Shell Shock Technologies Signs Don Aman as Newest Sponsored Shooter

July 14th, 2019

Shell Shock Technologies will be supplying Aman with its NAS3 cases for his 2019 competitive season.

Westport, Conn. (June 2019) – Shell Shock Technologies, LLC., an early stage technology, and manufacturing company focused on developing innovative case technologies for the ammunition industry, is pleased to announce it has signed Don Aman as its newest sponsored shooter. Shell Shock Technologies will be supplying Aman with its NAS3 cases during his 2019 USPSA competitive season. He will be shooting his CZ CZECHMATE running 9mm at 170 power factor.

“Shell Shock Technologies’ NAS3 9mm cases are by far the best all-around 9mm cases I have ever seen or shot. This technology will revolutionize the reloading industry and I am so proud to be a part of the Shell Shock Technologies’ team. The old brass case technology has officially been put on notice!” Aman commented.

Aman has been involved in the shooting sports for over 20 years as a competitive shooter, reloader, Las Vegas survivor and a staunch pro-gun advocate. He started casting his own bullets in 2016 and quickly realized it was becoming a lost art. He began to read anything he could get his hands on regarding the art of casting lead and now shares this information with his subscribers on the Bullets for Freedom YouTube and UGETube Channel. During 2019, he will be traveling throughout the Northwest competing in many Level 1, 2 and 3 matches as part of the USPSA competitive season.

Aman can be seen competing next at the 2019 Northwest Challenge, to be held at the Paul Bunyan Rifle and Sportsman’s Club in Puyallup, Washington, July 12 – 14, 2019.

About Shell Shock Technologies NAS3 Cases:

NAS3 9mm cases are 50 percent lighter than brass cases, offer greater lubricity and will not abrade, clog, foul, wear-out or damage breach and ejector mechanisms. The cases offer greater corrosion resistance, tensile strength (2x stronger) and elasticity than brass. NAS3 cases will not split, chip, crack or grow (stretch) and are fully reloadable (using S3 Reload dies) and can be reloaded many more times than brass cases. NAS3 cases have been tested successfully by customers to pressures over 70k psi. NAS3 cases can be picked up with a magnet. The head can be colored for branding purposes and easy load identification.

NAS3 is “Best in Class” for maintaining consistent velocity between rounds. In an independent test performed by H.P. White Laboratory (a major munitions testing facility), rounds fired using NAS3 cases achieved a velocity standard deviation of 0.093 FPS (124-grain FMJ bullet, 4.2 grains Titegroup powder, 10 rounds, extreme variation 3fps).

Fanboy Movie Friday – The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai

July 12th, 2019

Officially available on YouTube as an ad-supported release is The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai, a pretty crazy Sci-Fi film produced and directed by W. D. Richter, who also co-wrote (really, almost completely re-wrote from scratch) ‘Big Trouble in Little China’, so if you like that film (like me), you might just like this one as well.

Guns Lots Of Guns

July 8th, 2019

‘Guns Lots Of Guns’ is a project by artist/illustrator Dan Fontana “celebrating the most unique and fearsome weapons from sci-fi, movies and video games.” The official website for the project shows off two upcoming posters detailing weapons from various fictional universes. The posters will be Giclee printed using ultrachrome inks on hahnemuhle 308 GSM archival paper. Now, the nuances of those details go way above my head, but you can easily assume these are intended to be some real high-quality prints.

Redpath Nations Ahegao Plate Carrier

July 2nd, 2019

Now here’s something you don’t see every day.

Jesse Redpath is making these carriers from a rather unorthodox pattern. Once you know the story behind the vest, it makes sense.

The idea came from a /k/ thread. This /k/arrier uses a combination of 500D Cordura and nylon with a ahegao print.

