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

Tuesday, May 19th, 2020

INMAN, S.C. – May 19, 2020 – Noah Gragson’s JR Motorsports number 9 paint scheme featuring sponsors TrueTimber, Bass Pro Shops and Black Rifle Coffee Company will be showcased Tuesday night, May 19, at Darlington Raceway as NASCAR returns to the track following COVID-19. Gragson brought home a victory at Daytona earlier this year in the car featuring TrueTimber Viper Urban camo and looks to bring home another top finish. The race is set for 8:00 p.m. ET with no fans, only essential personnel and will be shown live on FS1.

“While we are dealing with the unprecedented circumstances associated with COVID-19 and the road to recovery, it is great to see that NASCAR is able to get back to the track,” said TrueTimber CEO Rusty Sellars. “Noah has had a great season so far and we are looking forward to what he can do in the future. JRM is a fantastic partner and we love seeing Bass Pro Shops, Black Rifle Coffee and TrueTimber come together on this awesome car.”

After four races in the 2020 season, Gragson sits sixth in the NXS standings with one win, two top five finishes, three top 10s and has led 44 laps total. Gragson will be accompanied by three other JR Motorsports drivers including Michael Annett, Justin Allgaier and Daniel Hemric for Tuesday night’s race. In 35 previous starts at Darlington, JRM has earned two wins, eight top five finishes and 20 top 10s.

“It’s going to be weird experiencing a race without fans, but we plan to put on a great show so that everyone watching on TV has something to be excited about,” said Gragson.

Obviously Tactical – Coronavirus Shooting Target

Wednesday, April 15th, 2020

In these trying times, you may be inclined, even find it prudent, to continue to practice your shooting – provided you’re not limited by a stay-at-home order, and you can even find any ammo. If those aren’t issues for you, but you’re left wanting for a target reflecting the times, then Obviously Tactical has you covered with their Coronavirus Shooting Target. Each sheet nets you 4 virus-themed bullseyes to aim at, with a couple of extras if you count the decorative toilet paper targets on the lower corners.

The targets are 18″ x 24″, printed on 100% recycle paper with a matte coating. They’re available in packs of 1, 2, or 5.

Obviously Tactical also states that 50% of all proceeds through April 30th will be donated to displaced workers affected by the Coronavirus Pandemic.

Saturday, December 14th, 2019

GRINNELL, Iowa (December 13, 2019) – Triggered by emerging trends in the art world, Brownells unveiled its own limited-edition Modern ARt line – offering both a sculpture and t-shirts inspired by the sculpture.

Limited to only 10 signed and numbered copies, each version of “The Joke-AR” will retail for $1,200 with all proceeds going to support Special Operations Wounded Warriors – a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization dedicated to helping Purple Heart recipients of the US Special Operations community.

Based on the sculpture, the Brownells ARt shirt bears a stylized image of the yellow magazine taped to a wall on the front, and a fruit-inspired Brownells logo on the back.

Printed on white t-shirts made from a blend of 50/25/25 poly/combed ring spun cotton and rayon for comfort and style, the ARt Shirts are available in sizes Small through XXXL, and retail for $19.99.

    LA Police Gear – Atlas Tactical Christmas Stocking

    Friday, October 18th, 2019

    Yeah, it’s not even Halloween yet, but on the other hand why wait until just after Thanksgiving to start prepping for the Christmas season? And a great, tactically-inclined way to do it is with LA Police Gear’s Atlas Tactical Christmas Stocking. An evolution of the MOLLE Elite Tactical Christmas Stocking, the Atlas features laser-cut webbing for attaching various external stocking stuffers, and a 6.5″ x 3″ Velcro loop panel for patches or name tapes.

    Sacred Bones Records – Halloween “Target Practice” Poster

    Thursday, October 3rd, 2019

    In the article when I first brought up Chris Bilheimer’s ‘Target Practice’ art made for the Halloween 2018 soundtrack, and subsequently available on a t-shirt and enamel pin, I mentioned how it was unfortunate that it wasn’t available as an actual target. Well, it’s not quite there yet, however it is now available as an oversized, 23″x34″ stand-alone poster. At $15/ea, this isn’t one you’d buy just to shoot at the range, but it’d still be a cool wall piece.

