Larry and Brenda Potterfield Donate $55,000 to Support 4-H Shooting Sports

COLUMBIA, MO – July 12, 2017 –
Larry and Brenda Potterfield, owners of MidwayUSA, recently attended the 2017 4-H Shooting Sports National Championships, held at the Heartland Public Shooting Park, in Grand Island, Nebraska. This year, 712 participants from 36 states participated in 27 different events. The weeklong competition covered nine disciplines including archery (compound and recurve), air pistol/air rifle, hunting, muzzle loading, shotgun, small-bore pistol, and small-bore rifle.

Missouri was represented at the 4-H Shooting Sports National Championships by 36 youth competitors and 9 adult volunteers (nine teams of four youth and one adult coach). To help with travel expenses associated with sending Missouri state shooting teams to the National Championships, Larry and Brenda generously donated $10,000 to the Missouri 4-H Foundation. Remaining funds from the donation will be used for 4-H training workshops. Each year Missouri 4-H trains approximately 250 volunteers at six workshops.

“Without the continued and dedicated support of MidwayUSA and our many volunteers, 4-H Shooting Sports could not function as it does today,” said Jim Sappington, Missouri State 4-H Shooting Sports Coordinator. “The many levels of support Larry and Brenda Potterfield provide to our program allow us to train new volunteers and supply our state programs and teams with the equipment needed to perform at the highest levels. It also allows us the ability to work with some of the best and brightest of Missouri’s youth through shooting sports, allowing them not only to be better shooters but also to develop into great young adults and future leaders of Missouri and the Nation.”

A direct result of the Potterfield’s generosity, the National 4-H Shooting Sports Program was the recipient of an additional $45,000 donation – received through a donor advised account at Tulsa Community Foundation. The donation directly supports the 2017 4-H Shooting Sports National Championships, National 4-H Shooting Sports Instructor Workshops, and the Face to Face Conference of all state level 4-H Shooting Sports Coordinators in October, 2017 in Louisiana.

Larry and Brenda have provided financial support to National 4-H Shooting Sports programs since 2011. Their contributions have had a significant impact on the expansion of 4-H Shooting Sports programs nationwide. In 2011, 4-H Shooting Sport programs reached 306,000 youth with 15,000 instructors. In 2016, the National 4-H Shooting Sports program reached over 450,000 youth, supported by over 21,000 adult volunteer Instructors.

“I was so pleased that Larry & Brenda were able to join us in Grand Island Nebraska for a day of our 2017 4-H Shooting Sports National Championships,” said Conrad Arnold, National 4-H Shooting Sports Program Coordinator. “Having them visit and getting a firsthand look at how their support impacts the lives of so many youth & families throughout the country meant much to those of us who are dedicated to impacting lives through 4-H youth shooting programs.”

About 4-H Shooting Sports

The focus of all 4-H programs is the development of youth as individuals and as responsible and productive citizens. The National 4-H Shooting Sports Program stands out as an example. Youth learn marksmanship, the safe and responsible use of firearms, the principles of hunting and archery, and much more. The activities of the program and the support of caring adult leaders provide young people with opportunities to develop life skills, self-worth, and conservation ethics.

Henderson, NV – Hogue Knives is pleased to announce the expansion of their automatic knife line to include new EX-A05 models. “Our X5 folder, which was introduced last year, proved to be so popular that our customers wanted to see the same unique design in an automatic version,” said Hogue managing partner and master toolmaker Jim Bruhns. “The result is a lightning fast spring action knife that is a reliable work horse each and every time you need it.”

The EX-A05’s blade is made from cryogenically heat treated CPM154 stainless steel and its edge is hand sharpened and honed for a lasting edge. Available in both spear point and modified wharncliffe styles, the blades are finished with either a tumbled stone wash or a kiln baked black Cerakote™ finish. The dynamic handle of the EX-A05 is created from 6061 T6 aircraft aluminum that is hard anodized with either black, flat dark earth or od green. Optionally available on the black models is an inlay of Hogue’s G-Mascus® Black G10 with their mini-piranha grip texture for added traction and superior comfort.

The EX-A05 includes an ambidextrous tip-up pocket clip designed for every day deep pocket carry.

This week on High Caliber Radio we will talk about the trends in firearms sales that we witnessed over the weekend at 2 Gun Shows.  We will also talk to Jin Laxmidas of Tag Safari.  Jin will tell us of his journey from Zimbabwe to the U.S. and his hardships and faith in starting over in a new country.

