XS Sights Introduces New Line Extensions

Fort Worth, TX (June 30, 2020) – XS Sights is pleased to offer line extensions for its popular second-generation DXT2 Night Sights and a non-tritium rear option in the new DXW2 Night Sights for Glock, SIG SAUER, Smith & Wesson and other select pistol models.  The front sights of all new products feature tritium in the center surrounded by XS’s photoluminescent Glow Dot technology.

For a full list of specific models and part numbers, visit xssights.com/LineExtensions.

XS Line Extensions - DXT2XS Line Extensions - DXW2


Overview of Benefits

Tritium Rear vs. Non-Tritium rear:

The DXT2 Night Sights have tritium in the rear, which provides the brightest indexing point for sight alignment in low light. The DXW2 Night Sights have a white-stripe rear, which reflects light to offer an excellent, bright-light sight picture and provides more affordability for the set.

Color Options:

The Big Dot variants are offered in Optic Yellow or Optic Orange while the Standard Dots come in green. All front sights feature tritium surrounded by XS’s photoluminescent Glow Dot technology.

Optic Yellow:

Optic Yellow is the best option for low light and has the brightest glow intensity. Primarily based on the white light spectrum, Optic Yellow is very reflective and will excite the dot’s photoluminescent properties faster than any other color. The increased surface area of the convex dot increases light absorption, intensifying the charge of the dot’s glow properties, making this a great low-light choice.

Optic Orange:

Optic Orange is based primarily on yellow with a hint of red to ensure visibility in low light when uncharged. The increased surface area of the convex dot increases light absorption, intensifying the charge of the glow properties of the dot. Orange is the preferred bright-light choice of many XS customers.

Green:

Green is our bridge color for the Standard Dot sights. It glows well in low light and offers vibrant, bright-light sight indexing. This color performs well on the smaller-sized Standard Dot and still manages to focus the shooter’s attention, in any light.

While there are scientific reasons these specific colors excel in certain light, many times, the choice comes down to personal preference and which color an individual’s eye sees best.

Big Dot:

Sized at .188″ and positioned for defensive shooters, our Big Dot front sights are an excellent option for EDC guns or shooters who have vision difficulty and struggle to see their sights. The Big Dot’s provide a distinctive front that offers a great glow and the biggest front sight on the market.

Standard Dot:

Sized at .144″ and positioned for target shooters, our Standard Dot front sights are an excellent option for target guns or shooters looking for a smaller front sight option.

Suppressor Height Sights:

All XS Red Dot Optics (RDO)/Suppressor-Height sets are lower 1/3 co-witnessed for Glock 9mm MOS pistols equipped with a Trijicon RMR or Holosun 507C. The lower 1/3 co-witness minimizes the amount of space the front sight takes up in the optic’s window. XS’s durability and color options allow for greater flexibility and confidence when using suppressor heights as back-up iron sights for RDO.

Visit xssights.com for a full list of all products and models.

All XS Sights are backed by a 10-year, No Questions Asked Warranty and 30-Day Satisfaction Guarantee.

Eliminate Varmints and Manage the Herd with the New MasterPiece Arms (MPA) Pork Chop Rifle

The newest addition to the MPA BA Hunter Rifle Line, the MPA Pork Chop Rifle is purpose-designed for Varmint Hunters, Ranchers, and Herd Management.

Comer, Ga. (June 2020)MasterPiece Arms (MPA), manufacturers of the MPA BA Rifles and Chassis Systems, has added a fourth rifle to its MPA BA Hunter Rifle line, the MPA Pork Chop Rifle. It’s latest addition to its Hunter Rifle line is a purpose-designed rifle for varmint hunters, ranchers, and herd management purposes. It provides the shooter with the ability to make longer shots with a rifle that can still be comfortably packed into the most extreme terrain. Whether eliminating hogs, pigs, coyotes, armadillos, groundhogs, prairie dogs, or other varmints, in addition to managing the herd, the MPA Pork Chop Rifle will take care of the job. From the lightweight construction to the technologically superior chassis design, the MPA Pork Chop Rifle provides varmint hunters and ranchers an entirely new level of performance and accuracy standard not seen in this segment of the precision hunting market.

Built upon the MPA Hybrid Chassis, the MPA Pork Chop Rifle is customized with its own Cerakote® paint scheme, including a laser engraved hog with the words “Pork Chop” underneath it. The MPA Hybrid Chassis is machined on MPA’s CNC Horizontal Machining Centers to exacting tolerances from 6061 aluminum. The v-bedding system provides additional clearance for glass bedding action and straight section of the barrel. This aluminum frame provides a significant amount of technology to improve the hunter’s experience. This includes the MPA RAT Rail, Adjustable Cheek Riser and Length of Pull (LOP) assembly, Enhance Vertical Grip (EVG) Grip and Thumb Notch, Inclinometer Leveling System, V4 Spigot Mount, and a special Short LOP Buttstock.

The RAT Rail, which is known in the industry as the Arca Swiss Rail, provides significant flexibility on attaching a bipod or tripod along any location of the fore-end of the chassis. Concerning tripod use, this provides the ability for the shooter to attach a tripod directly to the chassis via an Arca Swiss Clamp. This is an extremely rigid setup, much better than a traditional hog saddle or similar clamping devices. It also provides the shooter with the ability to position the bipod from the front section of the chassis on the V4 Spigot Mount to anywhere along the fore-end. For example, if you have to build a hasty, improvised modified prone position on a rock, boulder, tree stump, or another improvised surface, the ability to adjust the location of the bipod gives the hunter a ton of flexibility for an ultra-precise shot.

