When I first travelled to parts elsewhere, I had a first aid pouch that held a field dressing and a cravat. Fast forward just a couple of years and everyone is carrying their own Improved First Aid Kit (IFAK) containing a tourniquet, combat gauze and other useful items in the event of a traumatic injury. The Ricci Ankle Medical System (AMS) holds the basics and keeps them close!
CBS “60 Minutes” recently went out with the Massachusetts State Police and got to film C3 tactics in action. From the community interaction to a kinetic SWAT warrant, individual components of C3 Policing were captured on film – and shows a community taking back it’s streets through communication, taking action, and a police force that listens. Watch the video and read the comments (very interesting)
After a long search without any success, a hard to find H&K UMP / P90 mag pouch landed in my lap (literaly). About a year or so ago, one of my friends who knew I was trying to find a way to carry my UMP mags traded of some peice of gear for the pouches featured in this review and gave them to me. I have been using them constantly ever since and wanted to briefly share my experience with them.
A few months ago I was issued one of the best pair of gloves I’ve used, the Outdoor Research Overlord. In the military, having a good pair of multifunction gloves that you can shoot with, that are durable, and that keep you warm in the winter and not too hot in the summer is imperative.
The SureFire E2D LED Defender Ultra is now available. It now produces 500 Lumens on its high setting, and still features a Crenellated Strike Bezel® for when 500 lumens is not enough.
The Strike Industries Tactical Battle Case SHOX for the Apple iPhone 5 is a serious contender to become my favorite low profile, tactical iPhone Case. The most prominent features are the finger loop, corner protection (with springs) and dust covers for every port. All in all, the Strike Industries SHOX Case for the Apple iPhone 5 has a ton of features that todays MIL/LE and sporting communities will love and is a serious challenger to the Magpul Industries iPhone 5 Field Case.
The CamelBak Tube Trap is one of of those inexpensive products that will pay for itself for years. Frankly I’m surprised it isn’t standard issue with all new packs.
For those of us that have experienced trying times in the military and law enforcement fields, the following can be quite disconcerting. Early this morning, I was on Drudge Report and encountered this article about how the Pentagon is considering preventing Christians from speaking openly about their faith in the military: Breitbart.com
Our band of Volunteer Firefighters and Tactical EMTs have put the Condor Summit Soft Shell Jacket to the test!
SureFire has just announced that it has upgraded its M300 Mini Scout Light from 110 lumens to 200 lumens. This is a big improvement as my M925v is 100 lumens and leaves a lot to be desired in the white light category (IR is outstanding which is why I use it).
Gripforce makes an easy to install “grip adapter” (read: beavertail). They have two models – one that fits the first, second and third generation glocks (Gen 123) and another that fits the fourth (Gen 4).
Upon first glance, the Tactical Tailor Fight Light system looks like any other kit you would buy from a high end, US made, gear manufacturer. It’s not until you pick it up that you realize that something revolutionary has taken place and you will never look at plate carriers the same way.
In 2002, The Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT) Center at Texas State University – San Marcos was created as a partnership between the Texas State University, the San Marcos Police Department and the Hays County Sheriff’s Office to address the need for active shooter response training for law enforcement.
We are super excited to announce that we have added a Gear Store to BlackSheepWarrior.com! We will be offering BlackSheepWarrior.com T-Shirts (lots of styles planned) as well as a handful of products that we believe should be in/on everyone’s kit. You can order with confidence as we have installed a
The Scorched Earth Combat shirt was designed with Military/Law Enforcement professionals in mind. It features a super lightweight 100% cotton ripstop shoulder/sleeve and moisture wicking body. The shirt is perfect for wearing armor in the summer heat, and you won’t want to take it off. On the downside, it suffers from a handful of small developmental issues that you will have to weigh before purchasing. But thats why we are here! Anyway, the Scorched Earth Combat Shirt is a great value, and you should pick one up (Scorched Earth is offering our readers a 50% discount, enter the promo code “blacksheep” at check out)! Note: We do not profit from your purchases, its just a good deal.
If you’re not lucky enough to enjoy a “flying armed” status as some of our contributors do, then you have been faced with having to check your sidearm, should you choose to carry, at your destination – even if you don’t plan on carrying when you visit Aunt Ethel in Des Moines. Maybe you’re just wanting to bring back the .44 Magnum you lent her last year so she could hunt wild boar. Whatever the need you find to fly with a pistol in your checked baggage, you’re going to have to play by the TSA’s rules.
After months of waiting, the Magpul iPhone 5 Field Case is finally available! Check out our detailed photo review and find out where it’s available!
In an endeavor to put Tactical Tailor’s “Fight Light” series of equipment to the test, we at Blacksheepwarrior.com decided to send an array of Fight Light (and regular Tactical Tailor equipment) on a TDY trip around the world.

The PT ALPHA Bump Helmet reviewed here was purchased several years back from the folks at Tactical Night Vision Company. The Helmet has served me well for years in a para-military role and, while it has its shortcomings, I think it offers a substantial value to law enforcement professionals who require a light-weight, affordable, platform to deploy their night vision capabilities.
