Modern Spartan Systems Unveils "Spartan Accuracy Oil"

Modern Spartan Systems LLC., manufacturer of today's most technologically advanced firearms cleaners and lubricants, has unveiled Spartan Accuracy Oil, the first offering in a bold new system of products designed to extend the life of your firearms and increase their functionality in terms of Accuracy, Reliability, and Performance.

Bold claims from a new company are nothing new to the shooting industry. MSS backs those claims with proven performance! Visit
and watch as Spartan Accuracy Oil destroys the competition in head-to-head laboratory testing! Spartan Accuracy Oil brings new technology and a completely new outlook to firearms maintenance and optimization.

Friction is the number one enemy inhibiting shooting performance. The traditional battle against friction has been waged using surface oils, which create a slippery wedge between two metal objects. At best, friction is minimally reduced and lasts only for a few shots before high pressures and temperatures carbonize, remove and nullify the lubricant. The intended goals are simply short lasting and contribute to the build-up of contaminants inside the firearm, which can ultimately cause malfunctions. Spartan Accuracy Oil from MSS uses a unique technology to defeat friction; thereby improving your accuracy and reducing malfunctions on any weapon system.

The proprietary formula uses Nano Shield™ molecular particles with heat activation to penetrate and fill in pores and gaps in the metal substrate. Effectively, microscopic mountains are reduced to flat plains, minimizing the points of contact. The smoother, harder surface has been shown to reduce friction by up to an astonishing 85-90%. Whether during a hunt, at a competition or in the heat of battle, Spartan Accuracy Oil can make a critical difference to you - the shooter, and an even more critical difference to the target!
Spartan Accuracy Oil - Features and Benefits
• Improved shooting consistency & accuracy (lowers standard deviation and spread rate)
• Fewer malfunctions and more reliable performance
• Reduced gumming of sand and dirt
• Unaffected by temperature (Middle-East highs of 115°+ to Alaskan lows of -52°)
• Environmentally friendly

PETA Says ‘Pay Back is Hell’ to Injured Hunter

After Utah hunter Bradly Greenwood slipped and was gored by an elk he had just shot, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is saying “Payback is hell” through the use of a graphic billboard ad. On September 7, Greenwood was attempting to move his elk when he slipped, falling on the antlers of the elk.  An antler impaled his face and neck, causing Greenwood to struggle to breath, according to Greenwood is recovering in a Utah hospital; however, PETA feels this is the appropriate time to display an image of a large elk with blood dripping from the antlers. The graphic image is partnered with the text: “Payback is Hell. Leave animals alone”. PETA plans to place the ad in Vernal, Utah – the town that was located 30 miles from where Greenwood was injured. - See more at:

Three tickets in a calendar year could result in a misdemeanor for the shopkeeper. The ban will specifically prohibit retailers from selling clothing made with fur, even small items such as gloves, hats, scarves and boots.  Fur trimming on such items will also fall under this ban. This is just the beginning for animal rights activists, as Fur Free West Hollywood is pushing their agenda on other cities. - See more at:

Illinois Supreme Court Rules Section of State Gun Law Violates Constitution

It only seems appropriate on the day feared by Triskaidekaphobians and the Voyager spacecraft finally leaves our solar system to report that the Illinois Supreme Court has issued a pair of rulings expanding gun rights for state residents. In People v. Aguilar, the court tossed the arrest of a man in his friend's yard in Chicago because he was holding a pistol. "if Heller means what it says, the ruling reads, "and "individual self-defense" is indeed the "central component" of the second amendment right to keep and bear arms, then it would would make little sense to restrict that right to the home." That might provide an incentive for the Illinois State Police to maybe move a bit faster on concealed carry licensing. The second ruling in Coram v. Illinois found that a state statute regarding aggravated unlawful use of weapons also violated the Second Amendment.
