NSSF Member Employees Shine in SHOT Business ‘40 Under 40’ Listing

For immediate release | November 23, 2020

40 Under 40NEWTOWN, Conn. – SHOT Business®, the official publication of NSSF®, the firearm industry trade association, recently published its December 2020 issue. Its most notable feature article, and the first of its kind to appear between the covers of the journal, was its “40 Under 40 Awards,” which highlighted 40 people under 40 moving the industry forward in extraordinary ways.

“Today’s gun owners—younger, female and more diverse across the board—need people within the firearm industry they can relate to, people who speak their language and with whom they can make the personal connection that is needed to keep them engaged and participating in the shooting sports,” said Slaton White, SHOT Business Editor. “Those industry professionals making those connections with today’s gun buyers and recreational shooters are, by and large, under 40 years of age, and it’s high time they were recognized for their talents and innovations.”

More than a few of the nominees work for or with NSSF member companies.

“We are so impressed with what these professionals have accomplished and how they’re building bridges with the public we’ve never had before,” said Chris Dolnack, NSSF Senior Vice President and CMO. “That so many of them work for NSSF member companies speaks to the greater strengths of these brands and their willingness to embrace new ways of communicating with the public. It’s what our industry needs, and we’re very proud to see our members leading the way forward.”

Notable “40 Under 40” industry influencers working for or with NSSF member companies include:

SIG SAUER Begins Shipping P320 Fire Control Unit (FCU) and Launches P320 Studio Virtual Configurator at sigsauer.com

NEWINGTON, N.H., (November 19, 2020) – SIG SAUER, Inc. is pleased to announce the SIG SAUER Custom Works P320 Fire Control Unit (FCU) is now shipping and arriving at select SIG SAUER Master and Elite Dealers.  The standalone P320 Fire Control Unit (FCU) enables an entirely new level of customization and personalization in the world of firearms; in addition consumers now have the ability to build a completely custom P320 using the P320 Studio at sigsauer.com.

“The P320 pistol is renowned for both its unprecedented modularity and unmatched capability to become the pistol of choice amongst firearms enthusiasts and all branches of the U.S. Military,” said Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, SIG SAUER, Inc.  “The soul of the P320, and the driving force behind its modularity, is the patented, serialized fire control unit that gives the consumer the ability to build their dream pistol from the ground up.”

The SIG SAUER P320 Custom Works Fire Control Unit (FCU) is a patented, serialized fire control unit (only available at select retail stores) that features a titanium nitride coating and lightened skeletonized trigger with an exclusive FCU Serial Number (FCU ###), and is compatible with 9mm, 357 SIG and 40 S&W calibers.

“In conjunction with the availability of the P320 FCU in retail stores, we are also launching the P320 Studio online at sigsauer.com.  This level of customization is an industry first and the virtual experience offers the consumer countless options and endless possibilities to build and view their custom P320,” continued Taylor.  “We are planning to take the customization element of this one step further, because we recognize that the consumer wants what they want, and sometimes that’s something SIG doesn’t offer.  By working hand-in-hand with premium after-market component manufacturers, FCU customers can quite literally build their dream P320 however they want.”   

The P320 Studio gives the consumer a unique online experience to build a P320 pistol from the ground up by choosing a grip module, slide, barrel, guides and springs, optics, or complete CAL-X Kits with the virtual P320 configurator.  All parts available within the P320 Studio are available for purchase direct from sigsauer.com.

“It’s quite fitting that for the pistol known for its modularity, SIG has found yet another way to introduce an entirely new level of modularity and personal customization to the P320,” concluded Taylor.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE “SABER DOWN,” The New Thriller by Harrison Kone, Available December 2020

Author, Harrison Kone, takes readers on a thrilling ride of intrigue as a MARSOC Special Operations Officer takes on arms dealers, terrorists, and even his government.

