“Three, two, one,” our Three Curl Outfitters guide whispered to three of us stuck knee-deep in Texas farm pasture with fully loaded 7.62mm ARs firmly positioned on tripods, firing-line style. Our rifles, topped with Pulsar thermal imaging scopes, were all locked onto the crop-destroying noggin of a lone hog. (Seeing one alone is almost unheard of in this part of Texas, about 40 miles south of Dallas.) After the guide finished the word “one,” a barrage of shots rang out in the murky 2 a.m. skies, peppering the pig. Our thermal scope evaluation was limited to that single hog over the course of six hours. But we did get to wring out a few different Pulsar handhelds, including Helion monoculars and Accolade binoculars, that proved highly capable of picking up heat…

BERETTA APX CENTURION & COMPACT Beretta has expanded its striker-fired APX line with two smaller variants to complement the popular full-sized model. The mid-sized APX Centurion pistol holds either 15+1 (9mm) or 13+1 (.40 S&W) rounds in the same magazines as the full-sized APX. The APX Compact is designed for concealed carry and holds either 13+1 (9mm) or 10+1 (.40 S&W) rounds and can accept larger APX magazines as well. As with all APX pistols, the Centurion and Compact have been designed specifically for military and law enforcement users with removable serialized subchassis and replaceable grip modules. (beretta.com) BLACKHAWK HYBRID FOLDING SIGHTS These backup sights have solid metal alloy cores with advanced co-polymer jackets to remain light while still being extremely durable.

WE FROZE IT WE CRUSHED IT Recently, I got to test Primary Arms’ 3X Compact Prism Scope, though “torture” might be more accurate. What makes this scope unique is the Advanced Combat Sighting System (ACSS) reticle etched into the glass. This scope was designed for the sport shooting and hunting crowds. Of course, considering my testing protocol, I’d also include law enforcement in that mix, too. After seeing what this scope was capable of, I wouldn’t hesitate to put this on my patrol rifle. But more on that later. The ACSS reticle was designed by Dimitri Mikroulis and is used under license by Primary Arms (and Trijicon in its ACOG). I tested the reticle specific for 7.62x39mm/300 Blackout rounds, but it’s also available for other chamberings. I used RS Regulate AK-302M and AKOG…

legendary tribute

HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF CHRIS KYLE?” A MAN ASKED AS I SAT IN THE AIRPORT, WAITING OUT ANOTHER DELAYED DEPARTURE. HE HAD NOTICED THE FIREARMS-BRANDED CUES ON MY SHIRT AND HAT AND WAS INTRIGUED. As I nodded, he said he’d recently read Chris Kyle’s book, American Sniper, and how impactful he thought it was. This man had no military background. He was simply a business owner traveling with his wife, with four boys at home. He continued to say how moved he was by the book, the efforts Kyle made and the man that Kyle was—so much so that he’d brought a veteran who was struggling with posttraumatic stress disorder to work at his business. Ironically, just minutes before that exchange, I was struggling with how to open this piece, worried…

on the record

It takes just 1.6 seconds for a suspect to pull a gun and fire at a police officer. In this blur of motion, the details often get lost in the action. Such split-second incidents have cost police departments and cities many unintended consequences, which is why many are flocking to purchase body-worn cameras. Today’s body-worn cameras come in various styles and from many vendors, but they all have one basic function: to capture the incident from the officer’s perspective. This provides facts and evidence about a situation and might refute the “he said, she said” dilemma. The cameras can also be used for fighting crime and reducing complaints. OAKLAND DEFENDERS The Oakland, California, Police Department (OPD) long ago decided to invest in and equip its officers with body-worn cameras. Recently, the department continued…
