Ceramic Body Armor Multi-Hit Ratings and Real Life

When it comes to ceramic body armor, multi-hit ratings are commonly thought to be the total punishment a plate can withstand round after round, even if they’re stacked on top of each other.

GPO’s SPECTRA 6X 4.5-27x50i SFP: The Ultimate Long-Range Hunting Riflescope

RICHMOND, Va. (March 20, 2023) — Designed as the ultimate long-range, high-performance riflescope, the German Precision Optics (GPO) SPECTRA 6X 4.5-27x50i SFP has been built to give premium performance for those who hunt game in environments where shooting at extended ranges is often required.

“The SPECTRA™ 6X 4.5-27x50i second focal plane is our ultimate long-range hunting scope,” said Michael Jensen, GPO, USA owner and CEO. “It has every bell and whistle the most discerning shooter and hunter desires in a second focal plane design. And while the quality and features meet or exceed that of more expensive brands, it’s offered at a very affordable price.” With a second focal plane riflescope, the reticle is placed behind the magnification lenses on the erector tube assembly, and the reticle remains the same size as the scope’s variable power is turned up or down, making a fine subtension ballistic reticle with an illuminated center micro-dot for longer shots.

The SPECTRA™ 4.5-27x50i SFP’s large 50mm objective lens system transmits a great deal of light to your eye, while the 4.5-27X variable power range gives you ample magnification for both close and the longest-range shots. Throw in the proprietary iCONTROL™ microdot illumination and shot placement on dark targets will make you a believer. This scope comes standard with DoubleHD™ objective lens technology with fully-multi coated lenses, iCONTROL illumination, PASSIONtrac™ ZERO-STOP-LOCK turrets to assist your shooting scenario. The turrets provide +/- 30 inches/MOA of adjustment range at 100 yards. The new SPECTRA 6X 4.5-27x50i SFP features:

* GPObright: A proprietary coating process that maximizes light transmission through each surface of an optical element. As light hits an optical surface, normal uncoated high-performance glass can reflect up to 5 percent of that light, redirecting this light so it does not transmit through the optical system. However, when these high-performance lenses are vacuum coated with GPObright lens coatings, up to 99.7 percent of the available light passes through each optical surface. Furthermore, when every surface of the entire optical system is properly coated, total light transmission can reach up to more than 92 percent, making the optical image of a GPO binocular or riflescope “bright,” even in the lowest light conditions.

* Double HD Objective Lens Technology: This is the final product, created when multiple extra-low dispersion lenses are chemically laminated to make a single, multilayer high-performance optical lens. Laminating multiple lenses minimizes light reflection on the surface of multiple lenses, creates enhanced resolution and color contrast images, and minimizes chromatic aberrations. This benefit is clearly visible with all GPO products supporting this feature. This high-performance process is routinely found in the photographic market and with the highest-quality photographic lens manufacturers but has now transitioned into premium sporting optics.

* iControl Illumination: This assures users always have a live battery by automatically powering down the illumination when the electronic module has been stationary for more than 3 hours, and alerts users when the battery has only 15 percent remaining battery life.

This scope is crafted from a one-piece 30mm anodized, nitrogen-filled aluminum main tube that has zero-stop locking turrets, precise ¼ MOA click adjustments, CCW click rotation, removable magnification throw lever, 3rd turret parallax adjustment, fast focus ocular, and multiple rotation engraving. It will be available in the spring of 2023 for a suggested retail price of $1249.99.

All GPO products are backed by the best lifetime warranty and service in the industry, GPO’s exclusive Spectacular Lifetime Warranty™. The SPECTRA 4.5-27x50i SFP comes with a cleaning cloth, see-through flip cap ocular and objective lens scope covers, and CR2032 battery.

