Personal Defense Training Company
Operating as usual
Thinking of adding some new classes to the schedule.. There's not much humor left in the world today so we thought we would spread a little!!!
Stay vigilant my friends!!!
So... BGD will not be open to the public for a little while.
A group of guys in Columbus stole a BMW at gun point. Drove to Newark, and ran the car into our shop. They stole a lot, and did an incredible amount of damage. Please bare with us for lay-away, delays, web orders, etc. We'll make sure you are all taken care of once the building is safe.
We take the second amendment very seriously here at ZanesViral. We come from families of sportsmen, hunters, combat veterans, and law enforcement officers.
We are unapologetically Pro-2A.
We’ve reviewed local and aspiring politicians and there is none more anti-constitutional on guns than progressive Democrat Alaina Swope who wants to be our state rep.
Her website is very clear that she wants to get to the Ohio Statehouse and try to ban the AR-15 and other rifles and require everyone in Muskingum and Guernsey County to obtain a license to even buy ANY firearm.
Like or share this post to let ANY local politician know that you stand for the constitution and will send anybody trying to infringe on those rights right back out the door they came in.
Edited: We spelled Ms. Swope’s name wrong on our original post.
Rest easy Sir.
Working with edged weapons today!! Thanks for the knowledge transfer Guardian Craft!! #trainhard,#suckless

This agency under the command of Chief Jeff Garver gave me a school commission for the academy in 1999. I worked for him for a short time before gaining employment with another agency. Today they are morning the loss of Capt. Danny Harlow, who took his own life last night. Please pray for everyone who is suffering from this loss. If you are struggling give me a call, if I can't help you I will find someone who can.
The head of a company survived 9/11 because his son started Kindergarten. Another man was alive because it was his turn to bring donuts. One woman was late because her alarm clock didn't go off on time. Another was late, stuck on the NJ Turnpike because of an accident and his life was spared. One missed his bus. One spilled food on her clothes and had to take the time to change. One's car wouldn't start. One couldn't get a taxi. One went back to answer the house phone. A man who put on a new pair of shoes that morning developed a blister before he got to the Towers, so he stopped at a drugstore to buy a Band-Aid.
When you're stuck in traffic, oversleep, miss your ride...all the little things that annoy you...maybe you're exactly where you're meant to be at that very moment. May all who perished on 9.11.01 Rest in Eternal Peace & may the loved ones still grieving find strength. 🙏🏼❤️🇺🇸 #neverforget 🎗
Rest easy Brothers..
Do you visually AND manually check the chamber with a finger to ensure that it is empty?
This was sent to us by a fan and it is a vivid reminder about firearm safety, everyone.
He thought he cleared his Remington RP9, but failed to clear the chamber before taking it apart. This is what Speer Gold Dot 9mm 124 grain JHP will do to a finger. He was able to apply a tourniquet and get to the hospital, but ended up having the finger and knuckle removed.
1. Always keep firearms pointed in a safe direction.
2. Always keep your finger off the trigger until ready to fire.
3. Always keep firearms unloaded until ready to use.
Even when you think it's unloaded, always follow all the safety rules!
Also, always keep your IFAK with you!
Here are courses that we are excited to offer!

July 8, 2020
About a year ago, a courageous group of Baltimore Police Officers risked their lives by entering into an active shooter situation in North Baltimore. One of these brave men was shot but managed to return fire, killing the suspect. Sgt. Bill Shiflett was severely wounded in this incident and could have easily succumbed to his injuries, but we all know that Bill Shiflett is one of the toughest among us and we knew he would pull through.
After a year of brutal rehabilitation, I am proud to announce that Sgt. Bill Shiflett is back to full duty. Bill did a great job fighting his way back and his family deserves a tremendous amount of respect and gratitude for all of the support and sustenance they provided him during this difficult time. I would also like to express my appreciation to Dr. Scalea and his amazing team at the R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center at the University of Maryland for their incredible work, as always.
