NRA Honors Sergeant Michael Parsons as 2018 NRA Law Enforcement Officer of the Year

Wednesday, April 24th, 2019

FAIRFAX, Va. – The National Rifle Association proudly recognizes Sergeant Michael Parsons, of the Tulsa (Oklahoma) Police Department for his courage under fire, unwavering leadership and sound judgement by naming him the 2018 NRA Law Enforcement Officer of the Year.

“I am privileged to join the millions of members of the National Rifle Association in honoring Sergeant Parsons as the NRA’s 2018 Law Enforcement Officer of the Year,” said NRA President Lt. Col. Oliver North. “Sergeant Parsons’ outstanding tactical decisions in the heat of battle, his leadership and bravery in response to a serious threat to his fellow officers and innocent lives are a testament to his valor. Indeed, his heroic actions, in spite of being wounded, epitomize the selfless dedication of our men and women of law enforcement to public safety and to the communities they serve.”

At 1:23 p.m. on the afternoon of July 3, 2018, officers of the Tulsa Police Department’s Gang Unit initiated a traffic stop for an improper license plate display on a van parked at a gas pump at a local convenience store. When the officers approached the vehicle, they noticed that the driver had moved from behind the wheel to the second row of seats in the van. The driver was uncooperative with the officers, refusing to provide identification or to follow commands to exit the vehicle. Gang Unit officers negotiated unsuccessfully for several minutes with the suspect before they requested additional officers, including one with less-lethal munition capabilities.

Shortly after Sergeant Michael Parsons arrived at the scene to answer the request for backup, the suspect was advised he was under arrest for obstruction and the improper tag display on the vehicle. The suspect refused to comply with the officers and was warned of pepper ball deployment of O.C. spray if he did not comply with the orders given. As Sgt. Parsons began to deliver the pepper-balls, the suspect drew a weapon and fired multiple rounds at Sgt. Parsons and the other officers at the scene.

Sgt. Parsons was struck in his right thigh by one of the suspect’s rounds and fell to the ground nearby, while another officer at the scene returned fire, striking the suspect in his chest and neck area. Though he was suffering from a gunshot wound, Sgt. Parsons maintained his composure, continuing to direct officers at the scene and to cover the suspect vehicle with his service pistol. Even while being dragged to safety by fellow officers, Sgt. Parsons maintained coverage on the vehicle as the suspect was still actively moving inside.

Once behind cover, Sgt. Parsons re-assessed his wounds with the assistance of a police medic. With the presence of mind to quickly establish specific roles for different officers, he then began forming an arrest team to apprehend the suspect who still posed a threat to anyone in the area. Sgt. Parsons exercised outstanding judgment, sound tactics and determination in leading the arrest team to take the suspect into custody. Only after the suspect was in custody and no longer a threat to the public did Sgt. Parsons allow himself to be medically treated at the scene and transported to the hospital.

Despite being wounded, Sgt. Parsons continued to show leadership by remaining in command of the incident and ensuring the safety of the other officers and citizens on the scene. As such, it is with great honor and pride the National Rifle Association names Sergeant Michael Parsons as the 2018 NRA Law Enforcement Officer of the Year.

The NRA will present the 2018 NRA Law Enforcement Officer of the Year Award to Sergeant Parsons at the NRA Board of Directors Meeting during the 148th NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits, scheduled for April 25-28, 2019, in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Support for the NRA Law Enforcement Officer of the Year Award is provided by TRU-SPEC. For more information about NRA’s Law Enforcement Officer of the Year Award and the NRA Law Enforcement Division, call (703) 267-1632 or e-mail LE@nrahq.org

SIG SAUER Releases Legendary, American Made, P210 Standard Pistol

Wednesday, April 24th, 2019

NEWINGTON, N.H., (April 23, 2019) –With a history that dates back to 1949, the SIG SAUER P210 was the combat handgun for the Swiss Military, and is regarded as one of the most legendary, reliable, and accurate firearms in the world. Today, SIG SAUER, Inc. is pleased to introduce the American Made P210 Standard pistol to the U.S. Commercial Market featuring modern improvements, at a price-point that will allow more consumers to enjoy this timeless pistol.

“The SIG SAUER P210 Standard is an engineering marvel, and with this launch our product development has really come full circle in bringing our production of all SIG products back to the U.S.  The P210 Standard combines the Swiss and German heritage that made this pistol legendary, with the ingenuity of being American made,” said Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, Commercial Sales.  “The reverse rail on this pistol gives it precise accuracy.  The thin contour grip, and balance in weight gives it less felt recoil, and the tuned, short trigger press truly makes this one of the finest handguns ever made.”

