New ClimateCase Protects Smartphones From Temperature Extremes

Tuesday, August 22nd, 2017

(Newbury Park, California) – It’s a new product that can prevent a cellphone issue that almost everyone has faced at one time or another. After just 15 minutes below 32°F or above 95°F a cellphone may shut down completely to protect itself leaving you vulnerable and out of touch. The ClimateCase has been launched to address that issue by providing protection for smartphones from overheating and freezing.

ClimateCase’s multi-layered neoprene insulation provides thermal protection for smartphones. The patent pending technology will prevent any smartphone from overheating in extremely hot conditions and from freezing in extremely cold conditions.

“Prolonged exposure to harsh temperatures can permanently damage smartphones and its internal battery,” said ClimateCase’s CEO Lisa Lambert. “With the ClimateCase, there is no need to take the risk.”

Simply place the cell phone inside a refrigerator-cooled or microwave-warmed ClimateCase before encountering extremely hot or cold weather. Or if a phone suddenly stops working, ClimateCase can quickly restore it to its optimal temperature in less than 60 seconds.

“A few years back I took my 13-year-old twins to Arizona for a vacation,” says Lambert. “Within minutes of getting set up at the pool, everyone’s phones started overheating. We spent most of the day walking back and forth from the pool to our hotel room to cool down our phones. We even put them in the mini-fridge to speed up the cooling process. I thought, we CAN’T be the only people dealing with this issue. What if we had some type of pouch that would keep your phone cool? And from there, the ClimateCase was born.”

ClimateCase also protects smartphones against accidental drops which is the number one cause of cell phone damage. ClimateCase is machine washable and fits most cell phone brands and models and is available in multiple colors: charcoal, pink, orange, camouflage and floral.

This video details the use and benefits of the ClimateCase:

ClimateCase sells for $34.99 and is available at:

GERBER ANNOUNCES NEW SHARKBELLY IPA
IN PARTNERSHIP W/ BONEYARD BEER

PORTLAND, OREGON (August 10th, 2017) – GERBER boasts a long history in the Pacific Northwest, designing quality knives and tools that are purpose built for hard working individuals and outdoor enthusiasts. The products may vary in application and user, but one appreciation runs true throughout the greater PNW: that of a good craft beer. When GERBER learned that the folks at Boneyard Beer in Bend, Oregon carry GERBER knives as their everyday tool of choice, the mission was clear: check out the operation and get the new Sharkbelly knife into their hands. What began as a brewery tour and product photoshoot, quickly turned into a badass partnership that taste buds all over the region can benefit from.

Introducing the GERBER Sharkbelly IPA: a special-edition brew by Boneyard Beer.

“After working with the GERBER team and using their gear for so many years, we aimed for a brew that matched the bold and uncompromising attitude that GERBER represents. Our company cultures, branding, and attitudes blend so well, this project has been exciting from the get-go. The Sharkbelly is an everyday carry knife with no frills that is easy to use; likewise, the Sharkbelly IPA is a straightforward, clean, crisp IPA that cuts to the chase and leaves you wanting more.” – Nick Murray, Director of Sales & Marketing, Boneyard Beer

The announcement comes ahead of a limited-run distribution in the Portland, Oregon metro area, aiming to give GERBER fans a chance to experience the hometown brand in a new way. Bend locals can also find it on tap at Boneyard’s tasting room, and if demand calls for it the Sharkbelly IPA may find a place in the permanent rotation for the brewery.

The Sharkbelly is an update to the classic everyday carry pocket knife with lightweight utility and standout features. Designed and built in GERBER’s Portland, Oregon manufacturing facility, this American made knife is available in partially serrated and full fine edge blade variations. The 420HC modern sheepsfoot-style blade is easily deployed with a sizable thumb hole, revealing flat top serrations that are easy to sharpen on a flat stone and practical for daily abuse. The tactile SharkSkin Grip™ succeeds in function and aesthetics with unidirectional scales that provide additional traction when in hand – smooth in one direction and grippy in the other.

Look for the distinctive tap handle featuring the GERBER logo and a hammerhead shark swathed in an American flag, an ode to two unapologetically badass brands that serve as the masters of their respective crafts.

Polymer80 – Announcing The PF940v2 Coming This FALL!

Friday, August 11th, 2017

Polymer80, Inc. bolsters their product line with a long-awaited update.

