I have been a SWAT Officer for sometime now and I am always looking for the newest and best gear I can find. NcStar has a lot of items they sell and I really enjoyed their stuff I have gotten from them before in the past. So, I took a chance and bought a Tactical Vest from them to see. The vest comes with the holster, but I liked a different one and asked if they could change it out. “Of course they said.” Great! Once it arrived you know we always have to make it our own, by adjusting the gear to work for what I needed it to work for.
So it brings me to where I am right now! I am in the forest looking for a guy who has been shooting up live stock and even shot a couple, who he claimed was trespassing. This guy was wanted for murder and was on the run. We tried several times to track him down, but was unsuccessful. This time it was an all out man hunt.
I was walking in the woods 25 yards from my partner when all the sudden I hear a gun shot from right behind me. I felt a sting sensation, as the bullet grazed my leg putting me down on one leg. My partner turns around and yells, “freeze Police” as he points his weapon behind me. Next thing I know, I felt someone grabbing the vest in the back next to my neck and tells me to drop my gun. As I do, I can hear my partner and the guy behind me arguing back and forth. I reach for my pistol that was in the holster attached to my Tactical Vest on my chest. Pulling out the pistol and I immediately turn to face the guy, twisting and falling to my back I fired my pistol……….
Sorry folks, this has to be a rated “G” article! Anyway, this Tactical Vest I got from NcStar is very comfortable, adaptable to my needs and has ever pouch I could think of to help me in any situation! Way to go NcStar. I really like the belt attachment to the bottom of the vest. It keeps the vest from riding up on me when I am moving around or climbing through things. Check out what NcStar has to say about it:
