I had the privilege of training with Kyle Defoor in the past and can confidently say that he is one of the top instructors out there. You can take any one of his courses, no matter your skill level, and learn something new. The small break out sessions that Kyle conducts throughout his courses are just as valuable as the shooting which includes mindset, medical and combatives. Kyle has been around the block when it comes to gear selection too. If he says something is good to go, then it’s good to go. Check out what he has to say about the Crye JPC plate carrier he uses.

Crye JPC. If the people I’m training with wear armor so do I. Additionally, it’s mandatory for all services for RSOing CQB which we do a lot. I’ve been using it for years and I love it. I wish I had it when I was active. I use a 40oz. Bladder on the back, 3 mags, and two accessory pouches. The blade is a SOG Pentagon with Sayoc sheath mid-mounted and modified handle.”
