Viridian Launches Grip Lasers for all North American Arms .22 Mag Revolvers

July 8th, 2020

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – July 8, 2020 – Viridian Weapon Technologies is proud to announce a partnership with North American Arms that kicks off with a Grip Laser for the NAA-PUG-D and all other NAA .22 Mag revolvers. Viridian continues to be the leader in weapon-mounted technology by offering the most gun-specific lights, lasers, cameras and accessories for the most popular firearm brands.

Viridian Grip Lasers for North American Arms revolvers boast a simple, yet intuitive design and activate automatically when the user grips the handgun. Each option has an MSRP of $199.00, is designed to fit all magnum frame revolvers and features a highly-visible red laser for rapid target acquisition. The grip lasers are easy to install and adjust. Viridian grip lasers increase comfort and improve the ability to accurately shoot the firearm thanks to a rubber over-molded design. Each Grip Laser also features an industry-best seven-year limited warranty.

“Adding firearm-specific Grip Lasers to our revolvers is great,” said North American Arms Sales Manager Jessica Jarvis. “Now North American Arms owners and future owners get increased performance across all .22 Mag Revolvers. We’re also excited for what’s coming in the very near future. We look forward to a long partnership with Viridian and think our fans and self-defense enthusiasts everywhere will benefit as well.”

The PUG-D is a small-framed revolver chambered in .22 Magnum and designed for self defense. This 5-shot capacity wheel-gun offers the ultimate in concealability and performance. It has been a popular choice for on and off-body carry for years. The addition of a reliable, highly-visible laser as part of the grip increases effectiveness in multiple situations. North American Arms also has several other .22 Mag revolvers compatible with the new Viridian Grip lasers for the ultimate in compatible upgrades.

“North American Arms has carved out an area of expertise unparalleled in this industry,” said Viridian President and CEO Brian Hedeen. “Partnering with the brand and team over there just makes sense. The Grip Laser for the PUG-D is a great start and there are some very exciting additions coming in the near future.”

Smith & Wesson – Performance Center M&P 9 Shield EZ

June 29th, 2020

For those of you unfamiliar with the M&P 9 SHIELD EZ, it’s a 9mm variant of the single-stack SHIELD EZ line of pistols, which are designed for ease of use for inexperienced shooters and those with weaker grip strength. And for those who are unaware of S&W’s Performance Center line, they’re variants of existing S&W firearms, featuring several factory-installed upgrades that are analogous to those that are common on the after-market, such as additional side milling, upgraded sights, and high-performance parts coatings.

Combine the two and you get the Performance Center M&P 9 SHIELD EZ. This particular variant features a barrel coated in TiN (Titanium Nitride), giving it a striking gold appearance and increased lubricity and wear resistance, with the aluminum trigger and grip safety given a similarly gold anodized finish. The stainless steel barrel is ported to help reduce muzzle flip, and the slide features lightening cuts to reduce weight. The sights are HI-VIZ Litewave H3 Tritium/Litepipe Sights, which provide a high-visibility sight picture equally in high and low-light conditions.

Variants with thumb safety, and with either a stainless or Armornite (nitride) finish barrel are also available.

The Hacksmith – Predator Thermal Vision Helmet

June 21st, 2020

YouTube Channel The Hacksmith created a thermal vision helmet inspired by the ones worn by the Predators/Yautja from the series of the same name. They accomplished this by utilizing several off-the-shelf camera and computer components, including a FLIR Lepton 3.5 thermal censor pulled from a FLIR ONE Pro thermal imaging camera, and mating them to a Zeiss Cinemizer headset, all mounted within a Predator-themed motorcycle helmet cover. However, they didn’t stop there, as they also utilized a Wicked Lasers LaserCube with a custom 3D-printed shoulder mount to replicate the Predator’s laser cannon. The end result is a working helmet that can switch between various vision modes, and a shoulder-mounted laser that projects a triangular reticle, and can pop balloons almost instantly; in short, it’s pretty damn cool.

    Prometheus Design Werx – Ti-FS Mk2 Survival Lighter

    June 10th, 2020

    A durable and reliable lighter is a major boon to any survival or outdoors kit, and Prometheus Design Werx’s Ti-FS Mk2 Survival Lighter is designed to handily fulfill that role. The Mk2 features an 6AL-4V titanium chassis, with a stonewashed tumble and bead peened finish, and a plated brass lighter core.