Tacoma, WA – July 27th, 2017- Polymer80, the leading developer and manufacturer of 80% polymer AR and pistol products has unveiled the PF940v2™, the next generation update to their best-selling PF940v1™ Glock®-compatible 80% pistol frame.

“We have learned quite a bit since the release of the v1 frame.” said Alex Brodsky, VP of Marketing at Polymer80. “The PF940C™ compact frame, for example, was designed with significantly improved ergonomics and aftermarket features. Since the compact’s release, an overwhelming majority of our customers and dealers have asked that we update the original standard size frame with similar features.”

The PF940v2™ is compatible with components for 3-pin: 9mm G17, 34, 17L; .40S&W G22, 35, 24; and .357Sig G31.

Some of the major changes seen in PF940v2™ include a slimmer grip that is available with an aggressive texture or blank ReadyMod™ style, a double undercut on the trigger guard, and a stainless steel rear rail module, which has been the most requested feature. The PF940v2™ comes with a Picatinny/STANAG compliant accessory rail that features an embedded blank serialization plate. Much like its predecessor, the PF940v2™ kit includes a finishing jig, drill bits, and an end mill, which allows the end-user to successfully convert the frame into a functioning firearm in the privacy of their home.

“We’ve been conducting PF940v2™ range tests for two months now,” said Mike Guttridge, VP of Product. “The aftermarket product compatibility tests have been concluded as well, and we feel confident to start the initial production. We hope to bring the PF940v2™ frame kit to market sometime in the fall.”

What is an 80% Receiver?

An 80% Receiver is a partially completed piece of material that requires special tooling and skills to be completed and considered a firearm. Unlike a firearm receiver it is not required to be transferred through a Federal Firearms Licensed holder (FFL).

G2 Research 12ga RIP Round

Wednesday, August 9th, 2017

World’s Deadliest 12 Gauge Round

Winder, GA, August 9, 2017, G2 Research’s NEW extreme performance self-defense 12 gauge round.

In development for over three years by G2 Research this new high-performance 12 gauge self-defense round will hit the market this Fall. The all brass 303-grain individually machined CNC slug is designed for incredible performance against soft targets.

First of all the G2 slug is 0.725-inch in diameter (about a quarter inch larger than a .50 cal. Bullet). When combined with the proven G2 Research R.I.P. technology which releases six trocars (large metal petals) into the target the result is incredible and instant devastation.

Upon impact the six trocars will open, detach and independently spread through the target some 6-inches wide delivering 9-11 inches of penetration resulting in massive damage and shock. The .70 caliber base of the slug will continue forward for another 5-6 inches.

Recoil is greatly reduced due to the lightweight all brass 303 grain slug.

The $49.99 price for five-rounds is painful but this is not intended for shooting at tin cans and cinder blocks. The typical scenario is the average person will go to the range and launch a round or two at a target of some type and load the remainder into their gun for the time should the need arise.

Mike Nickerson, G2’s marketing director says–“This 12 gauge round is very specific in its design and mission; that of a person defending his life and/or that of his family. The real question is how much value we put on put on our own life or that of those we are protecting.”

Specifications:

  • 12 gauge
  • 0.725-inch diameter 303 grain all brass precision CNC machined slug
  • 1430 FPS velocity depending on barrel length, etc.
  • Effective performance design range 0-10 yards
  • MSRP $49.99 box of five
  • IMPORTANT NOTES: This round is designed for self-defense only and has a true effective performance expansion range of 10 yards. Several reasons for this: Much beyond that range the slug will begin to yaw which can affect correct strike angle for it to open as designed. Beyond the design distance of 10 yards it will still do massive damage however.

    Second, it is not designed to be used for hunting, sporting or barrier penetration–it is designed for self-defense. Self-defense means just that and it is difficult to convince a jury that self-defense much past 30 feet really is self-defense.

    Will it penetrate hard objects such as doors, walls, etc.? Of course but it may not expand as designed and, shooting through doors and walls presents a difficult legal case of self-defense in court.

    This round must NOT be fired in guns with rifling, compensators, chokes or modified barrel cylinders, etc. The only type of barrel safely used is a modern smooth bore riot type shotgun barrel.

    SIG SAUER Issues Voluntary Upgrade Of P320 Pistol

    Tuesday, August 8th, 2017

    P320 pistol meets requirements for industry and government safety standards;
    performance enhancements optimize function, safety, and reliability.

