S&W at the C.O.R.E. of this month's fantastic giveaway!


Ever wanted to compete? Well, one plucky winner will be drawn and ready for the range with this Smith & Wesson 9mm M&P9L C.O.R.E. This polymer and stainless steel double-action pistol is based on the popular Pro Series line of competition-ready firearms, but this version of the M&P--the C.O.R.E (Competition Optics Ready Equipment)--offers a specialized platform for adding accessory optics and is engineered to accept six popular styles of competition-based optics. This 8.5-inch, 26-ounce pistol is perfect for competition, yet is just at home when deployed in recreational shooting or home-defense.

What this gun cries out for is an eye-friendly optic and we couldn't find a better choice than a Leupold DeltaPoint reflex sight to help you utilize all the capabilities built in to this pistol!

However you use your new M&P9L C.O.R.E., you'll want to use it with hearing protection. The Howard Leight by Honeywell Impact PRO Electronic Earmuffs give you 350 hours of use from a single pair of AAA batteries, and they offer a Noise Reduction Rating (NRR) of 30.

Maxpedition also generously included three of their high-quality items for you to win. The ZAFAR Internal Frame Backpack has a polypropylene frame with a single aluminum stay, making it a lightweight alternative to the steel-framed rucks of the past. Included is a sunglass pouch, sturdy bottom lock, 100-ounce hydration bladder pouch, padded removable waist belt and much more.

Since more is better, Maxpedition includes the FEROX Folding Knife, a durable everyday cutting tool with a serrated edge...
