Federal and Remington Ammunition Become VIP Sponsor of SHOT Show All-Star Jam Concert

December 5, 2022

Federal and Remington Ammunition Become VIP Sponsor of SHOT Show All-Star Jam Concert

LAS VEGAS — NSSF®, The Firearm Industry Trade Association, is thrilled to announce that Federal and Remington Ammunition, along with sister brands CCI, Hevi-Shot and Speer, have signed on as a VIP sponsor of the 2023 SHOT Show’s All-Star Jam—a free, private concert for all SHOT Show® attendees featuring some of the most notable names in rock and country music.

Presented by Outdoor Sportsman Group—with VIP Sponsors Federal, Remington and Glock—the concert will feature Lynyrd Skynyrd’s Johnny Van Zant, Montgomery Gentry’s Eddie Montgomery and a special surprise guest to be named. It will take place Jan. 18 outside Caesars Forum, next to the SHOT Show’s Great Outdoors Plaza.

“These ammo brands are some of the most recognizable in our industry and are a huge part of the SHOT Show each year,” said Chris Dolnack, NSSF Senior Vice President and Chief Customer Officer. “We can’t thank them enough for their outstanding support of NSSF and the SHOT Show, and for stepping up to support this awesome new All-Star Jam experience for all in the industry to enjoy.”

Federal and Remington Ammunition President Jason Vanderbrink states, “The SHOT Show is a critical event for NSSF and the vitality of our industry. It’s the perfect place to celebrate our freedoms, product innovation and our industry’s iconic American brands. We’re proud to support this new SHOT After Dark series as another way to bring companies, customers and leaders in our industry together to strengthen our businesses.”

Part of a new series of events called “SHOT After Dark,” the concert will be on Wednesday evening right after show hours. Tuesday evening will feature an Industry Welcome Reception happy hour, and a Networking Reception will be held on Thursday evening, both being held out on the Caesars Plaza.

For three decades, Johnny Van Zant has carried on the legacy of his late brother, Ronnie Van Zant, as the lead singer of legendary rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd and one half of duo Van Zant alongside his brother, Donnie Van Zant of .38 Special.

Eddie Montgomery of Montgomery Gentry recently released “Outskirts,” a seven-song EP. With 20-plus charted singles, the Kentucky native has earned CMA, ACM and GRAMMY awards and nominations with undeniable blue-collar anthems.

More details, and the name of the All-Star Jam surprise guest, will be shared in the coming days.

To register for the 2023 SHOT Show, visit shotshow.org.

Opportunities to highlight your brand and help support this event are limited. For more details, contact Chris Tatulli at ctatulli@nssf.org.

Henry Donates $50,000 to First Responders Children’s Foundation

Henry Repeating Arms Donates $50,000 to First Responders Children’s Foundation

Supporting the children and families of first responders who have been killed or injured in the line of duty

Today, Henry Repeating Arms, one of America’s leading firearms manufacturers, announced a donation of $50,000 to First Responders Children’s Foundation (FRCF).

FRCF was founded in 2001 in the immediate aftermath of 9/11 for the 800 surviving children who lost a first responder parent on that tragic day.  Since then, FRCF has grown to be a national non-profit focusing on four key program areas: scholarships for children of first responders injured or killed in the line of duty; Financial Assistance Grants/Line of Duty Death Bereavement Support; a Mental Health Resiliency Program; and First Responder Community Engagement.

“The primary focus of our Guns for Great Causes program has always been about children, which is why we are extremely proud to help support such an esteemed and worthwhile organization,” said Henry Repeating Arms CEO and Founder Anthony Imperato. “No one does a better job of meeting the real financial needs and taking care of the children and families of our fallen heroes.” The donation is part of a $1 million pledge made to celebrate the company’s 25th anniversary through a charitable branch called Guns for Great Causes.

“FRCF is deeply grateful to Anthony Imperato and Henry Repeating Arms for their generous commitment to supporting first responders and their children. This donation will help to support our mental health resiliency program, which provides confidential, trauma-informed counseling at no cost to children of first responders,” said FRCF President and CEO Jillian Crane. “Henry is an iconic American family-owned business supporting the first responder community since day one. This partnership will make a real difference in the lives of first responder families.”
For the past twenty-five years, Henry’s Guns for Great Causes has helped a wide variety of beneficiaries, including individual families of sick children going through medical treatments, children’s hospitals, military veteran organizations, law enforcement and first responder groups, and wildlife and habitat conservation agencies.

