Brad’s Story

Wednesday, April 26th, 2017

When you see the name B. E. Meyers and Co, that ‘B’ stands for Brad. Unfortunately, he recently passed away. This is a tribute by B. E. Meyers & Co, to their founder.

As many of you know, my father, Brad Meyers, the founder of B.E. Meyers & Co. Inc. passed away a bit over a month ago after an amazing life. We thank everyone for the tremendously kind thoughts and notes regarding his passing, and we were so happy that at the celebration of his life over 300 folks whose lives were impact by Brad joined us at his memorial. We miss him dearly.

We worked to bring together a small video of his life for the memorial, capturing his story and his vision, which we would like to share with all of you. Bringing this video together was a labor of love, and in the process of going through his old videos and photos, we found an audio interview that had been done with Brad by my sister, Rebecca, for a college project in 2010. We thought, “Who better to narrate the story of Brad’s life than the man himself?”.

On behalf of the Meyers Family and everyone at B.E. Meyers & Co. Inc., we hope that those that watch this will all take some inspiration from Brad’s infectious enthusiasm for life, his company, and helping the end user. He was always thinking about what could be, the quest for what’s next, what hasn’t been done, or what could be done differently. B.E. Meyers is a small company that fights the big fight. Our motto is – “Build it right, Save a life”. That’s us. That is our core belief. We are in this business to help good guys put down bad guys wherever they be, and we all take pride in that mission.

As you will see from Brad’s story, “crazy” ideas can lead you down a path you didn’t know existed. He would encourage us all to never be afraid to pursue what we believe in, never stop learning, never stop being curious, and never let anyone deter your dreams. Those were his Optics of Optimism.

Join The MAWL Man Militia

Friday, March 10th, 2017

For Christmas last year, BE Myers & Co., Inc sent out custom brick figures configured as MAWL Man to commemorate the launch of their weapon laser. Armed with a MAWL-DA on top of a suppressed MK18, MAWL Man also sports a pistol, knife, plate carrier and full loadout.

These proved so popular in social media that they decided to offer them for sale in order to raise funds for their favorite charity, SOC-F.

Get your MAWL Man from Weapon Outfitters and share photos of him in action by joining the MAWL Man Militia on Facebook.

BE Meyers & Co Inc Unveils Commercial MAWL-C1+ Laser Aiming Device

Tuesday, March 7th, 2017

Even when the MAWL From BE Meyers was just a rumor, folks were asking for a commercial model. I know, I was one of them. They had planned for one all along, but wanted to get the initial DA models out to their mission customers. Just now, they announced the availability of a commercial model, available for open purchase.

This thing is no less than amazing! I had checked out a prototype in a static, lab environment before they were released, but I finally had the chance to put one to work while recently hunting hogs in Texas. The controls are intuitive and right where you need them. What’s more, the beam reaches out, way out, and remains focused and clear. I was able to indicate items of interest for my fellow hunters as well as illuminate areas with IR light where we couldn’t clearly see. It definitely enhanced the experience, making me and my fellow hunters not only more effective, but safer.

Below is their full press release.

The Commercial Market Spoke, and We Listened
Since the release of the MAWL-DA™ laser device to the military and law enforcement community in 2016, B.E. Meyers & Co. Inc. has received numerous requests for a civilian legal variant of the MAWL™. Today we are proud to be able to support these requests by introducing the MAWL-C1+™ commercial laser device. The C1+ variant is not the typical “Class 1” laser device, and this is the first time that a laser illuminator is available to the shooting community that is not only functional for night target engagement at distance, and exceeds the performance of other commercial systems.

MAWL™ Design
The MAWL-C1+ has all the sought-after ergonomic design features of the MAWL-DA, allowing for quick operation in the dark and on the move. In under a second, using only the tip of your thumb, the laser can be manipulated from near to far and back again between short range, mid-range, and long range specific settings. With low-profile activation buttons centered at just 0.37” above the rail, the MAWL design offers an unparalleled combination of range adjustment and speed of use.

Class 1 Plus™ = Irradiance on Target
The power balance of infrared illumination and pointing irradiance at different ranges becomes critical as commercial night vision quality continually increases, which is why MAWL-C1+ brings settings specific for close range to long range target engagement. By utilizing a uniquely arrayed laser core, the MAWL-C1+ is able to incorporate a laser illuminator capable of outperforming other civilian legal laser systems on the market, and also outperforms many restricted devices. This provides the user with a distinctive and functional near infrared illuminator with unrivaled irradiance on target, allowing for positive identification of objects, the ability to surpass many photonic barriers, as well as faster target acquisition either on the range or in the field. On top of this, the visible green laser pointer in the MAWL-C1+ has selectable low-power settings for close range boresight precision that is also slaved to the near infrared pointers. Once the user has zeroed the visible green laser, the infrared lasers are also automatically zeroed, getting you into the field faster at night. By featuring centralized, co-aligned emitters, the MAWL ensures that all beams are simultaneously on target, regardless of distance.

