Safariland Introduces the PROTECH Hi-Viz Shield and DT206C Stand-Alone Type III Plate

January 22nd, 2019

Shield provides transparent view eliminating blind spotsCost-effective, lightweight plate stops threatening M855/SS1109 green tip rounds

Safariland Protech_Hi Viz Shield_Back (002)ONTARIO, California – The Safariland Group, a leading global provider of safety and survivability products designed for the public safety, military, professional and outdoor markets, today announced two new Safariland hard armor products – the PROTECH® Tactical Hi-Viz Shield – a clear type IIIA shield offering see-through visibility for the officer – and a 1.2” thin PROTECH DT206C stand-alone type III hard armor plate for stopping the most prevalent rifle rounds on the market.

“We’re continually working to offer innovative and essential products for law enforcement professionals, said Todd Mackler, vice president hard armor for Safariland. The Hi-Viz Shield offers life-saving ballistic coverage by providing maximum visibility, critical when approaching blind spots such as vehicle windows, doors and searching attics. The DT206C plate offers thinness in a price-competitive product and has the capacity to stop M855 Green Tip rounds, which many type III plates can’t stop.”

Safariland’s Hi-Viz Shield models are made of a polycarbonate composite for clear visibility and allow officers to see threats from a wide perspective vs. a small viewport. NIJ 0108.01 compliant, the Hi-Viz Shield provides ballistic coverage for the critical head, neck and upper chest area and stops 9mm and .44 Magnum LSWCGC rounds for five impacts. The design features a corner radius and is equipped with ambidextrous horizontal grips. When light is needed, it can accept an optional Foxfury® Taker R40 Riot Shield Light sold by Safariland.

The Hi-Viz Shield is offered in three sizes/cuts: 1224, 1224T (both 12” x 24” at a MSRP of $1,100 each) and 924 (9” x 24” at a MSRP of $950) and is available February. MSRP and availability for the Foxfury Taker R40 Riot Shield Light will also be February.

The DT206C plate is a high-performing, lightweight, type III stand-alone plate, effective even against the increasingly common M855 Green Tip (SS109) round. Competitively priced, the DT206C plate is made from a ceramic/PE composite, has a multi-curve design and is just 1.2” thin. A NIJ 0101.06 type III certified plate, the DT206C can defeat six rounds of the most prevalent ammunition on the market including the M80, MSC, M193 and the M855 Green Tip (SS1109). It comes in a variety of sizes which include:

– 8.75” x 11.75” SAPI Small (MSRP: $520)
– 9.5” x 12.5” SAPI Medium (MSRP: $530)
– 10.25” x 13.25” SAPI Large (MSRP: $580)
– 11” x 14” SAPI X-Large (MSRP: $690)
– 10” x 12” Shooters (MSRP: $530)
– 8” x 10” Rectangle (MSRP: $400)
– 6” x 6” Rectangle (MSRP: $270)

The Hi-Viz Shield and DT206C stand-alone plate will be on display at The Safariland Group booth, #12762, throughout SHOT Show 2019 from January 22-25. For more information, please visit www.safariland.com/safariland-body-armor.

Black Aces Tactical announces shipment of the $449 Pro Series S Shockwave Semiautomatic

January 22nd, 2019

Black Aces Tactical (BAT), a veteran owned American manufacturer, is proud to announce the shipment of the long awaited and much talked about Pro Series S Shockwave Semi. 

Said Black Aces Tactical, “At the heart of the Pro Series S Shockwave Semi is a billet receiver produced local to central Florida combining the latest technology and most talented engineers.  We spent extra time to ensure our parameters were met so the customer receives the best weapon that we can produce.”


·              No NFA/No AOW

·              6061 T6 Aluminum Receiver

·              14″ Barrel

·              26.5″ Overall Length

·              Choice of Black Synthetic and optional Walnut Furniture

·              Mossberg rear flange and top drill/tap pattern

·              4+1 capacity

·              Cycles both light and heavy loads

“We took our time on this receiver”, said Black Aces Tactical.  “The fit and finish are very important to Black Aces Tactical.  When a customer opens the box for the first time, they have to be excited about what they see.  For instance, the grip perfectly mates to the billet receiver and gives the weapon a beautiful form. These are the little things that we focus on as we manufacture. Also, due to import restrictions, having a “firearm other” classification automatically means that the receiver itself has to be manufactured in America. This gave us the opportunity to make it right from the start.”.

FirstSpear Range Day 19 – Aimpoint ACRO P-1 Optic

January 21st, 2019

Today was my first chance to shoot with the Aimpoint ACRO P-1 red dot sight for pistols. ACRO stands for Advanced Compact Reflex Optic. Product testing included shock, vibration, temperature span and other environmental stress including 20,000 rounds mounted to a .40 pistol slide.

I found the 3.5 MOA dot easy to acquire and intensity is adjustable via the side mounted buttons. Expect a year’s life from the CR1225.