GA-ASI Demonstrates Network Relay Using Laser Communications

clip_image002

GA-ASI DEMONSTRATES NETWORK RELAY USING LASER COMMUNICATIONS

SAN DIEGO – 01 December 2022 – General Atomics Aeronautical Systems (GA-ASI) completed a fully-networked demonstration using multiple Laser Communication terminals. The network included ground, mobile and airborne terminals. During the demonstration, a live video and audio feed of operators at each terminal was shared in the networked communication display.

Lasercomm is in demand for military applications because of its inherent Low Probability of Intercept/Low Probability of Detection (LPI/LPD) and anti-jam characteristics, and its ability to support much higher data rates (greater than 1 Gigabit per second) than traditional Radio Frequency (RF) systems.

            “This fully networked lasercomm demonstration is a major milestone for GA-ASI and a significant achievement for the lasercomm community as it featured the extended use of this technology beyond point-to-point communications,” said GA-ASI Vice President of Mission Payloads and Exploitation, Satish Krishnan. “The successful execution of this demonstration shows how lasercomm can be utilized in an operational theater to truly provide LPI/LPD high-capacity comms for the warfighter.”

The demonstration took place at Naval Information Warfare Center (NIWC) Atlantic located in Charleston, S.C., on Nov. 3, 2022, as part of a GA-ASI-funded test to highlight extended multi-point networking communications using lasercomm. During the demonstration, which was facilitated by organizers of NIWC Atlantic’s optical communications-focused Advanced Naval Technology Exercise (ANTX), the team maintained lasercomm links at 1 Gigabit per second (Gbps) and exchanged high quality video and voice data.

GA-ASI has developed a family of optical communication capabilities and is poised to play an important role in transitioning these capabilities to users in a variety of domains, from air to sea. Laser communications will enable GA-ASI’s Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) to perform secure multi-domain communications to airborne, maritime, and ground users, as well as with future satellites.

This capability can be applied as a podded or fully integrated solution to GA-ASI’s full line of unmanned aircraft, including MQ-9B SkyGuardian®/SeaGuardian®, MQ-9A Reaper and MQ-1C Gray Eagle 25M.

About GA-ASI

General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, Inc. (GA-ASI), an affiliate of General Atomics, is a leading designer and manufacturer of proven, reliable Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) systems, radars, and electro-optic and related mission systems, including the Predator® RPA series and the Lynx® Multi-mode Radar. With more than seven million flight hours, GA-ASI provides long-endurance, mission-capable aircraft with integrated sensor and data link systems required to deliver persistent flight that enables situational awareness and rapid strike. The company also produces a variety of ground control stations and sensor control/image analysis software, offers pilot training and support services, and develops meta-material antennas.

NSSF Challenges Unconstitutional Oregon Measure 114

December 1, 2022

NSSF Challenges Unconstitutional Oregon Measure 114

WASHINGTON, D.C. — NSSF®, The Firearm Industry Trade Association, filed a challenge to Oregon’s Measure 114, the gun control ballot initiative that was narrowly approved by voters. NSSF is filing the challenge along with Mazama Sporting Goods, the Oregon State Shooting Association and two individual gun owners.

The measure, called “Changes to Firearm Ownership and Purchase Requirements Initiative,” threatens to halt the lawful sale of firearms in Oregon, which would deny the most basic Constitutional right to keep and bear arms. That right begins with the ability for lawful purchasers to obtain a firearm through the legal sale from a licensed firearm retailer. Oregon’s “permit-to-purchase” scheme is antithetical to the Second Amendment.

“Oregon’s Measure 114 is blatantly unconstitutional,” said Lawrence G. Keane, NSSF’s Senior Vice President and General Counsel. “The right to keep and bear arms begins with the ability of law-abiding citizens to be able to obtain a firearm through a lawful purchase at a firearm retailer. Oregon has created an impossible-to-navigate labyrinth that will achieve nothing except to deny Second Amendment rights to its citizens. The measure is an affront to civil liberties which belong to People, not to the state to grant on impossible and subjective criteria.”

