What is the Blackhawk Serpa Holster

Blackhawk Serpa – An Overview

Blackhawk Company has been incredibly successful in the past few years with their line of tactical gear. Blackhawk was started by a Navy Seal with a poor experience with his military-issued gear, who then dedicated himself to making mission-ready gear for our country’s armed forces and Police agencies.

The story goes that in a minefield in 1990, a Navy Seal was watching his step (and his butt). His pack failed and sent his gear tumbling everywhere. He made a vow if he made it back he would make gear the right way.

BlackHawk was born and since then, they have been steadily increasing their line of products to include everything from packs to gloves, slings, and even holsters.

Blackhawk was the first largely successful company to produce a kydex holster featuring an active retention mechanism. The holster was adopted by the United States Marines who issue it for their Beretta M9. Multiple police agencies and even federal level law enforcement issue this to their officers and agents.

Best Tactical Lights and Lasers for Handguns

Lights and lasers for handguns are extremely popular these days. In the last few decades, we’ve seen the market and need for these lights and lasers explode.

Laser technology has grown in leaps and bounds and lasers have gotten both smaller and more efficient, and much more affordable. Lights have become standard issue for tactical use and are becoming more and more popular with home defense.

Handgun lasers and lights are force multipliers in a low light gun fight and give police, military, and civilians another option to use from their tool kit.

Top Tactical Tomahawks

SOG Voodoo Hawk

SOG Voodoo Hawk

Tomahawks are the famed small axes invented in North America by her native people. The tomahawk is many things, but most of all it was designed as a weapon.

The tomahawk can be used as a tool for sure, but often a hatchet is a better small axe. Tomahawks gained extensive popularity after the European colonists settled in North America and Canada.

The Tomahawk was adapted as a weapon by the Royal Navy for their famed boarding parties. They recognized the usefulness of the tomahawk in close range and its ease of use. Even the modern U.S. Army issues a tomahawk to their Stryker Brigade for use in Afghanistan as a dynamic entry tool.

Product Review of the 5.11 Rush MOAB 10 Pack

5.11 Rush MOAB 10 Bag

5.11 Rush MOAB 10 Bag

The 5.11 tactical series of back packs is quite varied and often split into different series, like the Rush, the All Hazard, and now the MOAB.

The MOAB 10 or Mobile Operation Attachment Bag 10 is the largest in their sling bag series. Sling bags are not traditional back packs with two straps, as they feature one wide strap that is attached diagonally across the bag.

Advantages of Sling Bags

5.11 Rush MOAB 10 Bag

5.11 Rush MOAB 10 Bag

Sling bags are often must faster to throw on and drop off, and when working in and out of vehicles, bags like MOAB are much easier to work with than your average day bag. The tradeoff being that most sling style bags are smaller and not as comfortable to wear on long patrols.

The MOAB 10 is probably the largest sling bag out there. The MOAB 10 is only a little shallower than a standard day pack. The MOAB 10 does have extra MOLLE to add on extra pouches and increase the overall capacity, or to better organize the bag.

5.11 ALL Hazards Prime Backpack – Product Review

5.11 Tactical has never entered the market with cheap, substandard tactical gear. They’ve always approached the market with their products and stood behind them. It’s easy to see why, when bags like the All Hazards Prime is one of their products. The All Hazards Prime combines ideas never before seen in a tactical pack.

5.11 All Hazards Prime Backpack Black

5.11 All Hazards Prime Backpack Black

An Overview

The basics of the pack are that it is purposely built for you to purposely build it, if that makes sense. The point is it’s extremely adaptable, but saying that feels like it’s cheapening the true meaning of the bag.

An AR-15 rifle is adaptable, but at the end of the day it’s still an AR-15 rifle. The All Hazard Prime is a backpack, until you turn into a range bag, or until you turn it into 72 hour bag, or until it becomes you squad’s medical bag. It more than adapts; it transforms.