The Adjustable Cheek Riser and Recoil Plate assembly give the hunter the ability to fine-tune a perfect fit to his or her body type, LOP, and preferred shooting configuration. The Short LOP Buttstock comes in handy when shooting off a tripod, or when using a Night Vision Primary optic that may need a shortened eye relief for proper target acquisition. The LOP range on this buttstock is 11.75 to 13.25.” MPA can make this longer if requested during the time of order. The inclinometer leveling system will ensure the rifle is not canted when taking the shot and provides no axis errors when used properly.

MPA can fine-tune the build to the hunter or rancher’s specific application. From caliber selection, chamber dimensions, barrel length, contour, twist rate, and chassis finishing, MPA can design a rifle to meet any user’s long-range precision varmint hunting or herd management needs.

Team SIG Captain Max Michel Earns Two Championship Titles at the 2020 Texas State Open Championship

NEWINGTON, N.H., (June 30, 2020) – SIG SAUER, Inc. congratulates Team SIG Captain and professional shooter Max Michel for his dual championship titles as the “Carry Optics” and “Overall” Champion at the 2020 Texas State Open Championship in Rosenberg, Texas, June 26-27, 2020.

“It’s great to see Max take the Carry Optics title at this year’s Texas State Open Championship.  Carry Optics is Max’s specialty and he has worked hand in hand with the product management team at SIG SAUER Electro-Optics to develop the ROMEO3MAX red dot sight to elevate his already world-class capabilities, and make the ROMEO3MAX the premier competition sight,” said Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, Commercial Sales.  “However, the icing on the cake in this competition was having Max earn the Overall Championship title.  Max competed with his factory P320 XFIVE LEGION alongside PCC’s and race guns to take this Overall title, which really speaks to Max’s impressive skill as a professional shooter and dedication to his training as an elite athlete.”

To take his “Carry Optics” and “Overall” Champion titles at the 2020 Texas State Open Championship Max competed against 157 competitors through eleven stages.  For competition Max used his P320 XFIVE LEGION with a ROMEO3MAX red dot sight and SIG 147 grain Match Elite 9mm Competition Ammunition.

“After months away from competition it was great to get back out and compete.  From the very first shot of the match I hit my rhythm, I was in sync with my equipment, and it felt really good as I worked my way through the stages,” said Michel.  “I was focused, I was seeing things really clearly, and all of my SIG equipment ran perfectly to give me the edge I needed to win these titles for Team SIG.  I am looking forward to building off of this performance and the winning momentum of Team SIG when I return to Texas next month to compete in the Double Tap Championship”

The SIG SAUER Electro-Optics ROMEO3MAX red dot sight developed and used by Team SIG Captain and Professional Shooter Max Michel and SIG 147 grain Match Elite 9mm competition ammunition can be purchased online at sigsauer.com/store or retailers everywhere.

Witness the Clarity of the NEW Exude OD40 Gen II

Exude Brand Products Up to 20% Off

The Exude OD40 Gen II, by Optical Dynamics, is now shipping!

What is Exude Light?
Exude is a direct light illuminator, sometimes called a torch. In other words, light gets projected without being reflected using Direct Projection Technology (DPT). The technology uses a combination of a high-power LED light chip, a rechargeable lithium battery, and a patented Collimated Amplified Lens System (CALS) to generate parallel rays of light that can be focused into a clean, focused beam for true target identification.
While an Exude light can be hand-held or gun mounted, it isn’t anything like a flashlight. In fact, you might call it the “un-flashlight.” Flashlights produce reflected, dirty light that disperses a wide cast of broken up light waves. Unlike Exude, light reflected and distorted can cause predator animals to flare. The pure light generated by Exude doesn’t spook most wildlife because it projects pure, clean light rays. It is so strong that Exude offers much greater target identification effective range that allows you to see tremendous detail even at great distances.
NEW Exude OD40 Gen II Available Now!
The new Exude OD40 Gen II is a micro USB rechargeable predator and search light with three brightness settings. Its 40mm bell houses a set of photonic lenses that focus its powerful CREE® LED to offer a harmonized beam of pure light and a wide field of view by lighting up a 34.5-foot area at 100 yards. When used in combination with a high-quality rifle scope, predator and target identification is possible out to 235 yards. The OD40 will run up to 3 hours on its low setting. It projects 100% of the light into one spot instead of “spilling” and “dispersing” reflected light. Most predators won’t flare from the clean, white Exude light. The OD40 also includes both amber and green lenses inside the robust zipper case that comes with each OD40. MSRP of the
Exude OD40 is $199.99. A fully adjustable rifle mount is sold separately. #WhatWillYouSee #ExudeLight

ArachniGRIP Salutes 4th of July with American Flag Imprints and Donations to Charity.

(Parker, CO) – ArachniGRIP®’s Slide Spider® slide grip is a must-have accessory for semi-auto pistol owners, and is now available in patriotic designs and at a special price in honor of the 4th of July. In addition, ArachniGRIP is donating a portion of profits from July 3-6 to a veteran and military focused charity.

ArachniGRIP is offering the Slide Spider slide grip with imprints of the American Flag or Betsy Ross flag design for Independence Day. The American Flag’s fifty white stars represent the fifty states of this great nation. The thirteen stripes of alternating red and white represent the thirteen colonies that declared independence from Great Britain. Together, this design makes up our nation’s flag as adopted on July 4, 1960 and also known as Old Glory, the Stars and Stripes, and The Star Spangled Banner.