The SIG SAUER P210 Standard is a 9mm hammer-fired pistol, with a precision machined stainless steel slide and frame.  The pistol features iron sights, upgraded ergonomic controls including a relocated manual thumb-safety for easier accessibility, a target grade trigger, custom walnut grips, a side magazine release, and improved beavertail.  The pistol comes standard with two 8-round magazines. 

P210 Standard:
Total length: 8.4”
Barrel length: 5”
Weight (incl. magazine):36.9 oz.
Height: 5.3”
Finish: Nitron
Sight radius: 6.7”

SMRT Sniper Grip Unveiled At 2019 NRA Annual Meeting

Wednesday, April 24th, 2019

Enhanced Tactical Arms is proud to unveil the SMRT Sniper Grip at the 2019 NRA Annual Meeting at the Pride Fowler Industries display (Booth 116). The SMRT Sniper Grip is designed specifically for long range shooters and fits any weapon equipped with an AR15 style grip.  The patented grip includes a groove to improve fingertip indexing when using the Sympathetic Movement Reduction Technique employed by United States Marine Corps Scout Snipers.  Testing by a retired Marine Corps Scout Sniper Instructor showed a 20% increase in hit probabilities at 900 yards when using the SMRT Sniper Grip in conjunction with the SMRT Technique.

The grip is constructed from highly durable material similar to that used in the construction of modern polymer framed pistols and coated with KG Kote for improved durability. Travis Pierce, Enhanced Tactical Arms Military & Law Enforcement Testing, will have a limited number of SMRT Sniper Grips available for purchase on the show floor and will also be taking drop ship orders (shipped in a flat envelope) for customers within the Continental United States who want to avoid transporting products home after the show for no additional cost.

Free shipping will only be available for orders placed at NRAAM!  The SMRT Sniper Grip is available with a molded Macro-Tread and finished in black or FDE KG Kote for $69.99 plus tax and sales fees.  The SMRT Sniper Grip is also available with a composite High Traction Maritime Finish for $99.99 plus tax and sales fees.

Travis will be available at the Pride Fowler Industries booth (Booth 116) to explain the Sympathetic Movement Reduction Technique and give NRAAM participants a chance to see the SMRT Sniper Grip first hand.  Please send any media, sales, or demonstration/sample requests via e-mail to SALES@ETAC-ARMS.COM

THE SYMPATHETIC MOVEMENT REDUCTION TECHNIQUE

The Sympathetic Movement Reduction Technique (SMRT) is used to isolate a shooter’s trigger finger, minimizing unwanted movement (induced by breathing, an inconsistent grip, and/or involuntary muscle movements). United States Marine Corps Scout Snipers typically transition to this technique when engaging targets over 700 yards using a bipod-equipped weapon.  

The shooter will begin by moving the bottom three fingers of their firing hand to the front of the grip within the slotted area and will apply a very light rearward pressure.  This provides an index to improve consistency both with and without gloves.  The shooter then moves their thumb over the trigger finger side of the hand, to minimize thumb contact on the weapon.  The shooter will then lean into the weapon to load the bipod prior to engaging the trigger.

Field test results indicate that the SMRT Sniper Grip (when used in conjunction with the technique previously described) can increase the number of hits on an IPSC target by approximately 20% at 900 yards.

SMRT SNIPER GRIP FEATURES

The SMRT Sniper Grips are manufactured using a chemically stable and heat resistant advanced polymer (similar to the compounds used in modern polymer framed pistols) and finished with KG Gun Kote for increased thermal properties and durability.  Infrared reflective backstrap panels are available for military and law enforcement customers.

The SMRT Sniper Grip is also available with a high traction composite finish designed for maritime operations and gloved use.  The shooter can reduce the degree of traction provided by the composite finish by adding several layers of spray paint over the KG Kote.  Custom colors, finishes, and body designs are available subject to minimum order quantities.  Each grip is hand-finished; therefore, shooters may find slight variations depending on the specific production batch.  Minor wear in the KG Kote coating may be eligible for factory touch-up (for a fee) through Enhanced Tactical Arms, LLC.  

SMRT Sniper Grips have been used by United States Conventional and Special Operations Forces in combat and during real-world Law Enforcement operations.  Enhanced Tactical Arms, LLC offers training for armorers and shooters for shooters upon request.  Please feel free to contact Enhanced Tactical Arms, LLC with questions or orders.