Atlanta, Ga.(November 2020) – While on mission near Kandahar, Afghanistan, an IED and ambush take seasoned MARSOC Marine Raider, Captain David Shaw, out of the fight. While recuperating at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, Shaw learns greater forces within the military are pushing him toward a forced medical retirement, but Shaw is hell-bent on returning to his team in the Middle East. As his team heads to Yemen for a special assignment, Shaw is left with no choice but to observe as a spectator from the inside of a US-based mission room. He watches in horror as their helicopters are shot down by unknown forces. After discovering the identity of the individuals responsible but unable to get to them on his own, Shaw bends the rules and subverts his command to lead a raid against the terrorist leader responsible for the attack on his men. But the mission leads to new questions. Who provided the US-made weapons used in the attack? Who is selling out Marines for profit?

Harrison Kone’s debut thriller, “SABER DOWN” published by Deeds Publishing, takes readers from the sands of Afghanistan to Marine bases in the US; from battle-torn Yemen to the turquoise waters of the Caribbean on a roller-coaster ride of collusion, intrigue, and the heroic actions of the MARSOC Marine Raiders. Inspired by real-world events and his grandfather’s stories as a Marine Corps machine gunner during WWII in some of the toughest conflicts faced by our Marines, Kone pays tribute to the men and women who head toward the sound of gunfire to protect our Country’s way of life and liberty.

“The protagonist in SABER DOWN, Captain David Shaw, was birthed from the question, what does a philosopher warrior look like?” Harrison explained. “My grandfather, who served in the Marines during WWII, fit this bill. At 100, his mind is as sharp as ever. In his play, he wrote his personal philosophy on life and death, war and peace that was heavily influenced by his time on Guadalcanal and Bougainville. My protagonist, in many ways, is the modern incarnation of my grandfather: inquisitive, philosophical, and dedicated to duty. What would happen if this warrior faced corruption, greed, and personal loss? How would he react? What would this philosopher warrior do? Read SABER DOWN to find out.”

“SABER DOWN” will be available at Amazon and everywhere books are sold in early December 2020, for $35.00 for a hardback edition, $21.95 for a paperback edition, and $9.99 for an e-book edition. See the SABER DOWN book trailer here.

“I cannot express my excitement to release this book and connect with a community of engaged readers,” Harrison continued. “My hope is that SABER DOWN provides a thrilling adventure for its readers and that these readers can walk in the footsteps of some of the nation’s most elite warriors. The novel draws on the combat experience of veterans to provide engaging and believable realism. There are no super soldiers, no Captain Americas, just men and women dedicated to a creed, an ideal, that the individual next to you on the battlefield is worth dying for. SABER DOWN honors the teamwork of our special operations communities and that devotion to one another.

They understand that the mission cannot be accomplished alone but through the will of the team. I hope that the readers of this book will be so moved that they choose to live their life in a similar way, striving to accomplish greatness in their own endeavors, leaving no dream to rot in the realm of What if?”

Kone, writer, 2nd Amendment advocate, theologian, and family man, is available for speaking engagements and interviews. Please contact Laura Burgess at laura@lauraburgess.com for more information on how to engage with the author of this new globe-trotting thriller.

Follow Kone and stay informed on his next thriller at www.harrisonkone.com  or Parler.

The Launch Trailer for the MARSOC Thriller, SABER DOWN.

About Harrison Kone:

Author of the debut thriller, “Saber Down,” Harrison’s characters, including the charismatic Captain David Shaw, were inspired by his grandfather, a Marine gunner with the 1st and 3rd Marine Divisions in WWII’s Guadalcanal and Bougainville campaigns, and the many others who have answered the call to military services in defense of our liberty. Harrison’s writing has been featured on the front lines of combating Antisemitism. As an ardent patriot and 2nd Amendment advocate, Harrison enjoys time spent pursuing his passions including outdoor adventures, shooting sports, theology, and most importantly, his family.

ISTI (INDRA) AND THE TRADE UNIONS REACH AN AGREEMENT ON THE LABOR REORGANIZATION PROCEDURE

image


Madrid, November 19, 2020.- ISTI (Indra Soluciones Tecnológicas de la Información) and a broad majority of the employees’ legal representation have reached an agreement that puts an end to the consultation process of the labor reorganization procedure that began on 20 October.

