Cleaning Up the LEOSA Mess  

October 22, 2009
If the LEOSA improvements bills become law, retired officers will need to have an official ID from their agency and qualify with a state-certified firearms instructor who qualifies police in their states of residence. This could make it much easier for retired officers from say Illinois agencies to exercise LEOSA carry rights.

Smart Guns Are Not Ready for Duty  

June 12, 2009

What the lab tried to communicate to the NYPD was that the technology wouldn’t have prevented the Edwards tragedy. You see, the radio system will pick up any friendly gun within 600 feet. That means that when the other officers pointed their weapons at Officer Edwards their guns would have only told them that a friendly gun was in the general area. Well, they already knew that. They knew that at least three friendly guns were in the area. After all, they were holding them.

July 18, 2007
Traditional handgun and flashlight combination techniques, place the off-hand in contact with the firing hand and result in the firearm being pushed out in front of the body much more significantly than the high-compressed ready, thereby reducing your retention ability, increasing your exposure around corners, and also causing your muscles to fatigue faster.

June 25, 2007

Reality-Based Training  

May 16, 2007
The phrase “Reality-Based Training” conjures up myriad images for the average law enforcement officer. It could mean working out in expensive interactive shoot houses, performing under stressful conditions in realistic scenarios, or simply training with your uniform on.

Why I Like Smith & Wesson's M&P Pistol  

May 7, 2007
