Pennsylvania based Streamlight, Inc. recently unveiled a new version of their popular Clipmate series with an innovative new feature not typically found in other pocket sized lights. The Clipmate USB takes a new approach to rechargeable flashlights with an integrated USB cord that serves as the primary method of charging. This integrated USB cord prevents any tedious search for an outlet when you’re away from home, and there is no extra hardware to keep track of like cords or charging bases. The new Clipmate series will make on the go charging a snap via your laptop, USB compatible lantern, or even a USB car charger, and the device fully recharges in 2.5 hours. What if there is no USB around? No sweat, the Clipmate also comes with a traditional AC charger if you need a backup plan.
True to it’s name, the Clipmate USB features a unbreakable pocket clip that attaches to your shirt, pack, or other adjacent surfaces, and since the device only weighs 1.9oz, you’ll hardly notice it is there. Similar to Streamlight’s popular Stylus Pro Reach series, the Clipmate also sports an adjustable polyethylene-coated extension cable so you can direct light to where you need it the most without needing to move the base. The Clipmate USB offers both white and red LED settings, and the device can run on high power white LED for 3.5 hours or high power red LED for 16 hours.
The Clipmate USB is sure to be a favorite with law enforcement and security personnel, but we see the device best used around the campsite or on the job as a excellent alternative to a headlamp. Check out all the great Streamlight products right now at Webyshops.com.
The growing number of coyotes in Utah and the threat they present to mule deer led to the creation of the state’s Predator Control Program in 2012. By the time wildlife officials ended the program’s first year last June, more than $380,000 was paid out to 1,055 participating hunters and trappers. What many may not know, however, is that the state also awarded 13 contracts to high-performing hunters for work between December 2013 and June 2014.
According to the Utah Department of Natural Resources (DNR), the Division of Wildlife (DWR) began forming the contracts last November. To be eligible, hunters had to have turned in at least 25 coyotes through the Predator Control Program. This narrowed the pool of potential hunters to just 60. According to a report released by the DWR, more than 7,100 coyotes were taken as a result of the program, but most hunters only turned in one animal.
“The program is very successful in terms of participation,” DWR mammals coordinator John Shivik told KSL.com’s Grant Olsen.
Shivik explained that the contracts work by matching up experienced hunters and trappers with areas where fawn-to-doe ratios are low. The contracts require about 200 hours of work and may reach up to $10,000. The 13 contracts in effect now will end in June, and the DWR is considering agreeing to a similar number later this year after evaluating the program.
“This is a new program, however, that hasn’t been tried at this scale before,” Shivik said. “That is why it is so important for us to collect data on deer populations and coyote removal. In a few years, we will have enough data to be able to make a good assessment of the effectiveness of the program for helping deer herds.”
The Predator Control Program is funded by the Mule Deer Protection Act. Although coyotes can be dangerous to other animals, wildlife officials are primarily concerned about the effect the predators have on mule deer fawns. The combination of harsh winters, scarce food, and pressure from coyotes can strain deer herds to their limit, and biologists hope that the program will lead to a resurgence in the mule deer population.
“If the weather is mild and the habitat is good, then removing predators could increase the number of fawns that survive. More fawns could help to stimulate an increase in mule deer numbers,” the DWR states on its website.
Other factors make it hard to gauge whether the Predator Control Program is having an effect on deer numbers, such as available forage and the severity of weather. Animal rights groups were quick to criticize the program, while some biologists say that coyote culls have historically done little to reduce their population.
DWR officials hope otherwise, although it may be a few years until the department has enough data to make a conclusive analysis. Coyotes can produce up to six pups a year and can be difficult to hunt. Currently, the Predator Control Program reimburses hunters and trappers $50 for every confirmed coyote taken.

ARLINGTON, Texas, March 6, 2014: Outdoor retailer Webyshops.com has announced that they will begin selling firearms and ammunition to all US online customers. With this recent move, Webyshops challenges the likes of other online firearm and ammunition retailers like Midway USA, Brownells, and Cheaper Than Dirt.
Webyshops CEO Mikhail Orlov recently commented on his excitement about venturing into online firearm and ammunition sales:
Orlov went on to further describe how rare it is to find a reliable online retailer for firearms and ammunition: “Google and Amazon are starting to shun businesses in the shooting industry by removing product listings and shutting down ads that focus on gun accessories and parts. We see this as an opportunity to fill in the void and provide law abiding citizens with access to exceptional values on firearms, ammunition, scopes, and other accessories from over 300 brands and 250,000 SKUs.”
Part of their new online sales campaign involves educating the consumer on the legal and safe way to acquire firearms from legitimate sources at prices unmatched by big box stores. Now customers can easily follow their guidelines to make the process painless. Once approved for transfer, a customer can have the firearm of their choice shipped to an authorized FFL certificate holder or dealer in just a matter of days.
What are the advantages of purchasing a firearm online from Webyshops? Unlike most stores that have high cost of retail space, Webyshops maintains lower prices on their inventory because they operate more like Sam’s Club or Costco. In addition, Webyshops is electronically connected to key manufacturers and distributors in the outdoor industry. This gives customers an insider opportunity to buy direct at almost wholesale prices. Webyshops’ strong connectivity also translates into inventory that covers not hundreds, but thousands of firearms and accessories. Because of their diversified product offering, Webyshops customer service representatives can find gun parts based on the year and model of a firearm. Think an automotive parts store solution for firearms and outdoor equipment.
