FN 45 Tactical suppressed pistol

I got my hands on one of these to play with for a while.  My first impressions turned out to be my lasting impressions.

The weapon is light weight, low recoil, high capacity, and accurate.  Reliability was 100% with 5 differnt loads fired through it; 3 of which were handloads that another .45 pistol would not cycle reliably.

The suppressor is a SilencerCo 45 Osprey.  The pistol had zero malfunctions or issues of any kind while using the suppressor as well.

The clothes are Adder System CCW line by Berne Apparel.  The vest and coat are already released and selling online and in over 500 retail stores nationwide.  The pants are a sneak peak at the 2016 line of Adder pants coming in stores in just a few months.  Summer 2016.

SDC Surviving Deadly Contact course

Kelly-Alwood-LOGO14This was the latest course, last week Oct 2014 in St. George Utah with OnPoint Tactical.

Course: Surviving Deadly Contact

This class will be hands on training, force on force with paintballs, and live fire with pistol and carbine. Students will learn learn the rules of combat, shoot and move. Every game has rules and those who do not know the rules will definitely lose.

  • What is the most dangerous place in a room?
  • What is the order you engage your targets?
  • What are the levels of cover?
  • How do you handle multiple opponents?

If you don’t know the rules, you can’t win..(other than pure luck)…
This class focuses on real life threat scenarios: a shooting or robbery in Walmart, attempted carjacking, scuffle at the restaurant, muggings in the mall parking lot, home invasion.

Handgun penetration tests on cars

I did this test at a police range in Indiana.  We got a car, opened the doors, and shot through them.  On this test we used the FN 5.7×28 and the Glock 35 .40 calibers.

The first pictures here are of the 5.7 round.  The round was the American Eagle fmj.

car door shot Kelly Alwood IMG_4110

In both cases, and multiple angles shot, the rounds deflected slightly upwards.  The impact on the second door was higher than were the round struck the first door, even firing at a downward angle.  There is approximately a two foot gap between the doors.

These are the results for the .40 cal

This is the .40 cal shot through the trunk and went through the back seat, into the dash.  All the .40  rounds used were Gold Dot HP.

This last picture is the windshield.  We fired at a target in the drivers seat, and 12 feet in front of the front bumper, all through the back window.  All rounds went through the back window and the front windshield.  The rear window did not deflect rounds enough to miss the man size target in the drivers seat.  The windshield did not deflect the rounds enough to miss the human target 12 feet in front of the bumper.

Kelly tests Huntertown Arms new suppressor on 7″ M4

I get the opportunity to see Steve, the owner of Huntertown Arms pretty regularly.

I get to see and test out many of his new products before they go public.  Here I test a 7″ M4 with his new suppressor at a Police Department.
