0046 Dave ‘Boon’ Benton and Bill Orndorf on Vehicle Defense Concepts for Civilians and LEO

Dave “Boon” Benton and Bill Orndorf on Vehicle Defense Concepts for Civilians and LEO

David and Mark are excited to bring you this conversation with Dave “Boon” Benton and Bill Orndorf about Vehicle Defense concepts for both civilians and Law Enforcement Officers.  Commonly called VCQB, which is perhaps a misnomer, this episode explores the art of fighting from within and around a vehicle and how it's more relevant to your life than you might think.

 

About Dave “Boon” Benton

Boon likely needs no introduction.  He is a US Marine Corps veteran, has a combined 24 years serving in specialized teams and leadership roles in the military, law enforcement, protective security, and intelligence community.  He has held many positions on various teams from assaulter, sniper, breacher, tactical medic, team leader, and instructor.


Perhaps more recognizably for many of our listeners, Boon is one of the warriors that fought to protect the the US Diplomatic Post and CIA Annex in Benghazi, Libya in September of 2012.  The commitment and bravery of Boon and his brothers in arms was chronicled in the book “13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi” and also the movie, “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi”.

 

About Bill Orndorf

Bill is one of the founding partners of ShootingClasses.com.  He is a former Deputy Sheriff with the Brevard County, Florida, Sheriff’s Office where he worked both patrol and in the Criminal Investigation Division.  He is a NRA certified Firearms Instructor and a member of the Defensive Marksmanship Instructor Group.

 

ShootingClasses.com

Boon and Bill are partners in ShootingClasses.com, an online portal which assists firearms trainers and ranges in administering and automating their business.

0045 What Motivates YOU? WIth Ian Strimbeck of Rune Nation

What Motivates YOU? With Ian Strimbeck of Rune Nation

In this episode, David and Mark are joined by Ian Strimbeck of Rune Nation to discuss the things that do, and should, motive each of us to be better shooters, teachers, students, Second Amendment advocates, and protectors.  As you listen we hope you think about what fuels YOU in your pursuits, and we hope that you will contact us after the show and share your own stories with us.  We might just bring you on as a guest in the future!

 

About Ian Strimbeck and Rune Nation

“My name is Ian Strimbeck and I am a veteran of the United States Marine Corps where I conducted training to host nation forces in small-unit tactics as an Infantry Rifleman. During that time I attained experience in combat and security operations and held every position in a fire team from SAW Gunner to Team Leader. I've had the opportunity to have been in multiple high-tension environments during my time in the military and therefore bring back what I've learned to you. 

Runenation is a consulting and education company specializing in the constant growth of the multidisciplinary tactician. Too often in the “gun world,” you see individuals who are drawn to a singular tool in lieu of looking at the bigger picture. It isn't solely about the gun, blade, grappling, striking, medical, fitness, or verbal acuity. It's a constantly evolving skillset that you put a varying amount of effort into throughout your life.”
