Significant Impact  

July 1, 2008

By Melanie Basich

Read on for a sampling of impact projectiles available for law enforcement.

Police Product Test: Trijicon RedDot  

July 1, 2008

By Scott Smith

The Trijicon RedDot Sight is designed to be mounted on several of the company's ACOGs, but is also designed to be mounted on a handgun. I know there will be numerous guffaws at the idea of a red-dot sight on a duty handgun. But naysayers were also quick to dismiss the use of red-dot sights on duty ARs a decade ago. Now they're not a novelty but the norm.

Kriss-TDI Super V Vector  

June 1, 2008

By Mike Detty

You've probably seen the Kriss Super V Vector SMG on the popular television show "Future Weapons" or perhaps read about it in Popular Science. This new submachine gun has generated a huge amount of interest because of its radically different operating system that reduces the effects of recoil and also controls muzzle climb.

FN's SCAR Rifle Offers Heavy Punch, Light Recoil  

May 1, 2008

By David Griffith

Available in two versions—5.56mm and 7.62mm—the SCAR was developed to meet specific SOCOM requirements, but it would make an excellent SWAT rifle.

May 1, 2008

By Nick Jacobellis

The S&W 327 Tactical Rail Revolver is best suited to be used by the lead penetrator of a SWAT team, especially since this revolver carries as many rounds of ammunition as the average .45 ACP 1911.

TREXPO West 2008: Best of Show  

April 1, 2008

By David Griffith

Both TREXPO's roots and its evolving focus were both evident in the product offerings at the West Coast edition of the conference held Feb. 19–22 in Long Beach, Calif. On the show floor of the Long Beach Convention Center, several new products made their debut and several others made their TREXPO debut.

Walther Police Pistol Slim (PPS)  

April 1, 2008

By Nick Jacobellis

I was really impressed with the 9mm model of the PPS. Its captive dual recoil spring and excellent ergonomics combine to make an extremely soft shooting pistol. In fact, it's the softest shooting subcompact pistol that I have ever tested.

The Forgotten Police Weapon  

April 1, 2008

By Mike Nitch

Perhaps the most prominent use of the Kubotan is to apply crushing force against bone, joints, and/or muscle. A simple rule of thumb: Most pressure point control training that you learned to perform in the academy with your fingers can be performed much more effectively with a Kubotan.

SHOT Show 2008: Report from the Aisles  

March 1, 2008

By Scott Smith and Melanie Basich

At this year's SHOT, held last month in Las Vegas, aisles of booths were overflowing into several tent buildings erected in the parking lot. And a good portion of the overflow belonged to law enforcement products.

Kahr PM45  

March 1, 2008

By Mike Detty

Its slim measurements and short height make the PM45 perfect for its intended role as a concealed carry gun. Despite its diminutive size and light weight, this pistol is controllable and effective. Kahr has redefined the criteria by which we judge concealable handguns.
