SOTECH Launches New Products at SHOT Show 2020

Monday, January 20th, 2020

For the 2020 SHOT Show, SOTECH announces they will display their new Tactical Evacuation Pack, the Cobra Medical Aid Bag system, a ropes evacuation system, and the Tactical Modular Medical Carriage System, along with systems we are partnering on including the Tactical Leg Restraint, the Phone Flipper retention device, the Lightweight Tactical Ingress/Egress Kit, and the AUFire wound simulation training system.  And of course, SOTECH will have the Challenge Bears and will be accepting donations for the Vets Corps USA work skills training program.

The Tactical Evacuation Pack is based on our old Expanding SERE pack but redesigned to mount to a vest or large pack as a pouch that unzips into a pack.  We worked  with Army SOF to create a bag to accept a wounded soldier’s full helmet, plate carrier and belt system as a patient effects bag.  As an evidence collection bag or a SERE foraging bag, there is ample room for the load. Its unique configuration allows it to be worn as a pack, expanded while still attached to a plate carrier, or as an expansion module when mounted on top of a large ruck.

The Cobra Medical Aid Bag System is a super-comfortable long-range carry aid bag that opens into an aid station fully integrating into the Tactical Modular Medical Carriage System that was recently NSNed. We have a regular rifleman’s variant and are working on an EOD package already.  Detailed announcements will be coming soon. Along with the Cobra, we are displaying the Lightweight Tactical Ingress/Egress Kit.  SOTechTactical.com

Everyone has been startled while focused on their phone. The Phone Flipper is a retention device for action-oriented people. The loop allows you to both retain your phone while using it and to flip it to the back-hand position for you to go hands on with a tool or a handle.  While not designed for use with a weapon, it can keep a phone handy for a quick call to 911, or just out of the way until you have the opportunity to pocket it.

And the Phone Flipper comes with a version to hold your government ID and credit card to keep the vitals in one place. www.phoneflipper.com available at SOTechTactical.com

Accuracy Under Fire is a gunshot wound simulator generated by electrical muscle stimulation which randomly incapacitated limbs during live tactical training. It is controlled by an instructor with remote device.  www.clearadvancement.com

The Scout Light Pro

Monday, January 20th, 2020

Fountain Valley, CA—SureFire, LLC, manufacturer of the world’s finest—and most innovative—illumination tools and tactical products, is proud to announce the all-new Scout Light Pro series of WeaponLights. SureFire’s legendary Scout Light® WeaponLights have proven themselves in combat around the world. Our new Scout Light Pro family builds on this success with an integrated next-generation mounting system that offers the ultimate in versatility for long gun weapon light users.

Every Scout Light Pro features our new Low-Profile Mount (LPM), allowing the user to mount their light as close to the weapon no matter the rail or configuration. The LPM affords tremendous flexibility when used in conjunction with a variety of rail profiles or accessories; simply pivot the WeaponLight body to allow optimal light positioning, then lock it down securely with any flat blade screwdriver or multi-tool. All Scout Light Pros will ship with both a MIL-STD-1913 mount as well as an M-LOK® mount.

Scout Light Pro models feature recoil-proof LEDs that deliver intense white light or a combination of white light and infrared illumination. Focused through our proprietary TIR lens, they produce a far-reaching, high-intensity beam with ample surround light. On IR models, choosing between tactical white light and infrared illumination is as simple as rotating the bezel. Our rugged, shrouded Z68 push-button tailcap switch comes standard on all Scout Light Pro models and can be easily replaced with any of the remote-activation switching solutions available for our fixed-mount Legacy Scout Light models.

Constructed of lightweight aerospace aluminum, Scout Light Pros have no appreciable impact on weapon handling characteristics. And with a Mil-Spec Hard-Anodized finish and O-ring seals to keep out the elements, they can endure the harshest conditions. Like previous generations of SureFire WeaponLights, the new Scout Light Pro will help you prevail in combat.

SIG Range Day 20 – Wall Of Donuts

Sure, there are loads of guns and accessories at SIG Range Day but the Wall Of Donuts remains a favorite.

SIG Range Day – TYR Tactical Armors Hendrick Motor Sports STEED

Monday, January 20th, 2020

Hendrick Motor Sports Silent Tactical Energy Enhanced Dismount, in my opinion the most impressive improvement to small unit mobility since the mule, is now even better.

The STEED remains capable of improving mobility and load carriage for the squad. This electric cart has zero emissions and can carry up to 500 lbs over complex terrain at speeds from 0-6.5 mph. STEED will even climb stairs and can be used in water.

But now it is armored thanks to TYR Tactical. They’ve armored the motor underneath and developed a kit to mount a level IV Ballistic Shield. The shield adds 43 lbs to the front of the STEED which they’ve offset with a soft container for ammo crates at the other end.
