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 […]

Flex Your Guns 2015 Photo Contest: Week #5

“Imitation is the greatest form of flattery.” My first vSBR project was a Mini Draco AK47 pistol.
