Tactical Training.

This past Saturday a small group of us went over to N.W. Tactical (http://www.nwtactical.com), for a little “Urban” combat training. Originally, N.W. Tactical opened for police and military training; however, in recent months they have started opening their doors to small private groups. Our “war game” lasted for about 5 hours, which consisted of six missions with tactical review and setup before and after missions. We were split up between two groups of six (police vs. sheriffs); in full on SWAT gear and fully automatic air assault rifles. N.W. Tactical has about 20,000(ish) square foot of warehouse space, which is modeled to look and feel like a small city. Some interesting buildings to note in their space were:

1. Chinese Restaurant
2. Bank
3. Crack House
4. Strip Club
5. 3 Bedroom House

At the end of the day, my team won five of the six missions… I attribute that to stunning mission planning and copious amounts of playing Halo.

Below are some pics taken during our missions. The first pic is of me in the Chinese restaurant.

Pics from the 2004 SEMA Show in Las Vegas.

As promised, here are a few pics from this year’s SEMA Show 2004. I was not able to see everything given the shear size of the show… enjoy the eye candy from the show.

My personal favorite pic is the one of me and the girl from Over Hauling on the TLC.