Oregon’s Measure 114 requires lawful firearm purchasers to obtain a permit-to-purchase, which entails non-existent and impossible-to-achieve criteria. Purchasers must complete a “firearm training course” to satisfy strict new criteria. However, the state provides no such training course and no existing course meets the new criteria. Purchasers would be required to submit fingerprints and photos to the local sheriff, police chief or Oregon State Police before requesting that law enforcement authority conduct a criminal background check. Measure 114 sets no requirement or timeframe in which law enforcement must complete this check, who could endlessly delay permits. Measure 114 further allows for roadblocks by authorizing law enforcement to request any additional information determined necessary.

That discretion to demand any additional information is in defiance of the U.S. Supreme Court’s Bruen decision.

Additionally, the Measure’s ban on magazines with a capacity exceeding 10 rounds would turn law-abiding citizens into criminals overnight, subjecting those who own standard magazines to unconstitutional confiscation schemes and imprisonment for up to 364 days and fines exceeding $6,000. Americans own more than 115 million magazines, making these clearly commonly-owned and commonly-used and protected by the Second Amendment.

Oregon’s Measure 114 is being rushed into an effective date of compliance without the requisite resources necessary to sustain this permitting process. That means on Dec. 8, no one in Oregon will be able to lawfully purchase a firearm in Oregon.

NSSF is grateful to support from Oregon’s Leupold & Stevens, Inc., and Radian Weapons.

GA-ASI Flies Autonomous Collaboration Using Avenger UAS

clip_image002


GA-ASI FLIES AUTONOMOUS COLLABORATION USING AVENGER® UAS

Demonstration Shows Maturing CCA Ecosystem

SAN DIEGO – 30 November 2022 – On Nov. 17, General Atomics Aeronautical Systems (GA-ASI) paired a company-owned MQ-20 Avenger® Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) with a Sabreliner, operated by Lockheed Martin and acting as a surrogate fighter, and two F-5 Advanced Tigers (AT) from Tactical Air Support configured with internal TacIRST sensors, to perform multi-platform infrared sensing. During this event, all aircraft performed coordinated maneuvers to sense relevant airborne targets in the infrared spectrum. The MQ-20 and Sabreliner were digitally connected over a Tactical Targeting Network Technology (TTNT) mesh network to share sensing observations. In addition to the live-flight aircraft, five digital twins of the MQ-20 were integrated to autonomously fly a Live, Virtual, Constructive (LVC) collaborative combat mission.

All live aircraft had operational next-generation Tactical Infrared Search and Track (TacIRST™) sensors during the test to provide Air-to-Air Moving Target Tracking. These live tracks were provided by Lockheed Martin’s TacIRST sensor and was processed on a General Dynamics Mission Systems’ EMC2 Multi-Function Processor (MFP), commonly referred to as “the Einstein Box.” Using this software-defined architecture, the flight demonstrated crewed and uncrewed teaming between the MQ-20s, Sabreliner and manned F-5 AT tactical fighters.

“This test flight has broken new ground for us,” said GA-ASI Senior Director of Advanced Programs Michael Atwood. “It demonstrated effective collaboration between four established defense prime contractors flying with advanced sensing, crewed and uncrewed teaming, and advanced airborne high-performance computing to meet challenging air dominance scenarios. This is a clear demonstration of our rapidly maturing Autonomous Collaborative Platform (ACP) mission system suite and moves us one step closer to providing this revolutionary capability to the warfighter.”

“Flying four platforms with TacIRST installed was a major milestone for Lockheed Martin,” stated Matthew Merluzzi, Sr. Program Manager at Lockheed Martin. “By leveraging open mission systems, our team has demonstrated that common platform integration is possible across a variety of vehicles bringing advanced capabilities to our warfighters quicker and more affordably.”

To accomplish the multi-company integration, the MQ-20 team used a government-furnished CODE autonomy engine and the government-standard Open Mission Systems (OMS) messaging protocol to enable communication between the autonomy core and TacIRST. In addition, GA-ASI used General Dynamics’ EMC2, an open architecture MFP with multi-level security infrastructure to run the autonomy architecture, demonstrating the ability to bring high-performance computing (HPC) resources to ACPs to perform quickly tailorable mission sets depending on the operational environment. 

This is another in an ongoing series of autonomous flights performed using internal research and development (IRAD) funding to prove out important concepts for ACPs.

