AWSG Hard to Find Items

Dear AWSG Readers

From time to time friends ask me for help in finding tools or equipment for specific jobs that need to be done.  Over the years I have made contact with suppliers of all kinds of nifty toys and gizmos that I enjoy sharing with friends. Below you will find a short list of some very practical uncommon knives and other gear that should interest you.

Any knife made by Colonial Knife is available through AWSG at a generous discount on a special order basis. Those advertised here are just the ones that I try to keep in stock. The Kizlyar Vendetta knife is in stock and other models are available on special order always with a generous discount as well. Please keep in mind that Kizlyar is a Russian brand and from time to time supply lines get a bit constricted depending upon the Russian economy and our relations with the Russians.

RAP4 Force on Force Training

Yes, I am an old fart and my views of training are old school. Yes, folks who have known me for a long time have heard me refer to airsoft and paintball guns as “toys” for armed masturbators. Please feel free to enjoy seeing an old man eat his share of crow.

RAP4 has the best in training equipment and the best training personnel in the force on force paintball business.

RAP4’s very well thought out Operation End War scenario is as realistic as one can get without escalating to live fire. End War weapons are all magazine fed. There are no hoppers depending upon gravity feeding or spewing 200 rounds without a reload. If you are serious about getting the best force on force training and training equipment go to RAP4. Anything else will disappoint you.

R.A.P. AIR™ courses incorporates the S.E.T.S ™  system as part of our instructor and end-user courses. Unlike some of the other training systems, the Real Action Paintball Inc. and Air Soft products are very easy to use and do not require the changing of any duty weapon parts prior to training. The cost effectiveness blends in well with helping agencies maintain an efficient budget with this system.

The safety factor is a major plus with these systems given the fact that you can be training with the R.A.P. AIR™  program and if a situation arises, you can simply secure the weapon training systems and immediately grab your true weapons without having to change a thing. This will make for a safer and easier training environment.

The versatility of these systems helps us to develop not just law enforcement trainers but also well-trained military operators, executive protection agents and security specialists. Firearm ranges are hard to come by, and having these systems in place will help the “tactical intelligence” increase in each and every potential instructor and end-user.

AWSG appreciates its long standing relationship with the high quality folks of Chameleon Associates.

As an independent security consultant to a brand name bio-tech company, I first used Chameleon Associates’ “Demystifying Terrorism” CD-ROM as a training aid for their office and laboratory personnel.

The message “sank-in” on the first take.  Results were immediate and positive. The client’s problems with a locally based radical group dropped to zero thanks to employee awareness and in-house security response.    BR
