Armed Response to Active Shooter Scenario Force on Force 11 March 2017

Armed Response to Active Shooter Scenario Force on Force 11 March 2017

This February I participated in the Mass Murderer and Terrorist Incidents force on force scenario class offered by QSI Training. In one scenario, I stopped an active shooter, only to be intercepted by a responding “officer” played by a QSI instructor. I moved when the instructor yelled “POLICE! DON’T MO-” and was shot at medium range […]

EDC Bag 90 Day Challenge

EDC Bag 90 Day Challenge

I started carrying a PDW everywhere I went in mid-2012. I received my first NFA stamp in January 2013, and have carried an SBR or PDW since. I’ve used a few different bags, but they all shared something: they were “common” bags that were designed to carry something other than a firearm. I stayed away from bags that […]

Street Encounter Skills with John Murphy Rangemaster 2017 3×3 Review

| March 28, 2017 | 1 Comments

My third class at the 2017 Rangemaster Polite Society Tactical Conference was with John Murphy of FPF Training. I had attended several classes with Mr. Murphy the last two times I went to Rangemaster. I liked him as a person, and after attending his lecture I like him as a presenter. It was difficult to summarize a […]

When I did my first force on force training I carried a G19, a G26, and a box cutter. All of my formal, adult self defense training at the time was with firearms. I knew very little, and as such my options — and FoF gear — were limited. In the last six years, I’ve […]

That’s What She Said: LSD – Long Slow Distance

I’ve always enjoyed cardio based training. For the last 20 years I’ve tried to stay active at least a few times a week. When I worked retail or at an office I ran on my lunch hour or used the analog stairmasters conveniently located at the ends of hallways. Recently I joined a gym and […]

Some of our most popular content is about how to respond to active murders / terrorists, how to avoid being mistaken as a bad guy by law enforcement / armed defenders, and how to discern who is a bad guy versus another good guy responding to an attack. People who want to help officers in […]

This post serves as the end of my experimentation of using a bicycle inner tube to mount a knife to my belt. You can read the original post here, as well as my follow up once I started force on force training with it. Final Evaluations I continued to use the bike tube + retention line […]

Increasing My Universal Set

Increasing My Universal Set

| March 1, 2017 | 2 Comments

A Venn diagram is a drawing that shows how two or more groups of data (called sets) are alike and different. Each data set is a circle, and any common data is represented by the overlap of the circles. This overlap is called the “universal set.” About two months ago I posted about a philosophy called “Rowing the […]

I’ve been using the Raven Concealment ModuLoader Pocket Shield mounting system designed by Chris Fry (MDTS) for almost a year now. For quite some time I just carried the mid-sized TDI KA-BAR knife on it. About a month ago I added a custom made Kydex sheath made by Hawaiian Punch Industries for my ASP Key […]

Six Month Jiu-jitsu Update

Six Month Jiu-jitsu Update

| February 8, 2017 | 2 Comments

I’ve attended beginner Jiu-jitsu classes three days a week for the last six months. The Academy shut down over Thanksgiving and Christmas, and I missed a few due to work commitments or other training events. I’d estimate I’ve gone to over 65 classes so far. I am taking Jiu-jitsu from the perspective of a tool-bearer […]
