Each issue of The Police Marksman will feature a “Course of Fire” that police officers can use for their
own department’s training. Training courses can be shared and used “as is” or you may wish to modify
them as needed. If you have a firearms course that has worked well with your own department’s range
training, send it to us and we’ll pay you $50 if it’s chosen to be shared here. Try to keep the round count
at a single box of 50 rounds for pistol courses as we know today’s ammo budgets are challenging.
Courses with movement, cover, shields, low light, etc. are beneficial to all police officers, so follow the
standard instructional format like this issue’s course and e‐mail it to us at

SIG SAUER® P227R Training Bluegun from Ring’s Manufacturing

Introducing the SIG SAUER® P227R replica from Ring’s Manufacturing. The SIG SAUER® P227R is molded from solid blue polyurethane to differentiate it from a live weapon. The P227R is SIG’s latest addition to their “classic” P-series pistols and their first double-stack .45 ACP handgun. Patterned off the P220 and P226, the pistol has a capacity of 10+1 rounds of the large-caliber cartridge with flush-fit magazines and 14+1 with extended factory magazines.

Blueguns’ SIG SAUER® P227R is a 1:1 exact replica of the original Sig P227R, allowing officers to train in safe, realistic tactical scenarios without the need to use their duty firearms. All Blueguns are 100 percent manufactured in the USA.

Aimpoint Carbine Optic Sight

Aimpoint announced the introduction of a new sight designed specifically for modern sporting rifles such as the AR-15. This new product, known as the Aimpoint Carbine Optic (ACO), expands upon the company’s already proven designs and focuses these features into a high-quality, entry priced optic. This new sight is ready to mount and shoot directly out of the box. A full suite of branded accessories, such as front and rear flip covers, an anti-reflection filter, and spare battery holders are available from dealers, and allow users to customize the sight to fit their specific requirements. The ACO pairs a 30mm aluminum alloy sight tube with an extremely rugged fixed height mount designed to provide absolute co-witness with AR-15 backup iron sights. A two-minute of angle (2 MOA) red dot is utilized to allow maximum target acquisition speed and accuracy at all distances. The ACO is completely waterproof, and offers one year of constant-on use from a single 1/3N battery. The Aimpoint Carbine Optic has a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price of $393.


The ATN X-Sight Day/Night Rifle Scope Line

American Technologies Network Corp. (ATN) announced that the long-awaited ATN X-Sight 3-12x and 5-18x HD Day/Night rifle scopes have begun shipping to distributors. The X-Sight rifle scopes utilize the newest in electro-optical technologies with an advanced HD sensor, providing superb image quality with high resolution at an affordable price. Now hunters can capture their expeditions in stunning 1080p high definition both day and night.

Each riflescope features ATN’s Smart HD optics suite that allows the user to choose from a variety of options and features, customizing the system to a specific application. Features include record HD video, WiFi, GPS, E-Compass, and Geotag to name a few. Plus, as new firmware is created and more features added, the X-sight can be upgraded by the customer with a simple do-it-yourself firmware upgrade.

The X-Sight Day/Night Rifle Scope has a high-resolution day/night sensor that can be switched between modes so during the day the user can look through the HD scope like any other daytime scope, while at night or in darkness, the sensor can be turned on and the scope can be used like a night vision scope. A new, more powerful IR illuminator allows the user to see in total darkness. The ATN X-Sight Day/Night rifle scopes also feature high-power digital zoom capabilities from 3x magnification to 12 x or 5x to 18x.

