NEWINGTON, N.H. (July 31, 2014) — SIG SAUER® has launched a redesigned webstore, offering an expanded selection of SIG SAUER branded clothing, merchandise, accessories, and a new line of Mitch Rosen designed holsters.

The SIG SAUER webstore has always been the premier online resource for factory parts and accessories. Now fans can show their affinity for the SIG SAUER brand with a selection of men’s and women’s shirts, sweatshirts, hats, and drinkware.

Food Network Star Sunny Anderson ‘Grills for Heroes’

Monday, June 30th, 2014

U.S. Air Force veteran Sunny Anderson and the Propane Education & Research Council team up to collect recipes and raise money for veterans in new safe grilling campaign

WASHINGTON (June 30, 2014) — Today the Propane Education & Research Council and Food Network personality Sunny Anderson announce the launch of Grilling for Heroes, a campaign to collect grilling recipes and donations supporting veterans, while raising awareness of safe propane grilling practices.

Submit Best BBQ, Grill Recipes
Now through Sept. 30, 2014, grilling enthusiasts can submit their best recipes online at GrillingForHeroes.com along with a short anecdote about what the military means to them. After the submission period closes, the top 100 entries will be compiled into an online cookbook, which will be available for download Memorial Day 2015. Anderson will also choose her favorite recipe and story submission, and the winner will receive a free trip to Washington, D.C.

“Grilling is not only an American pastime but also one of my favorite ways to prepare delicious food,” Anderson says. “The opportunity to educate my fans and grillers about basic propane grill safety while also honoring fellow military personnel and veterans is deeply important to me.”

Goodwill donations from participating propane retailers and the public will be accepted in exchange for free downloads of the ecookbook next summer. One hundred percent of the proceeds will benefit veterans through Hope For The Warriors, a nonprofit whose programs enhance the quality of life for post-9/11 service members and their families.

Top Grill Safety Tips
According to Weber’s annual GrillWatch survey, more than 60 percent of American home grillers use a propane gas grill. As July Fourth — the top grilling holiday of the year — approaches, PERC reminds grillers to follow important safety tips:

1. Follow instructions. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions for assembling, using, and maintaining your grill.

2. Keep it outdoors. Outdoor propane grills should be located on a level surface at least five feet from the house, siding, outdoor furniture, and anything else that could be a fire hazard.

3. Be smart when lighting and relighting. Keep the lid open and don’t lean over the grill when lighting it. If the flame goes out, turn off the gas and refer to the owner’s manual. At a minimum, the National Fire Protection Association advises grillers to turn off the gas, keep the lid open, and wait at least 15 minutes before relighting.

4. Be present. A true grill master never leaves a grill unattended.

5. Check for leaks. Use a soapy water solution to check connections for leaks. Expanding bubbles indicate a leak. Follow this procedure when replacing a cylinder.

For more information about the campaign, for safe grilling tips, or to submit a grilling recipe and military story, visit GrillingForHeroes.com.

Gunwebsites has designed 7.62×39 and 7.62x54r spam can Velcro patches, yet found the borders were “off” and decided to gauge interest “as-is” by holding a funding campaign on Kickstarter. The campaign was successful enough that they even expanded the line to include a 5.45×39 spam can patch. Although the campaign has reached its funding goal, there are still backing rewards available for those who are interested.
