Colt’s Manufacturing Company Expands The Mustang Family


WEST HARTFORD, Conn. – Colt‘s Manufacturing Company LLC, one of the world’s leading designers, developers and manufacturers of firearms, is proud to introduce the newest member of the Colt Mustang family, the polymer framed Mustang XSP. Like its predecessors, the classic Colt Mustang and Mustang Pocketlite, the XSP is sure to become a popular option for concealed carry.

“The Mustang and Mustang Pocketlite have been favorites of our customers for years. We are excited to build on those very successful products and evolve them even further to meet ever growing customer needs,” said Joyce Rubino, Vice President of Marketing for Colt’s Manufacturing. “The new XSP takes the best of its predecessor models and adds features that will make it appealing to an even wider customer base.”

Taking advantage of the polymer grip frame, the most noticeable features of the XSP model revolve around optimizing grip comfort and utility. A molded thumb perch under the safeties lets the gun sit easily and comfortably in hands of all sizes. A special enhanced cut behind the trigger guard also helps the gun sit lower in the user’s hand. Blended safety and sidestop profiles, as well as enhanced texturing on the front and back strap, provide increased comfort and create a snag-free profile.

While some basic features of the Mustang Pocketlite, such as size, magazine and slide, continue in the Mustang XSP, numerous changes to the new model reflect customer sentiment. This includes upgrading the front sight on the XSP to a dovetailed design that is more visible to the user. The slide serrations on the XSP have been enhanced to offer an improved grip when working the slide. The XSP also features ambidextrous safeties, rather than the typical single sided safety. Two additional changes are an integral 3/8″ accessory rail below the dust cover, and a squared off trigger guard that will allow for easy mounting of lasers and lights to enhance personal protection capabilities.

The Mustang XSP is constructed of an ultra-durable engineered polymer, making it the lightest-weight of all the Mustang models at less than 12 ounces. The slide and barrel are machined from stainless steel bar stock, and the slide has a blackened finish. The XSP has a 6-round magazine capacity, is chambered in .380 Auto and has a recommended retail of $649.

The Barnett Vengeance


Leave nothing to chance with the Barnett Vengeance crossbow. Representing a major leap in crossbow evolution, the Vengeance is the first crossbow to combine reverse draw technology with a lightweight CarbonLite Riser. The combination produces a bow with significantly less vibration and noise than a traditional draw crossbow without sacrificing speed or accuracy.

This exceptional new reverse draw configuration shifts the center of gravity closer to the shooter’s body by moving the limb pockets closer to the trigger assembly, while the limbs face forward on the bow. This design arrangement drastically reduces the weight at the front of the crossbow, which is essential for a well-balanced shot.

A CarbonLite Riser assembly further reduces the weight without compromising strength or accuracy. The most technically advanced riser ever created for a crossbow, the CarbonLite Riser removes approximately 43% of weight from the riser, which dramatically shifts the balance point to the shoulder. The reverse draw design coupled with the CarbonLite Riser allows the Vengeance to provide the steadiest and most accurate shot possible.

Decorated in a carbon fiber finish or in a high-definition camouflage, the Vengeance is available through retailers as a complete package with crossbow, quick detach quiver, three 22″ arrows and an illuminated 3×32 Multi Reticle Scope. Like all other Barnett Crossbows, the Vengeance is proudly made in the USA.

Speed: 365 FPS
Draw Weight: 150 lbs.
Power Stroke: 18″

From its inception, over a half century ago, Barnett Crossbows has led the industry with pioneering innovations and patents to become the world’s number one manufacturer of crossbows. Barnett’s engineers have created its latest range of crossbows based on the changing needs and desires of today’s hunters. Lightweight, adjustable and powerful, Barnett has brought crossbow technology to the height it stands at today. Barnett is committed to delivering high quality performance products with unparalleled service and value for all that use the Barnett Range. Built for maximum speed, efficiency and Built for the Hunt!

Bushnell Outdoors Introduces Portable Power Product Designed for Off-the-Grid Adventure


Overland Park, Kan. – Bushnell Outdoors, an industry-leader in outdoor product innovation, has introduced a unique portable power product line that includes both solar and battery devices. PowerSync, featuring nine lightweight, rugged and portable products, provides power on demand via a simple plug-and-play USB port.

