January 15, 2015

By A.J. George

In this article I'll focus specifically on firearms and offer my perspective on cleaning and routine maintenance. I can tell you that my methods have been honed over more than two decades of running guns and they've proven their worth.

Realistic Gunfight Training  

December 31, 2014

By Michael T. Rayburn

Even though we are told to keep our distance from subjects to give us time to react to a threat, that's not always realistic. We have to move in and close the distance to deal with people on a daily basis, and our training should reflect that.

Smith & Wesson M&P22 Compact Pistol  

December 21, 2014

By Paul Scarlata

A few years ago S&W introduced its first rimfire M&P, the full-size M&P22. The new M&P22 Compact is just under an inch shorter, 1.6 ounces lighter, and the magazine holds two fewer rounds than the full sized M&P22 pistol. In addition, it is a hammer-, rather than striker-, fired pistol.

Less-Lethal: Mixed Blessings  

November 26, 2014

By Todd D. Keister

It's well known that an offender who decides to resist arrest or attack a police officer must consider the possibility of being injured or even killed for doing so. What is unknown is how the proliferation of less-lethal weapons has changed and will change the way these men and women think.

Police Product Test: Safariland 7TS Duty Holster  

November 26, 2014

By A.J. George

Made of a single piece of proprietary injection-molded polymer, the 7TS was truly the first of its kind and set a new standard for simple yet purely functional duty holsters. Now this holster comes in a version that can carry my Glock pistol with attached weapon light.

SIG Sauer P224 DA/SA Subcompact Pistol  

October 16, 2014

By Paul Scarlata

A quick glance at the P224 dispels any doubts you may have about its heritage. Its looks, feel, and heft scream "P226," although when you pick it up the differences are immediately evident. The P224 is lighter, smaller, and sports a shorter barrel than either the P226 or P229.
