Message from Shawn:

Look no further for the straight dope on topics that interest you; bombs, WMD’s, current events, as well as product reviews. My articles are unvarnished, and I rarely pull a punch, so be forewarned. I put your safety foremost, so I ask the hard questions. You, as the Nations' front line, deserve to know the truth.

In my first article, I'd like to start by saying that I do not accept, nor receive, any compensation for any product. So, while you may see an item mentioned by name here occasionally, rest assured that it is here because it is a good thing, and not something I have been pressured or paid to promote.

With that said, I want to take advantage of the interactive ability of the internet; instead of me simply randomly slinging articles, if there is something you would like to know more about, or something you'd like to see covered, feel free to email me at

Shawn can also appear at your next seminar, training rotation, or help you find solutions to your technical issues. Contact him with your details and needs for more information.

Shawn recommends Tactical Response for your training needs!
