Springfield Armory XD Sub-Compact 3" Pistol

December 17, 2012

The XD Sub-Compact pistols scored well in my CQB drills. I had no problem using the 9mm XD Sub-Compact to consistently engage a steel plate the same size as the scoring area of a TQ19 Police Qualification Target at various distances, including at longer ranges.

SIG Sauer P250 Subcompact Pistol

November 17, 2012

The potential for customization with the P250 means that you can select the perfect frame size that provides the best reach to the trigger and the nicest grip or ergonomics for your hand size.

Lewis Machine & Tool LM8MRP Rifle

October 11, 2012

Lewis Machine and Tool Co. (LMT) recently released what it believes is an improvement on the venerable AR-15 design, the LM8MRP. The LM8MRP is a direct gas impingement AR-15 with a 16-inch barrel that features the company's latest modular upper receiver or Monolithic Rail Platform (MRP).

Colt LE 901-16S Modular Carbine

September 20, 2012

The Colt LE901-16S is a very versatile direct impingement gas-operated carbine with a 16.1-inch barrel. It's commonly referred to as a "modular carbine" because users can easily transform it from a 7.62mm NATO caliber carbine to a 5.56mm M4 carbine.

Stag Arms 3G AR Rifle

August 28, 2012

Recently Stag introduced the 3G, a rifle developed for use in the rapidly growing three-gun competition market. This AR is also excellent for law enforcement operations. 

Why Officers Will Embrace S&W's M&P Shield

July 25, 2012
With its M&P Shield subcompact pistol, Smith & Wesson is revisiting a concept that once made history. The Shield hearkens back to the S&W Model 39, the first modern DA/SA pistol with a single column magazine and a thin grip.

Smith & Wesson M&P9 Shield Subcompact Pistol

July 24, 2012

Smith & Wesson's M&P9 Shield is a subcompact pistol suitable for "deep cover" carry by undercover and off-duty police officers. The Shield is available in either 9mm or .40 S&W.

Sturm, Ruger & Company Mini-14 Tactical Carbine

June 18, 2012

The accessory rail on the Ruger Tactical Model Mini-14 allows you to fit it with a high-quality optic. And that makes this rifle a much more effective tool for law enforcement operations and home defense.

LWRC International M6A2 Special Purpose Rifle

May 15, 2012

Whether you are delivering precision shot placement or dumping one magazine after another as fast as possible into a target, the mid-length piston-powered LWRCI M6A2 SPR will do the job.

Bersa BP 9 CC Pistol

April 19, 2012

It's likely that many American shooters have never heard of the Argentine firearms manufacturer Bersa, but I believe that is about to change. And with good reason.

Sturm, Ruger & Co. LC9 Sub-Compact Pistol

March 15, 2012

While Ruger's LCP proved popular with both civilians and law enforcement officers, there were those who felt that its .380 cartridge was a lower end choice for defensive purposes. To answer this criticism, Ruger developed the Light Compact 9 (LC9).

Ithaca M37 Shotgun and M1911 Pistol

February 7, 2012

Although it's best known today for its hunting weapons, Ithaca has produced firearms favored by the military and law enforcement for decades. The Ithaca Model 37 shotgun and M1911 handgun are two John Browning designs that have been carried in both World Wars and in numerous police operations.

Springfield Armory XD(m)-9 5.25 Pistol

January 10, 2012

Springfield recently introduced yet another version of the XD(m) designed for action pistol competition shooting, and I believe it is equally adaptable to law enforcement purposes. The XD(m)-9 5.25 was designed with the input of champion shooter Rob Leatham and is intended to give competitor shooters everything they need to compete right out of the box.

Daniel Defense v5 Lightweight M4 Carbine

December 16, 2011

The weight difference between the Daniel Defense v5 Lightweight and a standard M4 was immediately noticeable, nearly 10 ounces. That's a lot of weight if you have to work an operation for hours. The standard M4 has a short carbine railed forearm compared to the 12-inch mid length of the v5 Lightweight.

Kel-Tec KSG Shotgun

November 18, 2011

Most shooters' first impression of Kel-Tec's new KSG shotgun is that it looks like a weapon out of a video game or some sci-fi movie. But despite its unconventional bullpup design, I believe this innovative weapon will have a positive impact on the law enforcement community.

Kahr Arms CM9 Pistol

October 10, 2011

Kahr Arms' CM9 is a no-frills compact pistol. It's not as pretty as some of Kahr's other handguns, but it's a practical, inexpensive, quality gun.

FNH USA FNP-45 Tactical Pistol

September 19, 2011

The FNP-45 Tactical is the largest pistol in the FNH USA handgun line, and it offers just about everything a warrior needs in a big-bore fighting pistol.

Springfield Armory XD(M) 3.8 Pistols

August 19, 2011

As you probably have already noticed, the XD(m) 3.8 and the XD(m) 3.8 Compact get their names from their 3.8 inch-barrel, as opposed to the four-inch barrel standard on the original XD Pistols. The Compact designation is assigned to the 3.8 Pistol, which has the short "Compact/Sub Compact" style grip.

SIG Sauer P290 Subcompact Pistol

July 14, 2011

While at first the P290 appears to be a downsized version of the company's P250 Modular pistol, it is in fact a completely new and simpler design intended for one purpose alone: concealed carry. Accordingly SIG has reduced its dimensions to what might be considered the barest minimum for the 9mm Parabellum cartridge.

Sturm, Ruger & Co. SR1911 Pistol

June 7, 2011

I found the SR1911 to be a fitting example of a 1911 pistol. It was well built of first-class materials, and it displayed excellent ergonomics; above average accuracy; and reliability.
