SHOT Show 2009: Best of Show

Dozens of great law enforcement products debuted in the aisles of the Orange County Convention Center.

March 01, 2009  |  by POLICE Magazine Staff


Covert Carry Messenger Bag

BlackHawk's Covert Carry Messenger Bag looks like a messenger's bag or over-the-shoulder carry bag used by students, business people, and messengers. The difference is this bag is designed to support law enforcement's needs on and off duty.

The Covert Carry is built to tote your laptop and your handgun, magazines, and other support gear. The strap encloses the bag for security and strength and there is a removable waist belt for added security and stability when moving or in hazardous environments.

Breaching Technologies Inc. (BTI)

Explosive Breaching Doors

BTI debuted several breaching doors and tools at SHOT this year. But we were most impressed by its new Explosive Breaching Doors made of virtually indestructible HDPE skin. The doors allow officers to conduct training involving the placement of charges and entry tactics without repeatedly blowing up real doors.

With the Strip/Lock Explosive Door, training charges can be placed on the lock plate and along the strip plate, whereas with the Lock Explosive Door, training charges can only be placed on the lock plate. Both models can be installed in a structure such as a live-fire house or used with an optional Free Standing Leg Kit.

DTX Pistol

Detonics CEO Bruce Siddle has spent decades studying how the human body reacts in combat. His love of firearms led him to acquire gun manufacturer Detonics; his interest in "combat human factors" led him to spur the development of the DTX. The DTX is the first handgun designed to work with the natural tendencies of people under combat stress and improves point shooting performance. In addition, the DTX has oversized controls to make it easier to use under stress. The DTX will be available in 9mm and .40 S&W.

XPS3 Sight

The new XPS3 is the shortest EoTech holographic sight available, and that gives the user more room on his or her rifle rails for optic enhancers and other accessories. The XPS offers three reticle options. It runs on a single CR-123 battery, which gives it almost three times as much runtime as the N-cell EoTech sights. The XPS3 has night vision compatibility. The XPS2 is the non-night vision version.

First Choice Armor

Locator Vest

When impacted, First Choice Armor's new ballistic vest system transmits the wearer's exact location, identity, and vital signs to a dispatcher or main server. This is by far one of the coolest items we saw on the show floor—because of its usefulness and its inherent wow factor. A membrane around the ballistic package transmits a code if it breaks under force from a bullet or other trauma, alerting dispatchers and plotting the incident location on a map for fast response to the scene.

This technology, developed by Portman Security System, uses GPS and GSM wireless communication to transmit the information automatically. Any ballistic vest can be retrofitted with this system.