Class 1 Plus™ = Beam Clarity
Our beam is our brand, and the incredibly smooth illumination quality of the MAWL-C1+ is the same as in the standard MAWL-DA, eliminating the distracting artifacts (a.k.a. greasy fingerprint spots) that many civilian and restricted laser devices possess. Not only does this clean energy performance improve your illumination of the target area, it makes low Figure-of-Merit (FOM) night vision devices look better by providing increased ambient and directional near infrared illumination.

Use What You Already Own
The MAWL is designed to be the best laser on the market, and works with and compliments a variety of other high-end systems. The MAWL-C1+ is designed to work with all MIL-STD/NSWC Crane Laser Lead remotes, which include the Unity Tactical/TNVC TAPS™ and TAPS Pro™ series remote cables, the SureFire SR07-D-IT, as well as L3 and Steiner remote activation cables. In addition to this, the MAWL series are designed to work in parallel with the SureFire M300 Mini-Scout Light® to maximize rail space efficiency.

Available Now
Limited production runs of the B.E. Meyers & Co. Inc. MAWL-C1+ are available now through select commercial distribution channels. For more information, pricing, and a list of resellers, please visit www.bemeyers-mawl.us.

BE Meyers & Co, Inc Issues Statement In Support Of Chuck Pressburg

Thursday, February 16th, 2017

Recently, a news release came to light identifying one of our contracted employees and brand ambassador, Mr. Charles “Chuck” Pressburg of Presscheck Consulting, in an unfortunate firearms incident. The media coverage of this incident is vague and allows for misperception. In addition to this limited reporting by the press, malicious speculation online is fueling and in some way exacerbating many inaccuracies in the story.

This incident is by no means indicative of the performance or standards that we know Chuck to uphold, and in no way impacts his credentials as a Subject Matter Expert on the topic of low-light operations as well as night vision and laser combat employment. He represents our brand, and we support him as strongly today as we ever have.

While this was an obviously unfortunate incident involving our brand ambassador, the details of the situation will come out at a time and in a method that are legally appropriate. While it would not be appropriate for our brand ambassador to make a statement himself at this time, B.E. Meyers & Co. Inc. and industry entities cited in this message stand in his support to speak for him.

I encourage the community to take a pause, know that all the details cannot be currently released, and to question the narrative provided to them by the Oregon media that has spread to the national press level. Stop breaking out the Jump-to-Conclusions Mat, stop trying to fill in the blanks erroneously, and start letting the facts develop. Let the legal system work, and come to your own conclusions in due time.

I personally stand with Chuck.
B.E. Meyers & Co. Inc. stands with Chuck.
Those of character in this industry stand with Chuck.

We are ALL, all in for Chuck.

#ALLINFORCHUCK

Sincerely,

Matthew Meyers

Seattle Police SWAT and King County (WA) Sheriff’s Office SWAT Adopt the B.E. Meyers & Co., Inc. MAWL Laser Aiming System

Thursday, November 24th, 2016

November 21st, 2016 (Redmond, WA) – B.E. Meyers & Co., Inc. Advanced Photonics, which specializes in laser systems for national defense, law enforcement, and aerospace is proud to announce that their Modular Advanced Weapon Laser (MAWL™) has been adopted as the new standard by both the Seattle Police Department Special Weapons and Tactics Team (SWAT), as well as the King County (WA) Sheriff’s Office Special Operations team.

These two teams provide tactical response services for over 2 million citizens in the greater Seattle area. Both SPD SWAT and KCSO SWAT explored multiple laser aiming systems before choosing the MAWL™ for their weapon pointing and illumination requirements in June 2016. The MAWL™ enables their SWAT officers to safely and effectively conduct high-risk tasks in complex low-light environments.

Officer Kirk Waldorf, Seattle Police SWAT Team R&D Lead said, “When my team decided to improve our night vision capabilities, we evaluated four of the best aiming devices available. The MAWL™ was without equal, and no other device offered the capabilities and functions of the B.E. Meyers & Co., Inc. system. In the end, we decided not to compromise on quality or performance and chose the MAWL™ for the entire team.” Deputy Tony Mullinax, KCSO Special Operations said, “The MAWL™ has dramatically increased our ability to safely operate at night, allowing us to make better decisions about if and when to use force.”

As the first US law enforcement departments to adopt the MAWL™ using the FDA law enforcement variance for this system, the teams were trained on the advantages of the MAWL™ system by Presscheck Consulting and Tap-Rack Tactical, both of which provide specialized training in operating under night vision in tactical situations.

Matt Meyers, President of B.E. Meyers & Co., Inc. said, “We’re excited that the first teams to adopt the MAWL™ are local law enforcement organizations that B.E. Meyers & Co., Inc. has had relationships with since our founding in 1974. Both Seattle PD and King County Sheriff’s Office SWAT are highly regarded professionals who display proficiency in tactical operations, and we are honored that they chose us to meet their equipment needs.”
