I was impressed with the Pro Sights. The front sight was fast and easy to pick up and allowed for accurate delivery of shots at ranges from three to 50 yards. Simply put, these sights are damn fine.
Overall I found the TLR-3 to be a fine light. With its interchangeable locking plates it is one of the most versatile weapon-mounted lights on the market.
DeSantis' Cozy Partner is a strong side, inside the waistband holster with a tension screw at the rear of the trigger guard. The tension screw and your belt riding over the outboard side of the holster will keep your pistol in place.
These 10 Zero gloves kept my coworkers' hands warm in cold conditions did not overheat or make their hands sweat in warmer conditions.
The S2Vs did not disappoint me. They were comfortable on the mixed hard surfaces I wore them on. And since we were in the freeze thaw of February, I was able to see how slip resistant the soles were.
Although the folks at BlackHawk do not promote their Warrior Wear Operations Jacket for covert operations, after months of use, I have found it to be one of the finest quality overt/covert jackets I have ever owned.
Imagine one item that can be deployed as a bomb blanket, a ballistic shield, and a litter for moving the wounded, just for starters. Protective Products International's Multi-Functional Armor Blanket (MFAB) does all this and more.
I have found the lights from Streamlight to be easy to operate, durable, and innovative, as well as affordably priced. The company's TLR-1 is no exception.
Today, agencies are transitioning to uniforms that serve more than one function. The Force Special Ops Cargo pants are a fine example of pants that can multi-task.
Uniforms aren't known for making fashion statements, but ideally they should be both comfortable and professional looking. With its Ladies Choice design, Elbeco feels it has finally created women's trousers to meet both of these criteria.
With all of the gear we carry on our duty belts, what we don't need is yet another bulky tool to add more weight and take up more space. The Hawkhook is one piece of gear that is small but mighty.
