“I heard you were dead.”

October 19th, 2016

From Neca comes this Mego-style 8″ Snake Plissken action figure. Unfortunately, it’s a discontinued item but I was fortunate enough to find one at Trilogy Comics in Va Beach.

The clothing is quite loyal to the ‘Escape from New York’ costume and includes suppressed and scoped MAC-10 along with scoped revolver. There’s even a throwing star and tracker bracelet to keep tabs on the President.

In addition to interchangeable hands, Snake also has his famous tattoo.

Chuck Norris Launches Bottled Water Brand Called CFORCE

October 10th, 2016

This is a cross-post from sister site Soldier Systems Daily. It’s too apropos for the usual coverage on this site not to share here.

Billed as a ‘Force of Nature’, new CFORCE from Chuck Norris is bottled right on his Lone Wolf Ranch in Navasota, TX. As you can imagine, if Chuck Norris is involved it’s not going to come from some boring tap in a factory. On no; according to the webiste, ‘doesn’t flow from the ground; it bursts from an artesian spring with the same unharnessed power and intensity you’d expect from Chuck Norris’ roundhouse kick.’ Pretty awesome.

Please note, a portion of CFORCE sales benefit environmental initiatives and KICKSTART KIDS—a charity that empowers at-risk youth. The Norris family has supported these causes for more than 25 years.


Thanks for the heads up Nate! Stay safe out there!

Having already developed the strongest armor plate in world, the R&D team at RMA now adds the lightest level IV hard armor solution to its resume in support of police and military personnel around the globe.

GRIPsher – The Formidable Compact Multi-Tool On Kickstarter

September 28th, 2016


The GRIPsher is a compact multitool “dreamt up by an Army Veteran, refined by an MIT engineer, and brought to life with common sense”. The creators of GRIPsher have designed the tool with a variety of functions, including, but not limited to:

  • Pliers
  • Wire Cutters
  • Phillips head and flat head drivers
  • Material thickness gauge
  • Adjustable hex bolt wrench
  • Heavy duty knife
  • Perhaps the most interesting feature of the GRIPsher is the glow-in-the-dark jaws on the bottom of the tool. Dubbed the HEXGRIP system, the jaws serve as a fully adjustable way to secure hex nuts, bolts, and bits.


    Additionally, the GRIPsher team is hosting a special program called Tools For Troops. For every GRIPsher black model supported, a version of the GRIPsher with black HEXGRIP jaws will be donated to a military service member; this is the only way to get a GRIPsher with black jaws.


    3rd ANNUAL PYRAMYD AIR CUP SEES RECORD ATTENDANCE Nearly 100 Competitors Attend Premier East Coast Airgun Event

    September 27th, 2016

    CLEVELAND, OHIO (September 27, 2016) – The third annual Pyramyd Air Cup, hosted by the world’s largest internet airgun retailer Pyramyd Air, boasts the best attended AAFTA Grand Prix event for field target shooting in the U.S. during 2016. Hosted in conjunction with local AAFTA club, the Ohio Airgun & Field Target Shooters Association (OAFTSA), nearly 100 shooters descended upon the Tusco Rifle Club in New Philadelphia, OH September 9-11 for the most challenging and exciting airgun match of the year. The third annual competitive shooting event attracted amateur and professional shooters from all over the country and delivered winners in multiple airgun shooting disciplines including Field Target shooting, the fast-paced GunSlynger event, and the PayDay Challenge.

    “We introduced a record number of people to the sport of airgunning at this year’s Cup,” says Pyramyd Air CEO, Joshua Ungier. “And while the competitive spirit was remarkable amongst shooters, it was the almost tangible level of anticipation for each exciting course of fire that really sets the Pyramyd Air Cup competition apart from others,” he said.

    According to Hunter Piston class competitor Peg Brewer of Victor, NY, “Every aspect of the Pyramyd Air Cup goes above and beyond. Pyramyd Air makes the Cup a 4 star event all the way around.” Brewer states, “I can say beyond a shadow of a doubt that their demo tent, filled with an abundance of exciting airguns, got me into the sport.”

    Reigning AAFTA National Champion Ken Hughes, added, “What a weekend! The Field Target courses were challenging, and the wild, rapid-fire style of the Gunslynger event was difficult in its own right. It was great getting to meet new airgun buddies and check out the new gear from the many vendors in attendance. I really enjoyed the PA Cup!”

    “Field Target is one of the most difficult shooting disciplines out there,” says Pyramyd Air Cup Match Director, Tyler Patner. “Combine the multiple skills required to rise to the top of your game, with the myriad of factors you take into account at each lane, and you’ve got a challenging sport,” he says.

    “Targets are small, metal silhouettes of animals that consist of a kill zone and a colored paddle,” explains Patner. “Placed at unknown distances from between 10 yards to as far as 55 yards, the targets have kill-zones ranging in size from 3/8 inch to 1 1/2 inches. When the pellet passes through the kill zone and hits the paddle, the target falls and you’re awarded a point,” he said. “It’s a game of precision and practice. You range find with your scope, dope for distance, take the wind into account, and then you have to execute. It’s really a lot to take in,” he added. “There are different restrictions based upon your selected class, but the challenges remain the same. Wind doping, range finding, and remaining mentally tough over the entire course of fire are the biggest hurdles competitors face,” Patner says.

    2016 Pyramyd Air Cup Winners:

    Field Target:
    Open PCP – Brian Van Liew
    Hunter PCP – Bill Rabbitt
    Hunter Piston – Paul Manktelow
    WFTF PCP – Greg Sauve

    Numerous airgun manufacturers donated competition prizes and product to the 2016 event including, AirForce Airguns, Air Arms, Beeman, Crosman, Birchwood Casey, Diana, Feinwerkbau, H&N, Hawke Sport Optics, JSB, Leapers, Plano, Predator, Umarex, UTG, and Walther. “You’d be hard pressed to find an airgun competition with a better selection of prizes for its winners,” says Ungier. “Our winner’s packages help assure shooters that if they’re limited to traveling to only one competitive shooting event, they recognize the Pyramyd Air Cup as the industry’s premier event.”