The Betsy Ross flag design combines thirteen alternating red and white stripes and a collection of thirteen white stars arranged in a circle on a blue background. When Congress officially approved the issuance of this flag on June 14, 1777 sewn by Betsy Ross, they emphasized the new flag’s symbolism of the unity of the thirteen new states, a reminder to the world that we were no longer the thirteen English colonies.

The American Flag and Betsy Ross flag Slide Spider designs are shown on a black background and add a display of American pride to your handgun while adding grip enhancement. MSRP for the Slide Spider is $19.95. ArachniGRIP is offering a special patriotic discount of 17.76% off on purchases made through their website from July 3-6, 2020. The discount code is “1776” and can be applied during checkout.

During the 4th of July sales promotion, ArachniGRIP will donate $1 from every Slide Spider purchase to The Fisher House Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides comfort homes where military and veteran families can stay free of charge while a loved one is in the hospital. The Fisher House Foundation homes are located at military and VA medical centers around the world. To learn more, visit FisherHouse.org.

The Slide Spider grip by ArachniGRIP is available for most semi auto pistol models. The Slide Spider grip products enable the shooter to gain increased control through a safe and secure hold. The products also offer additional tactical advantages under challenging operating conditions, including extreme moisture and temperature.

Introducing Holsters For The Kimber K6S 4″

Concealable

PHOENIX, June 2020
Galco introduces holsters for the Kimber K6S revolver with 4” barrel:
The

HENSOLDT UK delivers full Integrated Naval Bridge System for Royal New Zealand Navy ship HMNZS Aotearoa

1252252577

HMNZS Aotearoa arrived in Auckland, New Zealand on June 25, 2020 with HENSOLDT UK’s Integrated Naval Bridge System on board. (Source: Dave Rowland/Getty Images)

Enfield, UK, 29 June 2020 – HENSOLDT UK have completed the delivery of a fully type approved Kelvin Hughes Integrated Naval Bridge System (INBS) for Polar-class logistic ship HMNZS Aotearoa. At 26,000 tons this is one of the largest ever vessel built for the Royal New Zealand Navy and was recently delivered by Hyundai Heavy Industries.

The INBS system is certified to Lloyd’s Register’s stringent INS code. It includes a dual redundant data distribution system and fully integrated Kelvin Hughes multifunction displays. The radar system takes advantage of the advanced solid state Kelvin Hughes SharpEye Doppler radars that bring full situational awareness to the bridge even in the most severe weather conditions.

The networked display system allows for operation as full multifunction workstations for improved ergonomic operation and redundancy. This means that the radar, the Warship Electronic Chart Display and Information System (WECDIS), the Bridge Alert Management System (BAMS) and other networked functions can be operated from any of the designated multifunction displays.

The SharpEye transceivers are located up mast in the carbon composite turning unit housing and bring additional benefits such as ease of installation and high reliability. The use of a direct drive motor system rather than the traditional antenna rotator gearbox also reduces maintenance.

Tony Taylor, Head of Naval and Surveillance at HENSOLDT UK, commented: “HMNZS Aotearoa has one of the most complex bridge systems delivered by HENSOLDT UK to date. We are pleased to see the HMNZS Aotearoa arriving in New Zealand and look forward to working with the crews for years to come.”

HENSOLDT UK is active in the development, manufacture and supply of maritime navigation, surveillance and security radar systems. The company sets international standards in solid state radar sensor technology with Kelvin Hughes SharpEye and its innovative tactical and situational awareness radar display software.

SharpEye is sold into a diverse range of markets and applications from maritime navigation, port vessel traffic services and coastal surveillance to ground surveillance and maritime security applications.

With its design, development and manufacturing facility in Enfield, North London, UK, HENSOLDT UK operates a worldwide support network that meets customer requirements 24/7.

Savage Embraces the Extreme Long Range Potential of 300 PRC



WESTFIELD, Massachusetts – June 26, 2020 – When the Department of Defense began looking for a long-range sniper round that produced consistent results with lighter recoil and less muzzle flash, Hornady’s 300 PRC quickly rose to the top. Now Savage has chambered several rifles in the outstanding new caliber that allow hunters and marksmen to make the most of the new round.

“The 300 PRC has opened up new possibilities for extreme long range shooting,” Jessica Treglia, Sr. Brand Manager at Savage Arms, said. “There’s no better platform for the round than a Savage. With their AccuTriggers and AccuStocks, Savage rifles offer the rugged stability needed for reliable accuracy at any distance.”

While 300 PRC is capable of exceptional accuracy, the round is not simply a paper-puncher. The true potential of the 300 PRC comes from the intentional pairing of heavy .30 caliber bullets with non-belted cases and temperature-stable powders. The 300 PRC’s projectiles achieve repeatable accuracy thanks to their high ballistic coefficients. The 30-degree shoulder of the case provides stable chamber alignment, while the non-belted cases stack efficiently and feed reliably from magazines. The combination allows for fast follow-up shots.

When these attributes are combined with Savage’s thread-in headspacing, floating bolt head, and button rifled barrels, the 300 PRC achieves astounding accuracy. With the stability of AccuStock and the precision of Savage’s AccuTrigger, the round’s potential is fully realized.

Savage builds rifles that enable shooters to make the most of their abilities. Now, with these guns in 300 PRC, competitors can reach new distances, hunters can push the limits of ethical shots—even southpaws will have off-the-shelf options that, once again, demonstrate Savage’s commitment to accessibility for all shooters.

300 PRC Features

  • Proven platforms chambered for 300 PRC.

