LA Police Gear – Atlas Tactical Christmas Stocking

Friday, October 18th, 2019

Yeah, it’s not even Halloween yet, but on the other hand why wait until just after Thanksgiving to start prepping for the Christmas season? And a great, tactically-inclined way to do it is with LA Police Gear’s Atlas Tactical Christmas Stocking. An evolution of the MOLLE Elite Tactical Christmas Stocking, the Atlas features laser-cut webbing for attaching various external stocking stuffers, and a 6.5″ x 3″ Velcro loop panel for patches or name tapes. Plus, the external 3″ x 2″ x .5″ and dual 3.5″ x 1.5″ x .5″ offer even more carrying capacity, if the internal space and webbing isn’t enough.

Available in Black, Coyote, and OD Green.

The New Broco Rapid Deploy Ballistic Protection Sport Backpack Armor Plate Protection Available for Everyone — Now at Special Pre-Holiday Pricing

Saturday, September 21st, 2019

Broco Rankin

ONTARIO, Calif., Sept. 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Armor plate protection is now available for everyone at pre-holiday promotional pricing. Broco, Inc.’s new Rapid Deploy Ballistic Protection Sport Backpack looks like an ordinary backpack except this one has two hidden body armor plates – one in the back and another that deploys in seconds to cover the front – to provide ballistic protection in case of an emergency.

The Broco Rapid Deploy Ballistic Protection Sport Backpack is designed for civilians, including teachers, students, parents, coaches, family and friends, as well as law enforcement and military. It is lightweight yet strong and deploys quickly. The removable soft armor plates are NIJ 0101.06 certified level IIIA (handgun) and weigh 1.1 lbs. each. Stronger hard armor plates that are NIJ certified level III (rifle) and weighing 3.3 lbs. each also are available for purchase.

“We wanted to deliver something new to the bulletproof backpack market that would benefit everyone,” said Richard Ferry, president of Broco Rankin. “The Broco backpack does that with two armor plates instead of just one. We made it lightweight and strong for everyday people based on our experience with the tactical tools and gear we provide to first responders.”

The rapid deploy feature is quick and easy. In the event of an emergency, pull the quick release cord on the shoulder strap to separate the two compartments and pull one over the head. The result is bulletproof protection over vital body parts on both front and back. The civilian model is available in blue, gray, maroon or black. The tactical model comes in tan or black with a molle system or laser cut, and can be ordered without the Broco logo for more discrete protection.

“We initially created the Rapid Deploy Backpack for our first responder and military customers. Then we decided that it was versatile enough to protect anyone in a public place,” concluded Ferry.

Broco Tactical is part of the Broco Rankin family of companies based in Ontario, California. In addition to tactical and forced entry products, Broco, Inc. designs and manufactures underwater cutting and welding equipment, and industrial exothermic Broco Rankin cutting and welding systems. Rankin Hardfacing, PMA Protective Metal Alloys, and Chamberlain Security are part of Rankin Industries which designs and manufactures buildup, hardfacing and specialty nickel alloy products.

Redpath Nations Ahegao Plate Carrier

Tuesday, July 2nd, 2019

Now here’s something you don’t see every day.

Jesse Redpath is making these carriers from a rather unorthodox pattern. Once you know the story behind the vest, it makes sense.

The idea came from a /k/ thread. This /k/arrier uses a combination of 500D Cordura and nylon with a ahegao print.

Foam padding is used on the user-facing side of the platebags for increased user comfort. Shoulder strap placement has been changed to be even wider for decreased neck discomfort along with ITW G-hooks being used in place of the conventional sewn in shoulder straps, allowing for servicing and customization of the straps. The front platebag includes a removable kangaroo placard attached by two QASM buckles. The kangaroo placard is lined with hook and loop to allow the insertion of magazine retention inserts. Also included with the carrier is a elastic cummerbund with magazine carrying capacity (3 magazines per side). The magazine slots on the cummerbund are sized to accept both 7.62 and 5.56 magazines.

Magna Tactics Launches Web Store For USA Made EDC Gun Belts

Wednesday, October 25th, 2017

Bellingham, WA

www.magnatactics.com

Magna Tactics, a US-based start-up company operating out of the Pacific Northwest, is setting a new standard of tactical gun belts using a unique buckle design that is focused around a proprietary magnetic latch. Dissatisfied with the comfort vs. performance compromises associated with typical gun belts, owner and founder Mike Howe set out on a quest to develop a better gun belt, one that satisfies the needs of CCW users, yet doesn’t sacrifice the comfort of a standard belt.

With the carefully procured high quality webbing used in this belt, the single layer belt is more than sufficient for a vast majority of peoples EDC needs. While they are currently prototyping a double thick belt, the double thick would only be necessary for those who do competition shooting and carry more gear than you typically would in most scenarios.

Magna Tactics ran a successful Kickstarter campaign for their new magnetic latching gun belt, called the Magna Belt back in July. Now after manufacturing and delivering all of their belts to their enthusiastic Kickstarter supporters, they are proud to now launch their web store, offering this innovative gun belt to the general public. They are also offering an introductory offer of 10% off of your entire purchase for new customers using the coupon code: BELTFORLIFE

The Magna Belt features:

  • Fast magnetic latch – Housed in durable anodized, hard coated 6061 aluminum, the high tech Polymagnets used in this belt have a stronger, faster, and more accurate alignment than any other magnets available.
  • Slim buckle design – Unlike most tactical belts, this buckle fits through standard belt loops, slide the belt in and out of any pants without ever changing the adjustment size.
  • Pivoting latch – A small range of motion has been designed in to help the belt move with you for comfort.
  • Single size – No need to worry about picking the wrong size, simply cut to length, and adjust to size.
  • One-time adjustment – Stays adjusted to the size you pick until you want to change it.
  • Tail tucked, or tail out – The Magna Belt offers the option of tucking the belt tail inside, or outside, without sacrificing any strength of the belt in either configuration.
  • Berry Amendment Compliant – Using USA made MIL-SPEC webbing (1.5”) and thread.
  • Proudly Made in the USA
  • Lifetime Warranty – Because it’s built to last, we offer a lifetime warranty against any manufacturing defects that affect your belts function or quality.
  • The belt is also offered in a variety of color options for when you want to keep it sleek, or get flashy. The colored buckle plates are interchangeable, allowing you to purchase additional plates and swap them to suit any mood or occasion.