    The exterior is clearly modeled after the WWII-era Mk 2 ‘pineapple’ grenade – which also lends towards the lighter’s name – which provides a better grip surface for cold/wet conditions. The lighter is weather-resistant, with an o-ring seal to keep moisture out of the interior.

    The Mk2 comes packaged in a reusable survival tin with extra flints, a spare wick, and two extra o-rings.

    Nerf Ultra Two Motorized Blaster

    May 31st, 2020

    The NERF Ultra Two is part of Hasbro’s latest line of NERF blasters, named after their new “Farthest flying NERF darts ever!”, the Ultra dart. The blaster is battery powered, and fires from an enclosed, rear-mounted “fast-back” 6-dart cylinder. To fire, you hold down an acceleration button which powers the on-board motor, then the trigger to fire a dart. This blaster also features a nondescript accessory rail along the 12 and 6 o’clock positions of the frame, however none of the official product descriptions note whether these rails are compatible with existing NERF N-Strike accessories, however given how similar the rails look, I’d hazard a guess and say, yes, they do.

    The Ultra dart itself features a new aerodynamic design, with stabilizing “Aerofin Technology” on the rear of the dart, along with a segmented lightweight foam and a newly designed flight tip. According to Hasbro, these darts are capable of firing out to 120 ft (or 36m for our international friends), although results may vary.

    Available wherever NERF products are sold.

    Noah Gragson’s No. 9 Xfinity Series Car to Feature TrueTimber® Camo for NASCAR’s Return to Racing

    In Search of Tomorrow – The Definitive 80’s Sci-Fi Documentary (Official Trailer)

    May 17th, 2020

    80s Sci-Fi movies get a bit of play here on this site, so it seemed appropriate to bring up a 4 hour documentary on the very subject. ‘In Search of Tomorrow’ is intended as the “Definitive 80’s Sci-Fi documentary”, consisting of “interviews with actors, directors, writers, SFX experts, and composers” of these beloved films.

    Movies such as Escape from New York (one of my personal favorites, if it wasn’t clear), Predator, Aliens, RoboCop, The Wrath of Kahn, and much more will be the focus of the documentary. Cast and crew alike have been interviews, discussing the characters, special effects, production design, socio/political context, and legacy of these films, so it’s shaping up to be a pretty comprehensive documentary.

    It’s currently up for funding on Kickstarter, but has blown past it’s initial goal of $40,000 and is currently up to a bit over $520k at the time of writing, with only 10 hours to go on the campaign – this one’s a sure thing.

    All the same, you can check out the link below to pledge to the campaign, maybe have your name as part of the credits:

    First Colorado Agency Implements Viridian Gun Cameras

    May 12th, 2020

    MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – May 11, 2020 – The Kit Carson County Sheriff’s Office has deployed the FACT Duty™ Weapon-Mounted Camera (WMC™). Sheriff Tom Ridnour has been working to equip his force for modern policing over the last year. Every sworn deputy of the Eastern Colorado county now has a Weapon-Mounted Camera in the field to compliment body cameras.

    The rural force is responsible for patrolling over 2,000 square miles that includes the border with Kansas. Sheriff Ridnour has been working to implement Viridian gun cameras, and was able to get them deployed on March 1 of this year. That timing coincided with the first time footage from Viridian’s gun camera was used in an officer-involved shooting (OIS) trial in Texas. A jury quickly convicted the defendant of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon on a public official. The WMC provided the critical evidence in the case by showing the defendant pointing a sawed-off shotgun at Vernon, Texas Police Corporal T.J. Session.

    “The Weapon-Mounted Cameras provide a new layer of visibility and perspective for our deputies,” said Sheriff Ridnour. “As a rural force, we cover a huge area with a limited number of personnel. The range of responsibilities our deputies have is equally as great—and knowing we now have the FACT Duty gun cameras in the field gives us even more coverage and awareness.”

    Viridian has created an important category for law enforcement with the introduction of the Weapon-Mounted Camera. This distinctive camera provides an unobstructed view of critical use-of-force events from the end of the firearm, addressing limitations officers can face with body cameras.

