Ramifications of Tactical Gear Being Sold Online

There have been reports that the tactical gear that was worn by the Colorado shooter at the Aurora theatre is being sold online. Let us be the first say that the gear that he was wearing was really high tech stuff that should not be available to the general population so they can be easily purchased online. At Range Master Tactical Gear we offer a wide range of tactical gear to the general public but when it comes to certain items only law enforcement officers or military personnel can purchase them. And we do our duty to ensure that the individuals requesting the items are indeed who they say they are and the proper paperwork and procedures are followed to ensure that items don’t end up in the wrong hands.

It is very chilling to think that websites can be so irresponsible as to sell these types of items to the general public. What James Holmes the shooter at the Aurora movie theater in Colorado was wearing is riot gear. He was fully dressed in helmet, throat protector, vest, groin protector and leggings. If he had not willingly surrendered to the authorities they would have found it hard to bring down this man – thank God he surrendered.

How can the average citizen feel safe knowing the bad guys have as much armor and equipment as the law enforcement officers and possibly even more. How can we protect ourselves if this is what our country has come to? Sellers need to be more responsible in what they sell and who they sell these items to. Sellers should only sell such heavy duty items to police enforcement agencies and not even to single police officers and military personnel as they sometimes due to the pressure of their work make mistakes and take out innocent people in the same time.

If you want a reputable seller who upholds moral standards such as not allowing anybody to get hold of heavy duty tactical gear then you can count on Range Master Tactical Gear. We do not sell these types of items to the general public and we applaud other sellers who do the same. Those that do we urge them to look at their practices and look at the potential damage that can take place because of their actions. They should be held partially responsible when innocent people die due to the fact that they sold some psychopath gear that should only be found in the military or in other professional law enforcement environments.

ImageWe have to stop the madness somehow and making it so that only law enforcement agencies can purchase certain items this will make it less likely for certain items to end up in the hands of villain. This is the main way we can protect our families, our neighbors and our fellow country men from the rants of the wicked and those that do not value life. Let us speak out about the many websites offering tactical gear for sale to the person who is willing to pay the asking price.

5.11 Tactical Moving Jobs from Modesto to Irvine

5.11 Tactical has their corporate headquarters in Modesto but in the summer they moved 40 jobs from Modesto to a development center in Irvine. The operations center is still in Modesto and only those 40 positions were moved to this new development center.

The company’s CEO stated that the move was done in order to facilitate a better environment for product designers and developers so that they could delve deeper into their creative talent by pooling all persons in the same physical location. As such it was the persons with jobs within the product management, product development, e-commerce and marketing departments that were moved to Irvine. The Sales, Customer Service, Logistics, Finance and Operations staff stayed behind in Modesto and so did the warehouse and the custom shop.

The whole idea of the change is for the company to be able to drive more innovation. The CEO who already lives in Irvine and who has lived there for 15 years states that he does most of his work there and returns to the Modesto office every other week at minimum.

The CEO of the Stanislaus Economic Development & Workforce Alliance notes that he was sad to see jobs leave the area as in March there was a 17.4% jobless rate. He further goes on to state that it is sad to see some of the jobs go since 5.11 Tactical was born in Modest and has grown there ever since.

Though a majority of the workers transferred to Irvine there was still room for more new workers and since Irvine is home to major apparel companies such as Hurley, Volcom, Quiksilver and Oakley there were a number of young and talented designers were eager job takers. This benefits the company since in Modesto they would have design positions open for months without being able to find the right individual for the job.

With operations in Irvine the company is now able to work with bigger law enforcement departments that are found in Irvine, Los Angeles and Anaheim. It also benefits the Modesto office since some of their finance department has been working across the road for a couple years now. Now with departments moving the entire finance department will be in one general space which will allow the work flow to be more cohesive.

They had no plans of downsizing and so the employees who did not move to Irvine were offered job positions in the Modesto office though they may have been offered a different role. Just a small amount of individuals ended up losing their jobs. Davin noted that change is always tough but overall it benefits the company and the consumers they serve.


5.11The Irvine development is home to the first prototype facility that 5.11 Tactical has had in house. This means changes to the 5.11 Tactical lines of products. The company is slated to launch fitness and hunting products in the early part of 2013. This will really open the consumer base of the company as now there will be more regular individuals purchasing, wearing and using 5.11 products.

