Ken Hackathorn released a sobering new video on the Wilson Combat YouTube channel. In it he discusses the “new realities” of current day America. It is well worth the ten minutes or so it takes to watch. It clarifies many of my own thoughts that I try and express here on the blog.
For those who don’t know who he is, here is a short bio from Recoil magazine:
Ken Hackathorn, was a formative force behind three-gun competitions as we know them today and is a founding member of two competitive shooting titans, the International Practical Shooting Confederation (IPSC) and the International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA). His status as a former U.S. Army Special Forces soldier and a certified deputy sheriff only furthers his real-world credibility. If that’s not enough, he has taught everyone from local SWAT teams and federal law enforcement agencies to special operation forces in the USA and elite units in nations around the globe (Germany and the Netherlands just to name a couple). Hackathorn’s wealth of knowledge and experience have made him highly sought after in the private sector. He has served as a consultant for Glock, Heckler & Koch, and Smith & Wesson, teaches classes through Alias Training & Security Services, and is also one of BCM’s vaunted Gunfighters.
He is a man worth listening to when it comes to this topic.
Be alert, get prepared, fight the good fight!
God bless and God save the Republic.
