Lyons Falls, NY: Otis Technology is pleased to announce its support of Clear Path for Veterans, specifically its Dogs2Vets program. Dogs2Vets is a veteran program designed for those service members with service connected PTS/MST disability desiring a service or emotional support animal training.

Military Artificial Intelligence (AI) market set to grow to $7,453m in 2018, says new study

PR_28861Increased interest in artificial intelligence as a concept among governments and intelligence agencies arising out of increased cyber threats, dynamic battlefield situations, and other security related issues have led to growing demand for artificial intelligence tools in military applications. The concept of artificial intelligence has been used for years but recently has gained more importance in military as well as commercial platforms. One of the most productive areas in the field of military AI is the development of software that can learn and think on its own and thereby give decisive insights. Lethal Autonomous Weapon Systems (LAWS), self-teaching military robots, self-driving combat vehicles are some of the examples of military artificial intelligence systems.
The report analyst commented “With the emerging need of advanced AI software technologies to perform military operations efficiently on their own, developers have advanced the concept of ‘Decision Making Software’.

Mil Sistemika Teams With Hirtenberger Defence Technology to Produce a fully integrated version of Mil Sistemika battlefield management system (IHTA, BES and PES)

Mil Sistemika is proud to announce new partnership with Hirtenberger Defence Technology Limited, producer of state-of-the-art Arc-Fire artillery fire control system. HDT Arc-FireTM Integrated Fire Control System is a state-of-the-art fully digital fire control system that links commanders, fire support coordination centers, forward observers, fire direction centers (command posts), and weapons.

Together with Hirtenberger DTL we will be soon releasing a fully integrated version of Mil Sistemika battlefield management system (IHTA, BES and PES) seamlessly transferring common operational picture and fire mission data between BMS and Arc-Fire systems.

Battle Eye System is a state-of-the-art GIS based battlefield management system. Positioned on a C2 (command and control) level, BES enhances the soldier’s understanding of the surroundings by providing a clear digital picture of the battlefield.

Common operational picture (COP) include correlated blue force tracked friendly situation, neighboring unknown, friendly and neutral situation, correlated and uncorrelated enemy picture, along with tactical graphics, statuses of units, and support for fire control. All this is presented on a digital map with NATO standardized 2525B symbology.

Personal Eye System (Pro) is a personal tracking, navigation and data sharing application aimed at soldiers, police, security forces, emergency services and others that need topographic navigation, tracking, blue force tracking, and common operational picture sharing. PES PRO was designed by the active soldiers, as a substitute for a traditional GPS receiver, paper map and a mobile phone.

PES with Harris 7800 SPR

It is designed to operate on an Android platform and uses global positioning system, or other device sensors for acquiring own position. This position is then displayed on raster map. PES PRO uses raster maps, are which for topographic navigation. It does not offer turn by turn navigation per se, such as Garmin or other navigation devices that rely on a road network data. PES PRO can use online public maps (Yahoo, Google, Open Street Maps etc.), Online WMS maps (usually provided by internal GIS departments), offline maps stored on the device in TMS (tiled format), or offline cached maps stored while browsing online maps. Ability to use offline or cached offline maps comes very handy in areas with no 3G coverage or when cost of data transfer is a limiting factor.

The HDT Arc-FireTM system manages real-time data between forward observers, commanders and fire direction centers over combat net radios using serial, digital or IP communications. Data is sent by incorporated handheld radios via digital communications from the fire direction center to each weapon. All reporting is automated and the system provides a fully digital system that may be used without voice communications. The systems still retains the capability to enable communications by voice and manually enter data if desired by the operator. The systems use of digital radios including to weapons allows significantly faster deployment and setup and increases survivability by enabling greater dispersion of weapons.

Positioning data is provided at every node via an integrated internal GPS and provides locations for each node. An integrated laser range finder provides accurate target locations which are automatically sent to the forward observer computer and provides a high degree (>75%) first round accuracy. The system complies with STANAG formats and fire orders.

The system is fully modular and scalable which provides an excellent basis for future enhancement and upgrade as new technology enters service. The fully windows based software creates a future-proof system which is lightweight and easy to operate. Each computer may be started in any system mode (Forward Observer, Command Post, Commander, Weapon) and are not role specific.

