The Raine Inc. General Purpose Plate Carrier is a light weight kit with top loading zippered plate pockets and low profile, shoulder straps. The kit is made by a company that still focuses on the end user and all in all, it has become my “go to” kit for everyday use.
One of our law enforcement contributors, Tin Man, reviews his Palmetto State Armory PA-15 rifle with accessories. The accessories which have been placed on the rifle include a Midwest Industries Gen 2 SS-Series Free Float Handguard, an Aimpoint Patrol Rifle Optic, a B5 Systems SOPMOD Stock, a Surefire X300 weapon light, a Black Weapons Armory X-Comp comepnsator, and various Magpul pieces.
So, no joke, there I was on the deployment list for Afghanistan. I did what every cherry (to combat, that is) does and started flipping through catalogs and cruising every tactical website I could find. I happened upon the InForce WML White/IR and was drawn to it by its size and weight and the fact that it had an intigrated mount and pressure switch for a relatively low price of around $150 depending on where you go.
Having been in the profession of arms my entire adult life, I have been exposed to multiple books, seminars, speeches, and other various training regarding dealing with stress and being able to remain a fully functional member of society and family despite the stressful career that I have chosen. After reading Kevin Gilmartin’s book, “Emotional Survival for the Law Enforcement Officer”, I find that his findings and advice are right in line with other training I have received and if followed, will help young officers effectively deal with the stresses encountered with the career they have chosen in law enforcement and allow them to be content with their personal and professional lives.
So I was on the market for a new pistol light as the current one i run on duty was a little out dated. Don’t get me wrong, I have zero complaints about the Streamlight TLR1. I have had the same light issued to me for the past seven years. This is truly a reliable piece of equipment, but I was looking for a brighter light to rely on from clearing rooms for violent suspects, to chasing the drug runners along the US/Mexican border.
Quick and easy take on the Tactical Tailor 5.56 Double Mag Panel. I rocked these pouches on a daily basis and I must say, very pleased. Tactical Tailor, as always produces top quality gear. I ran the 5.56 Double Mag Panel on my active shooter carrier, which I deployed as much as I could on calls “out in the sticks.”
The Team Wendy EXFIL CARBON Bump Helmet represents the first true developmental breakthrough in tactical bump helmets and features a carbon fiber shell with state of the art helmet liner technology. The Magpul MOE rails and a custom Wilcox Mount are the icing on the cake! Those who have worn bump helmets in the line of duty will instantly fall in love with the EXFIL CARBON.
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.
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.
Camelbak Talon Assault Pack Review By Will If you read the Spyderco G-10 Military knife review, then you will remember that I mentioned buying a lot of tactical gear in preparation for Hurricane Katrina (Wasn’t that a mess!). Well, the Camelbak Talon Assault Pack was one of those items that has paid for itself over an over …
Targets are important tools, and when used correctly, can greatly aid your marksmanship and improve your combat effectiveness. Using other training aids, like steel targets, also aids in training. There is a time and place for all types of targets. From bulls-eyes to real-imagery shoot/no-shoot targets. From different shapes to Zombie targets, they all have a place in quality training.
Every once in a while through life, (Hopefully), your hands do something while your brain screams “Don’t do that you know its stupid and”……to late you just did it. Yea that was me a few years back while attempting to fit a Midwest Industries quad rail on a Colt LE carbine (Now I run Knights Armament rails). Unfortunately the victim of my carelessness was the blade tip of my Spyderco Military G-10 combat folder.