During the course of the meetings held in recent weeks, the two parties have made an effort to reach an agreement that minimizes the impact of the restructuring process on the volume of employment, thanks to the addition of social measures, including the following:

· Internal flexibility measures to reduce the number of workers affected by the job amortization and to improve the training and retraining of a large group of employees, such as:

· Suspension of the work contract (ERTE) as a measure to facilitate vocational training and retraining and, therefore, job retention for a maximum number of 125 workers. Over a period of six months the employees will be obligated to undergo the vocational training and retraining program chosen and funded by the company, which will allow them to obtain a certificate of aptitude for certain relevant skills to improve their employability.

· A salary adjustment for a group of employees with earnings significantly above the average for their role or activity to conserve employment, a measure that will affect a maximum of 100 employees.

· As a consequence of the aforementioned, a reduction in the number of workers affected by contract termination measures from the initially planned figure of 1,036 to the definitive maximum figure of 580.

· Mechanisms to protect any employees who, due to their age, are closer to retirement.

· Measures to protect certain collectives that are more vulnerable or deserving of more favorable treatment to enable them to retain their jobs.

· An outplacement plan, thus improving the requirements of the current legislation to protect and promote outplacements and self-employment.

The agreement therefore includes innovative measures which reconcile the need of the company to achieve its objectives of rationalizing and optimizing the workforce, with the importance of permanent training and retraining as well as their application in accordance with social criteria for the protection of collectives with greater difficulties in accessing employment.

This agreement for the transformation of ISTI’s workforce forms part of an action plan announced by Indra last July to overcome the difficulties motivated by structural changes in markets where ISTI and Indra Sistemas operate and adapt to the current market demand, remove inefficiencies and improve the company’s competitiveness. This general action plan focuses on cost efficiency and the prioritization of investments and resources and is based on the proactive management of the new demand, boosting income, leveraging its technological capabilities and speeding up the transformation of its operations. This plan is framed within the context of ongoing negotiations with the employees’ legal representation of Indra Sistemas that started two weeks ago and should end by the first week of December.

Its main lines of action include a reduction of non-personnel costs, improvements to the internal processes and new working models, reorientation of the investment in CAPEX and balance sheet adjustments and the transformation of the workforce.

Introducing Galco’s VHS 4.0 for the Sig P320/M17!

Galco’s VHS 4.0:
Available for SIG-Sauer P320F/M17 with RDS!

VHS 4

PHOENIX, November 2020
Galco’s
VHS 4.0™ is now available for the SIG-Sauer P320F/M17 with and without red dot sights!
Galco’s original VHS™ (Vertical Holster System) was field-proven across the globe from Afghanistan to America. The VHS series provides a very comfortable alternative for those who like Galco’s world-famous Miami Classic but prefer the traditional vertical carry style.
After over a decade of experience with the VHS, Galco has continued to refine, update and improve it. The VHS 4.0 brings recontoured shoulder straps for added comfort and concealment, the introduction of a new harness fastener system, the addition of an innovative new tie-down system, and a new spare ammo carrier for revolver fits.
A key component of all Galco shoulder systems, including the VHS 4.0, is the harness. It uses a four-point harness that pivots independently, connected by our clover-shaped, trademarked Flexalon™ swivel back plate. Along with our patented swivel connectors, this results in a perfect fit and lasting comfort for virtually all body sizes and shapes. The new tool-free harness fastener system offers better security, ease of assembly, and greatly reduced chance of fastener loss.
The VHS 4.0 for comes complete with vertical holster, harness, double ammo carrier, tie-downs and harness fasteners. It’s fully modular, so optional
interchangeable accessories and components may be purchased separately to create a unique shoulder system all your own.
Whether you patrol the perilous sands of the Middle East, metropolitan America on the ground or from the air, exercise your Second Amendment right to bear arms, or stalk the hunting fields of the world, the VHS 4.0 will help you and your handgun stay secure in an often-dangerous world.

Legally Armed America to Live-Stream SHOT Show-Themed Video Content

LEGALLY ARMED AMERICA

TO LIVE-STREAM SHOT SHOW-THEMED

VIDEO CONTENT

“1791 Summit” Digital Video Alternative

Lake Charles, LA – (November 18, 2020) – For the fifth consecutive year, Legally Armed America will live-stream SHOT Show-themed video content to their audience of one million-plus fans. From Monday, January 18 through Friday, January 22, 2021, the ‘1791 Summit’ will showcase new-for-2021 products and brands while delivering an inside look at the shooting industry to gun enthusiasts.

