G2G GOOD TO GO GEAR The Jersey Cuff mArk hAnTEn Now with ChitoGauze by TM Battlefield technology stops severe bleeding fast with antibacterial easy-to-handle Z-fold. Pantone 185 CVC Pantone 704 CVC Approx. 5” x 5.75” Who consistently carries a set of cuffs with them off duty? Neither do I — because it’s a pain in the ass. I no longer have an excuse thanks to the Jersey Cuff. This simple, lightweight, and very compact restraint, which is about the size of a medium cigar (before deployment), can easily be carried virtually any time. It resembles a very strong zip tie, but uses a “leveling ring” between the extremities being secured to provide balanced tension on wrists or ankles. This system lessens the likelihood you’ll overtighten the cuff and cut off a suspect’s circulation. It also has a stainless steel locking device to eliminate the possibility of suspects “picking” the cuff. The Jersey Cuff is endorsed by the National Tactical Officer’s Association (NTOA), and is being evaluated by agencies all across the country for use on duty. I have a “Tac-Pac” set, complete with four restraints and a cutter in a handy tri-fold pouch, just in case that worst-case scenario happens … For more info: 5” Approx. 3.5” x BenChmade Impel mArk hAnTEn Approx. 5” x 7” A few ounces in your pocket could save your life. VACUUM SEALED FIRST AID SUPPLIES FOR THE EMERGENCY TREATMENT OF GUNSHOT, STAB WOUNDS AND OTHER TRAUMA I love switchblades and in 20 years of police work I still haven’t seen a crime committed with one. Unfortunately, automatic knives with a blade longer than 2" are illegal in California — even for cops. Enter Benchmade’s Impel. The Impel is a very high quality automatic knife with a blade length of 1.98", so it’s not a switchblade according to California law. Aside from that, Benchmade states it eloquently when they describe this knife as “The perfect small, tactical gentleman’s auto.” The clip-point blade is constructed of S30V premium stainless steel. The handle is machined aluminum with a black G10 onlay. The push button to activate the blade opening is well located, and there’s an integrated safety to prevent accidental activation. Closed, the Impel is a smidge over 3" long, and open it’s just over 5". It weighs 2.1 ounces, and is about a third of an inch thick. Did I mention the blade is 1.98" long?
