Go to to enter, and stay tuned. There’s big news coming down the pike and if you’re a fan of America’s Rifle (the AR).

The Ghost just loves a good AR.


Additionally, Grey Ghost Gear is announcing that they’ll be offering rifles from other quality manufacturers besides Noveske, along with a few other things in the works. The above rifle, for example, is a precision AR10 that’s currently being tested and evaluated by a select group. Stay tuned for more info as it becomes available.

July 24th, 2014


Conceived by Chris Fry of MDTS Training and co-developed with and manufactured by Raven Concealment Systems, the ModuLoader Pocket Shield is a flexible, modular platform which allows an individual to carry a small defensive implement inside a front pants pocket without visible pocket clips for printing.

Made from a flexible, high-strength polymer, the Pocket Shield is designed to ride comfortably in the front pocket of most pants, providing consistent orientation within the pocket to facilitate quick access and deployment of a light, tool, or weapon.


The mounting slots on the Pocket Shield allows for any tool, knife, or light with a pocket clip. These slots can also accommodate virtually any small knife sheath or pocket holster from a wide variety of angles. The Pocket Shield can also be trimmed by the end user to facilitate a full fighting grip on a weapon or to better fit in smaller pockets.

The ModuLoader Pocket Shield is 100% US made. Available in Black and Grey.

    PPSS Group – New Ultra Tough Cell Extraction Vest Hits The Global Corrections Market

    July 23rd, 2014

    23rd July 2014 - PPSS Group claims to have now developed the world’s toughest Cell Extraction Vest, aiming to effectively protect corrections officers tasked with responding to riots, cell extractions, mass searches or major disturbances.

    PPSS Cell Extraction Vest

    Robert Kaiser, CEO of PPSS Group states: “PPSS Cell Extraction Vests are designed to offer the highest level of protection to those officers engaging with some of the most hostile, brutal and vicious human beings on this planet.”

    This latest high performance body armor is designed using rigid body moulded panels of a highly secretive material, tested in accordance to the stringent NIJ0115.00 Level III (stab + spike) standard, the highest possible stab resistance level.

    “The highlight is the exceptional level of blunt force trauma, in case the officer is assaulted by a kick or punch, or by an attacker striking with any item, such as fire extinguisher, chair, table, bricks, gym weight or snooker balls etc.” Robert Kaiser continues.

    “PPSS Cell Extraction Vests offer the maximum level of protection around the entire upper body, extended neck area, shoulders and groin also offering the highest level of maneuverability”.

    This year’s ACA Conference will see the global launch of this new ground-breaking body armor at the Salt Lake City Convention Centre on the 16th August 2014, booth #424.
