Logan Coffey was a friend of mine, just like he was to many of you. I miss him but not as much as the folks at Tactical Tailor, a company he founded on guts and determination. Every year they honor him with a sale. This year they will remember his birthday by offering 35% off all products manufactured by Tactical Tailor 1 – 7 May.

Silent Professional Auction: A Special Operations Forces Charity Event Sets Fundraising Goal of $100,000

Tuesday, April 30th, 2013

Last week I told you to ‘like’ the Silent Professional Auction page on Facebook. Over the past few days they’ve announced the items they’ll be auctioning off in support of SOF charities. The list is as impressive as it is expansive.

Created by Combat Flip Flops, The Macalan Group and Intelligent Waves, the Silent Professional Auction, taking place online May 1-15, 2013, aims to raise $100,000 for the following Special Operations Forces charities:

The Green Beret Foundation
Lead the Way Foundation
The Station Foundation
Team 5
Gold Star Memories
Tommy V Foundation (all proceeds benefit Brett ‘Shady’ Schadle’s family)

The online auction, held at, will be open to bidding from May 1st through the 15th with 100% of the proceeds going directly to the above SOF charities. This is not your ordinary auction – items found here are one-of-a-kind collector’s items, bucket list experiences, rare tactical gear and memorabilia. The following is a partial list of included items:

Viking Tactics Training Course, $10,000 value
UAV Swiper, $20,000 value
Bullet Art Busts, $500 value
LEAF Arc’teryx alpine jacket, $850 value

“Recently, I was reminded that ‘abundance’ is a constant circle of giving and receiving. This country and industry are blessed with abundance because of those that have given so much for us. The Silent Professional Auction is our opportunity as an industry to give back – it’s their turn to receive,” said Matthew Griffin, CEO, Combat Flip Flops.

There will also be an additional fundraising event held at SOFIC (Special Operations Forces Industry Conference) in Tampa on on May 15th at the Mad Monkey from 8pm – 12am. $100 dollars at the door gets you access to the top shelf open bar (sponsored by TMG, CFF and IW) and the ability to win raffle items not included in the online auction. The $100 entry fee is a 501c3 tax deductible dnation with receipt given at the time of entry. This event and the auction are open to the public. For details, please contact Kym Goddu at [email protected].

The need for supporting our SOF soldiers is greater than ever with the increase in mental and physical injuries sustained over the years and their impacts on these soldiers and their families. This auction is a sincere attempt by Combat Flip Flops, The Macalan Group, and Intelligent Waves to recognize the support that people and companies inherently display for SOF families and to provide them an opportunity to donate to worthwhile charities that offer aid.

TacJobs – PROOF Research

Tuesday, April 30th, 2013

I was fortunate enough to learn about PROOF research during SHOT Show 2013. They are a fairly new company located in Northwest Montana that designs and produces innovative barrels and firearms.

PROOF Research combines cutting-edge, patented carbon-fiber barrels, the space-age laminations of Lone Wolf Riflestocks, and the rifle making genius of Jense Precision under one roof. This combination provides unsurpassed accuracy and durability from rifles weighing a fraction of traditional firearms.

The mission of the research and manufacturing facility is to prove what transpires with thermal management and heat dissipation, barrel stiffness and mass reduction, as well as giving us the ability to test and create new ammunition.

They are currently seeking several new team members including Director of Sales, Marketing Manager, Marketing Coordinator and Engineering Manager as well as numerous productions and quality assurance positions.
