MDM – Name This “Accessible Under Armor Trauma Kit” Contest from Phokus Research Group

Wednesday, September 28th, 2016

Phokus Research Group developed this Dual Zipper Under Armor Deployment version of the Sons Traima Kit for those units who need to be able to access the components of their medical items. In addition to the ability to maintain the kits when items expire, the dual zipper also allows units to update their components with new items. It still fits in the late pocket of the Armor Vest so they’ve also introduced a split seam so the items stay in place.

It’s a great product, but the name is a mouthful and more of a nomenclature than a cool name. I suggested Phokus allow the SSD readers to name it. So here’s your shot to be a marketing genius. Phokus will reward the best name, judged by them, two fully loaded versions of this kit as well as two Shield kits.

To enter, follow these rules:
1. In the comments section of THIS, and only THIS, article on SSD, share your proposed name. Only entries here are eligible to win. Of more than ine person submits a name, the first use gets credit for it.

2. Comments are open from now until 1600 Zulu on 30 September 2016 (that’s this Friday at High Noon Eastern Daylight Time).

3. Use any alias you want to post but be sure to use a valid email address since that’s how we’ll contact the winner.

4. Phokus Research Group will select the name from the comments we receive.

5. One entry per email address. We will delete entries that violate this policy.

6. Must be 18 to enter. Void where prohibited.

About the PT Dueling Tree

Train for speed and accuracy under pressure or just have fun competing against friends with the innovative PT Dueling Tree – the target made for two.

The PT Dueling Tree has six reactive paddles for interactive training and competitive fun. Designed to swing from one side to the other when hit, the paddles challenge shooters’ target location and speed under the pressure of head-to-head competition. Because it’s made of 3/8” AR500 armor steel, the standard PT Dueling Tree is designed for handgun ammunition up to .44 Magnum and .45 ACP. Whether it’s intensive training you’re looking for or just a way to have fun on the weekends, the PT Dueling Tree has exactly what you need.

The PT Dueling Tree consists of a forward leaning center stand which allows gravity to do the work as the six reactive armor steel paddles swing from one side to the other when shot. Because the target is gravity reset and doesn’t rely on springs or mechanisms, the PT Dueling Tree gives you reliable results every time. A deceptively simple design also makes it easy to assemble and disassemble. Each target paddle slides into two rings on the back of the stand that hold it securely in place but still allow for unrestricted movement and easy assembly and disassembly.

Height: 5’
Weight: 110 lbs.
Paddles: 6” diameter
Steel Grade: 3/8” AR500
Handgun Shooting Distance: 10 yards+ (This target is not rated for use with rifle ammunition) *
