Ft Collins, CO –-( “Mental toughness” is probably the single most important component of your individual preparedness.

During Saturday’s knife-rampage by yet another Islamic terrorist, this time in MN, an off-duty, and properly armed, local LEO courageously [and one of our industry’s own] drew his pistol and gunned-down the perpetrator before he could inflict further mayhem on innocents.

My friend and esteemed colleague, Jeff Chudwin, reminds us all:

“Go armed at all times and stand ready to protect your family and fellow citizens.

We will continue to see this occur.

Where, when…?

(1) Where you do not look for it, and (2) when you do not expect it.


You may be ‘off-duty,’ but you are never ‘off-watch.’”

It is time for all good and decent American citizens (not just LEOs) be become “dangerous!”

“The ‘dangerous person’ is the one who has honestly confronted the moral dilemma, if any, and has decided to live. That person WILL pull the trigger!” ~ Joe Olson

Is he a full time officer who was off-duty?
Or Is he the full time owner of Defense Training International, published author, an ex chief of police and a part-time officer who was not in uniform and not on any schedule at the time?
