Pack'n Heat Chrome Earmuffs

Pack’N Heat Chrome Earmuffs
This female founded and operated company has a mission to empower women by fully embracing feminine fabulousness in the shooting sports. Pack’N Heat’s high-quality chrome earmuffs allow women shooting enthusiasts to be loud and proud about their style while staying protected at the range. The low-profile ear cups and comfortable headband prove that these earmuffs were designed by women for women. The ear protection includes an audio input jack, natural sound clarity and a Noise Reduction Rating (NRR) of 23 decibels. You only get one set of ears, so remember to always protect them … in style.

BioAmmo Blue Shotshells
BioAmmo prides itself on sustainable shotshells. The cases and wads are made of a patented, vegetable biopolymer that is fully bio-compostable. You can either burry the used hulls and wads or toss them on your compost pile. It’ll take about two years for the cases and wads to biodegrade compared to an estimated 450 years for conventional plastics. BioAmmo isn’t stopping there; new for 2022 is BioAmmo Blue for hunting. These bio-compostable blue cartridges are filled with alloy-based pellets instead of lead or steel. Suitable for use in all shotguns, they have almost the same density, hardness, lethality and penetration as lead, but the hulls are ready for the compost heap when you are done with a day afield. BioAmmo Blue just may be the sustainable shotshells for your next scattergun adventure. ​

This safe was meant to travel and get dirty. The rugged polymer was drop tested to ensure a shell that shields and protects your items from the elements and impact. Even the latches are impact resistant for an airtight seal and added security. Now TSA compliant and full-size, LifePod 2.0 is perfect for storing and transporting your firearms. Pistols under 9.25” in length can fit inside so that you and your firearms are secure wherever you go!