Welcome back, Bill!
Officer Dia your life Matters. Prayers to your family. #bluelivesmatter
This class is already filling up fast!
That should not be like that😬
Running the rifles today!!! #shawnsgunisloud,#cardioisimportant,#dontshootmychains
I stole this post from a friend.
The "reasonableness" of a particular use of force must be judged from the perspective of a reasonable officer on the scene, and its calculus must embody an allowance for the fact that police officers are often forced to make split-second decisions about the amount of force necessary in a particular situation. Pp. 490 U. S. 396-397.
Apparently the Fulton County Georgia District Attorney has never heard of this. Therefore, let me educate them. It is a direct citation from the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Graham v. Conner. This is case law people, from the highest court in the land.
While this is the standard for evaluating an allegation of excessive force and not a criminal offense, after reviewing the statute for murder in the Georgia Revised Code, the actions of the charged Atlanta officer do not meet the elements established by law as malice must be present.
This constitutes malicious prosecution and incompetence. They also seem to classify a taser as a deadly weapon when in the hands of a police officer, but not in the hands of a fleeing criminal. Folks the train has officially left the track.
Smacking some steel today!!! #slingingyourriflesucks,#Stillgottaknowhow
[05/30/20] Columbus Police Department is having a rough week!! Please pray for all of our friends that are working in that area !
Prayers to the officer and his family..
*UPDATE 5/28/20 11:16am: Chief Tom Quinlan will be talking with the media shortly about our injured Officer’s condition. We will carry it live on Columbus Police Facebook.
Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost’s BCI agents are responding to assist.
POLICE INVOLVED SHOOTING:
Today, May 28, 2020 at 8:21am a Columbus police Officer was shot at 3204 Chelford Dr. (northest Columbus).
The officer was critically injured and now hospitalized.
For those who pray, please do. For those with positive vibes, we need them.
We’ll have more details as they become available.
This is outrageous!!!
On Friday the Ohio Attorney General notified us he would be abolishing 27 full-time Law Enforcement Training Officer positions at OPOTA. The Ohio Attorney General indicates he would be using “guest instructors” to teach classes. Now is NOT THE TIME when the public demands accountability from law enforcement for the Ohio Attorney General to get rid of seasoned, experienced, professional instructors and replace them with Guest Speakers! We are outraged by this action and have scheduled a call with the AG tomorrow to get much needed answers for the 27 current instructors at OPOTA who found themselves locked out and cut off at the knees Friday morning.
In the first week of May, a gunman opened fire on an elderly couple at a veterans' cemetery, killing them. Then he fled into the woods nearby.
Delaware State Police responded and engaged the shooter, killing him.
This is the Bearcat they were driving.
The officers are armed, as US officers are.
The vehicle is not. It's armored.
By my count, there have been 11 officers saved by their vests so far in 2020, two just in the past week.
Even load-bearing external vests are armor, not arms: defensive, not offensive.
The complaint about 'military appearance' is the same argument gun control advocates use to complain about weapons they find scary.
What's the difference between an ugly surplus MRAP and this purpose-built Bearcat? About $300,000.
This vehicle saved lives.
That is the truth and the reality of the matter.
Crime is risky business and the shooter knew what he signed up for; he could have ceased being a murderer but chose not to.
No apology is required for using whatever tools are needed to keep the officers safe, and none will be given.
It's not 'militarized', it's just equipment. Words mean things.
Get it right.
Somebody took the timer out of the plastic bag? I won't name any names but it sounds like Wash Jhiteman! Hope the rice works..
Definitely not the most ideal weather conditions today. However those who are serious about their firearms training should take advantage of these great learning opportunities. You don't get to pick the time, place or weather conditions!!! THE KEY TO BEING SUCCESSFUL IS TO NOT SUCK AT WHAT YOU ARE DOING!!!!
Put some country boys on the range in 30 degree weather and you end up with a camp fire and some good eats!!!
Range time at the office again!!!
