TYR Tactical Urban Gunfighter Course Supports Missouri Law Enforcement

Monday, September 26th, 2016

Recently, I had the opportunity to observe portions of a special training course presented by TYR Tactical for members of the Missouri Law Enforcement community. The lead instructor was Dan Brokos. He’s still on active duty, but has done some work for Viking Tactics over the past few years. You may have also heard of the Brokos Belt which was created by him. He’s very knowledgeable and very approachable.

It’s important to note that this is not an open enrollment course but rather presented at no cost to LE by TYR Tactical. Consequently, I’m not going to get into the details about what went on during the training. Instead, I’ll stick to generalities. Additionally, all of these men are currently on the job and I want to respect that. However, I will tell you that the training was hosted at the Camden County Sheriff’s Office Firing Range near Lake of the Ozarks. It’s beautiful country and a well maintained range complex, but with it situated in a bowl, the temps were in the upper 90s.

After a quick discussion about his background, along with that of his AI (I should be introducing him to all of you soon), Brokos went over range safety and particularly how it related to the upcoming two days of training. Day one was carbine and day two was pistol in the morning, with an afternoon wrapup of mixed pistol and carbine work. Dan Brokos will tell you that there’s no one way to do things, although he concentrates on sharing his 26 years of military experience and those proven techniques which have been honed by US SOF over the past 15 years. There are no fads here or questionable tactics. Everything he teaches has been validated on the two-way range. &

Interestingly, the attendees came from several agencies, with different backgrounds, and varying degrees of experience. Most were armed with .223 AR-15 type weapons from a variety of manufacturers, with one agency’s officers outfitted with MP-5s. Pistols were primarily GLOCKs with a mixture of .40 and 9mm. Naturally, their equipment was just as varied. As an aside, fallout from the Ferguson situation continues to set in. For example, there’s a push in Missouri, at least at the state level, to transition SWAT from MultiCam and OD to Black because it is less militaristic.

Next, Brooks talked about the advantages of a 50m zero and the class dove right in, getting it quickly out of the way. Next up was barricades. Brokos demonstrated each event and then had the students run through before introducing a competitive element, whether individual or team races against one another or the clock. While time is a factor, hits in the A-zone are what counts. He also insists students shoot from both strong and weak sides and reinforces effective use of barricades as shooting platforms in his drills.

One point I’ll share is that Brokos puts students in shooting positions, particularly during the vehicle phase, which will require most to shoot with one eye closed. Those same positions, which are variations of ‘brokeback’, require the student to consider how to best stabilize the weapon, be it carbine or pistol. His focus is on offensive action, delivering effective fire, and maneuver. Maneuver, that means moving.

Technically, the Urban Gunfighter Course is an extension of TYR’s Innovate or Die Tour. This means, in addition to the training, TYR brought out their mobile showroom to the range. This was great for several reasons. First off, it was hot and humid, so the showroom was a great spot to cool off during lunch. Second, it allowed students to check out the latest gear and ask questions of David Rice, a recently retired LEO and head of LE sales at TYR.

For those of you unfamiliar, the TYR Tactical Mobile Showroom is a custom 44’ trailer, designed to travel across the country for customer outreach. For the first time, customers have a hands-on experiences with TYR Tactical Pouches, Body Armor, Belts, Revere K9 Products and Huron Clothing and Packs. They also get a chance to view products before their release and provide feedback on existing products.

TYR Tactical – Female EPIC Non-Cutaway System

Wednesday, August 31st, 2016

In 2013 TYR Tactical began developing a female specific tactical carrier system. The first step was to gather both measurement and movement data for female users.

PROPER COVERAGE
• Protection of vital organs and breast tissue.
• Solution: Female shape body armor that has additional coverage around the breast tissue.

BASIC SHAPE
• Focus on female anatomy driven by the need support and stability.
• Solution: Shape carrier and ballistics to have an inset/cut-in above the breast tissue to accommodate shoulder rotation, female anatomy and allow for shouldering weapon.