  • User‐adjustable AccuTrigger

  • Button‐rifled barrel

  • Detachable AICS Magazine

  • Thread‐in barrel headspacing

  • 1‐Piece 20 MOA Rail

  • Serrated lock nut

NAUMD Names Columbus Police Department Best Dressed

Annual Awards honor both the departments and suppliers of the uniform program

Omaha, Neb. (June 2020) – The North American Association of Uniform Manufacturers & Distributors (NAUMD) has named the Columbus Police Department one of the nation’s best dressed. The Ohio agency is one of five winners in NAUMD’s Best Dressed Public Safety Award® Competition, an annual program that recognizes the important role uniforms play in law enforcement and public safety work. The awards honor both the departments and suppliers of the uniform program. Cincinnati’s Fechheimer supplied the winning look.

The Honor Guard uniform is a standout for the Columbus Police Department, and it consists of a dark navy blouse with one Columbus Division of Police patch and one Honor Guard patch on the upper sleeves. The blouse is adorned with gold buttons for supervisors and silver buttons for officers. Supervisors wear gold fourrageres and officers wear white fourrageres on the blouse. A white uniform shirt with an Honor Guard patch is worn under the blouse with dark navy pants that match the blouse.

The Best Dressed Public Safety Award® Competition emphasizes the high value of professional, neat, well-fitted and immediately identifiable uniforms in the vitally important role of public safety and law enforcement. The award showcases the dedication of the industry’s uniform professionals to designing and manufacturing the most comfortable, safe and versatile set of apparel possible required to meet the exacting standards of today’s law enforcement professionals.

“If an officer is well dressed and feels good, he or she will project a positive image to the community,” noted NAUMD President Steve Zalkin.

The Columbus Police Department earned the best dressed nod for departments with more than 500 officers. Others topping the list are Yocha Dehe, CA, FD Best Dressed Department with less than 100 members; Sarasota County FD, Best Dressed Department with more than 500 members; Cumberland County, NC, Sheriff’s Office, Best Dressed Law Enforcement, 100 – 500 Members; and Barre, MA, Police Department, Best Dressed Law Enforcement – Under 100 Members.

The Best Dressed Public Safety Award® Competition is open to all public safety departments across North America. Participants must submit a completed entry form, as well as photographs depicting the various uniforms in their program. An independent panel of experts reviews each department’s professional appearance and uniform specifications to determine whether the uniform is appropriate for the type of work being performed. All winning departments and their suppliers receive award plaques. An awards dinner scheduled to honor this year’s recipients has been canceled due to the current health crisis.

“This year, it is more important than ever to recognize these brave first responders who are on the front lines fighting the Covid pandemic” noted Zalkin. “The NAUMD is proud to honor this year’s winners and all in law enforcement who serve their communities.”

Helix 6 Precision Delivers a Pre-fit Upgrade for the Ruger Precision Rifle

Helix 6 Precision Delivers a Pre-fit Upgrade for the Ruger Precision Rifle

Vancouver, WA (June 25, 2020)-  The Ruger Precision Rifle (RPR) is a match-ready bolt-action rifle system designed for long-range tactical shooters. Thanks to its modular design, upgrading parts and accessories are quick and easy. The RPR uses Ruger’s barrel nut system, so upgrading to a Helix 6 Precision Carbon Fiber Barrel is simple and doesn’t require a lathe for installation. A carbon fiber barrel by Helix 6 Precision enhances accuracy while reducing the rifle’s overall weight-a smart option for boosting rifle handling and performance. Using proprietary carbon-fiber technology, Helix 6 Precision builds the world’s ultimate barrels for the Ruger Precision Rifle in three popular long-range calibers.      Helix 6 Precision’s Ruger Precision Rifle barrels use a match-grade 416R stainless steel core wrapped using a proprietary layup of carbon fiber. The barrel is threaded to fit Ruger action threads. Thanks to unique design attributes, Helix 6 barrels can be cut and rethreaded to the user’s preferred specs by a qualified gunsmith. Its design dampens barrel harmonics for outstanding accuracy. Button rifling and hand lapping each barrel improve accuracy while minimizing fouling. 
Helix 6 Precision manufactures carbon fiber barrels in three popular long-range calibers-6mm Creedmoor, 6.5 Creedmoor and .308 Winchester-for the Ruger Precision Rifle. The 6mm and 6.5 Creedmoor feature a 24-inch barrel with a fast 1-8 twist, needed to stabilize sleek high BC bullets, and the .308 Win barrel uses a 1-10 twist for optimum long-range performance. All barrels have a .980-inch diameter straight bull contour and weigh between 2.56- and 2.75-pounds depending on the cartridge! Barrels include industry-standard 5/8-24 threads for the rapid installation of an aftermarket muzzle brake or suppressor. 
Installing a Helix 6 Precision carbon fiber barrel on your Ruger Precision Rifle is simple. All that’s needed is a barrel nut wrench and the cartridge-specific headspace gauges. However, they recommend the services of a gunsmith if you do not have the tools or the skills to install and headspace your new Helix 6 Precision barrel properly. 
Helix 6 Precision uses only premium materials and cutting-edge manufacturing technology to create the world’s ultimate carbon fiber barrel. Available now as pre-fit barrels for the Ruger Precision Rifle, it is easy to upgrade to a proudly made in the USA, Helix 6 Precision barrel. 
Visit us online at www.helix6precision.com for complete details on the Ruger Precision Rifle pre-fit barrels. 

Helix 6 Precision began with the singular goal of producing the world’s finest carbon fiber barrel. For 20 years it has been their passion to build the finest precision rifles available using only premium components. Bad experiences and dissatisfaction with the industry’s carbon fiber barrels led them to seek out the world’s most innovative engineers in carbon fiber design and fabrications.

