Captive State Trailer

September 17th, 2018

Extraterrestrials take over and make everything “better”, but at what cost? It’s not a new concept (X-COM, Colony, Half-Life 2), but it could be good. It is directed by the guy that did ‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes’, and that was actually a pretty decent film for a reboot franchise.

Captive State will be in theaters March 2019.

Fallout 4: New Vegas – ‘Ain’t That a Kick In The Head’ First 10 Minutes Trailer

September 16th, 2018

Fallout: New Vegas is a very well-regarded action RPG and is arguably the best of the 3D Bethesda-published Fallout titles yet released. Unfortunately, due to its age it’s a bit clunky from a “modern” gameplay perspective, and because of its incredibly short development cycle lending to sub-optimal performance, it can be a bit of a chore to run stably on a “modern” computer. However, a team of dedicated modders are currently working on a mod which consists of New Vegas, built completely from the ground up to run on Fallout 4. This mod will include completely redone voice work (for legal reasons) and even features the legacy SPECIAL and Skill systems from the older Fallout titles, instead of the leveling system seen in Fallout 4.

There’s currently no word on a release date, but it’s sure to be worth the wait.

1791 GUNLEATHER ANNOUNCES GUN HOLSTER BELTS

September 14th, 2018

Miami, FL, U.S. – (September 10, 2018) 1791 Gunleather®, innovative manufacturer of premium hand-crafted leather gun holsters, introduced two new gun holster belts to their assortment of hand-crafted leather goods. Available now, in Classic Brown or Stealth Black, 1791 Gunleather Gun Holster Belts are designed to meet the highest expectations of every day carriers and include the 1791 Gunleather Lifetime Warranty.

“Thanks to the skill of our expert leather artisans the 1791 Gunleather Gun Belts 01 are practically built for carrying your firearm yet stylish enough to wear every day,” said 1791 Gunleather CEO, Ramiro M. Romani. “And considering the high level of quality craftsmanship combined with premium American leather, they’re very reasonably priced at $59.99.”

“When you invest in a handgun, its important to choose a strong, purpose-built belt designed to spread the weight of your gun over a wide area,” said Romani. “With lower-quality belts the weight of a holstered weapon can take a toll and cause sagging. 1791 Gunleather Gun Belts 01 offer just enough flexibility to remain strong, secure, and comfortable.”

1791 Gunleather Gun Belts 01 are constructed with full-grain, 14-ounce leather found only on the top and most durable layer of heavy native steerhide. “Our premium American heavy native steerhide is not sanded beyond tanning or dyeing, and the detailed process delivers a superior leather that’s perfect for rugged working belts,” said Romani. “Fashion belts are often made from leather or suede treated with processes that make them softer. Those methods can cause the material to degrade much more quickly, especially when bearing the load of a gun holster. Think of the difference in sturdiness between handbag leather and horse bridle leather. Which would you rather depend on for your EDC gun?” he asked.

1791 Gunleather Gun Belt 01 Features:

  • Built for longevity, comfort, and style with 100 percent American heavy native steerhide
  • High-quality leather warms and molds to your body
  • Reinforced leather delivers added durability for heavier pistols and revolvers, and will not stretch, snag, split, or break
  • Quick and easy-to-use stainless steel roller buckle
  • Genuine Chicago stainless steel screws for a tight, dependable hold (1791 Gunleather never use snaps, plastic, or synthetic materials of any kind)
  • Belt Width: 1.5 inches
  • Belt Length: Sizes range from 32/36 to 48/52
  • Available Colors: Classic Brown, Stealth Black
  • Lifetime Warranty and 100% Customer Satisfaction Guarantee
  • MSRP of $59.99 is a bargain compared to other high-quality gun holster belts
  • According to Romani, “Our heavy-duty 1791 Gunleather Gun Holster Belts are made to hold all your gear. Anything you want to carry on your waist, from IWB holsters, OWB holsters, flashlights, mag pouches, knives, hammers, tape measures, and multi-tools are options. And because our belts are so rugged, attractive, and versatile, 1791 Gunleather is a top choice among law enforcement, veterans, first responders, and patriots alike. They’re discreet and comfortable for concealed carry, and they’re built to last,” he added.

