimate threat-stopping power.
The new 12- and 20-gauge shotshells are loaded with copper-plated buckshot with 9 pellets of 00 buck in the 12ga and 20 pellets of #3 buck in the 20ga offering. The 12ga offering features a purpose-built buckshot wad that ensures proper pellet stacking for consistent patterns. Loaded to 1145 fps, both loads deliver optimum energy for personal defense situations while offering manageable recoil through defensive shotguns.

Find new Winchester Defender 5.56mm rifle ammunition and 12- and 20-gauge buckshot loads at a retailer or dealer near you.
The label on the Defender box says it all: Stop the Threat®.

Resolve to Do Better at Protecting Your Ears

Make 2021 the year you get serious about protecting your hearing

WESTWOOD, Mass. (February 15, 2021) – It’s a new year. More than ever, this particular turning of the calendar holds the promise of better things and better times to come.

What are you resolving to do differently, better, or more often in the coming year? Will you put in more time on the shooting range? Catch up on the live music events you haven’t been able to attend? Tackle more big projects around the homestead? Reschedule the hunting trip that was canceled last year? Travel to visit friends and loved ones?

Whatever your exciting plans may be, fully enjoying them will require good hearing – both now and in the future. So, consider making 2021 the year you make a commitment to yourself and loved ones to start doing a better job at protecting your hearing.

Hearing loss is largely painless and happens over time as the delicate structures inside our ears are repeatedly injured by loud sounds. The damage is incremental, so most people don’t realize it’s taking place until it’s too late. While continued exposure to dangerous noise can cause hearing loss over time, impulse noises like those produced by a firearm can cause permanent damage instantly. The good news is that such injuries are largely preventable through the consistent use of appropriate and properly fitted hearing protection.

Whether participating in shooting sports, attending concerts, motorsports events, or operating power equipment, wearing properly fitted Howard LeightTM hearing protection products will help protect your hearing while safely enjoying the activities you love.

Foam ear plugs and passive muffs like those from the Howard Leight Leightning Series are great choices for most activities and applications. For shooting sports, consider an electronic earmuff like the popular Howard Leight ImpactTM Sport. Up to 4x amplification means you’ll be able to conduct conversation and hear range commands, while relying on Impact Sport’s internal circuitry to attenuate dangerous sounds over 82dB.

Impact Sport’s performance, comfort and slim, ergonomic design make it a versatile earmuff for almost any environment. What’s more, it’s available in a wide variety of colors and patterns to suit anyone’s preferred application or personal sense of style.

Don’t let gradual hearing loss steal your future enjoyment of the activities you love. Make 2021 and all your future years the best they can be by taking one simple step. Shop Impact Sport now, or visit your favorite Honeywell Howard Leight retailer.

ABOUT HONEYWELL HOWARD LEIGHT

Our high-quality hearing and eye protection help people to more safely enjoy the events and activities they love.

Butler Creek® Expands Featherlight Sling Lineup

Image

190050_Featherlight Single Point_Hero

New Camo and Single-Point Slings Add Featherlight Options for Shooters

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – February 15, 2021 – Butler Creek®, maker of smart, field-proven hunting and shooting accessories, announced today that the company’s Featherlight Sling lineup has been expanded with two new models perfect for today’s hunters and shooters. Now, gun owners can select either a new camo option or a single-point sling option, which extend the Featherlight family of slings to six different models available for purchase.

Butler Creek’s Featherlight Slings have been lauded by sportsmen and women for their lightweight, breathable and comfortable design. Now, hunters and shooters alike can pick up the newly released Featherlight camo sling, as well as a Featherlight Single-Point Sling that’s perfect for AR platforms.

Butler Creek’s traditional Featherlight Sling is now available in Prym1 MP camouflage, Prym1’s most versatile hybrid camo pattern. This particular camo is designed for all-season use, from the whitetail woods to western big game hunts and everything in between.

The new Featherlight Single-Point Sling comes with all the best features of the Featherlight design, including the patent-pending lightweight, breathable and comfortable close cell foam construction, as well as adjustable straps, a large thumb loop and two built-in cartridge holders. Like all Featherlight slings, the new single-point option is standard with cut out slots that help to reduce trapped heat as well as provide a better grip on the user’s shoulder.

