Without a doubt the nicest and simplest precision torque driver on the market is the Borka Tools Adjustable Torque Driver.  We use these in the shop and they are amazing.  

All of the staff use Safariland Holsters for our main training and duty gear.  While buying a holster is very subjective and should be based on your personal needs, Safariland gear hasn't lead us down.  We are happy to show you various models at class so you can try before you buy.  All of our loaner holsters are Safariland ALS Belt Holsters.  

Optics are something that you should see as an investment with your firearm purchase.  Buying a quality scope or red dot sight will never be a bad purchase.  We use a variety of red dot sights and low power variable optics from quality brands like Aimpoint, Holosun, Trijicon and Kahles.  Depending on your budget there are several choices for quality, however these brands are all duty or pro grade and are priced accordingly.  There are some great other brands that serve the entry level market as well.  Being that our core firearms staff are all active LE and prior military, we know that having good gear is a requirement.  

Please note that we are not commissioned by any of these companies in a way that we receive commision or a kick back from any sales of the brands on this page.  We don't make a penny if you buy their products or not.  We just hate seeing students show up with subpar equipment and fight their gear during class.  What often happens is a student shows up with gear that isn't very good, realizes that and uses loaner gear and ends up buying equipment again. We would rather have students try before you buy and figure out what works well for you and is realistic to your needs.  If you have questions about gear or equipment, please ask us!

For small parts, mounts, optic mounts, lights and other accesories we use a variety of quality parts from the above shown companies.  Each of us has our own preference and chooses gear based on our own needs.  These brands have all proven to have good quality gear that not only holds up in training but also on duty.

Firearms & Suppressors

Our semi-autmatic rifles and ARs of choice are from Minnesota's own JP Enterprises.  We truly feel these are the finest AR's and precision semi-automatic rifles on the market.

Our handgun of choice is the Staccato 2011, a high performance firearm that is reliable, accurate and a joy to shoot.  

Our favorite silencers we've shot are from Dead Air.  The Keymo mounting system is arguable the most solid, the Sandman cans the most durable and the Nomad the most pleasant, you won't go wrong with a Dead Air suppressor.  


Everything Else


The finest quality safety glasses and ergonomic eye protection is from Rudy Project.  Looking for the best eye pro we have found, look no further than Rudy Project.
