The previously mentioned feature article I have in Combat Tactics magazine, put together by SureFire and published by Guns & Ammo, is out on the stands at stores now. 

This edition includes some new things from me.  First, it has my CQB Shotgunning article that profiles the "short-stick" technique for clearing confined spaces.  And it's my first edition as an Editor, specifically the Defensive Tactics editor.  We'll see what that brings in the future.  I'm already laying on some new articles for the next edition...I know what I want to write about but if there's something you have in mind let me know & I'll try to work it in.

Talk soon, -Matt

A recent Graham Combat Training course...

Here's a recent video clip sent to me from a great guy in last month's Graham Combat Operator's Course in the Pacific Northwest.  This clip is a representation of the types of training inherent in my classes and shows two shooters engaging from inside the vehicle through the windshield and then moving from the vehicle to an additional point.

Tactical Weapons ON SALE NOW!!!

Wanted to let you know that the feature article I did for Tactical Weapons magazine is on sale now.  The January 2011 issue has my inside look at Jordan's CTB-71 Counter Terror Unit.

Back in May of this year I was fortunate enough to be a guest of His Majesty King Abdullah II and MG Gary Harrell (USA Ret) at the KASOTC site outside of Amman.  The trip provided me with an exclusive inside look at not only the training facility but in spending time with Jordan's premiere counter-terrorism unit, CTB-71.  Stop by the local store and pick up a copy.  I think my pictures turned out great and, amazingly enough, the words I strung together seemed to make sense!  Merry Christmas & we'll talk soon, -Matt
