Posted on 09 June 2010 by Dan

Thompson/Center, a Smith and Wesson Company, introduced three new officially licensed BSA® rifles including a limited edition BSA® 100th Anniversary G2 Contender muzzleloader, a BSA® IMPACT muzzleloader, and a BSA® Hotshot .22 rifle for youth shooters. All models are perfect for use at the range, in the woods or as collector items. Each model carries the Boy Scouts of America® logo on the frame or is embossed with the official 100th Anniversary logo in the stock. As with all Thompson/Center firearms, these BSA® versions have a lifetime warranty and are made in the USA.

The limited edition .50 caliber G2 Contender Muzzleloader features traditional walnut stock embedded with a BSA® 100th Anniversary coin and a 24 karat gold plate engraved with the BSA® 100th Anniversary logo on the receiver.


For the youth and novice shooters, the BSA® IMPACT Muzzleloader is designed for durability and operational simplicity. The black composite stock is embedded with a medallion featuring the Boy Scouts of America Universal Emblem.


For youth, first time shooters, the Thompson/Center’s BSA® HotShot .22 rifle is lightweight, accurate, and simple to use with its single-shot design and hammer block trigger. The commemorative Hotshot will feature a brown composite stock along with the BSA® Fleur-de-lis etched on the receiver. The BSA® Hotshot will be available this August through Academy Sports.

Our Product Mission
To create and distribute the freshest tasting, fun ice cream available, using only natural ingredients and free of preservatives and artificial colors, dyes and sweeteners.

Our Objective
As concerned parents, we know the importance of healthy, nutritious foods our children eat. Our children love ice cream, and we won’t put any ingredients, preservatives, or artificial colors or flavors in foods that our children eat, so why would we serve it to your family? You can be sure that Mountain Jim’s ice creams are quality, because our children eat it, too.

Our Environment
Our ice creams are made in family dairies regulated by state agencies committed to strict sanitary standards. We strive to always maintain high safety standards in regards to cleanliness, product quality, and our manufacturing environment.

We believe that this attention to detail should also extend beyond our production world to the world around us. Mountain Jim’s promotes recycling in our facilities and personal lives whenever possible, and encourages active participation in environmental and natural activities in local communities. Life is a contact sport, and we should encourage our children and families to fully experience as much of God’s creation and natural beauty around us as possible.

The BSA License Insider encourages you to contact your local grocer and encourage them to carry Moutain Jim’s Ice Cream if they aren’t already doing so. However, if they won’t carry it you can order Mountain Jim’s Ice Cream online on their website. Currently the new flavor is not listed on their website.
