Trekin Outdoors! is a new outdoor TV Show airing on The Sportsman Channel beginning in January of 2022. The show follows two best friends, Chris Queen and Tyler Leipprandt and their crazy Uncle Steve, all from the great state of Michigan as they travel around the country hunting public and private land, for all kinds of creatures.

"We are thrilled to be co-branded with MAGLITE," said Chris Queen of Trekin Outdoors!.

The Deadliest Days of the Year are Upon Us: 4th of July Holiday Sees Dramatic Spike in Traffic-Related Deaths Every Year

ONTARIO, Calif. -- The deadliest days of the year for traffic related accidents are those surrounding the 4th of July holiday. Every year there is a dramatic spike in pedestrian related deaths and injuries during that time. According to AutoInsurance.Org, Independence Day averages 450 fatal crashes per year. On average 17 pedestrians are killed every day, with 74% of fatal incidents happening at night according to the Pedestrian Safety Institute. In response MAGLITE® and First Responders Children's Foundation (FRCF) are joining together to promote traffic and pedestrian safety awareness.

Pedestrian fatalities spiked in 2021 even though there was less traffic on the roads due to the pandemic. According to PEW, "Pedestrian fatalities grew in 27 states in the first half of 2020." Also, the Governors Highway Safety Association estimates that overall, "the pedestrian death rate rose 20% during that period. Nearly 3,000 pedestrians were killed, even though there was a 16.5% decrease in traffic."

Darkness and low-visibility play a significant role in pedestrian deaths. In fact, more than 70 percent of fatalities happen at night or at dusk or dawn hours. MAGLITE® and First Responders Children's Foundation are on a mission to illuminate the deadliest days of the year and to highlight the dangers of driving in low-visibility conditions to reduce deaths and injuries.

The Centers for Disease Control offer these tips to be safer as a pedestrian at night:

* Carry a flashlight when walking and wear reflective clothing

* Cross streets at designated crosswalks or intersections

* Walk on sidewalk instead of the road or walk on the shoulder facing traffic if a sidewalk or path is not available.

"Carrying a powerful light source will decrease the chance you are struck by a car and injured or killed this coming weekend and the rest of the year," said Anthony Maglica, Founder and Owner of Mag Instrument Inc. "I wish everyone a safe and happy Independence Day!"

Maglite and First Responders Children’s Foundation (FRCF) Partner to Promote Traffic and Pedestrian Safety

ONTARIO, Calif. -- Maglite and First Responders Children's Foundation (FRCF) are joining together to support traffic and pedestrian safety during the deadliest days of the year. According to the Pedestrian Safety Institute, July is the deadliest month of the year for traffic related fatalities including those of pedestrians. The days surrounding July 4th are particularly dangerous.

Darkness and low-visibility play a significant role in pedestrian deaths. In fact, more than 70 percent of fatalities happen at night or at dusk or dawn hours. Maglite and First Responders Children's Foundation are on a mission to illuminate the dangers of driving in low-visibility conditions to reduce deaths and injuries.

Maglite and First Responders Children's Foundation will be raising awareness by distributing press materials and alerting the media about the dangers pedestrians will face in the coming months, while also promoting National Roadside Traffic Safety Awareness Month.

National Roadside Traffic Safety Awareness Month was created by the Pedestrian Safety Institute to draw attention to this deadly time of year. Last year we saw one of the largest increases in vehicular fatalities, despite the significant decline in the number of miles Americans were driving as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

The goal of this program is to increase awareness and urge people to use caution while driving during this particularly perilous time of year.

"There are simple ways to reduce the senseless number of deaths due to pedestrian traffic accidents and that is to carry a bright flashlight, wear reflective clothing and be cautious, especially around fast-moving traffic," said Tony Maglica, Founder and CEO of Mag Instrument, Inc., manufacturer of the Maglite® Flashlight.

Mag Instrument, the USA manufacturer of the MAGLITE Flashlight, Forms Partnership with First Responders Children’s Foundation

ONTARIO, Calif. -- Mag Instrument, the U.S.A. manufacturer of the MAGLITE® Flashlight, has formed a partnership with First Responders Children's Foundation. The initial kick-off of the partnership will be Maglite's sponsorship of the Foundation's annual Fun City Bowl. This is an event in remembrance of 9/11 that pits the New York City Fire Department against the New York City Police Department. Each department fields a football team and they will clash on the gridiron at MetLife Stadium.

Mag Instrument will produce limited edition MAGLITE® flashlights with the FRCF logo, a portion of the proceeds from the sales of these lights will be donated to FRCF in support of their mission. These lights will be available on https://maglite.com/.

"We are very pleased to be starting what I am sure will be a long and beneficial relationship with FRCF," said Anthony Maglica, Founder, Owner and CEO of Mag Instrument Inc. "I was born in New York City and spent many years there and know first-hand the great and heroic work both the NYPD and FDNY do and I hope we are supporting them and their children through FRCF for many years to come."

