  • 4 hours of shooting practice

“I usually shoot about 700 rounds between an assortment of guns from 25 yards up to 110 yards. My regimen, distances, guns used and rounds shot will ramp up as I near a hunt so I can be at my best, no matter the situation.”

“I use multiple aluminum trainer versions of virtually every Cold Steel knife to encourage a safe training environment. We practice fighting with one and two knives, as well as grappling with a knife.”
