Weapon Retention – Defending your Firearm

Weapon retention is very important and it is actually your brain that works as your best defense when it comes to countering someone grabbing for your weapon. The key to this is employing a good mindset along with being very aware and make use of sound tactics.

Many who have had a battle for weapon retention can tell you that looking back they cant tell you what mistake they made that allowed the situation to take place. Some may just have allowed someone to get too close while other may have been in condition white while for others it occurred as they were covering someone or searching someone by hand. Just know that it is not always poor tactics that give an attacker an opportunity to grab for your weapon but you can help minimize the risk with weapon retention training.

Weapon Retention - Range Master Tactical GearSo why should weapon retention be taught? We are all humans and we will always make mistakes, so why the the training? It is always good to have a plan especially after making a mistake. The minute someone tries to take your weapon you are immediately placed into a situation where you must fight for your life.

There are in fact two different training options for weapon retention for handguns; retaining a hand held weapon and retaining a holstered weapon. But before training you want to ensure that you have the best quality equipment for carrying your weapon. Purchasing your weapon carry items should not be done based on price but must be done based on style. The basics will be a holster and a belt – if either of these are poor quality then it will be easy to remove your weapon. You can find high quality belts and holsters right here on our website.

The next thing you want to consider is mode of carry. You should ensure that your weapon is always concealed if you are a civilian or an off duty law enforcement officer. People won’t be going after your gun if they don’t know that you have one. If you are a law reinforcement officer on duty, you definitely want to invest in a retention holster that is of high quality. But you can’t rely on simply the retention capabilities of your holster. You may also want to get an edged weapon that you can use if your firearm is under attack or a fixed blade knife that you can carry on the weak side of your belt and of course learn sound tactics.

You can be attacked from behind, from either side or from in front but wherever they come from you will need to act immediately to start defending your weapon and your life. You first action will be to trap the gun with your strong hand into its holster. You do this by applying a large amount of downward pressure. You will have to do this while moving because standing still will make it easier for your attacker.  It is recommended that you move around rapidly in tight circles. This can cause pain and injury to the attacker if you are holding their hand while applying the downward pressure to your holster. Moving quickly will cause your attacker to respond to your actions instead of concentrating on his, while you’ re doing this you can be using your weak hand to inflict pain or use the edged weapon mentioned above. There is no room for failure as your failure may mean the end of your life.

You can find a number of holsters and belts here as well as edged weapons that can be used to inflict pain while you fare enforcing your weapon retention training and fight for your life. Find all the products you need right here at Range Master Tactical Gear.

Tactical Gear for a Police Duty Belt

A police officer’s duty belt is where all the tactical gear they need for duty is kept. Once on duty the police officer will wear their duty belt with them at all times. Though the exact items may differ by municipality there are some items that are include on an officer’s duty belt no matter where they work.

Generally the tactical gear that is stored and carried on a police officer’s duty belt include;

  • A tactical flashlight
  • Handcuffs
  • A baton
  • A radio
  • A handgun
  • Ammunition
  • Pepper Spray/ Battery Powered Stunning Device

Police Officer's Duty Belt - Range Master Tactical GearNo matter what the items are they must be made from heavy duty materials and will provide maximum performance.

Being a police officer can be very stressful and danger can arise at a moment’s notice. And so police officers must be prepared and a part of this preparation is with defensive weapons. Those that may come to mind readily include a baton and a handgun but these are not the only tools that an officer must rely upon.

All the items, no matter what they are should be reliable and high quality and that is why not just any gear is used but instead high quality tactical gear is used. They also need to have high quality tactical gear accessories as well for example a high quality flashlight may need backup batteries which you will need to carry where they can be readily accessed – in the duty belt. In many instances you will find that officers will have two tactical flashlights; a battery operated flashlight and a rechargeable flashlight.

Tactical gear carried on a police officer’s belt can even help to save their lives and some of them are just for the convenience of their jobs. For example they can carry an ink pen and small notebook or a cell phone. But they must be realistic about what the additional items they choose to carry when out in the field.

A duty belt that weighs too much will cause fatigue especially on longer shifts or for shifts where the officer is physically involved for example during an on foot chase etc. Given the fact that a radio and its holster, a handgun and its holster along with a tactical flashlight and its holster are not lightweight items the weight can add up fast. So unnecessary items can be more of an hindrance than a help.

Since the items used on duty belt can get heavy they must be evenly distributed so that the weight can be as well. This will help to minimize the risk of back strain and this helps the officer to be more efficient. Since they can become used to the items being a particular place they can be easily and quickly accessed.

The duty belt is definitely very important to a police officer. You can find some of the items police officers use on their duty belts here at Range Master Tactical Gear. Find tactical flashlights and their accessories as well as holsters and other items.