We continue to push the limits of innovation to improve our process and products. We use only premium materials and cutting edge manufacturing technology, to produce the highest quality, handcrafted, carbon fiber barrel on the market. 100% Made in USA.  For more information, please visit WWW.HELIX6PRECISION.COM GET CONNECTED

Blackhawk™ Introduces New T-Series™ Red Dot Sight (RDS) Holster

Blackhawk_Logo_Black_LG

New Level 3 Duty Holster Compatible with Pistol Mounted Red Dots

VIRGINIA BEACH, Virginia – June 25, 2020 Blackhawk, a leader in law enforcement and military equipment for over 20 years, announced today that the company’s popular T-Series line will be expanded to offer new Level 3 Duty Light Bearing holsters compatible with pistol mounted red dot sights. The new T-Series Red Dot Sight (RDS) Holsters are designed for use with the Trijicon RMR/SRO, Leupold Delta Point Pro, SIG Romeo1Pro, and other similar sized optics.

Developed to support law enforcement officers who are authorized to use red dot sights on patrol sidearms, the T-Series RDS Holsters provide maximum protection for both the firearm and optic. The dual-injected molded holster provides proven durability for the sidearm while an additional removable rotating dust cover further protects the optic from impacts and debris. This combination of features provides users with a sleek, ergonomic design without adding extra bulk to the holster.

The T-Series RDS Holster will initially be available in a right handed, light-bearing Level 3 Duty (L3D) model for the Glock 17.  Additional models will soon be available including both Level 2 Duty (L2D) and L3D in left and right-hand configurations for the Glock 17 and SIG SAUER P320 pistols. The holsters can be used with the Streamlight TLR-1 and TLR-2 pistol lights.

“As more law enforcement agencies authorize the use of red dot sights on patrol sidearms, the need for a duty rated holster that can accommodate these optics has never been greater,” said Evan McNamara, Director of Product Development for Blackhawk. “With its streamlined thumb-activation retention, the T-Series RDS Holsters keep your firearm and rear optic at the ready while maintaining total security.”

The Blackhawk T-Series line is the world’s first thumb driven, dual-injected molded holster. The holster combines the company’s proven outer body strength made possible with a glass reinforced nylon along with a soft touch inner layer that is both super slick and sound-dampening. This durable and efficient, low-friction design translates into a smooth, quiet draw or when re-holstering the sidearm. Designed to follow Blackhawk’s Master Grip Principle, all T-Series holsters have been specifically developed to allow the user’s hand to land naturally where it should in order to deploy the sidearm.

For more information on the new light-bearing T-Series L3D RDS Holsters for the Glock 17/19/22/23/31/32/45/47 or to view the complete line of T-Series holsters visit www.blackhawk.com/holsters/.

ANOKA, Minnesota – June 25, 2020Federal and CCI Ammunition sponsored shooter Grant Kunkel used products from these trusted brands to win big in both Rimfire and Pistol Caliber Carbine at two recent championship events.

“Grant is in his second year as a member of our team. He was recommended to us by one of our customers and apparently bought his first 22 LR firearm only 2 1/2 years ago. He’s made tremendous progress, as evidenced by his time of only 58.5 seconds in the Rimfire Rifle Iron Sights category. A time like has the potential to be a world record,” said Federal Shooting Sports Promotions Manager Jason Spradling. “Grant is pretty soft-spoken, but he’s a great kid and a heck of an ambassador for Federal. We congratulate him on his recent successes.”

Kunkel took home High Overall honors, besting 361 fellow competitors at the 2020 Area 5 Steel Challenge Championship in Riley, Indiana. In that match, he had five total first place finishes which also included the categories of Rimfire Rifle Open, Pistol Caliber Carbine Open and Carry Optics. Kunkel shoots CCI Mini-Mag during rimfire competitions. Mini-Mag was CCI’s original offering decades ago, and it’s still one of the brand’s most popular. The accurate 22 LR load feeds reliably and minimizes fouling thanks to clean-burning powder, and it feeds reliably thanks to CCI priming and brass.

Kunkel also shot well at the recent 2020 USPSA Multigun Nationals Match in Frostproof, Florida. He placed 14th Overall out of 340 competitors and 3rd in the Master class. He ran Federal Premium Syntech PCC 130-grain during that match. Syntech PCC is built to meet the exhaustive demands of fast-pace Pistol Caliber Carbine competitions, with flawless function in carbine platforms. Velocity and accuracy are optimized for long gun barrel lengths, with a bullet profile that provides excellent accuracy and reliable feeding. Syntech PCC uses a polymer jacket to eliminate metal fouling and drastically reduce heat and friction. 

“I use CCI Mini-Mag through all of my rimfire guns, it gives me the confidence to shoot my best,” reported Kunkel. “For handguns, shooting Federal Premium Syntech PCC 130-grain really helps, especially with longer-range targets. It’s extremely soft recoil, accuracy, and faster bullet helped me make quick shots while staying on target.”

Federal and CCI ammunition can be found at dealers nationwide or purchased online direct. For more on Federal ammunition, visit www.federalpremium.com. For more information on CCI Ammunition, go to www.cci-ammunition.com

NAUMD Names Barre Police Department Best Dressed

Annual Awards honor both the departments and suppliers of the uniform program.