CZ P-10 Pistols Offer Great Performance at a Great New Price

CZ P-10 Pistols Offer Great Performance at a Great New Price

Kansas City, KS (March 20, 2023) – CZ takes striker-fired guns to the next level with its ever-growing P-10 family. Whether it’s the compact P-10 C, the pistol that started it all, or the sub-compact P-10 S, all P-10 pistols feel right in hand. With CZ reliability, engineered ergonomics, and well-known and new features, P-10 pistols are the complete package for any shooter. Now, CZ is proud to announce the P-10 M has recently been reduced to $299, the P-10 S, C, and F have been reduced to $399, the P-10 S, C, and F Optics-Ready guns reduced to $449, and the P-10 Optics-Ready Suppressor-Ready C and F models have been reduced to $499.

All P-10 series pistols are engineered for reliability, outstanding accuracy, extended service life, and shooting comfort. The barrel and fiberglass-reinforced frame and slide feature an incredibly durable finish, protecting them from mechanical damage and the elements.

The P-10 trigger design minimizes creep and stacking. After an initial break-in, the pull averages a clean 4.5-5 lb. pull. The trigger delivers accurate shots and effortless follow-ups thanks to its short, positive reset.

The pistol is drop-safe, combined with the automatic striker block. The automatic striker block prevents the premature separation of the trigger bar and spring-loaded striker bar unless the trigger is pulled completely to the rear. The partial pre-cocking, even if the striker safety fails, the striker doesn’t have enough power to ignite the primer. The striker of the P-10 is a partially pre-cocked system. Cycling the slide pre-cocks the striker to 60%.

P-10 pistols include three safety features: trigger safety, trigger bar safety, and a firing pin block safety. Together these safeties safeguard the user if the pistol drops accidentally and in high-stress situations. Also, the P-10s have a loaded chamber indicator which allows for an external visual check to see if there’s a round in the chamber.

CZ P-10 M Specifications:

  • · MSRP: $299.00
  • · Caliber: 9mm Luger
  • · Capacity: 7+1
  • · Frame: Micro
  • · Trigger Mech: Striker
  • · Safety: Trigger Safety, Trigger Bar Safety

CZ P-10 S, C, F Specifications:

  • · Capacity: 12+1, 15+1, 19+1
  • · Frame: Subcompact, Compact, Full
  • · Trigger Mech: Striker

CZ P-10 S, C, F Optics-Ready Specifications:

  • · MSRP: $449.00
  • · Caliber: 9mm Luger
  • · Capacity: 12+1, 15+1, 19+1
  • · Frame: Subcompact, Compact, Full
  • · Trigger Mech: Striker
  • · Safety: Trigger Safety, Trigger Bar Safety, Firing Pin Block

  • · Capacity: 17+1, 21+1

Hobie® Eyewear Expands Hank Cherry Champion’s Collection

Hobie® Eyewear Expands Hank Cherry Champion’s Collection

Oceanside, CA (March 20, 2023) – The Champion’s Collection was an obvious name choice when Hobie® Eyewear partnered with Hank Cherry, a two-time Bassmaster Classic Champion, to create a signature series of premium fishing sunglasses. The bass fishing world first saw the Hank Cherry Champion’s Collection at last year’s Bassmaster’s Classic. Following a year of immense success, Hobie® Eyewear will reveal an expansion of the Champion’s Collection at this year’s Classic in Knoxville, Tennessee.

With the expansion, anglers now have the option of grey with cobalt blue mirror lenses in the Hank Cherry Bluefin Float and Mojo Float styles, in addition to the original copper with sea green mirror and Sightmaster™ Plus lenses. Grey with cobalt blue mirror lenses combines the versatility of grey with maximum protection in ultra-bright conditions from the cobalt blue mirror finish.

Making the Champion’s Collection sunglasses available in three premium polarized lens colors allows anglers to select the lens that best suits their preferred fishing style. All three are also well suited for day-to-day wear. Cherry, who won consecutive Bassmaster Classic titles in 2020 and 2021, has been amazed by the durability and comfort of the Champion’s Collection sunglasses and how well they allow him to see what he needs beneath the surface. He also appreciates their value, with a retail price of only $109.99.

