SureFire Field Notes Ep 34: Processor Speed, with John Chapman

Friday, October 5th, 2018

SureFire Field Notes is a multi-segment informational video series with tips and techniques from subject matter experts of all backgrounds. In this episode, John “Chappy” Chapman of Forge Tactical discusses processor speed.

Born and raised in the tony suburbs of Sacramento, California, John Chapman (Chappy) joined the Navy at 18.  After an enlistment served on the USS Memphis, Chappy returned home to Northern California and embarked on a law enforcement career while attending college. After 16 years of service spanning 4 agencies, with service in Patrol, SWAT, Investigations, Training and Administration, Chappy left full time Police service and began training police officers full time in 2008. A police firearms and tactics instructor since 1994, Chappy founded LMS Defense as a part time private venture in 2006; and with the help of an amazing team built LMS into a full time venture by 2008.  After serving in Iraq as security specialist, Chappy returned to LMS full time and spent the next 5 years servicing domestic and international police and government training requirements, and consulting SWAT teams in Procedural Issues and Equipment Acquisition.  In 2009, Chappy also became a part time adjunct instructor for EAG Tactical, working for his mentor and friend, Pat Rogers.  It was through Pat’s mentorship and guidance that Chappy developed his skills as a teacher to the level of becoming a BCM Gunfighter.

Best known as a SWAT and Night Vision Instructor, Chappy continues to teach, now exclusively for Forge Tactical.   He also maintains his police commission, and serves as an Auxiliary Police Officer with the Alliance, Ohio Police Department, where he serves as a SRT Team Leader.

There are a lot of features packed in this compact light including a 400 Lumen Maxvision white LED, 300 mW Maxvision IR LED, 850 nm Class IIIb IR laser, and 520 nm Class IIIb Green laser (50 mW).

Designed originally as a pistol light, the XVL2 has already been seen on carbines as well as MP7s, flipped upside down.

This is a 3v light and the single cell CR123A is accessible by a clockwise quarter turn of the lamp module.

There’s also a special DG coming this light.

SureFire assures me a civilian variant is coming, but they’ve got to get it certified first.

For now, government customers contact SureFire or Quantico Tactical.
