Head On Tactical Shotgun Shell Pouch

Head Down Shotgun Pouch

I just stumbled across a small company called Head On Tactical that is making a variety of pouches, bags and carriers for all of your tactical needs.  They have a bunch of cool looking products in MultiCam, A-TACS, plus the more “pedestrian” coyote, black and Ranger green.

One of the products I think is really innovative is the Vessel Pursuit Shotgun Pouch they developed with the guys at MARSEC4.  The pouch compactly holds 24 shotgun shells and divides them up with color-coded pulls to more easily distinguish between two different rounds like slugs and buckshot.

HK45 Tactical

HK45 Tactical Suppressor

HK announced the introduction of the HK45 Tactical to the civilian market.  It looks like you will be able to get them in all sorts of tactical colors and with a threaded barrel.

Probably the oddest thing about this product announcement is that the HK45 Tactical is shown in a photograph with a “dummy” sound suppressor and is captioned “depiction of suppressor does not constitute endorsement.”  Huh?  Do they not endorse the use of eye protection either?

Ruger Mini-30 Tactical

Mini Thirty Tactical rifle

Ruger announced the new Mini Thirty Tactical rifle today.  Chambered in the 7.62×39 cartridge, the new Mini-30 has a 16 1/8″ barrel, synthetic stock, ghost ring sights, and flash suppressor.  The Tactical ships with one 20-round magazine for this rifle.

Ruger machined scope bases into the receiver, and includes a set of scope rings.  This makes things a lot easier for a shooter who wants to add a scope or other optic to the rifle.  The 7.62×39 cartridge is certainly capable of taking medium sized game, and dropping a nice Leupold scope on top of this will give you good accuracy for taking that white tail.

Compared to the standard Mini Thirty, the Tactical has a barrel that is almost 2.5″ shorter.  This makes the gun a little handier for moving around, which could be useful in a home defense situation or if the Brits ever come to collect back taxes (that might be closer than you think, by the way…)

CZ P-07 Tactical Prototype Pistol

cz_p07_tan_01

At the 2010 SHOT Show, CZ showed a concept pistol that the company may begin selling later this year.  The pistol is a tactical version of the P-07 Duty pistol that is, as yet, not named.  (Ed. note:  Scroll down to the update for more information on this pistol.)

The pistol is chambered in 9mm, and will feature a threaded barrel for the addition of a sound suppressor.  Suppressed models will have elevated sights.  The new P-07 has a tan polymer frame, but other colors (OD, foliage green, flat dark earth, scorched earth, etc.) may be offered.

5.11 Casual Belt Review: Quality Gun Belt at Reasonable Price

511 gun belt review

Looking for a quality gun belt for concealed carry, but don’t want to spend a fortune?  5.11 may have just what you are looking for.

Available in brown and black, the 5.11 Leather Casual Belt offers a sturdy platform to attach your holster to, while keeping a casual or dress-down appearance.  The 5.11 belt has a simple, yet attractive buckle and the leather looks good.  Most importantly, it has a stiff, reinforced piece that runs on the inside of the entire belt that makes this an excellent belt for concealed carry.

I purchased my 5.11 Leather Casual Belt three months ago and have been very pleased.  It looks good with jeans, cargo shorts, or Dockers-style pants. The best part is, it has carried all of my handguns in a wide variety of holsters very well.  The 5.11 belt doesn’t shift around, rather, it anchors the holster right where you want it.

The 5.11 belt has a small pocket on the inside of it that can hold a handcuff key or something else that is very small.  I don’t know if this will be of value to many people, but it does not interfere with the belt’s normal use.