According to Paul Glasco, President of Legally Armed America and host of the 1791 Summit, “Even though SHOT Show 2021 was canceled because of COVID, we still want our partners in the shooting industry to be able to promote their brands and innovations like they normally would. The 1791 Summit offers a digital video alternative to the in-person experience our fans are used to seeing from us during SHOT Show. The companies that make up our industry have a lot of exciting news to share with folks about their latest product developments, and we’re excited to share that news with our loyal audience,” he added.


RANGE DAY

Following the same calendar as SHOT Show, beginning on Monday, January 18, the 1791 Summit will live-stream “Range Day” content straight from their gun range in Lake Charles, LA. “While our audience watches, we’ll demonstrate the newest products and advancements with the live-fire excitement they’re used to. During each 15 to 20-minute segment, the folks at home can ask questions in real-time – providing engaging feedback for our industry partners,” Glasco said.

VIRTUAL BOOTH 

Beginning on Tuesday, January 19 through Friday, January 22, the 1791 Summit will live-stream virtual booth segments from sponsor companies. “These segments are completely up to our partners,” said Glasco. “Companies can take the audience through their actual booth or simply live-stream from their office. They could set up new products in their conference room and talk about them, or they could take the audience behind the scenes of their headquarters to talk with gunsmiths, engineers, or shooters. We can also follow the format we’ve used at SHOT Show where I ask questions and they discuss the products,” he said.

PRODUCT SPOT

Another option for companies who wish to participate in the 1791 Summit includes 8 short-form segments where Paul Glasco presents a product and discusses what makes it compelling and noteworthy. “These Product Spot segments will be scattered throughout each day of the Rage Day, and Virtual Booth Experience,” said Glasco.

LIVE-STREAM OPTIONS

  • Range Day, one (1) 15 to 20-minute, live-fire presentation, and product/brand overview, January 18, 2021
  • Virtual Booth, one (1) 20 to 30-minute, company live-stream, content of choice, January 19-22, 2021
  • Product Highlights, eight (8) 2 to 3-minute, live-stream product descriptions of features and benefits, January 18-22, 2021

“Every year we have live-streamed from SHOT Show has been exciting for our audience and hugely successful for our partners,” Glasco said. “While the 2021 experience can’t have the same electricity of the tradeshow floor in Vegas, we’re confident our fans will tune in to see what’s new.”

ElimiShield® Now Offers Home & Outdoor Hand Sanitizer


DANVILLE, Ala. (Nov. 18., 2020) — From the company that brought you the industry’s first FDA-compliant, direct-to-skin scent control, ElimiShield now offers that same proprietary technology that kills 99.99 of germs, in a fresh smelling, alcohol-free, moisturizing hand sanitizer.

Being that it is alcohol free, the new ElimiShield Home & Outdoor Hand Sanitizer helps prevent over-drying of hands that can leave them susceptible to infection. In fact, the company has taken extra measures to protect the hands and has added aloe vera to keep hands soft and moisturized. For a more pleasurable experience, a fresh citrus scent has also been added to the formula.
Unlike other hand sanitizers on the market, the ElimiShield product does not soak into the blood system. It also doesn’t need to be reapplied constantly throughout the day like regular hand sanitizers because it bonds to the outer layer of the skin and is both sweat resistant and wash resistant.
“ElimiShield is a trusted name in scent and germ control,” said Tommy Lancaster, COO. “We offer the very best products on the market that stop the spread of germs and our new Home & Outdoor Hand Sanitizer is ideal for everyday use by virtually everybody.”
The new ElimiShield Home & Outdoor Sanitizer is available at retailers nationwide and conveniently online at
www.hssvest.com and Amazon. The suggested retail price is $12.99 standard 200 ml size or $5.99 for the convenient 50 ml travel size.
About ElimiShield Scent Control Technology
Human odor is caused by bacteria feeding on dead or dying skin cells. The patented, proprietary, nanotechnology formula in some of the ElimiShield HUNT products form a long-term bond when applied and leave a microscopically abrasive shield that eliminates odor-causing particles on contact. This mechanism is far superior to other methods that either poison bacteria or attempt to absorb human odors after they form. In addition to the nanotechnology, certain ElimiShield products include bio-based ingredients to neutralize malodors that are encountered in the field, ensuring all surfaces remain scent-free. Hunter Safety System, the industry leader in treestand safety, is the exclusive distributor of ElimiShield HUNT products to the outdoor industry. For information on this line, contact Hunter Safety System, 8237 Danville Road, Danville, AL 35619; call toll-free 256-773-7732; or visit