Omaha, Neb. (June 2020) – The North American Association of Uniform Manufacturers & Distributors (NAUMD)has named the Barre Police Department one of the nation’s best dressed. The Massachusetts agency is one of five winners in NAUMD’s Best Dressed Public Safety Award® Competition, an annual program that recognizes the important role uniforms play in law enforcement and public safety work. The awards honor both the departments and suppliers of the uniform program.  
The uniforms worn by the officers of the Barre Police Department score high in appearance, functionality and comfort. Barre is located in the Central Massachusetts snow belt. The switch to a well-made, poly/wool trouser and shirt provided a more proper amount of climate protection than the previous poly/cotton uniform. Officers are now warmer in the winter and comfortable throughout the year, and Ike length jackets greatly increased the functionality by allowing easy access to duty belt equipment.
The Best Dressed Public Safety Award® Competition emphasizes the high value of professional, neat, well-fitted and immediately identifiable uniforms in the vitally important role of public safety and law enforcement. The award showcases the dedication of the industry’s uniform professionals to designing and manufacturing the most comfortable, safe and versatile set of apparel possible required to meet the exacting standards of today’s law enforcement professionals.
“If an officer is well dressed and feels good, he or she will project a positive image to the community,” noted NAUMD President Steve Zalkin.
Barre Police earned the best dressed nod for departments with less than 100 members. Others topping the list are Cumberland County, NC, Sheriff’s Department, Best Dressed Department with 100 – 500 members; Columbus, OH, Police Department, Best Dressed Department with more than 500 officers; Yocha Dehe, CA, Fire Department, Best Dressed Department with less than 100 members; Sarasota County Fire Department, Best Dressed Department with more than 500 members. 
The Best Dressed Public Safety Award® Competition is open to all public safety departments across North America. Participants must submit a completed entry form, as well as photographs depicting the various uniforms in their program. An independent panel of experts reviews each department’s professional appearance and uniform specifications to determine whether the uniform is appropriate for the type of work being performed. All winning departments and their suppliers receive award plaques. An awards dinner scheduled to honor this year’s recipients has been canceled due to the current health crisis. 
“This year, it is more important than ever to recognize these brave first responders who are on the front lines fighting the Covid pandemic” noted Zalkin. “The NAUMD is proud to honor this year’s winners and all in law enforcement who serve their communities.” 

About North American Association of Uniform Manufacturers and Distributors (NAUMD): The NAUMD was founded in 1932. This association is a community for the uniform and image apparel industry.

Who the hell is running our States and Cities?

giphy

We’ve made it through another week and what a week it’s been. Question: who the hell is running our States and Cities? Ans: “progressive” Democrats. Talk about a lackluster group of individuals but as the saying goes citizens get the governments they elect. We have seen rioting, looting and destruction of public monuments. It’s a sad state of affairs and the only remedy is for voters to get with the program and elect competent government. But, enough of this!

So, it’s Friday and time for a shoot the shit.

If you’re new to the sight, I try to schedule a shoot the shit weekly, on Fridays, to help you get your weekend started free from emotional distress. I do that to help you avoid seeing a therapist or using behavioral assistance apps of which there are roughly 1450 on IOS and Android. There’s no need to pay some jackasses that studied psychology so they could understand themselves $150+ an hour to do what you can do during a shoot the shit.

A shoot the shit is a social interaction in which participants don’t need to know anything about the subject being discussed, they’re free to make unsupported comments, use uncensored profanity, insult anyone they wish or change the subject altogether. It can also be implemented via Skype or any other video conferencing service.

Having said that, I’ll get started .

I enjoy watching commercials because to a great extent they are comedic as oppose to informative, NordicTrak is one of them; the Company has been around for years and is well established in the exercise machine spaces. So, how many of you have seen the commercial featuring Sarah and Oliver, in case you haven’t here it is

 

I think Oliver and Sarah are doing a bit more than bike riding and Sarah likes to be on top, what’s your opinion?

Moving right along…

From time to time, I get questions about what pistols I would recommend. A few years back, it was a fairly easy question for me to answer: SIG, Glock and H&K. However, times have changed and over the years there’s been a veritable cornucopia of excellent striker fired pistols on the market, so I’ve changed  my answer and now say: get what you can find that feels good in your hand. The pictures below were taken at one of the largest gun stores in the state with 9 locations. As you can see this was the only Glock in inventory. As for the rest of the brands, the picture below will tell you everything you need to know.

20200621_110256

The sales clerks looked like the life had be sucked out of them. If Dracula existed his victims would look like these poor associates from the store traffic they are dealing with.

Manufacturers are rolling out product by the truck loads as fast as they can build it. It’s unbelievable!

If you shoot 300 AAC try finding a box, online or in the stores, there’s not a box to be had.

Gun ranges are also a mess. You farm boys with plenty of land available don’t know how lucky you are. Gun ranges in the area, are limiting the number of shooters to 10 and limiting range time to 1 to 1.5 hours, so by the time you get setup it’s time to go. If you need to chronograph a load you can just forget it due to range rules and the time it takes to set up, which leads me to a suggestion for any range operator listening.

Set up 1 or 2 lanes equipped with a chronograph at a range depth of 25 yards, it’s all one needs to evaluate your loads. Let your customers reserve time on the lanes and charge accordingly. A Lab Radar would make an excellent chronograph for this application. It would be a welcomed addition to your range.

I’ll close by saying that the country needs our help. We have charlatans in elected positions that lack the love of country and courage to stand up for the citizens they allegedly represent. This should not discourage you, it should anger you, and in this Republic we express that anger at the polls. The November Elections are nearly upon us and I can’t recall a more important event than this years election. Get out and vote.

Have a great weekend. Be safe and try to have a good shoot the shit with your buds or family.

-SP

CCI’s Newest Clean-22 Option is Optimized for Suppressed Firearms and Packed in Convenient Cartons

Image

LEWISTON, Idaho – June 24, 2020 CCI Ammunition is proud to announce new Clean-22 Suppressor 22 LR rounds, packaged in CCI’s new easy-to-pour, bulk-pack cartons. Shipments of this new product have begun to arrive at dealers.

