“The Benjamin brand has always provided premier airguns that are unmatched in performance and value,” said Philip Guadalupe, Product Manager. “Our consumers told us that they wanted the Benjamin performance they’ve always relied on, but with the added benefit of being able to take more shots and extend the time between refills. We developed the Fortitude to deliver on what they were asking for.”

The Fortitude is built for endurance, getting up to 90 shots per fill. The regulator built into the 3000 PSI reservoir controls the output air pressure for shot-to-shot consistency, making the Fortitude the best option for backyard plinking, target shooting, pest control or small game hunting. All of these features will be available at the blazing low price of a $299.99 MSRP.

Fools Paradise – Super Professional

January 16th, 2018

A creation of underground toy maker Fools Paradise, Super Professional is one of the more interesting cross-overs I’ve ever seen, combining Super Mario with Leon: The Professional. The set is made of Vinyl and PVC, with the Leon figure approximately 30cm in height, so it’s actually a fairly large set.

Oh, and unfortunately this one is sold out at the time of writing; 398 pieces do go quick.

But, seriously, how great is it that a Bullet Bill is the can on Mario/Leon’s pistol?

World Champion Shooter Julie Golob Targets Firearm Safety with Children’s Book

January 10th, 2018

Toys, Tools, Guns & Rules: A Children’s Book About Gun Safety hits online stores

KANSAS CITY, MO (January 4, 2018) – Author Julie Golob is a prominent voice for sharing safe, responsible gun ownership throughout the firearms industry and beyond. Golob is a decorated multi-time world and national champion, an Army veteran, and a mother of two, and her newest book, Toys, Tools, Guns & Rules: A Children’s Book About Gun Safety, encourages families to begin having conversations about firearms with children at a young age.

Julie_Childrens_Book_Nov2017.indd

There are millions of guns in the United States alone. Despite how polarizing the media and politics make the topic of firearms, Golob emphasizes that we must talk with our children about guns and firearm safety to protect them and help prevent deaths and injuries. Her book Toys, Tools, Guns & Rules helps parents break the ice with kids on this taboo topic.

Golob’s career as a competitive shooter (she holds more than 50 world and national titles), military service, and expertise as a firearms instructor helped prepare her to write her first children’s book.

“I’ve been around firearms and the shooting sports all my life. As a mother of two young children, I wrote Toys, Tools, Guns & Rules to continue to teach my daughters about guns and firearm safety at a young age. My goal is to provide parents this educational resource to help encourage an open conversation with kids, because gun safety is for everyone.”

Throughout the 40-page book, Golob uses colorful and realistic imagery, illustrated by Nancy Batra, to inspire vital conversations about guns—starting by comparing firearms to other potentially dangerous adult tools. Parents and children can view some of the many different types of firearms and what they can look like. Toys, Tools, Guns & Rules provides parents with the opportunity to educate curious minds about how firearms work, call out the most dangerous parts of a gun, and identify adults children might know and encounter who safely and responsibly use firearms.

194CEEFA-9C5F-4759-958C-015E15F02330

In addition, Golob provides a useful guide for parents on how to make the most out of the book, so that they can answer questions and establish family and home rules regarding firearms. Coloring printouts and additional free resources are also available at kidsgunsafetybook.com.

Toys, Tools, Guns & Rules: A Children’s Book About Gun Safety is available through Amazon.com. Visit kidsgunsafetybook.com for more information.

Air Venturi to Release World’s First Frangible BB Ammo

January 4th, 2018

CLEVELAND, OHIO (January 4, 2018) Air Venturi, the leading manufacturer and importer of airgun, airsoft, and ammunition brands, is proud to announce the release of the revolutionary Dust Devil BBs, the world’s first frangible .177 caliber BB. Dust Devils are 10% faster than traditional steel BBs and shatter on impact with hardened targets for reducing ricochets and providing an overall safer shooting experience.

“Made right here in the USA, this new patent pending ammo is designed for dynamic shooting sessions where shooters don’t have to worry about ricochet,” says Paul Milkovich, Air Venturi’s Director of Business Development. “While frangible ammo has been popular with firearm shooters for decades, Air Venturi is the first company to produce a BB that leaves ricochets in the dust. Dust Devils are BBs perfected and we’re sure backyard plinkers and indoor shooters will take notice.”

Dust Devil BBs disintegrate into tiny fragments that safely crumble and fall, instead of sending rounds bouncing back at the shooter. Its proprietary blend of special alloys create a round that shoots 10% faster and is completely lead-free. Adding to Air Venturi’s wide assortment of air guns, airsoft guns and ammunition, Dust Devil BBs will be available beginning in March 2018.

For additional information on the new Air Venturi frangible ammo, contact Air Venturi Marketing Manager, Kristen Coss by email: kristen.coss@airventuri.com, or phone: 216-292-2570 ext. 253.

V8 Merc’s Commie Tommie

December 30th, 2017

6 different firearms. 9 different countries. One seriously cool custom gun. YouTuber V8 Merc created a 9mm rifle using an AK receiver, an SKS stock, a PPSH barrel shroud, a Saiga gas tube, a Yugo M76 bolt carrier, and Suomi KP/-31 drum mags (sadly limited to 10 rounds), plus some HK parts for the bolt assembly. It’s a dead ringer at 50 yards, and is one of the best-looking frankenguns I’ve personally seen.

The videos will be initially available as digital downloads as well as digital streaming from the Panteao website, Make Ready mobile apps, and Make Ready channel on Roku, Amazon Fire TV, and Apple TV.

Tnarmsco – Ghost Gun Lower Is Back

December 27th, 2017

Tennessee Arms Company has reintroduced their ‘Ghost Gun’ translucent polymer AR-15 lower for sale. These were originally available a few years back, and by Tnarmsco’s own admission were intended more as a novelty for teaching or showcase use, due to the inherent weakness of the translucent polymer.

I managed to crack open my original ‘Ghost Gun’ lower due to complications from installing the bolt release detent. Difficulty with installing that component was a fairly common issue with this lower, gleamed from a cursory internet search.

This time, the lowers are being offered only as complete assemblies, as “…the assembly process is slightly different with this lower compared to [Tnarmsco’s] standard lower receivers.” Given my above experience, having it come as a complete ‘drop-in’ assembly is a welcome option. Prospective buyers have their choice of standard Black furniture, or Magpul MOE furniture in a selection of colors.

Again, this is essentially a novelty item, so if you want one recognize exactly what you’re getting. Tnarmsco doesn’t recommend the ‘Ghost Gun’ lower for heavy use. Although they have tested it with a multitude of cartridges, from .22 LR up to .50 Beowulf, with no reported issues, and Sons of Liberty Gun Works even ran one full-auto during a testing phase, it’s not a lower you should beat into the ground.

Due to the nature of its construction, Tnarmsco offers a 45 day warranty for the ‘Ghost Gun’ lower.
