TacticalPay Gear Picks of The Week

Nick had some great recommendations for gear AND general self defense training. Here are a few highlights from this episode.

CZ-USA Handguns

If you’re looking for a more broad recommendation for handguns (rather than a specific model), then Nick suggested listeners check out CZ-USA Handguns. CZ-USA handguns offer unparalleled quality for anyone interested in protection, hunting, or competition. With a multitude of different makes and models, there is no shortage of options. Everything from Large-Format Pistols to their Polymer Omega Series and Sub-Compact Series offers precision and quality to meet your needs.

Glock 17

This handgun is designed for professionals. The Glock 17 in 9×19 is actually the most used law enforcement pistol worldwide. With the rare combination of reliability, above-average magazine capacity (17 rounds standard), and a comfortable low weight, it has become extremely trusted by law enforcement officers around the world. In addition to these features, it also boasts an incredible “Safe Action” trigger system. For a reliable weapon in high pressure situation (where quick action is needed), this is a handgun Nick would recommend you consider.

88 Tactical

88 Tactical is an elite training organization that has a primary goal of helping families, individuals, military members, and emergency service workers handle any challenging situation or crisis. When it comes to self defense, or simply being a alert and ready to handle any situation the first person ready to act is the true “first responder.” Nick highly recommends their tactical training in firearms, self-defense, anti-bullying, self-rescue, field medicine, bushcraft and survival, and more.
