Vigilance Tactical Benchmade Low Profile Safety Hook Carrier

I picked up a few Benchmade Low Profile Safety Hook Carriers a few years ago and they have been great. The only real drawback, and it is a fairly large drawback, is that these nifty little Kydex Safety Hook sheaths can only be used in PALS webbing columns with no gaps between the rows which limits their placement. Vigilance Tactical has now found a way to overcome that issue in the form of a small webbing loop that can be placed on the carrier.

The Benchmade Low Profile Safety Hook Carrier is a slim Kydex sheath for excellent Benchmade Safety Hooks (see our review) that can be slipped into a column of PALS webbing. It is hooked at the top and bottom so that once it is in place, it is retained by the webbing. The space inside the PALS webbing column is so narrow that the sides of the sheath must be open which means that if it isn’t completely surrounded by webbing, it can slip out the side of the sheath during the draw and potentially cut your PALS webbing. This is why, previously, you were limited to solid PALS webbing columns instead of columns that skip rows which, unfortunately, is the way most PALS grids are configured.


Now, for an additional $1.25, Vigilance Tactical will include PALS Webbing Filler that corrects this issue. I highly recommend the Benchmade Low Profile Safety Hook Carrier as an easy and accessibly way to carry your safety cutter and I highly recommend that you add the PALS Row Filler to your order to maximize its versatility.

OC Tactical Introduces the KGB

OC Tactical just rolled out their new KGB or Kickass Grocery Bag. The bag is overbuilt to handle anything you can cram into it. It is constructed from 1000D Cordura nylon with a layer of waterproof Vinyl Coated Polyester on the bottom. All cloth edges have been bound or covered and the handles are stitched along their entire length to handle heavy loads. The KGBs fold flat for storage but hold their shape for loading thanks to the reinforced bottom.

These bags are at home riding in your trunk for a quick trip to the store or carting your gear to the range. Check out the new KGB at OC Tactical.


KCT AK Low Mass Magazine Carriers

Kinetic Concepts Tactical just introduced a new AK magazine carrier that they say will work with any AK magazine – polymer, steel, aluminum, 7.62, or 5.45 – it doesn’t matter. That is impressive considering the wide range of shapes and dimensional differences exhibited in AK magazines from around the world. Check out the KCT AK Low Mass Magazine Carriers.

Suarez International Flat and Straight Glock Trigger

I like flat triggers. I first started using them back with 1911s. Then I tried Geissele Automatic’s Super Dynamic trigger bow and fell in love. Now that generally shoot Glock handguns, I have been on the look out for a flat trigger to install in my Glocks. While they did exist, they generally cost more than I was willing to spend on them until I ran across the Suarez International Flat and Straight Glock Trigger.


The benefits of straight triggers are two-fold. First, they usually increased the trigger reach a touch which helps ensure that I am using the correct part of my finger to pull the trigger. Second, they give the trigger a more consistent feel because no matter where the pad of your finger contacts the trigger face, it feels the same. This also means that you can place your finger lower on the trigger to apply more leverage, making the trigger feel lighter.

Saurez International’s Flat and Straight Glock Trigger has a steel trigger bar like the stock part but it is polished to smooth the trigger pull. The trigger and trigger safety are machined from 6061-T6 aluminum and hard anodized to a dark black color. The trigger safety is wider than the stock trigger safety to ensure positive disengagement.

The Flat and Straight Trigger is available for Gen 1-4 9mm/.40SW/.357SIG/.45ACP/10MM Glocks and for the Glock 36/42/43. It is available separately or as part of a complete and tuned trigger system. Check out the Flat and Straight Glock Trigger at Suarez International.
