I have worn my Wilderness Tactical Instructor belt almost every day I’ve worn pants or shorts since the summer of 2011. To be honest, I don’t wear pants or shorts every day, but that’s not why you’re here. The belt has been great, except it has a large buckle. The buckle is meant for emergency […]

Force on Force Training: Mall Attack

| December 10, 2014 | 3 Comments

One of the scenarios I prepare for the most is a sudden attack at a public location. Attacks at soft targets like malls, schools, workplaces and churches make up the vast majority of active murderer situations.
