Smith & Wesson M&P15R

Smith & Wesson M&P15R

I'd like to discuss a somewhat unusual rifle choice that can help law enforcement agencies and individual officers realistically cope with the rising cost and shortage of .223/5.56 patrol rifle ammunition.

Optics vs. Iron Sights

Optics vs. Iron Sights

While the U.S. military has largely transitioned en masse to using optics on issued M4 carbines and other weapons, many American law enforcement agencies continue to use patrol rifles and carbines with iron sights and no optics. So the question is valid: Do you really need combat optics on your patrol rifle?

Smith & Wesson 327 TRR8 Revolver

The S&W 327 Tactical Rail Revolver is best suited to be used by the lead penetrator of a SWAT team, especially since this revolver carries as many rounds of ammunition as the average .45 ACP 1911.

I was really impressed with the 9mm model of the PPS. Its captive dual recoil spring and excellent ergonomics combine to make an extremely soft shooting pistol. In fact, it's the softest shooting subcompact pistol that I have ever tested.

Bushmaster Gas Piston Rifle

Sometimes operators and officers don't take care of their weapons like they should. That's why so many companies have been working on developing a cleaner M16/M4 design. And it's why Bushmaster recently developed the M4 variant that it calls the "Gas Piston Rifle."