    Newington, NH (August 8, 2017) – The P320 meets U.S. standards for safety, including the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) / Sporting Arms Ammunition Manufacturers’ Institute, Inc. (SAAMI®), National Institute of Justice (NIJ), as well as rigorous testing protocols for global military and law enforcement agencies.

    The design of the SIG SAUER P320 overcomes the most significant safety concern in striker-fired pistols today: the practice of pressing the trigger for disassembly. This can be performed with a round in the chamber which has resulted in numerous incidents of property damage, physical injury, and death. The disassembly process of the P320, however, uses a take-down lever rather than pressing the trigger, eliminating the possibility of discharge during the disassembly process.

    Recent events indicate that dropping the P320 beyond U.S. standards for safety may cause an unintentional discharge.

    As a result of input from law enforcement, government and military customers, SIG has developed a number of enhancements in function, reliability, and overall safety including drop performance. SIG SAUER is offering these enhancements to its customers. Details of this program will be available at sigsauer.com on Monday, August 14, 2017.

    The M17 variant of the P320, selected by the U.S. government as the U.S. Army’s Modular Handgun System (MHS), is not affected by the Voluntary Upgrade.

    “SIG SAUER is committed to our approach on innovation, optimization, and performance, ensuring we produce the finest possible products,” said Ron Cohen, President and CEO of SIG SAUER. “Durability, reliability and safety, as well as end-user confidence in the SIG SAUER brand are the priorities for our team.”

    SIG SAUER Reaffirms Safety of P320 Pistol

    Friday, August 4th, 2017

    Striker-fired pistol exceeds safety standards of ANSI/SAAMI® and U.S. military testing

    Newington, NH (August 4, 2017) – In response to social media rumors questioning the safety of the P320 pistol, a variant of which was selected by the U.S. government as the U.S. Army’s Modular Handgun System (MHS), SIG SAUER, Inc. has full confidence in the reliability, durability and safety of its striker-fired handgun platform. There have been zero (0) reported drop-related P320 incidents in the U.S. commercial market, with hundreds of thousands of guns delivered to date.

    The P320 meets and exceeds all U.S. standards for safety, including the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers’ Institute, Inc. (SAAMI), as well as rigorous testing protocols for global military and law enforcement agencies.

    All SIG SAUER pistols incorporate effective mechanical safeties to ensure they only fire when the trigger is pressed. However, like any mechanical device, exposure to acute conditions (e.g. shock, vibration, heavy or repeated drops) may have a negative effect on these safety mechanisms and cause them to not work as designed. This language is common to owner’s manuals of major handgun manufacturers.

    As a result, individual attempts to perform drop tests outside of professionally controlled environments should not be attempted.

    “SIG SAUER is committed to producing only the finest products,” said Ron Cohen, President and CEO of SIG SAUER. “Safety and reliability have been and always will be paramount to the SIG SAUER brand.”

    Official Film Series Bundle Based On The Globally Renowned Halo Franchise Now Available On iTunes In The U.S.A, Courtesy Of Content Media

    Tuesday, August 1st, 2017

    July 31ST, 2017, London, UK – Today Content Media announced the release the official film series based on the globally renowned best-selling Halo franchise only in the U.S.A. The bundle includes “Halo Legends,” “Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn,” “Halo: Nightfall” and “Halo: The Fall of Reach,” and is available on iTunes.

    Created in collaboration with some of the world’s leading animators from Japan, “Halo Legends” draws you into the center of humanity’s ongoing battles with the Covenant, dynamically depicted in cutting-edge animation styles that deliver breathtaking visuals and gripping adventure. “Halo Legends” dives deep into the rich Halo universe and explores the Master Chief’s mysterious origins, advanced combat capabilities of Spartans, and the tense rivalry between Spartans and Orbital Drop Shock Troopers (ODSTs). “Halo Legends” is an 119-minute long animated film starring Atsuko Tanaka (“Ghost in the Shell”), Josh Grelle (“Mass Effect: Paragon Lost”) and Greg Ayres (“Samurai 7”).

