Steinel Ammunition Fourth of July Promo on 44 Magnum 320 gr. WLNGC and 44 S&W Special Self Defense Ammo

Kick off your summer with Steinel Ammo’s limited-time sale on one of America’s favorite 44 rounds for hunting or self-defense.

Twinsburg, Ohio (July 2019) – Nothing is more American than the 44 magnum round for hog hunting or other hard-to-stop game, and this year, Steinel Ammunition is celebrating America’s birthday with a limited-time sale on their best-selling 44 Magnum 320 gr. hard cast WLNGC rounds. But, before Elmer Keith invented the 44 Magnum for its stopping power, there was the 44 Special and Steinel Ammunition is including their 44 S&W Special short barrel formula in 200 gr. Gold Dot hollow point bullets in their July holiday promotion for concealed carry civilian customers.

From July 4 – 7, 2019, Steinel Ammunition will be offering a 10% percent discount on all orders of their specially developed hunting 44 Magnum 320 gr. rounds. For personal protection, Steinel Ammunition is offering 15% on their 44 Special Self Defense rounds during the same 4-day holiday sale.

“America has had a love affair with the 44 Magnum round since the 1950s and became a Hollywood icon thanks to movies like Dirty Harry,” Andy Steinel, president of Steinel Ammunition, commented. “Our take on the classic 44 Magnum provides all the attributes 44 Magnum fans appreciate like superior stopping power and accuracy but less felt recoil and cleaner barrels with less lead buildup.

The 44 Magnum is a superior hunting round, powerful enough to stop a tough-skinned big animal, such as North American bears and feral hogs. Backcountry and big game hunters typically carry back up pistols and revolvers in case of a bear attack in camp or afield and the Steinel Ammo 44 Magnum 320 gr. has the penetration ability to put a stop to any bear attack. As a hunting round in itself, the Steinel Ammo 44 Magnum’s combined penetration and little to no deflection makes it an effective and humane round for bear, elk, bison and other American and African big game.

With over five million wild hogs in 35 states in the US, hog hunting has increased in popularity and precedence as the wild hog population takes its toll on farmland, forests, ranches and even invading suburban communities. Feral hogs often compete with wildlife and livestock for food and land and prey on young livestock and wildlife. Many states allow for year-round hunting in an effort to manage the wild boars (which can exceed 500 pounds) and the feral sows and their young. Whether for the ultimate in hunting large, thick-skinned game, Steinel Ammo’s 44 Magnum 320 gr. hard cast WLNGC rounds offer consistent, reliable, and highly accurate performance.

America’s love affair with the snub-nosed revolver has gained traction as more states legalize conceal carry. Law enforcement and military officers have long used “snubbies” as effective back up weapons and continue to use them today. With Elmer Keith’s development of the Magnum 44, the S&W Special began to fall out of favor. But with the rise of CCW licenses across the country, the old stand-by has been reinvigorated and finding new fans. Firearms manufacturers are increasing their offerings in this defensive round to include Charter Arms, Taurus, Ruger and Colt. Customers find the 44 Special similar to the popular 45 ACP, and as opposed to the 44 Magnum, the 44 Special offers less recoil and less flash.

Steinel Ammunition’s limited time offer on the 44 Magnum and 44 Special runs July 4 – 7, 2019. Order http://www.steinelammo.com.

Morphix Technologies® to Exhibit at Warrior® Expo East

Morphix Technologies® will be displaying its TraceX® Explosive Detection Kit and Chameleon® Chemical Detection Armband at Booth #1407 in Virginia Beach, Virginia July 10 – 11, 2019.

Morphix Warrior Expo

Virginia Beach, Va. (July 2019) – Morphix Technologies®, an innovator in the science of detection devices for dangerous chemicals, will be exhibiting at Warrior® Expo East, July 10 – 11, 2019 at the Virginia Beach Convention Center in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Morphix Technologies will be exhibiting its TraceX® Explosive Detection Kit and its Chameleon® Chemical Detection Armband at Booth #1407.

“We exhibited earlier this year at Warrior Expo West in San Diego and are happy to be back at Warrior Expo East, held right here in Virginia Beach. These are great events that bring together end users, program managers and procurement specialists in one place. We are looking forward to exhibiting what the TraceX and Chameleon detection devices can do to help our warfighters and First Responders complete their missions,” 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.

