Springfield Armory's XD(m)-9 5.25 pistol is the latest arrival in the XD(m) line. It was designed with the help of champion shooter Rob Leatham.

Springfield's XD(m)-9 5.25

At first glance, Springfield Armory's XD(m)-9 5.25 pistol may be viewed as a pistol for competitive shooters. The company did indeed seek design input from champion shooter Rob Leatham. However, it's a viable option for police service. It's excellent ergonomics, low recoil, and high cartridge capacity would be especially useful in tactical operations. Read our full "Arsenal" review of the gun.

In addition to recording eight hours of high-definition video and audio with a 71-degree field of view, the new LE-2 from VieVu on-body camera system is facial recognition compatible and can live-stream as it records. It easily clips to a uniform to record evidence for later use in court. The LE-2 requires the Veripatrol software system, which utilizes a Digital Signature process that marks each video with a digital hash certificate to prove that the video has not been altered. If you already have a previous generation VieVu camera, you can easily upgrade to the LE-2 system. It will be available in the first quarter of 2012.

Kel-Tec KSG

Kel-Tec's KSG shotgun may be the most anticipated firearm of 2011, due to its unusual, innovative design. The high-capacity weapon arrives with twin 7-round magazine tubes, giving operators 15 total rounds when a shell is chambered. The KSG's short barrel and bullpup design give patrol officers flexibility when deploying it from a cruiser. View detailed photos of the weapon, and be sure to read our November "Arsenal" review.

The Javelin 600 tactical flashlight from American Technologies Network  Corp. (ATN) can be hand carried or attached to a weapon. It features  three LEDs and produces 600 lumens at maximum output. The Javelin has a  modular bezel and is built of aircraft-grade aluminum. Power is supplied  by four lithium CR123A batteries.

Weapon Lights and Laser Sights

Weapon-mounted lights free up the operator to control a handgun or rifle, provide better target acquisition in low-light situations, and offer another less-lethal option to disorient a subject. When added to a sidearm, lasers give officers greater ability to acquire targets and disorient subjects. View this gallery for six options to consider.

International Cartridge sponsored the live-fire demonstration. Frangible rounds were fired into a metal box, and the powder was collected to be shown to attendees.