PLATE LOCATION
• Current female systems lacked the ability to provide proper plate placement. The placement of the plate
did not lay flat on the torso of female participants. It would lay at an angle, applying pressure to the breast tissue area. This ultimately took away from the ballistic performance of the plate and soft armor.
• Solution: The front of the female carrier incorporates a gusseted plate pocket. This pocket relieves tension and pressure that is normally placed on the body from the hard plate in typical plate pocket configurations. This enhances the users range of motion to allow for increased ergonomics and performance. It also provides decreased hot spots on the body by utilizing our airflow chamber technology.

LOAD CARRIAGE
• In the past, load carriage has typically been static and designed in a vertical alignment which does not self-adjust with the operator’s natural movements.
• Solution: Female shaped components such as the shoulders, yoke, collar and belt were created to enhance the overall female system.

Introducing the TYR Tactical Female EPIC Non- Cutaway System (TYR-F-EPIC-NC). It was designed to ensure proper area of coverage while enhancing the users range of motion. This both increases the ergonomics and performance of the carrier.

The Female EPIC Non-Cutaway also incorporates our Patent Pending Female Shape. Two lateral darts contour around the females natural shape while still providing a full range of motion, support and eliminates excess compression on the breast tissue.

It’s engineered utilizing TYR’s revolutionary PV material which offers significant weight reduction with increased resistance to abrasion. PVhas been tested to have 7-10 times higher abrasion resistance than standard mil spec nylon. PV also enhances the ballistic attributes of armor within the vest. Antimicrobial/FR treated padded spacer mesh is used internally for comfort.

Features:
• Patent Pending Female Shape
• PALS webbing for MOLLE attachment
• Hydration/Communication Tabs for routing
• Attachment points for a 2-Wire Cutaway Cummerbund (Sold Separately)
• EPIC™ Low Profile Shoulders
• Our Patented Ballistic Vein Increases Load Carriage Performance, Provides A Rigid Platform, Reduces Fatigue, Stabilizes & Enhances Soft Armor Inserts
• Reinforced Drag Handle
• Removable Assaulters Zip-On Back Panel
• Semi-Rigid Exterior MOLLE Cummerbund
• Repair Buckle Kit
• T52/SP Soft Armor [Meets Level II NIJ0101.06]

TYR Tactical PICO-DS Assaulters Plate Carrier

Thursday, July 14th, 2016

Earlier this week, I attended the TYR Tactical Innovate Or Die Tour at the DuPont plant near Richmond, Virginia. One of the products I got a chance to check the out was the new PICO-DS Assaulters Plate Carrier. One look at it and it made me think of the old Diamondback Tactical Fast Attack Plate Carrier. Of course, the PICO-DS has been greatly updated from that old, simple design.

The TYR Tactical PICO-DS Assaulters Plate Carrier is lightweight, configurable and scalable  Made from TYR’s PV, which is durable and also enhances the ballistic attributes of armor within the vest. A very nice feature is the internal, padded, areas of the PICO-DS which are constructed with 4-way stretch tweave for additional freedom of movement and comfort. 

This plate carrier utilizes a five piece design called the Integrated Ballistic System that increases ballistic protection, decreases side spall and reduces back face deformation.

FEATURES:
• PALS Webbing for MOLLE Attachment
• Features the Swift Clip system for integrating chest racks and other accessories
• The circumference of the New Mesh Base Cummerbund incorporates poly mesh which quickens dry time in both arid and humid climates. It also allows excess heat to vent, further decreasing dry time. It also has two rows of MOLLE/PALS webbing to attach pouches.
• Removable MOLLE Front Flap with MOLLE/PALS webbing to attach mission specific pouches
• NEW 1.5” Low Profile Shoulder Pads with easy front to back overlapping adjustment
• Ballistic Vein™ increases load carriage performance, provides a rigid platform, reduces fatigue, stabilizes and enhances soft armor inserts.
• Certified T52/SP Soft Armor Level II NIJ0101.06 Specifications

Optional Accessories:
• 3 Row Mesh Cummerbund
• Side Buckle Kit
• Happy Mag Front Mag
• Front Ballistic Lower Ab
• Front Low Ab General Purpose Pouch
• Side Wing Mag Pouches
• Side Wing Radio Pouches

Carrier size relates to the size of the plates:
Small: 9.75″x12” Plate Pocket
Medium: 10.5″x12.75” Plate Pocket
Large: 11.25″x13.5” Plate Pocket
XLarge: 11.75″x14.65” Plate Pocket
