SHOT Show 2019: Industry Day at the Range

After stepping off the shuttle bus and into a dust storm, I determined that attempting to shoot any firearm long distance would be far more challenging than my novice rifle shooting skills could handle. I primarily stuck with handguns and short-range rifle shooting.

Desert Dog Regional Police K-9 Trials

Earlier this month, more than 70 police dog teams from local, state, and federal agencies participated in the 2018 Desert Dog Regional K-9 Police Trials in Mesa, AZ. The event was held at Sloan Park, the spring training camp to the Chicago Cubs. Law enforcement agencies from Arizona, California, and Mexico were represented. The K-9 competition, in which handlers and their dogs compete in various exercises and events to simulate real-life scenarios, is open to the public. Scenarios include: handler protection, tactical building search, building search, agility/obstacle course, area search, narcotics, and explosives search. Because the building, narcotics, and explosives searches must take place in controlled environments, these are not open to the public. The annual event is not funded by any public money. All costs associated with the event must be raised through donations, sales of program ad space, or vendor booth fees. If you or your business would like to become involved in supporting or sponsoring these trials, setting up a vendor booth, advertising in the program, entering a K-9 team, or sponsoring a K-9 team, contact Scott Calender at [email protected]

K-9 First Aid Basics Gallery

At a minimum, veterinarians recommend that K-9 handlers carry a first-aid kit, learn how to give injections, and know how to administer oxygen. A brief session with your veterinarian or even a vet tech should be sufficient to learn how to correctly give injections. Here are some photos to illustrate proper first-aid techniques. For more information about first aid that handlers should know, read the POLICE Magazine article K-9 First-Aid Kit Basics.

LAPD Responds to Southern California Wildfires

Officers of the Los Angeles Police Department have been responding to the area's rash of wildfires this week, serving a wide variety of missions. One of their missions has been to help animals trapped in the fire zones. Officers from the LAPD's equestrian unit helped rescue horses trapped in the massive Creek Fire in Sylmar. The Creek Fire started Tuesday morning and has destroyed at least 30 homes and burned nearly 11,500 acres. Within the city limits LAPD officers responded to the Skirbal Fire, which erupted early Wednesday morning next to the 405 freeway near Mulholland Drive. The Skirball fire has burned nearly 500 acres and destroyed four homes in Bel-Air. Neither fire is contained.
