PRE ORDER DATE 2.25.19 – 3.15.19

Don’t miss the chance to save a few bucks and be one of the first to get you hands on these.
What the heck is a Woobie?

Over the centuries there have been some amazing military innovations: supersonic aircraft, self-guided missiles, MREs, the USO! But none of these can hold a candle to the greatest invention known to a tired and work worn soldier — their “woobie.” Ask any soldier how they feel about their woobie, and they will get a warm smile on their face and extol the virtues of this cherished bit of equipment. It is perhaps the most-loved item in the armed forces.

The woobie is an all-weather poncho-liner/blanket that consists of two layers of sturdy nylon wrapped around a polyester filling and then quilted. They are designed to trap heat and keep the wet and cold out, but are light enough to pack anywhere and use on warmer nights. Introduced to the army in the 1960s during the Vietnam War when troops needed something to keep them dry and warm in the wet jungles and during cool nights these tie-in poncho liners became a huge hit… and not just for lining ponchos. The popular covering gained it’s nickname ‘woobie’ around the 1990s and it stuck. It wasn’t just the soldiers who loved their blankets, spouses, girlfriends and kids back home fell in love too. The woobie is lightweight, remarkably resistant to both heat and cold and dries quickly when wet. It can easily be folded and stashed in a bag or pack. It’s universally loved by just about everyone who comes in contact with one.

NDIA supports defense budget, calls for end of Budget Control Act

100 Year logo_white_redARLINGTON, VA – The National Defense Industrial Association issues this statement regarding President Trump’s fiscal 2020 budget<https://www.whitehouse.gov/omb/budget/>, released Monday, March 11:
NDIA supports the commitment to our nation’s defense and its warfighters signaled in the defense top line of the President’s Budget. This is a good next step in the long process of regaining military readiness while investing in modernization and recapitalization. By all accounts, that top line includes needed investments in personnel, training, research and development, acquisitions and sustainment.
The budget, however, was released without a prior bipartisan agreement overriding spending caps, putting this top line and past investments at risk. This is the result of the distorting impact of the 2011 Budget Control Act (BCA). An example of this distortion is the aggressive use of overseas contingency operations funds, which don’t count against BCA limits, to stay below the caps. The BCA has failed to drive the fiscal reforms as it was meant to do; instead, it has led to military readiness crises, acquisition delays and budget instability.
NDIA urges Congress to immediately repeal the BCA and resume normal order and a rational budget process. Budget stability, and the ability to do real long-term planning by the Defense Department and its partners in the industrial base, should be the goal and result. We also urge Congress to adhere to the $750 billion top line and the underlying investments called for to adequately resource the 2018 National Security Strategy. Our nation and its warfighters require and deserve it.
For information or to speak with an NDIA official on this topic, contact Evamarie Socha, NDIA communications director,

Umarex USA to Exhibit T4E Training Products at ILEETA Conference

FORT SMITH, Ark. (March 12, 2019) – Umarex USA is proud to announce that it will showcase its innovative line of T4E training products at the International Law Enforcement Educators and Trainers Association (ILEETA) Conference, March 18-23 in St. Louis, Missouri.

T4E will be in booth #250.

T4E (Training for Engagement) builds reality based training tools for LE and Military that are significantly lower in cost to operate than other simulation products. The T4E markers are 1-to-1 replicas offered in select rifle and handgun models. The rifles are a standard M4 and an M16. The handguns offered will fit most common duty holsters.

The T4E markers are designed for realistic training in almost any close quarter scenario. T4E’s .43 caliber rounds come in 3 types: paint balls, rubber balls and powder chalk dust balls. These rounds pack a punch, and help emphasize when trainees make mistakes.

The T4E line allows for easy cleanup. This makes it easy to borrow suitable training facilities. The rubber balls are reusable and can be retrieved after use, which keeps training costs even lower. T4E offers opposing force options like the TR50 revolver which will be available February 2019 and the HDS .68 caliber shotgun expected later in the year.

