The FrogLube 2-Product System has Flawless performance on all the competition guns for the second year running.
FrogLube degreasing solvents and lubricants were used to prepare and maintain hundreds of firearms during the three days of intense competition in 12 match stages and 5 side match stages. “We only use FrogLube and that’s what we trust.” commented Cole McCulloch, owner, Peacemaker National Training Center. “When we need guns to run, we call on the FrogLube Team and they made it happen for us.” Match Director, Tom Pohulski.
“Happiness is a FrogLube treated gun”, says Larry Lasky,owner and founder of FrogLube brands. “Our victory is when hundreds of professional and amateur competitors and hundreds of guns all come together during intense competition and their focus is on individual competitor talent and gun performance, not gun lube.”
The FrogLube shooting team returned in 2015 with distinction. Kelli Sampel, Jamie Franks and Tyler Renville logged scores in the top tier of all competitors and took home some nice prizes. “I could not be more proud of our team’s performance,” said Lasky, “ this lady and these gentlemen are superbly talented, but more importantly, they are passionate, gracious and honorable stewards of our sport and representatives of our brands.” Kelli, Jamie and Tyler attribute part of their successful rise in the sport to the qualitative advantage they achieve from using the FrogLube system in their firearms.

14 Years Ago Today I was driving to my PT (Physical Training) formation on Fort Lewis in Washington State. I had listened to the radio on my way into work every day. Every day but this day. On September 10, 2001, I had installed a new CD player in my older car and was enjoying some music on my way into work. It was a typical Washington September day. The sun was out with a slight chill to the air and everything was primed for a “good day”.
That suddenly came to a screeching halt as I walked up to my company’s barracks as I went to check in on my soldiers. There was a heavy sense of panic going on when one of my soldiers frantically came up to me and said; “Sergeant, PT has been cancelled, get to the IOF.” Still not hearing the news, I asked my soldier what was going on. He said; “We are under attack on the east coast.”
Without getting into the nuts and bolts of what my job at the time entailed, we’ll leave it that I was in the Intelligence field. Yes, I know, Military Intelligence is an oxymoron. I have heard it all. My heart was set on being an 11B, but my brother, who was one, made me promise to avoid that route. I had to honor my big brothers request, so I opted for what I felt was a promising route for post-military life.
Almost everything that we had focused on at the time was linear military v. military formations where lines were drawn in the proverbial sand and each side wore a specific uniform. Though the asymmetric warfare that was about to come was not a new concept for US forces, it was not the norm, especially for my unit, which had prepared for threats in the Pacific region.
During the next few months a lot had changed. America was at war in Afghanistan and the military was buzzing with transformations. I was stop-lossed for the first of two times in October 2001 and the end game for this fight was nowhere in sight.
Emotional may not be the best word to describe every time I hear or see a recap of the events of this day. Emotional, maybe in the sense that I get pissed off. Pissed off that someone had the gall to come to our front door and mess with my family. I swore two oaths of office and have spent the past 17+ years protecting and serving those who I have sworn to protect. It becomes personal when someone gets in the way of your duties and though there was noting personally that I could have done that day, you still feel like you have somehow failed.
Though the atrocities of September 11, 2001 scarred this great land, it did, at least for a short while, do something for our country that has since fleeted away. A sense of Patriotism. American flags were flown proudly everywhere. Soldiers and First Resonders were thanked and deemed heroes. People were proud to support the Troops, Fire Fighters and Police Officers. The American people had realized their vulnerabilities and appreciated their safety net.
So I have to ask; “What happened?” Where has all of the support gone? Have Americans become tired of supporting? Has the country been so blinded by the mainstream media’s arrogant agenda that we have forgotten what happened 14 Years Ago Today unless they want you to remember once a year for ratings? Is there so much hatred of our fellow countrymen that the terrorists do not have to attack us at home anymore because we are doing it ourselves? I love this country, I always have and I always will. I am however, embarrassed and disgusted with how My Fellow Americans are acting.
