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.

FDE 3-25-2011

READER SUBMITTED FDE (FASHIONABLE DEFENSE ENSEMBLE) 



Today's FDE was submitted by a 5 Rings Tactical reader who goes by the Twitter handle, "b_C_d". A recent spike in the number of armed robberies, home invasions, and burglaries in his area have convinced him to arm himself with reliable tools with which to defend himself and his family. As a proud father, b_C_d understands that he is responsible for both the safety of his children and their understanding of proper fashion accessorizing. A real man should look good but not pretty, and he should know the proper balance of form and function. Wanting to lead by example, b_C_d has chosen a soft and supple pair of Tod's driving moccasins in a dull blue hue to match his blue belt, effectively fusing comfort and fashion. A real man is also ready to defend those he loves, so b_C_d's eye-catching belt both looks good and supports the weight of his semi-compact sized "Baby Glock" pistol. The gun rides in a Comp-Tac Minotaur holster. Sticking with b_C_d's theme of balance, the Minotaur is a hybrid holster made of both kydex plastic and leather. This combination offers the beauty and comfort of leather with the low maintenance and toughness of properly formed kydex. Complimenting the 40 caliber Glock is Benchmade's Mini-Infidel knife, because you never know if it's a knife or a gun fight, and a gentleman always dresses for the occasion. Thank you b_C_d, for showing your kids that you can show up for your photo shoots for GQ and Guns and Ammo, and never have to even change clothes.