Sponsoring or attending the Fun City Bowl is a wonderful and personal way to show gratitude to our uniformed heroes and their families and to honor the 20-year commemoration of 9/11. Proceeds will support college scholarships and grants for first responder families who have made the ultimate sacrifice. Proceeds will also support the FDNY and NYPD football teams. Contributions to this event will have a direct and immediate impact on the children whose families have already sacrificed so much.

"We are thrilled to have Maglite join us to salute our first responder heroes," said Jillian Crane, President of the First Responders Children's Foundation. "The children of first responders embody resilience and hope for the future."

Maglite and FRCF will also be collaborating in June and July to promote National Roadside Traffic Safety Awareness Month. July is the deadliest month of the year for traffic related fatalities (including pedestrians). Darkness and low-visibility play a deadly factor in these deaths and Maglite is on a mission to illuminate the danger.

Mag Instrument, the USA manufacturer of the MAGLITE Flashlight, celebrates World Amateur Radio Day by joining forces with ARRL, the national association for Amateur Radio

ONTARIO, Calif. -- In celebration of World Amateur Radio Day on April 18, Maglite and ARRL, the national association for Amateur Radio®, have announced they have formed a partnership based on the common mission of helping people be prepared for emergencies and to serve their communities in extreme situations such as natural disasters.

ARRL member-volunteers provide public service through the ARRL Amateur Radio Emergency Service® (ARES®), and by expanding the reservoir of trained operators and technicians in radio communications and radio technology. Mag Instrument is the leading maker of U.S.-manufactured high-quality flashlights that have a deserved reputation for performance, reliability and durability.

"Amateur radio operators, or 'hams,' help people in times of difficulty, often by supporting emergency communications when critical infrastructure is damaged, and by responding to the needs of first responders to keep connected," said Anthony Maglica, Founder, Owner and CEO of MAG Instrument Inc. "We manufacture a product that has been used in public safety for over 40 years and we are very supportive of the incredible dedication of radio amateurs, so culturally this is a great alliance for both brands."

MAGLITE® is the preferred flashlight brand of many police, fire and other first responder organizations and is the official flashlight of NASAR - the National Association of Search and Rescue. The partnership with ARRL will entail Mag Instrument creating special laser engraved Maglite® product for ARRL as well as offering their members special pricing on a select line of Maglite products, and in turn, those purchases raise funds for ARRL to support their mission.

"ARRL is delighted that Maglite recognizes the service and skill of ARRL members. This partnership will help us introduce amateur radio to more people," says David Minster, NA2AA, ARRL CEO.

ARRL, headquartered in Newington, Connecticut, counts the majority of active radio amateurs in the US among its ranks. Since ARRL's founding in 1914, its members have advanced the art, science, and enjoyment of amateur radio. For more information about ARRL and World Amateur Radio Day, visit http://www.arrl.org/.

Mag Instrument to Launch the MAGLITE Tactical Group (MTG) at SHOT Show 2020

ONTARIO, Calif. -- Mag Instrument is introducing the MAGLITE® Tactical Group (MTG) at SHOT SHOW 2020. The introduction of MTG coincides with the release of several new and enhanced products for tactical use for law enforcement and military including, the ML150LRS Compact Rechargeable System, MAG-TAC II, and Butt Stock Shell Holder.

The ML150LRS Compact Rechargeable System, a smaller version of the award-winning ML150LR, is estimated at 800 lumens, a beam throw of approximately a quarter of a mile, patented heat sink technology, excellent battery life, fast charging, and multiple-function sets and operating modes.

"These new products we know will be well-received in the law-enforcement community and at the SHOT Show 2020," said Anthony Maglica, Founder and CEO of Maglite.

The MAG-TAC II is a compact hand-held flashlight, CR123 powered and ergonomically designed with multiple contoured grooves to provide a firm grip for those using either the HARRIES HOLD or what legendary firearms trainer Bill Murphy has coined as the Rodgers/MAG-TAC Hold.

"Other tactical hand-held flashlights used by law enforcement have tactile surfaces to reduce chance of slippage, but the MAG-TAC II provides a whole new level of secure grip and control in high-tension situations," said Bill Murphy, President of Firearms Trainings Associates.

The newly enhanced MAG-TAC® LED Rechargeable System now with higher lumens and longer run time, is an advanced lighting tool powered by a high capacity Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) rechargeable battery engineered for long service life with a 2.5 hour charge time. Along with superior quality, performance, and reliability, the MAG-TAC® LED rechargeable flashlight comes with a detachable pocket clip and a USB powered mountable charging base. The aluminum body has an aggressive knurled design and stealth matte anodized finish and comes with either a crown or plain bezel.

Maglite Tactical Group is also introducing a tactical shotgun Butt Stock Shell Holder (BSSH). The BSSH will fit most of the popular shotgun models for both right- and left-hand use and provides quick access for up to 8 shells for fast and versatile reloads. "My preferred combat weapon has always been the shotgun and this accessory helps alleviate the one real tactical drawback to that weapon," said Murphy.

Also featured at the booth will be MAGLITE® Roadside Safety packs available in four (4) different models.

All of these products will be showcased at Maglite SHOT SHOW Booths 4029 and 30109.