The systems may be delivered as software only to be incorporated into existing or common hardware platforms (subject to minimum operating requirements) in order to reduce logistic burden for the end user.

The Book of Esther

It’s Friday and the weekend is nearly upon us, and what a week it has been. I can certainly understand that you may want to spend some time with a therapist. But, remember that you’re paying for someone that studied psychology so they could understand themselves. Our shoot the shit is informative, free of charge, you don’t need to know anything about the subject being discussed, use uncensored profanity, insult anyone you wish or change the subject. As far as we are concerned you are not in denial or repressing!

Related imageI want to turn you on to what I think is an excellent news source, OAN (One America News). The network is probably the only purveyor of news. If you want to be informed you’ll want to tune in OAN. I was catching up on world events this morning listing to Adonis Albright. Adonis seems like a down to earth nice fellow but Adonis? I’ll bet you he took some flack on that. Those not familiar with Greek Mythology, Adonis was a human male tapping the goddess Aphrodite. Calling someone Adonis, suggests extreme male beauty and youth. So, I suspect Mr. Albright had to get tough or die along the way. He’s a good guy that did a great job with the morning news.

Oh, did you hear the latest that Millennials are out in full force running for public office. I can just see Congress and the various State Legislatures populated by a bunch of people that can’t solve a single variable algebra equation texting each other. For real.


What our Border Patrol would be doing if the President had not ordered the military to the Southern Border.

I’m a firm believer in training. When implemented correctly, training develops skill sets and teaches you how to think through a scenario and the application of learned skill sets. If any of those components are missing the trainee will be deficient. Trainers that teach you how to solve a particular problem are doing you a disservice.

The video below is an excellent example of outstanding training. The only thing I saw missing was a Senator Corey Booker alleged restroom scenario!


On a more serious note, last week we saw a heinous crime committed, in the City of Pittsburg, against Jewish worshipers on the Sabbath. The hatred needed to carry out an act that left 11 dead, all seniors, and 6 wounded is incomprehensible, but equally incomprehensible is the left wing of the Democratic Party hijacking the event, EVEN BEFORE THESE INNOCENTS WERE LAID TO REST, to suggest to voters that  Donald Trump is responsible for stoking anti-Semitic sentiment. These individuals including members of the main stream media  are opportunists and morons. Donald Trump has family members that are themselves Jewish. Antisemitism did not start with Trump it’s centuries old, just read the Book of Esther in the Hebrew Bible. I’ll give you the executive summary

Esther, a Jewish woman and the recent wife of  the Persian King Ahasuerus (a.k.a. Xerxes), is credited for saving the Persian Jewish population. They were being exterminated by Haman, a vizier in the Persian Empire. Haman’s hatred for the Jews stems from Mordecal’s, a Jewish advisor to King Ahasuerus,  refusal to kneel before him. This event dates back to 450 B.C.  give or take a few years, and Anti-Semitism has been there for centuries.

Esther’s story is compelling and George Frideric Handel wrote an oratorio around the Hebrew Book of Esther in 1713; In that oratorio Handel captures Haman’s hatred for the Jews in the following aria.

Haman speaking:

I’ll hear no more; it is decreed,

All the Jewish race shall bleed.

Hear and obey, what Haman’s voice commands.

Hath not the lord of all the east

Giv’n all his power into my hands?

Hear ye, all ye nations far and wide,

Which own our monarch’s sway,

Hear and obey.

(This was a passage written for Antonio Montagnana an Italian Bass)

There’s been a bit of misinformation floated about this aria for Montagnana, suggesting that it was God speaking those words which is not the case. They are the words of Haman the evil.

You can read Handel’s Esther libretto here.

Readers you may not like Donald Trump’s hair or demeanor but the man is not a racist or anti-Semite.

November 6 is a mere 4 days away, get out and vote, the country needs you and your support. See you at the polls! If you are a business owner, give your employees time off to vote!

Have a great weekend. Be safe and spend some time with your buds and family.

