PFC Training January 2012 Newsletter

Happy New Year from PFC!

We hope all of you had a safe an enjoyable holiday season.  We here at PFC are very excited about 2012. With new training programs, updated courses, and the growing number of locations nationwide training will be offered, we have much to look forward to in the New Year.

Our January issue brings another content-rich newsletter for you.  In this edition we have two great articles.  The first is from long-time PFC instructor Chris Fry with some valuable insights on edged-weapon carry and deployment.  In the same vein, be sure to check out PFC Chief Instructor Brian Hartman’s article on holster selection criteria.  And in this month’s Instructor Spotlight series, we introduce you to Brian where he shares his thoughts on what it means to develop the cutting-edge doctrine PFC is known for.
