While I was SHOT Show two weeks ago, I met Jamey Caldwell at the CORE Survival booth. He was great to talk to, with many years of experience and was a wealth of knowledge. He has his training company called 1 Minute Out to share lessons he learned in combat. He has teamed up with Emerging Tactical Solutions for an upcoming Night Vision Operators Course in Tucson, Arizona on March 15 and 16.
