New Glock Tool Kit and Magnetic Patch from Fix It Sticks

Fix It Sticks, the industry innovator of modular firearms maintenance tools and torque limiters has introduced a Glock Tool Kit and Magnetic Patch. Both these new items perfectly integrate with the Fix It Sticks tool system as well as perform as stand-alone products.

The Glock Tool Kit has the quintessential tools for disassembly and reassembly of Glock handguns, including a Front Sight Tool and 3/32” Pin Punch. The Glock Front Sight Tool is a 3/16″ hex driver with thin walls to access the fastener. An integrated magnet holds the front sight screw securely in place. The Pin Punch is easy to use and sized so the Glock takedown pins can be removed and reinstalled by hand. Both tools are machined from solid bar stock and work with the Fix It Sticks or any standard ¼” bit driver.

The magnetic patch is a great addition to any tool kit. Designed to keep track of bit and fasteners, it can be used while attached to the Fix It Sticks case by Velcro or flipped over and used by itself as a tray. Simply place bits and screws on the patch and the magnet securely holds the in place until they are needed. Patches can be attached to the Velcro front side of the patch as well.

Both the Glock Tool Kit and Magnetic Pouch are designed for use out in the field but are perfect on the bench as well. Both products are now available. The Glock Tool Kit has an MSRP of $16.00 and the Magnetic Patch as an MSRP of $10.00

NSSF and Walker’s Work to Mentor the Next Generation of Hunters and Shooters

The National Shooting Sports Foundation® (NSSF®) and Walker’s have launched a mentor initiative that encourages experienced target shooters and hunters to invite new individuals to the range or field. The campaign is part of NSSF’s Mentor Pledge initiative developed to facilitate growth of the shooting sports community through education, safety and fun.

As an incentive, NSSF and Walker’s are providing free Razor Ear Muffs (valued at $69.99) to the first 2,000 mentors. Participants must sign a pledge online and share a photo or short video of their experience with a new hunter or shooter in order to claim their reward.

“We are thrilled to play a part in supporting the next generation of hunters and shooters,” said Ben Smith, Vice President of Sales & Marketing at Walker’s. “This partnership with NSSF is the perfect opportunity for our company to give back to the shooting sports community.”

“Research shows that 24 million American’s have an interest getting started hunting or target shooting and that Being invited by a friend or family member is by far the best way to get new folks to the range or field,” said Jim Curcuruto, Director of Research & Market Development at NSSF. “This program aligns with NSSF programs such as National Shooting Sports Month and First Shots that provide introductions to the shooting sports.”

The Webb County Sheriff is responsible for patrol duties, the county jail, and security of the courts. Additionally, the Sheriff’s Office operates an aviation unit and mental health unit. Webb County is the sixth largest county in the state, located in South Texas and includes the border community of Laredo, Texas.

The superior ergonomics, ease of use, and the excellent trigger action of the P320 has resulted in some of the highest qualifying scores from our personnel,” began Sheriff Martin Cuellar, Webb County Sheriff. “The P320 is built with features the skilled shooter appreciates, and features that the shooter with less enthusiasm about firearms utilizes, without even knowing the features are there. Our personnel are adapting to this pistol faster than anything I have seen, and we are extremely pleased with the training and support provided by SIG SAUER.”

The P320 pistol is a modular, striker-fired pistol available in full-size, carry, compact, and subcompact sizing. The serialized trigger group makes the P320 adaptable to multiple caliber, size, and grip options.

The intuitive 3-point takedown requires no trigger pull for disassembly, and safety features include a striker safety, disconnect safety, and optional manual safety.
