Mystery Ranch Announces the Backbone Series

Wednesday, November 18th, 2020

A campaign to educate the public on the realities of a career in Wildland Fire
Bozeman, Mont. (November 18, 2020) –MYSTERY RANCH, the industry-leading pack company built on a heritage of comfortable load carriage, function, and durability for people who have a mission to accomplish, announces the launch of an educational and fundraising campaign to inform the public on the sacrifice and work that goes into responding to the wildland fire environment. The Backbone Series is a multi-pronged campaign that aims to build awareness around what is takes to protect public lands, lives, and private property and to provide scholarships to support and assist in the education of seasonal Forestry Technicians who want to further their careers in or outside of fire.

MYSTERY RANCH created the Backbone Series and Scholarship to help the men and women that go above and beyond in the off-season. Fire Classes, medical training, and college education aren’t cheap. Countless men and women who work for Federal Land Management Agencies seek to better themselves in the off-season to compete for permanent appointments in fire management, whereas some individuals use fire as a means to an end in the pursuit of greater life goals and objectives.

Funding for the scholarships will be supported through the sale of two limited edition lifestyle packs, URBAN ASSAULT 21 and the 3-WAY BRIEFCASE, which will become available online in early 2021. Built in the “wildfire black” colorway with the same zippers, 500D CORDURA® fabric, and detailed pops of orange like our fire packs, 10% of proceeds from these unique packs will fund the scholarship and winning contributors will receive a $1,000 scholarship. Contributors will receive much needed scholarships to support their education and life after firefighting. Winners will be selected anonymously throughout the duration of the campaign.

To qualify for the MYSTERY RANCH Backbone Scholarship, you must be a US or Canadian Wildland Fire employee, retiree, or spouse of a current or retired Wildland Fire employee and a profile contributor for the Backbone Series.

Propper Hosts Free Defensive Training Session for Local Law Enforcement

Monday, November 16th, 2020

St. Charles, MO — Missouri-based Propper International recently hosted a full-day training event at the Granite City Police Department’s private gun range on October 29th. Members from police departments across the Greater St. Louis area attended with military police and other federal agencies represented as well.

Throughout the day, they received instruction from renowned tactical trainer Rick Hogg. Hogg is a 29-year US Army Special Operation Combat Veteran with 13 combat deployments between Iraq and Afghanistan. Since returning from overseas, Hogg provides comprehensive firearms training to military and law enforcement through his proven training methodology service company War HOGG Tactical, Inc.

“What I’ve noticed working with several departments across the country is that the onus for sharpening defensive skills lies with the officers themselves,” said Hogg. “I applaud Propper for showing the initiative to give these guys an opportunity to develop their abilities in a group setting and push each other to be better.”

During the morning session, the focus was on increasing efficiency when drawing from a holster and changing magazines, both with dry fire and live rounds. The afternoon session included exercises intended to simulate shooting under duress and also covered first responder medical skills such as how to stop a bleeding wound and apply a tourniquet. Each officer was provided with Propper gear to wear during the training and got to take home a Propper Bail Out Bag after the session concluded.

“Organizing this training exercise seemed like the bare minimum we could do to express our appreciation to these brave individuals who’ve put their lives on the line to keep our community safe,” said Craig Madden, Senior VP of Marketing & eCommerce for Propper.
