    They closed Goss ct. in 98 or 99 as it really was unhealthy, you really didn't miss anything as the range was built as a afterthought to the existing NG armory.

    NEWINGTON, NH – SIG SAUER, Inc. is proud to announce the recent achievement of two significant milestones of the Modular Handgun System (MHS) program; the delivery of the 200,000th MHS pistol manufactured at the SIG SAUER facility in Newington, New Hampshire, and the first month to have MHS pistols simultaneously delivered to all branches of the U.S. Military.

    “These milestones are a testament to SIG’s ability to adapt and succeed amidst the extraordinary circumstances we have faced throughout this pandemic. Our supply chain was challenged, and the strength of our manufacturing systems has proven that we will, without hesitation, continue to outpace the stringent demands of the delivery schedule of the MHS program,” said Ron Cohen, President & CEO, SIG SAUER, Inc. “Throughout this period, our factory operations and our employees have been faced with unimaginable adversity.

    I have a update from a trip by Parro's property today, in the past month it has went from a bare lot to building going up.

    Parro's indoor gun range is making progress. They have the steel framework up and ready for enclosure so the men can work out of the weather soon.

    GRAPHIC WARNING] Woman Shot And Killed At Range Due To Negligence

    For some reason I couldn’t copy and paste the story and video. It is from a weekly email I get from Concealed Nation. It shows a man assisting a women with a jammed gun at an indoor gun range.

    You really need to see it to believe it, maybe a more tech savvy person can post the story and video.

    got it I think

    [GRAPHIC WARNING] Woman Shot And Killed At Range Due To Negligence

    A woman was shot and killed at an indoor range when the person she was with had a negligent discharge while trying to clear the firearm.

    A man and woman were each found suffering from a gunshot wound, and they were taken to a hospital, police said in a news release.

    Tatianna Holt, 36 of Compton, was pronounced dead at the hospital, while Cory Carmichael, 34 of Claremont, was treated and later released, police said.

    via local media
    The below video shows the incident and is graphic. Please proceed with caution. It’s tough to watch, especially knowing what is about to happen.

    Is wasn’t immediately clear if the man was visiting the range with the woman, or if he was an instructor. In either case, he was extremely negligent in his handling of the firearm, and it resulted in a death.

    It is an absolutely inexcusable event, and can always be prevented by common sense, and by following the simple rules of firearm safety.

    If you ever witness such behavior at a range, what would you do? Would you confront and correct the person? Pack up and leave? Chime in below.

    Looks like it screwed this whole post up. The video is still missing, and it also posted in another forum. I’ll learn.

    Republican Lauren Boebert, 33, was elected this month from a conservative western Colorado district after gaining notice as a brash pro-gun activist who straps a Glock pistol to her hip. In an upset last June, she defeated five-term Rep. Scott Tipton for the GOP nomination, in part by claiming he wasn’t an ardent enough backer of President Donald Trump.

    Boebert asked Capitol Police officials about carrying her weapon when she and other House freshmen taking office in January were in town recently for orientation programs, according to two congressional officials. Both people — a Democrat and a Republican — spoke on condition of anonymity to describe her request.

    Aides to Boebert, who Trump endorsed as “a fighter” who will “never bow down to the establishment in Congress,” did not make her available for an interview.

    “This was a private discussion and inquiry about what the rules are, and as a result the Congresswoman-Elect won’t be going on the record,” Boebert aide Laura Carno said in an email last week.

    The inquiries by Boebert, who runs Shooters Grill, come as guns remain a passionate issue for both parties, fueled by images of demonstrations by armed Trump supporters, conservative pushes to ease state gun restrictions and recent years’ mass shootings.

    Even so, prospects for significantly changing federal gun laws seem scant as a new, narrowly divided Congress takes office in January alongside President-elect Joe Biden.

    Speaking of holsters and a new take on holster systems.
    PHLster Holsters’ Enigma Concealment Chassis

    [​IMG]


    PHLster Holsters founder Jon Hauptman caused a splash on social media this past week when he announced his company’s latest product, the Enigma. Quick details from the press release itself:

    Enigma isn’t a holster. Or a belt. Or a belly band. Or any other device you’ve encountered. It’s so different, in fact, it’s in a whole new category of its own. Enigma is the world’s first concealment chassis, giving you unparalleled concealment, stability, and performance. Using high tech materials, it turns your favorite Kydex holster into an ultra-low-profile concealment system that’s completely independent of your clothing.

