SUREFIRE INTRODUCES NEW 2211 POLYMER WRIST LIGHT
SureFire, LLC, manufacturer of the world’s finest—and most innovative—illumination tools and tactical products, is now shipping the new 2211® Polymer WristLight. The rechargeable SureFire 2211® WristLight is a lightweight, cutting-edge tool that provides hands-free illumination for a broad range of lowlight scenarios. The 2211® is a phenomenal alternative to a headlamp or handheld and can be used for walking your dog, EDC and even in conjunction with a firearm.
When strapped to your support-side wrist, the 2211 naturally aligns with a handgun when the weapon is held with a standard two-handed grip, projecting plenty of light for threat identification at close-to-medium ranges. The WristLight utilizes our MaxVision Beam™ which creates a seamless wall of white light at three output levels: 300, 60 and 15 lumens. The first two output levels provide a tactical advantage by overwhelming an aggressor’s dark-adapted vision. The lowest output level is perfect for tasks that don’t require so much light, such as loading gear. The output series is programmable to go from high to low or from low to high.

THYRM INTRODUCES THE CELLVAULT CLEAR
First introduced in January 2016, the CellVault™ by Thyrm protects batteries and other important gear while keeping them accessible and organized. The product received critical acclaim and instant popularity with consumers. Yet Thyrm wanted to offer the option for users to identify the CellVault’s contents without opening it. With that, Thyrm introduces the CellVault Clear. The CellVault is still available in black, urban gray, olive drab, flat dark earth and rescue orange to match the user’s gear or intended environment. The IPX8 waterproof CellVault easily attaches to M.O.L.L.E. webbing and straps and features lanyard loops at both ends for more attachment options. The slim vertical profile utilizes less than one M.O.L.L.E. webbing column, giving you more room for other gear including first-aid kits, ammo and tools.
Storage possibilities include: three CR123 batteries, four AAA batteries, two AA batteries and small survival gear such as matches, hooks and line, a light stick, iodine tablets, a compass and lip balm. It can also hold items such as first-aid gear including hemostatic clotting agents, tweezers and bandages or consumables such as medication, instant coffee packets, electrolyte powder or candy. The CellVault is currently available at Thyrm dealers and at www.thyrm.com.

SPEER LE RAISES THE BAR FOR DUTY HANDGUN AMMUNITION–GOLD DOT G2
For years, Speer® Gold Dot® has been the pinnacle of duty handgun ammunition performance. New Gold Dot G2 builds on this reputation with a next-generation duty bullet design. Shipments of this new product are now being delivered to law enforcement dealers. Instead of a large cavity in the nose, Gold Dot G2 has only a shallow dish filled with a high-performance elastomer. On impact, the material is forced into specially designed fissures to start the expansion process, as opposed to conventional bullet designs, which need target media to enter the hollow point and create expansion forces. The results are extremely uniform expansion and more consistent penetration across barrier types, gun platforms and barrel lengths. The exclusive Gold Dot construction virtually eliminates core/jacket separation, and the new ammunition offers excellent reliability and feeding in duty firearms. It is available in 9-mm 147 grain, .40 S&W 180-grain and .45 Auto 230-grain. All rounds come in 50 round boxes. This product is sold to LE agencies and individual officers only.