Aimpoint awarded contract for Fire Control Systems by U.S. Armed Forces

Copy of Aimpoint FCS-251

MALMÖ, Sweden – Aimpoint, the leading manufacturer and innovator of red dot sighting technology, has been awarded a USD 24 million firm, fixed-price contract for supply of the Aimpoint® FCS13-RE Fire Control System to the U.S. military. The system will be deployed as the primary Fire Control on the new M3-E1 MAAWS lightweight 84mm Carl Gustaf produced by SAAB Dynamics. The contract was awarded through Atlantic Diving Supply (ADS Inc.) via the DLA Tailored Logistics Support program.

The FCS13-RE is a direct view, Dynamic Universal Reflex Sight, which utilizes an integrated laser range finder and ballistic computer to give the gunner an aiming point corrected for range, type of munition, terrain angle, and environmental conditions. In addition to the 84mm Carl Gustaf, the system can also be utilized on other crew served weapons including 40 mm high velocity grenade launchers, and 12.7 mm (.50 caliber) heavy machine guns. The FCS13-RE provides a very high probability of first-shot hit on both stationary and moving targets at extended ranges and utilizes a very intuitive user control interface. The system can be enhanced with modular magnification and thermal imaging components and is compatible with all generations of military night vision equipment.

The selection of the Aimpoint FCS13-RE for use on the M3-E1 Carl Gustaf followed extensive tests and evaluations conducted in cooperation with the U.S. Army’s Armament Research, Development and Engineering Center (ARDEC) headquartered at Picatinny Arsenal, New Jersey.

“Having delivered over one million M68CCO close combat optics to the U.S. Army and U.S. Air Force since 1997, Aimpoint has proven to be a highly reliable supplier to the U.S. Armed Forces” said Brian Lisankie, President of Aimpoint Inc. “This latest contract for electronic Fire Control Systems shows that Aimpoint has continued to increase our technical capabilities, and to offer new cutting-edge products for use by our most prestigious military customers.”

“In combination with the new lightweight M3-E1 Carl Gustaf, the FCS13-RE greatly increases the lethality and survivability of troops in the field. The ability to quickly and accurately place the first shot directly on target with a high degree of certainty represents the true value of this system” said Thane Smith, Military Sales Director at Aimpoint Inc.

Deliveries of the Aimpoint FCS13-RE are scheduled for 2019. The system will be fielded by the U.S. Army, U.S. Marine Corps, and U.S. Special Operations Command.

Magnum Research has maintained ownership of all intellectual property, patents, copyrights and trademarks for the Desert Eagle while Saco and IMI/IWI were contracted for production.
Besides offering the basic black finish 6” Desert Eagle Pistol, Magnum Research has developed a lineup of Desert Eagle Pistols in a number of distinctive and appealing finishes.

Enforce Tac and U.T.SEC 2019: Nuremberg exhibition pairing more successful than ever

The 8th Enforce Tac, the international trade fair for command, control and operational equipment used by security agencies, and the 3rd U.T.SEC – Summit for Drones, Unmanned Technologies & Security, closed on 7 March after two very successful days. These two highly specialised events were even more closely linked this year, in terms of both location and subject matter, attracting a total of about 5,000 experts from around the world to the Exhibition Centre Nuremberg, about 35 percent more than the previous year.

The two parallel events posted an increase of about 25 percent in exhibitor numbers, with well over 300 between them. Their success was boosted by the fact the authorities are once again prepared to invest more in police equipment, along with a growing awareness of the use of, and the need for protection against, drone technology. With the strong demand for exhibition space, the new area made available in hall 12 and its foyer was almost completely filled right away.

Under the patronage of Germany’s Federal Ministry of the Interior, Building and Homeland, and the Bavarian State Ministry for Economic Affairs, Regional Development and Energy, the two events were dedicated to acute security matters such as state-of-the-art equipment for police special forces at a time of serious international crime and terrorist activities, and increasing security for critical infrastructure and major events through the use of – and by offering protection against – drone technology.

Enforce Tac and U.T.SEC will be held in parallel again next time, on Wednesday 4 and Thursday 5 March 2020, at the Exhibition Centre Nuremberg.