 

Lawmakers introduce SHUSH Act to classify suppressors as gun accessory

Republicans on Capitol Hill last week introduced bicameral legislation that aims to drop all federal regulation of suppressors and silencers.

The Silencers Helping Us Save Hearing Act, backed in the Senate by Sens. Mike Lee of Utah and Mike Crapo of Idaho, and in the House by Iowa Congressman Steve King, would mandate that suppressors be treated the same as firearm accessories.

“Suppressors can make shooting safer for the millions of hunters and sportsmen that exercise their constitutional right to use firearms every year,” Lee said in a statement from his office. “The current process for obtaining a suppressor is far too expensive and burdensome. Our bill would remove these unnecessary federal regulations and make it easier for firearms users to protect themselves.”

The bill, entered as S.1505 in the Senate and H.R.3139 in the House, would not only remove suppressors from National Firearms Act requirements — a goal of the rival Hearing Protection Act — but also classify them as simple accessories which could be sold over the counter. The Hearing Protection Act, currently with 154 co-sponsors, would eliminate the $200 transfer tax on suppressors by dropping them from NFA rules, but still requires they should be transferred through federal firearms licensees after a background check, regulating them as firearms. Both bills provide for a refund on tax stamps bought since Oct. 22, 2015.

Crapo hails from Idaho, a state that is home to well-known suppressor maker Gemtech as well as a host of smaller manufacturers such as StingerWorx, Ballista and Tactical Innovations; while Lee’s home state of Utah counts SilencerCo and OSS Suppressors among its firearms industries. Iowa, where King’s district is located, became the 42nd state to legalize suppressor ownership by civilians last year.

Gun control advocates, who are opposed to the Hearing Protection Act, immediately slammed the new proposal.

“The bill would end the federal requirement for background checks on firearm silencer sales, and make it legal for convicted felons, domestic abusers, and the dangerously mentally ill to buy and possess silencers,” said Everytown in a statement. “To the satisfaction of NRA headquarters, the legislation would profit gun manufacturers, who could mass market firearm silencers at the expense of public safety.”

The Senate measure has been referred to the Finance Committee while the House version of the SHUSH Act has been double referred to both the Ways and Means and Judiciary committees.

Steyr M9-A1 Pistol in OD Green
BESSEMER, Ala. — Steyr Arms announced the introduction of its M9-A1 pistol with an OD Green grip frame today. OD Green has been a staple color for Steyr’s polymer furniture for nearly than 50 years, having been used extensively on the SSG 69 rifle and the STG 77, more commonly known as the AUG. Now the M9-A1 has been added to the list of Steyr firearms in OD Green, due in no small part to the overwhelming number of requests from U.S. shooters.

In the Steyr pistol line, the M9-A1 is the full-size offering with a 4-inch cold-hammer-forged barrel. These pistols have achieved a great deal of regard among American shooters for their comfortable ergonomics, remarkable safety features, intuitive sighting system, amazing accuracy and extreme reliability.

The M9-A1 features an innovative polymer frame that offer shooters unparalleled ergonomics with a high grip and an extremely low bore axis that mitigates muzzle rise, and the grip angle is optimal for a very natural point of aim. On the bottom of the frame’s dust cover is a Picatinny rail for mounting illumination and laser-aiming devices. An integrated trigger safety with a Reset Action System trigger requires positive finger pressure to operate, and the striker-fired M9-A1 also incorporates a keyed safety lock.

The suggested retail price for OD Green M9-A1 is $560.

Established in Steyr, Austria, in 1864, Steyr Mannlicher, GmbH, is one of the world’s oldest and most prestigious firearms manufacturers. Steyr’s comprehensive lines of premium hunting rifles and precision sporting and tactical firearms are technically mature, and their subtle elegance also communicates the harmony between appearance and substance.

Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office Selects SIG SAUER® P320®
Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office Selects SIG SAUER® P320®

Striker-Fired Pistol Chosen by One of Virginia’s Largest Agencies­

Newington, NH– SIG SAUER, Inc., The Complete Systems Provider, is proud to announce the selection of the striker-fired P320 9mm as the sidearm of choice for the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO).

Founded in 1757 and headquartered in Leesburg, Virginia, the agency is comprised of a host of substations located throughout its operational jurisdiction of Loudoun County, the state’s third most populous county. Today, the LCSO is the largest sheriff’s office in the state, consisting of almost 800 employees, including 584 deputies and 210 civilians.

