HIGH-TECH WEAPONRY ISSUED TO BORDER PATROL

 HIGH-TECH WEAPONRY ISSUED TO BORDER PATROL
 NASHVILLE, Tenn., Dec. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- With high-tech weaponry


reaching mind-boggling sophistication, the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service is purchasing and issuing special pump shotguns to its field personnel, including the Border Patrol.
 Roger Small, president of Scattergun Technologies Inc., of Nashville, recently signed contracts to build about 1,300 of these "practical" shotguns for I.N.S. A few small contracts have been fulfilled and the initial delivery of 1,249 Tackle Response shotguns to the Border Patrol is expected in early 1992.
 Especially noteworthy is that for the first time, a major U.S. Government Agency has recognized the "practical" shotgun as a truly versatile firearm for general issue to its field units.
 Small said, "For accurate and sustained delivery of multi-purpose projectiles, there is no other firearm like it. With the many standard and special features found on the different models offered, no other out the box shotgun can compare."
 One of the outstanding features found on the Tactical Response shotgun is its Trak-Lock ghost ring sight developed by Scattergun Technologies to meet rigid mandatory sight drop test established by the Border Patrol. This specification mandates that the sights resist damage when the firearm is dropped sights down on concrete from a height of four feet.
 The Trak-Lock sight is made entirely of steel and requires only one screw to provide windage and elevation adjustments in addition to anchoring the sight.
 Other features in the Tackle Response shotgun built by the firm that specializes in specialty shotguns for Law Enforcement and Government Agencies are: self luminous front sight inserts, artificial stock and forearm grips, swivel sling mounts and a one-shot extension of the magazine tube.
 The shotgun is available in 14-inch and 18-inch barrels.
 Traditionally, handguns have a favorite weapon of the Border Patrol, even back in the early years when the inspectors had to buy their own guns. The Border Patrol has produced a long list of famous handgunners.
