    ACS – The Trigger Pouch

    I first checked out ACS’ Trigger Pouch at MiliPol while walking around with the guys from Knight’s Armamemnt. It is a PALS-mountable, quick-deployment device for grenades and distraction devices such as flashbangs, developed by two operatives from the Israeli elite counter terror unit YAMAM and manufactured by Advanced Combat Solutions. It secures the grenade or distraction device within its housing, where it can be quickly pulled away and deployed in one swift, fluid motion.

    The Trigger Pouch is currently available for the M67 frag grenade and CTS/CTI & Safariland Flashbangs, with other grenades.  Trey Knight got a sample which he plans on using during his next grenade throw day at the range.
