SnapSafe® Modular Safes – A Modern and Movable Firearm Security Solution

SnapSafe Modular Safes combine the robust security of a conventional welded safe with the benefit of being able to place them anywhere in a home or business without hiring professional movers. Depending on the model, SnapSafe Modular gun safes accommodate 12 to 56+ long guns and include adjustable shelves for flexible storage configurations. SnapSafe Modular safes protect firearms and other valuables from fire and theft. 

The firearms industry has a long-standing problem. Installing a heavy modern gun safe is impossible without the help of professionals, and in many cases, once installed, moving it is not an option! SnapSafe® has solved that problem. SnapSafe engineers have created an innovative, modular safe – one that’s delivered in pieces and fitted in place. Its robust design offers security equal to traditional welded safes. Some models have the extra-large capacity required to store extensive gun collections yet still boast the flexibility to move it anywhere. That’s the SnapSafe modular safe advantage! 

The ability to assemble and move SnapSafe modular safes anywhere sets them apart from the competition. After delivery, each piece is unpacked and fastened at its final location. The SnapSafe modular assembly system locks the walls together from the inside, making them solid and impenetrable like conventional, welded safes. 

SnapSafe Modular Safes feature a UL listed digital lock with EMP proof mechanical key backup. All safes feature a sledgehammer and pry-bar resistant 3/16” solid steel door(s) and thick, 9-gauge steel exterior walls. Single door models include eight 1-inch chrome steel live locking bolts, and double-door models use fourteen. The safes include heat-activated door fire seals and are Fire Shield protection rated at 2300°F for one hour. 

Buy with confidence, knowing SnapSafe takes care of its customers. Modular safes are warranted against material defects and workmanship for the life of the product. If it breaks, they’ll repair it or replace it.

Commission approves 2022 bighorn sheep season

LINCOLN, Neb. – The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission approved the authorization of one lottery and one auction permit for the 2022 bighorn sheep season when it met Aug. 27 in Gering. The 2022 bighorn sheep season will be Nov. 29-Dec. 22.

Commissioners also drew the winner of the 2021 bighorn sheep lottery permit. The winner is Tait Knutson of Niobrara.

The Commission also amended aquatic invasive species regulations to:

add five plant species and recategorize some species on the AIS list;define that boat drain plugs must be removed when leaving a Game and Parks launch site;define that aquatic plant material and any lake water cannot be present on vessels or trailers when entering or leaving a Game and Parks launch site; andaddress inspection requirements and decontamination procedures when AIS are found

Additionally, the commissioners heard a report on water issues, including instream flow appropriations. They heard updates on the progress of the depredation program, the agency’s media and social media efforts, and a report on fishing permit sales in 2021 compared to 2020.

Donald (Tad) King made a special donation in memory of his late wife, Linda, to the Nebraska Game and Parks Foundation in support of the bighorn sheep program. The Nebraska Big Game Society also was recognized for its donation to the Commission for big game conservation.

From the Field to the Stage – Easton Arrows Deliver

Salt Lake City, UT- The new Easton 4mm Axis Long Range blurs the lines between hunting and target arrows, delivering ultra-micro diameter and high speed to help beat the wind with laser-like trajectories, and the development of these arrows points right back to Easton’s long standing target archery dominance.

Easton Arrows were the choice of every single medalist at the recently concluded Tokyo Olympic Games, winning all 30 available medals. Easton was the choice of 126 of the 128 archers competing at the Olympics. The Easton X10 has been in the quiver for every single medal awarded at the Olympics since 1996 – an unparalleled winning streak. 

Three-time Olympic Medalist Brady Ellison of Team USA is truly a bowhunter who moonlights as the World’s #1 ranked target archer. The multi-time World Champion is just as likely to be seen at the USA Olympic Training Center with his hunting compound in his hands as he is his Olympic Recurve.  Fortunately for Brady, the World Cup season with Team USA winds down just as hunting season is heating up.

The Easton X10 arrows that Brady uses to for the Olympics are made in the USA in Easton’s Salt Lake City, Utah factory. The Easton 4mm Axis Long Range that Brady uses to hunt giant Coues deer in his home state of Arizona is made in the same factory in the next room over.