Shield Republic Offers Apparel and Drinkware for Blue-Collar Americans

Shield Republic Offers Apparel and Drinkware for Blue-Collar Americans

After years of steady growth, the company refuses to be influenced by political correctness.

Smithfield, NC (November 18, 2020) – Shield Republic was founded in 2016 by Barrett Johnson and Ryan Carter, who grew up in North Carolina, to perpetuate the duo’s core values: honor, courage and commitment, while standing proud for freedom and liberty.

All of the creative and fresh apparel, hats and drinkware made by Shield Republic embody the spirit of American pride, with many displaying strong support for the Second Amendment-and everything is designed in-house and manufactured in the U.S.

“We wanted to bring a general voice to the blue-collar American,” says co-founder Ryan Carter. “And to give them something they can wear and feel proud of while putting out products that aren’t going to be influenced by what’s considered politically correct.”

Shield Republic is also deeply involved in charity work, recently creating a 5013c, the Shield Republic Foundation. Since 2016, Shield Republic has donated about $700,000 to fallen first responders’ families via sales of custom products. The bulk has been generated in 2020 during the pandemic-driven e-commerce spike.

“Shield Republic is a bit edgier than other companies out there in this space, we’re a little more vocal and uncompromising, in a way,” co-founder Ryan Carter says. “Within the last six months, we’ve seen a lot of brands sort of scoot closer to slight-right of center, and we’re not going to be doing that.”

But big changes are coming.

By the beginning of 2021, SR will have gone through a sweeping rebranding campaign, complete with a new line of products for every season of the year, new logos and a new creative spin on apparel with more fashion options than just t-shirts, Carter says, along with more products designed for women and children. Additionally, by next year, 95 percent of everything Shield Republic makes and sells will be sourced from a local vendor in North Carolina.

SR is also reworking the consumer-facing side of their business to decrease turnaround time for orders. By the beginning of next year, 95 percent of orders will ship within 24 hours.

But even with all those changes, Carter says the spirit behind Shield Republic isn’t changing.

“We are staying tried and true to what we believe in,” Carter says. “We’re not jumping on the Politically Correct bandwagon or getting involved with cancel culture. We’re going to stay in the space where we are and give a voice to people like us, Republicans, gun-toting Americans.”

About Shield Republic

Shield Republic was founded in 2016 by Barrett Johnson and Ryan Carter to perpetuate the core

values of honor, courage, and commitment while standing proud for freedom and liberty. The

company is committed to creating products that aren’t influenced by political correctness and

that Americans can feel proud to wear and use. Shield Republic also makes philanthropy a big

part of its business, having donated hundreds of thousands of dollars in charitable contributions

to families of fallen first responders since the company was founded. For more about Shield

RAFAEL AT DX KOREA 2020

Rafael's BNet SDR (1)



Rafael to showcase Next-Generation Combat Vehicle Suite for increased lethality, maneuverability and situational awareness

November 16, 2020 – Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Ltd. is participating in DX Defense & Security Expo Korea at KINTEX Hall 9, 10 Hall, November 18-21, 2020.

For over 70 years, Rafael has pioneered advances in defense, cyber and security solutions for air, land, sea, and space, and is one of the world’s leading providers of solutions to meet today’s complex battlespace challenges. The company’s holistic, combat-proven solutions – which are deployed by the Israel Defense Forces as well as by numerous users around the world ‒ are based on extensive operational experience, understanding of evolving combat requirements, and deep, mission-critical know-how.

As part of the ROK’s Tiger 4.0 program, Rafael’s suite for future combat vehicles is taking center stage this year at the company’s display. Based on its extensive experience, and responding to demands from the field ‒ including the need for combat vehicles to move as quickly and securely as MBTs in today’s complex and saturated battlefields ‒ Rafael is offering a Next-Generation Combat Vehicle Suite – NGCV-S – which offers integrated protection, lethality, situational awareness and network for enhanced mission effectiveness, even in GPS-denied scenarios, combining a mix of the most advanced, innovative and effective solutions available ‒ all developed by Rafael.

