Murdered Out for Spring/Summer 2023 Hat

Murdered Out Spring Summer Stars Memento Mori Hat Cap

 Officially dropped 2023 Spring / Summer "Murdered Out" Hats/Caps from VDEV.GROUP, there are four of them, all different.  Two are dad hat styles that have "memento mori" embroidered on the back.  Two are mesh style backs, one snap and one full mesh stretch.  Theses are legit.  Grab one before they are gone. 

Belleville Boots AMRAP

Belleville Boots AMRAP

The guys over at Belleville Boots sent me these waterproof AMRAP boots for testing.  After I wear them for a bit I'll do an initial impressions post.  I will be directly contrasting them against the Salomon MID GTX, and the Blauer MID's that I have to still write a review for.

Ameriglo Agent Sights


I also got a set of Ameriglo Trooper sights that were standard issue for the CBP Glock 47 when they were issued.  Will do a post on them as well.  I previously did a review on several Ameriglo sights, like the BOLD and FBI Sights, as well as the CAP, Defoor and PRO-I Dot's.  Check those reviews out.

You have to carry a tourniquet if you carry a gun.

 tourniquet for law enforcement LE

This occurred in Reno, involving two Reno PD LEO's, a Sgt and an Officer.  The Sgt made contact with several armed males and a shootout ensued.  The Sgt made good hits, but as often occurs in gunfights, was shot himself.  He did not have a tourniquet on his person.  A backup officer armed with a rifle engaged both the armed males and then ran over to the downed Sgt to render aid, he also did not have a tourniquet on his person.  It was several responsible armed citizens came to the rescue.  It is difficult to tell from the video but it was actually a belt that was provided to the down Sgt and applied by one of the citizens.  I initially believed it may have been an RMT, but it was not.

Guardian Warrior Solutions ADAPT Attachment


The ADAPT series from Guardian Warrior Solutions seeks to completely remove teklok, molle style attachments, and other cumbersome and heavy plastics for duty rigs, plate carrier, and battle belts.  I have been waiting for something like this for a while now, I really don't like the plastic attachments, so this is really cool.  This one is shown attached to a Strategic Dark handcuff pouch, one of my favorites.

End of Year Thoughts: Burn the Right Reps

end of year thoughts 2022

Looking back at 2022, what comes immediately to mind is a body of water reflecting back at me, myself in real-time but not myself.  A mirror image that is me but is not me, my clone, from just moments before.  This is the person to whom every single day of training, mindset development, endless mental exercise, and work are devoted to overcoming, an adversary who will be present for the remainder of my life.  My true nemesis.