Colt M.A.R.C. 901™ Modular AR Carbine

Colt’s Manufacturing Company evolved its highly popular LE901®-16S modular carbine design by introducing the new M.A.R.C. 901™ (modular AR carbine) product family. This family of modular and customizable carbines features four new models: LE901®-16SE, LE901®FDE-16SE, LE901®-18SE and AR901™-16S. All-new “SE” models in the M.A.R.C. 901 family feature a monolithic upper receiver with a fixed rail at the 12 o’clock position and provisions to mount rails at the 3, 6 and 9 o’clock positions. The AR901 features a flat-top upper receiver and a tubular forend, with provisions to mount rails at various positions. Three SE models, the LE901-16SE, LE901FDE-16SE and LE901-18SE, all also feature ambidextrous operating controls for the magazine release and bolt catch, and a single-side reversible fire selector. All three of these models are designed with a free-float barrel, VLTOR™ buttstock and locking folding sights. Unique to the LE901FDE-16SE is the flat dark earth finish on the upper and lower receiver, along with FDE furniture. For users who prefer a longer barrel, the LE901-18SE with its 18-inch barrel is the optimal choice. The LE901-16SE and LE901FDE-16SE models weigh 8.42 pounds and all models have a 1/12 RH twist. The fifth model in the M.A.R.C. 901 family, the AR901-16S, is the perfect balance between LE901 quality and affordability. It features a free-floated barrel and user-configurable tubular handguard with rail mounting provisions beyond the standard 3, 6, 9 and 12 o’clock positions to include rail mounting positions on 16 different planes. The AR901-16S has a B5 Bravo buttstock and measures 34.24 inches with the stock retracted, or 37.5 inches with the stock extended. It has a 1/12 RH twist and weighs 8.24 pounds.

Laser Ammo Airsoft Laser Training Solutions

Laser Ammo announced the new Recoil Enabled Airsoft Laser (R.E.A.L) conversion kit for KWA ATP Airsoft pistols for full blow-back laser training, and the LA FLASH – a flash suppressor adapter for Airsoft rifles. The R.E.A.L conversion kit includes a replacement drop in barrel that currently fits the KWA ATP Airsoft pistols. Installation of the R.E.A.L kit is done simply by replacing the stock barrel with their kit assembly. Also, the LA FLASH is a high-end CNC machined flash suppressor adapter that replaces the stock flash guard on any “off the shelf” Airsoft rifle. Together with the new for 2015 vibration activated SureStrike™ cartridge (sold separately), both the R.E.A.L. and the LA FLASH will turn your Airsoft rifle / KWA ATP pistol to a laser emitting full blow back training pistol simulating a real firearm. Users can immediately start training with any of Laser Ammo electronic targets, training software or Smokeless Range® simulators with 100% safety. With the LA FLASH and R.E.A.L. conversion kits, shooters can develop and maintain their shooting skills, practice stance, enhance gun presentation. Also shooters can improve sight alignment, sight picture, breath control, trigger pull, and follow through – all with weapon full cycle and blow back. Without a doubt, the closest training to a real live ammo training and within the convenience of your own home.


Laser Ammo USA .380 SureStrike™ Cartridge

The SureStrike™ .380 Cartridge from Laser Ammo USA, Inc. allows users to develop and maintain their shooting skills: practice stance, gun presentation, sight alignment, sight picture, breath control, trigger pull, and follow through all while saving money using dry-fire training techniques. The SureStrike™ eliminates the need for a dedicated training firearm as it can be loaded into the shooter’s firearm to perform any drill with immediate feedback that the shooter can see and hear!

The SureStrike™ .380 dry-fire training system fits directly in any 380 caliber firearms breech and unlike other laser cartridges that are activated by vibration, is activated by the impact of the striker or firing pin to emit an eye-safe laser pulse simulating the point of impact. This feature eliminates the possibility of misfires and ensures more realistic training. A live round cannot be loaded in the breech loading system, making it completely safe while training. The SureStrike™ .380 cartridge works with any type of target: paper, reflective or interactive targets such as Laser Ammo’s LaserPET™, AIMWELL’s and L.A.S.R. Software. The SureStrike™ cartridges can also be programmed to work with a variety of firearms training simulators.

The heart of every SureStrike™ Cartridge is a computer microprocessor that controls the laser beam, allowing the shooter a guaranteed 5,000+ shots and offers multiple training pulses: Bore Sight Cap, Multi-Mode or both. The SureStrike™ System also contains sleeping mode for long-lasting training. Powered by silver-oxide dry cell batteries, the laser emits an eye-safe class 3a beam. Another advantage is all your training will be lead-free. The .380 SureStrike™ Cartridge comes with three reflective targets, user guide, and battery pack.