Security trade fairs at NürnbergMesse

NürnbergMesse has established and proven expertise in the security field. With events such as Enforce Tac – Trade Fair for Law Enforcement, it-sa, and it-sa India – Trade Fairs for IT Security, FeuerTRUTZ – Trade Fair for Preventive Fire Protection as well as Perimeter Protection – Trade Fair for Perimeter Protection, FIRE & SECURITY INDIA EXPO and also U.T.SEC – Summit for Drones, Unmanned Technologies & Security, it brings together a total of around 1,500 exhibitors and some 38,000 visitors from all over the world.

Brownells Product Manager, Paul Levy, Goes Over Some of the New Products for the Week

Brownells new product manager Paul Levy has a precision rifle theme going this week, starting with the Skyline Precision Bipod from Warne. The sturdy, easy-to-operate Skyline attaches any forearm Picatinny rail and is so adjustable it seems double-jointed! With Warne’s solid platform under your rifle, you’ll need to make ultra-precise range estimates, so Paul next shows us the Leica 2800.COM Rangefinder. Use it as a traditional standalone rangefinder or take full advantage of its 2,800 yard range by networking it via Bluetooth with your Kestral device AND the ballistic apps on your smart phone. Accuracy geeks love Barnes bullets, but if you don’t have the time to work up your own load, you can get Barnes bullet performance in their off-the-shelf loaded ammunition. Brownells now carries the ENTIRE line of Barnes rifle ammo, including the lead-free VOR-TX loads. Learn more: http://www.brownellsvideos.com

Image result for lined dog cage with news papersIt’s that time of the week where we look forward to a couple of days off. I hope you’ve all had a productive week. The weather is improving and the outdoors is looking great; however, please keep in mind those who lost their lives and homes in Beauregard, Al from the devastating tornado. Take a little time to explain to your children that the world is not coming to an end in 12 yrs. and that they will have a long and productive life ahead of them.

There’s so much b.s. going around, but don’t let it get to you or you’ll end up running to a jackass who studied psychology so they could understand themselves and pay at least $150 per hour for the privilege. The better alternative is to turn off social media, get a group of friends, or family members, together and have a good shoot the shit. What’s a shoot the shit you say?

A shoot the shit is a social event where any number of topics can be discussed, but unlike a business meeting, shoot the shit participants don’t need to know anything about the subject being discussed. They cam make any unsupported statement, use uncensored profanity, political corrects is out the window and they can insult anyone they wish or change the subject at any time without observing meeting protocols. Try it you’ll be pleasantly surprised. However, if you can’t get your own shoot the shit going you’re welcomed to participate in ours. So let’s get started.

If you’re concerned about the new crop of Democratic House Representatives, you should be because it’s quite likely the oath of office meant nothing to them; furthermore, there is demonstrable evidence of intellectual anemia; not to mention a marvelous economy of vocabulary. Of further concern is that other members of the Democratic House are aligning themselves with these individuals so they can get more likes on Twitter.

Imagine kicking-off a House Committee meeting with this…

Translated it means this Committee is called to order

Then, of course, you have House members that think chasing 25,000 jobs with an average salary of $150,000 per year out of town is helping their neighborhood, that the world is going to end in 12 years due to climate change, that cow flatulence is polluting the atmosphere with methane, that aircraft should be banned, that all fossil fuels must be banned, that all buildings in the U.S. must be redesigned to be Green and maybe we shouldn’t have children – folks you have to pay to be that stupid!

Just think, these new Democratic House members are being paid a fully loaded* salary of $250,000 per year. This does not include office space, staff etc. etc.

Making matters worse is a media that not only misinforms, they make no effort to be objective and informative, for example today’s morning headline from the Washington Post

 U.S. posted record-breaking $891.2 billion merchandise trade deficit in 2018, despite Trump’s ‘America First’ policies **

Headlines like these are designed to make you think that Trump’s economic policies are failing. Let’s talk about this.

Globalist policies of previous administrations have placed the U.S. economy at risk; as a result electronics, appliances, apparel, telecommunications equipment, smart devices, notebooks, laptops and semiconductor manufacturing left the United States. The Chinese, for example are doing everything humanly possible to destroy the United States’ manufacturing base. They do that through labor and currency manipulation to make Chinese products cheaper. They’re doing the same thing to the EU. We know that there are other serious issues like intellectual property rights, cyber industrial espionage and perhaps less serious, the poor quality of Chinese products.

