Pyramyd Air Partners with Digital Wave Corporation to Offer Life Extended SCBA Air Cylinders For PCP Airgunners

June 24th, 2018

Exclusively available on Pyramyd Air, LE Tanks will provide up to 14 years usable life; $200 savings over new carbon fiber fill sources

Cleveland, Ohio (June 11, 2018) Pyramyd Air, the world’s largest internet airgun retailer in conjunction with Digital Wave Corporation, a leading authority of modal acoustic testing, is pleased to announce the release of Life Extended SCBA tanks for use with precharged pneumatic airguns. Using groundbreaking technology, each expired tank is rigorously tested and restored to Department of Transportation (DOT) standards, extending each tank’s usable life, providing years of dependable service, and presenting a low-cost gateway for PCP airgunning.

“This is very exciting news for PCP airgun owners and those who are thinking about getting into precharged pneumatics.” says Val Gamerman, President of Pyramyd Air. “In the last few years, PCPs have come down in price, but the cost of fill sources has remained high. This exclusive partnership means that airgunners can now purchase higher capacity carbon fiber tanks for less than the cost of smaller systems and save up to $200 on some models.”

Using end-of-life tanks collected from fire departments across the country, Digital Wave subjects each tank to a series of demanding tests that include a visual inspection, ultrasonic cleaning, and Modal Acoustic Emission (MAE) tests to reveal any compromise in the cylinder. Once passed, end-of-life cylinders are given a new expiration date and a new life in the hands of PCP airgunners.

Mark E. Anderson of Digital Wave Corporation said of the collaboration, “Being an avid air gun enthusiast myself, I knew that buying a brand-new carbon fiber cylinder was an expensive purchase. Digital Wave is excited to work with Pyramyd Air to give airgunners a new cost-effective carbon fiber pressure vessel alternative via the Air Venturi LE cylinders”.

Life Extended Air Venturi cylinders are currently available on Pyramyd Air in 30 minute (45 cu ft), 45 minute (66 cu ft) and 60 minute (88 cu ft) options that include new DIN 300 valves and fill hoses with female quick disconnect couplings. Assorted sized tanks, with up to 14 years life remaining are available for purchase immediately on PyramydAir.com. Additional resources are available on PyramydAir.com for those looking to learn more about MAE testing and Life Extended tanks.

The Official Dick Tracy Watch On Indiegogo

June 23rd, 2018

Ivory & Horn, a company formed by two brothers, has started an Indiegogo campaign for an officially licensed Dick Tracy Ivory & Horn did produce a Dick Tracy watch back in 2016, however its function was purely as a watch. This 2018 model is not only a watch, but also features a Bluetooth-enabled speakerphone, meaning it functions much like the actual watch from the Dick Tracy comic strip. You can check out the entirety of the details and features via the below image:

Regarding the availability: they’re planning on making only 1000 units available upon successful funding. Given it’s a pretty niche product, that makes sense, but if you want to get one for yourself, you’d best fund now rather than later.

Charles “Keith” David, managing director, Task Force Dagger Foundation said: “We respond to immediate needs that are short fuse and critical in nature. When we receive a request for assistance, we respond within two hours or less to get the needed support into the hands of the service member and his or her family. The needs that are covered are so varied that they are hard to describe and include everything from flights, lodging, rental cars, and other items too numerous to describe. If it is requested by the Command, then is is a verified need and we take action. TracFone deserves recognition for agreeing to step up and help those who have served our nation.”

Under the federal Lifeline program, the SafeLink Wireless service provided by TracFone reaches hundreds of thousands of the more than one million veterans now enrolled in the Lifeline program.

    Chronicle Collectables – Fallout Plasma Rifle Replica

    June 16th, 2018

    Chronicle Collectables has partnered with Bethesda Softworks to offer a series of 1:1 scale replica models based on weapons featured in Fallout 4, one such weapon being this Plasma rifle replica. Created from Bethesda’s 3D game assets, the Plasma Rifle features dimensions of 45″ x 6″ x 13″, and weights approximately 10 lbs. It features LED lights on both slides, with the trigger functioning as the on/off switch.

    Those familiar with Fallout 4 will remember that the weapons in that game are highly-customizable, with a large variety of parts that directly affect how the weapon looks and performs. Unfortunately, this model doesn’t share that modularity, however the product page claims various modulations of the Plasma Rifle will be made available through GameStop specifically, so be on the lookout for those if the base model shown doesn’t do it for you.