SUCCESSFUL AWE TRIAL PROVES RAFAEL’s FOOTPRINT SYSTEM NAVIGATION CAPABILITIES FOR GPS-DENIED ENVIRONMENTS

78045_O

SUCCESSFUL AWE TRIAL PROVES RAFAEL’s FOOTPRINT SYSTEM NAVIGATION CAPABILITIES FOR GPS-DENIED ENVIRONMENTS

The British Army has conducted tests with RAFAEL’s FOOTPRINT navigation system for ground forces.

Portsmouth, UK, November 2022: as part of the Army Warfighting Experiment (AWE), ground troops of the British Army conducted a set of rigorous trials with the FOOTPRINT system through varying scenarios. The system proved its ability to allow soldiers to navigate and self-position in situations where they are unable to rely on traditional GPS capabilities.

As part of AWE and under The Defense Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL) and the Future Capability Group, the British soldiers tested RAFAEL’s FOOTPRINT system in scenarios simulating modern mission requirements, including between and inside buildings, down into basements as well as in open areas. As part of the trial, FOOTPRINT was connected to the CIV-TAK (Civilian Team Awareness Kit) system which allows the soldiers to stand in a variety of sites and conduct operational tasks whilst activated. As a result of the successful testing, commanders were able to obtain an accurate picture of the exact location of each and every troop with a detailed understanding of the operational situation.

Shmuel Olansky, Head of Multi-Domain Warfare Directorate at RAFAEL:

“We are proud to see how UK soldiers could use FOOTPRINT to complete their mission and demonstrate precisely how this solution provides a crucial edge in the modern battlespace. FOOTPRINT will allow higher command to better direct its troops and help prevent cases of friendly fire in a complex space. We thank the British Army for hosting our delegation and demonstrating our system’s practical applications.”

Renowned SASS World Champion and SASS National Champion “Evil Roy” Set to “Ride Off into the Sunset”

Along with champion shooter Gene “Evil Roy” Pearcey’s upcoming retirement, Cimarron will retire the Evil Roy pistols. Fans of the classic peacemaker-style revolver will see a new Cimarron Firearms version of the popular pistol soon on shelves.

Renowned SASS World Champion and SASS National Champion “Evil Roy” Set to “Ride Off into the Sunset”

Along with champion shooter Gene “Evil Roy” Pearcey’s upcoming retirement, Cimarron Firearms will retire the Evil Roy competition single-action pistols. Fans of the classic peacemaker-style revolver will see a new Cimarron Firearms version of the popular pistol soon on shelves.

Fredericksburg, Texas (November 2022)Cimarron Firearms, makers of quality replicas of Old West firearms, congratulate long-time partner and SASS World and National Champion shooter, Gene “Evil Roy” Pearcey, on his retirement from cowboy action shooting competition. Cimarron Firearms Evil Roy classic peacemaker-style, single-action revolver will also ride off into the sunset.

Although Gene Pearcey came to the sport later than most competitors, age and experience did not deter him. Vigilantly practicing every day, sometimes shooting over 300 rounds a day, Gene not only made a name for himself in the sport of cowboy action shooting, but became an elite member of the SASS Hall of Fame. Taking his moniker “Evil Roy” from the 1970’s comic TV series Evil Roy Slade, starring actor John Astin as the infamous “meanest villain the West has known,” Gene went on to compete and take home multiple awards. He continues to express his love of the sport and share his knowledge and skills through training aspiring cowboy action shooters across the country.

Cimarron’s Evil Roy Model “P” revolver was designed to incorporate competition-style features such as a finely tuned US action with a competition hammer and trigger/bolt springs that are lighter, smoother, and offer a crisp, no-creep trigger pull. Improved internal parts enhance reliability, which is especially important to competition shooters like Gene. Other features include a wide square notch rear and constant width front sight and hand-checkered European walnut slim grips. The pistol named for Single Action Shooting Society (SASS) World Champion and SASS National Champion shooter, Gene “Evil Roy” Pearcey, will be officially retired after the last shipment hits retailers. Gene often stated that he put through at least 100,000 rounds through his Evil Roy revolvers with no issues.

Mike Harvey, president and founder of Cimarron Firearms spent some time during a YouTube BOOM! With Mike Harvey video, explaining the history of the Evil Roy Model P revolver down to the last serial number ER9999 ending the series because the antique serial number marking machine could not go beyond 6 digits. “If you’ve got an Evil Roy pistol, you better hang on to it because its going to be a collector’s item.”

