The police firearm is an officer's most distinctive piece of service equipment. Each year a significant number of law enforcement personnel are shot with their own weapons. Weapon retention training as well as weapon disarming procedures are critical law enforcement skills. In addition, police personnel must learn to routinely carry firearms and master the safe handling of weapons under stress. Officers must acquire weapon safety skills for use while moving, when searching and during room clearance procedures. Red Guns provide rugged, lightweight training replicas that are precisely detailed to create a safe training environment. They provide a safe means of training law enforcement personnel to handle, transport, retain and present firearms.
All too frequently, law enforcement officers have been killed in a training environment with "unloaded" firearms. Red handled weapons can be confused with live firearms when held in the hand. Aluminum castings are heavy and cannot be distinguished from stainless weapons at a distance. The Red Gun Series is lightweight and readily identified as a training weapon.
In addition, the extreme detail and precision manufacture of these training devices allows their use in weapon retention and holster security drills. The red polymer and the manner in which they are reinforced allows them to withstand the daily abuses of the training environment.
The Red Gun Series is ideal for all types of scenario training. The precision fit allows their use with duty holsters. Red Radios and Flashlights are valuable additions to sudden assault training on the firing line. The flexible Red Knife allows officers to rehearse responses to edged weapon attacks. The Red Gun Series can also be specially produced to the exact weight of a loaded duty firearm.
