One-Hand Engagement  

November 1, 2002

By Dave Spaulding

On the Cutting Edge  

October 1, 2002

By David Griffith

No department would dare let said officer hit the street without training and instruction in policies governing the use of a pistol. Many PDs even have policies regarding the use of flashlights. But in most departments an edged weapon/cutting tool clipped to the pocket of the officer's duty pants flies under the radar.

Flying While Armed

By Marcus Wynne

As a former Federal Air Marshal, I am often asked, "Should law enforcement officers be allowed to carry their guns when they are passengers on commercial airliners?" My short answer is, "Hell, yes."

Precision Instrument

As the sear releases the striker and the primer ignites, it's now the rifle's job to deliver that bullet exactly where it must go.

In this training scenario, the officer is at a disadvantage because he can’t draw his weapon until the bad guys make their moves.

Improving the Odds  

September 1, 2002

By Michael T. Rayburn

For some reason, most officers have a vision of a gunfight as being one shooter against another. The reality of such incidents is much different and even deadlier. An alarming number of police gunfights involve more than one bad guy against a single cop.

A small, razor sharp weapon like this leaf blade could be hiding in what looks like a credit card or some other seemingly harmless object.

August 1, 2002

By Steve Collins

As police officers on the streets of our cities, you face potentially deadly disguised and hidden weapons every single day.

As instructor Dennis Quilio watches, Steve O’Keefe squeezes off a shot from his new duty pistol, a Kimber Pro Carry II Model 1911.

The Scientific Method  

August 1, 2002

By Dave Workman

Searching for a weapon that would fit the grips of both small-handed officers and big officers with huge meathooks, Jenkins' attention was drawn to the Model 1911 platform, a pistol design that has not been officially adopted by a U.S. metropolitan police department in 50 years.

Concealed Carry

By David Griffith

Two students were killed, 13 injured. But it could have been much worse if Clark had not been on the scene and armed.

July 1, 2002

By Joseph P. DeBergalis

As I boarded a flight home from meeting with members of Congress, security was tight and new alerts were announced.
