The course I took from Kyle Defoor a few years back was one of the best experiences I’ve had attending a shooting course. His professionalism, attention to detail, real-world experience and no bull-shit attitude were second to none. I’ve been following Kyle over the years to see what gear he recommends and his overall minimalist approach to things. If you’re a gear guy and interested in the minimalist movement, then you need to follow Kyle Defoor and Defoor Proformance Shooting.

Trip prep 1- taking only what I need and nothing more. Two mags per gun, eyes, ears, two training blades, timer and a blue pistol- all wrapped up in a Magpul bag. – Kyle Defoor