Henderson, NV – Hogue Incorporated is proud to announce the latest addition in their line of HandALL® Beavertail™ Grip Sleeves with a model precisely designed to fit compact sized SIG SAUER P320s. “Our customers have been rather vocal about a compact model since the release of our popular full sized P320 grip sleeve,” said grip designer Matt Hogue. “The compact model P320 is ideal for home security, concealed carry and target shooting. The precision features of our new grip sleeve compliment the enhanced design of this firearm by producing a perfect combination of accuracy and confidence throughout the shooting experience.”
The Beavertail Grip Sleeve is installed by slipping it over the P320’s polymer frame until it seats perfectly into position. The sleeve is precision manufactured to provide a secure and comfortable fit. Once installed, the HandALL sleeve’s finger grooves offer instinctive handling and control of the firearm. The grooves lead into a gentle palm swell that has been carefully designed to fit naturally in the hand. The beavertail built into the grip sleeve rises high along the backstrap of the frame. This provides hand comfort higher on the grip. In addition, the beavertail also cushions the hand during recoil by providing better distribution of recoil forces. The built-in features of the grip sleeve provide comfort and confidence which in turn promote accuracy.
The HandALL is built from a long-lasting durable thermoplastic elastomer compound. This rubber ages very gracefully and keeps a firm, tacky feel throughout the life of the grip. It will not harden, split or crack with age or usage. The surface is covered with Hogue’s familiar Cobblestone™ texture, a series of small circular bumps that provide an efficient non-slip, non-irritating grip on the rubber. This model of HandALL Beavertail Grip Sleeve has an MSRP of $10.95 for black, and $12.95 for OD green, flat dark earth, aqua, pink and purple.
Hogue Grip Sleeves are manufactured in their family-owned and operated facilities under the direct supervision of the Hogue family. Hogue, Inc. supports local dealers and encourages customers to purchase Hogue products locally. For more information please call Hogue directly at 1-800-438-4747 or visit

Morphix Technologies® to Exhibit at CBRNe Convergence 2018

Morphix Technologies® will be displaying its TraceX® Explosive Detection Kit and Chameleon® Chemical Detection Armband at Booth #203 in Orlando, Florida, Nov. 6 – 8, 2018.

Virginia Beach, Va. (October 2018)Morphix Technologies®, an innovator in the science of detection devices for dangerous chemicals, will be exhibiting at the CBRNe Convergence 2018, to be held at the Rosen Plaza Hotel in Orlando, Florida, Nov. 6 – 8, 2018. Morphix Technologies will be exhibiting its TraceX® Explosive Detection Kit and its Chameleon® Chemical Detection Armband at Booth #203.

“We are excited to meet the great caliber of CBRNe experts traveling from over 30 countries and discuss current attacks, exercises and research to improve the CBRN defense capabilities with them at the CBRNe Convergence. We are looking forward to exhibiting what the TraceX and Chameleon detection devices can do for these esteemed professionals,” commented Kimberly Pricenski, vice president of sales and marketing for Morphix Technologies.

The TraceX Explosive Detection Kit is an affordable and easy-to-use product that aids in the detection of major explosive material threats and their precursors in a single test without exposing the kit to contamination or the user to dangerous chemicals. It was developed by Morphix Technologies under contract from the U.S. Department of Defense and meets their demanding requirements. It is small enough to fit in a cargo pocket, lightweight and rugged. Each kit comes in its own disposable protective plastic case, so the handler will be ready to use it when needed and is shelf stable for 24 months. With a single swab, the TraceX Explosive Detection Kit detects all the major families of explosive materials and their precursors.

The Chameleon Chemical Detection Armband is an easy-to-use, inexpensive, wearable, reusable armband that can hold up to 10 cassettes, each of which detects a particular toxic chemical and changes color upon detection. One color indicates the absence of toxic gas. When two colors appear in the window, the user knows it is time to take action. Designed for use in the arctic, tropical and desert conditions, the Chameleon Chemical Detection Armband can even be immersed in water. Morphix Technologies has prioritized its product development based on the advice of the U.S. military and law enforcement agencies, so the Chameleon Chemical Detection Armband cassettes are available for many of the high-risk Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TICs) identified by the U.S. government. It has also been approved by the U.S. SAFETY Act of the Department of Homeland Security as an anti-terrorist technology.

