Since it is not always practical to carry a handgun in your holster, John Benner designed the TDI Tactical Vest. It is made from 100% khaki-colored woven cotton and features a right chest pocket with pen holder and two reinforced waist pockets for discreet carry of weapons, all snap closure. Inside you will find a right chest pocket with Velcro® closure and two more waist pockets for additional conceal carry options. Three front brass snap closures.
Over my 34 year Law Enforcement Career I have purchased several methods to carry and or conceal my handguns. I own several different vests that either conceal and or carry my firearms. This vest stands out from the others, besides being well made it is also well designed. It does not look that "tactical" and allows me to carry in my front outside pockets if need be. This is great for U.C. work or for a citizen with a permit when we need to have a gun ready in hand for bad situations (dope deal in progress or a business person walking a large sum of money to the bank drop). You can walk with a hand in a pocket with a gun in hand if the situation calls for it. The only options I would like to see are colors and magazine/speed loader pockets inside. So far it has held up to Michigan weather with no wear and tear, I will get another when I finally wear this one out. Thanks for a great vest. "Little Joe"
Only a 33-year veteran police Lieutenant could truly understand what makes a knife effective for close-quarters defense. While serving as President and Chief Instructor of Tactical Defense Institute, John Benner saw time and time again what he already believed to be true from first-hand experience: In a conflict, fine motor skills deteriorate and gross motor skills are most effective for fending off assailants. Benner then set out to design a low-profile fixed blade knife for law enforcement, military and security personnel that could be drawn quickly and efficiently in times of duress. After more than a year of prototype samples and in-field testing, the Benner-approved TDI knife was put into production. The same basic principles that founded that first knife were incorporated into all future TDI models, which now complete an expansive line of tactical knives.