Hobie® designed the Champion’s Collection with Cherry’s style and performance expectations in mind and chose two lightweight floating styles that suit him. All Hank Cherry Champion’s Collection sunglasses incorporate Cherry’s branding colors of black and red and feature his signature and logo.

Hobie® Eyewear will display the entire Hank Cherry Champion’s Collection series at the 2023 Bassmaster Classic Outdoors Expo in Knoxville March 24-26.

Galco’s Parabellum 2.0 Shoulder System!


Galco’s Parabellum 2.0 Shoulder System!

March 2023

Galco’s Parabellum™ 2.0 is the shoulder holster system for the 21st century gun carrier!

Using hybrid construction that combines Kydex with top grain leather and Premium Center Cut Steerhide™, along with a refined and updated harness, the Parabellum 2.0 is a giant leap forward in shoulder system design.

Carrying both pistol and spare magazines in a horizontal orientation, the Parabellum 2.0’s Kydex holster and mag carrier bodies allow very fast firearm drawing and reloading capabilities. Retention of the pistol is accomplished with reinforced retention strap swiftly released by the thumb to draw the pistol. The open-front magazine carriers use rubberized passive retention ramps for security and permit a very fast reload without any encumbering straps.

The Parabellum’s holster and magazine carrier components are mated to Galco’s newest wide comfort harness, which is a full 2.5” at the shoulder, maximizing wearer comfort. At the same time, concealability – especially with an open jacket – is enhanced with a recontouring of the harness’s strap shape. The new harness also features an improved, tool-free key-hole harness fastener system that replaces the earlier screw-and-post design that results in greater security, ease of assembly, and greatly reduced chance of fastener loss.

The future of shoulder holster systems has arrived with Galco’s Parabellum 2.0.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) eForms rules of behavior clearly state that –

“It is a violation of these rules to request access to a user account if you are not the account holder, or a bona fide employee of the account holder with responsibilities requiring the user of ATF’s eForms on behalf of a business entity. Actions of this type constitute a breach of system security and will result in immediate termination of your assigned USERID/password form the system.”

The rules of behavior further state that:

“The USERID, password and PIN are to be used solely for personal use or in connection with the performance of your work-related responsibilities if these responsibilities require the use of ATF’s eForms on behalf of a business entity. Use of your USERID, password or PIN by anyone other than yourself is expressly prohibited. You agree to be responsible for the safeguarding and confidentiality of the assigned information and accountable for all activity with your USERID. Further, you agree that you will not provide this confidential USERID/password to another user, nor will you sign on to ATF’s eForms so that another person may access ATF’s eForms in your absence or on your behalf.”

NSSF Praises Court’s Preliminary Injunction on California’s Unsafe Handgun Act

March 20, 2023

NSSF Praises Court’s Preliminary Injunction on California’s Unsafe Handgun Act

WASHINGTON, D.C. — NSSF®, The Firearm Industry Trade Association, praises the U.S. District Court, Central District of California, Southern Division’s order granting a preliminary injunction for the plaintiffs blocking enforcement of California’s Unsafe Handgun Act. The case, Boland v. Bonta, was filed shortly after the U.S. Supreme Court’s Bruen decision. The court issued the preliminary injunction today.

“This order is a victory for lawful gun ownership in California. For too long, the Second Amendment has been significantly infringed upon by elected officials who have taken every opportunity to put roadblocks in front of law-abiding citizens seeking to exercise their Second Amendment rights,” said Lawrence G. Keane, NSSF Senior Vice President and General Counsel. “The order is the first step in what will be a protracted legal battle, but it is a significant win. NSSF has long contended that California’s Unsafe Handgun Act is an unconstitutional infringement denying Californians their ability to legally purchase the handguns that would best suit their needs. The court is correctly applying the holdings of the Supreme Court’s Bruen decision that the Second Amendment is the only test when it comes to lawful firearm ownership and the holdings of Heller that firearms in common use are protected by the Second Amendment.”