“Two years ago, the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office extensively evaluated 9mm firearms from several major manufacturers,” said Sheriff Michael L. Chapman. “The SIG SAUER P320 stood out as the most versatile and the easiest to handle, and our deputies’ shooting scores improved dramatically. It became clear that the SIG SAUER P320 was the future when it came to firearms at the LCSO.”

Since its introduction in January 2014, the revolutionary P320 has gained tremendous momentum in the firearms world. Earlier this year, the U.S. Army selected a variant of the P320 as its next service pistol. With unprecedented modularity and a clean, crisp trigger pull, the P320 sets a new standard for striker-fired performance. The serialized trigger group is interchangeable, allowing the shooter to transform the size and caliber of the pistol. Full size, Carry, Compact and Subcompact frames are available. Grip frames are further divided into small, medium and large to accommodate any hand size.

“We are honored that the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office has selected SIG SAUER,” said Tom Jankiewicz, Executive Vice President, Law Enforcement Sales. “We take immense pride in building the finest pistols in the world, and it’s humbling to know that such a well-respected agency trusts their officers’ lives to the reliability and performance of the P320.”

Crimson Trace Sponsors Women’s Education Event
(Wilsonville, OR)— Crimson Trace®, recognized as America’s Top Brand of laser sights by national research firm Southwick Associates, recently played a pivotal part of The Well Armed Woman’s (TWAW) annual state conference held in Brooklyn, Michigan. Crimson Trace conducted an educational classroom session along with a hands-on range event to help the 80-plus participants learn more about firearms—and laser sights. The women attending the training at the Brooklyn Sportsman’s Club included chapter leaders for TWAW and various group representatives.

“The Michigan state conference is a great event for leaders and members of The Well Armed Woman to experience new activities and products,” states Donna Martorano, a TWAW Michigan co-leader. “It brings women together in a comfortable atmosphere. This event is designed to equip, empower and educate our members.”

The two-day event included an on-site live-fire firearms familiarization program. The participants shot approximately 1,600 rounds during the hands-on range training and test sessions. A classroom program covered details on Crimson Trace laser sights and the many benefits that sighting accessories provide to firearms owners.

“This was a great venue for learning about firearms and laser sights, and experiencing how laser sights can help improve accuracy,” stated Erik Thornbury, Crimson Trace Channel Sales Coordinator and company representative at the event. “Everyone learned in a safe environment, gaining knowledge they can take with them and use whether they carry concealed or have a firearm for home defense.” Pistols and revolvers equipped with Crimson Trace laser sights were used during the range portion of the event. Participants discovered the benefits that laser sights provide in aiming, accuracy, firearm control and other factors in shot placement.

More programs pairing Crimson Trace products and representatives with TWAW events are planned for the future. TWAW Shooting Chapters is a non-profit organization that joins together groups of women across America. Those women meet monthly to practice, learn and grow as firearms owners and users. These TWAW events help women shooters learn more on related issues along with safe gun handling skills.

For more than two decades, Wilsonville, Oregon-based Crimson Trace has provided America with the world’s largest selection of award-winning laser sight and tactical light products. Full details can be obtained by visiting www.crimsontrace.com or by calling 800-442-2406.

Black Aces Tactical one hand firing slugs!!
One hand firing slugs and 3″ rounds.  New recoil mitigation system in action.
Summer slow down?  No sir.

We have been holding off on the announcement of this new pairing of innovations but now it’s time for the official unveiling.  Black Aces Tactical is proud to announce that our sleeved DT pistol tubes and recoil mitigation system will now be standard features on all our DT models from this day forward.  Let’s look at both.

Sleeved Pistol Tube.

The public spoke and we listened.  There are an infinite number of different arm lengths so why do we have only one length of pull when it comes to a pistol stabilizing brace tube?  We’ve solved the issue by adding a set of removable sleeves to the tube itself.  This means that the overall length measurement can be adjusted from 27.5″ to 28.5″ to 29.5″ depending on the needs of the shooter.  Each weapon comes with two removable sleeves.

Recoil mitigation system.

