Sig Sauer gives up in Germany

Sig Sauer closes its German location. The pandemic is not the only cause of the withdrawal. The arms manufacturer cannot win large orders beforehand. He sees his international orientation as the reason.

The arms manufacturer Sig Sauer wants to close its German production site in Eckernförde in Schleswig-Holstein at the end of the year. The local location disadvantages did not allow the economical production of sports and government weapons in the future, the company said. The works council and the workforce had already been informed of the economic situation. Accordingly, 120 employees lose their jobs.

The company pointed out that German legislation is increasingly restricting the use of sporting weapons. “A few local producers are preferred by both the German police and the Bundeswehr when it comes to awarding government contracts.” Sig Sauer was systematically excluded from the tenders because of the company’s international orientation. Most of the company’s developments came from the United States. Managing director Tim Castagne told the “Bild” newspaper that Sig Sauer had not been able to prevail against the competition on large orders, for example for the new Bundeswehr assault rifle. Sig Sauer rejected media reports that the company was broke.

According to the company, the shareholders have made major financial contributions to stabilize the company in recent years. There were also drastic austerity measures to secure jobs in Germany. “In addition to the existing problems, there are the current effects of the Corona crisis, which have an additional economic impact on the continuation of business in Eckernförde.”

Since 2000, Sig Sauer GmbH & Co.KG in Eckernförde has belonged to L&O Holding in Emsdetten (North Rhine-Westphalia), which also includes the US sister Sig Sauer Inc. in Newington (US state of New Hampshire) and the Swiss arms in Neuhausen belong.

BEIJING (AP) — A school security guard injured at least 39 people in a knife attack at a kindergarten in southern China on Thursday morning, state media reported. The motive remains unknown.

At least they weren’t hurt by guns.

The attack was an eerie throwback to deadly attacks at schools in China over past years that prompted security upgrades and that authorities have blamed largely on people bearing grudges or who had unidentified mental illnesses. Must be the USA’s fault.

The CCP needs to do something about these knives.

The local government in the Guangxi region’s Cangwu county said 37 students and two adults suffered injuries of varying degrees in the attack.

Chinese state media identified the attacker as a security guard at the school surnamed Li. The suspect had been detained while an investigation was underway, they said.

SilencerCo Salvo Now in an 8” Configuration

West Valley City, UT – The Salvo was the first modular and hearing safe shotgun silencer on the market. The Salvo is now shipping in an 8” configuration. The Salvo is available in 8” and 12” offerings, allowing the end user to customize the Salvo for shooting sports, hunting and home defense.

The Salvo was designed with the various shotgun shooting applications in mind and the desire to reduce not just the sound, but the felt recoil as well. The modular design enables the shooter to add or remove sections to balance the length, weight and sound suppression. Most shotgun shooters utilize a bead or raised sights, the asymmetrical design places the baffle stack beneath the bore to avoid obstructing the shooter’s line of sight or causing the shooter to adjust or modify the sights. The Salvo traps and contains muzzle gas, reducing the felt recoil.

When introduced, this suppressor was offered in the 12” configuration with the ability to adjust the length down to 10”, 8” or 6”. The majority of Salvo shooters utilize the 8” configuration so we are now offering the 8” configuration at a lower price point.

This shotgun suppressor attaches via a choke mount to most commercially available 12-gauge shotguns with barrels threaded for choke systems. This suppressor is rated for wadded-2 3?4” shells in a 10” or longer barrel and wadded-3” shells in a 16” or longer barrel, including buckshot and slugs. The 8” configuration is hearing safe and noticeably reduces the felt recoil.

The user can adjust the length of the Salvo using rod kits.  Rod kits can be purchased to shorten the 12” to 10”, 8” or 6”, you can also shorten the 8” to 6”. 

This product comes with a breech plug and an Echo Spanner Wrench.  Choke mounts and rod kits are sold separately.   Choke mounts are available in improved cylinder, modified, improved modified and full.  The Salvo has an MSRP of $749.  For more information on this model click here.

Antifa Went To The ‘Burbs Last Night

“It ain’t goin’ good at all. They just beat the ever-loving snot out of three or four guys, and it’s goin’ again. God damn, the antifa guys are not doing well here – they’re all getting the shit kicked out of them.”

One of the protesters can be heard shouting “Justice for Floyd” – right before the man filming says “Uh, it’s goin’ bad. The antifa guys are being chased like crazy. Told you Yucaipa ain’t the place to be.”

Unlike the city, certain areas of the country are not having any of those commie’s bullshit.


RICHMOND, Calif. – A 37-year-old Northern California man was arrested on suspicion of killing his 90-year-old grandmother and trying to eat her body Monday afternoon.

Richmond officers responding to a 911 call of a man standing over a woman’s bloody body allegedly found 37-year-old Dwayne Wallick in the act of eating his grandmother, Ruby Wallick, The Mercury News reports. In this case I’m glad it was just cannibalism.

Officers confronted Wallick inside the Club Court home he shared with his grandmother, located in a quiet, residential neighborhood of the city.

A ittke too quiet. quit like a jungle in a cannibal movie..

When officers entered the home Wallick was “digging in her flesh,” according to A Bay City News report. Wallick allegedly ignored orders to stop and officers had to use a stun gun to subdue and arrest him. Sounds like he was hungry!

There is no official cause of death yet for Ruby Wallick.

Dwayne Wallick was taken to a hospital for treatment of unspecified injuries. Police said the motive is not yet known and the possible role drugs may have played in the gruesome incident is still under investigation. Drugs, good job boys.
