This review is from: Tenzing TZ 2220 Day Pack (Sports)
I really like the quality, and attention to detail, on this new Tenzing TZ 2220 day pack. I am skeptical, about wearing a back/day pack when I hunt or explore, however this pack is very light weight ,only 4 pounds empty. I usually wear a waist pack, for freedom of movement. When I put this day pack on, It felt very comfortable ,and became part of my body. I did not feel constricted, around my shoulders, when I put my gun up to look in the scope, or to shoot. This day pack has a spot, for my hydration bottle,up to 2 liters. which is a very important feature. The yellow ,no rattle zippers, and clasps ,are made of high quality materials, for silent access. The back pad is channeled for air flow ,for cooling when you are working up a sweat,climbing ,running, stalking,crawling,etc.This pack has 2 compression straps on the bottom ,so you can strap on extra gear , sleeping bag,rain gear ,outerwear.or ?. The padding around the waist area, makes wearing the pack easier on your back ,as your waist takes part of the load. Built in bow/rifle pocket ,and rain cover ,make up more of the features. of this high quality day pack. The sides of the pack have 4 lateral compression straps, to hold and secure your load .DYNEEMA fibers ,the worlds strongest fiber,yet light enough to float on water, and Tenzing signature, tie down loops make this pack unmatched in protection against punctures,rips and failures. I give this pack my highest recommendation for quality workmanship.features, and comfort ability. I hope this review is informative ,to help readers to make an informed buying decision. { FISHGRILLER APPROVED } .

Firearms Industry Economic Impact
Nearly Doubles in Five Years
NEWTOWN, Conn. – The total economic impact of the firearms and ammunition industry in the United States increased from $19.1 billion in 2008 to $37.7 billion in 2013, a 97 percent increase, while the total number of full-time equivalent jobs rose from more than 166,000 to more than 245,000, a 48 percent increase in that five-year period, according to a new report released today by the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the industry’s trade association.
“We have seen dramatic, unprecedented during peacetime growth in the firearms and ammunition industry that is the direct result of consumer demand for our products in the last five years,” said Stephen L. Sanetti, NSSF president and chief executive officer. “While our nation’s overall economic recovery has been slow since 2008, our industry has been a true bright spot, increasing our direct workforce by nearly half, adding jobs that pay an average of more than $47,700 in wages and benefits. Supplier and induced jobs* were also increased by about half since 2008, even as we increased federal tax payments by 93 percent, Pittman-Robertson excise taxes that support wildlife conservation by 83 percent and state business taxes by 77 percent.”
The Firearms and Ammunition Industry Economic Impact Report: 2013 provides a state by state breakdown of job numbers, wages and output covering direct, supplier and induced employment, as well as federal excise taxes paid. Access the full report here.
* Induced jobs are those created by the economic impact made by the industry.
