I have been to most of FOC’s Industry Spotlights and this may very well have been the best one yet! I had a great time checking out the new Surefires and doing the low light force on force training! Not to mention shopping!
As a big Surefire fan I was very pleased with the selection…practically everything in their lineup was on display or at least well represented.
Let’s start with the UDR Dominator, with 2,400 lumens!
Some of the many new lights for this year, the Scout with duel fuel, Fury with 1500 lumens, the Tactician collaboration with James Yaeger, and the Backup now with MaxVision and 400 Lumens.
A closeup of the Tactician
And with the Classic G2ZK, which is what I used in the training and I loved it!
I know it is not the newest design but I think it might have been my favourite of the day.
You can see the MaxVision version of the G2Z here along with the Tactician and E2D Defender
Sidekick, Firepack, Stilletto, Guardian
The Firepack attached to your smartphone..and gives you 1500 Lumens!!!
I saw the Stilletto at SHOT 2018…it is meant to be carried like a pocket knife. A more powerful version, the Pro, was released at this year’s SHOT
EDC, Aviator, and Backup
Wristlights…they didn’t have the Luminox version
Fortunately I brought mine 😊
Now on to weaponights
MasterFire holster system…there is a slider outside the holster that allows you to control whether the light comes on or not upon withdrawal…very cool!
More weaponlights on display
And weapon accessories, including muzzle brakes, suppressors (at least trainers) and a rebar cutter!
Rapid Transition sights
We all got Sonic Defender ear protectors as a gift…thanks..and also for the tshirt!
There was also a display of Wiley X eyewear to check out
Note the foam lining
Looking at all those Surefires sure put me in the mood for Chimera’s Low Light very informative seminar
After the classroom session, we headed to the range for some hands on training! We started with drills using handheld and weapon mounted lights including transitioning between the two. I learned A LOT from the experience!
Then we did some force on force training using SIRT guns! I didn’t get any pics as it was pitch black and it is kinda hard to take pics and avoid gun fire lol. It was an awesome experience! I plan to sign up for some Chimera courses.
Last but not least, some shopping!
This one almost brings a tear to the eye as it might be the last time I can hold one of these if the liberals get their way.
While we are feeling nostalgic, a S&W 4556 for you Miami Vice fans.
A rare Sig P320 PRO Series, which is essentially a P320 X-Carry frame mated with a full-sized P320 X-FIVE slide.
Also pretty rare, the Remington Little Beaver, a 14” factory barrelled mag-fed 870
And Remington 870 Police Magnum with Walnut Furniture
I have an MR223 in black and I wanted to have a closer look at the RAL..very nice
I also wanted to have another look at the SFP…the trigger felt better than the P30L…I would love to shoot one
And now for something different lol…a Performance Centre Hunter in .44magnum
Ok who wore it better, me or brasslovingbrunette???
While browsing the store I noticed a huge new supply of Grey Fox Strategic holsters…great gear and I really like the new hillbilly flannel camo pattern!
And since many of you ask, at the excellent suggestion of a fellow CGNer, I hit Angelique’s for breakfast….Philly Steak, eggs, and hashbrowns to be specific
All in all a fantastic event and a fantastic day!
Thanks FOC, keep up the great work!