Growing closer, staying distinct, merging civilian and military response to CBRN, IED and all hazard threats is the constant theme of CBRNe Convergence. The event is planned by Gwyn Winfield, editor of CBRNe World magazine, who brings together expert speakers from around the globe, chosen for their insight and challenge, providing attendees with shortcuts to best practices. Streamed sessions allow attendees to choose presentations that best fit the needs of their organizations and foster an understanding of how they can bring together civil and military forces in such fields as CBRN, EOD and Hazmat to better prepare for current and future challenges.

If you’d like to receive more information on the Chameleon or TraceX, please contact Morphix Technologies toll-free in the US at 800-808-2234 or +1- 757-431-2260 internationally. You can also email sales@morphtec.com.

Magnum Research Introduces New 429 DE Pistol Cartridge


(Pillager, MN) – Magnum Research, Inc, maker of the world renowned Desert Eagle pistol and leader in innovative firearms design and manufacturing, is proud to announce the launch of the new 429 DE pistol cartridge.
Magnum Research has developed a new, fast, powerful .44 caliber pistol cartridge. The 429 DE (Desert Eagle) was designed to enhance the famous and powerful Desert Eagle platform. This cartridge has a 25% velocity increase and 45% energy increase over a 44 Mag (240 — 6″ barrel). It has a velocity of 1600 FPS with 240 grain bullets and 1750 FPS with 210 grain bullets.
The 429 DE features 30 degree shoulder headspaces and a neck long enough to properly hold and crimp a 240 grain bullet without set back under recoil. Based on the famous 50 AE cartridge, the 429 DE is made with Starline brass, and loaded by HSM in Montana with Sierra bullets.
“This new cartridge was engineered and designed specifically for the Desert Eagle Pistol, keeping in mind that the DEP is known world wide for its awesome firepower and performance. The 429 DE propels that history into the future,” says Jim Tertin, Design and R&D for Magnum Research.
The 429 DE rounds are available in boxes of twenty and distributed by Magnum Research, Inc. Available options include: 240 grain soft point (DEP429DE240JSP) MSRP of $42, and 210 grain hollow point (DEP429DE210JHP) MSRP of $42.
To accompany the 429 DE cartridge, Magnum Research will soon be releasing a lineup of 429 DE 6-inch barrels in a variety of finishes. The 429 DE barrels will be compatible with any MK19 USA or Israel Desert Eagle Pistol with a wide .830” rail on top of the barrel and uses a 50AE magazine and bolt. More information on these barrels will be announced soon.
Note: The 429 DE is similar to, but NOT INTERCHANGABLE with, the obsolete 440 COR BON, but properly engineered with a sharp 30-degree shoulder, consistent headspace and reliable function and velocity.

Sumter, South Carolina Police Department Transitions to Complete SIG SAUER Platform with P320 and P365 Pistols

Newington, N.H. (October 25, 2018) – SIG SAUER, Inc. is proud to announce the Sumter Police Department in Sumter, South Carolina has adopted both the SIG SAUER P320, and the P365 pistols, chambered in 9mm, as their official duty pistols.

Sumter, South Carolina Police Department Transitions to Complete SIG SAUER Platform with P320 and P365 Pistols

The Sumter Police Department is a full-service law enforcement agency comprised of seven divisions with 120 sworn officers protecting over 40,000 citizens.

“The decision for us to transition from our GLOCK pistols to a complete SIG SAUER system was based on quality, performance, and safety. In testing we put the P320 and the P365 through the paces and, quite impressively, they both performed beyond expectations throughout our rugged testing requirements,” said Captain Michael Evans, Support Services, Sumter Police Department.

“Additionally, the modularity of the P320 allows our officers to choose a grip based on comfort without the addition of bulky backstraps, and we are really seeing the benefits of this feature in higher qualifying scores,” said Evans. “As for our detectives, the P365 is the perfect pistol because of the small size and high-capacity which makes it easy to conceal without sacrificing rounds. The P365 will also be placed into service as our agency issued backup firearm to replace the current GLOCK 43.”

