STL 1 Tactical Pants – an unbeatable combination of technology and user-friendly features

NRA Propper STL 1 Tactical Pants Merchandise Buyer Joe Garnreiter brings us the latest in tactical pants from Propper and the NRA Store ... -

Fairfax, Virginia - Here at the NRAstore, we’ve seen and tested numerous tactical pants over the years. They’ve become increasingly impressive with each evaluation. So, imagine our surprise when Propper was able to wow us with their STL 1 Tactical Pants – an unbeatable combination of technology and user-friendly features.

For starters, the STL 1’s are comfortable – really comfortable! They’re built from 96% heavy-duty nylon and 4% stretch fabric, which means the STL 1’s move with you – not against you. Match that with a reinforced, diamond-gusseted crotch, and you’ll be amazed at the tremendous range of movement offered by these pants. Speaking of comfort, the STL 1’s also have a water repellent finish to prevent soaking up sweat or water.

Saying goodbye to the programs of the NRA

Lars Dalseide

Fairfax, Virginia - I knew this day would eventually come. The day I’d say goodbye to NRAblog. And it’s with a heavy heart that such a day has arrived. So what does that mean?

That means I won’t be walking the Camp Perry firing lines this summer. That the days of interviewing members at the Annual Meeting, welcoming the latest treasures to the National Firearms Museum, following competitors through Tactical Police Competitions, and snapping shots along the way are over for me. No more early morning airport runs followed by long days searching for stories and late nights fixing photos and writing recaps.

So how tough was it?

Off-duty reserve deputy with Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Department saves untold lives from knife attack

2014 NRA Law Enforcement Officer of the Year Mark Vaughan

Fairfax, Virginia - The National Rifle Association is proud to announce the selection of Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Deputy Mark Vaughan as its 2014 Law Enforcement Officer of the Year.

On September 24, 2014, an employee of a commercial food distributor in Moore, Oklahoma, was suspended for the violation of work rules and harassment of employees. After initially leaving the office, he returned with an 8-inch long serrated knife and crashed his vehicle into a car parked in front of the business. He then entered the main office and attacked Colleen Hufford, the first employee he came upon, and murdered her by decapitation.

Hearing screams from the attack, Mark Vaughan, CEO of the business and an off-duty Reserve Deputy with the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Department, took action. Quickly evaluating the tactical needs of the incident, he retrieved his Patrol Rifle and sought out the suspect.
