Rally Around ITS Tactical

Bryan and Kelly Black of ITS Tactical have built into this community a lot over the years. Now the community has a chance to give back.

Trey Smith, Bryan and Kelly’s son, was recently involved in a life threatening motorcycle accident. The accident left him unconscious and severely injured, requiring him to be airlifted to a local trauma hospital. He suffered skull fractures with an accompanying brain shear, a shattered shoulder, a broken C2 vertebrae, multiple facial lacerations and will require reconstructive dental work.

Trey is now on the road to recovery but it will be a long process. There are two ways you can help:

You can donate directly via GoFundMe that has been set up to cover medical expenses: gofundme

ITS Tactical is also offering a #TREYSTRIBE Morale Patch. 100% of the proceeds from the patch will go toward helping with what is sure to be a long road to recovery. Find the patch here: #TREYSTRIBE Patch

B.E. MEYERS & CO. ANNOUNCES MAWL-X1 – NEW DOD MAWL VARIANT

MAWL®-X1

September 16, 2019 (Redmond, WA) – B.E. Meyers & Co., Inc. is proud to announce the addition of MAWL®-X1, a United States Department of Defense specific variant of the company’s highly successful MAWL® (Modular Advanced Weapon Laser) line of high-powered aiming and illumination laser systems for individual and crew-served weapons.

In 2017 B.E. Meyers & Co. submitted a Flat Dark Earth, Near-Infrared / Visible MAWL® featuring the EC2 threaded Endcap to the Soldier Enhancement Program (SEP) via the U.S. Army Maneuver Center of Excellence, known as the MAWL®-X1. Following submission, PdM-SPTD procured it for Limited User Evaluations, which were conducted by various Combat Arms including units within the 82nd Airborne Division, 173rd Airborne Brigade, and the 2nd Infantry Division, among others. Approximately 766 MAWL®-X1 units have been fielded since 2018.

True Modularity

The MAWL®-X1 is a truly modular design comprised of three separate Head, Body, and End-Cap components, which allows it to be sustainable at a supply chain level. As an ambidextrous system, it can easily be configured for either right or left-handed shooters. 

The “Alt Mount” Body allows for increased versatility across multiple weapon platforms, including the M4/M16, M27, M249, M240G, and precision rifles.


Superior Ergonomics

As with all MAWL® variants, the MAWL®-X1 is designed for intuitive operation: in the dark, under stress, and with gloves on. Featuring a simple switch mechanism with finely balanced power and divergence presets, the MAWL®-X1 allows for target transitions from close to long range in under a second.

Unparalleled Range and Clarity

B.E. Meyers and Co.’s optimized VCSEL technology delivers vastly increased performance, beam quality, beam clarity, and efficiency to the end-user. The MAWL®-X1 features balanced and stacked beams to increase situational awareness and overcome photonic barriers created by external light sources.

RifleMug

You could say RifleMug was an idea born out of necessity. It was developed by a veteran who noticed how hard deployments were on his and his friends’ coffee mugs with broken handles being normal. They were hesitant to replace their ceramic mugs because they had custom prints on them.

This experience highlighted the need for a tougher mug, made from polymer, and that could be custom printed with insignia. They might as well have a rifle as a handle because… well, it’s just cool. The idea for RifleMug was born.

Now there is a small team attempting to make this mug a reality. RifleMug is available to be backed on Kickstarter.

Will Larson Memorial

We received word that Will Larson passed away and that is a loss for our entire community. You may not know his name but there is a good chance that Will Larson has touched your life.

Did you ever receive sage, no-nonsense advice regarding AR-15s from “Iraqgunz” on an internet forum like Usual Suspects Network or M4Carbine.net? That was him. Have you ever owned a BCM or Sionics rifle? He worked with both companies (and many others). Did you ever attend an armorer’s course conducted by Semper Paratus Arms or learn from someone who did? That was Will’s company.

I never met Will personally but I and many others have benefited from his extensive knowledge of the AR-15 and his willingness to share that hard-earned knowledge with our community. My heart goes out to his family.

Will leaves behind a wife and children. He supported our community and now we have a chance to pay that back. Consider visiting the GoFundMe set up to benefit his family: Will Larson Benefit

You’re Doing It Wrong – Double Knot Your Shoes Like a Champ with Kit Badger

We all learned how to tie our shoes at some point in our lives. It probably wasn’t long after that moment that we also learned that the regular method used to tie shoes is not sufficient for many activities which is why you learned to double knot your laces. Well, if you are like me, you learned the wrong way.

I recently showed Ivan at Kit Badger a different way to double knot – one that holds as tight (if not tighter) but can still be untied the same way as a regular bow. Someone taught me this years ago and when I showed Ivan, he was skeptical but it only takes one trip up a mountain to make a believer.