    “Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn” is a coming-of-age story that follows cadet Thomas Lasky at Corbulo Academy, a 26th-century military training academy. Following in the footsteps of his mother and brother, Lasky is unsure of his future within the military but is forced to act when the academy is attacked by a massive force of Covenant, a religious alliance of aliens. Directed by Stewart Hendler, “Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn” is a 90-minute Live-Action movie starring Tom Green, Ty Olsson, Max Carver, Daniel Cudmore, Anna Popplewell and Osric Chau.

    Set between the events of “Halo 4” and “Halo 5: Guardians,” “Halo: Nightfall” is the second full-length live-action feature for the Halo® franchise. From Executive Producer Ridley Scott (“Prometheus”, “Blade Runner”) and award-winning Director Sergio Mimica-Gezzan (“Battlestar Galactica”, “The Pillars Of The Earth”), “Halo: Nightfall” features an all-star cast including Mike Colter (“Luke Cage,” “The Good Wife”), Christina Chong (“24: Live Another Day”), Steven Waddington (“Sleepy Hollow”) and Luke Neal (“Final Prayer”). “Halo: Nightfall,” tells the personal story of Jameson Locke, a legendary manhunter and agent with the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI), Earth’s most powerful and secretive military branch. At 98-minutes, the film provides the background to this pivotal new character in the Halo universe, who eventually becomes a Spartan-IV in “Halo 5: Guardians.”

    “Halo: The Fall of Reach” is based on the namesake Halo novel by Eric Nylund. This 65-minute feature tells the dramatic tale of the origin and intrigue behind the SPARTAN program that propelled characters like the Master Chief and Dr. Catherine Halsey into the pantheon of Halo lore. The story reveals the events that brought Master Chief and Blue Team together, including their Spartan training and their daring mission to strike back at the Covenant during the first days of the deadly alien invasion. The animated film was produced and directed by SEQUENCE, the award-winning Vancouver-based animation studio responsible for the “Terminals” featured in “Halo 4” and “Halo 2: Anniversary,” and this marks their most ambitious and high-fidelity Halo animation yet.

    Exclusively published by Microsoft Studios and developed by 343 Industries, the Halo franchise is an award-winning collection of properties, over $5 billion in worldwide sales to date, that has transcended video games and grown into a global entertainment phenomenon. Now, Halo fans in the U.S.A can go beyond the game and immerse themselves in the Halo universe with this special bundle, available only on iTunes.

    AIR BOLT BY AIR VENTURI .35 Caliber Added to Line Up

    Monday, July 31st, 2017

    Solon, Ohio (July 31, 2017) – Air Venturi, an exclusive airgun, airsoft and ammunition importer of leading international airgun brands, is introducing a brand new addition to its innovative Air Bolt line. The latest release brings .35 caliber Air Bolts to accompany the successful .50 caliber Air Bolt introduced in 2016. This new caliber increases the versatility of .35 airguns, as well as offering new possibilities of hunting different sized game effectively.

    “With the success of the .50 caliber Air Bolt, it was the next logical step to open the product line up to more calibers,” said Air Venturi Director of Business Development, Paul Milkovich. “The .35 caliber is one of the most popular ammunition choices, and this release opens up arrow shooting to a massive audience. Whether you want to shoot targets or wild game, the .35 cal Air Bolt has got you covered.”

    According to Milkovich, “The Air Bolts in the new caliber still provide tremendous knock-down power and velocity. When we tested the .35 caliber, 375 grain Air Bolt out of the Recluse, we consistently achieved velocities around 530 fps (feet per second) with 234 fpe (foot pounds of energy). With these kinds of numbers, it’s easy to see how the Air Bolt will transform your .35 caliber airgun into a bolt-slinging powerhouse capable of taking trophy-sized big game.”

    “We tested our .35 bolts in our in-house range and achieved 1 inch groups at 30 yards. They’re so precise, you have to be careful you don’t shoot your own arrows already lodged in the target–they are that accurate.”

    Both .50 and .35 caliber Air Bolts are constructed of 100 percent Hi-Modulus Carbon Fiber with a small outside diameter that produces maximum speed and accuracy. With the 100 grain field tip, the .35 cal Air Bolt weighs 375 grains in total.

    IDAHO (July 25, 2017) – Thanks to the national nonprofit Hope For The Warriors and its Outdoor Adventures program, six combat wounded veterans recently participated in three, multi-day, bear hunts South of Lewiston, Idaho along the Selway River.

