I met Simon when I first got into shooting about 15 years ago (although ironically at a knife fighting seminar lol) and I will never forget our first trip to the range (back in my balaclava days lol).
Over the years I have watched S&J Hardware grow and it is hard to believe their retail store is almost at its 1 year anniversary and I had not visited it yet! Well I fixed that today and it was great to Simon and team.
BTW, you can also time your visits with a teeth cleaning or root canal lol.
I would say S&J built their reputation among consumers with shotgun parts and builds (more on those later) but behind the scenes, they have served the law enforcement community. They are a major provider of armour. I was super impressed with the VZERO HyperLight Pro Ceramic Armour LIV SAP Ceramic armour that stopped a .308.
One of the inner layers
Multi layer soft armor made of a blend of Kevlar, UHMW PE and Dymema and rated to NIJ-06 Level IIIA and will stop a .44 magnum
Multicam plate carrier
S&J has also expanded significantly into medical and survival gear. I will be taking their Stop the Bleed course in the near future. In the meantime, check out the selection!
Celox hemostatic granules…an incredible product that has several advantages over quick clot…when mixed with blood, it forms a robust gel like clot in 30 seconds… in clinical tests by the U.S. Navy, Celox was the only product to yield 100% survival.
Celox Rapid gauze stops severe arterial bleeding with only one minute of compression applied.
Personal Green IDF Dressing
Combat Application Tourniquet (C-A-T ) and trainer
The “bucket” for lesser quality tourniquets turned in by customers
I picked up a few of the above along with this snazzy ankle rig
Though I am not sure it would be enough if I was on the receiving end of this chopper from Zombie tools
I also picked up some quick cuff trainers! (I love training equipment)
As I said above, S&J is known for firearms parts and builds…their latest accessory is a +1 for .20 gauge
And their latest build is the new Compact Precision Rifle – CPR, combining a Remington 783 action with MDT LSS aluminum chassis…very light
For those looking for a full size rifle, how about this gorgeous PGW with MacMillan A-3 stock
An Ar15 project shelved by the Liberals
The same sad fate for this Knight Armament SR25
For handgun fans, surplus Jerichos, one stock and one with cerakoting by the S&J team
Two Hi Standard .22s
The military version has a more 1911 style grip
Finally, I picked up this nice hat by Grey Ghost Gear
Once again, it was great to see Simon and the team and congrats on the retail store…happy anniversary!