Rafael’s NGCV-S has an open, modular architecture, that consists of a 30/40mm automatic cannon with ABM capability, a launcher for SPIKE anti-tank multi-purpose guided missiles, advanced armor protection, including TROPHY, the world’s only operational active protection system, the Fire Weaver networked combat system with sophisticated autonomous capabilities that connects all types of sensors and shooters over any tactical radio in real time, the Spike FireFly miniature, portable, BLOS close-combat reconnaissance and loitering munition, the BNet SDR communication system and more.

Another central capability will be Rafael’s Spike ER2 (10km) and NLOS (32km), tactical, electro-optical, multi-platform, multi-purpose missiles, addressing the global trend of helicopter platform conversion from utility to assault, as well as platform upgrades. 33,000 Spike missiles have been sold around the world, with 35 customers and over 6,000 missiles fired in combat and in training.

On display will also be the BNET patented communication system, supporting simultaneous and robust data, voice & video services with multiple auto relays. Bnet is an advanced Broadband IP MANET (Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork) Software Defined Radio for tactical operations. With a patented technology – modular, multi-band and multi-channel, BNET is a net-centric, spectrum aware, system for vehicular and airborne platforms, headquarters, and dismounted soldiers. BNET enables all radios of land, sea and air units to participate in a single, seamless, scalable MANET network. This enables a network rate of 100Mbps, while facilitating the formation of a single “flat” network, scaling up to thousands of radios.

In the air defense realm, Rafael will showcase its air defense systems, including the the Drone Dome counter-drone system, already operational in a number of countries around the world both in civilian in military applications. Boosting air defense capabilities and on display at DX Korea will be the SkySpotter, a passive electro-optical Early Warning System with a high probability of detection and a very low false alarm rate, enhancing the capability of air defense radar detection systems.

We invite you to visit us at booth 10B-41.

I WAS WRONG ABOUT THE RONIN 10MM

More isn’t always better. In fact, there’s often a point of diminishing returns. From my naive viewpoint, I’ve always kind of looked at the 10mm round that way. It was just too much of a good thing. Too long, too loud, too powerful, too much recoil. I mean, any cartridge that the FBI drops because it’s too hard to shoot probably isn’t my cup of tea.

    Savage Introduces Newest Backcountry Xtreme Rifle: The 110 Timberline

    110_Timberline_Profile_Right_ProfileWESTFIELD, Massachusetts – November 17, 2020 – Savage Arms is proud to introduce the new 110 Timberline. This dynamic tack-driver is the newest member of Savage’s new Backcountry Xtreme Series—a line of rifles built to the preferred specifications of the most demanding hunters. The 110 Timberline, with its RealTree Excape camo, fluted barrel, and protective Cerakote® coating, is built for high climbs, long shots, and a lifetime of performance.

    “Our team at Savage is enjoying developing the new models in the Backcountry Xtreme Series,” Jessica Treglia, Sr. Brand Manager at Savage Arms, said. “We can test new limits in hunting and grow our product line to build the rifles our customers want—like this new 110 Timberline. This is a versatile hunting rifle that delivers outstanding long-range accuracy, and it can stand up to anything.”

    The 110 Timberline’s stock is finished in RealTree Excape, a pattern well suited for high elevation hunts along the edge of the evergreens. The barrel, receiver and other critical parts are protected against corrosion and harsh terrain by an olive drab Cerakote finish.

    Like the other rifles in the Backcountry Xtreme series, the 110 Timberline comes with Savage’s AccuFit™ technology. This allows for easy adjustments to length-of-pull and comb height. The 110 Timberline’s user-adjustable AccuTrigger™ can be dialed in as low as 1.5-pounds, or as high as 4 pounds. The factory blueprinted Savage 110 action is bedded along its entire length with Savage’s innovative AccuStock™ system.

    The 110 Timberline will debut in 11 different short and long action chamberings, and the guns will be built in both right-hand and left-hand configurations. The 110 Timberline will be available at your local dealer by the end of December 2020.

