Holosun Stuns Once Again with the new SCS-MOS

Holosun Stuns Once Again with the new SCS-MOS 


City of Industry, CA (June 23, 2022) – Holosun has listened to consumers and delivered once again. The SCS-MOS (Solar Charging Sight) is a pistol-mounted reflex sight that features an internal solar rechargeable battery. Not only does the optic self-regulate intensity to ambient light like all other Solar-Safe Holosun optics, but the solar panel also recharges the internal battery.

The SCS-MOS was designed from the ground up to match the form and style of the Glock™ MOS platform with serrations on the optic body that fit flush with the factory Glock™ slide serrations. It also features a low-profile deck, so standard Glock iron sights can still be used with the SCS-MOS attached. Potentially, this optic can function indefinitely with the correct lighting requirements. Holosun’s latest Auto-mode system adjusts reticle intensity instantly and includes an override function.

The SCS-MOS boasts a grade 5 Titanium IP67 rated housing and features our Super Green (540nm) LED technology using the MRS™ (Multi-Reticle System) to give users the choice between a 2 MOA Dot Only, 32 MOA Circle only, or a 32 MOA Circle with a 2 MOA dot. For best zeroing, a 30+/- MOA travel adjustment with 1 MOA click adjustment can be set by adjusting the windage and elevation on the top and side of the optic housing. The SCS-MOS is parallax-free with unlimited eye relief for the best possible target acquisition.

Having a large optic window is important and never more so than on a pistol reflex optic. Built into the 1.93×1.03×0.91 housing is a 0.77×0.58 window. This is a massive window to housing ratio and has helped keep the weight down to 1.3 oz. The window has been coated with various filters and anti-reflective properties to keep visual acuity. This helps to reduce glare, limit streaking and improve clarity when acquiring a target.

Holosun has taken the wants and needs of its users into account and has proven they are listening. A solar charging optic from Holosun has finally hit the market that eliminates the need to change batteries. With the SCS-MOS, a user never needs to worry about battery changes or having left a powered-off SCS optic idle for too long. A battery life indicator provides remaining battery life when powered on, and the internal battery can last for up to 20,000 hours in a worst-case scenario. From the safe to the range, the SCS-MOS adapts to any situation.

Tasmanian Tiger Supported TEAM5 Medical Foundation Returns From Nepal

Tasmanian Tiger, a TEAM5 Silver Sponsor, provided support with product and financial donations to the non-profit SOFMED veteran foundation.

Tasmanian Tiger® Supported TEAM5 Medical Foundation Returns From Nepal

In March 2022, TEAM5 Medical Foundation traveled on its first post-COVID humanitarian aid mission to the Palpa regions of Nepal, providing much-needed medical relief for indigenous peoples in the rural and mountainous areas of the country. Tasmanian Tiger®, a TEAM5 Silver Sponsor, provided support with product and financial donations to the non-profit SOFMED veteran foundation.

TEAM5 Medical Foundation member meeting with patients in rural Palpa regions of Nepal.

Knoxville, Tenn. (June 2022)Tasmanian Tiger®, a tactical nylon line of products distributed exclusively for the US market by Proforce Equipment, Inc., welcomes the return of the TEAM5 Medical Foundation from its mission to provide medical relief to several remote villages in the Palpa region of Nepal. TEAM5 is a non-profit SOFMED veteran foundation providing medical relief to some of the world’s most overlooked populations in hard-to-reach places.

The Nepal expedition, originally scheduled before COVID-19 restrictions, was finally launched in March of this year. The TEAM5 team, consisting of a highly trained medical team comprised of professionals from the USA, UK, Croatia, and Nepal, are all volunteers. Many TEAM5 volunteers traveled over 25 hours in flight to arrive in Katmandu, only to then ride in a 4×4 for an additional 12-hours in order to reach the campsite. After reconciling some political challenges, the team still faced Nepal’s notoriously famous tough terrain. Moving the team from low-ground camps to high-altitude camps, coupled with 95-degree days with 100 percent humidity did not deter TEAM5 members from reaching out to as many patients as possible.