Ruger 9mm LCR®

Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. announced the 9mm LCR®, the newest variation of the revolutionary Lightweight Compact Revolver (LCR). The newest LCR retains all the features of the critically acclaimed original LCR. Its double-action-only trigger pull is uniquely engineered with a patented Ruger® friction-reducing cam-fire control system. The trigger pull force on the LCR builds gradually and peaks later in the trigger stroke, resulting in a trigger pull that feels much lighter than it actually is. This results in more controllable double-action shooting, even among those who find traditional double-action-only triggers difficult to operate.

The LCR is elegantly designed with three main components: a polymer fire control housing, an aerospace-grade, aluminum monolithic frame, and an extensively fluted stainless-steel cylinder. When originally introduced, the Ruger LCR revolver was one of the most significant new revolver designs in over a century and it has since been awarded three patents.

In addition to 9mm, the LCR double-action-only model also is available in .38 Spl. +P, .357 Mag., .22 WMR. and .22 LR. The exposed hammer LCRx™, which can be fired in double- or single-action modes, is available in .38 Spl. +P. All LCR models feature replaceable ramp front sights with white bar, and a fixed U-notch rear sight. Some models are available with Crimson Trace® Lasergrips® instead of the Hogue® Tamer™ Monogrip®, which comes standard.


SureFire Rechargeable Duty Light

SureFire, LLC released its latest rechargeable flashlight. The compact P1R Peacekeeper™ is an everyday duty light with two useful output levels: 600 blinding lumens on high, and 15 lumens of extended-runtime on low output for close-up tasks. Its compact, knurled body also makes the P1R ideal for use with a handgun. There is also a single-output Peacekeeper Tactical.

Both Peacekeeper models are powered by a readily available 18650 lithium-ion rechargeable battery that’s easily charged using either an AC wall charger or a DC vehicle charger, both included with the light. It can also be powered by two disposable 123A lithium batteries, if necessary, when there isn’t the time or opportunity to charge between uses.

Weighing in at just over 6 ounces and measuring just over 5 inches in length, the palm-sized P1R packs a lot of punch without being a burden to carry. Its Mil-Spec hard-anodized aluminum body is durable and lightweight and fits in many standard flashlight holsters. O-ring and gasket seals keep out dust and moisture, while a coated, tempered window maximizes light transmission and protects the reflector and LED. Built for law enforcement, the rugged, dual-output Peacekeeper delivers exceptional performance for both tactical and non-tactical applications.

There are two models. The P1R Peacekeeper features a dual-output click-type tailcap switch. The first press or click provides 600 lumens of maximum output to meet most unforeseen emergencies; return to off and press or click a second time, within two seconds, to produce a 15-lumen low-output beam for close-up work with extended runtime. The single-output Peacekeeper Tactical operates by pressing down on the tailcap switch for momentary-on activation, or rotating the tailcap clockwise for constant-on activation. Both versions have an MSRP of $250 and come standard with an 18650 lithium-ion rechargeable battery, AC charger, and DC car charger.


Liberty Ammo .357 Magnum Civil Defense Lineup

Liberty Ammunition announced the .357 Magnum as the newest addition to its Civil Defense line of high-performance personal defense ammunition. Known for its effective stopping power among handgun cartridges, the .357 Magnum makes an excellent round for self-defense, target shooting, or small- to medium-game hunting. Liberty’s high-performance ammunition delivers approximately twice the velocity, three times the terminal effect, 16 percent less recoil, and considerably reduces the weight of loaded weapons.

In testing at Liberty’s production facility, the Civil Defense .357 Magnum achieved velocities greater than 2,100 fps. This velocity is nearly double that of standard .357 Magnum ammo. The Civil Defense line of lead-free ammunition features nickel-plated, solid copper projectiles and nickel-plated brass cases. Every round exceeds match-grade quality in performance.

Liberty’s deep cavity, hollowpoint projectile, fragments in soft tissue, providing three times the terminal effects of traditional, lead-based ammo in comparable calibers. Due to the patented, proprietary design of the Civil Defense projectile and the lead-free component, Civil Defense ammo is approximately 1/3 to 1/2 the weight, depending on caliber, of traditional ammunition, thus significantly reducing the carry weight of all weapon systems.
