S&S Precision Knows How To Party

Monday, March 4th, 2013

When I opened my front door today at lunchtime a small white box was sitting on my stoop. I opened it up and found this little bit of heaven inside. Looks to me that S&S Precision knows how to party.

Magpul Clarifies Their Position Regarding LEO Sales

Saturday, March 2nd, 2013

Just minutes ago, Magpul CEO Rich Fitzpatrick issued this statement-

REGARDING LEO SALES
March 1st, 2013

Back in 1990, when I was deployed in Desert Shield and Desert Storm as a Marine grunt, some companies prioritized me items for my M16 for shipping that I purchased with my own funds. After getting out and forming Magpul in 1999, I established the same priority policy for Military and Law Enforcement, due to the requirements of their profession.

The same policy has been in place for 13 years now and has never been an issue until a few days ago. I do not support the idea that individual police officers should be punished for the actions of their elected officials. That said, I understand the concerns that some have with Law Enforcement officers getting special treatment while at the same time denouncing second amendment rights to another citizen in the same state.

With the fight in Colorado right now we do not have time to implement a new program, so I have suspended all LE sales to ban states until we can implement a system wherein any Law Enforcement Officer buying for duty use will have to promise to uphold their oath to the US Constitution – specifically the second and fourteenth amendments – as it applies to all citizens.

Magpul to Support Coloradans With PMAGs

Wednesday, February 27th, 2013

Magpul made an interesting announcement via Facebook.

We are proud to announce that within a matter of days we will be going live with a new program. Due to a bill currently moving through the Colorado legislature, there is the possibility that Colorado residents’ ability to purchase standard capacity magazines will soon be infringed. Before that happens, and Magpul is forced to leave the state in order to keep to our principles, we will be doing our best to get standard capacity PMAGs into the hands of any Colorado resident that wants them.

Verified Colorado residents will be able to purchase up to ten (10) standard capacity AR/M4 magazines directly from Magpul, and will be given immediate flat-rate $5 shipping, bypassing our current order queue.

Our customers outside of Colorado, please know that our PMAG production will continue at an ever-increasing rate until we do relocate, shipments to our distributors in other states will continue, and that we do not expect relocation to significantly impact PMAG production. We are also aware that Colorado is not the only state with existing or pending magazine capacity restrictions; we are working on programs for other affected states as well.

Full details and instructions will be announced when we are able to go live; please watch here for the coming announcement.

Anti-2A Legislation Introduced in Oregon

Sunday, February 24th, 2013

We received this note yesterday from a reader in Oregon. These legislators aren’t just going after the Second Amendment. Apparently, they don’t think much of the Fourth Amendment either. His note begins with a synopsis of the elements of the proposed legislation and directs us to visit the Oregon Firearms Federation.

You can have ONE “Assault Weapon” with THREE Magazines ALL THE REST have to be turned in, the one you keep along with the 3 magazines will have to be registered and “stored securely” and only shot at a local Range!!

And of course a warrantless in home inspections to make sure it’s safely locked up! These are just some of the Bill!

Link to the OFFA FB & Website page giving more details, we also of course posted it on our FB last night right after we found out about it

Polish Brand SPECOPS Introduces Mountain Uniform

Friday, February 22nd, 2013

Interestingly, we were just covering military mountaineering and now the Polish brand SPECOPS has introduced a mountain version of their MBS-2 uniform. Dubbed MBS-2M, the initial version is in PenCott Badlands.

20130222-122632.jpg

This new MBS-2M model is designed for wear in mountain regions with the associated inclement weather. The trousers have a padded high waist to keep snow and wind from coming in and accept suspenders to keep them from falling down when layering. There are also Cordura reinforcements on the hem for use with crampons as well as waterproof zippers for simplified donning and doffing.