    NRA Carry Guard Expo in Richmond CANCELLED Ahead of Forecasted Landfall of Hurricane Florence

    September 10th, 2018

    RICHMOND, Va. –The National Rifle Association has cancelled the second annual NRA Carry Guard Expo, which was scheduled for Sept. 14-16, 2018 at the Greater Richmond Convention Center in Richmond, Virginia, due to the impending threat of severe weather associated with Hurricane Florence.

    The cancellation was made in the interest of public safety due to the forecasted arrival of Category 4 Hurricane Florence in the mid-Atlantic region this forthcoming weekend, and the resulting declaration of a State of Emergency by the Governor of Virginia. This decision required careful deliberation and concern for the safety of attendees, exhibitors and others involved with the event.

    Customers who purchased event tickets or tickets to paid workshops will receive refunds for their purchases.

    Despite this major weather event being beyond human control, the NRA regrets any inconvenience caused by this decision. We look forward to welcoming guests and exhibitors next year to the 2019 NRA Carry Guard Expo, scheduled for Sept. 6-8, 2019, in Fort Worth, Texas.

    About the National Rifle Association

    Established in 1871, the National Rifle Association is America’s oldest civil rights and sportsmen’s group. Six million members strong, NRA continues its mission to uphold Second Amendment rights and is the leader in firearm education and training for law-abiding gun owners, law enforcement and the military.

    Entertainment Earth – Han Solo Carbonite Costume

    September 9th, 2018

    It’s a bit early for Halloween costume ideas, but if you’re looking to dress up and surplus fatigues and gear aren’t looking too appealing, then why not give the classic ‘roguish-smuggler-encased-in-carbonate’ look a try? Available for pre-order on Entertainment Earth, this Han Solo in Carobonite costume is pretty self-explanatory. It consists of an inflatable carbonite slab with battery-operated fan, grey gloves, and a Han Solo in carbonite mask.

    Official Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 – Blackout Battle Royale Trailer

    September 7th, 2018

    Hang It, Fire! – 60mm NERF Mortar

    September 6th, 2018

    The 60mm NERF Mortar is not an official NERF product, but with its large foam mortar shells, the inspiration is clear. Modeled after an actual 60mm Mortar, the NERF Mortar is made of plastic, weighs about 3 lbs., and comes with three foam mortar shells. The reported range is just around 6 meters, so you’ll have to forgo any long distance shots, but it’d be a neat addition to any NERF war.

    If you’re curious about the plastic cylinder that accompanies the shells, that’s the priming device. There’s a spring assembly built into every round, and that priming device is used to depress the spring which then locks into place, readying the round to fire. Once the round is primed and dropped into the mortar tube, the mechanism is activated by a protrusion in the tube and the round comes shooting out, like a real mortar; actually pretty ingenious.

    Cobalt Kinetics EDGE and TEAM Hand Guards Now Available

    September 5th, 2018

    Washington Utah, Sep,5 2018:

    Cobalt Kinetics has added another pair of great products to their growing selection of AR-15 Accessories.

    The Cobalt Kinetics handguard is now available as a universal accessory for the AR-15. This exciting product release has been long-awaited by the DIY AR-15 crowd. 2 handguard models are available, and named for the Cobalt Rifle with which they’re included. The EDGE (characterized by the aggressive points at the muzzle end)

    and the TEAM – tailored for practical competition. It lacks the pointed ends found on the EDGE handguard.