An area that causes great concern in the shooter community is recoil.  Especially in a 12 gauge, shooters tend to be apprehensive and “dip” the gun just prior to firing.  Black Aces Tactical has solved this issue with our new Recoil Mitigation System. As you can see the system incorporates a new two piece action tube that captures both the counterweights and variable rate spring system.  Upon the shot, the counterweight slide forward to keep the muzzle rise to an absolute minimum.  The spring pressure on the front face of the action tube also serves top push the weapon away from the shooter, reducing recoil. 

And the best part is that it all comes that no extra cost!  Black Aces Tactical…giving you more.

Call us today to talk more about what we have to offer and what being in the Black Aces family means to you.  You will be happy you made that call, we guarantee it.

FLIR Professional Grade Clip-On Thermal
When an entire operation could depend on a single trigger pull, professionals choose Armasight by FLIR Apollo Pro thermal clip-on weapon sights

WILSONVILLE, OR The stakes can be life or death whenever a soldier, law enforcement officer or professional hunter pulls the trigger. That’s why expert operators demand the Armasight by FLIR Apollo Pro family of clip-on thermal imaging weapon sights.

Available in five distinct models, the Armasight by FLIR Apollo Pro is a rugged, solid-state, uncooled, long-wave infrared 1x (unity magnification) clip-on thermal imaging device designed to mount in front of a variable-magnification day sight on precision rifles and tactical weapons. It can also be used as a stand-alone thermal weapon sight or as a handheld monocular that features an integral compass and inclinometer for enhanced target ranging.

Utilizing proven FLIR TAU-2 Technology, Apollo Pro is offered in 336×256 and 640×512 pixel formats with professional-grade 50mm or 100mm Germanium (Ge) objective lenses, creating a wide variety of performance options to match the demands of any deployment.

Based around common core electronics, signal processing, and an infinity focused large-format collimating eyepiece, the Armasight by FLIR Apollo is available in a variety of options that cater to every military or commercial application. Installation of the Apollo Pro clip-on sight is easy, repeatable, and reliable, based on a user-friendly MILSTD- 1913/ Weaver/Picatinny rail-compatible quick-release locking mechanism.

As a 1x stand-alone weapon sight, solid-state reticle adjustments and software algorithms combined with a complementary color pallet ensure maximum reticle contrast and high-level accuracy that can’t be achieved with mechanical adjusters. Apollo Pro also offers a tracking electronic zoom (e-zoom) function that can progressively increase from 1x to 2x to 4x and 8x (640×512 format only) without changing the point of aim.

Armasight by FLIR Apollo Pro models use a multi-pin connector to provide video-out/video-in capability, as well as external power supply and support of accessories. An optional laser range finder, external battery pack, multispectral laser and other accessories designed to attach via the MIL-STD-1913 rail of the Zeus Pro are available.

An included five-button wireless remote allows operation and modification of the Apollo Pro imagery without having to remove hands from the weapon. The Bluetooth©-capable Apollo Pro can also interface with ballistics and control applications on most smart phones.

Apollo Pro models feature a user-friendly dual-power option of either four 3.0V DC CR123A batteries (all oriented in the same direction to prevent confusion in replacement) or four 1.5VDC AA batteries pre-loaded in a cartridge. Designed to operate even in the chaos of unexpected deployments, the Apollo Pro also offers a special power-management feature, which provides just over an hour of operation with a single 3.0V DC CR123A battery.

The Armasight by FLIR Apollo Pro represents the most rugged, versatile and sophisticated Armasight clip-on product available for soldiers, police officers and professional hunters who want to add full thermal capability to their existing daylight weapon systems.

The pack’s dimensions have been designed to accommodate a variety of firearms with installed optics and bipods. Layers of structural foam obscure the rifle’s signature contours and the interior of the pack’s pockets have been lined with fleece to protect the firearm and reduce noise.

The exterior design features have not been forgotten and include features like multiple pockets sized for storing essential gear, a rugged construction with heavy duty zippers, webbing and materials and a stowaway strap that allows the pack to attach to the back of a seat for covert car storage. MSRP is $99.99.

Springfield Armory Introduces Latest SAINT AR-15 Model
GENESEO, ILL. (June 12, 2017) – Springfield Armory® is proud to announce the newest edition of the SAINT™ series: the SAINT with Free Float Handguard. Like the original model, the new SAINT proves once again that high performance and upgraded features do not have to mean high price.

To further add value the latest version of the SAINT starts with a patent-pending Free Float Handguard (FFH) system with pinned low-profile gas block allowing the operator to grip the full length of the handguard without impediment. The hard-anodized aluminum FFH design accepts M-Lok accessories for easy, almost unlimited customization. The rock-solid pinned gas block runs wobbly set-screw alternatives right off the battlefield.

