“After three years of use and endless force-on-force scenarios putting it through the paces, the Baker Batshield® is hands down the best product on the market!”
Over four years ago our SWAT team started running the point personnel with a shield on all high-risk entries and HRT situations. We researched a shield that was lightweight, user friendly and offers the point person the option of using a long gun. We ran across the Baker Batshield® and started applying it to our tactics. After three years of use and endless force-on-force scenarios putting it through the paces, the Baker Batshield® is hands down the best product on the market!
Last year our team traveled to Blackwater for in-depth HRT training. At first the training staff felt that the shield would slow our team down. To their amazement we turned their negative comments into a holy sh*t moment. Let’s just say that Blackwater now has a few more instructors that love the shield. I would be happy to speak with any department looking to buy the Baker Batshield®.

“I wanted sincerely to thank you about the quality of your shield.”
We received the TacticalBat™ 2 days ago and I wanted sincerely to thank you about the quality of your shield. It was like Christmas day for us to get this product and for 2 days we train with a great velocity with the Baker Batshield®.

“...this product is a must have tool in our tactical and patrol duties toolbox.”
The Police Department’s Emergency Response Team has been in possession of the Baker Batshield® for some time. We have used this shield in almost every conceivable tactical training application. We have also allowed our Patrol Division to deploy this shield in the field. We as a whole feel that this product is a must have tool in our tactical and patrol duties toolbox. There are many circumstances when a typical type ballistic shield is too large or too cumbersome. During these circumstances, the Baker Batshield® is ideal. It is light, maneuverable and articulated. It fills the niche ideally.
The Baker Batshield® allows the operator to deploy a handgun or rifle on the move while still holding the shield. This attribute is one of its strongest features. I rate this shield a five (NTOA Rating). I strongly recommend this product to any agency and any division within that agency looking for a practical, lightweight, maneuverable and versatile ballistic shield.

“Firing at multiple targets patrol officers engaged the threats while moving laterally...”
Firing at multiple targets patrol officers engaged the threats while moving laterally with their M-4’s. After securing their weapons and turning around they were grinning ear to ear. Following inspection of the targets we know why.

“Officers from both departments quickly learned the specific training points and many now appreciate the advantages a Baker Batshield® affords the user during an active shooter situation...”
Just completed our first department wide Baker Batshield® training, accompanied by members of a neighboring police jurisdiction. Officers from both departments quickly learned the specific training points and many now appreciate the advantages a Baker Batshield® affords the user during an active shooter situation when compared to going in without it.

“...One of these in each trunk would be a good idea.”
I find bunkers heavy and cumbersome. However the Baker Batshield® is a folding armor shield that can be used in its carry case or out. It is a Level IIIA armor shield that is easy to train with. One of these in each trunk would be a good idea.
