Glock Vector Industries & PFC
PV17 Handgun

Progressive FORCE Concepts and Glock Vector Industries have teamed up to create a truly remarkable handgun, the PV17.


Built on the tried and tested chassis of the Glock semi-automatic platform, these weapons aim to incorporate and modify features that will enhance performance, speed, reliability and ultimately combat effectiveness… there is no fluff here.  Each feature has a functional rationale based directly upon input from those on the sharp end.


If you readily accept the burden of stepping into harms way, then the PV17 is everything you need… and nothing you don’t. She isn’t pretty to look at, but looks aren’t everything.

CrossFit News; PFCF & The Journal



Romeo C. picking up chicks at class again… 

At Progressive FORCE CrossFit, we have athletes that come from various backgrounds. A majority of those backgrounds are Police, Fire and Military. Those members require a fitness level that gets tested on a daily basis. We use Kettlebells as one of the tools to prepare members for the challenges faced in their line of work because of the dynamic strength and conditioning benefits they provide. Jeff Martone is the founder of Tactical Athlete and he is also the Lead Instructor for the CrossFit Kettlebell Certification Course. Progressive FORCE CrossFit was recently featured in the CrossFit Journal for hosting Jeff and this kettlebell instructor course. Click on the link to learn more.