    Savage Arms RENEGAUGE Wins Guns & Ammo Shotgun of the Year

    2020-Shotgun-of-year-renegaugeWESTFIELD, Massachusetts – November 16, 2020 – Savage Arms is proud to announce that RENEGAUGE has been selected as the Shotgun of the Year by Guns & Ammo Magazine. The American made 12 gauge semiautomatic was chosen for the award by the editors, contributors, and staff of the magazine.

    “We’re humbled by this award,” said Beth Shimanski, Director of Marketing at Savage Arms. “The competition in 2020 was fierce. We knew when we began working on RENEGAUGE that we had to make a shotgun that was worthy of the Savage name, and RENEGAUGE is it. The DRIV system allows RENEGAUGE to cycle anything, and its stock can be adjusted to provide users a tailored fit. Guns & Ammo’s award is a welcome validation of Savage’s commitment to quality and innovation.”

    “SAVAGE RENEGAUGE elevated the brand to a higher level in 2020, and proved that it’s not just a company that makes rifles,” Guns & Ammo’s editors noted. “Especially looking to attract turkey hunters and waterfowlers, Savage Arms challenged its engineers to design a reliable operating system that would feed 2 3/4-and 3-inch loads. The result was the Dual Regulating Inline Valve (DRIV) system, which is

    a short-stroke piston system having two regulating valves on either side of the barrel where excess gas is vented through radial ports.

    “During Guns & Ammo’s evaluation, we determined that Savage Arms succeeded in producing a shotgun that yields exceptional accuracy and mild recoil,” they added. “Dressed in black or popular hard-use camouflage coverings, the Renegauge is an American-made gun that still offers value in line with foreign competitors.”

    The Shotgun of the Year award is a testament to RENEGAUGE’s success, and exceptional news for Savage. Guns are currently in stock at dealers across the country.

    RENEGAUGE is currently available in three configurations:

    RENEGAUGE Field: For an all-around work horse that can go anywhere and cycle anything, nothing beats RENEGAUGE Field.

    RENEGAUGE Waterfowl: With its Mossy Oak Shadow Grass Blades pattern and 28” barrel, this RENEGAUGE is ideal for duck season.

    RENEGAUGE Turkey: Turkey hunters will appreciate the extra concealment offered by this RENEGAUGE’s Mossy Oak Bottomland camo and the maneuverability of its 24” barrel.

    NSSF Releases Most Recent Firearm Production and Import/Export Figures

    For immediate release | November 16, 2020

    NSSF Releases Most Recent Firearm Production Figures

    Nearly 20 million Modern Sporting Rifles in Circulation

    NEWTOWN, Conn. – NSSF®, the firearm industry’s trade association, released the 2020 edition of its Firearm Production Report to members. The report compiles the most up to date information based on data sourced from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ (ATF’s) Annual Firearms Manufacturing and Export Reports (AFMER) as well as the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC). Key findings for public release showed:

    • In 2018, 11.4 million total firearms were produced or imported in the United States (less exported firearms).
    • Approximately one-half (48%) of all rifles produced and imported (less exports) in 2018 were Modern Sporting Rifles.
    • Since 1990, there are an estimated 19.8 million Modern Sporting Rifles (MSRs) in circulation today.
    • An interim 2019 estimate showed a total of 6 million total firearms were produced in the United States. Of those, 3.6 million were pistols and revolvers, 2 million were rifles and 480,000 were shotguns. Those are interim figures that will be updated when complete reports become available from the ATF.
    • In 2019, there were approximately 3.3 million firearms imported into the United States which included 2.3 million pistols and revolvers, 301,000 rifles and 678,000 shotguns.
    • From 1991 to 2019, nearly 214 million firearms have been made available to the U.S. market.
    • According to reports such as: ATF Firearms Commerce in the United States, ATF AFMER and Congressional Research Service data, there are an estimated 434 million firearms in civilian possession in the United States.
    • There are approximately 71.2 million pistol magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds, and 79.2 million rifle magazines capable of holding 30 or more rounds in circulation.
    • Firearm and ammunition manufacturing accounted for nearly 12,000 employees producing over $3.9 billion in goods shipped in 2018. An estimated 8.7 billion rounds of all calibers and gauges were produced in 2018 for the U.S. market.

