Police Product Test: Benchmade Triage Knife

Lamb acts as a consultant to 5.11, providing input as to what will and will not survive the harshest treatment you can give gear. His two books sold via the 5.11 site are not to be missed. The first is "Green Eyes & Black Rifles," which deals with the AR series of rifles and their use and deployment. The second is "Stay in the Fight." It deals with handguns and their use.

These two books are two of the best laid out and thought out training books I have seen. They cover the details of presentations, selecting the type of weapon for duty, malfunctions, choosing support accessories and ones not to choose (and why), and even training drills to build your skills and comfort with the chosen weapons system. While these books will not replace hands-on training, they will augment your personal and agency training and deployment of your duty weapons.

What sets these books apart from others I have seen is the clarity of thought. Lamb uses the K.I.S.S. (keep it super simple) method that the military uses to train basic trainees and high-speed Spec Warfare Operators in explaining each topic. Additionally, the many photographs included in the book show you exactly what he is writing about. This is something many other shooting books don't do. Seeing the action you've just read about clarifies many issues and drives home the message.

"Green Eyes & Black Rifles" and "Stay in the Fight" are two books you should have in both your agency and personal training libraries. They will give you good information and a reference source to quote when you need one to reinforce a thought. You can order both of these books from 5.11 Tactical's Website.

Tactical Assault Gear: Tactical Go Bag

When it comes to bags and packs built to meet police and military needs, Tactical Assault Gear (T.A.G.) offers quality, innovative gear for duty, range, and casual use. What makes T.A.G. different from other companies is the folks who do the work; most of them are visually impaired. Not long ago T.A.G. partnered with LC Industries to allow visually challenged individuals to find gainful employment. They do this with the latest manufacturing and product technology. You get the best gear around while helping a person with physical challenges.

T.A.G.'s Tactical Go Bag is one of those innovative products that fits a myriad of needs. It can be an emergency call-out bag, range bag, duty bag, etc. This is thanks in no small part to its many pockets.

Numerous external pouches can be used to carry spare handgun or carbine magazines, expandable baton, radio, and general "stuff." The outer pouches are all hook-and-loop closed for easy access while keeping your gear secure until needed. The dual zipper main pocket and each side has a zipper mesh pocket to secure small items. The center of the bag is large enough to carry small binoculars, a gas mask, water bottle, or whatever other gear you need for a call out or shift.

Whatever you carry in the bag will be there when you need it. The bag is made from 1,000-denier Cordura and the handles wrap the body of the bag for durability. Tactical Assault Gear's Tactical Go Bag will serve you well on the city streets or wherever duty takes you, and it will do so for years to come.