Warrior Expo East is designed specifically for government and defense organizations to receive a crash course in cutting-edge gear and the most cost-effective support solutions from hundreds of hand-selected exhibitors over two days. It is far more than a simple trade show – it’s the defense industry’s one-stop-shop for industry networking, customized training, and product demonstrations. The Expo attracts 300+ industry suppliers and more than 3,000 vetted attendees, including active duty military, federal, state and local government agencies, law enforcement, first responders, qualified defense or government contractors and exhibiting partner suppliers or manufacturers.

If you’d like to receive more information about our products, 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.

Bushnell CORE and CORE DS Take Trail Cameras to the Peak of Performance

Bushnell’s CORE DS Technology Is Optimized for Day AND Night
OVERLAND PARK, Kansas – July 2, 2019 – Bushnell, the industry leader in trail cameras, offers even greater performance with the CORE and CORE DS trail camera lines.
Now shipping across the Country, every CORE Trail Camera is built with a suite of features inside that reveal more of the tough world outside. Crafted with more speed and range to capture more useful images, and industry-leading battery life, CORE trail cameras give users more options for preset or custom settings to maximize each camera for any situation. All of that comes standard with the reliability of Bushnell.
Taking it to the next level, the new CORE DS offers advanced technology for hunters and game managers who want the best image quality in every condition. Most trail cameras use only one image sensor to capture images 24 hours a day. Users must settle for daytime images that are less sharp and rich, or nighttime images that lack consistent illumination and range. CORE Dual Sensor (DS) Technology gives users two image sensors — one optimized for sharp and rich images during the day and another optimized for images with consistent and further illumination at night.
“Good trail cams take great pictures during the day,” explained Bushnell Product Manager Steve Smith. “Better trail cams take great pictures at night. Bushnell’s CORE Cam DS with Dual Sensor technology does both. With two sensors – one optimized for sharper day pics, one for more detail and contrast at night – the CORE DS leads the pack night and day. Now, finding the best trail camera is as simple as: Good. Better. Bushnell.”
CORE Trail Cameras offer 24 megapixel performance and come in Low Glow and No Glow models. The CORE Low Glow offers 100-foot night range, while the stealthy CORE No Glow produces an 80-foot range with nearly invisible black LEDs. Both cameras feature .3 second trigger speed, 1-second recovery and 1080p at 30 fps video with audio. A removable battery tray holds 6AA batteries providing up to 1-year battery life.
CORE DS models offer 30 megapixel performance and also come in Low Glow and No Glow models. Both cameras feature .2 second trigger speed, .6-second recovery and 1080p at 60 fps video with audio. An in-camera color LCD and the exclusive Dual Sensor Technology make the CORE DS Low Glow and No Glow the most technologically advanced trail cameras on the market today.

Tasmanian Tiger® TT TAC Modular Pack 30 Vent Receives GOLD Score in the 2019 NTOA Member Tested and Recommended Program with Overall Score of 4.78 out of 5

 

Field tested and recommended by law enforcement officers in the National Tactical Officers Association (NTOA) Member Tested and Recommended Program.

Miramar, Fla. (July 2019)Tasmanian Tiger®, a tactical nylon line of products distributed exclusively for the US market by Proforce Equipment, Inc., is pleased to announce its TT TAC Modular 30 Vent backpack has received the Gold Score from the National Tactical Officers Association (NTOA) Member Tested and Recommended Program, with an overall score of 4.78 out of 5 from law enforcement officers.

“I have humped a ruck for over 35 years and my testament is that this is one of the most comfortable rucks I have ever had on my back,” observed a testing officer from Michigan.

The TT TAC Modular Pack 30 Vent is built on Tasmanian Tiger’s X Vent-Zero Plus Carrying System that combines lightweight construction with superior ventilation and adjustable fitting options. Fiberglass rods are attached in an X-shape to the back of the pack and with the integrated hip belt, provide the supporting structure of the pack. Two additional fiberglass rods transfer the load to the anatomically shaped, ventilated hip belt. The open space created by the supporting structure allows for a large ventilated zone across the wearer’s back.

The testing officer from Arizona found, “the vented design and keeping it (the pack) off the back is nice, especially when living and working in a hot climate.”

The TT TAC Modular Pack 30 Vent features a discreet appearance with all the functionality of a “military-style” rucksack. The “clean” outer appearance opens to reveal its modularity capabilities, “the modularity of the pack is all built on the inside with hook-and-loop and laser cut slots where the user can attach all the MOLLE accessories they desire,” said the police officer from Arizona.

