NRA National Police Shooting Championships Return To Albuquerque Sept 24-26

Friday, August 31st, 2018

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – The 2018 NRA National Police Shooting Championships are scheduled for Sept. 24-26, 2018, in Albuquerque, New Mexico, uniting law enforcement professionals from across the world to test their marksmanship skills in an exciting, challenging competition.

A shooting tradition since 1962, the NPSC is open to all public and private law enforcement professionals and select law enforcement members of the U.S. Armed Forces. Participation in the event does not require an invitation, and registrants can shoot in as few or many matches as they wish.

Competitors need not be High Master shooters to attend or excel at the NPSC. In fact, High Masters and Masters make up the smallest group of shooters who attend the championships. Like all NRA Police Pistol Combat (PPC) tournaments, participants compete against shooters in their own skill classification level. Those who have not participated in an NRA PPC tournament or hold no PPC classification may compete as an Unclassified Shooter.

The NPSC will once again feature the New Mexico Challenge on Saturday, Sept. 22, a free event open to officers who work for New Mexico law enforcement agencies and have not fired in a PPC Match before, as well as for alumni shooters from past New Mexico Challenge events. This event exposes new shooters to the NRA PPC Program and gives them a chance to run through the Stock Service Match in a relaxed atmosphere while receiving shooting tips from experienced shooters.

“We believe that a law enforcement officer cannot receive enough firearms training, and firearms competition is a direct extension of training,” said Glen Hoyer, Director of NRA’s Law Enforcement Division. “We welcome law enforcement professionals from across the country and around the world to join us in Albuquerque for a challenging, enriching and fun championship tradition.”

In addition to the shooting matches, tuition-free armorer courses, including courses from Glock, SIG Sauer, Walther, Double Star and Smith & Wesson, are scheduled on Saturday, Sept. 22. The courses will be available on a first-come, first-served basis and pre-registration is required.  The 2018 Law Enforcement Equipment Expo will also take place during the NPSC, allowing law enforcement professionals to meet local and national firearm and equipment manufacturers and explore new products.

Support for the NRA Law Enforcement Division and the 2018 NRA National Police Shooting Championships is graciously provided by Ruger, Mossberg, Kahr Firearms Group, Rocky Brands, Odor Crusher, Otis Technology, and TRU-SPEC. Additional support for this year’s championships is provided by Nine Line Apparel and Present Arms.

WILDCraft Entertainment Launches A New Hunting Video Series: WILDCraft

Friday, August 31st, 2018

Columbia, SC, August 27, 2018 – WILDCraft Entertainment announces the development of a new video series called WILDCraft that will take the viewer along for a journey of a lifetime with a group of hunters where the hunt is only a part of the story. Each season introduces a new location and journey and will debut in September 2019 on Amazon Prime Video – which is available to over 100 million customers in more than 200 countries and territories around the globe.

Season one is called WILDCraft: South Africa. It takes you to Fort Richmond Safaris in the rugged mountains of South Africa’s Northern Cape, where editors and contributors from a variety of hunting magazines join gunwriter Richard Mann on a safari for free range kudu and other species. The team will hunt from a remote tent camp, and each hunter will have their own challenges to face during the adventure. At the end of each day they’ll share their experiences, successes, and failures around the campfire. They’ll also learn about the local people, the history of Fort Richmond, hunting’s positive impact on the area, and attractions like the Big Hole diamond mine in nearby Kimberley, South Africa.

WILDCraft Entertainment has created sponsorship packages that go beyond traditional product placement. Along with the series airing on Amazon Prime, sponsors will receive social media marketing videos, and the opportunity to participate in the Guest Hunter Sweepstakes and Email List. Sponsor products will also be placed in the hands and field-tested by the top hunting editors in the industry. SIG Sauer has signed on as Season One title sponsor.

Companies interested in participating in Season One, should contact WILDCraft direct at [email protected]

Unity Tactical FUSION Friday

Friday, August 31st, 2018

FUSION, by Unity Tactical, is a system of modular, multi-purpose components that provide end users unparalleled flexibility in mounting accessories to weapon platforms.  It offers complete control in attachment of lights, lasers, sights, and other equipment to achieve complete integration, optimal placement, lightest weight, and most economy of space.

FUSION Config 10A BreakOut

This FUSION configuration features the MLOK Compatible Adapter.  It is designed to place Surefire Scout and Streamlight Rail Mount lights (as well as FUSION accessories) as close to the rail as possible.  Rail estate is always at a premium, but we also want to make sure our gear is as low profile as possible.  The FUSION MLOK Compatible Adapter will give you the lowest profile stance and is particularly handy for PDW style weapons.  In order to achieve this super low profile, you must have access to the backside of the rail on the host firearm.  This is easily achieved by removing the rail, installing the accessory, and reinstalling the rail.

FUSION Config 10B BreakOut

FUSION components are machined from 6061-T6 aluminum and MILSPEC Type 3 anodized.  Designed and made in the US from US materials and good ole’ fashioned American innovation.  FUSION is the original and best modular accessory mounting system.  Make your gear work for you, not the other way around.

FUSION components are available from Unity Tactical and authorized dealers to build your perfect setup.

Friday, August 31st, 2018

ZEV Gen5 PRO Magwell_1

Known for its high quality, precision crafted Glock upgrade components, ZEV Technologies has once again added to its growing catalog of Gen5 offerings with the introduction of the PRO Magwell designed for the compact G19 Gen5 model. The PRO Magwell, a slimmed down version of its big brother the PRO Plus Magwell, is suitable for concealed carry with little to no added imprinting. The slightly flared base is wider than the stock opening, which is ideal for quickly inserting the magazine in the pistol during reloads, helping build proper muscle memory for improved consistency and reload time.

ZEV Gen5 PRO Magwell_3

The ZEV Technologies PRO Magwell is a great addition for any shooter looking for an edge without the bulk flared competition style magwell. The one-piece design facilitates easy installation and utilizes a single attachment screw to securely mount to the Glock frame while retaining a low profile.

ZEV Gen5 PRO Magwell_6

  • Designed and tested for compatibility with standard capacity factory magazines
  • One piece 6061 aluminum design
  • Type III anodized finish
  • Kit includes magwell body, mounting screw, and wrench
  • NOTE: Back straps may need to be modified if used.