Foam padding is used on the user-facing side of the platebags for increased user comfort. Shoulder strap placement has been changed to be even wider for decreased neck discomfort along with ITW G-hooks being used in place of the conventional sewn in shoulder straps, allowing for servicing and customization of the straps. The front platebag includes a removable kangaroo placard attached by two QASM buckles. The kangaroo placard is lined with hook and loop to allow the insertion of magazine retention inserts. Also included with the carrier is a elastic cummerbund with magazine carrying capacity (3 magazines per side). The magazine slots on the cummerbund are sized to accept both 7.62 and 5.56 magazines.

D Day Commemorative Combat Shotgun

June 27th, 2019

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
  • Editorial background:

    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 Ithica 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.

    NERF N-Strike Mega Megalodon

    Introducing Galco’s New StukOn-U Pocket Holster

    June 24th, 2019

    Galco Gunleather’s new StukOn-U™ pocket holster builds on Galco’s decades of experience with pocket holsters. Its Gripper Shell™ exterior helps the holster grab the inside of the pocket, while the closed-cell foam substrate gives the holster shape and sturdiness. Finally, a layer of 420 denier packcloth lines the holster to both protect the handgun and smooth the draw.

    The StukOn-U is designed for front pocket carry in pants or a jacket. It keeps the firearm in the same general position so the grip can be quickly located during draw, conceals the shape of the gun so that its outline is not printed through the pants, and allows one-handed release of gun from both pocket and holster, especially when using a “hooking” draw technique to catch the trigger-guard edge of the holster on the pocket as the handgun is released. The holster’s Gripper Shell surface assists in keeping the holster in the pocket during the draw.

    Pocket carry offers some unique advantages. Not only is the handgun completely covered and concealed, but the gun carrier can casually place a hand on the holstered/pocketed pistol if a nonspecific threat materializes – and the fastest draw is to have the gun already in hand.

    The StukOn-U helps accomplish multiple concealed carry tasks with excellent discretion – and at the very reasonable retail price of $27!

    Enoch Industries Introduces the ODIN Chassis System, a Lightweight Chassis for the 10/22 Platform

    June 20th, 2019

    Spring Creek, TN, June 17, 2019 – Enoch Industries, designer and developer of top-tier firearm components, has recently unveiled their first product, the ODIN Chassis System, a lightweight and versatile system for the 10/22 platform. Weighing in at only 12.2 oz, this chassis system incorporates current AR-15 attachment standards, giving users a new level of function that standard 10/22 platforms fail to deliver.

    The only 10/22 chassis available on the market with a Picatinny rail at the back, the ODIN Chassis System provides a better option for attaching a new standard of stocks and pistol braces. This flexibility features a smaller footprint and offers considerable weight savings over the standard receiver extension and buttstock combos. Machined from billet 6061-T6 aluminum, The ODIN Chassis System provides a rigid, no-compromise platform for building or upgrading a precision rifle or pack-lite pistol.

    “This new chassis fills the gap in the market for a lightweight, modular system for the 10/22 platform,” said Joseph Sudderth, CEO of Enoch Industries. “While on the hunt for a lightweight chassis to upgrade a 10/22, we couldn’t find anything on the market that fit the bill. So we set out to design one that provided the flexibility and versatility that we needed, and the ODIN Chassis System was born.”

    The ODIN Chassis System is designed to give competition shooters and 10/22 enthusiasts the freedom to customize their build for any number of unique setups. In the front of the chassis, MLok slots at 3, 6, and 9 o’clock allow for the addition of a variety of accessories while two steel, 360° quick disconnects on both sides of the chassis are ideal for running sling attachments. The ODIN Chassis System includes a grip adapter that closes the gap from the grip to trigger housing, keeping the transition to a minimum and providing a more enjoyable shooting experience. The chassis accepts all non-beavertail AR-15 grips, although some beavertail grips are compatible with minor modifications to the grip. The ODIN Chassis System also fits all standard, non-takedown receivers excluding the Supergrade. Other notable ODIN Chassis System specs include:

    • Material: 6061-T6 Billet Aluminum

    • Weight: 12.22 oz (including all hardware)

    • Dimensions: 12.75” (L), 1.5” (W), 1.5” (H)

    • Stocks: 3 Picatinny slots at the rear of chassis

    • Attachments: MLok slots at 3, 6, and 9 o’clock

    • QD Inserts: 2 nitrided 360° steel inserts

    • Barrel channel inner dimension: 1.015″

    • Barrel lengths: Using a 6″ barrel brings the threaded muzzle to .575″ past the handguard, exposing threads for silencers.

