FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The Mag Life, the official online publication of GunMag Warehouse, is proud to announce that longtime industry insider David Reeder will be taking the helm as Chief Editor on Monday, January 20th ? the same day as Industry Day at the Range kicks off SHOT Show 2020. The timing couldn’t be better.

Daniel Shaw, Director of Marketing for GunMag Warehouse (and HMFIC of both The Gunfighter Cast and Shaw Strategies), says,

“David has been a friend for many years. The quality of his work speaks for itself, and you’d be hard-pressed to find someone in the industry who would not speak highly of his character. As a part-timer over the last few months he has significantly increased our readership. Having him on the team in a full-time capacity is going to help us tremendously to achieve some truly ambitious goals we’ve set for the year, not to mention for the overall future of The Mag Life.”

Reeder is the co-founder of Breach-Bang-Clear and a former Digital Editor at both RECOIL Magazine and Military.com. He is a prolific writer who has contributed to a wide variety of publications, including the Military Times, Guns & Ammo, US News & World Report, SWAT Magazine, Police Link, OFFGRID Magazine, SWAT Magazine, SWAT Digest, Officer.com, the SOLSY Group, and others. A retired USAF/ANG Security Forces SNCO and former (small town) LEO, Reeder spent several years teaching both MOUT and combat tracking, and in his law enforcement role served in a number of capacities including Patrol, Training, SWAT, PIO, a multi-agency drug task force, and OC for the National Homeland Security Training Center  ?  all of which, he will be the first to tell you, sounds far cooler than it really was.

Michael Lambka, President of GMWH, advises,

“David stands out among his peers for many reasons, but what I like most about him is his voice. He brings a certain tone that is rare in our industry. His finished product often contains an element of humor that is coupled with his knowledge and love for what we do. That love and excitement translates well to the readers of The Mag Life.”

New Instructional Video from Panteao with New Instructor Make Ready with Jamey Caldwell: Intro to Night Vision

Friday, December 20th, 2019

Columbia, SC, December 20, 2019 – Panteao announces the release of a new video title with instructor Jamey Caldwell. Jamey recently joined Panteao’s cadre of instructors.  Jamey spent more than 21 years in the United States Army, serving his entire career in Special Operations. He served 7 years with the 75th Ranger Regiment then spent the following 14 years in a Special Missions Unit that maintained a high operational tempo in Bosnia, Iraq, Afghanistan, and numerous other countries in the world. He has deployed to combat 14 times and has conducted well over 500 missions. Jamey has been awarded three medals for valorous actions in combat while under direct fire from the enemy.

“Panteao is very fortunate with being able to work with Jamey Caldwell as one of our new instructors,” said Fernando Coelho, President/CEO of Panteao Productions. Fernando continued, “Jamey will be providing valuable content to our viewers that is backed by years of real-world experience.”

Jamey Caldwell said, “After spending so many years in a Tier 1 unit that was constantly engaged in combat I took for granted how much we used Night Vision, laser’s, thermals, and all the equipment that goes with them. It wasn’t until I retired that I learned how fortunate I was to have this knowledge. I felt it was important to share my experience and knowledge with those that want to learn more. Whether it’s for home protection or a law enforcement officer looking to better equip themselves to protect us on the home front. I am glad to share this information and hope that you learn a little something from it.”

The first video to be introduced with Jamey is Intro to Night Vision. Understanding night vision and the gear associated with it is imperative for successful operations in limited visibility. Educating yourself can be a daunting task, till now. In Intro to Night Vision, Jamey Caldwell presents night vision gear and use in a clear and concise manner. He reviews the history of night vision, light spectrum, the image intensifier tube, figure of merit, white versus green phosphor tubes, head mounted systems, weapon mounted systems, lasers, helmets, IR marking devices, digital night vision systems and more.

Panteao greatly appreciates the support of the sponsors that help make this video happen: Black Rifle Coffee, CORE Survival, Streak Ammo, Oakley, Nitecore, Princeton Tec, Emerging Tactical Solutions, Trijicon, Surefire, and TSE Recon

Make Ready with Jamey Caldwell: Intro to Night Vision is now available streaming for Panteao subscribers. It can be watched online via a PC or Mac, on a smartphone or tablet using the Panteao Make Ready Android and iTunes apps, or on television with the Panteao Make Ready channel on Roku, Amazon Fire TV and Apple TV. For more information on how to stream the Panteao videos, visit: panteao.com/streaming-video-ways-to-watch

The video will also be available shortly on DVD and Digital Download formats. For more information on this title, visit Panteao at: panteao.com/product/caldwell-intro-to-night-vision
