  • As far as a fan base goes, I think some of it is personality driven and a lot of it is driven by the novelty the big trainers seem thrive on. I will not call what MVT teaches boring, but it is not as eye catching as some of the silly stuff the other folks who have legions of followers seem to do. Actual legitimate training, and practice is not all…[Read more]

  • Yeager has an interesting following a lot like many of the more popular trainers who are internet famous. Their acolytes will defend the instructors to the last breath in part because people invest or derive a part of their individual identity into or from the things they choose to invest their time and money in. That is the root of all fandoms…[Read more]

  • The solution to fogging is fans in the goggles combined with antifog solution on the lenses.

    A helmet liner, doo rag, or sweatband helps keep sweat from dripping onto your lenses and into your eyes if you wear a helmet. That cannot be overlooked. I used everything from an Under Armor football helmet cap to a bandana under my helmet.

    Being able to ditch any lift you attempt safely regardless of the equipment available is critical to being able to train without breaking yourself. This is super important for things like cleans that don’t lend themselves to being done in a powercage. It also matters if you travel a lot.

    Even if you have a cage or safety bars that can catch a…[Read more]

    I need to take this class! Last time I tried to get to VTC I had convinced my father to join me. I will try again.

    Since I am working on getting back East I might be able to swing the fall at the earliest.

    Don’t use that maybe as a tie breaker for your decision though. A more reasonable assessment of my long range schedule means training at VTC…[Read more]

  • I played airsoft for a while in college. If I am out of my swimlane here please disregard, but below are some of the things I learned.

    Don’t use .12g bbs in “nice” guns. They are poorly made and can shatter in the barrel. This can cause all sorts of problems with electric guns to include gearbox damage. I never owned a gas blow back gun like Max…[Read more]

  • I played airsoft for a while in college. Check your manual, but a bag of 5,000 or so highly polished seamless .20g bbs would be good start and should not cost more than $15-$20. A 5K bag would last me months. The .20 weight was the industry/community standard when I played.

    If your gun is shooting up near or a bit over 400fps with .20s (or is…[Read more]

  • I liked the initiative of the aircraft builders. That is what aviation looked like prior to 1903 everywhere after all. Before the Wright Brothers it was all crazy contraptions and comical failures. It’s not like their first bird was all that sophisticated either, it’s mostly just wood and cloth.

  • I get it now. Originally I thought you were talking about using cordage with the dangler style sheaths discussed earlier by Joe. I missed the segue. Raven Concealment Systems make a holster like that called the vangaurd. I never thought about using the concept for sheaths. Thanks!

  • @JohnnyMac, can you elaborate on the double overhand idea? I am struggling to visualize.

  • The US Army’s “have a blast this new year” is an awesome bilboard though!

  • There are a ton of things to be learned from the situation. I am not really qualified to do a true lessons learned type study, but it would be a shame if those folks who are don’t do it. It would be worse if the results of such studies are ignored by decision makers. This is doubly true since that kind of work is not easy and requires a level of…[Read more]

  • Double post. Sorry

  • The only non-tragic takeaway from the fiasco is huricane glass can stop rifle rounds.

    The killer tried to shoot through the teachers’ lounge window at students outside. It being a Florida school meant there was huricane glass in that window. Said glass stopped the rounds and possibly saved lives.

    Hopefully the event will cause a reevaluation…[Read more]

  • I just ran it slick (no gear) with 25lbs dumbells based on equipment availability. My son moved my markers so the legs for the shuttles were closer to 25 meters than 10. The kid is a brutal coach!

    Time was 5:36. I wad huffing way harder than our intrepid video denonstators though.

    This is a good workout for sure! When I get home I will try it…[Read more]

  • Last time we played this game, I was in DC. The park service tried to restrict access to a lot of public spaces with crowd control barriers and sandbags. I never did the research to confirm it, but the barriers were rumored to be leased.

    I won’t soon forget the honor flight buses unloading a bunch of WWII vets at their memorial that was closed…[Read more]
