TASER X26 Less-Lethal Weapon for Police/LE 1st Responders

by David Crane [email protected] Let me start off by saying that DefenseReview would never in a million years recommend any less-lethal weapon as a stand-alone carry alternative to a combat-reliable defensive/tactical-grade firearm. However, after carrying around a TASER X26 for the last several months as an adjunct/back-up to my trusty carry Glock 19 (G19) high-capacity compact 9mm pistol, I can ... Read More »

Virtra Systems Use-of-Force Firearms Training Simulator: Immerse Yourself.

by David Crane [email protected] Of all the products displayed at Trexpo East 2004, DefRev enjoyed this one the most.

Strike Plate Rail System (S.P.R.S) for 1911 Pistols

by David Crane [email protected] If your 1911 pistol doesn’t incorporate an integral rail, you might want to give this product some serious consideration. The Strike Plate Rail System (S.P.R.S.) is a combination tactical light rail/strike plate, and it’s pretty trick. Urban Advantage Tactical Systems just introduced it at TREXPO West 2004. A strike plate like the S.P.R.S. prevents the slide ... Read More »

Springfield Armory XD (X-Treme Duty) Pistols

by David Crane [email protected] Speaking of compact and subcompact pistols (see story below), DefRev also has yet to run the XD (X-treme Duty) pistols by Springfield Armory. The two models we’re most interested in evaluating are the 4 inch service model XD pistol and the 3 inch Sub-Compact XD pistol. The 3" subcompact XD pistol might actually be the most ... Read More »
