Operator Series Of Backpacks From Tactical Tailor ‘Fit Most Any Activity’

Tactical Tailor is known for designing and manufacturing high-quality American- made tactical gear for the military and law enforcement communities. What many may not be aware of is that many of their products are also ideal for camping, shooting and many other outdoor sporting activities.

Aside from tactical vests and modular pouches, Tactical Tailor offers a full line of backpacks in various sizes to cover most any activity. Their most popular line of packs, the Operator Series, covers everyday carry all the way to a multi-day trip to the outdoors.

The Urban Operator is a discreet everyday carry pack, complete with a zippered laptop compartment, ideal for school, the office or a day of hiking.

The Modular Operator is a step up and compares to a traditional ‘Three Day Pack’ in size and features. It can also be used as a daily carry pack, but has plenty of room for a stay outdoors.

The largest pack in the Operator line, the Extended Range Operator, is perfect for long backpacking trips or multiple days in the field. It features a large compartment for everything you might need and a built-in frame for support.

Finally, the Removable Operator is a small lightweight pack that can be worn alone with its hidden straps or attached directly to larger packs like the Extended Range Operator when a little bit more space is needed.

Tactical Tailor offers a 30-day return policy, as well as a lifetime limited warranty covering materials and workmanship. Check out their full line of American-made products at

Triggers Gun Auction Sells, Is Looking For Quality Firearms

Triggers Gun Auction sells firearms from estates and private sellers to a nationwide audience of pre-qualified gun buyers. As a Federally licensed firearms auction house, we can manage the sale and disposition of auction items from receipt of consignment all the way through to delivery.

Our public sales on the nation’s largest live and timed auction network ( effectively eliminates nuisance bidding (bidding without the intent to purchase), and the burden of wading through thousands of auto-relisted, initial-high-price items.


The majority of our auctions are absolute. But whenever an item of distinction merits reserve pricing, we always start at the reserve. Our monthly schedule of new auctions is designed to keep things interesting for buyers, and speed things along for our sellers (many of whom are trying to close estates).

Consignments Wanted

We are always looking for quality firearms, and firearms-related items to represent at auction. Our team is equipped to sell entire collections or individual items, and we work equally hard for estates and private collectors to maximize profit.

If you or someone you know has antique or modern firearms, or firearms related items to sell, we would appreciate an opportunity to provide a FREE estimate of auction value and discuss seller consignment terms. We’ve created a convenient online evaluation request form to make contacting us easy.

Lopi Introduces the GreenStart Wood Stove Igniter

Starting your wood stove has never been easier, as Lopi has revolutionized the way consumers today start wood fires. Much like Charles Kettering’s invention of the electric automobile ignition 100 years ago, the GreenStart igniter system has evolved the ignition of fire in a spectacular way and has become the greatest innovation in wood heating in over 100 years.

Starting a fire in your wood stove is now as convenient as pushing a button. No longer is the mess of starting a fire with matches and newspapers a concern, as it has been eliminated entirely by this breakthrough new igniter system. Fireplace safety has increased, and there is no longer a need to leave doors ajar to promote the fire start up.

The GreenStart system works much like a blacksmith bellows. A compressor forces 1,400 degree preheated air into the firebox directly onto the wood source, giving a clean, fast, smoke-free start up. This combination of the igniter and bellows is the brilliance of this design exclusively patented by Lopi manufacturer Travis Industries. This system is also ideal for refreshing old fires. Simply add new fuel on top of the old coals, close the door and push the button again. The new GreenStart system instantly elevates combustion temperatures within your stove, immediately establishes a draft, and eliminates the slow and smoky typical wood fireplace start up. The GreenStart Igniter system will start wood burning within two button pushes. After the initial start up, the blower will continue pumping air into the fire, greatly accelerating the start up time. After 15 minutes the blower shuts off. For best results, dry, seasoned wood is required when using the GreenStart system.

The GreenStart ignition option is available on select Lopi wood stoves and wood burning fireplace inserts, and retails for a suggested MSRP of $349. Never before has starting a fire in a wood stove or insert been so simple. Come see the revolutionary GreenStart system in action in our showroom. Visit to find a location near you.
