MULE Tactical unveils AR15 hidden Glock stock

What separates the MULE stock from traditional ones, is the concealed holster inside. Attached by a large pin and clasp, the holster pivots along a hinge to reveal a backup pistol. Allowing the shooter to store both his primary and secondary weapons together.

When police in Clarksville, Ind., started wearing small cameras to record interactions with the public 2 1/2 years ago, some officers were concerned because there were few policies guiding their use and most other area departments didn't have them.

But Chief Mark Palmer hoped the move would bolster public trust and increase police accountability.