The Arizona officer added, “the main compartment is spacious and features two tracks of laser cut MOLLE hook-and-loop down the length of the back wall of the (inside of the) pack. The bottom compartment is a great size and features hook-and-loop along the back wall. The main and bottom compartments are separated by a zippered wall and could be combined if desired. The top outer pocket is a decent size and would be a good place to put smaller items that you want quick access too, but don’t necessarily need to carry on your person. The laser cut MOLLE is a really nice feature and makes it extremely easy to install MOLLE attachments and maintain a lower profile due to the sleek design while still remaining sturdy.”

The TT TAC Modular Pack 30 Vent backpack holds about 30 liters and without gear, weighs 51 ounces. Its dimensions are 20” x 11” x 7” and is made from T-Square Rip CODURA® 700 den material with YKK zippers. Available in Black, Carbon, and Olive, the TT TAC Modular Pack 30 Vent retails for $199.00.

ILLINOIS POLICE DEPARTMENT IMPLEMENTS VIRIDIAN® WEAPON-MOUNTED CAMERAS

 

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – July 1, 2019 – The Salem, Illinois Police Department has deployed the FACT Duty Weapon-Mounted Camera (WMC) from Viridian® Weapon Technologies to all of its sworn officers. Viridian and the police department of Salem will hold a joint press conference on Tuesday, July 2 at 10:00 am at the Salem City Hall located at 101 South Broadway Avenue, Salem IL, 62881.
The FACT Duty fits standard police duty weapons and holsters and records automatically, providing an unobstructed view from the end of an officer’s firearm. The need for this product continues to be validated in current events throughout the United States.
“We explored body cameras, but ultimately chose Weapon-Mounted Cameras,” said Police Chief Sean Reynolds. “We found out about these [FACT Duty WMCs] while researching body cams. I was intrigued and ordered one unit for our department to test.
“We used it in several low-light, no light and other scenarios and really liked the performance. The video is clear and the audio is great. I pitched the FACT Duty to the council because of the limited data storage required, lower initial costs and the fact that there won’t be an obstruction if we have an officer-involved shooting.”
Viridian created an important category for law enforcement with the introduction of the FACT camera. This advanced Weapon-Mounted Camera provides an unobstructed view of critical use-of-force events from the end of the firearm, addressing limitations officers can face with body cameras. Over 500 agencies have been in the process of testing and implementation of the Viridian WMC since it became available last year.
The highly advanced WMC employs a 1080p full-HD digital camera with a microphone and 500 lumen tactical light. Viridian’s proprietary
INSTANT-ON® technology automatically activates the camera and microphone whenever the officer draws the firearm from its holster. Not only does this eliminate risk of failure to manually turn on the camera during a critical event, but it also keeps the officer from fumbling with cumbersome equipment.
“Our FACT Duty is truly standalone—and the need it fills in law enforcement is so important,” said Viridian President and CEO Brian Hedeen. “We’ve been able to get this in the hands of so many departments, and seeing the difference it makes is encouraging. The FACT Duty WMC is the only product specifically designed to capture Officer Involved Shootings (OIS).
“The technology achieves this in a manner that is not cost prohibitive, requires no manual step or extra training in the field, doesn’t add to administrative duties or processes and even provides a tactical advantage to officers. At Viridian, we pride ourselves on our independence and our innovation—and we’re happy Chief Reynolds has supported and the City of Salem has approved something so important to modern policing.”
Easy Purchase and Implementation
FACT WMCs do not require the purchase of supplemental equipment or services and are designed exclusively to answer the needs of today’s officers. The WMC generates just a small fraction of the data to manage compared to other law enforcement recording options because it only records when the officer’s weapon is drawn.
After the purchase of the WMC, there are no maintenance fees, monthly charges or other significant expenses required. This results in significantly lower comparative data management costs than other evidentiary camera systems. The FACT Duty is a one-and-done solution for law enforcement administrators and purchasing departments.
The WMCs fit on existing standard-issue firearms and fit seamlessly in multiple duty holster platforms, making it easy for implementation by any law enforcement agency. The cameras feature a recording time of over three hours to handle virtually any scenario. They also incorporate secured data access and are easily rechargeable.
Body and dash cameras were not designed to capture officer-involved shootings. However, Viridian WMCs were designed specifically for this purpose.

Nammo Signs Historic Framework Agreement with the Norwegian Armed Forces

Nammo today signed a four-year framework agreement with the Norwegian Defence Logistics Organization (NDLO) for ammunition deliveries to the Norwegian Armed Forces. Worth more than NOK 1.7 billion, the agreement will support Norway’s efforts to improve its levels of training and operational readiness.

