TTAG’s Old Fat White Guys will no doubt remember Thunderbirds. The supermarionation science fiction series featured, uh, marionettes. Puppets prone to saying “FAB!” when given their marching orders. Unlike OFWG, FAB didn’t stand for anything, really. How fab is that? I have no idea what the letters in Israel’s FAB Defense stand for but I like the cut of their jib. Their Gotcha Cap less-lethal self-defense tool is way cool. And these GLOCK TacticSkin slide covers? I want one! OK five: black, olive drab green, desert tan, red and yellow. (Black-on-black. How tacticool is that?) The distributor’s presser [after the jump] claims the improved front and rear serrations “enable easier, more secure cocking even while wearing gloves or with cold, wet or sweaty hands.” The skin “protects the shooter from barrel and slide heat, and reduces wear and tear on the slide surface.” It’s kinda like a condom for your GLOCK. There I said it. Can I still get some freebies? . . .
FAB Defense Introduces TacticSkin Slide Covers for Glocks<
FAB TacticSkin Slide Covers are highly-practical upgrades that customize GLOCK Handguns in unique ways, to enhance visibility and style, while also improving performance and versatility. They have improved front and rear serrations that enable easier, more secure cocking even while wearing gloves or with cold, wet or sweaty hands. In addition, TacticSkin protects the shooter from barrel and slide heat, and reduces wear and tear on the slide surface.
TacticSkin comes in black, flat dark earth and OD green, to provide a highly customized look to Glock pistols. It can even be custom painted without requiring a permanent alteration of the pistol, making it a fun accessory for casual and competition shooters.
TacticSkin can be used to identify pistols loaded with less-lethal or training munitions, or to identify friend or foe in force-on-force training.
TacticSkin is made of high-grade, non-slip polymer composite, and is quickly and easily installed and removed, without needing a gunsmith. With TacticSkin installed, Glock pistols will fit into readily available Glock soft textile or leather holsters, or 10mm/45 cal. Glock Kydex or polymer holsters. TacticSkin cannot be used with Glock “C” models.
TacticSkin and hundreds of other high-quality FAB DEFENSE weapon accessories are distributed in the USA by The Mako Group. See them all at www.themakogroup.com, or ask for them at your favorite gun dealer.