Regardless of Race, Religion, Age, Gender, Sexual Preference or Political Beliefs, it is time that we need to STAND UP UNITED on our own accord before it takes another Emotionally Significant Event like 9/11 to force us to.
I’ll leave you with the song that my Basic Training Drill Sergeants had us wake up to every single morning. We need more of this today, now more than ever.
The following is a press release from Cobalt Kinetics regarding the launch of their new Digital Store and some newly offered AR‘s.
Cobalt Kinetics today launched its digital store and is now offering the critically-acclaimed B.A.M.F. and B.A.M.F. Edge AR-15 platform rifles for immediate purchase through CobaltKinetics.com.
St. George, UT (PRWEB) September 09, 2015
Cobalt Kinetics, an American firearms manufacturer based in St. George, Utah, today launched the Cobalt Kinetics digital store and is now offering the critically-acclaimed B.A.M.F. and B.A.M.F. Edge AR-15 platform rifles for immediate purchase through http://www.cobaltkinetics.com.
“Today, after a long journey in pursuit of perfection and precision, we are excited to launch the Cobalt Kinetics digital store and announce that the B.A.M.F. and B.A.M.F. Edge are on sale and available for immediate purchase,” said Jeremy Lamb, Marketing and Sales Director of Cobalt Kinetics. “We are looking forward to working with dealers and local F.F.L.s to deliver our B.A.M.F.s and accessories to our growing customer base worldwide.”
Cobalt Kinetics first introduced the B.A.M.F. line of AR-15s at SHOT SHOW 2015 to much industry fanfare and praise. In June 2015 the company initiated the pre-sale for the B.A.M.F. and B.A.M.F. Edge and were met with an overwhelming response from gun enthusiasts and industry experts alike. Today, the guns are available for immediate purchase online, exclusively through CobaltKinetics.com.
“If you find yourself wanting to have an AR that stands out in a sea of Black Rifles, you might want to check out Cobalt Kinetics,” wrote AR15News.com July 22, 2015 in a post titled, A Look at the Head Turning ARs of Cobalt Kinetics. “They have some extremely unique AR’s with very cool lines and even a new feature or two.”
Following a range test of the B.A.M.F., Tom Rader of The FireArms Blog wrote, “…the pure design aesthetics are amazing, from the cleanly beveled edges to the clean laser-cut markings. The B.A.M.F. Edge maintains an aggressive look while retaining ergonomic modifications that are subtle and, most definitely, functional.”
The B.A.M.F. is designed to deliver unprecedented form, function and performance while also respecting the time-honored AR-15 platform. The B.A.M.F.’s custom-made parts are machined from aircraft-grade 7075-T6-billet aluminum to ultra-precise tolerances, making the gun strong and versatile, yet tight and stable. A beveled magazine well allows for faster, smoother reloading in critical situations. Threaded pins enable faster and easier breakdown and assembly.
Cobalt Kinetics’s dual bolt release transforms the traditional forward assist button into a single-handed operation that allows the shooter to drop the bolt from both sides of the upper receiver. For the first time in an AR-15 platform, the shooter can release the bolt and pull the trigger almost simultaneously. The dual bolt release saves critical seconds on reloads, minimizes sight time off the target and enables faster, more precise shooting, especially in high adrenaline situations.
Following is Cobalt Kinetic’s AR-15 Specifications:
Caliber: 223 Wylde
Controls: Ambidextrous, 45 Degree Safety Selector, Dual Drop Bolt Release, Extended Mag Release, Left and Right Mag Release, Left and Right Charging Handle, Threaded Pins
American firearms manufacturer, Cobalt Kinetics, based in St. George, Utah, started with a single mission to re-imagine and remake one of America’s most revered and popular guns: the AR-15 platform rifle. Cobalt Kinetics premiered the B.A.M.F. featuring exciting advancements, elegant lines, and precision beyond industry standards at Shot Show 2015 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The company has a patent-pending for B.A.M.F.’s dual bolt release technology.
