It's the little things from SENTRY Products Group

We are delighted to welcome SENTRY Products Group to our team here at Women’s Outdoor News. Here’s why.

I just slipped past another decade of life last weekend and the older I get, the more I realize it’s the little things that make a difference, and I’m talking tangible and intangible things.

SENTRY Products Group offers a wide variety of firearm accessories from its range of families – HEXMAG, Scopecoat, Slideboot and Sentry Solutions – under the company’s umbrella. These little things, aka accessories for your firearms, will make your time afield or on the range better for so many reasons. It felt like Christmas as I opened the box SENTRY sent me and went through scope covers, gun covers, Hexmags and more.

Here are descriptions and first reviews of the products from that box, and what I think about them so far, and where you’ll see them soon.

The Armadillo is one in a line of firearm covers offered by SENTRY. Think of these covers as yoga pants for your guns. Available for standard AR-15s, rifles and shotguns, these lightweight, water-resistant covers slip on and off easily, regardless of your configuration of scope, tactical lights, lasers, bipod or sling. You can pop one on your gun for range protection from dust and rain, or have your gun wear it as you transport the gun from here to there. SENTRY made the Armadillo in a softshell material (hence the yoga pants reference) and with a drawstring, so you can cinch the cover down tight on the gun. When not in use, the Armadillo folds to the size of a deck of cards, so it’s easy to store in your range bag, backpack or hunting pack. In Moss Green or Coyote Brown.

This Go Sleeve long gun cover is intended to protect your gun while you transport it, or it can be used as a cover in a safe. If used in a safe, make sure your gun is dry and the cover is dry. Neoprene is not affected by oils, so if you have cleaned the gun, you do not have to worry about residual oil drops in your safe. Made of 3mm-thick, high quality neoprene, the stretchy carry case comes with 2 buckle straps and an adjustable handle. I was concerned that Neoprene would keep the moisture in the case with the gun, but found out that Neoprene is breathable and will draw and expel any residual moisture remaining in the firearm. I will use this Go Sleeve when I head out this spring to complete a Grand Slam on turkeys. Why use a Go Sleeve for this? The final turkey on my list is the elusive phantom Osceola of Florida and I know my shotgun will need protection from bumps and scrapes, as I was turkey hunting in Florida last year. So, bring on the palmetto attacks. The Go Sleeve case will come in handy for storing my shotgun on the way out to the hunt. Go Sleeves are made for standard AR-15s, rifles and shotguns. In Black and Wolf Gray.
