Police Product Test: Forum Industries Patrol Jacket

April 15, 2014

Forum Industries is doing some wonderful things with Gore fabrics and its latest line of protective duty clothing is nothing short of impressive. My example was the company's R521 Windstopper Patrol Soft Shell in the "IKE," or above-the-belt cut.

Police Product Test: Tactical Impulse LE-1 Flashlight Kit

April 1, 2014

So what's so special? It's not so much the light itself, but the LE-1's system of accessories Tactical Impulse has designed to go with it that make this a true light "multi-tool."

Police Product Test: Team Wendy Bump Helmet

March 28, 2014

A good helmet is an essential piece of kit for any tactical operator. The helmets of today are lighter, stronger, provide better protection, are customizable, and are comfortable. Team Wendy's Exfil LTP Tactical Bump Helmet fits all of these criteria.

O.F. Mossberg & Sons MVP Patrol Rifle

March 4, 2014

The MVP is a no-frills bolt-action rifle chambered for a 5.56mm/.223 round. It has a 16-inch cold-hammer forged, heavy profile, 1/2x28 threaded barrel with an A2 flash hider.

Police Product Test: ATI Raven Benelli M4 Package

March 1, 2014

Because of the shotgun's increasingly diverse role, the aftermarket accessory industry is just as diverse. Advanced Technology International (ATI) recently focused its attention on one of the arena's heavy hitters, the Benelli M4 semi-automatic shotgun.

Police Product Test: SureFire P3X Fury

February 14, 2014

These days, if you're not pushing 1,000 lumens out of a handheld light you're not impressing anyone. The new SureFire P3X Fury handheld tactical light impresses everyone.

Police Product Test: Casio G-shock GW-9400 Rangeman Watch

February 11, 2014

Casio's GW-9400 isn't as much a watch as it is a wrist-mounted computer. It has the standard clock and stopwatch functions found on almost all G-Shocks but raises the bar by adding an altimeter, barometer, compass, thermometer, alarm, countdown timer, and a memory function to log all of this info should you need it.

Police Product Test: Eye of Mine Eye-View 1080HD Video Sunglasses

January 17, 2014

Like their predecessor, these glasses come with interchangeable clear and polarized grey lenses and have a high-definition video camera built into the bridge of the nose.

Police Product Test: Smith & Wesson Tac Side-Zip Boots

January 6, 2014

Out of the box I was impressed with the Tac boot's clean, classic styling. The leather construction makes these puncture resistant and windproof, keeping your feet safe and warm in the colder months.

Daniel Defense DDM4 Rifle with Lite Rail

January 6, 2014

When my test and evaluation DDM4 arrived, I tore into the box like a kid on Christmas morning. Inside was a beautiful DDM4 rifle with a 16-inch barrel, Magpul MOE stock, DD's fixed front and rear sights, a Superior Suppression muzzle device, and a 12-inch Lite Rail II (LRII).

Police Product Test: Gerber Downrange Tomahawk

December 23, 2013

Gerber has deemed the Downrange Tomahawk a "three tiered" breaching tool. The axe head serves as a hammer, chopper, and leverage point for prying.

Police Product Test: StatGear T3 Tactical Auto Rescue Tool

December 23, 2013

Designed by New York City Paramedic Avi Goldstein, the T3 is a true multi-tool but with one mission: freeing collision victims from the wreckage of their vehicles.

Police Product Test: Streamlight TLR-2G Weapon-mounted Light

November 26, 2013

For duty use the TLR-2G is hard to beat. It will fit most modern service weapons and there are a variety of duty holsters designed to fit around it.

Police Product Test: Keen Detroit Soft-toe 8" Boots

November 26, 2013

If you're looking for a great hiking boot disguised as a smart-looking duty boot, the Keen Detroits are a great choice.

Police Product Test: TruGlo Tru-See Targets

October 24, 2013

I like these new TruGlo Tru-See targets. They take some of the guesswork and haphazard engineering out of the precision shooting process.

Police Product Test: Fechheimer-Vertx ColdBlack Polo and Phantom LT Pants

October 24, 2013

Vertx's mission is to produce "functionally advanced clothing for the operational athlete." For this review Vertx sent me a few pairs of Phantom LT pants and one ColdBlack polo shirt.

Police Product Test: SureFire M600 Ultra Scout

September 25, 2013

The previous model had a maximum output of 120 lumens, the new one produces 500 lumens. That means the new Ultra Scout cannot only clear a room, but also light up a target at 100 yards.

Glock 30S Subcompact Pistol

September 11, 2013

The Glock 30S frame is borrowed from the 30SF; a subcompact .45 ACP with a capacity of 10 rounds. The benefit here is a larger frame allowing for 10-round capacity.

Police Product Test: 5.11 Tactical STRYKE Pants

August 27, 2013

Right out of the bag I was impressed with the STRYKE Pants. The fit and finish is outstanding and the ripstop material is soft yet sturdy. The stitching, pockets, closures are very clean and obviously a step above basic BDUs.

Of Lights and Lasers

August 19, 2013

Laser sighting systems help officers with target identification, and as we well know when deploying any weapon system, target identification is key. We are not always going to have the luxury of getting into a gunfight under "ideal" conditions.