This new ammunition uses an advanced polymer bullet coating to reduce lead fouling inside a suppressor by up to 60 percent. The exclusive feature allows much easier suppressor cleaning and maintenance, as well as excellent accuracy. With dependable CCI priming and consistent propellant, the loads cycle reliably through any suppressed firearm.

“Clean-22 ammunition provides an advantage because its polymer coating replaces the wax that is traditionally applied to 22 LR ammunition,” said CCI Rimfire Product Manager Dan Compton. “The goal of traditional wax is to protect the barrel of the gun from buildup of lead or copper created as bullets pass through it. But this wax does not totally encapsulate the bullet, so metal and wax deposits eventually build up and the gun needs to be cleaned. However, because the Clean-22 polymer coating completely encapsulates the bullet, it does a better job protecting the barrel from dirt and buildup than wax. The cleaner results are quite impressive.” 

Features

  • Black polymer bullet coating reduces lead fouling in suppressors up to 60 percent
  • Ballistically optimized 40-grain lead round nose bullet
  • Reliable function in semi-automatic firearms
  • Extremely reliable CCI priming and brass case

https://www.cci-ammunition.com/rimfire/cci/clean-22_suppressor/6-980CC.html

CCI recently launched a new website which includes a fresh look and design, and a mobile-first approach to meet the needs of today’s consumer. Plus, the new site offers customers the ability to purchase CCI rimfire ammunition, Blazer handgun ammunition, branded merchandise and more direct from CCI.  CCI’s online shopping cart features free shipping on orders of $99 or more.

Galco Expands Line of Holster Belts

A sturdy belt, designed to bear the weight of a handgun and EDC accessories, is the foundation of a comfortable all-day carry system. Galco offers a wide variety of holster belts that work with every type of attire, from business suits to casual wear, in both leather and nylon.

Galco’s dress belts are suitable for wear with more formal clothing like suits or a blazer and dress pants. They feature solid-brass rectangular buckles and step-skived, feather-edge construction and are visually indistinguishable from fashion dress belts, yet will support the weight of a defensive handgun all day long. They’re also narrow enough to fit in the belt loops of most suit and dress pants. Examples include the SB1 and SB3.

Casual holster belts can come in leather or nylon. These are more suited for wearing with jeans, most chinos, and other informal clothing. Leather casual belts, like the SB2, SB5 and SB6, have a rounded solid-brass buckle for a relaxed look. Nylon belts feature a variety of buckles, from Instructors style to modern Cobra and EDC designs, and are made from SCUBA or Type 13 nylon.

Galco also offers belts suitable for inside the waistband (IWB) carry. These aren’t as rigid as holster belts suited for OWB carry, but they don’t need to be. Much of the support for an IWB holster comes from belt pressure pushing the handgun against the body, obviating the need for an extremely rigid belt. IWB belts include the SB14 and SB18.

No matter how you dress, or how you prefer to carry on your waistline, Galco belts will help you create a solid foundation for your daily carry system. See our complete line in the Belts section of our website!

You might not think of wool as an option in Florida, but 100% wool fabric is precisely what the Sarasota County Fire Department decided on for their uniforms. That’s because the department believes wool is actually a perfect warm weather option. And when combined with NAFECO’s creativity, the fabric creates a winning look as well. Black and “Old” gold keep the look simple. Traditional bell crown hats and accessories complete the appearance.     
The Best Dressed Public Safety Award® Competition emphasizes the high value of professional, neat, well-fitted and immediately identifiable uniforms in the vitally important role of public safety and law enforcement.

ECA GROUP to detect buried sea mines – always moving one step ahead in naval mine countermeasures

ECA GROUP and SOACSY recently signed a licensing agreement giving ECA GROUP exclusive rights to exploit its developments using seaCHIRP® technology based on SAS (Synthetic Aperture Sonar) for the detection of buried naval mines.

Naval mines are a real threat for seafarers and a navy’s daily concern. They have various forms and can be either visible on the surface (moored or floating mines) or detectable underwater as bottom mines. Underwater mines can get buried by waves and currents in sandy bottoms or by impact in muddy soil. As a consequence, naval mines become undetectable by the usual conventional high frequency mine hunting sonars mounted on mine hunting vessels, as well as towed sonars or sonars mounted on AUVs.

ECA GROUP, specialized in robotics for naval mine countermeasures for over 50 years and which provides its solutions to over 30 navies worldwide, and SOACSY, company specializing in the development of innovative acoustic systems and survey service, have signed a licensing agreement in order to provide a precise and efficient solution for buried mines detection and classification.

With its innovative seaCHIRP® technology, SOACSY sets the new standard in sub-bottom profiling data quality, resulting in improved signal / noise, accurate interpretation of detected objects, and cost effectiveness.

For more than ten years, SOACSY has been developing the seaCHIRP® technology for precise and efficient buried objects detection and localization: Combining Super-Wideband technology with High Resolution Beamforming and Synthetic Aperture Sonar processing, which was designed for the purpose of precise and efficient sub-seabed exploration and assessment. Data are collected, processed online in Low Resolution and visualized for quality check purposes, using the proprietary seaCHIRP® Software. Then, the collected data are post processed and can be interpreted using the proprietary seaLOGS software.

Since 2014, when the first operational prototype was developed by SOACSY, the company performed different commercial operations which represent about 2400km of survey lines, with 1 Terabyte of data collected. The system was operated from 5 to 40m long ships. The main applications were detection of UXO (UneXploded Ordnance), boulders, debris, pipelines/cables, marine archeology and sedimentary studies.