“We are honored by the trust placed in us by such a demanding customer as the Norwegian Armed Forces,” said Morten Brandtzæg, President & CEO of the Nammo Group.

Norwegian Minister of Defense, Mr. Frank Bakke-Jensen, emphasized the importance of the agreement in addressing the longstanding concern regarding ammunition supply.

“It is absolutely crucial that the Armed Forces have sufficient ammunition both for day to day operations and for its readiness stores. This has been a challenge for several years, and I’m very pleased that we will now get this resolved,” said Mr. Bakke-Jensen.

Petter Jansen, CEO of the Norwegian Defence Logistics Organisation, also expressed his satisfaction with the agreement.

“Strategic partnerships with solid industrial enterprises is a cornerstone of our approach to military logistics and supplies in peace, crisis and conflict. Nammo is a business we have a long-standing cooperation with and they are a trusted partner for the Norwegian Armed Forces. Today’s framework agreement with Nammo takes us a long step forward in terms of preparedness, readiness and operational effect,” said Jansen.

The framework agreement sets the terms for a series of subsequent agreements between Nammo and the NDLO. The first of these was also signed during today’s ceremony at Oslo’s historic Akershus fortress, and it outlines the expected deliveries to the Norwegian Armed Forces over the coming four years. This not only allows Nammo to plan and deliver more efficiently, but also to secure long-term supplies of critical raw materials and components.

“This is the kind of relationship we want with all our core customers, as we believe it delivers substantial benefits to both sides, both in terms of cost during peace time and security of supply in times of crisis and war,” said Mr. Brandtzæg.

Nammo and NDLO today also signed a letter of intent to pursue a second agreement within the scope of the framework agreement, which will detail Nammo’s role in preserving Norway’s national security of supply.

“Ammunition manufacturing today is about a lot more than just brass and gunpowder. It depends on an increasingly complex supply chain with long lead times and on the availability of highly skilled people able to operate sophisticated manufacturing equipment. We are able to manage this today thanks to our broad international presence and expertise, but going forward we see long-term strategic partnerships with our customers as the best way of addressing the challenge that this growing complexity represents,” said Mr. Brandtzæg.

Nammo is an international aerospace and defense company headquartered in Norway. With 2400 staff spread across more than 30 sites and offices in 13 countries, Nammo is one of the world’s leading providers of ammunition, rocket motors and demilitarization services for both military and civilian customers.

HOWARD LEIGHT: Effective and Economical Hearing Protection

 

 

 

QuietTM Band

Diverse collection of Honeywell Howard Leight foam earplugs deliver high-performance hearing protection and a proper fit for any shooter

WESTWOOD, Mass. (June 28, 2019) – Foam earplugs are the most commonly used form of hearing protection for many good reasons, but primarily because they are inexpensive and provide a high noise reduction rating—up to 33dB. The simple design of foam earplugs delivers great performance and protection. When inserted properly, they completely seal the ear canal, while the cellular composition of the foam creates tiny airspaces which fracture and re-fracture sound waves.

Because foam earplugs must be flush and fully expanded deep inside the ear canal to properly protect, one shape and size does not fit all. While some other brands simply offer the same standard plug in different color variations, Honeywell Howard LeightTM delivers true innovation in foam earplug design, offering numerous styles of foam earplugs engineered to meet the needs of a full range of shooters. Corded, uncorded, one-time use and reusable models are available, starting at just pennies per pair.

These reusable plugs have a 28 NRR and are made in the USA.

Umarex Summer Safety Campaign

(Fort Smith, Arkansas) June 28, 2019—Umarex USA is teaming up with outdoorsman and artist Tim “Spike” Davis to kick off its 2019 Summer Safety Campaign.  The summer season is a perennially active family outdoor based recreation time in the US. Umarex will use Tim’s quirky and unique art to underscore the safe use of airguns.
On Monday, June 24th, 2019 Umarex USA began bi-weekly posting a series of 12 hand drawn Tim Davis
sketches to their Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter social media feeds. These sketches highlight basic safety concerns that deal specifically with airgun owners.
Modern airguns are accurate and can be very powerful. These airguns should not be considered a toy under any circumstances. Just like firearms, airguns require safety protocols for their use.  These protocols include the traditional Four Rules of Firearm Safety, but also some additional wisdom that will help airgun owners create a positive public image and, most importantly, a safe shooting environment.
Umarex USA would like to encourage our friends on social media, our corporate partners, and members of the outdoors media to join with us to spread this safety message to respect airguns across the US. Umarex USA Social Media Channels will be using the hashtag #respectairguns with all of these posts. Please join Umarex USA in this messaging campaign to foster a safe and enjoyable shooting experience and lead by example to start off this summer with #respectairguns.

