Aimpoint, originator and leader in red dot sighting technology, introduces a new line of red dot sights, the ACRO (Advanced Compact Reflex Optic) P-1 Series. The unique small sight design was developed for use with pistols and other weapon platforms.
Users have requested a small, enclosed red dot sight to fit on handguns. The P-1 offers an enclosed system that is more durable than open systems, and it is the only sight in its size category fully tested for shock, vibration, temperature span and other environmental stress.
The P-1 optic adds only negligible size and weight to the equipment and was tested with more than 20,000 rounds on a .40 cal pistol slide, proving its ruggedness and reliability.
While designed for direct integration onto pistol slides, the P-1 sight can also be used as a backup sight for magnifying scopes, personal defense weapons and on any system where a small red dot is applicable.

Rumpl and Nipomo have combined to create new lightweight, technical blankets incorporating traditional woven designs from Tlaxcaka, Mexico, intended to preserve Mexican arts and crafts while providing a high-tech solution for people in the outdoors.
Rumpl, a Portland Ore. outdoor company, developed the design, then Nipomo artisans created an exact woven replica, which Rumpl then printed onto its blanket.
Rumpl also combined with German musician and artist Ingo Pohl for the “Space Oddity” blanket, and painter Kelly Marie for a blanket called “Messy Ever After.”
The blankets are filled with hollow fiber insulation and weigh just 2.1 pounds. They stuff into their sacks easily for storing and packing and are machine-washable and quick drying. Finally, they are water, stain and odor resistant but still durable.
The versatile blankets keep you comfortable no matter where you are and have been tested and proven in harsh environments, yet specifically selected for comfort and durability.
The blankets described here list for $129 and can be seen at rumpl.com.
Winchester has launched Xtended Range versions for its Bismuth shotshells with Shot-Lok technology, resulting in a lead-free product ideal for turkey, waterfowl and upland hunters.
The new product pairs Shot-Lok technology with Bismuth shot, resulting in optimum performance for turkey, waterfowl and upland hunting in areas that require lead-free shot.
With density greater than steel, bismuth offers improved penetration, near that of standard lead loads. Shot-Lok protects the bismuth shot from fracturing, which improves pattern density and increases downrange energy. The Xtended Range Bismuth puts twice the number of pellets into a 20-inch circle at 60 yards than standard lead loads.
Xtended Range Bismuth sell for approximately $35 for a box of 10.
Blakemore will soon be offering Brush Grippers, a new steel solution for hunting, camping or fishing needs that require a good grip.
A few of the many uses are as a brush anchor for duck hunting or fishing, a lantern hanger at a campsite, or with kayaks. Some anglers and duck hunters use Brush Grippers at each end of their boat to provide a stable, no-drift position.
Campers can hang clothes, lanterns or set a lean-to with the Brush Gripper. Kayak users will anchor their yak on the shoreline or use it to hold the yak in place while fishing, or to hold accessories while paddling.
A 10-foot cord is included. The tighter the cord pulls, the tighter the Brush Gripper grips.
Brush Grippers will be available this month in orange, dark green and silver. Go online to ttiblakemore.com after Nov. 15.
How about a cooking oil that contains no gluten, no dairy, no MSC and no peanuts? Yes, it’s genuine bacon grease, from high-quality bacon in John Gordon’s traditional smokehouse process and triple-filtered for purity.

It’s shelf stable for up to two years, so it’s ready when you are. Try it for fried turkey, potatoes, chicken, eggs, biscuits, muffins – and even pan- or deep-fried fish.
The gallon bucket lists for $29.99, and a 16-ounce tub will be coming soon. Check them out at BaconUp.com.
