Fixed Blade EDC

There is a growing trend in concealed carry called the ‘dual weapon’ or ‘secondary weapon’ mindset, and it is growing with good reason. Considering the speed and simplicity of employment along with the reliability, carrying another weapon in the form of a fixed blade EDC along with your firearm is an extremely valid addition to your EDC kit.

Hard Skills: ‘Better to have and not need than need and not have…’

If any industry is defined by societal perception, it is the protection profession. Anyone who has no direct experience has the idea that the profession is nothing but shooting an AR through your front windshield at numerous threats, MMA style fighting in nightclubs or doing a J-turn because a light turned red and there are paparazzi on the corner… The laughable, off target (pun intended) perception is largely due to the media, but also due to the wannabes out there who have website who depict such. However, that being said, our job is mainly to prevent but also to respond. In the cases when a response is required, the skills need to be there. As the ISDA puts it, “when [‘stuff’] happens, you can’t be average.” This article is meant to discuss training the hard skills of the job.
