SHOT Show 2019 | Glock

Glock 45 

This model is defined by many as an adaptation of the Glock 19X (which was developed for the MHS program) to the Law Enforcement and duty needs.
The full grip (of the Glock 17) allows for maximum control while the shortened slide (of the Glock 19) provides various advantages.
Among the pros are faster “clearing of the holster”, shorter sight radius and less reciprocating mass, both due to the shorter slide.
Although a shorter sight radius will render more accurate shots more difficult, it provides a great advantage: the shooter is able to pick up the sights much faster, both on the first shot (from holster or ready position) as well as during follow-up shots.
Along with the sight radius follow-up shots are quicker due to reduced mass moving along the slide. Instead of lightening the slight Glock has simply shortened it, achieving the same result.

Triple Aught Design: Intercept Performance Denim | Review

Triple Aught Design Intercept PD Performance Denim Urban Survivor Blog

Whether you are an operator overseas or a civilian carrying a concealed handgun at the mall, one of the most important aspects of urban operations is blending in. Camouflage is a interesting subject when it comes to being unnoticed to the human eye. How it works in the wilderness is clear to everybody, and we are not here to discuss that; but as soon as you reach civilization, it becomes a more complicated.

Two of the main aspects of urban “blending in” techniques are:

  1. Try to move with the crowds and avoid seeking any attention
  2. Dress casual and stay away from camo gear.

In this article, we will focus on the second category: dressing casual (or in conjunction with the environment).

As of 2016, a good portion of the world shares some common “fashions” or “dress codes”. One color or piece of clothing that is well distributed and utilized throughout the globe is denim; this makes our job at “disappearing” much easier.

In the past years there has been a good variety of jackets, button shirts and even shoes on the market specifically designed for the tactical/performance segment of the market (concealed carry or “covert operations”); but casual pants were missing from this selection.

For a long time there has been a very wide gap between tactical pants and casual denim; the first being versatile and comfortable during high performance activities but with a lack of casual aesthetics, while the second being the exact opposite.  Now Triple Aught Design has made the right connection between these two much separated segments of market.

The Intercept PD pants are extremely well crafted and are made in the United States. Triple Aught Design has really focused a lot of attention in quality and design through the development of this product.  The Performance Denim comes from America’s oldest working denim mill, from North Carolina, and it is woven with 1% elastane for better comfort during high performance activities.

As far as pocket usability the Intercept PD are basically a pair of Cargo pants that look like jeans; it is as simple as that. The five traditional pockets provide a classic look and feel to the product, while closer to the belt line are placed the 4 concealed pockets, designed with performance and weight bearing in mind. The close proximity of the pockets to the waist allows the user to carry heavier items (spare mags, multi-tools, flashlight, medical kits and much more) without any movement limitation, even while seated.

The Intercept PD are engineered with noise reduction in mind: instead of the classic zipper TAD has implemented a button closure of the groin (to avoid any noise of metallic moving parts) while the 9 pockets are deep and kept close to the user’s body by the elastic fabric, reducing any sort of movement of the content.

The belt loops are large and heavy-duty, which is vital for carrying a tactical belt (especially with a holster, both Inside the Waistband and Outside the Waistband). Triple Aught Design has applied hidden triple needle stitching and bartacks throughout the whole product. Applied on the two front pockets is the TAD diamond reinforcement to protect from premature wear from knives, tools or flashlight clips.

With the Intercept Performance Denim TAD is delivering a product of which the development really revolved around the operator. If you are looking for a way to disappear from the radar in an urban environment you should really add the Intercept Performance Denim to your list, they are worth each and every penny.