In addition, the Single-Point Sling includes a bungee strap for extra shock absorption and quick-release buckles, as well as a HK-style snap hook and push-button swivel connectors. The quick-release buckles make it easy for shooters to quickly detach their rifle from the sling. The 2-inch wide sling is also adjustable from 28 inches to over 33 inches long so it will fit just about any shooter.

The new Butler Creek Featherlight Sling in Prym1 MP camo has an MSRP of $34.95 and the Featherlight Single-Point Sling has an MSRP of $39.95.

Firearm Industry Embraces Real Solutions Over President’s Gun Control Calls

For immediate release | February 15, 2021

NEWTOWN, Conn. – The anniversary of the tragic and senseless murders in Parkland, Fla., three years ago remind us why the firearm industry is committed to Real Solutions. Safer Communities®. The loss of innocent lives because of the unthinkable acts of a criminal defies explanation but deserves our efforts to try to prevent them from occurring again.

President Joe Biden’s call for his gun control agenda is not working to address the shared American goal of reducing criminal misuse of firearms. His demand that Congress ban the modern sporting rifle (MSR), which he knowingly mislabels an “assault rifle” and “weapon of war,” denies the reality that more murders are committed with knives, fists and clubs than all rifles combined. Over 20 million MSRs are in circulation today, used daily for lawful purposes.

President Biden’s call to repeal the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), a law passed with wide bipartisan support, panders to the radical base of his party. Rolling it back would be akin to allowing activist lawyers to sue Ford for the wrongful deaths caused by drunk drivers.

The criminal responsible for the horrors thrust on Parkland, and the nation, must be held accountable for his crimes. Anything less is a whitewash of the failures of local, state and federal authorities to act on any of the 45 instances of warnings, tips and police responses prior to his final terrible crimes.

The firearm industry has been willing to take on this hard work. It has not waited. The firearm industry provides Real Solutions, including partnerships with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and local law enforcement to include:

  • Partnering with 15,000 law enforcement agencies to distribute 40 million firearm safety kits, including locking devices, for safe firearm storage through Project ChildSafe®.
  • Fixing the FBI’s background check system by changing the law in 16 states and in Congress to increase reporting of disqualifying adjudicated mental health records, resulting in a 266 percent increase.
  • Partnering with the ATF to prevent illegal firearm straw purchases and warning it is a crime punishable by 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
  • Improving security at firearm retailers, with ATF, to deter criminals from stealing firearms.
  • Matching ATF reward offers up to $5,000 to bring criminals to justice that steal firearms.
  • Preventing firearm suicides with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and Department of Veterans Affairs.

The firearm industry is committed to the shared goal of reducing and ending criminal misuse of firearms, as well as accidents and suicides. That is the common ground. These are the proven answers to achieve this goal.

EAGLEVILLE, PA, February 11, 2021 – Streamlight® Inc., a leading provider of high-performance lighting and weapon light/laser sighting devices, introduced the TLR-10™, a 1,000-lumen, full-frame weapon-mounted tactical light with an integrated red aiming laser. Lightweight and compact, the light offers ergonomic rear switch options with either a low or high position to match users’ shooting style.

The new TLR-10 laser/light combination features a fast rail clamp for repeatability on a wide range of full-size weapons.

And it fits a wide variety of handguns, making it ideal for first responder and tactical applications.”

CZG – Česká zbrojovka Group SE to acquire Colt

header_logo_dark

Colt_520px

Prague, February 11, 2021 – CZG – Česká zbrojovka Group SE (“CZG” or “the Group”) hereby informs that on 11 February 2021, it signed a definitive agreement to acquire 100% of the outstanding equity interest in Colt Holding Company LLC (“Colt”), the parent company of U.S. firearms manufacturer, Colt’s Manufacturing Company LLC as well as its Canadian subsidiary, Colt Canada Corporation.

