As the biggest producer of handguns in America, Smith & Wesson is a household name, especially for those in the tactical and military field. Founded in 1852, the Massachusetts-headquartered company has matured during the past century. While best known for its firearms, Smith & Wesson lends its name to a range of tactical products including footwear, gun accessories, handcuffs, knives and even cologne. Carrying over the same attention to detail that is found in its handguns, its tactical footwear and accessories are best known for being high caliber. Some SWAT teams are even adopting its military boots as standard issue.