Elevation-adjustable, flip-up front sight, and dual aperture flip-up rear sight can be folded down or utilized to co-witness with optics. Bravo Company trigger guard and Bravo Mod 3 pistol grip surround the enhanced nickel-boron coated, single-stage GI trigger resulting in an incredibly crisp, grit-free break.

Upper and lower receivers are forged type III hard-anodized aircraft-grade 7075 T6 aluminum, locked together with Springfield’s Accu-Tite™ system to defeat the shake and clatter that plagues many AR-15 rifles. The M16 bolt carrier group is precision-machined, the bolt made from Carpenter 158 steel, shot peened and magnetic-particle inspected for durability. The 16-inch barrel is premium chrome moly vanadium steel with a 1:8 right-hand twist, chambered for 5.56 NATO (.223) to stabilize a wide range of ammunition types. Chamber, bore and exterior are all Melonite® treated, for second-to-none durability in the field.

With its ample cheek weld comb, dense butt pad, six positions, and tight rattle-free fit, the Bravo Company stock feels reassuringly solid when shouldered. The mid-length gas system and H-style heavy tungsten buffer lessons felt recoil, for fast and accurate follow-up shots. Combat-refined pistol grip and trigger assembly promote an effective fighting position. At 6 pounds 9 ounces unloaded, the new SAINT is nimble and well balanced – a significant advantage during long hours of practice, patrol, or in the heat of battle.

World-class design, engineering and components make the new SAINT AR-15 a worthy ally in any encounter. But the real advantage is how it feels –plinking, practicing, competing or defending. And with an MSRP of just $1049, the new SAINT with Free Float Handguard delivers premium performance at an incredible value.

News and Information

June 2, 2017

Tune in today and listen to Eric Lemoine of Black Aces Tactical talk about their new $199 .223 Suppressor!!!  Check out the video below:

Black Aces Tactical $199 PoBoy Suppressor put to the test
We abuse a production model Black Aces Tactical Pro Series 56 PoBoy Suppressor to find out what it can take.
The purpose of this test:

The Truth: As we are all aware, there are many reasons why not everyone will put their suppressor though this level of torture.  Chief among which is the cost associated with many of the silencers on the market today.  While many will not nor have a desire to abuse their suppressor in such a manner, it’s good to know that the suppressor you buy can take the hit.

The Performance: It’s through obsessive and intense testing that we have designed a configuration that remains both simple and user serviceable.  We have produced a silencer that will take the punishment you give it while remaining both quiet and strong. And at the end of the day, you are able to service the suppressor fully.  And we’ve done this all at the $199 retail price point.

The Math- You as a customer have choices. You can either pay $800-$1500 for a single suppressor or you can pay only $199 for a silencer that you know has been put through the ringer.  What is more, you now have the ability to buy multiple suppressors for your entire AR collection without breaking the bank.  Yes, you have a choice.  You can buy another silencer from another company.  But given everything you know our can is capable of and it’s unbeatable price point, why would you?

The Specs:

Black Aces Tactical is proud to announce the release of our new 5.56 suppressor.
Pro Series 56 Po’Boy Suppressor
   Features & Specs
       –134 Db tested with an average of 33 Db reduction on a 16″ barrel AR platform rifle in 5.56

Santa Barbara Sheriff’s Office Selects SIG SAUER P320

California Agency Praises Modularity and Performance of Striker-Fired Pistol

Newington, N.H. – SIG SAUER, Inc., the industry’s Complete Systems Provider™, is proud to announce the selection of the striker-fired P320 pistol as the sidearm of choice for the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office.

The agency, located along the Central Coast of California, was founded in 1850 and stands as one of the oldest law enforcement agencies in the state. Today, the agency is comprised of more than 700 regular employees and more than 200 volunteers.

“After extensive testing, we selected the P320 in both 9mm and .40 and were impressed by its accuracy, reliability and modularity,” said Commander Sol Linver. “We were literally one week away from selecting a competitor’s pistol when SIG Law Enforcement Representative Tony Levatino visited us. We couldn’t be happier with our selection of the P320, and look forward to a long and rewarding relationship with SIG SAUER.”