Olympians Dominate Rifle/Pistol National Championships

 

(COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado – June 27, 2019) –

Two Olympians and a promising Olympic hopeful dominated their events to win national titles on a nine-hour day of exciting shooting action that included seven event Finals taking place at the 2019 USA Shooting Rifle/Pistol National Championships.

Olympic champion Ginny Thrasher (Springfield, Virginia), 2012 Olympian Nick Mowrer(WCAP/Butte, Montana) and Olympic hopeful Alexis Lagan (Boulder City, Nevada) were crowned National Champions in Three-Position Rifle, Men’s Air Pistol and Women’s Air Pistol at Pool Range Complex in Fort Benning, Georgia. Most notable was the dominating way in which each of them climbed to the top of the podium.  Margins of victory of 15, 19 and 24 points, earning national titles before the Finals, and yet coming out and dominating their Finals as well with nothing really on the line.

Capturing Junior National Titles in those events were Katie Zaun (North Dakota), Luke Simon(Fargo, North Dakota) and Sarah Choe (Bridge Jr./Los Angeles, California).

The lone Paralympic final Wednesday was the P3 Air Pistol event and it would feature two U.S. medalists with YanXiao Gong (Bridge Jr./South Pasadena, California) earning a silver medal and Marco De La Rosa (San Antonio, Texas) the bronze medal. It was Gong’s first Paralympic event and his second-place result earned him Para Team status.   

In Three-Position Rifle, Thrasher used a U.S. record 1181 on Day 1 to set the pace and then followed that with a strong 1175 on Day 2 to claim a 10-point advantage over the two Qualification matches.  By winning the Final, she earned eight extra points towards her score. Thrasher wouldn’t claim the Finals lead until the last position of standing.  Zaun was the Finals leader after the first position of kneeling while Rachel Garner (Celina, Texas) would have the lead after the kneeling portion of the match.  

“My performance this week feels like a lot of hard work paying off and gave me a lot of confidence in my positions and mindset going into Pan Ams next month,” Thrasher stated.  “I’m really excited to keep working and improving as I move to the Olympic Training Center to continue as a professional athlete.”

Sarah Beard (U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit/Danville, Indiana) finished second with a strong showing as well with a match-high 67 center-10s throughout the match. Finishing third was the reigning NCAA Smallbore National Champion from Texas Christian University, Elizabeth Marsh(Searcy, Arkansas).

It was a war of attrition for the 16-year-old Zaun as the lone junior to make the Open final only to have to turn right around and compete in the junior Final on a hot, muggy day in Fort Benning, Georgia. Having built a 10-point cushion in Qualification, the Final proved inconsequential, but she still wound up finishing third in both. West Virginia University junior Sarah Osborn (Hampton, Virginia) finished second while Emily Stith (USAMU/Jacksonville, Florida) wound up third.

Don’t let the 19-point margin of victory for Mowrer fool you on how hard he worked to create the type of separation he did. Despite outshooting the field by 16 over the two Qualification matches including a top-notch 581 on Day 2 and a combined 13 more center-10s than anyone else, Mowrer admitted he never did get a good feel for what he was seeing in the sights. Scary to think what he might do when he does.

“Today and yesterday was hard work, terrifying in fact,” Mowrer explained. “Terrifying because the sights were not giving me the feedback I wanted to stay warm and fuzzy. The hard work was sticking to the process and being disciplined to put the gun down. Also, staying on my sights and having the confidence that no matter how scary, the shot was going to be in the middle was a real challenge; it was not fun. There have only been a few days that I would say that, because I love how fun shooting is. This however was work and the rewarding part is that my training allowed me to get rewarded for that work.

“Moving forward, this competition was a good stepping stone and confidence builder moving into the Pan American Games and later World Cup Rio,” he added. “Hard work is far from over, but the training is working so I’ll keep working hard and with any luck it will get easier as confidence builds.”

Finishing second to Mowrer was 2016 Olympian Jay Shi (Phoenix, Arizona) with Anthony Lutz(Orient, Ohio) earning a spot on the National Team with a bronze-medal performance.  Senior champion was Konstantine Pistoulis.