Whether it’s a weekend in the woods or the backcountry hunt of a lifetime, the fact of the matter is more and more hunters are taking portable electronics into the outdoors. And inevitably, at some point during each adventure, those devices will need a charge. From recharging a smart phone to powering up a satellite phone in the backcountry, PowerSync was developed to power those off-the-grid adventures.

With a sixty-five-year history developing products for outdoor adventure, durability is at the forefront of design in the five new PowerSync solar products. Each product is housed in a durable, rubber-armored case that’s built to protect the solar panel and onboard high-capacity lithium-ion battery.

Understanding performance is everything, Bushnell outfitted the PowerSync solar line with advanced amorphous silicon thin film solar technology that performs in less than full sunlight and collects energy more efficiently than the crystalline products on the market. Inherently more durable and portable than rigid crystalline panels, PowerSync features a rollable or foldable design that provides more solar surface area at less weight. Redundant wiring throughout the solar panel allows each cell to collect energy independently, meaning a damaged cell won’t diminish the overall performance.

The PowerSync solar line includes three highly capable solar products: SolarBook, SolarWrap and SolarWrap Mini. Available in two configurations (models 850 and 600), SolarBook is the ultimate portable charging system. Featuring the largest solar collection capacity and dual lithium-ion batteries, SolarBook packs some serious power in a tablet-sized, 24-ounce package. SolarWrap, available with an extended and standard length solar panel (models 400 and 250), offers impressive solar capability in a rollable design that stows in a compact cylindrical case and weighs less than 11 ounces. The ultimate in portability, thanks to an ultra-compact design and a total product weight of just over three ounces, SolarWrap Mini can be easily deployed on a pack for on-the-go solar collection.

The PowerSync battery line includes four products, with three featuring high-capacity lithium ion batteries and one including four rechargeable AA batteries. Power Charger, the workhorse in the line, has two USB ports and a convenient field light for nighttime use. Available with a dual battery and two USB outputs or a single battery and one USB output, Battery Bar is a lightweight, easy to stow backup battery option. With its four rechargeable AA batteries, the AA Battery Charger can recharge devices via USB or the batteries can be removed to replace dead batteries.

With nine products in the line, there is a PowerSync solution for every adventure. The five solar products have suggested retail prices that range from $59.99 – $299.99, and the four battery products range in price from $54.99 – $99.99. Designed for the modern outdoorsman, Bushnell Outdoors is a new collection of rugged and durable gear built to withstand the rigors of the trail, off-trail or wherever camp is pitched.

Wiley X®, Inc. Honors America’s Heroes This Memorial Day


Memorial Day – which falls on Monday, May 27 this year – means many things to Americans. It’s the start of the summer holiday season and is marked by millions “hitting the road” in that great American tradition known as the family road trip. Others use the three-day weekend to celebrate with friends and family closer to home, marking the occasion with backyard barbecues, beach parties or family reunions.

While these are all wonderful things, veteran-owned protective eyewear manufacturer Wiley X, Inc. reminds us all not to lose sight of the solemn meaning behind Memorial Day. This uniquely American holiday is set aside for our nation to remember the estimated 1.2 million brave American soldiers who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country dating back to the Revolutionary War.

“We’ve all heard the saying that freedom isn’t free – in fact, we’ve heard it so much that perhaps it has lost some of its meaning,” said Wiley X Co-Founder Myles Freeman, Jr. “Memorial Day is a great opportunity for our nation to slow down and really think about this message – that the freedoms we all enjoy every day come at a cost. Our nation has long been blessed with brave men and women willing to pay that cost for all of us, and this special day is in their honor,” Freeman added.

Wiley X has a long connection with America’s military, providing advanced ballistic eye protection to our soldiers for more than 25 years. Every pair of Wiley X sunglasses meets stringent ANSI Z87.1 High Velocity and High Mass Impact Safety standards, providing occupational grade protection for all wearers and a wide range of activities. Wiley X is the only premium sunglass brand with this level of vision protection in every pair of glasses it makes. Selected Wiley X models also meet the updated MIL-PRF-32432 (GL) MCEP Standard (superseding the GL-PD 10-12 MCEP Standard) for combat protective eyewear. This level of proven protection is a key reason why Wiley X is a top eyewear choice for law enforcement and other tactical applications in addition to military users.