Hunting arrows and target arrows share similar importance in their respective arenas. The arrow is the terminal projectile for the hunter and the scoring projectile for the target archer. Despite having different intentions, they are both the single most important piece of equipment an archer carries.  Easton hunting arrows carry the precision craftsmanship taken from decades of Olympic and target archery dominance and put it in a package with the strength needed to deliver in the field.

RCBS® ChargeMaster™ Link with Bluetooth® Delivers Hands-Free Reloading

RCBS®, the leading manufacturer of ammunition reloading equipment for rifles and pistols, has announced the introduction of the new ChargeMaster Link powder dispenser. The Link is built off the rock-solid load cell and electronics found in the popular RCBS ChargeMaster Lite, but now offers best-in-class Bluetooth®  technology to make reloading easier than ever.

The RCBS ChargeMaster Link’s Bluetooth capabilities give the discerning hand-loader the ability to run the entire unit from their smartphone using the free, newly redesigned RCBS app. This not only allows a user to save custom loads on the app, but to run the machine more quickly and efficiently. Hands-free operation with the app also means a reloader never has to touch the dispenser during the weighing process, ensuring more accurate readings.

“The Link is the perfect dispenser for the budget conscious handloader that is looking for a dispenser that is going to deliver consistent powder charges each and every time but does not need all of the additional features that our other models provide,” said Will Hemeyer, Sr. Product Manager for RCBS. “We take great pride in producing the highest quality dispensers on the market and know the ChargeMaster Link will deliver more consistency than the competition.”

The ChargeMaster Link boasts 0.1-grain accuracy and a 2000-grain load cell capacity. The unit can run on an external battery, meaning reloaders can operate it at home or in the field without being tied to power cords. The unit also features a universal four country CE approved power supply and LCD display with intuitive push-button controls.

ChargeMaster Link has an MSRP of $349.95. For more information or to view other RCBS reloading products, visit

EOTECH’s Aggressive Pursuit to Confront Counterfeit Sales

Counterfeiting impacts everyone! EOTECH®, the world-leading holographic weapons sight manufacturer, is fighting back against counterfeiting rings at all levels. They have launched an aggressive campaign targeting those who create and sell illegal copies of EOTECH’s iconic military-grade holographic weapons sight systems.

EOTECH takes counterfeit prevention extremely seriously. Why? Because not only do these forgeries impact their business—and the business of their authorized dealers—but more importantly operators’ safety. 

“Stopping fakes at the source is a critical step in curbing counterfeiting. EOTECH produces an extremely rugged, technically unique holographic sight that can’t be duplicated by counterfeiters. The EOTECH brand stands for reliability, durability and the safety of our operators whether it be soldiers, officers or general users,” said Lisa Kemp, Director of Marketing. “EOTECH partners and end-users can rest assured that we will actively pursue counterfeit operations to quickly shut them down.” 

Authentic EOTECH holographic sighting technology is nearly impossible to replicate. Unfortunately, numerous imitation EOTECH products have been discovered, including LED-based products attempting to pass as high-tech holographic sights. One such counterfeit reseller is JC Airsoft, which sold fake EOTECH HWS products for deep discounts. With cooperation from the Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), EOTECH fought to shut down this activity. Through these efforts, EOTECH reached a 6-figure settlement with JC Airsoft for various HWS counterfeit violations. 

An explosion of online sales links with reproduction HWS products adds to consumer confusion. Shoppers are lured to these online stores by their shockingly low prices. EOTECH closely monitors online sales and blocks unauthorized items, from websites such as Alibaba, Aliexpress, Amazon, Facebook, eBay, and other online outlets.

Safari Club International Supports Sustainable Predator Management in North America

Safari Club International (SCI) and Safari Club International Foundation (SCIF) are proud to announce their official support of sustainable predator management in North America, management which plays an essential role in the North American Model of Wildlife Conservation. 

SCI and SCIF adopted this position following extensive support for research on the dynamics between large carnivores and their prey, and SCI’s involvement in numerous lawsuits and legislation on predator issues. These issues revolved around state and federal species recovery efforts, delisting decisions for predators, states’ authority to manage wildlife, and the American freedom to hunt. 

SCI and SCIF have adopted a position on this issue given the significant public interest and attention predators and their management garners. Unfortunately, much of that attention is the source of widespread misinformation about a subject of real importance to hunters and conservationists. As government bodies worldwide take an increasingly active approach to restricting hunting, it is more important than ever that SCI and SCIF convey the truth about hunting both prey and predator species. 