TEAM5 founder and team leader, Eric Linder, said, “TEAM5 is comprised of all volunteers. Members take their holiday vacations away from their families to help those less fortunate. This was, no doubt, a very challenging mission, both mentally and physically, but our team, created from several countries, including the USA, United Kingdom, Croatia, and Nepal, all worked seamlessly to provide advanced western care to those who would never have had the opportunity before.”

Tasmanian Tiger’s Silver Sponsorship supported TEAM5 through financial and product donations. The team relied on an assortment of TT Medical packs, the TT Mission Pack MK II, the larger TT Modular Gunner Packs, the TT Mission Pack MKII’s, and TT Transportation Bags. Included in the Tasmanian Tiger product donation were many of the smaller, yet just essential gear items, such as the TT Passport RFID B pouch.

Andreas Schechinger, CEO of Tatonka GmbH, added, “Our company fully supports the TEAM5’s selfless efforts to help people, who would not otherwise have an opportunity to receive this kind of western medical relief. Tasmanian Tiger has long held the belief that it is good business for a company to respect its employees, and provide for them a socially responsible, and sustainable environment in which to create, produce, and thrive, because, like TEAM5, Tasmanian Tiger believes it is good business to make the world a better place.”

“I would also like to thank our amazing sponsors from backpacks from Tasmanian Tiger, sleeping bags and clothing from SNUGPAK, uniforms from Massif, headlamps by US Elite, Lumidaid for their solar lights, WileyX for the sunglasses, Leatherman tools, The SPOT satellite communications, the Las Vegas Sands Corp, and for the medication and supplies, including the crash kits from Medaire/ISOS,” Linder added. “And finally, we are pleased to announce that we will be heading to the high mountains and jungles of Peru in September. With the full support of the Peruvian military, including logistics, air and ground support, we have been invited to live on a forward base, while we treat those indigenous who are located in the VRAEM. We look forward to your continuing support.”

Huk Icon X Collection Combines Comfort with Technology

Huk Icon X Collection Combines Comfort with Technology

Charleston, SC (June 23, 2022) – Huk continues to set the industry standards in Performance Fishing Gear with the Icon X Collection. The Icon X Collection is the most technically advanced line of performance fishing shirts designed for hardcore anglers who know comfort is key.

The Icon X Collection has paved the way for being anglers’ staple pieces for long days on the water. Anglers rely on the 50+ UPF sun protection technology the Icon X Collection offers to block them from harmful UVA and UVB rays. If anglers are looking for added sun protection, they will appreciate the Icon X Hoodie, which offers full head and neck protection.

The Icon X Collection features a 100% polyester blend for superior moisture management. In addition, the collection is made using the I.C.E. (Internal Cooling Element) technology, which is high-tech synthetic materials. These materials are built using cooling fibers that allow air to pass through and work to pull heat from the skin’s surface for greater comfort. These fibers contain a hydrophobic or “water-hating” quality that transports sweat to drier areas away from the skin to the exterior of the clothing.

The hydrophobic quality also spreads moisture over a larger area to evaporate more quickly and efficiently. This combination creates a rapid drying effect that also cools the body. Mesh underarms and back further enhance the coolness of these shirts. All garments in the Icon X line utilize an anti-microbial treatment that inhibits and kills the growth of odor-causing micro-organisms so anglers can fish hard and celebrate harder and never have to change clothes in between.

The Icon X Collection is offered in many different variations, including long sleeve, pocket long sleeve, short sleeve, polo and a hooded version for both men and women. The collection comes in a variety of colors and patterns that align with anglers’ styles. Huk’s Icon X collection gives anglers the protection they need to deal with changing elements on the water. Huk’s size guide chart helps accurately determine proper sizing based on chest, waist, typical pant size and inseam measurements.

Colt Anaconda Wins Ballistic Magazine’s Prestigious "Best Revolver" Award for 2021

Colt Anaconda Wins Ballistic Magazine’s Prestigious “Best Revolver” Award for 2021

West Hartford, Conn. (June 22, 2022) – The accolades keep coming for the Colt Anaconda!

