G3D Printables Training Knives and Dummy Rounds

I recently came across G3D Printables and was struck by what a clever use of 3D printing technology it is. They make training items like dummy rounds and training knives – items that have traditionally been expensive when you consider how simple they are. G3D Printables is able to offer them at extremely affordable prices thanks to the efficiencies offered by 3D printing.

In addition to the cost benefits, there are also benefits in the accuracy they can achieve in reproducing something like a knife. They are also able to print using different materials to achieve different results like both hard and flexible versions of knife trainers.

If all of that isn’t interesting enough, they can also take on custom prints so they may be able to help you create a trainer or dummy round for a one-off custom knife or oddball cartridge. This could also offer opportunities for custom knife makers to offer affordable trainers for their designs without having to produce them in-house. They recently completed a collaboration with Wingard Wearables to create a trainer for the Quill.

IR.Tools™ Release New Thermal Powered Targets

CROFTON, MD – July 29, 2020 – Established in 2006, IR.Tools, a leading provider of IR (infrared) protection for the Military and Law Enforcement, first offered a ¾” infrared patch sewn on every military uniform in the United States. Shortly after, they became a leading provider for infrared technology, with passive infrared patches, markers, and shooting targets for night vision and thermal image operations all over the world. Tom Boyer, owner and lead engineer, jumped at the opportunity to add powered targets to his suite of high contrast passive shooting targets.

We now provide our optics customers a one stop shop for all their thermal targets. Passive or Powered we will service them with a premium thermal target.

Tom Boyer, Owner, IR. Tools

Set to release on July 15, this new powered thermal target heated with proprietary Fabroc® technology is nearly indestructible. Constructed with a rubber like material, it has no wires to short circuit from bullet penetration.  Powering up on a 12 or 24-volt battery, the integrity of this lightweight, heat-efficient target remains intact for over 500 rounds, with a consistent thermal image and no flaring to disrupt training exercises.

What makes this thermal shooting target so unique is its durability. Fort Bragg, NC, has been shooting at the same Fabroc™ targets for 9-years. And IR.Tools aims to provide this stand-out IR target to the military, special forces, law enforcement, hunters, and recreational sportsmen alike.

The unmatched number of shots it takes while maintaining a clear, realistic image to shoot is incredible.

Not only are these powered thermal targets necessary for training, but they are easy to use. Their longevity means they are cost-effective. Now you can have a safe powered thermal target that lasts during some of the more complex training options, such as shoot, no-shoot scenarios.

You can purchase the powered thermal shooting target for an MSRP of $60.00 – $90.00 at INV PRO TECH Tools.

Protecting Those Who Protect Us is the IR.Tools mission. Their goal is to bring the men and women who risk their lives everyday home safe to their loved ones. In addition to advanced weapon training targets, IR.Tools proprietary IR patch, passive thermal targets, zeroing targets and thermal vehicle markers provide excellent IFF protection. Tom Boyer’s vision and passion for innovation has resulted in 21 patents. Be assured your IR.Tools protection is top-notch.

Innocent Balloon Drill from Mission Spec

Mission Spec shared the Innocent Balloon Drill with us recently. If you are looking for a drill that is easy to set up, requires little space, and is very challenging, give it a try.

The set up is simple. Place 3 of your normal paper targets with 2 balloons taped to each one. The balloons should be colored with a specific color on each target. Your training partner calls out a color and that target is engaged without popping the “innocent balloons”.
