Cool to see a couple shows pop up again. Keep the banter. It's easier to listen to. Haha.

Thanks for responding to my question. I've trained with Hock a number of times when he comes to the Chicago area. My friend and I would attend and always got a lot out of his lessons, but never went to get certified. I was a bit surprised that he picked up the cheap EBBs for training, but they were pretty good for the different activities he ran. Who knew EBBs would find a place outside of cheap plinking toys? My friend and I have since supplemented Hock's teachings with the FIGHT system through Mike Lee Kanarek. It's pretty impressive and just as easy to pick up and build into muscle memory. Thankfully, I can't say that I've ever had to truly put a few years of training to practice. Can't say I've applied anything to airsoft, either, but that's also a good thing.

Its sounds great this week.

On the topic of getting out of the way of BB's, I do it all the time. When you hear a burst of BB's if you take cover fast you can get out of the way.

I would never use it if you dont have the rank. I can see that if you are in the 101st you can leave it on. If you are a PFC, well do you want to leave it on. Leave the flag on.

For my teams rank system we have a small banner at the bottom of patch. That is a good idea, I think.

The claymore that is used at the St. Louis OP's and Mil-Sims, they work great. We also play if it goes off your dead.

If you are running a Mil-Sim or OP get some of them. There great.

Alex, I'm glad you like the banter. I think it makes the show more relaxed, kind of like the talk after a good round of Airsoft. :)

You said "I was a bit surprised that he picked up the cheap EBBs for training, but they were pretty good for the different activities he ran." He also uses rubber band guns too, which I thought was kind of odd, but if you don't have the facility for Airsoft I guess it's better than nothing. At real short range it works OK, and it's dirt cheap.

I'll have to check out Mike Lee Kanarek. I've never heard of him. There are several people doing this mixed martial arts stuff. I kind of like Hock because he's laid back, and a bit more humble than a lot of the "martial arts" people I've met. His attitude is sort of "this is what I have to offer, if you don't like it then don't listen." Which I found refreshing over the Napolean Dynamite "Bow to your sensai!" (watch the movie if you don't know what I mean, it hilarious.)

I've applied some of what I've learned, I guess I just end up in the wrong place at the wrong time too often.

And Ubie, I like the Claymores too, and I think it's good to support the guys who make them. I can't wait to see what they come up with next! :)
