SO YOU WANNA BE A COP?
Strong Language Warning–probably don’t play this out loud at work or around your kids!
Full disclosure, we actually recorded this episode a little while back when our buddy Isaac was getting ready for the police academy. We wanted to take advantage of the Q and A opportunity before he kicked off his career. We have some follow-up recordings in the works with Isaac so you can check in and see how he’s doing if you’re interested. We talk about Isaac’s stupid mustache, how defensive tactics apply to different martial arts (and vice versa), the academic nature of the police academy, and what not to do at parties.
We also touch briefly on donuts, and I gotta be honest (this is Mike typing), I went back to the place we criticized (unnamed of course) and they redeemed themselves–they’re actually pretty good. Now that’s two donut eating sessions I gotta work off, so I’m gonna go swing a kettlebell for an hour…

Admit it, people like us tend to be “tactical” hoarders. But if you want your gear to actually be functional when the time comes that you need to use it, you have to put hands on it from time to time. Make sure your screws are thread locked, check your zero on your optics, pack enough water and socks, etcetera. Like any TacTangents episode it’s not just about your gear. This also has a lot to do with things like leadership, personal responsibility, and risk management.
