Blackhawk’s Zach Rodman Takes Second at New Mexico Tactical Games

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – March 17, 2023 – Blackhawk®, a leader in law enforcement and military equipment for over 20 years, congratulates tactical athlete Zach Rodman for his second-place finish at the Tactical Games 2023 New Mexico Regional event. Rodman, competing in the Men’s Elite Division, secured the podium finish despite inclement weather that hindered competitors at the NRA Whittington Center in Raton, New Mexico.

Rodman, a 15-year veteran of the Kokomo, Indiana, police force and SWAT team, ran Blackhawk’s T-Series® L3D holster and Foundation Series Tac Nylon gear throughout the event, including plate carrier, belt and pouches.

“New Mexico was a blast, and a really challenging environment,” said Rodman. “Having gear that’s minimalist in design was a real advantage, especially during the 2-mile run that included a 100- to 500-yard rifle stage. It is great to have light, low-profile gear that doesn’t hinder complicated movements, so I can focus on the competition.”

Blackhawk’s T-Series holsters with leg straps are optimally designed to maintain proper holster position and security as competitors navigate unconventional obstacles throughout the Tactical Games. Foundation Series Tac Nylon gear gives competitors some of the lightest weight gear in its class without sacrificing durability or modularity, which is critical to maintaining speed and endurance while wearing plate carriers.

Rodman’s next competition will be April 15-16 at the Tactical Games South Carolina Team event at The SawMill Training Complex in Laurens, South Carolina. Rodman will once again be competing with teammate Jared Halbert, with whom he placed second during The Tactical Games Panthera West Virginia Team competition.