Four junior competitors made the Men’s Air Pistol Open Final including 17-year-old Hunter Battig(NTC/Colorado Springs, Colorado), who finished second to Mowrer. After finishing just one point away from third in Open, Simon would walk away with the National Junior title by an eight-point margin over another Open finalist, The Ohio State University’s Sam Gens (Andover, Massachusetts). Paul Kang (Bridge Jr./Los Angeles, California) finished third after prevailing in a shoot-off against Battig, 10.4 to 8.4. High J2 was Battig while Remington Smith (Ashburn, Georgia) claimed the high J3 score.

Readily admitting her struggles in Air Pistol, Lagan got her groove back in a big way, opening the competition with a big-time score of 581, which is a new national record, eclipsing any previous score by seven points. Her 577 Wednesday would have been the high national mark as well since women have been shooting 60 shots in Air Pistol since 2018. That accuracy meant she’d walk into Finals with a 22-point advantage and then she’d put the finishing touches on a dominating performance with the Finals win.

“Air pistol has been such a struggle for me the lately,” Lagan admitted.  “I have been working with Jason [Turner – coach] and Raymond [Pryor – sports psych] to find a strategy to get over this slump, and I think we have had a major breakthrough with this match. I’m looking forward to applying these notes in my preparation for Olympic Trials.”

The junior Choe would finish second to Lagan in the Open match after a shoot-off with Sandra Uptagrafft (Phenix City, Alabama) after they were tied following the Final.  Choe would then secure a nine-point margin of victory over Katelyn Abeln (Douglasville, Georgia) to capture the junior title as well. Ada Korkhin (Brookline, Massachusetts) was third while Caitlyn Yi andAnnabell Yi (Irvine, California) earned high J2 and J3 honors.

First-day competition took place in Men’s Air Rifle and Rapid Fire Pistol. Tim Sherry(USAMU/Highlands Ranch, Colorado) is working on getting himself another national title after already picking one up in Three-Position Rifle. He shot a strong 629.3 to open up a 2.4 point advantage over 2016 Olympian Lucas Kozeniesky (Fairfax, Virginia).  Junior competitor Matt Sanchez (Tampa, Florida) sits in third, but by just .1 points over Jean-Pierre Lucas (Oxford, Missippi).

With a 584 on the day, Keith Sanderson (Colorado Springs, Colorado) jumped out to a four-point lead in Men’s Rapid Fire Pistol over his two-time Olympic teammate Emil Milev (Hilliard, Ohio).Henry Leverett (Bainbridge, Colorado), who earned an Olympic Quota earlier this year, is third with a 578, one point ahead of his brother Jack.  Those events will conclude Thursday.

¡Órale!Ese

Hope everyone is looking forward to a 4th of July with a little grilling time and some fireworks? I sure am, and I hope you all have a great 4th.

Well it’s Friday once more and time for our weekly shoot the shit. If you’ve been watching the Democrat debates, you need a shoot the shit to keep you from running to a therapist but remember that a therapist is someone who studied psychology so they could understand themselves. Save your money, put the smart phone down forget Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and have a good shoot the shit with your buds, co-workers or family.

Shoot the shit participants don’t need to know anything about the topic discussed and they can comment without supporting detail, they can use uncensored profanity, insult anyone they wish or change the subject altogether.

BETO (2)

Round one of the Democrat Debates had some memorable moments, when BETO and Julian Castro decided to speak in Spanish. Mind you these are candidates for the Presidency of the United States of America  in a public debate.

El Bato (2)

I guess they didn’t want to be outdone by Pete Buttigieg.

Now, imagine any of these three gentlemen in the White House. That’s why you need to have a Shoot the Shit!

Have a great weekend, be safe and spend some quality time with your buds and family.

Back-to-Back Wins for Team GLOCK at USPSA Regional Matches

 

SMYRNA, GA— June 26, 2019— Team GLOCK brings home numerous wins after back-to-back USPSA matches over the weekend.  All three team members left with winning titles as they continue on their journey to World Shoot 2020.

Team GLOCK competed at the Area 1 match in Bend, OR and the Area 7 match in Dunbarton, NH which are large regional matches that the team shoots to prepare for the upcoming third of four qualifier matches for World Shoot 2020.

With just under 500 shooters throughout all divisions, “Area 1 was a challenging match that focused on advanced level fundamentals” said Team Captain Shane Coley. “Every shooter was challenged in a different aspect, whether it be trigger control, movement, sight picture or stage planning.”  Area 1 was the first match back for team member Michelle Viscussi after the birth of her second child in February, where she took home a winning title as High Lady in Limited Division.  Ashley Rheuark, the youngest member of Team GLOCK reeled in another season win as she claims the title of High Lady in the Carry Optics Division.

