Radian Weapons Releases Limited Edition OD Green Raptor Charging Handles and Talon Safety Selectors, 50% of Sales to be Donated to the Special Operations Care Fund

Friday, November 11th, 2016

Dear Friends,

Today, November 11, is Veterans Day – a holiday that honors every man and woman who has answered the call to service in the American Armed Forces. We ask you to take a moment to pause and reflect on the sacrifices made by those warriors and their families. Our security and prosperity as a nation depends upon those who serve, and as Americans we have a responsibility to not only express our gratitude, but to take meaningful action to ensure their needs are met even after the uniform comes off.

In honor of Veterans Day, Radian Weapons is releasing limited edition OD Green Raptor Charging Handles and Talon Safety Selectors, from which 50% of sales will be donated to the Special Operations Care Fund (SOC-F). 100% of the money raised will be used to address the needs of wounded and fallen special operations warriors and their families. This is the first initiative Radian has undertaken to support our warfighters, but certainly not the last.

To our veterans, today we say thank you.

Charity Auction for Special Operations Care – Fund of 2017 Arc’teryx LEAF Drypack 25

Thursday, June 9th, 2016

Arc’teryx is notorious for being tight lipped about new products until their traditional launch at SHOT Show each year. However, this one time they are making an exception in order to help the Special Operations Care – Fund raise money. Those two organizations have asked us to help them out by hosting this auction of a 2017 25l Waterpoof Pack called the Drypack 25, in MultiCam. These won’t even be announced until late January 2017, so you’re not only getting a rare sneak peek but also a chance to own one. While earlier Drypack models were very mission specific, this one is great for a variety of uses, including many recreational pursuits.

This is the one everyone has been waiting for. The Drypack 25 incorporates an oral inflation tube as well as laser cut PALS compatible slits which offer a lower snag hazard than externally sewn-on webbing. As you can probably tell, it’s a laminate construction with a 725D Cordura face fabric, but it also has an internal urethane coating. This is in a light color which aids with identification of gear when digging through the pack in low light. Another feature you aren’t going to see from the photos is the laminated frame suspension.

There is a waterproof TIZIP with T handle retention loop, which facilitates a wide opening in order to access your gear.

It also has padded dual density shoulder straps as well as a sternum strap.

The waist belt is removable and stowable.

Internally, there is a zippered pocket in the main compartment for smaller items as well as a Velcro Loop Panel for use of the Velocity Systems Inserts developed for LEAF’s Khard series of packs.

Made in Canada.

Thanks to Richard King Photography for the photos!