    Hope For The Warriors’ Outdoor Adventures program provides adaptive opportunities for wounded heroes to participate in sporting activities in the great outdoors. Service members, who previously embraced an outdoorsman lifestyle, as well as those new to traditional outdoor sports, are introduced to recreational opportunities on the road to recovery.

    Led by Hope For The Warriors Director of Outdoor Adventure and retired Marine, Ken Sutherby, each hunt aimed to enable wounded veterans with a challenge, introduce a sense of camaraderie with other veterans and provide a source of food for each hunter’s family. In addition, the experience encourages healing and aims to revitalize each veteran by proving he/she are capable and can be independent, regardless of injuries.

    Sutherby shares why this experience is so beneficial to veterans, “Hunting is a therapeutic avenue for many veterans. Often, veterans are experiencing extreme social isolation as they assimilate to post-combat life resulting in declining self-worth as they evaluate their current lifestyle compared to their former military life. Therefore, they are excited with the challenge and placed back in a position of leadership and trust as they alone are responsible for the outcome.

    “In addition, as we make the long drives up the mountain roads or sit around the camp fire, the hunts provide a chance to address any and all areas of conflict in their lives and communicate with other wounded veterans who have experienced the same effects of combat and have fought the same battle to recovery,” adds Sutherby.

    San Antonio, Texas-based Army Master Sergeant Raymond Soto shares what this experience meant to him. “Attending the bear hunt was a therapeutic and great time spent with other wounded veterans, said Soto.

    “With its never ending distractions, life moves too fast and spending time with other combat veterans in a peaceful quiet place like Idaho was what I needed. Sharing memories and knowing that we all carry some sort of continuous pain, emotional and/or physical, it’s always a therapeutic experience when we get together and feel that bond that we all miss.

    “In addition, I spent 11.5 hours in a tree stand with no cell phone service or internet so it allowed me to enjoy the peaceful outdoors reflecting on my deployments and those brothers that are no longer with us. I needed the time; being completely alone and just remembering,” adds Soto.

    Hope For The Warriors created the Outdoor Adventures Program in 2010 to provide adaptive opportunities for wounded heroes to participate in sporting activities in the great outdoors. In 2012, the organization recognized the therapeutic benefits for the family members and expanded the program to include spouses and children of wounded and fallen service members.

    Bushnell Offers New Purpose-Built AR Optics

    Saturday, July 15th, 2017

    OVERLAND PARK, Kansas – July 14, 2017 – Bushnell, an industry leader in high-performance optical solutions for more than 65 years, has extended its popular AR Optics line with four additional sights that are each optimized for the modern sporting rifle.

    Bushnell’s line of AR Optics is already the category leader for MSRs. New this year, the AR Optics line has grown with the release of two new purpose-built, caliber-specific riflescopes, the cutting-edge Accelerate 3x prism sight and the ambidextrous Transition 3x Magnifier.

    “We looked at the most popular trends in AR rifles today and then set out to craft optical solutions that meet the demands placed on those guns by serious shooters,” said AR Optics line manager Bryan Parrish. “These optics are built to perform at any level, yet won’t break the bank.”

    The 6.5 Creedmoor has quickly become a favorite of long-distance shooters and hunters alike. Bushnell’s new AR Optics 4.5-18x 40mm scope with Drop Zone 6.5 Creedmoor reticle is designed to maximize the round’s performance by providing holdover points for shots out to 600 yards. Tactical-style target turrets allow lightning-fast adjustments, and the side parallax focus allows clear target images at any range. The fully multi-coated optics give a bright, crisp sight picture and are housed in a durable 1-inch aircraft-grade aluminum tube.

    Bushnell has also added an optic for shooters favoring MSRs chambered in the popular .300 Blackout. The new Bushnell AR Optics 1-4x24mm illuminated scope is equipped with a specially-designed DropZone .300 Blackout Illuminated reticle. The reticle features holdover points calibrated to both subsonic and supersonic .300 Blackout ballistics. The scope’s first focal plane design performs like a high-performance red dot at low power. When turned up to 4x magnification, it offers holdover points out to 300 yards. Magnification changes are nearly instantaneous with Bushnell’s exclusive ThrowDown PCL (power charge lever).