Sumter, South Carolina Police Department Transitions to Complete SIG SAUER Platform with P320 and P365 Pistols

The SIG SAUER P320 is a modular, striker-fired pistol available in full-size, carry, compact, and subcompact sizing. The serialized trigger group makes the P320 adaptable to multiple caliber, size, and grip options. The P320 is available in 9mm, .357SIG, 40S&W, and .45ACP, with a choice of contrast, or SIGLITE Night Sights. The intuitive 3-point takedown requires no trigger pull for disassembly, and safety features include a striker safety, disconnect safety, and optional manual safety.

The SIG SAUER P365 is an everyday, concealed carry pistol. This high capacity micro-compact pistol is smaller and lighter than other pistols in its class. It features a high-capacity, patented modified double-stack magazine for a 10+1 full-size capacity, with 12-round factory made magazines available for 13-round capacity.

“The Sumter Police Department is our first agency to simultaneously adopt both the P320 and the P365 pistols as their official duty firearms and we could not be more excited about it,” added Tom Jankiewicz, Executive Vice President, law Enforcement Sales, SIG SAUER, Inc. “The P320 features unprecedented modularity and safety, and the P365 truly offers the ultimate in concealment combined with a full-size carry capacity. The features of both of these pistols is very desirable to law enforcement agencies, and we could not be more pleased to have them recognized by the men and women of the Sumter Police Department in their choice to transition to SIG SAUER.”

The Sumter Police Department will replace their current issue GLOCK pistols with the SIG SAUER P320 and P365 pistols. Local distributor Lawmen’s Distribution LLC in Columbia, South Carolina will provide product locally.

H_RD Slides are Now Shipping!


Hudson Mfg is pleased to announce that the H_RD Slides for our Pre-Order Customers are now shipping.
The H_RD slide is a variant of the H9 slide engineered to allow for the optimized mounting of red dot optics. The patent pending H_RD slide mounting plate system allows a single slide to use multiple optics. Initially, Hudson Mfg is offering a choice from three machined, steel mounting plates for:

  • Trijicon RMR
  • Shield RMS
  • Leupold DeltaPoint Pro


Every H_RD slide will ship with an anodized aluminum block-off plate for use when an optic is not mounted. The H_RD features a suppressor height front sight to use with the integrated back-up rear sight on the RMS, the optional rear sight on the DeltaPoint Pro, or the integrated suppressor height rear sight on the RMR mounting plate.
The hardened steel mounting plates fit over a robust pivot surface and rotate securely into cuts in the slide. The result is a robust system that prevents forward and rearward motion of the plate and provides the assurance that the H_RD plates will keep your optic in place while shooting. The H_RD slide is engineered to allow for the lowest possible mounting surface without sacrificing weight, reliability, or compromising critical features.
If you find yourself running more than one variant of these fine red-dot optics, additional mounting plates are available separately on our

Travis Gibson Brings Home the Bacon at Surefire World Multi-Gun Championship

Travis Gibson, of Caldwell, Idaho, on the move at the recent Surefire World Multi-Gun Championship at the Pro Gun Club of Boulder City, Nevada.

Competitive shooter and industry insider shares insights on the gear supporting his success

Competitive shooting veteran Travis Gibson wrapped up his 2018 schedule at the Surefire World Multi-gun Championship match earlier this month, narrowly missing a repeat of his 2017 title with a second-place overall finish in the 2X4 Open Division.

Gibson won the Open Division and was the overall match winner in 2017.

The match was held at the Pro Gun Club of Boulder City, Nevada, Oct. 5-7. Approximately 160 competitors—22 in the demanding 2X4 Open Division—participated over two-and-a-half days, shooting 15 stages, including two night stages.

Gibson, of Caldwell, Idaho, finished first on stage one, a rifle, shotgun and pistol-caliber carbine (PCC) stage, and crushed the long-range stage, finishing in first place there, engaging rifle targets from 120 to 360 yards. He also had top-three finishes on eight other stages.

The exciting 2X4 Open Division features fast-paced, dynamic shooting. Shooters use rifle, pistol, shotgun or PCC, and must use at least two guns per stage.

