Benchmade Tactical Safety Cutters In a life-threatening emergency, waiting for…


Benchmade Tactical Safety Cutters
In a life-threatening emergency, waiting for EMS to arrive is NOT an option. Benchmade’s “cutting-edge” safety hooks are quick and efficient in emergency situations. With a longer handle, the 8 HOOK provides greater reach and leverage. The 8 BLK MED is perfect for cutting bandages, casts, medical tubing and uniforms. Designed for Explosive Ordinance Disposal (EOD) professions, the new 8 BLKWEOD can be attached to robot arms, for more accurate cutting. The dip coated T-handled grip on the 8BLKH has a comfortable in-hand-fit and provides added leverage. If you want the best features of both the 7 and 8 hook lines, pick up the 15BLKW. Contact Benchmade at 800-800-7427 or at for questions or comments.

Bushnell Introduces Elite Tactical Scopes
Bushnell’s Elite Tactical series scopes are built to withstand the hard use of military and-law enforcement situations, ensuring shooters can make quick adjustments for range and windage no matter the conditions. Elite Tactical scopes have fully multi-coated lenses with RainGuard HD, and their new Ultra Wide Band (UWB) Coating allows more usable light to enter the shooter’s eye, providing a consistent 95 percent light transmission. The scopes are purged with Argon for added corrosion resistance, longer seal life and reduced chances of fogging. Argon also conducts heat at a slower rate, reducing thermal conduction within the scope. The scopes have target turrets to help shooters quickly make adjustments for range and windage.

    As long as the barrel itself is 16 inches or longer (including integral fake suppressors), it’s not a SBR.

  • SBR country?

    I don’t think so Chad. My understanding is that rifles are measured for compliance with the National Firearms Act at their longest. This means that, with fixed or collapsible stocks, the stock is extended to its maximum length before measuring OAL. Don’t take it to the bank, but that is the rule as I remember it.

    Remember when Taurus used to copy S&W?

    Tiny problem with the Kel Tec RMR-30. Under 26″ collapsed… SBR country. Boo.
