Police Product Test: Point Blank Guardian Front-Opening Vest

September 2, 2016

Point Blank's Guardian vest is aimed squarely at the need for a more utilitarian approach to body armor.

Police Product Test: AE Light AEX35/50 HID Searchlight

August 15, 2016

This is a searchlight. It is designed to blast a wide beacon of daylight over a very long range. It just happens to be in a package small enough to carry with one hand. Considering most lights of this power are mounted to vehicles, that is truly impressive.

My new Armalite AR-10 Tactical Rifle is a direct gas impingement, .308 caliber, semi-automatic rifle with a 20-inch barrel and a rifle-length gas system. It has iron sights and is magazine fed, just like the original. That's about where the similarities end.

Police Product Test: Revision Eyewear HellFly Ballistic Sunglasses

June 9, 2016
