I got to spend the day attending Kim Heath's Rifle 104 class for seven hours of trigger time and quality instruction.
We began by firing single rounds downrange and then taking a step back to warm up. We then moved on to lateral movement drills as standing still while shooting should feel ackward to police officers. Then it was on to malfunction clearing drills, transitioning from rifle to pistol, shown some alternative ways to hold the rifle, did some weak hand shooting…Continue

Hello everyone and welcome back to the Women’s Tactical Association Workout of the Week. We are going to switch gears and start working with our rifles. If you don’t have a rifle, feel free to follow along with your shotgun.
Make sure your rifle is unloaded first. I’m a big fan of the CBD, Chamber Blocking Device. It does just that, and gives an excellent visual indicator to everyone else around that your chamber is blocked. When you want it out, you…Continue

Unless you are Starla from Napoleon Dynamite, pull-ups pretty much suck for women. My original plan for this installment of Fight Like a Girl was to research the anatomical differences that account for the upper body strength disparities among men and women but then I though…who gives a crap? If you are a police officer, the bad guy certainly doesn’t care if you stand up or sit down when…Continue

I used to work in an outdoor gear store that sold knives and I became particularly fond of a piece by William Henry. It had a carbon fiber handle that fit my hand well, and a blade that was razor sharp. The shape of the blade was a little bit wider than normal. It could cut me out of most anything I’d get…Continue

To summarize this class and what I learned was that women are different than men, to keep in the mindset of being a warrior, and to learn not only from those who have fallen but from those who have won. Sgt. Smith is an incredible speaker who can relate to the students.
Not only keeping myself guarded and in the game, a lesson that I found interesting was about the analogy of the different usages of the hemisphere's of the brain (Male and female). Sgt. Smith gave the students…Continue

VERY proud of our initial newsletter. For some reason, pregnant cops continues to be a perplexing issue for some police agencies:
Although he is most famous for shaking his bum on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars; J. R. Martinez is much more than a dancer. He spoke at the Aria Hotel in Las Vegas on Feb. 21.; I was honored to hear his story firsthand. As the entire audience hung on his every word, J.R. laughed and joked about the deepest darkest…Continue
For those of us that have Iphones I was just recently advised of an app called Field Contact. It cost 4.99 but it is well worth the cost. With this app you can enter contact information plus photo and stop location right on your phone and it is password protected. Ive had it for a couple weeks and so far found it useful. Hope this helps
Our friends over at Bolo Report recently posted this article about the dangers of repeated chambering of the same bullet(s). If you routinely unload and reload a firearm, as most cops do, this is good information to have.
Have you dry fired today?

Hi everyone! My name is Jo Donner and I'm a Deputy with Milwaukee County. On February 6th, 48 of my brothers and sisters were laid off! This has been a political battle that has been going on for a couple of months, but rather that get into everything that is wrong with that, I'm here to ask for your help.
I'd first like to tell you about those deputies who have been laid off. They have a minimum of 8 years on the job, most with 10 and 11. They are NOT new hires, but rather…Continue
