Dave Young: Selecting Your Concealment Holster

Reporting from SHOT Show, the following presentation was made possible by Uncle Mike's Law Enforcement.

“In an hour-long class there’s only enough time to provoke thought,” Dave Young says—which he then proceeded to do in spades.

Charles Humes to Present Free Training in Toledo, Ohio

Free police training—what’s the catch?

The Future is Already Here

At Motorola's Executive Summit yesterday, Paul Steinberg, Motorola chief technology officer, showed off a head-worn computer as he asked the perennial question: “What next?”

He looked to recent trends for clues.

“Tablets have revolutionized the PC within 18 months of their release,” says Steinberg. He also points to the prevalence of smartphones, social media and video as evidence of a shifting paradigm.

“The next phase of computing is contextual,” he says. In…