The Colt Anaconda had already won Ballistic Magazine’s “Editor’s Choice Award” as the Best Revolver of 2021. The big, bold 2021 Anaconda was entirely re-designed with an oversized Python action, creating a double-action revolver worthy of its “Snake Gun” pedigree, Ballistic’s editors gave credit where it was very much due.

The Anaconda has garnered the Ballistic “Reader’s Choice Award,” where the publication’s readers, who participated in online voting over the same 60 firearms editors had considered for their award, decided that the Anaconda was the best revolver to hit the market in 2021.

Ballistic Magazine’s writers and editors evaluate dozens of different firearms each year, firing thousands of rounds downrange in a grueling series of tests, assessing guns for accuracy, reliability and more. They record each in the Ballistic scoring system and tabulate the results. Outstanding performers rise to the top, and winners receive the coveted Ballistic Best Award for 2021.

It is noteworthy that this list does not cater to advertisers—it was an experience-based and data-driven review of the guns Ballistic thinks readers want to own and shoot.

Then, the magazine’s readers had their chance to register their votes for the top firearm in each category, and the Anaconda handedly took “Best Revolver” kudos.

So, what did the Ballistic readership determine that was so special about the 2021 Colt Anaconda?

They decided that the Anaconda was an unstoppable huntsman’s sidearm. The revolver’s premium features include a linear leaf spring action that provides a non-stacking, smooth-as-glass trigger pull. A solid stainless-steel frame adds strength and durability to the powerful .44 Magnum cartridge while recoil-absorbing Hogue grips soak up magnum recoil.

The Anaconda also features adjustable, interchangeable sights for optimum shooting at the range or in the woods. Shooters who want to mount an optic will appreciate the Anaconda’s drilled and tapped frame. The 2021 Anaconda Colt is available in 6- and 8-inch ventilated barrel options, and both sport a recessed target crown for muzzle protection.

NSSF Applauds Senator Steve Daines’s FIND Act Bill

June 22, 2022

NSSF Applauds Senator Steve Daines’s FIND Act Bill

NEWTOWN, Conn. — NSSF®, the firearm industry trade association, welcomed the introduction of S. 4435, the Firearm Industry Nondiscrimination (FIND) Act, into the U.S. Senate by Sen. Steve Daines (R-Mont.). This vital legislation will end the ability of corporate entities from profiting off of taxpayer-funded federal contracts while discriminating against a Constitutionally-protected industry at the same time.

“Senator Daines’s legislation is crucial to protecting against ‘woke’ corporations that use their financial might, funded by taxpayers, to deny essential services to companies in the firearm industry,” said Lawrence G. Keane, NSSF Senior Vice President and General Counsel. “Corporations, in particular financial institutions, have been forcing their own public policy agendas that discriminate against firearm businesses, which are Constitutionally-protected. This bill will ensure public policies are crafted by the elected officials the American public sends to represent them and not unaccountable corporation executives that benefit from taxpayer dollars while at the same time using those funds to deny Americans their Second Amendment rights. We thank Senator Daines for his leadership to ensure fairness in business, reasserting Congress’s role in ensuring the federal government isn’t picking winners and losers in the marketplace based on politics and protecting the ability of a lawful industry to compete for goods and services without artificial and agenda-driven barriers.”

Sen. Daines’s FIND Act doesn’t tell companies with whom they must do business. However, just as companies can choose who they wish to do business with, so can the government when it spends taxpayers money. This bill ensures corporations cannot benefit from contracts and subcontracts funded by taxpayers only to use their financial strength to unfairly discriminate against members of the firearm industry. For far too long, corporations have engaged in “boardroom gun control” to force firearm businesses to adopt measures that would restrict Americans’ Second Amendment rights. Corporations are free to hold these anti-Second Amendment policies if they choose but would forfeit access to compete for federal contracts.

Texas Republican Governor Greg Abbott signed a similar law in his state in 2021 and similar legislation is being considered in other state capitols. Senator Daines’s legislation would bring those same fair business protections to the federal government to ensure corporate entities are not forcing policies that deny American civil liberties through the benefit of taxpayer-funded federal contracts. Similar legislation was recently introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives by Congressman Jack Bergman (R-Mich.) as H.R. 6970.

