In an era where killing cops seems to be socially acceptable, Apex Tactical Specialties continues to offer full support for Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) and law enforcement officers.
Many of you know Apex for the aftermarket trigger kits they make. A lot of you may not know how much financial support they lend to the C.O.P.S. charity.
Since November of 2016, Apex donated more than $250,000 to COPS through its Thin Blue Line Series.
If you are not already acquainted with Apex, the company is a highly regarded manufacturer of user-installable triggers for handguns.
There are different models for different guns and needs. Apex offers something for many of the popular pistols on the market, with several options being available for some.
Many of the company’s kits come as Action Enhancement Kits with parts that do not need to be filed or hand-fitted. These are easy upgrades that you can complete in 30 minutes to an hour in most cases.
For some guns the improvement is astronomical. I recently installed the Action Enhancement Trigger for the Springfield Hellcat on my personally owned pistol. I really like that gun, but I had problems with the stock trigger occasionally binding.
Not only did the Apex trigger eliminate the binding issue, but it also improved the overall feel, break and reset of the trigger stroke. It is a huge improvement.
Apex will be offering a Thin Blue Line version of the Hellcat trigger. A full 25% from each sale will go to C.O.P.S.
If you’ve been in law enforcement for any amount of time, there is a good chance you know who C.O.P.S. is and why the financial support from Apex is so important.
C.O.P.S. is a nationwide organization whose only qualification is the loss of a law enforcement employed loved one in the line of duty.
The organization supports individual survivors and families in the immediate aftermath of a tragic loss, and offers long-term support for spouses, children, parents and others over the long term recovery process. The charity supports peer counseling efforts, summer camps for kids, programs for teens and special retreats for spouses and others.
C.O.P.S. was established in 1984 and has more than 50 chapters around the country. These folks do amazing work.
In a weird time, a time where chaos threatens to swallow our country and once good people are turning their backs on law enforcement officers, I am pleased to see that Apex Tactical Specialties continues to support our brothers and sisters who still dare to face the storm.
