G2G JOHNCONNOR GOODTOGOGEAR GUNN-WORN VESTS KAKADU TRADERS AUSTRALIA I’ve been through several concealed-carry vests and found most of ‘em are like dropping a brick into a windbreaker, or their “antiprinting panels” look and feel like you’re packing sheets of cardboard. I’ve been wearing two of Kakadu’s Gunn-Worn vests for 6 months now, and I give them five stars for comfort, concealment, security and speed. For cold weather, the Hoover, at left, is a brushed, cottonlined, quilted MicroWax oilskin with deep hand warmer pockets. And for warmer weather, the Delta at right is a multi-pocketed, fully lined canvas model. Their prime feature is the CCIS (Concealed Carry Internal System) with large, fast-access interior holster pockets, each containing a stable, heavy-duty holster on both left and right sides, plus two heavy elasticized tunnels, one sized for double-stack mags and one for single-stack mags. They work fine for knives, lights and pepper spray too. The best part is the holster pockets are tagged into both the shoulders and armholes of the vest, so you get the comfortable suspension of a shoulder holster without any flopping around. The Hoover lists for $175.99 and the Delta for $139.99. HEX BIT ACCESSORY KIT SOG KNIVES Countless numbers of cops carry SOG PowerLock multitools like mine, shown left. Five of the 12 PowerLock models include a .25" socket driver — see it sticking out in the photo? And I’m guessing like me, you may have carried and used your PowerLock for years, but never teamed it up with SOG’s Hex Bit Accessory Kit. Finally I did about a year ago, and found it’s one of those things if you just keep it handy, you wind up using it a lot and realizing its full value. The HXB-01 gives you a pliable rubber strip holding a .25" driver socket plus 12 interchangeable bits, including #1, #2 and #3 Phillips, #3, #5 and #7 flathead, T6, T8, T10 and T20 Torx and 1.5mm and 2mm Hex bits. The PowerLock design lets you isolate the driver and close the multitool so you have a full grip and rigidity for hard use. The array of bits fit a wide variety of needs, and it comes with a lifetime warranty for a list price of only $20. PERFORMANCE ENHANCEMENT SAVAGEARMS.COM How do you make a Savage rifle even more accurate? Well, as the adage goes, you can’t kill what you can’t see, so you include a Nikon 3-9x40 BDC reticle scope, mounted and bore sighted. This unique reticle can be ballistically matched to your exact cartridge using Nikon “Spot On” Software. Coincidentally, the price of the new package is “Spot On” too. See your favorite Savage dealer for details. Spot On is a trademark of Nikon Corporation 14 WWW.AMERICANCOPMAGAZINE.COM • MAY2013
