Do fancy commercials help with recruiting? I’d put my money on ‘yes’.
Those guys sure know how to have a good time. Shooting from the Ferrari window was awesome and all, the Porsche was cool too, but then Jeremy Clarkson shoots the AR-15 out of the Mercedes SLS. They were right.. gullwing doors are made for drive-bys!

One of my goals for 2012 is to try and give back more to you blog visitors. I’m really glad to have had the opportunity to work with Paul Barrett, the author of the book, and Random House to run this giveaway. At 345 total entries, your odds of winning were pretty good.
I will be forwarding all the addresses for mailing as soon as I get a reply from the latest winner. I’ve got my copy of the book sitting next to me, and I can hardly wait to read it.
If you were not one of the lucky 11, you can always pick it up on Amazon.
Thanks a lot for entering, and you can expect more giveaways/contests coming up!
Everyday No Days Off
For those that don’t get the joke, the guy (pictured) that owns the Front Sight training school is named Ignatius Piazza. Speaking of which, his advertising budget must be HUGE. If you’re into guns and haven’t been bombarded by his ads everywhere you go on the internet, then you’re not paying attention.
I know dynamic situations and 360 degree threats are often how it is in the real world, but this class looks like it has the potential to give someone a few extra holes in their body than what they came with. That said, it does look like a lot more fun that standing in a straight line on some gravel infront of some stapled up paper.
I’m guessing accidents probably don’t happen often during classes like this, but personally I wouldn’t want to be involved in that advanced of a training scenario if I didn’t already have lots of prior training experience with the guys in my group.
The class is taught by James “I put photographers down range” Yeager if you’re interested.
