Crimson Trace Announces LG -412 Laserguard for Ruger LC9

The LG-412 Laserguard from Crimson Trace, engineered in conjunction with Ruger for as a perfect fit to their hot new LC9, will be available July 1 through the company’s normal distribution channels at $209.

The new LG-412 was subjected to a particularly arduous series of tests, due to the unique characteristics of Ruger’s compact and powerful design. “The combination of lightweight polymer frame and full power 9mm loads generate a lot of G-force,” said Michael Caulk, Director of Engineering for Crimson Trace. “As a result, we put the new laserguard through some very stringent testing to make sure it met the high standards Crimson Trace is known for.” The LG-412 fits seamlessly to the Ruger’s trigger guard and dust cover, resulting in a unit that adds nothing to the width of the pistol. “One of our design parameters was to make a sight that would keep the pistol as sleek as possible concealed carry,” said Caulk. “I know we’ve achieved that goal.”

The LG-412 features an industry-leading 4 hour continuous run time on one 1/3N battery and is pre-zeroed from the factory at 50′. Windage and elevation adjustments may be fine tuned by the user for different loads. Crimson Trace has been working with major holster manufacturers to ensure their consumers have carry options for laser-equipped LC9s and these holsters will be available from either the holster maker or Crimson Trace at the time of the LG-412 launch.

“Fawnzy” Predator Decoy By Montana Decoy

With fawning season beginning or just around the corner in many areas, the Fawnzy Predator Decoy is an ace up the sleeve for early summers predators. Utilizing Montana Decoy’s HD photography, this decoy will fool even the most practiced predator eyes.

“Predators target key prey species such as whitetail deer fawns during specific times of the year,” said Les Johnson, host of Predator Quest TV. “Montana Decoy’s Fawnzy adds a whole new realm of realism in the decoys I use in the field each year to be more successful.”

The simple twist-and-stake set up is a hallmark of all Montana Decoys and the Fawnzy fits easily in a predator vest or pack. For use by gun or bowhunters, this small, secret weapon can help with success in even hard hunted areas.

The Fawnzy Predator decoy expands to 24×22 inches set up. Weighing in at a mere 21 oz means it will go unnoticed until you stop to call. Suggested retail for Fawnzy is $44.99 and is on dealer shelves now.

Visit www.montanadecoy.com or call 888-332-6998 for a full list of decoys, tips and where to find a dealer near you.

About Montana Decoy

Created in 1996 by Jerry McPherson, Montana Decoy got its start from an average hunter trying to improve his bowhunting success. Tormented by an uncooperative bull elk, McPherson returned to his truck, thinking about how he could design a packable decoy without adding bulk and weight. McPherson got inspiration from folding band saw blades. He utilized the same twist-and-fold concept to hold open the decoy image.

Montana Decoy offers turkey, elk, whitetail, mule deer, antelope and predator options along with a Moo Cow confidence decoy. All share the same ease of use, light weight and ultra realistic HD photography.

Woolrich Elite Series Tactical® Introduces Elite Concealed Carry Chino

Woolrich, PA – Woolrich Elite Series Tactical introduces the Elite Concealed Carry Chino as part of the Concealed Carry Collection. With more than 180 years of clothing experience behind the design, the Elite Concealed Carry Chino offers a level of comfort, durability and style unmatched by other tactical pants.

The Elite Concealed Carry Chino has the clean profile of a standard pair of pants. For those desiring the utmost in discretion, there are no external cargo or utility pockets to draw attention. Instead, a hidden chamber pocket has been strategically designed and placed to significantly reduce printing. An invisible zipper keeps the inner pocket securely and discreetly closed. For additional stealth, cardstock or paper can be placed in the outer pocket, effectively eliminating any printing.

Two percent spandex yarns have been added to the 98% cotton fabric to give the Elite Concealed Carry Chino a flexible stretch. This offers greater flexibility and range of movement than standard cotton. A comfort fit waistband features elastic side panels, which provides the flexibility to wear the pant with or without an inside-the-waistband holster. A reinforced crotch provides durability.

The bottom edge of the front pocket opening has been cut so that pocket clip knives will hang straight down into the pocket and not bulge out-as can happen with traditional pocket openings. Both rear pockets also feature slots for clip knives or other accessories.

Woolrich Elite Series Tactical® Introduces Elite Concealed Carry Chino Available in black and khaki, the Elite Concealed Carry Chino is offered in even waist sizes 28″- 48″, and inseam even sizes 30″- 36″.

MSRP: 28″- 44″ $59.99; 46″- 48″ $69.99
