Hunter’s Specialties® Scent-A-Way TEK 4 Garments
Now Available to Fit Female Hunters

Hunter’s Specialties Scent-A-Way™ TEK 4™ base layer clothing has proven to be highly effective in controlling human odor and helping hunters to be more successful in the field.

For 2011 Scent-A-Way TEK 4 clothing will be available in women’s sizes specifically tailored to fit the female form for enhanced fit and comfort. Now the ladies can have the same level of odor control, perspiration management, thermal properties and comfort as their male counterparts.

Scent-A-Way TEK 4 utilizes state-of-the-art silver technology to permanently control odor caused by bacteria. Scent-A-Way TEK 4 uses up to 33% more silver than other available silver- based garments, providing unmatched odor control. Nylon threads that are permanently encapsulated in pure silver are woven into the garment, as opposed to the silver being sprayed on, dyed or dipped, so the odor controlling properties last for the life of the garment.

Scent-A-Way TEK 4 garments offer easy care. They are durable and fade resistant and can be washed with other clothing. Unlike carbon-based clothing, which has limits on how much odor it can absorb and requires special treatment to be recharged, Scent-A-Way TEK 4 will continue to control odors on the last day of the hunt as well as it did on the first.

The garments are also designed and engineered to provide permanent moisture management. They incorporate “catch, move and release” technology, which traps moisture and moves it away from the body where it can be treated by the silver and evaporated away. This keeps the hunter dry and comfortable under a wide range of weather conditions. This treatment is permanent, lasting the life of the garment.

Scent-A-Way TEK 4 has unique thermal properties, keeping users warm when it is cold and cool when the temperature rises. Silver is one of the most thermally conductive elements on the planet, helping to optimize body temperature control. The clothing is breathable, extremely comfortable and is comparable to wearing silk.

Women hunters now have a complete scent control clothing system that fits to help them increase their success in the field. Odor control, moisture management, thermal control, durability and comfort are all available with Scent-A-Way TEK 4 clothing.

Base layer pants and tops in both light and heavy weight versions and high cut briefs are available in the new women’s sizes. Headnets, gloves, socks, baseball caps and fleece caps are also available. The base layer shirt and pants come in RealTree® AP HD® with a pink Scent-A-Way accent. The high-cut briefs are available in black and feature the Hunter’s Specialties TEK 4 logo in pink.

Minimum advertised prices are:

  • Lightweight Tops and Pants – $54.99 each
  • Heavyweight Tops and Pants – $69.99 each
  • Hi-cut Briefs – $10.95 each
  • Gloves – $14.99 to $24.99
  • Caps – $12.99 to $19.99
  • Socks – $14.99 to $19.99
  • Headnets - $14.99 to $19.99

I am offering this Bushnell riflescope on special.  If you are interested in other riflescopes send me an email.  I have access to wide offering of products from Bushnell. I can get you a pretty good price on most of them.

With the BUSHNELL Elite 4200 3-9×40 Riflescope, Multi-X Reticle (423944M), you’re fully equipped to do so in the dimmest, wettest, most unforgiving circumstances. All-world benefits in the extremely versatile, low-light scope.

The Bushnell 3-9×40 rifle scope is coated with a microscopic film of magnesium fluoride, delivering an amazing 95% light transmission at 550NM. The 1/4 M.O.A. or finer fingertip, audible/resettable windage and elevation adjustment makes this Bushnell scope a “must have” for the hunters who shoot a broad range of game and at distances that vary greatly.

Thanks to RainGuard, a wet lens or a misguided breath that would fog conventional glass will never cost you a view. This patented, permanent, water-repellent coating causes moisture from rain, snow, sleet and condensation to bead up and scatter less light, so you get a clear, bright view when other optics would be rendered useless.

The Bushnell Elite 4200 riflescope is 100% waterproof, fogproof and shockproof. It is also magnum recoilproof – tested with 10,000 rounds of .375 H&H Magnum. The highlight of the hunt will most often be in low light.

SIG SAUER® Introduces New Additions to 1911 Series

EXETER, N.H.- SIG SAUER, Inc., the leading manufacturer of commercial, law enforcement and military firearms, introduces the 1911 TACPAC and two new options on the 1911-22®.

These pistols combine the American ingenuity of the venerable 1911 platform with SIG SAUER® refinements that enhance the pistol’s accuracy while still maintaining superior reliability.

The 100th anniversary of the 1911 has increased interest in the platform and driven more shooters to purchase their first 1911s. To accommodate these new 1911 fans, SIG SAUER has created the 1911 TACPAC.

This kit provides everything a shooter needs to enjoy a day at the range. Included is a full-size SIG SAUER® 1911 pistol with or without the option of an accessory rail. The .45ACP pistols feature a stainless slide, durable Nitron® finish, low-profile sights and Ergo® XT polymer grips.

The railed version of the TACPAC allows shooters to quickly mount lights or the included CPL-1® compact laser. Two magazines are standard in this kit. The non-railed TACPAC features the more traditional look of a 1911 and comes with three magazines.

A match-grade barrel, hammer and sear set are mated to a lightweight, solid aluminum trigger. A SIG SAUER® roto-paddle holster with integrated magazine pouch, Allen wrench, speed loader, and hard carry case round out the package. The TACPAC is the perfect all-in-one kit to equip those who may be purchasing their first 1911.

For shooters seeking a more economically friendly way to commemorate the 1911, SIG SAUER® introduces two new versions of the popular 1911-22® rimfire pistol. Chambered in the economical 22LR, the 1911-22® now features a more traditional, military-style finish. Flat Dark Earth and Olive Drab models join the standard 1911-22®, giving users an opportunity to own the classic 1911 platform chambered for .22LR. The 1911-22® includes “U.S.” engraved walnut grips to further enhance the historical military appearance.

Built to the same dimensions as the full-size 1911, the 1911-22® features a lightweight metal frame and slide, low-profile three-dot sights, working grip safety and ambidextrous thumb safety, making the 1911-22® a perfect training tool for 1911 fans as well as a fun plinking pistol for all ages.

Carl Zeiss Sports Optics to Distribute Hensoldt Line in the United States

CHESTER, VA – Carl Zeiss Sports Optics announced that it is taking over distribution of the Hensoldt line of optics in the United States effective May 1, 2011.
