Admin Message Regarding Comments on SSD

Sunday, July 18th, 2021

We are no longer approving new commenters. If you don’t already have an approved account, you won’t be getting one anytime soon.

This is a news website and we publish items we consider newsworthy. Some are press releases, others are written by a handful of others. It is apparently quite difficult for many of you to comprehend that an article on SSD is not an endorsement by our editorial staff. It’s just news folks. Furthermore, articles published on the site are not paid for. Alternatively, we have some great advertisers, who offer fantastic products and services. You should support them.

As far as current comments go; we don’t care if you can’t afford it, shipping is too high, it’s made in the wrong country, the flat bill bill your ass look fat, they donated to the wrong party, said something that hurt your poor little feelings, or the person who owns the company has the wrong skin color to suit you.

The past few weeks have been eye-opening. It’s quite sobering as conservatives to find that those who claim to be on the same side as you promote political violence and a desire to deny civil liberties to others.

We will not provide a platform for those who wish to anonymously further divide our society, cast aspersions on others, or promote hate.

Consequently, we are considering closing the comments section of our posts completely. Until then, keep it civil and pretend the person you are responding to is sitting across the table. And, don’t make accusations about someone else if you aren’t going to share your true name and location with the class.

Run, Walk or March to Help Those Who Fought for Our Freedom

July 4 Virtual 5K supports American Humane’s lifesaving Pups4Patriots™ program

WASHINGTON, D.C. — This Fourth of July, Americans have a new way to celebrate our nation’s freedom.   In addition to the usual frankfurters, fireworks and fun that make up so much Independence Day fanfare, one organization is asking people to lace up their sneakers and run, walk or even march to support those who have served our country and sacrificed so much to keep it free.

American Humane’s national Pups4Patriots 5K is a virtual weekend-long event, raising funds to train lifesaving service dogs for veterans coping with Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). Patriotic participants can show their solidarity with America’s veterans by walking, jogging or running at their leisure over the Fourth of July weekend. Participants can register online at www.AmericanHumane.org/P4P5K.

Research shows that specially trained PTS service dogs can reduce stress and anxiety levels, mitigate depression, ease social reintegration, provide comfort and restore confidence to affected veterans. There are many obstacles standing in the way of veterans in need of service dogs, however, including long waiting lists and exorbitant costs, often upwards of $30,000 per service dog. American Humane’s Pups4Patriots™ program pairs dogs in search of forever homes with veterans in need. The two are trained together at no cost to the veteran.

American Humane is the country’s first national humane organization and a top-rated charity that has been supporting the U.S. military, military families and military animals for more than 100 years. In addition to the nearly one billion animals it saves, shelters, feeds and protects around the world each year, American Humane brings home retired war dogs and reunites them with their handlers, trains lifesaving service dogs for veterans with PTS and TBI and helps provide critical healthcare to our K-9 warriors.

“American Humane is committed to putting healing leashes into the hands of more veterans in need,” said Dr. Robin Ganzert, president and CEO and president of American Humane. “This virtual event will serve as a rallying point to bring us together to provide veterans in need with the healing power of our four-legged friends.”

Participants can register at www.AmericanHumane.org/P4P5K.

New Remington 700 Bolt Opener From Fix It Sticks

Thursday, June 3rd, 2021

Chicago, IL- Fix It Sticks, the industry innovator of modular firearms maintenance tools and torque limiters has introduced an exciting new tool bit, the Remington 700 Bolt Opener.  This new tool allows quick, safe and effortless removal of the firing pin assembly from the bolt of Remington 700s, Remington 700 clones and rifles with this style of bolt shroud and firing pin assembly.  Like all Fix It Sticks tools, the Remington 700 Bolt Opener is extremely compact, making it easy to carry in any Fix It Sticks took kit or range bag.

Using the Remington 700 Bolt Opener is intuitive and easy. With the bolt removed from the rifle, place the back of the Remington 700 bolt through the tool so the polymer insert is contacting the bolt shroud, engage the firing pin with the firing pin catch at the bottom of the tool, then simply retract the firing pin to with a “bottle opening” action.  With the spring pressure now off the bolt body, simply unscrew the firing pin assembly.  Reverse the procedure to reinstall the firing pin.

See how easily and quick the Remington Bolt Opener works!

The new Remington 700 Bolt Opener has a steel tool body for maximum strength with a polymer insert to protect the finish of the bolt shroud.  Like all Fix It Sticks tool bits, it works with all Fixt It Sticks drivers as well as any ¼ hex bit driver and is now available with an MSRP of $20.00.

We Just Celebrated SSD’s 13th Anniversary

Sunday, May 23rd, 2021

Soldier Systems Daily; it all started with a redeye flight from San Diego to Norfolk and a copy of Wired magazine. I had wanted to start writing again and there was this article on the rivalry between tech blogs Gizmodo and Endgadget. I learned that a blog could be about something tangible and decided to use the format. Not long after, SSD was born. It started as a means to keep me off the streets at night, but within a year became a full time job. I’m so grateful to be able to do something I love.

Earlier this week we hit our 13th year of existence, publishing a daily website. Naturally, hard at work publishing daily, we missed the anniversary. So here we are, patting ourselves on the back a few days late.

We’ve been fortunate to outlast most of the competition and the past 14 months of “just 14 days to flatten the curve,” have made it tough. But the truth is, we wouldn’t exist without our loyal readers and fantastic advertisers. Many of them are small business owners, feeling the pinch of these tough times like everyone else. Please support them when you get a chance and keep reading; daily, it’s in the name.
