Best Law Enforcement Gear from SHOT Show 2020
By Sean Curtis
SHOT Show is an enormous affair and many vendors market specifically, sometimes exclusively, to law enforcement. As a cop prowling through the law enforcement sections, I took note of great gear that could make an officer’s life better—sometimes even save it. These items range in price and size, but they were all noteworthy for various reasons.

This innovative company came out with a hardy vertical foregrip a few years ago that could rotate nearly any direction you preferred. More recently, they’ve created an entire stabilizing system called the Overwatch Commander. The setup consists of vertical support for rifles that ends in a tripod on a ball socket. This allows rifles to be stabilized from several angles. However, the tripod can then be attached to an even longer, expandable monopod which connects to yet another tripod several feet below. There is another ball socket at the base creating even more adjustability for angles.
Consider the first tripod suitable for a seated or prone position while the extension is better for standing shooting. The whole system is ruggedly designed yet weighs just under 6-pounds. Prices vary depending on an array of options