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.

U.S. LawShield® Champions Permitless Carry in Ohio


Legal Defense for Self Defense®U.S. LawShield Ohio Permitless Carry Guide 2022

Houston, Texas – June 22, 2022 – U.S. LawShield®, industry leader and America’s largest provider of Legal Defense for Self Defense® coverage, addresses Ohio becoming the 23rd state to pass permitless carry, also known as constitutional carry, and encourages gun owners to educate themselves on what this means to them as residents of the state.

Under Senate Bill 215, which went into effect, Monday, June 13, 2022, gun owners 21 or older can carry a concealed handgun without a permit. This new law also means they can legally possess a handgun without a license, training, or a background check.

According to U.S. LawShield President, Kirk Evans, “Even with this new law passed in Ohio, restrictions on carrying guns in certain places like courthouses remain in place. Understanding the new law will be important for handgun owners who want to carry without a permit because gun laws are complex and could place you in a difficult position if you don’t follow them.”

Evans continued, “Education is the core of the U.S. LawShield mission, and we provide our members and other fellow gun owners with the in-depth information they need to legally arm themselves and to create safer communities. Permitless carry doesn’t mean that everyone can just carry because they want to. It’s important to know who can carry, where you can carry, etc. Without having your concealed carry license or CCW, you could be completely unaware that you’re committing a felony. Ignorance of the law isn’t an excuse.”

With its powerful network of Independent Program Attorneys, U.S. LawShield is the go-to legal resource for gun owners nationwide and provides in-depth legal explanations of what the law is and how it affects gun owners. U.S. LawShield Independent Program Attorneys share their knowledge and experience with gun owners with the hope they don’t become victims of the legal system like so many have. They also host seminars, free to members, to help them better understand various gun laws in each state, including the states that have permitless carry.

Ohio law previously required eight hours of training, including live-fire practice, and a background check to obtain a concealed carry license. The new law also eliminates the requirement that people inform a police officer if they are carrying a weapon. For more information on gun laws in the state of Ohio, please review the U.S. LawShield Ohio Permitless Carry Guide.

About U.S. LawShield

Since 2009, the mission of U.S. LawShield® remains unchanged. We educate our 700,000+ members and 6,000+ industry 2A Partners in safe and responsible gun ownership; empowering them to handle critical, life-threatening situations with confidence; understanding self-defense law; protecting them from potential injustices in the legal system after acts of self-defense; and challenging the status quo regarding the affordability of legal defense. Our higher purpose is to create a united community of responsible firearms owners who believe in safety, self-reliance, and liberty.

NDIA applauds congressional Armed Services committees for NDAA actions


June 22, 2022

NDIA applauds congressional Armed Services committees for NDAA actions

ARLINGTON, VA — The National Defense Industrial Association issues Wednesday, June 22, the following statement on congressional actions for the fiscal year 2023 National Defense Authorization Act committee marks:

NDIA applauds the bipartisan House 42-17 vote this afternoon to increase the topline and commends the congressional Armed Services committees for moving forward with their individual marks on the forthcoming National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for fiscal year 2023. We look forward to a 62nd consecutive passage of the authorities critical to defense that ensure our troops have the equipment and resources necessary to carry out their missions.

Both bills continue support for current readiness, increased warfighting capabilities, investment in new technologies, and replenishing critical munitions.

NDIA is especially pleased with the 23-3 vote of the SASC to increase the topline to $847 billion. The additional increase over the president’s budget request will help answer inflation and provide the authorization of appropriation needed to implement the National Defense Strategy. We call upon Congress to find a similar bipartisan agreement to properly fund the defense appropriations bills.

NDIA CEO and President HON David L. Norquist commends the votes, stating, “Inflation is our reality, and we cannot dismiss its effect on the Defense Department. These overwhelming bipartisan votes are a recognition of our strategic challenges and a commitment across the aisle to ensure national security is sound and it remains a priority.”

