Blackhawk Releases Level 2 Compact (L2C) Version of New T-Series Holster

July 16th, 2019

Blackhawk has spent the past several years behind closed doors in their Bozeman (MT) facility taking their attention to detail and quality engineering to an even higher level to create their new line of duty-rated holsters: The T-Series™. The latest evolution in this line is a Level 2 Compact (L2C) version that combines the durability and sturdiness of the L2D and L3D versions with a streamlined and concealable form.

The T-Series family of holsters follows Blackhawk’s Master Grip Principle, meaning the holster encourages the user’s hand to naturally land exactly where it should in order to deploy their sidearm. This efficient movement pairs with a sound-dampening, low-friction, dual-density internal material for a fast, smooth, quiet, and effortless draw while the external proprietary glass-reinforced nylon provides the highest degree of durability.

Key points that set the T-Series L2C apart from the rest of the T-Series family is that it is RMR-compatible, features a speed cut for a faster draw, and has a low-profile design for ease of concealment. While this holster has a smaller overall profile, that in no way means a sacrifice in durability – the L2C is still duty rated, just like the L2D and L3D versions.

The T-Series L2C comes with an all-new attachment method called the Quick Dual Release, or QDR. This attachment method features an intuitive button release that allows easy attachment to and removal from a belt without the need for weaving through loops. The QDR can accommodate belts ranging from 1.5” to 2.25” and allows the holster to cant at various positions depending on user preference.

Users will also enjoy the included 2-Slot Belt Loop attachment method that comes standard with the L2C.

The asymmetrical design of the loop attachment tucks the grip of the pistol toward the body for better concealment and less interference with daily tasks.

July 16th, 2019

TORN Warriors is a nonprofit for Disabled Veterans that helps empower them through off-road driving/racing (SxS, Motorcycles, and Trucks) and shooting events. Torn Warriors Foundation is launching its first Summer Fundraiser this month with the intent to get include some Vets and raise funds for their inaugural race in August.

Their inaugural fundraiser kicks off July 27th with a two-day shooting and riding event for disabled veterans and wounded service members at the TORN Facility in northeast Nevada. This event is provided at NO COST to those wounded in defense of our country. 

On the evening of July 27, they are holding a raffle to offset the costs associated with the above events. They have been overwhelmed by the generosity of our military-community businesses and disabled veterans who have donated items for raffle. Each $100 donation provides a chance to win prizes such as firearms, knives, and veteran-made items.

They appreciate your generosity in their efforts to provide disabled veterans and wounded service members a sense of normalcy and pride participating and enjoying sports and events previously unavailable to them due to injury. 

This year, they are hoping to raise $30,000 to cover the costs of the event as well as their first professional race–Best In The Desert’s Vegas to Reno Aug 16-18. The driver will be Curt Caruso, a 25-year veteran of the USMC; the navigator will be double-amputee Clint Trial.

MSGT Trial was wounded in action running combat operations in Afghanistan January of this year.

Point Blank Enterprises Announces Reserve and Auxiliary Officers Can Now Upgrade Their Armor Protection Through the National Reserve Officer Program

July 15th, 2019

POMPANO BEACH, Fla., July 15, 2019 — Point Blank Enterprises (“PBE”), the worldwide leader in the production of soft body armor and related protective solutions announces a program for Reserve and Auxiliary law enforcement officers to purchase soft body armor, rifle protection plates and complete active shooter kits at deeply discounted prices, directly through the National Reserve Officer Program.

The body armor systems available through Point Blank’s National Reserve Officer Program meet the company’s stringent quality control standards and have the standard 5 year ballistic warranty from the time of purchase. The program includes a variety of ballistic systems including select NIJ .06 Level IIA, II, and IIIA models. Now, with the addition of hard armor plates, Reserve and Auxiliary officers can enhance the protective capabilities of their body armor and have access to more options than ever before.

“Many reserve and auxiliary officers receive equipment from their policing agency, including body armor.  But, many reserves and auxiliaries are required to purchase at least some of their own gear,” said Dr. Ross Wolf, president of the Volunteer Law Enforcement Officer Alliance.  “This National Reserve Officer Program through Point Blank allows volunteers and part time police to have access to the protective gear that is necessary to perform their important role in communities.”  

“The success of this program allows us to now expand the offerings to include hard armor plates and associated carriers,” stated Hoyt Schmidt, Executive Vice President of Commercial Sales at Point Blank Enterprises. “We conceived this program with the goal of ensuring that every reserve officer has access to the best protective armor solutions in the industry so that they can perform their function as effectively and safely as possible.”

In order to qualify for the program, Reserve Officers can visit the Point Blank website at www.pointblankenterprises.com/rop and sign up to initiate the verification process. The simple purchasing process allows officers to select their desired NIJ .06 threat level, ballistic model, appropriate size and carrier color (black or navy). Upon placing their order, the Reserve Officer can expect delivery in 10 business days, if not sooner.
