Mexican Drug Cartel Leader’s Assault Rifle Traced to US Felon Gun Seller
An assault rifle seized during the July arrest of one of Mexico’s most violent drug lords — Miguel Angel “Z-40″ Treviño Morales — has been traced to a shady gun seller whose Spring Branch home was searched last week and netted what authorities said was a “small arsenal.” More than 10,000 rounds of ammunition, 76 guns and $15,000 in cash were seized from Manuel “Manny” Rodriguez, 65, who was sentenced in 2002 to 47 months in the federal penitentiary after being… [San Antonio Express-News (Texas), via GunPolicy.org]

Military Grade VS Law Enforcement Equipment
While warzone and law enforcement operations might have many things in common, there are quite a few distinct differences when it comes to designing their respective equipment and accessories.

While warzone and law enforcement operations might have many things in common, there are quite a few distinct differences when it comes to designing their respective equipment and accessories. This is why, when buying weapons and accessories, you must know what you want to use them for and in what situations. Military grade equipment, more often than not, is designed for extremely dangerous situations where combat is expected with quite some certainty, while law enforcement equipment emphasizes on protection, intimidation and safety.

To be deemed military grade a weapon or accessory has to be made with special materials and its design must have been tried and tested in many situations. Of course many military grade accessories are used in law enforcement operations, but being of a more pacifist nature the latter include products useless in the military.

While rifles are the weapons of choice of most soldiers, handguns and shotguns are usually used by law enforcement officers. The latter can be easily concealed and are very powerful in close quarter combat. This way a law enforcement officer can remain neutral until his weapon is needed, without intimidating the public, while a soldier pretty much must look like a soldier all the time.

Most law enforcement operations happen in an urban environment, where there are many innocent bystanders. A law enforcement officer is thus forced to work in very close combat or limited sight situations. This calls for superior maneuverability and efficiency. A soldier will most often operate with fewer restrictions and will need more power and the ability to overwhelm.

In law enforcement you need accessories that help you keep your suspect alive, while in military situations this is by far rarer as military grade equipment is not designed to be used for deterrence.

Having read all of the above, one can draw some clear conclusions about what type of equipment someone needs depending on the type of operation one needs it for. Law enforcement equipment is meant for close quarter combat and is usually used more to intimidate than to strike. Military equipment is meant to be deadly and accurate preferably from a long distance.

Often there is an issue of compatibility depending on if the weapon you bought is for commercial or military use. This is why you have to decide for one of the two for most accessories. Many accessories from superior product lines are compatible with both types of equipment, like many sights and flashlights.

So, if you want something to protect you in the city or your home, or if you are a law enforcement officer of any kind, you should prefer law enforcement equipment for sure. Military grade equipment is best suited for veterans, collectors and people living in dangerous open spaces.

If you intend to use your gun, either for self protection or for sport, you should choose what suits your needs best, because not all weapons are equally suited for every situation you will face. Choose your equipment wisely, having your goal in mind, and you can’t go amiss.

The Advantages Of Using Accessories Made By Grip Pod

Weapons require a horde of accessories to enhance their utility and to make operations more convenient. Both the military and civil law enforcement agencies require accessories for almost every type of weapon they use. While the term accessories may imply that their utility is purely additional to the primary function of the weapons, in reality that is not the case. Accessories are very much an integral and crucial functional fixture of any weapon. Many weapons are purely judged or graded based on the quality and range of accessories they use. The specific utilities of accessories can make a weapon more potent or less effective. Among the many companies that make weapon accessories, Grip Pod stands as the numero uno choice for many reasons.

There are several advantages of using accessories made by Grip Pod. First, the patented Grip Pod which is the flagship product of the company is unique and much superior to all forward grip bipods that are made in the US or used by militaries of different countries across the world. The Grip Pod is easy to use, lightweight and reliable. It is simple and quick to deploy and is phenomenally durable. Grip Pod has two variants. One is made of reinforced polymer which is used by the military and the other is made of space age polymer which is typically used by civil law enforcement agencies. Both are an imperative accessory for any preserver of law and order and protector of freedom.

Second, Grip Pod accessories are tested on the field for their utility and efficacy. Many weapons and accessories are tested in simulated environments. It is not uncommon to find accessories not tested in real battlefields. However realistic simulations can get, they cannot be exactly similar to how the real situation would be. Being tested on the ground and by real soldiers during warring times, Grip Pod comes with unprecedented and unparallel surety of its utility, durability and efficacy. No other major accessory maker does field testing to an extent that Grip Pod does.

Third, Grip Pod has been hailed for having the quickest deployment time. The bipod for instance, can be deployed with a simple push of a button and it takes two tenths of a second to get deployed. The light weight along with convenient and fast deployment makes Grip Pod the maker of the most desirable accessories used by the military and law enforcement agencies.

About the Grip Pod

A Grip Pod is an innovative weapon stabilization system with integrated vertical fore grip for certain automatic weapons and assault rifles. The weapon has a strong and stable Bipod for aimed firing to give a grip on the weapon and their leg position’s that mounts at the push button of the user. This not only transforms the weapon into a much handier one but also helps avoiding it from losing its position of firing. These grip attachments manufactured from aerospace materials are specially designed for the military and law enforcements.
This automatic system was created back in 2003. Mr. Joseph R. Moody and Mr. Joseph D. Gaddini laid the foundation. This has successfully been accepted and implemented by the United States Army and Air Force, U.S.M.C, FBI, DEA, Customs Border Patrol, National Guard, British Army and special forces and federal agencies worldwide.

The Grip Pod is not like the usual conventional vertical grips. Rather it enables the gun to perform the bi-pod function to be used on the ground when used from a seated position. This technique is called the simple snap and release design technique.

There is a thick button designed with a texture feel on the side of the Pod. This proves to be helpful in providing grip while firing incase if it’s windy or even raining. By installing the Bipod system we ensure that the rifle will stably hold any surface, be it a table, ground, or any rough surface for that matter and extended in all relevant positions, if sitting or even lying down.
The materials used to design the bipod are high density polymers or stainless steel depending upon the grades. They can be stated flexible because of their strong traction to stabilize and hold the ground well. And this Flexibility proves to be an additional favorable feature as it easily recoils.
Now, the polymers used for different grades are:

  • Stainless steel is used for the Military grade.
  • The super strong polymer is used for the Law enforcement.

Both the models are exceptionally good products. Stainless steel is costlier than any other polymer which means that the law enforcement model is cheaper than the military model.
There are various other models available in the market. There are companies who manufacture genuine models but there are companies who manufacture imitation models also. Like any imitation items available in terms of food, jewelry, electronics we prefer to buy the genuine ones over the imitations simply because they are safe and last longer.
Likewise, while buying the Grip pods, it should be 100% genuine and authentic. There is not much difference in the looks of a genuine and an imitation one but its durability and life surely varies.

The materials used are not completely authentic. Over a period of time system loses its grip or even breaks because it is made up of cheap material. The wing nut also strips that were used when being tightened the barrels.
So, be careful while picking up and prefer genuine products as they last longer.

I have created a series improved 25M zero Shooting targets (based of the standard US Military 25M zero target) that will allow the shooter to zero for 50/200M, 100M, and 300M using a 25yd/M range. The different Shooting targets are calibrated for both 20″ full length service rifles and also 14.5″ / 16″ carbines with the shorter sight radius. The bold centering lines should assist in acquiring the good sight picture required for zeroing. These are also in different colors in addition to the traditional black for your individual preference. Trajectories used were an average of M193 and M855 ballistic data. This should get most shooters in the right area. As you know, this can change with different loads.
