Good, positive advice! Focus on your network and your training; seek advice from those whose behavior demonstrates not only practical knowledge of a given subject, but a real concern for your skill set. It all comes down to what you
know and what you
can do during any SHTF scenario. You need to know more than just how to perform memorized tasks; you need to know the 'why' so later you can improvise if necessary. That's one of the reasons why DTG highly recommends Mason Dixon Tactical for those who are in his part of the country: He understands adult learning and ensures people get the 'why' of the training they've paid good money to attend. Lots of people know tactics; not many people really know how to teach. For more information, search our blog for posts on teaching.