The main advantages of the seaCHIRP® technology are full seabed coverage in minimized acquisition time, precise X, Y, Z contact positioning, contact size estimation, quick and easy set-up, as well as a compact, versatile and ruggedized system.

ECA GROUP will industrialize the seaCHIRP® technology in the frame of this license agreement in order to provide navies with a fully operational solution to detect and classify buried subsea mines. ECA Robotics Belgium (ECA GROUP)  will be in charge of the development and industrialization of the seaCHIRP® technology as part of IES commitment of Belgium Naval & Robotics contract for the supply of 12 MCM ships for the Belgium and Netherlands navies.

Leveraging on the synergy with ECA GROUP’s on-going works in high frequency synthetic aperture sonar, a real-time solution for data processing will be developed, using proprietary (patent pending) algorithms for efficient and accurate synthetic aperture processing.  

The aim is to integrate buried mines neutralization capability within ECA GROUP’s UMISTM (Unmanned MCM Integrated System). This solution is a comprehensive drones based system for mine warfare operations, developed by ECA GROUP, for surveying and securing large or complex zones at sea as well as coastal areas. This modular solution is based on a wide range of unmanned vehicles such as USVs, UUVs (AUVs, ROVs, MIDS), towed systems (sonars, sweeps) and UAVs that can be configured according to the needs of the user and operational requirements. UMIS also integrates a comprehensive software suite UMISOFTTM allowing easy and complete management of the entire unmanned mission from preparation, planning and supervision, to data acquisition, processing analysis and management.

“We are very proud of Lena for defending her title as the USPSA PCC Lady’s National Champion and being the only female to ever hold the title since the competition’s inception.

At this year’s Nationals, Lena debuted a new stock that we are excited about for the MPX featuring multiple adjustment points that we are excited about, and will soon be available as an accessory purchase in the commercial market.”

To take her “High Lady” title at the 2020 USPSA PCC National Championship Miculek competed through 12 stages testing her skills and agility. For the competition, Miculek used her SIG SAUER MPX PCC with a ROMEO3XL reflex sight.

“After an extended time away from the competition it was great to get back to shooting competitively at this elite level for Team SIG. PCC competition is relatively new, and it is great to see the popularity of both the PCC platform and PCC competition gain momentum,” said Miculek. “This year’s nationals grew to nearly 250 competitors overall, and in the Lady’s Division especially, the competition was fierce and I was challenged throughout. My SIG equipment, combined with my focused PCC training routine leading up to the Nationals, gave me the advantage I needed to defend my PCC National Championship title and bring a second USPSA Nationals title in 2020 to Team SIG.”

First California Police Department Implements New Transparency Technology

fact-camera-mc_main%201King City, California first agency to implement Viridian Gun Cameras also in use by LA Port Police and approved by LA County

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – June 23, 2020 – The King City, California Police Department has deployed the FACT Duty Weapon-Mounted Camera (WMC). As transparency in Law Enforcement once again becomes a critical need at this juncture in society today, Chief Robert Masterson and the department have the only technology and tool dedicated to capturing Officer Involved Shootings.

King City is in Monterey County of Central California and sits almost equidistant from several large, major California cities on the banks of the Salinas River. King City is the first department in California to complete implementation of the FACT Duty which is in various stages of testing and implementation in over 40 states across the country.

“The Weapon-Mounted Cameras were purchased and implemented to capture use of force incidents where officers drew their firearms or were involved in an Officer Involved Shooting,” said King City Police Captain Keith Boyd. “As we have all seen, the country, the community and the world expect objective and immediate evidence of Officer Involved Shootings. And this gun camera does just that. They complement our body worn cameras and we see them as a benefit in modern policing.”

Viridian has created an important category for law enforcement with the Weapon-Mounted Camera. This distinctive 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.

“We commend Chief Masterson and the King City Police for being on the leading edge of law enforcement,” Viridian President and CEO, Brian Hedeen, said.  “California has one of the largest number of officers in the country, so this is absolutely needed. Our technology can be a supplement or alternative to body cameras as a mandatory evidentiary tool to provide the critical evidence in an officer involved shooting.”

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.

HAVE YOU HEARD OF ROUTE INSURANCE?

4d021040-2371-4651-9043-fb54ac08951b

We are excited to let you know we have partnered with Route to provide you with peace of mind in receiving your package. Porch piracy has been on the rise and with online sales increasing dramatically in the last few years, more packages are getting lost in transit. Some are even getting damaged from shipping companies pushing for higher outputs to meet demands. And because of all this, we chose Route to help in putting you at ease in knowing whatever happens, Route will take care of the product.

Route is an opt-in insurance backed by Lloyds of London, that costs only .98 cents for the first $100. When making a purchase, a charge of .98 cents will be added to your order in the shopping cart. IF you choose not to have the insurance, you can slide the switch to the off position. We’ve attached a link to show you. However, we highly recommend using the insurance to give you the peace of mind you will be protected for theft, lost or damaged packages. And with the downloaded Route app, if you had to make a claim, it is super simple.

Even if you don’t opt-in on the insurance, we recommend downloading the free Route app when you get the shipping status email from us. It’s a handy tool in tracking your shipment. AND the great part is you can use the app to track any shipments you buy online from any company. It shows a map of where your package is on its delivery route and notifies you when the package is dropped off so you can pull it off the porch before the porch pirates arrive.

Please note, that Nexbelt does not earn any money from your purchase of the insurance. We just want to make sure our customers get the peace of mind of receiving their products.

Thank you for your business and support!