Gibson helped design the Caracal USA Versus rifle with a Proof Research carbon-fiber barrel he uses in competition. Gibson’s rifle is equipped with a Vortex Optics 1-6 scope with an MGM Switchview throw lever, an offset Vortex Optics red dot and a Surefire muzzle break. For ammo, he usesHornady 62-grain TAP for close-range targets and Hornady 75-grain Steel Cased for long-range targets. He carries an EMG Customs pistol chambered in 9mm with a Vortex red dot, which he loads with Hornady 135-grain +P ammo. His shotgun is an X Rail by RCI topped with a Vortex red dot.

Gibson has been wearing Howard Leight by Honeywell hearing protection since he began shooting competitively more than a decade ago, even preceding his formal sponsorship by the brand. He wore the new Howard Leight Impact Sport Bolt electronic earmuff with digital compression circuitry at the Surefire match.

Gibson says the demands of high-speed, multi-gun events favor a fast, low-profile muff design such as the Bolt. “They’re comfortable, fit well, and it’s easy to use them with a shotgun or any shoulder-mounted gun. I really like the fast attack time Bolt’s digital circuitry provides,” says Gibson, referring to the mere .5-milliseconds it takes the muff to detect and attenuate sounds louder than 82dB. “Plus, they have excellent clarity,” he adds. “That’s critical during competition. Being able to interact with the range officers, respond to questions, or hear commands when something like an equipment failure happens is huge.”

Gibson says Impact Sport Bolt’s blend of quality, performance, comfort and pricing makes it a clear winner, for any kind or shooter—or anyone else who values their hearing. “Getting a super quality earmuff for the price point they have is hard to beat. I wear these muffs even when I’m out mowing the lawn,” he says. “I’ll put a set of foamies in with the muffs over them, plug my phone into the external 3.5mm jack and listen to music or whatever. Whether I’m shooting, weed eating, running the chain saw, or whatever, if I’m making noise outside, I’m wearing these muffs,” he says.

The Surefire World Multi-Gun Championship event concludes Gibson’s competitive year. He called the Surefire match a “great time,” where he picked up a lot of points, but “struggled on some of the short/fast stages.” He simply attributed that to a lack of practice, and plans to put more training time in over the coming months. That may be easier said than done; as much as Gibson loves competitive shooting, his main role is Vice President at MGM Targets, where he is laser-focused on getting the company ready for the SHOT Show in January.

Gibson (L) finished second overall in the 2×4 Open Division, posting top-three finishes in nine of the competition’s stages (Match Director, Pete Rensing at right).

Image result for acronyms and abbreviationsTGIF readers, we made it through another week and what a week it’s been! We often remind you that a psychologist is a jackass who studied psychology so they could understand themselves. Mind you, academically you’re taking classes from someone who also became a psychologist so they could understand themselves – a compounding effect!

So, save yourself $150+ per hour by participating in our shoot the shits. Remember that we will never say that you’re in denial.

Speaking of denial, did you like the Hillary Clinton and Democratic Party about-face? They were all resisting and calling for constituents to abandon civility until they take the House and Senate. Well, open mouth, insert foot, and some fruitcake decided to start mailing pipe bombs. So, what does Teflon Hillary do? Goes on national television to say that the country needs to be united and that it needs to elect someone that will unite the country – trying to put the package bombs back on Trump. It takes guts, but I’ll guarantee you that the DNC is hoping she goes away. BUT, just in case, they’ve retasked the Brett Kavanaugh witches to work on her. I also thought it ironic that police which they all criticized put it on the line to keep her and the others safe.

For this week’s shoot-the-shit I wanted to publish a list of acronyms that we all encounter at some point or another when reading military documents.

