Thank you QProDefense. Kinetic Carbine 2 was a lot of fun. I'll have to take it again some time.
Another sponsor for the 2018 High Desert Classic-Spy Hard! QProDefense is going to be a stage sponsor for this years match! They are a fi****ms training company that offers precision rifle, handgun, carbine, and NM CHL training, so please go check out the services they have to offer and thank them for their support.
As we approach the Scorcher event we want to thank all of our sponsors. Without all of you we would never get this to the level it is at. We have the largest IDPA event we have ever hosted with over 160 shooters from all over the U.S. shooting. We have Wilson Combat team members, World Champions, and some talented New Mexico shooters. Come out and cheer them on June 9th at the club. Thanks to
Omni Arms USA, Platinum 10 Medical, QProDefense, Shooting For Glory, Calibers Shooters Sports Center, Shield Wall Arms, Hearing Protection Services, LLC, Los Lunas Gun Club, Intelligent Survival Research, and the countless volunteers that are coming to make it a success.
We've been though more training than we can even remember. Military, Federal, and civilian....you name it. QProDefense is by far some of the best training available. No nonsense and no filler. The curriculum is solid and the instructors are thorough and professional. The last class we attended, the Precision Rifle Course, had a good mix of experienced and novice. Everyone took something home. And everyone shot 1000 yards! QProDefense is a testament to how quality training can dramatically increase your skill set. Outstanding!
When are you going to have your next concealed carry class?
If you have taken a fi****ms training course with another instructor and would like to share your experience with someone who comments on one of our posts, please feel free to do so on the main post.

We understand that there are other great instructors in ABQ and NM and we would much rather them get training from another group of reputable instructors than to make their decision based solely on price.

We promise to only remove those comments that promote an instructor that we have received several bad comments about or those instructors who we have reasonable grounds to believe provide subpar or dangerous training.

Potential students should research their potential instructors, and we happily provide recommendations to any student who asks.

As a reminder, here are some other instructors that we would trust to train our loved ones:

-Scott Mitchell of Provident Personal Protection LLC and Duke City Krav Maga
-Triad Defense
-Perkins Protection Training
-Carlson Shooting Institute

I'm sure that I missed a couple others that we recommend. We also offer free CCW retraining for those folks who have received their NM CCL within the last 12 months but were not satisfied with the training.

Picture for attention only, it's one of our former students getting an NPA from Shawn Herrin of We Like Shooting in the Civilian Medical I Course that we took last weekend.

Quiet Professional Defense's team of instructors provide training for legally armed American citizens and law enforcement in the Albuquerque metro area.

“They’re on our left, they’re on our right, they’re in front of us, they’re behind us … They can’t get away this time.” Chesty Puller speaking of the ladies wearing KADRI pants (probably)

Resilience. Strategy.

Don't underestimate your power and ability to pivot.

Pivot away from things that aren't working.
Pivot towards new successes.

Typically, people believe obstacles are roadblocks they need to scale so they exhaust themselves trying to get through or over them.
Sometimes, obstacles are simple directional changes that require you to pivot to keep moving.

Remember what Gen O.P Smith said at the Battle of Chosing Reservoir: "We're not retreating, we are advancing in another direction."

Don't let defeat of any kind get you down. Push through or pivot. You have the power to choose.

Det 1

LOE3: History Preservation

Marine Corps Special Operations Command Detachment One (MCSOCOM DET-1) was the first unit level “proof of concept” that added Marine Corps units to USSOCOM. Up until this point, individual Marines (largely from Force Reconnaissance Companies) had held individual billets in USSOCOM, the National Mission Force and other Special Mission Units.

The core of Det One was its Reconnaissance Marines and Special Amphibious Reconnaissance Corpsmen, but what made the detachment truly unique was its integrated, task organized support elements (intel, fires, logistics etc). By capitalizing off of the professional capabilities of the Reconnaissance Marine/Corpsmen core, this task organized unit was relatively self contained (with the exception of an aviation element) and able to provide a single cohesive unit that was singularly trained, certified and focused, where other SOF units largely depended on non SOF supporting elements (e.g. intelligence) to execute the mission.

The organization and performance of Det 1 would largely be considered a model for other SOF units to emulate as was documented by the NSW Task Unit responsible for the Detachment evaluation.

This Detachment is the actual lineage to today’s MARSOC and the current Marine Raider Battalion.

Who thinks sitting in your car, driving while shooting out the windshield is a viable option when someone is actively shooting back at you? What happens to your bullet when it strikes your windshield? What’s it like sitting in a car as bullet fly through the windows and doors and skip off the hood?

I Googled “NM CHL” and look what came up. 🤨


These ladies are correct.

This incident was avoidable. If Alec Baldwin and the rest of his crew had sought education about what they were handling on set, this never would have occurred.

Basic knowledge of the 4 rules of fi****ms safety and strict adherence to them keep incidents like this from happening.

Instead of owning up to the tragedy he caused and taking responsibility, he is continuing to manipulate the facts. Triggers don’t pull themselves.

His celebrity friends and the anti-gun lobby have been strangely silent in holding him responsible. Is this because they know it is his fault, not the firearm?


Tis’ the Season

Last week APD launched it's Uptown Holiday Shopping Tac Plan. Patrols have increased in the Uptown area and at the Coronado Mall to keep shoppers safe this holiday season. Please follow these helpful tips:

- Park in well-lit areas
- Remove valuables from your vehicle
- Be alert, avoid distractions
- Lock your doors

Non descript, but alert

People don’t realize that everybody is very, very easy to kill. If I thought about how I would kill me, I really have no chance of defending myself against me. That sounds stupid, but welcome to the games I play in my head. Everybody’s vulnerable, especially if you lose your element of surprise. It’s not just about hitting your target, it’s ceasing to ever become a target yourself. I never want them to see me coming. And that’s why I kind of dress nondescript.

I wear collared shirts and jeans. I don’t have any multicam anything. You won’t see any gun stickers on my cars or anything else like that.
