vANTAGE PoiNT Continuedfrompage62 Land Surveillance Camera efore you think I’ve gone off and lost my mind, bear with me a moment. B Bushnell’s Cordless Land Surveillance Camera has many uses, and ones you might not have thought of too. And everything you see here only costs about $99! There are all kinds of things you can survey in the course of your job that may not qualify as worthy of getting undercover officers to work; so why not snoopand-poop on your own? You can use it around your house and car for those miscreants who think it’s fun to “mess with the cop’s stuff.” Find out who’s taking your junk from the trunk of your squad car. Are you with me now? Got ya. www. americancopmagazine.com/bushnell Nathan’s knife remember as a kid, my sisters and I would I save popsicle sticks so we could make our own knives. Scraping the ends on the pavement to form blades, we’d sandwich the blades between other sticks and rubber band them all together — they looked more like Frankenknives, but that never really mattered. After seeing Nathan’s Knife Kit I got a little starry eyed; if only I’d had this when I was a kid! This kit is just the thing to enjoy some fun time with your children; you get to stroll down memory lane and they get to build something to use for neighborhood adventures. www. americancopmagazine.com/crkt news Mega Stack Rack ot a gallery of gats? A bevy of g bangers? Hyskore’s metal, heavyduty Mega Stack Rack handles it. We posed ours with a line-up of one of “each” and found it handles everything with aplomb. We discovered you can tote ’em two ways, right side up and upside down, and the little shelf below can hold magazines, ammo or your favorite gold teeth. They’re stackable, and in a safe or hidey-ho place, make it easy to keep your good friends safe, and less inclined to get banged around. We filled our safe with ’em and I confess it’s nice to open the door and see organization, rather than piles of guns and stuff. Hey, there’s my old Model 10 they issued me a hundred years ago. www.americancopmagazine. com/hyskore WWW.AMERICANCOPMAGAZINE.COM * 61 vANTAGEPoiNT o you or officers on your agency carry 1911s? If you do and you’re finding practicing is too expensive, then consider this. A Rimfire Target Conversion Kit allows you to convert your 1911 to a .22 LR in about a minute — simply swap out barrels, slides and mags and voila, you’ve got the same platform, but much cheaper practice ammo. I really think this is a good idea for agencies to consider; each conversion kit is around $330. Keep a few of them on hand at the range along with a pile of .22 LR, and the savings on .45 ammo will pay for the kits in no time. I’ll bet even the bean counters would have to agree with me on this one. Our tests show it shoots about 2.5" at 25 yards. Solid performance. www.americancopmagazine. com/kimber rImfIre TArgeT ConversIon KIT d lock, Inc. donated $50,000 to the Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) during the 2011 International Association of Chiefs of Police Conference (IACP) held in Chicago, Ill., October 22-26. Regional Managers Warren Ackerson, Bob Radecki and Larry Burlingame, along with GLOCK spokesman, R. Lee Ermey, presented a check to the organization during a donation ceremony. This marks the fifth consecutive year GLOCK has donated to C.O.P.S., totaling $250,000 to date. C.O.P.S. is dedicated to supporting friends and families of law enforcement officers in their grief after the loss of that officer. The nonprofit organization supports families with scholarships, child and teen camps, counseling and programs designed for spouses and parents, and support for the department in which the fallen officer served.
