What to Look for in a Backup Gun  

October 7, 2010

By Ed Lovette

Because of the tough economic times most agencies issue only a duty sidearm, and the officer wishing to carry a backup can purchase one from a department-approved list. Let's take a look at some of the characteristics you should look for in a BUG.

Sturm, Ruger & Co. KLCR 357 Compact Revolver  

October 7, 2010

By Ed Lovette

I am an avowed fan of the revolver in general and short-barreled revolvers in particular. So I was prepared to like the LCR. And I'm happy to tell you it did not disappoint me.

Smith & Wesson Bodyguard 380 Pistol  

September 16, 2010

By Paul Scarlata

As its name indicates, the Smith & Wesson Bodyguard 380 was designed from the ground up for use by police officers and licensed civilians who needed a small, lightweight, concealable, and easy to use pistol. I believe it would be safe to say that S&W's engineers have delivered just that.

Lights and Lasers: It's Easy Being Green  

August 31, 2010

By Dave Douglas

Smith & Wesson M&P15R  

August 20, 2010

By Nick Jacobellis

I'd like to discuss a somewhat unusual rifle choice that can help law enforcement agencies and individual officers realistically cope with the rising cost and shortage of .223/5.56 patrol rifle ammunition. I believe the solution to this problem is for law enforcement agencies to field the Smith & Wesson M&P15R M4-style carbine chambered in 5.45x39mm.

Searching for an Effective Small Caliber Sniper Round  

August 12, 2010

By Dave Bahde

This is about an alternative to a .308 for those snipers who will likely never even see a 100-yard deployment and do not need the overpenetration or down range effect. I believe the 6.8 SPC is that alternative.