    They’re machined from a 11-pound block of solid 7075 rather than an extrusion which can warp or stress relieve during machining. The result of this extra effort is a perfectly straight finished part- this keeps iron sights centered over the barrel. Features include 2 picatinny rail sections at the muzzle, top and bottom for back-up irons sights and bipods or weapon lights. M-lok pockets are provided on the entire length at 3, 6, and 9 o’clock for unlimited mounting options.

    QD sling cups are also present at each end, and on both sides.

    Where the handguard mates up with the receiver, there’s an extra 1.5” of picatinny rail to allow more mounting options for the main optic.

    These handguards attach to an AR-15 upper by way of a clever 2-piece barrel nut and sleeve.

    The barrel nut has 2 offset rings of 12 threaded holes. The sleeve has 2 rings of 8 countersunk holes for a total of 16. Through some thoughtful engineering, this combination allows for the nut and sleeve to be screwed together at any of 48 locations using 3 screws. The result is a nut that provides perfect alignment and gap-free mounting on any upper receiver.

    A proprietary nut driver is provided.

    Tools required include a proper receiver-holding fixture, ½” drive torque wrench, 3/32” and 2.5mm allen keys. An in/lb. torque driver is recommended for the small screws.

    Skylar Stewart, VP at Cobalt commented, “The handguard has by far been the most requested item since our EDGE rifle hit the market in 2015. It took some clever engineering from our team to develop the barrel nut assembly that will work well with all of the different brands of upper receivers without leaving timing or gap issues. A gap between the upper receiver and the handguard is not acceptable to us. The original 16” handguards are in stock and ready to ship. We’ve also got some shorter versions in the works. Look for those to be available toward the end of this year.

    Both the TEAM and EDGE handguards retail for $285 and can be found on Cobalt’s website at https://www.cobaltkinetics.com/accessories/hand-guards

    Rogue Fitness – Cast Weight Vest Plates

    September 3rd, 2018

    This article was originally featured on Soldier Systems Daily.

    featuring a double curved shape, these cast weight plates measure 11.25” in length and 9.25” in width, making them compatible with the 5.11 TacTec Plate Carrier, Condor Sentry Plate Carrier, and other similar weight vests on the market.

    NERF – N-Strike Infinus

    September 1st, 2018

    NERF blasters have been getting pretty creative as of late, and the latest edition to the N-Strike line, the Infinus, is no exception. A fairly bulky design, the Infinus comes with a detachable 30-round drum, and has top mounted N-Strike rails for the attachment of accessories. What makes the Infinus unique, and where it gets its name, is the motorized Speed-Load technology which will load individual darts into the drum via a loading port that’s built into the receiver. Check out the commercial below to see this feature in action.

    SentryShield Introduces Bulletproof Backpack Insert

    August 31st, 2018

    Maker of tactical personal protection offers on-the-go security with NIJ Level IIIA-compliant bulletproof insert.

    SOUTH BEND, IN (Aug. 27, 2018) – SentryShield®, maker of personal tactical protection, today introduces its signature bulletproof backpack insert. Available in two sizes (backpack and handbag), the SentryShield insert is engineered with 24 layers of ultra-high molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) to be NIJ Level IIIA compliant and is capable of stopping a variety of ammunition.

    Designed to be travel friendly, the SentryShield is easily concealed and carried in backpacks, laptop bags and other personal belongings. Despite being eight times stronger than steel, SentryShield contains no metal and won’t set off metal detectors in schools, airports or other secure locations.

    “We live in difficult times,” says Jason Wakefield, chief marketing officer. “But ignoring the reality of those times won’t make us any safer. We believe that any measure of protection you can provide yourself or loved ones is a worthy investment, especially one that is always with you as opposed to an afterthought.”

    WATCH: SENTRYSHIELD DEMONSTRATION VIDEO

    The backpack (16.25 by 11.75 inches) and handbag (14 by 10 inches) versions are both only 10 millimeters thick, and weigh only 1.46 and 1.74 pounds respectively, making them a practically unnoticeable addition to any bag for students and travelers.