A trade deficit exists when a country imports more than it exports. The reason why we had a high trade deficit is because people bought more. They did that because there is a higher level of employment, earnings are up and taxes are lower. When you get a raise or pay less in taxes, you go out and buy something that you’ve wanted, but  because you are buying something not manufactured in the U.S. you are adding to the trade deficit. Does that mean Trump’s policies are failing? Absolutely not! We have higher employment and incomes but we’re not manufacturing enough here. Trump is attempting to reverse that by creating a business friendly environment. One of the positive results of that policy is Apple’s decision to repatriate earnings along with moving some manufacturing to the United States, for example.

If you’re not cognizant of these things you are easily sucked into believing that Trump is failing, not even close! Economies as large as the United States’ are like ocean super tankers, it takes miles to turn them around.

Something else that the Washington Post never discusses is the fact that we are exporting more. This is the excerpt from the BEA report

“Exports of goods and services increased $148.9 billion, or 6.3 percent in 2018 to $2,500.0 billion.”

So we are selling more which is as a direct result of Trump’s trade and business policies. Donald J Trump is not failing, and when you read these publications relegate anything you read about the Trump Administration to cage liner.

On to another topic…

I was tracking when the gay community was originally classified a “gays”  then it went to LGB I was cool with that too. Then they add T no problem so far and more recently they added Q. I don’t like the Queer designation because I’ve know straight people that are pretty dammed queer but hey, I’ll go along with it.

But, what the hell is a +? Does it mean > than 1 LGBTQ

Hey, have you guys seen this video? It is awesome. I think someone on Fox News ran it but I’m not sure; however, it is great and will make your day if you’re a dog lover.

Video by: Andrew Grantham

I hope you’ve enjoyed this week’s shoot the shit. Keep sweat pumps in low speed, enjoy the weather along with some quality time with your buds and family.

* Includes benefits

** They didn’t even have the decency to net out the $891 billion by the trade surplus in services.

PRE ORDER DATE 2.25.19 – 3.15.19

What the heck is a Woobie?

Over the centuries there have been some amazing military innovations: supersonic aircraft, self-guided missiles, MREs, the USO! But none of these can hold a candle to the greatest invention known to a tired and work worn soldier — their “woobie.” Ask any soldier how they feel about their woobie, and they will get a warm smile on their face and extol the virtues of this cherished bit of equipment. It is perhaps the most-loved item in the armed forces.

The woobie is an all-weather poncho-liner/blanket that consists of two layers of sturdy nylon wrapped around a polyester filling and then quilted. They are designed to trap heat and keep the wet and cold out, but are light enough to pack anywhere and use on warmer nights. Introduced to the army in the 1960s during the Vietnam War when troops needed something to keep them dry and warm in the wet jungles and during cool nights these tie-in poncho liners became a huge hit… and not just for lining ponchos. The popular covering gained it’s nickname ‘woobie’ around the 1990s and it stuck. It wasn’t just the soldiers who loved their blankets, spouses, girlfriends and kids back home fell in love too. The woobie is lightweight, remarkably resistant to both heat and cold and dries quickly when wet. It can easily be folded and stashed in a bag or pack. It’s universally loved by just about everyone who comes in contact with one.

As a way of bringing added attention to this precision ammo maker and the highly reliable and accurate ammunition they produce, we are giving away one box of their new .500 Auto Max for every AR500 rifle or pistol purchased during the month of March,” Greg Buchel, president of Big Horn Armory, said.

About Big Horn Armory:

Big Horn Armory was founded in 2008 with the expressed intention of designing a Browning-type lever-action gun chambered in 500 Smith & Wesson Magnum. The Big Horn Armory Model 89, made in America, closely follows the work of John Browning with refinements courtesy of modern metallurgy and machining capabilities. The first rifles began shipping in September of 2012 and since then, BHA has added to their big bore lineup with a Model 90 Carbine in 460 S&W, the Model 90A in 454 Casull, the Model 90B in .45 Colt, the Model 89A in 500 Linebaugh and the Model 89B in .475 Linebaugh.

