Training is my passion, I live for the moment when a student’s eyes show the “AH HA” moment. Shooting and prepping are just the medium I use to teach. I am pretty sure that if I was a plumber I would work at a tech college teaching plumbing.
In this category I have posts informing of upcoming classes, class reviews, and information related to training. Some of these posts are tips, others are how to information. Some is mindset.
Many of the posts in this section are duplicated elsewhere as appropriate – mostly in self defense, some in mindset (which used to be called academic), and elsewhere as appropriate.
Just by going to websites like this, you are way ahead of the general populace. If you go ahead and actually prepare you are light-years ahead of most.

Many studies have shown that students who are involved in extracurricular activities are far less likely to develop dangerous habits like smoking and drug abuse. Despite the heavy evidence supporting these facts, only 2.6 million of students from the ages 12-17 are actively enrolled in such activities.

I subscribe to a Good, Better, Best philosophy when it comes to preparedness resources. I would rather have a good piece of equipment RIGHT NOW, than have plans to buy the best most ultimate piece of gear someday.