Subject to the terms and conditions of the definitive agreement, CZG shall acquire a 100% stake in Colt for upfront cash consideration of $220 million and the issuance of 1,098,620 shares of newly issued CZG common stock. The agreement also provides for potential earnout consideration of up to 1,098,620 shares of newly issued CZG common stock if defined EBITDA thresholds are achieved in years 2021 – 2023.

Commenting on today’s announcement, Lubomír Kovařík, President and Chairman of CZG, said: “This merger is a strategic step for both companies. The acquisition of Colt, an iconic brand and a benchmark for the military, law enforcement and commercial markets globally, fits perfectly in our strategy to become the leader in the firearms manufacturing industry and a key partner for the armed forces. We are proud to include Colt, which has stood shoulder-to-shoulder with the U.S. Army for over 175 years, in our portfolio. We believe in the successful connection of our corporate cultures, the proven track record of the current management team and the complementary nature of the CZ and Colt brands. The combined group will have revenues in excess of USD 500 million and presents a real small arms powerhouse. The experience of CZ and Colt management will further strengthen both brands and ensure CZ and Colt continue to deliver top quality products and solutions to all our customers.”

Dennis Veilleux, President and CEO of Colt, agreed: “We are very pleased with the prospect of such a strategic combination. Having completed a historic turn-around of the operations and financial performance at Colt over the past five years, this important next step with CZG positions the company to take advantage of significant growth opportunities. We are excited to join forces with CZG which will be a powerful combination for both brands and for our customers.

The acquisition is to be financed from the Company’s existing cash resources, including recent IPO proceeds, and from the contemplated bond issuance.

The transaction is subject to regulatory approval but is anticipated to close in the second quarter of 2021.

With this strategic move, CZG will acquire significant production capacity in the United States and Canada and substantially expand its global customer base. Colt is a traditional supplier to global military and law enforcement customers. Among others, Colt is a long-term supplier to the U.S. Army (which relationship dates back over 175 years) and, through its Canadian subsidiary, Colt a designated exclusive supplier of small arms to the Canadian military.

The management of CZG will organize a conference call for media to discuss this topic (more details to be announced in due course). Registrations to the call can be made by sending an email to media@czg.cz.

PRIME has 6.5 Creedmoor – In Stock Ready To Ship

PRIME has 6.5 CREEDMOOR
IN STOCK & READY TO SHIP
Sierra Matchking 140gr.

PRIME 6.5 Creedmoor in Peterson Brass


Check Ammoseek.com for comparison >

PRIME has secured “factory second” projectiles that vary enough in their dimensions that we are seeing 1.1 MOA accuracy out to 500 yards.  We normally do much better than this and so we wanted to let you know.  Based on the bullet to bullet differences in the BC, we are seeing slightly higher than normal vertical spreads to 500 yards and that inconsistency increases the further out you engage.   This ammunition comes loaded in top quality, factory new Peterson brass and is excellent for serious practice, reloading the fireformed brass, and hunting deer-sized game animals at ranges 500 and closer.
In an unprecedented ammunition shortage, it is MUCH better than not having ammunition and it is the least expensive 6.5 Creedmoor offering in the country as you can see from the recent AmmoSeek screenshot provided above.  Despite higher prices for us, we are doing our very best to keep the end cost to you, our customers, as low as possible.

Winchester Introduces New Loads for 6.5 PRC

Winchester continues its legacy on the forefront of long-range hunting and shooting by adding the 6.5 PRC cartridge to its product lineup for 2021.

Winchester Introduces
New Loads for 6.5 PRC

EAST ALTON, Ill. (February 11, 2021) — Winchester continues its legacy on the forefront of long-range hunting and shooting by adding the 6.5 PRC cartridge to its lineup of products for 2021. The 6.5 PRC cartridge continues to grow in popularity with its high-velocity cartridges that deliver relatively minimal recoil.
The first of two new 6.5 PRC offerings includes a 142-grain Nosler® AccuBond® polymer-tipped hunting bullet and is available in the Expedition Big Game Long Range™ lineup. This provides hunters with wind-drilling, ridge-to-ridge accuracy and bonded performance for maximum weight retention and energy transfer.
Winchester will also offer the 6.5 PRC in a 140-grain Match boattail hollow point that puts long-range precision at the shooter’s trigger finger. The high-ballistic coefficient results in low drag and maintains flatter trajectories at a long distance.