    “Sheriff Ridnour has been dedicated to bringing the latest technologies to his department, and we’re thrilled he added the FACT Duty,” Viridian President and CEO, Brian Hedeen, said.  “Our technology can be a supplement or alternative to body cameras as a mandatory evidentiary tool to provide the critical evidence in an officer involved shooting. We commend Sheriff Ridnour for being the first to deploy in Colorado and wish him and his deputies the best during these unprecedented and challenging times for all first responders.”

    The highly advanced WMC employs a 1080p full-HD digital camera with a microphone and 500 lumen tactical light. Viridian’s proprietary INSTANT-ON® technology automatically activates the camera and microphone whenever the officer draws the firearm from its holster. Not only does this eliminate risk of failure to manually turn on the camera during a critical event, but it also keeps the officer from fumbling with cumbersome equipment.

    More information on the FACT Duty can be found here or by contacting Viridian directly at [email protected].

    French film production and distribution company StudioCanal, which late last year released 4k restorations of some of John Carpenter’s most iconic films, is adding the cult classic Flash Gordon to their 4k restoration offerings. No word on a theatrical release for this one, however like the previously mentioned Carpenter films, the Flash Gordon 4K restoration is receiving its own 4K UHD Collector’s Edition set:

    As you can tell from the picture alone, this set comes loaded to the brim with add-ins, including:

    ● Bonus Blu-Ray Disc of LIFE AFTER FLASH
    ● Soundtrack
    ● 32 page booklet
    ● 16 page Titan mini book (The Story of Flash Gordon)
    ● Reproduced booklet of the first strip of original comic books
    ● Poster of original artwork

    In addition to a copy of the movie, commentary tracks, documentaries, ect.

    It is currently available for pre-order from Amazon.uk, but unfortunately will not ship to the States, so you’ll need to find friends in Transatlantic places, or find another way to get a copy imported if you’re on this side of the pond.

    Nebula-75 – Episode One

    May 6th, 2020

    Are you a fan of the old Supermarionation shows of the 60s like Thunderbirds and Stingray? Then take a peak at this new Supermarionation show, Nebula-75, which depicts the adventures of Commander Ray Neptune and the crew of the spaceship Nebula-75 as they explore uncharted worlds and discover new forms of life. Amazingly, the principal production for this show is done by three members of the Century 21 films crew inside their London flat, which they all share as roommates. Their living room was transformed into a studio, while a combination of household objects and puppets and props from other Supermarionation productions were used to create the set and the characters for the show. A worldwide crew of remote workers contributed to pre and post-production.

    If you like what you see, there’s already a second episode available:

    PIG FDT Delta+ Glove TAD Edition

    April 23rd, 2020

    For what it’s worth, PIG gloves are easily my favorite tactical glove currently available on the market. The design allows for incredibly dexterous hand movement while utilizing a glove, and they have a great selection of features, including the touchscreen compatible forefinger and thumb, the elastic wrist for easier don and doff, and the paracord pull loop.

    Well, equally awesome small batch gear and apparel company Triple Aught Design is partnering up with PIG to produce a PIG FDT Delta+ Glove TAD Edition. The FTD Delta+ TAD Edition is exclusive to Triple Aught Design, and features a single layer leather palm upgrade over the standard PIG gloves, making these more robust for hard field use. The forefinger and thumb feature a carbon impregnated leather to retain touchscreen compatibility, while the rest of the glove is made of a two-way stretch poly material with TAD’s trademark 3D topo screen print accents, and the paracord wrist pull also sports an integrated TAD logo.

    Unfortunately, the PIG FDT Delta+ TAD Edition gloves aren’t yet available for direct purchase. Rather, they’re currently up as a timed project on TAD’s website, available for pre-order with about 8 days left before the project closes, at the time of writing. TAD also noted on their Facebook page that “[They] can’t promise a restock at this time due to long manufacturing lead times. This might be your only opportunity to secure a pair for 2020.” So, if you want to jump on these, you better do it soon!

    PIG FDT Delta+ TAD Edition gloves are being offered in four colors: Black, Carbon Grey, Coyote Brown, and Ranger Green; sizes S – 2XL.