Since its introduction in January 2014, the revolutionary P320 has gained tremendous momentum in the firearm world. Earlier this year, the U.S. Army selected a variant of the P320 as its next service pistol. With unprecedented modularity and a clean, crisp trigger pull, the P320 sets a new standard for striker-fired performance. The serialized trigger group is interchangeable, allowing the shooter to transform the size and caliber of the pistol. Full size, Carry, Compact and Subcompact frames are available. Grip frames are further divided into small, medium and large to accommodate any hand size.

“We are proud to add such a well-recognized agency as the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s office to the fast-growing list of law enforcement agencies adopting the SIG P320,” said Tom Jankiewicz, Executive Vice President, Law Enforcement Sales. “SIG SAUER has a long history of providing only the best firearms for law enforcement use, and we are humbled that officers trust their lives to them.”

Countdown To Daisy National BB Gun Championship Match

Today marks one month to go until teams begin arriving in Rogers, Arkansas, for the 52nd annual Daisy National BB Gun Championship Match (The Daisy Nationals), the largest national 5-meter BB gun match in the nation. Held June 30-July 3, this prestigious event has been conducted by Daisy each year since 1966. Since 2010 Rogers has served as the host city to Daisy’s premier event.

Teams from all over the United States will be arriving one month from today at the John Q. Hammons Convention Center with high hopes of being named National Champion. Teams earned that privilege by placing first, second or third in a state match. These young shooting athletes (ages 8 to 15) are the best of the best and will be competing for medals and national records shooting Daisy’s 499B Champion single shot BB gun, described as the most accurate BB gun in the world. As an incentive for coaches to develop teams, teach Daisy’s curriculum (available to download from www.daisy.com) and compete in local and state matches, Daisy presents a monetary award to each team which qualifies for, attends and competes in this match.

The event begins on Friday, June 30, when teams arrive to practice. Throughout the four-day event, the teams will find an opportunity to tour the Rogers Daisy Airgun Museum (http://www.daisymuseum.com) and visit various attractions in historic downtown Rogers and the surrounding area.

The 5-meter competition begins Sunday, July 2, but shooting is only a part of this contest.

Other activities add to the fun and excitement of the Daisy Nationals, including a painted gun, best T-Shirt and other side-contests, as well as a barter bar (a trading event for athletes).

Closing ceremonies and award presentations for the 5-meter competition begin at 6 p.m. on Monday, July 3, followed by Daisy Night at the Water Park, when all teams are invited to gather, swim, ride water slides and watch the fireworks.

Lipsey’s and Vickers Tactical Full FDE GLOCK
Baton Rouge, La.—Lipsey’s, a nationally renowned firearms distributor, and industry icon Larry Vickers, continue to up the ante on the popular “Vickers GLOCK” series.

Shipping immediately as a Lipsey’s Exclusive, this new Full FDE GLOCK series is built on the Vickers preferred RTF2 frame. The initial production run will be limited to 2,000 G17’s and 3,000 G19’s.

There are some familiar features that seat this Full FDE model at the Vickers GLOCK table while maintaining its own unique personality. Touting the new AmeriGlo Pro I-DOT tritium front sight and proven Wilson Combat U-Notch rear, Vickers stated this may be the best sight configuration that he’s ever shot. “I’ve run a lot of pistols set up every way imaginable but this yellow/green front sight picks up as fast as anything out there.”

The reliable Vickers TangoDown add-ons include the extended mag release, extended slide catch and matching FDE magazine base plates. The grip plug with integral disassembly tool, new in FDE, is a perfect match. An allen wrench is also included for rear sight adjustment.

Now the fourth GLOCK in the Lipsey’s/Vickers Tactical offering, there are no signs of slowing down as Lipsey’s Vice President and Product Development Manager, Jason Cloessner, eludes. “The Vickers GLOCK project is one of our most popular and requested exclusives. With the popularity of our Full FDE exclusive that’s been around for a few years, we saw a void that this Vickers gun fills perfectly. We had to have Larry’s stamp on it.”

Located in Baton Rouge, Lipsey’s was originally formed as a wholesale hunting and fishing distributor in 1953. Today, the company leads the firearms industry in the collaboration and distribution of exclusive firearms. An authority in NFA regulations, Lipsey’s also offers a robust line of silencers, short barrel rifles and accessories. With a committed focus on relationships, Lipsey’s provides value and innovation to federally licensed dealers and the industry’s top manufacturers.

