Springfield Armory X-Treme Duty Semi-Auto Pistols  

December 1, 2005

By Scott Smith

Back in the late 1990s, a new polymer pistol called the HS 2000 hit the market. Made in Croatia by I.M. Metal, the HS 2000 suffered from poor marketing, a poor supply of holsters and accessories, and ultimately, poor sales.

Gerber Legendary Blades LMF II Fixed-Blade Knife  

December 1, 2005

By Scott Smith

If you ask me, it seems like Gerber Legendary Blades is really dialed in to the hard-use duty knife market. The company is obviously listening to the requests of real world cops, soldiers, and other operators. Otherwise, how can you explain the new Gerber LMF II fixed blade?

Stainless-Steel Weapon Retention  

November 1, 2005

By Eric Edgecomb

The call comes in at 22:45 on a sleepy night. There’s a domestic dispute at a home in a middle-class neighborhood. You acknowledge the call and drive toward the address.

Detonics USA CombatMaster  

November 1, 2005

By Mike Detty

If you started your law enforcement career carrying a Smith & Wesson M19 in a Sam Browne rig, chances are that you’re pretty darn close to retirement. Chances are too that you’ll also remember the splash it made when Detonics introduced the CombatMaster in 1977.

SOG Knives Trident Folder  

November 1, 2005

By Scott Smith

Over the past few years of writing this column for Police I have had the chance to examine and use several knives and pocket tools from SOG Knives. All of these have been excellent tools for hard use. The SOG Trident Sea, Air, Land folder is no exception.

IACP 2005: Best of Show  

November 1, 2005

By David Griffith and Melanie Hamilton

The last few years it has seemed that the exhibitors at the International Association of Chiefs of Police were escaping from a computer expo. There was so much eye-glazing tech-geek jargon going on at one recent IACP that we honestly had to check to see that we hadn’t somehow walked into a computer show by mistake.

Special Deliveries  

November 1, 2005

By Dave Young

For generations law enforcement has been seeking the perfect round, the so-called “magic bullet.” The ideal police weapon is a munition that could be fired at a distance to temporarily incapacitate a suspect so that he or she could be taken into custody without injury to either the suspect or the arresting officer. It would work every time, and it would be a substitute for deadly force.

Getting the Point  

October 1, 2005

By Jim Gregg

Although I consider point shooting to be more natural than shooting with sights, there are definitely some tricks to it. I’ve been teaching people how to shoot this way for a long time and I’ve learned along the way that people “see” differently. Knowing how you see a target is the key to shooting accurately when point shooting.

Glock G38 and G39 Compact Pistols  

October 1, 2005

By Paul Scarlata

Today's police handgun market abounds with full-sized, medium-sized, and compact .45 ACP pistols. But until recently the designers of these weapons all labored under a seemingly insurmountable constraint: size.

By David Griffith

At each TREXPO trade show, the staff of Police fans out into the aisles in search of the most innovative police products on display at the show. Some shows are better than others.
