SHOT Show 2017 Part One

SHOT show 2017 kicked off like every other show I’ve attended…  chaos thinly disguised as enthusiasm in multicam. Notable products part one: BE Meyers MAWL: Got hands on with the MAWL for the first time. It’s all it’s been made out to be and more. The IR designator/illuminator market just got turned on its head… read more »

Evolutions In Outfitting The Modern Police Officer

I have worked within law enforcement (LE) since the last century. I  have worked with leadership that recognized the importance of officer safety and enacted proactive polices which maximized police effectiveness through modern equipment and training.  Currently, police officers do everything from teaching classes in elementary schools to direct combat with terrorist forces.  As a… read more »

Leading Fighting Men

This is one man’s musings, and over the course of my career they are things that I wanted from my leaders. As such, I have tried hard to be that guy as a current leader. This is meant for discussion, not as a how to guide. One of my greatest strengths as a leader is… read more »

Night Vision Quick Focus Caps

Using NVG’s for a multitude of Law Enforcement tasks presents some challenges from typical white light jobs. One of those challenges is that the NVG is focused at a given distance, typically at infinity. The problem with this is when you need to see or examine something at close range. This requires that the NVG… read more »

Knock & Announce

I was recently in a class where a discussion about “No knock” and “Knock & Announce” (K&A) warrant service was discussed.

This phrase usually is in a discussion where someone is defending a poor choice and trying to make someone else feel better about their poor choice. Let’s discuss the copout of… read more »

Tactical Tailor Tahoma Tote Rucksack Review

Author’s note: This pack appears to have been renamed the “RR2600 Assault Malice Pack” according to Tactical Tailor’s website. There appear to be no differences according to their descriptions and display images, however this has not been confirmed by Tactical Tailor as of the time of this publishing.  There’s no place like home, and if… read more »

Main Gun Coffee Company: First Sergeant Blend

Been sampling the Main Gun Coffee Company First Sergeant blend. I like it. It’s a darker roast than the Belt Fed (I’d call it a medium roast, it’s not a dark roast, but darker than the Belt Fed), with a light body, and mild cacao and red wine notes. Being a darker roast, you taste… read more »

SWAT Team Leader Course & Vetting Entities…

I am teaching another Team Leader course in a few weeks. During the course of a year and with different topics being taught, I invariably get asked whether my course is “certified” by a specific entity. One of the reasons I started a training company was because I felt like a lot of courses that… read more »
