Crosman Announces National Field Target Competition Series

Tuesday, August 18th, 2015


BLOOMFIELD, New York (August 14, 2015) Crosman Corporation, the world leader in the design and manufacture of airguns for hunting, recreation and competitive shooting, has partnered with the American Airgun Field Target Association (AAFTA) to create the Crosman National Field Target Series. The Series is open to AAFTA participants using Crosman or Benjamin rifles and pistols in competition and will kick off in October with the start of the 2015-16 season.

“The Crosman National Series is an exciting points competition that recognizes participation while rewarding performance,” said Chip Hunnicutt, Marketing Manager for Crosman. “Crosman has hosted the USA’s second largest field target event for the past six years and the CNS is a natural evolution of the company’s support of this fun and exciting sport.”

AAFTA sanctions events across the country, all conducted by Member Clubs and featuring divisions and classes for a variety of shooting styles. Shooters must successfully knock down targets placed at ranges from 10 to 55 yards with kill zones from 3/8” to 1.5” in diameter. Larger regional matches are featured in the AAFTA Grand Prix and the season culminates late in the year with the AAFTA National Championship. Participants in the Crosman National Series will rank based upon their cumulative scores throughout the year with bonus points awarded for shooting in Grand Prix events, the National Championship and the Crosman All-American Field Target Championship.

“Field Target is not unlike 3-D Archery or Golf in that every course is different and that’s a major draw for folks looking for an alternative to punching paper on a range,” says Hunnicutt. “Crosman products are popular for their affordability, accuracy and overall performance, all reasons why they’re a great choice for field target competition.”

The Crosman National Series will offer AAFTA Member Clubs access to featured products to boost their local shooting programs and additional discounts for advertising their events. The top three finishers in the Rifle and Pistol disciplines will be awarded product gift certificates and free entry to the Crosman All-American.

“Crosman has supported AAFTA for many years and we are excited to have an industry leader step up to help grow the sport of Field Target,” said Leo Duran, AAFTA Chairman. “This program will benefit our members and match participants, so we invite shooters of all levels to come out and try Field Target!”

Snake River Shooting Products and Consulting Inc. Announces Drone Munition Now Shipping

Monday, August 17th, 2015

Last time I featured anti-drone shotshells on this site, they were a joke. But now, Snake River Shooting Products is producing real anti-drone shotshells. The full release can be read below:

Emmett, Idaho (August 2015)- Snake River Shooting Products and Consulting Inc. (SRSP) is excited to announce Drone Munition shot shell based defense rounds are now shipping. The rounds are a 12 gauge 3″ shot shell solution aimed at defending against drone-based privacy concerns and terror!

Drones, or light quad-copters, are one of the best-selling new gadgets on the market, and were among the top new Christmas gifts given in 2014.

Stories about drones are hitting the news daily in both positive and negative light. While a great product idea, unfortunately, drones have a tremendous potential for misuse and these misuses have been happening more and more frequently. With the ability to carry on board cameras, drones have been and are being used for spying on unsuspecting neighbors and others without their permission. With little regulation surrounding drone use, there is much confusion about what a person may do to defend against drone threats.

Recently, a gentleman shot down a drone that was spying on his daughter sunbathing near their pool in the backyard. There is an ongoing investigation as to whether it was a legal area to discharge a short range firearm. With this in mind, it is imperative the laws of proper firearm use are followed when using this product.

Anti-drone ammo

In addition to privacy concerns, drones can endanger people with weapons or explosives mounted to them. Recently a man announced and demonstrated in a YouTube video how he had mounted a GLOCK pistol to a drone and devised a system that allowed him to remotely fire it. Drones have also been documented flying dangerously close to commercial aircraft, and the threat is becoming more and more real for them to be used for acts of terrorism.

Drone Munition was created to provide defense against the danger caused when drones are misused. Drone Munition is lead free, safe for the environment and provides a very high quality load that will effectively disable a drone encroaching your property’s airspace. As a side note, the round also makes for a very high end hunting load for ducks, geese or turkeys.

Our friends at Lucky Gunner will be carrying the Drone Munition loads in both 2 shot and BB. Ammo can be purchased by visiting www.luckygunner.com. Several distributors including Axelson Tactical and Texas Ammo Group will be carrying Drone Munition. Dealers can reach out to these distributors or directly to our office to track down this great new product. SRSP will also be offering a line of merchandise to include T-shirts, targets and hats featuring the Drone Munition brand.

SRSP, who already manufactures Lone Survivor Marcus Luttrell’s Team Never Quit ammunition line, sees the Drone Munition line as a fantastic compliment to its products. “We are very excited to be manufacturing a product focused on defending our freedoms. We see this line as a game changer in the industry and as an important defense against rising threats to our way of life,” stated Casey Betzold, president of Snake River Shooting Products.

Enter The Gungeon

Friday, August 14th, 2015

Ok, so it might be a bit too early to be talking about this game, since it’s slated for a 2016 release and there’s not a whole lot of info out about it yet, but it looks interesting enough: guns, a gungeon, anthropomorphic bullets that shoot guns (they’re called the Gundead), tables you can flip to block bullets shot from guns, and a gun that can kill the past. Looks right up my alley.

I’ll be keeping my eye out for this one.
