Robbins Couple to Market High-Tech Weapon
Robbins is the new American headquarters for a 21st century anti-terrorist weapon than can literally see and shoot around corners.
"Mechanics Hill, now Robbins, made history in 1795 with the famous Kennedy Rifle factory," said Joey Boswell, who helped bring the company to Robbins. "Now the most advanced counter-terror and entry weapon system on the globe comes to Robbins, adding to our rich history of providing arms in defense of liberty."
Golan Group Global Security Solutions has recently added Boswell and his wife, Martha, as U.S. representatives for the CornerShot complete line of weapon systems and accessories. Martha Boswell, a Montgomery County criminal justice graduate now working on her master's degree, will be responsible for training, sales and marketing of the CornerShot weapon system.
"Martha and I will both be certified trainers, two of the only three people in the United States," Joey Boswell said. "The only other one is the Israeli guy who will train us. Then we will offer training to departments who purchase the system."
The CornerShot is a mechanical arm that combines a gun platform with a video system. The forward arm part of the device is operated from the back. It bends in the middle. By reaching around a corner or other protective obstruction, clear sights of an objective -- like a hostage situation -- are available.
"The weapon sits on a plate on a reticulated arm," Boswell said. "We make different plates for different firearms. You cock it one way to go right, one to go left, and one to go center. It originally came out about eight or nine years ago. The Brits have a handful and have used and tested it in combat in Iraq."