“SCI, SCIF and those invested in the management of North America’s wildlife believe the successful recovery of predator species should be celebrated but also that these species should be managed responsibly, by states and tribes, to attain overall wildlife management and habitat protection objectives,” said SCI and SCIF CEO W. Laird Hamberlin. 

SCI and SCIF fully support state management decisions that include legal, regulated hunting of predators, including the hunting of large carnivore species such as wolves, grizzly bears, black bears, mountain lions and coyotes.

Duck Slam returns to challenge Nebraska waterfowl hunters

LINCOLN, Neb. – You love it: being in the blind, setting up the spread, turning a flock, watching them cup, taking the shot and seeing a great retrieve. Duck hunting is time well spent.

The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission and Ducks Unlimited are proud to bring back the popular Nebraska Duck Slam, a challenge for duck hunters to take advantage of Nebraska’s great duck hunting opportunities.

The Duck Slam challenges hunters to harvest a teal (blue-winged or green-winged) of either sex, as well as drakes of three other species: an American wigeon, a mallard and a northern pintail. All ducks must be harvested in Nebraska, and hunters must upload a photo of each harvest at

Those who successfully complete the slam will receive an official certificate, a Duck Slam pin and Central Flyway bragging rights. Additionally, all hunters who complete the Slam during the 2021-2022 season will be registered to win one of several great prizes generously donated by Ducks Unlimited. A drawing for the grand prize, a Special Edition Ducks Unlimited Franchi Elite 20-gauge shotgun, will take place next February.

The Duck Slam officially opens on Sept. 4, the first day of early teal season, and runs through Jan. 26, 2022, when duck and coot season ends in zones 2 and 3. Season dates vary by species and zones.

Junior Haley Robinson Claims Three New Records at 2021 National Rifle Matches

Haley Robinson, 21, of Mill Spring, North Carolina, set not one, not two, but three new national records during the 2021 National Rifle Matches. The annual event was conducted by the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) and held in August on the grounds of the historic Camp Perry National Guard Training Facility, where it has been set for over a century.

Robinson’s record performances began with the President’s Rifle event, where she fired a score of 395-15X to earn new High Junior and High Woman records – finishing seventh overall. She was also the only junior to appear in the 20-person shootoff that accompanies the President’s Match.

Since 2018, Robinson has had a goal of earning a place in the Top 20 shootoff.

“The first day, I did pretty decent, and it just stuck,” she said of her President’s showing.

Back in 2018 (only her second trip to the National Matches) she gave herself an objective to reach the Top 20 shootoff. She inched close in 2019, reaching the President’s Hundred (as one of the Top 100 competitors) in 46th place overall and earning a coveted President’s Tab. She had hoped to climb her way into the shootoff the following year, but, with the cancellation of the 2020 National Matches, she wasn’t given the chance.

“This year (2021), I made it my goal, and I practiced hard before we left,” Robinson said. “I was nervous – very nervous – but once I got up there, after the first shot, I was calm.”

Yamaha Outdoor Access Initiative and Recreate Responsibly Coalition Partner to Ensure Access to Public Lands for Outdoor Recreation

Collaborative Awareness Campaign Hits on the Need for Stewardship Among Public Land Visitors, Providing Support for Projects via the Yamaha Outdoor Access Initiative

Yamaha Motor Corp., USA, today announces the Yamaha Outdoor Access Initiative (OAI) and the Recreate Responsibly Coalition (RRC) established a strategic partnership to spread awareness of the need for land stewardship among all types of visitors to public lands. By promoting responsible recreation practices and the safe and sustainable use of trails, the partnership works to further the aligned missions of both organizations. A priority for the collaboration is to increase awareness of the availability of funding and support for public land access projects through the Yamaha OAI. As the Powersports industry’s leading land-access program, the Yamaha OAI remains an essential resource to  grassroots efforts of riding clubs, land stewardship organizations, and public land managers across the country.

The pandemic made getting outdoors a priority for more people than ever before, putting pressure on the maintenance of public land to ensure everyone’s safety. Without action, public lands can become unsustainable, and access limited. The Yamaha OAI and Recreate Responsibly believe everyone has a responsibility to sustain the outdoor spaces we enjoy and can contribute by understanding their potential impacts in natural spaces and surrounding  communities.