NDIA will be following closely as the NDAA progresses through the respective chambers to conference. We encourage an on-time passage of the bill to ensure our nation has the authorizations necessary for our national defense.

The inclusion this afternoon by HASC of an amendment in the en bloc package No. 1 to reauthorize the Small Business Innovation and Research Program affirms NDIA and its small-business members’ efforts. The authority, set to expire at the end of the fiscal year, provides critical capabilities to DoD. We commend these efforts and hope to see a similar provision included in the Senate’s mark.

Streamlight Launches Next Generation Survivor Right-Angle Light


Survivor® X Offers 250 Lumens, New Features and Multiple Power Choices

EAGLEVILLE, PA, June 21, 2022 – Streamlight® Inc., a leading manufacturer of high-performance flashlights for fire/rescue and industrial professionals, introduced the Survivor® X, an updated version of its popular Survivor right-angle light, now offering 250 lumens, new features for improved operation, and multiple power options to suit user needs and budgets. The low-profile light is available as a Rechargeable System or in an economical Alkaline Model, both for use in Division 1 hazardous environments. Also available is the Survivor X® USB, a budget-friendly USB rechargeable option for use in Division 2 conditions.

“The Survivor personal light, known the world over for its toughness, compact size and reliability, just got even better with the new Survivor X, which not only offers enhanced brightness and added features, but also multiple power options, including the Survivor X Alkaline model which provides a 25 percent cost savings on batteries, as well as the Survivor X USB which offers an economical USB rechargeable alternative and also accepts alkaline batteries,” said Streamlight Chief Revenue Officer Michael F. Dineen. “Fire and rescue personnel, industrial firefighters, utility workers and others now have an even more powerful and versatile tool to use when operating in the trying conditions they often face.”

Also available as a Rechargeable System or Alkaline Model is the Survivor X ATEX, pending approval, for Zone 0 gas and Zone 20 dust atmospheres.

The new light features several improvements in response to user feedback, including:

An easy-to-operate battery door that provides a tight, dust-resistant seal
A battery status indicator in the switch that turns red when the battery is nearing low voltage, flashes continuously when there are 15 minutes of battery life left and turns green when the battery is fully charged
An improved charge cradle design that locks the light securely in place, while also featuring a quick-release latch to permit one-handed “grab and go” removal, even with gloved hands. In addition to energizing the new Survivor X, the new charger also charges all existing Survivor models.

The Survivor X features the latest in power technology for extreme brightness and offers microprocessor-controlled high and low intensity and emergency flash modes. The Rechargeable System operates on a 2.6Ahr Lithium-Ion battery pack, which can be recharged up to 1,000 times, while the Survivor X Alkaline Model uses three AA alkaline batteries. The Survivor X USB is powered by an included Streamlight SL-B26® Lithium-Ion battery pack with micro-USB port, and also accepts three AA alkaline batteries. Both the Survivor X Alkaline and the Survivor X USB utilize the same battery carrier.

On high, all models deliver 250 lumens and 50,000 candela over a beam distance of 447 meters. The light’s custom optic produces a narrow beam, ideal for cutting through smoke, fog and mist, while also providing optimum peripheral illumination to aid in navigation. Operating run times for all three models range from 3.75 hours on high to 15 hours on low, with 8 hours on the flash setting, based on battery type.

Rechargeable System models are available with AC and DC chargers. An indicator in the charger turns red when charging and green when the light is fully charged. A bank charger accessory that charges five units simultaneously is available. An eight-unit SL-B26 Li-Ion USB battery bank charger that charges eight USB batteries simultaneously is available as an accessory for the Survivor X USB model.

The Survivor X features a low-profile, compact bezel that prevents snagging when putting on gear or equipment. The light’s reinforced, built-in attachment D-ring and updated spring-loaded clip offer superior retention, ensuring the light consistently hangs forward, and conveniently latches to belts and harnesses. Its rubber dome push-button switch is easy to use, even with gloves, and its super-tough nylon housing provides exceptional durability.