After competing at Area 1 on June 19th and 20th, Team Captain Shane Coley went on to claim the top title at the USPSA Area 7 match in Dunbarton, NH.  Located near the headquarters of rival firearm manufacturer Sig Sauer, the competition was fierce and left no room for mistakes.  After a full day of shooting, Coley took home the title of Limited Division Champion. “This match required a lot of focus to maintain the competitive advantage all day and I’m thankful to come away with this win,” said Coley.

Team GLOCK is still pacing toward their best seasons ever and has solid standing in overall results for selection to Team USA for World Shoot 2020. “GLOCK has stood behind us every step of the journey and we strive every day to prove the GLOCK platform can perform at any level, and is the best on the market,” said Coley.

D-Day Commemorative Combat Shotgun

 

MKS Supply, LLC, Dayton OH, July 2019 – The exclusive marketer for Inland Manufacturing is proud to offer a special limited edition Ithaca Model 37 combat shotgun to commemorate and honor the 75 Anniversary of the D Day landings.

Only 100 of this this limited edition Ithaca Model 37 will be made. Each shotgun comes with a certificate of authenticity denoting the 75th anniversary of the D Day landings with the shotgun’s serial number imprinted on the certificate. A tasteful D Day commemorative cartouche is imprinted on the right side of the stock. Additionally, the company has authorized a special suggested retail price for these select 100 guns of only $1,049.

Manufactured by Ithaca in a joint and exclusive effort with Inland Manufacturing, this Ithaca Model 37 “trench gun” is faithful to the lethal original from its bead sight, Parkerized finish, oiled wood stock, ventilated hand guard to its robust lug for the long 1917 bayonet (not included).

The receiver is CNC-machined from a solid block of steel and features the same military markings as the original. Also like the original, it loads and ejects through the bottom of the receiver.

For those who want an authentically reproduced very limited edition combat shotgun with D Day commemorative cartouche and certificate of authenticity, this special priced Ithaca Model 37 is a great choice.

Specifications:

  • Caliber: 12 gauge (23/4 and 3-inch)
  • Weight: 6.7 pounds
  • Barrel: 20 inches
  • Finish: Parkerized
  • Overall length: 38.5 inches
  • Stock: American Walnut (oil finished) with special D Day Anniversary cartouche.
  • Capacity: 4+1 rounds (4 in magazine, one in chamber)
  • Sight: Brass bead front
  • 100 percent all American made
  • MSRP: $1,049 special D Day commemorative price

Produced in limited numbers during WWII, the Model 37 production stopped in 1945. The Vietnam War really reignited the need for large numbers of combat shotguns and Ithaca started building Model 37s again beginning in 1962. Initially made for the Vietnamese military, the Model 37 proved so effective in jungle fighting it was contracted for our military and models like the current Inland/Ithaca version were produced throughout the war.

The Model 37 was generally found with some elite units such as Navy SEALs and Army Green Berets. The Model 37 was especially handy for Marine Corps Corpsmen (actually Navy medics called Corpsmen by the Marines) and others in various support roles on the battlefield where quick, fight-stopping high-hit probability shots and total reliability were critical while the operator performed his primary mission task.

Out of production since 1975, the Ithaca Model 37 is now back and every bit as mean-looking and effective as it was in WWII , Korea and the jungles of Vietnam. The Model 37 has proved to be a serious fight stopper in combat since WWII and a fun gun to use recreationally, hunting or for self-defense for over 75 years–especially for those wanting an authentic looking piece of combat firearm history.

Bond Arms Rough Series: Company’s Most Affordable Guns Are as Tough as Their Name

 

At the request of their customers, the Texas manufacturer of high-end, compact handguns rolls out their most affordable models yet.

Granbury, TX (June 25, 2019) – Bond Arms®, located in the small town of Granbury in the heart of Texas, is known for making some of the finest, compact handguns available today. They are a favorite among collectors, concealed carry practitioners and anyone who appreciates a superiorly made firearm. But to deliver such quality also costs and over time, the company has been approached by fans who have asked if there was any way to make a more affordable Bond Arms® handgun. Never ones to disappoint, the team at Bond Arms went to work, and their answer to the request is the new Rough Series handguns featuring two models-the Roughneck™ and the Rough N Rowdy™.

The Roughneck™ is a single-action double barrel 9mm pistol with a stainless-steel finish and black rubber grips. It comes with fixed sites and the same quality push-button cross-bolt safety and rebounding hammer used in their high-end models. The trigger guard is removable.

