The Sterling Promise Foundation

Tuesday, May 17th, 2022

The Sterling Promise Foundation celebrates the life of US Army SOF Veteran Scott Sterling by improving the well-being of US Army Special Operations veterans. Scott served in the 75th Ranger Regiment as well as 1st SFOD-D. After his service, Scott’s commitment to hard work followed him as found a home in industry, working to equip his fellow operators with some of the best equipment on the market.

Unfortunately, Scott was taken from us by cancer caused by exposure during his military service. This non-profit was created to help protect others from suffering a similar fate.

The Sterling Promise Foundation helps veterans and their families by augmenting existing medical and financial benefits, covering the gaps that might exist between expenses and benefits. Our first objective is to ensure that Special Operations veterans are adequately screened for serious medical conditions early in their retirement. Early detection and diagnosis will lead to improved overall health and survivability. This will be accomplished through awareness campaigns and financial assistance.

During this week’s SOFIC event in Tampa the Sterling Promise Foundation will conduct a silent auction of some great items. You’ll be able to participate from home via the web. Look for details soon on how you can bid.


2 Cent Tactical Is Back…Sort of!

Monday, May 16th, 2022

It seems like ages since we talked about selling things through 2 Cent Tactical that help support awesome military charities. We are starting off fairly small with a couple of new options like an actual store. In the store, you can order some of the remaining stock of shemaghs (these are the last of them that we plan to order), and our new pack that includes a pin, magnet, sticker and patch.

The new pack allows you to stick a 2 Cent Tactical Skull Leaf on as many surfaces as you can. Slap that sticker on a water bottle or your truck, put that magnet on your gun locker or your fridge, slap that pin on a coat or bag with no velcro hell you can even use it as a tie tack. Of course, we still have the 2 Cent Tactical logo patch for your velcro areas or even the roof liner in your car.

Not only that but for a limited time we are giving away an extra patch with everything you order. For the time being, we are just testing the website for the remainder of May. When that is over we plan to fully launch in the fall with a bunch of new patch and sticker designs.

So please help us by buying some of our newly minted gear and allowing us to order our stock for the fall and really crush it when it comes to world domination… or I guess raising money for charities.

Thursday, May 12th, 2022

NEWINGTON, N.H., (May 12, 2022) – SIG SAUER is pleased to support Task Force Dagger Special Operations Foundation with an exclusive SIG MCX-SPEAR package for the Task Force Dagger SOF Auction and Raffle occurring in conjunction with the upcoming SOFIC (Special Operations Forces International Conference) show.  Task Force Dagger Special Operations Foundation is a veteran-operated non-profit that aids wounded, ill, or injured US Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) members and their families. This exclusive package includes a SIG MCX-SPEAR Rifle in a 6.5 Creedmoor caliber, a TANGO6T riflescope, and a SIG SLX Suppressor. The auction opened on Monday, May 9th and will close on Tuesday, May 17th at 8:00pm.

“It is an honor for SIG SAUER to support the mission and programs of Task Force Dagger year after year in support of the Special Operations Community. This year with the excitement of our selection as the provider of the U.S. Army’s Next Generation Squad Weapons Program (NGSW) and the SOFIC show we are hopeful that our donation of this MCX-SPEAR package will help to increase the success and reach of the Task Force Dagger Foundation programs within the SOF community,” said Jason St. John, Director, Government Products. “The MCX-SPEAR and the SLX Suppressor are the same platform and suppressor as the NGSW rifle. For this auction, the rifle is offered in the soon-to-be-released 6.5 Creedmoor caliber and paired with the popular TANGO6T riflescope currently in use in various set-ups throughout the military. With the excitement and demand of the MCX-SPEAR in the commercial market we are hopeful that this will inspire the bidding to benefit the organization.”

The SIG MCX-SPEAR rifle is an adaptable multi-caliber rifle featuring rear and side non-reciprocating charging handles, 6-position folding stock, ambidextrous fire control, bolt-catch, and mag release, 2-stage match trigger, 2-position adjustable gas piston, a lightened free-float M-LOK™ handguard, a full-length picatinny rail, and ships with (1) 20-round magazine.  

The SIG SAUER SLX Series of suppressors are designed to drastically reduce toxic fume inhalation by the end-user and sound reduction.  The SLX suppressors feature a monolithic core construction in Inconel, an internal multi-flow path to exhaust gases at a higher rate resulting in lower toxic fume inhalation, a sound-reducing baffle design, a flash reducing end cap, and are available with either the new Clutch-Lock QD mounting system for easy install and removal that offers an intuitive tactile locking ring with infinite radial locking positions or direct thread.

The SIG SAUER Electro-Optics TANGO6T optic is currently in use as the Direct View Optic (DVO), Squad Designated Marksman Rifle (SDMR) and the USSOCOM Squad-Variable Powered Scope (S-VPS).  The SIG SAUER TANGO6T 1-6x24MM riflescope is available in first and second plane, and varying reticles including 5.56/7.62 Horseshoe Dot, HELLFIRE MOA Milling, HELLFIRE FL-6 and the new DWLR6.

The complete details of the SIG SAUER MCX-SPEAR package to benefit the Task Force Dagger SOF Auction are available on the auction website and bidding is open through Tuesday, May 17, 2022 at 8:00pm.
