Matt Rosefsky, an instructor of MEDIC and SOLO, has started a project on the crowdfunding platform Tilt for a ‘Medic in your Wallet’. The finalized product will be a waterproof, tearproof foldout card, roughly the size and shape of a credit card (when stowed). It will fold out accordion-style, and feature the treatment steps for 48 individual topics, for review or to pull out when needed. Matt is a great instructor. My sons and I took a Wilderness First-Aid course from him a couple of years ago.
This sneak peek photo of the new 120 Liter Assaulter Sustainment Pack from Huron Tactical, was captured this week during CANSEC in Ottawa, Canada. It offers the same features as the mid-sized 68 liter pack. Coming 15 June, 2015 from www.TYRtactical.com.
Nikon has just introduced the new P-308 4-12×40 BDC 800 rifle scope. It features a 4-12 magnification, a 40mm objective, fully multicoated lenses, and the BDC 800 reticle; the BDC 800 reticle was engineered for a .308 win/7.62x51mm NATO round with a 168-grain HBT Match bullet at 2680 fps.
The P-308 also features spring-loaded, Instant Zero-Reset Turrets with easy-grip course knurling, making in-field adjustments easier by allowing shooters to reset their turrets back to zero after sighting-in. The P-308 is also waterproof, fogproof, and shockproof.
The P-308 is also optimized for use with Spot On Ballistic Match Technology. The Spot On program provides users with the exact aiming points on any BDC reticle for any load or ammunition at a specific range. Spot On is free online at nikonsportoptics.com/SpotOn, but is also available for mobile devices and can be purchased for iOS and Android.
SIG SAUER conducted a test to failure of their 3D printed machine gun suppressor for a US Government client. Using a MK48 outfitted with this SIG prototype machine gun suppressor, they continuously fired the gun with just reloading time between belts. Look at how hot the suppressor gets right before the test ends just shy of five belts. The Orange color denotes a temperature of 1500 – 1700 deg F.
Below, is the suppressor from the test which you can see suffered a failure.

Earlier this week we posted a story that challenged industry to offer new police equipment. S.O.Tech has been working on some things so we thought we’d share.
S.O.Tech’s Taser holster Speed Clip System is part of a shift in the law enforcement paradigm. We are witnessing the proliferation of less lethal Taser systems in law enforcement and a shift in public perceptions. When LAPD originally queried SOTech to design an upgraded version of its venerable Taser holster design, the discussion was for a few hundred holsters. After a year, this expanded to an order of 2,330 holsters as part of a contract extendable to 5 years and covering sales to LA Sheriffs Department too. We believe that we are witnessing a paradigm shift from a public expectation that police officers would have a badge and a gun. The new paradigm will be a badge, a gun and a Taser device. S.O.Tech recently delivered 800 Taser holsters to LASD. Be on the lookout for new Taser carriage designs from S.O.Tech in coming months!
Also a sign of the times, S.O.Tech designed the pouches in the Speed Clip line to have a military-inspired functionality but a law enforcement professional appearance. Flaps have minimal external stitch work and foam lining for a clean appearance in addition to a highly modular mounting system that quickly attaches to the belt, thigh or MOLLE vest is a matter of seconds. The unique design incorporates S.O.Tech’s patented ambidextrous flapped design that promotes weapon retention and prevents mistaken weapon identity.
The video announces the three stages of S.O.Tech’s modular law enforcement system: the fixed gun belt, Speed Clip line, and Suit Up line of civil disobedience and assault vest gear. S.O.Tech has been developing this systematic approach since the company’s beginnings in 1997 when LAPD and LASD officers and deputies presented the need for modular response systems.
