ExtremeBeam M-1000 Fusion Flashlight

M1000 flashlight

ExtremeBeam has added the M-1000 Fusion to their impressive line of flashlights. Designed to be a powerful field light, the M-1000 has a maximum output of 850 lumens, and light settings of high, low, and strobe.

Made with a mirror-finished reflecting cone that is slow cut from a solid bar of high density aircraft aluminum, the light from the M-1000’s 850-lumen HO-LED bulb is able to be tapered into a powerful beam that can reach out to 600 meters. The flashlight head has “cooling fins” to help reduce heat, leaving the flashlight cool to the touch even after hours of continuous use, and the bezel has a “tactical” design for extra protection from impact with hard objects.


Lancer L30 Rifle

Lancer L30

Lancer Advanced Weapons and Components introduced their L30 Series Rifle at the SHOT Show Media Day at the Range.  The L30 is designed to be a larger caliber, precision semi-auto rifle.  The L30 will accept the new L7 Advanced Warfighter Magazines, but will accept other SR25/DPMS style magazines as well.

The foundation of the Lancer L30 is the patented lower receiver design that incorporates an oversized magazine release button, ambidextrous bolt release lever, and a removable magwell extension.  It is the later that really displays the ingenuity of the Lancer engineers, and is a patented advancement to the AR design.  The magwell extensions are precision machined from billet aluminum, with features that will match the lower receiver.  The extensions are made to tolerances that eliminate the potential for rattling when the rifle is fired.

New Hornady Custom Lite Ammo

Hornady Reduced Recoil Ammo

Hornady announced the addition of several new products at the 2014 SHOT Show in Las Vegas. Hornady has earned one of the finest reputations in the industry for producing some of the most accurate and high quality ammunition on the market. These new additions look to add to that reputation and open up new possibilities.

One of those new products is the Custom Lite line of ammunition, which claims to reduce recoil 25-40% from standard loads, as well as reduced muzzle blast. Using slightly lighter bullets and modified propellants, Hornady claims a significant recoil reduction can be accomplished. This line is a great way to introduce new shooters, those shooters with smaller frames, or shooters with physical hinderances to larger caliber rifles that they would likely be prevented from shooting with standard cartridges.


The National Rifle Association: Where do you stand?

The National Rifle Association (NRA) perhaps stirs the emotions of the pro-gun and anti-gun proponents like no other organization. On of the latest NRA slogans is “Stand and Fight”, referring to fighting for American citizens’ 2nd Amendment rights. By far the NRA gets most of its publicity, both pro and against, from its media actions and lobbying for pro-gun legislation.

What you may not know is that the NRA does more than just fight for gun rights.  In fact, the political actions of the NRA may be dwarfed when compared to the work done to train and educate Americans on safe gun handling, marksmanship, self defense and more.