Buck Knives Adds Slim Options to Famous 110 and 112 Models


Buck Knives Slim Series

Post Falls, ID — Wednesday, October 24, 2018— Buck Knives has introduced a variety of new knives to their lineup this year, including slim profile additions to the 110 Folding Hunter and 112 Ranger lines.
Known famously as classic hunting knives, both the 110 Folding Hunter and the 112 Ranger are longtime customer favorites.  Iconic symbols for generations, these model designs are often imitated but never duplicated.  Buck Knives has created a modern solution for everyday carry. The 110 Slims and 112 Slims have been redesigned featuring colorful slim designs at competitive pricing.
These counterparts have been placed into two different product levels utilizing Buck’s “good-better-best” product levels that assign knives into different categories to help guide customers to the right kind of knife. The Pro level features a premium S30V steel with Micarta® and G10 handle options. The Select version, priced significantly lower, features Buck’s standard 420HC steel and lightweight nylon handles. All blades are finished with Buck’s advanced Edge2x™ technology that makes them sharper out of the box, hold an edge longer, and easier to re-sharpen.  All are made in the USA and backed by Buck’s respected Forever Warranty.
This new slim line includes a thumbstud for easy one-hand opening and lockback design for safe use. The stainless steel, deep pocket carry clip featured on each knife is removable and reversible to allow for quick and easy carry. The
Slim Selects feature nylon handles and are offered in black, red, blue, and chartreuse colors.  MSRP: $38-$42. The Slim Pros are offered in OD green or brown Micarta® as well as a black G10 version. MSRP: $100-$110.

Leading up to Halloween, Work Sharp will host a social media contest designed to engage blade owners of all ages. Individuals planning to carve a pumpkin are encouraged to post a photo of their completed pumpkin on Facebook or Instagram for a chance to win a Benchmade Mini Reflex II and a Work Sharp Pocket Knife Sharpener, which was released in June 2018.

“We’re a family-owned company,” said Kyle Crawford, Work Sharp’s brand manager. “For many families, Halloween is a time to come together and express their creativity. It’s also a great time for parents to educate their children on the importance of knife safety, which begins with having a sharp knife. Our hope is to help facilitate that conversation, and transfer those practices to the outdoor activities we know and love: hunting, fishing, camping and more.”
To enter the giveaway, individuals should:

The contest ends Oct. 31, at 11:59 p.m. PST. The winner will be announced by noon PST on Nov. 1.

Corvus Defensio AUG Products Now Available from Steyr Arms



BESSEMER, Ala. (Oct. 23, 2018) — Steyr Arms announced its exclusive importation partnership with Corvus Defensio at the SHOT Show, and the company had some of the AUG enhancement parts on display. The first of those parts have arrived, and more are on the way. The parts available in the initial batch are the Anti-Rotation QD-Sling Attach, the Enhanced Release Button, the Case Deflector and the M1 Receiver Rail.

The Anti-Rotation QD-Sling Attach solves two problems that often occur when using the original AUG rear sling/sub-assembly retaining bolt in challenging environments. The first is the indexed QD cup accepts a standard QD Sling Swivel (not included), which allows instantaneous sling detachment during disassembly or cleaning. Second, the optional anti-rotation feature eliminates the retaining bolt’s freedom to rotate, which eliminates sling twisting after repeatedly slinging and unslinging the rifle. The aluminum anti-rotation device tension-fits into all AUG trigger packs, and the entire unit is an exact weight match to the original sling/sub-assembly retaining bolt. The Anti-Rotation QD-Sling Attach has a suggested retail of $75.00.

The concave hard-anodized machined aluminum Enhanced Release Button is nearly twice as wide as the original release button, and it can make magazine changes faster and more reliable, especially under stress of competition or in wet or cold environments. Enhanced Release Button has a unique wide-wing design and adds just 0.5 oz. to any AUG when swapped for the original polymer magazine release. It has a suggested retail price of $89.00.

The Case Deflector  ejects spent cases forward or to the side, thus making it ideal to shoot in every position and from either shoulder without any additional modifications. Either right- or left-handed shooters can use the same AUG without changing bolts or ejection port cover. The two-piece, hard-anodized aluminum Case Deflector is simply inserted into the ejection port and expanded securely into place via two setscrews at the rear of the deflector. The Case Deflector can be added to any AUG (except the 9x19mm conversion) with a total added weight of a little more than an ounce. It has a suggested retail of $125.00.