All openings are O-ring sealed to resist moisture, including the light’s unbreakable polycarbonate lens with silicone anti-scratch coating, assembled in a heavy-duty bezel. The light has an IP67-rated design for dust-tight use and waterproof operation to 1 meter for 30 minutes. The light is also impact resistance-tested to 2 meters.

The Survivor X has an MSRP that ranges from $125.00 to $275.00, depending on the model. It is available in orange or yellow.

GATORZ Launches New Laser Defender Technology

GATORZ Launches New Laser Defender Technology

Carlsbad, CA – (June 2022) – Gatorz is known for its durability and functionality, and now brings a new technology to its lineup with Laser Defender Lenses.

Having good eye protection has been a staple for our military and active shooters alike for a long time, but not until recently has laser protection become a dire need for law enforcement and other professionals that are likely to have encounters with errant laser wavelengths. 

Designed to protect eyes from harmful laser wavelengths, the Gatorz Laser Defender lenses are the perfect tool for law enforcement, pilots and anyone who can be subject to damaging laser strikes.

Available in popular ANSI Z87.1/MILSPEC Ballistic rated Magnum and Specter frames, this new technology took Gatorz’ high-impact resistant polycarbonate lens, and infused a special light-absorbing dye that is treated to block out the most common, and the most harmful laser light wavelengths. Understanding that there are multiple types of lasers with different wavelength variations, Gatorz has designed four different lens options to cover most needs.

Specter Laser Daylight

Magnum Laser Infrared

Magnum Laser Low-Light

Specter Laser Photochromic

The four Laser Defender lenses include a daytime lens that has a 23% VLT (visible light transmission), a low-light lens that offers 40% VLT, an Infrared lens with 51% VLT, and a low-light photochromic lens that can shift between 40% VLT and 12% VLT depending on the light you are exposed to. The four different lenses provide protection from different variations of laser wavelengths, including red, blue, green, violet and invisible infrared.

American-made, and backed by a lifetime frame warranty, and 30-day no hassle return policy, GATORZ frames are built from lightweight, durable, aircraft-grade billet 7075-T6 aluminum and are designed to provide excellent coverage. Both the frame and the nosepiece fully adjust to you, and not the other way around.

Barnett’s New Hyper XP 405

Barnett’s New Hyper XP 405


Tarpon Springs, FL (June 21, 2022) – The Hyper XP 405 is built around the narrow diameter HyperFlite arrow. Barnett is the 1st crossbow company to improve the “ammo” in the crossbow category by advancing the technology of narrow diameter arrows into the crossbow platform. HyperFlite narrow diameter arrows provide numerous advantages. Deeper penetration, less wind drift, increased durability and engineered to deliver maximum kinetic energy.

The Hyper XP 405 features a narrow 10 in. axle to axle profile when cocked, making it super maneuverable in tight quarters. The short, custom composite laminated limbs provide plenty of power without added fore-end weight for a more stable shooting platform. The parallel limb configuration, combined with a track-mounted string dampener, significantly reduces recoil and noise during the shot while enhancing accuracy.

As its name implies, the Hyper XP 405 is built around Barnett’s HyperFlite narrow-diameter arrow technology. Pairing the Hyper XP 405 with 22-inch, .204-diameter HyperFlite arrows provides a deadly accurate combination of blistering speed, maximum kinetic energy, and deeper penetration. The increasing the arrow’s 21% FOC and 61% greater ballistic coefficient reduce wind drift and improve downrange accuracy.

As a result, the Hyper XP 405 sends the small-diameter HyperFlite™ arrows downrange with incredible speed – up to 405 ft. per second and delivers 138 ft. lbs. of kinetic energy! The Hyper nock increases string-to-nock engagement by 30 percent resulting in increased accuracy, reduced string wear, and no dry fires. The arrows boast a straightness tolerance of +/- .001 inches for supreme accuracy and consistency.

The Hyper XP 405 also features a metal-injected molded trigger and TriggerTech™ Frictionless Release Technology (a $200 value). This provides a reliable, crisp, 3-pound pull for consistent shots and improved accuracy. An Anti-Dry Fire (ADF) system and a nock sensor ensure the crossbow cannot fire unless the arrow is loaded correctly. Finger safety reminders above the generous pass-through foregrip keep fingers well out of the string path, and an adjustable buttstock allows for a perfect length-of-pull fit so the XP 405 can be fitted for youth, women and men.

