Traditional Ammunition Gets ProtectionUnder Newly-Signed Law Backed by NSSF

11-30-2015
NSSF HAILS ENACTMENT OF PRIORITY LEGISLATION . . . Late on last Wednesday afternoon, the day before Thanksgiving, President Obama signed into law the National Defense Authorization Act of 2015. In an important accomplishment for America's hunters and target shooters, that legislation included a provision precluding the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) from asserting Toxic Substance Control Act (TSCA) authority over ammunition and its component parts. 

Government Relations Update - October 23, 2015

10-23-2015
U.S. Rep. Brian Babin (R-Texas) today introduced the NSSF-supported Alternative Ammunition Manufacturing Act (H.R. 3802) to help ensure ammunition manufactures gain the certainty needed to produce alternative types of ammo. The measure requires the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) to issue a ruling within 60 days of receiving a waiver application, or else the application will be automatically granted.

Government Relations Update - August 28, 2015

08-28-2015
The National Shooting Sports Foundation this week joined forces with the National Rifle Association, the Second Amendment Foundation, Seattle-based retailers and gun owners in filing a lawsuit in King County Superior Court challenging the City of Seattle's recently approved sales tax of $25 on each firearm sold and five cents for each round of ammunition (two cents for .22 caliber). NSSF and other pro-gun groups fought the city ordinance, labeled a "gun violence tax," but the City Council nevertheless approved the measure on Aug. 10 and Mayor Ed Murray signed it last week.

HAIX Mission Boot

Haix is already a big dog in Europe, but is just now getting around to trying to get more into the North American market. As a part of that I got the chance to check out their Mission boots in Desert Tan, the main series in their military line. The pricepoint likely has been one thing to slow the penetration to us cheapos here in the US, but Haix is a great example of no compromises and getting what you pay for.

Simple large capacity modular pouches are still a bit on the rare side these days so it was refreshing to see a whole line from Dunamis Gear. Although a small company, one can tell a lot of care goes into these pouches with attention to detail and use of quality materials. They take the end result quality very seriously by guaranteeing Duramis Gear products for life.

Starting with the Front Zip style pouches, they are log like in shape with a 2 slider zipper going down the front side, kind of like having a duffel bag as a pouch. 

Surefire EB1 Backup with Thyrm Switchback

I've been rocking my old SureFire E1B backup light as a part of my EDC (every day carry) loadout for quite some time, but while wanting to try out using the Thyrm Switchback with it I was sad to see this model was not supported. Since Surefire doesn't make the E1B anymore this made sense design wise on the Switchback and ended up as a good excuse to try out the EB1. (Yes the names are a bit confusingly similar)

Safariland ALS holsters

This is a review I should have done a while ago as I've been using ALS (Automatic Locking System) holsters for a while now. Safariland didn't actually send me anything so I didn't have the usual feeling of obligation to get something up in a timely manner, however I tend to always think better late than never. In summary when it comes to a full on combat / duty style holster, I think the ALS series is the best thing out there.

ITS Tactical ETA Trauma Kit Pouch Fatboy

There are a lot of medical pouches out there these days so always good to see some unique designs like this one. ITS Tactical has been around as a tactical resource site for a while now, and like us started to apply that knowledge to gear designs of their own. Collaborating with Zulu Nylon Gear, their kit is made in the USA and at the mil-spec standards expected of hard use tactical gear.

Phokus Research Group - Sons Trauma Kit

Phokus Research Group has been up to some crafty products for a while, one being their Sons Trauma Kit which offers an interesting alternative to traditional medical blow out kits. Rather than being a kit with a fancy pouch, the kit is shaped flat and slim sitting behind one's armor plate to make a great use of tactical space savings.