Boland v. Bonta, brought also by California Rifle & Pistol Association and Chuck Michel of Michel & Associates, challenged the California’s Unsafe Handgun Act that requires all new models of pistols sold in the state to be equipped with a chamber-loaded indicator, a magazine disconnect mechanism and be capable of imparting a microstamp from the handgun’s firing pin on the primer of an expended cartridge case. That final requirement is technologically impossible.

NSSF testified when it was debated in California’s legislature that it was impossible to meet such a requirement. The patent-holder on microstamping technology, Todd Lizotte, admitted that microstamping is unreliable, stating, “…legitimate questions exist related to both the technical aspects, production costs, and database management associated with microstamping that should be addressed before wide scale implementation is legislatively mandated.” NSSF also provided important testimony at the hearing that the court relied upon in rendering its decision.

“The microstamping provision requires handguns to have a particular feature that is simply not commercially available or even feasible to implement on a mass scale,” added Keane. This is a fact that NSSF has long maintained, and all peer-reviewed studies have reached the same conclusion.

Microstamping can be easily defeated by dragging a nail file over the tip of a firing pin or replacing the firing pin. However, the requirement was certified by then-Attorney General Kamala Harris. Since its certification, California’s list of handguns certified for sale has dwindled. No new models have been added to California’s approved list since 2013, and models available for sale have dwindled 75 percent, from 976 handgun models to under 250 in 2022, when models with similar paint schemes are taken into consideration.

In 1986 Willi Vonbank, a Swiss shooting school owner, announced a special edition set of SIG SAUER Classic Line handguns consisting of a P210-6, P220, P225, P226, and a P230. The finish of each pistol was chrome plate, and the controls were plated in 18k gold. All have the specific model letter prefix preceding the matching numeric serial number. Only 555 of these sets were produced and sold for $12,000 at the time they were introduced. Come visit the SIG Experience Center Museum for a first-hand look at these special edition Classic line pistols.

Double Stack Upgrade

1911s  Parts & Accessories  Revolvers

Hand Built Nighthawk Custom Double Stack Pistols

With capacity continuing to increase as one of the determining factors on what pistol to purchase, Nighthawk Custom is proud to offer a whole lineup of hand built double stack pistols. Whether it is one of our dedicated double stack models, or a single stack model that has been upgraded to double stack, we’ve got the capacity to meet your needs. Chambered exclusively in 9mm, this allows for a 17 +1 capacity.

The Double Stack Upgrade

Any of our 5” Government models or 4.25” Commander models, with the exception of the Agent 2 and Thunder Ranch Combat Special models, may be upgraded to a double stack frame. In the photo above, you can see the Vice President model in both a single stack and a double stack configuration. Upgrading a model to a double stack configuration takes your 9mm capacity from 10+1 up to 17+1, making worries of capacity a thing of the past.

The Double Stack Upgrade features a fully machined billet steel frame and an aircraft grade aluminum grip with an option of a traditional texture, or the new aggressive grip treatment. The mainspring housing receives the same treatment for full 360-degree coverage. The integrated magwell allows for fast and easy reloading while keeping the clean and classy look.

New for 2023, we have just released an all-new aggressive grip texture for new Nighthawk Custom double stack pistols. This aggressive grip is designed to offer a rock-solid grip on the pistol in all environments and situations. Just like the standard grip texture, the new aggressive grip is fully machined from a billet of aluminum. It is then anodized which will give you a lifetime of performance and durability. You can be certain your grip will be secure with our new aggressive grip treatment. No matter what grip texture you choose, the double stack option is a $650 upgrade.
*This is currently only offered on new pistol builds, we cannot retrofit on pre-existing pistols.



Contact your local Nighthawk Custom dealer or call one of our account managers for more information and availability on our Double Stack Upgrade and pistols today!