    Gas guns like MSRs are well-suited for compact optics. Yet red dots don’t offer the magnification sometimes needed to reach downrange. The gray area between these two options isn’t so gray with the new Bushnell AR Optics Accelerate 4X Prism Scope. It has the compact stature of a red dot with the 4x magnification of a riflescope. The new, illuminated BTR-3 reticle in the Accelerate offers five brightness settings in both red and green. The center circle and red dot work together for quick acquisition, with drop points for long range shots. The mil-based design works with any caliber firearm.

    Rounding out the new additions is the AR Optics Transition 3X Magnifier. Simply mount it behind a red dot optic with the ambidextrous flip mount. Engage the 3X magnifier when you need it, and flip it out of the way when you don’t. The Transition 3x Magnifier pairs perfectly with Bushnell’s AR Optics TRS-25, but works with any red dot. It’s built with fully multi-coated optics that provide optimal light transmission and is waterproof, fog proof and shock proof.

    “With rugged durability, high-quality optics and coatings, and a price any AR rifle owner can afford, these new sights embody the AR Optics line,” Parrish said. “And they further expand the AR Optics supremacy within this key category of the firearms market.”

    Bushnell, a Vista Outdoor brand, is one of the most recognizable and trusted names in precision hunting, tactical and recreational optics and accessories. For more information, visit www.bushnell.com/aroptics.

    Monday, July 10th, 2017

    Melville, NY (July 11, 2017) – Nikon introduces another member to the recently introduced BLACK riflescope series, a new category of dedicated optics with models engineered for both precision long-range rifle and action-shooting AR enthusiasts.

    The BLACK X1000 features a Side Focus Parallax Adjustment, which allows adjustment without changing shooting position and Illuminated control with 10 intensity levels with incremental “OFF” between settings, allowing you to be at your favorite illumination setting with “OFF” rotating in either direction.

    BLACK series riflescopes all feature a 30mm main body tube built with aircraft-grade aluminum alloy and Type 3 hard anodizing, providing exceptional ruggedness and optimum strength-to-weight ratios. Each riflescope has an optical system built from Nikon’s lead- and arsenic-free glass, which is optimized with the company’s full multilayer coating on all air-to-glass lens surfaces. Spring-loaded instant zero-reset turrets provide precise, repeatable corrections. Like all Nikon riflescopes, the new BLACK series is backed by the company’s No Fault policy for repair or replacement.

    Nikon’s new BLACK X1000 6-24x50SF IL X-MOA will be available Summer 2017.

    Shell Shock Technologies Launches ShellTech, Announces Plant Opening in Kentucky

    Friday, June 30th, 2017

    ShellTech, a new subsidiary of Shell Shock Technologies, will open high-volume ammunition casings plant, creating 50 new jobs, in Eubank, Kentucky, manufacturing Shell Shock’s NAS3 cases.

    Westport, Conn. (June 2017) – 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 the launch of its newly formed high-volume manufacturing subsidiary, ShellTech. The new manufacturing plant will open in Pulaski County in Eubank, Kentucky, focusing on the manufacture of Shell Shock Technologies’ NAS3 cases. With an investment of approximately $3.2 million, ShellTech aims to create 50 new full-time jobs within Pulaski County.

    ShellTech will assemble NAS3 cases under a long-term contract from its parent company. The 14,000-square foot facility was previously used for the contract-manufacturing and loading of all SIG SAUER ammunition. ShellTech will begin by assembling Shell Shock Technologies’ popular 9mm cases, but will soon add 5.56 mm, .308, .45 ACP, 380 and .40 S&W cases, along with an assortment of other popular pistol and rifle calibers.

    “We are proud to announce the creation of our subsidiary ShellTech; this new high-volume manufacturing operation will significantly accelerate the rollout of Shell Shock’s NAS3 case technology. We are especially happy to be opening this plant in Pulaski County and can’t thank the county, the Commonwealth of Kentucky or the various regional and local development agencies enough for helping to make this plant a reality,” commented Craig Knight, president and CEO of Shell Shock Technologies and ShellTech.

    The Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority (KEDFA) has preliminarily approved ShellTech for tax incentives of up to $800,000 through the Kentucky Business Investment program, which is intended to spur investment and job growth within the community. In addition, ShellTech can receive resources, such as no-cost recruitment and job placement services, reduced-cost customized training and job training incentives, through the Kentucky Skills Network.

    About Shell Shock’s NAS3 Cases:

    Shell Shock’s 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).
