Brite-Strike's APALS is a very small self-adhesive LED light designed for use in tactical operations.

Danner: Descender Boots

Danner's Descender uses a new outsole design the company says gives tactical operators controlled and reliable arresting during fast roping. The Descender's outsole uses Vibram's abrasion-resistant V-4 compound in the medial arch to aid in controlling descent. Durable and low-oil content Nubuc leather and breathable 1000D spacer mesh-nylon upper keep the rope clean. The Descender also provides a co-molded midsole that offers impact, puncture, and lesion resistance. Available in a 4.5- or 8-inch style and with or without GORE-TEX lining, the Descender comes in canteen green or black. Suggested retail price for the Descender ranges from $179.95 for the 4.5-inch to $199.95 for the 8-inch style. It will ship in July.

Elzetta: ZFL-M60 Flashlight

The ZFL-M60 is tougher than nails. And to prove it, company reps used one to hammer nails into a pine two-by-four. Available with a standard or crenellated bezel, the ZFL-M60 has a 235-lumen max output. Features include: high output, low output, and strobe. For use on a long gun, the light can be operated by a remote tape switch. All components of the ZFL-M60 are American made.

Galco: KingTuk IWB Holster

Galco's KingTuk is an IWB holster designed for comfort, speed, and versatility. The KingTuk has a backing plate made of lined saddle leather with Napa leather front and Kydex holster pocket. Users can set the carry height using removable metal belt clips that can be moved up or down. Available in black with standard metal clips that fit belts up to 1.75 inches wide.

GearClip: Locker Hanger

Designed by a police officer for police officers, the GearClip locker hanger is a tool for keeping duty belts and all of your gear organized in your locker. The metal clip attaches to most locker vents, allowing you to hang your duty belt inside the locker and out of the way. A hook on the GearClip extends out of the locker vent, allowing you to hang your uniform outside for attaching name plates and insignia.

Glock: Expanded Gen4 Line

Glock will release two more Gen4 pistols in 2011, including the G21 .45 ACP and G34 9mm pistol. The two new Gen4s will arrive in the summer, and Glock will also release a new beaver-tail backstrap to help larger-handed officers avoid slide bite. The backstrap is expected to be offered as an accessory, according to a company rep at the Glock booth. Glock now offers 11 Gen4 pistols. Gen4 Glocks feature dual-recoil springs to improve accuracy and adjustable backstraps so officers can achieve an optimal grip on the weapon.

Kimber's new Solo Carry is a micro-compact 9mm pistol with 1911 ergonomics. The 17-ounce striker-fired pistol has an overall length of 5.5 inches and a barrel length of just 2.7 inches. Features include a manual ambidextrous thumb safety, ambi mag release, and a checkered slide release. The Solo Carry's frame is machined from aluminum and finished in KimPro II.