NSSF Welcomes U.S. House Range Access Act Introduction

March 17, 2023

NSSF Welcomes U.S. House Range Access Act Introduction

WASHINGTON, D.C. — NSSF®, The Firearm Industry Trade Association, welcomed the introduction of H.R. 1614, the Range Access Act, in the U.S. House of Representatives. This legislation, re-introduced by U.S. Rep. Blake Moore (R-Utah), would increase and improve outdoor recreation opportunities across the nation while improving infrastructure and driving economic growth in rural communities.

“NSSF commends Congressman Moore for introducing this vitally important legislation to increase access for the public to practice marksmanship at safe recreational shooting ranges,” said Lawrence G. Keane, NSSF Senior Vice President and General Counsel. “This legislation, that would require the U.S. Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management have at least one qualifying recreational shooting range in each National Forest and BLM district, is crucial to ensuring safe public recreational shooting. Congressman Moore’s bill would also benefit conservation by reducing litter at non-dedicated ranges on federal public lands while also generating additional Pittman-Robertson revenue.”

The immediate benefit of this legislation is providing public access to safe recreational shooting ranges, especially in rural areas. Background checks for firearm sales saw a record of 21 million in 2020 and another 18.5 million in 2021 and 16.4 million in 2022. Those gun owners, many of whom are first-timers, are in need of safe and modern ranges to practice marksmanship skills.

This legislation has the added benefit of supporting wildlife conservation and improving recreational shooting access. Recreational shooting is tied to approximately 85 percent of the Pittman-Robertson excises taxes currently being paid by firearm and ammunition manufacturers, making it a major driving contributor to wildlife conservation. Since the Pittman-Robertson excise tax was enacted in 1937, firearm and ammunition makers have paid $25.38 billion in inflation-adjusted dollars for conservation and construction and improvement of public recreational shooting ranges.

About NSSF

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, firearm retailers, shooting ranges, sportsmen’s organizations and publishers nationwide.

Strikeman is Under New Ownership! A Message From Our New CEO

To our loyal customers:

As a long-time firearms enthusiast and advocate for the 2nd amendment, I am excited to introduce myself as the new owner and CEO of Strikeman.  As spring approaches, I want to take a moment to share my vision for Strikeman and ask for your feedback about what areas we need to improve.

Strikeman is a story of incredible growth. In just a few short years our brand has become synonymous with “dry fire training” by serving hundreds of thousands of customers.  Our products are sold around the world by leading retailers and our advertisements can be seen on the world’s biggest TV networks.  This rapid growth has come with inevitable growing pains – inventory shortages, occasional quality control issues, and times when we failed to live up to our standards with customer support.  Further, as a small but growing company, we didn’t always have the capital required to heavily invest in new, cutting-edge products.

That changes today under our new ownership.  I believe access to firearms is a fundamental right and that helping people train and become more competent with firearms is a worthy goal.  We acquired Strikeman because we saw the potential to become the world’s leading firearms training company, and we have put the resources in place to support pursuit of that mission.  We will improve your experience with us by massively increasing our production ability, investing in expert American support for the first time, and bringing in engineering resources to take our R&D to the next level.  We believe great products are the bedrock of great companies, and in the coming months you will begin to see Strikeman’s products increase in quality as we chase our ideal vision of what they can be.  We have been hard at work behind the scenes improving quality in all areas. I am excited to see the response to our pending major app updates which fix numerous bugs and improve the user’s experience.

There are so many ways that a company with a platform as large as Strikeman’s can help people train and learn more about firearms. It excites me to think about what that looks like now that we can better execute our mission.  Whether you are an experienced gun owner practicing for IPSC competitions or someone who recently purchased your first firearm and is just starting to learn, we want Strikeman to be your go-to company.  With your help and support, I could not be more excited to lead Strikeman towards that future.

BARNEVELD, Wis. – From increasing your effective range to shooting faster without sacrificing precision, the benefits of running a red dot on handguns are numerous and proven.

Other design benefits include:

  • LARGE ASPHERICAL LENS for distortion-free sight picture and truer colors
  • SHOCKSHIELD™ polymer insert to protect against hard, daily abuse
  • FAST-RACK™ textured front face that adds grip for racking slide