    This is a pre-order item, and is expected to ship December of this year.

    Also on offer are a Plasma Pistol, Super Sledge, and Power Fist.

    Maxim Silencer – The Best Christmas Present Ever

    June 13th, 2018

    The Cody Firearms Museum has a collection of digitally-scanned firearms advertisements from years past, including this particular ad from the Maxim Silent Firearms Co. of Hardford, Conneticut, the first commercial producer of firearms suppressors. Intended for .22 caliber firearms, the ad openly claims you can now shoot your .22 in your home “…without causing the slightest disturbance.” Try getting away with something like that these days.

    They also had a Noiseless Bullet Stop sand box for sale, to accompany a brand-new, mail-ordered can.

    The prices listed for the Silencer and Bullet Stop are $5 and $3.50, respecively. That’s roughly $130 and $90 when accounting for inflation, and you didn’t have to pay for a tax stamp or wait for a background check.

    Oh, how times have changed.

    The Evil Dead – A Nightmare Reimagined

    June 9th, 2018

    Joe LoDuca, a prolific composer for film and television, was commissioned to reissue his score for the original ‘The Evil Dead’ film.

    The entire album can be listened to via the player above, including a more subdued version of the track ‘Building The Deathcoaster’ from Army of Darkness.

    Today Is The 74th Anniversary Of D-Day

    June 6th, 2018

    74 years ago today marks D-Day, the Allied invasion of Normandy. General Dwight D. Eisenhower’s address to the Allied Expeditionary Force who committed the operation can be read below:

    Soldiers, Sailors, and Airmen of the Allied Expeditionary Force:

    You are about to embark upon the Great Crusade, toward which we have striven these many months.

    The eyes of the world are upon you. The hopes and prayers of liberty-loving people everywhere march with you.

    In company with our brave Allies and brothers-in-arms on other Fronts you will bring about the destruction of the German war machine, the elimination of Nazi tyranny over oppressed peoples of Europe, and security for ourselves in a free world.

    Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well trained, well equipped, and battle-hardened. He will fight savagely.

    But this is the year 1944. Much has happened since the Nazi triumphs of 1940-41. The United Nations have inflicted upon the Germans great defeats, in open battle, man-to-man. Our air offensive has seriously reduced their strength in the air and their capacity to wage war on the ground. Our Home Fronts have given us an overwhelming superiority in weapons and munitions of war, and placed at our disposal great reserves of trained fighting men. The tide has turned. The free men of the world are marching together to victory.

    I have full confidence in your courage, devotion to duty, and skill in battle. We will accept nothing less than full victory.

    Good Luck! And let us all beseech the blessing of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking.

    – General Dwight D. Eisenhower, Supreme Commander of the Allied Expeditionary Forces

    BOSS StrongBox Raising Funds For Gold Star Teen Adventures

    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).

    Melbourne, FL – Sol Invictus Arms with Tactical Superiority, Inc. is proud to announce the release of the AA-12 shotgun. This venerable, proven shotgun is a new addition to the Sol Invictus Arms product offering. With several improvements, changes to manufacturing processes and enhanced variants catering to the civilian market, this shotgun, once only available to law enforcement and military is now being re-released to the general public.

    Originally designed by Max Atchisson, the design was sold in 1987, and the AA-12 underwent more than 100 changes made by Boje Cornils enabling a fully functional and reliable firearm. Now Boje Cornils is working with Tactical Superiority, Inc. and Sol Invictus Arms, to bring this amazing firearm to the masses. Not only will the production models include new and improved versions of the already known AA-12 in a full auto configuration for military and law enforcement, it will now include a never before seen, 100% legal semi-automatic version for the civilian market. The newly available AA-12 represents significant improvement over past production techniques, including improved design elements, and is now available at a significantly more consumer friendly price point.

    “We’re proud to be a part of the legacy of the infamous AA-12 Shotgun and happy to be able to bring a civilian version to market.” Said Michael Conn, President and CEO of Tactical Superiority, Inc. when asked for comment.

    The first release of the AA-12 will be a pre-sale offering, available on Armslist.com initially and followed on Gunbroker.com a few weeks later as a limited edition called the “Boje Signature” model. Each edition will be limited to 1000 shotguns. Expected delivery will be in December of 2018.

    You can find these limited edition firearms on the respective sites (Armslist.com and Gunbroker.com) for pre-purchase.