Two veterans launch GunLamps on Kickstarter | Badass lamps for badass people



Los Angeles, March 2019 – GunLamps has launched on Kickstarter with a modest $10,000 funding goal. GunLamps was co-founded by a US Marine Corps veteran and a British Army veteran, who met in California in 2012, became best friends, and business partners. What started as a simple gift idea, from one gun-lover to another, has developed into an exciting business endeavor with uncapped potential. We’re launching this Kickstarter campaign to fund initial production and jump-start the business Sebastian Calvo, one of the co-founders said.

Sebastian “Seabass” Calvo served 7 years in the US Marine Corps as a Combat Engineer Officer, deploying to both Afghanistan and Iraq. He left the military in 2018 to pursue his Masters in Business Administration from New York University’s Stern School of Business.

Geraint “Gez” Jones served 12 years as an infantryman in the British Army. He is a combat veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan. Gez has written several of his own books and has co-authored with James Patterson. He is a New York and Sunday Times best selling author.

Our goal:

We’re aiming to reach a goal of $10,000 Geraint Jones said and we’re also looking for a $25,000 investment for 10% of the business. Since our founding, we have screened multiple manufacturing facilities and tested countless prototypes, and we have arrived at a quality we feel is worthy of stamp of approval as military veterans. We are now ready to start stocking inventory and fulfilling orders, and monetary support through investors or on our Kickstarter will help get that started.

Our mission:

To design and manufacture stylish, high-quality, and affordable products for gun-lovers across the country, helping them effortlessly decorate their homes, offices, or man caves (preferably all three).

Our products:

Choose between our unique .44 Magnum or 1911 paper towel dispensers, and our exclusive GunLamps product line, such as the M4 or RPG. We have several color finishes to choose from including a black ops collection, and all of our products come with free shipping anywhere in the continental US.

HENSOLDT Introduces the New ZF 1-8×24 Telescopic Sight at Enforce Tac


HENSOLDT’s new magnified optic the ZF 1-8×24.


Nuremberg, Germany, 5 March 2018 – At this year’s Enforce Tac trade fair in Nuremberg, HENSOLDT is presenting a new telescopic sight with a magnification of up to eight times. The ZF 1-8×24 offers an integrated red dot and a reticle that can each be separately illuminated.

Frank Topp, Head of Handheld Sight Systems at HENSOLDT, explains the background: “The ZF 1-8×24 offers the smallest variable magnification in the HENSOLDT portfolio. It was developed for short to medium ranges and is thus perfectly suited for the designated marksman and police forces.”

In this system, one-time magnification works like a red spot sight with a wide field of view. The shooter fires with both eyes open. In the ZF 1-8×24, the reticle is in the first image level, while the red spot is in the second image level and does not grow as the magnification is increased, so it does not conceal the target. “As soon as the shooter chooses a magnification from 1.3, the red spot is switched off and the reticle is illuminated. The illumination setting can be fixed at any desired position but the illumination does not increase,” added Topp. The new telescopic sight from HENSOLDT also offers a detent that can be locked at the null position for the elevation and lateral sight adjustment turrets.

Series production could begin as early as the third quarter of 2019.

Come and see us at our booth 12.0-12445 at Enforce Tac!


HENSOLDT is an independent, globally leading supplier of premium sensors for security and surveillance missions. The company is active throughout the world in such areas as missile warning systems and submarine periscopes. Moreover, HENSOLDT is very active in the market for radar systems, optronics and electronic protection systems.

Low-Profile Light Features Three Functions, Adjustable Eye-Safe IR Aiming Laser

EAGLEVILLE, PA, March 5, 2019 – Streamlight®, Inc., a leading provider of high-performance lighting and weapon light/laser sighting devices, introduced the TLR-VIR® II, a lightweight, compact rail-mounted tactical light with a high intensity white LED, an integrated infrared (IR) LED illuminator, and Class 1 “Eye Safe” IR aiming laser with windage and elevation adjustment controls. The new light securely fits all long guns with MIL-STD-1913 rails and M17/M18 pistols.

The TLR-VIR II enables users to easily toggle easily between bright light and the IR illuminator/laser. This feature allows military and law enforcement personnel to remain in a proper firing position when making the transition from IR mode to white light, and vice versa.  The light features a three-position mode rear selector switch, including IR illumination/IR laser, Safe Off (to prevent accidental turn-on), and visible illumination, that enables users to keep hands away from the muzzle during mode selection.

