Retention Holster Showdown  

September 1, 2007

By Steve Ashley

These days, weapon retention is a serious subject. And with good reason. About 20 percent of all officers feloniously killed with handguns are slain with their own weapons. This disturbing statistic is trending up despite the increasing availability of holsters designed to aid officers in weapon retention.

Para-Ordnance Carry 9 LDA  

September 1, 2007

By Paul Scarlata

The Canadian firm of Para-Ordnance has been a trailblazer when it comes to improving the classic 1911 pistol. One of the company's most radical concepts is the Light Double Action (LDA) trigger mechanism, which can be found on its new Carry 9 LDA.

Seeing the Light  

August 1, 2007

By Mike Detty

When John Matthews developed the first SureFire flashlight, he realized that for officers to get the most benefit out of the light, they would need special training. So Matthews, now president and CEO of SureFire, created the SureFire Institute, one of the nation's premier low-light combat training academies.

August 1, 2007

Go to the Shooting Hunting Outdoor Trade (SHOT) Show, and you will quickly realize that there are a multitude of companies making long guns. The following is a brief guide to help you discover what's available in the patrol rifle and carbine market.

Smith & Wesson M&P15T Tactical Carbine  

August 1, 2007

By Mike Detty

Although Smith & Wesson is one of our oldest and largest surviving gun companies, the iconic manufacturer is a relative newcomer when it comes to tactical rifles. The only problem that I've heard associated with the S&W rifles is their availability. It seems that demand far exceeds supply. Just recently, I received the test sample that I had ordered at last year's seminar.

Electric Bullet  

July 1, 2007

By David Griffith

Creating the XREP wasn't easy. It required an arduous process of trial and error and many trips back to the drawing board for re-engineering and redesign before TASER could overcome all of the obstacles necessary to build a 12-gauge munition that carries the charge of an X26.

Glock G21SF Semi-Automatic Pistol  

July 1, 2007

By Paul Scarlata

Most officers who carry Glock pistols will know exactly what I mean when I say that the new Glock G21SF is "...just a Glock." But such flippancy should in no way be taken as a negative comment because one of the line's most positive features is that once you know how to use one Glock, you know how to use all of them.

Winning at Night  

June 1, 2007

By Kevin R. Davis

Gunshots still ring in your ears as you hunker down behind your patrol car. You know the armed suspect ran from his car into some roadside brush, but surreal red and blue flashes from your overheads make it difficult to focus on where he might be now. You see a muzzle flash as he fires again from the shadows.

Smith & Wesson M&P Compact Pistol  

June 1, 2007

By Nick Jacobellis

During my law enforcement career I never had a malfunction or a problem with any of the Smith & Wesson pistols that I owned or was issued. Needless to say, I like Smith & Wesson pistols.

Wiley-X PT-1 Multi-Lens Glasses  

June 1, 2007

By Scott Smith

One of the most attractive features of the Wiley-X PT-1 multi-lens glasses is their wrap design. This gives you protection from debris and other objects that can fly into your eyes from the side. Personally, I have found this feature to be particularly beneficial on the training range when brass casings fly hot and fast.
