Mitigate Aggressive Muzzle Effects with the AAC Brakeout 2.0 SG12

Huntsville, AL – Advanced Armament Corporation (AAC) introduced the newest addition to the brakeout muzzle device series, the Brakeout 2.0 SG12.

The Brakeout 2.0 SG12 was developed to mitigate the aggressive muzzle effects of defensive-use shotguns. The Brakeout 2.0 SG12 has proven to reduce both felt recoil and muzzle flash for any shotgun utilizing a RemChoke compatible barrel. By incorporating RemChoke architecture into the Brakeout 2.0 SG12 users will be assured of accuracy with rifled slugs and consistent shot patterns with both lead and steel shot.

The Brakeout 2.0 SG12 is machined from a single piece of heat treated 17-4 stainless steel and features a durable black oxide finish. The breaching points defined by the tines of the patented Blackout-style 3-prong flash hider reset the bar for versatility and combined performance for today’s tactical breaching choke tubes.

Lyman, known for their reloading and ballistic expertise, will be exhibiting their three new presses and press kits, case cleaning and prep equipment, scales, dies and much more, including their library of reliable and informative reloading data books. Lyman’s Pachmayr® brand of grips and enhancers, featuring the Lyman proprietary Decelerator® recoil-reducing material, will also be on display.

I’m For Wine and The Embrace of Questionable Women.

It’s Friday and time for a little R&R. I hope everyone had a productive week. Last week we lost an American warrior, Senator John McCain, so out of respect for the Senator and his family we did not publish our weekly shoot-the-shit. It’s the very least we could do to honor his memory. Remember that shoot the shits are open to anyone whether you know anything about the subject or not. You can also make unsupported comments, use uncensored profanity, insult anyone you wish or change the subject. So let’s get started.

Corey Booker

How many of you watched Judge Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings? I watched all three days and I was exhausted, so I can only imagine what Judge Kavanaugh was feeling. I’m surprised his wife didn’t intravenously hook him up to a coffee pot. Throughout the hearings, it was apparent to me that he’s a decent human being, one that you’d love to have as a neighbor, and an active member of his community. Also apparent was his temperament and knowledge of the law. Democrats on the committee, with exception of Dianne Feinstein – way to go Dianne, were hitting the nominee with question that were insane. It was like being asked: “Do you believe that God can create a stone so heavy that he himself could not lift it.”

Judge Brett Kavanaugh will be a great jurist! I’ll guarantee you that Senators Schumer and Blumenthal will be installing  life support equipment in Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s office, jusssst in case!

Senator Booker, from the great Garden State, took the booby prize. He threatened to release documents marked “Committee Confidential” to reveal racial profiling by Judge Kavanaugh, knowing that it violates Senate rules, and offering to be expelled from the Senate calling it his “Spartacus” moment. Tremendous drama with one minor detail, the documents had already been been released the day before. Well Senator Booker… If all else fails, immortality can always be assured by spectacular error.” (John Kenneth Galbraith)

Have a great weekend readers. Enjoy some quality time with your buds and family!

Trailblazer® Firearms Exhibiting at the NRA Carry Guard Expo

The pocket-sized, single-shot, folding .22LR pistol will be on exhibit at the 2nd Annual NRA Carry Guard Expo held in Richmond, Virginia, September 14 – 16, 2018.

Asheville, N.C. (September 2018) Trailblazer® Firearms, announce they will be exhibiting at theNRA Carry Guard Expo for the first time and showing the LifeCard®, the smallest, folding .22LR single-shot pistol on the market today. The Expo is being held September 14 – 16, 2018, at the Greater Richmond Convention Center in Richmond, Virginia. Building on the success of the first NRA Carry Guard in 2017, this year’s 3-day event will host over 138 exhibitors and over 120 seminars and workshops. The event is open to the public and NRA members.

“The NRA Carry Guard Expo is a great opportunity for Trailblazer Firearms to get in front of our customers,” Aaron Voigt, president and founder of Trailblazer Firearms said. “Not only will we be looking forward to the feedback from current LifeCard owners and reaching out to new customers, but we’ll be showing our latest addition to the LifeCard line, a .22 WMR conversion barrel and taking pre-orders.”

Trailblazer Firearms’ new .22 WMR conversion barrel is a response to the demand from customers for a more effective short to medium range cartridge capable of taking small game such as groundhogs, prairie dogs, rabbits and others. In designing a conversion barrel for the existing LifeCard frame, Voigt considered several calibers and felt the .22 WMR would give customers the extra performance yet still maintaining a light and comfortable recoil.

