Dickies Occupational Wear Launches Tactical Collection For Law Enforcement Industry - Soldier Systems Daily

Memories... when NRTI first mandated uniforms for the SOT program, khaki Dickies.  Then I came along and changed the pants to dark dog-poop brown, because I was used to jail trustees wearing all khaki and it was just a matter of time before someone near me would turn too quickly and I'd take them to the ground.  That was the "UPS" uniform, because people kept mistaking Candidates for deliverymen and women.  Then khaki BDUs, which caused non-stop complaints from female candidates because they made their butts look too big, or too small, or tri-lobal, or something, plus they were cheap and there were WAY too many blown-out crotches during DT, visuals I'm still trying to forget.  That brought us to what was the last Academy uniform, though I'd like to see somebody outfit themselves in a thousand dollars worth of Dickies.

GoPro: Grizzly Eats My GoPro





Or in my case, Hocking ate my GoPro, which is still charging on my desk "getting ready" for firearms.  And that after I couldn't get Danica Caron from RAP25 to run over it, or have a chance to duct tape it to the SkidCar  (I actually have brackets and cool stuff like that, but duct tape sounds more Appalachian)


About this video - I pity the guy who had to get the microSD card back

EVOC

I'll try to get some cool pictures of the SkidCar posted, but right now all I have is a smashed, and by smashed I mean utterly destroyed, traffic cone.  I've seen some messed up cones, but this takes the cone-cake.  But then we didn't get a call from the rental company…just saying.'
The really scary part is that is wasn't even on the course - somebody did a drive-by squashing

Around the Water Cooler: Avoiding Tragedy : The Tactical Wire

Around the Water Cooler: Avoiding Tragedy : The Tactical Wire

by Rich Grassi

"Last week, a news item came in and I posted it in social media. The
location was Montgomery County, Penn. According to the story, an
off-duty state trooper was disassembling his pistol for cleaning. He
pulled the trigger - presumably to put the striker at rest - "but did
not realize the gun was loaded, police said." The round struck his
pregnant wife. She and the unborn baby were both lost. She was 22 weeks
along."