The M1 Receiver Rail was designed for the newest version of the AUG A3, the M1. This rail offers a long, solid mounting solution for the attachment of optical aiming devices, iron sights, laser designators and other accessories. The hard-anodized aluminum M1 Receiver Rail spans from the front sling swivel almost to the ejection port, making it easier to use short-eye-relief optics. It is equipped with one QD-Sling Swivel on each side of the rail for balanced and comfortable attachment of a single-point sling. The M1 Receiver Rail also provides an interface to direct-mount Trijicon ACOG riflescopes. The M1 Receiver Rail weighs 4.1 oz. and has a suggested retail price of $179.00.

For AUG fans, these accessories are must-haves, and none of them permanently alter the user’s stock or rifle. These four enhancement products are currently available at www.steyr-arms.com/us. Check the site regularly, as new AUG accessories are added to the inventory frequently.

Firearms Industry Releases 2018 Midterm Election Scorecard

Image result for NSSF logo

NEWTOWN, Conn. — The National Shooting Sports Foundation® (NSSF®), the trade association for the firearms, ammunition, hunting and shooting sports industries, released its 2018 Congressional Scorecard in advance of the upcoming midterm elections to assist voters when deciding which incumbent candidates, based on their voting records, are most likely to support their ability to purchase firearms and to exercise their Constitutional rights.

The scorecard is an assessment of several years of voting records on 10 key issues affecting firearms, ammunition, hunting and the shooting sports. It can be found by visiting www.nssf.org, then clicking the tabs for Government Relations and then Legislative Action Center. The voting records include such issues as concealed carry reciprocity, expanding access to public hunting lands and votes on Supreme Court nominees. The score reflects the voting record and is not an endorsement of a particular candidate.

“The National Shooting Sports Foundation is following a practice similar to that of other trade associations that report on how candidates voted on issues impacting their ability to conduct the lawful commerce in arms and encouraging participation in hunting and the shooting sports,” said Lawrence G. Keane, NSSF Senior Vice President and General Counsel for Government and Public Affairs. “It was clear in the last presidential election that the ability to freely exercise Second Amendment rights and fully participate in the shooting sports was a deciding factor for many voters. Members of our industry, gun owners and sportsmen and sportswomen are strongly urged to participate in this election and should be fully informed of how their prospective Members of Congress vote on the issues impacting their livelihood and recreational activities.”

The scorecard is an extension of NSSF’s #GUNVOTE® voter education campaign. #GUNVOTE allows voters to enter their information and find out who their candidates are, where they stand on firearms-related issues and steps to cast a ballot. NSSF urges all voters, “Don’t Risk Your Rights” and visit www.gunvote.org.

About NSSF

The National Shooting Sports Foundation is the trade association for the firearms industry. Its mission is to promote, protect and preserve hunting and the shooting sports. Formed in 1961, NSSF has a membership of more than 12,000 manufacturers, distributors, firearms retailers, shooting ranges, sportsmen’s organizations and publishers. For more information, log on to www.nssf.org.

Howard Leight by Honeywell UVEX Eyewear


Back in late September, Howard Leight announced their new line of sport eyewear, which the company markets under the UVEX Hypershock brand. The folks at Honeywell were kind enough to send us a pair to review for our readers so here they are. Initial impression:

  1. comfortable
  2. light
  3. attractive
  4. Street price: ~ $10-$14
  5. ANSI Z87+ **

** A quick note on the ANSI Z87.n specification. The spec is complex and lengthy but thorough; anything that complies with Z87+ means that it has been tested for high velocity impact from foreign matter.

We’ll have a short review in November after we have a couple of range sessions with the glasses.

Drone technology has advanced significantly opening up a whole new world of possibilities; however, in the wrong hands, it can easily become an unexpected and lethal weapon. A simple drone can now be purchased, at a relatively low cost, online or in a store easily accessible to everyone including a potential terrorist. ​ The drone industry may have opened a whole new world of possibilities, yet it also poses a potential threat to Governments, facilities, individuals and Homeland Security. SKYLOCK has developed a suite of systems that can be used in various scenarios from HLS, Border Protection, Critical Assets, airports, VIP and convoy protection in the fight against drone attacks.