“Fans of the popular Evil Roy competition Model P, need not worry,” Bryce Wayt, Vice President of Operations & Media for Cimarron Firearms, said. “We are in the process of updating this pistol and introducing it back into the lineup under the Cimarron Firearms name.”

“NSSF is extremely grateful for this generous donation by Smith & Wesson,” said Joe Bartozzi, NSSF President and CEO and Chairman of the Project ChildSafe Foundation. “This along with other donations during the holidays will help NSSF build upon the important work of Project ChildSafe to help reduce firearm accidents, thefts and misuse, including suicide.”

The donation will provide thousands of new gun locks and safety education materials to the Project ChildSafe program. These locks and materials are distributed free to the public through partnerships with law enforcement agencies, hunter education classes, youth programs, community organizations and other partners across the country.

“Project ChildSafe is a safety and education initiative that all gun owners and our industry should continue to embrace,” Smith & Wesson President and CEO Mark Smith said. “Project ChildSafe has developed countless educational resources all gun owners should consult, and Smith & Wesson is proud to include such a worthy program in our Week of Giving celebration and provide $5,000 to NSSF to help promote and fund Project ChildSafe.”

Smith & Wesson’s Week of Giving is an online fundraising campaign that ran from November 24 through November 29 and sought to highlight the important work of Project ChildSafe alongside CureJM and BattleBuddy3-Gun.

Reloading Made Easy with the Hornady Lock-N-Load® Classic™ Kit

Reloading Made Easy with the Hornady Lock-N-Load® Classic™ Kit

Grand Island, NE (November 30, 2022) – Whether a reloading novice or a seasoned veteran who values simplicity and function, Hornady’s Lock-N-Load® Classic™ will get shooters ready to rock the range. Reloading cartridges can save money and, better yet, let reloaders optimize accuracy by precisely creating the load the rifle will shoot the best.

The simple, effective engineering in this single-stage press gives reloaders complete control, dependably enabling the precision and consistency demanded. The uniquely angled, solid cast frame is designed to assure perfect die and shell holder alignment and allow reloaders to see and access the cartridge throughout the process. The frame is guaranteed never to break or fail.

The Lock-N-Load® Quick-Change Bushing System lets reloaders swap out dies in seconds, enabling quick and easy caliber changes when reloading cartridges for multiple firearms. Set the die and tighten the Sure-Loc™ ring onto the Lock-N-Load® bushing with a single twist. The six locking lugs on the die and press bushings hold dies in stable, secure alignment. A rubber O-ring on the die bushings gives reloaders a better feel when the die is inserted, holding it tight against the locking lugs to prevent accidental loosening. To change calibers, simply twist the die counterclockwise, remove it and insert the next preset Lock-N-Load® die and bushing. Because they remain set in their Lock-N-Load® bushings, dies will remain exactly as they were set.

Leverage, consistently applied, ensures proper bullet and primer seating. The Lock-N-Load Classic’s solid steel arm rotates on a steel pin running completely through the frame. The long arm gets a boost from the Power-Pac Linkage, multiplying the leverage and reducing operator fatigue. The ergonomic, large, ball-style grip also reduces effort while improving comfort.

Removing and replacing spent primers is a breeze, much easier than the process associated with old-style primer arms. The spent primer ejects at the top of the stroke. Then add a new primer to the Positive Priming System™, which self-aligns to feed, and insert the primer at the bottom of the stroke where leverage is best. The self-aligning primer arm allows for easy manual primer insertion without raising the handle. All the work is done at the bottom of the stroke. Small and large punches are included.

A valuable optional item (sold separately) is Hornady’s Automatic Primer Feed, which pairs large or small primer tubes with the Positive Priming System, resulting in a “hands-off” process with no more stiff-fingered fumbling with primers.

The Lock-N-Load® Classic™ Kit includes:

  • · Lock-N-Load® Classic™
  • · Lock-N-Load® Powder Measure
  • · Lock-N-Load® Die Bushings (3)
  • · Positive Priming™ System
  • · Universal Reloading Block
  • · Powder Trickler
  • · One Shot® Case Lube
  • · Reloading Handbook
  • · Digital Scale
  • · Primer Catcher
  • · Handheld Priming Tool
  • · Chamfer & Deburr Tool
  • · Powder Funnel

Founded in 1949, Hornady® Manufacturing Company is a family-owned business headquartered in Grand Island, Nebraska. Proudly manufacturing products that are made in the USA, Hornady® Manufacturing is a world leader in bullet, ammunition, reloading tool, accessory and security product design and manufacturing.