Like many prominent retail sites on the web, you can trace the origins of Webyshops to a small home office. Founded by a tight knit group of outdoor retail industry veterans in 2010, CEO Orlov and associates noticed there was a gap between sites that were selling firearms and sites that were focused on general outdoor gear. The former typically looked homemade and lacked the functionality consumers expect. The latter did not offer the shooting products that Webyshops’ founders considered to be in high demand. Building on the formula that customers want knowledge and direction alongside low prices, site functionality, and good design, Webyshops began by exclusively selling sports optics. Success soon saw the company expand to the entirety of the outdoor equipment market. Today they are committed to being the personal gear outfitter for every variety of shooter and outdoor explorer. In addition to their ever-growing list of online products, Webyshops also maintains a spacious Show Room at their Arlington, Texas headquarters.

Fountain Valley, CA — SureFire, LLC, manufacturer of high-end illumination tools and tactical products, has unveiled a new lightweight LED WeaponLight capable of seamlessly switching from white to infrared light-no IR filter required. The new 620V, the latest in SureFire’s Scout Light® line, features a high-output white-light and IR LED in one sealed unit, both of which are fully selectable on the fly. And for military and law enforcement personnel who rely upon both white and infrared light to conduct their business, the 620V represents a major technological advancement.
Previously, if an operator wanted high-output white and IR light from one light source, the best option was an incandescent WeaponLight paired with an infrared filter. This is because white-light LEDs produce negligible infrared radiation and cannot be paired with an infrared filter for use on covert missions involving night vision devices (NVDs). However, incandescent lamps can break and will eventually burn out, and filters can be lost or damaged in the heat of battle, which made it necessary for operators to carry extra lamps and/or filters in the field. The 620V eliminates this problem by offering both white-light/IR capability and superior durability. Durability specifically in the form of weather-sealed, solid-state LEDs, which, unlike incandescent lamps, have no filament to break or burn out, so they never need replacing.
By incorporating a selectable white and IR light LED into one head, SureFire has given operators the ability to switch from a 150 lumens of blinding white light to 120 mW of invisible (to the naked eye) infrared light in under a second. A Total Internal Reflection lens focuses the light in either mode to create a beam with plenty of reach and enough surround light to accommodate peripheral vision, making the 620V suitable for both close-quarter and longer-range applications. And to ensure the WeaponLight never accidentally switches modes in the heat of combat, a spring-loaded selector ring automatically locks in place when a mode is selected.
Along with eliminating the need to carry spare lamps and filters in the field, fewer spare batteries are also needed with this new Scout Light. This is because LEDs operate far more efficiently than incandescent lamps. The 620V generates nearly two hours of tactical-level (enough to temporarily overwhelm night-adapted eyesight) white light on a set of batteries, or eight hours of useful infrared light on that same set.
The light itself won’t bog down a weapon or add to an operator’s load, either. It’s constructed of aerospace aluminum, hard anodized with a Mil-Spec finish, that’s as strong as steel but much lighter. And its compact size-less than six inches long and under eight ounces-doesn’t compromise a weapon’s maneuverability or eat up a lot of space on an accessory rail. A quick-attach/detach throw-lever mount securely attaches the 620V to any Picatinny rail, even out-of-spec ones, in seconds. And an included tape switch gives an operator the choice of activating the light via tailcap switching or, for even more surgical control, via the pressure-sensitive tape switch.
Fountain Valley, CA — SureFire, LLC, manufacturer of high-end illumination tools and tactical products, has created a new flashlight designed and built with the needs of law enforcement officers and other tactical professionals in mind. Their new AZ2 LED CombatLight® features two useful output levels, a durable hard-anodized aluminum body, tactical tailcap switching, and SureFire’s proprietary CombatGrip, which makes pairing the light with a weapon easier.
The AZ2′s dual-output and compact size make it a great choice as an everyday-carry primary light for law enforcement officers. It features a virtually indestructible primary LED that generates a far-reaching, 150-lumen beam capable of temporarily overpowering an aggressor’s eyesight. Surrounding the main LED is a ring of four secondary LEDs that produce a 35-lumen wide-angle beam designed for clearing buildings, loading gear, and other closer-range tasks that don’t require quite so much light or reach. Both beams are shaped by a special micro-textured reflector that blends the light so there are no rings, dark spots, or other imperfections typical of lesser flashlights.
The flashlight’s body is precision milled from aerospace aluminum, which is as strong as steel but lighter, and then covered with a Mil-Spec hard-anodized finish nearly as hard as diamonds. The body is tapered to reduce weight and improve ergonomics, part of SureFire’s exclusive CombatGrip, which along with a rubber grip ring, allows the light to be held and operated “syringe style” when paired with a handgun, as well as provides excellent purchase in cold, wet weather or while wearing heavy gloves. Partially depressing the tailcap pushbutton delivers the lower output; pressing farther unleashes all 150 lumens from the light’s primary LED.
Weighing in at only 5.1 ounces, with batteries, and measuring less than six inches in length, the AZ2 is compact and combat ready-especially when paired with a lightweight, quick-deploy holster like SureFire’s V85A Polymer Speed Holster. The AZ2 currently retails for $260, and the V85A holster is sold separately for $49.
Located in Fountain Valley, California, SureFire is a leading manufacturer of high-performance flashlights, weapon-mounted lights, and other tactical equipment for those who go in harm’s way, or anyone who demands the ultimate in quality, innovation, and performance. SureFire illumination tools are used by more SWAT teams and elite special operations groups than any other brand. SureFire is an ISO 9001:2000-certified company.