Keep up on the Latest Police News with a Tactical Blog

If you don’t watch the news then a lot of interesting stories may pass you. This is where a tactical blog can help keep you abreast of what is going on. Take for example a story about a police officer in Santa Mara California that was killed at his attempted arrest. This story was found on the blog of a tactical website. According to the incident reported the officer was killed on the 29th of January as they were attempting to arrest him. He was accused of sex crimes.

It is alleged that he forced a 17 year old in the police explorer program to have sex with him by threatening the safety of her family. The 17 year old described the police officer as a predator in her statement against him and has sued his widow who has only been married for three weeks. The story came out when the youngster told a relative that she was in a relationship with the police officer. It is stated that other members of the police force knew about the relationship and that these kinds of relationships are common in the explorer program.

These stories may seem like soap operas but they are indeed real life incidents that you probably wouldn’t learn about even if you watched the news. We tend to mostly watch local news and often times when we hear stories of what happens in other cities we think that it could never happen in our city but this is far from the truth as there are a lot of cases across the United States of abuse of power by police personnel and not just sexually speaking.

Staying abreast of a blog can help you to keep up with what is happening locally, nationally and internationally with our law enforcement teams. This can help us to get rid of corrupt individuals because the more eyes that are on a particular incident or case is the more likely that they will do the right thing and weed out the bad cops out of the system. Otherwise they may just try to cover up and save face. For example a story like this would have never gotten my attention if I had not seen it on a law enforcement blog.

They not only help you keep abreast of bad news but also keep us abreast of good news as well. The good news in this case is that the police caught up with the two partners in crime who have plagued not only all our 50 states but other countries with their cunning methods of thievery. They were guilty of stealing from stores all over the US and were finally caught in Florida. It is really comforting to know through a tactical blog that the law enforcement officers are driven to catch menacing culprits or bandits at all costs.

Blogs of this nature are really efficient and extremely vital to keeping us abreast of the issues that plague our society and even other neighbouring countries that are directly linked to our country.

Tactical Clothing: How to Pick an Excellent Air-soft Vest

Yes, an Air-soft vest is considered tactical clothing – because it protects you from the pellets that are being fired as these can injure you significantly without the vests. You don’t have to be employed in the tactical forces to get the adrenaline rush of the call to duty, you can create your own tactical world by playing Air-soft. When buying an Air-soft vest there are many aspects that you should consider. Here are just a few things to consider before purchasing this type of vest.


  • Make sure that the vest is tightly sewn and of course that its color and other design elements are well suited for you – just for personal preference reasons. You want to ensure that you get the best fit so that you will be very comfortable as you play. If you plan to be playing in the heat you should look for a lightweight one that has breathable features so that you won’t be smothered and end up with heat stroke. Stay away from vests that have a glazed appearance on the interior if you will be playing in warm weather.


  • You will likely be carrying a number of devices on you while you play the game, thus you want to ensure that your vest has enough pockets to accommodate all your items. You don’t just want to have pockets everywhere but in places that can be easily and conveniently accessed. Newer vests feature MOLLE attachment points so that you can customize where your pockets are but if you have older vests then you will be dealing with fixed pockets. Before you buy, find out about all the gear that you will need to have stowed on you so you can ensure you can have all your items in the right place.


  • Choose a vest that is made with high quality resilient material this not only ensures your protection during game play but also ensures that your vest will last for many years providing you with value for money. The material is not the only thing you have to worry about as you also have to think about the durability of the zippers and any Velcro closures or attachment points that may be present on the vest. Purchasing a high quality vest that is more expensive now means less maintenance costs in the future so over time you will be saving money if you make a good initial investment.


  • If purchasing your vest in a physical store you are encouraged to try it on and move around in the store to see how comfortable it is. Never mind the people, chances are if you are buying this in a store, anybody in there will not think you strange for doing what you are doing. It’s not like they sell tactical clothing at the grocery store so people there will be “your kind”. Try a range of motions that you would do while playing the game to ensure its compatibility. If you won’t be purchasing in a store but online then you will have to rely on some reviews. A good brand to choose form is 5.11 Tactical as they are known for providing high quality, durable and strong gear.
