SHOT Show 2007: Report from the Aisles

The latest law enforcement tools, boots, apparel, gear took center stage at SHOT.

March 01, 2007  |  by Scott Smith and David Griffith

Streamlight: H.I.D. Litebox

Designed for search and rescue and other applications that require extremely powerful lights, Streamlight's H.I.D. (High-Intensity Discharge) Litebox is the massive counterpart to your Stinger patrol light. The 10-pound rechargeable light can produce a 1-million-candle beam. It's also got a great feature that allows you to tilt the lens at up to a 180-degree angle from the light's body.

Covert Carrier: Weapon Concealment System

Law enforcement officers should be aware of the CovertCarrier for two reasons: It's an innovative way to carry a backup or hideaway gun, and they may run into it on the street. The CovertCarrier is a replacement grip for a small pistol that incorporates a clip that can be used to secure the weapon inside the user's waistband. Designed by a veteran cop, the CovertCarrier fits a number of compact and subcompact pistols.

Leupold: Tactical Prismatic Riflescope

If you've ever wanted a dot scope that doesn't require batteries, check out Leupold's newest tactical model. Leupold's Tactical Prismatic Riflescope is a 1x14mm rifle optic with an illuminated circle dot that is etched into the scope's glass so that it is visible even when your batteries are out of juice. You can also just use the scope without the illumination module; the circle dot is that easy to see.

Truck Vault: Vehicle Storage

If you need security for your patrol unit, SWAT rig, or any vehicle with four or more wheels, TruckVault has the box for you. This is a true custom built security case to fit your needs. The units can be configured for weapons storage, forensics storage, and even a desk with a white board. You decide what your budget is, and TruckVault can build storage to fit your needs.

DSA: TP9 Tactical Pistol

One of the last things that you expect to see at the SHOT Show is a new
select-fire subgun, but there it was in the DSA booth, the polymer-frame TP9 tactical pistol. The law enforcement-only TP9SF has a cyclic rate of 900 rounds per minute, but the Swiss manufacturer says the gun is remarkably accurate. The LE version has a forestock and Picatinny rails for optics and accessories, and it can be fitted with a suppressor.

CRKT: Multi-Tools

Columbia River Knife and Tool introduced two pocket tools/knives that are noteworthy. The Guppie is a carabiner-style tool that offers a knife, a wrench, a light, and a screwdriver in a compact package. Slightly larger is the Zilla-tool, a clip-it size knife that incorporates a real pair of pliers and a screwdriver into a duty friendly tool. Both are priced under $40.

Trijicon: ACOG TA33

Designed for eye comfort and relief, Trijicon's newest ACOG, the TA33, is a state-of-the-art rifle optic with an illuminated reticle that doesn't require batteries. The 3X power sight has a 30mm objective, and a broad band anti-reflective coated lens. Trijicon says the sight, which incorporates a bullet drop compensator for .223 and .308 caliber rifles, is accurate to 600 meters without any adjustments. For those who want the smallest red dot you can find, Trijicon also introduced the RedDot Sight, the only reflex sight with a lifetime warranty in the market.