The 4-5x32mm red/green illuminated scope offers precise target acquisition in a full range of ambient light conditions from twilight to high noon. A multi-position premium quiver completes the package for the ultimate shooting experience. Last but not least, the Hyper XP 405 features a simple, three-bolt assembly, one bolt to attach the riser to the rail and two screws to attach the foot stirrup.

The Hyper XP 405 is a value that only Barnett can deliver. In a world of extremes, they have found balance. The Hyper XP 405’s weight distribution and narrow profile make this crossbow feel more like shooting a gun than a bow. Which is what most shooters are aiming for. A crossbow platform that transfers their shooting skills from one form to another without having to make many adjustments or compromises. Transfer the skills you have developed shooting long guns into archery flawlessly with the Hyper XP 405.

  • · HyperFlite .204 small-diameter arrow compatibility

Philadelphia Campaign Targets Illegal Gun Purchases

 June 21, 2022

Philadelphia Campaign Targets Illegal Gun Purchases

NSSF, ATF, DOJ Emphasize ‘Don’t Lie for the Other Guy™’

Philadelphia, Pa. — As part of an ongoing national effort to help prevent illegal “straw” purchases of firearms, NSSF®, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and the Department of Justice (DOJ) are reminding the Greater Philadelphia area public that stiff penalties are in place for individuals convicted of such unlawful purchases. The campaign is in its 22nd year and is a cornerstone of the cooperative relationship of the firearm industry, law enforcement and retailers.

Billboard, radio, social media, streaming audio and digital advertisements for the “Don’t Lie for the Other Guy” program have been purchased by NSSF in key locations throughout the region with the message: “Buy a gun for someone who can’t and buy yourself 10 years in jail. Don’t Lie for the Other Guy.” The month-long public awareness campaign was officially launched today.

The Philadelphia area “Don’t Lie” campaign includes more than 11 outdoor billboards, digital bulletin boards and posters. There are also more than 450 radio spots playing and 600,000 digital streaming radio service impressions. On social media, “Don’t Lie” advertisements total more than 1.5 million targeted geofenced online mobile advertisements on Facebook and Instagram impressions. In addition, there will be more than 600 Philadelphia public transit advertisements on commuter rail and bus services. Philadelphia was chosen for this special campaign by ATF. No taxpayer dollars are used. The program is funded in full by the firearm industry.

“The firearm industry has always been fully committed to keeping firearms out of the hands of those who should not possess them. We are proud of our more than two-decade cooperative relationship with the ATF, the DOJ and the entire law enforcement community to assist them in their collective efforts to reduce criminal acquisition and misuse of firearms. We’re pleased to work with our partners at DOJ and ATF to launch this “Don’t Lie” campaign in Philadelphia this summer,” said NSSF President and CEO Joe Bartozzi.

“Don’t Lie” is a cooperative program between ATF, DOJ and NSSF, the trade association for the firearm and ammunition industry. The effort was developed more than a two decades ago to raise public awareness about the seriousness of the crime of purchasing a firearm for someone who cannot legally do so. The program also helps ATF educate firearm retailers to be better prepared to deter potential straw purchases. The public campaign drives home the message that anyone attempting an illegal firearm purchase faces a stiff federal felony penalty of up to 10 years in jail or up to $250,000 in fines.

To legally purchase a firearm, a person must be able to pass an FBI National Instant Criminal Background Check System, or NICS check, and fully comply with all state and local laws. When a criminal knows he or she cannot pass this check, they may try to induce a friend or other person to make the purchase on their behalf. This is known as a straw purchase and is a felony.

This public awareness campaign constitutes only part of the “Don’t Lie for the Other Guy” outreach effort. The full “Don’t Lie for the Other Guy” program, which also involves educating firearm retailers to better detect and prevent straw purchases, has been rolled out in major cities throughout the country. In the retailer segment, federal firearms licensees are provided a “Don’t Lie for the Other Guy” retailer kit containing a training video and informational brochure for storeowners and staff, as well as point-of-purchase displays aimed to deter illegal straw purchases.