Starline Releases .300 Blackout Brass
SEDALIA, MO – Starline Brass has recently announced the addition of .300 Blackout to their growing line-up of quality rifle brass, which will soon include .450 Bushmaster, .243 Win, .223 Rem, 6.5 Creedmoor (small and large primer pockets), 7mm-08 and .260 Rem.

Starline’s new .300 Blackout rifle brass is produced with the same rigorous quality control standards that Starline has become known for. It is now available at half the price of comparable cases.

To order Starline’s .300 Blackout cases factory direct online, visit www.starlinebrass.com.

The .300 Blackout was introduced in 2009 by Advanced Armament Corporation (AAC) for use in the AR-15 platform. Any standard 5.56 AR-15 can easily be converted to .300 Blackout by changing the barrel. Its main purpose is to be loaded at subsonic velocities for use with a suppressor.

The .300 Blackout is the first SAAMI standardized round based on the .300/.221 Fireball wildcats, though the Blackout was designed to be built off of the 5.56 case.

With a wide selection of bullets available in .30 caliber, the .300 Blackout is suitable for taking game as large as whitetail deer, when loaded at supersonic velocities. The adjustability of the AR-15 platform and the low recoil of this round make it an excellent choice for smaller stature hunters.

The popularity of the .300 Blackout cartridge has led to it being offered in many bolt action and single shot rifles, which allows it to be loaded at subsonic velocities with any bullet weight, without concerns about cycling.

Starline is a family owned business that prides itself on producing the highest quality brass cases available at the best possible price. For more than 40 years, Starline’s unique manufacturing process and commitment from their team of employees has distinguished Starline from the competition. Starline manufactures a full line of handgun cartridge cases, and has recently begun producing rifle brass.

Nosler and MidwayUSA Launch 22 Nosler Sales Promotion
Bend, Ore –– Nosler, Inc. and MidwayUSA have partnered up with an offer to give customers looking to upgrade their AR-15s into a 22 Nosler®, a convenient combo pack available only at www.midwayUSA.com. The combo pack includes an AR-Stoner AR-15 A3 Upper Receiver Assembly chambered in 22 Nosler and 100 rounds of Nosler Varmageddon® Ammunition.
The MSRP for this combo pack would normally run $583.89 but for a limited time only, the price on the AR-Stoner upper has been reduced by $100 and the Varmageddon Ammunition is FREE for a total package cost of $399.99.

The A3 upper assembly will attach to virtually any standard AR-15 lower receiver, and comes complete with charging handle, forward assist, ejection port cover, a stainless steel A2 flash hider, and bolt carrier assembly. Supplied without sights, this upper is a great platform for a red dot sight or iron sights (both sold separately).

The AR-Stoner AR-15 A3 Upper Receiver Assembly chambered in 22 Nosler is ready to be assembled to a complete lower and fired. This AR-Stoner upper features a rifle length gas system for use with 22 Nosler ammo, a mil-spec bolt carrier group, an 18″ fluted, heavy contour stainless steel barrel and a lightweight, 15″ free float, AR-Stoner M-Lok handguard.

This effortless two-step retrofit allows shooters to experience the 22 Nosler’s performance, while still being able to use their existing 223 bolt carrier group.

The Varmageddon Ammunition features a 62 grain hollow point with a nominal MV of 3100 fps in an 18″ barrel and is designed for rapid expansion and dramatic terminal performance on varmint sized animals.

STI Costa Carry Comp Pistol

STI International has teamed up with self-defense and weapons training expert Chris Costa to design the new Costa series of pistols.

The Costa Carry Comp features an island sight, which is attached to the barrel instead of the slide, with the compensator ahead of the front sight. This technology reduces muzzle jump, making it easy to stay focused on the front sight for follow up shots. The compensator reduces recoil by 63% and the gun uses the STI Recoil Master dual spring system to reduce recoil even further, making the Costa Carry Comp one of the smoothest shooting pistols on the market.

The STI Costa Carry Comp is available in both 9mm and .45 ACP in the STI exclusive 2011® platform, which provides higher round capacity. The Modular design of the 2011 transfers recoil along a flatter plain for better control and faster follow up shots. The barrel is 4.15 inches (5.1 inches including the Island Comp) and the gun has a black Diamond Like Carbon finish with tan TreeBark stippled grips and a Picatinny under-rail to mount accessories. Sights are a fixed ledge rear with a fiber optic front. Two magazines are included, both 126mm and 140mm.

The Costa Carry Comp sells for an MSRP of $3,699.
