Heckler & Koch HK45 Compact Tactical  

October 10, 2013

You can tell very quickly when you open the box that the HK45CT is more than just an update of the combat proven HK USP Compact. Ergonomically, this is a 21st-century pistol all the way, but it offers the reliability and toughness of a classic HK.

October 10, 2013

Drawing First Blood  

October 9, 2013

You are a chief or sheriff. Get real and train with your officers. You should be one of the first enrolled in your defensive tactics and subject control training classes. Your attendance and participation will speak to all, and what it will say is this stuff is real and it's important.

Investigating Identity Theft and Car Rental  

October 2, 2013

Loyalty rewards programs offered by certain rental car companies are designed with convenience in mind—in one case, all too convenient for a car thief. By using fake credit cards and stolen drivers' licenses, a woman in Orange County, Calif., engineered the theft of 42 rental vehicles in 2012 from a major rental car company.
