Having the right mount is crucial for being able to survey your surroundings quickly. When you have to deal with cumbersome mounts, you risk delayed reactions and decreased accuracy. Unity Tactical has stepped up the mount game by introducing their FAST LPVO Scope Mount. This Unity Tactical mount focuses on providing a quicker sight picture than other mounts. Due to its taller optical centerline, the mount provides faster and easier reticle acquisition.

Even if you are wearing a headset, night vision goggles, or gas masks, the Unity Tactical LPVO Mount allows you to see easier, as it replicates a natural shooting position. Not many other mounts allow for the kind of heads-up posture that Unity Tactical does, making this mount an excellent choice for all customers. Also worth mentioning, this mount is perfect for fans of Low Power Variable Optics.

Lights – StreamLight Protac HL

Gun Accessories - Streamlight Protac

We can often overlook lights, as at times we figure any light will be as good as any if it illuminates what’s in front of it, right? Sadly, it’s not that simple. When you are faced with defending yourself in a low light situation, a simple flashlight will not be your friend. Instead, what you need is a light that provides clear, wide illumination, that only gives you needed vision but can even stun your target.

For anyone working in law enforcement or interested in personal protection, the StreamLight Protac HL is a great, great choice. As far as technical details, the Streamlight Protac is hard to beat. It packs a whopping 1,000 lumen with a beam distance of 270 meters, and a run time of 22 hours. It also utilizes a strobe light function to signal or disorient targets. What we love about this light is the wide covering light beam, which can be great for quickly surveying your surroundings.

It’s also easy to carry, as it comes with both pocket clips and nylon sheaths. Due to its versatility and high performance, this is the perfect light for anyone in law enforcement, or needing to protect themselves at home.
