SilencerCo – Harvested: Borderlands

Thursday, August 11th, 2016

SilencerCo recently hunted aoudads with UFC Featherweight Fighter Chad Mendes, utilizing suppressed rifles and the assistance of expert guides. The full release can be read below:




past tense: harvested; past participle: harvested

to catch or hunt (animals) for consumption and use

Hunting. It’s a tradition. It’s a challenge. It’s a way to provide. We don’t just understand this–we live it. Hunting is a part of our lives just as much as it is a part of yours.

During World War II, American soldiers stationed off the Barbary Coast of Northern Africa discovered a native sheep species, known as the aoudad. Recognizing their potential as a game animal, they shipped them to Texas; Aoudads quickly proved to be an extremely challenging hunt for multiple reasons. Their keen sense of smell, hearing, and alertness to danger, combined with their capability to retain water from sparse vegetation and survive long periods of time without it, gives them the ability to live in rugged, dry habitats that are often too harsh for other animals.

We had the rare opportunity to scout the high desert terrain with UFC® Featherweight Fighter Chad Mendes in search of this elusive creature. Equipped with silenced rifles and accompanied by expert guides, we set off to reconnect with the wilderness and harvest some challenging game.

About Chad Mendes

Chad began wrestling at the age of five and continued the sport throughout high school and college until his competitive success led him to move to Sacramento and train with Team Alpha Male. Before turning pro, however, Mendes took home an impressive list of ranks and titles, including two-time PAC-10 Champ, two-time D-I NCAA All-American, and a second-degree black belt in wrestling. Now, after less than three years of professional fighting, Mendes has also earned seven wins by way of knockout, two wins by submission, a record of 4-0 in WEC with wins over Javier Vazquez, Cub Swanson, Anthony Morrison, and Erik Koch, and he has won six of his last nine fights. Mendes most recently founded Finz and Featherz, a hunting and guide service.

SSD Saturday Night At The Movies Presents ‘The Pentagon Wars’

Sunday, August 7th, 2016

I spent the week with industry at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market. Many attended a rather disappointing government briefing on an Arctic Clothing System requirement. It made me think about the myriad other programmatic issues that pop up and I knew the perfect film for Saturday Night at the Movies, HBO’s ‘The Pentagon Wars’.

Starring Kelsey Grammer and Cary Elwes, ‘The Pentagon Wars’ is based on the book of the same name by Col James G. Burton (USAF, Ret) and showcases the development of the Bradley Fighting Vehicle.

Ironically, we actually watched portions of this movie when I attended Air Force Operational Test Command’s Test Officer Course and yet, similar issues continue to crop up across the acquisition enterprise. 

Regardless, remember, it’s a movie, not a documentary, and enjoy.