    Rebel Distillers – DOOM Bone Vodka

    Saturday, September 7th, 2019

    In celebration of the upcoming DOOM: Eternal, Bethesda Softworks has partnered with Europe-based Rebel Distillers to produce a licensed DOOM Bone Vodka. What makes it bone vodka, you may ask? Well, it’s a wheat-based vodka, which is further flavored with the addition of bone marrow. The marrow is extracted from roasted and smoked beef bones, which are sourced from UK-based The Ginger Pig, a butcher known for sourcing high welfare meat. Throw in the bottle, which is produced in France, and the labels which are produced in England, and you have a truly European spirit.

    One that, unfortunately, is only seeing release in the UK, EU, and Australia. After the failure that was Nuka Dark Rum, it would be nice to see this one come stateside.

    Anyway, for those of you who are in the intended market for this release, it’s £45 for a 700ml bottle, and can be ordered at the link below:

    Mondo Tees – Metal Gear Solid Enamel Pins

    Wednesday, August 21st, 2019

    Metal Gear Solid, everyone’s favorite Tactical Espionage Action series, is getting representation in the form of enamel pins, thanks to Mondo Tees. Available at Noon CT today, the set consists of cyborg ninja Grey Fox, legendary infiltrator Solid Snake, and the fourth wall breaking psychic Psycho Mantis, as well as a fourth two-piece set which consist of a Guard with the iconic “!” alert; the later is easily my favorite of the set.

    This is a Mondo release, so it’s bound to go quick. The 2xLP of the MGS soundtrack is also due to go up at the same time, if you’re into collecting vinyl.

    Dumbgood – NERF Collection

    Saturday, August 3rd, 2019

    Dumbgood, a company that produces limited run collections of clothing and accessories based on pop culture and appealing to nostalgia, has released a NERF collection. The collection mainly consists of various shirts, although a few other items, such as a crossbody bag and ballcap, can be found. It’s kind of weird they’re doing an appeal to 90’s era NERF when they’re using the modern logo, but it is officially licensed, so that might be part of Hasbro’s requirements for the line.

    You can check out the entire line at dumbgood.com

    Happy 90th Birthday To Gaston Glock!

    Friday, July 19th, 2019

    Here’s to Gaston Glock, who turned 90 today! Principle creator of debatably the greatest combat pistol line ever made, the Glock series polymer framed pistols, in use with the military and police forces of at least 48 countries, with over 5 million models manufactured since the early 80s. And while not the first production polymer-framed handgun to reach the public market (That would be H&K’s VP70), it’s the popularity and reputation of the Glock pistol that we can all thank/blame for the huge number of polymer-framed, striker-fired handguns currently on the market.

    Palmetto State Armory – Alien-51 AR-15 Stripped Lower Receiver

    Capitalizing on the upcoming ‘Area 51 Raid’ that has become the subject of the latest 15 minutes of online amusement, Palmetto State Armory is offering pre-orders for their latest ‘meme’ lower, the “Alien-51”. Built to the same MilSpec standard as PSA’s other lowers, the “Alien-15” will feature a rollmark with the typical depiction of the ‘Grey’ extraterrestrial, complete with raygun in hand. The selector switch will be marked: ‘NO ENTRY’ – Safe, ‘STORM 51’ – Fire, and ‘RETREAT’ – Full Auto. PSA is taking orders through July 21, and will start shipping 4-6 weeks after that. They also claim this is the only time they’re offering the “Alien-51”, so if you’re interested, jump on it while you have the chance.

    What you’re looking at is a picture of a model for a 3D printable dipping sauce holder that mounts to a Picatinny rail. For when you’re oper8ing and need easy access to sauce for your tactical tendies. It’s perfectly sized for a Chick-Fil-A sauce packet, and would presumably fit similarly-sized containers from other restaurants.

    Palmetto State Armory – “Approval-15” Stripped AR Lower Receiver

    Thursday, April 18th, 2019

    PSA has released many ‘meme’ lowers, and has more in the pipeline, but the “Approval-15” is arguably the greatest so far. It features the (in)famous ATF Guy (Peter Parker from the 1967 Spider-Man cartoon with an ATF ballcap photoshopped onto his head) prominently on the magwell and the selector switch markings ‘no & no’ (safe), ‘maybe, but no’ (semi), and ‘yes, but really no’ (full-auto). Like all PSA lowers, the “Approval-15” is built to MilSpec standard, made of forged 7075-T6 aluminum with a MIL-A-8625, Type III, Class 2 black anodized finish.

    It’s also reportedly only being offered once, so if you want to get one for yourself, now’s the time.
