BOSS StrongBox Raising Funds For Gold Star Teen Adventures

Monday, June 4th, 2018

BOSS StrongBox will be hosting an fundraiser raffle online with a goal to raise over $5,000 for Gold Star Teen Adventures; a non-profit whose mission is to provide healing, mentor-ship, development, and opportunity to the children of Special Operations Service Members who lost their lives in the line of duty.

Gold Star Teen Adventures was started by Kent Solheim, a Special Operations Service Member who was seriously wounded in combat in Iraq in 2007, ultimately losing his right leg. Kent’s experiences on his road to recovery inspired the creation of Gold Star Teen Adventures. Kent, a father of two, realized that if he had not made it home, he would have still wanted his children to know the brotherhood of the Special Operations community that he had grown to love, and to share the adventures that his career had permitted him to do.

BOSS StrongBox has teamed up with other leading brands to provide over 20 different prizes with a total retail value of over $5,000. Ranging from Pelican Cases to Streamlight TLR, Blac-Rac Weapon Retention Systems, Gerber Multi-Tools and more, there will be plenty of great prizes to win.

With raffle tickets selling for only $10 each, it won’t cost you much for a chance to win.

At the end of the day, it’s all about the cause and doing what we can to help support programs like Gold Star Teen Adventures and give back to the families who have served our country and ultimately gave their lives for our freedom.

The fundraiser starts June 1st and will run through the month, ending June 29th. You’ll want to follow along on Instagram (@BossStrongBox) to get updates and watch the live raffle take place at the end of the month (note: you won’t have to watch live to win, if you’re name is pulled we’ll contact you).

DroneShield Ltd Announces DroneGun Tactical

Thursday, February 1st, 2018

DroneShield Ltd announces the DroneGun Tactical product, available for purchase by qualified end-users.

The release of DroneGun Tactical follows the release of DroneGun MKII in late 2017. DroneGun Tactical is much more compact than the MKII model but has a shorter range.

Features:

• No backpack – the product is entirely self contained within the rifle body, while maintaining lightweight and long effective range (over 1km).

• Addition of 433Mhz and 915Mhz frequencies, to ensure complete effectiveness across drone models.

• Ergonomic body and controls.

• Further alignment with standard military specifications, including standardised NATO military battery power.

DroneGun Tactical is not intended to supercede DroneGun MKII. Rather, it is designed for users with a different set of requirements than those using DroneGun MKII.

James Yeager Announces New YouTube Channel

Friday, January 5th, 2018

Last month, James Yeager was kicked off of Youtube. But he accepts that he needs Youtube, stating that it’s the second most powerful search engine on earth after Google.? While he pursues alternatives, he’s set up shop at a new Youtube address.

He claims that in its previous incarnation, you only got him at 75%, which was still more than they could handle. While he will still offer product reviews and tactical tips, he plans to throttle it back to 25% this time.

The plan is to reach the masses via Youtube and say what he really wants to at libertv.com. Eventually, he hopes that his libertv project will include others.

    Magpul Developed a 60-Round Quad Magazine

    Wednesday, April 5th, 2017


    Quad Mag Prototype, 60-Round Capacity 2009

    Shortly after the introduction of the original PMAG, Magpul began working on increased capacity solutions. The “Quad” or “Coffin” mag concept never delivered the reliability in rough handling and adverse conditions that they require from their magazine products, and so the design never made it into production. Lessons learned during this program eventually fed into the D-60 program.

    Things Are Getting Real For The BATFE’s Firearms Technology Branch

    Thursday, April 17th, 2014

    Sometimes, you can get to know a bit about someone by taking a peek at their shopping list.

    The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) was served a lawsuit last week by SIG Sauer. This suit immediately followed ATF’s public chastising from a judge in a similar case brought by Innovative Arms (both cases where muzzle brakes were submitted for testing and classification and deemed “silencers” by the ATF, but no decibel reduction testing was provided to back up their determinations). It might be of interest to other muzzle device manufacturers (and possibly the legal team at SIG Sauer) that ATF themselves this month has admitted that their own sound testing equipment “…has reached end of life and requires an upgrade.” and has issued a sole-source solicitation to purchase a new “computer controlled firearm silencer testing system” from a Virginia-based Bruel & Kjaer representative that custom built ATF’s last system in 2005.

    FedBizOpps SIMS Solicitation

    Recently, ATF’s Firearms Technology Branch claimed that Innovator Enterprises, Inc.’s Stabilizer Brake was a highly-restricted silencer, even though the manufacturer’s intent was to make a freely-sold, unregulated recoil device. The ATF’s determination, however, was shot down with no small amount of candor by the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia when Innovator Enterprises sued the ATF over the mischaracterization. District Judge John Bates’ commentary read that the ATF’s “decision to classify the Stabilizer Brake as a ‘firearm silencer’ is ‘arbitrary and capricious’ for at least two reasons: the agency failed to ‘articulate a satisfactory explanation’ for its decision and the agency failed to ‘examine the relevant data’ before coming to a final conclusion.”

    The Court noted that the ATF did not provide any proof or determination of the Stabilizer brake’s ability to reduce noise, but gave FTB the benefit of the doubt by assuming “Although the FTB (Firearms Technology Branch) utilizes state-of-the-art sound metering equipment, these tests do not affect the classification of any item.” But ATF themselves, in what may wind up being an unfortunately-timed admission from them in any upcoming court cases, gives justification of their purchase by admitting that their sound metering equipment is actually not “state-of-the-art” but rather “has reached end of life.”

    The Court goes even further to question the history of “what exactly Congress was concerned about in deciding to regulate silencers at the federal level”, and points out a study showing that “The 1934 congressional debates [over what became the National Firearms Act] provide no explanation about why silencers were licensed” in the first place.

    The ATF’s National Firearms Act Branch is incredibly overworked and understaffed. It is constantly inundated with tens of thousands of silencer transfers, and is currently dealing with the frustrations of a contractor’s failed e-Forms website (that was supposed to help ease their workload and speed the processing times of these transfers). Add the issue of being repeatedly sued over arbitrary determinations – on what is not even a firearm to begin with, but rather a harmless noise-pollution reduction device – it is certainly a ripe time for Congress to assess if suppressors should be removed from the purview of the NFA entirely.
