SIG SAUER P210 Legend

Arguably the finest service pistol ever made, the original SIG SAUER P210 is a legend in its own right. Capable of shooting a 1″ group at 50 yards, the pistol is highly sought after by target shooters around the world. For more than 25 years, the future has looked bleak for the P210 after production ceased in 1985. But not anymore.

Taurus CT G2 Carbine

Taurus has its first entry into the handgun caliber carbine market with the CT G2. Available in 9mm, .40 S&W, and .45 ACP, the carbine from Taurus includes a full length Picatinny rail for mounting optics or other accessories, an adjustable rear and fixed front sight and an ambidextrous magazine slide release.

MultiCam Pattern Camouflage

MultiCam was developed by Crye Precision as a universal camouflage adaptable to a wide variety of environments. The reflective nature of the pattern causes it to change apparent color depending on the surrounding environment. Special fabrics and coatings help it blend in under various lighting conditions across both the visible and IR spectrums. The infrared spectrum camouflage makes this pattern effective even when viewed with night vision equipment.

Pick of key items you can carry on you to create an emergency survival kit:

What We Carry

When it comes to preparedness, the items you carry in your pockets or somewhere on you (such as in a briefcase or backpack) are essentially a “bare bones” survival kit.

Taurus 8-Round Magazine

1911 Magazines

The 1911 is without a doubt one of the most popular pistols in the country. Its longevity is a testament to the genius of its design.  Subtle improvements have been made to John Moses Browning’s iconic design, and it still suffers from one weak spot—the magazine.

Paddle Holsters

Paddle holsters are very popular due to the comfort and the ease with which you can take them on and off, and they do have drawbacks. Paddle holsters rely on friction between the paddle and your pants and undergarments to remain in place.

Handgun Safeties

Since the invention of the first commercially usable autoloading handgun, the P08 Luger designed by Georg Luger, handgun safeties have been a common part of handgun design. The purpose of a safety mechanism on pistols is to prevent the handgun from firing when you don’t want it to.

Old Reliable: The Beretta 92

The Beretta 92 series has gone through a lot of changes in its service life with the U.S. military.  First introduced in the ’80s, it met with tremendous resistance from die hard aficionados of the 1911 it was replacing. The Beretta M9 was the pistol I qualified with, and it was also my very first carry gun when I got my Indiana LTC.