    “These figures, combined with the record-breaking 17.2 million NSSF-adjusted background checks for the sale or transfer of a firearm in the first ten months of 2020, demonstrates that Americans have a strong desire to continue purchasing firearms for lawful purposes,” said Joe Bartozzi, NSSF’s President and CEO. “The Modern Sporting Rifle continues to be the most popular rifle sold in America today, and with nearly 20 million in circulation, is clearly a commonly-owned firearm that is being used for lawful purposes every day in America. The continued popularity of handguns demonstrates a strong interest by Americans to protect themselves, their family and homes, as well as to participate in the recreational shooting sports.”

    Today’s report also shows that as lawful firearm ownership in America continues to grow, criminal and unintentional misuse of firearms is falling. During the 28-year period covered by this report (1991–2018) the violent crime rate has decreased by 51.3 percent and unintentional firearm-related fatalities have declined by 68.2 percent.

    NSSF is the trade association for the firearm industry. Its mission is to promote, protect and preserve hunting and the shooting sports. Formed in 1961, NSSF has a membership of thousands of manufacturers, distributors, firearms retailers, shooting ranges, sportsmen’s organizations and publishers nationwide.

    Revision Accelerates Production to Deliver Thousands of Laser Protective Eyewear to Law Enforcement Officers Around the Country

    Revision Accelerates Production to Deliver Thousands of Laser Protective Eyewear to Law Enforcement Officers Around the Country, Preventing Eye Injuries

    ESSEX JUNCTION, VERMONT (November 13, 2020) – Revision Military has ramped up production and successfully delivered thousands of ballistic laser protective lenses to law enforcement around the United States. After an initial rapid delivery to the Department of Homeland Security, Revision received a dramatic increase of inquiries from Federal, State, and Local departments, and Individual Officers seeking protection from this emerging threat. Since July, reported incidents of laser attacks on law enforcement have skyrocketed around the nation leading to a variety of eye effects and injuries, including reports of partial blindness. While handheld lasers aren’t new, their widespread use with intent to harm is increasing, just as is the demand for laser protective eyewear to prevent these eye effects and injuries.

    Revision has been at the forefront of laser and ballistic protective eyewear solutions for the past decade. Standard laser protective lenses are widely available, but much rarer are lenses that combine tailored laser protection as well as military-standard ballistic protection coupled with world-class anti-fog performance, integrated prescription correction and multiple sizes for optimal fit and comfort. Revision’s LazrBloc™ eyewear provides this comprehensive solution – battle-proven by military forces around the globe and now widely being delivered to Law Enforcement around the nation.

    One Federal Agent shared the following quote after receiving Revision LazrBloc eyewear: “After several fellow Federal LE Agents were blinded a few weeks ago at a demonstration, we knew we needed something to protect us. We looked at Revision and trusted the information received. Upon receipt, we were sent to a massive demonstration and had our new Revision Laser eyewear. I had lasers panning in my face for hours, and no one on the front lines with me were injured. I’ll never go without them.”

    “It’s been incredible to watch our team rise to the occasion to respond to the urgent demand from the Law Enforcement community”, said Revision CEO, Amy Coyne. “We have an incredibly talented and dedicated team, and there was no hesitation throughout the organization to dig deep and deliver eyewear to help prevent injury and blindness to our men and women in uniform. Its times like these that we benefit from a vertically integrated operation, were we design, develop, test and manufacture protective eyewear at scale in our own facility.”

    Recently Revision celebrated the one year anniversary of new ownership with ASGARD Partners & Co and Merit Capital In the last year, Revision welcomed new CEO Amy Coyne, successfully completed the carve out from former parent company, stayed open and operational throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, and celebrated record 3rd Quarter performance. Now 100% owned and operated in the USA, the Revision team is centrally located in Essex Junction, Vermont. The focus on eyewear is already leading to growth in new markets, development of new products and technology, and the team is more united, impassioned and dedicated than ever.

    To learn more about Revision’s LazrBloc product offering, visit www.revisionmilitary.com. Military and Law Enforcement discounts are available.