    The new ODIN Chassis System is available online to customers in the US (excluding Puerto Rico) for an MSRP of $225 and includes the ODIN Chassis in anodized black along with all required hardware.

    June 12th, 2019

    Fort Smith, Arkansas (June 12th, 2019) — Umarex USA, innovator and marketer of a wide range of products for the outdoor sportsman, announced that its Ruger® 10/22® Air Rifle is now shipping and available for purchase through select retailers.

    The Ruger 10/22 has been seen on shooting ranges around the United States for over five decades.

The Ruger 10/22 Air Rifle is designed to shoot .177 caliber pellets, the most readily available and most popular selling airgun caliber for recreational shooting.

    S&W Has Issued An M&P15-22 Consumer Safety Alert

    June 11th, 2019

    Smith & Wesson has issued a consumer safety alert on all M&P15-22 rifles and pistols manufactured before February 1st, 2019. S&W has discovered that some recently manufactured 15-22s feature a defect causing a lack of proper depth of the breech face counter bore. This defect can cause a closed bolt to crush the rim of a chambered .22 round, causing it to unintenionally fire, cycling the bolt, and potentially causing multiple discharges without depressing the trigger.

    S&W is providing a free bolt inspection gauge which can be ordered by consumers to determine whether their 15-22 is within manufacturer specifications. Alternatively, S&W is also offering consumers the option to send their bolt in for a free inspection, and replacement if necessary.

    Since the 15-22 is a pretty popular and affordable plinker, there’s a chance at least a few of you own one, so if that is the case, get it checked out.

    DOOM: Eternal – Official E3 Story Trailer

    June 10th, 2019

    More info on the new DOOM game is, in my opinion, the best news to come out of E3 this year. Now, it looks like the Doom Slayer is not only working to stop Hell on Earth, but is also going after a vengeful Heaven, which opposes the Slayer’s attempt to stop the demonic invasion. Mix in plenty of new and old weapons, new and revamped enemies, new environments, new traversal methods, and more glory kills, while also retaining the most important aspect of a Doom title: fast-paced, action filled gameplay over story – and it looks like we’ll have a real winner of a game in our hands.

    DOOM: Eternal launches November 22nd, 2019.

    PTS SYNDICATE LICENSES MAWL FOR AIRSOFT

    June 9th, 2019

    B.E. Meyers & Co., Inc., known for its rugged, advanced photonic solutions for the defense and aerospace industries, and PTS Syndicate, a prolific licensee of products in the tactical market, are proud to announce an exclusive licensing agreement to bring the internationally recognized B.E. Meyers & Co. MAWL® (Modular Advanced Weapon Laser) to the global airsoft community. PTS Syndicate will be manufacturing and bringing to market the MAWL® -PTS, the only official licensed MAWL® replica, which will be easily accessible to consumers through PTS Syndicate’s extensive distribution network in Asia, Europe, and North America.

    MAWL®

    The MAWL® family of weapon lasers has been adopted by select Special Operations Forces around the world, and is currently in use, and deployed with a variety of U.S. and international defense, government, and law enforcement agencies as a standard weapon laser. It departs from the typical box design as a response to direct end-user feedback. With the ability to seamlessly transition power output, and divergence to adapt to environmental demands, the MAWL® is based off of three design parameters: to be used under stress, in the dark, and with gloves on. Incorporating cutting edge VCSEL technology for clearer, and more consistent illumination, with improved ergonomics and interface, the B.E. Meyers & Co. MAWL® remains unparalleled in performance.

    For more information on the MAWL®-PTS, including its official release date, please watch www.ptssyndicate.com. For more information on the MAWL® and other B.E. Meyers & Co. products please visit www.bemeyers.com
