Monday, June 16th, 2014

This is an announcement from Grey Group Training regarding the availability of open enrollment courses with Northern Red.

Instructors are J.D. Potynsky and Tom Spooner, who are both BCM Gunfighters.

Northern Red stands ready to provide security solutions in high-threat environments — and develop others to do the same. Shaped by the toughest military training in the world, and forged in today’s hostile and war environments, the Northern Red team is considered to be part of what some define as “The American Warrior Class.”

Their goal is to create the security and stability, nationally and internationally, to help foster peace and economic growth. Northern Red proudly takes on dangerous, complex engagements that require courage, capability, as well as the ability to work independently, creatively and strategically.

In short, Northern Red delivers… Warrior-Class Security Solutions for an Unstable World.

Here is what Northern Red has to say about training and training with them:

“In a world growing more uncertain by the minute, we need all the well-developed professionals we can get. Northern Red offers experience-based security development and tactical training to candidates who possess the courage and capacity to mitigate a wide range of dangerous combatants, scenarios and environments.

Their development programs are designed based on a combination of our instructor’s personal experiences in war zones, and their experiences in many of the world’s elite military training programs.

There will be tests of skill, stamina, improvisation, memorization and how to remain lucid under chaotic circumstances. By the end of your training, you will have been educated and focused on performance, effectiveness and solutions — the same goals and skills required of the world’s very best warriors.”

The current instructor to student ratio is 1:9.

Thursday, May 29th, 2014

Two weeks ago, we posted a sneak peak of the Rifle drill expansion for the TACOST card set from TRICON. Now, the set is fully available for purchase on the TRICON website.

Developed by Jeff Gonzales, TRICON’s TACOST (TAsk, COnditions & STandards) card set offers four different rifle training groups: marksmanship, speed, baseline, and dry fire, with 13 training exercises per group. These are kind of like training decks for other sports with different exercises or drills in this case on each card. The drills are clearly explained with information including range, rounds fired, point penalties, and a basic explanation. Additionally, the deck includes Legend and Safety Rules cards. In a pinch, the cards can also function as a full deck of playing cards, as they’re marked with all four suits and 13 ranks.

Force N Force is a brand under ATK Speer LE that deals in training and simulation rounds. Their range of 9mm training cartridges comes in blanks and marking and unmarking. The marking rounds utilize a glycerine-base which easily cleans off surfaces and clothing.

They also manufacture their own drop-in bolts for AR-15 style rifles along with 5.56 training ammunition. This training ammo also works with simulation rifles.

All their cartridges are primer only, which reduces report and introduces no fouling to the firearm. Force N Force ammunition also has a 1 ft safety distance for all ammo.