SPICE250 ER (002)

ILA 2022


June 21, 2022: In light of the growing security threats in Europe, DIEHL Defence and RAFAEL are strengthening their partnership by introducing for the first time the recently-unveiled SPICE 250 ER, alongside the gliding SPICE 250 as a system intended to be manufactured in Germany by DIEHL Defence.

SPICE 250 is the smallest of the SPICE Family, which includes the SPICE 250, SPICE 1000, and SPICE 2000. SPICE is a stand-off, air-to-surface weapon system that strikes targets with pinpoint accuracy and at high attack volumes, independent of GPS, by applying scene-matching algorithms. SPICE is combat-proven and in service with the IAF and with a number of international customers.

SPICE 250 ER preserves the same characteristics of the SPICE 250, incorporating a small turbojet engine to provide substantial range extension, enabling stand-off range for the modern dynamic battle field and new advanced SAM threats, while retaining the same mission-planning system, aircraft interfaces, and aircrew operation. This combines the advantages of both variants (gliding and propelled) while significantly decreasing the integration effort.

The SPICE 250 and the ER variant deliver a unique array of homing modes which maximize mission success rate while minimizing collateral damage. They also incorporate a net-enabled digital data link which allows a Human-in-the-Loop capability, abort-mission command, and BDI.

The combination of increased loadout of SPICE 250 variants, unique homing methods for various scenarios, and extended range enables a high volume and precise strike capability against multiple target types at reduced cost.

If there is one company that can accurately be described as a stunning success is New York based OTIS Technology. This woman-owned business began life in 1985 focused on gun care products, now a leading DOD supplier the company has grown over the years through innovation and perspiration. Today, they continue to deliver the best gun care products on the market but didn’t stop there adding two subsidiaries to their portfolio: Shooter’s Choice, DRD Tactical, LLC. OTIS Tech recently introduced electronic hearing protection that I’ll be reviewing for readers in July.

US and Indonesian air forces commence exercise Cope West 22.

U.S., Indonesian Air Forces Conclude Exercise Cope West 2018 > U.S.  Department of Defense > Defense Department News

The latest iteration of the exercise is being conducted at Abdulrachman Saleh Air Force Base (AFB) in Malang, Indonesia. The US Air Force (USAF) and the Indonesian Air Force have commenced a bilateral tactical airlift exercise called Cope West 22 (CW22) in Indonesia. The exercise is being conducted at Abdulrachman Saleh Air Force Base (AFB) in Malang and will run from 17 to 24 June. Around 70 service members from the USAF’s 374th Airlift Wing (AW) from Yokota AFB in Japan will be participating in this exercise. The USAF’s two C-130 Hercules aircraft from Yokota AFB along with two C-130s from the Indonesian Air Force will also be a part of the latest iteration. 36th Airlift Squadron commander lieutenant colonel Kira Coffey said: “Cope West allows us to strengthen our partnership with one of our most valuable partners in South-East Asia. “This year, we are focused on developing and expanding our combined airlift capabilities with the Indonesian Air Force.”

US and Indonesian contingents will participate in personnel and equipment airdrop, rigging, formation, all-weather and night flight operations, among other capabilities integral to a variety of bilateral missions.

Coffey added: “The tactics, techniques, and procedures we exchange with the Indonesian Air Force in Cope West help prepare us for a real-life event in which we will have to work together to secure common interests.

“We are going to ‘practise how we would play’ and be stronger as a result.”

Cope West was first conducted in 1989, and this is the ninth time that the tactical airlift exercise is being hosted in Indonesia.

A1A is associated with Florida’s beach culture, known for some of the most coveted fishing destinations in the world as it stretches along the Atlantic Ocean from Jacksonville south to Key West.

The A1A line can handle all-day wear thanks to its anti-microbial fabric, which helps keep the garment fresher longer, featuring key design elements and Huk’s innovative design.