    Enigma’s chassis means you can train hard, fight hard, and live how you want, with confidence that your gun will stay put. Every part of Enigma was designed with performance in mind. Made from an ultra-light, high-strength woven polymer laminate, the heart of Enigma is the winged faceplate. It stabilizes your gun while adding zero bulk to the front of the holster.

    Train safely with Enigma’s secure retention and stable platform. It stays in place during repeated draw/reholster cycles, thanks to its unobtrusive adjustable leg-leash. And your kydex holster shell stays open, allowing for safe one-handed reholstering.

    While it’s optimized for the PHLster Pro Series, Enigma is modular. It will also fit other AIWB holsters that use a Modwing, Darkwing, Raven Concealment wing, or other IWB concealment wing with a 5/8ths on center hole spacing.

    Enigma is unmatched in concealment and performance.

    We’re all used to hearing advice like, “dress around the gun,” or, “get a better belt,” or, “try a smaller gun” when dealing with the challenges of concealed carry. Bellybands and other alternative carry methods don’t conceal well, aren’t secure, and require constant adjustment.

    Enigma is a no-compromise concealed carry solution. Its 12-point adjustable platform allows you to fine-tune concealment in ways that aren’t possible with conventional carry methods. Once you adjust Enigma for optimum concealment on your unique frame, you simply set-it-and-forget it with the quick-latch Fidlock magnetic buckle. Just click and go.

    From the gym, to the team room, to the board room, Enigma stays put and stays with you.

    * Compatible with non-light-bearing holsters which have a Modwing, Darkwing, RCS Vanguard wing, or other concealment claw/wing with a 5/8ths on center hole spacing below the trigger guard of the holster.

    The frequency with which I’m asked by gun owners — new and seasoned alike — how they’re supposed to carry with their yoga pants, gym shorts, sweats, whatever, is staggering. Up until now there hasn’t been a product I was truly pleased with suggesting because the vast majority of belly bands, corset holsters, and other under-your-activewear type gear do not include quality holsters.



    Cloth pockets, elastic loops, Velcro…all manner of flimsy attachments have been used by manufacturers in the name of simplifying carry. Finally, we have an option with a secure, safe, high-quality holster offering solid retention and placement.

    [​IMG]
    Curious about the Enigma’s roots? Another snippet from the press release:

    Dive deep enough into high-level concealed carry and you’ll find Runcible Works. Known for their experimental and obsessively innovative holster systems, Runcible Works creates bespoke, self-contained concealment systems for carrying in any attire. They combine high tech materials with sophisticated, ergonomic design principles to build deep concealment gear with the lowest possible signature. Runcible Works pioneered the concept of building the belt, holster, and accessory carriers into a single platform that functions in any environment from yoga class to entangled ground-fighting and grappling.

    After years of operating in the same circles, we reached out to Runcible Works to help bring their concepts and expertise out of the mad-science laboratory and to the masses. Together, we developed a streamlined and minimalist execution of their renowned, yet often difficult to obtain, systems.

    For two years, we explored materials, strategies, and executions, going back to the drawing board several times and starting from scratch. Enigma is the result of an intense and relentless collaborative process, the output of which is a unique and unprecedented piece of concealment technology and a patent pending.

    With our final drafts in hand by the summer of 2020, we knew that the Enigma required a special manufacturing partnership. Known for their materials and process expertise and innovation in the tactical equipment space, AXL Advanced was the obvious choice to help us get over the finish line and make the Enigma a reality. Their capability to produce durable, low-profile equipment for hard use applications, using the advanced materials required makes them the ideal candidate for the job.


    As frequently as manufacturers launch “groundbreaking, innovative, game-changing” products that tend to be solutions to non-existent problems, it is a stellar moment to see someone come out with such a solid product. The Enigma truly is the answer to questions gun owners have asked for years.

    Its fantastic design and functionality offer a reasonable method for carrying on your body even when your wardrobe lacks the means to handle a gun belt. Perhaps this will reduce the number of people flat-out not bothering to carry, and wouldn’t it be sweet if this drastically dropped the number of women who think purse carry is A Good Idea?

    Over the years I’ve used different holsters made by PHLster and have always been pleased with their performance. 10/10 would recommend and have done so in multiple publications.

    The Enigma is due to drop for public sale at the end of November with Hauptman teasing a possible Black Friday date for the first sales. MSRP is $95 and doesn’t include the holster itself, but you can buy one of the excellent PHLster Holsters on their website here. You can (and should) also watch their website for the official Engima product drop at the end of this week.