“Public lands are America’s gateway to fun and adventure in the great outdoors. Visitors play an important role in their protection and preservation. Recreate Responsibly and the Yamaha Outdoor Access Initiative are working  together to educate and raise awareness of responsible use of trails and open spaces for motorized and outdoor recreation,” said Steve Nessl, Yamaha’s Motorsports marketing manager. “The Yamaha Outdoor Access Initiative was created specifically to help those who see the need to protect or expand access to public land and need some support to get it done. By working with Recreate Responsibly, we hope more people take advantage of our resources by applying for a grant.”

Part of the collaborative effort will raise funds for the Recreate Responsibly Coalition to bolster its focus on safe, accessible, inclusive, and responsible outdoor recreation. People posting pictures to social media platforms featuring their visits to public lands can simply tag @Recreate.Responsibly and @YamahaOutdoors on Instagram or @RecreateInfo and @YamahaOutdoors on Twitter, and the Yamaha Outdoor Access Initiative will donate $5, up to $50,000, to RRC and help maintain  access to the beauty and wonder of nature for everyone.

Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever React to USDA’s Conservation Reserve Program Enrollment Announcement

Reversing CRP trend and filling acreage cap remain priorities of The Habitat Organization

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) today announced the acceptance of 2.8 million acres into the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) so far in 2021. The positive news will help stem the tide of the 3 million acres also set to expire from contract on September 30th. The Habitat Organization remains focused on advocating for additional CRP signup opportunities and increased incentives to assist the nation’s private landowners and agricultural communities in meeting a 27-million-acre program cap by the end of fiscal year 2023. CRP remains the country’s single most effective conservation tool creating wildlife habitat, improving water quality, protecting soil health, ensuring climate resiliency, and safeguarding robust rural economies.

“Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever are thankful to USDA for implementing much-needed administrative changes to CRP earlier this year which made it a viable option again for our nation’s farmers, ranchers and landowners,” said Jim Inglis, Director of Government Affairs for Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever. “But make no mistake about it, a lot more CRP acres are needed to help landowners address resource concerns throughout the country – especially those affecting grassland birds. We look forward to working with USDA officials and Congressional leadership to help be a catalyst for the nation’s leading conservation program.”

Like other USDA conservation programs, CRP is a voluntary program that has a variety of options that can be tailored to the specific conservation issues of a state or region and desires of the landowner. The options run the gamut from working lands such as CRP Grasslands to partnerships with states and private entities to target a specific joint concern such as water quality or quantity, or specific wildlife species such as pheasants or quail.

“Despite Congress raising the enrollment target in the 2018 Farm Bill, there have been decreases in enrollment for the past two years. The changes we made this spring have put us on the path to reverse this trend,” FSA Administrator Zach Ducheneaux said. “Even with the improved direction, USDA will still be about four million acres below the enrollment target. The CRP benefits for producers, sportsmen, wildlife, conservation and climate are numerous and well documented. We cannot afford to let them to be left on the table.”

Florida gun company says they won’t comply with ATF cease-and-desist order

ORLANDO, Fla. – The president of a Florida-based gun company released a recorded statement Friday saying his company will not be complying with a cease-and-desist order issued by the ATF in late July. 

According to the cease-and-desist letter issued on July 26, the ATF alleged that Rare Breed Triggers’s FRT-15 trigger was actually a machine gun, and the agency ordered Rare Breed Triggers to halt production and sales, and create a plan to address the triggers that had already been sold and distributed. 

In the video, Lawrence DeMonico, president of Rare Breed Triggers, says his company will not be complying with the order by the federal agency and lays out his case for why they are choosing to civilly disobey the order. 

According to DeMonico, contrary to the ATF’s allegations, DeMonico says the fact of the matter is that the FRT-15 cannot fire more than one round by a single function of the trigger. That’s important to note, because that is probably the most pertinent portion of the definition of a machine gun as defined by the Gun Control Act and National Firearms Act, DeMonico says. 

Beyond making the case for why they would not be complying, DeMonico says the company immediately responded to the ATF’s cease-and-desist order to inform them that they did not agree with the ATF’s claim. Additionally, DeMonico says they have also followed up by filing a lawsuit in the United States Federal Court for the Middle District of Florida.