    But despite their light weight and slim design, these NIJ Level III-A anti-ballistic inserts are capable of stopping a variety of rounds including 9-millimeter FMJ rounds, .44 Magnum bullets, .357 SIG ammunition and 12-gauge slugs thanks to the cross-layered UHMWPE and high-density foam trauma pad.

    “Nothing can offer a guarantee in a tragic situation like one involving an active shooter, but even something as small as SentryShield has the potential to make a very big difference,” says Wakefield.

    The SentryShield retails for $120 and is available now at SentryShieldUSA.com for an introductory price of $89.99. A second SentryShield is available for 50 percent off when purchasing one at full price and entering code Protect50 at checkout for a limited time.

  • NRA National Police Shooting Championships Return To Albuquerque Sept. 24-26

    August 30th, 2018

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – The 2018 NRA National Police Shooting Championships are scheduled for Sept. 24-26, 2018, in Albuquerque, New Mexico, uniting law enforcement professionals from across the world to test their marksmanship skills in an exciting, challenging competition.

    A shooting tradition since 1962, the NPSC is open to all public and private law enforcement professionals and select law enforcement members of the U.S. Armed Forces. Participation in the event does not require an invitation, and registrants can shoot in as few or many matches as they wish.

    Competitors need not be High Master shooters to attend or excel at the NPSC. In fact, High Masters and Masters make up the smallest group of shooters who attend the championships. Like all NRA Police Pistol Combat (PPC) tournaments, participants compete against shooters in their own skill classification level. Those who have not participated in an NRA PPC tournament or hold no PPC classification may compete as an Unclassified Shooter.

    The NPSC will once again feature the New Mexico Challenge on Saturday, Sept. 22, a free event open to officers who work for New Mexico law enforcement agencies and have not fired in a PPC Match before, as well as for alumni shooters from past New Mexico Challenge events. This event exposes new shooters to the NRA PPC Program and gives them a chance to run through the Stock Service Match in a relaxed atmosphere while receiving shooting tips from experienced shooters.

    “We believe that a law enforcement officer cannot receive enough firearms training, and firearms competition is a direct extension of training,” said Glen Hoyer, Director of NRA’s Law Enforcement Division. “We welcome law enforcement professionals from across the country and around the world to join us in Albuquerque for a challenging, enriching and fun championship tradition.”

    In addition to the shooting matches, tuition-free armorer courses, including courses from Glock, SIG Sauer, Walther, Double Star and Smith & Wesson, are scheduled on Saturday, Sept. 22. The courses will be available on a first-come, first-served basis and pre-registration is required. The 2018 Law Enforcement Equipment Expo will also take place during the NPSC, allowing law enforcement professionals to meet local and national firearm and equipment manufacturers and explore new products.

    Support for the NRA Law Enforcement Division and the 2018 NRA National Police Shooting Championships is graciously provided by Ruger, Mossberg, Kahr Firearms Group, Rocky Brands, Odor Crusher, Otis Technology, and TRU-SPEC. Additional support for this year’s championships is provided by Nine Line Apparel and Present Arms.

    August 29th, 2018

    The long-awaited Cyberpunk 2077 from noted Polish game developer CD Projekt Red now has a lengthy 48 minute gameplay demo to check out.

    The minifigures alone are cool enough to function as a stand-alone set, but this is technically an add-on pack for Brickmania’s MH-6 Little Bird set.

    August 26th, 2018

    Defense Distributed is offering this limited edition ‘Come And Take It 2.0’ patch. The patch is 2.5″ x 3″, hook and loop backed, and features a file icon above which is a black star, and below which are the words “Come And Take It”. For those who are unfamiliar, the design is based on the Gonzales Battle Flag featured at the Battle of Gonzales, the first battle in the Texas Revolution. Proceeds from the sale of this patch will benefit Defense Distributed and the Second Amendment Foundation in their ongoing efforts against 21 states currently trying to stop the publication of firearms blueprints online.
