Buck Knives has a new answer for anyone looking for a lightweight and quick-deployment folder that provides self-defense in dangerous situations. It's their new Vantage Force series, with the latest advances in tactical design and innovation.

There are three models in the series, following Buck's "good-better-best" pricing program. All have a 3-1/4" drop-point blade, which opens so quickly and smoothly with its efficient blade-flipper, you'd think it's an assisted-opener. With an over-sized liner lock and a rugged stainless steel frame, it provides ultimate strength and durability.

Top of the line is the 847 Vantage Force Pro. Made of highest-quality S30V stainless steel, the blade is black oxide-coated for a non-reflective surface, and is also available partially serrated. The handle is a combination blue-black CNC contoured G-10, with a tactile grip for maximum control and performance. It has a stainless steel reversible clip for discreet carry. It closes to a compact 4-3/8" and weighs only 4.6 oz., yet provides reliable protection for professionals who put themselves in harm's way. MSRP, $135.

The 846 Vantage Force Avid offers all the same basic features, and has a blade made of 13C26 Sandvik steel, with the same non-reflective coating, with or without partial serrations. The handle is black anodized 6061 T6 aluminum. It weighs 4.8 oz. MSRP, $95.

Also providing the essential features and benefits, the 845 Vantage Force Select has a non-reflective blade made of Buck's time-tested 420HC steel, with partial serration optional, and the handle is black glass-reinforced nylon, grooved for a sure grip. It weighs only 4.3 oz. MSRP, $60.

Adding to fulfillment of Buck's American Commitment, all three of the Vantage Force tactical knives are made in the USA, and they are backed by Buck's Forever Warranty.

Review: Smith & Wesson Shield Plus In 30 Super Carry

Before we dive headfirst into the morass that is the 30 Super Carry debate, let’s start with something (slightly) less controversial: Smith & Wesson’s Shield Plus is a supremely good pistol. Building on the success of the standard Shield and updated M2.0 versions, the Shield Plus kept critical dimensions similar to allow most gear designed for the Shield to work for the Shield Plus.