Look for new Winchester 6.5 PRC loads in 20-round boxes at a retailer or dealer near you.

Interior Announces Plans to Strengthen LWCF

US Department of the Interior News Release

New Order Revokes Policy Actions That Undermined Bipartisan Conservation Program

WASHINGTON — The Interior Department today took steps to strengthen the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) by rescinding Trump administration policies that significantly undermined the landmark conservation program. Secretarial Order 3396 revokes an order signed on November 9, 2020 (Secretarial Order 3388) that unilaterally imposed new restrictions to inhibit the availability of LWCF funding for federal land and water acquisitions.
“The Land and Water Conservation Fund has been crucial to protecting public lands, conserving wildlife habitats and improving access to outdoor recreation. Interior’s actions today affirm our support for one of America’s most successful and popular conservation programs,” said Shannon A. Estenoz, Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary – Fish and Wildlife and Parks. “We look forward to further strengthening this successful program to ensure that all communities – from hikers and sportsmen to urban and underserved communities – have access to nature and the great outdoors.”
In addition to rescinding the November 2020 Bernhardt policy, Secretarial Order 3396 instructs the National Park Service to revise the Land and Water Conservation Fund Assistance Manual to remove the restrictive policies implemented in the previous order, and to reinstate pre-existing implementation of the LWCF state assistance program and Outdoor Recreation Legacy Partnership (ORLP) program. The ORLP program is the only LWCF competitive grant program dedicated to addressing the recreational gap in underserved urban areas.
Since its inception in 1965, the LWCF has funded $4 billion worth of projects in every county in the country. Last year, Congress permanently funded the LWCF at $900 million per year with wide bipartisan support. At no cost to taxpayers, the LWCF
supports increased public access to and protection for federal public lands and waters – including national parks, forests, wildlife refuges, and recreation areas – and provides matching grants to state and tribal governments for the acquisition and development of public parks and other outdoor recreation sites.

Interior Announces Series of Tribal Consultations in Recognition of the Importance of Nation-to-Nation Relationship

US Department of the Interior News Release


WASHINGTON – The Department of the Interior announced today that it will host initial consultations with Tribal leaders next month. In addition to honoring and strengthening the nation-to-nation relationship, these steps will help ensure that future White House and Interior efforts at addressing the four converging crises of our time – COVID-19, economic security, racial justice and climate change – are inclusive of Tribal Nations’ priorities and recommendations.

Today’s actions open a new chapter with Tribal governments following President Biden’s January 26 memorandum, which noted that respect for Tribal sovereignty and self-governance, fulfilling Federal trust and treaty responsibilities to Tribal Nations, and regular, meaningful and robust consultation with Tribal officials are of the utmost priority for the Administration. Interior has invited federal agencies to send representatives to listen to the sessions to inform how they might facilitate their own agency-specific consultations.

“Honoring our nation-to-nation relationship with Tribes and upholding the trust and treaty responsibilities to them are paramount to fulfilling Interior’s mission. Meaningful consultations ensure we center Tribal voices as we address the health, economic, racial justice and climate crises — all of which disproportionately impact American Indian and Alaska Natives,” said Ann Marie Bledsoe Downes, Interior’s designated Tribal Governance Officer and Deputy Solicitor for Indian Affairs.

