10-11-2013: A NOTE ON GINEX PRIMERS
By James Cook |Orlando, FL

It seems that nowadays everyone is wary of anything coming out of E. Europe. There has long been a stigma associated with the region that would have people believe that anything coming from those parts is unreliable, poorly made, and lacks the quality of more popular logos. With the U.S. market’s saturation of brands like Wolf and Sellier & Bellot, who have gained notorious reputations amongst avid shooters, as well as the countless rounds from old, Soviet-era stockpiles that have somehow managed to migrate over the Atlantic just to have unknowing enthusiasts happily run them through their top-shelf AR’s (only to quickly crowd the message boards with tales of how everything not made in Lake City is complete garbage), it’s little wonder how the region gained such a bad rap. Just this week, at a range near Ft. Bragg, I was met with such overwhelming shock and disgust at having loaded a box of Igman 5.56 that anyone listening would have thought I had crammed my magazine with baby birds.

The fact is that there are plenty of manufacturers in that part of the world who pride themselves on producing ammo that will outperform any of their better known contemporaries; and these gross overgeneralizations are doing nothing but depriving more conscientious consumer’s access to quality at wholesale prices. Unfortunately Ginex is one such company.

Ginex primers are NATO-tested, ISO-certified, mil-spec primers of FAR SUPERIOR quality to brands like CCI or Sellier & Bellot. Companies like General Dynamics, IMI, FN Herstal, amongst a growing list of other reputable brands who pride themselves on creating a quality, reliable, and safe product have ultimately turned to Ginex for the longest-lasting, highest-value primer on the market. In addition, numerous military and law enforcement units around the world trust Ginex primers in all of their service ammunition.

 With regards to safety, each Ginex primer is individually lacquered to (1) protect against moisture and (2) to keep the internal mixture from seeping out. (Most manufacturers will note that in large batches of primers there is typically some amount of residual "dust". This dust poses an extreme hazard to the safety of anyone or anything that interacts with it, given that this dust is a friction-sensitive, impact explosive! Why would any manufacturer want that in their plant when they don't have to?)

More than 80% of production is intended for export to the following countries: USA, Germany, Italy, Israel, Great Britain, Hungary, Turkey, Croatia, Slovakia, Greece, Malaysia, Czech Republic, Egypt, Serbia, Montenegro, Slovenia, Spain, Ukraine, Chile, Singapore, Austria, United Arab Emirates, Romania, and Ecuador. Unfortunately, however, the United States, hasn’t caught on to the trend so much as the others (presumably for reasons noted above).

These primers are manufactured for 100% ignition and can have up to a 50 year shelf life if properly stored. Additionally, these primers are NOT water soluble. This means that if you take a primer manufactured by CCI, S&B, Remington, etc. and place them in a glass of water, Ginex will be the only one that doesn't dissolve. Not only that, but you could take that primer, stick it into a cartridge and it would still fire! Almost no other primer can do that.

Ginex also maintains one of the few facilities in the world capable of custom manufacturing primers to meet the unique needs of its clients. Customers with specific sizing requirements for brass, accuracy tolerances, firing pin depths, and those who want to achieve optimal fit and burn with every shot can rest assured in the quality and care guaranteed by Ginex.  

Ultimately what you get with a Ginex primer is the safest, most reliable, and best value primer on the market today. A  5.56 primer of comparable quality will easily retail at $44/thousand pcs., we're offering them at just over $24! In addition to 5.56, GDM can supply small rifle/pistol, large rifle/pistol, as well as eco-friendly primers that are non-toxic, non-corrosive, and free of heavy metals.

For those of you looking to make the smart switch to Ginex, not only are we offering the best primer for the money, but our services guarantee something that almost no other company on earth can, and that is: when (not IF) we hit another patch when primers become as scarce and costly as they did recently, people who have agreements with us are guaranteed their fixed price and continued availability!!! Contact us today to talk about becoming one of the fortunate few who won’t ever have to worry about supply again.

9-18-2013: FAQ: INTERNATIONAL CODE OF CONDUCT FOR PRIVATE SECURITY PROVIDERS ASSOCIATION (ICOCA)
By Jeff Moran | Geneva

On August 16th, the Obama Administration signaled tentative plans to support a new scheme to legally bind government military and security services contractors into complying with international humanitarian law, human rights law, arms control and disarmament law, as well as other requirements of the United Nations (UN) Security Council.[1]

The scheme applies to private military and security services contractors (and their subcontractors) doing business with the United States Department of State.  No details were given about applying the new scheme to all federal contracts or if any state procurement agencies plan to do the same.  The concept of the plan would be to obligate all contractors to be members of the newly formed International Code of Conduct for Private Security Providers Association (ICoCA).

This FAQ is designed to answer questions about the ICoCA and to explore some of the implications of the Obama Administration plans:

1. What is the ICoCA?
2. What does the Code entail?
3. How did the Code and ICoCA get started?
4. What motivated the creation of the ICoCA?
5. How does the ICoCA Make Decisions?
6. How are companies reacting to this?
7. Will all states adopt the Obama Administration approach?
8. Why might a States and Companies keep their distance from the ICoCA?
9. What are the strategic industry implications?
