SCOUTbox

December 8th, 2018

There are loads of monthly subscription services out there, and we’ve tried a few. Most have been long ago cancelled, but so far, our favorite has been SCOUTbox. We’ve continued to subscribe for years.

Let’s face it, Scouting is hardly a cheap endeavor but many with young families don’t have gear lying around unless they are Outdoor oriented or this isn’t their first encounter with Scouting. SCOUTbox helps out with those small items like a new headlamp or some biodegradable soap for camp or a snack for the next hike.

For example, here’s the box from September 2017. It’s very demonstrative of what you’ll receive on a monthly basis.

At our house we share SCOUTbox across three boys and dad and each month everyone got something new for our outdoor pursuits. Usually, once we opened the box, everyone knew what he wanted but a couple of times we had to devise contests in order to dole out the prizes.

21st Annual Randy Oler Memorial Operation Toy Drop Wrap Up

December 8th, 2018

The annual Randy Oler Memorial Operation Toy Drop was held last weekend at Fort Bragg. It combines an international parachute operation with an opportunity to give back to the local community.

FORT BRAGG, N.C. — About 260 jump masters from 14 partner nations landed on Fort Bragg’s Drop Zone Sicily, officially commencing the 21st annual Randy Oler Memorial Operation Toy Drop, Wednesday. These jump masters will lead the anticipated 3,000 paratroopers who will jump Friday and Saturday.

The annual Fort Bragg international event, hosted by the U.S. Army Civil Affairs and Psychological Operations Command, has collected more than 100,000 toys for children since then-Staff Sgt. Randy Oler established the combined training event in 1998.

Upon establishment of the first jump with 1,200 participating Soldiers, Oler included toy collection and distribution as a charitable component of the collective training that strengthens bonds among partner nation paratroopers. Toys have remained a voluntary component since that first event, yet the number collected has steadily increased since those first 500 toys. Each year, volunteers distribute the donated toys to participating regional charities.

In 2017, almost 4,000 Soldiers participated in Operation Toy Drop, and about 4,500 toys were donated for children in need throughout the region. Planners anticipate similar participation in 2018, with continued support from U.S. Army Reserve medical, administrative, logistics, transportation, quartermaster, combat camera and others.

Daniel Horner Takes Top Prize in First Match for Team SIG at 2018 SIG SAUER Fort Benning Multi-Gun Challenge

December 7th, 2018

Newington, N.H. (December 3, 2018) – SIG SAUER, Inc. congratulates Team SIG member Daniel Horner for his impressive performance in his first competition representing Team SIG. At the 2018 SIG SAUER Fort Benning Multi-Gun Challenge held November 15th through November 18th at Krilling Range in Fort Benning, Georgia, Horner claimed the titles of “High Overall,” and “Tactical Optics Champion.”

“We are thrilled to see Daniel win his first match as a member of Team SIG, and to do it at Fort Benning where he spent his military career as the captain, and member, of the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit is very fitting,” said Tom Taylor Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, Commercial Sales, SIG SAUER, Inc. “Given that this was the first time Daniel had used his SIG equipment in competition it really demonstrates his impressive skill, and we look forward to watching his career as a professional shooter and member of Team SIG unfold.”

To claim his first match win at the 2018 SIG SAUER Fort Benning Multi-Gun Challenge Horner competed through 12 stages, against 247 competitors, shooting a total of 547 rounds in 553 seconds. The competition required at least three firearms (pistol, rifle, shotgun) to compete and targets throughout the stages ranged from 2 to 250 yards. For long-range competition Horner used his SIG SAUER M400 Competition rife with a SIG SAUER Electro-Optics TANGO6 riflescope, .223 REM SIG Elite Match Competition Ammunition, and a SIG KILO2400ABS Rangefinder. For pistol competition Horner used his P320 XFIVE pistol with iron sights and SIG 9mm Match Elite Competition Ammunition.

“It was very exciting to compete for the first time as a member of Team SIG, and to compete alongside my teammate Lena Miculek was a huge help in stage planning and gear preparation,” added Horner. “In rifle competition the combination of all my SIG equipment really gave me a massive advantage over the competition on any long range or low percentage targets. In pistol competition the handling and accuracy of my P320 XFIVE provided me the edge I needed to win the pistol stage against everyone in the competition including the open pistols that were allowed red dot sights and compensators.”

The SIG SAUER equipment used by Team SIG Pro Shooter Daniel Horner including the SIG SAUER Electro-Optics TANGO6 riflescope, KILO2400ABS Rangefinder, .223REM SIG Elite Match Competition Ammunition, and 9MM SIG Match Elite Competition Ammunition can be purchased online at sigsauer.com/store or retailers everywhere.

Alamo Precision Rifles Release The APR G2 Action

December 7th, 2018

For Immediate Release – Hurst, TX – Alamo Precision Rifles, Leader in affordable high-quality custom precision rifles announces the release of their APR G2 action. Integrating several features previously reserved for high end custom actions, the APR Gen II is an affordable feature rich solution for any custom rifle build.

The APR G2 is released shortly after the successful release of the original APR action as a result of further collaboration between Alamo Precision Rifles and Thompson Leh.

When asked why they are launching another version so soon after the flagship model was introduced, Robert Waggoner, owner Alamo Precision Rifles said the following: “Because the shooting community spoke, and we listened. The original APR action came about as an attempt to create a higher quality, yet cost effective alternative to a trued factory action. It was really intended to fill a specific niche in our hunting build lineup, which it does very well.  However, we immediately began getting requests for a version geared more towards the long range/tactical and DIY market. We were completely on board with the idea, as this category represents a large part of our core business. We combined a list of features and changes that would make it excel in this role and worked closely with Thompson Leh to get them implemented.  We are excited with the results and very pleased that we were able to keep the costs down to a level that makes this version every bit the value that the original APR action represents.”

STANDARD APR ACTION FEATURES:
– Remington 700 Footprint
– Controlled Round Feed
– Mechanical Ejector