Lightweight Gear Delivers Major Advantages for Mountain Hunters

Boise, Idaho (August 31, 2018) – Planning a mountain hunt? Weight is a major factor on mountain hunts and whittling away every possible ounce translates into more strength and mobility on the mountain. The rifle is the one area where hunters are traditionally willing to allow for more weight. In part, the extra weight allowance is attributed to the lack of high quality, lightweight firearm options previously available in the market.

2A Armament is making major breakthroughs with extraordinarily lightweight, durable and accurate hunting rifles. Ultralight options are available for every piece of gear imaginable. Your backpack, sleeping system and layered clothing are all measured in ounces. Your rifle shouldn’t break that trend by adding 15-pounds to your shoulder. Hunters with a lightweight pack and rifle have a major advantage when scrambling on rocks and hiking through steep inclines.

The 2A Armament XLR-20 AR10 6.5mm Creedmoor in Kuiu Camo is a great example of the perfect mountain rifle. It weighs about the same as many 4-season backpacking tents at an incredibly light 6.88 pounds. The overall weight reduction helps balance your pack and body on uneven terrain. It eliminates the wear on your shoulder from lugging around the dead weight of a heavy rifle and does not sacrifice ounces for quality or performance. Based on rigorous military and tactical field requirements, the rifle is made to perform at the highest level, in the harshest conditions.

If you are hitting the backcountry for elk and deer for days at a time, hogs and coyotes in Texas or simply tackling the most vertical slopes to escape other hunters, a lightweight rifle gives you a major advantage.

Shell Shock Technologies Sponsored Shooter John Vlieger has Several Strong Finishes in August Championship Matches

Westport, Conn. (August 2018)Shell Shock Technologies, LLC., an early stage technology and manufacturing company focused on developing innovative case technologies for the ammunition industry, is pleased to announce its sponsored shooter, John Vlieger, has had several strong finishes in recent matches in the month of August. Vlieger finished Third Overall and third in the Open Division at the 2018 EGW USPSA Area 8 Championship, as well as fourth in Pro Open and third in PCC at the 2018 Pro Am National Championship. Watch compilation videos of Vlieger competing at the Pro Am National Championship and the Area 8 Championship matches on his Facebook page.

The Area 8 Championship was held at the Ontelaunee Rod and Gun Club in New Tripoli, Pennsylvania, Aug. 23 – 26, 2018. Vlieger finished with 1,620.7836 match points and a time of 180.46. The Pro Am National Championship was held at the South River Gun Club in Covington, Georgia, Aug. 17 – 19, 2018. Vlieger finished with 233 match points.

“The Pro Am National Championship and Area 8 Championship were both excellent events that challenged my shooting ability in different ways. Over 1,000 rounds fired in competition in two weekends can take it out of you and your equipment, but my Shell Shock Technologies’ NAS3 cases ran like a scalded dog in my open gun and Pistol Caliber Carbine. When you hit the road and commit to these kinds of events, you need to know your gear can handle it, and my cases are the least of my concern. On to the next one!” commented Vlieger.

Vlieger has fired over 25,000 rounds of ammunition with Shell Shock Technologies’ NAS3cases since becoming sponsored in 2017 and plans to continue using it.

Vlieger can be seen competing next at the Tennessee Atomic Blast 3 (2018 Tennessee Sectional), to be held in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, Sept. 15 – 16, 2018.

About Shell Shock’s NAS3 Cases:

Shell Shock’s NAS3 9mm cases are 50 percent lighter than brass cases, offer greater lubricity and will not abrade, clog, foul, wear-out or damage breach and ejector mechanisms. The cases offer greater corrosion resistance, tensile strength (2x stronger) and elasticity than brass. NAS3 cases will not split, chip, crack or grow (stretch) and are fully reloadable (using S3 Reload dies) and can be reloaded many more times than brass cases. NAS3 cases have been tested successfully by customers to pressures over 70k psi. NAS3cases can be picked up with a magnet. The head can be colored for branding purposes and easy load identification.

NAS3 is “Best in Class” for maintaining consistent velocity between rounds. In an independent test performed by H.P. White Laboratory (a major munitions testing facility), rounds fired using NAS3 cases achieved a velocity standard deviation of 0.093 FPS (124-grain FMJ bullet, 4.2 grains Titegroup powder, 10 rounds, extreme variation 3fps).