Interior will notify all federally recognized Tribes of the consultation series today, and shared additional guidance to kickstart and facilitate a productive, meaningful process. Interior will hold four Tribal consultation sessions in March to hear Tribal leaders’ suggestions for federal policy and departmental actions, including identifying additional best practices to improve consultation and fortify Interior’s relationship with Tribal governments. The sessions will be conducted by Indian Affairs’ Office of Regulatory Affairs and Collaborative Action via teleconference with Tribes in each of the Bureau of Indian Affairs’ 12 regions:

  • Monday, March 8 (2:00-5:00 p.m. ET): Great Plains, Midwest and Rocky Mountain Regions
  • Wednesday, March 10 (10:00 a.m.-1 p.m. ET): Eastern, Eastern Oklahoma and Southern Plains Regions
  • Wednesday, March 10 (2:00-5:00 p.m. ET): Navajo, Southwest and Western Regions
  • Friday, March 12 (2:00-5:00 p.m. ET): Alaska, Northwest and Pacific Regions

The deadline for written comments on the consultation series is 12 p.m. ET on March 19, 2021. Comments can be submitted at consultation@bia.gov.

Service Goes Beyond the Job

GALLS® Security Officer, Zack Tyra, draws on his First Responder experience while assisting victims of a weather-related car accident.

(L to R): Zach Tyra, GALLS Security Officer, Mike Fadden, CEO GALLS, Ernie Evans GALLS Head of Security.

Lexington, Ken. (February 2021) – Just another blustery day in the foothills of Lexington, Kentucky. Linda P. (named changed to protect identity) was winding her way home on a two-lane country road when it began to sleet, then snow. Anxious to get home before the roads became impassable, she gripped the steering wheel and continued slowly down the treacherous road. Ahead, another car seemed to be coming into her lane. She quickly realized the occupants in the other car were unable to control the car’s slide in her direction and finding her tires sliding on the icy road, she braced for impact.

The head-on collision forced both cars off the road. As Linda took a quick inventory of herself, she wasn’t sure of any injuries and attempted to use her cell phone to call for help. Where Linda was, cell phone reception was spotty, if at all. Her driver’s door was jammed, the snow kept falling and she began to fear that help may be a long time coming on this isolated road.

Zach Tyra, the new Security Officer at GALLS® headquarters in Lexington, had just finished his shift at 3 p.m. when he decided, despite the cold rain coming down, that a leisurely drive home in his SUV on the back roads would be a nice change after a busy work week. While listening to his favorite radio station, Zach meandered along the empty back roads as the weather became more inclement. As he neared his home stretch, Zach saw what he thought was a car that had slid off the road. As he neared the snow-covered vehicle, he quickly realized it was two vehicles involved in an accident.

Instantly, Zach’s years of training as a First Responder and Law Enforcement Officer kicked in. He pulled to the side of the road and grabbed his “Blow Out Kit” (first aid bag). Zach approached Linda’s vehicle and seeing her, attempted to open the driver’s side door. It had jammed during the collision. Zach accessed the vehicle’s interior through the rear passenger door and asked her if she was all right and if she was hurting anywhere.

Linda breathed a sigh of relief but still felt anxious and uncertain. She let Zach know she was okay but cold and was concerned for the occupants in the other car. Zach took his heavy coat and wrapped her in it while assuring her he would be right back after checking on them. He found the other victims were in better condition and were able to stay warm. Zach’s concern was the lone lady stuck in her car.

Drawing on his previous experience, he knew his first task was to keep her calm until help arrived. Upon returning to Linda’s vehicle, he settled into the back and asked her if she would like to pray with him. They prayed together, and then the small talk filled the chilly car while they waited. Linda talked about her job and her two kids. Zach told her about his life in law enforcement and his new job at GALLS. Zach’s presence helped Linda remain calm during what seemed to her, hours before help arrived.

It wasn’t hours, but even with the delay due to the weather, the First Responders finally arrived. Zach was relieved to see old friends among the emergency personnel and quickly assured Linda she was in the best of hands. As they loaded Linda in the ambulance, Zach, an occasional road angel, said goodbye. Seeing a smile return to her face, he knew his job was done.

Zach placed his first aid bag back in his SUV, waved to his former colleagues, and as he got in his vehicle to finally head home, he remembered a quote he had heard early in his public safety career, “you do what you do, so that others may live.”

“Zach Tyra is a perfect example of the GALLS mission,” Mike Fadden, CEO of GALLS, said. “We are proud to serve our public safety professionals and the communities we live and work in. Zach responded as his former first responder training dictated, and as a proud member of the GALLS team, we salute him.”
