Trijicon Inc Celebrates

Trijicon, global provider of innovative aiming solutions for the hunting, shooting, military and law enforcement markets, is holding a “40Fest” celebration. It was 40 years ago when a Ford Motor company engineer named Glyn Bindon established Trijicon. From that inquisitive mind came the Bindon Aiming Concept and the legendary ACOG and other products now staples of the military, self-defense and hunting worlds.

To celebrate Glyn Bindon, the company he founded and its loyal customer base, Trijicon is giving away optics, sights and gear valued at more than $50,000.

The celebration begins with Trijicon’s Consumer SWAG giveaway, which began Aug. 23 and runs through Sep. 2. To score Trijicon SWAG, Trijicon’s social media followers will be asked various 1980s and Trijicon trivia questions. Movies, sports, music and television are all included. If it happened in the 1980s, it may well be a trivia question.

Brush up on Trijicon facts and history if you want to increase your chances of winning. How? Start by following Trijicon on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, where Trijicon history will be posted, as well as on Trijicon’s website.

Then comes the Consumer Optics giveaway, Celebrating Trijicon’s 40 years of Innovation, from Sept. 3 to Oct. 1. Simply visit the dedicated Trijicon website each day at and enter to win.

Mossberg 500 and 590: America’s Defensive Shotguns

Review: Smith & Wesson Shield Plus

In retrospect, Smith & Wesson had nobody to blame for the situation but themselves. The company didn’t invent the subcompact, lightweight, single-stack nine, of course. Walther and Beretta had preceded the original Shield to market by a few years with the PPS and the Nano, respectively, and Kahr had more or less created the niche back in the 1990s.
