Skinner Sights partnered with Andy Langlois of Andy’s Leather to make these gun slings. The Biothane Super Sling is designed to be used without “keepers” so there isn’t anything to slide or slip around. Redundant solid-brass Chicago screws are used on each end. These slings are adjustable for length, include steel GrovTec QD swivels, and are made in two colors (black or olive) in the USA.

Spyderco Stok Bowie

The Stok Bowie showcases a saber-ground, Bowie-style blade crafted from 8Cr13MoV stainless steel. Its full-tang handle features a refined ergonomic profile that ensures a comfortable, positive grip and superior control during detailed cutting chores. The handle’s shape is complemented by olive drab peel-ply-textured G-10 handle scales and a generous lanyard hole that allows the easy attachment of lanyards and fobs. To balance discreet carry and ready access, the Stok Bowie comes complete with a custom-molded, snap-fit Boltaron sheath with a G-Clip attachment. The G-Clip can be attached to either side of the symmetrical sheath to provide vertical, horizontal, or canted belt carry with the knife in either an edge-forward or edge-back orientation. It also works as a spring clip to carry the knife inside the waistband. A remarkable alternative to the traditional pocketknife, the Stok Bowie will have you rethinking your everyday carry choices.

Black Hills Ammunition 300 PRC 212 Gr. ELD-X

Black Hills is now loading 300 PRC with the Hornady 212 ELD-X hunting bullet. The 212-grain ELD-X is designed to provide an optimum combination of accuracy and game-stopping performance. The bullet has a muzzle velocity of 2850 fps with 3824 ft-lb of energy, has a G1 ballistic coefficient of .663, and a G7 coefficient of .334.
