New Website is Live!

Designed and built in-house, is the new central, brand-hub for the PenCott® family of camouflage patterns from Hyde Definition Ltd. 

This is the first time that the PenCott® pattern family has had its own dedicated website, and greatly expands and improves upon the PenCott® pattern content that has been previously held on the website.  Among other enhancements, the new site features an in-depth look at the development of the patterns, what makes them so effective and where the name ‘PenCott’ comes from. 

Another key highlight of the new site is the wide-ranging and ever growing gallery of submitted photographs showing the performance of the patterns in-the-field around the world.  There’s even an 
interactive map of the world that lets you select to see photos of the patterns in use by country (and by state in the US).

A useful section of the site for Makers is the page covering the range of different PenCott® pattern fabrics and materials that are now available – as well as links to sources where they can be bought.

Consumers will find the full, up-to-date listing of PenCott® garment and gear producers – with links off to their websites - an invaluable resource for getting kitted up in PenCott®.

Finally, the Blog section of the site will present all of the latest news related to the PenCott® patterns, as well as additional original content relating to the field of camouflage history, design and technologies.

With the launch of the separate site, the legacy site will be 
revamped and refocused to cover the consultancy services and other camouflage projects that Hyde Definition works on.

Check out today – and also don’t forget to follow PenCottCamo on Facebook and 
Instagram too.

Carnik Con Knows Its Daewoo

At first I thought this was a PBS special on Daewoo until I realized they wouldn't hire some scraggly looking hipster host and then there were guns. All in all this is an interesting educational piece on Korean weaponry. More interesting however is who took part as the sunscreen specialist. Enjoy!

Bulletproof Laptop Bag Life-Saving Shield

Most laptop bags are not much more than a pocket with a strap attached for people to tote more gear around than they can carry in their hands. Not any more. The new MTS™ - Multi Threat Shield (MTS) bag looks like an average black laptop bag, but not only can it carry gear it can also save lives. Built into the MTS™ is a lightweight and discreet ballistic shield. Whether the threat is an intruder or an active shooter, a quick flick of the wrist swiftly deploys a 3-foot long blanket of protection to defeat multiple impacts from most handgun, shotgun and pistol caliber sub-­machine gun threats. 

In the event of a physical attack, families, schools, law enforcement, first responders, hospitals, businesses and private security personnel can use the MTS™ to protect one or more people. The MTS' primary design is protection against threats from firearms. However, the MTS™ is a true multi-threat shield, offering protection from attacks with blunt objects and edged weapons, as well as punches and kicks. The MTS™ is certified NIJ Level IIIA (Level III with optional Rifle Plate Insert). 

The MTS™ was tested by a National Institute of Justice approved laboratory for ballistic resistance in accordance with Modified/Abbreviated NIJ 0108.01, Threat Level IIIA. The results were “No Penetration,” and the MTS™ will not fold or bend when shot. The MTS™ is designed for everyday carry. To enhance its practicality, it includes an expandable utility pouch with covert access, which offers the ability to carry a wide range of equipment and accessories - from a handgun or Taser to a laptop or tablet. The MTS™ measures 12 by 17.5 inches when closed. When the shield is unfurled, the MTS can protect an area that is 36.5 by 17.5 inches, with a total ballistic coverage of 639 sq. in. The MTS is a one-piece seamless design that weighs only eight pounds with a military spec webbing strap and 360 degree rotating attachment clips. 

The MTS™ has a retail price of $899. For more information and purchasing, visit:

The Remington Great Americans Shoot 2015

ROSHARON, TX   (June 23, 2015)-  The Remington Great Americans Shoot (RGAS15) “The Most Money Ever Raised with Guns,” returns to Rosharon, TX September 26th benefitting the Special Forces Charitable Trust and other military non profits.  It’s not about guns or even about the shooting competition:  it’s aboutreal people raising money, all of which goes directly to organizations that directly serve our nation’s Special Ops community.
RGAS14 broke all known charitable shoot records, netting $1.2 million, a milestone organizers aim to shatter this year.  RGAS15 is hosted by the Special Forces Charitable Trust (SFCT), which provides meaningful and sustainable support for the Special Operations Community and their Families.

The founder and Chair of the Remington Great Americans Shoot is Texan entrepreneur and philanthropist Mike Reynolds. “The original idea was to find a way to allow normal citizens the opportunity to sit with some of these truly amazing men and women and say more than just a thank you.  It’s a chance for us to put our arms around someone who has been to battle for this country, whose family has given so much, and say how much we appreciate the security youbring to my family’s life.”
The Remington Great Americans Shoot is a one-of-a-kind format. Twenty teams of five shooters choose a military charity and raise a minimum of $50,000.  Half of the proceeds go to the Special Forces Charitable Trust; the remainder is split among designated charities of the top five fundraising teams.  Other designated military non profits include The Marine Corps Association Foundation and Lone Star Veterans Association.  Another team is shooting on behalf of the Special Forces Charitable Trust.
Returning for RGAS 15 are 84 year old Laura Berry of “Lady Laura and the Hot Smokin’ BB’s,” Ron McCan of “Disk Dusters” and Sara Walker of “The Quiet Professionals.” Lending his support again is Mark Owen, former Navy SEAL and bestselling author of “No Easy Day” and his latest book, “No Hero.”
Each team also includes a “6th Man” from within the Special Operations Community, who joins the shooting competition as an honorary team member.
Top shooting teams compete for amazing prizes including: R-4 Remington Gas Piston Carbine,  Remington XM2010 Sniper Rifle System, a Remington 1100 American Classic 12G and various other Remington firearms and products. 
The Special Forces Charitable Trust and Remington invite you to donate and say “thanks.”  After all, we are just “Great Americans doing Great Things for Great Americans!”  Donors of $100 or more receive a special Challenge Coin from the Special Forces Charitable Trust.
