Armored Nutshellz

Chris Tran Reviews the Armored Nutshellz

Without devolving into juvenile jokes as I typically would do, there is verified applicability to this. Military, professional door kickers, law enforcement entry teams all report incidents of team members taking fire upon entry as a reality of their profession – wouldn’t it stand to reason that of all things to have protected, the groin would and should be one of them?

Ergo Grip

ERGO Grip 2 M4 Grip Review

The Ergo Grip 2 features an A2 sized inner cavity compatible with many accessories including the CAT M4 cleaning tool. It fits both .556 and .308 platforms without spacers and features an ergonomic fit that will inspire confidence and let you focus on more important tasks. The rubber texture provides a solid grip that you will feel even with gloves. Add in a material that Ergo Grip claims is “Virtually impervious to oils and solvents” and you have a solid M4/AR grip that you will be hard pressed to find fault with.

Palmetto State Armory PA-15 - Review

Truckers Friend Multipurpose Battle Axe Review

When I got the Trucker’s Friend in the mail, our senior editor kept referring to it as my “battleaxe”. There really is an aggressive “I’ll split your skull, sonny” look to it. In fact, in part of the literature Innovation Factory mentions one of the uses as self-defense. I know I would think twice about taking on someone armed with something that looked like it could decapitate you and build a tree-house afterwards.

InForce WML Review

InForce WML White/IR Weapon Light Review

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.

Emotional Survival for Law Enforcement

Emotional Survival for Law Enforcement – Book Review

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.

Streamlight TLR1 HL Review

Streamlight TLR1 HL (High Lumen) Review

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.

Ricci Ankle Medical System (AMS) Review

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!

Tactical Tailor UMP/P90 Double Mag Pouch Review

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.
