About Me

I am a full-time law enforcement officer with experience in the Patrol, Tactical, and Gang Divisions and a part-time martial artist. I believe that law abiding citizens should learn to defend themselves with whatever tools they may legally carry. I am currently in the process of starting the "5 Rings Tactical" training school where I hope to encourage good people to become protectors of their own lives and the lives of their families. This blog will contain reviews of defensive and tactical products, all of which I have purchased with my own funds. I will try my best to give my honest and unbiased opinion of all the products featured. I hope to eventually make the items that prove to be of quality available to customers of 5 Rings Tactical. Before distributing any of these items, they will be purchased privately by me and evaluated. I do not pretend to be any type of expert or master. I'm just a guy trying to share my experiences with others. I am always looking for more training and good people to learn from.

Reader Submitted FDE 2-27-2011 (First Reader FDE)


This is the first reader submitted FDE that 5 Rings Tactical has received! Our reader has chosen to remain nameless. However I can say that he is a mild-mannered, financial analyst and a responsible US citizen. He considers himself to be a moderate liberal, but believes in being legally armed to protect himself and his loved ones. This cubicle commando wears subdued black work shoes to blend into the urban jungle, but unlike most of the other nine-to-fivers around him, he's got a Heckler and Koch P2000 in his waist. Equipped with the H&K LEM trigger and filled to the brim with Federal 9mm +P hollow-point ammunition, this hand cannon is ready to defend the office from terrorists, disgruntled ex-employees, and uncooperative copy machines. That Xerox can't blink "PC Load Letter" if it's leaking toner from 8 different holes.

5 Rings Tactical salutes this anonymous hero for being our first reader submitted FDE. Good day sir!


  1. whoa cool! i can relate to this posting as I TOO am a 9-5er that's lawfully equipped with a p2000 & +P HP, but unable to protect the office or its premises for 30.05 reasons. i am jealous of the lem trigger. this is a wonderfully reliable gun but the little bumper at the end of the clip can make it hard to conceal. otherwise, wonderfully reliable and accurate HK!

  2. Glad you enjoyed the post. You should send in an FDE as well and be featured. Email pictures and a little info about yourself and your gear to:
