Blackhawk is the presenting sponsor of the 2022 Tactical Games, supporting the games as they continue growing.
2022 Tactical Games: Better than Ever
Attracting some of the best professional and amateur tactical athletes nationwide, the Tactical Games have become a proving ground for the latest in cutting edge tactical gear. The games feature intense physical nature, including fitness challenges, obstacle courses and marksmanship tests. That requires efficient gear setups which prioritize firearm security, retention and accessibility, as well as comfort and light weight. All of which are pillars at the center of Blackhawk’s product designs.
“Blackhawk has been a trusted name within the military and law enforcement community for decades. Through their sponsorship of the Tactical Games, Blackhawk will now be able to showcase those same proven products and designs to a new audience of athletes. They’ll see why the brand is a first choice for those seeking the very best, regardless of their profession.”Nick Thayer, Director of Marketing for Tactical Games
Security While On The Move
Blackhawk T-Series holsters with leg straps allow competitors to maintain proper holster position and security as they navigate unconventional obstacles. Endurance and speed while carrying heavy weight (especially plate carriers) is also critical. Blackhawk’s Foundation Series Tac Nylon gear gives competitors some of the lightest weight gear in its class.
“The entire Blackhawk team is fired up to be sponsoring the Tactical Games this year. As a guy who’s personally competed in the Tactical Games to prove and abuse our gear, I can say that the intensity of these challenges lives up to the hype and a quality gear setup is crucial. The light weight of the Foundation Series Tac Nylon made carrying extra weight easier, and the T-Series gave me great firearm retention while still allowing me to draw quickly and engage targets.”Justin Hoffman, Blackhawk product manager
In addition to being this year’s presenting sponsor, Blackhawk is sponsoring tactical athlete Zach Rodman. Throughout the competition, Rodman will be running Blackhawk’s T-Series holster and new Foundation Series Tac Nylon suite of gear.
Chosen by Law Enforcement Worldwide
The Blackhawk T-Series continues to be trusted by more and more LE departments as their standard issue duty holster. Both in the U.S. and abroad, the T-Series has been chosen by more than 300 law enforcement agencies. Most recently, the French Army and the Niedersachsen Police Department in Germany selected the T-Series L3D holster.
Foundation Series Tac Nylon gear offers more modular capabilities than the typical ballistic nylon gear found on the market. At the series’ core is a durable 500D-1000D nylon laminate material and a low-profile, laser-cut design. This delivers one of the lightest plate carriers available (around one pound without armor) without sacrificing durability. In addition to plate carriers, it features a chest rig, MOLLE and first responder placards, and more.
The first of the 2022 Tactical Games’ nine competitions takes place February 19-20 at the Meridian Public Safety Training Facility in Meridian, Mississippi. The series culminates November 5-6 at the Tactical Games National Championship at Reveille Peak Ranch in Burnet, Texas.