The Rough N Rowdy™ is a single-action double barrel pistol chambered for .45 Colt and 2½-inch .410 shells. It features a stainless-steel finish, black rubber grips and fixed sites along with the same push-button cross-bolt safety and rebounding hammer. The trigger guard is also removable. Interchangeable barrels are available for both models.

The Roughneck™ retails for $269 and the Rough N Rowdy™ has an MSRP of $299, both are by far the lowest price models in the Bond Arms® family of handguns despite being manufactured with the same quality materials and components that are used in their highest end models. So how did they do it?

Bond Arms® engineers intensively reviewed the processes used to build their firearms detail by detail. Their goal was to determine the minimum amount of finishing needed to create a handgun in order to take less time to manufacture and thus less costly to create. Of course, a rougher finish was inevitable. On a high-end firearm, much of the cost comes from the time spent finishing the gun-sanding out swirly marks and rough areas inherent in the machining process and hiding seams where parts fit together such as where the metal frame joins the trigger guard. The one thing the handguns still needed to do, however, was they had to have the same safe, reliable operation all Bond Arms® handguns are known for, and they still had to be comfortable to shoot.

“The rough finish adds quite a cool factor to the Roughneck™ and the Rough N Rowdy™,” says Dylan Hunsucker, spokesman for Bond Arms®. “We do minimal clean-up and deburr to ensure there are no sharp edges, and then we bead blast the finish. There is no sanding and polishing of the frame, which takes enormous amounts of time and adds to the cost of our higher-end firearms. The final product is that you can see the parting lines in the frame and trigger guard as well as some of the tool marks on the barrels and casting imperfections in the frame. It gives each one its own unique rough and tumble look.”

Roughneck™ Features:

  • 9mm, single action
  • Stainless steel double-barrel and frame
  • Black rubber grips
  • Fixed sights
  • Patented rebounding hammer
  • Cross-bolt safety
  • Removable trigger guard
  • Interchangeable barrel
  • 22 ounces
  • Barrel length is 3½ inches
  • Overall length is 5½ inches
  • MSRP: $269.00

Rough N Rowdy™ Features:

  • .45 Colt/.410 (2½-in. shells only), single action
  • Stainless steel double-barrel and frame
  • Black rubber grips
  • Fixed sights
  • Patented rebounding hammer
  • Cross-bolt safety
  • Removable trigger guard
  • Interchangeable barrel
  • Barrel length is 3 inches
  • Overall length is 5 inches
  • MSRP: $299.00

BOND ARMS, INC. is located in Granbury, Texas and manufactures the award-winning Bond Arms Derringer – the finest in double barrel protection. Originally organized under the name Texas Armory, the company became incorporated as Bond Arms in 1995 with the idea that the Remington Model 95 over-under, single-action derringer could be converted from an Old West anachronism into a modern & reliable handgun. The barrel and frame were redesigned to safely fire modern calibers & the entire handgun is constructed entirely from stainless steel. This makes for a pistol that’s both strong and durable.

Estonia Has Joined the SPIKE Missile Family

SPIKE MISSILE (18)

The Estonian Army will be supplied with SPIKE LR ATGM’s, launchers and associated maintenance and training

June 24, 2019 – In a ceremony last week in Tallinn, Estonia, the Estonian MoD signed a 40M Euro Framework agreement with Eurospike (a European Joint Venture between Rafael Advanced Defence Systems, Diehl Defence and Rheinmettal Defence) for the supply of SPIKE LR ATGM’s, launchers and associated maintenance and training.

The contract included ICLU (Integrated Control Launch Units) launchers and live SPIKE rounds.

SPIKE is a cutting-edge precise, multi-platform, multi-mission and multi-range electro-optical missile Family, with capabilities of fire-and-forget, as well as fire, observe and update, allowing attack of hidden targets.

Estonia is the 32nd user nation of the SPIKE missile, and the 19th user among the EU and NATO. More than 30,000 SPIKE missiles have been supplied to-date around the world, with over 5500 SPIKE missiles firings, both in training and in combat.

The SPIKE missile and launcher cross-nation commonality enables nations to manage joint SPIKE missile stocks, create joint procurement and maintain mutual support. In combination with local production within Europe by local SME’s, SPIKE is a truly common European missile.

Mr. Günter Lauer, EUROSPIKE Managing Director: “We are thankful to the Estonian army for their confidence in the SPIKE missile. This Procurement by Estonia follows recent SPIKE Missile contracts of other Baltic states, Latvia and Lithuania, and it creates common ATGM capabilities within the Baltic nations, enabling the missile to serve with interoperability, and bare potential for future cross-Baltic mutual support.”
