The Activity – A Graphic Novel

Thursday, May 31st, 2012

The evolution of global conflict necessitates the development of special operations to rise and meet the call. Such is the center of THE ACTIVITY, a monthly comic book series from premier publisher Image Comics (who brought us THE WALKING DEAD). Written by Nathan Edmondson and illustrated by Mitch Gerads, the story follows a Direct Action Special Operations team through a series of adventures. The first collected volume is in stores June 6.

I’ve read every issue so it was great to be introduced to Nathan Edmondson by a mutual friend. He has been learning about the gear and how it works in order to improve the authenticity of the work. While it is fiction after all, look for some very cool stuff popping up later this year.

“The Activity: Volume 1” is available through Amazon or our local comic book dealer.

NRAstore introduces NRA Vertx Phantom LT Pants

Thursday, May 31st, 2012

The NRAstore and Vertx have announced the availability of NRA Phantom LT pants through the NRAstore catalog and starting in June 2012.

Phantom LTs are lightweight, discreet and extremely durable tactical pants that will hold and protect your equipment. Featuring a total of nine pockets – including a knife clip notch – the pant shows only two pockets from the outside for a covert appearance.

“The functionally advanced Vertx Phantom LT pants are unlike any others in the tactical arena,” said Dirk Grove, NRAstore Sales Manager. “Boasting absolutely no Velcro, they’re the quietest pants around. A gusseted crotch and subtly articulated knees provide range of motion no other pants can match.”

Exclusive Intelli-Dry technology provides liquid repellency and stain resistance on the outside plus moisture wicking on the inside for added comfort.

“That’s a first for a tactical pant,” said Bob Getto, CEO of Fechheimer and the Vertx brand. “The brand promise of Vertx is original and authentic, and that describes the NRA Phantom LTs.”