“The TLR-VIR II gives soldiers and first responders the ultimate in tactical lighting flexibility,” said Streamlight President Ray Sharrah. “With its high intensity white light and a long-running IR illuminator and Eye Safe IR laser for optimizing night vision, it’s an essential tool for those deploying with weapon lights.”

The new light, which is powered by a single CR123A lithium battery, uses the latest in LED technology for ultra-bright visible light, providing 5,000 candela, 300 lumens and a 1.5 hour run time.  For IR lighting, the TLR-VIR II uses an 850-nanometer LED emitter with 600mW/sr radiant intensity, providing optimum illumination when using night vision equipment; it delivers a run time of 12 hours. Its IR aiming laser has fully adjustable windage and elevation settings.

The TLR-VIR II has an ambidextrous momentary/steady on-off switch.  Like other TLR® models, the light has a rail clamp that can be easily attached and tightened with one hand, without the use of tools. The IR illumination/laser mode selection also features a tactile indicator on the light housing for switching modes with ease.

The TLR-VIR II is constructed from machined aircraft aluminum, with an anodized finish body and a high-impact, chemically resistant polymer black switch housing. The compact light weighs only 3.82 ounces and measures 3.30 inches long and 1.40 inches high. It uses a high temperature, shock-mounted, impact-resistant Borofloat glass lens. It is available in black and coyote.

Featuring extensively live-fire tested construction, the TLR-VIR II has an IPX7 rated design for waterproof operation to 1 meter for 30 minutes. It has an MSRP of $600.00.

Start your Morning With Liberal Tears, By Black Rifle Coffee!

Bet you didn’t know that Liberal Tears tasted so great or that they had contained so much caffeine. Well, these tears are not harvested from just any Liberals. We stay away from the acidic tears of CA, IL, DC and MA.

We also avoid tears from places like Detroit where the water sucks. We only curate tears from millennial coffee shop baristas in the heartland.

Tears are usually harvested just moments after a POTUS State of the Union to preserve freshness.

How to reduce noise on your HF radio

    When using an HF radio, sometimes you may find there’s a lot of background noise on the line. Depending on the severity of the problem, this can make clear communications difficult. That said, background noise can be managed by controlling the source of the noise, or even removed if using an HF transceiver with noise-reduction technology like the Barrett 4050 HF SDR.

    So, how can you reduce the noise on your HF radio?

    Reducing HF radio noise

    There are a number of things that can increase the background noise on an HF radio. The key to reducing it, therefore, is eliminating or minimizing as many of the interfering signals as possible.

    A frequent offender is electronics. Laptops, televisions and even appliances like fridges can produce electronic interference that shows up in the form unwanted radio noise. A good way to test if you’re getting interference of this kind is by unplugging things one by one and seeing if the noise floor on your radio drops.

    Electronics like laptops can produce electronic interference that causes noise on your radio.

    It’s important to note that natural weather events can also increase the noise on a radio. Thunderstorms are notorious for it, because the electrical energy being discharged creates radio waves that are reflected off the ionosphere; a thunderstorm even thousands of kilometers away can interfere. Radio noise, therefore, is not always something you can control by removing the source.

    The Barrett solution

    The best way to combat noise is to use a transceiver with noise-reduction technology. Barrett Communication’s 4050 HF SDR transceiver uses digital signal processing (DSP) to remove the background noise from the signal you want to hear. In simple terms, DSP converts the analog signal into a digital one, and from there filters out the unwanted parts. Voice quality is greatly improved as a result, making clear and effective communication possible without the necessity of finding and removing every potential source of interference.

    The 4050 HF SDR has many other features that make it the centerpiece of Barrett’s commercial radio line:

    • Intuitive touch-screen interface.
    • Wireless operation possible with iOS, Android and Windows devices.
    • USB connection for transceiver programming, key fill and cloning.
    • Digital Voice and Secure Digital Voice.
    • Superior receiver performance.
    • Low current consumption.

    For more information on our 4050 HF SDR transceiver,get in touch with the team today.