NSSF and Project ChildSafe Tell a Teen’s Suicide Prevention Story

November 30, 2022

NSSF and Project ChildSafe

Tell a Teen’s Suicide Prevention Story

WASHINGTON, D.C. — NSSF® — The Firearm Industry Trade Association — and Project ChildSafe® today released a new video, “A Teen’s Suicide Prevention Story,” telling the real-life story of a teenager who took the right steps, including using a Project ChildSafe gun lock, to help prevent his at-risk girlfriend from attempting suicide.

Watch the video

The video, housed on Project ChildSafe’s website and NSSF’s YouTube page, uses an actor portrayal of a teenager whose actions, including confiding in a trusted adult and securely storing guns in the home, helped protect his girlfriend from self-harm. Project ChildSafe is NSSF’s nationwide program that promotes responsible storage of firearms to help prevent firearm-related accidents, thefts and suicide.

“We were so moved when we heard this story and knew we had to find a way to retell it to demonstrate the importance of deterring access to firearms and other lethal means when someone is struggling with their mental health,” said Joe Bartozzi, NSSF’s President and CEO and Chairman of the Project ChildSafe Foundation. “It’s gratifying to hear that this successful outcome was possible as a result of a program that we are passionate about. We hope it inspires others to remember that suicide can be prevented—and the importance of practicing secure firearm storage in the home.”

The video will serve as the centerpiece of a national digital advertising campaign launching in November targeted specifically to likely gun owners who are parents of teens, as well as “teen-adjacent adults” such as school mental health counselors, youth workers and teachers. The campaign will promote Project ChildSafe resources on how to talk to teens about mental health, make homes safer for those who may be at risk and help reduce the risk of suicide among teens. These resources include:

Project ChildSafe also has resources designed specifically for teens to help them recognize suicide warning signs in their friends, take steps to start a conversation and get support from trusted adults who can help.

“It’s more important than ever to ensure that parents know how to talk to teens about mental health and preventing access to potentially lethal means in their homes, including firearms. These two steps combined can help save lives,” said Bartozzi.

NSSF urges anyone who is struggling with thoughts of suicide, or knows someone who may be, to dial 988 to reach the National Suicide and Crisis lifeline.

The Wheelgun Hunter and the Colt Anaconda: A Match Made in Hunting Heaven

The Wheelgun Hunter and the Colt Anaconda: A Match Made in Hunting Heaven

ANACONDA-SP6TRS-lifestyle-product-11172020-41.jpg

ANACONDA-SP8TRS-flat-lay-left 1.jpg

WEST HARTFORD, CONN. (November 29, 2022) – Colt Manufacturing’s most coveted hunting revolver is the Anaconda, chambered in the truly awesome .44 Rem Mag.

Today’s Anaconda is a hunter’s dream and has been entirely re-designed to utilize an oversized Colt Python action. This double-action revolver features a Linear Leaf Spring Action for a non-stacking, smooth-as-glass trigger pull, and it boasts a solid stainless-steel frame for strength and durability.

ANACONDA-SP6TRS-flat-lay-left.jpg

Available with either a six- or eight-inch barrel, the Anaconda sports recoil-absorbing Hogue grips and adjustable, interchangeable sights. It is also drilled and tapped for mounting an optic. The Anaconda is a versatile hunter, easy to carry and capable of great accuracy and ethical harvests.

Part of the challenge of handgun hunting with an Anaconda is the work a hunter will do to become a better stalker, getting closer to game when needed. Yet the hand gunner also needs to be very patient, willing to hold stone still while that buck of a lifetime decides if he’s going to approach or not.

Hunting with a wheelgun is a game-changer for the hunter, and a revolver like the Colt Anaconda can make it all happen. At the range and in the field, the Colt Anaconda in .44 Mag will get the job done–and then some.

COLT. STILL MAKING HISTORY.

Colt’s Manufacturing Company LLC (www.colt.com) is among the world’s leading designers, developers and manufacturers of firearms. Founded by Samuel Colt in 1836, Colt’s Manufacturing has supplied civilian, military and law enforcement customers in the United States and abroad for over 185 years.
