July 2017


What's got more pop than a fireworks display? The July issue of S.W.A.T. does, because it delivers the boom with reviews of Mossberg's 14" Shockwave 12 gauge, the new .338 Lapua Savage 110 FCP, and SIG's TACOPS 1911 in .357SIG.

Also inside are reviews of Raven's Balor red dot slide mount for Glock pistols, the Slim-Tuk holster from DeSantis, and Gerber's MP1-AR Weapons Multi-Tool. Round it off with Eugene Nielsen's tips on putting together a viable EDC med kit and a reprint of Pat Rogers' classic article on effective self-training, and you've got a bangin' good magazine for your summer reading.

You: “Freeze, or I’ll blow your (insert array of foul words here) head off!”

Bad guy: “So what.”

Have you ever been in such a situation? Our little tableau sounds like bad movie dialogue, but it really happens. In fact, it happens all the time.

“That’s crazy,” you might say, but if you make such a statement, you obviously haven’t participated in many armed confrontations.

If you have experience, you’re likely shaking your head thinking about the times when you produced your Wunderblast Custom Shop Pistol to defend truth, justice, and the American Way, only to discover the dirtball on the other side of the equation wasn’t scared.
