The 25th of April is ANZAC day for Australia and New Zealand. It is their Memorial Day to remember their falling with a sunrise service, ANZAC biscuits, and beer with brothers and family.  ANZAC day started as a remembrance of the raid on Gallipoli, now it is used as a Remembrance Day for all who have been lost at war. On the 25th April raise a glass to all of our brothers that have helped support us in everything we have done and helped promote freedom in the world. The ANZACs are the only countries that have been with the U.S. in every war we have fought since WW1, to include Vietnam and the Global War on Terror.

ANZAC is the acronym formed from the initial letters of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. This was the formation in which Australian and New Zealand soldiers in Egypt were grouped before the landing on Gallipoli in April 1915.

The acronym was first written as “A & NZ Army Corps.” However, clerks in the corps headquarters soon shortened it to ANZAC as a convenient telegraphic code name for addressing telegram messages.

I can never do justice telling the story of Gallipoli. Like most of WW1 and other wars, a lot of mistakes were made in the planning, but they were followed up by a lot of brave man doing whatever they had to do so their brothers would live another day. I have attached a couple links so you can read for yourselves if you don’t already know the story. I have also attached a link about Z Special unit commonly known as Z force. They were the early pioneers of Special Forces in Austral and New Zealand. They were made up of Aussies, Kiwis, Brits, and the Dutch. They conducted raids on the Japanese, using kayaks, submarines and even parachute insertions. They are the forefathers of today’s Australian SASR and New Zealand’s SAS.

Armageddon Gear – Sticky Gamechanger OG

Thursday, April 18th, 2019

There’s never been a more aptly named firearm accessory than Armageddon Gear’s Gamechanger. Now they’ve made it even better by adding a new sticky fabric to strategic areas of the along the gusset, top, and a single side.

The rest of the design remains the same. You get almost five pounds of pelletized-polymer fill (zippered access to allow removal of fill), configured to offer stability thanks to the split design at the base which remains stabile on almost any irregular surface. It’s just that now, it’s not going to slip once you assume a shooting position.
